Another major factor of Thao's medication error was fatigue. That had been picking up extra shifts, including the one in which she worked on the fourth of July. Her lack of proper rest and not giving her mind time to receive those eight hours caused the confusion between the two IV containing the two kinds of medication. Despite the fact that Thao had been a nurse for several years prior to the event, Thao did not follow the proper protocol to ensure that patient's safety. She gave her un-prescribed medication which resulted in Jasmines death.
An experience I had involving ethics in relation to an interprofessional collaboration was in my present nursing case. Prior to me starting my patient a 13-year-old girl had a severe asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest, died and was brought back to life this past February. Although the EMTs were able to bring her back, she has been in a coma ever since. What makes this case an ethical dilemma is that several months ago the doctors wanted to diagnose her as brain dead and remove her from life support. Through the use of medical terminology, lack of understanding about her daughter’s condition and unempathetic doctors they managed to convince the mother that her child had no hope of survival.
I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
Stephanie remained on ventilator support for six weeks while Fairfax searched for another hospital to transfer her to, but no other hospital would accept her. After the baby was weaned off constant ventilator support, the mother agreed to move the child to a nursing facility, but the baby returned to the hospital many times for respiratory problems. Legal proceedings When baby Keene was admitted to the hospital at six months of age for severe respiratory problems, the hospital filed a legal motion to appoint a guardian for the child 's care and sought a court order that the hospital did not need to provide any services beyond palliative care. At trial, several experts testified that providing ventilator support to an anencephalic infant went beyond the accepted standard of medical care.In

Cammie’s friends were originally just mad at her for leaving them behind and worried about her, that they didn’t think about being mad at her for leaving, so once she returns, they finally start being angry at her for running away in the first place.

According to Voorhis of 2007, there was once a 37-year-old woman who has never been pregnant with her 40-year-old husband who have been attempting to conceive a child for the past 3 years. But because of their anxiety that what is really happening on them, they decided to consult a doctor to check what really their condition is.

My older sister, Maggie, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of eight, but I remained uneducated. I worried about Maggie, but I wasn’t sure why? Then, two years ago I when I was diagnosed, I got crash course! Up until freshman year, I still asked my mom which type of Diabetes Maggie had-- 1 or 2. There is nothing more frustrating then being asked that question when you’re a Type 1 Diabetic.
Many families cannot thank the donor’s families enough, just like Khalieghya and her family cannot. Khalieghya was diagnosed with biliary artesia as an infant-- blockage in the tubes that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder. She had many surgeries, but they were unsuccessful. Doctors informed her family that the only way that she would survive was if she received a liver transplant; with that being said, she was finally placed on the national transplant waiting list. Khalieghya’s family received word when she was five months old that the doctors had found a liver match because another child passed and the family members were generous enough to donate the child’s organs.

The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
This disease is especially concerning for the elderly population. Among those killed was 68 year old mother and grandmother, Bertie Marble. On her second trip to the Flint Medical Center, Marble weakly told her daughter that she “didn 't know what was wrong.” She stayed in the hospital for weeks and died there after her heart had stopped twice. Although her death certificate read “cardiac arrest brought on by septic shock due to pneumonia”, deeper in her medical records legionella is mentioned multiple times. The legionella bacteria made its way into the hospital’s water system and had been infecting patients and others living in Flint.
