Daniel David Palmer simply added the philosophy of chiropractic from already known spine manipulation practices from thousands of years before. By extensively studying anatomy and physiology, Palmer was able to create a practice that changed the medical health field and structured the chiropractic idea. Palmer named the profession “chiropractic” by using the latin words cheir (which means ‘hand’) and praktos (which means ‘done’) hence the full sentence; Done by Hand ("Chiropractic Care." 2011). In September of 1895, Palmer had begun the first Chiropractic spine alignment procedure.
Sushrata and Hippocrates stated that distal limb amputations could be tolerated well and obviated need for use of a tourniquet to control bleeding. Later Celcus, a Roman surgeon popularized the technique of ligating major vessels during amputations to control bleeding. John Jones (1729–1791) was the first to emphasize the importance of life over limb in his textbook published on management of surgical wounds and fractures during the American independence war. He advocated that the need to amputate limbs as part of a lifesaving procedure was primarily the decision of the operating surgeon. The importance of his guidance for the war surgeon was the emphasis of life before limb and the need for adequate

The Civil War was America’s bloodiest war. Soldiers were not only dying from battle itself, but from the daily practices the military had in place. Medical care and response was lacking organization resulting in many preventable deaths. In 1862 this all changed with the appointment of Medical Director Jonathan Letterman, who focused on how soldiers were being treated both on and off the battlefield. Jonathan Letterman was crucial to the Union’s victory because he advanced civil war medicine and made it more accessible hence why his gravestone describes a man “who brought order and efficiency into the Medical Service and who was the originator of modern methods of medical organization in armies" (Arlington National Cemetery).

According to Lampe (2013) a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a graduate prepared advanced practice nurse that provides expert clinical care in a specialty population and practice in a variety of settings. Generally speaking their practice is specialized in a clinical area that can be identified in terms of: population, setting, disease or medical subspecialty, type of care, or type of problem. The main difference between a CNS and NP is that the CNS practices in a specialty population, and the NP can treat a larger population. Rules and regulations vary for CNS depending on the state in which they choose to practice. Rights for prescribing medications to patient range from independent prescribing authority to no prescribing authority.
In the 1960s congress had chartered the blue star mothers of America as veterans service organization. In the War World ll they practiced displaying the service flag and became more widespread.

Introduction Florence Nightingale, who lived from years 1820 -1910, was one of the pioneering theorists in the nursing history. She was the first to provide a theory to improve and develop health and transform nursing from a domestic service to a permanent profession. Since a young age, she cared for the poor and ill people and considered nursing and serving humans as a Christian duty (Selanders, 2012). Her contribution in providing nursing care for British soldiers fighting the Crimean War and negotiating with the male worlds of both the military and medicine with her administrative skills was significant (Woodham-Smith, 1983). Nightingale founded the Nightingale Nursing School in London in 1860 and created the foundation theory for practice and education of the nursing world.

On March 30, 1842 he successfully removed a tumor from James Venable under sulfuric-ether. James woke up in a little discomfort, and no memory of the surgery. However, he did not publish his findings in writing. He also was a surgeon during the Civil War to both sides in Athens, Georgia. In 1846, Dr. William Morton was wrongly credited of being the first person to have used sulfuric-ether as a sedative for surgery.
Soon after officials realized the medical system needed to be revamped, the ambulance corps was put in place. The Ambulance corps was established to sort soldiers in regards to the severity of their injuries, and from there, the wounded soldiers would be transported to hospitals or remain where they were based on their injuries. This corporation played a major role in deciding which soldiers were likely to recover, and for the soldiers who were unlikely to make it, the corporation would make them as comfortable as possible and keep them in field stations away from the
The department of Veteran Affairs ensures the care and honor for our American Veterans. Its mission statement is “to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise “to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan.”” Veterans have many different benefits such as disability compensation, health care, life insurance, education and training, and pension, just to name a few. Benefits not only apply to the veteran themselves, but also to their spouse and dependents. The Veterans Health Administration is “America’s largest integrated health care system with over 1,700 sites of care serving 8.76 million Veterans each year.” Dating back to 1636 when Pilgrims were at war with Indians, the U.S. has the most inclusive program of
Patients who are admitted into the hospital confide in the health care professionals to do the right thing on time all of the time. Accreditation of health care organizations signifies compliance with a set of standards, reassuring the public that quality and patient safety is being met. In the United States, accreditation is voluntary and must be approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, CMS, for the health care organization to receive payment from Medicare or Medicaid (Myers, 2012). According to Ellis and Hartley (2012), the Joint Commission was established by the American Colleges of Surgeons and Physicians, the American Medical Association, and the Canadian Medical Association in 1951. It is a voluntary, non-profit organization
The physician assistant occupation truly began in 1965 when a considerable shortage of physicians brought forth a breakthrough. At this time there were also many corpsmen returning from the Vietnam War with adequate skills to access surgical conditions but without the formal education. A man by the name of Dr. Eugene Stead then created a program at Duke University to give these people formal training and education. By the time they finished their two-year fast-tracked program these individuals would be equipped to provide medical care to underserved populations and rural communities under the direction of a physician. For centuries nations have looked for ways to meet military, and public health needs, as well as providing care to rural and underserved areas where physicians did not exist.
