When Janice decides to attend the process improvement meeting with Mr. Haskins, instead of checking on her patient Mrs. Wemberly, then Janice is not putting her patient’s needs . She has to realize that her primary responsibility as a nurse is to care for her patient’s needs. Mr. Haskins may be pleased with her because she made it on time to the meeting but it does not justify her action that she neglects her patient. In the meeting, Mr. Haskins shows unfairness after he considers the physician’s request for private rooms but disregards Jenny’s appeal to reconsider the environmental issue despite its importance.

"My Mother Never Worked" by, Bonnie Smith-Yackel My reader response to this essay, "My Mother Never Worked" by Smith-Yackel, was that, I was shocked when the family did not get the death benefit check. Apparently, Smith-Yackel’s mother worked very hard during her life, but all her hard work was not considered “labor” because she did not bring-in money from a public job to her family. Just because the government does not consider her time and labor to be equivalent to “employment”, it does not mean she did not do anything to provide for her family, just by being a mother is a job itself.
The patient allegedly lived in a dark, moldy, basement suit away from the city, and had a hoarding problem. The friend reported that the patient had no mode of transportation to and from dialysis and other appointments. There was no other documentation or acknowledge of this previously, therefore it was important that we ensure that the interdisciplinary team was aware of this so the necessary supports could be made for the patient as she was due to go home next week. 2,6) Throughout this practicum, I have helped maintain dignity for each of my patients, both medical and rehab patients.
Bonnie Smith –Yackel in “My Mother Never Worked” is remembering her mother with the feelings of disdelief of how society views a stay at home wife. While some differences between “My Mother Never Worked” and “I Want a Wife” are evident, the similarities are noticeable. Most of Society has the belief that because a woman is just a housewife, she does not work. The federal government saids “a woman who is a homemaker, who has never been a wage earner, is eligble for Social Security benefits only through the earnings of her deceased husband (Smith-Yackel 118). Bonnie Smith-Yackel I believe is shocked, and upset as she has realized, how hard her mother really did work.
The problem is a universal one where numerous nursing positions are left vacant as less individuals are becoming interested in the career or experienced ones are choosing different career paths (Fox & Abrahamson, 2009). To solve this problem, nursing positions will be filled with certified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) who are capable of performing basic nursing functions. The EMTs would work under the supervision of experienced nurses and report to the administrative nurse of the day for quality assurance. EMTs would be working in part-time positions rather than full time to reduce spending. Through EMTs, frustrated nurses who feel overwhelmed with their tasks and feel the need for assistance will be less stressed and gain the ability to focus on heathcare.
The first step in this assessment is to look at the biological factors influencing this case. The social worker has virtually no information from the family about their biological history and family illnesses. It is known that the mother of the family is chronically ill but it is unknown with what disease or disorder. She is on pain medication to maintain daily functioning and has to visit her doctor on a very regular basis. This would cause a huge strain on the mother, as well as the family as they are worried about her well-being and taking care of her, as well as having to schedule her appointments, transport her, and pay for the medical expenses.
D-The patient arrived on time for her session and informed this writer that she has decided to remain with the clinic as she learned on her own that no detox facility will accept her because she is testing negative and currently on methadone. The patient further mentioned that she is questioning as to whether or not her sister and her mother would help her as they said they would; however, the patient had a moment and looked back when her family did not help her as she struggled with her children.

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
This is something that is happening all over our world today. People who need assistance will never receive it because of their position. Many people die each day to things like diarrhea and the cold because they can’t afford a typical check up. “Based on poor access to health care, 1 billion people have no chance of ever seeing a doctor in their life (Infographic).” This is a fact that even pertains to people in America.
