This makes self-treatment essential, which if not performed properly can negatively influence their health. All of these factors can lead to financial hardships and distress upon those in rural locations. Similarly, people in city locations can also suffer medically due to the higher cost of living. They may struggle to pay bills resulting in them having public health care. Due to the lack of hospital beds and long waiting periods, they will have an increase of pain and distress, resulting in a negative impact on their health.

From an economic standpoint, euthanasia is a brilliant alternative. Though many see it as unethical, it may be relieving for the victims to know that once they’ve passed they’re no longer considered burdens to their families. Though harsh, keeping a terminally ill person alive for a year costs no less than $55,000, dying in a dignified way is their last resort when they know their condition is not going to improve. Many patients with incurable diseases have stated that the lengthy and expensive time and operations granted by their families are not worth the few extra months they get of spending time on Earth.
When an adult has to stay home from work they are losing money due to the fact that they are not getting paid to go to work and they have to spend money on medicine and doctors visits. In Addition, reams of money could be saved in not just the US but the whole world. As said by UNICEF, an organization that helps children all over the world “That $6.2 billion could be saved in treatment costs if the vaccines were more prominent in the world’s poorest countries. ” (“Should Any Vaccines Be Required for Children” n.pag.). When people in our world get vaccinations, they help others by not getting others sick so they are saving money on medical costs as well as the person that got the vaccine.
This concern is irrelevant for two main reasons: preventative care allows for larger health problems to be avoided if they’re caught sooner and when people are able to get treated by a physician they are able to take less time off work due to illness. In the long run, this will save the government money. If the government were to provide preventive care, terminal diseases could be caught early so that these diseases could be treated in their earlier stages. Catching these ailments early can help reduce the cost of what it may cost to treat these in the later stages of the disease. Also, according to Bruce Jaspen, a writer on forbes.com, sick days cost the government over $576B annually.
Furthermore, many of VF’s garment contractors were very small and operated on razor sharp margins with negligible buffer capital. These contractors were not well positioned to handle sudden fluctuations in their working capital, leave aside handling the effects of an economic crisis. One of VF’s Nicaraguan jeans suppliers which supplied close to 15 million pairs of jeans per year was affected by the crisis and decided to relocate to Vietnam and in the process provided VF with less than 3 months’ notice to find a replacement. VF had a hard time finding an alternate supplier. Second, the changing structure of the apparel industry was a major cause of concern for VF and could have long-term impacts on VF’s operations.
The lack of financial resources can be a big problem to access to health care. The lack of available finance is a barrier to health care for many Americans but access to health care is reduced most among minority populations. The irregular source of care is another reason why access to health is a disparity. Compared to white individuals ethnic or racial minorities are less likely to be able to visit the same doctor on a regular basis and tend to rely more on clinics and emergency rooms (News Medical Life Sciences). 5.
In recent years it has become apparent that regulations on cosmetic surgeries are greatly lacking because of the horrific outcomes of numerous procedures. Not only do “44% of cosmetic surgeons don’t have proper equipment” but “50% of patients receive inadequate care” (“Plastic Surgery Injury and Negligence Statistics”). That is inexcusable. America is known for being ahead in medicine and surgeries, yet they fall behind when it comes to the safety of their patients. Other countries prioritize the well-being of the patients by creating rules and regulations, but it appears that America lacks in these aspects in the medical world.
The number of Certified Nursing Assistance (CNA) to patients or residents is becoming a horrible problem. Patients do not get all the care they need or deserve because the certified nursing assistant ratio to patient is not what it should be. Certified nursing assistant jobs are not an exciting or even a job you would think about perusing, but it is an important job for people that can not take care of themselves like they should. Especially for people with dementia, ole timers, or any other illness. Only California, Nevada, Texas, Ohio, Connecticut, Illinois, Washington, and Oregon have a law where you have only a certain number of patients to CNA’s for each shift.
Corruption in the health sector can be life threatening and poor people are the ones which are mostly affected by this since the medical staff may demand bribes to attend to patients, for skipping the queue and also they may use medicines of a sub-standard quality. World Bank surveys show that in some countries a maximum of 80% of the non-salary health funds never reaches local facilities. The following table taken from the world bank website provides a brief summary of the evidence available for the health sector in Ghana, Peru, Tanzania and Uganda. Where there is high leakage clearly shows inadequate funding making good service seem impossible. This means that the people are unfairly treated since the patients have to pay the expenses of what was supposed to be free health
“Many Americans have not been able to keep their doctors as insurers try to offset the added cost of Obamacare by limiting the number of providers in their network” (5 Reasons 1). This could cause many problems for people who are away from home and in need of medical assistance. There is a significant chance that the nearest doctor many not be in their network as around 50% of insurance networks will be limited under Obamacare. Further than that, “40% are classified as ‘ultra-narrow’” (5 Reasons 1).
It is unrealistic because not all people can afford health care, for example the Lacks family because “Henrietta’s family can’t even go see a doctor because they can’t afford it” (Skloot, 2010, p. 180). The quality of health care all depends on what kind of insurance people have and if they have the money to afford it. Also, there are still limitations to treat or cure certain diseases that people have, such as HIV, diabetes, and more, so quality health for all is impossible today. However, many scientists and researchers are working on it to cure those diseases and medical progress has come far compared to the
Finally they explain what steps they believe that should have been taken in order to help the citizens of New Orleans. They explain that the federal government non ability to handle the health care crisis especially when they had the chance to show the world the power of the United States. They first suggest that President Bush could have better distributed funds to the affected area and people by better supporting clinics running. Also they could have helped prevent the mental health care problems that would have followed the disaster through giving those in need access to mental health care. They also show how the 5 month period to get those in need as too long and the government should create an emergency Medicare system that can be called on incase of disaster.
The main cause of this is the disparity between federal and private sector salaries. In an effort to remedy this situation, due to the number of enrollees who reside in rural or highly rural communities, the VA offers recruitment and retention bonuses along with student loan repayment in order to entice physicians to work in rural areas. This is why the VHA has attempted to make rural outreach a priority, by creating the Office of Rural Health to address the concerns and needs of rural veterans. The biggest of these concerns involved lack of access to healthcare because of transportation difficulties that include travel distances, lack of transportation, or the inability to drive, these issues affect 33% of rural residents (Buzza, et. al.).
There is wide-spread anxiety about this procedure, but it is usually simple and safe. It does entail insertion of a needle, and it is therefore uncomfortable. Also, about 25 percent of the people who undergo this procedure experience some headache after the fluid is removed, but it is server only about five percent of the cases.
