Future implications for major franchise’s that serve coffee like Starbucks should have safety accessories that locks the lid. This means the coffee lid is locked and secured there is no way of opening the lid. Customers know how many cream and sugar they want in their coffee, so once the employee makes the coffee the way the customer wants it the lid locks. There is no way of opening the cup, however there is a small tab hole for the customer to use a stir stick to stir there coffee to perfection the way they desire. Another implication is having coffee cups stating not liable if spilled on you in bold letters, or even have the current caution labels bigger on coffee cups.
It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
In understanding Plague disease, it is important to learn about the possible treatment of the disease as well as prevention mechanisms. Understanding the causative factors and the transmission mechanisms can help understand how to keep the disease at bay. The main ways of preventing plague is through sanitation and having limited animal contact. Since plague is common in rodents and can be transmitted through fleas, it is important that rodent habitat to be reduced in areas around the workplace as well as around homes. Removing brush, rock piles, junk, clutter firewood as well as possible rodent food supplies as well as making homes rodent-proof.
Sontag explains how people with cancer should not feel cursed or punished, but instead see it as traveling to the “kingdom of sick.” Metaphors can help the general public understand difficult subjects and concepts, but become detrimental when people are defined by their illness or condition. A common misconception is “any disease that is treated as a mystery and acutely enough feared will be felt to be morally, if not literally, contagious” (Sontag 6). The cultural myths about diseases stigmatize and shame those affected and the illness itself. Cancer and TB can all be physically exhausting and sometimes even more emotionally draining because of the negative view society has. Over time
Extended use of catheters contributes to the risk of infection and damage at the insertion site of the device. When clients fail to clean the devices correctly device accumulate a build of microbial activity and colonization of bacteria around the insertion sites and catheter hubs. The cause can be prevented from continuous follow-up with patients who are taking care of their catheters from home. This is the point of most infections due to inability for clients to maintain adequate cleaning themselves or family care is not able. Decreases have presented in clients whom
One of the major lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, play an important role in fighting bacterial infections while T lymphocytes help fight cancerous cells, viruses and foreign substances. When our body is under attack, in terms of stress-related issues, the lymphocytes take over and try their hardest to fight off the diseases and foreign substances. Furthermore, it was shown in studies that stress similarly depresses the immune system, which ultimately makes the body more vulnerable to illness. Stress on the body and internal organs can lead to
As mentioned previously, biohazardous wastes can cause critical viruses in humans or diseases. Without things being done properly, missing the simplest step, could be more than dangerous. Just as the possibility of bacterial growth, affects more than just those in the room of the lab. Exposure to unwanted chemicals is a major risk, and keeping up with the guidelines is more than important. To have the best outcome, without minor mistakes, and no chance of health risks, following a safety checklist can be helpful.
Since transplant patients now have to use immunosuppressants, that raises a risk to the environment. Laura Purdy states that, “an immunosuppressed environment encourages bacteria and viruses to flourish, unchecked by the host's defense mechanisms.” With this being said immunosuppressants can spread many “infections” to surrounding areas. Xenotransplantation would be very nice if we would like to have a disease filled environment. These generalizations such as the community, risks, cultures, and zoonotics of Ethics are some of the many reasons why Xenotransplantation should not be
N.p.). Polio, a viral disease, infects the body’s intestines, therefore not showing any real flu-like symptoms moreover, making the disease that much more life threatening (WebMD n.p.). A bacterial disease that causes infection and swelling in the brain and is easily spread through kissing or airborne contact is known as meningitis (WebMD. N.p.). Additionally, because of the countless way a child can become ill in our unsanitary world, children should be vaccinated to prevent the deadly factors of diseases.
Safe medication administration is a big aspect of nursing care, because if medications aren’t given safely, then it can lead to some serious adverse effects to the patients. There are many things that can go wrong, and that’s why nurses have to be very careful when handling and giving medications. Nurses can make mistakes, and give the wrong med, give it to the wrong person, or even give too much or too little of the drug. Careful medication administration can lead to not making big mistakes that can lead to hurting others. “Medication Administration is a complex multistep process that encompasses prescribing, transcribing, dispensing, and administering drugs and monitoring patient response.” (Anderson, 2010).
