They explained that staff rarely offered to give them a break, had to provide their own equipment from home, medication and incontinence pads. The respondents in Ali et al (2013) also expressed their grievances about the lack of support they receive when in hospital with their clients. Some carers found it emotionally draining caring for the needs of their client, and often resulted in stress, with little or no help from their family or staff. Backer et al (2009) report stresses the importance of supporting the carers and the need to show a positive regard for their role and knowledge of people with intellectual disability. The report, emphasises that carers knowledge is a vital source of information and that nurses need to listen to what they have to say in order to provide optimum care.
For example, a conversation between a social care worker and an older person might trigger an unconscious response in the social carer that could lead to discrimination against the service user. Therefore, if the social care worker is not tuned into their own emotional needs, reflecting on a regular basis, being mindful and attending supervision, they could be placing the welfare and safety of their service users at risk of not receiving proper care and attention. The social care worker should be someone who genuinely wants to work with vulnerable older people. Be consistent and congruent in their careing roles. Good communication skills are essential and following guidelines and HIQA standard to ensure best practice at all time.
The LGBTQ community has also been oppressed. They were described as ‘sinners’ by dominant groups. They were stereotyped to more likely molest and rape heterosexuals.

In other words, the majority of society is imposing the concept of injustice on women and minority groups through the means of unfair treatment and justification of those actions by attributing them to disability. As a result, the majority gains the power of authority over the inferior groups, exhibiting hegemonic ambitions (DOC 1). Hegemony can be defined as the cultural and materialistic oppression of certain groups based on their associations, which was being done to the subordinate groups. Both concepts of domination and subordination and hegemony closely intertwine into Baynton’s definition of “disability”, as both involve an oppressor group that creates roles in society for minor, submissive groups, in order to gain political and economical power over others through the label of disability. In the case of justice, both these ideas contribute the dismissal of this notion of impartiality by creating terms of inequality among every group.
Qualitative research is based on numerical findings it is useful and easy to interpret and more effective Figure 2 This figure shows the increase employment rate for single mother since 1989.

This portrayal of causes a misconception and stereotyping of gender roles by the media viewers. In this research, perception of young adults are taken as they play a big role in social
However, the care worker may abuse this power and if a service user had unacceptable behaviour they may be punished rather than being told what their doing wrong, because most care workers complain about their salary, they choose not to do specific things as they complain about “not being paid enough for this” this can lead duty of care being appaling as they may leave individuals who may need support in changing leave them be in an uncomfortable situation for a long duration of time. Respect and Dignity can also be harshly discriminated as care homes may serve bacon to service users who are muslim which is forbidden,this can happen with individuals who have dementia as they may not remember their beliefs. In an old care home, most individuals are capable of doing activities individually, however if they are always helped , they can feel less in control and lack in free choice.

When service users are not being treated properly they can become unhappy with the setting and eventually depressed lacking in self image and self
The study elucidated the lived experiences of critical care nurses experiencing compassion fatigue. Eidetic or descriptive phenomenology alone was not enough to suggest intervention or be a basis for such. It is because it is considered “weak” evidence by some. However, such a study is a great basis for future studies (Polit and Beck 2012). With the advent of studies about compassion fatigue, the researcher highlighted its effect on the health care facility especially in a critical care setup.

It also talked about how discrimination is associated with negative physical health outcomes such as hypertension like discussed earlier in the paper.
