Some women believe abortions are giving them rights but having an abortion is not the only way. Adoption is a much better option over abortion. An unwanted or unplanned pregnancy can scare some. This leads many rushing into abortion looking for a “‘quick fix.’” The American Adoption Agency stated, “...for every 149 women who choose abortion, only one woman chooses adoption” (American Adoptions, Inc). The percentage of infants being put up for adoption has decreased from 90,000 in 1971 to 18,000 in 2007.
Appendix NCLEX Questions The following two alternate format NCLEX questions were created related to the case study information and focus on the nursing responsibilities prior to blood administration and the signs/symptoms of acute hemolytic transfusion reactions. NCLEX Question #1 The RN on day shift is looking after Anita, a 93-year-old female patient in with an upper GI bleed. Anita’s latest lab results show an Hgb of 62 g/L. The registered nurse notifies the physician, who then orders for Anita to receive 1 unit of packed red blood cells (PRBCs). What are some of the nursing responsibilities before administering the ordered PRBCs?
The “nonprofits Samaritan Health System and Lutheran Health Systems announced their merger” on Sept. 1, 1999 (Banner Health). For the Samaritan Health System, it was founded in 1911 and “provided clinical excellence in California and Arizona”; as for the Lutheran Health Systems, it “had a long-standing dating from 1938 as a respected health care provider in rural communities located across Wester Midwestern states” (Banner Health). The two Health Systems merged to benefit those in hospitals and provide high-quality care. As they began their journey of the Banner Health, it was in “14 states, had 22,500 employees, with 32 hospitals and 2,882 beds” (Banner Health, 2017). The Banner Health continues to grow as one of the largest care systems and
Background and Purpose: Microperc using all-seeing needle is associated with reduce tract-related morbidity. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness and safety of microperc in children. Patients and Methods: From July 2010 to August 2014, a total of 17 patients with renal stones underwent microperc at our institution. Renal access was achieved through 4.85-Fr (16 gauge) all-seeing needle under direct vision and fragmentation with 200 µm holmium:YAG laser fiber. The patient’s demographic data, operating time, hemoglobin drop, complications (Clavien-Dindo), and length of hospital stay were prospectively studied.
Impacts of the Flu Vaccination Do you get your yearly flu shot? Well you may want to after knowing that the flu kills more Americans than any other vaccine preventable disease. It’s a virus mostly caused by influenza A and B, but can be spread through people, animals, and objects. Ever since the invention of the flu vaccine, only 5-20% of Americans catch the flu every year, way less than before it was invented when 40 million people were dying from it. That’s why the flu vaccination is such an important biological discovery and has had a positive social and economic impact on America.
After completion of study , results of 70 patients with bronchiectasis have been analysed. Clinical data for all patients was reviewed and following observations and results were documented. Descriptive statistics like mean, standard deviation[SD] and percentage[%] were used to express the data. 1. GENDER DISTRIBUTION : TABLE-1 DISTRIBUTION OF STUDY GROUP BY GENDER GENDER NUMBER OF PATIENTS PERCENTAGE Males 42 60% Females 28 40% The total number of patients involved in the study were 70.
The challenge is to reduce the difference in mortality and morbidity rates between rich and poor and to increase the quality of life and sense of wellbeing of the whole local community. Health inequities are differences in health status or in the distribution of health resources between different population groups, arising from the social conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. Health inequities are unfair and could be reduced by the right mix of government policies. Every day 21 000 children die before their fifth birthday. They die of pneumonia, malaria, diarrhoea and other diseases.
d) Study participants The study participants were selected using consecutive sampling technique, thus: • Maternal care nurses (i.e. nurses working in the maternity ward, ante natal clinic and post-natal clinic) • Health facility administrators/in-charges in the respective health facilities • Deputy County Nursing Officer 3.4 Data Collection Procedures and Methods The study combined both quantitative and qualitative methods from primary and secondary sources. The cross-sectional data collection took place from 8th June to 26th June 2015. The exposures that were investigated were location of health facility, incentives, job satisfaction and retention factors. The expected outcomes include turnover rate and effects of internal turnover on quality of healthcare
DDT breakdown products were found in 99% of people tested by CDC. Health impacts, such as in girls who were exposed to DDT before puberty are five times more likely to develop breast cancer in middle age according to the President’s Cancer Panel. DDT can also cause pregnant women who are exposed to DDT to likely give birth prematurely or low birth rate babies. Conclusion: DDT is highly effective at killing mosquitoes that carry malaria but the damage that it does is far too great causing the environment to suffer and people’s health and animals health to be affected greatly over time. I don’t believe that DDT is healthy nor should it ever be legal in the United
Studies in western population give an estimate of prevalence that is comparable to the Indian study. The Whickham survey, conducted in the Northern England, reported a mean incidence of 4•1/1000 per year for hypothyroidism in women. Several authors mention that the wide range in prevalence studies is due to inherent differences in age, gender, body-mass index (BMI), race, dietary iodine intake, and the cut-off serum TSH concentrations that are routinely used to define the condition. For example, most epidemiological surveys concur that the prevalence of mild thyroid dysfunction in the older people was clearly in excess of the prevalence in younger population (Cooper D et al.
To first answer your question about integrated health care systems in the U.S.; the answer is yes, there are some integrated health care systems available with all three delivery methods under one administration. An article titled “100 Integrated Health Systems to Know” listed out 100 of the most successfully integrated systems (Rodak, 2013). Kaiser Permanente is one such system. Considered the world’s largest not-for-profit integrated delivery system; Kaiser was founded in 1945, and currently serves 10.2 million people. It is based in Oakland, California but provide both insurance and health care services to patients across 8 states and the District of Columbia (Overland, 2013).
High Point Regional Hospital Mary Carnahan HA 301 Legal Aspects Legislation in Health Care March 10, 2016 Introduction In this paper I’m going to go on the internet to do a research on a large organization in my area, I’ve chosen High Point Regional Hospital. In my brief research on High Point Regional Hospital I’m going to see if they address each of the seven essential compliance program elements, which are; compliance standards, high-level responsibility, education, communication, monitoring and auditing, enforcement and discipline, and response and prevention. I’m going to see if there are any missing elements or elements that should be improved by High Point Regional Hospital. What changes should be implemented to fix these missing elements? How might the absence of inadequacy of these
The CDC report from 2003-2005 indicated a total of 64,382 cases of Lyme disease from 46 states, with 93% of cases reported in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin. The median age of patients in reported cases was 41 years, with ages ranging from 0 to 90 years. Men and women were equally represented in reported cases. The CDC identified participation in outdoor activities as a risk factor for infection, and provides educational materials for members of the public to download that provides procedures to reduce the risk of
