There are various methods to adjust health care services into becoming more approachable for low literacy patients. We shall let our society be aware of the problem and accommodate to the needs of low literacy people in our health care facilities.

This essay discusses the Terri Schiavo 's case during the time period between 1990 and 2005.After Ms. Schiavo suffers cardiac arrest, lack of oxygen leads her brain to damage. As a result of this damage, she had to be given a PEG tube to continue her life in the vegetative state. Her husband is appointed as guardian by the court, and Terri 's family do not reject that. Michael Schiavo-her husband- receives about $300,000 and about $750,000 for Ms. Schiavo’s medical care.After three years, he demands the PEG to be removed.However, Terri’s parents don’t want their daughter to be left for dead, hence the court trials, that lasted until 1985-Terri’s death, start. I think Ms. Schiavo’s PEG tube should have been removed earlier.
