After death, only the family is allowed to touch or wash the body. Then the body will be sent to Mecca. In Health Care, you are expected to be aware of the different culture religions.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is considered a global leader with a high standard Code of Conduct. They apply the code daily to every decision that must be made. The code applies to all employees, contract staff, vendors, trainees, students, volunteers, and board members. St. Jude’s mission is to advance cures for diseases through research and treatment. Race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay would never affect the hospital’s decision to treat a child.
Health care workers are called upon to improve and maintain the health of our patients. A society where the civil rights of patients are dependent on the religious beliefs of others is not one I would want to live in. Basic rights and equality should never yield to discrimination, especially when people’s lives depend on the services of health care professionals. Even though the refusal to treat patients is legally protected by the RFRA, we should try to minimize discrimination, prevent our self-interests from providing exceptional care, and if not possible then there should be alternative ways to offer our patients the services they need. In the end, when we chose to pursue a profession in health care, we chose to benefit all of
She needed an immediate surgery and her physician recommended blood transfusion while surgery. Mattie brown wanted to live but denied the transfusion, due to her religions believe, which proscribed blood from others.

Bloodletting, which is the withdrawal of blood from a patient to cure or prevent illness and disease, dates all the way back to circa 2500 BCE. It was used for centuries but not until the late 1800s was it questioned for its beneficiality, and it was still used in some forms during the 1900s. This practice first originated in ancient Egypt. Then it spread to Greece, Rome, India, and the Arab areas.
I will gain patient trust and respect by verbalizing and reaffirming at least one positive aspect of each patient I encounter, whether it be a positive health behavior, a decision to seek health care, or a commitment to healthier lifestyle choices. To understand cultural values and practices and individual expectations and goals, I will elicit patient preferences by using open-ended questions and clarifying them using reflective listening techniques such as “restating, rephrasing, reframing, and reflecting thoughts, feelings, and emotional undertones.” 4 I also maintain a keen self-awareness of my own biblical beliefs and values as a Christian. To ensure that my own biases do not interfere with my provider-patient relationships, I will verbally remind patients that my role as a clinician is to simply present medical facts and clinical options, while supporting their healthcare decisions. When necessary, I will debrief on interactions with my colleagues so that I can determine when it is appropriate to involve another clinician.
While almost all religions agree that organ donations are acceptable and individual members can make their own decisions, there are some restrictions. Jehovah 's Witnesses allow only for organs that have been completely drained of blood due to the belief that transfusions are disallowed in the Bible. The Muslim religion absolutely demands that there be prior written consents before an organ transplant takes place. Orthodox Judaism claims it is necessary and proper if a life can be saved to perform an organ transplant as long as the donor is proclaimed dead as defined by Jewish law. The Shinto religion and the customs of the Gypsies are two notable groups that disallow
During the war, wounded soldiers and victims who lost blood died due to lack of blood or sustainable donors who would donate blood. At this time there were no means of storing blood and transfusion was done directly from donor to recipient. For this reason, researchers from New York started to study on how they would store and preserve fresh blood. As a result, they realized that salt solution would preserve fresh blood while sodium citrate would prevent blood clotting. In the application of this methodology, the medics started storing blood but with great difficulty because the blood would only be fresh for less than 28 days.
When we think of ‘donating’ we usually associate the word with money and we sometimes make excuses on why we can’t donate. But, we need to realize that there are so many things, some even more valuable than money that we can donate like, our time, items we no longer need, and our blood. I believe that donating blood can have a huge impact on someone’s life and it is something we should all consider doing. Receiving blood can be even more valuable than money for some people. Before donating we just need to consider the place we are donating to.
Magdalena Kusserow grew up as a Jehovah 's witness. A Jehovah’s witness is someone who is a member of the christian movement who refuses, military service, blood transfusion on religious grounds, and traditional christian doctrines.
