A nurse’s job is to make the patient feel comfortable and provide a friendly feel, which is difficult to do if hospitals and other medical facilities rely heavily on assisted suicide. According to the ANA, the procedure opposes “the ethical traditions of the profession”(Clair). The doctors are in a quite different situation. When you look in depth at the operation itself, many professionals imply that the doctor “are accessories of fact to homicide”(Clair). That means the doctor is assisting with the homicide because the patient’s death was only possible if the doctor contributed the needed drugs.
Anna Quindlen in the article, “The C Word in the Hallway” argues that mental illness don’t get enough awareness or help that it actually needs. Quindlen supports her argument by using similes, tone and bias’ to state that many teachers are not trained to recognize mental illness and so some just dismiss it and so that leaves “over two thirds of the mentally disturbed children without any help”. Insurance also does not aid in covering the costs because “health insurance plans do not provide coverage for necessary treatment”, or if they do then they think that they should “penalize those who need a psychiatrist instead of an oncologist”. The author's purpose in writing this was to inform people about the scary reality that many kids and teens face today and to argue that it is nothing to joke about and that it needs to be taken seriously. The author writes in a formal tone for parents, teens, and other adults to be aware of the seriousness of mental illness in teenagers.
This strategy would allow Alicia to fulfill her responsibility as a social worker in protecting the clients that she serves and possibly keep them away from danger. However, contacting law enforcement could create a negative effect on the entire LGBT community being that the state is conservative and already has opinions about this population. It would create more of a rift between RAY and WCF as well as cause the members of the group and those part of RAY to not have a place where they feel understood and accepted. Another disadvantage is that Alicia would be going against her supervisor's wishes which could negatively affect her pursuit of her
Mary’s family should not authorize a hip replacement in her case because it seems as though her quality of life is detreating and that would only make her health worse before it gets better. She would need someone on watch 24/7 to make sure she does not hurt herself. But, if her family is willing to take on the added stress and risk in her condition then it is up to them, to make the decision. Mary is in no shape to make logical decisions on her own and if the family has just given up than the choice is left up to the medical staff and judge. But, on the flip side the family should be obligated to come together to help their mother no matter how hard it is to side by and watch the process take place.
One of my personal biases is gathering information from patient’s caregivers and parent’s, as I feel that they limit the patient’s potential to do anything and assume they are more impaired than what they are. Therefore, this could hinder my interview by not trusting every answer from Susie’s mother, and not willing to ask every question I want to ask. Another bias I would have is seeing a patient in Susie’s condition I would automatically think that the patient is unable to communicate with me, and automatically direct my questions towards the caregiver, which could make the patient feel ignored and not a part of the physical therapy
But they should not have the freedom to choose to end their own lives with the help of a physician. Such laws devalue human life. Medical diagnoses are often inaccurate, leaving people who have been told they will soon die, to sometimes live for many months or even years longer. It can also be argued that seriously ill people often suffer from undiagnosed depression or other mental illnesses that can impair their ability to make an informed decision. As Christian myself, physician assisted suicide goes against principles of the bible.
An abortion should never be an option in any case because it’s considered as murder, it causes pain to the person and baby during and after the procedure, and there are other choices to choose from including adoption. Instead of having an abortion, women can choose a more beneficial option, such as giving the baby up for adoption. When women decide to get an abortion, they don’t think about adoption because of the long process, even though it can help other families who can’t have children. For example “It’s logical that anti-abortion organizations seeking to prevent abortions and promote traditional family structures would aggressively promote adoption, but this connection is often overlooked…”(Joyce). Many women that get pregnant with an unwanted child usually look into having an abortion first rather than going through the long process of pregnancy and giving the baby up for adoption.
Even one instance of abandonment can cause a nurse to find it difficult to have the trust of coworkers. They may also find it problematic trying to gain employment with any past of abandonment. From all this research I have learned additional actions that are forms of abandonment that I hadn’t thought of previously. I feel that I am better prepared to not commit any acts of abandonment now that I have gained new knowledge and understanding. As a nurse I do not want to ever place patients in danger, not only to avoid reprimand from the board of nursing, but also because each patient is some ones loved one and I feel all people no matter what their past is like deserves great nursing care in a nonjudgmental way.
Forcing a terminally ill person to live when they would rather die than suffer is much more immoral than euthanizing them. Right now, laws prohibit euthanasia in most states in the United States, so most people cannot be euthanized even if they want to be. However, this can be changed with enough people calling their state representatives and protesting the law. Terminally ill
(Brendtro, Doncaster, &Mitchell, 2011,p.4) The times have changed we see more therapist working with patients without the use of medications and focusing on the patients feeling and thoughts. I find that to be good because who wants to take bottles and bottles of medications that have side affects that affect other parts of the body or organs. It was been shown that when the patient talks to therapists the patients does better. When it comes to evaluating more research I believe this kind of therapy can help researchers find more evidence or research to show that we do need more therapy to help patients get better. When we find therapy in ourselves we are less stressed.
