Medications are normally used to treat people that are ill, but a St. Louis mother had a much more devious reason to use it.
It frustrates me what Dr. Anna Pou had to go through with the lawsuits of the Memorial Medical Center incident. As Healthcare professionals, being sued for making the rightful decision for the patient and the hospital is unjust. Healthcare professionals like Dr. Pou, have taken the Hippocratic oath, and one of the promises made within that oath is “first, do no harm”. Hospital’s should not be so quick to make such an important decision of pressing charges to their faculty; more trust should be placed in them. In addition, she made it clear her intentions were just to ‘‘help’’ patients ‘‘through their pain,’’ on national television. While her actions might not be seen as the best decision, she made one and did her best to make the rightful one under such poor circumstances that were out of her control.

On January 27, 2004, Martha Stewart stood on trial facing charges of conspiracy, obstruction, securities fraud, and lying to investigators in connection with the sale of her stock in ImClone, a biopharmaceutical company (Gibson, Warin, & Gassaway, 2008). Just three years earlier, Stewart sold her stocks that she had within the company. After two days, the organization 's stock dropped 16 percent when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it had rejected the company’s new project of a drug, Erbitux, which was meant to be for cancer treatment (Leite, 2012). Stewart had controlled 4,000 shares of ImClone and by selling (or getting rid of, depending on who you ask) her shares, just before the FDA 's declaration, she kept away from
Jenny Stracner an employee of the Laguna Beach Police Department was told by several people that there several vehicles were seen in front of Greenwoods resident and the vehicles were only there for a couple of minutes. Stracner investigated these claims by staking out the residence and witnessing the vehicles at the residence for herself. After staking out the residence, she asked the garbage man to isolate garbage picked up and Greenwoods residence and hand them over to her.

As you know I have been trying to meet with you to discuss your case with you since January of this year. Specifically, you had appointments scheduled for January 20, 2017, January 24, 2017, February 9, 2017, February 24, 2017 and, March 21, 2017. You failed to keep any of these appointments. The reason I wanted to meet with you was to explain why I was not interested in pursuing this case. I wanted to give you the respect of a face to face explanation of the issues I found in your medical records, which I believe will make it impossible to recover substantial compensation in this matter.

Mary Maloney is not guilty for the murder of Patrick Maloney. At around the time of Patrick’s murder, Mary was out at the store. Sam the worker at the grocery store stated that Mary was “Very cheerful, wanted to give Patrick a good supper, and it was impossible that she” could have been the one to murder Patrick. If Mary was getting food for the supper at the time of the murder, how could she have possibly been the one to have killed him. Mary was happy and cheerful, no one would be acting like that if they had just lost their spouse. When Mary was on the phone with the police, telling them that Patrick was dead, Mary was crying and in shock. When Mary got back from the grocery store, she saw that Patrick was lying on the ground. She called
The case was based on Donna Yeager as the plaintiff on attorneys who released medical information in the course of a child custody hearing when Yeager asserts a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The plaintiff claimed of wrongful death, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, invasion of privacy and HIPAA violations as stated on FindLaw. However, the defendants contested that KRS 446.070 does not give Yeager a right of action where a Federal statute preempts state statutes and does not expressly provide such a right (FindLaw, n.d.). The foundation of the lawsuit was rooted on a case to govern the custody of a minor child, the mother,

There are many types of depression disorders and pain disorders. The two I will be talking about are Somatic Symptom Disorder and Major Depression Disorder. The difference between the two is where Somatic a person complains about pain that no one can find and the other one is depression. In the article that I read about Michelle Adams, 51-year-old former hairdresser. She had gone to a psychiatric clinic. She seemed like a lady that was very unhappy and had a different way of seeing things in life. She had been suffering from unbearable back pain for the last 13 months. This happened after her fall when she had fallen and fractured her pelvis, coccyx, right elbow and three ribs. She had daily narcotic medication that only moderately helped her. She said that the doctors said that she could go back to work but she said that the doctors did not see what she was going through and that they though she
