To extend this, there were even fewer hospitals for the poor in which case Henrietta was. John Hopkins hospital was the only one in the area that treated black patients and had a free ward. Skloot (2011) wrote “David drove Henrietta
Throughout this short story, Emily showcases several attributes of mental illness which is compounded from it already running in her family, to events in her life that may seem disturbing. Faulkner paints an eerie image of Emily and her surroundings which helps the reader to understand the state of her mental stability. By being withdrawn from society and being seen as an outsider, it seemed she was trapped in a world that did not understand her which made her seem full of delusions. Even though Emily seemed like she needed professional help she never received any psychiatric treatment. Although the community Emily lived in never thought she was crazy, they did think she was a bit off and this can be seen through their interactions with her.
It is unrealistic because not all people can afford health care, for example the Lacks family because “Henrietta’s family can’t even go see a doctor because they can’t afford it” (Skloot, 2010, p. 180). The quality of health care all depends on what kind of insurance people have and if they have the money to afford it. Also, there are still limitations to treat or cure certain diseases that people have, such as HIV, diabetes, and more, so quality health for all is impossible today. However, many scientists and researchers are working on it to cure those diseases and medical progress has come far compared to the
Education is a vital aspect in social development and he Somoza family regime failed to provide adequate education for the people of Nicaragua therefore proving that the regime was not beneficial to the social development of Nicaragua. A social welfare system that catered for all workers healthcare needs was put in by the Somoza family in 1956, but because hospitals, clinics and most of the healthcare facilities where in the cities and the majority of the population lived in rural areas, health care was not accessible and there therefore many people suffered and died. The Somoza family neglected basic human needs and therefore the society of Nicaragua could not develop, the Nicaragua family dictatorship inhibited the social development of the people. The
In the late 1800’s people with mental illness weren 't accomdated like people are today. Often people with illnesses, such as bipolar disorder, we 're teased and forced to lock themselves in a room away from civilization. No one truly cared for those with mental illness or tried to find out ways to accomdate them in school or regular life. Even when mental hospitals became more helpful those suffering from different illnesses would rather stay at home in fear than to seek professional help because of the risk of getting teased or called pathetic. The mentally ill patients were made prisoners, sent to alms houses or forced to remain at home because the first colonist believed they were “sick in the head” due to practicing
There was no adequate preparation by the government and the residents to deal with the disaster. There was a wide system catastrophe at the emergency service department, which involved an inadequate amount of paramedics and ambulances to attend to emergency calls within a reasonable time. The local hospital doesn’t have enough resources; some were on bypass mode, which prevented them from accepting very sick
These short lifespans were due to the limited medical knowledge. In a time when antiseptics and antibiotics weren 't known, doctors used somewhat primitive forms of medication. One thing that really tested the medical knowledge was the bubonic plague. The plague affected the children during their younger years, many births didn’t have success due to lack of hygiene. People were extremely
Due to these sorts of racial discriminations in the medical and scientific setting, minorities have a higher death rate than the majorities in the United States. It is because of the mistrust of healthcare providers, and the lack of health insurance. Although Henrietta Lacks helped cure different diseases and viruses, without informed consent, her family was suffering. Just like the victims of the Tuskegee study, Henrietta was also a poor patient.
Justice:: In this experiment participant was not getting any justice because during this study there treatment was available then also subject was not getting any treatment of Syphilis and at the end most of the subjects was die and they won’t get any justice. By concluding the Tuskegee study did not respect ethical principles, no diversity, no informed consent, no confidentiality and the researchers coerced the subjects into the study and did not let them have a proper medication to treat the syphilis. Based on my personal thoughts go out to the families that lost their loved ones back then due to the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. I personally think that this study should have never been conducted.
