According to government and private studies, about 22,000 of our fellow Americans die each year of treatable diseases because they lack insurance and can’t afford a doctor. (Reid 2) The wealthy people with money, the elderly, and the less fortunate are able to receive all of the benefits of having health care insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. Unfortunately, for the rest of the people who make too much or make too little, who may also one day come down with an illness, are basically left to die. It is as unfair
Therefore, the government will not negotiate any prices with businesses. This system is the primary cause of cost shifting, since the introduction of Medicaid and Medicare. The cost of healthcare increases every year, without government stimulus the revenue will keep declining. Since the introduction of the ACA coverage expansion, new questions were raising as to what would happened to the methods of reimbursements. Unfortunately, the ACA will be finance in part by reducing payments to hospitals and any other healthcare practitioners, according to Shi, L., & Singh, D. (2012).
Nursing is a career path that will always have a job opening available. I have learned throughout this semester that there are many different parts to nursing, and there is always room for improvement and growth in this field. I can perform research that will broaden my knowledge and my skills that I worked so hard to achieve. I love learning, and in nursing I will constantly be learning new things. The aspect of learning is never gone.
This was an experience that few teenagers are accustomed too. However, I found that I loved the job for a very simple reason, the connections I made with other people. I felt that I was performing God’s work and that this was a new chapter in God’s plan for me. The nurses that I worked under were fantastic role-models. They encouraged me to continue my education in healthcare.
Patients have suffered unnecessarily due to lack of health care, and “18,000 Americans die every year because they don't have health insurance” (PNHP). Health care is essential for Americans despite pre-existing conditions, and a free market insurance program would allow citizens to received the health care that is so desperately needed. A universal health care system is a matter of human rights and would solve America’s problem of one sixth of the population being
I am thankful for my experience as an STNA and Restorative Aide at Darby Glenn in addition to my time at UD. Each has inspired my love for nursing and has influenced me to set new personal and professional goals. I ask for your consideration for admission into your program, which will facilitate my goal of becoming an Adult Gerontology Primary Care or Family Nurse Practitioner. I look forward to not only embarking on this new journey but also joining my mother and brother as a Buckeye
Many of the world’s problem stem from a lack of clean and sustainable drinking water for all. Though it may seem like a small fraction of 65 million, over 840,000 die because of a lack of clean drinking water. Before trying to fix this pressing issue, we must first understand the problem, answer the question as to why it is a problem, and then create solutions that will actually work. “Around the world about 750 million people lack access to clean water, that is about 2 and a half times the United States
Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need. Below is the breakdown of how I have developed each semester in nursing school. FALL 2013 • Foundations of Nursing: NUR 2310 In this course, I learned the different nursing theories and how it has been
Recently, there has been an increased incidence of organ failure along with a staggering lack of organ donors. This dilemma has created a public health crisis. “As a result there has been a major increase in the number of patients on transplant waiting lists as well as in the number of patients dying while on the waiting list (Abouna).” This public health crisis has robbed hundreds of thousands of patients a better quality of life, as well as a substantial amount of money for medical care (Abouna). “90 percent of the patients on the transplant list are actually waiting for a kidney. Patients are dying every day because we don’t have enough organs to go around (Atala).” With the proper funding, thousands of people would have the possibility of a better quality of life.
Overall, it may be said that the cost of health insurance in America is increasing drastically every year. This is causing a strain on the jobs and duties of Health Care Administrators. But with the solution stated, the cost of health insurance can be decreased, and employers and employees alike will be happy with their medical treatment and the cost of their health insurance. The Hospital Health Insurance Policy is the only real solution to the increasing health insurance cost
It is March 29, 1765 and the stamp act was enacted about a week ago. The Crane family is very upset over this act enforced by the British Parliament because they do not have a lot of money and it will cause a hardship for them financially. This act made people pay taxes on any printed legal document. Bruce Crane, his wife, and his three children were very upset over this act. The sugar act, which was passed a little under a year ago, already made things very hard on the family and this would just make matters worse.
I aim to be a nurse for the lifelong learning experiences that will allow me to grow and develop each day. As an interdisciplinary profession, nursing employs numerous duties beyond medical care. Critical thinking and creativity are vital to give patients the best treatment possible, as well as empathy and kindheartedness to display care and to promote comfort for patients and their families. Employing these qualities
For the family members watching their love one go through the pain of a terminal illness it can be very horrific. Even though we may have lifesaving technology, the technology or medicine is not always affordable. With this knowledge a lot of terminally ill patients’ hospitable cost increase exponentially with every day. "The cost of maintenance of [a dying] ... It has been estimated that between two thousand and ten thousand dollars a month" (Dworkin 187).
Although, PPACA provides healthcare to everyone, in order to get money to insure all of these people, new taxes were created. The people who suffer the most are the ones that barley miss the Federal Poverty Level and can hardly afford the cost of living, much less having to pay for healthcare. With PPACA, the insurance companies must cover sick people and this causes everyone 's insurance cost to rise. Health insurance offered by businesses can be expensive, this means that lower wage workers might not be able to afford coverage and cannot get cost assistance. With this being said PPACA should be
Continuing with the status quo will only cause more expenditures to be added causing a fall in our economy and tax increases for Americans, overall (Cicconi & Strug, 2010). However, on that same note a single-payer system would not be the most preferred option due to the fact that Regional Health Authorities (RHA) and Family Practitioner Committees (FPC) can just play hot potato with patients’ bills. The RHA is responsible for divvying out the budget to hospitals that are located in their area and outside of their area is the FPC with is responsible for remunerating general practitioners, dentists, and pharmacists. Thus patients that don’t fit into the borders of these guidelines get shifted around from the GP to the hospital, to the community, and then back to the hospital again. The government would be able to shift costs with a single payer system onto social security in the case of elderly patients often times sending them to nursing homes.
