I worked day shift and came into report that fateful day to hear about a dying patient I was assigned. Apparently, she was brought to the hospital from a nursing home because of uncontrolled pain. The doctor who admitted her was notorious for berating a nurse at a moment’s notice and was the head physician at the hospital and ruled the roost (so to speak) and was impossible to please – reportedly. The off-going nurse was giving me report, and it went something like this: “She is in there crying and squirming in pain.
I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
In addition to the aftermath of the surgery, I had a tube running into my stomach draining fluids, and a tube inserted in where they removed my appendix. Every day they would bring me my 3 meals throughout the day, but I couldn’t bring myself to eat for several days. Along with not being able to eat, I was required to not drink any type of fluids for my stay there, resulting in just getting my mouth swabbed daily to prevent dehydration. Next, they started taking blood every morning and getting me up for physical therapy to get my body used to walking again. It felt as if I was paralyzed.
The perils of psychiatric medicine greatly affected Esther’s life. In chapter 10, when Teresa, their family doctor, refused to prescribe stronger sleeping pills for Esther anymore, because Esther was unable to sleep and read anymore. She (Teresa) referred Esther to a psychiatrist, Doctor Gordon. In Chapter 11, Esther later on realized that she was not sleeping for seven nights.
I do believe nurses should be taking care of their patients with compassion (Peate 1). I am sure that when their family members get sick they want the best care they could get so why not treat your patients like they are part of your family. There are many nurses out there that I’ve seen from my experience not even liking to teach student nurses when they go to their clinical. If they are not happy with what they do they should not be there making sick patients feel worse than they already
Women have the moral right to choose what to do with their body. A woman should not be forced into motherhood because of an unwanted pregnancy. Denying a woman the right to choose to have an abortion will condemn her to be financially liable and take care of an unwanted child for 18 years. Many people who take the pro-life stance fail to acknowdledge the hardships and difficulties of motherhood. They argue that “babies should be saved” yet how they plan to save children from a rough and tumoltous life when 73% of women who have abortions do it because they are unable to afford and provide for a child and 48% would be single mothers; all factors that affect children’s development and progress in life (“U.S. Abortion Statistics” 3).
In Amy Bloom’s “Silver Water”, She demonstrates the idea that people with mental illness are treated and looked at different by most normal people; Once Rose was diagnosed with her mental illness her family acted different to her as she sent to many doctors who wouldn 't help her with this illness. In the beginning of the “Silver Water” the family learn that Rose has a mental illness and her parents have to make a decision to do with her. Her father who is a psychiatrist didn 't want to sent her away because he thought that there was nothing wrong with her but her mother see that there is something wrong with Rose. Rose’s parents get in the huge argument about what is happening to Rose but her father is in full denial “”She is going off” “What is that your professional Opinion?...
Although she was never pregnant and had never gone through an abortion, she had given advice to people in favor of supporting abortion and also did an abortion surgery on a patient before. This led her to a cycle of bad Karma; her life was ruined. All the money she had was spent on healing her sickness, serious cases of headaches, backaches, and stomachaches, but she never knew what the cause of these weird symptoms were. She later finds out that the reason for her pain comes from her bad deeds, so she consulted the monk to have her problems solved. After the process, she recovered from the pain, when all the monk did was just giving Metta Pavana (love and kindness) to the spirits the nurse had harmed and convinced them to forgive her for her sins.
She was suspicious, my grandma, of why I wasn’t crying, why I wasn’t hysterical. For the first ten minutes of our conversation, she had probably allowed herself to believe that my calm was the result of my being in a foreign hospital, on assignment, surrounded, perhaps, by colleagues. She would have challenged me a lot sooner if she had known that I was hiding in the border-stop bathroom so that Zóra wouldn’t overhear. Advertisement Continue reading the main story

This is for documentation as to reason why my daughter Cadence Lookabill has had so many unexcused absenses. Cadence has struggled with chronic allergies for years and with those allergies she has a lot of mucus which causes vomiting and diarrhea. I have taken her to the doctor for these issues and they just send her home saying there is nothing they can do, so I didn’t take her on those days. If she had strep throat or any other illness I did. Cadence was given notes for the dates in question, she did not get the notes to the appropriate person and after she failed to give them those notes she threw them away.

When she had an serious injury in the hospital, and she totally forgot about all the things before the accident, all the things he knew was her parent told her, she was curious about what they said, she wanted to find out by herself. She didn’t just lie on the bed and do nothing, she was trying to regain her memory. Even though she didn’t know it is good or bad, she tried many methods to find out what actually happened in the accident. Another main character in the story is Libby’s mother, the thing I don’t like about her is she didn’t tell the truth to her daughter, and lied to her. Libby’s mother lied to Libby that Libby hit someone who has been seriously injured, and Libby’s mother knew that that person is Libby’s friend Kasey.
