Medications are normally used to treat people that are ill, but a St. Louis mother had a much more devious reason to use it.
Cindy Anthony contacted 911 and mentioned that she hasn't seen her two year old granddaughter for almost a month. She made that call on July 15, 2008 and also stated that she would like Casey Anthony charged with taking a vehicle and cash. Casey really found pleasure in lying to the cops and did not show any feelings about her daughter Caylee missing. The Florida grand jury accused Casey of false information to police four times, aggravated child neglect, homicide of a child, and first degree murder. These charges were on October 14, 2008. Just a few months later on December 11, 2008 Caylee's remains were found in an area of thicket not far from the Anthony home. Casey Anthony was going to be facing the death penalty for the murder of her daughter, Caylee on April 14, 2009. Since there was a lot of attention with this case the jury was picked from a neighboring county by the name of Pinellas, but the trial took place in Orange County where the offense happened. During the trial the jury was confined until the case was completed (Hails, 2013).
If ever there was a botched case it was this one with inconsistencies on the part of the State being overwhelming. I watched this trial intently and read everything available. The verdict in this case generated an epidemic of outrage throughout the world. I agree with the not-guilty verdict on the murder one and two charges; however, the evidence is not as incontrovertible as some have suggested. I also agree that there was some mischaracterization around the 31 days; yet, to trivialize this behavior as simply immature is inaccurate.
Recognizing, acknowledging, and understanding medication safety is important when administering medications. Understanding which medications are high-risk ones, being familiar with the medications being given, remembering the five most important rights when administering medications, communicating clearly, developing checking habits, and reporting the medication errors will lead to safe outcomes for the residents. However, errors do occur from a lack of experience, rushing, distractions, fatigue, doing too many things at once, not double checking, poor communication, and lack of team work. It is not only the staff that commit errors, but also the work environment that contributes to the medication error. Two examples are poor reporting systems

Political Actors are not just any elected officials, but they can be any organization, group, or person that has an influence on any political issue. In the Texas affirmative action case, many political actors are involved. Edward Blum runs a group who is working on ending affirmative action. He was along side Abigail Fisher helping her though this case. Another political actor was Justice Clarence Thomas. He wrote his own opinion arguing that considering race in college admissions is prohibited by the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under law. Thomas even said that slaveholders once argued that slavery helped to civilize blacks, and that segregationist argued that separating students by
The article explores the witness Adam Casey’s experience when a fellow student, Mary Hare, was being assaulted in her dorm. During a chief examination, he stated his actions throughout the whole ordeal. Several panicked women rushed into the residence’s common building and reported the issue, Adam Casey, asked if they’d called 911 and the women responded that they had then he ran to where the assault was occurring. He tries to pry the assailant’s hands off the women’s neck but was unable. He put him in a chokehold and waited until others could arrive and assist them. During cross-examination, Casey said the assailant did not particularly smell of alcohol and he wasn’t resisting
The case assessment of Brianna Lopez begins with her birth on February 14, 2002 in a New Mexico hospital. After leaving the hospital, Brianna resided in Las Cruces, New Mexico with her unwed parents, Andrew “Andy” Walters, 21, and Stephanie Lopez, 19. There were also four other adults and one child, Andy and Stephanie’s 18 month old son, living in the home (State v. Walters, 2007). Among these adults was Brianna’s uncle, Steven Lopez. Shortly after her arrival home, Baby Brianna experienced extreme physical, verbal, and sexual abuse from her parents and uncle. She was slapped, kicked, punched, pinched, thrown, and raped. Consequently, this maltreatment resulted in “bleeding on her brain, broken ribs, broken arms, broken legs, and lacerations
Case Citation: Linda Williamson v. The City of Houston, 148 F. 3d 462 (5th Cir. 1998). Facts: Houston Police Officer Linda Williamson was working in the Organized Crime Squad and was sometimes assigned to partner with fellow Officer Doug McLeod. Williamson alleged that over an eighteen month period, McLeod harassed her every day creating a hostile work environment. More specifically, Williamson stated that McLeod conducted obvious and demeaning inspections of her appearance. He made comments to her on how her body looked in different clothes and remarked specifically on the appearance of her buttocks and the size of her breasts. Williamson related that McLeod became bolder and would wedge himself into a cubicle beside her where he could pull her hair, lean over her, breath heavily into her ear, bump, tap or slap her. McLeod allegedly whistled and
On July 15, 2008, Cindy Anthony announced that her two-year old granddaughter Caylee, had not been seen for nearly a month. Also, she wanted her daughter Casey Anthony taken into custody for robbing a car and money. Casey lied many times to investigators and displayed no emotion about her daughters disappearance. On October 14, 2008, Casey Anthony was arraigned by a Florida grand jury on first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. Later, human remains were identified as Caylee's on December 11, 2008, in the woods approximately a quarter of a mile from the Anthony residence. On April 14, 2009, the prosecutor disclosed intent to seek the death penalty. Due to the broad attention about the case, jurors were chosen from Pinellas County but the trial was in Orange County where the crime took place. They were isolated during the whole trial (Hails, 2013).
On November 16, 2009, Fayetteville, North Carolina Police found the body of a missing 5-year-old, Shaniya Davis, with the help of assisting volunteers. Shaniya Davis was reported missing by her mother, Antoinette Davis, on November 10, 2009.

McNeill was charged with first-degree kidnapping three days after the 5-year-old was reported missing. Antoinette Davis was charged with accusations that she prostituted her daughter.

An emergency call comes in at 9:45 am from Doug Greene. He discloses that his neighbor and recently ended love interest, Anna Garcia, a well developed thirty-eight-year-old hispanic has been skipping routinely morning walks and that the last time he saw her was at 6:30 am on August 13th. Since her dogs were unusually barking, it sparked concern in Greene. The call brought police to Garcia’s home who found her dead lying face down on her entry hallway at 9:56 am. It is 10:20 am on August 14th when police are securing the crime scene. At 11:00 am, the medical examiner was able to approximate Garcia’s time of death at 7:00 am through the Glaister equation after measuring her rectal temperature. Algor mortis varies with ambient temperatures, so
I think it’s wrong for the government to penalize physicians for not meeting compliance standards. However, It’s a great opportunity for the government to aim at small practices because this is where physicians are self-employed. These types of physicians have numerous clinic or health care facilities and are most likely to commit fraud. This seems kind of biased, but it’s true. According to, Ornstein, the most common sanctions are against physicians who have odd Medicare billing reputations (2014, title). In the text, the levels of violations are warnings, an informal disciplinary action, punitive action, and termination (Safian, 2009, pg. 218.). For a physician billing Medicare wrongfully the first time they could receive a warning. The second

Euthanasia, also known as assisted suicide, is the act of permitting the death of hopelessly sick or injured patients. This is never suggested by the caretaker rather than requested by the patient or their family. Few areas such as the Netherlands have already legalized this practice. This debate, as split as a fork in the road, is over whether or not this approach should be legalized worldwide on stances regarding religion, ethics, and self choice.
