Since a large part of their business is medical based, the government has a large amount of control over the company. For example, the government might make Walgreens charge for flu shots for some reason, which might drive people away and reduce the positive image of the company. Their third weakness is that they have high marginal pressure. This means
I am pro animal testing because animals repopulate In the wild and in captivity so,testing won't hurt. Animals are or needed for testing in order to keep humans out of harm's way. Using animals prevents people from dying and could save more depending on the medicine being tested. Animals must be used in cases when ethical considerations prevent the use of human subjects. When testing medicines for potential toxicity, the lives of human volunteers should not be put in
The problem of varicose veins are that it doesn’t look good on the aesthetic points of the person. Thus, there are much more patients who are women suffering varicose veins more than men so this will be a pretty big concern to them. However, there was a bigger problem to the ones with serious varicose veins that needs to have a surgery. The cost of the varicose vein’s surgery in america wasn’t a just a few 10 dollars. The range of the cost was about 600$ to 3000$ dollars.
The AWA requires research animals to be provided with adequate food and clean water, as well as, regular veterinary care. However, animal testing supporters fail to recognize that “the AWA does not cover rats, mice, fish, and birds, which comprise around 95% of the animals used in research” (“Should Animals Be Used for Scientific or Commercial Testing”). This means that the animals typically used in research aren’t protected under the AWA, even though it is commonly perceived that they
Understaffing in hospitals is a major problem that has been affecting healthcare workers and patients for many years. I have chosen to highlight understaffing as a patient safety issue because of the consequences that can arise from it. Shortages in staffing can result in an increase of infection rates (Stone et al., 2007) leading to complications and poorer patient outcomes (Needleman et al. 2002). This particular issue is of interest to me because I have experienced and witnessed it myself.
Far reached mental illnesses have had detrimental effects on teen health as Teens are often being prescribed medicine for things that don’t require medication, teens are receiving high dosages of these unnecessary medications, and society being “too soft” on adolescents thus leading to the newly found mental illnesses present in today’s society leading to the spiked suicide rates as a result. While some teens have justifiable mental illnesses that require medication to live a normal life, many individuals abuse this leverage resulting in a bigger problem that they began with. Teenage overmedication has become a growing problem in our day and age, and teens being prescribed unnecessary medicines heightens the problem. Incorrect prescription in teens is quite serious and could have a detrimental effect on the teen’s health. For example, an
Sometimes aggressive healthcare can lead a patient down a path where their health goes through an upward and downward spiral because of too much care they might be receiving. Patients who are treated with aggressive care are also most likely to develop a variety of side effects or complications from the care which can lead to more pain or they might experience medical errors that come from uncoordinated care such as doctors prescribing drugs that could duplicate or interfere with other drugs(consumer report,2008). This kind of care offers little to no benefit to the patients but just more suffering. An analysis of 28,000 patients younger than 65 with advanced tumors from 2007-2014 found that approximately three-fourths received aggressive care within their last 30 days of life and one-third of patients of all the tumor types investigated died in the hospital, according to findings of the American Society of Clinical Oncology(ASCO,2016).This study just shows that it is not guaranteed that aggressive care will significantly extend a patients life expectancy but it will certainly make the process of dying more painful for the patients involved. Too much care at the end of life provided to these patients caused these patients cancers to deteriorate and
Interviewer: Yes. Interviewee: I think that the environment can be difficult because the patients are so sick, so things like ancillary staff to help. Like, we place a line to do CRRT, but the x-ray tech is busy and we need to verify the placement before we can start them. We send a lot of labs for CRRT and that can affect your workload and it can be difficult if we are waiting on labs to make these pretty important changes in their care. That type of thing can be a challenge environmentally.
Many people are forced to not buy the drugs they need to survive, which can result in deaths. Even some people that can afford their medicine have a very hard time finding a way to pay for their prescription. The government needs to change it, whether it be importing drugs from Canada, or enforcing price controls. The prices are far too high, and that is why millions of Americans do not take their medicine. Millions of people not taking their prescription is way too many, in fact one person not taking their medicine is too many.
There are many benefits to having Universal Healthcare, for instance, the stress of how you are going to afford a pregnancy, illness, disease, anything that may come about medical wise is not something to stress over with Universal Healthcare because tax dollars that all citizens pay for help aid in the cost. It is cheaper to afford things that may be unaffordable and stressful in America. Treatments can be more advanced in America, so you will sometimes see different countries come to America to get treatment, but most medicine is also more affordable because it does not have many different insurance companies and such that decide on the price. In other countries, the citizens are happier with healthcare reform, this is from a number
