She has desires to order men in the ward, and she wants complete power, so she control her patients and the staff to do fulfill her desires. However the arrival of a new patient, McMurphy’s makes other patients to rebel against authority that Ratched uses to control them. Through out the book Nurse Ratched actions shows how an authority figures like her can often abuse their power by enforcing rules on “less” inferior individuals which leads to problems. Nurse Ratched is known as the authority figure in the hospital. The patients see no choice but to follow her rules that she had laid down for them.
Nurse Ratched is shown as a character of strength by the way the writer has created her character. Nurse Ratched is also seen as a strong figure by the way the other characters talk about her, for example when Chief says “To beat her you don 't have to whip her two out of three or three out of five, but every time you meet. As soon as you let down your guard, as soon as you lose once, she 's won for good.” The writer has used this line to show us how both Chief and the other patient give her the strong and authoritative
Power is a huge aspect of how people see an individual and how they are treated in Salem, Massachusetts, which is the setting of The Crucible. Factors such as gender, religion, and how much land one own’s are truly what separate the powerful from the powerless in this Puritan society. However, a surprising person in Betty Parris is able to maintain great power from simply lying “asleep.” Although she must defy the odds of power through gender and age, Betty Parris establishes herself as the most powerful person in Salem through her ability to influence the actions of people around her and cause the town to enter a state of hysteria. By pretending to be asleep, Betty is able to influence the actions of others by playing with there emotions and making them fear for what could potentially happen. Abigail is one of the only people who knows that this whole situation with Betty is simply an act.
Chief Bromden believes that McMurphy is " a giant who [came] from the sky to save us fromt he combime." Nurse Ratched is the woman in control at the mental institute who is oppressive and dehumanizing. She has absolute control over everyone. In a way, Ratched knows the patients better than they know themselves and she uses that to her
She is adorned as a courteous and gracious lady from whom she has learnt all manners. “From her penny of beauty Posing lofty, …. She praises all who kneel and whispers softly, … a solitary figure Hold her eyes”. Maya Angelou humbly accepts the fact that she does not look fair and good-looking but her resisting power is astounding. Being born as a black lady she is upset at times but, it lives for a short while.
In all my conversations, we had a consensus that Nurse Ratched was essentially a metaphor for society at large in trying to control people. Thus, I held in high regards the piece of evidence when there are people, thanks to McMurphy, “drunk and running” and “carrying on with women” to the point, and Chief comes to believe that “maybe the Combine wasn’t all-powerful.” (305) In causing an actual change to the mindset of patients like Chief, McMurphy had truly mentally liberated the patients from the control of not Nurse Ratched but that of the entire Combine. Nevertheless, in my second conversation, my partner pointed out that this very same event had left to the physical
Her self-assurance comes from a keen critical mind and is expressed through her quick-witted dialogue. Elizabeth 's sparkling and teasing wit brings on Lady Catherine 's disapproval and Darcy 's admiration. She is always interesting to listen to and always ready to laugh at foolishness, stating, "I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can." Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good.
Professionalism in the Workplace As a nurse, a person is placed at the forefront of the healthcare system. A nurse is often times is the first person a patient interacts with on the healthcare team. That impression is one that can make or break an experience and as a nurse it is your privilege to represent an organization in a professional wholesomeness. There are endless instances where professionalism is the standard that nurses are held to and tasked to maintain (Mackey, 52). Gum can be a great deterrent not only to patients but also to other nurse peers in the workplace.
When I interviewed Larnette Gonzales a Front Desk Coordinator at an emergency addiction center I was a bit eager to hear her concerns and opinions about working in a high paced medical environment. I learned that being a front desk coordinator is not a stress free career in an addiction healthcare setting, because you are dealing with many people with all sorts of mental and medical problems. I would have to say that Larnette has a lot of patience when it comes to the barriers she stated when the patient is being checked in with a family member or is still at the denial stage of their addiction. I did learn that in order for a hospital, clinic, or any health care environment the team leader of a Physician has to set the example for the rest of the staff to follow. For example, Larnette stated that they have weekly meeting and they are able to state their concerns without any harsh criticisms and the Physician tries to set up weekly lucheons, so that they can have a good work place and personal relationship with one another and come together as a family.
