For the Hmong, it is seen as deep sadness and can be healed with communal rituals and traditions, whereas in Western societies, it can involve doctors and therapy. It concerns the biomedical model because medication can be used to aid individuals in recovering from this illness, and it negatively affects one’s body as well. It is seen as a mental illness in many different places around the world, yet the Hmong never referred to it as such, and preferred to think of it without stigma instead, though they lived within Western culture. Nevertheless, the culture shock they experienced changed a lot for them, such as having their children veer off from the lives their parents had previously led before them. Becoming literate was another aspect of American life that they had to face, and they dealt with the challenge to the best of their ability.
From personal experience, using a translator phone with the translator not in the same room to communicate with patients and their families, it is difficult and involves repeating yourself and causes frustration throughout visit for the patient as they want help, justly, but it is a longer process. Therefore, I think a second language is vital as time goes on for the future of healthcare providers to become culturally
The standard of medical care in the United States has been compromised, since physicians ' beliefs interfere with treatment that is in the best interest of the patient. The fourth case is the most difficult and controversial for the Ethics Committee to make a decision regarding a full-term baby with severe Spina bifida. In this case, the parents may have been given too much information, and a choice too early as to the ultimate fate of their child. Spina bifida, being a non-terminal disability, would impair the child’s quality of living to a high degree due to the severity. The question for this family is: Would their son, Landon Sparks, have a life worth
Each stated that at the hospital with the births of previous children, they had lost control. Whether in the form of being forced to have procedures or feeling manipulated to do what made them uncomfortable. In a setting of child birth the mother wanted to feel autonomous. They wanted to feel competent in the knowledge of their own
What will the doctors tell the family members of the patient? Something like, “We didn’t try to save his or her life because a machine said he or she wouldn’t make it”? That would be absolutely unheard of and completely unethical and many hospitals would have an insane amount of issues from the family members of those patients. Some may say that it allows a more effective use of limited medical resources, due to the fact that the patient would have to go under expensive procedures even though they most likely will not live. Although, every patient should be treated equally no matter their condition because one may never know that they may actually save a life against all odds, it has happened before.
exercise programs, nutrition plans) on their own. Patients are indeed often dismissed in a highly motivated state from inpatient rehabilitation but their compliance decreases quickly. Reasons for this include the changes back to the home environment and the lack of feedback. As the patient is not under permanent supervision of medical experts,
In many areas the APNs can not work individually and they supervised by anesthetist. Autonomy is the freedom to make discretionary and binding decisions consistent with one’s scope of practice (Lewis,2006). Other challenge an APN is gaining trust and building rapport in health care team. Multi cultural language and culture difference affect to the effective communication with patients and their families.

If I had to pick one hard time in my life I 'd say it would be when my grandpa Marvin was in the hospital. He 's the kind of man that likes to do stuff himself rather then have people do it for him. So the hospital life was not for him, especially when you can 't do anything and the nurses have to help with everything. It all started when Grandpa had fallen down and injured his leg. He had trouble walking and his leg just never quite worked the same.
I believe very strongly in acting in a trustworthy manner at all times. I think that to not have integrity is very detrimental not just from a social work standpoint but to any aspect of someone 's life. However when it comes to social work it is essential. We are working with clients to change their lives and if they can’t trust us they will not get what they need out of the services and there is a high chance that they will discontinue services. I also believe that integrity does not just relate to our own personal integrity but the integrity of the agency.
In long-term relationships, it is hard for a couple to separate, even when the male in the relationship is being abusive towards his partner being the female because the female is simply scared of the consequences, also, in the journal ‘Female domestic violence victims ' experiences of hospital care’ it states that “Several women chose not to disclose the domestic violence because their partner was present whilst being questioned by the health care professional” Gasser, H.

P295., In my opinion, I don’t think any partner should be in the same room as the abused individual because there could be a lot of missing information if the suspect is present during the questioning about the assault. While the victim being, the female is being questioned about the assault she could possibly be scared mentally while the health care professional is asking her questions because the person who abused her is watching her at the same time, I believe that when the abused individual is in the room as the health care professional and the abuser is not, the victim of the domestic violence can tell the truth about what really happened and justice could be served, there were a lot of cases where the spouse simply didn’t say anything because they were scared of the consequences because for one if the abuser finds out most likely they will abuse the victim even
