After a call with his lawyer, Isaac then gave the agents a urine test, unfortunately the urine tested positive for heroin. Isaac was then arrested until he had basically confessed to swallowing the pellets of heroin. After another call to Isaacs’s lawyer, he started to pass the pellets. Not one of the officers that where there knew of a written policy stating that for him to be able to pass the pellets they would need a medical professional in case he had gotten hurt. Instead, the agents followed a policy where a traveler that is detained that is not taken to a medical facility unless he states that he wants to or he looks like he is not feeling well or not looking well.
The case Furman v Georgia made it all the to the supreme court because it would affect the way the whole country delivered punishment. Although it surprised many people that it made it that far because most people were for capital punishment. Michael Meltsner said,”Georgia was a shock. Before LDF's anti-capital punishment campaign, there had been no successful court challenge of the death penalty — even when it had been handed down in a blatantly racist or totally arbitrary manner” (www.michealmeltsner.com/interview.html).

The name of this case was Ashcroft v. Oregon, which eventually was renamed Gonzales v. Oregon after Ashcroft retired from the Department of Justice (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.). The case, that took place from 2001-2004, was based on the argument made by Attorney General John Ashcroft. His argument was that physician-assisted suicide violated the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.). Ashcroft threatened to delicense doctors their right to practice if they took part of physician-assisted suicide. The Supreme Court ruled that Ashcroft had overstepped his authority, in trying to revoke the medical license of doctors and that the Controlled Substance Act’s main purpose is to prohibit illegal drug dealing by doctors, and not to control their practices (Gonzales v. Oregon, n.d.).

It It f It frustrates me what Dr. Anna Pou had to go through with the lawsuits of the Memorial Medical Center incident. As Healthcare professionals, being sued for making the rightful decision for the patient and the hospital is unjust. Healthcare professionals like Dr. Pou, have taken the Hippocratic oath, and one of the promises made within that oath is “first, do no harm”. Hospital’s should not be so quick to make such an important decision of pressing charges to their faculty; more trust should be placed in them. In addition, she made it clear her intentions were just to ‘‘help’’ patients ‘‘through their pain,’’ on national television.

Medication use is potentially dangerous. Polypharmacy is increasing, and makes it harder to keep track of side effects and interactions and of potentially inappropriate drug combinations. “The risk of serious consequences, hospitalization, and death due to medication errors increases with patients’ age and number of medications (Scand J Prim Health Care, 2012)”. For example, the GP is supposed to monitor the patient's regular medication, but does not always do so. Lack of monitoring and keeping track of patients’ medication use is a main cause when a patient is given inappropriate drugs.
