This case was just tragic. At first I was a little intimidated because the patient’s blood pressure was so unstable so my nurse and I spent all most the entire day administering meds to stabilize her so I didn’t really do that

This book is mainly about the loss and betrayal of innocence. There is many signs to gather that Holden suffers from PTSD. One of my biggest believes of Holden’s PTSD comes from the the death of his younger brother, Allie. I do believe there is more reasons behind why he is suffering from PTSD, but I believe this was the spark to the flame, this is where it originated from.
Another major factor of Thao's medication error was fatigue. That had been picking up extra shifts, including the one in which she worked on the fourth of July. Her lack of proper rest and not giving her mind time to receive those eight hours caused the confusion between the two IV containing the two kinds of medication. Despite the fact that Thao had been a nurse for several years prior to the event, Thao did not follow the proper protocol to ensure that patient's safety. She gave her un-prescribed medication which resulted in Jasmines death.

I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.
When re-enacting the conversation with his father, he portrayed his father as verbally and physically abusive. “Stupid, worthless, no-good […]” (Hughes, 1985) was the words his father used to describe him just before hitting him. Bender’s family often goes against societal norms shown when Bender explained that his father gives him cigarettes for Christmas (Hughes, 1875). Consequently, Bender does not have a strong understanding of what society expects of him, as his family, being his first agent of socialization, never taught him. Values that were learned by Bender varied significantly from an average student.
It is evident that Melinda was depressed as she was biting her lip and cutting her wrist with the end of a paperclip. Due to her depression, she was not fully understood by many people, such as her parents and Heather. For example, when Melinda cut her wrist, her mom said, "I don’t have time for this Melinda" (88). Since her mom does not bother to take the time to comprehend her situation, it is clear that she does care about how Melinda feels. Moreover, Melinda’s behavioural issues stem from her depression and lack of desire to actively engage in her life.
days old. Growing up Paige has had 17 surgeries on her legs, back and arms. Paige also has Cerebral Palsy. When first meeting Paige she comes across as a bit standoffish, she does not like to answer questions or start any conversations she like her comfort zone.

As a future nurse, this is startling and makes me apprehensive to work in a hospital environment with patient care, breaking my back was not part of my job description (www.bls.gov/news.release/archives/ osh2_11082012.htm.) According to the American Nurse Association thirty-five years of research show that training alone is not effective. There is also little evidence that gait belts are effective. It is also a complete myth that just because a nurse is physically fit, they are less

The house is in Mr. Boggs name and he is residing in the house for the last 50 years. Randel is the youngest child, 17-year-old Caucasian male, who was placed out of home for illegal drug use, aggression (hitting, punching, pushing, swearing, and cursing) towards his father, non-compliance, defiance, running away from the home with whereabouts unknown, truancy, and unsatisfactory
To prepare Susie and her family for changes they are about to undergo with moving a chronically ill family member in the home and providing care, the first thing that the nurse should perform is an assessment of the family member(s) who will be providing care, which is also known as a caregiver assessment. The caregiver assessment focuses on the person(s) providing care by collecting data and identifying what their strengths are, what will their needs be, and what resources they will need (Collins & Swartz, 2011). The assessment focuses on areas such as how the caregiver perceives the functional status of their loved one, what type of care they may have to give, their own values and preferences, their health, the need for support systems, etc.,
The Burns family is the first Black family I met in the ward. Albert Burns Junior was cool because he had swagger, as is the contemporary way to address it, though my acumen for slang is less than impressive. Albert Junior was like Dexter, cool; however, his cool manifested itself differently in my estimation—and it is my estimation as I am he who relates this tale. Adulation radiated from me towards Albert because he grew up in the church with both parents, and I wanted that. So, I watched him—errantly assuming that through scientific observation I could glean how to achieve a nuclear family as desirable as the Burns family.
