We learn early on that Holden cares very little about things and doesn’t apply himself, which is why he gets kicked out of his private school. From the way he presents himself I gathered that something terrible must have happened to him, especially since he will not talk about his early childhood. 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.
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.
Moreover, Bender’s household is a distinct factor in his deviant behaviour. 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.
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.

An estimated 12% of nurses leave nursing annually because of back injuries and more than half complain of chronic back pain. 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
