Overall I think that a person who is CPR certified should not be forced to take full action in the scene of emergency due to the many risk factors such as legal action being filed, further injury, and or a person’s comfortability. CPR is overall a possible life saver that when performed correctly can double, possibly triple, your chances of living after you suffer some sort of fatal heart complication. Will CPR really save someone’s life if they’re forced to help and don 't put their heart into it? Who will really be the one hurting when CPR is forced to be
However, this should be a learning experience that hospitals have to be more prepared for situations like this to happen. A number of factors like how the Memorial Medical Center was built was a huge problem, the power sources were vulnerable to the hurricane and were damaged. The wall 's structure of the hospitals was too weak and were able to get destroyed before help arrived. The faculty of the hospital were also in need of preparation on how to deal with the situation. We have to keep this in mind and remember that health care professionals will always have the best interest for us for our health and
Mainly due to the spontaneous nature of war, army doctors (like soldiers) came from various locations. Any doctors that existed, including university students, were thrown into the war if they satisfied requirements (NFB). This is likely a result of the sheer magnitude of predicted casualties. Along with this, however, doctors can never train in medical school what medical practice in war would be like which presented many issues. Referenced in a documentary regarding medical practice during war entitled John McCrae’s War: In Flanders Fields, “Nothing could’ve prepared [doctors] for what they’d experience” (NFB).
Today, air travel is considered the safest mode of transportation, but it hasn’t always been that way. When aviation was still developing in the early 20th century, it had many flaws that were realized only after major accident occurs. These accidents trigger vital improvements in safety that will, over time, create a virtually perfect air travel experience. One example of this type of accident is the 1956 Grand Canyon collision where United Flight 718 collided with TWA Flight 2 over the Grand Canyon. There were no survivors and investigators had to use the paint transfers and indentations on the wreckage to figure out how the planes collided and why.
This idea was far different from Grady’s typical public relations in the past, and example of which was a bumper sticker that highlighted the hospital’s trauma care: It said, “If I’m in a car crash, take me to Grady.” But Grady was more than that. Its officials believed it could rank among the best hospitals in the country. One only had to read their mission statement, their vision for the future and their values to understand what the officials
Putting seat belts on the buses has been up for debate for a long time,so what is holding the congress back from making it a law? The answer is according to NHTSA they believe that large buses have been proven to be very safe and doubt that adding seat belts would add any improvement and would just be more expenses,but they have many benefits to the safety of people.Buses should have seat belts to reduce the amount of injuries/deaths,improve behavior, and shows good safety habits. Having seat belts on buses could be very beneficial to reducing the amount of injuries.There have been many accidents in the past few years that could have had a better outcome if seat belts were a law for buses.In Houston, 2 teenage girls were killed while being ejected from the bus. Now if they had their seat belts on.…. oh wait there are none.
The Vietnam war itself wasn’t as bloody compared to other wars, but the percent that died is similar. Learning about World War II veterans, it is important to consider how veterans deal differently with their grief, the job of combat medics, and how those medics have a higher chance of experiencing PTSD after the war. Many lives were lost during the war and people were affected differently by these deaths. When people in general lose a close friend or a loved one, they experience grief in different ways. Losing a friend in battle could be a whole different situation, resulting in more
Air transportation security was discretionary to stresses over fiscal adequacy, and there was a strong impenetrability to copying through money to improve security. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was based on blockage and deferrals in like manner flying, and Congress was attempting to drop flight delays by requiring the flying machines to outfit explorers with better information and to improve stuff dealing with. Though Great Britain and Israel had made strong explorer and stuff screening controls, there were no such traditions in the United States. The
Long-term healthcare facilities are designed for patients who need help with their daily functions such as eating, bathing, dressing, running errands etc. These patients are not able to perform these activities by themselves and require a hired professional in order to live a somewhat normal life. Long-term care is for patients who have a temporary or long-term illness, disability or some type of injury affecting their ability to perform day-to-day activities. This type of healthcare facility is different than a hospital because hospitals are for acute problems that acquire immediate medical attention for example a stroke. The long-term facility would be used after the patient was treated at the hospital and now require around the clock care at home to help them perform their daily activities that they are unable to perform themselves.
Documentaries and articles have described how they could have prevented the sinking. The Titanic was “unsinkable”, because they had the latest and most ingenious safety devices. At the size of four city blocks, the titanic held two thousand, two hundred twenty-eight passengers. Only seven hundred five passengers survived. With the Titanic’s capacity it could have held forty-eight lifeboats, but White Star Line decided to only carry twenty lifeboats to keep the decks from being too crowded and to cut costs.
whereas a long response time could mean it being to late for intervention and treatment. The only practical way of shorting response times in Fayette county would be to add another EMS station with a fifth full time ambulance. This would give the county move life saving resources and reduce the time between the initial 911 call and final care of a hospital. Unfortunately, there are a couple of complications that arise by adding a fifth Ambulance Unit. First it a huge expense to buy a new Unit and to completely outfit it with the appropriate equipment and gear.
Amputation was a familiar use during the Civil War. Since medicine wasn’t advance during the war to give the necessary treatment to the solider for a bullet in their leg or arm surgeons saw amputation as the greatest survival for the solider (“Amputation”). The most amputated limbs were legs and arms (“Amputation”). In the medical tent the surgeons had numerous soldiers coming in with bullets in their limbs or diseases the soldiers have and if amputation was delayed for more than 48 hours there would be blood poisoning, bone infection, or gangrene in the solider (“Amputation”).
Sandy Hook Shooting On December 14, 2012 the most horrific school shooting happened. A young man took the lives of innocent children and adults. No one knew what was ahead of them that Friday morning as they woke up and went on with their daily routine. Adam Lanza took the lives of 26 people. There are clear statements as to why this happened.
87 students and three nuns died from the fire and its effects, and five more students died later from complications. The Chicago Fire Commissioner said that the main reason for the loss of life was the late alarm, however, NFPA blamed the deaths on insufficient exit capacity for the over-crowded school, and inadequate fire alarms and detectors, along with lack of fire drills. After the fire, the Fire Commissioner pushed to require sprinklers and fire alarms in all public buildings. Shortly after, it was amended and changed the city’s building codes. Fire alarms, alarm boxes, and fire drills, which were to be witnessed by the fire service, were also added.
Pou who was not trained in triage had to find a way to save as many lives as she could. Pou allowing the most healthy patients to evacuate first would allow for most of her resources to be used on the patients who needed them the most. I can agree with this choice because during the hurricane transporting patients was a difficult task. Terminally ill patients most likely would have not survived transportation in the immediate days following Hurricane Katrina. Therefore, keeping them in the hospital was safer than exposing them to the damage the hurricane cause, which would risk infection that could also lead to their
