Her complaint was based on the failure of the psychiatrist in informing her whether or not her son’s illness is covered by PMB. Angela laid a complaint to the Department of Health on whose responsibility it was to inform the patient that the condition diagnosed is a PMB. No further answer was sent to her from the 15th of March to date. A follow up is required on this matter. Angela does not believe that the PMB code of conduct is widely used by most of the medical schemes and that it is a live document that is being addressed continuously.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement has about 1.56 billion dollars to spend on people, and even at that large number, it is still exceeded over time (Phillips). It often takes months for a disabled veteran to see a doctor or receive the treatment that they need. When a refugee touches American soil, they are immediately looked over by a doctor and shortly after that they are given the treatment that those doctors decide are necessary. For example, Syrian refugees are given homes, hot meals, money, and they are also being treated for things like illness, broken bones, open wounds, and even depression. An article regarding the resettlement process states, “Once they’re here, the federal government has an entire office dedicated to resettling them, making sure they get medical assistance and some spending money which is around $1000.
Amandeep’s situation was a bit different from mine. In my situation blame goes on all levels of health care; for instance, the patient I took care, had to go for his selective surgery even though he was not in situation for this surgery. His wife was terminally sick and was transferred in palliative care a day after he transferred to rehab unit. When he arrived rehab unit, nurses explained him that usually in rehab there are no passes allowed until the vehicle transfer assessments are done by the therapist. Due to the nurses’ heavy workload, they were being more task focused, the patient was not being heard or being asked why he was anxious or uncomfortable.
Evidence-Based Teaching Patient Selection The patient chosen for this evidence-based (EBP) teaching exercise C.S., a fifteen year-old Hispanic male who was recently diagnosed with type one diabetes two weeks ago. He presented to the clinic with his mother for follow up and blood sugar management.

He verbalizes questions regarding diabetes and blood sugar management and his mother expresses fears and worries about her son’s future.

The United States spent 18 billion dollars in the year 2000 with 17 million recipients. Moving forward sixteen years, the price has risen to 78 billion dollars and we now have 46 million recipients. Either more people are losing their jobs or they are just becoming lazy because they know they can receive benefits from the government and live off of them for their whole life. Another program that seems to be used incorrectly is Medicaid. Many people who have Medicaid or such government assistance abuse the privilege by going to emergency rooms across the country for non-emergency problems.
That right there is a plus, because there are many children in the United States with congenital defects that before this act would be denied or have limited access to insurance benefits because of their condition. The act also allows a person to stay on their parent’s health insurance until they are twenty-six (HHS). For a lot of people who are just graduating from high school, going to college, and just starting out on their own this is a huge benefit. I personally like this benefit right here because I cannot maintain a full time position with going to nursing school full time so I work PRN or as needed picking up as many hours as I can. Health insurance and benefits are only offered to full-time and certain scaled part-time employees.
Field Experience: Interview Rationale: I chose to interview my grandfather about his experience being the primary care-taker for my grandmother since she had a stroke roughly two years and eight months ago. The reason why I chose to do this is because while I’ve talked to my grandmother about her experience many times, I have never spoken to my grandfather about what it is like to be in the position in which he is.

I imagined it is hard for my grandfather; however I learned a lot about his duties
