When the atrocities of world war two are brought up, many people think of the biggest travesties the war caused, like the holocaust and Pearl Harbor. They think of the Jews and Americans slaughtered with almost ungodly techniques, and the countries that committed these war crimes. But one such case never comes to the mind of the average Joe, Unit 731 and its founder, Shiro Ishii. Ishii was born into a rich family on June 25th, 1892 in the Kamo district, Chibe prefecture, and southeast of Tokyo (Byrd 15). Shiro joined the military as soon as possible due to his great love for Japan and the emperor (Ammentorp).
Police and prosecutors tend to downplay the violent assaults on health care workers unless someone is severely injured, even though 30 states have felony laws against it (Jacobson, 2014, p. 4). According to a descriptive study conducted by Lisa Wolf there were many instances in, which the legal, judicial system was unwilling to pursue charges against patients, or family members who assaulted nurses. Thus the focus on legislation to make an assault on health care workers a felony crime may have limited efficacy unless efforts are made to address society’s complacency toward violence against nurses (Wolf et al., 2014, p. 3). In Pennsylvania two house bill’s were introduced one in 2011 House Bill 1992.
As a result of Barbra selling her business, she was forced to conform to these new set of regulations as proposed by Universal, the medical company in which she sold her practice too. Upon reviewing this case it appears that Barbara is mostly frustrated with the decline in patient care. However, I think they’re ways to oblige to the new set of rules while still providing the best patient care possible. For example, every patient is billed for a minimum of an hour, utilize this opportunity by maybe incorporating a modality and/or manual therapeutic techniques as opposed to just providing therapeutic exercises. Home exercise programs may be given to new patients when they are discharged after meeting their insurance limits.
Roger Twitchel explained that the inapplicability of the contract is based on the legal opinion of Susan Stephens, the Assistant General Counsel, who communicated with Lynn Robinson. He is willing to meet with us and C. Luce to explore alternatives. He also mentioned the possibility of recruiting nurses instead of having a contract, which worked in the past.
Daniel Callahan’s position on age-based rationing is more sound in comparison to James Childress’s position. Within the article Ensuring Care, Respect, and Fairness for the Elderly by James Childress, he stresses the importance of reverence and equality to the elderly when it comes down to dealing with healthcare. This led to the illustrated conclusion that allocating healthcare in relation to age is unjust and not respectful (Childress, p.27-28). Childress gave the example of using a study about how twenty-five physicians were given details about forty patients and had to select thirty of them to treat.

Federal Advanced Directive Advanced directives became a national topic of discussion following the passage of the 1976 California Natural Death Act otherwise known as the Natural Death Law, Death with Dignity Acts, or Living Will Acts. California passed the law in 1976 after a 31 year old woman, Karen Ann Quinlan, slipped into a coma, was hooked up to life support equipment and her parent’s request “that the respirator be disconnected and that their daughter be allowed to die 'with grace and dignity, ' because there was no hope she would recover” (McFaden, R., 1985).
