An astounding memorial, a piece of artwork, and a commemoration of all the Veterans who died or went missing is all shown in this text. What started as not even being considered Veterans soon transformed into creating a whole memorial in memory of them. The author’s word choice in the, “Always to Remember,” portion of the title symbolizes and recognizes the bravery and dedication the Vietnam Veterans had to fight for our country.

When a patient goes to the doctor or medical specialist, they expect, and sometimes direly require, the upmost professionalism and quality of treatment. The same could be said of the expectations of the doctor, as to do their jobs require the patient to comply with their treatment or evaluation. Sometimes this is not the case. Often, trivial factors cloud the judgement of patients and medical professional alike, whether that be the one’s ethnicity, religion, or skin color. If such occurs, the risk of improper and ineffective treatment skyrockets.
Since nursing homes tend to provide care to a vulnerable population they can be taken advantage of, overlooked or mistreated by staff and with residents potentially underreporting these incidents due to fear of retaliation by staff identifies this as significant ethical issues among nursing homes. The use of restraints that restricts a resident, whether physical or chemical applies to the ethical considerations within a nursing home as it not only impacts the resident, it can affect staff members and other resident’s safety. There is always the conflict between providing the resident with a fair amount of decisions regarding their activities of daily living, special accommodations, and independence.

There were 127 medical malpractice cases in Pennsylvania last year. An example of these cases could be an exploratory surgery to diagnose a patient and the incision became infected because the patient failed to clean the incision sight properly. Seems to me that the doctor was just doing his/her job but in the end, he/she got sued. Medical malpractice can be described as an act or omission by a doctor or physician that lead to the harm of a patient (Kindy). Certain laws and bills have been put in place to discourage people from suing doctors for problems that are completely out of the doctor’s hands.

As a result, many hospitals fail to achieve a vaccination rate high enough to prevent the spread of the influenza virus. A recent article states that "only 42% of [health care workers] received the seasonal influenza vaccination during the 2005-06 influenza season" (Maroyka and Andrawis). Lower vaccination rates undoubtedly result in higher numbers of hospital-acquired influenza. In order for a hospital to reach an optimal rate of vaccination, yearly mandatory influenza vaccinations must be required, and the consequences for refusing the vaccine must be severe enough to motivate health care workers to receive

Organizational managers are the ones who plan, organize, lead, and control what resources they have. On top of all of that, they are also responsible for enacting HIPAA into their day to day routine. HIPAA is clearly a huge deal, so the employees must understand what it is and what it entails so they do not turn out like Jamie Knapp. First off, the manager must teach employees about how to secure medical records. Not only do records need to be kept from people outside the workplace, but also from employees that aren’t authorized to see the information.
However, the scientists cannot agree with this opinion and, over the past 100 years, they have been trying to prove that the root canals can implement danger. Most of the root-canaled teeth look and feel good. However, there is a possibility that they can become incubators for very harmful anaerobic bacteria.

Ethics is the sole base of distinguishing between right and wrong; however, right and wrong are controversial issues that usually are determinate through other words like good and bad. It is clearly evident that the context within a sentence can determine the actions done were good or bad. For example, Chaloner stated, “It was so good of you to bake me a cake”, but there is a possibility that the ingredients in the cake were bad so the context indicated good but in reality is was not a good deed. Laws are usually based on good ethics; therefore, it is sometimes easier to make decisions because certain laws require certain actions to be completed.
