3.3 Health care workers Health workers, desperately needed on the Ebola frontline, have been worst hit by the disease because they are in close physical contact with patients. There are not enough protective suits, particularly in remote areas, and there are risks of coming into contact with the virus when the suit is taken off, unless it has been thoroughly disinfected while still worn. Limited health workers to do the trail. Besides the debates among government and research institutes, there are also controversies towards health care workers on whether they should be firstly injected with the vaccine. Some people hold a affirmative alltitude towards the debate.
Vaccines are highly complex and many people feel that their lack of knowledge of what their contents are, steers them away. Some of the ingredients are considered harmful in large doses. For example, some polio vaccines contain 2-phenoxyethanol which is an antibacterial that is a skin and eye irritant. It can also cause headache, shock, convulsions, kidney damage, cardiac and kidney failure, and death (Pond 2011). Parents lack trust in the people and organizations who are testing the vaccines.
There are many reason why the society should be informed about self-harm (suicide). Many kids and adults can be practicing without even noticing a difference. As we seen oven the years there has been a increase of people who commited suicide and we yet have not decided to do something for them , there are so many live that have died because they have problems in there home or in school. We all have the same right of being treated the same. The ones who suffer the most are the parents for reasons of not being informed.
Vaccinations have been proven to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, but due to personal or religious belief, there are individuals who have refused to vaccinate their child and therefore put the public at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccines have helped stop the exposures to deadly diseases. Prior to the discovery of vaccine, vaccine preventable disease outbreak killed thousands of people around the world each year, but for those who survived the disease lived with life long complications. The most devastating disease that killed a drastic amount of innocent lives throughout the century is smallpox. According to the World Health Organization, “smallpox is an ancient disease caused by the variola virus.”(WHO).
Modern medicine provides people with the ability to protect themselves from the world’s most fatal diseases. Merely a century ago, it was not uncommon for a child to die as a result of diseases such as polio, pertussis, and tuberculosis. Today it is highly unlikely for a person to contract these diseases, let alone die from them. However, refusal of vaccinations has been increasing throughout the years. This is due to individual’s unfounded fears and imagined consequences associated with the idea of purposely inserting a disease into one’s body.
“Official statistics kept by the Oregon Health Authority show that about ninety percent of euthanasia patients were concerned about losing autonomy and not being able to engage in enjoyable activities. They also worried about loss of dignity (seventy-seven percent), losing control of bodily functions (forty-seven percent), and being a burden on their family and caregivers (forty-two percent).The hardships occur for the family members as well. Families often wonder if the treatment is worth the extra time and pain when, instead, they could die a “natural” death. For example, there are stories
This virus has vaccines associated with it, but it still kills tens of thousands of people every year. Hundreds of thousands of people go to the hospital to seek treatment from severe infections that occur. Good health and hygiene habits can help to prevent the spread of this virus, but every year brings about a new threat for an infection. This is why everyone should get a vaccination
In fact on several occasions, the USPHS actually sought to prevent treatment”. (21) Over the course of the trials and sometime afterward, withholding the penicillin led to over one hundred deaths of men, women, and children. The ethical stipulations grew continually worse as more information was released, “The study continued, under numerous US Public Health Service supervisors, until 1972, when a leak to the press resulted in its termination on November 16 of that year.” (“Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment” 1) As Allan Brandt explored in his article, the basis of the study and the lack of severe punishment afterwards was based on a consensus, “Scientists speculated that in the struggle for survival the Negro in America was doomed. Particularly prone to disease, vice, and crime, black Americans could not be helped by education or philanthropy.” (21) This experiment was successful in curing a disease and was enacted with good intentions; however, it is still viewed as negative because of the moral and ethical
The death toll keeps rising every year from other diseases such as measles, mumps, polio and so on. These diseases could be prevented by vaccinations, one example of eradicating a disease is smallpox; this vaccine does not exist anymore because the disease has been eradicated. “Vaccines are one of the best ways to put an end to serious effects of certain diseases” If we were to stop vaccinating diseases that are almost unknown would stage a comeback. Before long we would see epidemics of disease and children would get sick and die. (CDC,
Tobacco is known to be a killer of humans for many years, like Cancer, HIV, and other diseases. The world is still trying its best to fight the above disease in order not to kill the people. At the same time, especially the developed nations pour their millions of dollars to eradicate this disease not to kill their citizens. While the world agrees that other diseases should be eliminated, there is still debate about tobacco. Questions remain about whether people should be allowed to use tobacco if it is their choice, since it seems like giving people the ability to harm themselves.
Kian’s mom quotes,“When the doctors said that they couldn’t see any tumors any more, it was such a relief. To think that he has fought off 27 of them is just a relief” (Brave Little Boy Defied the Odds...). There are very few children around the world that are diagnosed with neuroblastoma each year. Kian went to the doctor many times before they actually figured out that he had neuroblastoma. The first couple times his mother brought him into the hospital she was told that he was just teething, then they took x-rays to see if he had any broken bones and he did not so they again, sent him home.
No veteran wants to admit that they have a disease, because they want to be seen as a tough individual. For example, many family 's force their loved ones to get treatment at the VA to help make their family better. PTSD makes the memory and senses more active and sensitive, this can be very disturbing to anyone. For example, a veteran who has PTSD has many blank stares throughout the day and can cause very bad dreams about what they saw over seas. All veterans who come home from war have received a diagnosis of
The government wanted clean teeth, but instead got disease and death. The government wanted us to remain healthy and have fresh teeth with every drink of water, but we got sick and most had died yet they still continued with the fluoride. The people of America are sometimes too naïve to figure out what the government does to us, and some are actually smart enough to stand up to them and call them out on their mistakes. The main cause of death in America, when it comes to disease, is cancer. It ravages the American landscape and takes thousands of lives a year.
Peer two response Hi Dayne, I don’t agree with the outcome of this case. First of all the doctor treated the patient with the best information he had which was incomplete. Second the patient didn’t come back for a year? This seems inconceivable that somehow now the doctor is being held responsible. There is no way that patient was symptom free for a year if she was literally at a stage of cancer that was incurable.
