And after a year she took early retirement. This is not a good way to retire and her life will never be the same .A study was done showing that by increasing nurse staffing by one additional RN per patient-day would avoid seven cases of hospital-acquired pneumonia in ICU patients, and less risk for development of late-onset ventilator associated pneumonia. (Penoyer, 2010, pg.1525) In my area of specialty postpartum unit, three years ago we were assigned five couplets that mean charting on ten patients. Since AWHONN reviewed this unsafe practice we are now assigned three couplets. Let’s not forget we are charting on six patient mother and baby.
It is estimated that fewer than ten percent of adverse events after vaccine use are ever reported to VAERS. If only ten percent of all adverse events associated with Gardasil are being reported to VAERS, there could have been up to 100,000 health problems that were never reported. As of August 31, 2008 twenty-seven deaths have been reported to VAERS involving Gardasil. Although adverse event reports to VAERS do not prove causation, they can alert the NVCIA that Gardasil is causing health problems. Recently uncovered were VAER reports of HPV infection, genital warts and cervical lesions after Gardasil vaccination.
Sources that can help us plan staffing models or determine appropriate nurse-to-patient ratios include standards defined by professional nursing organizations and regulatory agencies, and benchmarks from the American Nurses Association’s National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators. Context Nurses have been fighting for better staffing for a long time. This year in February, registered nurses in our nation’s capital gathered together to announce the introduction of safe staffing legislation that would set minimum, numerical RN-to-patient ratios in district hospitals, with extra staffing depending on the acuity of the patient (DC nurses, 2013). In 1999, California became the first state to pass legislation mandating minimum nurse-to-patient ratios (Chapman, et al., 2009). Nursing unions in California lobbied for this legislation because nurses were overworked and patient safety was an issue.
(Education School District,2014). The unemployment rate was 9.5% in January 2013, dropping to 7.5% by November 2013. The rate decrease was due to the tourist season. Inyo County has 2 hospitals, and only 1 that delivers babies, several of the residents deliver outside of Inyo County: Births 214 Infant Deaths 2 Deaths
This also is a nebulous concept, since the health of the mother could be affected by depression over being pregnant due to irresponsible behavior. According to statistics, about 98% of the abortions performed in the United States are elective, meaning that the health of the mother was not a factor in the decision to have the procedure (Johnston, 2008). Most health issues that affect expectant mothers are treatable without endangering the life of the mother or the fetus. A notable exception to this is the ectopic pregnancy, where the fetus attaches itself to the ovary or fallopian tube. In this instance, the carrying of the fetus to term could kill both the fetus and the
In other words, 11% of American citizens do not own a government-issued photo ID. At least twelve states suggested legislation that would demand proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate, to register to vote. Proof of citizenship laws passed in Alabama, Kansas, and Tennessee. Recently, only two states had passed proof of citizenship laws, and only one had put such a requirement has more than doubled. At least thirteen states introduced bills to end highly popular Election Day and same-day voter registration, limit voter registration mobilization efforts, and reduce other registration opportunities.
Something so natural and beautiful may be just too controversial for the society we are currently living in. Breastfeeding is a natural and beautiful thing, it’s simply amazing what a woman’s body can do, but is there a looming cloud of controversy for women when it comes to breastfeeding and educating the public is the only way to put an end to breastfeeding discrimination. When a woman has a baby, she is immediately faced with many tough decisions. These decisions can include, what pediatrician to go to, what type of diapers to use, or daycare options. Menu probably isn’t at the top of the list, but there are mothers who are set on the idea of breastfeeding.
The majority of SIDS deaths transpire when an infant is between one month and one year of age (NICHD 1). In most cases, a parent goes in to check on their supposedly sleeping infant to find them not breathing. As tragic as it sounds, having an infant die as a result of SIDS devastates many families throughout the United States each year. While the amount of deaths has declined in recent years, about 2,500 infants die from SIDS each year (Children’s National Medical Center 1). In a 1969 conference, Bergman stated that SIDS did not depend on any "single characteristic that ordains an infant for death" (Guntheroth 2).
Taylor Walker 23 October 2014 Dark Abortion: A choice. Meet Savita Halappanaver, a young dentist attempting to start a family with her husband in Ireland. She was 17 weeks pregnant at the time she was notified of miscarrying her baby because of her back pain. She knew the fetus had no chance of survival and asked the doctors to terminate the pregnancy; they refused. The prolonged miscarriage caused blood poisoning, and although the doctors operated when the fetal heartbeat ceased, Savita’s heart, kidneys, and liver were already failing.
Death Row Kills Innocent People To date there are more than 18,500 California citizens waiting for organ transplants (Golden State Donor Service), An estimated 300 citizens will die this year from not receiving the organs needed (Golden State Donor Service). 18,000 children will die from malnutrition today alone. 9,300 California children needing plastic surgery (Children’s Hospital.Org) and 5 million California citizens are without health insurance (www.humanevents.com. In the quarter century since California voted overwhelming to restore the death penalty, county prosecutors and juries have put more condemned murders on death row in this state than any other except Texas. Despite the public’s willingness to hand out death sentences, California is one of the more hesitant among the 38 capital punishment states to use the death penalty.
