D) Nancy has a negative Babinski's reflex bilaterally. Due to her deteriorating condition, Nancy is immediately referred to the neurologist. The ED nurse realizes that Nancy has probably suffered a left-sided brain attack. 3. Which clinical manifestation further supports this assessment?
This assignment will identify a vulnerable adult from my recent clinical experience. It will reflect on the physical, social, environmental and psychological factors that contributed to her vulnerability and discuss how they were addressed in practice. To maintain confidentiality, in accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s code of professional conduct (2008), the name of the person, hospital and the trust have been changed. The Lord Chancellors department (1997) defines a vulnerable adult as “a person over the age of 18 years, who is, or may be in need of community care services, for reasons of mental health, disability, age or illness and is, or may be unable to take care of, or protect themselves from harm or exploitation.” Vulnerable groups are often described as being those at risk of poor, physical psychological and social health, therefore we are all at risk of becoming vulnerable at some point in our lives. Groups that have a higher risk of becoming vulnerable include, children, people with learning and physical disabilities, people suffering with mental health problems, chronically ill people and the elderly.
They may also conduct research, act as consultants or provide education to staff and family members. This nursing career requires a high level of diligence and teamwork. You will work closely with parents, neonatologists and other nurse specialists to achieve optimal results for your tiny patients. There are three levels in the neonatal nursing specialty: • Level I care for healthy infants. The demand for this level of neonatal nursing is decreasing because mothers and newborn babies are now more likely to stay in the same room together after birth.
This would be difficult without informing the parents. The patient’s parents must be informed because the patient is at an age where she in not capable of making her own medical decisions. The committee may have been called in to advise the nurse and physician involved as to what steps they should take to inform the parents. Patient confidentiality is vital to maintain patient trust. When a nurse breaches this trust patient outcomes can be jeopardized.
Not one of the researchers believed that testing and overserving the men was unethical. Because the participants did not know in reality what they were being tested for, this study was wrongfully executed. Finally, the study showcased influential power. The testes were offered small yet desirables things such as free checkups, therapy if necessary, and rides to the clinics. Being that the subjects were financially handicapped, they willingly agreed to be tested for “bad blood.” Overall, this study was wrong morally.
The principle of utility states that the quality of life matters when it comes to pleasure, and if we were to make the quality of a person’s life better, we must be useful and relieve that person from pain and suffering. (Falikowski, 2005) We can also refer to Ayn Rand’s Ethical Egoism to conjure that physician’s assisting suicide is ethical, since there are few people in society who suffer from long-term illnesses for which there aren’t any permanent cures. Ending their life is the only cure to stopping their
Children may also be more likely to be born with handicaps because of problems or change in the mothers reproductive organs as a result of previously having an abortion. Not only can there be significant physical damages to a mother, but their can also be severe psychological damages as well. Post abortion depression is extremely common among women. Women who have aborted their fetuses may experience anything that ranges from mild depression, to suicidal thoughts, and in extreme cases, actual suicide. This proves that abortion can be detrimental to both a woman’s physical and mental health.
Are doctors lie to patients that will help them out? They found that patients don't know the truth or “keep in the dark”. They “feel betrayed.” (337) However, the partient knows the “truthful information, humanely conveyed, helps patients cope with illness: helps them tolerate pain better, need less medication, and even recover faster after surgery.”(337) I suggest that partients know their conditions immediately. If partient’s situation is terminal means almost the end of life. That will help them spend their remaining time carefully, and they don’t have doubts during the rest of the life.
People have said that if not for his temper and controlling ways their lives would have been good. To neighbors, Robert William Fisher seemed like an average guy that loved to help others whether it was when he was a firefighter, a surgical catheter technician or when he was respiratory therapist. However there was a dark side to Fisher. People close to him described him as a loner, who didn't want anyone
