● Health Status The ill health of a child could mean he/she may have to spend a lot of time in hospital , this would mean being absent from preschool and school affecting education on all levels, including emotional and social aspects of making friends etc. Health conditions such as asthma triggered by certain conditions could affect a child's physical development and need hospital/doctors visits etc. A Child with Asthma may get breathless taking part in physical activities and will have to use an inhaler to open the airway. A Child’s health will also be affected during pregnancy if the mother is drinking or taking drugs. This could result in premature birth and low birth weight which can then lead to a slower development rate.
There are some patient quality and safety measures which have been shown through research to be significantly affected by nursing care or “nurse-sensitive” measures. These are collected through a combination of medical record review and administrative data, according to common definitions. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators is a leading voluntary system for collection and analysis of these data. (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) “The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators® (NDNQI®) is a proprietary database of the American Nurses Association. The database collects and evaluates unit-specific nurse-sensitive data from hospitals in the United States.” (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) Knowing about pressure ulcer prevention and the risk factors to look for would have helped the CNA to be more cognizant of the fact the this particular patient was in the beginning
Some ideas and theories in science meet with resistance. One of the examples when an idea is meeting with the resistance is immunization. More often children immunization meets with public resistance. As the vaccination of children is parents' decision many decides not to do it. Data published by NHS show that there is high number of measles reported due to 1-16 years old children who missed the vaccinations between 1990s and 2000s.

Safe and Quality Care Western Governors University Safe and Quality Care Studies conducted in the 90’s to the early 2000s revealed hospital nurse staffing issues and adverse patient outcomes were correlated. During this time when nursing shortage peaked, nurses reported understaffed units, burnout, and job dissatisfaction. It was reported that under-staffing was strongly associated with increased mortality. During this time “nursing-sensitive indicators” were developed to reflect elements of patient care that are directly affected by the nursing practice. These indicators revealed three aspects of nursing care: * Structural (supply of nursing staff, skill level, education and certification levels) * Process (measurement of

Addy was still weak from the efforts of her labour, and still sore and bleeding, but she knew she had to leave and she had to leave today" (Lansens 271). Then, when Addy loses Chick, she handles the situation in a better way: "She would not pass through the big oak doors though. Instead she climbed the fire escape stairs, stepping around Mr. Baldwin's winter wood and kindling, intent on keeping her memories at bay" (Lansens 472). Addy is able to overcome the feeling of hurt fast after the death of her second child because she already faces a similar dilemma with her first child. She leaves a whole country to conquer the feeling of loss of her first child whereas she simply decides to ignore the passage her family used to take together in her building after her second child dies.
As Mary’s brother Laurie ran way from home after the clash with their father Calvin Pye, their mother got sick. Since Calvin was very irritated with his children, life was somewhat lonely for Mary which eventually forced her to get close to Matt. An excerpt from novel as narrated by Kat can exemplify how solitude contributed in fabricating the bond between Kate and Matt: “Mrs Pye was in a really serious state that summer, and that worry about her, coming on top of everything else, was more than Marie could bear alone. So she turned for comfort to matt. If she’d had more friends, or if her mother had had family living near, or if Calvin hadn’t alienated the whole community … then maybe Marie would not have needed to turn so hard, so appealingly to Matt.
© 2009,Elsevier.) ANA’s survey related to nurse burnout. The online Journal of Nursing posted an article on Oct. 29.2007(Erikson&Grove) that shows how attending to the emotional dimensions of nurses’ work environments provides insight into the experience of burnout and why younger nurses may be particularly at risk…thus causing lower rates of retention. * Because of the nature of nurses’ work, they are at an especially high risk for experiencing the emotional exhaustion component of burnout. This is problematic because the stress, danger, exhaustion, and frustration that have become built into the normal daily routine of hospital nurses constitute the single biggest
