Typically, the Mental Health Act covers two groups of people, those who develop depression or dementia in later life and people with lifelong mental health disorders like manic depression or schizophrenia. Social workers, GP’s and trained mental health doctors each assess the person and decide together whether they need to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Patients have a number of rights once they have been admitted into a psychiatric hospital; these include being informed of the reasons why they have been admitted and their rights to appeal, being allowed to have the case reviewed at a Mental Health Act Review Tribunal and to have a commissioner from the Mental Health Act Commission visit them regularly. Informal patients can be asked to give consent to the treatment they are being offered, formal patients will also be asked to give consent, but if they refuse the treatment can still go ahead in certain circumstances. ECT and Neurosurgery differ from usual treatments.

Claims/Assumptions/Evidence Jacqueline Stallone, the sole rediscoverer of rumpology and the writer of the article “About Rumpology,” explains what Rumpology is and how it works. According to Stallone, Rumpology is a way for people to receive some sort of understanding of their past and future life and about their personality through rump readings.

This paper will use the article by Pamela Nelson entitled “BIOETHICS ON NBC'S ER: Betraying Trust or Providing Good Care?

From opening up in one area such as the open area (Be open and honest NMC, 2008) you and the patient gain an insight into the unknown area- you receiving possible feedback, and in turn becoming self-aware. In mental health nursing through similar intervention, the patient reveals their genuine attitudes to themselves and as a nurse reflects on what he says and feels, he can then become aware of his attitudes (Interpersonal Relations in Nursing: A Conceptual Frame of Reference for psychodynamic nursing.

Peplau 1991 springer publishing company new york), thus understanding their problem more completely (Collins 2009) Communicating in nursing can be complex (Spouse at al 2008) involving both verbal and non-verbal means. My focus here will be on the latter, due to the fact it accounts for ninety per cent of communication taking place.

Alisha Washington Information Governance Professor Griffin Information Technology August 12, 2012 Abstract Healthcare IM/IT management must be mindful of particular government interventions to successfully manage their organization. Government becomes involved in healthcare because the government recognizes the challenges of the healthcare field such as, cost, quality, an access to care. In this paper I will analyze the primary causes of IM/IT project failures and recommend 3 practices that could be adopted by any organization to avoid such failures in the future. Also, I will determine the most effective way that a project metrics and portfolio management can facilitate IM/IT governance. Lastly, I will analyze the various types of government intervention into healthcare business and argue for or against such intervention.
