Losing oil means not just problems for auto transport, but massive problems for agriculture. Our food is almost totally dependent on oil and natural gas to power tractors, for fertilizer, to bring food to market. Cuba had widespread blackouts, not only did the economy suffer, but so did food. Without refrigeration, food must be eaten soon after it is harvested or else it would spoil. According to the film, Cubans were on the edge of starvation child malnutrition was rampant and the average Cuban lost 20 pounds.
Probably the most notable barrier is the lack of health insurance coverage. Despite the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans are still without health insurance. Also, due to rising health care costs, people have only limited access to care. Language is another barrier to health care. Many Hispanics living in rural area here in the U.S. encounter problems with communicating with health care providers.
Chantra Horton ACC281 Accounting Concepts for Health Care Professional The California Sutter Health Approach Mark Strictlett January 30, 2012 An increasing issue within the health care field is the inability to collect debt from the growing population of uninsured or underinsured patients. Health care organizations may be struggling to meet operational margins because the industry has never treated its customers like other retail- oriented sectors of the economy. Hospitals incur sixty billion dollars in bad debt annually because the typically collect only ten to twenty percent of a total uninsured patient balance after service. This is due to a number of reasons, including poor accounting practices, or a lack of patient information.
The facts that the article contains are all negative statistics about Cuba. The fact that the average state wage is $20 a month and that ninety percent of the economy is run by the state are both negative. Even carpenters, plumbers and shoe repairmen, are employed by the state. The state owns everything and the system that Cuba has is not working. Even though the state is attempting to create more jobs in the private sector, the government is also trying to take advantage of this by renting out state facilities.
Because of this surgery was very limited except in times of war. In 1867 a man called Joseph Lister ( later known as the father of antiseptic surgery) discovered a link between the lack of cleanliness in hospitals and the deaths after operations and devised a fine spray using carbolic acid which he used on and aroung the open wounds, this combined with the washing of hands greatly reduced the number of patients who contracted infections after surgery and led to a dramatic fall in fatalities. The evolution of healthcare throughout the years has been an ever changing process of social, political and economic history. Healthcare has evolved from a simple system of homecare remidies and physicians, most of them with little or no training, to the era of scientific medicine which we know today. In the later years of the nineteenth century, voluntary visiting associations started providing care in the general
California Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan Rhonda Barkey HCA 415 Community & Public Health Dr. John Moore July 9, 2012 Quality healthcare insurance can be hard to come by for a large majority of the American population. There are those who cannot get quality healthcare for reasons such as affordability or a pre-existing condition, but those that do have access to medical insurance, either through their employer or from a private vendor, are paying extremely high prices and oftentimes the benefits are limited. Our government, both local and federal, is spending billions of dollars every year to help individuals who have no access to healthcare. The red tape that one has to go through to get access to these government-funded
Too many Americans are forced into bankruptcy due to high out-of-pocket medical care expenses” (Miller 3). It just doesn’t feel right to these citizens that basic healthcare is outside of their reach just because they have lost their job or chose a career path that was not as profitable as some others may have chosen. After all, every job must be done and not everyone can be among the elite. However, that should not mean that the people who do the lower class jobs should suffer medically. This is the argument that is the backbone of those who press for a universal healthcare
I chose this country because I was born there and although I am an American Citizen it is unfortunate that I don’t know about my country’s health care. The Dominican Republic has three different medical systems. The first is a socialized system, mainly for the indigent and extremely poor of the country. In theory, the government provides free medical care to anyone who walks into the appropriate medical facilities. In practice, the patient may need to purchase many of the medical supplies and pay a minimum fee for services.
For example, some differences are water and sanitation, diseases (such as HIV), medicine and medical treatment. Water and sanitation is a factor which differs in developing and developed countries. The lack of clean water in many developing countries is one of the main issues. “In 2000, more than 830 million people in Asia Pacific region did not have access to safe drinking water.” (UN-HABITAT ORG, 2010).This sort of scenario does not occur in a developed country as it would not be seen as acceptable, and there would be a national uproar as citizens in developed countries know and stand up for their rights, unlike the poor people in these countries who know that nothing will help them. “UK water suppliers place the highest priority on assuring the quality of water provided to their customers.
by the rises in prices, there are lots of poor people who don’t have money to go to the big hospital, but there is no doctor wants to work in township hospital, because they can’t get lots of money from that hospital.
