Attending handover is very important as this gives us information on current situation of residents which helps us decide to prioritize our tasks and keep an eye on a particular resident if need be. After handover at around 8:10 pm I went to make tea trolley ready. My other colleague began to collect water jugs and checking residents at the same time. Before doing anything, I put my apron on and washed my hands properly and made sure all utensils are clean. Afterwards, I took milk and sandwiches out of fridge and checked it them if it’s good cause it’s very important to make sure that food isn’t contaminated with bacteria.
The first simulation involving the pregnant teen in labor, I used the results lens for the final decision. I choose to involve the parents and the primary nurse in the medical choices that had to be made in order to have a safe delivery. I choose not to go above the primary nurse and the parents because I felt that coming together and discussing the interventions that needed to take place would result in the best outcomes for all the primary stakeholders. Yes, the parents were being domineering with their wishes for their daughters labor, but they did not clearly understand the impending danger for both their daughter and unborn grandchild. I believe that if we as health care providers clearly explain the situation and danger that their loved ones are
Families first work together with the school to give a child the best possible start in life, If a child is referred to families First then they gather information from all other agencies to make an individual assessments for a child or young person’s needs. Families First can offer support and advise for : * Parenting (help and advice for parents) * Home management * Anger management/challenging behaviour * Wishes, feelings and self esteem * School attendance * The move from primary school to secondary school (some children find it very hard to deal with transitions.) * Healthy relationships (help promote this) * Anti-social behaviour and
I wanted to become an educator. Being raised in an impoverished area, my mom did her absolute best to provide for m sister and I the best way she knew how. While my mother invested in buying a home over 20 years ago, the depreciation of the neighborhood began heighten ad the schools around the area became low-income schools. The testing scores and the quality of teachers in that area offered a nervous feeling for my nephew to attend a school that did not offer the best education that
“This cut translates into approximately 400,000 students losing access to classes, and as many as 350,000 students could lose access to a community college education.” According to the college board, “The average tuition and fees for a 2-year public school is $2,713, while for a 4-year instate is $7,605 for the year 2011.” However, this does not cover all the necesities for school and living. The college board totalled all expenses to reach “$14,637.” If students would like to further their education for another to years the total amount would be “$68,000 and will grow dramaticallty to $196,300 in the year 2028. This is a 6% increase annually.” Community college is still a cheaper solution for those who continue with schooling, but the raising of tuition is making it harder for students to stay in school. The future of the country is in the hands of the younger generation. In order to successed in life, a college education is a must.
Most Americans worked a minimum wage job when they were teenagers to earn enough spending money. However, in our country today, over 3.5 million workers are making minimum wage, which, while working a 40 hour week, is not enough. A person who is working a 40 hour week on minimum wage would put a 2 person household below the federal poverty line of 15,130 dollars of yearly income. It would seem to many Americans that raising the minimum wage would be a good idea. But many Americans are not educated enough, especially economically, to know the difference.
Foster care is meant to be a temporary arrangement, though children stay in care for an average of two years, and there are currently over five hundred thousand children in care. “Roughly sixty percent of foster children return home; fifteen percent are adopted; and the remainder “age out” of foster care(“Breaking”).” Three-quarters of these children live with substitute families, one-third of which are headed by relatives of the children. Further, foster care policy directly targets children who appear to be at high risk of poor life outcomes. Abused children are three times more likely to die in childhood, with fourteen hundred child deaths each year directly attributed to child abuse. One doctor notes, “Those placed in foster care are far more likely than are other children to commit crimes, drop out of school, join welfare, experience substance abuse problems, or enter the homeless population(“National”).” In particular, nearly 20 percent of young prison inmates and 28 percent of homeless individuals spent some time in foster care as a youth.
This is not right or fair for the children growing up, because both parents should be in their lives daily to help in the upbringing. What is sad to see is a single mother raising children, doing her best, but lacking the other half of the "Parent Team", what is even more disturbing is to see a single mother trying to raise a son in this society that we live in, knowing that has to be a difficult task. Teaching a Boy to Be a Man Growing up as a kid you were use to seeing two-parent households, you saw the mothers tending to the daughters and the fathers tending to the sons. Both parents played in the raising of their child(ren). As time has passed it has become normal to see a single mother raising her child(ren).
At first my mother did what she needed to do, like try to help me get an education. After a while, I believe she got sick of doing it. That’s when my brother and I just walked around until she decided to put us in a public school. We were so excited about going to a real school, rather than home school. Yes, you may have a one on one thing at home, no bulling, and all the other stuff that goes on at school, but it’s not worth it if the person teaching doesn’t care.
They now receive different types of care packages from the social services, although people of our community would see this as a positive thing happening for the family, they might not look at it in this way as they are used to caring for their own family on their own without any help from anyone else. The pressure they may feel to live by the book, this pressure could be seen as coercion as the family really didn’t have a choice but to change their way of lifestyle due to ill health of some family members they simply couldn’t travel and carryon the traveller lifestyle. Also the Social Services are making the children go to school which is the norm of our community, in a traveller community education is a choice. All these different things from care packages to education have
