In adherence to paragraph five of the NMC code of professional Conduct (2008) which requires nurses to maintain anonymity and confidentiality, a pseudonym is used in this critical incident for the identity of the patient. The patient will be called John. I was a novice in my last placement in a dementia ward. It was a Monday morning, all the patients were having their breakfast in the lounge .It was my second week of placement where I was asked by a nurse to go and observe a suicidal patient suffering from anorexia nervosa. The patient was a 37 year old male named John.
“It’s not the last straw which broke the camel’s back.” In J.D. Salanger’s, Catcher in the Rye, the protagonist, Holden Caulfield, has many mental breakdowns. Though it may not have been one solitary event that pushed him off the edge, the one thing that started the whole ordeal was his brother Allie’s death. ”He’s dead now. He got leukemia and died when we were up in Maine, on July 18, 1946” (p. 38) Holden refers to his brother multiple times in the novel, showing how much impact Allie had on his life.
Throughout this assignment I will be using a pseudonym to maintain patient confidentiality in order to conform to ‘The Nursing and Midwifery Code’ (NMC, 2008). Harry Jones is an 82 year old male who was transferred to the ward with a left fractured neck of femur, following a fall in his home. As a result he was due to have a hemiartroplasty that day. Harry lived at home with his 79 year old wife and his dog. He has been retired from the police force for 21 years.
During one of his last political meetings, in 1945 FDR attended the Yalta Conference with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin in order to discuss reorganization due to the recent war. (Beard, 407) Afterwards, Roosevelt returned to his hometown of Warm Springs, Georgia and on April 12, 1945 he passed away, suffering from a massive cerebral hemorrhage. His two cousins were with him, Laura Delano and Margaret Suckley. Also by his side was his former mistress, Lucy Rutherford. (Coker, 168) America was unprepared for his death, although some noted that he looked rather sickly and tired in recent photographs and conferences.
Within that setting, the film tells the story of Conrad's attempts to deal with the guilt he feels after his brother's death. A series of psychotherapy sessions with Dr. Berger (Judd Hirsch) plays a crucial role. Seeing Dr. Berger also helps Calvin understand some things, and when in a midnight confrontation he tells Beth of his sorrow that she has substantially changed for the worse, she packs her bags and leaves. The film ends early the next morning, with Conrad and his father in an emotional embrace on the front steps of their home. The movie ‘Ordinary People’, as its name implies, basically deals with average people who are actually very common in real world as their problems are.
Mark Twain was and still is a literary idol for writers to always look up to, and the way he wrote he even became a political figure in America. To change his work without his permission, legal or not, is morally and ethically inappropriate. Carol Lucas said, “I think that if one is to edit Twain and omit what one might think is unacceptable, then one has to start in Shakespeare, the Roman and Greek comedies, most French and British comedies of the 18th and 19th centuries, and so on. Might as well rewrite all of history” (). Through this quote one can easily see how editing Twain’s masterpiece would be a queue for editors around the world to go and edit every inappropriate word of a dead writer’s work.
He has shown this throughout the novel by showing how Curley’s wife was ignored by the men, how Crooks was discriminated against because of the color of his skin, and how Lennie ultimately died because no one understood him. John Steinbeck masterfully used symbolism to reflect society during the 1930’s. Because of this novel we get a true view on how life was during this time. He had a true realist perspective and it unquestionably was evident throughout the novel. Even in today’s society, though, the message that Steinbeck wished to display would have been seen as applicable.
Rip Van Winkle was known to be the man who slept for 20 years. Rip’s sleep caused him to miss the Revolutionary War and America’s transition from colony to nation. When he awakens he finds out that everything and everyone has changed. During his 20 year sleep Rip misses events such as the Revolutionary War in which some of his friends fought and died for. Rip also missed out on America’s transition from colony to nation, so that when he enters the village and yells “I am a poor quiet man, a native of the place, and a loyal subject of the King, God bless him!” (2317).
Bob's Death In 1998, a prepared obituary by The Associated Press was inadvertently released on the Internet, prompting Hope's death to be announced in the U.S. House of Representatives. Hope remained in good health until old age, though he became a bit frail. In June 2000 he spent nearly a week in a California hospital after being hospitalized for gastrointestinal bleeding. In August 2001, he spent close to two weeks in the hospital recovering from pneumonia. Books Bob Hope (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was a comedian and actor who appeared on Broadway, in vaudeville, movies, television, and on the radio.
The Dead Father Jerome Klinkowitzís remarkably insightful review of Donald Barthelmeís work begins with an anecdote about an evening they spent together in Greenwich Village (Barthelmeís home for most of his life as a writer), and how a perfectly Freudian remark by Barthelmeís wife put a stop to the writerís boorish mood:ìëWhy Donald,í she said, ëyour fatherís is bigger than yours.íShe was referring to their respective biosin Whoís Who in America.î It is Klinkowitz's well-argued contention that Barthelmeís mid-career novel The Dead Father (1975) not only represents the high-water mark of his skill as a technical master of postmodern prose, but that it also embodies the central neurosis/inspiration driving nearly all his work, from his first published story, ìMe and Miss Mandibleî in 1961, to his last novel, Paradise (1986). (Though The King is mentioned by Klinkowitz, it is clear he considers it to be barely part of the Barthelme canon. )For Klinkowitz, Barthelmeís near-obsessive goal as a post-modernist is to ìburyî his modernist father.For instance, Klinkowitz writes that, while at first glance ìMe and Miss Mandibleî seems a perfectly Kafkaesque tale of a man awakening to grotesquely transformed circumstances, in fact it is ì[f]ree of overweening anxiety and not painfully dedicated to existential questioning or angst ...î ì[Barthelmeís] first inclination is to laugh at rather than flail angrily against the forms and themes of an earlier style ...îKlinkowitz cites ìThe Indian Uprisingî and ìThe Balloonî as oft-anthologized stories which epitomize Barthelmeís work prior to The Dead Father; pieces which came to represent the postmodern short story with all its socially savvy and technically sophisticated style, yet stories whose primary tone is comic rather than the stilted existential dread of Barthelmeís modernist precursors.Thus anxiety of influence
