It is important that any child placed has a positive image of himself and anything you can do to promote this will be helpful. 2. To Promote Positive Health Care This involves consulting the doctor, the hospital as necessary and the dentist and optician regularly, as you would with your own child. Also, there are the wider issues associated with health such as promoting exercise, ensuring children have a balanced diet and are educated about the negative effects of smoking, alcohol and illegal drugs etc. A statutory medical assessment is arranged shortly before or after placement and usually the foster carer accompanies the child to this.
This stronger focus helps to enable the nurse to make more educated decision on what to focus on with an individual or family and prioritize so that the family is not overwhelmed. When a nurse is assessing a family it is important to look at the individuals’ health and developmental stage and how it affects the family as a whole. This paper will show how using Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns is a useful tool in assessing a family. The family interviewed consist of a 31 year old husband with a Hispanic background that is a P.E. teacher and a 30 year old wife with an African American background that is a critical care R.N.
Marianne’s husband needs to know that once she undergoes surgery there is a good chance that they will need to have some lifestyle changes.

Height: 160.5 cm Mass: 59.4 kg Temperature: 36.7 0C Respirations: 13 per minute Blood Pressure: 118/76 mm Hg During her conversation with the doctor regarding her past medical history, Anita said that she had developed severe eczema about 5 years ago and mononucleosis the previous year. From April of the current year, she found that she felt fatigued quite often, frequently experienced diarrhea, myalgia and arthralgia. Her family doctor had referred her to an allergist who found negative reactions to a multitude of substances. Because her symptoms were so severe, more specific testing was done 2 months later. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay showed positive reactions to gluten, spelt, albumin, lactose, barley and rye.
Students and parents need to be advised of this requirement so that students are not left without access to critical medication. For further information see storage of prescribed medication. A letter (Ms word 107kB) to parents/carers has been prepared to confirm arrangments for the administration of the student's medication at school. It is the principal's responsibility to fully inform relevant staff of the management implications of students requiring the administration of prescribed medication. Except in an emergency, only individual staff members who have volunteered and been trained, will administer prescribed medication to students.
The children of the patient are thinking of what their mother would have wanted if she were able to speak. The nurses legal and moral obligation is to uphold primacy of the patient's interests (American Nurses Association, 2012). The nurse should involve the ethics committee, whose purpose is to bring to light the wishes of the patient and facilitate a discussion. The clinical information is broken down for the family members. The patient's prognosis and overall quality of life is discussed to determine what course of action should be taken in the best interest

(www.who.int) Other unsafe practices, such as poor collection and disposal of dirty injection equipment, expose healthcare workers and the community to the risk of needle stick injuries. The most recent study performed indicates that each year unsafe injections cause an estimated 1.3 million early deaths, a total loss 26 million years of life, and an annual burden of USD 535 million in direct medical costs. Unsafe injection practices are a powerful engine to transmit blood-borne pathogens, including hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human
Functionalist perspective on health emphasizes that good health and effective medical care are essential for a society’s ability to function. If someone is ill for example the four young children living in the house, Tamsela her father and her mother all have the right to be on the sick role until they get better. Talcott Parsons came up with the sick role in 1979. Functionalists believe that they have rights and responsibilities when ill, their rights would be to drop out of day to day activities that they are used to and the right to be looked after and cared for. However their responsibilities would be to get better and get back to doing day to day activities.
