Her husband BM was admitted to us as a nursing case towards the end of last year as his health was deteriorating fast he still liked to see JM on a daily basis and although they had separate rooms they spent a lot of time together.

In the beginning of our interview, I asked A.J. how she would describe her physical health at her current age and how it affects her daily life. In response, she rated her overall health as mediocre because she has issues with diabetes, arthritis, and sarcoidosis; an inflammatory disease that affects the respiratory system. In the case of her diabetes, she explained that she has to check her blood sugar daily to make sure it is not too low or too high. She has had this condition for several years but still feels that she misses out on the many foods that she enjoys.
For her health, even though she goes to the renal center in Penticton every 6 months shows that her kidney failure, for the most part, is not as serious as other peoples can be.

Adler and Proctor II imply that individuals cling to first impressions. I do not know why I sat down and started talking to her. I just could not stand to see her cry, so I sat down and asked what was wrong and if I could do anything to help. She began explaining that she had been on vacation for a week and now the paperwork was a mess, and money was missing from the store. Although she was not yelling, her voice was above the normal for my comfort and her hands were constantly

I can connect with others when they are feeling pain or uneasy, and I try to find solutions for dealing with it. One time at my current job I had a patient that appeared to be non-verbal. The patient cried all the time. Every time I came into work I would greet the patient in a pleasant manner, but the patient did not respond.

I asked her several questions about her job. She told me “Nursing has many ups and down times.” She begin to say “Helping out people and caring for others is the enjoyment of the job however, watching someone take there last few breathes is the hardest to deal with.” Nursing may have disadvantages but nursing a person back to good health.
