Despite his lack of a medical license or ability to practice medicine, everyone goes to him when they need help. They do not have the luxury of finding a real doctor or going to an actual hospital, so they full-heartedly accept what is available to them without question. Accepting what is available without question is a common theme seen throughout the story.
Regarding access to healthcare, transgender individuals often face the most obstructive barriers when attempting to receive care. Whether they are seeking access to hormones, therapy, general health services, reproductive healthcare, or specialty healthcare, transgender patients typically cannot get what they need without jumping through many hoops or hiding their identities. This occurs especially so in cases of intersecting identities -- where an individual is not just transgender, but is transgender and a person of color, disabled, gay, indigenous, undocumented, poor, etc. These intersecting identities interact in multifaceted ways to produce even more barriers for trans individuals seeking healthcare due to healthcare provider bias, insurance requirements, and doctors’ general unwillingness to help coupled with inaccessibility founded on racism, transphobia, homophobia, mental illness stigmatization, etc.
The second most likely diagnosis is dehydration. According to Arant and Canavan (2009), the diagnosis can be determined by if there has been vomiting, diarrhea, or decreased oral intake. The patient has had decreased tear production, a capillary refill time of more than two seconds, and decreased skin turgor (Arant & Canavan, 2009). All of this points to dehydration.

Even in the case of the Phan family, when the father stated that the mother had taken the child’s medication, he should have asked why she had taken the medication. He would have quickly learned that because of their culture mother often times did this to protect their children. Had he asked more question, he could have used this opportunity to educate the family on the dangers of taking medications that aren’t prescribed for the individual. He could have taken the time to build up the Phan’s trust in Western Medicine, and established a good rapport with this family and their child. Instead, both families left his office in a worse situation than when they arrived. Now, because of his actions their trust in Dr. Williams and Western Medicine may cause them to not visit him or any other Doctor again. The lack of trust could lead to a further delay in the treatment of the children and cause them to come sicker. As far as his interaction with Ms. Reese, he assumes that because this family has private insurance that she understands and will comply with instructions. But Nurse Rita has a valid concern.
The patient's idea of the physician is in contrast to the narcissistic patient's contempt, and disregard for the physician, who is keeping a sense of superiority over illness. Only the most senior physician in
I completely agree with you when you said having Diagnostic teams is important in providing quality healthcare. A holistic approach should be taken in treating patients instead of just independently working to find the diagnosis. It is important to acknowledge every profession that is involved in caring for a patient. In the ever changing world of health care, it is becoming very difficult for one individual to properly treat and care for individuals independently. These is because of the complex nature of some treatments.
Choice “C” is the best answer. This patient has an anion gap (sodium (149)- (chloride (114) + bicarbonate (15))=20) lactic acidosis (serum lactate 5.6 mmol/L) most likely secondary to an infectious etiology. He also has an elevated white blood cell count, a CT scan and X-ray suspicious for multiple nodular pulmonary infiltrates. The patient also meets criteria for severe sepsis: pulse >90 beats/minute, temperature greater than 38.0 °C, respiratory rate greater than 20/min, WBC greater than 12,000 cells/mm3 with signs of sepsis-induced tissue hypoperfusion (elevated lactate).
In order for the classroom to be a successful learning environment we have to follow three major keys. Those three major keys are listening,participate, and attend class everyday. Those major keys are the top three rules that you will need to succeed in this class.
It has been identified by the Royal Commission (2017) and by Michael Vita (2015), that staff training for both NT Detention Centres must be a priority. In both reports there was a large amount of data collected regarding the incident levels, behavioural management and staff training. As a result, data collection for the NT Youth Detention Centre Staff Training change management plan is required to be focused on detention centre staff’s current level of recorded formal training and to identify the needs of the centres to ensure an appropriate analysis for the development of a successful plan. It is therefore assessed that data collection well be composed though
Diagnostic Criteria (from the DSM-5): Excessive anxiety and worry, occurring more days than not for at least 6 months, about a number of events or activities. The individual finds it difficult to control the worry. For children only one of the following are required:
Classification of mental disorders keeps improving and changing over time with the goal of providing more accurate diagnosis and proper intervention. As guides for clinician, the formal Diagnostic Statistical Manual has categorical description of a variety of illnesses that are classified based on symptoms (Kite, Gullifer & Tyson, 2012). Recently, the new version of the DSM raises many controversies since it suggests merging Asperger syndrome into the category of autism disorder to reduce confusion and therefore eliminating their differentiation. Their common diagnosis would now include early delayed linguistic and cognitive development which is only the case for autism but not for Asperger. For some researchers this slight difference create
Through this diagnostic assessment process I have been afforded the opportunity to practice critical steps in discovering what my focus child knows or understands about addition and subtraction. Prior to this I did not understand the value in employing diagnostic techniques to uncover student thinking before teaching a concept. I would simply go in to the classroom teaching as though students had no experience with a concept. I now understand the importance of determining an appropriate starting point. The diagnostic assessment task, delivered through the Mathematics Online Test has helped me quantify and uncover how much of the addition and subtraction concept, my focus child had mastered and any misconceptions she holds. Understanding this has been vital for effective
The current diagnostic criteria for social anxiety disorder can be found in the DSM-5. The criteria are split into ten different diagnostic features (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The first diagnostic feature is one or more situations where fear or anxiety occurs due to possible negative evaluation received from others (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The second feature is the fear is of negative evaluation such as humiliation (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The third feature is that social settings continually cause this anxiety or fear (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). The fourth feature is the avoidance of social settings or large amounts of anxiety or fear when experiencing social settings (American
Giving myself time to read up on nursing experiences, attending more clinical practice labs, participating and watching these duties in the health care setting will allow me to develop a secure level of confidence the next time that this type of situation may occur. Staying in the room allowed me to experience the feeling of support while looking past social norms and how they are challenged. I met my personal values, and I believe that one should respect another person`s privacy. This understanding allowed me to be there to support the resident during her time of need. In the article `starting out` by Jane Schulz, a nursing student shares her experience of helping her colleague assist an elderly patient with daily care. Observing the compassion and care between nurse and patient from fundamental tasks, she took away a valued lesson of how our support and caring methods affect an individual. My relation to this story allowed me to reflect on the effects my care and supporting actions had on our patient.
