During every year everyone trembles in fear as a new and stronger strand of flu like sickness comes along. These viruses are met with vaccines that are swiftly made by the World Health Organization. The problem with the way that vaccines are made is, the World Health Organization not only makes the vaccines but also deems the vaccines safe. Since they are responsible for making and deeming the vaccines safe, mistakes can lead to mass deaths. For this reason there should be checks and balances where other agencies test the vaccines for potential threat of mental illness, dangerous ingredients, and death. This system is definitely due for an complete overhaul due to the lives of the families that are affected.
Lab test results show a positive anti-HCV and confirm that Chad has Hepatitis C. The nurse explains to Chad that Hepatitis is liver disease with inflammation of the cells of the liver. Chad states "I can't have Hepatitis. I had all three of the vaccinations before I started working as a paramedic."
East Hampshire Homes was a for-profit institution for a mentally retarded individual established by Jay and his wife, Leigh, a registered nurse. Leigh was the head of the mental homes and thus, was in charge of overseeing regulatory requirements as stipulated by the local, state and federal health welfare regulations. Leigh only identified Hepatitis B and blood-borne as the likely factors that East Hampshire Homes and nearby society may be exposed to, although the rate of exposure according to her was not at a risk state. Federal Occupation regulations mandated Leigh to develop a compliance policy that could safeguard the employees. On the other hand, OSHA authorized Leigh a discretion of developing a framework for classifying the tasks that
As you think about making sure your children are ready to head back to school, don’t forget to make sure they’re up-to-date on their immunizations. Getting you or your child vaccinated is as easy as coming to the Grace Health System Walk-In Clinic. No appointment is necessary.
Jay and Leigh Carlos own the East Hampshire Homes, which is a small two home business, so they can properly care for mild-to-moderate mentally retarded patients (Borden & Cooper, 2002). They hired over 100 personnel to assist with everyday operations and to accommodate 23 beds and an adult day-care program for their occupants. Since Leigh presided over the medical services of their organization, she was aware and concerned of the risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens which also included Hepatitis B. As the amount of residents continued to increase at East Hampshire Homes, she carefully reviewed through the federal, state, and local laws pertaining to the health and safety regulations to ensure that her organization was in compliance
Soon after birth, many children across the U.S., have to be vaccinated. These vaccinations are said to cause autism and other mental disorders for the children later on
Jay Carlos and his wife Leigh were approached with a new business venture. They were asked to open a home for the mentally retarded. In the past, mentally retarded people were viewed in a single category, from minor to severely retarded, they could not live a normal daily life. If their families could not care for them, they were forced into large state hospitals where the care was less than stellar. Jay and Leigh were always looking for a new investment. They were through extensive research and decided this would be a great opportunity (Lester & Parnell, 2006, Case C).
I believe the biggest dilemma for organizations that have serious regulatory issues is the potential that these regulations will affect profit or make these businesses unappealing for new entries. In Borden and Cooper’s 2002 case research journal, Jay mentioned the average industry yearly turnover rate was 35-40% and Hepatitis B vaccinations cost $180 per person. Taking this into account, 35-40% of their employees per year will need to be replaced and will require a $180 vaccination to conform to OSHA requirements. This would be a very costly regulation that would affect the company's ability to make a profit and stay in business. I also believe this regulation and others like it could affect entrepreneurs considerations to open new businesses
Increasing appropriate vaccination program has been initiated focused implementation of health care system and community services. Effectiveness of increasing vaccination rate in targeted population has been proven by research and data. Recommendation includes the health care providers to offer educations and reminders for clients. Additional strategies of implementation include accessibility of vaccination such as reduced cost and providing expanded access in clinics. Home visit can also be offered for immobilized clients. Standing order is another strategy that has been recommended in this program. Under the state law and approved protocol by the institution, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals can administer vaccination
months within the first 24 months of life, and 1 in 4 children were overdue for at least 4 vaccinations. These outcomes suggest that although immunization programs have effectively increased immunization coverage at childcare or school entry, children less than 24 months who are the most susceptible to vaccine avoidable diseases are still
The study was published in the Heart British Medical Journal and took place in Sydney Australia between 2008 and 2010. The study attempted to look at the relation between Influenza and whether or not it was a precipitant to acute myocardial infarction. Potential population health benefited was identified as the vaccine effectiveness rate was 45% for patients at risk for ischemic heart disease (MacIntyre, 2015). This shows that vaccination efforts could possess secondary benefits beyond the primary purpose of vaccination.
According to World Health Organization (WHO) immunization is proven to be effective in controlling and eliminating life-threatening infectious diseases. It is estimated to avert between two and three million deaths worldwide annually. Health protection Agency (HPA) claims that after clean water, immunization is the most effective public health intervention in the world for saving lives and promoting good health (Hill & Cox, 2013). Despite of all these advantages to immunization decision making to immunize children is not an easy process for some parents. Immunization and controversies surrounding it have been causing many health issues in the society. There has been many ongoing controversy surrounding measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and their relationship to Autism Spectrum Disorder. According to Center of Disease Center Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that is caused by differences in how the brain functions. People with autism spectrum disorder have difficulty with social interaction and they may
The city’s response, although slow, waited for the county and the public health officials to give them instructions. After about six months, and tourists getting sick, and feedback that the release of a Hepatitis A outbreak was lackluster, at best, did the city and county meet to begin the collaborations that are still taking place today. Since then, there have been press conferences, and releases, funding for the placement of portable handwashing sinks in and around the city, the reopening of park and other public bathrooms for hygiene purposes, street cleaning with bleach, an improved sanitation protocol which includes regular sewage pick-up and homeless sweeps, more frequent and sustained awareness, emails to all city employees, and regular
The research is not ethical if the main purpose is to only provide knowledge of the disease. The ethnicity of the research should be related to a cure of the hepatitis strain and as a prophylactic treatment in case someone else is exposed to the infection. There is no ethical significance that the children often developed immunity. The problem would not have developed if the children were properly taken care of by the facility. The facility should be held accountable for the outbreak of the infection. If the experiment did not provide the desired results, the facility should have stopped all testing. Furthermore, the protection of the children was not the focal point of the facility.
Initial research conducted has indicated that there has been a significant decline in the frozen fruit trend following the 2014 hepatitis A scare. Publics no longer consider Nanna’s frozen fruit products safe to consume. Secondary research has confirmed this is greatly due to the processing and packaging of these products offshore and predominantly in China. Consumers have made a rapid shift to competitor’s products which are processed either in Australia or countries outside of China (ABC, 2015). The market overall has witnessed a significant decline with the frozen fruit trend following the hepatitis A scare. With the immediate pressure of the hepatitis A issue resolved, it is imperative to determine what the publics’ current perception of
