An experienced nurse Julie Thao was taking care of 16-yeas old Jasmine Gant who was about t give a birth. Thao is accused of making a mistake that had terrible and tragic result on the life of a pregnant teenage, unborn child, Gant’s family, health care, and Thao’s life. Thao mistakenly gave Gant an epidural anesthetic intravenously instead of an IV antibiotic for a strep infection. Within minutes of receiving the epidural IV, Gant suffered seizures and died. Her child, a boy, was delivered by emergency Caesarean section and survived. So what caused this tragedy to happen? According to investigation, Thao improperly removed the epidural bag from a locked storage system without authorization, she did not scan the bar code, which would have told
They were immediately moved back to Florida to their new foster house which was not she pleasant. Their new foster home was packed to the brim full of foster kids. The conditions were terrible, and their foster parents screaming lunatics. Ashley and Luke were shortly moved out of that so called home and back to South Carolina to live with Adele. Ashley was sent back to Florida by herself this time. In Ashley’s life time she has been in 14 different foster homes. As well as talking to 44 caseworkers in only 9 years. Ashley at the age of 13, was finally adopted by this lovely
In the article "Our Cell Phones, Ourselves," by Christine Rosen, she explains the dependency on cell phone use while highlighting unforeseen consequences that may occur with cellular device use. From allowing parents to track down their children, to having a casual conversation with a friend, cell phones offer people an unparalleled level of convenience. Furthermore, cell phone owners feel much safer knowing that in an emergency, help is just a phone call away. This convenience, however, does not come without any negative effects. Many cell phone owners become too engrossed in their phones and therefore ignore the physical world, an idea that Rosen refers to as "absent presence.” Also, people may use their phones as a way to prove they are
Ashley Rhodes-Courter was only three years old when she was separated from her mother. She spent the next nine years bouncing from one foster family to another. Her mother, Lorraine, was only twenty years old, and she was also too young to take responsibilities for her two children. However, Ashley grew up earning straight “A’s” in her classes; she won a world-wide Harry Potter essay contest in New York, as well as many others. She was born in South Carolina, and later was taken to her first foster family in Florida. The closest family member she was kept with was her step-brother Luke, who didn’t share the same father. Later on, when Ashley was eleven years old, she got a new step-sister, who did not share the same father as she and Luke.
Ashley took a long time to open up to people. Some people may think, why is it so hard for her to open up to others? All you had to do is start up a conversation. Why does she shut herself out of the real world? The reason why Ashley had such a hard time opening up to others was because she was abused. Her foster parents put it into her mind that she shouldn’t speak about what she was going through or else she would be punished. One time the Moss’s had some inspectors come by the house. She told the kids to put on a show to make it look like a great foster home, “ Surely Mrs. Moss would punish me if she thought I was ruining her little show” (Rhodes-Courter 92). Mrs. Moss chose to have the children sing, You are my Sunshine after she heard Ashley sing it to one of the younger kids to cheer her up. By doing so, she struck a chord in Ashley because that song was Ashley’s mother and her song. That song was the song that tied happiness to her relationship with her mother. That moment symbolized the loss of hope Ashley had to be taken out of the foster home. Another reason some people may not agree that Ashley Rhodes-Courter is successful is because, after living with her adoptive family for a few months, Ashley drugged her parents. No kid should drug their parents, it’s wrong. Even if the child is mad or finds it amusing they shouldn’t do it, because it’s not ethical. The reason why Ashley had the audacity to drug her parents was because she was peer pressured into doing so. She was friends with a girl named, Brooke. Brooke wasn’t a great influence on Ashley, Brooke was that child that liked to do the wrong things. She once had Ashley wait 30 minutes after a movie was finished so she could make out with her boyfriend, “When I dragged Brooke outside, Gay- who had been waiting for more than a half hour- was seething” (Rhodes-Courter 242). Brooke wanted to hang out with her boyfriend, but her
The first reason is that Vickie Sorensen dispensed the idea of taking the mother to the hospital after she had been warned how risky the situation was. The baby was about 33 weeks when the mother started having
After serving a subpoena for the investigation at Boone Hospital, I received approximately 108 pages of documents from Nancy Tune, RN on 01/07/2015. In these documents I found that Dr. John J. Seaberg, M.D. had observed on March 14, 2014 Chris Kaplan dissect the implant pocket for a breast augmentation using the electro cautery and use a #10 scalpel blade to make the skin incision for an abdominoplasty while Dr. Mike Kaplan was sitting beside the operating table with his hands folded on the patient watching his wife operate.

Ashley spends more time with her mom that is why Ashly did not take the money. On page one of the short story Ashes by, Susan Beth Pfeffer it states that “ I’d been seeing him Tuesdays for almost two years at that point. Mom who was still working on completing her degree took Tuesday and
“You mean you didn’t know? Laura, upon your arrival we tested a variety of things to make sure you were okay. One thing being tested was your upper and lower torso because most of the damage was caused there. We did an ultrasound to discover you are indeed pregnant.”
The Ashley Treatment has been, and still remains, controversial. A statement written by Ashley’s mom and dad stated that “Ashley had a normal birth, but her mental and motor faculties did not develop. Over the years, neurologists, geneticists, and other specialists conducted every known traditional and experimental test, but still could not determine a diagnosis or a cause. Doctor’s call her condition ‘static encephalopathy of unknown etiology’, which means an insult to the brain of unknown origin or cause, and one that will not improve.”
First, Ashley stole the money because she wanted her dad to love her more. “In the cold stillness of the night ,I could hear my father's car keening in the distance”you're one in a million” it cried”. Ashes thinks her dad is going to love here more.
