Identify images of older adults portrayed in the media. Are older adults generally characterized in a positive, negative, or mixed way in the media?

You completed your full head-to-toe assessment skills demonstration last week and now will document your results. Continue to document only the objective findings for this section without bias or explanation. Remember if you can’t feel something then it is “non palpable,” if you can’t hear something just state they were not heard such as no bowel sounds heard (unless you listened for the full five minutes which we wouldn’t want to do for our purposes – then you could document absent bowel sounds). Be descriptive if necessary but at the same time be brief.
The needs of the pediatric patient differ depending on age, as do the stages of development and the expected assessment findings for each stage. Examine the needs of a school-aged child between the ages of 5 and 12 years old and discuss the following: -Compare the physical assessments among school-aged children. Describe how you would modify assessment techniques to match the age and developmental stage of the child. -Choose a child between the ages of 5 and 12 years old. Identify the age of the child and describe the typical developmental stages of children that age. -Applying developmental theory based on Erickson, Piaget, or Kohlberg, explain how you would developmentally assess the child. Include how you would offer explanations during the assessment, strategies you would use to gain cooperation, and potential findings from the assessment.
-How do you judge Palin’s quote, as an effective strategy to oppose Democrats’ plans for health care reform
-How do you judge Palin’s quote, as an effective strategy to oppose Democrats’ plans for health care reform or unethical scaremongering? -“And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.” -Reflect on what informs your judgment: commitment to advance care planning, analysis of facts, and/or political party loyalties? -Is it right for nurses to endorse health reform legislation even if the legislation is not perfect? -Does this apply to the recently failed American Health Care Act?Give a detailed explanation..

Case Study 1: The Nurse and Cost Containment: Duty to Society Case Study Assignments Ramon Ortega, a 42-year old farm laborer with a history of hypertension, had been experiencing headaches on an almost daily basis for 2 to 3 weeks. Disturbed by the persistent and severe nature of the headaches, he visited the state-supported health clinic serving his rural community. Ms. Tracey Anderson, the family nurse practitioner and sole staff member of the clinic, listened as Mr. Ortega described his headaches. She then performed an initial examination, which revealed good general health with the exception of an elevated blood pressure of 190/108. Since Mr. Ortega had described some dizziness and visual disturbances during his headaches, Ms. Anderson also completed a neurological assessment. Everything seemed within normal limits except for Mr. Ortega’s peripheral vision. Ms. Anderson’s assessment demonstrated that he had some difficulty seeing objects in the visual field on his left side. Ms. Anderson realized this disturbance was probably a manifestation of his present headache in combination with his known visual deficit. Since no other abnormalities were demonstrated, the possibility of a more serious problem seemed remote, according to Ms. Anderson’s judgment. Yet Mr. Ortega was very distressed by his headaches. He asked the nurse what he could do to prevent the headaches or, at least, what could be done to lessen the pain he was experiencing. Could she be sure no other problem was causing the headaches? A few months ago, Ms. Anderson would not have hesitated to refer Mr. Ortega to University Medical Center, 100 miles away, for an exam by a physician and a neurologic evaluation of his headaches. She would have done this for no other reason than to relieve the patient of his worry and to confirm the absence of a more serious problem. She still believed that, on balance, the referral would be of some help. In recent weeks, however, the state agency that funds the rural health clinics had urged all health clinic personnel to be careful in referring patients for costly lab or evaluative testing and in incurring the added expense of clinic-sponsored transportation. There were decreased monies to support the personnel and services in rural health clinics because the agency had adopted a strict cost-containment program. In fact, the continued operation of the rural health clinics depended on how well the individual clinics contained costs, even though they provided greatly needed services to populations like the low-income farm community in which Mr. Ortega lives. Ms. Anderson had been cutting the operating costs of her clinic in every way she could, particularly in her judicious referral of patients to the University Medical Center. But she could not overlook the fact that Mr. Ortega was distressed by his headaches, and there was always the possibility, albeit remote, that he was presenting early signs of impending cerebrovascular disease, the effects of which could seriously affect him and his family. She was uncertain about what choice to make. 1. If Mr. Ortega was your patient, which action (s) would you take? 2. What factors would be important to you in making decisions about Mr. Ortega’s care?
