    healthcare providers were saying. In other words, there were differences in perception and viewpoint between the healthcare providers and patients. The communication barrier between these healthcare providers and this patient was preventable if these healthcare providers explained clearly to this patient that he would be evacuated to another hospital by the helicopter. Identity There are many instances throughout the crisis where individuals had lost or were losing their identity. For instance, Dr. Anna Pou, who specialized in otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat), and two nurses from the hospital’s intensive care unit, Cheri Landry and Lori Budo, were arrested on Monday, July 17, 2006 because they were suspected for euthanatizing at least four patients of LifeCare using lethal doses of morphine and other painkillers. When special agent Virginia Rider arrived at Pou’s house to arrest her, Pou was told to take off any jewelry and bring only her driver’s license. Rider watched while Pou was getting her driver’s license from her purse (Fink, 2013, p. 339-340). This scene clearly indicates that she is losing her personal identity because she didn’t have the privilege to bring anything she wants with her. In other words, her actions were being controlled. Besides losing her personal identity, she also lost her professional identity because she needed to cancel all of her surgeries that were scheduled next week and transfer her patients to another doctor. In other words, she…

    The medical ethics case on Dr. Anna Pou questions the ethics itself in several forms and different issues. The issue is that the medical departments, nationally or locally, should always provide care for patients no matter the type of emergency or disaster. It doesn’t matter the amount of laws and regulations they pass or provide to help medical institutions work easily and efficiently, which should help provide patients with medical care they rightfully deserve and need.

    I thought that knowing the definition would help find my character, but I feel even more perplexed. They say that you are your own worst critic, and I guess they are actually right. I don 't feel like I fit my name. I don 't resemble the picture of grace or favor. I know for a fact that my name and personality have no correlation, mostly due to the fact that I trip on stairs, wake up looking like I’m half dead, and can’t text and walk at the same time. Needless to say, my identity and name comes…

    However, one novel in particular that sparked world literature fame was Anna Karenina (1877). Anna Karenina was and still is a masterpiece because it incorporates all the elements of humanity such as lustful passions, pride, conflict, marriage, and death. An in depth analysis of Anna Karenina is that it was a heavily controversial novel. Convoluted plot lines, character development, relationships, and social commentary, gave meaning to this novel. The concept of writing this novel came to…

    In the 1980's we had cocaine. It was pure, cheap and plentiful. Now, due to Ronald Reagans infamous "war on drugs" campaign (among many other things), cocaine as we once knew, is long gone. However, addiction is a subtle beast. It's resilient in all its ways and finds new methods to persevere. In the modern age, we have our addictions, although it is not so much to cocaine. Instead, it's technology. Just look around anywhere in the world and you'll come across someone with their phone glued to…

    I found the ending of Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell, to be a satisfying ending. It seemed to wrap things up nicely. After Beauty is injured and nearly overworked to death, he ends up in a beautiful home surrounded by people who care for him for the rest of his life. Although it is rather bittersweet, as the last line reminds us of everything Beauty has lost: “often, before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple trees” (49.22).…
