Kelly a. Wagner of Connecticut Law Tribune has written in an article entitled Good Samaritan Statute Under Scrutiny that a patient dies because of the Turkey sandwich given to her while she was on board with the paramedics while going to the hospital. It was found out that the patient has no teeth or salivary glands, which led to the choking of the patient. It was argued that the paramedics should have known the medical condition of the patient. The situation then could have been avoided. The suspect's attorney argued that the employees do not have any civil liability because the Good Samaritan Law covered what happened. The law, which was passed in 1963, offers immunity from liability for dentists, school personnel, police, firemen, EMTs and others who provide emergency medical assistance or first aid during a crisis. (Wagner, 2002, Good Samaritan Statute Under Scrutiny, par. 14). The final verdict…

Business Plan: Good Samaritan Hospital, Suffern
The Good Samaritan Hospital, located at 255 Lafayette Avenue - Suffern, NY, offers a wide range of care services to inhabitants of Orange and ockland Counties in New York and Northern Berger County, NJ (Bon Secours Charity Health System, 2014). However, the facility lacks special language services, which has been a major problem, given the changing demographics of Suffern area, particularly the increasing population of LEP (limited English-proficient) individuals. This has proven to be a substantial barrier to care, and the facility now seeks funding for the construction of a language access services call center to complement the cultural and language competency training program currently underway.
The Good Samaritan Hospital was founded in 1902, after Ida Bay yan, a Good Samaritan, donated a building at the East Park Place to the St. Elizabeth Sisters of Charity to enable them build a health…

Go and study'" (2000, 733). These observations suggest that while it may be possible to interpret the Parable of the Good Samaritan in different ways, there can be no misunderstanding the basic message that is being communicated.
Like the Lukan and Markan versions, Leviticus 19:18 also requires everyone to not only refrain from acts that would harm others, but to come to their assistance when they are in need, but this is not the only other biblical reference that contains this important guidance. According to Anderson, "Mark's version of this same pericope leaves out the parable of the Good Samaritan but makes the same point, in even more emphatic terms, as here it is Jesus himself who gives the proper answer. 'There is no other commandment greater than these,' to love God and neighbor, Jesus says (Mark 12:31)" (2004, 170).

Another important characteristic of the passersby is that the first two include high ranking members of the Jewish community. If the person lying by the side of the road were beaten and were truly dead, the Pharisee and the Levite would have been forbidden to touch the body (Gourges, 883). This allowed Jesus to make the point that the upper class would not break tradition, even if it meant a man's life. The commandment given by Jesus in the end was a double commandment, typical of Rabbinical teachings of the time (Fitsmeyer, p. 879). Jesus commands that the audience be good their neighbor and to love their enemy. This further helps to further the argument that the parable was a cry out against the established norms of the time. By using these references, Jesus extends the use of the word "neighbor" beyond the context found in other places in the…

This means that rescue personnel such as police, fire fighters or emergency medical technicians can ask someone else to help extricate someone from a hole, and the person helping will not be liable. It does not mean that a mining company is automatically exempt from liability if they have a mining accident, but when assisting others, gross negligence or willful misconduct must be present for them to be sued.

It also exempts those who train people to render emergency aid, such as CPR or the use of a defibrillator. Finally, it protects people who hold medical licenses in other states if they render aid to someone in Virginia.
In summary, the law protects anyone renders emergency medical or other life-saving or life-extending aid if they had reason to believe they were competent to do so, including people such as bystanders who have CPR training as well as those who hold some kind medical license. Such a person has to act in a grossly negligent or willfully incompetent way in order to be sued for their efforts to help.

ACTING OUT OF A SENSE OF ONE’S DUTY CAN BE WRONG 3
Acting Out of a Sense of One’s Duty Can Be Wrong
An example to illustrate how one can be acting out of duty and they end up causing more harm than if they had not done anything is in assisting accident victims. When an accident occurs, people will rush and they will attempt to assist the injured persons, however, there are situations where the good samaritan assisting the injured could cause more harm than if they had left the victims and waited for paramedics or firefighters. If an accident victim is pulled or moved from the car without proper care being taken, it could result in the victim suffering more and increasing their injuries. Although the act of kindness being shown by assisting the victim is out of duty the victim could become paralyzed, suffer severe bleeding, or…

School Nurse Conflict Mission
Mary Jackson did exactly what a professional RN should do -- she tended to the injured children that were her responsibility. It happened that her efforts spilled over into a hospital emergency room, which technically she did not have the legal right to practice in. But still, she acted according to the values that she was trained in and moreover, as a professional healthcare employee of a school, she knew these children and her instincts were to boldly provide triage and other emergency procedures to help the children. In addition, Mary is not just an RN, she is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in pediatrics, and her skills and training are well beyond those of an RN. Hence, she deserves respect and she deserves the benefit of the doubt when she acts in behalf of the children she is contractually and morally obliged to protect and care…

Managing Complaints: Improving Service in a 15-Bed Emergency Room
As chief operating officer, you are responsible for a 15-bed Emergency Room (ER), which has received many complaints within the last year regarding inadequate patient care, poor ER management, long wait times, and patients being sent away due to lack of space, staff or physicians to provide appropriate care.
Diagnoses: Root Causes of Clinic Complaints
The complaints at hand in viewing the lack of success in the ER at hand can be largely traced back to poor internal management within the ER. Employees operating within the ER have long been confused about the standards and protocols that the hospital has implemented which poorly effects the running of the ER from the time a new patient enters the facility. Many of the complaints lodged toward the ER make mention of an incompetent and insensitive ER staff who have led patients…

Marketing in Health Care: The Good Samaritan Society
The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society is a non-profit health care organization with 238 nursing and healthcare facilities throughout the United States. They do not use a specific corporate pricing strategy. Instead, individual facilities across the United States set the prices for their service using a Cost-Plus Pricing strategy combined with a Price to Market approach.
The Cost-Plus strategy is "simply building price from the cost up, usually on a percentage basis" (AMA par 1). The Good Samaritan Society set budget goals for each facility considering local expense and revenue projections. The expense projections are based on market costs of items needed in the business. "The greatest expense in a health care facility is staffing." (Gebo). State and local governments require specific staffing levels for facility licensure. The Federal Government also sets staffing requirements if the facility receives Federal revenue from the…

Another reason for the seemingly self-centered behavior is fear of embarrassment: what if I rush to help a person in need but I am promptly made a fool of by the criminal? Furthermore, many people assume that someone else will do something; we basically don't feel responsible in situations like these, just as George, Jerry, Elaine, and Kramer felt not the slightest inkling of social responsibility.
In fact, the entire sitcom is based on the fact that many people feel a complete lack of social responsibility: we are selfish, self-centered individuals. If helping someone isn't in our best interest, or if we won't get anything out of it personally, chances are we will stand back and watch. We are voyeuristic, insular, and eerily similar to George, Jerry, Elaine, and Kramer. The characters' arrest under the "Good Samaritan" law leads to a trail in which their moral characters are scrutinized in…
They are the people who are not media-savvy enough to have their name recognized but should still be considered good citizens. Many of the people who are in the public eye and recognized as good citizens deserve their accolades. However, a good citizen cannot be defined solely by a person's image or level of popularity.
Interestingly, one classmate said that good citizens feel a sense of personal gratification when they help someone. Deriving personal gratification from helping someone is admirable, but an impossible standard to measure. Plus, even the most stalwart good citizen grows frustrated with local bureaucracies and derives little personal gratification from some of their work. Deriving personal gratification from helping others does, however, suggest that the good citizen must act out of a sense of duty and not out of a desire for fame or fortune.
Classmates implied that being a good citizen is important for creating…

Moreover, Malachi Martin describes the theology as "a freeing from political oppression, economic want, and misery here on earth. More specifically still…a freeing from political domination by the capitalism of the United States."
Furthermore, though it grew out of the unrest in Latin America "with its political domination by strong-arm leaders and monopolistic oligarchies," viewed by members of the Church as a direct result of American capitalism, the events in Latin America were preceded by a much more basic historical development -- the "rights of man" extrapolated from the French Revolution and re-coined as the "rights of the working man."

Bound by Harry Mazer
Snowbound is a book written by Harry Mazer. It was inscribed in the early 1970s, precisely around 1973. The book traces to the genre of fiction, but it also translates to adventure and means of survival. The book was written to address to young adults as its main audience.
The main characters that Mazer represented in the book were Tony and Cindy. Tony is a hardheaded teenager practicing uncouth behavior. He is emotionally disturbed throughput the course of the story due to the restrictions posed onto him by his parents. Cindy is also characterized by bad habitual traits. She is an easygoing reckless girl, easily swayed by the wind to fit into people with similar traits as hers. Other characters represented are Tony's parents, Tony's uncle and a lady who acts as a Good Samaritan at the scene of the accident.

Experiencing Art in Person: A review of Godspell
For my 'Experiencing Art in Person' project, I elected to watch a performance of the musical theater production Godspell at the Production Studio on April 27th at 7:30pm, performed by an ensemble cast. My goal in watching this production was to learn about a play that had such a seismic impact upon American theater. I am an international student. I come from Saudi Arabia and was unfamiliar with the show, but I had heard many of my American friends talk about how they had performed or seen the play in school and church productions. The fact that there is no corresponding play in my own culture, with my own religion made the play especially intriguing to me.

Initially, there were rampant incidences of the arrest and prosecution of the volunteers who called the law enforcement and the first responders to the scene since they too were often found to have used the drugs. The first responders were also not allowed to administer opioid antagonist at the scene to the person suffering obvious signs of overdose on the opioids hence the death rates from the overdose kept increasing even amidst the knowledge that…

She is the Good Samaritan whose attention to the victim robbed and abandoned by the roadside earned him a place in biblical history. Amy does not falter when called to aid and abet a fugitive slave, or touch a mutilated black woman, or bring new black life into the world. She drags Sethe back to life, using spider-webs to ease her back, massaging circulation into her damaged feet, and delivering her baby. Proactive Christianity provides the tension that undercuts passive emulation and dissimulation. Amy's religion is eminently present, representing her sense of urgency and agency. Sethe owes her life to Amy, who is irreversibly linked to black life, both through her own suffering and through her surname, Denver, which the grateful Sethe gives to her newborn daughter.

The book of Luke is largely regarded as one of the synoptic gospels that provide a different account of the ministry of Jesus Christ. The author of the book not only provides a different account of the events and life of Jesus Christ but also adopted a biblical approach to his writing instead of a classical style. This book has attracted considerable attention among biblical scholars because of its different approach and account of the life of Jesus. The considerable attention is also attributed to the fact that approximately 40% of the content of this book is not found in the other synoptic gospels. Some of the differences in this book as compared to the other synoptic gospels include the stories of the life and times of Jesus, the Good Samaritan, and the Prodigal Son.

It was held at the Penn State Schuylkill, which is a campus that is part of Pennsylvania State University in Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania.

Specifically, the hearing was focused on the serious problem in the community of heroin and opioid addiction, and what can be done about it.

Benedictine Values as Compared to Ethics Principles
Many different sets of ethics are used throughout the world and within different organizations, but there are a few foundational principles upon which most of those are based. Early in the Christian era St. Benedict (480-547 AD) wrote a collection of values that people should live by. There were a great number of these, but the University of Mary selected six of these that apply most specifically to the students who matriculate there -- community, hospitality, moderation, prayer, respect for persons, and service (University of St. Mary, 2011). Besides these moral edicts from the church are some basic principles by which most systems are built today. They include the four foundational principles of ethics and the two divisions of virtue ethics. The purpose of this paper is to outline all of these concepts, then to compare and contrast the Benedictine values to the…

Moreover, Smith believes that in the real world of American society today, things "…actually turn out quite opposite from the initial statement." In other words, Smith notes that many "criminals" sit in jails and prisons, incarcerated while guilty men who had good lawyers are "free to roam the streets" (Smith, 2010, p. 1). Of course that is a generalization by Smith, but it does seem that every couple weeks new DNA testing shows that the African-American man who was sitting on death row did not do the killing after all, and he is released after 12 years rotting in prison.
Another point Smith makes is that people work hard, sometimes taking two jobs, to make ends meet, and on the other side of town a white collar criminal works a couple hours a week and makes thousands of dollars on some scheme. So, notwithstanding what Pojman posits about good being…

This passage depicts Jesus' famous temptation by the devil in the wilderness. Jesus fasts for forty days and forty nights during his trial. This passage is cited by Christians as proof of the fact that humans have free will. Jesus, despite being the Son of Man, is given a choice as to whether he is allowed to choose salvation or damnation, ruling over the kingdom of earth or heaven. Jesus chooses the path of God, of course, and is not deterred by the temptation to turn from the path of righteousness. He states that he needs spiritual rather than human bread for his primary sustenance.
This passage is a metaphor for the ability of the human mind to withstand suffering. Humans cannot live on 'bread alone' in the sense that they need more to 'feed' themselves than earthly food. Food merely nourishes the body, while spiritual…
With St. Paul, Luke traveled to several different destinations including Samothrace and Philippi -- where he appears to have lingered to guide the Church. The duo then reunite in Troas and Luke is with St. Paul during the latter's stay in a oman jail. As Paul says: "Only Luke is with me" (2 Timothy 4:11).
Exactly what Luke did with Paul during this time is debated: "St. Jerome thinks it is most likely that St. Luke is 'the brother, whose praise is in the gospel through all the churches' (2 Corinthians 8:18), and that he was one of the bearers of the letter to Corinth" (Knight, 2011).
Luke also brings special awareness to the importance of mercy and forgiveness, with the parable of the Prodigal Son and the tale of the woman whose sins were forgiven because she bathed Christ's feet in her tears.

"What is the role of Congress in policy making process"?
Policy is a plan to identify goal or possible course of actions with administrative or management tools to accomplish these goals. n the other hand, policy is the authoritative decision made by the U.S. executive, legislative, judicial branch of government to influence the decision of others. Government is a key player in decision-making process and congress plays important roles in decision-making . In the United States, both House of Representatives and House of Senate fulfill the congressional policy responsibilities, and congress plays important role in health policy, which includes obesity prevention measures or health insurance program. Congress is an important arm of government that makes law. Important strategy that congress uses to make policy preference is by passing a bill into law. Typically, the congress could make a decision to pass or not to the policy of the…

Ethical esponsibility of Corporate America
Many organizations strive to increase their profit margins by doing everything possible (including unethical practices) to increase their revenues. Nevertheless, the past three decades have seen some organizations embracing CS (Corporate Social responsibility). This idea has become significantly important to almost every organization that seeks to increase revenues. Corporate social responsibility is also referred to as community responsibility, stewardship, corporate sustainability, corporate responsibility, accountability and corporate ethics among others. In essence, CS enable organizations to bring in people and the environment into their decisions, strategies and plans (Anyango Ooko, 2014).
In this paper, the use of the term corporate social responsibility will mean a set of actions by enterprises that are geared towards meeting the legal, ethical, economic, and discretional responsibilities that the stakeholders expect them to fulfill. They should undertake the economic obligations of producing profits, and meeting the consumption requirements of the people;…

The existence of human suffering poses a unique theological problem. If God is omniscient, omnipotent, and all-loving, then why does suffering exist? Indeed, this difficulty is confronted in scripture itself: perhaps the most important look into the problem of suffering comes in the Old Testament story of Job. Mainstream Christianity continues to have a variety of ways of approaching this theological question, although historically Christians had a much broader spectrum of responses. For example, today's mainstream Christianity is a result of the establishment of orthodoxy in the face of Gnostic Christians, who used the existence of suffering as a way of questioning whether God was indeed omnipotent or all-loving. Gnosticism instead posits a "demiurge" or "alien god" that created this world and its suffering without being omnipotent or good. ut the oldest mainstream form of Christian orthodoxy today -- represented by the Roman Catholic faith…

While it is a felony to flee the scene of an accident, a police office is ethically bound to report the issue if he himself is in such an accident. The same is with drunken and disorderly behavior or destruction of property. In "Choirboys" the police officers would congregate in a park after hours to engage in drunkenness, disorderly behavior and sexual orgies with women. And this park was supposed to be out of bounds and closed to the public after hours.
The introduction in this essay already alluded to the "blue wall of silence" that accompanies every police organization. This is an exclusive fraternity and officers are required to look after and out for each other. In fact, beat cops see themselves as removed from the detective squad, whom they refer to as suits. Certainly, most police hate the Internal affairs squad, though they were once beat cops…

In so doing the commodity market and global trade developed a new history for chocolate, one that makes it a very fitting liberator in the small French village depicted in the film.
This new history is a story of sweetness and power, that is, the power to define what constitutes refined taste (Mintz 1985). All these accounts relate how Spanish nuns or monks were the first to domesticate a bitter, cold drink judged to be "more fit for pigs than for human consumption" (compare Constant 1988, 29; Robert 1990, 20). Chocolate was supposedly tamed by adding heat, sugar, and more refined flavorings such as vanilla, cinnamon, amber, and musk. This triumphant transformation heralded the introduction of chocolate to European nobles at court. "Hot, flavored, sweet; virtually nothing recalled its savage origins and, throughout the seventeenth century, the brown ambrosia would attract new followers" (Schiaffino and Cluizel 1988, 18).…

Secondly, in my opinion, it is irrational and insensitive for the rich to continue spending billions of dollars on luxuries as millions across the world continue to suffer. For instance, why would an individual own several luxury cars while another person cannot even afford to settle his or her medical bills? Similarly, why should an individual have billions of dollars lying idle in the bank as scores of people across the world die of hunger? In my opinion, luxury items are insignificant when compared to the basic needs of others including but not limited to food, shelter, and medical attention. In the final analysis, it does not make much sense for one to live in luxury as others wallow in poverty. e therefore have an obligation to give up some of our luxuries so as to help the less fortunate amongst us.

Christianity claims to be unique and this work in writing will demonstrate the uniqueness in research and show why other religions could not be considered as the way to salvation. The work of J. Hampton Keathley, III discusses the uniqueness of Christianity and states that Christianity is unique "because it stems from the uniqueness of Jesus Christ, the greatest man who ever lived. In Jesus, we have One who has virtually changed every aspect of human life, but sadly, most people are completely oblivious to the reality of how He has so completely impacted the world." (Keathley, 2012)
The uniqueness of Jesus Christ is examined by Keathley from the view of the uniqueness of Christianity as a religion and states of Christianity that "alone of all the beliefs of mankind, be they religious or political or philosophical…" Christianity is the one religion founded upon the bases of "historical acts and…

The objective of this work is to answer whether Internet service providers have a responsibility to regulate the content that is available on the World Wide Web? This work will additionally answer as to whether the presence and ease of availability of pornography to the general public a tribute to free speech and a reflection of social maturity or an example of the potential damage that unregulated markets and the hegemony of technology have reaped upon society?
The Internet is such that allows consumers, businesses, and industry, alike to "do many new things in unique and efficient ways."

In Ariel Dorman's play Death and the Maiden, Paulina has obviously been deeply traumatized by her experience of being tortured by former military regime of this Latin American country, and is definitely not prepared to peacefully coexist with those who committed atrocities against their own people. Although the country is never named specifically, anyone familiar with the history would recognize it as Chile, which had been ruled by General Augusto Pinochet in 1973-90. Nowhere does the play mentioned that Pinochet was installed in a coup by the Central Intelligence Agency and supported by the United States government, or that the U.S. has continued to lie about these events up to the present. As part of the transition to democracy, also brokered by the U.S. government, the members of the former regime received an amnesty so that they could never be prosecuted.

As Cuccinelli and Getchell point out that, "The police power is the antithesis of limited, enumerated powers. Given the breadth of that power, it cannot be exercised by the federal government without overwhelming the limitations intended by the Constitution's scheme of enumerated powers" (2011, p. 293).
The argument can be made that the individual mandate provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are for the greater good by making individual consumers accountable for their own healthcare. Even though the purpose of the PPACA may be laudable, the research was consistent in showing that many constitutional scholars believe that the individual mandate oversteps the authority of the U.S. Congress under the Commerce Clause. Although the PPACA is currently the law of the land, it is reasonable to conclude that it will continue to face legal challenges from the attorneys general of the several states due to its individual…

Ethical and Legal Issues Depicted in the Movie, John Q?
From beginning to end, "John Q" is a movie full of moral and ethical quandaries. It offers viewers a clear glimpse at private and public entities' obligation to engage in ethically-right routine decision-making for their respective communities. John lacked the required health insurance to cover his son's cardiac surgery expenses. The Hope Memorial Hospital, electing not to play a "Good Samaritan," does not agree to perform the surgery without being assured payment. Thus, John is faced with the moral quandary of accepting fate and readying for the funeral of his son (as suggested by Rebecca Payne, the Hospital's administrator), or somehow procuring the money needed. Given the urgency of his son's case, the second option is rather daunting. Ultimately, John ends up holding emergency room patients and staff members hostage, to ensure his son is catered to (angura, 2011).

hose who oppose gun rights argue that society suffers from violence already, and arming more people will only make the problem worse. However, this argument is misguided. As explained above, deterrence alone helps to reduce violent crime. Furthermore, gun safety classes and permitting requirements go a long way toward ensuring that only mentally sound, educated, and qualified individuals may possess a gun. Waiting periods are mandatory in many states, and serve to reduce the opportunity for would-be shooters to behave impulsively. Guns don't kill people; people kill people.
Finally, recent public shootings provide another argument for the right of average citizens to own and carry guns. While this line of thinking may be counter-intuitive, it makes sense to note that if, for example, teachers or staff at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado had be carrying handguns on that fateful day in 1999, they may have been able to prevent…

While this line of thinking may be counter-intuitive, it makes sense to note that if, for example, teachers or staff at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado had be carrying handguns on that fateful day in 1999, they may have been able to prevent the needless deaths of so many young people. In a world where anyone can get guns if they want to, making guns illegal would only make the problem worse by preventing innocent bystanders from defending themselves and interfering on behalf of others. In a public place, if a terrorist begins to fire randomly into a crowd, it would be useful for a gun-owning good Samaritan to shoot back and end the incident.
Many arguments exist for the ongoing acceptance of the personal freedoms guaranteed to Americans through the Bill of Rights. Owning handguns is an expression of personal liberty, and helps people defend themselves against a tyrannical government, a corrupt official, a criminal, or a mass shooter. This is an essential right for citizens in a Democratic society, and those who fear irresponsible gun behavior should channel their concern into increasing enforcement of existing laws and permitting requirements.
Here, criminal law is of course preemptive in all jurisdictions, yet enforcement is restricted to agencies dedicated to law enforcement investigation and apprehension of individuals.
In spite of billions of dollars spent on homeland security, in the aftermath of Katrina pediatric-specific preparations continue to lag behind.

Yet, before one can understand Johnson's call for a taking back of the feminine Christ, one must first understand how the feminine Christ was lost.
The starting point is with the ministries of Christ and to the point of his resurrection. This short period of time is the only time that Jesus himself was in charge of defining his philosophy, although even he recognized the fact that history would define him and not himself.
Jesus' ministry involved numerous acts of kindness, preaching and forgiveness. Many of these acts are seen as miracles, or "Signs" as the Gospel of John refers to them. These included exorcisms, walking on water, turning water into wine, and raising people from the dead. According to the Gospel of John, Jesus' ministry lasted for a period of three years. The major event of the ministry phase was the giving of the Sermon on the Mount, where…

Traditionally, researchers in various fields of study have generally limited investigations to their area of expertise. Social scientists attend to prescribed areas such as memory, deviance, and microeconomics. In addition, natural scientists restrict their focal points to phenomena like DNA, gravity, and erosion. This practice of detached exploration, which initially proved productive, is gradually giving way to interdisciplinary endeavors as new and overwhelming evidence indicates that many domains are profoundly interconnected. Although some conventional sociologists steadfastly resist such infiltration, the field is not immune to this growing interdisciplinary movement.
Sociobiology, as the name indicates, is the synthesis of sociology and biology. It is the logical bridge 'between the natural sciences on the one side and social sciences and humanities on the other' (Wilson, 5). Stated differently, it applies the principles of biology to the study of social behavior in both human and non-human populations. More precisely, sociobiology employs evolutionary theories…

CONGESTION ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS
Prolonged or increased waiting time for patients at the Emergency Department lead to an increase in both morbidity and mortality among critically ill adult patients admitted for inpatient beds. The gathering of ED records of the St. Margaret Mary Healthcare Centers of Dyer, Indiana, aimed at developing a report on overcrowding, identified the main causes as the lack of available inpatient beds and the lack of nurses to care for patients. Long-term solutions are identified and suggested.
ackground/Significance -- Overcrowding at the ED occurs primarily because of overwhelmed ED manpower and sheer physical incapability because of the massive number of patients requiring or receiving care. Overcrowding, lack of ED staff and the delay of transfer to assigned bed, the lack of physical beds and un-timely discharges lead to increased boarding times at the ED.

Criminals of the Bible examines and studies the subject matter of the different criminal acts committed by different persons in the Bible. These criminal acts in the book are considered as a measure against Mosaic Law, a law that was common for an extended period of time within which the Bible was written. In addition, Mark Jones, the author, takes into consideration peer studied assessments of criminal law theorists both in the 21st century and even before. The Bible is such an intriguing and interesting book. It consists of numerous stories from the creation story to the end of the world that can be fascinating and keep one enthralled with the different characters. The book offers a societal, legal and political context of the criminal acts that took place at that point in time (Jones and Johnstone, 2012).…

A term tossed around too commonly, “solidarity” means pragmatic pulling together against seemingly insurmountable odds. The “little miracles” the Catholic Relief Services video refers to mentions the “grace of God” as the force that binds human beings and communities together. Solidarity is the result of the grace of God working through committed people who recognize that there are no divisions between people, tribes, or countries. All human beings are part of a collective body, and we have responsibilities to one another. Solidarity is too often used to create segregated groups, as when referring to “ethnic solidarity,” (Pagnucco & Gichure, 2014, p. 161). The Catholic Social Teaching CST) perspective shows that there is only one type of solidarity: the global unity among disparate people. Solidarity is also not a static state of affairs resulting in artificial designations of identity. Rather, solidarity is about action and relationship. Pagnucco & Gichure (2014) define…
communication and best practices or standards are very simple yet when not addressed may cause complex problems that require serious modification. Quality improvement within certain aspects of the medical professional landscape may be extremely beneficial to the solving of these problems.

Food had always been an underlying, but important part of her, and there she was sharing the body and blood of Christ.

This could have been caused by her acquired distrust of theological dogmas. However, it seems that the sharing…

In the field of healthcare, organizations are required to promote themselves in the same manner as any other corporation mainly due to the fact that many healthcare organizations are dependent on donations, promotion strategies thus help an organizations stay connected with major charities and also give financiers a reason to give money to a particular organization. Our organization's promotion strategies include sending complimentary gifts to various important people including some charity originations. This helps in staying focused and maintaining a certain standard of performance because donations are certainly not forthcoming when your healthcare organization doesn't do anything to market itself well.
Promotion strategies can range from internal activities such as those involving the employees and patients and external that includes everything from marketing techniques to advertising of sorts.

Crime and Punishment
Ours is an extremely violent kind of world where even the most common type of folk can find themselves faced with types of unspeakable horrors and criminal activity through little or no intention of their own. In American literature, a common theme is the concept of the freedom of choice and how a person's choices come to affect not only themselves, but all of the people around them. Some of the choices that people, and their literary counterparts, make lead them to crime. It is the purpose of the American justice system to ensure that crimes are punished. However, in literature, that is not always the case. Crime in the American judicial sense is activity which violates the laws of the United States of America.

One of the major concepts discussed in the Bible is Johnannie symbolism. This is when various ideas are used to highlight Christ's messages to everyone. These actions are built upon, by illustrating those concepts God finds to be most important, in the way humankind should live. The story of the Samaritan woman is the classic examples of this. It offers insights of John's interpretations of various events and how they are connected with each other. To fully understand what is happening requires carefully examining this example and its relationship with marriage / the original order of creation. Together, these different elements will illustrate the significance of key Johnannie ideas in conjunction with theological doctrine. (Muropa, 2012)
The story of the Samaritan woman is linked with an experience she had with Christ. This occurred, when he was resting at a well alone and his disciples went out to find…

The outcomes of the Samaritan Hospital bedside handover plan is explicitly linked to the overall strategic outlook of the hospital. In order for this attempt to be beneficial it must prove to be economic, effective and efficient. These three qualities reveal the ability to successfully implement an idea and allow it to materialize and flourish.
Specifically, there are certain facts and figures that can be recorded and noted to highlight the progress of the plan and allow the leadership to successfully evaluate the effort and direct further resources to guide those efforts to their necessary spots. In order to accomplish this, a data collection tool must be introduced to gather information to model. For this plan there will be three sources of data to be collected. The first is a survey that is to be conducted by patients who have been released from the…

ole of Women in Paul's Church
The role of women in church as laid out by the Apostle Paul has always been controversial. There are those who say that Paul hated women and created restrictive, secondary roles for them in the church because of it. Others, however, maintain that Paul loved women and that the roles he created for them in the Christian church were very liberating for them. Still others acknowledge that the roles for women that Paul created for the Christian church are somewhat restrictive and secondary, but say that this is because of the status of women in society at that time, not because Paul hated women. The role of women in the Christian church as ordered by Paul continues to be controversial and a matter of scholarly interpretation and study today. This paper takes a look at the role of women in the Christian church as…

In the healthcare field teamwork has a very important place. Doctors and nurses must often work together, but these people must also work with assistants, PAs, volunteers, and administration. Working as a team makes things easier and they tend to also operate more smoothly, which is preferable no matter what business a person is engaged in.

The Scopes "Monkey Trial" was less about a teacher's violation of an arcane Southern law regarding the teaching of evolution in the classroom and more about the place of Christian culture, doctrine and ethics in the modern world. The trial came down to William Jennings Bryan (who had run for president a quarter century earlier) on the side of Christian culture and the atheist Clarence Darrow as Bryan's political, social and cultural antagonist. While ostensibly there to prosecute and defend John Scopes respectively, the spectacle that the trial quickly became revealed the underlying purpose of the courtroom scene: like the trials at Nuremberg that would come a quarter century later, Scopes was a "show trial," the real meaning of which was a "showdown" between the Old World ideology and the New -- or, in other words, the extent to which the Christian religion had a place in modern America.…
Aunt Hattie and Chester
hat might Chester have done to avoid this tragic outcome?
Relatives like Chester want the best for their family and loved ones. However, when Aunt Hattie was no longer able to live completely independently, Chester had little choice but to seek some kind of care or assistance. For people like Hattie who are still capable of caring for themselves to a certain degree, assisted living facilities are often the most appealing option. These facilities offer constant care and supervision, while allowing the individuals to live in the independent and self-sufficient manner that they are used to.
Many assisted living centers lure clients in with things like fireplaces and big-screen television, giving the impression that they are a much better alternative to bare-bones nursing homes. However, the facilities are often less safe than they seem. It is things like staff shortages and insufficient training that place elderly…
