When my patients were suffering and in pain I had to smile and tell them, “Don’t worry everything will be all right.” We both knew that everything would no be all right and they had just wanted to die.I witnessed patients telling other members of the nursing staff how they had begged and pleaded with god to take their life due to the excruciating pain they were experiencing.He suffers with congestive heart failure, which one can live with but which if not treated or maintained properly will cause a painful death.
After graduation I moved into my own apartment and took a job at St. Therefore, for about a year and a half I had to take care of dying patients.
These people had a slim chance of surviving for over six months to a year.
Euthanasia is when a terminally ill patient chooses to end his/her own life by participating in physician-assisted suicide.
After reading the ten sources and extensively researching euthanasia, I still support and promote the legalization of euthanasia.
A congestive heart failure was treated for diagnostic purposes by an angiogram that triggered a stroke.
Violent and painful hiccups, uninterrupted for several days and nights, prevented the ingestion of food.
When I was a junior in high school I was offered the opportunity to explore my career options by pursuing advanced learning in the medical field.
I attended regular high school for one half of the day, the other half of my day was spent in a nursing home (extended care facility), Port Huron Hospital and also at St. I spent many hours studying medical terminology and proper body mechanics, I also learned how to take care of sick patients while promoting healthy life styles changes.
Singer and Siegler make several good points in their essay, however, pain control seems to be the biggest issue facing the terminally ill as stated by the doctors. People who are faced with a terminal illness experience just as much emotional turmoil as physical pain.
When Singer and Siegler say, “physical pain can be relieved with the appropriate use of analgesic agents,” I am saddened because it has been my own personal experience to watch terminally ill patients become over medicated and drugged up so much that they are unable to think or act for themselves (Seyler 333).
