Essentially, for a well-balanced and nutritious diet, you should minimize or eliminate altogether, high levels of fats, saturated and trans fat, sodium, sugars and cholesterol. Fried foods don’t help either. Focus on foods rich in nutrients, fiber, calcium, vitamins, such as A, D, E and B12 to name a few. Increase your intake of fruits, lean meats, green leafy vegetables, and baked foods. Reducing your portion sizes can provide a dramatic boost to maintaining your healthy body by positively affecting your caloric and fat intake. Consuming too many calories is a significant cause of being overweight and unhealthy. So watch those calories.
The amounts of people that enter the hospital are mostly old people or those that get sent in the emergency room. Also, the nursing students who are supposed to be training in the hospital have decreased. When we look at what is going on in the economy in recent times this will lead to an increased demand for health care workers. All a person needs to do it to understand what a nurse really does and he or she will definitely have a better outlook on it. Even though nurses do more now than before, the image that people have on them are still the same.
I was hoping and praying I didn’t lose control, lose my temper, lose my mind or lose all three. Every hour that I was calm was a good hour, but every second I gave in to the demons clawing at me I hated myself more.
This second time was different. I felt tired – actually exhausted – nauseated, moody and just plain awful. In addition, I constantly felt this sense of dread – a feeling of impending doom. It was like a black cloud that hung around my shoulders and my head.
I began writing letters to the media, politicians, and the Department of health and human services and i took pictures of the bruises and conditions that I witnessed on my camera phone. It was only after I was terminated for this and went to the local T.V news station that my concerns got any attention. After airing a segment on the local news, others came forward and DHHS did a thorough inspection.
Luckily though, Kaiser Permanente and the U.C. Davis Medical Center have stepped forward to save this important social service. U.C. Davis Medical Center gave ,000 and Kaiser Permanente gave ,000 to keep the flu shot program alive. This is great news for this particular program. In this particular flu season. But it certainly still raises questions about the future prospects of government services aimed at the health care needs of citizens.
I believe it is time for all of us to deal with this horrible plague in a more direct way. Our most valuable resource is our people, yet as a society we often turn our backs when they are mistreated. The home, a place that should be safe, is often a battleground.
