Discussion Question 2 Employer Health Plans
Discussion Question 2 Employer Health Plans
Discussion Question 2 Employer Health Plans contains:
What are the components of a comprehensive healthcare plan offered by employers? What outcomes are desired by the employer after implementation of the health plan? How would these outcomes be measured?
Death is when life ends. But what constitutes the end of a person’s life? Well the bible speaks of several types of death. Two of those are physical death and spiritual death, and many times they are connected. Physical death is when our mortal bodies cease to all bodily functions, no heartbeat, no brain function and all reflexes are absent. Spiritual death is when our spirits are separated from the life-giving presence of God’s Holy Spirit. Adam and Eve experience both when they disobeyed God. They first had Spiritual death and then they began to die physically.
I am a Medical Surgical Nurse at Health Central Hospital (Orlando Health System), I have been there for three years and fortunately for me, I have never witnessed death at work. I see death as something that is inevitable, and I personally am not afraid of dying, but I have never been ill or have any chronic conditions, maybe my view would be different if I had, diabetes, hypertension, depression, ESRD or CAD. Till now I have managed to stay “healthy”. One of my favorite bible verses is (Philippians 1:21) For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain (NIV). I am sure that when I die I will go to heaven.
Now, I have never witness death at work, but I have at home. A few years ago on Memorial Day my husband, children (3) and I went to Wekiva Springs for a family outing we had a great day of canoeing, kayaking, swimming and played volleyball, my husband’s favorite sport, it was toward the end of the day and we were unwinding a bit, or so I thought. While playing volleyball suddenly my husband collapsed, became motionless and quickly started turning blue, no response, I started CPR on him right away with the help of a park ranger and someone called 911, but by the time the ambulance and fire department got there my husband’s breathing and pulse had completely ceased. When we got to the ER, the doctor informed me that he died in the ambulance. He was a very young and healthy man, he was a Firefighter and an officer in the Navy, he was fit, he ate healthy and ran five miles daily! That was a very traumatic experience for all of us, not only because it was so unexpected, he was “healthy”. The cause of death was a Myocardial infection. I was traumatized for a very long time and blame myself for not saving him, so the grieving process took a long time. To make my grieving process even worse my mother passed away ten months after my husband of pancreatic cancer, I was also with her at the time of her death.
I think that when it comes to losing loved ones, friends and even patients, it never gets easy, everyone deals with death differently, everyone griefs differently. In my case I think I went into survival mode right away after my husband die. I matured, I became closer to God and have accepted death as a very natural thing that will happen to all of us at some point. Meanwhile, I will embrace life and will encourage my patients to do the same live life to the fullest, we want the dying person to die happy.
I NEED YOU TO COMMENT FROM THIS POST, 150 WORDS NEEDED AND A REFERENCE PLEASE
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
