Hospice Care in the United States
Hospice care is one of the best services the health care industry has to offer, and is available to all walks of life. When the patient has reached end of life, hospice provides support to the loved ones as well. “Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and, in most cases; care is provided in the patient’s home. Hospice care also is provided in freestanding hospice centers, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness. Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations” (NHPCO, 2011, par.2).
Hospice care has evolved over many years and has a lot to offer: Patients are kept as comfortable as humanly possible. For loved ones, finding peace or comfort is likely more achievable when helping their loved ones let go, making the course of grieving and acceptance much less difficult. Caregivers, employees, and volunteers are faced day-to-day with the reality that life as we know it does expire; it is only fitting then, that greater patience and appreciation of self, family, and life in general become more characteristic of the providers than might be otherwise. This facet of health care, one might fear, would require tremendous resilience. On the other hand however, facilitating a peaceful transition for individuals worthy of rest, only demonstrates the natural occurrence of deep love and respect for humankind and the deity (or deities) they worship.
Hospice care can be administered at home or inpatient at a facility. There are four levels: routine home care, inpatient care, respite care, and continuous nursing care. Routine home care is with the patient at home,…...

Research three diverse faiths. Choose faiths that are less well-known than mainstream faiths or are less known to you, such as Sikh, Bahai, Buddhism, Shintoism, Native American spirituality, etc. Compare the philosophy of providing care from the perspective of each of these three faiths with that of the Christian perspective and your own personal perspective. In 1,250 -1500 words, summarize your findings, and compare and contrast the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research. Some of the questions to consider when researching the chosen religions are: 1. What is the spiritual perspective on healing? 2. What are the critical components of healing, such as prayer, meditation, belief, etc.? 3. What is important to people of a particular faith when cared for by health care providers whose spiritual beliefs differ from their own? 4. How do patients view health care providers who are able to let go of their own beliefs in the interest of the beliefs and practices of the patient?

Steroid Users in Hall of Fame

...allowed into the baseball Hall of Fame? The argument is simple and it’s about time for Cooperstown to open the doors to those who have admitted to or have been accused of using performance enhancing drugs or steroids. Ending the witch hunt: Baseball voters are trying to determine whether or not to vote on players these days based on crimes that players may have or not have committed years ago. Some baseball voters have stated that they would vote for players in the steroid era but they would not however vote for anyone found guilty. It’s hard to know who did cheat and who didn’t cheat in the so called steroid era but if one were to gain entry into the sacred hall then the door will open up for others based on their merits. Saving the Hall of Fame: Baseball has always been called America’s game and the Hall of Fame for baseball enthusiast has always been a destination. In 2013 the Hall of Fame only inducted 1 person in and he had not played in over 130 years. The induction ceremony takes place in the summers and it was always a place to go and honor your favorite players and learn about ones prior to them. As a new generation of fans grow up and the players form the late 90’s and early 2000’s are not in the hall fans will likely not make the trip to the place where legends are remembered. The Hall of Fame is a place to honor the greatest that have ever played the game. It is based on what a player does on the field. People agree that the hall is not based on who......

Cheaters and the Hall of Fame

...Cheaters and the Hall of Fame Geoffrey Barndt COM/170 April 7, 2014 Dr. Hancock Cheaters and the Hall of Fame Should there be a difference in punishment between the use of performance enhancing drugs and gambling in the sport of baseball. In baseballs long and great history there has been two scandals that have given baseball a black eye. One being the story of Pete Rose, and the other being the story of Barry Bonds.” After a Hall of Fame worthy career, rumors began to circulate that Pete Rose manger of the Cincinnati Reds was gambling on baseball”. (Allen 2012) After an investigation Pete Rose was banned from baseball for life. Even though he never admitted to betting on baseball games. In the late 1990s two men Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa captured the nation’s attention when they both surpassed Rodger Maris record for the most home runs in a single season. Not even three years later Barry Bonds surpassed both men when he hit 73 home runs in a season. “The high-octane offense that Major League clubs were delivering, beginning in the late 1990s, made for great sports theater. But as allegations and revelations of performance-enhancing drug use began to surface, the public began to realize it was just that -- theater, fiction, cheating. The record books had been rewritten, but also tainted”. (Allen 2012) The league began a crackdown on drug use. In 2004 the story broke that during the investigation of a nutritional supplement company called BALCO one player......
