Review the brief case study below (adopted from Understanding Cultural Diversity in Healthcare, 2019):
Amiya Nidhi was a young woman in her twenties who had recently immigrated to the United States from India. She was in the hospital to give birth. Her support person was her sister, Marala. Marala kept telling her to get an epidural, but Amiya said that even though she would like one, she could not get one; her husband would not allow it. Cindy, her nurse, overheard the conversation. Having learned that husbands are the authority figure in the traditional Indian household, she went to speak with Mr. Nidhi. She explained why an epidural would be advisable. She said that he seemed pleased that she came to him about it. He said he would think about it, and let her know.
Write a 2- to 3-page paper (page count does not include title or reference pages) that addresses the following:
- What is the issue from a cultural perspective?
- Identify the 4C’s of culture to this case study (The 4C’s of Culture).
- What would have you done differently? Why?
- What responsibilities do health care providers have in this situation?
In Great Expectations and “The Chimney Sweeper”, children were forced to do tasks that they did not want to do without complaints. An idea in “The Chimney Sweeper” is that if you do your job, no harm will come you to you. The young chimney sweeper says “[I]f all do their duty, they need not fear harm” (Blake). These kids needed this mindset to get through the day because the work they did was truly horrendous. The supervisors tried convincing the kids to work harder and not complain by telling them that if they were good boys, they would have “God for his father and never want joy” (Blake). In Great Expectations, Pip was forced to be an apprentice to Joe. Joe was a blacksmith, and blacksmithship was clearly not suited for Pip. Pip had higher, greater expectations for himself than a blacksmith. He wanted to become a gentlemen and strived hard to become so to impress Estella. Pip hated going to the forge; Pip was “dejected on the first-working day of [his] apprenticeship” (Dickens 107). Even though he did not like the job, he was an apprentice for many months without complaints to Joe. Children did not have the right to talk back or complain to their superiors in Victorian Era. Plus, Pip was also forced to go to Miss Havisham’s house. Mrs. Joe threatened Pip and “pounced on [him]” (Dickens 51) if he did not go to Miss Havisham. Pip’s opinion and thoughts did not matter. These ideas were not just present with Mrs. Joe and Pumblechook; it was present all over Victorian Britain. Children were treated poorly and had to listen to their elders. The texts, “The Chimney Sweeper” and Great Expectations, show how some children are deprived from the basic necessities of living. In the poem, the chimney sweepers are very harshly treated. They do not have beds and the narrator says, “in soot I sleep” (Blake). The young chimney sweepers have to sleep on the same blanket they cleaned the chimneys with. They are covered in filth and are in hazardous living conditions. The children are very depressed by their situation and hate their jobs. They are only happy when they are “naked and white, [with] all their bags left behind” (Blake). The author is showing that the children are not happy which is a very important necessity in childhood especially. In Great Expectations, the book starts out with Pip “among the graves at the side of the church porch” (Dickens 2) visiting his dead parents to show that he wants to be loved. In stage one, Pip is lacking close friends and affection. In the book, it is not only Pip that is deprived of the basic necessities of living. Estella is also deprive of freedom. When Pip and Estella are conversing in stage two of Great Expectations about their relationship status, Estella says that she, “It’s is apart of Miss Havisham’s plans for me’” (Dickens 271). This displays how Estella is being oppressed, and Miss Havisham makes all decisions for her. Estella would like to have the right of freedom, but since she is a child she does not have those rights. These basic necessities of living were not provided for the children in Victorian Era.>GET ANSWER
