Awakenings - Honors Human Anatomy And Physiology

370 words, 2 pages

Intro Sample...


The movie “Awakenings” takes place mostly in a chronic hospital. In this hospital, as a new doctor, Doctor Sayer witnesses how all of the patients are being treated. What Doctor Sayer sees is neglect in giving the patients care to the best of the staff’s ability. As a CNA, we are taught to take care of a person as a whole, meaning physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and everything in between. The staff at this chronic hospital only took care of their patients to the point where their job is finished, not giving quality care. In the movie, it is extremely obvious how the patients are being neglected, such as in the scene when Doctor Sayer first asks the nurses for help in giving more care to the patients. We find that these two nurses were just sitting around at the nurses’ station watching television, not wanting to be bothered when Eleanor asks for their help.

True, the patients that Doctor Sayer was dealing with were seemingly unresponsive, but it does not justify why the nurses were not even trying to make these people’s stay at the hospital more comfortable. Although Doctor Sayer is not one to be interacting with people, because of the fact that he is mainly a secluded scientist, he takes the initiative to interact with the patients and tries to make their stay as comfortable as possible. Because of his scientific mind, while interacting with these patients he also finds that these patients had responses to certain things such as music and catching an object. His discoveries lead him into wanting to interact more with the patients, although at this point it may be considered experimenting. The other nurses find it amazing that these spacey patients actually have responses to something. With this, they become inspired to help out in Doctor Sayer’s experiments. Along with their amazement, the staff begins to feel proud towards their patients because of the progress they have shown the staff, and with that the staff gains a sense of joy from doin View More »

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (
