The documentary that sprang from their collaboration — “No Más Bebés” (“No More Babies”), which is being broadcast on PBS tonight — aimed to change that. Quilligan revolved around two fundamental questions: Did obstetricians at County Hospital perform tubal ligations on their patients without proper consent?
And did doctors single out Latinas for the procedures?
This is not only for their protection but for the patients too so that they do not cause more harm to the sick by contaminating a sensitive room.
Doctors also spend time with patients who have rare or unknown diseases including dangerous viruses.
More so vaccines and other preventative medication as well as supplements and vitamins. More importantly, the sanitation levels of the hospital need to be at par and reach the recommended standards as per the advisory bodies for inspection.
Sanitation is so important for hospitals especially because they also deal with biological waste.When there are nursing shortages, this an contribute to contracting infectious diseases and also spreading them.More so, due to staffing shortages, patients are also at risk for healthcare-associated infections because they are dealing with a small number of nurses.Although they may take precaution, it is not always conclusive.During a recent Ebola epidemic, an American doctor contracted a mild strain of the disease after his visit to West Africa where he was treating a patient.In 1975, these four women were among the 10 plaintiffs who filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court claiming that the Los Angeles County U. The events in the trial even had a famous setting: For decades, Los Angeles County hospital served as an exterior shot for the soap opera “General Hospital.” And the claims were disturbing — that the hospital had made a practice of misleading women about sterilization and coercing them into giving consent.Yet when Virginia Espino, a historian, began researching the case in 1994, almost all these details had been lost and forgotten.This is what comes from surgical processes and the likes.Nurses do spend a lot more time with patients than the doctors do. Attend to their needs by bringing meals and even engage in physical activity through physical therapy and walks for the elderly.“They couldn’t find it.” And until Espino teamed up with her friend, the Academy-Award-nominated filmmaker Renee Tajima-Peña (“Who Killed Vincent Chin?”), the public had never heard any of the plaintiffs describe their own experiences with the ill-fated suit.
