"...It is important to treat everyone equally regardless of what they may have done previously in life..."
Brittany Smith, General Studies Student
TranscriptMy philosophy of healthcare is to give every patient utmost respect regardless of their ethics. It is important to treat everyone equally regardless of what they may have done previously in life. I love the simplicity of the golden rule, it says, to treat others as you would want to be treated. In the end this will ultimately lead to your own happiness. One of the major things that I learned from taking this course was how easily people assume that they know a person without even talking to them and learning their story. As a healthcare provider it is vital that I don't judge a patient based on what they choose to do with their lives, it is my job to restore that patient back to health. Faith can play a huge part in a patient recovery as well, it is important to patients that they feel as if that they have our highest attention. I believe it is important to have a holistic view of healthcare and to understand the moral and ethical nature of man.
