Work units of the participants varied, but the most prevalent was the transitional care unit (27.2%).
More than three-fourths were trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and had participated in a mock code.
More than half (54.5%) had been involved in more than 10 resuscitation events,
but only 38.4% had ever invited a patient’s family member to be present during resuscitation.
A total of 25.0% indicated they would want a member of their family present during their own resuscitation, and 16.2% had been

Acting as the town’s Visiting Public Nurse, go to the poor area of town, locate two homeless men and then discuss two recommendations that you would give them to improve their overall health. You will need to support each recommendation with scholarly peer-reviewed support in proper APA format. Do not state you would give them a phone number or address of resources. Put some thought into your response. Remember these two homeless men do not have money, phones, or health insurance.
Being a nurse practitioner, first and foremost I will talk to the two of them to inquire about their health and if they are receiving any health facility from state at all.
Clearly, they face circumstances such as no transport facilities, no insurance, and unavailability of other coverages etc. I would suggest them with available patient-centered medical houses which offer free medical check-ups and care for homeless people, and introduce them to such community center and government agencies who are related to social welfare (Maness & Khan, 2014). Another service that I can provide is to inform them about supportive housing, local agencies which can provide aid in seeking employment, provision of legal assistance and advocate about the case management, so that they can easily get their-self treated with this service and improve their overall health. As major health issues are caused by mental and emotional stress, so having a shelter to rest at can help them relieve and focus on improving their health (Fitzpatrick-Lewis et al., 2011).
