How to Save a Life: The discovery of the Germ Theory

Scientists often develop new theories and ideas once previous postulates are shown to be inadequate. After numerous attempts to understand how germs spread, scientists still lacked a theory that explained the cause of diseases. The germ theory was instrumental in formulating an understanding of various diseases in order to protect the public from lethal epidemics. The development of the germ theory is credited to Dr. Robert Koch, Dr. Joseph Lister and chemist Louis Pasteur. The theory helped other scientists develop future vaccines and procedures to stop the spread of disease. The invention significantly changed how society and medical experts thought about and practiced medicine. The germ theory made it possible for scientists to discover the complex causes of infections and diseases such as cholera. At first, the general public was very apprehensive about the rapidly changing medical practices that resulted from the germ theory. However, once these practices were successful, the public trusted the new procedures such as the introduction of the antiseptic practice. Although many medical breakthroughs were introduced in the late 19th and early 20th century the most significant was the discovery of the germ theory because it allowed European physicians to discover other medicines. It was the foundation for the discovery of other medicines such as cholera and the inception of antiseptic surgery.
Before the invention of the germ theory, scientists did not understand the concept of disease. Surgical operations only occurred in dire situations because the operation was a very risky procedure and the patient would often die. Additionally, a patient would often look for alternatives to surgery due to the high death rate. Scientist did not know when, why and even how germs spread from person to person and…...

Criminal Procedure

...Criminal procedure policy paper CJA/364 DEC/19/2012 Susan Strick Criminal procedure policy paper Criminal procedure is broken down into two models and was designed by a professor who studied law at Stand Ford University his name was Herbert Packer. The first model is due process, this process believes in the rights of the individual this will be known as politically liberal. The second model is crime control this supports to regulate the conduct and behavior of individuals. This is considered politically conservative. These models are intended to embody the sets of different values that run the criminal justice system. In this paper both of the criminal procedure will be discussed and compared to show the similarities and differences. This will also be a way of figuring how the effects of policies in the criminal procedure this will be done by looking at the amendments made in the constitution of the United States looking at the fourth, fifth and sixth amendment and also the fourteenth. The fourteenth amendment including the bill of rights will be a critical aspect of achieving the goal of this paper. The procedure that is most used in the criminal proceedings is the due process model. As an individual a person will try to preserve the standard of holding their right to life, property, and liberty. As an individual a person will not let go of the rights without undergoing the right due process promised to them that is stated in the bill of rights. An officer even......

Procedures and Prosecution.

..."Procedures and Prosecution." Please respond to the following: • Evaluate United States v. Agurs. Another very important public policy issue is an appreciation for the difference between obtaining a high conviction rate or being perceived as “tough on crime,” and seeking justice. Debate your position on the death penalty regarding whether it is used for justice or for other purposes. Support your position with examples or evidence. The book states that in “both civil and criminal trials a party must share information according to pretrial orders or in response to the other party’s discovery requests” (Szypszak, 2011, p. 211). I believe that the death penalty is just as bad as the crime that was committed. I believe that people deserve the right to have their life changed in a manner that only those that have true understanding of grace and mercy and forgiveness can understand such a judgement is not up to me or anyone and I will forever stand by that. • In the text, it states that “the (Supreme) Court has agreed that the death penalty can be constitutionally sustained only if its imposition is consistent with ‘evolving standards of decency’.” With so many juveniles committing heinous crimes, take a position and debate as a public administrator on whether you think the death penalty should be allowed for juveniles? Use the e-Activity case as a reference for discussion. I am against the death penalty for juveniles no matter the age. I can not face the possibility...

Polices and Procedures

...Policies and procedures for safeguarding and child protection in England and Wales are the result of the Children Act 1989 and the Children Act 2004 which introduced further changes to the way the protection system was structured. The Children Act 1989 aimed to simplify the laws that protected children and young people. They were thought of as a serious shake up and made it clear to those who worked with children what their duties were and how they should work together in cases of child abuse in Working Together to Safeguard Children 1999. The tragic death of Victoria Climbie at the hands of her carers in 2000 highlighted the dysfunctional way in which services for children were happening. The Laming report of 2003 examined this and produced the green paper/policy Every child matters which in turn instigated extensions to the Children Act 1989 creating the Children Act 2004, all of which support the UNCRC's articles e.g. 19, 32, that give children the right to be protected from harm and to have protection procedures in place that enable care for a child that safeguards their well-being. The Children Act 2004 focuses on: • The integration of children’s services and the introduction of children’s directors with responsibility for local authority education and children’s social services. • Lead councillors for children’s services with political responsibility for local welfare. • The establishment of Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards (LSCB) with statutory powers to ensure...

Policies and Procedures

...A corporate lifetime ago policies and procedures were a nuisance put in place by management as a way to standardize business practices and attempt to use a single set of rules for everything everywhere they did business.  And it was a drag.  I have clear memories of my formative years on Wall Street with a seemingly endless row of binders on my cubicle shelf that appeared best suited to gather dust rather than provide anyone direction because in the end, well, all they did was gather dust.  So the irony isn’t lost on me that here I am a decade or two later standing on my soapbox explaining why having things documented is a good thing. Twenty years ago there really weren’t enforceable regulatory standards such as SOX or GLBA.  Frameworks and assessment guidelines such as CobIT and NIST and ISO 17799 were either in their infancy or not yet developed.  And so outside of a very few pockets of industry there wasn’t a whole lot of good reason to have to put down on paper what you did, why you did it and how you got it done.  Sure there were the auditors that came around every now and again but things were simpler in those days and much of what they needed could either be found in the occasional dusty binder or grabbed from the data center operations library. Today we live in a different world.  There are a seemingly endless number of regulations in place that are tested monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually.  There are rules as to how you must configure your network,......

Sampling Procedure

...population of interest. The are two main types of sampling procedures suitable for conducting educational research, which is probability also known as random sampling and non-probability or non-random sampling. This paper will further discuss the two categories of sampling procedures that are commonly used in educational research and highlight the strength and weakness of using the discussed sampling procedures. Probability sampling is the type of research in which the researcher chooses the respondents randomly. In this type of research each respondent has an equivalent possibility of taking part in the research. probability sampling is a way of choosing the respondents randomly as (Mcmillin,1996) highlighted that “this way of random selection implies at least every member of the population or the subgroups has an equal chance of being selected” Each of the population has equal chance of being picked up into the sample, moreover one member does not effect in selection of the other and there is no relation with one another, hence it is free from subjective factor or personal error or bias and prejudices or imagination of the researcher. The researcher makes sure that the sample formed by this method, may be representative of the population. while (Cohen etal.2007) noted that probability sampling is a best procedure for selecting sample he further stated that “they are many types of probability sampling procedure used in educational research, but only four are commonly......

Effect of Antiseptic Handwashing vs Alcohol Hand Sanitizer

...Effect of Antiseptic Handwashing vs Alcohol Sanitizer on Health Care- Associated Infections in Neonatal Intensive Care Units Introduction This article seeks to determine if alcohol hand sanitizers are as effective as antiseptic handwashing at reducing or eliminating health care associated infections in a neonatal intensive care unit. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA, recommends use of waterless alcohol hand products in lieu of traditional handwashing for patient care, but there is little data demonstrating the impact of this recommendation on health-associated infections. Protection of Human Participants 76.8% (119/155) of eligible nurses agreed to participate in the study and had one or more hand cultures performed. The primary reason nurses refused to participate was unwillingness to perform study procedures, such as completing diary cards. Over the course of the study, 12 nurses withdrew, 9 because they left the study NICU, and 3 because they no longer wanted to participate. Nurses completed 1070 daily dairy cards. No informed consent was obtained. Data Collection A clinical trial using a crossover design in two neonatal ICU’s in Manhattan, NY from 3-1-2001 to 1-31-2003, including 2,932 neonatal hospital admissions (51,760 patient days) and 119 nurse participants. Two hand hygiene products were tested, a traditional antiseptic handwash and an alcohol hand sanitizer....

...Employee exit procedure This procedure applies to all employees leaving the OFT on a permanent basis apart from those who have been dismissed after disciplinary action and agency staff (temps). Any queries about the exit procedure should be addressed to the HRSC. If you are employed on a short term appointment lasting for six months or less, are going on loan to another government department, or going on maternity leave or another period of special leave, you will not normally be expected to attend an exit interview, although you should complete the other forms associated with leaving with your staff manager 1 .This will enable HR to process the arrangements for your departure as effectively as possible. See also policies on maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, career break and special leave. Notification of intention to leave or resign If you wish to leave the OFT, whether permanently or otherwise, you must provide written notice to your staff manager. This is not intended to replace any initial verbal notification, but it is required to confirm the decision. If you are resigning from your employment you must give at least the amount of contractual notice required by your contract of employment (one month for staff up to and including SEO, three months for staff at Grade 7 and above).

Criminal Procedure

...Criminal Procedure Policy Order and liberty are two areas within criminal procedure that have tension among one another (book). Order is a stronger approach toward the criminal justice system than liberty. Liberty concerns an individual’s rights to due process, which means everybody deserves the same rights when arrested regardless of the circumstances such as poor person versus a rich person. The two models that were developed by Herbert Packer were the crime control model and the due process model (book). Both models have similarities as well as differences and not one is “good” and the other “bad” according to Packer. The two primary goals within the criminal justice system are the need to enforce law and maintain social order and the need to protect people from injustice (defenseinvestigator). The fourth, fifth, sixth, and fourteenth amendments play a signifigant role when analyzing both the due process model and the crime control model. This paper will further explore both models as well as how the models view the fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments and how the fourteenth amendment gives the same rights on a state level as well as federal. Crime Control Model The crime control model is a stern approach to the criminal justice system. As described by Hubert Packer, “the crime control model is like a conveyer belt, moving cases starting from arrest to conviction in a swift and fast process (Book).” Fact finding is what defines this model. If an officer makes......

Civil Procedure V. Criminal Procedure

...Civil Procedure v. Criminal Procedure ENC 1102 34 Week 11 Individual Work Civil Procedure v. Criminal Procedure Civil procedure relates to the process where two parties bring a case to the court for a decision on a particular problem. These problems can include but are not limited to divorces, estate distribution, work men’s comp., injury cases, or even matters such as discrimination in the workplace. Criminal procedure applies to the process where the state or federal government is charging and trying someone for a crime that was committed (Civil Procedure, 2012). The rules in civil procedure are different than those in criminal procedure because the actions that need to be taken are different. Firstly, civil procedure requires that a civil case must begin by filing a complaint. The complaint is then, served to the offending party. Once the defending party receives the complaint, they then drafts and files an answer with the court. A party in a civil case can be anyone including people, businesses, and government personnel. When the parties go in front of the court in a civil case, it is to determine whether a person was injured and if they were injured, how much should be compensated for that injury. All of this information pertaining to the civil case is specifically drafted into the court documents (American Bar, 2012). Civil cases, also, have some Constitutional protection in place. For example, the parties involved in a case must file and receive consent of......
