Read the following quote by Hubert H. Humphrey, United States politician (1911-1978).

  • “It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy, and the handicapped.”

Respond to the following prompts using at least TWO reliable, evidence-based, and professional resources integrated with your personal experience. It is recommended that students do not read peer posts before submitting their initial discussions. Your Initial Main Discussion Thread should include the following:

  1. How have you seen the current health care system integrate this ideology?
  2. What observations have you had in your clinical or personal experience to support statement?
  3. How have you seen our current medical system neglect or support this mindset?
  4. Using reliable research, create one evidence-based intervention that would integrate this mindset into one aspect of the nursing profession.
