The mother-daughter health team wants to address the disparities in care head on. Their initial goals are to make the East Orange community aware of the clinic, as well as to provide education on disease prevention and to refer patients, as needed, to services that address the many social determinants of health.
Earlier this fall, Harvard University successfully defended itself against the latest and most closely watched attack on university affirmative action. The lawsuit brought by conservative political strategist Edward Blum and his group Students for Fair Admissions claimed that admissions processes unfairly penalized Asian applicants in favor of black and Latino students.
One of the early beneficiaries of these affirmative action policies was a black woman, one of six siblings born to a single mother and raised in poverty and who died when only 47 years old from acute myelogenous leukemia.
Our mother had the talent and drive to become a physician. Affirmative action policies helped to mitigate the structural impediments blocking her path to success, and that of many others like her. Although she died prematurely, her legacy lives on in the patients she cared for, the communities she served, the future physicians she mentored and the organizations she led.
A Connecticut woman who stormed the U.S. Capitol during the January 2021 insurrection has been sentenced to five weekends in jail, 60 days of home confinement and a $2,500 fine, while her daughter will serve 90 days of home confinement.
Jean Lavin and her 20-year-old daughter, Carla Krzywicki, were sentenced Friday by a federal judge in Washington. Both pleaded guilty in January to a misdemeanor charge of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.
On Aug. 5, 2022, Judge Christy Criswell Weigand of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania found Anna Zaydenberg, owner of Elder Resource Management Inc., operating as ComForCare Home Care, and her daughter Marsha Simonds, owner of Staff Source, liable for $1,242,146 in back wages and an equal amount in liquidated damages. Both companies are also liable for the full amount.
One of my patients is 91 years of age, resides in a nursing home and is bedridden and noncommunicative. She has been more or less unresponsive for the past two years. The physicians who previously cared for her did not think intubation or hospitalization for acute problems were appropriate for this patient. The general consensus has supported palliative care. The daughter, who has power of attorney, has resisted the physicians' opinions. She has changed physicians every few months because she disagrees with the medical community about her mother's code status and hospital transfers. The daughter is in her 50s and spends four to six hours daily at her mother's bedside. Some nurses have said that they think the daughter is angry with her mother for a past hurt and that keeping her alive may be her way of punishing her mother.
The family physician submitting this case is to be commended for wrestling with a very difficult problem. The patient's family physician has taken an appropriate first step in the management of this situation by setting boundaries through a verbal contract about limits in providing care for the mother. A more formal step might involve the physician writing a contract outlining those limits and asking the daughter to sign it. While legally nonbinding, it carries more symbolic weight than an oral contract and might even provide some legal protection if litigation were to become a consideration.
In either a verbal or written contract, it is essential to establish mutual goals of treatment.1 A lack of clear treatment goals is a common cause of conflict among treating physicians, family members and patients. Based on the information given, it appears that the daughter does not agree that the goal of caring for her mother is palliation. Too often treatment itself becomes the goal rather than the means of facilitating palliative care.
If the daughter's primary goal of treatment is to maximize the length of her mother's existence, a helpful step is to explore how prolongation of the mother's life has meaning for the daughter. What does her mother's continued existence as a living human being, albeit an unresponsive one, mean for the daughter? While the mother may not be responding verbally, she may be responding to the daughter physically, perhaps squeezing her hand or smiling in response to verbal stimulation. What does the daughter gain from the time she spends with her mother? Is the mother the daughter's only living relative? Any one or a combination of these factors may be preventing the daughter's emotional acceptance of palliation.
Even when a verbal or written contract is established that includes agreement about the goals of therapy and the accepted means of reaching those goals, conflicts can still occur. If conflicts do occur, the contract should be reexamined to determine if there has been an evolution in thinking about the particular goals that the physician and the family had agreed on. If, in this case, it becomes clear that the daughter will continue to push for treatments the physician is uncomfortable providing, there are ethical grounds for refusing to provide a requested treatment if there is no reasonable expectation of benefit.2 In such a circumstance, it may be necessary to help the daughter identify a physician who shares her same values and treatment goals for her mother.
The daughter's ambivalence about her mother's death, the long hours spent at the mother's bedside and the staff 's second-guessing of the daughter's motives are cause for concern. It appears that there may be unresolved mother-daughter relationship issues that form a significant impediment to the daughter's acceptance of a palliation regimen. Failure to explore the daughter's psychosocial issues could foil even the best-executed contract of care.
Constructing a family genogram could identify underlying psychosocial issues that are interwoven in this case.3 Perhaps the mother is the only living family member the daughter has left. Alternatively, the daughter may have estranged relationships with others in the family. It is likely that a family genogram would identify one or more issues that could lead to resolution following intervention by the family physician or through referral to a social worker or mental health specialist. (For example, the daughter may be depressed and might benefit from treatment.)
If all of the efforts discussed here fail and the family physician strongly feels that the daughter is causing harm to the mother, a final, albeit Draconian option, might be to seek a court order to revoke the durable power of attorney. Because no significant harm seems to have been caused by the daughter's actions, it seems unlikely that a court would take such action. However, depending on the circumstances, such intervention could become necessary.
"There are many actions that women all over the world take. Especially in preventing armed conflicts, to prevent escalation of armed conflicts as well as to silence the guns and get the parties to the table. But once the table is set, most often women are forgotten. Eighteen years down the road, after UNSC resolution 1325, we are yet to see a significant number of women in mediation roles"
In an interview with police, the mother and daughter allegedly said that Celeste Burgess unexpectedly gave birth at home in a bathtub/shower, and said the fetus was stillborn, according to the affidavit.
The two voluntarily took police to the scene on April 29 and showed McBride where the body was buried. According to Tanner Barnhill, who helped the two bury the body, the mother and daughter attempted to burn the body of the fetus before it was buried, the affidavit said.
During her interview with police, Celeste Burgess showed police a Facebook message that indicated the birth occurred on April 22, which investigators used in part to get a search warrant ordering Facebook's parent company Meta to turn over messages between the mother and daughter.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Amanda O'Leary got a call last fall from her daughter, who was just a few weeks into her freshman year of college. Madison O'Leary was a lacrosse and academic superstar at Oak Hall School, about five miles from Dizney Stadium, home to her mother's UF lacrosse program. When Madison went looking for a college, she had Ivy League ambitions, but wanted to be challenged athletically, as well. She found both, as it turned out, about 3,000 miles away. 041b061a72
