EMOTIONAL LABORS: HEALTH CARE(7)

HEALTH CARE(7)

This is confirmed by a general practitioner in the same paper who observes that “feelings can get in the way if you’re trying to make a diagnosis . . . you’ve got to try and remain objective. It’s better to get on with the medicine and let the nurse’s deal with the emotions”. Because of the degree of potentially heightened emotion that can occur within the medical relationship, doctors and consultants often attempt to limit their emotional investment with precautionary or protective strategies (Lupton, 1997). An example of this is given in McCreight (2004) who noted that although the consultant tends to deliver bad news of pregnancy loss, it is left to the nurses to deal with the patient’s subsequent emotional distress. One study that did look at emotion management amongst doctors (albeit medical students) was that of Smith and Kleinman (1989).

They note that there are no courses in the medical curriculum that deal directly with emotion management, yet the culture of medicine does support certain unspoken rules with regard to emotional display. Smith and Kleinman note that emotion management is vital for helping doctors deal with unwanted feelings such as disgust or even sexual arousal, and that medical students draw upon a range of strategies to help them perform this work; including transforming the patient or the procedure into an analytic object or event, empathizing with patients and use of humor.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
