Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Post a response to the discussion board by addressing the following questions:
Do you agree or disagree with the Humphrey statement? Why or why not?
State your reasons based on your knowledge of the health care system, current research, observations in the clinical area, and personal experience.
Justify your responses with appropriate resources.
