Antimicrobial  Agents Antimicrobial agents are essential components in the treatment of  various bacterial infections as they help to kill or prevent the growth  of microbes such as bacteria, fungi, and protozoans. Prior to the  discovery of antimicrobial agents, treatment options for patients with  bacterial infections were limited. For many patients, treatment often  resulted in the amputation of limbs or even death. Today, treatment  options for bacterial infections typically have a more positive  prognosis. Due to the various types of infections presented in patients,  it is essential to be able to identify the underlying cause of the  infection—whether bacterial or viral—before recommending drug  treatments. This will help you identify whether or not an antimicrobial  agent would be appropriate and which specific agent would target the  infection. In this Assignment, you consider the appropriate use of  antimicrobial agents for infections.  To prepare: Review this week’s media presentation on principles of antimicrobial  therapy, as well as Chapter 8 of the Arcangelo and Peterson text. Consider the categories of antimicrobial agents. Think about differences between viral and bacterial infections. Reflect on why proper identification of the infection is key to  selecting the proper antimicrobial agent. By Day 7 Write a 1- to 2- page paper that addresses the following:  Describe the categories of antimicrobial agents. Describe differences between viral and bacterial infections. Explain why proper identification of viral and bacterial infections is  key to selecting the proper antimicrobial agent.

Immigrants are one of the largest vulnerable populations in the United States. There are approximately 44.5 million immigrants in the US according to research done in 2017. The US has the largest number of immigrants as compared to other countries, Germany has the second highest number of immigrants calculating only 12 million followed by Russia with 11.6 million. When looking at the US compared to other countries, the US has almost 4 times the number of immigrants as the other leading countries. With this high number of immigrants, they are vulnerable for impaired health and wellbeing for many reasons. “Refugees and immigrants can be defined as vulnerable populations because they are often in an unknown environment with little understanding of the new culture, resources, or language and will likely require a host of support in order to acclimate to their new environments” (Grand Canyon University, 2018).

Public health nurses need to be aware of the people who fall into this category within their community and treat them with the same respect and dignity that they would for people who do not and ensure that they care for their needs. “This includes accounting for language barriers, lack of insurance, and provision of resources such as clothing, food and water, and possibly housing needs” (Grand Canyon University, 2018). To do this we must be knowledgeable of their culture and health beliefs and assist them in finding resources that can improve their health. It can be difficult for this population to advocate for themselves because of the lack of knowledge and understanding of how our health system is constructed and ran. Language can be on of the biggest barriers when assisting immigrants, and we as public health nurses need to be aware of these barriers and try to offer assistance when communicating with them. These can include things such as having an interpreter available to allow for easier communication of their needs. In the hospital we have our interpreter phones that we can use to effectively communicate with our patients, so by having these for the use of public health nurses could better the health of this vulnerable population.
