Medical errors play a big role in health care. Understanding a health care professional's role in the communication of medical errors is critical to an organization. After reading Chapter 8 in your textbook, explain in detail your role in reporting a medical error. What aspects do you need to consider? Who/what/where/when and how is this error reported?
Unbeknownst to her or her care team, a 51-year-old woman’s breast cancer has an etiology rooted in the fact that tumor suppressing genes are present but have been silenced. Consequently, she has not synthesized normal cancer-suppressing proteins and neoplasia has resulted. What process has accounted for the woman’s cancer?
Since, the options are not given the question is incomplete. The complete question is as follows:
Unbeknownst to her or her care team, a 51-year-old woman's breast cancer has an etiology rooted in the fact that tumor suppressor genes are present but have been silenced. Consequently, she has not synthesized normal cancer-suppressing proteins and neoplasia has resulted. What process has accounted for the woman's cancer?
A. Chromosomal translocation
B. The “two-hit” hypothesis of carcinogenesis
C. Epigenetic mechanisms
D. A DNA repair defect
Answer: C. Epigenetic mechanisms
In cancer epigenetics the modification of the DNA of the cancer cells occur which will not cause the change in the nucleotide sequence rather it will affect the way, through which the genetic code is being expressed in the body. In cancer different type of epigenetic mechanisms can result which may cause silencing of the tumor suppressor genes, modification of the histone, dysregulation of proteins of DNA, alteration of the methylation pattern of DNA.
According to the given situation, is an example of the epigenetic mechanism of cancer. This is because the tumor suppressor genes of cancer cells are present but these are silenced, that is they are non-functional as a result of this the cancer-suppressing proteins will not be synthesized in the body. This entire condition will be contributing to the neoplasia.
Which portion of a blastocyst will develop into the embryo? a. blastocoel b. trophoblast c. inner cell mass d. blastomere c. morula
c. inner cell mass
The inner cell mass of the blastocyst forms the embryo while the outer layer, the trophoblast forms the placenta.

A nurse is instructing a client who has a new prescription for a daily dose of lovastatin extended release. Which of the following information should the nurse include in the teaching?a. Report to the clinic for quarterly monitoring of kidney function while taking this medication. b. Mix with applesauce after crushing if the medication is difficult to swallow. c. Avoid consuming dairy products while taking this medication. d. Take the medication with the evening meal.
The correct answer to the question: Which of the following information should the nurse include in the teaching, would be: D: Take the medication wiht the evening meal.
Lovastatin is a medication that is used to lower the production of cholesterol by the body, in order to reduce is depositing on the blood vessel walls. Given its form of action, and its effects, and since the medication given to the patient is the extended-release version, then the indications are to instruct the patient that he should be taking it once a day, and it needs to be during a meal, preferably the evening meal. He should never chew, split, or crush the tablet, no matter what. This is why the correct answer is D.
