Tuyet, an 8-month-old Vietnamese girl, presents to the Emergency Room with a 4-day history of fever, diarrhea and vomiting. She appears dehydrated and listless. Her mother states that this is the second time this month that Tuyet has been sick. She thinks it is because Tuyet was “exposed to the wind”. There are dark ecchymotic stripes on her back. Her 4 brothers and sisters are at home with their father. He is a temporary worker and they have no insurance. Tuyet is admitted to the pediatric unit and a Social Services referral is made.
- Do you know what healthcare beliefs the family subscribes to?
- What caused the marks on Tuyet’s back?
- What barriers to healthcare can you identify?
