Mary Happens is an 82-year-old Hispanic patient who has been admitted to the hospital. She has Medicare and Medicaid. What demographic factors should be considered in providing this patient health care? What is the effect of culture on prevention and use of alternative remedies?

Do not try to fit anyone into a stereotype!
Get the necessary information about this patient from her and her family.
I'm incensed that so-called "demographic factors" should be considered in providing health care. Treat the patient not the ethnic group.
