Answer:

Answer:

Rachel (patient in this case), is a 58 year old lady and is suffering from cancer. She practices both traditions as she was brought up with Jewish as well as Italian culture. Initially, she was born to a Jewish family.
After the death of her father, her mother married an Italian man. His family practiced Catholic-Italian traditions. Rachel had learnt many Jewish customs and traditions. Her mother taught her so that she could preserve her heritage.
Treating a patient from multicultural backgrounds can be a little difficult for the nurses. Nurses are on a position where they have to set relation between patient's culture, health literacy and language with the motive of correcting the patient in terms of health.
Nurses should remember how language and culture needs to be kept in mind while treating the patient. If these factors were not kept in mind, it may affect the patient in adverse manner. Patient may become frustrated, short tempered. He/she may start complaining about the treatment even if the hospital is providing best facilities.
