Ms. Brady Novak says that Student Health Services is “a judgment-free zone.” How might this affect the healing process in those who go there?

    I think it’s really awesome that CUA Student Health Servies is a “judgment-free zone”. In fact, I think all medical providers should be the same. As healthcare providers, judgments must cease and the well-being of the person must be the only important priority. Religion, sex, political views, criminal record, finance, and any other thing other than the fact that the person is a person should not be taken into account. I mean, if someone was Muslim or if someone was poor, would that mean they cannot receive healthcare? What if they were enemies with the hospital or perhaps even criminals, should they be deprived of medical attention? No. All people have the opportunity to see healthcare professionals because healthcare is and should always be a “judgment-free zone”. In this way, more people (ALL people) can acquire adequate health care and more doctors and effectively follow their moral code: to do no harm.
