SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS-HEALTH CARE 2 Social Institutions-Health Care Even though everyone can that medical care is an important facet in society, there is disagreement the social implications of health care management. Every culture has had a system of medical or health care in one form or another. Unfortunately, throughout history, one’s social standing can affect the degree of care they will receive within that society. These ideals can be separated in by three sociological theories. These sociological perspectives fall within three groups. One of the theological perspectives is the functionalist perspectives. This perspective holds that all social structures, institutions and groups exist to fill a specific function within a society. As stated in our text “The functionalists felt society worked best when there was homeostasis or equilibrium, which sometimes meant that the people in power (status quo) remained unchallenged” (Vissing, 2011, p 1.3). One of the proponents of this view was Emile Durkheim (1858-1917) who is thought to be one leading sociologist in the structural-functionalist theoretical perspective field in sociology. From a functionalist perspective, each facet of the healthcare institution has a task they perform so that the structure as a whole runs smoothly. Different sections oversee each other as a set of checks and balances to administer care to the patient while still ensuring the system runs
