3.2. – Explain the purpose of using diary systems to plan and co-ordinate activities and resources
A. What is the issue? An Electronic Health Record is a computerized form of a patient’s medical chart. These records allow information to be readily available to authorized providers during a patient’s encounter with the healthcare system. These systems do not only contain medical histories, current medications and insurance information, they also track patients’ diagnoses, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images and lab tests/results (source). The fundamental aspect of EHRs is that they are able to share a patient’s information quickly across service lines and even between different healthcare organizations. Information is at the fingertips of lab techs, primary care physicians, pharmacies, clinics, etc. The
Respecting the Little Man There is a lot that goes into making this country work. Whether it be the coal that makes electricity to power our lights, to the cowboys who herd the cattle that becomes the beef that we eat regularly, there’s more to America than just big business. But
We are writing in reference to the ELD mandate and the negative effect it will have on our companies, other small trucking companies nationwide, will create a hazardous and unsafe environment for the public. Our Trucking companies were thriving because of our hard work and dedication until the ELD Mandate.
With all of the regulations and rules regarding the trucking industry, one might assume that the government is causing companies more problems than are necessary. However, there are very good reasons to have these regulations in place. First of all, regulation ensures the safety of all motorists on the nation's
Owner Operators Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) filed a lawsuit stating that the ELD mandate violates the drivers 4th Amendment rights. OOIDA argued that “the ELD mandate that requiring electronic monitoring devices on commercial vehicles does not advance safety, is arbitrary and capricious and violates Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.” (Dills, 2016) The reasons being that the ELD will automatically flag every violation that the driver has and will show every violation on command to the Department of Transportation enforcement official. If it is a new violation then a ticket can be issued to that driver. If it is an already cited violation the driver will then present evidence of that to the
I was unaware that the law does not require drivers to stop for a predetermined length of time.
In the introduction of Sciencebuddies, the author wrote, “ The purpose of these laws is to prevent traffic accidents due to driver inattention.” Based on what the author stated in the introduction of Distracted Driver, “Driving a motor vehicle is serious business and you need to be well-rested and attentive

Red-light-running camera enforcement is a relatively new technology. The cameras where implemented for use in the United States in the 1990s. The technology is available to help reduce a substantial problem that causes injuries and fatalities after a person enters a signalized intersection when displayed a red light in their traveled direction. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has defined the term "red-light-running" in Issue Brief 6 as "the act of entering, and proceeding through, a signalized intersection after the traffic signal has turned red." (Federal Highway Administration [FHWA], 2009 (6), p1) While the FHWA is a proponent of this technology, controversy has been driven by claims from opponents who cite privacy issues, maintenance concerns, and claims that the intervals for yellow/amber signals have been shortened for the sole purpose of generating funds for the states and municipalities that use the technology. Looking back at the history of the traffic signals, authorities that control them and some recent studies may allow for a better understanding of the cameras and their use today.
Electronic Medical Records and Charting Today’s healthcare is changing, and more hospitals are commencing to go paperless using computers for both medical records and charting. Computers are widely accepted, in personal and professional settings. It is an essential requirement for computer literacy. Numerous advances in technology during the past decade require that nurses not only be knowledgeable in nursing skills but also to become educated in computer technology. While electronic medical records (EMR’s) and charting can be an effective time management tool, some questions have been asked on how exactly this will impact the role and process of nursing, and the ultimate effects on patient safety and confidentiality. In order to
I’d like to start this speech today with a question. How many people have been in a vehicle whether being the driver or a passenger and drove by a stationary emergency vehicle sitting alongside the road? I can attest to driving by as well as being on the side of the road. My father, my grandfather, my uncle, and some of my ideals are alongside the road every single day. My grandfather owns a towing company, I have spent my entire life around emergency responders. So, the Move Over Slow Down Law hits very close to home. An article published by Matt Gray states, “Five firefighters per year, and one law enforcement officer per month are killed due to the violation of the Move Over Law. One tow truck driver is killed every six days due to Move Over violations,” (Gray). I am here today to persuade the audience to move over and slow down for emergency responders alongside the road as well as stranded motorists. People need to be aware of the Move Over Slow Down Law.
Drivers who are aware of the abusive cameras are constantly caught up trying to avoid getting an outrageous ticket; therefore, in attempt to avoid them, drivers are unexpectedly and furiously coming to abrupt stops. In result of the urgent and sudden stop of driver A (the first one to cross the intersection), braking quickly doesn’t give driver B neither enough time or physical room to move out of the way, consequently resulting in a rear-end collision, sometimes involving more than just two drivers. The driver’s panic to evade the ticket ends up caught up in the misfortunes of an even sadder circumstance. Leading reasons for this is thanks to the intentional decrease of yellow-light length times. Studies have shown that since the installment of the cameras there has been intentional scheming to cut the period of yellow light to catch as many victims as possible. It has been verified that increasing yellow-lights to at least one second more would decrease the number of accidents by over 45%. (Maass). An extra reason for which there is
Department prohibits truckers and bus drivers from doing it. Former President Obama had outlawed the practice for all federal employees, and the Department of Highway Safety believes it should be forbidden in every state across the country.
