I’ve not only gained an abundance of knowledge from this course, but I also took a lot away from my classmates. Seeing how they would handle situations and what they have experienced during their clinical time was really interesting to me. I have gained so many strategies from this course for improving outcomes of care and patient safety. A few of those strategies are always promoting communication, learning from mistakes, and that quality can always be improved.
4 How does its operations strategy support its business strategy? Shouldice Hospital had an excellent well-developed, focused service delivery system.

Through the many trips that my family has taken to the hospital due to various reasons, I have become fond of the hospital and its many wonders. After all the things that the medical field has done for me and my family, I decided to contribute to my local hospital to volunteer and help out those who pay visits to the hospital. Through my exposure to various clinical populations, I want to improve my ability to serve others in this capacity that can guide me towards the medical profession in the future.
• I enjoy working alongside other healthcare professional. I believe that collaborative practice is the future of medicine; thus, I would appreciate the chance to work alongside medical students to provide an optimal healthcare for the clinic patients. I have previously collaborated with the medical students more than once by working closely with the Boarder Health Project. Because of these collaborations, we were able to administer more than 150 flu shots, in addition to counseling patients on the proper use of OTC medication.

Prior to walking in, my expectations for what I was about to partake in and experience were all over the place. I didn’t know whether to expect the absolute worst types of situations going on such as people being rushed into medical rooms or the most basic situations such as patients waiting for a strep throat test. I did expect to see a wide range of patients in terms of race, class, age, and gender. Contrary to the patients, I didn’t expect to see a wide range of race, class, age, and gender within the staff. I expected to see mostly female nurses, and male doctors, majority being Caucasian and middle age. I didn’t expect there to be that much security or any type of possible crime that could go on within a medical facility. I expected the waiting area and facility to be very large, large enough to accommodate a lot of patients at once. Lastly, I expected that taking our field notes would be a challenge because writing notes down in front of patients would be awkward and during interviews it would be hard to conduct a good interview while writing the whole time.
I had the privilege of going to Smith Elementary School in Long beach for my clinical rotation. I didn 't know what to expect before going in, but as soon as I walked in, I was greeted with friendly smiles. Nurse Olga was the most friendliest nurse and she showed me how things worked around her facility. They have computer system program that shows all the teachers can look at to find out their student’s health conditions. The nursing office had pretty much all the basic equipments that she would need to take care of her patients. My activities included signing in patients as they came in, prioritizing care based on complaints. Checking patient 's temperature was very common and I had to call several parent to pick up their children due to fever and malaise. I learned how to give vision and hearing test to children. Couple patients had routine medications like Albuterol and Clonidine. Most of all I had to treat basic wound care.

www.Medicine.virginia.edu The positive approach to HFS training allows patients lives to not be put at risk during the teaching process. Student’s can practice administering a catheter or assisting in surgery without the added stress of harming the patient. HFS allows students to practice complicated procedures they otherwise may not have the opportunity to participate in. From poison to natural disaster, with HFS students can practice group situations and emergency preparedness and have time to reflect on what they could do better next time.

Working with these young individuals taught me essential, transferable skills such as respect and patience for clients in my care. I have also helped students in year 11, giving them advice, support, and motivation in ways to revise and do well in their exams. It was immensely rewarding to see the students develop confidence in their abilities. I also carried out work experience in a Medical Centre for two weeks. I developed more confidence through talking to patients through phone as well as one to one. After shadowing doctors taking multiple tests on patients I was able to enhance my observational skills. Through talking to patients I was capable to build rapports with them. This is very important skill for midwives as it allows the patient to be comfortable and gain
