I was nine years old when my family made the stannous decision to come to America; with only a few clothes and barely any money, the pursuit of the American dream seemed more like a fantasy than anything else. Ever since I was young, I was drawn to the medical field. Looking back, it all appears as a nightmare now: a cold room, no electricity, and my parents imploring for the nurses help. Yet this nightmare was my firsthand experience at the detrimental effects of a limited healthcare. Growing up in a poor town of Albania, I faced minor health concerns, but it wasn’t until I got sick with a common cold that my life almost ended. The unsanitary hospital condition and the lack of medications were part of the sad reality I could not escape from. Thus today, it is my goal to make a significant contribution to the health of the future generations. My passion for the medical field combined with my determination on building and perpetuating an outstanding healthcare service, has lead me to pursue a master’s degree in Health Administration
With an aging population and various sicknesses or disease, such as diabetes and cancer, there is a demand for medical treatment for many who don’t have the wherewithal to access medical care. For example, there is a growing demand for non-emergency medical transportation (or NEMT). An estimated 3.6 million Americans miss or delay medical care because they lack transportation to their appointments (Wallace and Hughes, 2005) Access to Medicaid is another method by which the Human Services worker can assist a client in meeting their medical needs.

The motivational approach Mr. Ferrell is using is intrinsic reward. Because of the personal satisfaction, he has. He follows the rules of Right-Way super market which lead him to believe he is making an significant contribution to this organization (pg.296). Which he seems to think means he does not need to listen to his employees. Mr. Ferrell exhibits elements of scientific management. He sees Amy as more of a machine than a human being there to work not to suggest concepts for a business, he’s worked at longer. Whereas, I would use extrinsic rewards as a motivation. This ensures that an employee knows they are appreciated it can be as simple as telling them what a good job or in this case listening to an employee’s ideas.
Medic-aid: This covers the destitute, pregnant women, individuals with severe physical disabilities, mental illnesses or addictions, seniors that require long-term care and people that need government support because of their financial status. But People in this category are not given much attention by the doctors as it is clearly written ‘poor’ all over their faces as soon as they present the type of insurance they possess. This means doctors lose money each time such patient consults them. A reluctant behavior is noticed by this group of people to seek healthcare even when it is needed, as many of them feel they will not be attended to or given proper care, due to the fact that they are unable to pay. Unfortunately, this is one of the causes of depression, morbidity and mortality.
They are ready to expand their services to meet the growing need for health care for frail, lower income elderly and disabled adults who present the most complex and costly challenges to the Medicaid system. They reduce the need for costly, long-term nursing care. Because this program is responsible with all costs, they will do their best to keep participants as healthy as possible, to practice preventative measures, to monitor conditions, to prevent falls and to keep participants out of expensive hospitals, emergency rooms and nursing homes. PACE of the Triad does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex.What is more important for my adult is that they keep people in the community and out of nursing homes, reducing hospitalizations, and saving people money while providing quality outcomes for
Though the American healthcare system has made big steps towards providing affordable healthcare for everyone, there remains a growing population of people who fall through the system’s cracks. These people are the medically underserved. They are typically the victims of unfortunate life circumstances that has left them without health insurance, or with insurance that provides inadequate coverage. The underserved also includes those who have trouble accessing healthcare for any reason. Anyone with illnesses or disabilities that require assistance beyond their coverage, or people who live in remote areas where healthcare services are sparse fall under this title. The term also does not exclude those who have sufficient insurance and resources, but struggle to understand and navigate our increasingly complex system of healthcare.
Recognizing this growing problem, some physicians around the country have decided to tackle this issue. This paper will explore the problem of people being unable to access continuous healthcare as well as some reasons why this occurs. It will also reveal a new initiative called the Student Ho Spotters Program that has been created and tested out at hospitals around the country that aims to get people the established care that they need.
According to University of California (2016), more than 650,000 patients per year in the United States and 2 million patients global are affected by end stage renal disease (ESRD). Number of patient effective by ESRD is increasing every year by 5%. How serious problem it is shows Healthy people 2020. One of the goals of Healthy People 20202 is” reduce new cases of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its complications, disability, death, and economic costs.” According to Healthy People 2020 CKD and ESRD are important public health problems in our country and main cause of suffering and poor quality of life of affected people. They are “responsible for premature death and exact a high economic price from both the private and public sectors.” Both diseases are very expensive to treat. Closely 25% of Medicare budget is
According to an article in the Health Affairs Journal there are approximately 60 million American citizens covered by state based Medicaid and Medicare programs. These individuals are at the highest risk of facing chronic health issues and has issues with their ability to access quality health care services. Low income seniors and adults with disabilities make up the vulnerable population within the United States. These individuals are the sickest and poorest individuals within the community and are dually eligible for government assisted health programs, Medicaid and Medicare. Based on an article written by Rostai, Russell, Peng, Brickner, Kurowski, and Sheehan, within today’s society, caring for the vulnerable population is fragmented,
After hours, after days, the judges finally decided. Olaf Dietrich was successful, when he testified against the right to a fair trial. The judges decided that his trial was unfair, as instead of being forced to represent himself, the judges should have adjourned the case to enable Dietrich to attempt to find a legal representation. The Dietrich Case was established that all Australians have the right to a fair trial. After this decision was made, it left Dietrich to be given appeal and have his case reheard in Victoria. But he had already served his full sentence. The prosecutor did not want to retrial, as this will cost more time and money and even if Dietrich was found guilty, he had already completed his sentence. The outcome did not only
After the study’s completion, over 40 participating inmates, several correctional officers, and the supervisor of educational programs at Folsom have written letters about personal benefits and improvements in the prison milieu resulting from the TM program to the director of the California State Department of Corrections and to the governor’s office. Of the more than 200 inmates and 17 staff members who have been instructed in TM, over 90% have indicated they are very satisfied with the TM program, see positive changes in themselves, and have attended follow-up
The area of determent in this case came in the form of betrayal. This is the emotions Mrs. Bestor’s must’ve felt when she heard the broadcast that depicted her as an “dictatorial administrators” and the criticism of her lack of leadership by Mr. Flemming’s. To an outsider looking in, it sounds like Mrs. Bestor has no control over her school or staff. Leading up to the radio incident, Mrs.Bestor’s goals were not to censor Mr. Flemming, instead she wanted him to express himself in a manner that's professional and collaborative in order to solve any issues at hand. His professional conduct was in fact what limited his freedom of speech at Westfield High School. If Mr. Flemming’s conducted himself in a different manner, more of his colleagues and
The “Community Resource Sheet” is list of organizations that may or may not provide you with the medical services that a client needs. Some of these organizations provide their services free of charge, where as others charge based on the individual’s ability to pay, (i.e., based on an individual’s income). But these philanthropic measures have not improved the plight of the “working poor,” retirees, nor those left homeless by the recession, minimum wage jobs that do not offer health insurance, or a living wage, illnesses, on the job injuries, accidents, or marital separation and divorce. These are just a few reasons people find themselves in dire straits medically, and financially.
