What is HCAHPS? According to http://www.mghpcs.org/eed_portal/Documents/PatExp/What_is_HCAHPS.pdf, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (known as HCAHPS) is ‘the first national, standardized, and publicly reported survey of patients' perspectives of hospital care administered by MGH. This patient satisfaction assessment is required by CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
What is earth’s core made of and how? The earth’s core is made of two parts. The solid, inner core of iron has a radius of about 760 miles (about 1,220 km) which I got from http://www.space.com/17777-what-is-earth-made-of.html . That part is surrounded by a liquid part called the outer core, which
Chemtrails is a conspiracy that everyone has been thinking about, and has been getting more and more paranoid for. Conspiracy theorists have been coming up with theories ever since the late 1900’s, and are still coming up with them today. These theorists have come up with many different theories about this conspiracy, Chemtrails, some think that they are chemicals sprayed to help the human race survive, some say that Chemtrails are to help protect the earth from global warming, and some say that they are a gel like substance that makes people ill, and the government would do this to help with depopulation, and to test a new bioweapon for war, but it could, and most likely is just airplane condensation from planes flying in the upper troposphere.
Weather Bureau easily didn’t care about the Cuban’s forecasts. Through Dunwoody, Moore influenced the War Division to restriction from Cuba's legislature possessed transmit lines all links about the climate, regardless of how blameless, aside from those from authorities of the U.S. Climate Agency, this at the pinnacle of the tropical storm season. It was very much for Moore. Too Clear. Moore organized the restriction on Cuban climate messages and ended all immediate transmission for West Non-mainstream players storms reports from the agency's Havana office to its New Orleans station. "The Assembled States Climate Agency in Cuba has been incredibly irritated by autonomous observatories securing a couple scattered reports and afterward endeavoring to make climate forecasts and issue tropical storm notices to the disadvantage of trade and the shame of the Taxpayer driven organization." The unusual signs from the Bay before the tempest were evident and Cuba Climate Department officially sent notices, Isaac and the U.S. Climate Department still rejected effortlessly the Cuban's figures in light of the fact that the connection between the U.S. Climate Agency and Cuba had a great deal of strains and clashes taking after the American and Spanish War. Willis Moore, the head of the Climate Department in Washington, DC around then run a battle against the Cuba by denying any joint effort and help from Cubans. He prohibited all climate correspondence from Cuba. He
At the turn of the century, technology was hitting a booming time. Electricity, railroads, and telegraphs were still somewhat new in world. With all of this new technology man has still yet to master any of it; weather forecast included. At the turn of the century, the weather forecast in the United States was operated by a branch of the government known as the Weather Bureau. It was their job to predict the weather, including hurricanes, so that the navy can bypass the storms. To maintain funding, they Bureau would refrain from making predictions of hurricanes unless granted permission from
Every health care organization is struggling to address the mandated Centers for Medicare (CMS) core measures, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers (HCAHPS) patient satisfaction scores, in addition to the reportable events requirements. Given the reimbursement tied to outcomes, the organization is taking a serious stance in addressing the quality and safety initiatives, in addition to patient satisfaction scores. Furthermore, the organization has a patient safety counsel that focuses on nursing professional practice through the utilization of evidence based initiatives, assuring that nursing is deeply entrenched in working towards quality and safety goals.
The Challenger Disaster Weather can play an enormous role in historical events that are remembered decades, and even centuries, after they happen. It can turn small events that would go unnoticed in history to events that are remembered as some of the most important in world history. Until relatively recently, when the Weather Bureau was formed in 1870, we lacked the capability to forecast the weather and prevent incidents like these (Robbins). Even though weather reporting from that moment on would become widespread across the country, it would not be enough to prevent disasters such as the Challenger disaster that rocked the country on a chilly day in 1986.
By utilizing HCAHPS, the results gathered by the organization will be compared nationally. Conclusion In conclusion, this paper explored the strengths and weaknesses of this organization. A weakness is identified and improvement is recommended to create a Patient Advisory Council in the Shared Governance to promote better patient-centered care. In doing so, patients will have sense of empowerment by having their input in the plan of care. To measure the success of the recommended change, the use of HCAHPS and patient metrics are utilized and compared nationally.
The area I chose from the HCAHPS survey for my final project is communication with nurses. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services explain there are three broad goals that shape the HCAHPS survey. One goal that stands out in relation to this topic is that the public reporting of the survey results is designed to create incentives for hospitals to improve their quality of care (“hcahpsonline.org,” 2015). As a nurse, you can make or break a patient's experience with one encounter. Communication is integral to the nurse-patient relationship and to deliver high-quality, compassionate care for patients. Developing rapport is vital to promote good patient care. When nurses communicate efficiently with interest, listen actively and demonstrate
But not all weathermen are meteorologists, many are broadcast journalists. Broadcast meteorologists are equal to atmospheric scientists. All in all the jobs are alike in many ways but they all do different tasks, even though they help each other to research and predict the climate and weather. Broadcast meteorologist take the data and information given to them from atmospheric scientists, and relay that information to the public, so we can know what the weather will be like for the future, but to also know if severe weather is forthcoming, and the actions needed to avoid serious injury to
The HVRP is one of several federal public programs administered by the VETS to assist homeless veterans; specifically, the HVRP assists veterans in their pursuit of a job to provide them with a steady and stable income. The program provides for those in need through grants given to local/state programs or non-profit charitable organizations. Moreover, the HVRP is
1. I honestly can't blame anyone for it for the devastation of hurricane Katrina. It was a hurricane. You can't really stop a hurricane from coming. Sure, you can prepare for it by making levies and stocking food. But, you can't stop it. If we could we really wouldn't need weather forecasters.
1. First, one of the clinical outcomes of implementing EHR is to improve quality of care by reducing medication errors. Research has shown that the use of computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems led to a reduction of 55% of serious medication errors. In addition, the use of clinical decision support (CDS) tools helped decrease 32% of medication errors related to the prescription of antibiotics outside the recommended dosage range. Therefore, states with lowest meaningful use put their patients at increased risks for medication errors. In fact, hospitals with the highest rates of meaningful use adoption were able to reduce their adverse drug events by 52% whereas the hospitals with the lowest rates of meaningful use implementation
In table (6) no significant association between knowledge and attitude of physicians towards HCAIs. Contrary to this, nurses knowledge was significantly associated with their attitude. Also the total scores of the nurses' knowledge and attitudes were directly correlated (r=0.117- P= 0.0001).From the table also no significant association or correlation occurred between knowledge and practice of both physicians and nurses. The total attitude scores of physicians were directly correlated with their practices concerning HCAIs. (r=0.645 – P=0.0001).
The JOBS Act makes a number of changes to traditional understandings and practices regarding what is a "public offering" that have been discussed in detail elsewhere. The regulation significant reforms to the IPO Process for “Emerging Growth Companies.” and to Other Capital Raising Rules. It allows general solicitations in some private placements.
