I Work at the county hospital where I provide indirect patient care. Just in this year alone due to regulation change or structural change in leadership, are molding for the reconstruction in how the hospital is seen in the community. Focusing on new technology and changing the overall practice of how the hospital treats and care for their patients. Health care around the world is quintessence reconstructed with the rapid expansion going in all direction in the healthcare field I found three trends in providing valuable assets that are critical to transforming patient's care. Since it is essential that medical institutions are expected to grow and in reaching and achieving defined standards of care, excellent merit in medical education, research
When working as an Rn, there are many different hazards and risks associated with direct patient care such as coming in contact with infectious diseases and toxic exposures, stress, violence, and injuries. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information or the NCBI, the occupation as an Rn is very stressful and can impact your health in a negative way. It is not uncommon for an Rn to have a massive workload on a day to day basis that can be so stressful ulcers are formed. In addition to that, patients can be very demanding and require special care. Not to mention that patients may pass away as well as require special, unfamiliar equipment to be used. Another hazard in the medical field in relation to the nursing field is the exposure to infectious diseases and toxic exposures.
Based on what we have learned thus far with regard to ethics, regulations, and federal mandates, what are the challenges faced by healthcare executives and direct care providers such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and healthcare organizations in general.

SC received phone from Pa’s dtr starting that she spoke with provider agency Accucare regarding changing Pa’s schedule from a split shift to one shift starting at 5:00 AM and ending at 9:00 AM. SC informed DCW that she is not authorized to make any change to Pa’s care plan or schedule. DCW was furious demanding to know why she is not authorize to make changes to Pa’s care plan since Pa’s she’s Director of Care. SC explained to DCW that she is not Pa’s director of care because Pa’s is directs own care and moreover she cannot be the direct care worker and the Director of Care because both role conflict with each other. DCW stated that she is only being paid for 4 hours but is constantly assisting Pa’s managing her health and navigating services/resources,

Medicine is a unique field in the sense that being a healthcare worker requires cumulative knowledge and skills in order to provide care for others in a sensitive and effective manner. My first direct patient experience with healthcare came on a Sunday morning in the basement of a church that serves as a clinic for the homeless, or for those who cannot afford to receive medical care. I was tasked with escorting patients from the waiting room into a makeshift examination room, and to gather basic information (why they came in, past medical history, drug use, and how they were feeling). A man in 50’s was the next patient, and I escorted him back to the room to start my routine as usual. When I asked about any current drug usage, he unexpectedly
I do not have direct access but it made me realize that despite of these provisions, having direct access would definitely have a great impact in my present practice in assisted living facilities and community-based outpatient settings. Granted there is a supportive management from my facility, it would open up an opportunity to treat patients who will directly come to me for their neuromusculoskeletal problems and without waiting for more than three weeks just to get a referral and/or before their condition worsens. The long wait times to see their primary care physicians and lost or expired prescriptions are some of my patient’s dilemma which can hold up service. With direct access, I would be able to examine and evaluate my patients, start
The Australian Government’s Better Access to Psychiatrists, Psychologists and General Practitioners through the Medicare Benefits Schedule (Better Access) initiative is a health promotion program that an older person may benefit from in addressing this area of development. The Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA, 2012) advises that the central goal of this national program is to enable access to evidence-based treatment to promote health outcomes for individuals with clinically indicated mental disorder. For these individuals, access to care is enabled by subsidising the financial cost of up to ten individual and ten group allied mental health services each calendar year (DoHA, 2012).
To make the case that Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a disruptive model of healthcare delivery for individuals and employers, one must first understand how the traditional primary care physician is reimbursed by the third party payer (health insurance and government).
It has been a foreseeable goal of healthcare organizations to solve integration and interoperability problems across systems with disparate EMRs since the introduction of health information exchanges, with the emphasis on improving clinical outcomes and containing costs. The Vermont HIE did just that in 2015 when they successfully interfaced all 14 Vermont hospitals to their HIE through the initiatives of the Vermont Information Technology Leaders or VITL (Raths, 2016). VITL was able to accomplish this by developing a clinical data warehouse that allowed them to create data marts for Accountable Care Organizations or ACOs. Realizing head on that for ACOs to integrate processes and improve care coordination, VITL stressed the need for data
Client centred care is a crucial aspect to nursing as it allows nurses to put the patient at centre of care while addressing his or her health needs (Sidani & Fox, 2014). When exploring the concept of client centred care, it is crucial to look at it in terms of the patient’s situation so that care may be altered accordingly (Gottlieb, 2013, p.1). Anna’s care would thus be diverse as she continued on her journey from admission to discharge. Initially, when Anna was admitted to the Emergency Department, her nurse completed a triage of her presenting symptoms and care for the needs surrounding them (Harding, Taylor & Leggat, 2011). Anna came in presenting pelvic pain and postmenopausal bleeding, which caused her nurse to look into various physical
To begin, the term “managed care” refers to health insurance plans designed to provide healthcare at the absolute lowest possible cost (Bodenheimer, 2001). These plans include PPO (Preffered Provider Organizations), HMO (Health Maintenance Organizations), and POS (Point of Service Plans). PPOs are a group of providers and hospitals that have agreed to accept lower costs for the care provided, as long as the patient remains within the network of providers; closely resembling a “Fee-for-service plan” (Bodenheimer, 2001). An HMO is slightly different in that it allows members an array of provider choices for a set monthly fee. However, the providers must be within the network. Additionally, HMOs focus on preventative care and typically offer routine

On October 30, 2016 at approximately 0150 hours Security Officers Ariel Weiland, Omar Alonso, Brandon Rodriguez and Steven Evans responded to a 51D (Disorderly patient in the E.D) in the Special Care Unit Room #38. Upon arrival Security staff met with Register Nurse Sheila Melody Berja who stated that patient Alessandra Brewer (DOB:FIN- 01/18/1996-86379488) who was sleeping in her room and not responding to what staff was asking, was uncooperative. Nurse Berja stated that she needed assistance in having Ms. Brewer roll over on her back so she could get an accurate reading on her vitals. After reasoning with patient Brewer and getting her a warm blanket she rolled over on her back and let Patient Care Tech Mary get a reading on her vitals. The
