Quality Improvement for Elderly Adults The nurse is challenged with the care of patients over a lifespan. Each stage of life brings its own physical and emotional changes which directs the care needs. The care needs of the pediatric patient will be much different from the needs of the geriatric population. The geriatric population has very specific needs which has prompted the government to establish the Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. The QAPI provides the framework for nursing facilities to develop and implement changes which address deficiencies the facility was found to have. Also, the QAPI program requires practices and policy be put in place to monitor care of the residents. The purpose of this paper is to list some of the changes the elderly go through as they age, and demonstrate these changes in a quality improvement project. After review of literature, I will discuss the challenges, barriers, and solutions as related to quality improvement. Lastly, I will discuss the quality of care for the geriatric in the future.
Quality Improvement Report Quality Improvement (QI) is an organizational approach that leads to the quality of patient care and services through use of specific set of guidelines, principles, and methodology.

The process emphasizes modifications of system when there are changes to achieve organizational goals (Begunn, Kaissi & Sweetland, 2005). For example, a leader’s approach to patient safety could be a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI). CQI is an approach to quality management; it principle is built on the traditional quality assurance that emphasizes on an organization and it systems. It focuses on process rather than an individual; it recognizes both internal and external customers and it improve system processes.

First, the processes of QC and QA are exactly the same, with the same methods of QC for the chemistry and the hematology machines, and similar recording methods to keep track for accreditation. Second, there is a lot of problem solving, maybe more so in the clinic than the hospital because you are the only person in the clinic lab whereas in the hospital, there are more people to trouble shoot with. Third, the samples are run as quickly as possible, ensuring the that the patient comes first. Samples that are able to be run on site are run as soon as they are back into the lab, this ensures that the doctor can contact the patient as soon as possible with results and get them the treatment or further help if needed as quickly as
Assignment: In the mid 1980s, We Need Greenlight ' But for Which Reason? Quality control of film cartridges on R2 was a routine process, but the QC department found that there are some discrepancies between the defect rate of QC auditors and the Operators. Defects were being passed through the entire manufacturing process unnoticed. While pre-existing measurements at quality control showed low overall defect rates, there were complications in the process and interference from operators that affected QC numbers. Project Greenlight was initially necessary to allow for accurate measurement of processes and quality control during the process as opposed to the end of the process.
