My answers were not decisive which reflect my weak critical thinking skill. For example, when it comes to medication administration, in instances where things are not clear, it should always be referred to the doctor which in this case I belatedly remembered. Nurses should also make sure that they knew how to use all the equipment that is used in the nursing care. In a medical emergency situation, every second counts. In the simulation, epinephrine administration was delayed since the nurse did not know how to use the automatic injection. Over-all the simulation had a significant impact to my learning process.
The Everest simulation was a unique experience. Before the actual simulation started, my team discussed the approach we would take and how we will deal with situations wherein the personal goals collided with the team goals. We shared our character profile information with each other and began the exercise with excitement and a firm resolve to do our best.
This simulation experience allowed me to practice my focused assessment skills, delegation of tasks, prioritization on of tasks, interdisciplinary communication skills, and skills that I have not been able to participate in such as blood administration. I learned that my strengths are patient education, delegation, noticing changes in patient condition, and working as a member of a team. I need to improve my speed of completing tasks, my confidence, and my process of working through new skills.
This is a stimulation review of a cardiac care unit that is facing working capital shortages. As the lead financial consultant brought into address the financial indicators and evaluate to bring working capital back to in order at the Elijah Heart Center (EHC). The other financial analyst will focused around addressing issues as they relate to this particular cardiac care unit; what funding can be acquired to garner medical equipment; what funds can be used for capital expansion; finally a summation of findings and a conclusion of what the overall stimulation showed, in regards to how through the analyst were.
Over the past three weeks in the University of Phoenix Marketing Management class, I have completed three simulations based on real life marketing situations. The first simulation was titled, "Forecasting Market Demand." This simulation discussed the importance of determining the future demand for your product in the voice commanded software industry. The marketing team for the new Listensoft software needed to accurately forecast the production capacity of the new product and the pricing strategy. This task is especially difficult because human behavior is difficult to predict. Forecasting behavior " is about generating numbers out of expectations, opinions, statements, prior patterns and a host of other subjective elements" (Forecasting
“Representing over 20 percent of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product and accounting for approximately $1.5 trillion in revenue, health care is the single largest industry in the U.S. today.” (University of Phoenix, 2015). However, it is a vulnerable industry. The facility we are looking at is in New York, where the third highest losses in the country occur because of numerous problems dealing with Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, cuts in funding, and pressures for discounted managed care, amongst others. The facility is called Elijah Heart Center (EHC). First we looked at the capital shortage because in an emergency, the hospital might not have enough cash to sustain itself. The challenge was to decide on the best strategy to solve the
I enjoy the simulation very much. I found it very educational as it put you in a situation to learn from actions. I felt so achieved when it finally said I won the game.and my office was fully expanded. So at the end I only missed three. One was about how often your password should be changed. I thought it was every thirty days and the answer was quarterly. The other two questions was about the USB and a firewall. I did not think about the patient’s USB containing a virus. As soon as I answered, I realized why my answer was wrong. Most of the answers are fairly obvious and it just requires the health care worker to be aware of what they say and do. I could see how the simulation could transfer to occupational therapy. Some therapist may be
My role in the simulation activity was a homeless male with a 8 year old son. I felt overwhelmed being homeless. I had nothing to work with no money, no bus passes. I ended up asking others around me for help. Thankfully, I found a retired gentle man who gave me his last $10, which I was able to use to purchase bus passes. The good thing was my child could go to school, eat breakfast, and lunch. I learned that others are why more resourceful than I am. Others were stealing and they were able to get ahead. I tried to do things the “right” way and I was still in the same place when the stimulation ended.
Standard Simulators are used to visualize the treatment area. It mimics the motions of a radiation therapy treatment unit. It is a high investment in terms of space, personnel and money, and can easily be replaced with a Virtual Simulator (VS). This is system software that uses the computed tomography (CT) data to construct a 3 dimensional (3D) patient, using standard computers in stead of a physical patient. The CT is done with localization reference markers made from radio-opaque markers, which is tattooed on the patient for accurate daily setup. The beams can be placed and visualized. The software can create beams eye views (BEV) and digitally reconstructed radiographs. The precise move from CT reference to isocenter can be exported to the treatment unit (Zimeras, 2013). It provides high-quality imaging tools to alter size and contrast, and can be connected to any DICOM supporting CT/MR scanner. Once completed the beams,
Despite the age and immensity of the Universe, we have not been visited nor been contacted by extraterrestrial beings because we are a part of a computer simulation. According to the Simulation Hypothesis, theory provided by Nick Bostrom, humans are unaware of being part of this computer generated simulation. The most compelling piece of evidence that supports this hypothesis is the fact to one can consider a sequence of possible situations which an increasing fraction of all people live in simulations becomes more accurate. (Bostrom 1)
I attended the second simulation, and met with four junior students and two instructors (Gailkost & Bleza). The simulation was about a patient who had a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and hypertension. The patient had also difficulty breathing and chest pain. During first scenario, as observer the group of students did relevant job. They communicate with patient by ideal method. They focused on the respiratory system and cardiac system more than other system of the body. In the second scenario, I moved to the control room with professors (Gailkost & Bleza). I learned a lot of thing related to the simulation, such as the specific time of the simulation, how can I contact with nursing
Sometimes failure can really be the best teacher. This was the case with the Lakeview Regional Hospital Simulation Exercise. During the simulation, I learned a lot about working with a team, knowing when to stand firm and when to compromise. I have been a part of plenty of projects, but sometimes I can be a little lost when it comes to the healthcare aspects of things. It was during these times that I looked to my teammates to assist with filling in some valuable blanks about the healthcare environment. I do have a lot of experience with introducing technology, training and media relations. It was during these parts of the simulation that I could really lend a helping hand. The simulation illustrated the importance of buy-in amongst the implementation team as well as other members of the entire organizations. It showed that there will always be some inherent resistance, but that doesn’t mean that change is impossible as long as there is some flexibility.
