Since the employee morale is going down, I think it is important to obtain a good relationship with the local university, Essex University, to provide jobs and internships to the students in the nursing program. This nursing program will make sure that our managers will be able to teach classes at the university and help train the students to be prepared to work in the hospital. This should address the problem of the employee turnover rate to decrease and bring down the number of nursing vacancies. Nurses are a very important part of the hospital because they are by the patient’s side more than the doctor can be, so they have to show
I am deeply honored to be recognized as an eligible candidate for the National Honors Society. After learning about the National Honor Society, and what the organization represented, I knew it was something I wanted to participate in. This organization works hard to better educational opportunities for students across the nation, and that is something I would like to play a part in to further the outstanding reputation of the NHS. I believe that this is an opportunity I deserve due to my recognizable hard work. I am aware that the NHS is known for recognizing students with outstanding grades and commendable characteristics, which is something I believe I have obtained throughout my years of hard work.
With a shortage of nurses, the care and safety of patients may become compromised. The nurses themselves may be having feelings of dissatisfaction, overwhelm and distress. Nurses who may become overwhelmed with the high number of patients may become frustrated and burnt out. And inadequate staff of nurses may lead to a negative impact on the patient’s outcome. The quality of care the patients may receive in facilities with low staffing may be poor.
By increasing the number of beds by 50%, the total number of beds available would become 135 (90 x 1.5 = 135 beds). As a result, Shouldice Hospital could perform a maximum of 45 operations per day before running out of bed capacity. With operations still being performed 5 days per week, the total bed capacity would become 675 beds (135 beds x 5 days a week = 675 beds). In relation to the current operation of 30 patients per day, the utilization rate for bed capacity would now be 66.67% (450 / 675 = 66.67%).
Partners Healthcare had established several financial resources pools, such as the short-term pool (STP) and the LTP, so that they can satisfy different needs of the several hospitals in the network. In more detail, the STP was invested with very high-quality, short-term fixed-income financial instruments. The average maturity of these instruments is about one to two years. STP is always treated as the risk-free part of the hospitals’ holdings. On the other hand, the LTP is thought as the risky part of holdings. It consists of different forms of equity and a smaller fixed-income part.
On examination, the testicles are descended bilaterally. The right groin is positive for direct reducible hernia. Assessment is right inguinal hernia. Plan is for robotic-assisted laparoscopic right inguinal hernia repair with mesh.
In 1916, Dr. Shouldice graduated from Toronto University and established Shouldice hospital. Armed with his extensive research expertise and credentials, Dr. Shouldice started a private surgical practice while still teaching at Toronto University. With fabulous information and great examination, Dr. shouldice designed a surgical strategy for hernias which in the later years came to be known as "Shouldice Technique".
According to Healthy People 2012 there are more then 800,000 new cases of diabetes each year, with the numbers on the rise. With this in mind, Healthy People 2012 has identified diabetes as their number five focus area. In order to reach their goal of improving the quality of life for people with diabetes they have identified diabetes teaching as their number one objective. Furthermore, in order to reduce the number of complications of diabetes, Healthy People 2012 has identified foot ulcers as their ninth objective. Through patient education Healthy People 2012 hopes to reduce the number of foot ulcers in people with diabetes, as diabetes is the number one cause of nontraumatic amputations in the United States. In order to
Patient Charlie, a police officer and father of three was experiencing intense pain in his abdominal, pelvic, and sacral regions. Charlie was told he would need a laparoscopic hernia surgery as soon as possible. To begin the surgery doctor Carlos Garcia makes three small cuts, one to the right of the inferior and within the umbilical, the second in the lower abdominal area below the thoracic cavity, and in the final incision the navel is pulled apart. This allows Doctor Garcia to make a half inch lateral incision. Next, the doctor inflates the abdominal cavity with C02 gas to insert the procar which he aims towards the pelvic region. Once the scope is inserted we see the difference between the left and right inguinal. The hernia is in the right
The proposal has many key pieces of information pertaining to the successful completion of the project. It delivers a clear analysis of financial growth, analysis of both inpatient and outpatient surgery markets and a clear analysis on how each phase of the project will address the strategic priorities of the hospital. The medical staff of Memorial Hospital consists of 160 members. Nearly 66% of admissions were received from the top ten physician groups. See Appendix 1. The proposal clearly states that the inpatient surgery market drives the profitability of the surgery business. Therefore, it is vital for the project to expand its surgical capacity and increase profitability. Memorial
The organizational structure is as important as culture for health organizational to provide best care to patients. According to Glickman, Baggett, Krubert, Peterson, and Schulman, (2008) "Organizational design is a formal, guided process for integrating the people, information, and technology of an organization, and serves as a key structural element that allows corporations to maximize value by matching their corporate design to overall strategy." It is really hard for large organizations to provide high quality of care when the organization structure is not set properly. Most large health organization have their work divided into small tasks and each employee is responsible for his or her duties. As I have discussed earlier communication is major problem in health organization that leads to many medical errors. Without clear communication between
A flowchart is considered a communication tool that represent each step in a process or workflow. “Workflow is a term used to describe the action or execution of a series of tasks in a prescribed sequence” (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2017, P.231). In this assignment a flowchart was created to evaluate the process of admitting patients on a neuro unit. The aim of this assignment is to examine the effectiveness of the process on the unit. “Flowcharts allow you to draw a picture of the way a process actually works so that you can understand the existing process and develop ideas about how to improve it” (Institute for Healthcare Improvement, 2017).
The best possible solution is ACA 1 having a score of 10 in the decision matrix. The operation should be scheduled on Saturday; this solution seems like to the most feasible in terms of cost and time and also leverages the existing strength of the hospital in providing quality services to the patients.
