CASE 1
1) Joanna’s diagnosis was that the department was fairly inefficient. There was a large discrepancy in between work load distribution, with mounds of paper work piling up with Magdalena and some of the newer workers, while the clique had time to sit around, gossip and not do work. Another thing was that Sam and Jose never looked at any of the work done by the department. They only reviewed the case histories. The employees couldn’t really explain why their jobs were done and only knew a little about the department and their specific job. Morale was also low, and this is another cause for inefficiency.
2) I think she should recommend that the work load should be more evenly distributed throughout all of the employees. Another thing is that Elena should probably be taken out of her position of management, because she said that she didn’t like it, and the clique rarely listened to her anyway. Sam and Jose should also probably look at the work done by their department, and the employees should receive more training so they know the purpose of their job. If all of these things are fixed, this could also help morale.
3) Sam and Jose have a more delegated style of management, both saying how they didn’t really enjoy being in the donor services department, but liked working in the field much more. They relied on Elena for the management, and sometimes showed up to “just say hi”. Elena’s management style is not fitting with the way Sam and Jose act, she is a quiet nervous type person, who is a good worker but is not a great leader. She also has trouble with conflict, and is ignored by her employees when she tells them to do things.
4) Motivation could be improved if the work load was more evenly distributed. There would be less gossip by the Clique and the other workers would have a little less stress on their plates. Elena may also want to think about stepping…...

Compensating Kidney Donors

...of a transplant, but also opened the door to controversies such as organ sales. The first proposal to sell organs came from Virginia physician Dr. H. Barry Jacobs in 1983. He suggested that whoever could afford to buy a kidney should be allowed to do so. As a result of Dr. Jacobs’s proposal, Congress banned the sale of organs in 1984, and that law still exists today (Meckler A.1). Another change in organ donation happened in 1968, when the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act was introduced. This tried to increase the donor pool and make donating a person’s organs at his or her time of death easier. The act, however, did not raise the donation pool enough to keep up with the organ transplant waiting list (Fentiman 43). The waiting list is the topic of another controversy that has been occurring for several years and still exists today. Currently, there are 98,010 people on the waiting list, and 74,260 of those people are waiting for a kidney transplant (Alexander A1; “Paying Donors . . . ” 8A). Chelsea Lopez is one of those patients hoping to receive that life-saving donation. Chelsea Lopez was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis, a disease that attacks the kidneys, at the young age of twelve-years-old. Leading a normal life is very difficult because the disease causes her to have high blood pressure, anemia, nausea, and extreme fatigue. She struggles to find a normal balance between frequent hospital visits and teenage activities. Chelsea, now eighteen, had to start......

Becoming an Organ Donor

...BECOMING AN ORGAN DONOR By the time this day ends approximately eighteen people will have died needlessly. Not due to car crashes, gang violence or drug overdoses. Surprisingly they will have died from the simple act of waiting. They died while waiting for a much needed organ donation to replace their failing organ. For days, weeks even months they had hoped to receive news that somebody, somewhere had selflessly volunteered to donate their organs upon their death to another human being living on borrowed time. That news never came and time ran out. Perfectly good organs were buried with another non-donor who had no use for them anyhow because that person was already dead, yet without agreeing to give up their organs upon their death another life will be lost. Everyone can help to save lives by donating your vital organs after you have passed away. You will have no further need for them and I promise, you won’t even notice they are gone. How do you feel when you have to wait for something you really, really want? What if it was something you couldn’t live without? Nearly 80,000 Americans are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. Hundreds of thousands more would benefit from a life enhancing tissue transplant. Each day, averages of 75 people receive organ transplants. However, averages of 20 people die each day waiting for transplants that can't take place because of the shortage of donated organs. Every eleven minutes another name is added to an organ......

Join Bbb to Attract Substantially Donors

...ensure donors’ confidence. This memo will analyze the reasons why several Muslim Charities choose BBB Wise Giving Alliance instead of CPA firms, and the differences between an audit and a review of financial statements. Lastly, I will show other benefits from the BBB certification process. Reasons for choosing BBB Wise Giving Alliance After the terrorist attacks of September 11st in 2001, the donation for Muslim charities dropped substantially. In order to enhance donors’ confidence, there are seven Muslim charities that have turned to Better Business Bureau (BBB) to examine and verify their performance. For charities, BBB Wise Giving Alliance is a great place to earn more trust from donors. After meeting the 20 standards for charity accountability, which includes the basic information of charities and the criteria and procedures of the alliance, charities become qualified to be members of the alliance. To be a member means the charity has been approved and owns more creditability. In addition, compared to the independent CPA firms, which only use financial statements to provide auditing service, Better Business Bureau does assurance service, which includes not only financial information, but also non-financial information such as risk analysis, control processes and business performance. By doing assurance service, information would be valid and transparent, which efficiently mitigates the information risk and settles donors’ fears that donors may have. Donors want......

Building Relationships with Donors

...with Donors A Checklist for Creating a Proactive-Relationship Development Process July 2011 Not-for-profit organizations depend on the financial support of individuals and corporate donors, and whether you realize it or not, a pledge can be the beginning of a long-term relationship with your organization. Or, as Humphrey Bogart so eloquently put it, a donation to support your cause can be "the start of a beautiful friendship." Unfortunately, many organizations struggle to find the time to establish relationships with donors. Phone calls, people dropping by, employee issues, and e-mails seem like a giant time-sucking machine that descends from the ceiling in your office and vacuums the life out of your day. With corporate and individual donors struggling financially, building relationships with your supporters has never been more important. Here are some tips for building highly effective relationships with your support base. Treat the following suggestions as a checklist to see how your organization is doing on the proactive-relationship development front: * After you receive a donation, reach out to the donor (if you'd like help writing scripts to help you do this, e-mail me atkevin@notforprofitgroup.com). Make it clear how much you appreciate his/her/their generosity and support. Sometimes a simple "thank you" goes a long way toward securing another gift. * Be direct, but honest. A pledge drive or capital campaign is the most obvious way that potential donors......

Organ Donor

...donation, you can help save the live of many people all over the world. One person who donates organs (hearts, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestines) can save up to ten lives, while a tissue donor (corneas, bone, skin, heart valves, tendons, veins, etc.) can improve 12 or more lives by restoring eyesight, helping fight infections in burn patients and preventing the loss of mobility and disability. When asked if they would like to become organ donors, many people ask themselves "Why should I donate my organs? What are the benefits? " For many people the topic of organ donation can be a touchy one. Many people have religious beliefs against the practice, or apply to certain conspiracy theories that put forth horror stories about organs being taken from patients who would have otherwise survived. Despite these concerns, the fact Less than 50% of the patients who are on waiting lists for organs donated by donors will ever receive the organs they need to survive. Why ? Because there are not enough organs available only 50% of our nation's population sign up to donate their organs after they die. We still need a lot more donors. Every person who becomes an organ donor has the potential to save one or more of these people's lives. Over 1500 of the people waiting for organ donors every year are children much younger than you and me . Over half of these children will die before an organ becomes available for them. You could save these children's lives at not tangible......

Become an Organ Donor

...Become an Organ Donor “Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep (Sandbury, n.d.).” By this time tomorrow, 12 people in America who are alive right now will be dead. Not because they were in a car wreck, Not because they were gunned down, Not because their time had come, not even because they were not in the hospital, but simply because they could not be given a life-saving transplant in time. 12 people will die because the organ transplant they need will not be possible. Money is not the issue here, nor is scarcity. Each day, there are more than enough potential donors who pass away who could meet all the needs of people on the waiting list. The problem is those potential donors die without leaving instructions that they are prepared to help someone live after them. And this is an issue on an enormous scale. Currently, nearly 60,000 Americans are waiting for a life saving organ transplant. Hundreds of thousands more would benefit from a life enhancing tissue transplant. And yet every day 12 people will die while awaiting a transplant. And every 16 minutes another name is added to the waiting list. Here is the real tragedy: It truly is so easy to fix this problem. Fortunately, there is an amazing network across the United States that links hospitals with one another and can match donors with potential patients. In addition, there is another reliable and sophisticated organizations running like the United Network for Organ Sharing......

Giovanni Di Paolo: Crucifixion with Donor

...Crucifixion with Donor illustrates hierarchy. The height of the figures themselves represent the different social classes within society. Jesus is the tallest figure, towering above the others making Him the most important figure of the painting.He represents the government. He rules over a group of people, has the power to do anything He pleases, and is treated with the utmost respect by those that agree with Him. The Virgin Mary, the second tallest figure in the painting represents the upper class. She has the closest connection to Jesus, (remembering He’s our government) and can have almost anything she wants by way of her relationship to Him, similar to how the people of the upper class are exempt from paying most taxes. Just as the government officials are treated similar those in the upper class, Jesus and Mary are treated similar. They both receive respect and are looked to for guidance from the rest of society. St. John represents the upper middle class and the middle class. He spends most of his time supporting Jesus and his teachings, just as the middle classes spend most of their earnings paying taxes to fund government expenses. Mary Magdalene is the fourth tallest figure and she represents the working class. She depends on Jesus for guidance in her “new” life, but has learned how not to live her life. The people of the working class depend on the government for minor things like rights to form unions, but overall they can support themselves.The Donor, the......

Why not consider the resolution of giving the gift of life by becoming an organ donor? According to the Mayo Clinic, “over 100,000 people in the United States are waiting for an organ donation.

It is a sensitive subject matter people prefer not to think about, let alone discuss with their families and friends. However, everyone should take the time to discuss the importance of, “how can I help others if I were to die? Various questions should be asked: Why should I donate my organs? What are the benefits? Are there any reasons not to? What happens to me? These are excellent questions that can be answered by viewing the OrganDonor.gov website.

Some of these fears include: the hospital staff won’t work as hard to save my life, maybe I......

Donors

...reasons for the continual growth of DonorsChoose, three major factors are: stimulating donor interest and securing contributions often repeated contributions from the same donors; arousing staffers’ motivation but doing so in a very cost effective manner; and maintaining uncompromising integrity. Stimulating Donor Interest and Securing Contributions People often become interested in DonorsChoose and subsequently become donors because they can support, in an affordable way, educational projects that resonate with them and they can be assured that their donations are making a meaningful difference. “People always have had the option of donating to education causes, but the real appeal of DonorsChoose is [the] projects’ narrow focus.”26 DonorsChoose.org “put[s] donors squarely in charge and give[s] them plenty of options. The proposals are written by the teachers themselves, explaining the students’ needs and what kind of impact they expect from the project. Then donors are put in control: they pick the project they like the most. Finally, every donor gets a package of thank-you letters from students and pictures of the kids reading the donated books”27 or using the donated supplies or engaging in the supported activities. Many of these donations are of quite modest amounts yet taken together they fund projects that make an educational difference for many public school children. A donor “can pick a classroom project to fund with as little as $1, [and they can......

Health Service

...HEALTH SERVICE DELIVERY MODULE 8.1 Overview This chapter presents the health delivery module of the assessment. Section 8.1 defines health service delivery and its key components. Section 8.2 provides guidelines on preparing a profile of health service delivery for the country of interest, including instructions on how to customize the profile for country-specific aspects of the health delivery process. Section 8.3 presents the indicator-based assessment, including detailed descriptions of the indicators. Section 8.4 discusses how to summarize the findings and develop recommendations. 8.1.1 What Is Health Service Delivery? The World Health Organization (WHO) defines service delivery as the way inputs are combined to allow the delivery of a series of interventions or health actions (WHO 2001b). As noted in the World Health Report 2000, “the service provision function [of the health system] is the most familiar; the entire health system is often identified with just service delivery.” The report states that service provision, or service delivery is the chief function the health system needs to perform (WHO 2000). As such, Figure 8.1 (see also Chapter 1, Figure 1.1) shows the relationship between service delivery and the other modules of this health systems assessment and their relationship with health system objectives. Because of the limited time to conduct this assessment, more emphasis will be placed on personal health (as opposed to public health) services and service......

Ethics: Recipients vs. Donors

...To: The Board of Transplantation Recipients and Donors From: Beth Lara, Lead Surgeon, MD. Subject: Transplantation Recipients Date: February 8, 2015 Purpose: The purpose of this memo today is how I, Beth Lara MD. Leading Surgeon of this council, will decide which patient will receive this heart transplant that has just recently become available. I will discuss and decide which patient I believe out of the three will be getting this transplant based on an utilitarian decision making process. I will discuss the different factors which helped me come to my decision and I will do my very best on communicating my decision as well as how I arrived there. Thank You. Summary: Here is the summary, briefly, of the three candidates that will be involved in this particular transplant case. First we have Jerry. Jerry is a 55 yr. old husband and father of 3. He supports his family by managing a carpet business in which he is nearly 5 years from retirement with the business.

Jerry needs this transplant to be to be able to continue to provide for his family.

Organ Donor

...------------------------------------------------- Reasons to be an Organ Donor Nina Boswell/2A There are many reasons to become an organ donor. I will tell you three that I think are most important. Organ donors can save many lives. There is an organ shortage. You can give hope to those who need organs. Save lives Donating your organs you can save up to eight lives. You can give your tissue and organs to those who need it most. Hundreds of people are saved by people who choose to be an organ donor.

Give Hope When your organs are donated you give hope to the people who you give your donations to. They are very grateful that they may live on and have a new life to live to their fullest. They become a part of your family. Hope is what everyone needs while they wait on the appropriate organs for their needs.

Aid Donors

...Chapter 1-Introduction The motive of donor nations for administering foreign aid has unfolded over time. Over the past 100 years, foreign aid structures that began with European colonialism have become tied to shifting economic and political interests, as well as growing humanitarian movement (Phillips, 2013). This process began mainly after World War I when developed countries saw that less developed countries were in dire need of development assistance. Therefore, they started to aid these countries in order to catch-up on western countries by providing capital and the technological know-how needed. Since then there has been a shift of focus of aid donors from the original developmental aspects to politically influenced strategies. (Deaton, 2015) argued in his book The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality, that aid does not work, and that it can accelerate corruption and keep bad leaders in power. However, many prominent scholars viewed his work on aid puzzling and deemed inconclusive because of the different uses and impacts aid has on different recipient countries (Radelet, 2015). Although extensive research has been conducted in how aid is given and if aid works, little has been done to understand the motives and determinates behind donor countries; thus, how they motivate aid allocation. Guidelines are drawn up by the donor country to ensure that the funds are used accordingly but governments generally give foreign aid for three main purposes;......

Our choice of public service for discussion shall be centered on the Ghana immigration service: The Ghana immigration service is mandated Under PNDC Law 226 (1989) and are granted the sole mandate to regulate and monitor the entry, residence, employment and the exit of foreigners in Ghana. This mandate was renewed and expanded through the passage of the Immigration Act, 2000 in the administration and governance of their operations they are subject to the laws of the land. Their operational duties are governed or influenced by thirteen domestic legal instruments. They are also subject to interpretations of the numerous international conventions, protocols, directives and accords which the state has ratified. Their mission statement is to build a stronger and better Ghana by operating fair but firm immigration controls that regulates and facilitates the movement of people through Ghana’s borders and efficient, effective residence and work permit systems that meet the social and economic needs of the country. But currently the services lack a migration policy. The basic assumption has been that Ghana is a nation of emigration, whereas in fact it has become a nation absorbing large-scale immigration beyond the scope of controlling legislation to manage. Ghana has limited coherence in its immigration law. It lacks vision and long-term goals and has limited......
