Overview of Resistance Welding
In simplest terms, welding is a process by which two or more pieces of metal are joined by applying heat and pressure. Back in the good old days, blacksmiths and other crafty people would heat metals in a furnace and then weld them by hammering the red-hot metals together. By hammering the metals as they cooled, the weld would be made stronger. This heating-and-hammering method is known as forge welding. While forge welding worked quite well for most of the welding done back then, today's welding requirements are a bit more advanced. After all, it would be pretty difficult to heat all the metal needed to build an automobile in a big factory furnace and expect workers to hammer together each specific part used in the manufacturing process. We'd all still be riding horses to work!
Fortunately, there are always a handful of brilliant people throughout history who are…...

Incident Reports and Errors in Health Care

...Marilyn Lewis HSA 300 November 12, 2013 Incident Reports and Errors in Health Care Millions of people are injured yearly due to medical errors in the health care industry. Moreover, with the many errors that exist, it can cost billions of dollars each year increasing health costs. There are many examples of medical errors that take place within hospitals, but the most common and frequent error is due to medications. Many people believe medication errors are the result of abbreviations handwritten by physicians. Medical errors are a global issue and although, it is the most common, it can be the most preventable (Null et al. 2009, 56) As stated in “Death by medicine”, it found that 18-28% of people who were recently ill had suffered from a medical or drug error in the previous two years (Null et al.2009, 48). The affects of these errors lead to lost wages or productivity cost of employees. A medication error can easily take place if correct measures are not followed. For example, administering the incorrect medication or dosage amount to the wrong patient can be of great concern, which can result in long term injuries based on the depth of which the error resulted from. According to the American Association for Justice, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) preventable medical errors study estimated that at least 98,000 people die yearly totaling 29 billion dollars, which could have been prevented ( In the past, errors were revealed primarily......

It was April 27, 1965 on Bay Street the main thoroughfare in Nassau. Thousands of us protesters and supporters were outside protesting that the government should listen to the voice of the people.

Pindling, who was inside of the House telling the House that the governing white merchant known as the Bay Street Boys would not listen to the voice of the people and reasoning with regard to the Boundaries Commission report for that year. After the House denied the motion formed by the PLP to have the constituencies redrawn under the United Nations, Lynden Pindling publicly declared that the Bay Street politicians as dictators. The distribution of seats in favor of the Family Islands was not acceptable to the PLP when the majority of the population lived in New Providence. Before Mr. Pindling went inside, it was said that he was scared to go in and do what he did, so much that he needed coaxing from Sir Milo Butler to go ahead with the plan. Inside we could hear Mr. Pindling accusing the ruling United Bahamian Party of dividing some areas into political units to give their group an unfair advantage. Mr. Pindling took the ceremonial mace and tossed it out of the......

Purpose To assure that all incidents not consistent with the routine operations of the hospital or the routine care of a particular patient are reported to the quality management department so that immediate attention and responses can be given to individual occurrences. Statistics can then be derived from the collective number of incidents reported and will serve as a basis for adverse patient trends, patient safety issues, or other risks and hazards to be identified, and risk reduction programs implemented. In order to promote a culture that promotes patient safety, the hospital’s Incident Reporting Policy is based upon a foundation of nonpunitive approach to incident/occurrence reporting. The hospital leadership will encourage open and honest reporting of injuries and hazards to patients, visitors and staff, this process will be nonpunitive in nature for all persons reporting incidents throughout the organization. Incidence/occurrence investigations will be viewed as an opportunity for education/process improvement, and will focus on processes and systems, rather than human error. Disciplinary action will be limited to only those employees who engage in willful or malicious misconduct, or those occurrences in which the employee failed to report an incident or hazard to patients in a timely manner.

Major Incidents

...In this report I am going to analyse the importance of inter-agency emergency planning for major incidents It is very important that public services work together and plan how to deal with major incidents, because it makes their job more efficient. They can get the job done quicker, because they know their roles and responsibilities, so not messing around, but doing their duties and run smoothly at the scene. Planning gives them opportunity to get more training so they will know their roles even better so it makes their job easier and safer as they will get some experience in some kind of situations. They will have knowledge how it could look in real major incident, so they would not get stressed so much if they are newly employed. Also it saves some money when dealing with major incidents as they will be better in their roles, because of training through planning. Another benefit is that because of planning, they would know what equipment they are responsible for and they will bring it to the scene so when it will be needed, they will have it. The first responding agency is always Police and they are responsible for sending other agencies to the scene, protecting the scene – setting cordons around. Inner cordon - operational command – officers that deals with the incident at the scene. Outer cordon - tactical command - creates tactics for operational command how to deal with the incident. Lack of organisations means that they would not be sure what their roles are, they......

Critical Incident

...Critical Incident: Late Cardizem Drip Salomon Rivas Purdue University Calumet NUR 48200-09 Critical Incident: Late Cardizem Drip The incident I will be writing this paper about actually just happened at my new job. I received my nursing degree last March and started working in LTC last summer. After 6 months experience, I was lucky enough to get hired as a new nurse on a telemetry/ step down ICU floor. I started this position on January 5, 2015 and will be finishing my one to one orientation next week. As the weeks have passed and my patient load has picked up, I have been able to work more and more independently while my preceptor attends to other patients or matters. If all I had to do was assess, pass medications and chart, I would be fine but as we all know, critical thinking has to prevail and careful watch has to be of utmost importance for such sick patients. On the night of the near critical incident, I was taking care of 6 patients. It was the very beginning of the shift and I was getting report as my preceptor was attending to a patient that was crashing fast. She told me to just continue with report and start my night and she would fill me in later as this patient had to be sent to the ICU. I finished getting report on my 5 patients and was sitting down to organize my night when my preceptor came over to me and asked what I was told in report. When I got to the new admit that had just come to the floor......

Incident Report

...Petronas' venture into the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry more than three decades ago marked Malaysia's entry into the modern gas era. When substantial gas reserves were discovered in Sarawak's Central Luconia basin in the 1970's, it was hoped that monetising this resource would bring revenue and foreign exchange needed to spearhead Malaysia's socio economic development and nation building. It was also realised then that Malaysia's proximity to industrialised Japan, opened the opportunity for PETRONAS to tap into an important energy market in need of a cost effective, efficient and cleaner energy resource. PETRONAS,Shell BV and Mitsubishi held talks which resulted in the birth of a partnership to undertake Malaysia's first LNG project, realised through the incorporation of Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd or MLNG on 14 June 1978. The MLNG project was Malaysia's largest and most ambitious industrial undertaking at the time and the Malaysian Government established a special LNG task force to see to its successful completion. The MLNG project at that time was also the nation's single largest investment in manufacturing and required what was considered a quantum leap in technology and knowledge acquisition. Beyond the construction of the plant, the MLNG project also involved the construction of a jetty, the acquisition of LNG carriers, the establishment of infrastructure and amenities and the training of human resource. Through hard work and perseverance, the partners in the initial...
