Venomous Snakes Most of the time people can’t really tell the difference between poisonous snakes and those that are not poisonous. A lot of people think that every snake they encounter can kill you. There are only 4 types of poisonous snakes that are found in the United States. Cottonmouths, Rattle snakes, Copperheads, and Coral snakes are the 4 types that are venomous. Cotton mouths have elliptical eyes (rounded eyes), and range in color from black to green. They have white strips along the side of their heads. The majority of them live around or in water. They often emerge at sunset to warm themselves on warm ground and then become very active throughout the night. If you have a lake around your neighborhood or backward, becareful. The young cotton mouths usually have a yellow bright tail. Cottonmouths sit with their mouth open when a human comes near. These types of snakes like to stay by themselves so if you see multiple of snakes just hanging out peacefully it is most likely not a cottonmouth. This species is usually confused with a Copper head snake. If you here a rattle like sound in the middle of the jungle or somewhere in your back yard while gardening it’s most likely to be a Rattle snake. A rattle snake has a rattle on its tale. It shakes its tale when it feels threaten so if you here loudly then you are pretty close to one. Their heads are shaped in a triangular head and also have elliptical eyes shaped like a cat. I believe rattle snakes are the ones with the biggest fangs so you really don’t want to get bitten by one of these. There not as deadly as we think people don’t really die from the venom. As long as it’s treated promptly then you should be fine. Copper heads have a similar shape to cotton mouths but are much brighter. There colors range from coppery brown to bright orange to silver pink and peach. Young ones also have a yellow…...

...recovery back in to the market. Living in California I have seen businesses fail and thrive all because of many different factors. One market that has caught my attention is the legalization of marijuana. In July of 2012 City of Los Angeles put a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries. Now business owners, patients, and tax dollars are facing uncertainties for the future of medical marijuana and marijuana in general. As a business student and business owner, I see an opportunity for California to take control of this controversial issue and finally deal with it. According to the LA Times article, the new ban imposed might not even be legal. This ban will put many businesses "Caregivers" out of business essentially cutting millions in revenue from taxes. Anita Gore, a California board spokesman, stated " tax authorities estimate that the state currently collects $58 million to $105 million in sales taxes on $700 to $1.3 billion in annual retail sales of medical marijuana." With our state already feeling the economical crunch, this measure will hurt us even more. Now again this is just revenue from Medical marijuana, if California legalizes marijuana in general these numbers would jump tremendously. There is already a market for medical marijuana, the City of Los Angeles and California needs to regulate the sales in order to receive the appropriate sales tax, just like alcohol and cigarettes. The State and even the Country can benefit tremendously from taxes alone.......

... Take for example California and its MediCal program; only 54% of doctors in California accept MediCal at all and half of that are accepting new patients. California and many other states pay doctors only 30 to 40 percent of what they would normally receive for a given service. This has forced fewer and fewer doctors to accept Medicaid. In his writings on Medicaid, Barr writes “making primary care more available to Medicaid recipients will help to decrease the use of emergency rooms and will lower the overall cost of care.” Making more primary care physicians available should be the focus of the already allocated funds instead of covering an expansion of those covered under Medicaid. The funds should instead be used to help subsidize medical school and residency for those who want to become primary care physicians rather than specialists. This will help increase the amount of students wanting to be primary care physicians and ease the burden of having more people insured overall. If the government helps pay for the education of these individuals the overall cost of their education will drop drastically. It can be assumed they would then be less likely to charge such high prices to be seen and as a result, overall healthcare costs would also begin to fall. The other government funded healthcare program (Medicare) has been doing this very thing since 1983—Medicare started using its Part A funds in 1983 to pay for graduate medical education (GME). This significantly......

...Medical Billing Process There are several different steps in the medical billing process that have to be followed. Each step is very unique and should be followed accordingly. The first step in the medical billing process is to pre-register all patients. This process requires you to schedule patients for new treatment. You are also required to update appointments for new and old patients. Upon preregistration it is also your job to collect both demographic and all of the patients insurance information. Patients have to provide their reason for the desired appointment so that proper treatment can be scheduled and provided. The next step in the medical billing process is to establish financial responsibility. During this process, determining if an insured patient has enough coverage for the type of visit is determined. Patients will be asked a series of questions about the type of insurance they have and the healthcare facility will of course run the insurance to see if it will pay for the visit and the service. If certain services are not covered by the patients insurance, then the patient will be informed and further actions will be taken. It is very important that the financial information is taken upfront. I say this because patients who do not have the appropriate health insurance will be treated and in the end cannot pay, causing the healthcare facility to lose money. The third step in the medical billing process is to check in patients. This step applies to patients...

...instead of electronic more than likely have less holding space for the medical records while medium and large facilities may have more holding stations, but now usually have less than a small facility does because they more electronic records than paper. Question seven, if paper records: Is there a need to chart the circulation of files from one location to another, so that your staff knows where files are kept? What I can conclude form this question is that no matter what size facility the staff is working in, there should be some sort of organization process or filing system, either alphabetical or numerical order of the patient’s medical records and they should not have to be circulated from one location to the next so that each staff member knows where it is located. In question nine, what can cause the biggest problem for records management if it isn’t done right? I also can conclude from this question looking at the whole picture will all the different size facilities. Simply in any facility size if the records management is not done correctly, it can cause confusing and a hectic work environment when having to look for patient’s medical records. No matter the size of the facility no having a proper routine for the medical records to be filed properly can cause chaos, so there is really no difference. Question ten asks, what measures in terms of physical storage are taken to ensure the privacy of the medical record? Since smaller facilities tend to lean more towards......

...weather it is in the health care industry or any other office setting. Before a health care worker performs any medical procedure or care task with a patient, it's important they use verbal communication to inform the patient. This allows the patient to know what to expect. Verbal communication can also be used by the patient to inform the health care worker how they are feeling, what concerns they have and any other questions the patient may have. Non-verbal communication in the health care setting comes from eyes, hands and other parts of the body. Providing eye contact, not crossing the arms and leaning in when talking to a patient are non-verbal ways to communicate you care. Non-verbal communication is usually understood as the process of sending and receiving wordless message. Types of non-verbal communication are touching and eye contact as well as body language. Touches can be defined in communication as a handshake or a high five or a shoulder pat. Eye contact and facial expression helps indicate important social and emotional information. Body language is particularly important in group communication. It can convey attitudes, emotions, and feelings to someone who knows what to look for. Crossing your arms is a sign that your unconsciously shutting someone out. It’s similar to keeping someone at arm’s length and not allowing them to get closer to you. In the medical profession doctors can pick up on these signs. The care of patients now almost inevitably seems......

...Maria Hernandez Mod 170 Ms. Lily Anesthesiology An anesthesiologist is a medical doctor who cares for a patient before, during and immediately following a surgical or medical procedure by administering the appropriate anesthesia and monitoring the patient for reactions and complications, and to ensure comfort and manage pain. Some of the primary responsibilities of an anesthesiologist include examining the patient to determine the type of anesthetic needed, communicating all relevant information to the appropriate medical practitioners, and administering local, intravenous, or spinal anesthetic to the patient. Anesthesiologists meet with the patient prior to the surgical procedure to evaluate their condition and to review their medical history, they will explain the procedure to the patient so that they know what to expect. During surgery, an anesthesiologist carefully monitors the patient's vital signs—including heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, breathing, and kidney function—and adjusts anesthetics as needed. When surgery is finished, the recovery phase begins. The anesthesiologist administers medications to reverse the effects of the anesthetic, returning the patient to consciousness if a general anesthetic has been used. After surgery, patients are moved to a recovery room, where the anesthesiologist is still responsible for the patient's vital functions. In the recovery room, nurses and other specially trained staff closely monitor the patient under the......

...had a tracheotomy tube inserted during surgery, which made him unable to speak and required him to be suctioned every four hours. A day after arrival at the nursing home they issued a new medical order that the patient be suction once a shift and as needed, which was vastly different than the hospitals orders. During his stay he was visited by a close friend, Stephen Szczuvelek. The patient reached out to him and asked for his help by the use of a note stating that he had not been suctioned and needed to be suctioned immediately. His friend pushed the nurses’ call button and when he did not receive a response for over an hour went looking for a nurse. The nurse directed him to a conference room to talk to a social worker. Mr. Szczuvelek showed her the note from the patient and she assured him that the patient would be assisted. However, when he returned to the patient’s room he asked the nurse to suction the patient, but she replied that she already did. Mr. Burns shook his head no, so Mr. Szczuvelek confronted the nurse, who then replied that it was the doctor’s orders that the patient not be suctioned. After further prodding from Mr. Szczuvelek the nurse stated “I don’t have to take this crap” and left the room. The patient was unresponsive the next day and was rushed to Somerset Medical Center. Mr. Szczuvelek visited the patient in the emergency room and was informed by a nurse that the patient was not suctioned at the nursing home because there was a fire drill the......

...Immediately After Death Immediately after someone dies, several things need to happen. First, a medical professional will need to fill out the Pronouncement of Death form. Then arrangements will have to be made to move the body from its place of death. Finally, a death registration form must be completed and filed with the county in which the person died. And, if the person dies out of state (away from their home) or out of the country there are additional steps that will need to be taken. Pronouncement of death and transportation Registration of the death and death certificates Death out of state Death out of the country Transporting ashes Pronouncement of death and transportation Arrangements will need to be made to transport the body to a mortuary, crematory or the coroner’s office unless there is going to be a home burial service. However, before the body can be moved anywhere, a medical professional will need to complete a Pronouncement of Death form. The date and time on the form will become the official time of death. If it appears that the death was not from natural causes, the Coroner’s office will be contacted to see if an autopsy needs to be done. If the death occurs in a hospital: Someone at the hospital will complete the Prouncement of Death form.
