Good morning to the staff of , Last Resort. My name is Dr. Kimberly T Cunningham. Today I have come to speak with you all about Mrsa. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a bacterium responsible for many of our hard to treat infections in humans. It is an bacteria that is hard to treat because it has become resistant to many of the commonly used antibiotics (web md). This bacteria can cause infection to many of the different parts of the human body. Staphylococcus aureus is also known as staph.

Staph, can cause a range of skin infections, from small to large. These infections can be somrthind simple a common as a boil, or much more complex as being in the bloodstream on in wounds. Many people has staph bactreia that is found in the nose. Stach become a problem once it is transmitted into our bloodstream.

Staph can be very harmful in a long term care facility. One to three million infections orrur every year in these type of facliticies. Many of the infections cause prolong hospitalizations and death. We want to protect and help our residents from acquiring Mrsa. In prevention of Staph infections there are simple thing we can do to help our community of elderly patients healthy.

Hand washing is the most effective way to prevent staph infection. As Staff members we should always wash our hand prior to touching a resident. A resident that that may have any open wounds or cuts, or any type of infected drainage gloves should be used. Hand washing should consists of vigorlouly washing the whole hand and inbetween the fingers with soap for at least 25 minuntes. Hand washing should also be used when leaving a resident room. Basically handwashing should be used before and after interacting with our residents and before caring for the next resident. If the idea soap and water is not avialible then cleaning yor hand with an alcohol based hand sanitizer is…...

...Non-Functional Testing and Security Testing in Mobile Application Development Abstract Smart-phones have become part of human life. As smartphones become more powerful and usage rises, Smartphone makers have a much wider range of innovation possibilities than their PC counterparts. The personal nature and pocket size of mobile phones and their potential offer a wide scope for developing distinctive handset models targeted at a specific segment of the smart-phone market. The mobile application market’s growth is driven by the widespread push of advanced handset capabilities by the mobile industry and the increasingly-connected global consumer base. Progress of network technologies, restructuring of revenue-sharing pattern, lowering of mobile data usage cost, growing adoption of smart phones, and increase in application usability have contributed to the growth of mobile application adoption globally. This trend has led to substantial surge in the dependence and usage of the mobile Internet, specifically mobile applications. Mobile Application Development is the method by which application software is produced for low power handling devices, mobile devices, and other small digital equipment. As this technological development continues to gain momentum, it's quickly turning into one of the most powerful industries in the world. Majority of the mobile application testers tend to focus more on testing the product against client requirements – Functional testing and pay......

Grievance Handling

...Grievance Handling Grievance is defined as ‘cause for complaint or annoyance’. Before the machine age, when a handful of workers worked directly for an employer, grievance handling was a one-step procedure : the worker directly approached his boss who gave a decision on the issue. The machine age has introduced a vast echelon of intermediary supervision between the principal employer and the rank-and-file worker. Increase in the number of workers and supervisors in a complicated industrial unit, has led to an increased number of grievances of varying types at different levels. No longer can an employer nonchalantly brush aside the problem of handling grievances as a trivial function. Those who have done so have reaped the whirlwind. A grievance is the embryo of more serious trouble to come, and whether real or imagincary, it is a canker in the organisation and calls for prompt and effective measures. If it is real, the need for curative action is obvious; if it is imaginary, the need to explain and clear up the atmosphere is all the more imperative. Prompt and effective handing of grievances is the key to industrial peace. In our country particularly, where illiteracy is high and people from villagers seek employment in the laien atmosphere of an industrial unit, grievances are many and varied. Operations, procedures and supervisory techniques are not easily understood and lead to grievances. An induction programme coupled with a well understood and sound grievance......

Safe Patient Handling & Mobility

...Safe Handling and Mobility Program Proposal for Change Christy Creighton UNIV OF PHOENIX HCS/587 Virginia Mapes March 10, 2014 Implementation of a Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Program Proposal The purpose of this paper is to propose a Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SHPM) program at Doctor’s Hospital. The need for this program will be proven through evidenced based research. According to the American Nurses Association and their position statement, “Elimination of Manuel Patient Handling to Prevent Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders.” Risks of musculoskeletal injury due to manual lifting techniques affects nurses working in any specialty area (ANA 2003). The ANA conducted it's own Health and Safety Survey of nurses in 2011, in which 62% of the more than 4.600 respondents indicated that suffering a disabling musculoskeletal injury was one of their top three safety concerns. The survey also showed that 8 of 10 nurses worked despite experiencing frequent musculoskeletal pain and that 13% were injured three or more times on the job within a year (ANA 2011). This proposal of implementing a Safe Patient and Handling Mobility program will explore the organizational and individual barriers to implementation and identify factors that might influence implementation. Factors influencing organizational readiness will be addressed for this proposed change as well as internal and external resources available to support this initiative. A theoretical model will...

...consists of three components: an envelope, a set of encoding rules, and a convention for representing remote procedure calls. Unless experience with SOAP is a direct requirement for the open position, knowing the specifics of the protocol or how it can be used in conjunction with HTTP is not as important as identifying it as a natural application of XML. 6. Walk through the steps necessary to parse XML documents? Superficially, this is a fairly basic question. However, the point is not to determine whether candidates understand the concept of a parser but rather have them walk through the process of parsing XML documents step-by-step. Determining whether a non-validating or validating parser is needed, choosing the appropriate parser and handling errors are all important aspects to this process that should be included in the candidate's response. 7. Give some examples of XML DTD's or schemas that you have worked with. Although XML does not require data to be validated against a DTD, many of the benefits of using the technology are derived from being able to validate XML documents against business or technical architecture rules. Polling for the list of DTD's that developers have worked with provides insight to their general exposure to the technology. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of several of the commonly used DTD's such as DITA, DocBook, FpML, ebML, HRML and RDF, as well as experience designing a custom DTD for a particular project where no standard......

Material Handling

...How to solve the limitations of the current system. Material handling equipment is about roles in moving, storage, and control of the goods. The categories of material handling are traditional and modern. 1. Traditional (i) Used human power (ii) Not value adding (iii) Minimize used of since it depend on the capabilities of the human to handle the risk 2. Modern (i) Used robotic system/ computerise system (ii) Adding value (iii) Maximize flexibility of used Detection systems and RFID-based automated material handling is now available and common to many of these industries are particularly flatbed conveyor. MHS based flatbed conveyor systems bring themselves to control complexity, additional storage equipment such as baskets and trays and additional user activity. The meat processing industry in the UK has refused to adopt the system because of the cost of installation if there is no commercial benefit in a financial decline through food fear accompanied by potential incompatibility between the issues of system reliability and the imposition of additional stress operator. Based on time constraints, the research has been conducted on the MHS can solve the limitations of the current system. Therefore, a consortium project called Meatract, was established to research and develop novel MHS automatically detect and track cuts in the......

...occupational setting, it can be detrimental to an individuals career path due to an employer having record of an individuals mental health on file which could cause an individual to lose their job due to an employer viewing an individual as being a risk. Though the DASS can have negative impact on an individual career, it can also be beneficial as well especially if the profession that it is being used in is a high stress job. Jobs such as those found in the various branches of the military or other government positions may require an individual to go through testing of their mental health so as to assess whether or not the individual would be capable of effectively performing their duties since an individual whom has high levels of depression, anxiety, and/or stress can prove to be hazards on the job. In an academic setting, the DASS can be effective when used with children so as to be able to see if a child is capable of handling the requirements of their educational course or if they should be given extra attention so as to better absorb the materials in which they are to learn....
