All nurses begin with the strong intention to improve conditions within health care facilities and thus improve the outcomes associated. We often think of this notion as a way of dirty living and unsanitary conditions. This does not only apply to the hygiene concerns but emotional concerns as well. When one walks into a hospital and hands over the responsibility of their livelihood bad safety, their last concern may be that the professional personnel treating them may not be qualified for the job.

Structural indicators have one consider not only the demand and need for appropriate staff is adequate but also that the education is up to par for those individuals (Savitz, 2005). Do these professionals hold the degree but not the special certification to preform a specific task or duty? In this scenario, it begs to differ as to why the CNA came to remove the restraints. Was this a direct command from the RN? Is the RN burned out and understaffed causing the CNA to be the only one available to respond to this patients needs? In addition, this CNA is preforming an assessment of a potential skin breakdown/ulcer and furthermore educated the patient's family on the matter. It does not seem clear that the RN assigned to patient is in full communication and authority with the health care team causing delays or misses in identifying and treating a problem.

This sheds light on process indicators which include recognition, assessment, and nursing intervention methods (Savitz, 2005). This scenario includes several situations where negative physical and emotional problems were arising without proper identification and intervention. All of which contribute to a negative outcome. Outcome indicators here leave the quality and quantity of nursing care in question. The patient is most likely suffering from a pressure ulcer that will go without being addressed and undoubtedly…...

...Healthcare Utilization and Finance WGU Organizational Systems &Quality Leadership KOT1 Lynnell Fulkerson Healthcare Utilization and Finance Medicare A1. Medicare Part A Medicare Part A covers medically necessary services and supplies including hospitalization and skilled nursing facility (SNF) care. Mrs. Zwick spent five inpatient days in the hospital and 40 days in a SNF. Medicare Part A will cover 100% of the first 60 days of Mrs. Zwick’s hospital stay after she pays the $1,184 deductible. Because Mrs. Zwick spent at least three days as an inpatient in the hospital, and assuming that the skilled nursing facility Mrs. Zwick is admitted to is Medicare certified, Medicare Part A will pay for 100% of her first 20 days in SNF (2013 Medicare Costs, 2012). Medicare Part A also covers days 21- 100 in a SNF with a $148 per day co-pay, however, Mrs. Zwick had a hospital-acquired infection (HAI) of the urinary tract and was unable to participate in rehabilitation for 7 days. Medicare will not cover the costs of those 7 days in the SNF because in 2009 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) stopped paying for preventable conditions including hospital-acquired urinary tract infections (Paddock, 2007). The skilled nursing facility will not be reimbursed for the cost of care and services for that time. The additional time in the SNF, 13 days, will be covered by Medicare Part A except for the $148......

...IWT1 Task 1 Impressionism and Post Impressionism By WGU student In early 19th century, the French government controlled the academies and salons of paintings. The impressionism took place in second half of 19th century, which was results of French artists rejecting the traditional government sanctioned academic painting that was dominating their arts at the time. The first independent art exhibition was held in 1874 for one month. Few of the famous artists’ who participated and help organize this exhibition was Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renior, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro along with 25 other artists. They displayed approximately 165 paintings during this exhibit. This group of artists referred themselves as the Anonymous Society of Painters, Engravers, Sculptors, etc. The artists from Impressionism period intentionally painted which captured the nuances of light and beauty of natures. These artists were against painting a picture of moral messages, as the artists of past they mostly painted in studio. Impressionist had very firm understating of color theory, optics, nature of light, and optical mixing (created much more vivid colors in the eyes of the viewers). The invention of photography had profound influence on the artist of the day, the way they handle perspective in the relationship between subject matters in space. The invention of photography essentially freed these painters to become more abstract with their subject matter, they......

Cognitive/Intellectual Development is the ability to learn, reason, and analyze the fact that a process begins from infancy and progresses as the individual (Educational Psychology). Cognitive Development contains events that are logical, like thinking and remembering. Some factors remain the same throughout many of the theories on cognitive development. All theorists agree that people go through specific steps and/or stages of learning and understanding. Along with the fact that there are certain principles must be meet before learning can occur. There are many ideas and opinions that cognitive theorist have about the development of a person’s cognition. Two theorists that are commonly known in the field of cognitive development are Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky. These two theorists agree on the several concepts of cognitive development but differ on others, the most commonly agreed difference among all theorists involved in cognitive development is the simple yet complex question of how cognitive development occurs.

Viability of Product Gaia’s Organic Dog Treats is a small but rapidly growing business located in Atlanta, Georgia, which derives the majority of its income from the production and direct-to-consumer sale of organic, grain-free, gluten-free dog treats. Its two best-selling products are 100% organic meat jerky (no additives or other ingredients besides meat) and organic dog biscuits made of unique, non-grain ingredients and offered in distinctive shapes such as miniature cupcakes, pizzas, etc. The company is also developing ancillary products such as dog shampoo that leverage the brand and increase sales to its existing customer base. At present the company does not have an online strategy; it has only a single extremely basic web page referring customers to an email address. All sales are local and distribution is through breeder’s clubs, dog shows, farmer’s markets, and two small boutique-style retail stores catering to very high-wealth individuals. Although growth in the local market remains strong, the company is aware of the potential for eventual saturation. More importantly, it is clear based on the success of their existing product line that there is a tremendous opportunity to grow their sales by expanding beyond the Atlanta metropolitan region.

Even with the help of bank loans a sole proprietorship will still find it to be difficult to obtain sufficient funding.  GENERAL PARTNERSHIP A general partnership is a business that is made when more than two people join together and agree to share the profits and losses of a business. One advantage of a general partnership is that all of its profits and losses are not just pinned on one person. Management of the business is also equally split between all partners unless otherwise agreed upon. One disadvantage of a general partnership is that if one person dies or withdraws it can be very difficult to estimate the value of that person’s portion of the business. Another con is that each partner is equally liable for the others debts and or bad acts. • Liability: All partners are liable for any of the businesses acquired debts and losses. • Income taxes: Like a sole proprietorship, a general partnership must pay income tax on any business income. • Longevity or continuity: A separate agreement may allow the partnership to continue if a partner withdraws or dies, though in most cases the company will dissolve with the partner. • Control: All partners equally manage the general partnership, though other agreements can be drawn up in the form of a contract to change this. • Profit retention: In a general partnership, all profits are shared......

Task 1 Professinal Roles and Values

...Melonie Miller Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership Task 1 A: Delivering quality care is the priority of the nursing profession as an institution and in order to facilitate this, data driven indicators are employed to measure how effective the care environment is. These nursing sensitive indicators include complications such as urinary tract infection, patient falls, surgical complications, length of hospital stay, restraint prevalence, incidences of failure to rescue, patient satisfaction, pressure ulcers and nursing satisfaction. In the case of Mr. J, the demented rabbi, who as a nurse supervisor I am responsible for, nursing sensitive indicators are crucial in monitoring the level of care and making adjustments so that the patient will recover as quickly as possible. Modern nursing, aided by linear flowcharts uses the Pareto principle that states 80% of process or system problems come from 20% of the possible causal factors (Cherry, 2011). This means that by identifying the key and most obnoxious causal factors and focusing effort on relieving them, the problems can have viable solutions. An example of the need to focus on nursing sensitive indicators is the fact that restraints were used on the patient despite only having mild dementia and no previous incident as well as the restraints causing a pressure ulcer would indicate that the patient isn’t receiving the care he deserves. From these two metrics I would assign a CNA to watch over him periodically and......

...wrong. “Referent power is sometimes thought of as charisma, charm, admiration, or appeal. Referent power comes from one person liking and respecting another, and strongly identifying with that person in some way” (Referent Power, 2014). Implementation of referent power will take time in that development of trust in management from employees will not be an easy task. Likely a change in management or significant leadership training would be most helpful to implement this type of power within Paradigm Toys. In essence, the concept of referent power would be to ensure that employees respect and trust their leadership structure to ensure that when leaders are not available to make decisions, the same types of decisions will be made by employees. Decisions that will be positive for the organization and the quality of product will continue to improve. Again, this implementation will be difficult however not impossible. The implementation of referent leadership will bring about an understanding of influence over employees that positively helps develop the culture of wanting to develop and maintain a high quality product. This value of quality must take place over quantity for some time to ensure that employees move from the desire to meet quota to ensure job security and instead focus on a quality product with an eye on safety for the stakeholders. Primary and Secondary Stakeholders Primary stakeholders, those who benefit directly from the business activities of Paradigm......

The hospital I work for also provides emails, bulletin boards, and meetings on any changes or updates that will effect and implemented by nursing staff. Besides meeting my employers and state requirements, I am also currently a student to obtain a BSN in nursing. Part C. Four professional traits that can be seen in Americas Nursing Association Code of Ethics are: Leadership, communicative, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Leadership is an important trait as a nurse. A nurse should be able to delegate tasks and make decisions. Also, need to be able to communicate between the patient, staff, and family to provide continuity of care. Being knowledgeable is important to be able to provide the safest and most effective care to your patients. Continued education is an important part of staying knowledgeable in the field of nursing. Compassionate care provides dignity and integrity to the patient. Part D. Florence Nightingale’s created one of the first theories in nursing, on environmental adaptation.

...EGT Task 1 A. Profit maximization can be calculated from the following 2 approaches: 1. Total Revenue to Total Cost (TR/TC) approach a. Total revenue is calculated by multiplying price times quantity (TR = P x Q) b. Total cost can be calculated a variety of ways, i.e. fixed (TFC) and variable (TVC) costs and also capital and labor composition costs (TC = TFC + TVC) c. Profit is total revenue minus total cost (TR-TC) d. In order to maximize profit, need to find largest gap between total revenue and total cost (TR & TC) 2. Marginal revenue to marginal cost (MR/MC) approach a. Instead of looking for the largest gap in a profit maximization direction, you need to equate marginal revenue is equated to marginal cost (MR = MC) b. The term “Marginal” means next incremental unit c. Marginal revenue is the change that takes place in total revenue divided by the change in quantity (MR = ∆TR/∆Q) d. Marginal Cost is the change that occurs in the total cost divided by the change in quantity (MC = ∆TC/∆Q) B. The calculation used to determine marginal revenue is MR = ∆TR/∆Q, where MR = Marginal Revenue, ∆TR = Change in Total Revenue and ∆Q = Change in Quantity. 1. Marginal Revenue increases when Company A goes from producing no widgets to 1 widget. 2. Marginal Revenue decreases when Company A produces 2 or more additional widgets, which is indicative of a monopolistic market. 3. Marginal Revenue remains constant only when there is a perfect (pure)......

...Professional Roles and Values Project A. Regulatory agencies are government related agencies that are responsible for exercising authority in a supervisory capacity. One example of a regulatory agency is the State Board of Nursing, which is a government regulated agency. The State Board is responsible for the public health and welfare, by assuring that licensed nurses provide safe and competent care. Regulatory agencies, such as the Board of Nursing, regulate my practice by enforcing that Nurse Practice Acts are followed and they also outline standards for safe nursing practice. Another way the Board of Nursing helps regulate my practice is by enforcing continuation of education every year. (Regulatory Agency, 2015) Professional nursing organizations are usually voluntary and not government related. Some examples of the organizations include the American Nurses Association, which helps advance and protect the nursing profession, and the Emergency Nurses Association that helps define the future of emergency nursing. These type of organizations support my practice by allowing me to stay current in my profession and also allows me to network amongst my peers. (Role of Professional, 2015) B.

...Professional Role and Value Western Governors University Professional Role and Value Regulatory agencies are government agencies created to provide rules by defining laws, concepts and authorities. There are federal and state regulatory agencies with different levels of involvement and collaboration with professional associations. These government regulatory agencies are shaped by the assistance of associations with functional differences like the Board of Nursing (BRN) and Professional Nursing Organization (PNO). The Board of Nursing has the function of ensuring that the standard of practice in nursing is being followed and keeping the health care consumers safety as a priority. The board of registered nurses protects the patients by evaluating if nurses meet criteria before acquiring their nursing license by examination and also by reviewing unsafe practices by nurses. The Professional Nursing Organization on the other hand helps nurses to advance in their career by providing nursing memberships to associations where nurses can utilize updated evidence based nursing practices articles and journals as resources. The Professional Nursing Organization also advocates the code of ethical and principles of nursing by contributing to the development of policies and best nursing practices (Nursing World webpage). The code of ethics in nursing serves as a tool for nurses and nursing organizations. There are nine provisions that constitute the nursing code of ethics...

These agencies help to enforce the nursing practice act and the education requirements, licensure, laws, and discipline as written in the act ("Board of Nursing: Laws, Rules and Policies," 2015). A professional nursing organization is the “voice of nursing” ("Statement of Purpose," 2016, p. 1) For instance the American Nurses Association (ANA) gives feedback and recommendations to state regulatory agencies for process improvements along with new laws and regulations. They help make sure that there is plenty of well-educated and adequately trained nurses to meet the needs of the people while supporting the entire nursing population throughout the United States. Between theses to groups for my practice they make sure I am properly licensed and properly educated to do my job. They also keep me in my practice informed of important practice changes and offer numerous educational opportunities.
