Comparison of Transformational Leadership vs. Quantum Leadership Linda S. Powell Ohio State University Comparison of Transformational Leadership vs. Quantum Leadership Introduction The health care industry is sorely in need of new leadership. Revamping health care is a complex and difficult task. But, the old rules are not working. Patient quality is not what it could be. Outcomes are not improving like people thought they would and costs are among the absolute highest in the world.
Managed care has become a buyer with considerable influence in all of health care” (Pratt, 2010). A few years ago one looked at long-term care facilities as being in nursing homes. Today facilities are opening up that is not a setting for nursing home though that is what others thinks. With the government involved today it has restraints with the pricing and the quantity of service one provides. When the government gets involved with making decision on health care they divert resources away from one provider and looks at another.
Implementing Electronic Health Records: The barriers and the benefits Western Governor’s University Electronic Health Records (EHR) not only reduces physician and other healthcare workers workload, but also improves the quality of care through the use of technology such as medication reconciliation tools to prevent medication errors, the use of lab ordering and results delivery to improve the time for diagnosis and treatment and electronic sharing of treatment plans with clients and family and other caregivers. However, many healthcare providers and facilities are faced with barriers to achieving a successful implementation; cost, buy-in, ability to achieve interoperability, extensive training required.

The JAMA states, if the burden of treatment outweighs the benefits and if the family disagrees even after serious attempts of discussion, it is legal justification for “futility of care” (Ufema, J. 2001). Conclusion The purpose of this paper was to discuss, compare, and contrast futile care and the ethical dilemmas that it can create. Articles have been compared and discussed that support the right to a natural death and the dilemmas created when the family chooses not to honor the patient’s wishes, or serve in the best interest of the patient. Ethical dilemmas not only affect nurses, physicians, and patients, they also affect families.
End of Life Care Decision Varsha Singh Rowan University Why is end of life medical care aggressive in New Jersey? “ In medicine, nursing and allied health profession, end of life care refers to health care, not only of patients in the final hours or day of their lives, but more broadly care of all those with a terminal illness or condition that has become advanced, progressive and incurable”(Wikipedia.org). Scientific and technological advances have led to medicalization of care at the end of life; efforts toward cure and eliminating physiological dysfunction often overshadow the obligation to provide appropriate treatment and compassionate care. The shift to a curative focus may actually bring about hope for cure of disease; the fact
Programs that were in place for the care of people who cannot afford to pay are being considered for cuts and many people are uncertain how they will care for themselves when the time comes. Elderly suicide is real and prevalent and some consider this to be a viable option for not ‘burdening’ the system or their families. Identify two key health care-related challenges to this population, such as increases in health care costs, or the need for in-home medical care. “The need for in-home care that will keep people safe and healthy in their own homes is a growing necessity.” (Garrett, N., & Martini, E. 2007) In our society, we will continue to see a rise in the utilization of both of these programs. Many do not realize how cost effective it is to have services in their own home and are quickly moved into an assisted living community by their families without even considering other options.
