007-3.2 Explain the potential impact of an out break of infection on the individual and the organisation. Impact on the organisation: There would be potentially huge cost implications on an organisation with regards to staff sickness levels rising, causing the need to employ more staff which they will be paying to cover in addition to staff that are off sick ,and patients needing hospitalisation. Patients may require to have longer stays in hospital causing a shortage of beds for other patients. Hospitals, units and wards could all face closure short term or long term. The organisation could also be fined by not complying with the law which would have a negative effect with exposure in the media.
It is thought that more than two-thirds or about 70% of these adverse events are preventable that is why patient safety has become increasingly important in Health Care. In relation to adverse events that occur in hospital setting, medical error plays a distressing role in patient safety as it gets in the way of the quality of care. Kohn L. et al (2000) states that health care is not as safe as it should be due to the fact that sizeable body of evidence points to medical errors as leading cause of death and injury. Milligan F. et al (2005) states that such incidents can have physical and psychological effect not only to the patient, but to families, friends
A wide-ranging, advanced and various approach is to be taken to reduce disasters, and support in bringing new tension to research on disasters, on pre- planning. Therefore, “to include disaster education and preparedness of the public as well as early warning systems is directly depended on us, in whom people at risk receive, understand, and act upon the warning information conveyed”(Abhishek 1). Natural disasters are the effects and result of natural hazards. Natural disasters, like hurricane Katrina, represent a serious breakdown in sustainability and disruption of economic and social progress and they signify to the great loss of human lives and their properties. The enormous number of dead, seriously incapacitated and homeless people after the strike of a natural disaster and the large amount of money to be spent for reestablishment and rehabilitation connects to a natural disaster.
A hazard can be defined as natural phenomena that produce negative effects on life. According to Dr Martin Degg at the University of Chester, a natural hazard only becomes a disaster if it threatens humans. In Degg’s model, the hazard circle includes all the physical factors while the factors that make a population vulnerable are mostly human. In other words a hazard that produces a disaster in one population may have only a limited effect on another less vulnerable population. Take for example the two earthquakes that affected Northridge and Haiti.
RTT Task 1 Western Governors University A. Nursing Sensitive Indicators As the medical field becomes more-and-more complex, it is crucial that the nurse does not overlook the day-to-day needs of the individual patients. It is very important that the nurse as a professional does not become so bogged down with the medical aspect that one loses touch with the patient as a person. What may seem very minute to the nurse, can be of great significance to the patient. If the nurse is not sensitive to these minute needs, it can cause the patient to be unable to trust the medical team meeting the needs, and understanding the importance of more serious issues.
The next step was to train the other employees to use the system when looking for a medical record. At first we had someone from the company working with us to make sure that everyone was on board with this project then slowly they would leave. We had constant contact with the project manager and other people on the project team to be able to trouble shoot remotely anything and if they were not able to then they would come to Fort Hood to fix whatever the problem was. This allowed the 3M company to document each step of the way from designing to

Family members will need to ensure Mr. Trosack has adequate supplies for dressing changes and blood glucose monitoring. Mr. Trosack will need transportation from the hospital and to follow up appointments and physical therapy. The family will need to evaluate whether or not the safety issues discussed above have been resolved and may need to collaborate with the occupational therapist to ensure Mr. Trosack can safely move around in his apartment. They will need to provide groceries and take out the trash daily as Mr. Trosack is unable to do so.
