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.
In a state prison in downstate Menard, Illinois, an inmate by the name of Gino Colon takes a walk around his prison wearing sunglasses, a new sweat suit, nice sneakers and even a gold chain with a diamond studded medallion hanging from his neck. Almost all 2,600 of the other inmates of the prison are locked up in their cells. At this time, a lock down was being enforced because of a serious incident at another state prison. But Colon is within the rules to be just walking around. He even has a key to his room.
The second factor that needs to be considered is the routine the inmates faced on a day to day basis and the outcome of the rehabilitation. Prior to Pentonville, prisons were used as holding bays for those on death row and debtors, due to prisons being unfeasible for long term incarceration. Prisons were corrupt environments were ‘prisoners were in the company of criminals of every class and degree’ . Subsequently it can be claimed that having ‘passed time, he returns a greater adept in crime, with a wider acquaintance among criminals’ . During the time of the report the Lords Select Committee had promoted the silent system which had been adopted at Wakefield Goal and Coldbath fields in 1834.
Criminal Justice Trends Paper To aid in the future progress of corrections are being developed as a result of past and current trends. The issues and concerns surrounding the corrections component of the criminal justice system are overcrowded prisons and their decreasing budget. If these issues and concerns are not address, they will definitely disrupt the effectiveness and future operations of corrections. Restorative and community justice programs are options being considered for the future of corrections as administrators, legislators, and activists debate philosophies to address these issues and concerns resulting from past and current trends. In the past, the national political climate favored the get tougher approach against crime
Prison Environment I would describe the prison environment as a place where people are sent after they have committed a crime. In this environment, the offenders are locked up away from society and are stripped of the freedoms that they had before they were sent to prison. In this environment, the offenders must abide by strict rules, be confined to a small space, and are told when/if they can have visitors. The prison environment influences institutional management and custody in several ways. One of which being overcrowding.
Dose that one instance constitute him losing everything he has worked his entire life for? The simple answer is yes. However, there are a multitude of tough problems that you must weigh in your decision. It is not as cut and dry as it sounds on paper, if you actually put yourself in this situation it is a much more difficult decision to make. Plus as I stated before, you may adversely place yourself in-between the correction officers and the inmates.
Treatment Versus Incarceration Anthony Williams Ivy Tech Community College Treatment Versus Incarceration One of the most controversial points in America is the debate about Treatment versus Incarceration. We have sectors that seem to believe that you cannot treat and rehabilitate an offender. This sector, which is the Justice System of this country, simply states ‘build more prisons’. We have come to a time where there are so many prisons in some states that it is considered a vital source of income for that state. As we will soon learn, if we do not put some type of behavioral modification program in place we will continue to have the problems of prison overcrowding.
Without such activities being available to inmates, their daily routine returns into a monogamous state resulting in boredom. Loomis, a former inmate at Alcatraz Prison, describes the effect of such a lifestyle on inmate behavior: “Life gets so monotonous you feel like bucking the rules to break the monotony,” (Oliver, 66). In addition to idleness repetition, overcrowding also increased the difficulty of imposing discipline, resulting in greater availability of drugs, flourishing gangs, and an increased threat in brutality between prisoners (The Oxford History of the Prison, 237). One of the most fundamental resources of correctional institutions, the correctional officers, are also being vastly outnumbered. The new focus of corrections and society as being “tough on crime” affects the lives in which inmates, officers, and the community must now live by.
Prison Gangs Dealing with prison gangs is a task that is not easily rectified by prison staff. New and techniques to get messages from gang members inside prison to their counterparts outside prison walls is ever changing. Just when you think you have figured out how they are communicating to each other, gang members come up with new and alternate means to get the message out. This is not only true to gangs with members on the outside, but with gangs that are entirely made up of inmates as well. One possible way to deal with the growing problem of prison gangs and the violence that is often associated with them is to identify members and keep them separated (Demsky, 2009).
I have read some interviews from other SANEs online and many of them admit that it is a very stressful job. It is emotionally draining and dealing with the patients can at times be frustrating when they will not cooperate, but at the end of the day it is so rewarding knowing that you are helping to put a criminal in jail. I understand that there is a lot that will go into getting my degree and certifications and I am prepared to take on that challenge. I also know that when I begin working I will have to deal with some pretty terrifying stories of assault, I will be a part of the patient’s support system, I will have to be very knowledgeable about the sexual assault laws in each state I work in, I will have to be able to develop a plan to keep the patient safe, and still manage to do all of the paperwork and tend to my other patients in the emergency room. It has always been my passion to help others in need.
