Even though China was in a rapidly changing time, it still tried to stay to its roots. One important part of Chinese life was agriculture; almost 70% of the people were farmers in 1500 because of the large population. While Europe, India, and Japan industrialized sometime from 1450 to 1914, China never did. Even after China’s self-imposed isolation ended, several periods of widespread famine, and the disaster known as the Opium Wars in the 19th century, which allowed the Europeans and their ships to travel anywhere in China, and made the Chinese pay tribute. After all of this, China still did not industrialize until the 1960’s.
Chantra Horton ACC281 Accounting Concepts for Health Care Professional The California Sutter Health Approach Mark Strictlett January 30, 2012 An increasing issue within the health care field is the inability to collect debt from the growing population of uninsured or underinsured patients. Health care organizations may be struggling to meet operational margins because the industry has never treated its customers like other retail- oriented sectors of the economy. Hospitals incur sixty billion dollars in bad debt annually because the typically collect only ten to twenty percent of a total uninsured patient balance after service. This is due to a number of reasons, including poor accounting practices, or a lack of patient information.
The investigation included hospitals, day care settings, churches, and schools. Measles outbreaks had been considered eradicated since 2000, however with more and more people choosing to be unvaccinated, and increasing travel outside the United States this has become a worry again for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The current rate for measles in the United States is 1 in 738,672 people (Vaccine incidence, 2014). Despite great achievements put forward toward global reduction of measles, there still remains a large issue. In 2010, 327,305 cases of measles were reported and approximately 139,300 deaths (CDC,
As Baby Boomers grow old and the necessity for health care expands, the United States is expected to have a shortage of nurses. The shortage of nurses has been taking place since World War II, but the major impact to the health care systems have only started to show the past few years. According to Rosseter (2010), “Compounding the problem is the fact that nursing college and universities across the country are struggling to expand enrollment levels to meet the rising demand for nursing care” (p. 1). The reason for this is because there are not many educators to teach nursing. A future concern is the need of nurses is imagined to increase drastically over the next 25 years when the Baby Boomers arrive in their 60s.The common age for registered nurses (RN) is around 45 so the demand for nurses will continue to rise.
A conscription, or draft, was frowned upon and Congress discovered a new way to gain soldiers. By using selective services and a lottery, people were not exactly forced into the military. By the end of World War 1, however, the US had already spent nearly $44 million dollars. In order to raise and conserve money the people were urged to grow victory gardens, so that they country could limit the food being produced and sold since there were not as many workers now. Liberty and Victory bonds were also sold.
Lucy miranda ACP US History Mr. Swart November 10, 2011 Change in Society In today’s day and age the norms of society and filial institutions are dynamic, particularly because of the arduous change in family standards from zealous and religious dogma to a more liberal, equal lifestyle in the common American house hold. Such is seen in De Tocqueville’s Democracy in America, where he says the following: “In America the family, in the Roman and aristocratic signification of the word, does not exist. All that remains of it are a few vestiges in the first years of childhood, when the father exercises, without opposition, that absolute domestic authority which the feebleness of his children renders necessary and which their interest, as
There are federally funded programs that provide coverage for these patients. Diabetes is a preexisting condition that often leaves patients with no insurance coverage. In 2014 the health care reform act has implemented a policy that insurance companies will no longer be able to refuse health insurance to people who have chronic illnesses or other issues that may be considered a preexisting condition (May, 2011). There are a large number of the health issues within the African American communities that are a result of co-morbid conditions and other socio-economic conditions. This environment often involves conditions such as mental health issues, drug addictions, diabetes, unemployment, poverty, and heart disease.
Quality in Healthcare Kaiser Permanente, which is the largest not-for-profit health plan, has been going through a supply chain transformation as a result of Obamacare and the growing impact of consumerism. Before starting this transformation, Kaiser Permanente did not feel the need to even exercise some basic tenants of supply chain management. Five years ago, when Laurel Junk who is the Vice President of Kaiser’s Supply Chain Management joined the organization, she noticed a few management problems that Kaiser had. For example, nurses would spend time looking for needed products when instead they could be more organized and have more time to spend with the patients. Overall, Kaiser had very little to no coordination on their sourcing,
Minimum Wage Even though a couple of years ago minimum wage was increase to $7.25, this is still a major issue. In the economy that we live in, where the prices of food, clothes, homes, health insurance, and gasoline are on the rise, when you make minimum wage, it is merely impossible to survive. There are many companies that start off employees making minimum wage, which they claim is all they can afford or the position itself pays low, for example, housekeepers. Well to be quite honest, I know that a housekeeper’s position does not require education or a hard to find skill set, but the housekeeper’s job is very strenuous and demanding. I do believe that the minimum wage should be increased
Health Care My current event is on health care reform. The House passed the health Care Reform Bill on Sunday, March 21, 2010. The Health Care reform bill is for the people who can’t afford health insurance. There are millions of people who don’t have health insurance and if they get sick they can’t go to get medical treatment. Passing health care reform does a lot more than give people health insurance.
