Task B assignment 204 & Task D of the ERR Report 1 – Winterbourne View Failure Winterbourne View was a 24 bed hospital registered to provide assessment, treatment and rehabilitation to people with learning difficulties and autism. The establishment was closed in June 2011 after an undercover BBC journalist got a job at the hospital and using a hidden camera documented extraordinary failures within the establishment. The hospital went under serious review by South Gloucester safeguarding adults board, the police and Care Quality Commission, in addition the government set up its own review led by the department of health. On the 31st May 2011 BBC Panorama aired their secretly filmed documentary which revealed the frequent, serious failures at Winterbourne View. The documentary provided clear evidence of the bullying and mental and physical abuse of patients from members of staff at the hospital.
Milo Gosnell 12-30-12 Period 1 Valley Forge DBQ Valley Forge: Would you have quit? George Washington had led the Continental Army through battle after battle, and only won two minor battles. While the British set up comfortable quarters in Philadelphia, George Washington had his men build uniform huts in Valley Forge, a few miles away. Sickness and disease ran rampant, and conditions were torturous. Your family is poor and your mother is ill.
SHORTFALLS IN BATTLEFIELD ADVANCES Before the start of the Afghanistan war, The United States (U.S.) Army culminated Initial Entry Training (IET) for combat medics by testing and certifying them with civilian Emergency Medical Technician Basic (EMT-B) certificates. Army doctrine also suggested that applying tourniquets to wounded Soldiers should only be used as a last resort as well as resuscitating Soldiers with crystalloids. This practice continues today, however, this type of irrelevant training has proven to be ineffective. Analysis of all combat-related mortality sustained during Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) or Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) in the last decade reveals that up to 25% of all deaths were potentially salvageable. Further exploration reveals that the vast majority (90%) of these deaths were attributed to exsanguination.i Even with addition of the Combat Action Tourniquet to Soldiers across the spectrum for the Army, Soldiers are needlessly dying.
Perceived organizational openness will mediate the relationship between trust and employee involvement (Thomas, Zolin & Hartman 2009)Trust will mediate the relationships among quality of information and enough information and perceived organizational openness (Thomas, Zolin & Hartman 2009). Finally, after all analysis was complete it was determined that the relationship between communication and trust is too complex. Measuring the quality and the quantity of information was shown to be inaccurate and ineffective, when considering all members of the organization. As it relates to the relationships evaluated in the organization, relationships with coworkers and supervisors, it is quality, not quantity, of information that best builds trust. To further research and study this relationship much more research must be
While being shot at?' Crazy." Houshmandzedeh's tone made it clear "crazy" was a term of respect, even admiration.” (Kramer, 2009) It is inherent from day one of basic training that team building and learning are critical to the many of the aspects of a soldier. To be successful, whether in peacetime or in conflict, it is imperative that people know the roles specified and delegated to tasks and missions assigned. Very rarely is there operation failure in the military.
organizational Responsibility and Current Healthcare Issues Health Law and Ethics HC/545 March 3, 2014 Instructor: Dr. Frederiksen Medical Error The healthcare industry is facing many issues in today’s modern world due to the complexity of America’s healthcare system. Medical error is one of the biggest healthcare issues, rising as one of the leading causes of death in America. “An article published in the September issue of the Journal of Patient Safety estimates that there are between 210,000 and 400,000 deaths per year associated with medical errors in hospitals” (Gaunce, 2013, para. 1). Preventable medical error is defined as failure in the treatment by a healthcare provider.
Sociologist Robert K Merton coined the term “goal displacement” to describe this phenomenon. Goal displacement occurs when compliance with bureaucratic processes becomes the objective instead of focusing on organizational goals. The rational military decision making process that serves so well at the tactical level is inadequate for dealing with political issues that are part and parcel of senior level leadership. As Field Manual 22-100 notes, “Strategic leaders must concern themselves with the total environment in which the Army functions; their decisions take into account such things as congressional hearings, Army budgetary constraints, new systems… just to name a few.” We need senior leaders who can see both the parts and the big picture; to this end some of the concepts of systems thinking are useful.
