The Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs)- The PSIs are a set of quality measures that use hospital inpatient discharge data to provide a perspective on patient safety. Specifically, the PSIs identify problems that patients experience through contact with the health care system and that are likely amenable to prevention by implementing system level changes. The problems identified are referred to as complications
2) They identify structures of care and care processes, which influence patient care outcomes. (Montalvo, 2007, para. 3) Structural indicators are comprised of the supply, skill, education and certification of the nursing staff. Process indicators measure nursing assessment, intervention and job satisfaction. Outcome indicators reflect patient outcomes that are most influenced by nursing care.
There are some patient quality and safety measures which have been shown through research to be significantly affected by nursing care or “nurse-sensitive” measures. These are collected through a combination of medical record review and administrative data, according to common definitions. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators is a leading voluntary system for collection and analysis of these data. (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) “The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators® (NDNQI®) is a proprietary database of the American Nurses Association. The database collects and evaluates unit-specific nurse-sensitive data from hospitals in the United States.” (Nursing Quality Organization, 2011) Knowing about pressure ulcer prevention and the risk factors to look for would have helped the CNA to be more cognizant of the fact the this particular patient was in the beginning
With concepts of Total Quality Management (TQM) and Quality Improvement (QI) introduced to health care organizations; administrators have had to decide which methodology is right for the organization. There are numerous methodologies: Six Sigma, Lean, and Customer Inspired Quality. Each has its own pros and cons. A key component of quality improvement is the technology that gathers and compares the data that the quality improvement measures produces. The information gathered from the technology can be benchmarked against other health care organizations.
Durkee (2007) advises the implementation of a medication reconciliation “work group” to facilitate the process. A work group underscores the multidisciplinary nature of healthcare in general, acknowledges the whole patient, and also shows how specialized a function medication reconciliation can be. Typically, “there are at least three disciplines generally involved in the process—medicine, pharmacy, and nursing—with little agreement on each profession’s role and responsibility for the reconciliation process,” (Barnsteiner, 2008). Documentation in the electronic medical record, identification of medication at all points of workflow, and other means of standardized information sharing are
The solutions will also be provided to them. Week 1 of MGT 311 will include individual assignment to the students; MGT 311 week 2 will include the discussion questions to the students. MGT 311 week 3 will teach about the motivation action plan in the organization.
Create the use case diagram for the SRS system using the Rational Software Architect software on the Citrix iLab environment. Pay attention to the possible need for Include and Extends relationships. Explain your work and the decisions you made to arrive at your proposed solution. STEP 3: Generate the Use Case Descriptions Create use case descriptions for the two major use cases in the SRS system. These two major use cases are the Maintain Class Records and the Register a Student for Classes use cases.
• Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence. • Assessment discussion and feedback - an explanation to my students, a breakdown of their achievements and feedback. • Reviewing their progress - an overview, update and amend if necessary, until my students have full understand of the lesson. During this process, progress is recorded throughout all aspects of the assessment cycle. 1 UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Furthermore the assessment could be formal (with constraints and validation of knowledge) or informal (any time by oral questions to know how much learning is taking place) depending on area being assessed.
For Students Submitting ECO 201 LINK Assignments Online Your class has been selected to participate in an evaluation of student assignments in the Learning INterdisciplinary Knowledge (LINK) program by the Office of Assessment and Institutional Research (A&IR.) * Your assignment will be graded by your instructor in ECO 201 Macroeconomics. It will count for at least 3% but not more than 5% of your total grade in the course, so you will want to do your best. * You are required to submit it following the instructions below. You are expected to submit this to a special Turnitin.com account.
The research paper will be completed in two parts. The first draft version will be graded on content. In this version I will not be overly critical of spelling, grammar or APA. This version will be returned to the student with comments to help make sure they have satisfactory covered the topic. The final version of the research paper will be graded on content, grammar, spelling and APA documentation.
