Explain the organisation’s mission and purpose Mid Yorkshire Hospital’s mission and purpose is to provide medical care to the community in acute and specialist health circumstances to the Wakefield and Kirklees areas. The trust treats the diverse population without prejudice. The following statement is taken from the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals intranet: “In everything we do, our patients come first. And whether it is providing care and treatment, operating our IT systems or ensuring our environment is pleasant and welcoming for our patient’s, all our staff play a vital part in this.” This explains that patient care is the highest priority for the trust.

Next will be the discussion regarding the responsibilities of administrators and how to address employee problems. Finally, the essay will end on possible resolutions to confidentiality problems to limit future issues. Affected Population While exploring the concept of patient confidentiality, there are many individuals who are affected all across the country, particularly anyone in the health care field. The most notable are patients but physicians and health care employees run a close second mainly because they are handling patient files. Patient confidentiality includes any information such as test results, treatments, diagnoses, and personal information like name, age, and SS#s.
This in turn exposes not only patients, but also nurses to a significant amount of noise and alarms, ultimately leading to the clinical problem called alarm fatigue. As defined by the Joint Commission, alarm fatigue is known as the desensitization of medical staff as a result of sensory overload. This overload ultimately results in a delay of an alarm being answered, and sometimes someone completely missing the alarm altogether (The Joint Commission, 2015). Alarm fatigue has been recognized as a contributing
HCA 250 | Change and Innovation | By: Roger Hart | Instructor: Carolyn Hart | University of Phoenix | 10/30/2011 | At times change can be a scary thing, special when you have an office filled with employees who have been used to doing things one way for so long that the thought of having to learn something new is more of a frustration more than anything else. I have planned an office meeting with my employees to explain the (EMR) electronic medical record computerized style and why it is so important to change to this form from the old way, because now we can store, retrieve and modify patients records and share them all over the world to other doctors and specialist by a click of a button. By allowing the employees
The power struggle between McMurphy and Nurse Ratched is the main conflict in the novel because it affects everybody in the hospital also each use their power over the patients and nurse staff in different ways throughout the hospital. This has happened a lot through out history as well. The main purpose of everything that the two do to each other or the people around them is to establish power. However the power they gain or already have can be taken away or ignored easier than it was to establish. McMurphy does not always have power within the hospital; he loses it at some points but gains it back after.

Contemporary Issues in Adult Nursing: Preoperative Fasting Trends in healthcare are continually evolving and changing, these fluctuations can often have massive implications for nursing practice. How we practice as nurses is often dictated by new policy and guidelines which are brought about by the evolving healthcare system. For an issue to be contemporary it has to be occurring in the present and in the sense of nursing it would seem that many issues could be deemed as contemporary due to the ever fluctuating nature of our healthcare service. For the purpose of this assignment I am going to address the issue of pre-operative fasting and the tradition of fasting patients from midnight until surgery the following day. Evidence suggests that this practice is outdated and unnecessary but still the practice occurs on many surgical wards.
