During their conversation, Randy says, “I’m sick of all this. Sick and tired,” (Hinton 116). By “all this” Randy means all the fighting and hatred between the Socs and Greasers. This conversation was very important to the story because it was one of the first times a Soc went up to a Greaser and they attempted to understand each other. Randy wanted peace, which was something hardly and Socs seemed to want.
Earlier in the story, Randy tells Ben Franklin to never point a gun at a man unless he intended to kill him (Frank 137). However later in the story, Randy makes a group of men help bury Porky Logan by holding them at gunpoint (Frank 215). This shows that Randy has hardened mentally because before, Randy wouldn’t point a gun at another man. Yet, later, when Randy is forced to adjust to his rough situation, he contradicts his earlier beliefs, thus showing change. This shows that Randy Bragg has hardened over the course of the

Medication reconciliation assignment was an individual activity that I had to perform as a part of a course requirement. For this activity, we had clinical simulation lab organized with standardized patient. In simulation lab, I had to refer patient’s chart that includes his home medications and then interview standardized patient and get all detailed information regarding his medication schedule including name of medication, strength, dosage form, route, frequency and any adverse event associated with any medication patient is taking. After interviewing patient, I had to update patient’s medication list in to the patient’s chart and based on my clinical knowledge if I found any discrepancy in the patient medication list then I have to come
Medication errors can be very dangerous for the ones taking the wrong medicines or doses; therefore, safety measures must be in place. Administering them must be done with an understanding and focus. One missed check could have a staff member giving a resident the wrong set of pills. Some interventions to help prevent the medication error from occurring is to first report errors. When errors are reported, the main cause is to try and never let the error occur again.
For many political scientists, the answer to Jon Tester’s victory is simple. After all, incumbents win nearly 80% of the time in the Senate. It can be expected that Tester would fall on the majority side of that break. Still, Montana is a conservative state, and Jon Tester is a Democrat who “votes with Obama 97% of the time”. He, like Obama, loves to spend money gained by raising taxes on hard-working Americans.
At the beginning of the Last Lecture, it was mentioned that Randy got accepted to do a presentation for the students of Carnegie Mellon. He ended up still excepting the presentation being mindful of his pancreatic cancer. " "They'll let me back out," I told my wife Jai, but I really wanted to do it" (Pausch, 4). These were the words said after Randy found out he had only months to live. This quote is why he's hard working.
QSEN Competency of Safety A major push for the improvement of quality and safety outcomes was in 2000 when the Institute of Medicine published, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System. In 2003 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) laid out the six core competencies for healthcare workers. In 2007, the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project redefined the competencies to fit the care of nurses (Jones, 2013). Two of the competencies laid out in this project are quality and safety.
Medication reconciliation is a safe process that can benefit patients by providing accurate, up to date listing of current medications the patient is taking. Patients deserve high quality patient care that supports accurate medication list, eradicating potential medication errors, and providing superior safe patient care. Which then directs me to my clinical question, does accurate medication reconciliation (intervention) influence patient safety (outcome) in patent’s who have adverse drug events (problem) over a one year within ambulatory clinic settings (time)? My PICOT supportive research question has been further evaluated from the journal article, “Ambulatory Medication Reconciliation: Using a Collaborative Approach to Process Improvement at an Academic Medical Center” written by Keogh et al. (2016).
Randy pulled Ponyboy aside to just have a talk about why he chose to save the children, Cherry talks to Ponyboy about visiting Johnny in the hospital. “‘I’m sick of it because it doesn’t do any good. You can’t win, you know that, don’t you?’”(117). That alone shows that Randy doesn’t think that fighting will do any good, he seems like the person who hates Greasers, but he actually just wants to be a normal person. “‘I wasn’t trying to give you charity, Ponyboy.
Medication use is potentially dangerous. Polypharmacy is increasing, and makes it harder to keep track of side effects and interactions and of potentially inappropriate drug combinations. “The risk of serious consequences, hospitalization, and death due to medication errors increases with patients’ age and number of medications (Scand J Prim Health Care, 2012)”. For example, the GP is supposed to monitor the patient's regular medication, but does not always do so. Lack of monitoring and keeping track of patients’ medication use is a main cause when a patient is given inappropriate drugs.
