Diana should create a report that clearly and factually describes the event and circumstances surrounding. Any staff members involved should be included in this description and are also advised to write a report of their own, documenting their experience in the event. The time, date and location of occurrence should be documented. The patients status needs to be assessed and documented as well as injuries ensued. All interventions that were completed need to be included and who was notified as a result of the event.
This can be measured by reviewing charts to ensure that required fields are documented and confirming that the information available is what was entered and can be traced back to the appropriate data entry point. As Jackson et al (2011) indicate, it is important to determine the needs of users, such as healthcare providers and patients, to make sure that they are receiving value from the system.
Case Summary Before a counselor is able to decide what the first step is in helping a client, they must conduct a proper screening and intake interview. Through this process the counselor is able to establish a trusting relationship with the client; as well as gain insight into his demographic information, referral reasons, current situation, previous counseling experience, birth and development history, family history, medical history, and educational/vocational background (Joshua & Brandé, 2015, p. 129 -132). Based off of the intake interview the counselor has a general idea about who the client is as well as what he needs moving forward. When screening a client, a number of questions can be asked in order to gain insight as to what the client may be struggling with or who the client is as a person.

Provision 9, is about the nursing profession and all other professions and organizations in the health care field. They must articulate nursing values, maintain the integrity of the profession, and integrate principles of social justice into nursing and health policy. Articulation and assertion of values discuss how nurses have affirmed core values that we all strive to have to be able to provide the best quality of care. These core values though may be jeopardized when confronted with a conflict. This section in provision 9 does not greatly expand further, but throughout all of the other provisions, this is not a new topic as through the case studies done weekly, we are able to practice our nursing judgements and ethics to resolve case studies.
As previously described, the United States is the country that spends the most money in health care in the world. For example, just in the year 2008, it spent 16.2 percent of its gross domestic product on health- care (Gaydos 700). Through the population health model, investment and policy decisions in areas such as education, income transfer, civil rights, macroeconomics, employment, welfare, housing, and neighborhoods would have a significant effect on improving a population’s health than increasing the spending on medical services.
