For example, how the registered nurses do the scoring for high risk patient and how do they fill up the fall assessment form. The nurses should conduct fall risk assessment during the admission and post procedure. The patients who are the high risk, a red identification will be place on the patient’s limbs. A red sticker also is placed at the nursing notes and at patient room door. If the patient is not a high risk patient, the fall assessment is done weekly or upon change in patient condition.
Management of Care Case Study Josepha is working on a medical surgical unit with three other RNs and one LPN. There is also a male and a female patient care tech. Josepha has been a nurse for four months, and after completing two months of orientation she takes a full assignment as a registered nurse.

Some of the emigrants were processed into the country and others were sent back to their countries of origin. Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital was one of the largest hospitals in the country and up to today, it is still being used as one of the cases studied in the public healthcare system. In a year, twelve million emigrants were processed through the hospital in a year. On arrival, the immigrants would first go through a thirty-second health inspection in the immigration center. More scrutiny was placed on individuals that arrived through the third and second class.
Appendix NCLEX Questions The following two alternate format NCLEX questions were created related to the case study information and focus on the nursing responsibilities prior to blood administration and the signs/symptoms of acute hemolytic transfusion reactions. NCLEX Question #1 The RN on day shift is looking after Anita, a 93-year-old female patient in with an upper GI bleed. Anita’s latest lab results show an Hgb of 62 g/L. The registered nurse notifies the physician, who then orders for Anita to receive 1 unit of packed red blood cells (PRBCs). What are some of the nursing responsibilities before administering the ordered PRBCs?
According to the study, “East Harlem has lost approximately 1,854 units over the next 10 years and a failure to develop more affordable housing will continue to lead to evictions, displacement, decreased housing affordability and potentially poor health outcomes.” There is more to the importance of our health than just worrying about health care and there is a bigger picture behind it. “East Harlem residents are already burdened by a number of health inequities. This is why we felt it was so important to connect this work with health and conduct this assessment. East Harlem residents have higher rates for a number of health conditions — including asthma, high blood pressure, infant mortality and diabetes — than in Manhattan and the rest of the city, according to the study. For instance, there were 75
Unfortunately, there are many ways a patient can be injured or harmed while staying at a hospital. Even though there have been several attempts to make a hospital visit one hundred percent injury preventable, accidents and mistakes still happen. The three leading types of patient injuries are medication errors, patient falls, and pressure ulcers. However, if the entire health care team, such as: health care providers, pharmacists, nurses, etc, work together then hopefully the percentage of patient injury will decrease each year. (Berman, A.

Introduction As the chosen senior project consultant the task is to study the past and present business practices that Caring Angel Hospital embarked on which has now lead them to the current state of condition. From the three months of evaluation at the hospital the major problem was funding issue associated with the running of the hospital operation such as procurement of modernize equipment for diagnosis and other related issues cause by budget constraint. These discoveries focus more on poor leadership business practice where no one is accepting responsibility for its work performance as a result leading to poor motivation of other hospital employees. The main solution to Caring Angel Hospital issues is being able to adopt a risk assessment tool in project management to tackle the issue. There are several steps to consider such as planning on how to approach the risk.
Purpose The purpose of the study was to test whether a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of congestive heart failure could reduce the rates of readmission in elderly patients. The study focused on elderly patients because these patients have an increased risk of readmission. This increased risk of readmission is associated with factors such as social isolation and non compliance with dietary and medical prescriptions. Method The study screened patients who were admitted to the Jewish Hospital which is located in the Washington University Medical Center. All the patients who were screened for the study were 70 years or older.
Mount Sinai Doctors - Jackson Heights (MSDJH) serves the Queens community providing outpatient specialty services for over 20 years. Jackson Heights is a demographically challenging community to deliver care in where 64.2% (110,108) of the population is of Hispanic Origin and nearly half of the population (46.8%) are receiving income support (Medicaid) from the government. After the relocation of MSDJH it created a need to examine and adjust logistically to the new location. The lobby layout is related with over half (62.5%) of the patient complaints since relocating. Upon analysis of MSDJH’s utilization of the assets comparing the clinic’s actual patient census with an adjusted utilization low volume target census of 2 patients per hour
Capstone Project: Falls Prevention and Risk Assessment of the Elderly Population while in Long Term Care facility Evidence Based Practice – NUR 4775L Dr. Susan Poole, DNP, CNE November 22, 2015 Capstone Part I: Falls Prevention and Risk Assessment of the Elderly Population while in Long Term Care facility Introduction to Problem According to Centre for disease Control (CDC) more than 1.4 million people 65 and older live in nursing homes.

In this country, the healthcare system is struggling to incorporate a proper formula to insure an adequate transitions of care between different facilities. Due to these issues, hospitals and community practices are trying to develop better transitions of care systems to coordinate better care with their patients. Hospital readmission rates are becoming alarming, with almost 20% of discharged elderly patients returning to hospitals within a month for the same medical conditions (1). These readmission rates both hurt the hospitals, and more importantly, the patients involved; so, an effective system must be implemented that could ease this transition of care and help reduce readmission rates and healthcare expenses. The National Transitions
These are considered to be the admission units, an assessment is then completed. Once patients are treated and symptoms have resided within 30 days patients are released to resume their lives. In addition to, 50% of the people admitted are discharged back into our society. On the other hand, if people are admitted they are moved to other units. When patients are experiencing a crisis moment all available help is needed.
This program creates financial incentives for hospitals to reduce cost, implement quality improvement programs and focus on reducing readmissions, within 30 days of discharge, for people admitted with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, heart failure and pneumonia. In 2013 CMS implemented a penalty for hospitals that have higher than average readmission rates in the selected disease
