How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them.
Ideally concepts are essential to our life, we just may not notice the use of them (Paul & Elder, 2012). To become a critical thinker people must develop theories in order to form the idea to carry out the thought. We use concepts, ideas, and theories to interpret data, facts, and experiences to answer questions, solve problems, and resolve issues (Paul & Elder, 2012). This is part of the eight elements that comprise the thought process. The goal in my future is to resolve the issue of uneducated Surgical Technologist hiring in to our facility.
Abstract:The modern ICU generates large volumes of complex and multimodal data. Interpreting and utilizing this information is challenging for the ICU Physician. By enhancing the ICU Clinical Decision Support System its outcomes in critical patients will be improved by providing real-time decision support, decreasing medical errors, and minimizing life-threatening events caused by delayed or uninformed medical decisions. In addition to basic patient demographics, pre-existing comorbidity data, and medication usage, it also emulate more event categories such as nurse-verified chart events, laboratory tests, and fluid balance records. For making critical decisions, these events based categories with event duration are more helpful.
The fact is that very often the question of payment and reimbursement comes along with ethical concerns. In case a patient is not able to afford treatment, he/she could be deprived of an opportunity to obtain care. For this reason, an ethical dilemma appears ("Healthcare reimbursement & changing rules," n.d.). Thus, a nurse manager always works close to patients aligning cooperation with them and determining their main needs. At the same time, this specialist is also responsible for determining the payment model that could be chosen to pay caregivers and guarantee that treatment will be initiated.
(Hogue & Prudhomme, 2012) Another point is documentation on a patient. There is a saying in the medical field if you didn’t document it didn’t happen, make sure as a case manager, everything you do is fully documented in the patient record. Develop habits that are good, you always want to document on a client when everything is fresh. It proves to the case manager’s credibility.
Evidence-based practice in nursing and healthcare Introduction Evidence-based health care refers to the careful and thoughtful decision-making that happens during patient care, which is greatly influenced by valid and clinically relevant research, to provide quality patient care and improve patient outcomes (Broom and Adams, 2012). As such, the main aim of the evidence-based health care is to help healthcare providers make choices that best affect individual patients, of which they have to base their judgment on current and valid information. Evidence-based practice is a process that necessitates practitioners to examine the patient, come up with a clinical query, carry out a research pertaining the question, and attain supportive evidence.
The clients to be the center of the NHS and changing the emphasis of measurement to clinical outcomes, which is all relevant for the Fleetwood Hall Home. This act ensures that the policies have a specific standard and delivers a greater voice for the client’s health and safety by providing a better patient-centered approach. This will result in higher accessibility of care and improved health and social care competence.

The aim of this project is to improve our understanding of how healthcare managers handle the demands and challenges, the motivations and rewards, of a changing service. We know very little about the work experience and attitudes of healthcare managers, but when things go wrong, this group often takes the blame. We will explore the impact managers have on the quality and outcomes of patient care, and we also want to find out how changes to working practices are managed after serious or ‘extreme’ incidents. This can be a problem, as the recommendations of enquiries, in health and elsewhere, often sit on the
For benefits to be realized, it is essential that the product has the most appropriate HCPCS code (Nusgart, 2013). The HCPCS code enables the providers (clinicians), manufacturers, and the payers to pinpoint with accuracy the product that was provided and furnished to a client for billing and processing claims. Additionally, it serves as a means that enable clinicians to classify, define, and distinguish a health care product. Consequently, it provides a common denominator that clinicians, manufacturers, and payers can use to derive data that measures the outcomes and cost (Nusgart,
