World Health Organization (WHO, 2016) highlighted that patient safety, is an important principle of health care. Hazards to patient safety occur when there is a discrepancy between a given patient and components of their care, whether these components are investigative, therapeutic or ancillary. The Joint Commission International Patient Safety Goal (IPSG, 2013) standards first objective means to enhance the precision of patient using so as to distinguish proof no less than two patient identifiers when providing care, treatment, and administrations. In this essay, it will address issues on a case scenario of a patient misidentification, consequences and factors affecting errors, and efforts to reduce errors. It was 7.15 a.m.; a newly
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
Also, it is anticipated that the synergistic integration and active involvement of these providers in the care of patients and families, may improve healthcare outcomes and resource allocation overall. Specifically, this research will contribute to the health system
Ethical decision making in a health care system is undertaken to enable health professionals to increase their awareness of ethical issues involved in their practice and to guide them in arriving at sound, justifiable decisions (Amado, 2004). In the clinical setting, it requires a trained sensitivity to make good ethical decisions to ethical issues and a practiced method for exploring the ethical aspects of a decision and weighing the
Evidence based practices are important because it aims to provide the most effective care that is available, with the aim of improving patient outcomes. Patients expect to receive the most effective care based on the best available evidence. Evidence is the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid. Evidence based practice is the integration of clinical expertise, patient values, and the best research evidence into the decision-making process for patient care. You find out exactly why this person is using or doing what they are doing and use it to figure out what kind of treatment you can use for them.
Sociology Theories in Medical Profession Medical professionals are experts who deal with illness in the healthcare facilities. The professionals play a vital role in ensuring that the community gets access to a high standard of medical services. Some of the critical services that the health care practitioner 's offer includes delivery of healthcare services to people, promote health; prevent diseases as well as promoting health in the society. According to the millennium development goals, all health sectors should ensure that the society reaches a state of disease-free, by facilitating quality healthcare services. The healthcare professionals should incorporate sociology concepts to relate human studies with a health professional.
INTRODUCTION Delivering the right care at the right time in the right setting is the core mission of hospitals across the country. To helping PATIENT improve the quality of care they deliver every day. So by providing information and assistance on how to improve care and by working with manger of hospital, doctor, nears and research agencies to create a policy environment on which quality and safety The goal of this part to provide some essential definitions that link patient safety with health care quality. Evidence is summarized that indicates how nurses are in a key status to improve the quality of health care through patient safety interventions and strategies. Quality care means providing the best possible outcomes and partnering with
ABSRACT Clinical practice guideline having much importance to improve the patient care outcomes and safety from complications. Nurses role as health care provider, depend on multi-disciplinary knowledge and experience to use of clinical practice guidelines to promote their nursing practices. Nursing staff adherence to clinical practices guidelines is help in improving patient safety in hospital. The purpose of this study is exploring the factors that promotes and inhibit adherence to clinical practices. This research based on systematic literature review and quantitative evaluation of research results.
PART A Introduction Effective interpersonal communication is prerequisite for the interchange of health allied information, the development of therapeutic relationships, accomplishing mutual understanding and applying knowledge to build trust, indeed it is useful in achieving person centred care for health professionals. First of all effective communication is a powerful therapeutic tool and an essential in open-ended and closed questions to make decisions about Mrs Bernardi’s health and achieving positive outcome for health professionals.

ACOs is consider to be groups of doctors, hospitals and insurance companies that connection together to offer a higher-quality of patient care. By improving the quality of care and making more cost-efficient health care decisions. There are ACO core standards in place to ensure that health providers receive the appropriate incentives across the board. ACO’s also have to establish a system wide approach to continuous improvement, and communication, and education to ensure that the quality of care is cost effective. ACO 's Strategic Plan ACO’s require to meet certain benchmarks for keeping patients healthy without requiring a hospital stay.
From the lessons learned from the patients-centered medical home (PCMH), the NCQA was motivated to develop an accreditation process for ACOs. The NCQA tried to accommodate the lessons that they learned from the PCMH programs so as to develop a very excellent program that recognizes that provisions of the high-quality primary care are the foundation of good health. NCQA also recognizes that although the evaluation of the result is very imperative, it is also critical to assess the ACOs using evidenced based criteria. Through these measures, the organizations can learn more about what is needed and what they need to do so that they can be compliant. They can also learn the key elements required for successful transformation of the ACO.
Evidence-based practice is the use of the best available evidence together with a clinician 's expertise and a patient 's values and preferences in making health care decisions. In your discussion, you focus on reducing reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). Therefore, it needs a Program that works to expand the available evidence base for evidence-based practice and to ensure clinicians have the tools to put this knowledge base into practice. AHRQ offers several curriculum tools that health care professionals can use to make care safer and improve their communication and teamwork skills. To help you and your patients get the most out of your time together, AHRQ offers these free resources that you can use with your team and share
Security should always be required when accessing patient records. Data use agreements and connections between HIE organizations are also a concern with health information exchange. “The types of healthcare partners that are needed is a challenge when determining the trading area needed for a viable HIE” (PHII, 2005). Although there are challenges, there are opportunities with implementing a health information exchange system. One opportunity is HIE can improve reporting to public health and in return improve the health of the community.
I look forward to learn more about health policies and becoming more involved in health policies. A master’s prepared nurse has many roles in the health care field. One of the many roles is participating in health policies. A “Master’s-prepared nurses will use their political efficacy and competence to improve the health outcomes of populations and improve the quality of the healthcare delivery system” (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2011, p. 20). By the master’s prepared nurse being involved with health policy it is a way to make sure his or her patients are receiving the quality care that the patient needs.
