Moreover, it is important to consider the nature of the task being delegated to the UAP (Corazzini et al., 2013). This paper is aimed at exploring rules of task delegation in nursing profession by applying the five rights of delegation. The discussion is based on the provided case study involving a team composed of an RN, LVP/LPN, and a UAP. The team is required to provide healthcare services to six patients

A Medical Administrative assistant is basically the heart of the medical profession. An Administrative MA performs general tasks needed to operate a DR. office such as handling appointments, recording patient’s information, answering the phone, and sometimes billing and accounting. Three specialties a medical assistant may choose to advance their career in are: Medical Assistant Instructor, Medical office manager, Lead medical assistant.

The Medical Model finds issues though rigorous testing done by specialists and relies on a definite diagnosis of a patient who can then be treated with medical and rehab. It places disability in the category of an illness or an incapacity and can be very broad in its thinking. “With the medical model, the ‘problem’ is seen to lie with the person with the disability” and “the person is seen by this model as abnormal and remains so until the condition is cured” (E. Flood, 2013) The Medical Model looks at diagnosing problems they believe can be then medically treated and, further down the road, they look at rehabilitating ‘sufferers’ through medical means. Strengths; • “The most positive thing about the medical model

An ineffective healthcare policy that I experienced in my practice is skin assessment sign-off at shift change. Although an excellent policy, this was unsuccessful due to inadequate staffing and working long hours. In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), some patients are high acuity and the nurse-to-patient ratio needs to be one-on-one. Other times an ICU nurse can have three patients due to low staffing. Jooste and Prinsloo (2013) stated that when a hospital is low on staffing, the aftermath can affect the patient’s quality of care as well as their safety.
A nurse aide is just one of the many positions within a nursing home setting. We are responsible for aiding the nurses and doctors and helping the residents with activities of daily living such as bathing, eating, dressing, toileting, walking, etc. This paper will address this specific health care setting and the ways these sociological perspectives are witnessed on an everyday basis. The main idea of the sociological perspective called functional analysis, otherwise known as functionalism, is that society is a single unit comprised of smaller components that work together to create a whole. An example of this within my workplace would be the nurse aides working alongside the nurses, doctors, cooks, and dietary aides to promote the health of
