Those whose needs have been met who want to give a portion of their income to the less fortunate promote the greater good. But if they do this, so should everyone else, including those whose needs have not been met. This is where we find Rule Utilitarianism to be incomplete because those whose needs have not been met would also need to give a portion of their incomes away to promote the greater good, but if they planned to use that money to pay for medical school, then they have strayed from helping the greater good in the long run. By promoting the greater good, they somehow end up harming the greater happiness. This is called the Dilemma Principle, when “circumstances place two or more moral rules in conflict” (pg.
Variation in performance would often produce unexpected and undesired adverse outcomes, including the occurrence or risk of a sentinel event. A root cause can be defined as one of the most fundamental reasons of failure, or a situation in which performance does not meet expectations. The word cause in the context of root cause analysis should not imply or assign responsibility or a factor to blame for a problem. Instead, the cause should focus on a positive and preventive approach and refer to the potential relationship between the responsible factors that result in a sentinel event. Root cause analysis usually performed retrospectively, and it evaluates the reasons for the bad outcomes or for sentinel events that have already occurred.
Mapleton Family Medicine can be closely compared to countless other family medicine facilities throughout the US, a small family practice establishment struggling to keep up with providing fast but efficient care within a small city. With wanting to raise productivity without hindering patient care, the owners have hypothesized an incentive system plan to move the establishment in the right direction. However, will the plan actually be effective in accomplishing these goals? Based upon the case questions within the experiential exercise, I will work to answer any problems addressed, giving away to a better understanding of the possible obstacles within the development of their incentive system plan. Developing a reputable compensation plan for a medical facility can bring a lot benefits when properly developed.
The criteria for inclusion & exclusion should be appropriate in such a way that there are minimal confounding factors which will interfere in the results. The statistical techniques used for deriving the results will be checked for their appropriateness. The discussion will be reviewed to highlight whether it reflects the results obtained in the study. The conclusion will be checked if it actually achieved the objective of the study. References will be analysed to check its completeness, relevance and current or old
Character is built on our integrity and our intentions. This is another important differentiator to consider when we think about how we describe our feelings about either our own character or the character of someone else. If we have concerns about someone’s competence to accomplish an important task, it can be helpful to reflect on whether it is the individual’s capability to accomplish the task or their past results with accomplishing the task that gives us pause. We may often feel capable of accomplishing something; but if we don’t have results to show, others may question our credibility. All together your credibility is built on your integrity, intention, capabilities and results.
Eventual, the next the collected data is will validity from error. According to, Kim and Mallory (2014). “error is a threat to both internal and external validity of a study”. The assumption test is required to be performed and met. Data Analysis Methods A Wilcoxon rank-sum will be apply to validated that is not violated a nonparametric test.
Without these movements made by numerous hospitals such as veteran hospitals, there would be no way for an actual change. It would hinder the world because of these small inequities. That’s the impact the medical world has and just how important it is to equally distribute and maintain correct health care and medical rights. The often barbaric circumstances some minorities are put through such as high medical copays that can’t be paid due to low income jobs is something that is in need of change. Saying this, although there is a variety of issues amongst the medical community when concerning injustice, it’s our duty as future health care professionals to make a change.
Healthcare is a critical component of human survival. To sustain a healthy lifestyle, proper healthcare services should be offered based on universality and affordability. The access to healthcare has been, however, far from universal or affordable. For institutional, political and socioeconomic reasons, access to healthcare is characterized by growing disparities between healthcare service recipients. Institutionally, disparity can be witnessed in concentration of premium services in organizations which are better funded, having most qualified care providers and, predictably, having most sophisticated equipment and facilities.
Electronic medical records have great promises to the American healthcare system based on increased efficiency, improved quality, reduced costs, lower readmission rates, and fewer illnesses among others. However, these systems collect and store personal information of patients as well as their medical histories over long periods. The information is sensitive and equally useful for many people and organizations including insurance companies, financial companies, fraudsters, identity thieves, and criminal thieves among others. Unauthorized access of the personal information or medical histories to these parties poses great risks to the health, life, and welfare of patients. Therefore, health organizations and practitioners should guarantee the privacy, confidentiality, and security of personal health information through compliance with HIPAA as well as installation of cyber security measures to deter unauthorized access, modification, damage, or distribution of patients
Our current health care culture has defined the aspect of compassion in relation to practice as an unfeasible ideal rather than a staple of practice. “The Francis report identified compassion as the key missing component in health care delivery that enabled the increased morbidity and mortality at the Stafford Hospital. It highlighted the real dangers to patient safety when compassion was found lacking” (Francis 2013). Merely acknowledging that nursing practice should embody compassion is not enough, we must exemplify compassion to our patients through our communication, care and attitudes at work. A nurse’s occupation is not only to provide care for their patients physically but also mentally.
