Henceforth, based on the circular report that was given to us, it says that an improvement on health and safety culture was felt at all levels, a reduction in accidents, incidents and injuries; lost-time injuries reduced from staff. As a care worker working for Heritage Healthcare, I saw an improvement on our work practices. The support also improved by providing us more relevant training like administering medication training to help us follow the right procedures in administering medication based on the Administering Medication policy. The training helped me develop my health and safety skills to become more competent and confident at work. The most significant positive health and safety culture that I noticed is a boost to staff morale and pride because of acknowledging our performance in doing health and safety assessment.
Physicians are held to a standard of safe and proper delivery of care. Physicians are not only expected to deliver effective care but also satisfy patient’s needs. Reducing fatigue may improve patient care and safety as well as improve health care provider’s performance satisfaction and increase communication. Hospitals can lose federal funding for performing poorly on patient satisfaction surveys. Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) is the first national and publicly reported survey of patients perspective of hospital care.
There was an experience where a nurse was assigned to him and she gave him hundred percent attention and took complete care of him. She kept him relaxed, communicated on a personal level and listened to him. Consequently, as we discussed earlier, this has improved Mr.Taylor’s experience. Key facilitators for Mr. Taylor’s health care experience Mr.Taylor is generally satisfied with the health care provided by the dp clinic chosen by him. The surgeon he visited was brutally honest with him which helped Mr.Taylor understand the seriousness of the injury.

BCMA is one of the news technologies in improving patients’ safety. It is a promising technology in the effort to reduce medication errors. BCMA had been used for quite some time in many hospitals however; just recently it had used to address patients’ safety. BCMA gives a valuable verification by ensuring that five rights are confirmed prior to medication administrations (Meadows, 2003). Used of BCMA had attributed to improved staff, patients’ satisfaction and the most important is improved patients’ safety.
In fact, approximately 50% of all cancer patients will go through this type of treatment (4). Delivered in three forms, radiation therapy utilizes beams of radiation targeted at tumors to treat cancer. The first X-ray was invented in 1896 by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, and just three years later, radiation was used to treat cancer (2). Originally, treatment involved low voltage diagnostic machines and radium, but scientists soon found that daily doses of radiation over the course of several weeks improved the therapy. In the beginning of 20th century, scientists discovered that in addition to treating cancer,
Brian Jack was granted funds from the AHRQ for research project on readmissions. “His research demonstrated that patients who are discharged from the hospital with a clear understanding of their after-care instructions are 30% less likely to be readmitted within 30 days or visit the emergency department than patients who lacked this information” (Clancey, 2013). Project BOOTH (Better Outcomes for Older adults through Safe Transitions) was developed to reduce readmission rates by offering resources and expert mentoring to clinicians, enhance patient and family education, and improve the flow of information to health care providers in the inpatient and outpatient setting. Another resource to reduce readmissions is the Patient Safety Organization. It offers clinicians and health care organizations the ability to voluntarily report, share and learn from patient safety information without fear of legal
Nasal polyposis is a common disease in Rhinology which is better treated with Endoscopic nasal sinus surgery. The Rationale of this study is to assess result and success of this procedure in patients of Nasal Polyposis in our population and to compare its result with the result of previous study in last 5 years of our population.1 There is better visualization, good outcome and success rate and less recurrence of nasal polyps with endoscopic sinus surgery. In our population most of the cases of Nasal Polyposis are still treated with conventional surgical procedures which have no better outcome and success, more recurrences and complications. If results show good outcome then Endoscopic surgery will be
A way radiology can contribute to society after the Boston Bombing, the doctors who took care of the patients told about the very important roles that all of the CT scanners and radiologist played in the after math of the Boston Bombing. The radiologist performed 57 X-rays and 16 CT scans as a whole. Another way this contributes to society is by researching if higher priced exams worked as good as lower priced exams. One experiment that people in an interventional radiology department have done is see if the more expensive vertebroplasty worked any better than the less expensive and less used vertebroplasty. The results were that they both worked about the same.
