The main focus here would be to make patients aware of the laws that are set in place that allow them to care. Also, letting them know that if a patient denies them care or provides them less care than other patients. Another problem we are faced with is the fact that if we argue that patients have rights, then we also must look at the rights of the physician. That is why all of these laws have come about, because basically the patient is putting their lives in the hands of the physician. The physician has decided to go into this career and this career is for human service.
• Unsecure feeling of GP doctors. • Lack of commitment from management. I noticed during a meeting with the staff that the specialists felt frustrated and that affect their performance..Regarding the referral system , it needs management commitment and a help from primary health care center because it will be very effective if the referral system work in applicable manner. A referral system that the patient referred from the health care organization to another, depending on the doctor's decision according to the patient needs. While in the city of Sur the referral system consists of these steps: First step: Patient goes to primary health care center and examined by GP doctors.
EFFECTIVE COORDINATION OF ACTIVITIES OF THE HOSPITAL TO IMPROVE PATIENT’S CARE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CONCEPT Coordination is one of the management functions and it is defined by Merriam Webster dictionary as the process of organizing people or groups so that they work together properly and well. It could also be defined as the process of organizing the various elements of a complex whole to function accurately and efficiently. Coordination in any organization is very vital as organization and also helps to maintain and ensure efficient operations in every department through effective communication and supervision. Any organization without co-ordination amounts to just an experience which may or may not impact positively on the staff, it is important
Meaning the hospital gave all the responsibility and the control to the physician so it would be less liable for the doctor’s faults. This situation would take vicarious liability off of the hospital and placing blame on the doctor who did the actual procedure on the patient. Another strength that the hospital can argue in its defense that the doctor was an independent contractor contracted to do work for the hospital. For instance, in case
As for private hospital we do practice cost saving and by recommending this system my organization would be able to achieve cost saving as well as incentives and improved efficiency in delivering high quality and safe care for our patients. I do know that cost would be a main barrier in getting the hospital to implement this system. However, I strongly believe that no matter how much we spend it is still nothing compare to peoples life. The reason people seek treatment from us is because they trust that healthcare providers will deliver safe care. To practice safe medicine is indeed the core for any healthcare organization.
Existence of legal duty: Whenever a layman approaches a person who possess certain skill, or knowledge, the other party is then under an implied legal duty to act in such a manner so as to protect that person to his greatest effort and extent. The medical profession is one such section of society on which such a duty has been imposed in the strictest sense. Every time a patient visits a doctor for his ailments he does not enter into any written contract for care, but there is an implied contract and any lack of proper care can make the erring doctor liable for breach of professional duty. And if the doctor is incompetent to perform his duty it accounts for
Outpatient services “eliminates inefficient, ineffective or unnecessary processes in a hospital setting” (Grubem et al., 2013). Not only does this benefit the hospitals with expensive procedures but it also helps the patient with costs. This will also benefit the hospitals so they could have more room for patients who really need to stay in the hospital for more serious diseases or use the hospital beds for “community based emergency” situations (Torrens & Williams, 2008). Other forms or alternative medical care is also available to patients such as chiropractors, acupuncture, or other holistic medicine that can help in a person’s well-being. There are more and more people turning to alternative medicine especially to those who do not have health insurance or ones that cannot afford “conventional” therapy because it is too expensive (Shi & Singh,
The hiring of reliable and consistent staff can reduce the turnover rates and increase the chances of consistency in staff. Therefore, requiring staff to maintain permanent positions can create familiarity among the doctors, nurses, and inmates. Also, being familiar with the inmate’s medical history, exposures, and risk factors can reduce mishaps and confusion. As warden, in my opinion, this may increase the efficiency of nurses and physicians on staff by requiring them to adhere to specific
She worked on the nursing home part of PCHC. The doctors do their own diagnosis codes. She makes sure the codes are correct. If the codes are not specific enough she will email the doctor. If the codes are not correct, the insurance will not cover.
Ethical Dilemmas in Nursing Numerous situations present with ethical dilemmas in the field of providing and receiving nursing care. Although laws and regulations are in place to guide healthcare workers in setting up care plans and in making choices while following those, day-to-day events may challenge those choices. Clients and their families may have requests or needs, outside of the plans already set, where values and beliefs are clashing. One such dilemma is placing a patient in restraints. Restraints can be placed on a patient in three different ways: chemical, physical and by seclusion.
As healthcare professionals it is part of our job to help look after the patient and make sure that all legal documents are in order. Sometimes when patients come into the hospital it can be difficult at times for them when they are feeling bad in knowing exactly what is going on. There are cases where it’s
I will also discuss the charges pressed against Dr. Zhou for violating HIPAA laws. HIPAA became a law in 1997. This law was enacted to protect patient’s health information in a healthcare setting. This was maintained through workplace compliance, anticipating possible threats, and ensuring confidentiality (HHS, 2015). Every workplace
Organizational managers are the ones who plan, organize, lead, and control what resources they have. On top of all of that, they are also responsible for enacting HIPAA into their day to day routine. HIPAA is clearly a huge deal, so the employees must understand what it is and what it entails so they do not turn out like Jamie Knapp. First off, the manager must teach employees about how to secure medical records. Not only do records need to be kept from people outside the workplace, but also from employees that aren’t authorized to see the information.
