The employee then must submit certification from their PCP documenting reason for medical leave and expected time off from work. Once approved from the executive officer, the FMLA request is sent to ICA’s out-sourced human resources at CoStaff. After human resources approves the employee is able to take medical but must use all of the PTO minus one day upon their arrival back to work. While on leave, the employee must submit certification every two weeks to qualify for paid leave at 80 percent of their biweekly income. Before returning to work, the employee must submit fitness-for-duty certification and will be reinstated to their previous position, pay, and all benefits prior to
This document only becomes effective when it reaches the hands of the health care team caring for the patient (Alfonso, 2009, p. 43). A durable power of attorney is enacted by a legal document which names a person of 18 years of age or older as a surrogate decision maker allowing them to make all health care decisions if a person become unable to do so (Goldberg & Bennington Jr., 2013). This individual may also make bank transactions, sign social security checks, apply for disability, or simply write checks to pay the utility bill while an individual is medically incapacitated (Nabili & Shiel Jr., 2015).

All members must be educated on the different roles and functions of all positions. Tensions, misunderstandings, and conflicts caused by differences of opinions and interests can interfere with effective interdisciplinary communications (Lancaster et al., 2015). While this study was performed in a hospital setting, I wonder if the results would be the same in a clinic? It is not unusual for a physician or an APRN in a clinic to only have a UAP working with them. As patient loads are increasing and providers have less time to interact with the patient, it is essential to include all feedback from the UAP.
This meeting gave all parties an opportunity to present their perspective of the issue. “Disciplinary expertise is maximized when members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team can routinely employ strong relational skills and effectively coordinate their work with others” (Weiss, Tilin, & Morgan, p.2014, p. xxiii). Resolution The interdisciplinary meeting and subsequent follow-up meeting achieved a successful resolution. The appointments for the newborns would continue to be blocked; however, an alert would be added to the blocked appointment that only I or my colleague could use or unblock them. The other part of the resolution was that the discharge planner would unblock the unused appointments first thing Monday morning, and send an email notifying the involved disciplines that the unused appointments were available for use as
I will be assigned to a new patient next week, and I will make sure that I will know everything about all the medications the patient takes. That will be done in order to know what I am going to be administering and how dangerous it will be if any of them are administered incorrectly. I will make sure all preventable complications will not occur. In order to do that, I need to know the function of the medication and what they are really for based on the patient’s diagnoses.
Her answer was that nursing leadership meets every two years to assess the strategic planning by using Strength, Weakness, Objectives, and Threats (SWOT) Analysis. Question two, three and four were about utilization of the strategic plan, her thought, and the strength of the strategic plan. Dr. Massengale took a moment to think, and then she replied, “It is hard to say, but the plan was to find better ways to improve the health while providing excellent care for our veterans, but it would not have been possible without involving all stakeholders in the discussion.” (J. Massengale, personal communication, 2017). She continues to say that the strength of a good succession plan, is to involve the front-line staff as well as the veterans
Working in a clinic allows me to vision how my private practice will operate. After shadowing for several weeks, the long eight hours of standing and assisting patients was second nature to me. I have the opportunity to work with pediatric and geriatric patients. Although, I have experience working with both outside of the field medicine, I want to continue while in my career. While interacting with geriatric patients, who tells ten-minute stories before mentioning their real symptoms, I realize patience and diligence is a skill I must possess.
I use critical thinking skills at my work environment daily engaging in conflict resolution for patient’s. I handle all the billing accounts for every patient in the office and consider making reasonable decisions daily. Sometimes patient’s come into the office and do not have sufficient funds for copayments or minor procedures. In order to determine if a patient can be eligible
I chose to take part in the gastrointestinal medicine service for our mandatory clinical week since I enjoyed the GI block greatly and heard it was a good mix of ruminating on problems and doing procedures. My assigned team was with Dr. Saloojee and his band of residents. On my first day, the first person I met with was Dr. Stephanie Collins, PGY-5, and we began patient rounds. The first patient I met on service was really medically complex: a middle-aged female that presented with chronic diarrhea that severely affected her quality of life, with a long-standing surgical history including small bowel resections, antrectomy due to a perforated ulcer, and a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube. She was in the hospital for five months at this
