Recruitment of Professional Nurses: The Evidence-Based Magnet Recognition Program® Magnet hospitals define hospitals that recruit and retain nurses by providing a positive working environment, as well as their excellence in providing high-quality nursing care (Schmalenberg& Kramer, 2008). They are international models for nursing standards. Other hospitals look to magnet organizations for ways to improve their patients’ results, reduce hospital stays, in addition to attracting and keeping the most qualified nursing staff (Yıldırım, Kısa & Hisar, 2012). In the early 1980s, the American Academy of Nursing (AAN) appointed a task force in hospital nursing practice out of concern for the numerous workforce issues that the profession was currently
She was selected as a Fellowship of American Academy of Nursing (FAAN). In summary, her journal explains two research studies she completed with the provided funds at her disposal. The first study incorporated King’s concept of time. Although nurses think it is more time consuming to use the bar code to scan patient’s bracelet before giving medication, it has improved the level of patient safety. Messmer’s current research study shows that communication between all members of the health care team, regardless of their position, attribute to the success of benefiting the most important person, the patient.
I did my clinical observation at Skyline Hospital in White Salmon, Washington. I am currently a receptionist at Skyline, which made it easy for me to find a hospital that was willing to let me shadow their radiology department. I was lucky that I had worked with the techs in the radiology department before. Having that familiarity made me much more comfortable shadowing and asking questions. I took this job at Skyline specifically to learn more about a hospital environment and how hospitals run.
Patient safety has received much recognition after the Institute of Medicine’s publication of “To err is to human: building a safer health system” , patient safety includes the avoidance, prevention and amelioration of adverse events emanating from health care delivery procedures and it comprises of systems of patient care, error reporting, and starting new systems aimed at reducing risk of errors in patient care as well as care functions which nursing has sole responsibility (Berland et al., 2012). The common media for the transmission of HCAIs are the hands of healthcare professionals, from patient to patient and within the care environment (Allegranzi & Pittet 2009). Patient safety is the ‘’patient’s freedom from unnecessary real or potential
 Whitney L. Jackson (2012) in his article revealed that James Lipcamon, out-patient imaging services manager for East Cooper Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant, SC, “patient satisfaction is a big deal for today’s radiologists, both in the hospital and private imaging center setting. For any patient coming into a hospital setting or an imaging center, they already expect our competency. That’s not what they’re mainly concerned about; they’re looking for the warm fuzzies,” he said. “And, if you’re in a competitive market, patient satisfaction is critical because word-of-mouth drives a lot of health care business.
Kaiser Permanente (KP) strategy as a brand was to make consumers comfortable with their brand and their values through the "Thrive campaign" (Lofgren, D. & Cantu, D., 2010) while the mission statement for the Golden Age Hospital (GAH) and Community Clinic (CC) as the "Golden Bridge, the bridge to good health and wellness" as its own campaign to market the new hospital. Therefore, in order to market "Golden Bridge” is use of online roadmap for healthcare marketers by Steve Letham because he stated that online media plays a special role in promoting its brand by 1. understanding its audience; 2. optimizing the website and 3. creating demand for their brand (Spur Interactive, 2009). Understanding its audience Since there is an explosion of baby boomers in the near future in the Orange County area, GAH advertisement should concentrate on the seniors audiences either by television, magazines, emails or billboards on GAH “Golden Bridge” the bridge to good health and wellness campaign by chronic disease management, great staff with state of the art
Finkelman, describes power as the ability to influence others and their decisions (2012). Based on Finkelman’s description of power I would consider myself as a powerful nurse. Often as a registered nurse, I have to utilize the power of persuasion through education and patient empowerment to convince and promoted healthy behavior changes to decrease re-hospitalizations. Furthermore, as an employee I am on a quality and improvement committee that meets monthly to identify ways the hospital can improve quality care, reduce cost, and implement evidenced bases cares/interventions. In comparison with my previous hospital employers it is my personal opinion that my employer is considered a safe place for nursing when it comes to patient to
By continuing to partake in the Quality Assurance program and self-regulating, behaviours can fulfill the standard of being “safe, competent and ethical practitioners” (CNO, 2014, pp. 3). Setting of First Year of RN Practice The ideal setting of my first year of practice, as an RN will be at the Juravinski Hospital in the hematology unit. I have always known that I wanted to work in oncology and my placement on the hematology unit solidified my decision to pursue this goal. During a clinical shift, I would be responsible for providing care to patients with malignant hematological diseases, completing pertinent assessments and teaching skills, such as how to care for the mouth when experiencing mucositis and how to avoid infections.

Most properly health care functions like admission, discharge, and transfer patient data maintained in Computer based Patient Records (CPR), Personal Health Information (PHI), and Electronic Health Records (EHR). The use of medical Big Data is increasingly popular
This study is consistent with other studies that examined the relationship among the physical attractiveness of healthcare settings, patient satisfaction, and perceived quality of care. Leonard L. Berry & Janet T. Parish, (2008) found that the design of the hospital impacts nurses and may impact their job satisfaction and stress, even the decision whether or not to remain a hospital nurse. A well-designed hospital is not only important to patients; it also is important to those who serve
The real-world business situation that I will be addressing by collecting and analyzing a set of data is that of a Hospital, specifically that of the hospital staff and the patient safety interaction. I have chosen this specific business as it is my hope to utilize this degree to become a director at a local hospital. In Hospital’s there are so many aspects that one needs to look at. These aspects can be broken down into individual pieces of data that can be analyzed and provide a clear outlook of change. A 1- The one question or decision relevant to a Hospital business that I will answer by collecting and analyzing a set of data is: Is there a relationship to the number of hours a Registered Nurse (RN) works and patient safety?
Week Eight Response to Jurgensen Michael, I chose the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role in the emergency department (ED) for my project as well. However, the CNL facilitating the implementation of care for the ED boarded psychiatric patient is brilliant, and not something I had considered. Likewise, our ED boards psychiatric patients, frequently for numerous days prior obtaining inpatient placement for them. In various facilities a physician assistant (PA) assumes the responsibilities for establishing ED boarded psychiatric patient care, however, the CNL stands as a considerably superior individual to expedite care during the transitional period for the ED psychiatric patient boarding for extended periods (Jayaram, 2006). Clearly, the implementation
These questions on the topic of how often Lovenox injections are required to be therapeutic versus how often heparin needs to be injected and the resulting patient satisfaction during the hospital stay. With the emphasis on patient satisfaction and the government guidelines for preventable hospital acquired problems, finding a solution to DVT prevention is important for nursing. One study by Arnold et al. (2010) directly compared the two drugs in question for this project and provided credible information to the development of an evidenced-based answer to the problem (Arnold et al., 2010). A second systematic review by Akl et al.

This book is interesting. I was interested in the way Bradley and Taylor points out that the most important factor to be consider is health. The author is a professor of public health and served as a hospital administrator in various hospitals, this shows that they have credibility in providing analysis of the healthcare. This book was written in 2013 so that the data contained in this book are still relevant today. Haugen, David M., and Susan Musser.
