On January 1st, 1998 the combination of two great hospitals and institutions by James Lennox led to the creation of one of the most impactful healthcare institutions in New York; The New York Presbyterian Hospital. Located in the Metropolitan Area of New York, the New York Presbyterian Hospital is a hospital that offers great care to patients by using advanced technology.

Being part of this cultural competency competition has strengthened some of my own thoughts and beliefs about how healthcare should be provided.
Medicare reimbursement is partially based on a facility’s Star Rating. A critical component to this is patient surveys and HCAHPS. I have seen a push toward the customer service experience. Indeed, I feel strongly that every healthcare worker including nurses should treat each of their patients with respect, equality and do the absolute best to meet their needs. However, I feel that the extreme degree to which this competency is being held, i.e. having to remake a patient’s coffee three times because it wasn’t the proper milk-sugar ratio certainly takes away from the more important aspects of life saving. I always greet my patients with a smile; I always treat them like I would treat my family member, and I always ask “Is there anything else I can do for you?” before I leave the room. And this is not too much to ask, it is simply treating humans with integrity. But the “have it your way” hospital experience expectancies sometimes make our jobs harder than they already are. That’s just my personal opinion.
A career as a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner is a natural extension of my personal, educational, and research experiences. Although my path to nursing has not been a straight line, every experience that put me on this path has shaped my passion and dedication to psychiatric nursing.
This report addresses the issues arising from the case study report of Guelph General Hospital. Over the years, the hospital has experienced challenges in the delivery of services to consumers. This is especially due to the expanding numbers of patients that have affected the normal functioning of the hospital system. Starting with the improvement of the emergency department, GGH has focused on the practices that would accommodate the increasing demands for medical services. The lean methodology is one of the implementations that aimed at reducing wastage within the system, in order to create value for the services offered. However, the metric indicate that aspects such as consumer convenience and efficient handling of the patients have been noted. On the other hand, most of the employees are developing resistance towards the new system due to the high level of accountability required. The report therefore looks into the suitable decision that the hospital management should consider.
There is a controversial issue in regards to the violation of the HIPAA privacy rule concerning a client who was received at a small town hospital emergency rule. As a privacy officer, this issue has been bought to my attention. HIPPA violations are serious offenses, and ultimately, it is my responsibility to take corrective actions to resolve this matter upon this investigation.
The reason I chose to become a nurse was due to my strong desire to help those in need. The profession of nursing, itself, is guided by human dignity, altruism, trust, and compassion (Shahriari, Mohammadi, Abbaszadeh, & Bahrami, 2013). I realized that the underlying values of nursing are parallel to my own personal philosophies, and therefore played a role in my decision to becoming a nurse. However, the overlap in values was not the only factor in my decision. Four years ago, my mother became pregnant with her third child and I was her support system throughout her entire pregnancy. During this time, I noticed the difference in care provided between the doctor and the nurse. The nurse offered a more trusting relationship, emphasized the use of holistic care, and provided empathy, which was much appreciated. Thereafter, I began volunteering at Lowell General Hospital and experienced my own interpersonal relationships with the outpatients. I felt truly satisfied during my time there, as I was able to apply my values and experience the gratitude and warmth that radiated from each patient that I helped. Therefore, I chose to pursue a career in nursing, as it is similarly based on my own beliefs and makes me feel like I make a difference in the lives of every person that I

The Sky Lakes Medical Center chart note from February 2, 2014 (an ER note). It states that Ms. Harris was restrained front seat passenger in a vehicle traveling at an estimated 25 mph when it was struck on the front driver’s side by a vehicle traveling at an estimated 40 mpg.
