Patient Care Conference 72 Hour Reflection What went well?

The patient was in his room, so I asked a nurse technician to direct the patient to stay in the day room for a while.
The emphasis of this method of job analysis is on the attributes, abilities and knowledge and individuals’ characteristics that are required by the employee to perform the desired duties. According to McCormick et al. (1967) the worker oriented method is more comprehensive of work-related areas as compared to the work oriented methodologies.

The opportunity for observing and participating in the nursing clinical allows for students to acquire the critical thinking skills necessary to become a competent and knowledgeable
To calculate the internal reliability of a scale Cronbachs alpha, α, is used. Cronbach’s alpha allows us to calculate the variance within an item and the covariance between any two items on the scale. For a scale to be deemed reliable α > 0.8. However, .7 is also acceptable. After testing the reliability, the α for all 12 items of the scale was revealed to be .82 which indicates good reliability.
Most supervisors look forward to training their subordinates, assisting them in the most promising time of their career preparing them to become future supervisors. Those employees typically become department heads, senior officers, full-time associates, and or shift leaders. The conflict in this is are they trained according to policy?

The incomplete record and physician inquiry process are all done through EPIC, Lexington Medical Center’s EHR. As soon as the patient is discharged any quantitative deficiencies are automatically flagged in EPIC which then sends the notice to the physician’s inbox. Physicians are able to correct any deficiencies where ever they have internet access they do not have to be in their office or the hospital. If the deficiency is found by an analyst it must be added manually (see example 11.4). A lot of the doctors will send the deficiency back stating that it is complete, when it really is not; therefor there must be a work queue for any completed deficiencies to be reviewed.
