Chanel then proceeded to sue Dr. Takla, Dr. Mohammad Rahman, the pediatric emergency room attending physician on duty; Darryl Coach; a social worker for Brookdale; and Brookdale. Although Chanel made several claims, the only claims that were actually relevant to her case and situation were as follows: medical malpractice case against Dr. Takla, Dr. Lewis, and Dr. Rahman; violation of New York Public Health Law 2805, which is just stating that a healthcare provider must obtain informed consent before performing a medical procedure, or else they can be held liable; Direct and vicarious hospital negligence; and finally, battery against Dr. Takla and Dr. Lewis. Although the plaintiff’s complaint contained a vicarious liability claim against Brookdale, the Armstrong jury was not charged that it could find the hospital negligent on a vicarious liability theory. The court, instead, told the jury that the plaintiff’s theory of negligence was that the hospital had an absence of proper written policies of procedures, poor training, and lack of experience in the emergency room staff. The plaintiffs also claimed the hospital failed to require its staff to follow well-recognized and established administrative regulations and hospital procedures.
Screen failures will be notified by Dr. X that they cannot participate in the pilot study because they do not meet the subject inclusion criteria. The data obtained by the screen failures will be immediately disposed for confidentiality purposes. b. Randomization Procedures After the participants receive permission to participate in the physical therapy rehabilitation study and completed the informed consent documents, the Principal Investigator will randomly assign the patients to either the balance, strength, or Dry Needling rehabilitation group through drawing a number out of a hat. c. Study Intervention i. For Drug/ device studies: Not Applicable 1.
PICOT question- In an adult inpatient psychiatric unit with patients with one or more active DSM-V diagnoses (P), how does staff engagement following TIC and the tidal model guidelines (I) compared to our current standard of care of maintaining therapeutic milieu and de-escalation as needed (C) affect incidences seclusion, restraints and harm of other patients and staff (O) over 12 month period (T)? A systematic review is usually conducted by experts to answer a clear clinical question by reviewing studies (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2015). The parachute articles states its design was systematic review of random control trials (Smith, 2003). After reading my peers comments and rereading the article, I see the satirical nature of the article.
Qualitative Critique Discussion I will be comparing and contrasting two qualitative studies: (1) an ethnographic study that examined the care and management of women experiencing early miscarriage in a hospital (Murphy & Philpin, 2010); and (2) a phenomenological study focused on the emotional needs of dying patients (Law, 2009). Ethnographers describe and interpret cultural behavior. They collect, describe, categorize, and analyze data. Their goal is to identify patterns in the behavior and thoughts of participants. The study should have more than one source of information, for instance interviewing and observation.
To combat recidivism, “the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers, and the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) worked together to develop the first ASAM Patient Placement Criteria.” (Belenko & Peugh, 2004) ASAM gave guidelines for patient placement of five treatment setting (early intervention to intensive inpatient treatment). Despite the popularity of this program, little evidence is known of the validity in term of treatments. Despite enrolling in these programs, success rates still suffer based on outside forces such as “educational deficits and sporadic work histories, which can affect long-term recovery and complicate the transition back to the community.” (Belenko & Peugh, 2004) This can be related to inmates not having marketable skills or limited employment opportunities which lead to relapse and parole violation. The article goes on to recreate a survey done in 1997 where inmates were randomly selected and interviewed and asked about their “current and past crimes, current and past incarcerations, prison infractions, drug and alcohol use, participation in substance abuse treatment and other programs in and out of prison, and socioeconomic characteristics.” (Belenko & Peugh, 2004) To measure the severity of drug use, the authors developed a five-point scale from least to most severe (one being “never used
For electronic records (EMRs), work with your organization’s administration and the software vendor to determine the method that works best in your EMR. Refrain from accessing the EMR until you speak to your professional liability insurer if you are sued or a claim is brought against you. If an attorney is retained on your behalf, he or she can and should obtain the records for you. When a situation with a patient becomes legal, it’s important to understand that there are two records that will be considered: the patient’s actual medical records, and the digital artifacts represented by the metadata—in other words, the record of how the patient’s information was kept, stored, and changed over time. Your commitment to maintaining thorough, timely records that are meticulously maintained and updated will go a long way towards protecting you and your organization in any legal issues that may
She started her journey into the field of medicine by becoming a candy striper (volunteer) at a psychiatric hospital. Jamison describes what she had observed as being, “fascinating, scary, terror, and sadness” (Jamison, 1996). Little did she know that this early experience into the world of mental illness would soon plague her. Jamison started her schooling at the University of California studying medicine at first, then switched to study psychology. During her student years at the University of California and eventually becoming part of the faculty there she would embark on her journey of understanding her mental illness while helping others who are experiencing mental illness as well.
There have been laws put in place to help the resident in nursing homes like no restraints. If a resident need to be restrained there must be a doctor to order that restrain for them to actually be restrained.

It is your duty to explain test preparations. Use simple, nontechnical language and check with patients to be sure they understand the information. In some cases, providing a written instruction sheet may be helpful. When you receive the test results, communicate them not to the patient but to the doctor. Only the doctor is qualified to interpret test results for the patient.
Patients and their family members should be preferably educated by the community mental health nurse about the illness, its course, and prognosis as well as the efﬁcacy, the potential side effects and costs of various drugs. Other family interventions should include support, problem-solving training and crisis intervention. There was robust and consistent evidence that there was a decrease in the risk of relapse at the end of treatment and up to 12 months following treatment. Moreover, it also reduced hospital admission during treatment and the severity of symptoms both during and up to 24 months following the intervention. (NICE, 2014) The ﬁrst known controlled trial study on the efﬁcacy of systemic family therapy at the Milan State University.
