Organizational Policies and Practices to Support Healthcare Issues


Quite often, nurse leaders are faced with ethical dilemmas, such as those associated with choices between competing needs and limited resources. Resources are finite, and competition for those resources occurs daily in all organizations.

For example, the use of 12-hour shifts has been a strategy to retain nurses. However, evidence suggests that as nurses work more hours in a shift, they commit more errors. How do effective leaders find a balance between the needs of the organization and the needs of ensuring quality, effective, and safe patient care?

In this Discussion, you will reflect on a national healthcare issue and examine how competing needs may impact the development of polices to address that issue.

To Prepare:

· Review the Resources and think about the national healthcare issue/stressor you previously selected for study in Module 1.

· Reflect on the competing needs in healthcare delivery as they pertain to the national healthcare issue/stressor you previously examined.


Post an explanation of how competing needs, such as the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients, may impact the development of policy. Then, describe any specific competing needs that may impact the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected. What are the impacts, and how might policy address these competing needs? Be specific and provide examples.

ARNP disciplinary sanctions are added to the bill in s. 456.072, F.S., (Section 5) to mirror a physician’s sanctions for prescribing or dispensing a controlled substance other in the course of professional practice or failing to meet practice standards. Additional acts for which discipline may be taken against an ARNP relating to practicing with controlled substances that are added to the Nurse Practice Act (Section 10) include:

 Presigning blank prescription forms.

 Prescribing a Schedule II for office use.

 Prescribing, dispensing, or administering an amphetamine or sympathomimetic amine drug, except for specified conditions.

 Prescribing, dispensing, or administering certain hormones for muscle-building or athletic performance.

 Promoting or advertising a pharmacy on a prescription form unless the form also states that the prescription may be filled at the pharmacy of your choice.

 Prescribing, dispensing, or administering drugs, including controlled substances, other than in the course of his or her professional practice.

 Prescribing, dispensing, or administering a controlled substance to himself or herself.

 Prescribing, dispensing, or administering laetrile.

 Dispensing a controlled substance listed in Schedule II or Schedule III in violation of the requirements for dispensing practitioners in the Pharmacy Practice Act.

 Promoting or advertising controlled substances.

Evaluate the effectiveness of one or more of these areas on quality patient care and health outcomes. Propose a potential health care reform solution to improve effectiveness in the area you evaluated and predict the expected effect. Describe the effect of health care reform on the U.S. health care system and its respective stakeholders. Support your post with a peer-reviewed journal article.

Week 5 Community Practice Experience Journal Reflection

What are your upcoming week’s specific learning goals and objectives as a Case Manager? What is your upcoming week’s detailed schedule at your community practice experience placement? Were there any placement items/issues that occurred this week that you feel your instructor should be aware of that are private in nature and are more appropriately shared here than in the discussion board with your classmates? Give a brief description of an objective you worked on this week. Make sure to cite at least one reference showing how your objective relates to the public health knowledge you’ve studied during this course or the public health course. You may choose to reference your e-text, journal articles, or videos you’ve studied during these courses or you may find an outside reference on your own to further enhance your public health knowledge and practices.

Remember, your journal entries are an important aspect of clinical learning as they serve to help you reflect upon and get the most out of your community practice experience. Therefore, your journal entry should include the who, what, where, and when of your community practice experience. Remember, this should simulate a dialogue that would normally take place face-to-face with your community practice experience instructor.

Experiment 1: Design an Experiment LAB

 Materials 100 Beans (10) 5 x 8 in. Bags Permanent Marker Masking Tape *Paper Towels *Water Note: You must provide the materials listed in *red. EXPERIMENT 1: DESIGN AN EXPERIMENT The following experiment is to be designed by you with the beans provided in the kit. You will design and execute the experiment to test factors that influence seed germination. Whatever your experimental design, be sure to include controls, both positive and negative, and make sure it is reproducible! NOTES ABOUT BEAN GERMINATION • The time to germinate will decrease if you soak the beans overnight before beginning the experiment. • It may take 7 – 10 days for the beans to “sprout.” • Make sure the paper towels remain moist for the duration of your experiment. PROCEDURE 1. Identify 10 – 20 variables that may affect seed germination. Record the variables in Table 5. 2. From your list of variables, select one to test. Form a hypothesis regarding why this variable affects seed germination. 3. Determine the positive and negative controls for your experiment. 4. To germinate the beans, place one folded paper towel into the 5 x 8 in. plastic bag. The paper towel should be moistened, but not soaking wet. Place ten beans in a horizontal line on each enclosed paper towel. Then, seal the bag completely. 5. Prepare three bags of beans for each condition (positive control, negative control, variable). 6. Use masking tape to hang each bag in the environment you select. 7. Collect data, and then create a table, including title, units, and any other useful information. 8. Select the appropriate type of graph, and report the data you collected. 9. Write a lab report for this experiment. 


Instructions: Read the following experiment and download the lab report template form supplied below.
Once you have completed your experiment and gathered all required data, upload the completed lab report and save a copy for your own reference and safe-keeping. Also, along side your lab report submission record and submit a brief (1 to 2 minute) video on your experiment/observation experience summary. For example, how did you feel while performing this experiment, what was the difficulty level, any obstacles you may have run into, etc..

musculoskeletal and neurologic

  Musculoskeletal and Neurologic System

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research the conditions affecting the musculoskeletal and the neurologic systems. Based on your research and understanding, respond to one of the following scenarios: A 58-year-old female is admitted for a work up for a complaint of neck and low back pain. During admission, you discover that she underwent a renal transplant six years ago. The patient also had blood work collected. When you review the findings, you notice that her serum calcium is elevated at 13.9 (Normal values range from 8.5 to 10.2 mg/dl), her CBC shows a hematocrit of 33%, and hemoglobin of 11.1 g/dl (normal adult female hematocrit Range: 37-47%, normal adult female hemoglobin range: 12-16 g/dl). What does this mean and what could be the underlying cause of her pain and her abnormal lab values? What other assessments would be helpful?
