...What is a Nursing Home? Nursing Homes are places for people who don't need to be in a hospital but can't be cared for at home, more commonly referred to as skilled nursing and rehab centers. Nursing care is typically provided for people who need long-term care or rehabilitation after surgery or are recovering from a more severe medical condition like a stroke. These communities provide all of the personal care and services of an assisted living with the addition of 24-hour nursing care.

...Health Care Utilization John Q Scenario John Q. recently moved to a rural community. He works full-time, but qualifies for Medicaid because of his low income. John has high blood pressure and his father recently had a heart attack. Thus, he decided to call to find out which providers nearby accept Medicaid. While there are local doctors, he discovered that the closest primary care physician who accepts Medicaid is a 40-minute drive and appointments must be made 2 weeks in advance due to the number of patients at the practice. In addition, the practice does not offer weekend or evening hours. John usually catches a ride to work with a friend or relies on public transportation. (University of Phoenix, 2012). Based on the above scenario, John Q. needs to see a doctor to keep from becoming a victim of a heart attack. There are many factors involved with John Q. using health care services. He has a low income, receives Medicare, no local physician available, limited transportation, and yet he has a need to see a doctor. These factors are described as predisposing, enabling, need, mutable, or immutable. The immutable factors cannot be changed, whereas the mutable factors could change. How dose one change them is the question? This question is important because the changes need to be made so that everyone can have access to health care no matter what area they live in. One of the major factors affecting John Q’s......

...hospital setting or SNF because it is their “space”. I also enjoyed the lack of chaos and gossip which has been noted at the majority of nurses stations in any location. The true value was to see how important it is to be well prepared for each home visit. The necessary knowledge, skills, documentation, and medical supplies as it pertains to a specific client. Principles learned were the importance of verification of current doctor’s orders for treatment, prescribed medications, and follow up visits required. Observations for client safety included, placement of furniture, unobstructed floor space for walking, medical equipment, cleanliness, proper food storage, compliance with medications and instructions. The practice of proper hand hygiene before and after the visit, client assessment, teaching and education. Proper documentation of the visit was written in detail and a copy provided to the client. The following factors may be considered in all areas of nursing care in any setting: level of self-care, ability for activities of daily living; level of nursing care needed; prognosis; education needs; mental status; level of compliance with instructions from healthcare professionals. Ways in which the nurse adapted care to the home setting are briefly stated in the following: Changing a Foley catheter on a male client, setting up a sterile field while kneeling on the floor as the client was sitting at the edge of the bed; setting up an IV without an IV pole or pump using a...

...Education, Health Care, and Immigration are three very controversial issues prevalent in American society. I believe that all three of these issues are difficult for American citizens and society to come to public judgment, but of the three, I think health care is the most difficult. To start off, Health Care has been an ongoing problem in the United States since the end of World War II. Over these past sixty years, there have been numerous attempts to come to public judgment and fix the system but America has yet to come up with a successful plan to please and supply the appropriate care for all its citizens. Due to the amount of time Health Care has been an issue in American society, reflects just how tough it has been to come to public judgment. Health Care is also an issue that affects the lives of every American citizen directly. No matter what age, race, class, or gender a citizen will play a role in the system because every American has “health.” Compared to Health Care, Immigration and Education either indirectly or directly affects the lives of American citizens, which in my opinion makes them slightly easier for American society to reach a public judgment. Immigration is an issue that has been in and out of the spotlight throughout the history of the United States. There have been more important issues that the American public and government chose to address first. The issues concerning immigration are that many Americans are upset that foreign born people...

Long Term Care vs Home Health Care

...Long Term Care Facility vs. Home Health Care Nursing Karen Waite Eng/102 July, 2014 Will mom or loved one receive better care at home or in a nursing home? This is a hard choice to make, but which is the best? In this paper, it examines the efficiency of home care programs, assisted living and long-term care programs. It examines the care and cost of the different programs with respect. The decision of whether or not to place an aging parent (or a loved one) into a long-term care facility, or to try and to keep them in their own home or yours is one that many American families are facing each day. Factors in dealing with this decision are too numerous to count, but we will address a few of them in the following paper, like the financial aspects, psychosocial, and meeting the overall needs of our ever aging parents or ill loved one. Taking care of your loved one is a full time job in most cases. Long-term care facilities are a traditional approach to caring for the elderly or chronically ill members of society. These facilities are set up in a couple of different ways to provide specialized care depending on a person’s need. In some cases, mom may not need a great deal of care with her daily living, but may need help with fixing food or remembering to take her medication. So, the first point of our discussion is assisted living facilities. These are apartment type communities that specialize in assisting seniors who may have a problem accomplishing their normal......

...REFLECTION Organizational Leadership For Building Effective Health Care Teams Stephen H. Taplin, MD, MPH1 Mary K. Foster, PhD2 Stephen M. Shortell, PhD3 1 ABSTRACT The movement toward accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical homes will increase with implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA will therefore give further impetus to the growing importance of teams in health care. Teams typically involve 2 or more people embedded in a larger social system who differentiate their roles, share common goals, interact with each other, and perform tasks affecting others. Multiple team types fit within this definition, and they all need support from leadership to succeed. Teams have been invoked as a necessary tool to address the needs of patients with multiple chronic conditions and to address medical workforce shortages. Invoking teams, however, is much easier than making them function effectively, so we need to consider the implications of the growing emphasis on teams. Although the ACA will spur team development, organizational leadership must use what we know now to train, support, and incentivize team function. Meanwhile, we must also advance research regarding teams in health care to give those leaders more evidence to guide their work. Ann Fam Med 2013;11:279-281. doi:10.1370/afm.1506.

...Home Health Care and the Value of the Registered Nurse Home Health Care and the Value of the Registered Nurse The home health care system is one of the fastest growing industries in America. Today, there has been a vast growth of services with approximately 7.6 million clients receiving care from about 83,000 providers (National Association for Home Care and Hospice, 2008, pg 1). This is an increase of 63,000 suppliers since 2004. Factors affecting these figures are; an aging population, rising health care costs, reimbursement plans, advances in technology, and a trend of clients desiring this avenue of care for various health related restrictions. Home health care encompasses the collaborative efforts of various professionals all seeking the common goal of determining the needs of the client and their families. When understanding the importance of the Registered Nurse in the home health care setting, it is beneficial to consider the pros and cons as well as the various functions of the nurse as caregiver, educator, and case manager. Home health care nurses require advanced knowledge and skills, usually at the Baccalaureate level, in the delivery of either generalized or specialized care for the client in this setting. Common areas of concern include cardiac, respiratory, permanent disabilities such as Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis, hospice, and dialysis to name a few. Nursing in the home care industry has many advantages as compared to nursing in the......

...doubt that the American health care system has a history of being in disarray. Despite the introduction of the managed care, which was intended to help bring costs down, the cost of health care continues to rise. In addition to the spiraling costs of the health care system, millions of Americans still could not afford any form of health care insurance. The question is what can be done about it? The answer is neither easy nor clear cut. In 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010—commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare, after its major backer, US president Barack Obama—sought to reform a number of aspects of the US health insurance industry, as well as improve the access to and quality of health care services.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton made health care her platform and insisted that universal health care is achievable. Although affordable health care for everyone sounds like a positive step forward, the American public was not sure enough of that statement to support her election as president.

...M3 D2 - Two psychological perspectives and their contribution to good practice in care homes The psychodynamic approach has many beneficial aspects when it comes to health care and care services and settings within the UK. This has allowed us to understand how certain things may affect people’s childhood experiences in negative ways and effect their future. It also allows us to understand how people may potentially develop mental health illnesses. Freud stated that mental illnesses can be caused due to disagreement between ID and superego and the overuse of defence mechanisms which could be caused due to bad childhood upbringing. An example would be experiencing abuse as a child or losing a close relative. This helps us today by highlighting the importance and severity of everyone’s childhood and how the protection of children should be priority. This will allow us to decrease the amount of mental health illness cases later on. It has helped the adaption of social services and care services because they have more of an understanding of what to provide and how to care for the child. Also, in schools, it helps us to understand that children may respond with defence mechanisms such as aggression or denial in circumstances that don’t need that response due to the fact that it is their personal way of coping and dealing with what is happening in their private lives e.g. at home. The psychodynamic approach has helped to develop medicine so we are able to......

...home 1. Describe the differences between nonprofit and for-profit hospitals. The general belief or theory is that nonprofit hospitals do a better job of focusing on their people; that is, they provide better quality of care. On the other hand, for-profit hospitals are more business oriented; more emphasis is placed on cost and operating efficiency than nonprofit hospital does. I believe this is a significant difference because while staff members in a nonprofit hospital may see themselves as caregivers, staff members in for-profit may seemingly see themselves as cogs in a production wheel. The mission and purpose for these two types of hospitals is also a very important and makes a significant difference. Financial pressures have forced all hospitals to focus on costs and operating efficiency, blurring the line between money and mission. Still, nonprofit employees believe more strongly that their organization's mission makes them feel that their jobs are important. It seems that the mission of care delivery tends to be more prominent in nonprofit hospitals. Hence, it may be safe to say that nonprofit hospitals do a better job than for-profit hospitals of making their staff feel that their contributions are valued and meaningful. Lastly, another difference would be in the area of materials and equipments needed to do the work right. With a focus on operating efficiency, for-profit hospitals frequently operate with lower staffing ratios (Woolhandler & Himmelstein,......

...Health Care Support Services Paper: Medicare Ashley Alexander HCS/212 August 21, 2011 Barbara Williamson Health Care Support Services Paper: Medicare Good health is important to everyone and many people are trying to find ways to maintain good health. There is a lot of people in the United States who do not have any type of health care coverage or insurance to go to the doctor to check him or herself out or to cure any current sicknesses and medical issues he or she may have. Low-income elderly people are the ones who are more likely to experience many health problems that require medical services as well as those elderly people that are living on a fixed income than those who are better off with very good income. Many of the elderly are living on a limited income and faces unexpected medical expenses that he or she cannot afford to pay for because of their income. When the elderly get sick and medical care is needed, they depend on Medicare for assistance with their medical bills because they do not have any other way to pay for their medical bills or go see a doctor. “Medicare is for people 65 or older, those who are under age 65 with certain disabilities and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease” (Medicare, para.). “Medicare is a federally funded system of health and hospital insurance for persons aged 65 and older and for disable persons.
