...Latest Technological Development in Hospitals 1. Patient identity confirmation When patients admit to the hospital, they are required to register. During the traditional registration process, nurse will fix a 2D barcode on patients’ forearm in order to identify patients. Today, nurse will take a photo of patient as well and this photo will store in the database of patient. No matter what treatments, surgeries or even food patients are going to take, staff in the hospital would use their own PDA to reassure that things are doing on the right patient by checking the barcode and patient’s face. 2. Centralized vital signs monitor system Vital signs, including pulse, respiration rate, body temperature and blood pressure are important signals to determine a patient’s health condition. Sudden change in a particular signal may represent one’s emergency condition. In this system, all patients’ vital signs will be recorded and analyzed in real-time. If the data of any particular patient is not at the normal state, warning signal will be sent to corresponding staff’s PDA. 3. Electronic medical fact sheets and forms All medical fact sheets, recording facts of patients, such as blood sugar level, would be completed by PDA in electronic basis. The PDA used by staff can be connected to different medical devices, such as blood sugar level tester. Staff are not required to fill in any kind of forms and data will be sent to the database once nurses or doctors confirmed the......

...Electronic Health Records Abstract I am a complete advocate for switching to computer-based medical records. This is done completely electronically, versus the other paper method of dealing with medical records. Using hard copies of patient records are still commonly used in hospitals and doctor’s offices, but are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Healthcare professionals are trading in the traditional pen and notepad for electronic data entry and storage devices. Keeping records electronically allows all healthcare professionals involved to have access to all of the patient’s medical history, status of immunizations and lab results as well as x-rays. A record of the patient’s known allergies and medications, and billing and personal information such as height and weight. Electronic Health Records The submission of medical health records electronically has been helping the medical field, hospitals and doctors offices greatly since being implemented. Using electronic health records offers much better continuity, communication, coordination and accountability of patient records. I read in an article about EHRs and sums up what people using the computerized electronic health records feel, it seems that building a virtualization of EHRs can be very expensive, but ultimately works well and it does everything that they need it to.

...>cases Akron Children’s Hospital, Part A >Abstract Northeastern Ohio is a highly competitive health-care market, especially for the care of seriously ill children. With powerhouse health care institutions like the Cleveland Clinic venturing into the children’s care segment, Akron Children’s needed a way to differentiate itself. The research profiled in this case helped develop the positioning of Akron Children’s hospital and its promotional approach that resulted in an increase in its bed-occupancy rate, a key metric in the health care industry. >The Scenario The Midwestern hospital market is fiercely competitive, especially in Northeast Ohio. Akron Children’s Hospital, which competes in this environment, was established in 1890 and today is the region’s largest pediatric care provider with 253 beds. It offers 30 practice areas of medicine and surgery, specialized for children. Akron Children’s operates, however, in the shadow of two nationally recognized hospitals in nearby Cleveland: Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic. Rainbow, with 244 beds, has been ranked among the top five children’s hospitals nationwide by both U.S. News and World Report and Child magazine (which rates neonatal care at Rainbow second in the nation). The Cleveland Clinic, with 47 child beds, is not ranked for pediatric excellence but has earned a reputation as one of the top three hospitals in the country. Even in such company, Akron Children’s has also distinguished......

Record-Keeping Paper

...Keeping track of children’s progress and growth over time are critical tasks for teachers. In Montessori, continual assessment is almost innately built into the essential functioning of an authentic classroom. The daily use of observation combined with the ability of the learning materials to reveal a child’s understanding and rigorous record keeping enable Montessori teachers to closely follow their students’ development. In the classroom, there are also additional tools such as daily recording of activities by the child and regular one-on -one conferences with each child that contribute to the teacher’s effort to assess every child’s progress. There are several different ways in which we specifically keep records in our classroom. Record keeping is of vital important to ensure that the classroom runs smoothly, and that all the children are accounted for, and that they are kept safe. We use record keeping to assess the children’s development, as well as to keep the classroom functioning efficiently. There are several different methods in which we employ to ensure that the classroom is kept functioning efficiently and optimally. These include Montessori Records Express (MRX), Observation forms, daily sheets, attendance rosters, accident/incident forms, and the social media platform Instagram.

Hospital Negligence

...Hospital Negligence LaTonya Jefferson HCS 478 September 26, 2011 Negligence is defined as conduct lacking in due care and is equated with carelessness (Guido, 2010). An act can be considered negligent if it is a deviation from the standard of care that a reasonable person would do or what they would not do. At the Neighborhood Hospital, negligence has been cited due to the wrong limb being amputated on a patient. We will look at negligence vs. malpractice and whether the circumstances presented indicates negligence, as well as whether or not there is a case to pursue malpractice. As stated above, negligence is an injury that is caused by carelessness, but the injury is not intended. Gross negligence is caused when someone deliberately acts in a way in which they know or should know will cause harm (LaMance, 2011). For healthcare professionals, any act of negligence can be a basis for a malpractice lawsuit. According to Guido (2010), to be liable for malpractice, the person committing the wrong must be a professional whose misconduct, lack of skill, or fidelity in duties results in injury, suffering, or death due to carelessness or lack of foresight. In a court of law, in order to prove negligence or malpractice, the plaintiff (the injured party) must be able to prove certain elements to establish liability (Guido, 2010). These include duty owed the patient, breach of duty owed the patient, forseeability, causation, injury, and damages. Duty of care......

Lakeside Hospital

...HBSP Product Number TCG 5 rP os t THE CRIMSON PRESS CURRICULUM CENTER THE CRIMSON GROUP, INC. Lakeside Hospital A hospital just can’t afford to operate a department at 50 percent capacity. If we average 20 dialysis patients, it costs us $425 per treatment, and we’re only paid $250. If a department can’t cover its costs, including a fair share of overhead, it isn’t self-sufficient and I don’t think we should carry it. op yo Peter Lawrence, M.D., Director of Specialty Services at Lakeside Hospital, was addressing James Newell, M.D., Chief Nephrologist of Lakeside’s Renal Division, concerning a change in Medicare’s payment policies for hemodialysis treatments. Recently, Medicare had begun paying independent dialysis clinics for standard dialysis treatments, and the change in policy had caused patient volume in Lakeside’s dialysis unit to decrease to about 50 percent of capacity, producing a corresponding increase in per-treatment costs. By February of the current fiscal year, Dr. Lawrence and Lakeside’s Medical Director were considering closing the hospital’s dialysis unit. Dr. Newell, who had been Chief Nephrologist since he’d helped establish the unit, was opposed to closing it. Although he was impressed by the quality of care that independent centers offered, he was convinced that Lakeside’s unit was necessary for providing back-up and emergency services for the outpatient centers, as well as for treatment for some of the hospital’s seriously ill inpatients.

Has technology really changed the way things are done…. and has it changed for the better or worse? Hospitals in the United States of America emerged from almshouses that provided care and custody for the ailing poor. Rooted in this tradition of charity, one of the 1st noted hospital opened in 1736. Bellevue Hospital in New York City was home to a 6 bed ward. The hospital as we know it today started to emerge about 60 years ago, beginning around the time of the civil war. The war itself kicked off the need for professional nursing, specialized departments and services. Doctors were in high demand. But was technology keeping up with the growing need for medical attention? Let’s look at how a setting a broken bone has changed over the years.
