Falls are the event described as “an unintentional coming to rest on the ground, floor, or lower level, but not as result of syncope or overwhelming external force” (Trepanier, S., 2014). Falls are preventable, unfortunately still happen in health care settings. “Risk factors for falls include sedative use, cognitive impairment, lower extremity weakness, poor reflexes, balance and gait abnormalities, foot problems, and environmental hazards” (Trepanier, S., 2014). When falls happen it may affect patient’s health, prolong patient’s stay in the hospital and increase the coast for the hospital. “Patient falls are a leading cause of injuries in hospitals, considered to be among the most expensive adverse events, and continue to be a patient safety concern” (Albert, S. M, 2014). It is very important for the hospitals to have fall prevention programs. First, patient’s who get admitted to the hospital are thoroughly assessed for potential fall risk. This initial step is very important to identify what preciouses should be taken to prevent the fall incident. Depending of the patient’s condition, age, history and medications the care plan is established and prevention actions are developed. Most common fall preventions measures, which apply for all the patients include putting the bed in low position, putting call light and personal items within the patient’s reach, putting non skid sucks on the patient, two side rails up. Patients with higher fall risk, such as those who has history of falls, has condition (mental or physical) and is taking specific medications will require more interventions by health care professionals like providing assistance with ambulation and transfers, relocating next to the nursing station, checking on the patient frequently, making sure no objects are in the way and providing adequate lighting.
Nurses play a major role in helping to establish fall…...

... like doing. If it is too hot or too cold, nobody wants to be there. However, if it is too comfortable, no one would want to do anything. A nice chill breeze would motivate the guests to want to get up and participate in activities. The food and beverage that will be catered out to this event would be cocktails and small appetizers in which the servers would be walking around servings to the guests. If it were a sit down plated entree, it wouldn’t allow the guests to interact much with everyone. Of course, there would be enough tables and chairs for all guests to sit down, relax and have good conversation with one another. It is never fun to have an event full of strangers and having the host of the event create awkward ice breakers. The important part of an event is the connection strangers have with one another after attending the event by sharing a common ground. As for the pharmaceutical company, the best type of activity for the attendees and their guests is to have slideshows of what their company is about, raffles, trivia questions pertaining to the medical field, a comedic emcee, and a mingle hour, in which the guests will have a chance to talk to each other and ask questions. Once they are all loosened up and feel more comfortable with one another, perhaps sometime in the middle of the event, a dance session with a DJ would be fun and appropriate. The show is over and now it is time to thank the guests and have them remember this special event. A photo......

Never Forget

...Tommy had become part of the ground. At least he felt that way as he watched the dew and the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch , don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to be done. Some animals just ain’t no damn good and got the be killed...

Never Event

...CMS AND HOSPITAL REINBURSMENT FOR NEVER EVENTS Never Events are errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and healthcare professionals, and providers. The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), in reference to particularly shocking medical errors such as wrong-site surgery that should never occur (Rosenthal 2012). The CMS issued new rules in 2008 that halt payment to hospitals for treatment of preventable patient complications and injuries, which referred to as “Never Events”. Ten categories of hospital-acquired condition that are reasonably preventable were identify by CMS (ECRI 2008). These are pressure ulcer stages III and IV; falls and trauma; surgical site infection after bariatric surgery for obesity, certain orthopedic procedures, and bypass surgery ,vascular- catheter associated infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; administration of incompatible blood; air embolism; and foreign object unintentionally retained after surgery All these are preventable conditions and are subject to nonpayment. This rule that halt payment to hospitals for preventable patient complication and injuries, has tremendous effect on hospital nursing practice. (Herb 2009). As the public becomes aware of the new CMS rules, legal concern have been raise about an increase in malpractice claims related to hospital acquired conditions. Strict liability imposes legal responsibility...

Medicare and a Never-Event Involving a Patient Transfer Case

...Medicare and a Never-Event Involving a Patient Transfer Case Week #7 Application MMHA-6205: Health Law and Ethics August 19, 2013 Introduction Who would have imaged the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) initiative would increase the exposure risk to both physician and health care facility alike because of the term “never events”. Never events are inexcusable medical errors that should never occur; the initial list of 28 events defined as “adverse events that are serious, largely preventable, and of concern to both the public and health care providers for the purpose of public accountability” was compiled by the National Quality Forum in 2001 (Sohn, 2011); pressure ulcers or bedsores was included on the initial list. As for the increased risk exposure for physicians/health care facility, it comes in two forms, the risk of; not being reimbursement by the government and other health care providers; unknowingly file a claim for payment to the government as a result of a never event, as well as; increased medical liability along with the added expense of defensive medicine, which cost the US on average approximately $89 billion per year. CMS (the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is a federal agency within the US Department of Health and Human Services that administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with state governments to administer Medicaid and other health related insurance programs (Tavenner, 2011)) “never event” to...

Never Again

...Never Again I’ve had enough. Why am I living like this when I don’t have to? I have my own life to live. There’s no reason as to why you, my own father, can control me. I might only be 12 but I can make my own decisions. “Hey Dad, can I go to lunch with Mum?” At this point I was cheerful and enjoying my morning… Well that changed quickly. I didn’t know what I’d done. He lost it. I only asked to go to lunch, what’s the big deal? He was completely mad at me. He was yelling at me until he got in the car and screamed out the driveway. My brother had no idea what he could do to help. Neither of us had ever seen Dad like this. I was a complete mess; my eyes were red and puffy and had tears pouring down my cheeks. Everything hurt. I was scared and upset. I had no idea what to do. How was I supposed to know what to do? I was only 12. I walked back to my room after yet another argument with Dad. For all I know he is oblivious to what or how I feel. Why shouldn’t he be? Yes he’s my dad but I can’t speak my thoughts. Everything has been kept in for too long. I was only just holding together. It was Dad’s weekend to have me but I wanted to go to lunch with mum. I’m not sure what happened to him the night before, or whether it was just his feelings and emotions that had built up over the years, but what I asked must’ve been the last straw. He lost it. He took it all out on me. I could hear the tyres coming back down the gravel driveway. I got up and sat outside on...

Never Been

...When you think about it, there isn’t a day that goes by without being tempted. Temptation comes along our paths every day in our lives. Whether it is from the foods we eat, the people we talk to, or the choices we make, knowing that sometimes they aren’t right. This is why the rapper Logic decided to inspire, or rather uplift, any of his audience going through some adversities or rough patches in life, in his song “Never Been”. Throughout his song, he uses countless examples of how he overcame adversities of his own and is reassuring that immoral temptation is challenging but he believes that we can all overcome it. Logic opens this song with the lyrics, “I’ve been workin’ like I’ve never been, I struggle everyday but I just can’t let the devil in”. Logic is saying how he recognizes how difficult it is to refrain from temptation and how he learned from every situation he has been in. We not only deal with our personal demons, but we also come in contact with outside demons such as the environment that we are put in and by some people perceiving to be the devil to destroy us. In these lyrics right here, Logic is saying we struggle everyday but we can’t let anything or anyone distract us from what we want. These demons, whether internal or external, try to corrupt us but he wants us to know that we are not alone. Immediately after these lyrics, Logic raps “And if I knew back then what I know right now, what I know right now, I’d be better than I’ve ever been, better than...
