Arrival

Wednesday 7 Jan 15

On our arrival at Kansai Airport, Osaka around 7 o clock with accompanied by Professor Naoki Ohshima, we experienced a nice weather but a little bit cold with temperature around 4-5 degree Celsius. Luckily, all students had prepared themselves with warm clothes.

From there we had moved to Hiroshima for another 4 hours by express bas. Our first impression of Japan since arriving were the cleanliness and living cost is very high in Japan. It was very hard to find any kind of rubbish and waste in every corner. This shown that Japanese people are very high disciplined and civilized people. The dustbins prepared with certain categories such as for plastic, bottle and can as well as the others. For high living cost, we can take an example a set of lunch meals. It might cost us Yen 1000 equal to almost RM30 means that in general living cost in Japan almost triple times higher than in Malaysia. Second thing, which gave us unforgettable memory, was the delicious foods. Even we can easily find Halal Foods especially for Muslim students.

Mazda Museum and Factory Visit

On second day, we had visited MAZDA, one of the biggest Japanese carmaker. We had experienced a tour on Mazda Museum where we had learned about the history of MAZDA since the beginning 1920. From its history also explained about the fallen and raised again after Atomic Bombing and so on.

Latest production vehicles, exhibitions on Engineering and development of the new products are also available. Mazda Development efforts are focused on new environment-friendly technologies then “Zoom-Zoom” concept-incorporated car manufacturing begins.

The vehicle manufacturing process from planning to production and the latest technologies in the assembly plant are very efficient and productive. But sometimes, we can still find some workers have ample time while waiting for next cars in the assembly line.

The Mint of Japan Visit

We were very fortunate to have a chance to visit Japan coins factory. The history and activities of the factory also been explained briefly. We also had been acknowledging that this factory wild held Sakura flower festival each year because there are a lot of Sakura trees in the compound.

Visit inside factory also very interesting because the machines do most of the jobs. All were automated. Only a few people will involved in the whole process of making the coins especially in quality and inspection division as well as maintenance department. This is shown how technology played important part in Japanese industries.

Mitsubishi Cement Factory

After that we had move to Fukuoka to visit Mitsubishi Cement Factory. The company is very vast with mostly very advance and gigantic machineries to ensuring good materiel can be selected to produce varieties and type of cements. The most surprising fact was that this company having just only 80+ personnel to run this factory smoothly. Again, Japanese technology and quality system proved that they applied it better that most of the other cement companies.

TOYOTA Visit

Our visit to TOYOTA Factory was the most exciting visit we had. This factory which mainly to produce Lexus luxury Toyota car provided a close up to the system applied by Toyota to ensure productive and high end quality car can be delivered to the customers. Toyota that has their own quality system calls JIT (Just In Time) shown a different perspective in car manufacturing. The encouraged their personnel to give an ideas in how to make their work more convenience and more practical in ensuring high productivity and quality end product. In assembly line, we can easily seen that one personnel can do many things and al tools and parts required will be delivered on time and with enough quantity. The workers in assembly lines also have been provided with portable and adjustable chair which make them confortable to do their work and reduce any unnecessary movement.

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, (CMS) requires hospital to meet and operate to the accreditation standards. This assures CMS that patients, who pay for services with their Medicare or Medicaid insurance, are receiving the best of medical care. It is imperative for Nightingale to meet the Joint Commission requirements not just for the ability to collect revenue, but its symbol of accreditation hanging in the hospital lobby, tells the public the hospital has met national patient standards.

Accreditation Task 4

...is constantly affected by changes in the health care system and other factors. It is the responsibility of the hospital to be aware of such changes and modify its practice and align its goals in order to better serve the community at large. In short, it means the hospital needs to maintain compliance with the Joint Commission standards and provide consistent and quality care to its recipients. Compliance is a difficult task to achieve. It requires great effort on the part on the administrators and work force and requires the collaboration of interdisciplinary teams to bring about the desired effect. In order to monitor compliance, the hospital utilizes a periodic performance review (PPR) tool to assess its performance by continuous monitoring and performance improvement activities. The PPR provides the chassis for continuous standards compliance and focuses on the essential systems and practices that affect patient care and safety. The hospital self-evaluates its adherence with all Joint Commission Accreditation Participation Requirements, National Patient Safety Goals, related Elements of Performance (EPs), and develops a Plan of Action for all areas of performance identified as being non-compliant. The hospital also develops Measures of Success (MOS) for determining whether the organization is successful in resolving identified problems.

A PPR concentrates attention on procedures, methods, and processes that contribute an environment that provides for proper care and emphasizes patient safety. NCH has shown to be 100% compliant with the majority of standards including: Infection Prevention and Control, Right and Responsibilities to Patients, Human Resources, Transplant Safety, Emergency Management, and Performance Improvement. During the last inspection NCH was found to be non-compliant in the following areas: National Patient Safety Goals, Record of Care, Environment of Care, Nursing, Treatment and Services, Leadership, Life Safety, Provision of Care, and Universal Protocol. Trending Areas of Concern The PPR revealed numerous issues in all areas of NCH. In order to address issues that affect patient safety and accreditation it is necessary to focus on issues that are found to be present in several areas of the facility. These patterns and trends of non-compliance often expose a weakness in policy, procedure, or training that needs to be addressed in order to ensure patient safety and accreditation compliance standards are met. The PPR identified the following trends of non-compliance: verbal orders authenticated in a timely manner, prohibited abbreviations, lack of proper documentation, and clutter in hallways.

The purpose of this executive summary is to outline the current status of compliance of the organization for the priority focus area of communication, namely the standard UP.01.01.01 which is named the “Conduct a Pre-procedure Verification Process” as noted by the Joint Commission standards. A.2. The primary area of focus I chose to review was the communication aspect. I feel that communication is vital in any business, especially health care. Clear communication improves patient care and the quality of care. This is evident when time is taken to verify a patient or a procedure. When things go wrong due to misidentification of a patient, not only does that cost time and money for the patient as well as the extra burden of having that wrong fixed, but it also costs the hospitals too. Their costs are increased by trying to fix the issue and then legal issues to follow. The best way to avoid any mistake and/or injury is to adopt a more vigorous verification system.
