Unit II Journal Assignment

 As you journey through this unit, and are honing in on your critical thinking skills, you might have recognized the information regarding the Game Plan. To help in your critical thinking process, the Game Plan, located on pages 38-42 in your textbook, consisting of 10 strategies, was created to help assist you in making critical decisions. Strategy number 4, Keep an Intellectual Journal, will be the main focus of this assignment, however, other strategies will be included. Be sure to read through the 10 strategies before continuing with this assignment. Throughout the week you are to keep a journal. Within this journal, list at least three situations that have occurred during the week that are emotionally significant to you (meaning things you deeply care about). The only journal entry requirement is to record these situations and respond to the prompts below. You do not need to make an entry every day. From your list, accomplish the following, while keeping each situation separate from the rest: 1. Describe each situation and explain why each was important to you. 2. Describe how you behaved, with precise details, in each situation. 3. Formulate at least two questions that ask what was going on during the situation, and explain your answer to each question as a means of self-assessment. 4. Of the nine strategies remaining, remember you are keeping an intellectual journal, choose two and explain how using them will help you in decision making to solve each situation you listed.

 PROMOTION OF PATIENT SAFETY MEMORANDUM To: Dorcas Floyd, RN BSN, MS, CENP Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer, Bessemer Hospital From: Student Name and title at job, RN Date: June 19th, 2017 Subject: Promotion of Patient Safety As you are aware, patient safety is vital when it comes to quality healthcare service. Unfortunately, patient errors at Bessemer Hospital have been on the rise, and this has led to a worsening of serious conditions, disability and even patient mortality. As a result, the credibility of our infirmary has declined, creating the potential of great financial losses. We can, however, address this problem by hiring temporary on-call nurses during peak patient hours. According to a publication by the Institute of Medicine (2004), 98,000 hospitalized American citizens die annually due to errors made by nurses. This serious problem is usually the result of either failure to follow management practices necessary for safety, or an unsafe work and workspace design. This is certainly true here at Bessemer, where recently one newly registered nurse was hurried into catheterizing a patient in preparation for an operation. This was done without sufficient supplies or supervision and, because of this, the patient suffered a severe urinary-tract infection with serious complications and an extended hospital stay. Thankfully the patient recovered, but even the slightest mistake, caused simply by rushing, can lead to a more severe problem that must be addressed. These problems clearly are the result of an increased workload and stress for nurses, but they can be reduced. Like many hospitals across the region, our nursing staff is low in comparison to the number of patients served daily, and this creates added stress and increases errors. To address this issue, we can hire a temporary staff on more difficult days to alleviate this burden. With an increase in our nurse to patient ratio, we can expect the number of errors to decrease as our fulltime staff will be able to focus on a smaller number of patients and will not have to rush through procedures and risk errors. Please contact me at [email protected] if you have any questions about this recommendation. By implementing this recommendation, you will see a great return on investment and allow our nurses to take better care of our patients, who are the reason this hospital exists.

– Why did you pick this story/what drew you to this story?

best practices

For the Unit 9 Assignment, you will synthesize your understanding of the theories, best practices, and current trends in human services to create a case presentation that would be used during a staffing meeting/case conference in an agency. While most of these meetings are informal, many agencies/organizations use a more formal approach. To prepare for this future job responsibility and leadership role, you will create a paper that could be used during one of these meetings. Use the paper structure below to organize the facts and recommendations for your hypothetical client.

Begin by deciding the type of agency and job that interests you, and imagine you are a professional working at this. (Note: The career planning exercises you completed for the Units 1-8 Learning Space Blog will help you with this part of the Assignment.)

Next, create a hypothetical client or use one from a prior exercise in our class. Follow the suggested structure below for writing your paper. Add relevant details and leave out minor ones that are not relevant to the client’s progress. While you will not be required to write papers for these meetings, you will be required to report this type of information and to be organized and prepared. This exercise will assist you in developing a case presentation for when you really will be making them.

Suggested Organization of Paper: use sub-headings to organize your information:Client name and demographics (no sub-heading)Presenting problem (sub-heading): What was the reason for the client enrolling in service at your agency? Be specific about the problem, but do not add many extra details by “telling the client’s story;” just write a few sentences about the problem as the client perceived it.Goal (sub-heading): What are the client’s main intervention/treatment goals? Be specific and add as many as you can think of that would relate to the full scope of services that your agency might provide. However, remember that clients may want to limit their goals to three goals at a time or fewer so it is important to prioritize goals.Needs (sub-heading): What other needs does your client have that others in your agency might be able to provide or assist in making referrals?Crisis (sub-heading): Probably, your client is not currently in crisis, so you would simply report that the client is stabilized and there are no ongoing crises for the moment. If your client is in the middle of a crisis, you would briefly describe it, only giving facts that are relevant.Recommendations (sub-heading): This is the part of the paper (meeting) where you provide your professional opinion about the continued direction of the client’s progress, ideas for future goals, planning or strategies for helping the client, resource referrals, and any other suggestions that you have to advance your client’s care. You will spend time using information from your past classes to support your prioritized recommendations, so make this one of the longest sections of your paper.

This paper should be a minimum of 6–8 pages or 1500–2000 words to respond to the sections in the case presentation. Write the paper using guidelines of Standard American English, and consult the Kaplan Writing Center if you have questions about grammar or format. Remember that all work must be your own and plagiarism is not tolerated. Be sure to review the plagiarism policy in your syllabus. References are not required; however, any citations for scholarly academic references to support of your recommendations should be in APA format, including the addition of a reference page.
