 Determine the importance of a thorough understanding of the legal liability of health care institutions from the Chief Medical Officer’s viewpoint. When you come across a legal issue that you do not understand, describe what your action steps might be.

The CMO is a clinician and has clinical credibility and understand the practice of medicine. The CMO also has formal training in business, management, and leadership. Understanding the practice of medicine is critical, but the CMO must also understand the business of medicine both from a private practice as well as an academic perspective, depending on the setting. Credibility is required not only in the medical staff lounge, but also in the C-suite and the boardroom. The effective CMO is able to bridge the chasm between cost and quality because they understand both sides of the equation and know that, like a balance sheet, assets must equal liabilities. Neither a management degree nor a business degree alone is sufficient; real-world experience in healthcare organizations is essential. Specific skills are that the CMO must be able to credibly present and administer the agenda of quality to the governing body while supporting an economically viable budget, as well as the organization's strategic plan and legal policies and procedures( Cors,2009).

If I come across legal issues that I don’t understand I will involve risk management department and review all documents needed such : Incident identification and reporting, Methods of identifying and addressing potential tort claims, including the sequestering of medical records, and the investigation of medical accidents and near accidents. Review of patient complaints concerning quality of care issues. Review and documentation of sentinel events using a root cause analysis or other recognized method. Review of requests for medical records from…...

...This discussion will enable us to lay some of the theoretical groundwork for communication and public speaking. Let's begin by exploring the basics. How do you define the term communication? Take a few minutes to go through the "Is This Communication?" activity included in this week's lecture material and report your results. I personally define communication as any individual trying to convey his/her thoughts to someone other than his/her self. Although I scored average in the results of my Communication Anxiety Report and Analysis, I barely made over the hump of the very low CA. I am not sure what it means right now but I am okay with it. I should improve by the end of the course. We are in the same page with this one. But as I mentioned in my original post that I am comfortable with final report of average even though I barely made it over the very low CAR. The good news is we are taking this class and I am positive that we are going to improve our scores. According to Wikipedia, Public speaking is the process and act of speaking or giving a lecture to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain a listening audience. Public speaking is commonly understood as face-to-face speaking between individuals and an audience for the purpose of communication. It is closely allied to "presenting", although the latter is more often associated with commercial activity. Most of the time, public speaking is to persuade the......

...assertion Collaboration Strategy High assertiveness and enables cooperation and mutual resolve. Situations may not be created because this strategy is hard to develop. 2. Which of the available conflict management strategies is most appropriate for the current situation with David and James? Provide your rationale, including what factors you considered in making your selection. Your response should be at least 100 words. Seeing that David and James both have high performance reviews in accordance with Riordan Manufacturing intranet, the Collaboration Strategy would be best to use in resolving this situation. With the collaboration strategy both David and James will need to sit down in a face to face with management and have the discussion over this issue and figure out how to resolve in with open communication. Due to mediation this will resolve any miscommunication through David and James communicating without mediation. The point of collaboration is to satisfy the concerns of all parties in search for a mutually beneficial outcome, after clarifying their differences they can find resolve and move towards achieving goals. 3. If the selected strategy is not successful, what is your alternate strategy? Provide your rationale for this selection. Your response should be at least 100 words. If the collaboration strategy is not successful the next approach would be compromise strategy. In the compromise strategy there is never a clear winner or loser......

...Discussion The results of the experiment did not support the created hypothesis that the poisonous enzyme PTU (Phenylthiourea) was a competitive inhibitor. In the experiment to test whether PTU was competitive a catechol oxidase substrate was added to the solution to determine it’s inhibition. As more of the substrate was added, no reaction occurred and the substance remained consistently clear. However, the results indicated that the catechol that was used continued to be inhibited by the PTU. Due to this inhibition, catechol oxidase was present in potatoes and the results suggested opposite from the hypothesis. Enzyme inhibitors are compounds that counteract substrate-enzyme interactions. Two classes of enzyme inhibitors are competitive and noncompetitive. Enzyme inhibitors work as one of the major controls in the biological systems. Competitive inhibitors act in the spot that are meant to be for it’s intended substrate. At any given moment enzymes may bind to its inhibitor, the substrate or neither. They are unable to bind to both at the same time. This inhibition competes with the substrate for binding sites on the enzymes. However, a competitive inhibitor is reversible if the concentration of the substrate is raised to high levels while the inhibitor is constant. Noncompetitive inhibitors do not compete for its position in the active site. It decreases the activity of the enzyme and binds equally even if it’s bound to the substrate or not.......

Post your initial response to the discussion question no later than Thursday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. Post responses to at least two classmates no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT The most significant business problem JetBlue faced during the 2007 crisis was inadequate communication. In this case JetBlue CEO David Neeleman stated, “Among the primary culprits: inadequate communication protocols to direct the company’s 11,000 pilots and flight attendants about where to go and when; an overwhelmed reservation system; and a lack of cross-trained employees who could work outside their primary area of expertise during an emergency” (Argenti, 2011, p.105).JetBlue spokesperson Sebastian White stated, “We thought there would be these windows of opportunities to get planes off the ground, and we were relying on those weather forecasts” (Argenti, 2011, p.104). This risk taking by JetBlue ultimately lead to several critical constituency issues. Nine JetBlue jets were forced to sit idle on the tarmac for more than six hours....

...counter such patient’s beliefs. Race and Ethnicity can also impose certain problems. I have seen cases where a patient doesn’t want to be treated by an African American/ Latin –American Nurse and vice versa. In my hospital, the best approach used is by giving good introduction and recommendation about the nurse during bed side reports and this has kept the patients convinced and at ease. Tigsts you made a great point by mentioning that nurses need to start educating patient from beginning of admission. In hospital where I practice after quick assessment of the patient , admission data base will be done whereby we ask questions which include code status ,religion, race, diet and patient’s preferred way of learning either by reading, discussion, videos or combination. While doing this we try and create good nurse/patient relationship and patient will be free to discuss with you their needs and necessary educations will be given where needed with respect to their beliefs and culture ...

Eco Week4 Differentiating Market Structures

...elastic demand curve but not perfectly elastic like that of perfect competition. This is because the firm has some degree of monopoly power. This monopoly power arises from product differentiation (Pindyck & Rubinfield, 2009). Though the firms are in the same industry selling similar product each firm’s product has some unique characteristics that attracts some segment of the consumers. Hence the firm can enjoy some amount of market power and earn super-normal profit at least in the short run. In this form of market the firm has to make constant endeavor to stay ahead of its competitors in terms of market power. So the firm uses product promotion strategies and also invests in product innovation. Strategies to Earn Higher Profit The discussion in the previous section is centered round the degree of competition existing in different forms of market. The analysis of different forms of market suggests that there is intense competition in both oligopoly and monopolistic competition. Thus in these forms of market the firms have to take strategies to increase the market size and enhance their market power. In a monopolistic competition the firms can take product promotion campaigns like advertisement, direct selling activities and more importantly, product innovation to produce goods with unique characteristics distinguished from the other goods. A good with distinguishable qualities that are preferred by the consumers will make the good more inelastic like that of a......

...Week 6 Discussion Question 1 Rausell Harvey Ashford University PSY 600 Introduction to Graduate Study in Psychology Instructor Kathryn Morris January 11, 2016 Imagine someone and or the media painting an image of you or your illness in the wrong way or light. How would that make you feel? Being judged unfairly or falsely because you have a mental illness is wrong, period. The bad stereo types proceed out in such representation; mentally ill people as incapable, threating, messy, dirty and unworthy. The media have gradually become aware of these detrimental portrayals. I started watching this show on A&E called Intervention. Is a Rehab reality show that showcase extraordinary causes of addiction and substance use; were their family and friends get together and confront their loved ones. There’s no quality metric for improvement, however one consider the excessive recidivism of drug delinquents heading back to prison, the persistent relapsing of individuals whom proceeded through community based rehabilitation programs and any person who’s fooled with a junkie in their personal life. The problem is that this is a reality show and it not really about intervention it’s about ratings. Reality shows often choose people for the show that will boost ratings, act a fool, fight argue etc. This tend to open up ethical standards when choosing people for the show. This documentary / reality show shows the day and life of addicts. It takes the addicts and their......

Week4 Answer

...cash flows. It helps investors and creditors predict future cash flows in a number of different ways. First, investors and creditors can use the information on the income statement to evaluate the past performance of the enter-prise. Second, the income statement helps users of the financial statements to determine the risk (level of uncertainty) of income—revenues, expenses, gains, and losses—and highlights the relationship among these various components. It should be emphasized that the income statement is used by parties other than investors and creditors. For example, customers can use the income statement to determine a company’s ability to provide needed goods or services, unions examine earnings closely as a basis for salary discussions, and the government uses the income statements of companies as a basis for formulating tax and economic policy. 2. Information on past transactions can be used to identify important trends that, if continued, provide information about future performance. If a reasonable correlation exists between past and future performance, predictions about future earnings and cash flows can be made. For example, a loan analyst can develop a prediction of future performance by estimating the rate of growth of past income over the past several periods and project this into the next period. Additional information about current economic and industry factors can be used to adjust the trend rate based on historical information. 3. Some......
