Enhancing Quality and Safety

• PRINT
• For this assessment, you will develop a 4 page paper that examines a safety quality issue pertaining to medication administration in a health care setting. You will analyze the issue and examine potential evidence-based and best-practice solutions from the literature as well as the role of nurses and other stakeholders in addressing the issue.
Health care organizations and professionals strive to create safe environments for patients; however, due to the complexity of the health care system, maintaining safety can be a challenge. Since nurses comprise the largest group of health care professionals, a great deal of responsibility falls in the hands of practicing nurses. Quality improvement (QI) measures and safety improvement plans are effective interventions to reduce medical errors and sentinel events such as medication errors, falls, infections, and deaths. A 2000 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report indicated that almost one million people are harmed annually in the United States, (Kohn et al., 2000) and 210,000–440,000 die as a result of medical errors (Allen, 2013).
The role of the baccalaureate nurse includes identifying and explaining specific patient risk factors, incorporating evidence-based solutions to improving patient safety and coordinating care. A solid foundation of knowledge and understanding of safety organizations such as Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN), the Institute of Medicine (IOM), and The Joint Commission and its National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) program is vital to practicing nurses with regard to providing and promoting safe and effective patient care.
You are encouraged to complete the Identifying Safety Risks and Solutions activity. This activity offers an opportunity to review a case study and practice identifying safety risks and possible

Developmental sequence and skills

A primary responsibility of a Speech Language Pathologist is to plan and implement intervention services. During this assignment, the student will apply knowledge of typical vocabulary development principles to the process of planning intervention for a child with an expressive language delay.

Instructions: You are going to begin direct speech and language intervention with Evelyn (the child referred to you in Week 2) to improve expressive language skills. Your assessment and observations indicated that her expressive language skills were at the 12-15 month level. In a 2-4 page, APA formatted, paper create a treatment plan for Evelyn that includes the following:

One treatment goal focused on increasing the number of different words Evelyn uses. The goal needs to be appropriate for a child of Evelyn’s age and language level, specify the word class, and 10 specific words within the class that you will target.
Review pages 153 through 158 in the text (start at the section titled Innate Biases Make Word Learning Efficient and read through the section titled Semantic Enrichment) with regards to setting up a rich lexicon. Provide a detailed plan for two hands-on intervention activities that you will use to teach your vocabulary targets. Include a listing of the materials that you will need for the activity. The activity and materials should be appropriate for Evelyn’s age and language ability.
Outline the developmental sequence and skills that you expect Evelyn to move through as she increases her expressive vocabulary and eventually begins to combine words into two-word phrases.

The struggle for liberation

In order for the oppressed to be able to wage the struggle for their liberation they must perceive the reality of oppression, not as a closed world from which there is no exit, but as a limited situation which they can transform.’ (Freire, 1972: 34)

Similarities and differences between the two cohorts

Create a list of five people that you know that use social media at least 2 or more hours per day. This group of people will make up your first cohort. Then create a list of five people that you know that either do not use social media or use it very rarely. Take into account age when creating the cohorts, and try to keep the ages as similar as possible between the cohorts. Keeping a certain level of consistency in the two cohorts will help to negate the potential effects of generational differences. Provide a brief description of each of the ten people you are going to interview divided into their respective cohorts.

In other words, list the five people in the social media at least 2 or more hours a day, and provide a brief description of each along with why you chose them. Then provide a list of the five people that rarely or never use social media, and provide a brief description of each along with why you chose them.

Interview the participants to learn the similarities and differences between the two cohorts as it relates to attitudes, lifestyles, and relationships. Write a two-page paper comparing and contrasting what you learned about the two cohorts.
