Traditionally, the role of the media has been to impartially relate the events of the day. However, in recent years, news sources have taken on a more ideological point of view. Why do you feel this has occurred?
In shaping your answer, make sure to include your opinion of what this means for the future of journalism in America. Is the media likely to return to impartially reporting news in the future, or could this trend of ideological bias grow even stronger? Also, provide an example that illustrates how the media and the electorate are shaped by one another
Whooping Cough is a disease that doctors may no longer recognize because it has become so rare. Alarms went off in California in the autumn of 2011 when nine infants died from the disease. There have been outbreaks of other preventable diseases such as a 2013 mumps outbreak in Monmouth County New Jersey, and a 2015 measles outbreak at Disneyland in California. In 200 to 400 words, please discuss a recent outbreak. Include at last two scholarly references (using APA formatting and style) to guide your discussion.

Correlate medications with relevance. Identify a priority problem that is reflected with the patient’s status (laboratory results, assessment, and medications). 5 or more priority interventions accurately correlate with priority problem and goal.

Public health, especially in the media and on the internet, is full of opinions, some true, some false, some contradictory (1). “Masks don’t work to stop Covid”, “Vaccines cause autism”, “Gun violence relates to mental health”. True? False? We can only confirm/refute these opinions by using research.
Read below ( or this CNN article (Links to an external site.) link) on what the Surgeon General feels is the biggest Covid-19 vaccination threat. (Remember, this is your textbook! This all counts as reading. )
(CNN)With a dangerous Covid-19 variant on the rise, health experts are urging people who are still hesitant to get their vaccinations. But the US surgeon general warns a big obstacle stands in their way: Misinformation.
“There is so much misinformation out there about the vaccine, coming through so many channels — a lot of it being spread on social media,” Dr. Vivek Murthy told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “It’s inducing a lot of fear among people.”

WEB & Social media is defined as low-cost tools used to combine technology and social interaction with the use of words. Companies and business entrepreneurs use this technological avenue to promote brands and products, to post corporate materials, and to connect users to a business home page through hyperlinks. Examples of social media used in marketing include Facebook, Google +, Pintrest, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, FourSquare, Reddit, Instagram, Snapchat, Yelp, etc. 1-What are the evolving rules and best practices of social media among small business communities, especially related to healthcare? 2-How could your web & social media be kept current?
A 69-year-old client in the medical intensive care unit has been diagnosed with acute respiratory distress and altered mental status. The client’s medical history includes asthma, hypertension, and diabetes. She is intubated and receiving multiple vasopressor medications for hypotension.
At 1200 hours: The client’s ventilator alarm sounds with the high-pressure alarm, and is found to be agitated, unresponsive to commands, demonstrating extreme facial grimaces localized to pain, and restless, with excessive movement of extremities noted. Vital signs include heart rate 125 beats/min (100 beats/min at 0800), respiratory rate 35 breaths per minute, BP 150/99 mm Hg (120/75 mm Hg at 0800), and SpO2 85% (down from 100% at 0800).
At 1205 hours: BP increases to 185/110 mm Hg, with a mean arterial pressure of 135 mm Hg. The monitor displays sinus tachycardia at a rate of 140 beats/min. The client is prescribed medication infusions of norepinephrine (10 mcg/min), fentanyl (75 mcg/hr), and lorazepam (2 mg/hr).
Fill in the matrix below. Then write up your rationales for each, in paper format, utilizing the case study rubric. * Do not copy and paste the case study in your paper. Write up the paper, and then attach your matrix as a appendix. Make sure to use full sentences, and write a paper.
Based on the 1200- and 1205-hour assessments and nursing notes, use an X to identify “Indicated” (appropriate or necessary), “Contraindicated” (could be harmful), or “Nonessential” (makes no difference or not necessary) nursing interventions to manage the client’s current condition.
Suction as needed
Provide additional oxygen
Increase norepinephrine drip to 15 mcg/min
Increase fentanyl drip to 150 mcg/hr
Increase lorazepam drip to 4 mg/hr
Assess mental status
“Health care reengineering is a powerful methodology that helps organizations reorder priorities, provide more cost-effective care, and increase value to customers. It should be driven by what the customer wants and what the market needs.” Health systems have begun to adopt innovative management strategies and systems engineering tools to improve their health care processes. Nurse leaders must create supportive hospital culture as the key to making important advances in quality improvement. There are key strategies that foster the reengineering of health care. Supportive hospital leadership should be involved in the work. By supporting and providing safe quality care from the top, patient outcomes will be more cost effective and positive. Another key component of a hospital culture conducive to quality improvement is encouraging individual ownership and accountability for patient safety and quality. Hospitals have pursued various strategies to increase staff ownership and accountability. The most commonly reported was to more explicitly include and detail quality improvement responsibilities in job descriptions and performance evaluations for staff and in contracts with physicians. Identifying and promoting nurses and physicians to champion quality improvement efforts reportedly helps empower staff to engage in and move quality improvement initiatives forward. Nurse leaders have excellent communication skills. Leaders that actively communicate with and provide timely and useful feedback to staff reportedly are more likely to foster quality improvement all contributing to positive change in the health care environment. Improving health care quality and patient safety are nurse leaders contribution to reengineering health care.
Discuss how nurse managers and nurse leaders contribute to the reengineering of health care.
New technology—and the application of existing technology—only appears in healthcare settings after careful and significant research. The stakes are high, and new clinical systems need to offer evidence of positive impact on outcomes or efficiencies.
Nurse informaticists and healthcare leaders formulate clinical system strategies. As these strategies are often based on technology trends, informaticists and others have then benefited from consulting existing research to inform their thinking.
In this Assignment, you will review existing research focused on the application of clinical systems. After reviewing, you will summarize your findings.
Review the Resources and reflect on the impact of clinical systems on outcomes and efficiencies within the context of nursing practice and healthcare delivery.
Conduct a search for recent (within the last 5 years) research focused on the application of clinical systems. The research should provide evidence to support the use of one type of clinical system to improve outcomes and/or efficiencies, such as “the use of personal health records or portals to support patients newly diagnosed with diabetes.”
Identify and select 4 peer-reviewed research articles from your research.

You have a 17-year-old female that comes in with suspected pregnancy and limited family support. She is accompanied by her 18-year-old boyfriend who is the father of the child. While knowing she needs prenatal care, what resources and education would you try to provide and how would you encourage compliance in this vulnerable patient? What are some of the biggest risk factors that this patient faces and how can you provide quality care while being sensitive to the stigma that comes with teen pregnancy?
