G Direct Nursing

 1. Present key information about the topic as appropriate (e.g., definition, overview/background, significance, the impact of the chosen topic). Tie your discussion to either home health, hospice, or palliative nursing (not acute care nursing). 2. Discuss the topic in relation to home health or hospice nursing roles– Apply your findings to your nursing roles by proposing what you (nurses) can do to enhance the individual/family’s quality of life through nursing assessment, interventions (e.g., direct nursing care, health promotion, health education, and disease prevention), and evaluation. 3. When you write, focus on one area of community-based nursing fields- home health OR hospice OR palliative care. If you really want to do both(e.g., home health and hospice), you must be able to discuss the differences in nursing roles. For example, if you choose a cultural competency topic and you want to discuss both home health AND hospice nursing roles, you will discuss the differences between home health nurse and hospice nurse roles. Home health nurses may focus on improving the patient/family health by considering their cultural beliefs related to religion, traditional beliefs, family traditions, etc. Hospice nurses may focus on helping the patient and family prepare for death, loss, and grief based on their cultural beliefs.

Mini –case study #1:

Everyone loved Bob’s smoked brisket. His combination of wood for smoked flavor and his own techniques created an excellent product. Friends and family keep telling Bob he should open his own BBQ restaurant and make money selling his brisket.

Time passes and a local property (former 50’s gas station) is available for rent. With reinforcement from those friends who encouraged him earlier and three key family members who committed to being part of the business – Bob opens Bob’s Bad Barbecue (BBBQ). Bob and the family team worked on an expected cost list that included his rent, utility connection/monthly bill, insurance, permits, etc.

They also created their menu – a simple selection of 3 primary meats – beef, pork, and chicken. Five side dishes, fresh baked (frozen) dinner rolls, two flavors of homemade clobbers, and brownie squares.

Equipment was both purchased and rented. Bob had to buy another smoker to handle volume. The refrigeration, freezer and ice machine was rented. The used convection oven was purchased. They used a three compartment sink for cleaning.

Service is counter order with someone bringing out to the table any item that could not be immediately plated. Drinks are self-served bottles on a side counter. They have tables and chairs that can seat 25 total. Call in orders are also picked up at the counter. The building did not have the option to put in a drive by window. A basic cash register was used with orders written on an order pad.

The Grand opening and the first 5 months of operation went smoothly. Business was brisk and Bob was meeting his bills but not taking home much pay. Some days he ran out of brisket before closing. If a large takeout order was placed it directly impacted the amount of product for regular daily sales.

One day a friend said to him – “Bob, how many of those brisket sandwiches do you need to sell each day to break even”? Bob didn’t have an answer. He was using his “gut instinct” to determine how much meat to smoke each day. Food inventory was purchased from the local grocery store, a food distributor, and a local meat processor (beef). He set menu prices based on what other restaurants in the area charged.

Bob was beginning to realize he needed to get a better handle on his operation. Specifically, storage of inventory, purchasing schedule, menu costs, and a tracking system so forecasting would be more accurate.

Then mid-March 2020 arrived and restrictions due to COVID-19 shut down his operation.

How could Bobs Bad Barbeque survive?

Based on the information presented above, answer the following questions using resources from this module but also other references that support your answers. Answers should be detailed.

  1. What top three mistakes did Bob make prior to COVID-19 that prevented him from more easily adapting to COVID-19 restrictions? 15
  2. What controls are missing from Bob’s operation currently? 6
  3. As BBBQ reopens following COVID-19 reopening rules, provide three key actions that Bob should take to reestablish his business and allow for growth so that he regains the ability to not just meet bills but also to pay himself (make a profit). This should be from an improved operations/control aspect. 15

Technology has made its mark on the health care field. With the rise of technology usage in the healthcare field, it is not a surprise to see new technology trends popping up in various healthcare settings. One of the main uses of technology that I use every day is telemedicine. Telemedicine is the use of different modalities such as email, video chat, telephone, and remote devices to provide health care information and education (Gajarawala & Pelkowski, 2021).  Many providers are now either solely virtual or slit their time between in-office and telemedicine visits. With the use of telemedicine patients’ data can be shared quickly and

A benefit of telemedicine is that many patients who do not have the means of getting to a doctor’s office can still receive medical services. The downside of telemedicine includes the many different regulations and guidelines for telemedicine practice. For example, who has ownership of the data? The legal protection of a patient’s protected health information is left up to the state and federal laws that do not adequately address the patient’s privacy needs (Nittari et al., 2020). There is a question of whether the health care provider or facility owns the patient’s health information or if the patient does. Another risk when it comes to the use of technology in this way is data accuracy. There is a question of misdiagnosis when it comes to telemedicine visits because the provider is not seeing the patient face to face therefore, they cannot physically examine the patient. According to Fouladirad and Teo, the lack of assessment skills such as palpitation and auscultations can result in misdiagnosis in many diseases such as appendicitis and congestive heart failure (2018). Losing the physical aspect of patient care can not only increase the rate of misdiagnosis but can be fatal if the patient is not treated for the appropriate conditions.

I believe that the use of video and remote devices will be the most promising technology to impact healthcare because healthcare facilities are always looking for new ways to provide more efficient patient care and cut costs. The less a provider must be at the facility, the less money it will cost that facility. Remote devices such as cardiac monitoring for the home and wireless diabetes devices can help increase better patient outcomes with chronic illnesses. The data from remote devices can be translated to the doctor’s office as it is occurring and can help mitigate adverse patient outcomes if the data is monitored closely. Being able to have real-time data can aid in clinical decision-making and faster response times to things like high glucose levels or atrial fibrillation.

Technology has come a long way throughout the last few decades. From paper charting to electronic health records (EHR) data has gone from looking for charts to having them at the tip of our fingers. At this time most healthcare agencies have gone to EHR, and many have some sort of system that allows patients to see their records online. At the facility that I currently work at they use a system called myhealthevet for veterans to look at their records, manage their appointments, and even send messages to their healthcare providers.

There are some challenges to the myhealthevet though. One challenge is that not all individuals have internet access. Another challenge is that not everyone is technology savvy. According to Faverio (2022), about 75% of individuals 65 years old and older use the internet. That leaves ¼ of the older population unable or having troubles with using the myhealthevet application. Many doctors do not feel like patients should have access to their records. According to D’Costa et. al (2020), doctors fear that having access to their records can make the patient unnecessarily worry or overwhelm them.

There are benefits to having the myheathevet too. Many times, patients do get overwhelmed when all the information is given to them in large amounts at once upon being discharged. However, by having access to their records, they can read the information and get a better understanding of it after they are discharged and able to think more clearly. With this app veterans can look at their records, set up appointments, and send messages to their providers. If the clinic is already closed, then they can still send a message and the provider will answer when they return to work or they can set up an appt. For individuals that work nights this is a wonderful feature because they are sleeping when others are awake making it hard for them to talk to the doctor’s office during regular service hours.

There is always risk involved when having information online. Security breaches happen all the time in the healthcare. According to Georgiev (2022), security breaches have cost over $6 trillion dollars and more than 2100 breaches have happened since 2009. This is a huge amount of money and information that has gotten out. Another risk for patient care would be that the veterans do not understand the information in their charts. This can cause them to get scared or nervous about something that they read. As far as risk for legislation risks malpractice is a risk associated with EHRs. According to D’Amore (n.d.), there were 2 malpractice cases involving EHRs from 2007-2010 but went to 66 cases from 2014-2016.

When looking at what healthcare trends are happening now, I would have to say the telehealth technology is a promising technology that will lead us into the future. Telehealth has become a major system of use since the coronavirus epidemic. This system can help individuals that are not able to get out of their homes by themselves or have a hard time getting out to be able to still see their doctor. With telehealth and all the electronics that patients can now have at home to send data to their doctor’s office and the doctor can see the vitals, weight, and even listen to the patient’s lungs and heart while the patient is in their own home. As more advancements happen in this area, I feel like more information will be able to be provided to the provider via electronics. This will also improve patient care by having individuals see their doctor on a regular basis even when they are not able to get out.

World War Ii

World War Ii


Should the deployment of weapons of mass destruction ever be considered in a time of conflict when there can be significant non-combatant (civilian) casualties? What considerations should be made when thinking about those decisions? Is there differentiation across the inhabitants of a nation, its military, and its government?

Approach this question in the abstract, and not as specifically being about World War II or any related prior knowledge. It may be useful to create that sort of distance as you consider the issues around such decisions.
