HCS 451 Week 5 Discussion Questions

HCS 451 Week 5 Discussion Questions

DQ 1: Review the scenario below and answer the questions that follow:

ABC Hospital is a small, privately owned community hospital. It has been struggling to survive financially, as reimbursement rates have declined and consumers are being drawn to the larger state-of-the-art hospital facilities in urban areas that are perceived to have better quality. ABC Hospital was built in 1960 and has been operating in the same manner for many decades. The hospital meets legal and regulatory requirements but has not kept pace with some of the newer technologies and patient conveniences becoming more prevalent in the health care industry.

1. What strategies can the organization take to survive, improve its performance, and compete with other hospitals over the next 5 years?

2. What are some advantages or disadvantages of these strategies? Provide specific examples to support your answers.

DQ 2: Review the scenario below and answer the questions that follow:

XYZ Health Department provides services to county residents. Budget cuts have forced the department to cut back on some services and lay off several staff, increasing the workload of other staff. Morale among staff has declined, and county residents have complained that they are not treated with dignity and respect and are not receiving high quality care and service.

1. What strategies can XYZ Health Department implement to provide high quality care and services to the county residents and to help increase customer satisfaction?

2. How can these strategies help minimize risk and improve quality? Provide specific examples to support your answers.

Nothing should be more important than providing safe, high quality care to all of the patients and delivering that care in an understanding, compassionate manner. It should be our mission and our passion to provide high quality care and high quality caring.




ORDER NOW FOR ORIGINAL, PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPERS




You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.


Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.


Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.


The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
