Review this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the Six Aims for Improvement presented in the landmark report “Crossing the Quality Chasm: The IOM Health Care Quality Initiative.”

Improving the quality of health care delivery and patient safety continues to be a political concern and has been at the heart of reform issues for many years. The American Nurses Association (ANA) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) have increased awareness of health care quality and safety issues, as well as advocated for health care reform. The documents featured at the ANA and IOM websites listed in this week’s Learning Resources focus on many of the current issues surrounding quality and safety in the health care industry.

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the Six Aims for Improvement presented in the landmark report “Crossing the Quality Chasm: The IOM Health Care Quality Initiative.”
  • Consider these six aims with regard to your current organization, or one with which you are familiar. In what areas have you seen improvement? What areas still present challenges? As a nurse leader, how can you contribute to improving the organization’s achievement of these aims?
  • Select one specific quality or safety issue that is presenting a challenge in the organization. Consider at least one quality improvement strategy that could be used to address the issue, as well as which of the six aims for improvement would then be addressed.
  • Reflect on your professional practice and your experiences with inter-professional collaboration to improve quality and safety. How has inter-professional collaboration contributed to your organization’s efforts to realize the IOM’s six aims for improving health care? Where has inter-professional collaboration been lacking?

Post a description of the quality or safety issue you selected and a brief summary of the impact that this issue has on health care delivery. Describe at least one quality improvement strategy used to address this issue. Then explain which of the six “aims for improvement” are addressed by the strategy. Finally, explain how inter-professional collaboration helps improve quality in this area.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses.

Determine the mole fraction xA and molar ratio XA of TCE in the wastewater

 A clarifier in a wastewater treatment plant contains wastewater with a bulk concentration of TCE of 0.010 kmol m-3.

The clarifier operates at 1.0 atm and a constant temperature of 20 oC. The overall diameter is 2.0 m and it is enclosed to contain the (sometimes smelly) gases which are emitted from the wastewater. Fresh air is blown into this enclosure to remove the gases emitted from the clarifier and is then sent to an incinerator. The TCE content in the gas leaving the clarifier is 4.0 mol %. The liquid film mass transfer coefficient for the clarifier is estimated as kx=0.200 kmol m-2s-1 and the gas film mass transfer coefficient is ky=0.0001 kmol m-2s-1. Assuming that this wastewater has the same molar density and TCE equilibrium relationship as in Question 1, determine the following:

(a) Determine the mole fraction xA and molar ratio XA of TCE in the wastewater

(b) What would be the mole fraction yA* of TCE in the air, if in equilibrium with 0.010 kmol m-3 TCE in the wastewater? (i.e. saturation mole fraction in the gas phase)

(c) What would be the mole fraction xA* of TCE in the wastewater, if in equilibrium with 4 mol% TCE in the air? (i.e. saturation mole fraction in a liquid phase)

(d) Plot Henry’s law relation y*=mx determined in Q1, and indicate xA, xA*, yA, yA* for the clarifier on that plot. What will be the direction of mass transfer of TCE? (i.e. from wastewater to air, or from air to wastewater?) 8 marks (e) Determine the overall mass transfer coefficients Kx and KL

(f) Determine the overall mass transfer coefficients Ky and KG (kmol m-2 s-1 atm-1). 6 marks (g) Determine the rate of mass transfer of TCE to/from the surface of the clarifier

(h) Determine xAi and yAi, the mole fraction of TCE in the liquid and vapor phase, respectively, at the water/air interface. Plot these values on a graph from Q2d.

(i) If the concentration of TCE in the wastewater entering the clarifier is 0.050 kmol m-3, what flowrate of wastewater (m3/h) is required to ensure that the concentration of TCE in wastewater leaving the clarifier is 0.01 kmol m-3? If the depth of liquid in the clarifier is 4 m, what average residence time is required for the wastewater?

Identify HIPAA transactions, code sets, and uniform identifiers.

Privacy and Security of Health Records

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) demands that all patients are able to retrieve their medical records, amend inaccuracies or exclusions, and be informed on how their protected health information (PHI) is shared with third parties. HIPAA provisions have led to a widespread overhauling in electronic medical records. HIPAA laws and regulations are divided into the following five rules.

1. HIPAA Privacy Rule

2. HIPAA Security Rule

3. Transactions and Code Sets Rule

4. The Unique Identifiers Rule

5. Enforcement Rule

After reading the required chapter “Privacy and Security of Health Records,” complete and submit the following in an APA-

formatted scholarly essay.

Begin your essay with an introduction explaining the purpose of the essay. Explain the five rules of HIPAA laws and regulations.

Identify HIPAA transactions, code sets, and uniform identifiers.

Describe HIPAA security requirements and safeguards.

Discuss the importance of contingency plans.

Describe the proper protocol for handling the following scenario under the HIPAA guidelines:

Scenario: A clinician enters orders and requests labs in an electronic patient record, and then leaves the computer without logging off properly. You are working in the area and notice that the computer is on, but you assume someone is coming back in a minute. Meanwhile, a patient wandering the hallway notices that the computer is on and reviews her friend’s patient record. Who is responsible for the patient’s lost privacy? What corrective measures should be taken to ensure the breach of PHI does not happen again?

Your essay must be at least two pages in length, and you must use at least two academic sources, one of which may be your textbook. At least one source must come from the CSU Online Library. Any information from these sources must be cited and referenced in APA style, and your paper must be formatted in accordance to APA guidelines.

Information about accessing the grading rubric for this assignment is provided below.

Write an essay (no less than four pages in length) that states and supports an original thesis statement in which you help challenge society’s limiting gender narratives.

Module 2 – Case

ARGUMENTATION

Case Assignment

Note: Module 2 SLP should be completed before the Module 2 Case.

No secondary sources are to be used in the process of writing this first paper; it is to be entirely written based on one’s point of view and supported with body points and details.

Reflecting on the four gender-related videos for Module 2 (see below), write a well-organized and well-supported essay in which you help challenge society’s limiting gender narratives.

A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be an explanation of gender roles, stereotypes, myths, and/or controls in society today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming what needs to be done to limit gender narratives in society today.

A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have a paragraph for each change? Will you divide the body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph.

The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where is our society headed? Is it too late for change?

Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 2 Case expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.

Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.

The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay.

This essay must include no less than SIX citations from the assigned background material for module 2. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author’s name. No other sources are to be used for this assignment.

Assignment Expectations

  • Write an essay (no less than four pages in length) that states and supports an original thesis statement in which you help challenge society’s limiting gender narratives.
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify credible and reliable sources for use in a well-supported and cohesive essay.
  • Demonstrate the ability to write a direct quote, paraphrased, or summary citation in APA Style
