Four Functions Of Management Simply put management is being able to work with individuals and utilize resources given to obtain organization goals. Great managers are known by how effective and quickly they achieve these goals and also how they are able to make optimum use of the resources available to them of which can include time, materials, employees, money etc some managers focus on a particular aspect at the expense of others. Managers like that have poor management skills. There are four aspect of management that serves as a blueprint to achieving your set goals. They are planning, organizing, leading and controlling with planning the most important out of the lot There is a popular saying common with people from all works of life “he who fails to plan plans to fail” such lays down the importance of planning on management as a whole, it is the foundation on which everything else is built. The elook dictionary meaning states that it is the act of formulating a program for a definite course of action, without planning nothing can be achieved and this apply to our daily life as well. When looking at planning from a management perspective it can be said that most institutions within the sports and Leisure industry are doing well because of good planning and determination without determination nothing can be achieved and with planning both of these go a long way in achieving a directed goal or responsibility. The example that planning can be associated with is for example, if a new sports and leisure centre has opened the centre will obviously, recruit new staff it will also, make sure that the centre has a vision for a certain amount of years in other words, a vision is necessary to make sure that the centre is a huge success. This is where Planning plays a big part without it this certain place cannot achieve success they cannot achieve success of their…...

...recovery back in to the market. Living in California I have seen businesses fail and thrive all because of many different factors. One market that has caught my attention is the legalization of marijuana. In July of 2012 City of Los Angeles put a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries. Now business owners, patients, and tax dollars are facing uncertainties for the future of medical marijuana and marijuana in general. As a business student and business owner, I see an opportunity for California to take control of this controversial issue and finally deal with it. According to the LA Times article, the new ban imposed might not even be legal. This ban will put many businesses "Caregivers" out of business essentially cutting millions in revenue from taxes. Anita Gore, a California board spokesman, stated " tax authorities estimate that the state currently collects $58 million to $105 million in sales taxes on $700 to $1.3 billion in annual retail sales of medical marijuana." With our state already feeling the economical crunch, this measure will hurt us even more. Now again this is just revenue from Medical marijuana, if California legalizes marijuana in general these numbers would jump tremendously. There is already a market for medical marijuana, the City of Los Angeles and California needs to regulate the sales in order to receive the appropriate sales tax, just like alcohol and cigarettes. The State and even the Country can benefit tremendously from taxes alone.......

...CS#13 You work in a small family practice in rural Virginia, (much better than Texas!). A man in his early 50s comes in with a complaint of intermittent fever (102-103 F) and headache for the past two weeks. The physician examines him and takes a history. The only clinical finding is a wound about the size of a quarter on his right thumb. Axillary lymph nodes are swollen and tender. The man says he cut himself while skinning a rabbit three days ago. On the basis of these observations the physician prescribes streptomycin and asks the man to call if his symptoms don’t improve in three days. The physician asks you to draw blood and tells the patient he should return in four weeks for another blood sample. She says there is no need to culture the wound. 1. On the basis of the limited information above, the physician has obviously made a diagnosis. What is it? What does the causative organism look like when gram stained? 2. What is the most likely reservoir for the causative organism in this case? 3. Why draw blood twice? 4. Why not culture the wound to look for the bacterium? 5. What are four other common infections that humans acquire from animals? 1. Based on the limited information the physician’s diagnosis is Tularemia. Humans can acquire this illness through getting a bite from an infected (blood-sucking)tick, horsefly, or mosquito, inhaling infected dirt or plant material, eating infected meat which is very rare, but in this case with......

... Take for example California and its MediCal program; only 54% of doctors in California accept MediCal at all and half of that are accepting new patients. California and many other states pay doctors only 30 to 40 percent of what they would normally receive for a given service. This has forced fewer and fewer doctors to accept Medicaid. In his writings on Medicaid, Barr writes “making primary care more available to Medicaid recipients will help to decrease the use of emergency rooms and will lower the overall cost of care.” Making more primary care physicians available should be the focus of the already allocated funds instead of covering an expansion of those covered under Medicaid. The funds should instead be used to help subsidize medical school and residency for those who want to become primary care physicians rather than specialists. This will help increase the amount of students wanting to be primary care physicians and ease the burden of having more people insured overall. If the government helps pay for the education of these individuals the overall cost of their education will drop drastically. It can be assumed they would then be less likely to charge such high prices to be seen and as a result, overall healthcare costs would also begin to fall. The other government funded healthcare program (Medicare) has been doing this very thing since 1983—Medicare started using its Part A funds in 1983 to pay for graduate medical education (GME). This significantly......

...Medical Billing Process There are several different steps in the medical billing process that have to be followed. Each step is very unique and should be followed accordingly. The first step in the medical billing process is to pre-register all patients. This process requires you to schedule patients for new treatment. You are also required to update appointments for new and old patients. Upon preregistration it is also your job to collect both demographic and all of the patients insurance information. Patients have to provide their reason for the desired appointment so that proper treatment can be scheduled and provided. The next step in the medical billing process is to establish financial responsibility. During this process, determining if an insured patient has enough coverage for the type of visit is determined. Patients will be asked a series of questions about the type of insurance they have and the healthcare facility will of course run the insurance to see if it will pay for the visit and the service. If certain services are not covered by the patients insurance, then the patient will be informed and further actions will be taken. It is very important that the financial information is taken upfront. I say this because patients who do not have the appropriate health insurance will be treated and in the end cannot pay, causing the healthcare facility to lose money. The third step in the medical billing process is to check in patients. This step applies to patients...

...The word 'science' is derived from the Latin word 'scientia' which means knowledge. Therefore, science is about gaining knowledge either through observing, studying, experience, or practice. Entire knowledge acquired through science is about discovering truths, finding facts, uncovering phenomenon hidden by the nature. Observations and experimentation, in science, support in describing truth and realities through systematic processes and procedures. For me, science is an intellectual set of activities designed to uncover information about anything related to this world in which we live. The information gathered is organized through scientific methods to form eloquent patterns. In my opinion the primary objective of science is to gather information and to distinguish the order found between facts. What Science Means to Me as an Upcoming Scientist Science exposes several ideas along with significant themes so that I could test them independently and without any bias to arrive at solid conclusion. For this purpose exchange of data and materials is necessary. I am able to generate real and tangible facts supported by reliable evidence. Work of scientist is based on theoretical science. It means, in theoretical science, there is only a sign, just a hint on which discoveries could be made, facts could be found. While studying science I am always working for determining truth, based on my perceptions, judgment, observation, experience, and knowledge collected through several means...

...weather it is in the health care industry or any other office setting. Before a health care worker performs any medical procedure or care task with a patient, it's important they use verbal communication to inform the patient. This allows the patient to know what to expect. Verbal communication can also be used by the patient to inform the health care worker how they are feeling, what concerns they have and any other questions the patient may have. Non-verbal communication in the health care setting comes from eyes, hands and other parts of the body. Providing eye contact, not crossing the arms and leaning in when talking to a patient are non-verbal ways to communicate you care. Non-verbal communication is usually understood as the process of sending and receiving wordless message. Types of non-verbal communication are touching and eye contact as well as body language. Touches can be defined in communication as a handshake or a high five or a shoulder pat. Eye contact and facial expression helps indicate important social and emotional information. Body language is particularly important in group communication. It can convey attitudes, emotions, and feelings to someone who knows what to look for. Crossing your arms is a sign that your unconsciously shutting someone out. It’s similar to keeping someone at arm’s length and not allowing them to get closer to you. In the medical profession doctors can pick up on these signs. The care of patients now almost inevitably seems......

...Maria Hernandez Mod 170 Ms. Lily Anesthesiology An anesthesiologist is a medical doctor who cares for a patient before, during and immediately following a surgical or medical procedure by administering the appropriate anesthesia and monitoring the patient for reactions and complications, and to ensure comfort and manage pain. Some of the primary responsibilities of an anesthesiologist include examining the patient to determine the type of anesthetic needed, communicating all relevant information to the appropriate medical practitioners, and administering local, intravenous, or spinal anesthetic to the patient. Anesthesiologists meet with the patient prior to the surgical procedure to evaluate their condition and to review their medical history, they will explain the procedure to the patient so that they know what to expect. During surgery, an anesthesiologist carefully monitors the patient's vital signs—including heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, breathing, and kidney function—and adjusts anesthetics as needed. When surgery is finished, the recovery phase begins. The anesthesiologist administers medications to reverse the effects of the anesthetic, returning the patient to consciousness if a general anesthetic has been used. After surgery, patients are moved to a recovery room, where the anesthesiologist is still responsible for the patient's vital functions. In the recovery room, nurses and other specially trained staff closely monitor the patient under the......

...had a tracheotomy tube inserted during surgery, which made him unable to speak and required him to be suctioned every four hours. A day after arrival at the nursing home they issued a new medical order that the patient be suction once a shift and as needed, which was vastly different than the hospitals orders. During his stay he was visited by a close friend, Stephen Szczuvelek. The patient reached out to him and asked for his help by the use of a note stating that he had not been suctioned and needed to be suctioned immediately. His friend pushed the nurses’ call button and when he did not receive a response for over an hour went looking for a nurse. The nurse directed him to a conference room to talk to a social worker. Mr. Szczuvelek showed her the note from the patient and she assured him that the patient would be assisted. However, when he returned to the patient’s room he asked the nurse to suction the patient, but she replied that she already did. Mr. Burns shook his head no, so Mr. Szczuvelek confronted the nurse, who then replied that it was the doctor’s orders that the patient not be suctioned. After further prodding from Mr. Szczuvelek the nurse stated “I don’t have to take this crap” and left the room. The patient was unresponsive the next day and was rushed to Somerset Medical Center. Mr. Szczuvelek visited the patient in the emergency room and was informed by a nurse that the patient was not suctioned at the nursing home because there was a fire drill the......

...Immediately After Death Immediately after someone dies, several things need to happen. First, a medical professional will need to fill out the Pronouncement of Death form. Then arrangements will have to be made to move the body from its place of death. Finally, a death registration form must be completed and filed with the county in which the person died. And, if the person dies out of state (away from their home) or out of the country there are additional steps that will need to be taken. Pronouncement of death and transportation Registration of the death and death certificates Death out of state Death out of the country Transporting ashes Pronouncement of death and transportation Arrangements will need to be made to transport the body to a mortuary, crematory or the coroner’s office unless there is going to be a home burial service. However, before the body can be moved anywhere, a medical professional will need to complete a Pronouncement of Death form. The date and time on the form will become the official time of death. If it appears that the death was not from natural causes, the Coroner’s office will be contacted to see if an autopsy needs to be done. If the death occurs in a hospital: Someone at the hospital will complete the Prouncement of Death form.
