Human Resource Management Roles

...more than doubled the time spent in educating with the changing of the health care system and new laws. Their pay has not quite doubled for the amount of responsibilities they have. Here is a pay scale for 2012 for Human resource employees. Basic Salary Chart The typical salary for a human resources (HR) Manager in the United States is $51,027 - $76,740. It is critical to have proper management of human resource to deliver high quality of health care. When new policies and laws are in place there needs to be a focus on educating the company as a whole. Human resources management has a great deal of responsibilities to ensure employers and employees are supported in a safe and protected environment.

Vap Prevention

...Ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) is a pneumonia occurring approximately 48 hours after a patient is intubated and placed on a mechanical ventilator. VAP is of major concern as it is directly caused by the use of a medical device. This pneumonia occurs when secretions from the oropharyngeal area move into the lungs (VAP, 2006). VAP accounts for 6 of every 10 deaths attributed to healthcare-associated infections (Doyle, Fletcher, Carter, Blunt, & Young, 2011). VAP extends the time a patient is in the intensive care unit by approximately a week and increases cost by $10000 per episode (Doyle et al., 2011). BioMed Central, a peer research group, performed a quantitative research study on VAP and the PneuX System addresses issues surrounding the prevention of VAP. This device incorporates and proprietary endotracheal tube and tracheal cuff seal monitor which is not used with traditional endotracheal intubation. When selecting the sample study, each patient was over the age of 18 years and intubation was required within their plan of care. PneuX System was implemented only of patients expected to be intubated over 24 hours (Doyle et al., 2011). For all patients included in the study, the PneuX System was used and intubation time was at least 48 hours. All patients intubated using the PneuX System were included in study results. First to review VAP and the role the PneuX system plays in VAP prevention. Often when placed on a ventilator a patient is sedated.......

Cms and the Controversial Preventative Maintenance Mandate

...facilities to follow their orders. In the case of the clinical engineering (CE) departments for healthcare facilities, one major mandate was brought to their attention which involved the PM process for medical equipment. They essentially wanted to have one set way of performing PM, so that everyone could be covered to the fullest extent. From my experience in a biomed shop, many of the preventative maintenance (PM) procedures on devices were sometimes unnecessary and carried out in a manner that wasn’t in line with the manufactures directions. This different way of completing the PM was both good and bad and ill explain that in further detail later in the report. Some devices didn’t need the rigorous manufactured PM schedule because some devices either worked or didn’t work. Some biomed shops agreed with their own PM schedules and other followed the manufactures PM schedule very thoroughly. CMS noticed this trend and decided to do something about it. Because CMS noticed that some of the standard manufacturing PM schedules were not being followed, they issued a directive in December 2012 saying that a biomed shop is to follow the manufactures’ suggested preventative maintenance schedules. (Norville, 2012) That schedule from a manufacturer must be maintained “until a sufficient amount of maintenance history has been acquired to safely adjust the maintenance frequency below that recommended”. (Norville, 2012) Behind the update, CMS stated that, “Equipment that is......

...Medical Imaging Problem Set Intro to Biomed Anna Ylitalo Due: Nov 28, 2011 1. Digital cameras can be used as a medical imaging tool in dermatology. Often times it is not easy for the patient to travel to the dermatologist for checkups, so a simple picture of the affected skin can be sent to the dermatologist for review of progress. 2. The right temporal side of the head is approximately (1.5 mm/µs)(45µs)=67.5 mm from the left temporal side of the brain. If a space-occupying lesion is on the left side of the brain, there will be a jump in amplitude where the lesion occurs, something like: 3. Ultrasonic B-scans are used to create 2-D cross sectional images of the structure of interest. A solid ball would create merely a filled in circle; a tennis ball filled with air would create an image of a outer rim with empty space inside, as shown below: 4. The three controls that a technician uses on an x-ray machine are the voltage adjustment, mA control and the exposure timer. The voltage adjustment is used to control the penetrating power of the beam. A greater penetrating power will decrease the contrast of the image. The mA control is used to determine the current which flows through the filament in the cathode. This changes the number of photons produced, which affects the blackness of the image. Finally, the exposure timer is combined with the mA control to manipulate the darkness of the image. 5. Grids improve the image sharpness when a relatively thick body......

...Human Subjects Research (HSR) Series CITI Program’s HSR series consists of modules from two basic tracks, Biomedical (Biomed) and Social-Behavioral-Educational (SBE), and a set of Additional Modules of Interest. Organizations may group these modules to form a basic Biomed or SBE course, or a course that combines the two tracks. The Additional Modules of Interest should be used in any course variation, if relevant. The basic Biomed modules have three corresponding sets of refresher modules and the basic SBE modules have two corresponding sets of refresher modules. These refresher modules are intended to provide learners with a review of what was covered in the basic level modules. It is generally recommended that organizations select refresher module requirements that reflect their selections for the basic course(s). Refresher courses should be taken in a cycle at an interval specified by your organization (for example, Refresher Stage 1: 3 years after completion of basic course; Refresher Stage 2: 6 years after completion of basic course). Three additional standalone courses are available: Institutional/Signatory Official: Human Subject Research, and IRB Chair. The Institutional/Signatory Official: Human Subject Research course provides a general introduction to the roles and responsibilities of the institutional official at an organization holding a Federalwide Assurance (FWA). The IRB Administration course offers members of an Institutional Review Board’s ......

Psych 450

...Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a number of symptoms including but not limited to: psychotic episodes, impaired social cognitive ability and varied levels of depression and withdrawal, can greatly impair. Therefore, it not only can cause a person to limit interaction with family and friends, but also significantly impacts social interaction with his or her peers, fellow workers, and/or people within general society. It is therefore understandable that people who experience schizophrenia often lack adaptation skills, suffer from cognitive deficits and also encounter the criminal justice system more frequently (BioMed central, 2010). However, several studies and hypotheses indicate a relationship between human development, family environment and relationships and the propensity for psychotic episodes and/or deficient levels of self-care and functionality within the social sphere of participation. Accordingly, this paper will examine schizophrenia, its definition and parameters, how child development influences its outcomes and how deficient socialization and cognitive abilities play key roles regarding outcomes. According to the DSM-IV-TR criteria; a schizophrenia diagnosis requires the patient to have at least two of the following symptoms for at least a one month period these symptoms include, “Delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, catatonia or disorganized behavior and/or other negative symptoms including the blunting of affect,” (Kalapatupa......

...members of the Minnesota advisory panels that help choose the drugs which patient’s will be covered through Medicaid benefits. The pharmaceutical companies mentioned in this article were, Eli Lilly who manufactures Zyprexa and Astra Zeneca who makes Seroquel (DeAngelis, 2004). It poses the question, is our children being sold out due to greed from a selected number of health professionals sitting on high- powered State Boards making decisions that could affect American families for generations to come. In a few years are we looking at the “third generation” of psychotropic users? A new study was just published in BioMed open access journal Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health claiming children in the United States are “approximately three times more likely to be prescribed psychotropic’s than the children in Europe” (BioMed Central; American kids most medicated 2008). Julie Zito led the team of researchers and came to the conclusion, antidepressants and stimulants usage was three or more times greater in the United States than in the Netherlands and Germany. She attributes the increased use of psychotropics to the differences in diagnostic classification systems and cultural beliefs. Zito cited the US trend of increasing bipolar diagnosis in children and adolescents which does not reflect the European practice. Zito concluded by saying, “The increased use of medication in the US also reflects the individualist and activist......
