Background: Clinical audit is one approach to improve the quality of patient care, completion of request form inclusive.

Methodology: A review of all consecutive request form received at the
X-ray unit of the SLH over a period of six weeks9(From 16 March to 30 May 2013) to assess the completeness of filling of the forms, details of biodata/clinical information, previous exposure and information about the requesting officer.
Result: Two hundred and two request forms were analysed. All the request had names on it however 89.1% had complete and adequate information while 10.9% have incomplete and inadequate information on names, one hundred and ninety-six (97%) had dates while, 6(3%) did not have information regarding date of request, space for the addresses were filled in 80 (39.6%) out of which only 24 (11.9%) had adequate and complete information. Clinical information were adequate and complete in 34.4%, only 6(8.3%) of those with previous x-rays submitted their previous film with the new request.

... Justification Report Name Course Tutor Date Justification report Assignment 2.1- Justification Report(Part 1) Problem statement The main problem that employees face in Carnival Cruise Line Company is a hostile environment. This hostile environment in Carnival Cruise Line Company is also a form of harassment. A good number of other employees in Carnival Cruise Line Company normally think that issues that bring about the hostile environment in the workplace include; bosses who are irresponsible, rude coworkers, privileges, benefits, the lack of perks, work environment that is unpleasant and even recognition. In most cases, to consider the workplace hostile, some lawful standards and policies are supposed to be met. The creation of this hostility in the work environment is mostly done by the boss or a colleague whose behavior, actions, and communications makes it impossible to perform the responsibilities of the workplace or the organization. With the traits portrayed by the coworkers and the employers, it can be concluded that he traits are responsible for changing the terms and conditions or the anticipations of the conducive and comfortable work environment for all employees. Moreover, in order for a work environment to be considered hostile, the traits and actions should show unfairness. An example is where an employee posts nude images or says sexual and explicit jokes is termed as guilty of harassing a fellow employee sexually (Mann & Goodman......

...INTRODUCTION The budget is the financial expression of the project and should accurately reflect the costs of the proposed research/education/service program. The budget justification provides the sponsor agency and reviewers of the application with information such as why costs are programmatically necessary and how they are calculatced. Reviewers will analyze the financial data to determine if the proposed costs are allocable to the program, allowable under federal cost principles or non-federal sponsor guidelines (whichever is applicable), reasonable and treated consistently by the institution and similar organizations. When the University receives an award, the approved budget items become part of the agreement between the University and the sponsor. Only those costs that are included in the budget or re-budgeted costs allowed by the sponsor should be directly charged to the award. If the cost requires prior institutional and/or sponsor approval after the award is made, the approval must be secured before the cost is incurred. Therefore, it is important to develop a budget that will enable the PI to fulfill all of the programmatic requirements of the project. A budget and budget justification must be provided for: • Proposed direct costs • Proposed cost share • Estimated program income, including projected revenue and expenditures • Facilities and Administration (F&A or Indirect Costs) FUNDING SOURCES One of the first steps in developing a budget......

...consist of these seven steps for each interview: 1. Determine the people to interview. 2. Establish objectives for the interview. 3. Develop interview questions. 4. Prepare for the interview. 5. Conduct the interview. 6. Document the interview. 7. Evaluate the interview. C. Document Review Although interviews are an extremely important method of obtaining information, I would very much like to investigate the current system documentation. Document review can present a better understanding of how the current system is supposed to work. Due to the fact that most of the HR processes of Riordan are done manually, it is expected that these documentations may not be up to date. Forms can change or be discontinued, and documented procedures often are modified or eliminated. Copies of actual forms and operating documents currently in use would be obtained, in addition to document samples during interviews with the people who perform these procedures. The documentation might not be up-to-date, so I would use follow-up interviews to check with users to confirm that I am receiving accurate and complete information. D. Observation The observation of current operating procedures is another fact-finding technique. Seeing the system in action gives additional perspective and a better understanding of system procedures. Personal observation also enables the verification of statements made in interviews and determine whether procedures really operate as they are described. E.......

Justification by Faith

...Justification by Faith By Russell D. Stalvey Introduction A statement that is ancient but also timeless and just as relevant for today’s believers is that we are justified by faith. The Apostle Paul gave insight to this statement very distinctly and in great aspect but to completely understand the statement, we first must possess a foundational comprehension of what it means to be justified. In understanding justification we will see that it is inseparably interrelated to faith, but not just any faith. We will also see that the undertaking of justification by faith has overwhelming effects on the justified. Definition Justification is seen as an act of God’s wonderful grace, free grace that is available to all sinners. God exonerations all of the sins, receives the sinners, not because of anything fashioned in the sinner or performed by the sinner, but only for the unflawed submission and complete satisfaction of the Lord, through God’s impartation and received by faith alone. The Westminster Larger Catechism answers the definition of justification in this manner: “Justification is an ‘act’. It is a courtroom verdict .We are the defendants and charges have been filed against us. The judge passes his verdict. Logically there are only two verdicts available to the judge. One of these verdicts is ‘condemned’, and the other is ‘justified’. If we are ‘condemned’, then the judge has pronounced us ‘guilty’. If we are ‘justified’, then the judge has pronounced......

...ENG 315 Professional Communications February 13, 2011 Justification Report Plan I will be writing a justification report in order to justify a whole and healthy foods initiative for Pueblo School District in Tucson, Arizona. The audience would consist of the school board for this school. They decide upon the administrative decisions such as meal plan changes and the cost of meals. The school district board is comprised of ten individuals, four men and six women. Their backgrounds include varying professions. The topic of the report is implementing more organic, low fat, and vegetarian friendly options in kindergarten through eighth grade class cafeterias. This initiative would require the help of a dietician consultant to assist with menu planning and nutritional guidelines for the specific age groups. The purpose of this report is to convince the board members that the whole and healthy foods initiative will keep young people healthier, therefore jump starting their brains and overall dispositions to succeed in school and in the future. The initiative would include food education for young people to help them learn healthy menu planning and the new food pyramid organization. Eating right and learning to eat right will affect children’s health and economic stature in the future. I will research in psychology and medical journals to find articles on how food affects young bodies and minds. The chef Jamie Oliver has created initiatives to offer healthier foods in......
