Discussion Help on Classism

 

Income and wages are measurable indicators of how prosperity is distributed amongst social class. Wealth, often determined by an individual’s net worth (assets minus liabilities), is another indicator that is used to determine class. Wealth for working class families is measured by their cars, savings, and home. As people improve their social and economic standing, wealth may include things like stocks and bonds, commercial real estate, and expensive jewelry.

Wealth is an important indicator because it spans past, present, and future generations. For example, compare the children of parents who can save money and leave an inheritance with children of parents who economically struggle and have few assets to pass on to the next generation. Historically, the creation and accumulation of wealth provides evidence of the legacy of racism, sexism, and discrimination and their role in determining class. Black/African Americans, women, and Hispanic/Latinos have historically been denied the means to obtain assets and grow wealth. Consider the impact of chronic marginalization on the Black/African American community’s ability to build wealth. While the income gaps between various ethnic groups may be decreasing, the gap between assets remains wide. Data from the Pew Research center show that the median wealth of Caucasian households is 20 times that of Black/African American households and 18 times that of Hispanic/Latinos households in the U.S. (Pew Research Center, 2011).

Class extends beyond wealth and other financial indicators. Class also includes details like the amount of free time you enjoy (because you are not working three jobs to make ends meet) or feeling like there is a “right” way to speak and act in order to be heard.

HA415 Unit 7 Discussion Post 2 and 3

On two different paragraph Give your personal opinion to Casie Woodruff and  Havilah Dieterle

In the united states, we spend more money per capita on healthcare than any other industrialized nation. yet, many of our public health outcomes measure significantly worse than these other countries. Why? Does it matter? would you be better served to live and receiving your healthcare services in another country?

The United States spends more money per capita on healthcare than any other industrialized nation, more than $3.2 trillion a year on healthcare, with estimates to spend $49 trillion over the next decade.” (U.S. Senate Sanders.) The public health outcomes are significantly worse than other 32 industrialized nations, this is because they have successfully implemented universal healthcare models that provide accessible government ran public health programs. 

Universal healthcare models make a huge impact on the success of other countries and their healthcare. The United States does little to control the prices of healthcare costs in relation to services and prescription drug prices, while other countries “keep hospitals on a fixed budget to control costs to reimburse doctors at a fee-for-service rate.” (The Balance) In addition, in a model with Government taking responsibility for universal healthcare, the cost of prescription drugs are kept down because their government officials argue for lower prices. If the United States were to implement a universal healthcare model it would aid in decreasing the costs of prescription drugs by up to $113 billion per year. (U.S. Senate Sanders.) 

Universal healthcare makes a huge difference in accessibility to care and the price of care, in some cases citizens would be better served to live in a country that offers universal healthcare. Those that are uninsured or underinsured within the United States could greatly benefit from the healthcare that they could receive in other countries.

In the US we spend more money per capita on healthcare than any other industrialized nation. Yet, many of our public health outcomes measure significantly worse than these other countries. Why? Does it matter? Would you be better served living and receiving your healthcare services in another country?

We definitely need to make improvements with our healthcare system. Even though we seem to spend the most on healthcare costs, we definitely don’t have the same outcomes as other countries do. We have the largest per capita healthcare expenditures according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (US $9,024, Germany $5,119, Italy $3,620). The average is only around $3,207. We are way off! The US “spent almost three times on healthcare as the average of other countries”. According to the experts, there are two underlying reasons why the United States spends so much on healthcare: it uses expensive medical technology and prices for healthcare services, and goods are higher than other countries (Etehad & Kim, 2017). And it’s sad to say that we as Americans have shorter life spans than those of 30 other countries (United States, 79.3 years). This is one way that researchers look at how effective our healthcare system really is. The US as a whole has a higher rate of people who are uninsured when it comes to healthcare access. Although no two countries have the exact same healthcare system, many nations on the list—such as Sweden, Japan, and the Netherlands—provide their residents with a universal healthcare insurance plan (Etehad & Kim, 2017). This equals 100% from other countries that actually have healthcare coverage. A lot of governments play a role in creating the funds are this exchange of free healthcare to happen. Unfortunately, “the United States is the only wealthy country without universal coverage”. Back in 2013, there were a large number of individuals who died from preventable diseases.

With healthcare becoming so expensive, many Americans are flying across the world just for healthcare and procedures. This is known as “medical tourism”. This has expanded across the world over the last several years and is estimated to grow “25% over the next decade”. Individuals are traveling thousands of miles just to receive treatment that may not be approved in the US and they may have the opportunity to receive this care quicker if they travel to another country. This has become so popular that employers are offering these medical tourism benefits to their employees. Hospitals overseas can often charge lower prices because their doctors are paid less, and they may not have to carry the same medical malpractice insurance as American doctors (Braverman, 2016). You have to be careful with language barriers, counterfeit medications, and blood that may not have been screened properly. Also, people who are having surgery have to be cautious and think about their recovery. Are you going to be able to fly home safely? What if something happens and you need to file a malpractice suit against one of the providers? Unfortunately, you may not have protection like we do in the United States with HIPAA. If your current insurance won’t cover your trip for treatment, you may have to purchase a separate insurance called “medical complications insurance”. Do your research! You want to make sure you look into the hospitals and make sure they are use to taking care of international patients. It depends on what type of procedure you are having, but you could be in that country for several weeks. The CDC recommends that you not fly for at least 10 days after surgery due to the increased risk of blood clots (Braverman, 2016). From doing research for this discussion, I would personally look at my options here in the United States. You can most likely find affordable treatment instead of planning to go to another country.

Healthcare Intake Packet

   Evaluate public health policies and practices as they      relate to legal and ethical implications for individuals and populations. Analyze health needs, disparities, and healthcare      delivery systems within the context of cultural, social, legal, political,      and economic forces. Examine the structure of the U.S. legal system and      government as it relates to ethics, law, and core principles of public      health. Assess current legal and ethical principles and the      application of such principles in healthcare practice. Analyze ethical and legal dilemmas that healthcare      workers may encounter in the medical field. Examine legal requirements for managing patient      information, health information documentation, the release of information,      and electronic health records.

You are now ready to take the basic components you have created so far and, using those as a foundation, create the final Intake Packet the hospital will use during admissions. The Intake Packet will be comprised of the following elements: A New Patient Letter to accompany the Intake Packet The letter should be in business letter format The letter should address the following points for the       patient: An explanation of the importance of ethics Why each part of the packet is included How the packet is to be used The letter should also include a HIPAA/Confidentiality statement The letter should also include a Privacy Pledge The Code of Ethics Based on your PowerPoint Presentation, create a one-page bulleted Code of Ethics A sample Living Will Make any necessary changes to your Living Will template and include it as part of the Intake Packet Create a new form for the patient to sign, acknowledging receipt of the above documents

In addition, you will craft an email to the CEO and the Board of Directors, explaining the purpose of the Intake Packet and all its components. Your email should use proper email formatting (including subject line description) and contain language appropriate to the receiver. 

Finally, develop a PowerPoint presentation for placement on the Facility website.) Your audience includes past, current, and future patients. In the PowerPoint presentation, you will address the following: The Ethics and Values of the organization and an overview of the Code of Ethics The Purpose of the Intake Packet Explanation of the Privacy Policy Explanation of HIPAA, and its goals and purpose Description and encouragement to sign the form acknowledging receipt

a. The PowerPoint should be between 10 and 15 slides.

Electronic Medical Record Brochure

  

Examine legal requirements for managing patient information, health information documentation, the release of information, and electronic health records.

You will create an informational brochure educating patients about the contents of the medical record and the proper release of information. In a double-sided brochure you need to address the following topics:

1. The Electronic Medical Record: Definition and contents of the EMR. You will want to include some of the Joint Commission’s requirements pertaining to what should be included in the medical record and when entries should be completed.

2. HIPAA/Confidentiality: Provide an overview of HIPAA and the level of confidentiality that the patient can expect from Three Mountains Regional Hospital.

3. Release of Information: Explain the process for a patient to obtain either copies or sections of their medical records. Discuss that information cannot be shared without their express permission.

4. Privacy Pledge: Craft a privacy pledge statement informing the patient that they can trust that their information will remain private.

The brochure that you will create should be a tri-fold design with two pages (the first for the outside and the second for the inside). Draw attention to your brochure by using well-placed art, an easy to read design, and use of color.

APA formatting, and proper grammar, punctuation, and form required

HA415 Unit 7 discussion

 Depending on one’s personal experience in obtaining health care, or one’s view of the role of physicians in society, of law as a tool for social change, of the scope of medical ethics, or of the United States’ place in the broader global community, the no-duty principle might seem appropriate, irresponsible, or downright wrong. Imagine you are traveling in a country where socialized medicine is the legal norm, and your discussion with a citizen of that country turns to the topic of your countries’ respective health systems. When asked, how will you account for the fact that health care is far from being a fundamental right rooted in American law? 

HA499 Unit 7 Assignment

Review this week's Learning Resources, paying particular attention to the AMA article “Informed Consent

prepare for this Discussion: Review this week’s Learning Resources, paying particular attention to the AMA article “Informed Consent” and Chapter 7 in the Judson and Harrison textbook. Download the Week 3 Discussion Scenarios (located in the Learning Resources). Choose two scenarios for your Discussion

Post a comprehensive response to the following: For each scenario, decide if informed consent was obtained properly. If it was, then explain why you think it was. Be specific. If it was not, then explain where in the informed consent process a procedure was not followed. Be specific. For each scenario, explain how you would improve the informed consent process to make sure consent to treat a patient is obtained correctly. Be specific and provide examples. Imagine yourself as a health provider (like the providers in the scenarios). What would you do to make sure that informed consent to treat is always done correctly?

Scenario 1:

John is scheduled for an outpatient hip replacement. He meets with the surgeon one week prior to the surgery. The surgeon explains the procedure and then reviews the risks and benefits with John. On the day of the surgery, while John is being prepped for the procedure, a nurse walks in to obtain his consent to treat. To verify, the nurse asks John if the doctor explained the procedure, including the risks and benefits? John says “no.”  

Scenario 3:

Juan is scheduled for a laparoscopic Lap-Band placement surgery. He meets with the surgeon one week prior to the surgery. The surgeon explains the surgical procedure and how the Lap-Band is used. She asks Juan if he has any questions? Juan says “no.” On the day of the surgery, while Juan is being prepped, a nurse walks in to obtain his consent to treat. To verify, the nurse asks Juan if the doctor explained the procedure, including the risks and benefits. Juan looks surprised and replies, “what risks?”

Discussion; Peer-Reviewed Article

Peer-reviewed journals are scholarly journals that publish original research or writing. According to a Cornell University website, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.”The main purpose of a scholarly journal is to report on original research or experimentation in order to make such information available to the rest of the scholarly world.” Thus for this and all future assignments, be sure that the article you select is an actual research article rather than simply a literature review or general interest paper.

Go to the Hunt Library, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and use EAGLEsearch to find an article on a topic of interest that falls within the subject area(s) of your degree program. Be sure to select the “Scholarly & Peer-Review” filter option on the left of the screen (following the initial display of results). Using the research cycle in Chapter 1 of the text, describe how the selected article outlines/describes each part of the cycle, focusing on the research methodology. If it is lacking in a part of the cycle, tell what is missing and what could be done to fill the gap. Your post should be approximately 500 words.
