ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS :Post Response paper

With the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report revealing that there was a minimum of 44,000 deaths in1999 that could have been prevented, at minimum cost of $17 billion, many recommendations were made to change how we approach health care (Plawecki & Amrhein, 2009). One recommendation was to increase the number of nurses that have their BSN. The fact that we are all in this class with plans to continue our educations beyond the BSN, supports that this recommendation is being taken seriously.

Another of the recommendations made in the future of nursing report, is regarding residency programs for nurses (Cipriano, 2011). At our hospital we have the Versant program which is an eighteen week program incorporating classroom learning, computer learning, and unit orientation, followed by a year of mentoring. This has greatly increased the retention rate for nurses. Decreasing turnover allows more focus on continued learning and less on training new staff.

Mary Wakefield talks about the new rules for healthcare redesign and the two most important ones are safety is the responsibility of the entire facility or system and the need for transparency (Wakefield, 2008). No longer is there a stigma for employees to speak up regarding errors made or witnessed. The atmosphere in my hospital when we have errors, is that we address why a process failed and not place blame on individuals. Employees involved in an error are invited to the multidisciplinary reviews to evaluate all processes and to develop and implement change to avoid the error being repeated. The employees are now more comfortable coming forward because there is an atmosphere of safety first.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
