Description

You can pick any one of the three topics. 1. The prevention of medication errors is a key focus for health care organizations of late. Errors that occur have the potential to not only affect patient care outcomes, but can also have a high impact to the financial operations of the organization if intervention must occur or the error results in an extended hospital stay. Develop a plan to implement an audit tool to monitor medication administration compliance in a particular patient population in the facility. 2. The prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a key focus for health care organizations of late. DVTs that occur have the potential to not only affect patient care outcomes, but can also have a high impact to the financial operations of the organization. Develop a plan to implement DVT prevention compliance in your facility. 3. You have been appointed to chair a hospital-wide committee to develop and implement a plan to retain new nursing staff. Your Chief Nursing Officer has provided you a summary report indicating a steady increase in new nurses resigning over the last six months. You will need to identify the various resources available for retaining staff, establish a clear bench mark and design a specific plan of action for reversing this trend. Your focus is to implement a plan to retain newly hired nurses for a minimum of 3 years.
