Put the following steps in the order of a routine patient care flow, from the beginning through to the end
Weegy: Chapter 1 MODELING PATIENT FLOWS THROUGH THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM Randolph Hall, David Belson, Pa van Murali and Maged Dessouky Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, 200 GER, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, [ California 90089-0193 Abstract: The system of health care can be evaluated from four perspectives: macro, regional, center, and department. In each case, reduction of patient delay depends on improving interfaces as patie nts are transferred from activity to activity or department to department. This chapter presents basic tools for resolving delays at interfaces, through mapping the processes by which patients are served, and by developing and implementing measures of system performance. These tools are demonstrated through a case study of the Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Hospital. Key words: Process charts, performance measurement, healthcare systems 1. INTRODUCTION Health care systems have been challenged in recent years to deliver high quality care with limited resources. In the United States, large segments of the population have inadequate health insurance coverage, forcing them to rely on an under funded public health system. At the national level, the National Institutes of Health has proj ected a steady increase in expenditures over the next 10 years, both in absolute terms and as a percentage of the gross-domestic-product (GDP). Total expenditures in year 2000 amounted to $1.3 trillion, or 13.2% of the GDP. While expenditures as a percentage of GDP held nearly constant between 1992 and 2000, they increased steadily from 5.2% to 13.1% in the 32-year period from 1960 to 1992. Due to aging of the population and increased costs of medical delivery, health-care costs are projected to increase to 15.9% of the GDP in 2010. ] (More)

What steps must you follow to avoid spreading germs when volunteering?
Weegy: In order to avoid (as much as possible) spreading those illnesses either from volunteer to child or child to volunteer, [ there are many simple precautions that volunteers can and should take to help maintain health among volunteers and within the o rphanages. Wash your hands frequently! You’ll constantly be changing diapers, wiping runny noses, touching dirty clothes, etc. with multiple children. This is an easy and common way to spread germs to everyone around you. Make sure to especially wash your hands before, in - between and after changing diapers, before feeding a child or eating something yourself, after cleaning up dirty clothes or toys, upon entering and leaving the orphanage, etc. Also, if you’re sick you rself, wash your hands often to avoid spreading bacteria when touching kids, toys, bottles, spoons, clothes, etc. If you’re sick and “itch” your nose with the back of your hand, or blow your nose using a Kleenex, or cough into your hand (never cough withou t covering your mouth and never cough toward the children or others), etc....you need to wash your hands before continuing doing what you were doing. Although hand sanitizers are a convenient, easy way to “clean” your hands, they are not nearly as effective as hot water and soap. Anytime it’s available, you should wash your hands with soap and hot water. We’ve found that this cuts down on volunteers getting sick or even getting parasites. Kissing babies/children : We all love to kiss and love the babies/chil dren! Again though, kissing them anywhere on their face is an easy way to spread germs from person to person due to the nose and mouth of each person being primary “passing” zones. So, when kissing the babies/children (as long as it’s not against orphanage rules), avoid kissing them directly on the mouth. Also, avoid kissing them if either you or they are sick, has a cold sore, etc. In general, try to kiss the babies/children on their head to avoid spreading germs............. ] (More)
