Create a pamphlet using any type of publisher software you choose to educate clients on a current patient safety issue.

For example:

  • How aging adults can care for themselves at home

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 300–500 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

For the past 10 years, Helping Hands Hospital and the two nearby academic medical hospitals have been doing a great job of serving the population; however, the population is increasing in diversity and expanding into rural locations. These changes have sparked concern about the ability of individuals to access care. Access to care is a determinant of health, but there are numerous barriers to access. There is an upcoming orientation for new staff, and you have been asked to address the access to care concern. Please include the following:

For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.

Healthcare Industry – Regulatory Constraints

Healthcare Industry – Regulatory Constraints -1-2pgs – APA Format

Healing Hands Hospital is preparing for an accreditation visit from The Joint Commission. (TJC). TJC accredits health care organizations to improve the quality and safety of health care services. Their Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Hospitals  (CAMH) includes the following standards and regulations:

  • Patient-Focused Functions such as infection prevention and control; medication management; provision of care, treatment, and services; rights and responsibilities of the individual.
  • Organization Functions such as management of the environment of care, emergency management, human resources, management of information, life safety, medical staff, nursing, performance improvement, record of care, treatment, services, and leadership.

For this assignment, you will complete the following:

  • From the list of standards mentioned above, choose 1 Patient-Focused Function and Organization Function and discuss why each of those functions are important to patient safety.
  • Discuss why government regulations and private regulations such as those of The Joint Commission are necessary in health care.

This should be in a table form right?

The purpose of this assignment is to become familiar with various data sources used by health care organizations to obtain quality data. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) creates an annual report, the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, which assesses the performance of the U.S. health care system. This report identifies strengths and weaknesses of the health care system in addition to disparities in access to health care and quality of health care. The report is based on more than 250 measures of quality and disparities, and it covers a broad range of health care services and settings.


Access the most current report using the “National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports” AHRQ website, provided in the topic Resources. Select five data sources from this report and fill in the required components on the “Quality Data Sources Organizer.”
