the compensation of the chief executive of the health care organization

the compensation of the chief executive of the health care organization

Hospital executives often come under scrutiny for the salaries and benefits they receive. According to a recent IRS survey related to chief executive officer salaries, of more than 500 hospitals, the national average income was $490,000. In addition, the salaries of hospital and other health industry executives have come under scrutiny in Congress. For-profit hospitals, which make up about 30% of hospitals, do not have to publicly disclose how much the executives at each facility earn, but nonprofit hospitals must provide that information on the IRS form 990, which are public documents.

By law, hospitals are required to show that such compensation is “reasonable” when compared to pay at other similar institutions. If you were a board member of a healthcare organization, what other determinants besides the salary of other chief executives would you want information on before you determined the compensation of the chief executive of the health care organization whose board you are on? In addition, how do the responsibilities of chief executives compare to the responsibilities of other healthcare employees? Do these responsibilities warrant a substantially higher salary? Defend your answer.

Alterations in Cellular Processes

Discussion: Alterations in Cellular Processes

At its core, pathology is the study of disease. Diseases occur for many reasons. But some, such as cystic fibrosis and Parkinson’s Disease. Occur because of alterations that prevent cells from functioning normally.

Understanding of signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critical step in diagnosis. And treatment of many diseases. For the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). This understanding can also help educate patients and guide them through their treatment plans.

For this Discussion,

you examine a case study and explain the disease that is suggested. You examine the symptoms reported. And explain the cells that are involved and potential alterations and impacts.

Scenario 1: A 16-year-old boy comes to clinic with chief complaint of sore throat for 3 days. Denies fever or chills. PMH negative for recurrent colds, influenza, ear infections or pneumonias. NKDA or food allergies. Physical reveals temp of 99.6 F, pulse 78 and regular with respirations of 18. HEENT normal with exception of reddened posterior pharynx with white exudate on tonsils that are enlarged to 3+. Positive anterior. And posterior cervical adenopathy. Rapid strep performed in office was positive. His HCP wrote a prescription for amoxicillin 500 mg po q 12 hours x 10 days disp #20. He took the first capsule when he got home and immediately complained of swelling of his tongue and lips. Difficulty breathing with audible wheezing. 911 was called and he was taken to the hospital. Where he received emergency treatment for his allergic reaction.

Post an explanation of the disease highlighted in the scenario you were provided. Include the following in your explanation:

  • The      role genetics plays in the disease.
  • Why      the patient is presenting with the specific symptoms described.
  • The      physiologic response to the stimulus presented in the scenario and why you      think this response occurred.
  • The      cells that are involved in this process.
  • How      another characteristic (e.g., gender, genetics) would change your      response.

Review of Current Healthcare Issues


Discussion week 1

Discussion: Review of Current Healthcare Issues

If you were to ask 10 people what they believe to be the most significant issue facing healthcare today. You might get 10 different answers. Escalating costs? Regulation? Technology disruption?

These and many other topics are worthy of discussion. Not surprisingly, much has been said in the research, within the profession. And in the news about these topics. Whether they are issues of finance, quality, workload, or outcomes, there is no shortage of changes to be addressed.

In this Discussion, you examine a national healthcare issue. And consider how that issue may impact your work setting. You also analyze how your organization has responded to this issue.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and select one current      national healthcare issue/stressor to focus on.
  • Reflect on the current national healthcare      issue/stressor you selected and think about how this issue/stressor may be      addressed in your work setting.

Post a description of the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected for analysis, and explain how the healthcare issue/stressor may impact your work setting. Then, describe how your health system work setting has responded to the healthcare issue/stressor, including a description of what changes may have been implemented. Be specific and provide examples.

Eco Oro Minerals Corp. v. The Republic of Colombia


I) Introduction:

1. Dear Madam Presiding Arbitrator, dear Members of the Arbitral Tribunal, my name is XX and today I joined by my co-counsels XX here on behalf of Respondent, the Republic of Colombia in these ICSID proceedings Claimant, Eco Oro Minerals Corp.

2. Today, we will structure our pleadings as …

1. Summary of Dispute:

3. Let me begin by providing an overview of the facts that have brought us here today.

4. This dispute arises out of environmental protection measures that Respondent adopted in connection with the paramo ecosystem in Santurbán. Claimant is now baselessly alleging that these measures deprived it of its mining rights under a concession contract. The concession contract was entered into between Eco Oro and INGEOMINAS on 8 February 2007 for the exploration and exploitation of a deposit of different precious metals and minerals like gold, silver, zinc, copper and tin.

5. This contract relates to the Angostura gold and silver deposits located in the Soto Norte region of the department of Santander, within the Vetas California gold district in Colombia.

II) Preliminary Matters: Jurisdiction

6. We begin by respectfully arguing that the Tribunal lacks jurisdiction to hear the merits of this case. We submit four reasons why this is so. First …, Second…, Third.. and Finally…

7. Lorem ipsum …

II) Colombia has validly denied the benefits of Chapter Eight of the FTA to Eco Oro in accordance with art. 814(2) of the Treaty

8. The Tribunal lacks jurisdiction because Respondent validly denied the benefits of the FTA to Eco Oro. Respondent submits that art. 814(2) permits State parties to deny the advantages of the Treaty, including access to international arbitration, to companies which are owned or controlled by nationals of third States and have no substantial business in their State of incorporation.

9. Lorem ipsum …

II) Eco Oro Is Not A Protected Investor Under The FTA, Because It Assigned Its Claims to Non-Canadian Nationals

10. The Tribunal lacks personal jurisdiction over Eco Oro because the true beneficiary of the claim is a Delware-incorporated US company (Trexs) to whom Eco Oro assigned the benefit of its claim in July 2016.

11. Look at art. 838 of the FTA

12. Lorem ipsum …

II) Eco Oro Failed To Comply With Four of the Mandatory Conditions Precedent to Arbitration, Including Failing to Bring Its Claims Within the Limitation Period

13. The Tribunal lacks jurisdiction because Eco Oro has failed to comply with four mandatory conditions precedent set forth in art. 821 FTA. Failure to comply with the conditions in art. 821 results in nullification of Colombia’s consent to arbitrate.

14. Lorem ipsum …

II) Eco Oro’s Claim Falls Outside the Tribunal’s Temporal and Subject-Matter Jurisdiction

15. First, Eco Oro’s claims relate to a prohibition on mining in the paramo areas which has been in force since 2010. This was before the entry into force of the FTA on 15 August 2011 and the dispute between the Parties therefore arose before this entry into force. Eco Oro’s claims therefore fall outside the temporal scope of the FTA.

16. Second, Eco Oro’s claims fall outside the substantive scope of the FTA. Respondent argues that art. 2201(3) of the FTA should be construed as providing that nothing in the FTA is to be read as restricting the Contracting Parties’ ability to adopt measures “necessary to protect human, animal or plant life or health” and for “the conservation of living or non-living exhaustible natural resources”. Therefore, Respondent did not consent to arbitrate disputes that relate to such measures and fall outside the scope of the covered measures, under Section A of the FTA.

17. Eco Oro’s claims fall squarely within the Environmental Exception of the FTA and therefore outside of the Tribunal’s jurisdiction. The measures were all necessary for the protection of human, plant and animal life, namely the paramo ecosystem and for the conservation of non-living exhaustible natural resources, namely water.

18. Opinion of the Court of Justice of the European Union that states that environmental exceptions in investment instruments can act as a bar to jurisdiction over claims concerning measures for the protection of the environment.

III) Substantive Claims

19. If this Tribunal were to find, against our primary submission, that it does in fact have jurisdiction to hear this case, we would like to submit the following arguments on the merits, contesting all of the allegations that Claimant has brought forward:

III) Colombia Did Not Unlawfully Expropriate Eco Oro’s Investment

III) First, the FTA establishes the primacy of environmental protection over trade and investment.

20. A good faith reading of the FTA proves that the primacy of environmental protection over trade and investment is clear.

21. Lorem ipsum …

III) Second, Respondent did not expropriate Eco Oro’s investment

22. The measures complained by Claimant did not have an effect equivalent to direct expropriation as there was no deprivation.

23. Lorem ipsum …

John, Lesa, and Trevor form a limited liability compan

Case Study1

John, Lesa, and Trevor form a limited liability company. John contributes 60 percent of the capital, and Lesa and Trevor each contribute 20 percent. Nothing is decided about how profits will be divided. John assumes that he will be entitled to 60 percent of the profits, in accordance with his contribution. Lesa and Trevor, however, assume that the profits will be divided equally. A dispute over the profits arises, and ultimately a court has to decide the issue.



Q1) What will be the result?

Q2) How could this dispute have been avoided in the first place?



Case Study2


Deidre McFadden came to the offices of Webber & Associates seeking help in organizing her business, Fashion Angels, a toy-making enterprise focusing on dolls with multiple outfits. She wants to run the business and has few personal assets so is not worried about personal liability. Deidre’s aunt, Penelope, is elderly, wealthy, and adores her only niece. Penelope is willing to invest $500,000 to start the business, and Deidre has $10,000 to contribute on her own. Deidre expects to do all the work without compensation as it will take at least a year before Fashion Angels will make any profit. Penelope will sign any agreement terms, with one condition. Penelope is insisting that Deidre cannot leave the company, stating “I don’t want my money going to a stranger, it’s for Deidre.”

Deidre is looking for your advice as to the type of entity that would suit her best. “I don’t want my aunt to become the target for bill collectors if I fail. And to be honest, I really don’t want her interfering in the business because she can be quite aggressive.”

Q1) What advice would you give Deidre?

the advantages and disadvantages of having a checking account

the advantages and disadvantages of having a checking account

Benjamin Franklin reportedly said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” In other words, taxes will always be with us.

When we think of taxes, we often focus on the largest one, the federal personal income tax. But we also pay other taxes. Some are federal, and some are only in specific geographic areas (cities or states). Paying taxes can have a significant impact on our household budget. However, it’s also important to note the benefits we receive from services that are funded by tax dollars (public education, roads, parks, food assistance, etc.).

Identify one tax (other than federal personal income tax) you pay and one benefit you utilize that is funded by tax dollars. How do both of these impact your life and your family member’s lives?

Also, please respond to the post of at least one classmate.

the advantages and disadvantages of buying a home compared to renting

For many Americans, buying a home is a goal. But it is also expensive compared to renting. Explain some of the advantages and disadvantages of buying a home compared to renting. What are some of the key issues a first-time homebuyer should consider?

Additionally, describe a housing-related goal that you may have for yourself. What types of financial information might you need to be able to create a starting point for reaching this goal? Will you consult a financial advisor, open a savings account, or reach out to someone you know who has purchased a home?

Example of a housing goal: “I’d like to have 20% saved as a down payment on a new home.”

risky financial decision

Your webtext says, “In the world of finance, there is one certainty: you must take more risk to earn a higher return.” It then identifies the following types of risk: inflation risk, business risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk.

Risk is a consideration in many of the decisions we make. Describe a risky financial decision made by you or someone else. What were the downsides of the decision? What were the upsides? How might your financial goals and personal financial plan impact the amount of risk you are willing to take on regarding a financial decision?

Example of a risky financial decision: Withdrawing money from your retirement savings to fund a business start-up


consequences of not having insurance

consequences of not having insurance

Insurance companies willingly take on our risks for a fee. Give an example of a risk that you or someone else has chosen to insure.

How could you use your technology skill and Microsoft Excel to organize, analyze, and compare data to decide if a specific insurance is a good value for the example you gave? Think about the cost and consequences of not having insurance versus the cost of the insurance over time.

saving and investing

Economists talk about saving and investing as two separate steps. After an individual has saved some money, it’s time to decide on investments.

Describe an investment that you or someone else could make. What are the advantages of this investment? What are the disadvantages? What types of information would you review or who would you consult to help inform your decision about this investment?

Example of an investment: Deciding to enroll in your employer’s 401K plan.
