Identify the issues the hospital is currently facing

Question Description
I need support with this Health & Medical question so I can learn better.

The purpose of this assignment is to develop a proposal for a quality improvement plan to improve future patient safety.

Assume that you have recently been hired as the special assistant to the chief executive officer (CEO) of your health care organization, Thunder Hospital. Your duty is to head up the new quality improvement department. Over the last year, the hospital has experienced substantial growth but is also facing a number of patient safety concerns, including a steady increase in medical errors and a 25% rise in hospital-acquired infections. Based upon what you have learned in this course, prepare a quality improvement plan to present to the CEO with strategies for addressing these issues.

In a 1,000-1,250-word proposal, include the following:

Identify the issues the hospital is currently facing and how they are affecting quality outcomes and endangering patients.
Present a detailed plan to improve quality and elaborate on how it aligns with the hospital’s initiatives to improve value-added health care. Discuss the quality improvement tool you suggest using to locate and ameliorate problem areas, as well as the roles and responsibilities of involved stakeholders, financial considerations for the implementation of your proposal, the goals of the plan, and methods for evaluating its success.
Examine the effects that the implementation of this proposal will have upon administrators, clinicians, and physicians. Explore possible challenges that could arise with stakeholders reacting negatively to changes presented by this proposed plan. What strategies or preventive measures could be put in place to reduce the friction between various health care providers?
How will your plan improve overall quality for Thunder Hospital? How will the improvements your plan suggests implementing now set the hospital up to continue providing quality care in the future?
Cite at least four references, including the textbook.

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.
