INTERMOUNTAIN HEALTHCARE: PATIENT SAFETY WORKPLACE STRESS.
Begin by identifying an organizational problem within your own workplace healthcare setting or a hypothetical healthcare organization. If you choose a problem in your workplace, be sure to utilize data from that healthcare organization; if you have created a hypothetical healthcare organization, you may use a public domain database with instructor permission. As this is a scholarly initiative, this assignment must adhere to all APA requirements and formatting, and include peer-reviewed and evidence-based sources to support any and all claims. As you develop this first part of the assignment, consider the following prompts to formulate your paper.
I. What Is the Organizational Problem? A. Provide a contextual basis for the organizational problem that you have chosen. How does this problem fail to meet quality or other regulatory requirements?
B. Articulate organizational challenges posed by the problem (e.g., interdepartmental conflicts, communication failure, budgeting issues).
II. Evidence-Based Support A. Provide data that supports the existence of the problem. You may utilize public sources to find data related to your selected problem.
B. How has this problem been addressed in the past? What information management systems or patient care technologies have been utilized when addressing this problem? Be sure to use peer-reviewed literature to support your answer.
C. Discuss relevant accreditation standards, safety standards, compliance standards, and quality initiatives. How do these standards promote a culture of safety within the department? Be sure to cite the appropriate standards within your answer.
