Background of the Study/Literature Review
The saying “Time is money while effectiveness is life” has been accepted by more and more people. Time is a special and rare resource (Drucker, 1985), therefore, there is a close relationship between how to use time effectively and everyone’s work, study and life.
Background of the Study/Literature Review
The saying “Time is money while effectiveness is life” has been accepted by more and more people. Time is a special and rare resource (Drucker, 1985), therefore, there is a close relationship between how to use time effectively and everyone’s work, study and life.
Time is a major organizational resource. The effective exploitation and utilization of time has a positive effect on the regular function and development of an organization (Schriber and Gutek, 1987). Management activity consists of five main factors: goal, human, environment, time and information. Time management is a major element of organizational and individual management. How to effectively exploit and utilize time resource connects closely with the chairman of the board, general manager and even down to every grass-roots worker. What is more, the crucial importance of a manager and the typical characters of their work – diversity, complexity and flexibility – gives special importance to time management of different levels and makes it the premise of the whole management activities and the base for working effectiveness. Effectiveness of a manager’s work plays the most important role in an organization’s existence, development and prosperity.

Advance Directives

...What are advance directives? Advance directives are extremely important. It is essential that everyone make some sort of arrangement before an unfortunate situation happens to them where these decisions will need to be made. An advance directive is basically a living will or a written statement in which people state the type and amount of care they wish to receive during a terminal illness and as death approaches. Medical Law and Ethics stated that “Advance directives limit the type and amount of medical care and treatment that patients will receive if they should become incompetent and have a poor prognosis. It is important that directives are placed in writing; it is not sufficient for a person to just tell someone what his or her wishes for treatment are. The courts typically enforce written advance directives.” (pg 313) There are four types of advance directives. They are a living will, durable power of attorney for healthcare, uniform anatomical gift act, and a do not resuscitate order. The living will is a “document that a person drafts before becoming incompetent or unable to make healthcare decisions.” The durable power of attorney for healthcare is “A legal document that empowers another person (proxy) to make healthcare decisions for healthcare for an incompetent patient. It goes into effect after the person becomes incompetent and only pertains to healthcare decisions.” The uniform anatomical gift act is a “law that allows persons 18 years or older and of sound......

Advance Directives

...Advance Directives Advance directives are medical documents that are created by the patient that assist health care providers, and loved ones provide care and make decisions for the patient. Four types of advance directives exist including a Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA), Uniform Anatomical Gift Act, and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders (Fremgen, 2009). This paper will discuss one type of advance directives, the DNR order. The DNR order alerts medical professionals not to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), per the patient’s request. This means that health care professionals will not attempt emergency CPR if the patient’s breathing or heartbeat stops (Smith.). Advance directives and DNR orders are important to have drawn up by the patient because in the event they are unable to speak for themselves, an order is put in place stating their wishes. This helps in assisting family members and health care professionals in making decisions when the end of life is inevitable. Advantages and Disadvantages of a DNR Order When it comes to making this difficult decision, there are many advantages and disadvantages of a DNR order. The advantages as stated in the report called, “Recording “Do Not Resuscitate” and other Life-Sustaining Orders in the Out-of-Hospital Setting” are: * Available to all patients * No personal discomfort * Deals with a range of treatment * Easy to maintain * No loss of privacy (Pace, 2002). For example, when a......

Advance Directives

...Keeshia Whiteside Advance Directives and Living Wills Health care advance directives are legal documents that communicate a person's wishes about health care decisions in the event the person becomes incapable of making health care decisions. There are two basic kinds of advance directives: living wills and durable powers of attorney for health care. * A living will expresses, in advance, a person's instructions or preferences about future medical treatments, particularly end-of-life care, in the event the person loses capacity to make health care decisions. * A durable power of attorney for health care appoints a person (called a health care agent or proxy, health care representative, or other name depending on the state) to make decisions for the person (the principal) in the event of incapacity to make health care decisions. Normally, people communicate their wishes directly to their doctors. But when a person no longer has the capacity to make or communicate a health care decision, another way to make and communicate a decision is needed. That is the role advance directives play. If no advance directive has been prepared, someone else not of the person's choosing may be called on to make health care decisions. Many states authorize default surrogate decision makers, usually next of kin. When state law does not authorize a default surrogate decision maker, doctors and hospitals still usually turn to next of kin, although the extent of their legal authority......

The population in this United States is changing; people are living longer than ever before with complex health issues, large cultural and minority groups within this country continue to grow, and those living in rural or poverty environments all in need of more support. “Affordable Care Act”, passed in 2010, there will be an influx of patients that are entering the health care arena that have had limited access to health care. The 2010 Institute of Medicine, Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, discusses changes that need to take place in order to provide efficient care to their patients which include nursing education, changes to scope of practice to fit the training Registered Nurses (RN’s) and Advance Practice Registered Nurses (AR NP’s) gained during their education, and leadership within nurses. “Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression” (Institute of Medicine, p. 163). Nurses should be prepared to be lifelong learners, and the basic education that nurses’ gain prior to licensure is just the beginning of the learning process. The NCLEX-RN, or the test required to pass to receive a RN license is pass or fail and is focused on the acute care setting. The need that is arising is that nurses need to have increase education and competency to practice in many other areas that are focusing on the community outside of the hospital......

Recent Advances in Technology Are Ruining the English Language

...aspect of today’s society. The English language is a prime example of this. Linguists from different universities have begun noticing changes in the modern English language; most of the alterations tend to be significant. The English language has been negatively affected by the rise of the Internet, smartphones and social media. To begin with, the Internet has had a significant impact on the teenagers’ lifestyle. This in turn has brought about a dramatic change in the level of English used. Firstly, adolescents in schools have recently created new acronyms to be used on the Internet such as in discussion boards or blogs. Examples of acronyms contain: ‘FYI’ (which stands for ‘for your information’), ‘TMI’ (which stands for ‘too much information’), ‘BRB’ (which stands for be right back) and ‘TTYL’ (which stands for ‘talk to you later’). As a result, these new acronyms have caused students’ English proficiency to deteriorate. The spread of the recently created acronyms have been incorporated into students’ writings which therefore gives the teachers a harder time of ‘reiterating’ the importance of being able to distinguish between the ‘social networking language’ and ‘academic writing’ This means that the students might later suffer in university when it comes to writing a professional report in their field of interest. In the meantime, the effect of adolescents using up-to-date smartphones has given more evidence to linguists on how the English language is being misused.......

(Guest & Ruiz, 2005) In conclusion, dressing surgical wounds healing by secondary intention with CMCD instead of gauze is expected to lead to a reduction in healthcare costs in both the U.S. and the U.K. Hence, the purchase of a dressing is not indicative of the cost effectiveness of a given method of surgical wound care. (Guest & Ruiz, An adjective that I would use to describe this article would be surprise. I want to go into surgical nursing when I complete nursing school and I was surprised at the kind of article I found on some of the advances in surgical nursing. I thought I would’ve come across a much more interesting and informal article than what I did. Am I interested in whether CMCD is more cost efficient in the end? Sure! I learned something I hadn’t known before I started this paper. Am I disappointed that I didn’t find a much more exciting, life-changing article on advances in surgical nursing? Definitely.

...average life expectancy for human beings in Canada has increased from the range of 45 to 75 years. While changes in our lifestyle (such as improved nutrition, reduction in smoking, and proper exercise) have played a part, this dramatic increase in our life expectancy is largely due to advances in health care as a result of medical research. From antibiotics, to new treatments for diseases like cancer, and new surgical techniques, medical research has brought about many advances in the health care field. Medical research has also made a larger number of people aware of harmful stuff. One disease which has seen remarkable medical advances is cancer. The past 30 years have seen major developments in understanding the genetics, biology, and treatment of the disease. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, the cancer death rate dropped 21 percent in men, and nice percent in women between 1988, and 2007.These lower death rates can be contributed to improvements in screening and early detection, and improvements in different methods used to treat various types of cancer. Although cancer is still the leading cause of death in Canada the death rates are declining, and will continue to decline as medical advances improve treatment. The discovery and introduction of antibiotics has also proved to be a very useful one. Antibiotics play an important role in our society. The credit of invention goes to Sir Alexander Fleming whose careful observations in 1928 resulted in the invention......

...In this paper, I will discuss advance directives, what it is, and the reason for it. I will talk about the issues that are currently facing advance directives care and talk about whether it has failed, or not. Finally, I will prove my stand on the issues with evidence. What is Advance Directives? An Advance directive is a living will, which allows one to document their wishes concerning medical treatments at the end of life. Even though it’s optional, but all health care facilities are required by law to ask patients if they have one, and offer them the appropriate information, and documents to sign if they want it. There are two basic kinds of advance directives, living wills, and durable powers of attorney for health care. Advance directives are legally valid throughout the United States, but the laws governing advance directives vary from state, to state.   Anyone can have advance directives, no lawyer is required, and it becomes validas soon as you sign it in front of the required witnesses. Anyone can be a witness. Reasons for advance directives Advance directive is designed to empower patients, and to allow them to have a voice in their care. It provides a way for patients to communicate their wishes to family, friends and health care professionals, when they are no longer able to do so. With advance care directives, you can express how much, or how little care you want done for you when you are no longer able to make these decisions for yourself. You can also......

...Advance Directives Catherine Miller IRSC Ethical/Legal Issues NUR3826 Carol Amole, Debra Cornwell, Susan Wise December 1, 2015 Advance Directives An 89 year old patient came to the emergency room from a nursing home. Per the nursing home staff, the patient had a “floppy leg” and grimaced when that leg was moved. The patient’s advance directive paperwork was provided. The patient is non-verbal. An advance directive is a document composed by competent patient’s that ensure the right of self-determination: the right of every person to make their own decisions about their medical treatment, including the right to refuse treatment (Martin, 2013). As the primary nurse for the patient, I felt it was my responsibility to inform all the medical staff that was involved in her care of the presence of the advance directives. The doctor was the first to be informed. The advance directive is a written instruction recognized under state law relating to provision of such care when the patient is incapacitated (Martin, 2013). The paperwork that was provided was a DNR status, and also a Durable Power of Attorney, naming her husband. A Durable Power of Attorney is a document that allows a patient to designate a person to make decisions about their health care in a case where they are not able to make decisions themselves. It gives some direction about the kinds of medical treatment they want ("Understanding," n.d.). When my patient’s husband arrived to the emergency......

...IT Advances Cause Acts to Be Created Telemarketers have been interrupting individuals for ages. Telemarketers call anytime, wanting individuals to donate, vote for or against, and purchase items. In an effort to address a growing number of telephone marketing calls, Congress enacted in 1991 the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) (FCC, 8/02). Within 11 years after the creation of the TCPA Act, the Do Not Call Implementation Act, 2003 was created. The Do Not Call Implementation Act, 2003 goes hand-in-hand with the TCPA. The Do Not Call Implementation Act limits the phone numbers telemarketers are allowed to call. Telemarketers were using autodialing and pre recorded messages to make their pitches to individuals throughout the United States. No matter the time or day these calls would constantly make the phone ring. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 1991 protects these individuals from receiving these types of calls. The telemarketing companies can only call from eight A.M. to nine P.M. The telemarketing company’s received strict rules toward their auto dialing machines. The companies must announce their name and give the name and address of the business they are calling for. Calls are not allowed to be made with phony voices, no recordings to cell phones, and the individual cannot be charged for the call. Telemarketing companies are subject to fines ranging from $500 to $1,500 for each violation. In 2003 the national Do not Call Registry was created....

...We live in an age of great technological advances. Some advances make our lives more enjoyable, while others reduce our work loads. The most valuable are the inventions that make us safer. The self-driving car is one such advance that can dramatically improve our safety. The ideal product will be a car which can be simply given the destination and then allowed to safely pilot itself there without the need for any further human control. It is widely acknowledged that motor vehicle crashes are a leading preventable cause of death and injury. It is also commonly known that distractions, fatigue, and chemical impairment are the sources of many motor vehicle crashes. Self-driving cars can significantly reduce crashes, and the resulting death and injuries, from those three factors. Radios, billboards, and similar distractions have long diverted drivers’ attentions from the crucial task of focusing on the safe operation of the vehicle. Now technological advances such as cell phones, Wi-Fi, online videos and other similar sources also constantly vie for the attention of drivers. Self-driving cars allow the driver to amuse or busy themselves with whatever other task they need or want to attend to, while the car safely negotiates the journey on its own. Driving a vehicle is a task which is also well-known to be adversely affected by fatigue. As we try to cram more and more into each day, we tend to sacrifice sleep, leading to fatigue.

...One of the best careers to get into is information technology (IT). Information technology is the use of telecommunications and computers to retrieve, store, transmit, and manipulate information. “The world of information technology is constantly changing. Whether you’re a developer for a large company or a small company, in a management position, freelancing or anything else, the world of IT is changing all the time” (Complete IT Professional). Because of certain advances in IT, new ethical issues often arise. An ethical issue, according to businessdictionary.com, is “a problem or situation that requires a person or organization to choose between alternatives that must be evaluated as right (ethical) or wrong (unethical).” Often, it is extremely necessary to protect the people from wrong. In 1978, the Electron Funds Transfer was created. More recently, in 2003, the Do Not Call Implementation Act was created. There were advances in IT that resulted in new ethical issues necessitating the creation of each act. Credit and debit cards have been replacing paper checks at a fast growing rate. This means that the paper evidence that checks offer is descending. ATMs and electronic banking is taking over because it is so convenient. “The explosion of electronic financial transactions created a new need for rules that would give consumers the same level of confidence that they had in the checking system” (investopedia).
