Reimbursement from health insurance companies is indeed important, but how important will it be if the patient is harmed during time of care. According to Needleman as mentioned above staffing does matter and is very important in achieving patient satisfaction. This should not be neglected in order for a facility to try and cut back on hiring more people to get the job done right. Neglect in this area could affect reimbursements
Clinicians and researchers have cited a multitude of ethical principles when supporting arguments for or against family presence during resuscitation. On one hand family presence may be unhealthy for the family and cause untoward provider stress during an already tense situation. However, on the other hand do families have the right to attend these events and might it be beneficial for closure and education. Members of the health care team must evaluate both sides of the question. Impact Statement Nurses serve as vital members of hospital resuscitation teams and as such family presence during the process directly impacts nursing.
The culture of caring involves intervening programs that help to build caring behaviors among nurses.

As of now too much decision lies with the healthcare professionals and this can lead to faulty decision making because the health care providers are doing what they believe is in our best interest. In reality the patient or ourselves only have the true idea how we would like our final days to be carried out. By developing and carrying out an end of care plan we can take the decision making out of the family and doctors and place it on the patient. By all counts the need for change is apparent within the healthcare industry in regards to end of life care. By considering this unique change a great deal of improvement can be derived from this decision making process.

This is an example of the modernization theory, those incapable of staying informed of and able to utilize new technologies and methodologies will inevitably lag behind the bell curve. This effect of modernization complements the disengagement theory because when people fall behind the bell curve, they are no longer fit to remain as a comparably productive member of society and so society slowly pushes those people into their own section where they can live free of the pressure to conform. For the elderly, this comes in the form of movement from their family or their own house to an assisted living or nursing home environment. It is safer in these places and they can get any help they need at a moment’s notice, something often unavailable anywhere else. The view of aging in the U.S. focuses around trying to regain something lost, namely youth.
Nurse’s intent to provide the best therapeutic care to their patients but in doing so, question is, are they crossing their professional boundaries? Nursing is a profession that changes according to economic viability, technological advances, and milestones in teaching and patients demands.

Further, nurses like any other are humans and they have this skill of humanity which is both hard to gauge and never been measured. Humanity in nursing is direct correlation to care and in the process of delivering care to the patient, nurses more than often cross professional boundaries.
In each situation I stated the problem of not properly identifying the specific job role, collected additional information and analyze the problem- what led to the personnel to in accurately identify themselves as a “nurse”- in the case of the OB/GN office, the MA was truthful in stating “I liked how it felt to be called a nurse, I want to be a nurse.” In the family practice office the MA stated “I am in the role of the nurse so what is the problem?” Develop alternatives and analyze and compare them/ Select the best alternative and justify your decision- I reinforced the role each member provides in the success of the team in providing patient care and pointed out the legal and ethical problems that could arise from false representation. This was effective in the OB/GYN office and not as effective in the family practice office. Develop strategies to successfully implement a chosen alternative and take action/ Evaluate the outcome and prevent similar occurrences- I feel I was successful in the OB/GYN office due to several key factors- reinforcement of the team approach to health care and acknowledging the value of each member, the MA did go on to attend nursing school and will graduate this year. Unfortunately, I was not as successful in the family practice office and ultimately decided to resign my position due to this misrepresentation and other
