ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEMS AND QUALITY LEADERSHIP 9
To lead means to exercise some control as well as to show some levelof governance as it also involves the ability to apply propermanagement skills alongside being a good and a worthy steward oflegislation. Ethical leadership, on the other hand, involves being aleader who follows and adheres to the social code of conduct. Such aform of leadership forms part and parcel of governance that issensitive to the right code of conduct and strictly follows thepostulates of both professional as well as efficient administration(Leatherman, 2008). An effective, ethical leadership in place equalsproper social management that results in a peaceful coexistence asleadership built on ethics is the one that the society needs forgrowth, development, and sustainability. Effective leadership is thekey element in the social transformational agenda, and it plays asignificant role in ensuring peace, tranquility and harmony prevail.This forms the basis of a real and true essence of qualityleadership.
Different management bodies involved in both consultancy services,as well as educational structures, tend to give a description of anorganizational system. An organizational system would mean any givenstructure a business regulatory framework would use. Such a structurewould be in place with a view of organizing the core mandates andfunctions of the firm as well as assign different responsibilities todifferent employees within the same framework. Most of theorganizational systems tend to become sophisticated especially withinlarge corporations. Owners of the micro-business activities applyseveral and shared organizational models for running their businessactivities, and this refines the business and makes it grow to ensureits continuity. Organizational structures are different depending onthe size of one`s institution ranging from a flat, hierarchical, bydepartments all the way to the divisional organizational systems inany institutional framework. They aid in the proper execution ofworkmanship and ensure there is good management.
A case analysis at any instance involves a problem-solving techniquethat is applied to identify a cause of a problem. Typically, RootCause Analysis is applied primarily as a method of reactive to helpidentify events and their causes. Nonetheless, it also contributes toreveal faults as well as helps to solve them and this prevents arepeat of the same fault as an analysis gets done after anoccurrence. There are so many methods involved in the Root CauseAnalysis including the five whys, clip art, fish bone as well ashealth care.
Using the health root cause analysis, there is the element of theequipment as well as materials failure this results in a process,not in a position to be executed properly. Such is the cause of thepoor, and improper people`s management and efficient service deliverhence the reason for a problem or a fault getting to occur as theresult. The hospital lacks enough materials and equipment to caterfor the increasing number of patients getting to be admitted. Such adeficiency impairs and reduces the workmanship and efficiency of mostof the practitioners within the health facility, and this makes themfail to attend to all the patients present. Lack of the well enoughcut out materials within the installation results into smallattention from the hospital attendants to their respective patientsthey have to strain and stretch overboard to able to reach to mostpatients. Such are the conditions that result in improper health carebeing administered to the patients, and this causes the death of someof the patient. From the reduced management levels and poorattendance to the patients, there is the reason for the problem wherepatients fail to get enough care and treatment hence some of them endup dying in the process. The medical root cause analysis emphasizesthe role of equipment and materials as the sole machinery behind theproper execution of a process to the people concerned to avoid afault from occurring. From the above case scenario within the healthfacility, there is the issue of the equipment and materials at handthat reduces the efficiency of the practitioners. From that there isthe reduction and below par execution of proper treatment and careprocess that results into a fault of some patients losing theirlives.
One main advantage in most of a health care system that getsintegrated is that there is the ability to fast track a problem aswell as do an implementation of a transformation widely.Contemporary, the health care facilitation is transforming at arather higher rate hence the significance to get focused on thecontinuous improvement of quality in the day to day Medicareprovisions. Looking at the most messes in the health carefacilitation as the one presented in the scenario there need to be aplan at hand to help improve and better policies as well as machineryfor adequate medical care. To sort the mess above and prevent furtherrepeats of the same there needs to be proper infrastructure well keptand enough to cater for all the patients. Such a measure will makethe workmanship of most medical practitioners very effective andefficient sufficiently to avoid deaths of patients. Most of thefacilities in place need to be scrutinized and be increased to serveall those affected.
There need to be enough medical care services alongside increasedhuman resource deployment in most of the health care apartments toensure none is deprived of a quality attendance as well as care andtreatment. Such corrective measures follow the Partners` ClinicalProcess Improvement Leadership Program. The initiative got launchedin 2010 with one focus and agenda to engage clinicians and theircounterparts in the proper application of the improvement of themedical equipment. From that there would be a reduction in thevariation in the health care provision as this improves patients`outcomes. Such a measure ensure that the patients get the rightdiagnosis before any prescription can be done as it also providesthat the health care managers are not deprived of enough machinery toproperly execute and deliver their services as require. The mentionedmechanism ensure that the patient`s life is restored reducing thelevel of deaths as in the case showcased in the presented scenario.The Partners` Clinical Process Improvement Leadership Program thatcould be used to solve the fault in the case presented is a quickrated as well as an immersion facilitation that tends to giveinvolved participants tools. Such tools prove necessary and areneeded to evaluate properly alongside improve medical processing toprovide proper diagnosis that would lead to better health caredeliverance. The program also advocates for enough and efficienttools for diagnosis, prescription and follow ups and this will reducedeaths among patients.
For the above corrective mechanism to stand tall for long and notfall short with time, there needs to be a strategy to ensure theimprovement plan exists for as long as it can. To do this, there hasto be an employment of another mechanization of the same involving ananalysis of the failure mode and effects. The analysis studies thereliability of a given improvement system in place as well as themalfunctions alongside some of the problems that might arise in theprocess of the use of the plan. Such reviews are vital andfundamental as they tend to carry out and identification of thefailure modes alongside their root causes as well as their impacts.In each and every component, the modes of failure, as well as theeffects resulting from the system, gets recorded in a given worksheetfor interpretation. The success of Failure Modes and Effects Analysisactivity lies in its ability to help identify any form of anypotential failure mode. This is fully based either on an experiencewith a similar product and processes or a common scientific approachof failure logic.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis involves a method of a step bystep to identify all the possible faults in a particular design or aplan as well as a process geared towards an improvement within anyinstitution. (Espejo, 2011) Using the analysis, some technicalitiesneed to be put consideration to ensure it effectively works and helpssort the mess. These include the right person who are well acquaintedwith the working of the analysis and understands how to go about itas well as the right steps in the assessment and evaluation of agiven plan in question. From the above case, some of the minds thatwould form part and parcel of the analysis program would includemedical doctors who understand how machines work, technical benchregarding the individuals from a business firm who knows managementskills and who disseminate the right principles of workmanship. Theincorporation of the minds that clearly understands the legalprocedures in the whole process would also be helpful as far theanalysis of the plan is feasible or not. It would also be of greatsignificance to bring in those who have worked with the project andseen it work. I would invite those from other heath care facilitieswhich are doing well as a result of enough and proper well keptmedical tools and equipment. There would also need to incorporateexperts in the field of medical care to clearly gives us anyadditional information as far as the-the tools of medical assistanceis concerned. There would also be the need to incorporate patientswho got a fast and a proper medical care service out of enough andsufficient medical care tools within a given health facility.
In preparation for the analysis, I would involve some steps toachieve my goal in the study. I would first get to assemble a team ofpeople full of a diverse know how regarding the whole process as wellas the product alongside the needs of the intended patients, afterthat the scope. Then fill a form and proceed on to make anidentification of the role of the framework of the analysis and eachrole identify the probable means in which the failure can occur.(Berke, 2005) In each and every mode of failure, I determine thepossible impacts on the system and define the seriousness of eachimpact and in each and every failure mode try to come up with alltheir root causes. In each and every object, determine the rate ofthe occurrence, identify the current process control and in eachcontrol determine the rate of detection. After that, recommendationwould be made after some calculations, have been put in place andresults produced.
In the application of the three elements of the analysis involvingseverity, occurrence and detection, I would take the plan into amedical set up and apply it there and see its workability. The plan`slevel of severity depends on its ability to measure up to its coremandate and determines its level of correcting the problem at hand.In the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, an occurrence involves anyinstance such that a plan towards rectification fails to measure up.Such is a case where a model set up fails to correct the mess or inone way or the other tends not sort a problem out as far as a changeplan is concerned. The course in any occurrence gets realized througha detective mechanism for instance an end result of the plan. Anoccurrence would also involve a plan working through hence itsimplementation encouraged. When a given plan towards rectifying a agiven root cause of a specific problem fails to work out then it isdetected to be faulty and corrective mechanism. Detections are key inthe analysis since they help in correcting the plan and create a newplan in place. I would use some time after the inception of thescheme in the given medical health facility and wait to see anyimprovement as far as medical care, and health practice is concerned.Such in the case of any improper outcome within the given stipulateddays, then that would call for another mindset and bring forthanother idea in the plan. I would not be in a hurry to see the planeither work out or not I would be very patient enough for theproject to materialize and mature up for its full inception henceapplication. I would use the three elements as described in thepreceding in materializing my improvement plan to see patientsbenefit from it by reducing the number of deaths and othermisfortunes in the heath care facilitation.
Interventions from the program geared towards improving the healthcare can be done through the patients themselves. (Baskerville, 2013)The inception of the policy is done in a given health facility, andresponses are waited upon from those visiting the facility, attentionis made regarding any improvement in the health care facilitationusing the plan of increasing the medical tools and keeping in a goodstate. In case the plan fails, another plan would be needed tocounteract the initial one, and that would form the basis of theintervention. I would also involve other intellects to assess andcorrect where appropriate for better service delivery and also tooffer proper advice just in case the plan fails.
Nursing is part and parcel of a profession found within the sectorof the health care. It focuses on and within the care of personsalongside families as well as communities, and this is done to eitherattain, maintain or even recover a life that is quality and lived tothe fullest. They can be leaders in the health care in quality healthcare provisions by being passionate about patients. They can alsolead to offering better care and treatments, making follow-ups ofpatients and being very close to the patients to ensure the patientsgets better medical attention. Nurses can also be on the forefront toensure a proper diagnosis is made, and the right prescriptionadministered as well as emancipate the patients on better ways tohandle drugs. Such techniques include completing the dosage as perthe prescription and informing patients of the importance of adheringto the medical care visits. Such measures help to provide qualityhealth care, reduce the number of deaths of patients and see thefuture growth.
In a summary, health care is as important as food, shelter, andclothing and it must be taken very seriously with proper measures andpolicies put in place. In cases of any mishaps, appropriate plansgeared towards the change need to be encouraged to avoid deaths andpromote life among people. Life is precious so is quality health carein any medical facility.
