Health Care Financial Management for Nurse Managers: Applications in Hospitals, Long-Term Care, Home Care, and Ambulatory Care applies financial concepts to various health care settings. Since reimbursement varies between these settings, nurse managers must understand how to effectively manage financial data specific to each setting. In hospitals, three financial examples are given to effectively manage financial data either using, or not using, a patient classification system. The chapters on long-term care explain the Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI), including the Minimum Data Set (MDS)

This volume deals with the reorganizing of health care delivery systems: problems of managed care and other models of health care delivery. Issues of how to best organize a health care delivery system are not new, but the amount of interest in this topic in the US (as well as in other countries) has grown in recent decades. Reorganizing health care delivery systems is a concern of many systems of the world, and this volume contains some papers from countries other than the US, although the majority of the papers do relate issues to the US health care delivery system. While most papers relate t

Does government spend too little or too much on child care? How can education dollars be spent more efficiently? Should government’s role in medical care increase or decrease? In this volume, social scientists, lawyers, and a physician explore the political, social, and economic forces that shape policies affecting human services. Four in-depth studies of human-service sectors--child care, education, medical care, and long-term care for the elderly--are followed by six cross-sector studies that stimulate new ways of thinking about human services through the application of economic the

In the United States and throughout the industrialized world, just as the population of older and sicker patients is about to explode, we have a major shortage of nurses. Why are so many RNs dropping out of health care’s largest profession? How will the lack of skilled, experienced caregivers affect patients? These are some of the questions addressed by Suzanne Gordon’s definitive account of the world’s nursing crisis. In Nursing against the Odds, one of North America’s leading health care journalists draws on in-depth interviews, research studies, and extensive firsthand reporting to

Critical care medicine has become established as a specialty with its own therapies and procedures, with significant implications for clinical nephrology regarding severe acute renal failure. This typically multi-factorial condition is today predominantly seen in intensive care units. The complex knowledge and skills necessary to handle it have resulted in a field called "critical care nephrology", where nephrologist and intensivist either work side by side or have formally acquired expertise and training in both specialties. Extracorporeal renal replacement therapies, although originally used
