Designing my own healthcare organization
Type of organization
Compared to people who live in cities, rural people have a lot more health problems, mostly because they don’t have access to good health services. These people are likely to die because their health care needs, like getting specialized care, aren’t being met well enough. A new report from the CDC shows that people in rural areas are more likely to die from heart disease, cancer, lung infections, and unintentional injuries than people in cities. These problems show how important it is to have tools that can help improve the health of rural areas. Rural health clinics (RHC) are medical facilities in underserved places that are close to the people who need care. RHCs are helpful because they give people access to basic care that might not be available to them otherwise. The RHCs also give basic emergency care to people in rural areas and use mid-level doctors to make up for a lack of healthcare workers.
The type of group I’m making is a rural health clinic that will give the people it serves basic health care services. The group is called Calif Health Clinic (CHC), and it will help people who live in California. The institution’s goal is to improve the customer experience by offering healthcare services that are based on facts. By building relationships of trust, the organization will be able to provide caring, specialized, and innovative healthcare that is of high quality. Also, the healthcare organization will make sure that its healthcare task force gives the people it serves the best care possible. The goal of CHC is to take care of people by giving them the best experience possible, so that each person can leave the facility feeling happy and healthy. The long-term goal of the center is to improve the health and quality of life of the people who live there while still meeting the standards.
Some of the organization’s main values are:
Fairness and fairness
Peace of mind and safety
Equity and Equality: In CHC, our goals are to create equity and equality. To make sure everyone gets the best care, it will be important to treat everyone the same. Without keeping track of their measurable traits, each person will be cared for, and their results will be fair and equal. People of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, and social, economic, religious, and political backgrounds will get the same service.
Security and Safety: Making sure patients are safe and secure is a key part of giving good healthcare services today. Everyone agrees that services for patients should be safe, efficient, and based on what the patient needs. Calif Health Clinic will try to give safe and secure health care by hiring qualified staff, giving services quickly, and sending patients to other doctors when needed. Safety will also be improved by putting in place clear rules, building capacity, improving quality, and making good use of technology.
Teamwork: The healthcare staff of today is made up of many teams that work together to give patients good care. Patients will get care at the Calif Health Clinic that is built on the values of working as a team and having team spirit. Through good communication and working together, the institution will be able to handle patient concerns based on the skills, knowledge, and expertise of each person. Education, training, and good guidance will also be used to improve the patient experience through teamwork.
Accountability: In healthcare, accountability is all about taking responsibility and being clear. Calif Health Clinic will try to improve things and do things in a way that helps the group reach its goals. All healthcare workers will be held responsible for their actions, and the goal will be to measure the organization’s success against the highest standards of honesty and responsibility.
Innovation: In healthcare, innovation means coming up with ideas that can be used on a large scale for systems, products, technologies, or policies that guide how services are given. As the healthcare business moves toward using technology to provide care, Calif Health Clinic will take advantage of the chance to use health information technology to help patients. Patients will be helped in the most creative way possible, while their values and norms will be taken into account.
Customer interaction: Through customer interaction, Calif Health Clinic hopes to improve the health of its patients. The way healthcare is given today is patient-centered, which means that choices about care and quality are based on what the patient needs and wants. Customers will be more satisfied with the help of collaborative care and shared decision making. Most importantly, the care will focus on the physical and emotional health of the people treated while taking into account their culture and values.

How to Describe the Nurse Manager
Healthcare systems all over the world face different problems when trying to provide high-quality care at a low cost. Effective nursing leadership and management are needed to help all healthcare organizations provide high-quality care. In nursing, leadership and management are two different terms that describe the jobs of nursing professionals who direct nursing staff and keep an eye on how things are done while giving care to patients. For example, nurse managers are in charge of supervising staff, making sure that patients get the care they need, making work schedules, coordinating meetings, and making sure that both patients and healthcare workers can work safely. On the other hand, nurse leaders have to make important choices that affect how healthcare services are given. These people figure out how to make decisions and solve problems about quality and cost in a healthcare system that is complicated and always changing. At the Calif Health Clinic, I plan to take on a leadership role so that I can help make choices that could improve care, keep patients safe, and keep costs down.
How a Nurse Leader Looks and Acts
Changes to the healthcare system on a large scale and other perceived problems show how important good leadership is. I think that a good nurse leader is someone who never stops learning, who can think critically, and who is open to new ideas. Anonson et al. (2014) say that for a leader to have the expected effect in CHC, he or she needs to know a lot, keep growing professionally, and be very skilled. The healthcare system of today uses technology and has made other changes that require the nurse leader to be on the lookout. I will show trust in how I do my job and make sure that other health care workers do their jobs well. As someone who wants to keep learning throughout their lives, I will be open to new ideas and work to improve my skills through education and training.
Nurse leaders are goal-oriented people who work hard to get their staff to work toward the organization’s goal. The leader should be able to speak well, listen carefully, and lead the team to do good work. (Anonson et al., 2014) says that a nurse leader must know the staff’s strengths and flaws and work every day to keep them motivated. I will make sure my staff is inspired by giving them a safe place to work and using a method called “shared governance.” Using evidence-based practices, I will make sure the company does well in all areas of quality care to reach the overall goal of the best health for the whole population. I think that the organization’s goals will be met if workers know their own strengths and weaknesses and work to improve them while they are being motivated.
Self-awareness is a key part of being a good leader in nursing. It means being able to understand your own thoughts and how they affect others. To get along well with people, the nurse leader must be aware of his ego and the ways he is driven by his ego. Anonson et al. (2014) say that self-awareness includes things like being able to control your feelings and knowing what will happen if you do something. A nurse leader works with many different people with different types in the healthcare setting. Being self-aware is an important tool for building good relationships with these people. As a leader in CHC, I will make sure to check in with myself by meditating, keeping a journal, and getting help when I need it.
Successful nurse leaders are dedicated, motivated, and focused on achieving the vision, mission, and goals of the company. To get these results, the nurse leader works to build a strong team and leads by example. For regular patient care, a good nurse leader must come up with ways to work together with other nurses. Anonson et al. (2014) say that collaborative practice is important because it makes sure that everyone on the clinical team has a chance to help improve patient results. Also, being committed to achieving the organization’s goals means dealing with conflicts in the right way. The nurse leader must be honest when dealing with conflicts and use methods that help people get along instead of those that make healthcare teams fight with each other.
To make the most of opportunities in healthcare, nurse leaders must speak up for their colleagues and the field as a whole. As the most important part of the healthcare team, nurse leaders must always be on the lookout for ways to represent their people and push for better healthcare policies. Aside from making political arguments, the nurse boss must make sure that the healthcare teams are giving patients the best care possible. Strategies like having meetings and audits will help to keep the level of healthcare high. I will speak out against bad practices and help people get the right health care while involving them in decision making.
Getting better at being a leader
The evidence we have now shows that successful nursing leadership development depends on a number of things. Good leadership skills in nursing can be developed through things like schooling, experience, and hard work. One way I can improve my leading skills is to keep learning throughout my life. There is enough data to show that getting more education helps people become good leaders. Focusing on ideas and theories that guide how to care for patients and make decisions makes nurses into leaders.
The second thing I can do to improve my leadership is to focus on doing things well. I’ll make sure to set the right goals and check in on them every so often to keep track of my organization’s progress. The American Nurses Association tells nurse leaders that they can make a difference by advocating for their patients and getting them involved in their care. For example, ANA strongly suggests getting staff input and involving them in strategy planning. These strategies will make sure that the company is doing its best.
Mentoring and coaching are helpful and successful ways to improve one’s ability to lead. Career coaching is a way to improve leadership skills because it makes people less likely to give up. Coaching also gives leaders a chance to think about what they are doing and make any changes that are needed. Mentoring, on the other hand, gives the leader a chance to learn from experts and copy good leadership behaviors. I plan to use these ways to improve my leadership skills, especially when it comes to fixing problems in the healthcare field.
Strategies to give staff more power
Employee empowerment is important for the growth of a company because it lets team members take action and make decisions. As a nurse leader at CHC, the first way to give workers more power is to give them tasks. (Bogue & Joseph, 2019) Delegating jobs to staff means letting them decide how to do them. I think that when you delegate, you should do it with the goal of growing and developing your skills, not to avoid your responsibilities. When a nurse leader gives tasks to other people, it shows that she trusts them to do the right thing when given the chance.
The second way to give staff more power is to let them help make decisions. Employees need to feel like they are a part of the healthcare team and are helping to get better care by making decisions. Institutions that don’t use shared decision making have bad results for their patients and a lot of staff turnover (Bogue & Joseph, 2019). As a leader in CHC, I will use group decision making by calling meetings when policy issues come up or when quality needs to be improved. Staff will feel like they are part of the healthcare team if they are put in charge of these meetings and consulted before decisions are made. In addition to letting everyone weigh in on decisions, the nurse leader should be open to new ideas and suggestions from staff, even if they don’t help with the final choice.
Employees can be given more power when they are given information and comments on time. When staff does a good job, they should be praised and congratulated to keep them doing it. During actions to improve quality, the leader should give timely feedback on what went well and what needs to be changed. For these methods to work, clear lines of contact must be set up that make it easier for information to get around the unit. (Bogue & Joseph, 2019) Also, the type of leadership style used can help empower people by sharing knowledge. For example, autocratic leadership can make it harder for people to talk to each other and share knowledge in the facility.
Recognizing and rewarding healthcare workers can be a good way to give them more power. The goal of the award system is to show employees how much they are appreciated for doing good work and to get other employees to do the same. Staff must be encouraged to work hard by giving awards to the best workers from time to time. It is also important in modern healthcare because it supports new ways of doing things that could change the way healthcare is given. The system of rewards gives staff a reason to care for patients, which leads to hard work, focus, and good results for patients.
To give workers more power, you need to give them access to resources. I think that one of the best ways to give staff more power is to give them the tools they need and a good place to work. Nurse leaders can give their employees the tools they need to do their jobs well and improve the organization’s success. (Bogue & Joseph, 2019) The leader should be able to help staff with their problems and give them money and other tools. As a boss at CHC, I will make sure that the staff has the tools they need to care for patients. I will also encourage collaboration and teamwork to make the workplace a good place to be.
Getting to Know the Health Care Team
Healthcare is a job for a group. The groups that make up the healthcare task force include nurses, doctors, technicians, pharmacists, community health workers, engineers, and others. The information technology team will be one of the CHC teams I will work with.
Since the Institute of Medicine Report (IOM) came out, health information technology (HIT) tools have been developed and used quickly all over the world. Alotaibi and Federico (2017) say that health information technology is the processing of information using computer hardware and software, such as recording, saving, and retrieving health information. HIT can change healthcare in many ways, such as by lowering human errors, improving clinical outcomes, and making it easier to coordinate care. The IT team will play a big role in making sure that CHC adopts and uses health information technology. I plan to set up an electronic health record (EHR) system in the hospital to help with recording patient information. The information technology team will be very important for making sure that the technology is set up safely and that data, including data security problems, is checked regularly.
Teamwork that works well
Tracking the team’s success all the time is more of a managerial job than a leadership job. It makes sure that everyone sticks to their assigned roles. The first thing I will do to make sure that the IT team works well is to use key performance indicators (KPIs). KPIs are important tools that are used to see if people or healthcare teams are following the standards that have been set. For example, the IT team’s KPIs will include whether or not the building has web services, whether or not computer systems work well together, and how well patient data is protected. The KPIs will show if the chosen team has the skills to run the chosen information system in the building.
The second way to make sure that the IT team works well is to review and compare the results of standards on a regular basis. The head of the IT team will give monthly reports on how the team is doing so that they can be looked at. Every year, benchmarks will be used to compare how the group uses technology to how similar institutions do it. The results will help figure out how good the team is at putting in place and keeping up HIT tools in the facility.
Problems with health care
People from different backgrounds work in healthcare, which means that disagreements are common at work. Most disagreements in nursing are between people, like between doctors and nurses, between patients and nurses, or even between nurses themselves (Angelo, 2019). Based on the situation, I will use the following steps to solve the problem:
Step 1: The first step will be to explain what’s going on so that both nurses can understand what’s going on. I’ll make sure to ask the nurses for more information about why it’s hard to order goods.
Step 2: The second step is to set a shared goal, which will be to order supplies in the unit in a way that works well. I will ask each nurse to tell me what they think is the best way to order goods for each party and why.
Step 3: Once I have all of the nurses’ thoughts, I will talk with them about different ways to solve the problem. (Angelo, 2019) I will work to make sure that all possible choices are used up by talking, coming up with ideas, and using critical thinking.
Step 4: The fourth step is to figure out what’s getting in the way of reaching the shared goal. During this talk, I’ll explain what can and can’t be done to change the situation and offer ways to get around the problems we’ve found.
Step 5: At this step, you’ll talk about the best way to settle the difference you’ve found. I will help the people who have different ideas decide what the best way is to order goods for the unit. I will also talk about what each team needs to do to reach the goal.
