relationship to hospitals, professional ethics, and accrediting bodies.
How Institutional Conceptual Frameworks Influence Ethical Decision Making
We wrap things up by exploring institutions and groups designed to
help ensure that hospital staff at all levels think and act ethically in
caring for patients. Accrediting bodies are oversight agencies charged
with performing accreditation of hospitals and helping to establish
standards for health care delivery. Their aim is to keep the quality of
care as high as possible and to make sure the care is delivered
ethically. Ethics committees are groups of individuals within hospitals
that meet regularly to advise staff on ethically difficult cases and to
promote an ethical institutional culture.

Management Assignment Help QUESTION 1
Describe the process of presidential disaster declarations (PDDs) and how the process of the PDD has changed over time in regard to the recovery efforts after a disaster has taken place. Discuss the dynamic that causes these changes, and describe what actions can be taken to reduce the impact of disaster recovery efforts based on these sudden changes.Examine the communication problems that inhibit effective response and recovery and cause confusion, and address how expanding logistics would be beneficial in terms of communications and disaster recovery efforts. Analyze the benefits of robust communications support for the emergency operations center (EOC).Your response must be at least 500 words in length.
Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) Review Using the internet, locate the EOP regarding COVID-19 for your state. Review the table of contents for the components of the plan, and write a report on your findings.
In your report, briefly describe the elements listed below:
components of the basic plan (e.g., purpose, concept of operations, organization and assignment of responsibilities),
appendices to the basic plan,
emergency support function annexes for the pandemic,
support annexes (e.g., volunteer organizations), and
incident annexes (e.g., rioting, civil unrest, extreme circumstances, lack of provisions regarding food or water).
Does the plan describe an Incident Command System (ICS) or emergency operations center (EOC) interface for managing operations within the EOC? If it does, is the EOC interface robust enough to be effective? Why, or why not? If this is not included in the plan, what are the benefits of including it? Support your analysis and position with evidence.
Your report should be at least three pages in length. Include a title page and references page. You must use at least two academic or reliable sources to support your report. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
InstructionsFor this activity, you will prepare a reflection paper. Reflect on the concepts you have learned during your readings pertaining to the Hospital Incident Command System (HICS). There are many times that the hospital will be involved in an emergency situation, either internally or externally, requiring the establishment of a HICS (e.g., during a pandemic or an active shooter/threat situation). In preparation for your reflection paper, consider the questions below.
What are some of the necessary steps that would need to be taken regarding the establishment of HICS and triaging any incoming patients to your hospital?
How would you communicate with local agencies that are willing to assist you during times of extreme circumstances during an active shooter/threat situation with multiple victims being transported to your location?
What do you understand completely?
What did not quite make sense?
You are not required to answer these questions in your paper, but think about them while formulating your responses to the prompts below.
The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the material you have read and to expand on it. If you are unclear about a concept, either review it in the eTextbook, or ask your professor. This is not a summary but, rather, a reflection paper is an opportunity for you to express your thoughts about the material you are studying by writing about it. Reflection writing is a great way to study because it gives you a chance to process what you have learned and increases your ability to remember it.
Use the guidelines below as you reflect on the course material and respond to the following questions in your paper.
What are your thoughts about the main topics pertaining to HICS?
Why are these topics or concepts important in the emergency services management field?
Can you apply them to a personal life situation that you may have been involved in when responding to an emergency, working with hospitals, or working with other agencies? How?
Your reflection paper should be at least two pages in length. Use your own words, and include citations and references for other articles as needed to avoid plagiarism. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
