Managing Staff

...Managing Staff Adrienne Molett HCA/270 November 27, 2011 Axia College Managing Staff Annualizing staff is one way that health care facilities can monitor hours needed to provide care for patients. In this paper, I will be discussing how the costs are tied into staffing, the differences between annualized and scheduled-position methods. I will also talk about the reason to annualize the staff and what benefits of recording productive and nonproductive time. I will then provide a conclusion to summarize everything I have discussed. Managers in health care facilities are responsible for making sure the positions are fully covered at all times, especially if the facilities is opened 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is one way the manager can monitor how the hours are distributed. The manager is given the cost for the month and this is when the manager must tie the cost into the actual staffing. The manager must look at how many hours it will take and find out based on the actual employee on how many nonproductive days they have to be able to equally distribute the hours for the week. Managers must know the difference between the annualized method and the scheduled-position method in order to schedule the hours correctly. These methods can vary depending upon the facility, so it is vital to know which method the facility uses. The annualized method is when the manager must include the employees’ unproductive days with their productive days to know what the......

Selecting Staff

...Selecting Staff Crystal Robinson OMM618: Human Resources Management Instructor: Kathryn King-Metters October 15, 2012 As a supervisor, I believe selecting staff is a vital part of running any organization. The staff you select should be a reflection of yourself and your organization. You’d always want someone who is determined and hardworking; someone who likes to think outside the box in order to come up new and innovative ideas. Selecting the right staff to perform various duties is essential and allows for supervisors and managers to work on other areas within the company. Before I select new staff remembers, I will assess the need and perform observation of staff within the company to see which areas are needed and which areas could use assistance. Within the mental health field, there is a need for hands on supports and services. These supports and services range from assisting with medication administration to assisting with apartment or room maintenance; other supports include escorting individuals to and from medical appointments, money management and budgeting to travel training.

Staff Training

...Staff Training ------------------------------------------------- NEGLECTED ELEMENT OF THE RISK MANAGEMENT EQUATION By Melanie Lockwood Herman Nonprofit leaders are quick to rank staff training as an important goal in the workplace. During discussions with funders and other external stakeholders many managers tout the commitment of their organizations to provide inservice training to paid and volunteer personnel. Yet the commitment to training may waiver when grant dollars or fees for services are on a downhill slope. Designing Your Training The questions below were created to guide you through the process of designing training for your organization. * What are your organization's usual practices for staff training? Many organizations have on-going staff training programs. Your risk management training should be incorporated into other existing organizational training practices. * Who will do the training? Selection of instructors will influence the nature of your training program. Training might be delivered by a staff member, outside consultant, or in some cases a law enforcement officer or other government official (e.g., child protective services worker). * How will the training be delivered? Will individuals undertake training individually or in a group session? Must participants gather in a single location or can they be trained from remote locations? A growing number of organizations are choosing online and video-based training programs to ensure......

... Inter sectorial collaboration is the second principle of PHC which is the collaboration between health care professionals and professionals in the community sector that help individuals interdependently meet needs and demands. The nursing role is to act as an entry point for a client, to identify and aid in the use of resources, to provide appropriate information by the methods that are acceptable to the client (McMurray, 2007). Public participation is another important principle of PHC; the main focus is to lessen the client’s isolation and vulnerability when confronting health care. Nursing takes an empowerment approach, if people are prepared for events and circumstances with both the information needed and the community support they can become empowered to take a course of action for health. Nursing shifts from professionally driven to people driven which promotes client centered care (CNA, 2005). The use of appropriate skills and technology enhances health care resources that are available to the client (CNA, 2003). Nursing contributes to this principle by demonstrating, developing, implementing and evaluating the appropriate technology (McMurray, 2007). The final principle of PHC is health promotion, this is the process of helping clients increase control over and improve...

...Managing Staff June 16, 2013 HCA/270 Financial Matters For Health Care Professionals Managing Staff Healthcare services administration has several roles in a facility, which depends of course on the type of facility and the size of medical facility. Overall administrators supervise, plan, and organize all decisions made within the facility. This also includes taking responsibility in staff members’ duties. Managers are also in charge of finance, accounting, marketing, policy, budgeting, and most important human resources. How are costs tied to staffing? Obtaining control of labor staff cost in a medical facility is not as simple as saying the sky is blue. This task takes lots of consideration. There would always be patient volume, once again depending on what type of practice it is, staffing calculations are actions used to calculate coverage all periods of times. Since some medical staff members work all day this means shifts would change every eight to twelve hours. The method is a basic 40 hour work week. That’s saying if someone is working twelve hour shifts they would work three in half days which would add up to 40 hours a week. Or if its eight hours shift they would work five days a week. Why annualize staffing? Annualizing is important because employees work hard and deserves their time off such as vacation time, also if due to an emergency an employee......

...Managing Staff Donald Musgrave HCA/270 Financial Matters For Health Care Professionals January 29, 2014 Kevin Scheponik Managing Staff Managing staff can be very challenging, understand the cost of productive and nonproductive work may be as important as any other cost the company may have to plan. Knowing the cost tied to staffing can help a manager to see the labor burden that is present in the current budget. Having choices in using annualized or scheduled-position methods are important steps to plan for future cost and recording the benefits of both will bring the health care manager budgeting options for the organization. The cost of staffing is a burden that healthcare managers have to plan for in order to provide a profitable service delivery system. The hours that an employee works as well as the rate of pay are the main ingredients of the health care managers concerns when it relates to staffing and budgets abilities (Feldman, 2013). Defining the productive work hours from the nonproductive work hours is not a difficult task; it is the ability to understand how nonproductive hours need to accounted for within the budgeting process. The differences that separate the annualized method and the scheduled-position method for a healthcare manager start with an understanding of how to stabilize the cost of labor within the organization. With the annualized method, a manager can plan for the cost of each employee concerning his or her hourly salaries, vacation...

...Brittany Witte Professor Weller ENG W131 21 November 2010 Child Support: Then and Now What is child support? According to dictionary.com, child support is defined as payment made for the support of the children of divorced or separated parents while the children are minors or until they reach an age set by the separation agreement or in a court order (Dictionary.com). This argument will show the changes in child support over the last fifty years, along with statistics that show how many people are in need of child support. The research will also show what the current child support laws and enforcement regulations are at present day. Child support started as far back as 1935, with a program that provided Aid to Families with Dependent Children, also known as the AFDC, this program would help families that met the established federal need requirements, receive monthly minimum payments from the state. One requirement that would qualify a family to receive a monthly payment would be if a child was not being adequately supported by a parent that was not around, and not paying support (Morgan). Basically, these benefits that the families were receiving from the government were a substitute for child support. This was the start of child support laws and enforcement. It was not until 1974, that there were more changes to child support laws. At this time, child support was to be shifted from the money coming out of the taxpayers’ pockets to making the absent parent being the......

Gillian Anderson, “…. the best relationships – the ones that last – are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship….’ C. Donald Miller, ”When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” Relationships can be categorized into formal, informal and professional.

An informal relationship does not operate with strict rules of doing things and behaving. It accommodates respect for the feelings of others.
