Healthcare Admission Discussion Questions
!!!! PLEASE READ ABOUT THE CHOSEN HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION BEFORE COMPLETING ASSIGNMENT !!!!!
I selected hypertension and diabetes healthcare centre since hypertension and diabetes prevalence has continued to rise over the decades, which has generated worry and fear among the people and healthcare providers. Hypertension in diabetes is a contemporary problem that provokes diabetic macro and microvascular crises which is why I selected the topic to ensure patients with hypertension and diabetes go for frequent follow-ups in the respective healthcare centers. The name of my healthcare organization will be named “Care for All Center”
Overview of the Healthcare Center
The healthcare’s main goals and objectives include identifying victims with diabetes and hypertension and giving them appropriate care and resources needed conveniently. It will help decrease hospital admissions and frequent visits to the emergency room for such healthcare problems. The healthcare center utilizes a comprehensive, coordinated and compassionate team strategy to center on the individual needs of the patient’s needs, both social and medical needs. The services offered include Medicare care, patient’s awareness on managing medical interventions and coping mechanism for chronic illnesses.
Other services will include nutrition counselling, foot, skin and eye care, including data concerning community resources and follow-up care to ensure better clinical services are offered. The healthcare center has a substantial supporting team such as physicians, certified nurses, nurse practitioners, diabetes specialists, social workers, case managers, transition personnel, including the nutritionists. The whole employees in the healthcare center collaborate harmoniously to achieve the shared goals and objective of the healthcare center. They provide the necessary resources that the patients’ needs to control their diabetes and hypertension health conditions better.
How the Heartcare will meet a Diverse population needs
The healthcare’s location is situated where most community members will have access to much ease. The site will make it easy to discharge necessary services to the patients. The healthcare center will dedicate its mission to serve the poor and those underprivileged to get medical and social care with cost-effective offers. The services will be rendered to all people of all ages who have been diagnosed with diabetes and hypertension disorders without insurance covers and underinsured. The community people will be made aware of the risk factors associated with the diseases such as genetic triggers, diet, obesity, lack of physical activities, which all contribute a lot to the development of hypertension and diabetes (De Boer et al., 2017).
