Case Study (95 points possible)
Sandra Li is a 45 year old Radiation Therapy technician went to her doctor’s office stating she saw blood in her stool twice this week and thinks she has hemorrhoids. She also complains of fatigue and 10 weight loss in the last 3 months because she just didn’t feel like eating. Even after the weight loss, she is still 35 pounds over her ideal weight for her height.

Selected Data Obtained From Nursing Assessment She is a second generation Japanese American Worked for 8 years preparing the radioisotopes for injection during CT scans before she moved to the Radiation Therapy department. She was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes which is being controlled with oral medications. She states she understands the need for exercise, both to lose weight and control her blood sugar. However, she feels too tired after work and admits both she and her husband are “couch potatoes.” She asked with a grin, “Does playing video games count as playing a sport?” Denies smoking, but her husband smokes 2 packs per day Much…...

...Many pathogenic bacteria do not grow well on solid culture medium, making identification by traditional means difficult. (Why?) Even poorly growing bacterial cultures, however, can be identified with the methods used in this lab. In this lab, you will act as a pathologist or perhaps a pathology lab technician at a well-equipped research hospital. Your task is to identify a bacterial sample received from a clinician. Assuming that you have managed to grow bacterial colonies on a solid medium culture dish, the first step is to pick up a single colony and drop it into a microcentrifuge tube. The process of extracting bacterial DNA consists of dissolving the cell wall with a digestive buffer (in the white-capped bottle) available as a commercial kit. The buffer contains proteolytic enzymes that "eat" the cell wall. This step may take several hours. Since we will be using other enzymes in the next step, we need to get rid of the proteolytic enzymes before we can proceed. The enzymes are denatured by heating the sample in a water bath at 100°C. Next, the cellular debris is spun down in the centrifuge and appears as a solid deposit (pellet) at the bottom of the tube. The DNA is contained in the supernatant (the liquid), which is then transferred to the PCR tube. Why / Back to Part 1Note: Limitations of the traditional methods of identification Over the years, a battery of tests has been developed to categorize and identify bacteria. Tests include staining......

...Photosynthesis is the process by which plant cells capture and process the suns energy to make this energy available to all living things (Audesirk T, Audesirk G, Byers G, 2008). Photosynthesis controls all tropic chains and food on Earth. The photosynthesis process is described by the following equation: 6CO2 + 6H2O + Light Energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2. This equation means carbon dioxide from the air and water combine in the presence of sunlight to form sugars: oxygen is released as a by-product of this reaction (Wessels & Hopson, n.d.). The first step in Photosynthesis is the “light reaction”. This is when the electromagnetic energy of sunlight is converted into the chlorophyll (the pigment that absorbs the sunlight) containing cells of photosynthetic organisms (Audesirk T, Audesirk G, Byers G, 2008). Chlorophyll is packed into stacks of membranes called grana where the sunlight is absorbed. The sunlight is then converted into chemical energy or Oxygen. This is then converted into sugars or glycolysis. If oxygen is present when the glycolysis process is complete, a type of cellular respiration called aerobic respiration is created. During the aerobic respiration a process called TCA is administered. The TCA cycle releases energy store in pyruvate. This energy is called ATP, which is the energy source that is used for nearly every task in the human body and other organisms. Anaerobic respiration is the absence of oxygen. Anaerobic respiration begins with the same...

Culture and Case Study I

...Change and Culture Case Study I In a hierarchical organization structure there is a top, middle and a bottom. Middle management sits in the middle of this type or organizing scheme. Middle managers are generally supervisors. Sometimes those that head up departments or units of a business can be considered middle management depending on how the business is structured. Most middle management implements or executes the plans and policies created by upper management (Burke, 2013). Middle managers have to ensure that all of the employees that work underneath them are following the business plans that have been laid out and that they are getting their work done on time. It is important that middle managers are able to communicate clearly and effectively with their staff whether it is verbal or written communication. Case Study Background In this case study the scenario is a middle manager within the health care organization has merged with a previous competitor. Up until now, employees saw the competition as an enemy that provided poor quality of care to their patients. The new corporation, however, has in place several inpatient and outpatient service that our health care organization does not. We will be discussing what impact the sale will have on the culture of the new combined health care organizations, as a middle manager what can be done to make sure that the combined staff work together in providing quality of care rather than seeing it as a competition and describing...

Swanson initially blaming staff members for the error puts him down as moral manager, who is responsible for communicating ethics and values and is a role model. The error also exposes his insensitivity towards subordinates for his personal gain .When press investigated and questioned more about the incident; he said the whole thing was an innocent mix-up. Ethical values were preached however not followed by Swanson as per the incident. 3, In Case 7, Swanson spoke out about people with “situational value system.”Has he now engaged in hypocritical behavior? People who can turn the charm on and off depending on the status of the person they are interacting with are categorized to situational values rule. People with situational values have situational ethics, and those are the people to be avoided. Swanson states this rule never fails in term of helping to assess someone’s character, holds good in his case. Swanson is part of situational values system and a pretender. He was pretending to be corporate citizen and with his exposure to Plagiarism he blamed the staff, a rude act towards subordinate and later rubbed it off as innocent mix-up.

...Case Study 2 A.O. is an 89-year-old woman with a long history of systolic heart failure secondary to a large left ventricular infarct when she was in her 70s. She had poor activity tolerance and required assistance with activities of daily living. Even minimal activity was associated with moderately severe dyspnea and exertional chest pain, which was relieved by rest. A.O. also exhibited marked pedal edema bilaterally. She is being treated with digitalis, furosemide (Lasix), KCl, and sublingual nitroglycerin. Discussion Questions:  1. Which type of heart failure (left or right sided) is usually associated with dyspnea? What other clinical findings are likely to be present with left-sided heart failure? The type of heart failure usually associated with dyspnea is left-sided. Other clinical findings likely to be present with left-sided heart failure are cardiomegaly and pulmonary congestion such as orthopnea or basilar crackles. There would also be an increased heart rate and S3 heart sound while listening with a stethoscope. 2. What compensatory mechanisms are likely to be operative in A.O. to enhance cardiac output? The following compensatory mechanisms are likely to be operative to enhance cardiac output: myocardial hypertrophy due to prolonged stretch on the myocardium; baroreceptors will detect a low blood pressure and carbon monoxide levels, which would excite the sympathetic system due to an increased heart rate. During this mechanism the beta receptors will......

...Case Study 1: The Union’s Demand for Recognition and Bargaining Rights Sean Kail Columbia Southern University This case study is from 1975 and regards a union trying to recruits new members from an apartment building and townhouse complex. There are 11 employees that work for the Thomas Hall the property manager, in which he did not want involved in any union matters so he passed the burden onto the vice president Carl Alton. The maintenance supervisor got wind of the union trying to recruit the employees and started asking questions. Melton called and confronts multiple employees about the alleged union meetings. Melton was released by the company 15 days after the alleged phone calls and questionings. The union alleged the company violated Section 8(a)(1) of the LMRA, in which they repeatedly interrogated employees. Melton did call and question multiple employees when he got wind of the union; he was definitely in violation of the LMRA, if such were true. The company claimed that they were unaware of Melton questioning the employees and since he was let go the union can not use his actions against them. Also with the election not being held for another 36 days after Melton was let go his actions had no influence on the employee’s decisions. Melton did state “You are either on my side of the fence or your side of the fence… You always had is good. I have given you… you got a nice job, you got an apartment… this is your last chance.” (Ivancevich J. p503). ......

How should Pack-iTS be positioned against the competition? Pack-iTS should position themselves against the competition by targeting the three key consumers, school parents and children. They should target the parents by illustrating the benefits of Pack-iTS pre made lunches. One of the main concerns that parents had was not being able to spend more time with their kids while trying to juggle a work and home life.  So Pack-iTS should lead with how using their service  will save parents time instead of  buying and preparing school lunches for their children. Giving them more time to spend with their kids and not having to stress about what their kids are going to eat. Pack-iTS should also stress the importance of nutrition to the parents and that pack-its is committed to making healthy meals for their kids. Pack-its only real competition is the brand name lunches offered by Kraft and Schneider’s, but these choices are less healthy options for children. They other competition would be the hot lunches that were offered by local businesses. In this case......

...the Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells by comparing their structure and function: It will talk about the similar components they have and their function of the two cells (prokaryotic and Eukaryotic) and then it will talk about the different components and their function in the cell. It will relate the structure to function in two specialised eukaryotic cells and the structure of the cell membrane to its function of movement of substances into and out of the cell. Regarding to the cell theory all living things are made of cells and all organisms may be classified as prokaryotes (before nucleus) or eukaryotes (true nucleus). Prokaryotes was developed first, they are small (size 1 to 10um) and they consist of one cell (unicellular) and it has no nucleus but instead it as a nucleoid which contains the genome (DNA of the cell). (Boundless 2015) (Look figure1) Eukaryotes come from prokaryotic cells and they are large (size 10 to 100um), highly structured, they consist of many cells (multicellular), has a nucleus which is the brain of the cell and it is enclosed in a nuclear envelope. The prokaryotic and Eukaryotes both have a Cell Membrane, Ribosomes, Cell Wall (in Eukaryotic it is present only in Animals) and Cytoplasm. The cell membrane is a thin flexible bilayer round the outside of all cells and it's made by phospholipids and proteins. Its function is to separate the contents of the cells from the outside environment. (AQA Biology 2012) The Cell Wall is composed of......
