Title: The Debate over Restricting Visitation in Healthcare Organizations during a Lockdown: Balancing Access, Risk, and Impact

The healthcare world and the world overall is now a very different place since the COVID-19 global pandemic uprooted people’s daily lives. Healthcare policy had to change on a dime in many places. For example, hospitals fearing the worst limited the visitation of family members to those loved ones struck with illness (both COVID and non-COVID). New parents had to take turns seeing their newborns. Telehealth has taken on a new leading role in many healthcare organizations because face-to-face visits were no longer acceptable due to nationwide lockdowns. Many organizations did this to mitigate risk and follow strategic national policy. Your organization has decided to take a stand to implement the same strategy. Its policy is to not allow any visitors during a lockdown.
In this class debate, you are going to be placed on a side of the new visitation policy. Your task is to argue for or against the new policy based on your last name. Those with last names beginning in A–M will argue against, and those with last names beginning in N–Z will argue for. You are tasked with presenting your case to the class on why or why not the policy should stand. Cover the following:
Consider how this has changed the way that you view healthcare access and equality.
Consider the risk to the organization.
Consider the impact of the decision.
Should there be exceptions to the policy? Why or why not?
Use data and evidence from literature to support your argument.
Remember that in healthcare administration, you are often tasked with supporting unpopular policy; it is not your job to change this policy; rather, your job is to defend the side that you are on respectfully.

For this Discussion Board, please complete the following:
Think about how policy affects every aspect of what an employee does at work.
Policy is often difficult to change. The reason is that policy refers to the laws that healthcare professionals live by in the healthcare world. Consider the role that policy plays in the day-to-day activities of a healthcare employee. In addition, consider that they often rely on data collected to ensure that the correction that they make to policy follows the evidence.

Understanding How to Impact Health Policy
Health Policy 2021: How a Democratic Win Could Change the Playing Field
For this assignment, respond to the following:
Discuss why this process must be difficult to be equitable in the form of representative government in the United States.
Explain the role of research and how it affects the policy analysis process.
Provide a specific example of how research helped develop or change a health-related policy.

Title: The Importance of Regular Policy Analysis and Updates in Healthcare Organizations

Policy gets updated annually in most healthcare organizations. This is due to several reasons. Policy is a course or principle of action adopted or proposed by a government, party, business, or individual. These courses are anything but permanent. A great deal of a healthcare administrator’s attention is devoted to the updating, implementation, and development of new departmental and organizational policy based on local, state, federal, and global standards.
Your task for this Individual Project (IP) is to write a paper covering why policies are added, changed, or updated.
Explore the following articles on healthcare policy in detail for perspective for your paper:
Health-Related Policies
What’s Ahead for Health Policy
When a Health Policy Causes Harm
Based on the information provided in the course and your own independent research, write a paper that addresses the following:
What can happen if policy is not analyzed and updated on a regular basis?
Provide an example of how a policy implemented to improve something may cause harm to individuals.
What do you see as critical changes that will need to be made in terms of health policy in the United States?
What resources can you use to develop new policies?
To provide support for your paper, properly cite at least two scholarly resources beyond your course textbook and the required/recommended learning resources for this course.

Title: Analysis and Modification of Hand Hygiene Policy Based on CDC Guidelines for Healthcare Settings

Policy analysis is a mainstay of any healthcare administrator. The ability to analyze policy from year to year and implement changes determines the behavior of your employees and the risk mitigation of your department and organization. You must be able to effectively communicate the changes needed for the policy. In this Individual Project (IP), you are going to research the current suggestions of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) using the following resources:
Policy and Strategy at CDC
Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings
Eliminating Healthcare Associated Infections
Policies and Procedures for Healthcare Organizations: A Risk Management Perspective
Then, analyze the following sample policy:
Sample Policy
Purpose: Effective hand hygiene to reduce the incidence of healthcare-associated infections
Policy: All members of the healthcare team will comply with current CDC hand hygiene guidelines.
Procedure Indications for Handwashing
Indications for Handwashing
Wash hands when hands are visibly dirty.
Wash hands using antimicrobial soap and water before eating and after using a restroom.
Handwashing may also be used for routinely decontaminating hands in the following clinical situations:
Before having direct contact with patients
After contact with inanimate objects (including medical equipment) in the immediate vicinity of the patient
After removing gloves
For this assignment, you will respond to the following prompts in essay format:
How well does this policy align with the current hand hygiene standards based on the CDC recommendations for hand hygiene in healthcare settings? Describe the areas of alignment and opportunities for improvement.
Based on your analysis, what modifications would you recommend to the policy?
According to the CDC guidelines and resources for hand hygiene and the state policy options associated with Eliminating Healthcare Associated Infections, provide a brief discussion of what you must consider with regard to training your staff and documenting the impact by measuring hand hygiene practices.
Now, review the Guidelines for Policy and Procedure Development, and write the policy based on your recommendations and what you found in the CDC guidelines. Submit the revised policy along with your paper. Any changes remitted from the CDC policy should be defended in your paper.
Be sure to cite properly and provide two scholarly resources to support your paper. (The course textbook will not be counted as a scholarly resource for this assignment.)

Title: The Role of HSAs in Addressing the Complexities of the American Health Care System

The American health care system is complex. A part of the population has access to health care through Medicare and Medicaid. Another part simply pays for care out of pocket. A substantial proportion of the population uses third-party payers to pay for care.
Payers have reacted to the rising costs of care by introducing various gatekeeper mechanisms. These have not been popular with consumers who see them as restrictive. The American population is aging and the need for care is likely to increase over the next decade.
While the earnings of health care professionals have been increasing, insurance premiums have also increased. Among hospitals, many are non-profit organizations offering substantial charity care. But for-profit and non-profit hospitals alike must show return on investment to remain viable. Providers must also factor reimbursement policies of payers into their decisions, sometimes even clinical decisions. These groups of stakeholders—patients, providers, payers, and the government—have different goals and different responses to the rising cost of care.
Based on your understanding, answer the following:
In your opinion, can HSAs be aligned to the expectations of all these groups?
Do you think HSAs can help improve health care cost, quality, and access? Why or why not?
