Begin by writing down EVERYTHING you EAT and DRINK (anything you put in your mouth) for a 24-hour period. It doesn’t matter if you start in the middle of the day…. just make sure you cover 24 hours. It would be helpful to write down the time of day that you are eating or drinking. Try to pick a time span that is your most ‘normal’ eating/drinking pattern (weekends may look different that the weekdays).
REMEMBER to include the quantity and amounts (both liquid and dry measurements). Example – 1 pretzel (stick), size; ounces. Portion sizes and amounts are important for this exercise. You will need to look up SERVING SIZE or each food/liquid of your intake to determine the number of servings you have taken in; to determine a nutritional analysis. You can find the information of serving size on the packaging OR…. look up what would constitute a serving size of that food. Do not forget to record liquid intake (water, coffee, etc) for the day in ounces.
EXAMPLES – Go to MyPLATE.gov to assist with proper serving sizes of specific foods. Also note textbook, pages 283 to 287 or My Plate guidelines too included below. Ex -a serving size = 1 cup is the size of a baseball, ½ cup is the size of a lightbulb, 3 ounces (meat) is the size of a deck of car. ETC. There are good apps that can help you determine what a serving size, calories and to monitor for weight management such as: Lose it – Calorie Counter, Fitness Pal, Calorie Counter [supanova_question]
and Business Process Flow Charting Practice
This activity consists of two problems. *** I have completed the flow chart*** see excel
Gary Seitz is director of procurement for the Forest Medical Center in Oak Park, Illinois. His medical center recently purchased more than 300 new side tables for the patient rooms from Quick-and-Cheap Furniture. His team, however, is not happy with the paint quality of these tables. They feel the firm providing the tables was rushed to get the order out and did not do a great job.
They have examined each of the 312 tables that they have received so far and found the following defects, listed in alphabetical order:
Problem Number of Occurrences
Dirt in paint 65
Orange peel 12
Sad looking 43
Sealer under 8
Thin paint 31
Use Excel to:
Create a Pareto Chart for this situation.
Create and complete a table for this situation using the following headers:
List the most frequently occurring problem first in the table, then the next more frequently occurring problem second in the table, and so forth.
In a Word document:
Draw two conclusions about the quality of the patient tables that Quick Furniture has shipped to the Forest Medical Center.
Submit both your Word and Excel files.
Ted Short, manager of procurement at the Lake Luna Medical Center (LLMC), is starting a process to examine at the general process that is followed at his center for procurement of medical supplies at his facility. His first step is to develop a flowchart for the current process that employees at his center follow. He has asked you to draw that flowchart for him and make any obvious changes to shorten the process.
Here are the key steps that are followed:
The LLMC employee fills out a paper requisition and sends that to his department head for approval.
The department secretary first examines the requisition to see if all needed information is present. If it is, then she sends to the department head for approval. If not, she returns to the employee for any needed corrections. The employee then returns the requisition to the department secretary for review again.
Requisitions with the correct information are sent to the department head.
The department head reviews the item to determine if the material requested seems appropriate. He may contact his employee to discuss any questions he might have.
If he feels it is inappropriate, then he rejects the request and sends it back to the employee.
If he feels it is appropriate, then he checks the budget to see if there are sufficient monies in the budget to pay for this. If there are not, then he rejects the request and sends it back to the employee. If there are sufficient funds, then he approves them.
If the requisition is approved, then the department secretary sends the requisition to a member of the LLMC Procurement Team.
The LLMC procurement specialist checks to see if the suggested vendor on the requisition is on the approved vendor list (AVL).
If not, he sends the request back to the department secretary and the process starts all over if the LLMC employee wants to continue to pursue it. If the employee does not, then the requisition is terminated.
If the vendor is on the AVL, the LLMC procurement specialist checks to see if a quote is required, either based on the type of equipment and material required or on the amount of the purchase.
If no quote is required, the procurement specialist transmits the PO to the vendor for execution.
If a quote is required, then the specialist contacts the vendor and asks for a quote. If the quote is satisfactory based on past purchases of such items, the specialist approves the quote and places the order.
If the quote is too high, the specialist contacts the LLMC employee and asks for another vendor to check. The procurement specialist then checks the second vendor. Usually, a procurement specialist will have to check only two vendors at most.
If the specialist cannot find a vendor with it suitable price after two tries, then the PO is cancelled.
When the specialist finds a vendor who submits a suitable quote, the transmits the PO to the vendor for execution by US postal service or by telephone.
The procurement specialist then logs the transaction into the financial system.
The procurement specialist then forwards the request to the Accounts Payable Department for payment when the receipt of the materials and equipment ordered, if acknowledged.
Use Microsoft Word to complete the following:
Develop a flowchart for this process.
Suggest three improvements, based on total quality management, that Ted Short can use to make the current process more efficient.[supanova_question]

4-6 page evidence-based patient-centered care report on the patient scenario presented in the Evidence-Based Health Evaluation and Application media piece. Base your report on the information provided by the traumatic brain injury expert from the population health improvement initiative (PHII) described in the media activity and your own evidence-based research on this population health issue.
In this assessment, you will apply evidence-based practice in patient-centered care and population health improvement contexts. You will be challenged to think critically, evaluate what the evidence suggests is an appropriate approach for a personalized patient care plan, and determine which aspects of the approach could be applied to similar situations and patients. I have attached all instruction. Please no Plagiarism and must be APA format.[supanova_question]
