live in an urban town named Houma in Louisiana We have two local hospitals here One is nonprofit and the other is forprofit Charbert Medical Center is the town s nonprofit hospital This is where most people without insurance go for medical attention They charge according to one s income They have most of the same services our local forprofit hospital has They also have small clinics there for people to go to for nonemergency care Terrebonne General Medical Center is the local forprofit hospital This is where people who have some form of insurance go for medical attention They have numerous services there for patients They have everything from a Women s Center for pregnant women to a Cancer Center for people who are diagnosed with cancer Unlike Charbert they do not have the clinics at Terrebonne General for non emergency needs Most of the citizens of Houma do go to Charbert for medical attention It is much cheaper for people who have no insurance There is a long wait to see a doctor but the same thing occurs at Terrebonne General so to some it is worth it We do not have a local government hospital here in Houma The closet one is in New Orleans Louisiana The Veteran hospital was damaged during hurricane Katrina and is still being repaired They are talking about getting it up and running soon though There is one in Shreveport that is still functional though These hospitals are for veterans only They treat them for disabilities that happen during the war and also veterans who do not have insurance All of the hospitals have their pros and cons so it is the individual s preference on which one they want to seek medical attention from Staff and Administration 1 Staff and Administration Axia College of University of Phoenix Staff and Administration 2 Medical staff and hospital administration are the two main divisions in a hospital Each one has a different role in the running of a hospital There are some departments and staff members that may be more important than others Doctors and nurses are the most important roles on the medical staff A doctor is essential for any hospital to run This is the person all patients come to see A doctor is responsible for evaluation of the patient s illness or injury providing the appropriate diagnosis and providing the needed treatment for the diagnosis The doctor is also responsible for the medical staff that works beneath him or her He or she must make sure the medical staff is doing their job and following the rules Without a doctor hospitals may not be run correctly and there would be no reason to seek medical attention there Nurses are also extremely important to the running of a hospital They care for the patients the entire time they are at the hospital Nurses have different responsibilities depending on the department they work in Regardless of their department they are what one would call the main caregivers of a hospital They are there emotionally and physically for all the patients From something as simple as a person to talk with to something as important as the medicine needed for the patient s treatment nurses provide all types of services Without nurses a doctor s job would be much more hectic because the doctor would be responsible for administering all treatments Human resource director and the medical billing manager are the most important roles in hospital administration The human resource director is essential for any hospital to be functional He or she is responsible for every aspect of employment This is where it all begins Staff and Administration 3 and even ends The human resource director is who hires and fires all employees They also do all the training after hiring Without the HR director the hospital would not have trained employees or employees at all Human resources even deals with the benefits that employees receive Things like insurance 401K sick pay and holiday pay The human resource director is who employees should go to for anything they need Heathfield 2009 The medical billing manager is also an important role for a hospital He or she is responsible for all billing for the hospital Without this person the hospital would not get paid They send bills to insurance companies and patients for procedures administered while at the hospital The billing manager can also explain insurance benefits to patients He or she deals with insurance companies daily Medical Bill and Coding Net 20032007 Both of these administrative departments are essential roles in the everyday running of a hospital Every hospital is run about the same way All have different departments that have their own specific function No matter what the function is they all have to work together to make a hospital run smoothly Some may be more essential for the everyday running of a hospital but all are needed for the overall survival of the hospital References Heathfield S 2009 Sample Human Resources Director Job
