SOCS 325 Week 1 Discussion: Environmental Racism and Justice

Document Content and Description Below

SOCS 325 Week 1 Discussion Question: Environmental Racism & Justice Compare & contrast, providing examples of each, the constructs of environmental racism & environmental justice. A system that... objects poverty stricken communities of certain ethnic backgrounds to harmful corporate worksites is environmental racism. Without political or economic influence these communities are targeted because they are powerless without a voice on the decisions to locate worksites & powerless after the fact when it comes to defending themselves. Despite feeling helpless, community members in affected areas are exposed to industrial pollution causing massive effects to their overall health. The distinction is that because of the area code you might happen to live in, all those dangerous ingredients used in a factory that was built with no opposition adjacent to the neighborhoodcould be leaking lead, mercury, asbestos etcetera into the water supply causing anything from pre- mature deaths to developmental learning disabilities in the children that are born, all because of what zip code you happen to live in. Neighborhoods with environmental racism like this required environmental justice but in recent years due to controversial reports causing debate on the issue in the United States has seen political change from movements of local activist making environmental racism & justicea central civil rights issue. , I agree with you both regarding, "if it's not documented, it's not done". I hear this phrase all of the time, especially when an error or event has occurred. I was not surprised to read it in our lesson this week. It has also become particularly important for hospital reimbursement. It's illegal to charge a patient for care that was not provided. I can see how charting by exception might not capture the care that is really provided. At my facility, everything is audited. Our DQM is constantly educating our staff anytime their is a potential or actual deficit in our documentation. This helps tremendously to assist in to taking steps to do things the right way. There is a lot to know when it comes to CMS reimbursement. Many regulations are changing & becoming stricter. Hospitals & medical facilities receiving reimbursement is what keeps healthcare in motion. According to Schooler (2014), “As of April 2014, CMS reports that 90% of eligible hospitals (including critical access facilities) have received some level of incentive payment totaling more than $14 billion” (p. 285). If hospital reimbursement deceases everyone in healthcare will be affected. One aspect of reimbursement includes nursing documentation. Nurses are more responsible for improving their documentation.
