  • The Farnsworth Invention

    Though The Farnsworth Invention is based on historical events, the play is not historically accurate. In fact, the truth of the story is intentionally altered. According to the National Public Library, the play “shows Farnsworth as being defeated legally by Sarnoff, and then spending his life in obscurity. In realty Farnsworth won the lawsuit, later received a $1 million payment from RCA (David Sarnoff’s Company) for the purchase of his TV patents, and went on to have an illustrious career in technological research”. When asked why Sorkin deviated from the truth, he responds “There were many lawsuits, appeals and counter-suits that covered years. Farnsworth won some of them and lost some of them. The final result, certainly in the context of the play I’d written, was a loss. Farnsworth died, as Sarnoff says at the end, “drunk, broke, and in obscurity” and whether or not it was the result of corporate espionage or theft was the subject of the play.” So why would Arron Sorkin sway away from history in his story? The truth wasn’t dramatic enough. It to straight forward to have Farnsworth win easy. In other pieces of literature…

  • Interpersonal Communication Questionnaire

    What were your overall results for this questionnaire? After taking this questionnaire and basing it off my sister and mom I found that with my sister I have an equal low/high tendency to pursue and a low tendency to withdraw with my mom I found that I have a low tendency to pursue and a low tendency to withdraw.

  • Q & A Case Study: The World Health Organization

    Introduction. Health care organizations are capitalizing on the root cause analysis (RCA) route to determine the focal cause of adverse events within their facilities. First developed as a tool used in the engineering sector, RCAs have been extended to health care in many ways and have proved to be highly effective in improving facility performance and safety. This paper provides a more in-depth look into RCAs while also showing one particular case study. RCA defined. The World Health…

  • Compressive Strength Of Concrete In Radonjanin, Marinkovic And Al Malte

    lightweight concrete produced, the possible applications are not prefabricated structural elements (such as panels and the sealing blocks), run floors, slabs filling, among others. The use of lightweight concrete in the production of prefabricated elements can be considered advantageous if taken into account the lower labor cost for handling, transport and assembly of the parts. Graph 7: Aggressive Compression Strength Table 3: Compressive Strength A (0% RCA) Graph 8: Compressive…

  • Root Cause Analysis Failure

    Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) and root cause analysis (RCA) are both tools used in healthcare to identify and reduce risks to patients. FMEA proactively identifies risks while RCA identifies the cause after an event has occurred. FMEAs were originally used in the engineering industry during new product design (Mulligan & Nechodom, 2008, p. 662) and over time were adopted into healthcare to reduce potential harm to patients. “FMEA involves a multidisciplinary team mapping out a…

  • Root Cause Analysis

    Each of the falls process was recorded immediately and reported during the next meeting which are graphically represented including all the possible links that influence the incidents. Moreover, the author developed a casual tree to clarify the possible reasons that may result in falls and reactive barriers were then developed. Also, several improvement measures were adopted during meetings to the see the notable change in the number of patient falls and to enhance the patient safety measures.…

  • John Hopkins Quality Improvement Report

    It also can help to identify need for changes to policies and procedures, and to serve as a basis to suggest system changes, including improving communication of risk. It is one of the most widely used retrospective methods for detecting safety hazards. The goal of RCA, is to prevent future harm by eliminating the latent errors that so often underlie adverse events. The primary aim of RCA is to identify the factors that resulted in the nature, the magnitude, the location, and the timing of the…
