Question #1
The purpose of developing and maintaining a succession management process is to have a safety net for the company to fall back on, in situations similar to the one faced by Stonewall Industries. The succession management process is cultivated by the HR department and consists of qualified, trained candidates seeking a position within the company. The degree to which the risk management of the succession pool embodies is determined by the sufficient funds used to maintain it. Since the talent is being drawn from groups of individuals who are being sent on call in a moment’s notice, monetary compensation is expected. The overall ideal of having a succession management system in place is to enable a faster response to the impending need for an executive staff member.

Benefits of implementing a succession management process are:
1. Improve internal candidate pools.
2. Assure business continuity.
3. Reduce skill gaps.
4. Retain employees.
5. Help individuals realize their career plans within the organization.
6. Develop leaders more quickly.
7. Encourage the advancement of diverse groups.
8. Improve employees’ ability to respond to changing environmental demands.
Question #2
Creation of elite corps of employees: * Managers fear that publicly identifying those who will be promoted, a cadre of “crown princes” will be created. * They may coast through their job, they know that their contributions have already been recognized and the reward is in the near future. * The organization as well may not invest sufficiently in the further development of these promotable employees – increasing the risk that their competencies and motivation will decline. * A big problem also occurs, when a recognized individual does not actually get promoted. At that point, they feel humiliated – de-motivated, they will either leave the organization or…...

...out of touch with nature, and as a result hundreds of millions of people are rapidly aging, falling apart and dying long before their time. Almost everyone in the modern world has some kind of physical problem now. Many have silly diseases for no other reason than they are either too lazy or they just don't know any better. The motto is "I can do what I want, and if something happens, a doctor can fix it". Right? Wrong. Doctor's don't fix. They hide symptoms. They drug you up so you don't feel anything. They cut out infected body parts and give you poisons to try and kill things. If you break a bone or cut off a finger- they put the bones and finger back in place and hope your body will heal it. Doctors don't heal you- your BODY does the healing. Ask a doctor what caused a disease and they probably won't have a clue. If you had a disease, wouldn't you want to know what caused it so you could stop doing it and make sure it didn't happen again? The irony of the whole thing is we are "too busy" being in a hurry to be healthy or happy. We are so worried and concerned about racing the clock to get things done, that we are actually cutting our lives in half. We're trying to be efficient and save time, but in reality we are doing the opposite. If someone told you you would live twice as long, wouldn't you start to take things a little easier ? Wouldn't you take a little time to become healthier? Well that's exactly the case. The body you have been given is designed to live to at......

Healing Hospital

...Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm Bradley Smith Grand Canyon University: HLT-302 Due: 03/17/13 Healing hospitals are currently on the decline in health care America. Most health care providers have lost the true meaning of healing their patients holistically; both physically and spiritually. If healing hospitals started to come back, I believe that not only will the physical care of a patient increase. But patients will be happier and feel spiritually healed also. If healing hospitals were to make a comeback, hospitals and doctor’s offices would not seem so cold and unwelcoming to the patients. Even though there are challenges in creating a healing hospital, they are still a necessary component in the health care system for patients to feel spiritually healed when they leave. Components of a Healing Hospital Related to Spirituality Laurie Eberst, the president and CEO of Mercy Gilbert Medical Center describes a true healing hospital to, “include three key components: A healing physical environment, the integration of work design and technology, and a culture of radical loving care.” (Eberst, 2008). A Healing and Physical Environment When patients and their families enter the hospital, they are all under a lot of stress due to the illness of the patient. When a hospital provides aesthetically pleasing waiting rooms and doctor’s offices, it helps the patients and their families cope with that stress they are having. It is also important for a healing......

...Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm Grand Canyon University HLT - 310V May 3, 2013 Healing Hospital: A Daring Paradigm As nurses we are known to be hardworking, caring, compassionate and kind individuals who carry around big hearts on our sleeves. In addition, in today’s society we are also being exposed more to the spiritual aspects of each individual patient that we care for on a day to day basis. In turn, we must open up our minds and respect the patient’s spirituality, no matter what it might be, to understand that this could be their main way of coping and part of the healing process for them. We must also understand that it is “not just random, thoughtful gestures but rather a continuous chain of loving care—kindness and skill from every caregiver (including leaders) to every patient and to one another” (Ananth, 2009). Concepts of a Healing Hospital There are several concepts that must be understood as part of a Healing Hospital in which each hospital has their own mission, vision and statement. These aspects are created to let the public be aware of what they can expect from the hospital as a whole. As stated by St. Joseph’s hospital (2013), their mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality of life of people in the communities we serve. In addition to their mission statement, their components include dignity, service,......

Healing hospitals have developed a paradigm to address spiritual concerns, which studies have shown to significantly improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. A healing hospital provides health care to patients through application of a healing model with three components that, most importantly, ensure that the patient is surrounded by love. According to Chapman (2007), hospitals have adapted a formal approach to healing consisting of three separate components: the integration of technology, a physical facility design that promotes healing, and a culture of radical love and care. Spiritual healing is not considered to be of traditional pharmacotherapy approach, therefore, the barriers in creating this environment in today’s hospitals are many. The purpose of this paper is to explore these three areas and their relationships, as wells as, barriers to the holistic healing of mind, body, and soul. Relationship to Spirituality It is documented by Allen and Crouch (2005), that spirituality as a subject and the need to address patients’ spiritual......

... Healing Hospitals: A Daring Paradigm Tiffany Johnson Grand Canyon University HLT-310V April 13, 2014 When it comes to the issue of spirituality and healing hospitals, the healthcare providers in hospitals must consider the emotional side. “The view that people do not change into one dimensional beings when they become patients and their emotional needs increase when the body is in a weak constitution. Chapman gives a model in which “Total Loving Care equals Higher Standard. In this view, there is the patient there is the disease and there is the humanity shown by the health care provider. Humanity is the healthcare providers feeling about the disease (Chapman, 2007).” Healing hospitals in the United States are becoming more of the norm and expected level of care offered by health care facilities and hospitals throughout the country. The Baptist Healing Trust determines the designation of the top healing hospitals. “The mission of the Baptist Healing Trust, a private grant making foundation, is the sacred work of fostering healing and wholeness for vulnerable populations through strategic investing, philanthropy, and advocacy (healingtrust.org.)” Parrish Medical Center located in central Florida has ranked number one in healing hospital for three years in a row as of 2008. The vision of Parrish Medical Center is: healing experiences for everyone, all the time. In a world dominated by technology, so sophisticated that it is possible to send astronauts into space.

...Healing Hospitals: A Daring Paradigm Anna Hernandez Grand Canyon University Spirituality in Health Care HLT-310V Richard Hudock July 27, 2014 Healing Hospitals: A Daring Paradigm Spirituality and religions, effects on health has become an increasing interest to scientist since the 1980’s. According to Smith (2006), spirituality has gained such a momentum that there are multiple articles and several textbooks on spirituality since the year of 1989. The consensus is developing that spirituality and religion are closely related to physical and psychological health and that spirituality and health are an important focus in nursing research (Smith, 2006). Spirituality, however, has many definitions. The majority accord that, it is defined as the manner by which persons seek meaning in their lives and experience transcendence-connectedness to that which is beyond the self (Smith, 2006, p. 41). Spirituality has two dimensions and is a highly complex concept. There are two components of spirituality that are generally described. The vertical, which describes the transcendent, is the connection between a patients (inner body) or something outside such as, a higher power or the divine (Smith, 2006). The horizontal component relates to the connection between persons. This consists of individual and social support that are, set in, the spiritual context by religious setting and spiritual relationships (Smith, 2006).

Healing Hospital

...According to medical dictionary, “spiritual healing is the use of spiritual practices, such as prayer, for the purpose of affecting a cure of or an improvement in an illness” (medical dictionary, 2011). Spiritual healings are commonly practiced, and now are greatly encouraged. However, today we have “healing hospitals” that follow the practices of spiritual healing. Erie Chapman and the Baptist Healing Trust envisioned a spiritual healing environment that focused on the healing of mind, body and spirit of patients. They believe that the healing hospital would also be beneficial for hospital employees by creating a productive work environment that supports the morals of employees. Spirituality can be anything in believing in a higher power that is immaterial or in other words, “not of this earth”. Spirituality also means a power that is beyond our five senses: sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste. Spirituality is also looked upon as a powerful component in healing. It is said that in the scriptures such as Peter 1, John and the Book of Psalms support the healing hospital paradigm since it presents an immaterial power that can heal all who believe in the higher power. This Higher power can heal all diseases, emotional distresses, and other disorders. However, the healing hospital paradigms not only care for the illness or disease of a patient but they also care for the emotional needs of the patients. I think that is why Healing Hospitals are so successful and popular. They......

...This paper describes the components of a healing hospital and their relationship to spirituality. I will also state the challenges of creating a healing environment in light of the barriers and complexities of the hospital environment. Lastly I will include biblical aspects that I believe support the concept of a healing hospital. First off, I feel components of a healing hospital are compassion, safety, trust, respect, support and creating positive outcomes in people’s lives and health. “A Healing Hospital is a concept where a continuous chain of loving care is carried throughout the organization with kindness and skill from every caregiver (including leaders) to every patient and to one another” (Chapman, 2003, p. 10). The workers need to envelope the spirit and integrate compassion, real love, and selflessness when they are with each individual patient as well as with their co-workers. Caring needs not only be from staff to patients, but also between staff members themselves and so forth. As far as spirituality goes in a healing hospital it begins with the top dog and continues down to upper management, then middle management, then lower management, and down to employees. To give patient care you must possess passion for each patient and their care. To me passion for patient care is having passion for that person fully from their mind, body, and spirit. To also help provide any patient needs whether it be spiritual, physical, or emotional. It is always important to......

Real Healing The Healing Paradigm Everything I know about medicine, I learned from my patients. Posted Feb 12, 2011 SHARE TWEET EMAIL MORE Recently, I have been thinking about what it means to heal and how that's different from being cured. The definitions aren't that different apparently. Heal is defined as: To restore to health or soundness; cure. To set right; repair: To restore (a person) to spiritual wholeness. v.intr. To become whole and sound; return to health. Cure is defined as: Restoration of health; recovery from disease. A method or course of medical treatment used to restore health. An agent, such as a drug, that restores health; a remedy. To become whole and sound, to restore to health is, I believe, what we as health care providers strive for for our patients. What has often surprised me is how little becoming whole and sound looks like what I would have expected when I graduated from medical school or was new in practice. What I thought I was to do as a doctor was to cure disease. Sometimes, in my experience, disease can be cured, but the person is not returned to wholeness. Take for example a patient who has been diagnosed with cancer. Even in the event that they are cured of the cancer, their relationships with family or friends may remain sick, not whole. I would have done my job or what I......

In addition, barriers to the Healing Hospital paradigm will be discussed along with Biblical scripture that supports compassion in the health care system. The healing hospital paradigm it focuses on the removal of stress and other health risks in the hospital environment for both patients and visitors. . The healing hospital paradigm it involves in healing the whole client (Young & Koopsen, 2006, p. 4) instead of just curing the disease. This emerges from the paradigm’s focuses on healing beyond the body physical: it aims to enhance the overall well being by addressing the patient’s and their families’ cognitive, emotional and spiritual concerns (Milstein, 2005).

Healing Hospital

...The Healing Hospital Paradigm
The inception of the “Healing Hospital” is not new. Healing hospitals in various forms have been around throughout history. As hospitals were slowly taken over by religious orders they became more holistic concentrating on all aspects of healing including physical, mental, and spiritual. Instead of focusing on the patient as a carrier of disease and death they began to look at them as a person that has certain fundamental needs for existence. One of these needs as fore mentioned is spirituality. Spirituality simply defined “is that which relates to or affects the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. Spirituality touches that part of you that is not dependent on material things or physical comforts” (Living Words of Wisdom, n.d.) 
“A healing hospital is built on the ancient tradition that love is at the center of healing. Within that framework, the Golden Thread – a symbol of our faith in God – requires that we strike a balance between the latest scientific advancements and the demands of the human spirit. As healthcare providers, we are called upon to tend to our patient’s heart and head. For a hospital to truly be healing, the Golden Thread must be continuous. As both healers and patients, it is the Golden Thread that connects us all” (Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, n.d.). 
As the religious orders began to be unable to maintain the hospitals due to changes in regulations and a decline in their membership hospitals in......

Healing Hospitals

...Running head: Healing Hospitals Healing Hospitals HLT-310V July 16, 2012 Modern hospitals operate under financial restrictions, resulting in intervention-centric care that generally does not go beyond meeting the bottom line of financial obligations. As a result, morale issues among hospital staff and mediocre working conditions tend to be the norm, leading to compromised health care provision. Change is sorely needed, especially considering the current, dismal state of the health care system. Embracing the radical paradigm of hospitals as nurturing, healing communities can and will help improve outcomes. The core idea of a healing hospital is that love is at the center of healing. From this basis, the healing hospital is a place where “patients, their families and friends, caregivers… and the community can all journey towards wellness” (Zarren, n.d.). Healthcare providers in a healing hospital still use the latest in scientific and medical methods, but what distinguishes them from their brethren in other hospitals is that they provide equal attention to spiritual demands, i.e. they must tend to both the heart and the head. The healing hospital concept embraces three key components. The first is a “healing physical environment.” This concept not only takes into consideration patient care, but also how hospital staff engages with families as caregivers. Hence, the hospital environment is designed to be as welcoming, loving,......

The Healing Hospital

...Healing Hospital Introduction Health care delivery has always centered on holistic approach to patient care and all nursing education revolves around this concept of comprehensive nursing care and delivering a holistic nursing care to the patient. Addressing the patient as a whole not only means curing his disease but also respecting his social, physical, cultural and spiritual values. Healing hospitals are built keeping this in mind. Every human being is religious in one way or the other and leans on to the hope that his God will surely give him deliverance from this physical ailment’s hospital environment should facilitate this. Components of a Healing Hospital According to Chapman 2007 the healing hospital is a concept that more than anything else, it supports the culture of caring. Therefore love is the core of healing. A healing hospital is built on the olden belief that love is at the center of healing. The Healing Hospital represents a vision of true quality built on the most important belief of human existence- loving one another (Chapman, 2007). Their idea is supporting a strong background of caring for their patients and caregivers. Healing Hospitals employ the three symbols of loving services which are: 1. A Golden Thread that symbols faith in god to represent positive tradition of healing, 2. A pair of intersecting circles that symbolizes hope that flow into and out hearts when we experience loving encounters 3. The red heart that symbolizes love.......
