statistics paper about a hospital
Using the scenario and two variables your learning team developed for the Week 2 Business Research Project Part 1 assignment, create a paper of no more than 700 words in which the goal is to submit a random sampling plan in such detail that another researcher could replicate the method.
Discuss the following:
(a) Population and size
(b) The target population and brief reasoning
(c) Sampling element which may be conducted through any of the following:
- Data mining
- Survey (If a survey is chosen, create a 5-10 question document), or
(d) The sample size
(e) Method of random sampling which may include:
- Systematic, or
Calculate the sample size using a 95% confidence level, and a 5% margin of error. Place the calculation in the Appendix.
Discuss how validity (and reliability) will be achieved.
Explain how human subjects will be protected (if applicable).
Explain how the data will be physically collected.
Explain where data will be stored and how it will be protected.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.Click the Assignment Files tab to submit your assignment.
so this is what i need to do based in this part down here
Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital
Grey-Sloan Memorial recently expanded the hospital to provide private rooms for most patients. In the past, more than one patient shared a room, which posed an issue concerning infection control, HIPAA privacy violations (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 2015), and hindered the healing process. Providing separate rooms eliminates cohabitating uninfected and infected patients. Noises from other patient’s guests and sounds from the television are reduced; also the medical team treatment discussions can not be overheard by others. Additionally, Grey-Sloan Memorial has adopted practices and suggestions in accordance with the Affordable Care Act (i.e. Obamacare) (Ref) such as implementing discharge coordinators to help prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions, additional infection control procedures to decrease the number of hospital-acquired infections, and increase patient satisfaction by making the patients and families an active part of their own care and decisions.
When Grey-Sloan increased the number of private rooms, it decreased the number patients it could serve. Expanding the hospital’s size helps, but there remains a shortfall. To improve the hospital’s throughput it needs to increase the patient enrollment with incentives to customers: insurance companies and primary health care providers. And, the hospital’s output needs to improve with higher the bed utilization. Grey-Sloan’s options are: change operational procedures, increase staff training or hire staff with new skills, add additional specialty equipment, and/or reconfigure the physical layout of the hospital. The result is to increase the range of services offered (independent variable IV) and cause the bed utilization (dependent variable DV) to increase.
Research Question and Hypothesis statements
RQ: What change in hospital service (IV) would best increase bed utilization (DV)?
H0: Bed utilization (DV) does not increase with changes in hospital services (IV)
H1: Bed utilization (DV) does increase with changes in hospital services (IV)
