confidence of other hospitals and medical institutions in their providing of quality care, patient satisfaction and less use of money. The patients are more confident and willing to be involved in the patient-centered care since they know they can obtain high-quality care without giving lots of money out of their pockets for services. Various organizations are adjusting reimbursement rates by linking payment to performance to ensure quality services are offered. Medics feel that the move will increase burden and blame for nurses without corresponding to improvements among the staff, salaries and wages and the working environment. They include the CMS, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS).etc. HCAHPS assesses the patients experience with the staff, information shared, overall satisfaction ,care experience and the patient’s will to recommend the hospital to other patients while CMS uses this information to determine reimbursement rates to patients. Examples of hospitals that have received reimbursement bonuses following good performance as per the CMS findings include: Oaklawn hospital in Marshall, Vanderbilt University medical care in Nashville, Massachusetts general hospital, New York Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, Cedars Sinai Medical Centre and Ronald Reagan UCLA medical centre in Los Angeles etc. Clearly, it is important to implement patient –family centered care since it is beneficial to all the participants. It redefines the relationships in health care by shaping up new policies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
