Describe Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Project
Imagine that you have assumed the role of infection control officer for Good Hope Hospital. Your first task is to identify the total hospital infection rate for the month of June. The below table includes the patient information needed to identify this rate:
1.) Total patients seen2,300 patients
2.) Total deaths12 patients
3.) Total discharges1,988 patients
4.) Total hospital infections35
A few months later, you learn that infection rates have nearly doubled during the last quarter within all areas of the organization.
How would you put together an infection control team to assist in controlling infection rates, and what would be the most predictable areas of concern before initial analysis? Why? Vital statistics information is essential in tracking trends and changes within the general population.
What are some current elective medical procedures that may have an impact on adequate tracking and monitoring for Good Hope Hospital?

Week 1 Discussion
Go to http://fortune.com/fortune500/ and identify a company that you would like to write your Assignment #1 Case Study for in this class. Remember you are going to have to identify a problem and/or an opportunity. See the Rubric that will be used to grade this assignment in Week 2 Course Documents. You must choose an organization that another student has not chosen, so if someone else has already chosen your first choice you must pick another organization. Each student is to prepare their Case Study assignment on a different Fortune 500 company.
