Social Security is a program that the public pays into then later draws from after they retire. The Social Security Act of 1935 created a social insurance program to protect individuals and their families from adverse events. Individuals paid small amounts from each check. Benefits were intended to balance itself out as some individuals would never use the funds they put in, while other most likely would need more than what their premium was for. The amount you receive is calculated from the amounts you have contributed throughout your employment career when you reached their set age of retirement (U.S. Social Security Administration).

Public assistance programs are programs to support the public when they do not have the resources to support themselves. These programs are ones where individuals must fit a set of criteria to qualify for the benefits.

These differences are important for all workers to understand because public assistance programs are there for all individuals. Regardless of the person’s work history, some programs will not allow for assistance if the individual makes too much. This is also important for workers to understand so that they can get their clients involved with the correct programs that will meet the clients needs.

A significant difference between social security and public assistance programs, is that social security is meant to provide monthly income for individuals that are of retirement age. Whereas public assistance programs are generally in place and meant to benefit those in a time of need due to various factors. (Popples & Leighninger, 2019)

Title II “Federal Old-Age Benefits”, of the Social Security Act is what people generally understand to be the primary intention of the program. It is a program that taxpayers pay into based on their income. Then when the taxpayer turns 65 and retires, they will receive a monthly income.  (Popples & Leighninger, 2019)

It is important to note that there are welfare programs built into social security that are in place to assist individuals when they are in a time of need, like other public assistance programs.  In my opinion there is far less of a negative perception surrounding social security benefits. I believe this is because most people understand social security’s primary function is to distribute funds to retired individuals who have spent their life working. Often the stigma for public assistance programs is that it is there to serve those unwilling to work.  In my opinion I think this is a distinct and unfair difference in perception of the programs.  As, at their core both programs are meant to financially assist people in a time of need.

For this discussion, I will be describing the African American population and how they may be disenfranchised by the social security program. According to data from the United States Census Bureau, African Americans make up approximately 13.4% of the close to 332 million persons living in the United States (United States Census Bureau, 2020). Spriggs and Furman reported that some 4.8 million African Americans receive some sort of Social Security benefits.

           There are several reasons why there may be disparities in the benefits that African Americans receive from Social Security. One of those reasons is due to the fact that African Americans tend to have lower income overall. Social Security benefits are dependent on one’s income over their lifetime. In turn, when African Americans are earning less over subsequently, their Social Security benefits will be less. In addition, this leaves less income for African Americans to place any money in other types of retirement savings plans making African Americans more reliant on their lower social security benefits (Hendley & Bilimoria, 1999). This disparity in income places millions African Americans at greater risk for poverty.

A population that may be disenfranchised by the Social Security program may be those who are living in the United States unlawfully, or individuals known as undocumented immigrants. In describing this population, most of these individuals are part of the Hispanic/Latinx population. According to research conducted by Whitman, Reznik, and Shoffner (2011), utilizing projections from the Modeling Income in the Near-Term microsimulation model and concentrating on individuals who are of Social Security receiving age, around four percent of the population in the United States will not receive Social Security benefits. This percentage disproportionately includes women, Hispanic/Latinx individuals, and immigrants.

As further noted by Torres-Gil, et al. (2005), even though it is highly beneficial to them, many Hispanic immigrants, primarily women, will never received Social Security benefits because of the stipulations and requirements associated with receiving those benefits. Unfortunately, “Without Social Security, over half of elderly Hispanics would live in poverty; [because of] Social Security, less than a fifth [of Hispanics] do” (Torres-Gil, et al., 2005, p. 2). Many Hispanic individuals, as a result of their potential immigration status or other disparate conditions, do not receive the Social Security benefits that others, including citizens and legal immigrants, receive. Many Hispanics or members of the Latinx population also have, according to Torres-Gil, et al. (2005), larger families and longer life expectancies, further disenfranchising them from Social Security benefits.

Managing quality and risk | Nursing homework help

Managing risk and ensuring quality requires skillful resource management. Resource management enables a leader to operate from a position of ability and planning rather than managing reactions to crises. Resource management also lends itself to creative team building and the diffusion of change.

To prepare for your monthly meeting with your team, you have developed a presentation called Managing Quality and Risk. You would also like to use the time to address increasing stress and rush during transitions with patients and shifts. You have decided to create another section in the presentation called Identifying Waste.

For this assessment, you will create a Microsoft PowerPoint® presentation incorporating the details of both sections of the assessment. Interpersonal communication skills are integral to presentation of organized ideas and change.

Create a 14- to 20-slide PowerPoint® presentation that includes the following:
Managing Quality and Risk
Consider how managing quality often means addressing small issues to prevent them from escalating into ethical, legal, or fiscal risks for the organization. Keep in mind, you are adding to your presentation with the goal of showing your chief nursing officer how you plan to address the topic you select from the list below.

Select one of the following topics:

  • Mitigating bullying and lateral violence
  • Managing conflict
  • Using power to influence elevations for value and safety
  • Valuing diversity
  • Identifying Waste and Resource Management
    Think about the clinical environment where you work or one in which you previously worked.
    Identify opportunities for waste reduction. Consider the following:
  • Setting: administrative, operational, clinical
  • Efficiency
  • Value to patient
  • Value to quality and safety in nursing practice
  • Develop a plan to carry out your suggestions as a nurse leader on your floor. Consider:
  • Available resources: time, budget, space, industry collateral, personnel
  • Employee engagement
  • Change management principles
  • Team dynamics
  • Communication strategies
  • Suggest process changes to improve the situation as if you are communicating to frontline staff and nurse leaders and explaining your findings.

    Format your PowerPoint® presentation to ensure the slides only contain essential information and as little text as possible. Do not design a slide made up of long bullet points. Include detailed speaker notes for each slide of your presentation. Your speaker notes convey the details you would give if you were presenting.

    Review the Create Speaker Notes page on Microsoft® for more help.
