For any health care activity, three performance factors can be measured: structure, process, and outcome. Identify one

structure measure, one process measure, and one outcome measure that could be used to evaluate the following hospital

admission process:
Upon arrival, the patient reports to the hospital registration or admitting area. The patient completes paperwork and

provides an insurance identification card, if insured. Often, patients register before the date of hospital admission to

facilitate the registration process. An identification bracelet including the patient’s name and doctor’s name is placed

around the patient’s wrist. Before any procedure is performed or any form of medical care is provided, the patient is

asked to sign a consent form. If the patient is not feeling well, a family member or caregiver can help the patient

complete the admission process.

Format your paper consistent with APA 6th guidelines.

choosing the right medication for the patient’s condition. List each measure the organization or group that developed the

measure, and the date the measure was published.
