The purpose of this assignment is to create a case study of ones own. The case study is to be completely fabricated by the student based on problems, solutions, issues, and trends that exist within healthcare organizations today that the student has learned of in this course. The student can base the paper on a current organization (ie: Florida Hospital) or the student can make up the organization (ie: Crider’s Urgent Care). The case study must be 5 COMPLETE pages. The case studies in the back of the book can be used as guidance, but are not to be used in any aspect of the paper. Students will work individually on this assignment.
