Use of questionnaires Sample from the prisoners being admitted 12 sample of immigrants Interview Interview From the research, it has been analyzed that poor information management have led to lack of evidence in provision of service to the prisoners. The information management is no effective hence no evidence from which overall service can be based (Wallace, et al., 2019). It is critical to ensure effective management of information It has been analyzed that there is poor accessibility of healthcare service among the migrants. There is poor service being provided to the patient due to inadequate resources. The findings have indicated that there is no effective distribution of healthcare organization from which the migrants can be served. It has been recommended that there should be introduction of effective ways leading to increase The findings have indicated that the service being provided from the healthcare sector has been affected by the resources available.

Key findings Crowdfunding have therefore been implemented to raise funds for healthcare service. Recommend There should be effective ations strategies to ensure funds availability in healthcare sector. Sample from the organization involved in care management Case study analysis Sample of healthcare staffing The analysis have indicated that there is great importance of human resources in healthcare. Resource management helps in effective utilization of resources hence leading to effective outcome in service being provided. There should be introduction of human resources position in every healthcare organization (Bassani, Marinelli, & Vismara, 2019). Case study Sample of Seventy medical and surgical inpatients completed Use of interviews Sample from the organization being faced by resource unavailability Use of questionnaires The resources have been inadequate hence not available for effective care (Malelelo-Ndou, Ramathuba, & Netshisaulu, 2019). It has been found that availability of resources in healthcare has great impact among the nurse care. Communication helps in discussion of issue which should be provided in healthcare sector (Guliani, Hadjistavropoulos, Jin, & Lix, 2020). Effective decision in resources distribution is determined in resource availability or inadequacy. Reduction of cost is key strategy to ensure effective distribution of resources in healthcare. There should be enough and effective distribution of resources for nurse care There should be effective communication between the top managers in healthcare organization in distribution of resources (Brown, Lack of strategies related to cost reduction have resulted to increase issue associated with lack of enough resources in healthcare, Effective strategies needs to be implemented for achievement of resources under low cost. LITERATURE REVIEW AND THEORY 8 How this Lack of funds is part of lack of supports resources in healthcare EBP/Capsto organization. ne Resource utilization shall determine the availability of resources in future operation. Resource allocation determines issue related to resources inadequate experienced in healthcare. Jecker, & Curtis, 2016). Distribution of material ensures availability of resources in healthcare. Resources distribution at lower cost helps in fighting issue relating in inadequacy. Incorporating a Theory Quantum resources theory will be considered as being the most applicable theory in consideration to issue relating to the unavailability of the resources in the healthcare organization. It will be implied in offering a highly powerful and versatile framework in studying different phenomenon which can be incorporated throughout the process of attaining the resources required in the healthcare organization. It is applied in determining the quality of the resources being distributed in the healthcare organization. This will be considered in ensuring that there has been the improvement of care management provided by the nurses in the healthcare facilities (Agarwal, et al., 2015). This is attributed to the reason that there have been great issues relating to resource availability and in other cases, poor quality service is provided. This has contributed to a negative influence on the provision of healthcare services. LITERATURE REVIEW AND THEORY 9 Though the application of this theory I have the capability of ensuring that there has been an effective establishment of strategies leading to better provision of healthcare resources. In addition, it will play a critical role through which cost reduction associated with the resources can be enhanced hence leading to effective availability. Therefore upon the incorporation of this theory, I will stand a better position in defining various reasons why there has been a reduced supply of resources in healthcare organizations hence standing a better chance to establish effective mechanisms to curb the menace. In the determination of this issue relating to the inadequate resources, I will effectively interact with top management involved in the supply of the resources. This will ensure effective communication tools hence leading to a better exchange of ideas on what needs to adhere. This is because poor communication skills have contributed to poor resource distribution hence leading to a decline in healthcare service provision.

This is attributed to the reason that, there has been an increase in the population hence resulting in a considerate increment in terms of the hospital service requirements. Therefore, the problem has been incurred in the sense that the available resources in healthcare provision have not been worth providing care for the increased number of people. The availability of the resources in the medical field is considered as being an important factor for better service provision among the patients. Some of the resources which have been researched to be on a slight decline include injections, medicines, beddings, food, proper clothing as well as hygiene facilities (Some et al., 2020). Lack of this service has been letting some of the patients not to be in a position of receiving considerate services from the healthcare providers. The research has indicated that some parents have been hosted in the hospital over several years and up to now, they have not been provided with required service. Such patients may be considered as the cause of the limited resources since some patients go to the hospital in daily service. Therefore in the case when they spend more time in the healthcare facilities they result in great problems i ...

Solution, Implementation, and Evaluation
Paper Proposal
The research provides a solution related to a lack of resources availability in the healthcare
organization. The issue of resource unavailability has contributed greatly to the increased suffering
of individuals due to poor service delivery. Based on this, the overall exploration intends to provide
a solution in consideration of the strategies and approaches which regards to be implemented to
ensure the availability of resources in healthcare. Decision making in this case will be essential in
the determination of strategic plan which needs to be incorporated for effective resource
availability. Some of the resources which have been evident to be on scarce comprise of the
injections, medicines, equipment along with building structures. Therefore, the solution in this
case, will aim at ensuring equal resources distribution in healthcare organization.
Implementation Plan
To obtain the required information necessary to provide evidence to organizational
leadership, there are various methods that regard to be utilized. These methods will help in the
provision of approval to the organization leader along with other staff leaders in evidence relating
to resource inavailability in healthcare. These methods comprise of the following; questionnaires
will be prepared and distributed in the healthcare organization which is believed to be faced by
lack of resource availability (Schilder, 2020). This shall be considered to involve both the
healthcare providers and the patients in providing information on how resource scarcity has been
contributing to poor service being provided. In addition to this, the use of questionnaire will be
important in having different healthcare stakeholders in the healthcare organization in the
determination of effective steps which regards to be established for a better supply of the resources
hence ensuring effective service delivery in the future healthcare organization. the methods of



interviews will also be considered as being critical among the top management and nurses in the
determination of ways through which the healthcare have been faced by a problem related to
resource supply. The use of interviews will only help in the presentation of staff leaders with
concrete evidence relating to the great risk associated with scarcity and measure which should be
undertaken to ...
