Answer preview

Various external factors often influence nurse managers’ decision-making. These factors include existing or new health policies, regulatory agencies, and healthcare financing (Li & Chapman, 2020). Health policy refers to the goals and principles that determine how care is accessed and delivered to patients (Li & Chapman, 2020). These policies are often codified at the federal and state levels and then refined within a hospital (Li & Chapman, 2020). According to Mrs. Hernandez, health policies help guide her decision-making. To get more information about how this happens, I asked Mrs. Hernandez to illustrate how health policy influences her decision-making. She responded by indicating that HIPAA requires healthcare providers to guarantee the privacy of patients’ health information (Li & Chapman, 2020). Due to this policy, Mrs. Hernandez is forced to develop strategies to protect the privacy of patient’s health data. For instance, she prohibits nurses from gossiping about patients admitted to their units, with nurses from their unit and other units.
