Massachusetts Ambulatory Surgery Center Certification and Licensure Regulations

release date: Jan 26, 2020
Massachusetts Ambulatory Surgery Center Certification and Licensure Regulations
Understanding the Certification and Licensure Regulations that govern ASCs in the State of Massachusetts is critical to the success of these facilities. This resource provides a convenient pocket guide to the CM Conditions for Coverage and the State Licensure Regulations. Ambulatory Surgery Center administrators, nursing directors and business office managers are faced with a daunting task - assuring that their facility complies with a wide-range of rules and regulations. The regulations promulgated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are of primary importance because they affect the eligibility for certification as an ASC and participation in the Medicare program. The Massachusetts State regulations govern the licensure of facilities that operate in Massachusetts. ASCs in the state must adhere to both sets of regulations. While no one volume can provide all of the up-to-date guidance needed for an ASC to understand the State and Federal regulations to maintain certification and licensure, this guide provides a convenient, easy to read reference guide.

The Modern Girl

release date: Jan 21, 2020
The Modern Girl
Two women, ninety years apart, and an abandoned house that holds the key to a secret. When Frances Stewart wins a beauty pageant in 1931, she also wins a Hollywood screen test which enables her to leave behind her staid Victorian lifestyle in New Zealand and become the ‘modern girl’ she aspires to be. But she soon finds the reality behind the glamorous Hollywood facade isn’t as wonderful as she’d imagined. Ninety years later, Paige Sinclair travels to New Zealand to meet her previously unknown and ailing grandmother, and an ancestral home she’s been told she will inherit. With a failed marriage and alone in the world, Paige feels compelled to look back into the past to satisfy her need for family and connections. So she starts with her grandmother and the mysterious, abandoned house which holds the key to a secret Paige is determined to uncover. But some secrets are never quite as they seem… A compelling story of love, family and secrets, for fans of Kate Morton, Fiona Valpy, Mary Ellen Taylor, and Hannah Richell.

The Arid Lands

release date: Mar 25, 2016
The Arid Lands
An argument that the perception of arid lands as wastelands is politically motivated and that these landscapes are variable, biodiverse ecosystems, whose inhabitants must be empowered. Deserts are commonly imagined as barren, defiled, worthless places, wastelands in need of development. This understanding has fueled extensive anti-desertification efforts—a multimillion-dollar global campaign driven by perceptions of a looming crisis. In this book, Diana Davis argues that estimates of desertification have been significantly exaggerated and that deserts and drylands—which constitute about 41% of the earth's landmass—are actually resilient and biodiverse environments in which a great many indigenous people have long lived sustainably. Meanwhile, contemporary arid lands development programs and anti-desertification efforts have met with little success. As Davis explains, these environments are not governed by the equilibrium ecological dynamics that apply in most other regions. Davis shows that our notion of the arid lands as wastelands derives largely from politically motivated Anglo-European colonial assumptions that these regions had been laid waste by “traditional” uses of the land. Unfortunately, such assumptions still frequently inform policy. Drawing on political ecology and environmental history, Davis traces changes in our understanding of deserts, from the benign views of the classical era to Christian associations of the desert with sinful activities to later (neo)colonial assumptions of destruction. She further explains how our thinking about deserts is problematically related to our conceptions of forests and desiccation. Davis concludes that a new understanding of the arid lands as healthy, natural, but variable ecosystems that do not necessarily need improvement or development will facilitate a more sustainable future for the world's magnificent drylands.
