Needs Assessment for Quality Improvement Paper

1) A description of the chosen process:

I work for a county library, and a process in my organization that needs improvement is the challenge that libraries face due to homeless persons camping in our branches. We need a better solution to this problem and this paper will attempt to offer some answers. Many of homeless people have nowhere to go and seek refuge at our nation's libraries. The public challenge is that some of them use the restroom facilities to bathe or sleep, some have been caught masturbating using our computers, and some have slept with their baggage between the shelves of our bookcases where patrons need to be able to access our materials.
