Hospitals, Community: Institutions with permanent facilities and organized medical staff which provide the full range of hospital services primarily to a neighborhood area.Hospitals, Teaching: Hospitals engaged in educational and research programs, as well as providing medical care to the patients.Hospital Bed Capacity, 500 and overRetrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.DNA, Satellite: Highly repetitive DNA sequences found in HETEROCHROMATIN, mainly near centromeres. They are composed of simple sequences (very short) (see MINISATELLITE REPEATS) repeated in tandem many times to form large blocks of sequence. Additionally, following the accumulation of mutations, these blocks of repeats have been repeated in tandem themselves. The degree of repetition is on the order of 1000 to 10 million at each locus. Loci are few, usually one or two per chromosome. They were called satellites since in density gradients, they often sediment as distinct, satellite bands separate from the bulk of genomic DNA owing to a distinct BASE COMPOSITION.Satellite Cells, Skeletal Muscle: Elongated, spindle-shaped, quiescent myoblasts lying in close contact with adult skeletal muscle. They are thought to play a role in muscle repair and regeneration.Hospitals, University: Hospitals maintained by a university for the teaching of medical students, postgraduate training programs, and clinical research.RNA, Satellite: Small, linear single-stranded RNA molecules functionally acting as molecular parasites of certain RNA plant viruses. Satellite RNAs exhibit four characteristic traits: (1) they require helper viruses to replicate; (2) they are unnecessary for the replication of helper viruses; (3) they are encapsidated in the coat protein of the helper virus; (4) they have no extensive sequence homology to the helper virus. Thus they differ from SATELLITE VIRUSES which encode their own coat protein, and from the genomic RNA; (=RNA, VIRAL); of satellite viruses. (From Maramorosch, Viroids and Satellites, 1991, p143)Hospitals, General: Large hospitals with a resident medical staff which provides continuous care to maternity, surgical and medical patients.Satellite Communications: Communications using an active or passive satellite to extend the range of radio, television, or other electronic transmission by returning signals to earth from an orbiting satellite.Hospital Costs: The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care.

They are distinguished from the perineuronal satellite oligodendrocytes (OLIGODENDROGLIA) found in the central nervous system.Hospitals, AnimalHospital Charges: The prices a hospital sets for its services. HOSPITAL COSTS (the direct and indirect expenses incurred by the hospital in providing the services) are one factor in the determination of hospital charges. Other factors may include, for example, profits, competition, and the necessity of recouping the costs of uncompensated care.Hospital Units: Those areas of the hospital organization not considered departments which provide specialized patient care. They include various hospital special care wards.United StatesOutpatient Clinics, Hospital: Organized services in a hospital which provide medical care on an outpatient basis.Hospital Planning: Areawide planning for hospitals or planning of a particular hospital unit on the basis of projected consumer need. This does not include hospital design and construction or architectural plans.Hospitals, Psychiatric: Special hospitals which provide care to the mentally ill patient.Cross Infection: Any infection which a patient contracts in a health-care institution.Questionnaires: Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.Patient Admission: The process of accepting patients. The concept includes patients accepted for medical and nursing care in a hospital or other health care institution.Hospital Records: Compilations of data on hospital activities and programs; excludes patient medical records.Patient Discharge: The administrative process of discharging the patient, alive or dead, from hospitals or other health facilities.Time Factors: Elements of limited time intervals, contributing to particular results or situations.PAX7 Transcription Factor: A paired box transcription factor that is involved in EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and SKELETAL MUSCLE.Surgery Department, Hospital: Hospital department which administers all departmental functions and the provision of surgical diagnostic and therapeutic services.Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Libraries, Hospital: Information centers primarily serving the needs of hospital medical staff and sometimes also providing patient education and other services.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Hospitals, County: Hospitals controlled by the county government.Inpatients: Persons admitted to health facilities which provide board and room, for the purpose of observation, care, diagnosis or treatment.Teaching Materials: Instructional materials used in teaching.Community Networks: Organizations and individuals cooperating together toward a common goal at the local or grassroots level.Cross-Sectional Studies: Studies in which the presence or absence of disease or other health-related variables are determined in each member of the study population or in a representative sample at one particular time. This contrasts with LONGITUDINAL STUDIES which are followed over a period of time.Satellite Imagery: Composition of images of EARTH or other planets from data collected during SPACE FLIGHT by remote sensing instruments onboard SPACECRAFT.

A prospective study was undertaken from 1969 to 1974 to evaluate a program establishing coronary care units in small community hospitals. Crude mortality rates from acute myocardial infarction in these small hospitals were 14.5%, slightly higher but not statistically different from concurrently collected data in three larger comparison hospitals (11.5%). Multivariate discriminate analysis of clinical characteristics was used to calculate a risk score for each patient admitted. Observed deaths exceeded expected deaths (134 versus 119) (P , 0.30) in small hospitals but observed deaths were less than expected (55 versus 77) (P , 0.05) in comparison hospitals. Mortality was significantly greater in those units admitting fewer than 60 patients with infarctions yearly (20.9%) than in those admitting more than 60 (10.7%) (P , 0.001). These data suggest that coronary care units in small community ...

Background: Nosocomial infections (NIs) constitute an important worldwide health problem with high morbidity and mortality rate as well as economic consequences. We aimed to determine incidence of nosocomial infection in surgical intensive care unit (SICU). Aims & Objectives: To find out incidence of nosocomial infection in surgical intensive care unit (SICU) at a large teaching hospital in North India. Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted during a period of one year from 1st Oct 2013 to 30th Sep 2014 in SICU of SKIMS. The researcher visited the SICU on daily basis at 10 am in the morning to note down presence or absence of signs and symptoms of nosocomial infection as per the laid down criteria. The researcher used inpatient records, interacted with clinical staff to establish absence or presence of nosocomial infection. Criteria for establishment of nosocomial infections were adopted in accordance with the simplified definition derived from the Centre for ...
A total of 7603 patients were identified, with 61.2% (n = 4650) in the teaching hospital group and 38.8% (n = 2953) in the nonteaching hospital group.

Likewise, complex procedures (defined as fusion of 8 or more segments and/or osteotomy) were more common in teaching hospitals (27.3% vs 21.7%, p , 0.001). Crude overall complication rates were similar in teaching hospitals (47.9%) compared with nonteaching hospitals (49.8%, p = 0.114). After controlling for patient characteristics, case complexity, and revision status, patients treated at teaching hospitals were ...
Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal Charlie McConalogue is calling on the Minister for Social Care to urgently clarify the plan for three community hospitals in the county. The Government has announced funding for a number of community hospitals in Donegal, but there is concern about the future of St. Josephs in Stranorlar, Ramelton Community Hospital and Lifford Community Hospital.. Deputy McConalogue explained, "While I welcome the money allocated under the Health Capital Plan for services in Carndonagh, Buncrana and Letterkenny, I am seriously concerned about the future for the community hospitals in Stranorlar, Lifford and Ramelton. The plan, published by Minister Kathleen Lynch, states that these hospitals will be "replaced" by Letterkenny and no additional funding has been allocated to them. This is extremely worrying; the ...
Utilization of gastroprotective strategies for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced gastrointestinal events in a major teaching hospital Hooi Leng Lee,1 Siew Siang Chua,1 Sanjiv Mahadeva2 1Department of Pharmacy, 2Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Background and purpose: Clinical guidelines recommend the prescribing of gastroprotective strategies in nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) users with risk factors for gastrointestinal (GI) ulcer or ulcer complications. However, these guidelines are not often translated into clinical practice. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the utilization of gastroprotective strategies for NSAID-induced upper GI events in at-risk users in a major teaching hospital. Patients and methods: A cross-sectional, observational, pharmacy-based study was conducted in a major Asian institution with both primary and secondary health ...

Carotid stenting has become the treatment of choice in patients who need carotid endarterectomy (CEA) but are at high surgical risk (1,2). Concern remains about the incidence of stroke, particularly in the community hospital setting and in certain patient groups, particularly the elderly and symptomatic patients (3). Clearly, there is a need to make carotid revascularization, be it endarterectomy or stenting, safer. A blood test for stroke that is analogous to troponin or creatine phosphokinase-myocardial band for the heart would be ideal; the blood-brain barrier has posed a significant challenge and as yet none of these tests has been found acceptable (4,5).. In this issue of JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions, Schofer et al. (6) report on the use of serial diffusion weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a surrogate marker for brain ischemia during carotid stenting. They are to be congratulated on continuing their previous work in this important area (7). They ...
Given the frequency of undesired and often catastrophic outcomes on hospital wards, it is reasonable to question whether the available range of monitoring and surveillance modalities is appropriate for all patients. Our study also demonstrated that a substantial proportion of patients are at low risk for such events. Initial identification of substantial proportions of the patient population at either extreme of the risk spectrum could lead to more effective and efficient allocation of nursing staff and monitoring modalities that would match resources to patient need in tiered care units.. A useful predictor of adverse hospital outcome should demonstrate good discrimination for heterogeneous patient populations in tertiary and community hospital settings. It should be independent of primary diagnosis due to the wide variety of possible diagnoses and often the difficulty at the time of admission to make an accurate diagnosis. As well, it ...

Nosocomial and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) are causes of significant morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. We analyzed a) the incidence and the outcome of pneumonias caused by different pathogens in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a medium-sized twenty-four bed community hospital and b) the incidence of complications of such pneumonias requiring surgical intervention such as thoracotomy and decortication. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of patients diagnosed with nosocomial and ventilator-associated pneumonia in our ICU. Their bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and sputum cultures, antibiograms, and other clinical characteristics, including complications and need for tracheostomy, thoracotomy and decortication were studied. In a span of one year (2011-12), 43 patients were diagnosed with nosocomial pneumonia in our ICU. The median simplified acute physiology score (SAPS II) was 39. One or more gram negative organisms as the causative ...
BACKGROUND: Adverse drug events (ADEs) occur often in hospitals, causing high morbidity and a longer length of stay (LOS), and are costly. However, most studies on the impact of ADEs have been conducted in tertiary referral centers, which are systematically different than community hospitals, where the bulk of care is delivered, and most available data about ADE costs in any setting are dated. Costs in community settings are generally lower than in academic hospitals, and the costs of ADEs might be as well. To assess the additional costs and LOS associated with patients with ADEs, a multicenter retrospective cohort study was conducted in six community hospitals with 100 to 300 beds in Massachusetts during a 20-month observation period (January 2005-August 2006). METHODS: A random sample of 2,100 patients (350 patients per study site) was drawn from a pool of 109,641 patients treated within ...

Abstract HYPOTHESIS: Selected elements of a simple physical examination algorithm accurately predict categories of shock. SETTING: A 350‐bed community teaching hospital. METHODS: Resident trainees who manage all critically ill and medically unstable patients were instructed to document capillary refill, (palpated) pulse volume, skin temperature, jugular venous pressure (JVP) and lung examination in all patients with prolonged (|30 minutes hypotension 7 cmH2O was more accurate than bilateral pulmonary crackles (|1/3 from bases) in predicting cardiogenic shock for low‐output patients with sensitivity of 82%, specificity of 79%, PPV of 75%, NPV of 85%, and overall accuracy of 80%. Using just skin temperature and JVP, the bedside approach correctly diagnosed 52/68 cases (overall accuracy = 76%). CONCLUSIONS: Simple bedside clinical examination findings correctly predict categories of shock in a majority of cases. Journal of Hospital Medicine ...
The factors related to the occurrence of bacteraemia following urinary tract manipulation were studied in a large community hospital. During a 3-year period, forty-six of 326 episodes of hospital-acquired bacteraemia were associated with urinary tract manipulation. All thirty of forty-six cases felt to be definitely related to urinary tract manipulation (other obvious sources of bacteraemia being absent) had pre-existing urinary tract disease, especially of an obstructive type; only one in this group died from sepsis. The remaining sixteen patients had other possible sources of bacteraemia besides urinary tract manipulation and had disorders associated with defects in host defences; twelve (75%) in this group died from overwhelming sepsis. Thus, if bacteraemia occurs in a patient having had urinary tract manipulation but without any underlying urinary tract abnormality or impairment in host defences, its source should be searched for in other areas of the ...

There is considerable discussion surrounding whether advanced hospitals provide better childbirth care than local community hospitals. This study examines the effect of shifting childbirth services from advanced hospitals (i.e., medical centers and regional hospitals) to local community hospitals (i.e., clinics and district hospitals). The sample population was tracked over a seven-year period, which includes the four months of the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic in Taiwan. During the SARS epidemic, pregnant women avoided using maternity services in advanced hospitals. Concerns have been raised about maintaining the quality of maternity care with increased demands on childbirth services in local community hospitals. In this study, we analyzed the impact of shifting maternity services among ...

A rising second year medical student read some of my posts and wrote me a kind note asking if I would write something for students. I taught students and ran surgical clerkships at community teaching hospitals for my entire career until about 19 months ago. I also was prompted to address this subject after reading a recent New York Times story about a new admissions policy at Mt. Sinai Medical School. The school is accepting some students who are majoring in the humanities and are not required to take the usual science courses or the MCAT. In the words of one of the participants in the program: "I didnt want to waste a class on physics, or waste a class on orgo [organic chemistry]. The social determinants of health are so much more pervasive than the immediate biology of it." I agree that possibly "orgo" and probably physics are not necessarily essential for medical school applicants. But I think these courses are still relevant because they assess ones ...
The process of admitting patients from the emergency department (ED) to an academic internal medicine (AIM) service in a community teaching hospital is one fraught with variability and disorder. This results in an inconsistent volume of patients admitted to academic versus private hospitalist services and results in frustration of both ED and AIM clinicians. We postulated that implementation of a mobile application (app) would improve provider satisfaction and increase admissions to the academic service. The app was designed and implemented to be easily accessible to ED physicians, regularly updated by academic residents on call, and a real-time source of the number of open AIM admission spots ...

The national standard for "door-to-balloon" time is 90 minutes. Door-to-balloon time is a measure of how quickly a team is able to restore blood flow in a patient having a heart attack; it is tracked from when the patient arrives in the hospital "door" (or emergency department) to the point in time when angioplasty is used to open the blocked heart artery causing the heart attack. The sooner the blockage is opened, the less damage to the heart muscle.. Rather than transporting patients to another hospital for emergency angioplasty, our patients can be taken to Evangelicals cath lab, minimizing time to treatment, and allowing diagnosis and treatment to happen all in one place. Evangelicals "door-to-balloon" time is consistently below national standard.. ...

Giardia is not endemic in Norway, and more than 90% of reported cases acquire the infection abroad. In late October 2004, an increase in laboratory confirmed cases of giardiasis was reported in the city of Bergen. An investigation was started to determine the source and extent of the outbreak in order to implement control measures. Cases were identified through the laboratory conducting giardia diagnostics in the area. All laboratory-confirmed cases were mapped based on address of residence, and attack rates and relative risks were calculated for each water supply zone. A case control study was conducted among people living in the central area of Bergen using age- and sex matched controls randomly selected from the population register. The outbreak investigation showed that the outbreak started in late August and peaked in early October. A total of 1300 laboratory-confirmed cases were reported. Data from the Norwegian Prescription Database gave an estimate of 2500 cases treated for giardiasis probably
Canadian cancer care has evolved under systems of provincial and federal fiscal control and aims to optimize the management of patients within each province. In Manitoba, patients are initially assessed at one centre but can subsequently receive chemotherapy at an outreach centre closer to home. In British Columbia, two outreach mechanisms exist: consultative clinics provide consultative and follow-up care by radiotherapists and medical oncologists who travel to outreach centres, and community-based regional oncologists provide diagnostic and treatment services in small communities. In Ontario, peripheral clinics are staffed by oncologists from the two provincial cancer institutions, but efforts have been made to find newer outreach models that will better serve certain communities in that province. Two basic models of cancer care organization in the community presently exist in Canada: one stresses the extension of resources outward to the community from ...
Caveats aside, the findings are there for all to see, and the socio-politico-economic fallout will be fascinating. Since most hospitalist groups get (and require) hospital support, and much of that support has been predicated on a Return-on-Investment drawn from earlier findings of 15 percent LOS and cost reductions, expect some skirmishes at budget time, with hospitals trying to tighten the screws on their hospitalist groups ("why should we raise your support - you only save us $200 per patient!"). The hospitalist group that has not convinced its CFO that the true ROI doesnt hinge on pure cost reduction - but rather on systems improvement, QI, patient safety, and more - may be in for a bumpy ride. In fact, as Larry McMahons thoughtful NEJM editorial articulates, for all its admirable exposition and scientific rigor, the new study probably doesnt matter very much. The hospitalist genie is out of the bottle - ...
Panetto worked with the Peace Corps Partnership Program (PCPP) to raise the cash for the solar array, which will soon be installed at the clinic. In order to receive funding through the PCPP, the community made a 25 percent contribution to the total project cost, and outlined success indicators for the project. According to the Peace Corps, this helps to ensure community ownership and increase the chances of the projects long-term sustainability.. Similar examples of solar reaching rural areas of the continent arent hard to find. For instance, a partnership between a chemistry professor at the University of Southampton in the U.K. and a former educator at the International School in Lusaka, Zambia, has resulted in solar power digital projectors bringing cutting-edge science to rural Zambian schools. And in the small community of Tsumkwe, Namibia, a hybrid solar-diesel system-installed in 2011-currently supplies all public buildings and 100 households with ...

MD, 77, has retired after being the only interventional radiologist in Northeast Michigan for 26 years. "It is time to enjoy what I have worked for my whole life, and spend more time with my family and friends," he says. It has been 26 years since Dr. Weeks toured ARMC (formerly Alpena General Hospital) saying, "I thought it was such a nice hospital for a small community, and I was fortunate to work with Dr. Bill Walker." Dr. Weeks arrived in Alpena in 1989 after a family practice residency in Kalamazoo Michigan. He began his career working at St. Josephs hospital near Benton Harbor. He then decided to return for a residency in radiology. He spent four years at Beaumont studying diagnostic, interventional, and neuroradiology. He worked at Mid-Michigan Regional Medical Center for four years before coming to Alpena. As an interventionist, Dr. Weeks has spearheaded a successful dialysis program over the course of his career at ARMC along with ...
I learned the inner workings from a dedicated administrative staff, including an amazing and creative Executive Director, Ann Zuvekas. The program provided access to health care services to 8,000-14,000 farmworkers and their families in a two-state area of Minnesota and North Dakota (with the majority of care provided in a 8-10 week period of time each summer) through the operation of fifteen seasonal nurse-managed health clinics. There were no cell phones, no electronic health records, no fax machines or scanning capabilities. We utilized family charts and telephones at the health centers (which were rented spaces in the small communities - churches, storefronts, social service buildings, etc.). Health center staff provided care through home visits, voucher referrals to local providers, coordination with migrant schools, and evening clinic services ...
The great diurnal variation in the quality of wastewater of small communities is an obstacle to the efficient removal of high nitrogen with traditional activated sludge processes provided by pre-denitrification. To verify this problem, the authors developed a pilot plant, in which the domestic wastewater of community of 15,000 inhabitants was treated. The results demonstrate that average and peak nitrogen removal efficiencies of over 60% and 70%, respectively, are difficult to obtain because of the strong variations in the BOD5/NO3-N ratios and the unexpected abnormal accumulation of dissolved oxygen during denitrification when the BOD5 load is low. These phenomena cause inhibitory effects and BOD5 deficiency in the denitrification process. The results demonstrate the need for a more complex approach to designing and managing small wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) provided with denitrification than those usually adopted for medium- and large-size plants.
Little is known about the emergence and spread of virulent subtypes of Cryptosporidium hominis, the predominant species responsible for human cryptosporidiosis. We conducted sequence analyses of 32 genetic loci of 53 C. hominis specimens isolated from a longitudinally followed cohort of children living in a small community. We identified by linkage disequilibrium and recombination analyses only limited genetic recombination, which occurred exclusively within the 60-kDa glycoprotein gene subtype IbA10G2, a predominant subtype for outbreaks in industrialized nations and a virulent subtype in the study community. Intensive transmission of virulent subtype IbA10G2 in the study area might have resulted in genetic recombination with other subtypes. Moreover, we identified selection for IbA10G2 at a 129-kb region around the 60-kDa glycoprotein gene in chromosome 6. These findings improve our understanding of the origin and evolution of C. hominis subtypes and the spread of virulent ...

The majority of Utahns are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the United States and Northern Europe. Other groups came from such diverse areas as Australia, South Africa, the Pacific Islands, and the Near East. A few African-Americans were among the earliest immigrants in Utah. People not belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came from all parts of the United States and foreign countries. Jewish merchants established businesses in Utah cities and a small Jewish community was organized in Clarion in 1911. Mining discoveries and the arrival of the railroad in the 1860s brought thousands of new settlers to the territory. These included small communities of African-Americans, Asians, and immigrants from the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East. Many immigrants settled in Carbon and other eastern Utah counties. A land boom in the Uintah Basin in 1905 attracted homesteaders to eastern Utah. A small number of Hispanics from Colorado and ...
On the evening of December 24, 1924, Palmertown, a small community in Saltville, Virginia was engulfed in a flood of water and alkali muck. Houses were lifted from their foundations, many torn apart in the process, and by the time all of the bodies were pulled from the wreckage, the death toll had reached 19-an immense loss for a small, tight-knit community. The dam, owned by Mathieson Alkali Works, loomed approximately 100 feet above Palmertown, keeping at bay the chemical muck produced by the company plants. However, for reasons that are still not entirely clear, the dam broke on Christmas Eve and would go down in infamy under names such as "The Saltville Muck Dam Disaster," "The Christmas Eve Disaster," and "The Palmertown Tragedy.". Despite being the greatest disaster-technological or otherwise-to ever hit Saltville, Virginia, scholarship on the event is incredibly limited. Furthermore, Palmertown and neighboring Henrytown were quite literally wiped off the map in the ...
A pap smear is a common screening tool for cervical cancer in most countries with comprehensive health systems. If this test is positive, meaning abnormal, the doctor generally examines the cervix through a colposcope, which allows for a closer look for problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. A new cancer detection device, consisting of a cellphone app, a smartphone, and a clip-on lens may soon replace colposcopy, or at least substitute for it when a colposcope is not available. The device, made by MobileOCT, won the start-up company first prize at Vodafones Wireless Innovation Project Competition, held last week.. Due to the cost of video colposcopes, which run between $10,000 and $14,000, health providers, particularly in small communities or developing countries, often resort to examining the cervix using a flashlight for lack of the proper equipment. When abnormal tissue is found during a standard colposcopy a biopsy is usually done. Due to the inaccuracy of using a flashlight and ...
Iowa Hospital Community Benefit Exceeds $1.2 Billion. A statewide survey by the Iowa Hospital Association (IHA) shows Iowa hospitals provided community benefits in 2009 valued at more than $1.2 billion.. Community benefits are activities designed to improve health status and provide greater access to health care. Along with uncompensated care (which is made up of both charity care and bad debt), community benefits include such services and programs as health screenings, support groups, counseling, immunizations, nutritional services and transportation programs. The total value of these services, as reported in the survey, was nearly $147 million. All 118 of Iowas community hospitals participated in the survey.. The programs and services accounted for in the survey were implemented in direct response to the needs of individual communities as well as entire ...
To show the value of our free public education, take a moment to consider this authors high school graduating class. The small community of 12,000 was basically a coal mining and farming city. The class of 56 produced nine coal miners, some of whom became management, as well as seven homemakers. The two valedictorians (a tie) became a doctor (one of three) and a nurse (one of two). We also have an LPN from our midst. One of us became a public school administrator; another served that role in a junior college. At least two were teachers. Three or more owned their own businesses. We proudly claim four engineers. Five of us worked in real estate, some as brokers. We boast at least one insurance person as well as two investment gurus. One of us became a cinematographer who worked nationally. Another was a photographer. Two became counselors or psychologists. One is a journalist and book author. We can claim one person in electronics and one a systems analyst. One of us became a veterinarian -- ...

Historically, low- and middle-income countries have lower breast cancer rates than more economically developed countries. Yet, as these countries adopt a more Westernized lifestyle their populations face growing rates of heart disease, depression, diabetes, and cancer. The Rio Grande Valley of south Texas is home to a rapidly growing minority population. Since 2000, Cameron, Hidalgo, and Webb counties in South Texas have experienced population growth rates of 24.5%, 43.3%, and 35.9%, respectively1. Residents of these counties, located along the United States-Mexican border, are largely Hispanic (88.5% - 95.3%) and predominantly of Mexican descent, with more than one quarter born outside the U.S. Approximately one-third of the population lives below the poverty line and adult illiteracy levels approach 50%2. Colonias - small communities comprised of immigrants along the border - often lack basic necessities, such as electricity, plumbing, and safe housing. There are 958 registered colonias in ...
European Commission - Research & Innovation: Electric bacteria can purify sewage water - fast - Harnessing bacteria that produce electricity and break down organic waste, a European research project is developing a new, environmentally friendly way to purify sewage water in small communities.
Decentralized wastewater treatment systems can serve small communities and supply water suitable for reuse applications such as irrigation. An example of decentralized treatment is a sequencing batch membrane bioreactor (SBMBR), which treats small batches of wastewater and implements membrane filtration as a final treatment step. While treated effluent from the SBMBR is very high quality, high operating costs are a significant drawback. The following study examines energy optimization strategies to reduce operating costs of an SBMBR designed by Aqua- Aerobic Systems that treats water from Mines ...
I. Introduction to Spectrum Jerry Szoka and Grid Radio On July 30 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed a lower court order enjoining Jerry Szoka from operating a small community radio station in Cleveland, Ohio. Szoka, an obstreperous electrician, set up the station on his own, broadcasting at relatively low power, at the frequency of 96.9 Mhz. All of the workers volunteered. He called it Grid Radio 96.9 FM.. He does not have a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He did not seek a license. He just started broadcasting. And so, the government unleashed its lawyers to shut him down.. The problem for Mr. Szoka is that you just cant start broadcasting. Nor is there any place to go to buy or lease the right to broadcast. There is no system of property rights. The federal government owns all the airwaves. Spectrum, as it is often called, is controlled by a federal bureaucracy which licenses it "in the public interest.". It did not matter to the FCC that ...

Introduction: Low-cost community-based interventions to improve infant health potentially offer an exciting means of progressing toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, the feasibility of such interventions in low-income settings remains unclear. Bwindi Community Hospital (BCH), Uganda implemented a 3-year nurse-led community project to address child-health issues. Nurses supported Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) and visited mothers pre- and/or postnatally to assess and educate mothers and infants. CHVs gathered data and gave basic advice on health and hygiene to mothers. We hypothesized that increased interventions by nurses and CHVs and increased contact with households, would improve health and reduce infant mortality.Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study analyzing routine data of all children born between January 2015 and December 2016. There were three interventions: antenatal nurse visit, ...

Although screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) approaches are effective in reducing alcohol misuse and its associated risk-taking behaviors and negative consequences, there is little research demonstrating the effectiveness of SBIRT for illicit and/or prescription drug misuse. Misusers of illicit and/or prescription drugs frequently seek medical care in emergency departments (EDs), particularly for reasons related to their misuse. As a result, the ED is well suited as a site to conduct an analysis of the effectiveness of SBIRT for this population.. The Brief Intervention for Drug Misuse for the Emergency Department (BIDMED) study is a randomized, controlled, trial that will include adult ED patients at a large, academic, trauma center (Rhode Island Hospital) and a community hospital (The Miriam Hospital) who have a subcritical illness or injury and whose screening indicates illicit and/or prescription drug misuse. ...

To date, most candidates entering a PEM fellowship have had primary residency training in pediatrics, but now most available fellowships are accepting and actively interested in training EM residency graduates. The career opportunities for EM/PEM trained individuals are many and include academic and clinical positions. Most academic positions are located within tertiary care childrens hospitals but are often affiliated with EM residency programs. In addition, many EM residency training sites see patients of all ages in their EDs; therefore there is a need for EM/PEM trained EM faculty. Dual academic appointments in Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics are often possible. Many community hospitals have recently created pediatric specialty EDs within their larger EDs and are actively seeking EM/PEM trained individuals. Such a person can be an invaluable resource for a private EM group as well. ...
