Nurses and nursing in primary medical care in England. (1/595)

In 1974 we sent questionnaires on attachment and employment of nurses to 9214 general practices in England. There were 7863 replies (85%), of which 551 were excluded from the study. A total of 2654 nurses were directly employed by 24% (1774) of the practices, and 68% (4972) had attached nurses. Practices in health centres were larger and had greater nursing resources than those in other premises. We suggest that practices may employ nurses to compensate for ineffective nursing attachments, and we conclude that general-practice-employed nurses are becoming "professionalised".  (+info)

Regional organisational audit of district departments of public health. (3/595)

Organisational audit of public health in the United Kingdom is rare. To provide a framework for a structured organisational audit in district public health departments in one region organisational factors contributing to efficient, high quality work were identified and compared between districts, enabling each department to identify its organisational strengths and weaknesses. A draft list of organisational factors, based on the King's Fund organisational audit programme, were rated by 52 public health physicians and trainees in 12 district public health departments in South East Thames region for their importance on a scale of 0 (not relevant) to 5 (vital). Factors with average ratings of > 4, judged to be "vital" and proxies for standards, were then used to compare each district's actual performance, as reported by its director of public health in a self reported questionnaire. In all, 37 responses were received to the rating questionnaire (response rate 71%) and 12 responses to the directors' questionnaire. Of the 54 factors identified as vital factors, 20(37%) were achieved in all 12 districts and 16(30%) in all but one district; 18 were not being achieved by two (33%) districts or more. Overall, vital factors were not being achieved in 9% of cases. The authors concluded that most departments are achieving most vital organisational factors most of the time, but improvement is still possible. The results have been used as a basis for planning the organisation of public health departments in several of the newly formed commissioning agencies. This was the first regional audit of public health of its kind performed in the region and it provided valuable experience for planning future regional audit activity.  (+info)

Health human resource development in rural China. (4/595)

China has made significant progress in increasing the quantity of health workers in rural areas. Attention is shifting to improving the quality of health workers. This article documents several features of health workers in rural China. Many have not received formal training to a level implied by their rank and title, and there is no clear relationship between the skills of health workers and the functions they perform. Many better-qualified personnel have left lower level health facilities for more attractive employment in higher level and urban facilities. A system of professional licensing is currently being considered that will link educational requirements to employment and promotion. This article outlines some of the issues that should be taken into consideration in formulating this system. In particular, licensing may have unequal impacts on rich and poorer areas. This article argues that other regulatory measures will be necessary if licensing is to be an effective mechanism for controlling the quality of health workers, and contribute to the provision of affordable health services in both rich and poor areas.  (+info)

The impact of a simulated immunization registry on perceived childhood immunization status. (5/595)

We developed a simulated immunization registry to assess the impact on the perceived immunization status in a population-based sample of 2-year-olds living in Olmsted County, MN, in 1995. We compiled records of all immunizations by abstracting immunization data from all medical care facilities in the county. The data collected from each facility were analyzed separately to provide the immunization rate as perceived by each facility. This perceived rate was compared to the rate obtained by combining all recorded immunizations from all facilities (simulated registry). Information on children not receiving any carefrom facilities in Olmsted County was compiled from birth certificate data and community school lists. Data from the simulated registry indicated that 69.1% of all children in Olmsted County with medical records were up-to-date on their immunizations by 20 months of age. By 24 months, this increased to 74.2%. The immunization rate of 24-month-old children recorded at individual healthcare facilities in Olmsted County ranged from 24.3% to 79.5%. The addition of data from the simulated registry increased the immunization rate at each site: a 27.7% relative increase in the site with the lowest recorded immunization rate, a 14.0% increase in the site with the intermediate immunization rate, and a 6.9% increase in the site with the highest internally perceived immunization rate. The registry also identified excess immunizations in 5% of the county's 2-year-olds. Each healthcare facility in this community gained an immediate benefit from the development of a simulated immunization registry. This immediate improvement in one quality-of-care measure (up-to-date immunization rate) should be factored into the cost/benefit assessment of immunization registries.  (+info)

Management of maple syrup urine disease in Canada. Committee for improvement of Hereditary Disease Management. (6/595)

Nine patients with classic maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) and four with variant forms are under care at five treatment centres in the network affiliated with the National Food Distribution Centre for the Treatment of Hereditary Metabolic Diseases (the "Food Bank"). Diagnosis was made by clinicians and not from mass screening programs. MSUD requires complex emergency treatment to prevent severe neurologic damage, but effective management is compatible with normal growth and development. Long-term treatment requires continuous monitoring of the response to diets restricted in branched-chain amino acids; semisynthetic diet products free of branched-chain amino acids, provided by the Food Bank, are essential. Centralized treatment programs reduce the cost of treatment and maximize the potential benefits. The leucine requirement for adequate somatic growth during infancy in MSUD was found to be 200 to 600 mg/d; this range is lower than that estimated for infants with an intact leucine catabolic outflow pathway. The requirements for isoleucine and valine in infancy were also found to be lower than published values for normal infants.  (+info)

Experience measuring performance improvement in multiphase picture archiving and communications systems implementations. (7/595)

When planning a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) implementation and determining which equipment will be implemented in earlier and later phases, collection and analysis of selected data will aid in setting implementation priorities. If baseline data are acquired relative to performance objectives, the same information used for implementation planning can be used to measure performance improvement and outcomes. The main categories of data to choose from are: (1) financial data; (2) productivity data; (3) operational parameters; (4) clinical data; and (5) information about customer satisfaction. In the authors' experience, detailed workflow data have not proved valuable in measuring PACS performance and outcomes. Reviewing only one category of data in planning will not provide adequate basis for targeting operational improvements that will lead to the most significant gains. Quality improvement takes into account all factors in production: human capacity, materials, operating capital and assets. Once we have identified key areas of focus for quality improvement in each phase, we can translate objectives into implementation requirements and finally into detailed functional and performance requirements. Here, Integration Resources reports its experience measuring PACS performance relative to phased implementation strategies for three large medical centers. Each medical center had its own objectives for overcoming image management, physical/geographical, and functional/technical barriers. The report outlines (1) principal financial and nonfinancial measures used as performance indicators; (2) implementation strategies chosen by each of the three medical centers; and (3) the results of those strategies as compared with baseline data.  (+info)

Health-care facility choice and the phenomenon of bypassing. (8/595)

Health policy-makers in developing countries are often disturbed and to a degree surprised by the phenomenon of the ill travelling past a free or subsidized local public clinic (or other public facility) to get to an alternative source of care at which they often pay a considerable amount for health care. That a person bypasses a facility is almost certainly indicative either of significant problems with the quality of care at the bypassed facility or of significantly better care at the alternative source of care chosen. When it is a poor person choosing to bypass a free public facility and pay for care further away, such action is especially bothersome to public policy-makers. This paper uses a unique data set, with a health facility survey in which all health facilities are identified, surveyed, and located geographically; and a household survey in which a sample of households from the same health district is also both surveyed and located geographically. The data are analyzed to examine patterns of health care choice related to the characteristics and locations of both the facilities and actual and potential clients. Rather than using the distance travelled or some other general choice of type of care variable as the dependent variable, we are able actually to analyze which specific facilities are bypassed and which chosen. The findings are instructive. That bypassing behaviour is not very different across income groups is certainly noteworthy, as is the fact that the more severely ill tend to bypass and to travel further for care than do the less severely ill. In multivariate analysis almost all characteristics of both providers and facilities are found to have the a priori expected relationships to facility choice. Prices tend to deter use, and improved quality of services to increase the likelihood of a facility being chosen. The answer to the bypassing dilemma seems to be for providers to provide as good quality care relative to the money charged (if any), as other, often further away, providers.  (+info)

The bill would authorize a healthcare facility to reasonably restrict the manner in which a patient stores and uses medical cannabis to ensure the safety of other patients, guests, and employees of the healthcare facility, including requiring the medical cannabis to be stored in a locked container. Smoked or vaped cannabis is expressly prohibited. The bill language provides the necessary authority for hospitals to implement this policy while ensuring the safety of other patients, medical staff and guests of the facility. It also provides a safe harbor clause allowing healthcare facilities to suspend the program if there is federal intervention.. Ryans Law offers relief, compassion and dignity to Californians during the most vulnerable time of their lives, said Sen. Hueso. This is a simple but critical step that will have an abundance of benefits to ensure access to compassion and pain management for terminally-ill patients in California..

In 1997, a survey program was initiated to analyze the impact of the DISH project in Uganda. The program consisted of the 1997 household and health facility surveys, the 1999 household and health facility surveys, and the 2002 facility survey.. In 2002, a facility survey was administered to assess the DISH project and the population data from the 2000-2001 DHS took place of a household survey. In addition to a facility assessment survey, observation studies were also done for antenatal and curative child care services. 316 facilities were surveyed and 887 observations of client-provider interaction were completed.. ...
In the past two National Electrical Code (NEC) cycles, there have been substantial changes in Article 517 dealing with healthcare facilities. While there were some changes in the 2014 NEC, the majority of changes occurred in the 2017 NEC and are based on changes in NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code. Many of the changes in the NEC relate to definitions that ultimately shape the methods of dealing with healthcare and patients. Examining these definitions will give an insight into the direction for healthcare-related occupancies now and in the future. One of the new definitions that applies to governing bodies (previously used in an informational note describing the authority for determining patient-care spaces but undefined) is the person or persons who have the overall legal responsibility for the operation of a health care facility. This definition now properly provides the designer and contractor with the entity responsible for the hospital, clinic or other healthcare facility. Invasive ...

Healthcare facilities are comprised of complex building systems and patient care systems where the modification of one component can affect the overall cohesiveness of the building system and can result in situations which can endanger patients. Addressing issues under these conditions requires a comprehensive understanding of these systems and their relationships with each other. Furthermore, due to the fact that healthcare facility occupants can include immunocompromised individuals, individuals with infectious diseases and other high risk groups, any work or testing becomes more critical. Enviro Team North America has the knowledge, experience, and equipment to properly address a variety of building and indoor air quality related issues.

In a sample of patients with breast cancer who reported having received a screening mammogram within 1 or 2 years of their breast cancer detection, non-Hispanic black and Hispanic women were more likely than non-Hispanic whites to report symptomatic awareness which prompted the detection of their breast cancer. Both tumor biologic factors and healthcare facility characteristics were associated with SADRS, and tumor biologic factors and healthcare facility characteristics together accounted for roughly two-thirds of the racial/ethnic disparity in SADRS. The definition of SADRS used here is similar to the definition of interval breast cancer except that our results are based on patient self-reports, whereas interval breast cancer is typically defined from medical records or other sources of documentation. Here, patients reported how they came to discover their breast cancer and their mammography use before becoming aware of the problem later diagnosed as breast cancer. In addition to a missed ...

We can create a third path. We can decide to meet this challenge head on. It is absolutely within our capacity to do so. We could develop tests that are fast, reliable, and ubiquitous. If we screen everyone, and do so regularly, we can let most people return to a more normal life. We can reopen schools and places where people gather. If we can be assured that the people who congregate arent infectious, they can socialize.. We can build health-care facilities that do rapid screening and care for people who are infected, apart from those who are not. This will prevent transmission from one sick person to another in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. We can even commit to housing infected people apart from their healthy family members, to prevent transmission in households. ...

Abstract Reducing barriers associated with maternal health service use, household water treatment, and improved hygiene is important for maternal and neonatal health outcomes. We surveyed a sample of 201 pregnant women who participated in a clinic-based intervention in Kenya to increase maternal health service use and improve household hygiene and nutrition through the distribution of water treatment products, soap, protein-fortified flour, and clean delivery kits. From multivariable logistic regression analyses, the adjusted odds of ≥ 4 antenatal care (ANC4+) visits (odds ratio [OR] = 3.0, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.9-4.5), health facility delivery (OR = 5.3, 95% CI = 3.4-8.3), and any postnatal care visit (OR = 2.8, 95% CI = 1.9-4.2) were higher at follow-up than at baseline, adjusting for demographic factors. Women who completed primary school had higher odds of ANC4+ visits (OR = 1.8, 95% CI = 1.1-2.9) and health facility delivery (OR = 4.2, 95% CI = 2.5-7.1) than women with less education.
Background: There are several barriers for pregnant women to deliver in a health care facility. This prospective cohort study investigated factors affecting facility delivery and reasons for unplanned place of delivery after implementation of the safer mother programme in Nepal. Methods: Baseline interviews using a validated questionnaire were conducted on a sample of 700 pregnant women representative of the Kaski district in central Nepal. Follow-up interviews of the cohort were then conducted within 45 days postpartum. Stepwise logistic regression analysis was performed to determine factors associated with the facility delivery outcome. Results: Of the 644 pregnant women whose delivery location had been identified, 547 (85%) gave birth in a health care facility. Women were more likely to deliver in a health facility if they were educated especially with higher secondary or above qualification (adjusted odds ratio (OR) 12.39, 95% confidence interval (CI) 5.09 to 30.17), attended 4 or more ...
Provides the basis for coding and billing. Healthcare facilities and healthcare professionals have many options available to them to document the patient- healthcare professional encounter to create patient medical records. However outsourced medical transcription services have been found to be the most preferred, cost- effective, versatile and convenient option for documenting the care process. Medical transcription services also have the additional advantage of being able to seamlessly integrating into the working style of healthcare professionals and healthcare facility operations.. How do outsourced medical transcription vendors seamlessly integrate with the operations of healthcare facilities?. No change in working style: Healthcare professionals are starved for time and adapting to new styles of capturing information could result in loss of productivity or even result in errors. These service providers are fully aware of the pressures of healthcare professionals and have made it convenient ...
Section 7 of the RH Law requires all public health facilities to provide the full range of family planning services. This is also required of private health facilities, except in the case of non-maternity specialty hospitals and those operated by religious groups. The latter hospitals are, however, required to immediately refer the person seeking such services to the nearest health care facility that will do the task. Thus, Section 7 provides:. Section 7. Access to Family Planning. - All accredited public health facilities shall provide a full range of modem family planning methods, which shall also include medical consultations, supplies and necessary and reasonable procedures for poor and marginalized couples having infertility issues who desire to have children: Provided, That family planning services shali likewise be extended by private health facilities to paying patients with the option to grant free care and services to indigents, except in the case of non-maternity specialty hospitals ...

Our findings highlight that, as of 2004, most health facilities had external supervision within the last 6 months; however, key facility-level management practices were lacking across all types of government-owned health facilities (hospital, rural health units, and MCH/urban health units) in Egypt. During this time before the current MOHP, less than half of the health facilities reported having a regular management committee meeting at least monthly. Less than one third of facilities reported having any quality assurance systems. Such management systems have been shown to be associated with better quality care [15, 16] and can be particularly meaningful in translating new policies for health care improvement into practice. Although external supervision from the MOHP can be helpful, without internal management meetings, it is unlikely that facilities will adapt well to the increasing health services demands of a growing economy and aging population. These results reflect substantial needs for ...
There are many potential sources for obtaining the geographical coordinates of health facilities: Ministry of Health or Planning, the Central Statistics Office , the Department of Land Surveys, University geographic departments, or other institutions. Where coordinates on each individual health facility may not be available, the coordinates of the nearest village may be. Coordinates of the villages would be sufficient to start development of the GIS database.. If geographical coordinates for the health facilities are not available, it may be possible to approximate them by identifying their position on existing maps. These maps need to be sufficiently detailed to include village names and positions. They may be obtainable from the relevant ministry or Government department.. Using these maps, LEP will endeavor to digitize the position of the health facilities on a computer. In some countries, it may be possible for unmapped health facilities (i.e. those for which the geographical coordinates are ...

From September 2 through November 30, 2013, we enrolled 175 health facilities; 130(74%) were private and 45(26%) were public. Of the 175 health facilities, 77 (44%) facilities classified as adequate reporting and 98 (56%) were reporting poorly. Multivariate analysis identified three factors to be independently associated with weekly adequate reporting: having weekly reporting forms at visit (AOR19, 95% CI: 6-65], having posters showing IDSR functions (AOR8, 95% CI: 2-12) and having a designated surveillance focal person (AOR7, 95% CI: 2-20 ...
The Ministry of Health and National Medical Stores conduct the Essential Medicines Kit revision and Procurement planning processes for lower level facilities (HC2 and HC3) and higher levels (HCIVs and hospitals, GHs, RRHs, NRIs and NRHs) respectively annually in line with the NMS Act Cap 207. However, over the past financial years, anecdotal reports of the EM kit revision and procurement planning processes have shown; a) differences in commodity consumption amongst facilities at the same level of care; (b) Lack of up to date stock data during meetings and therefore, skewed estimates of demand of products; and (c) Budget inadequacies resulting in under-quantification. These limitations made the quantification process a less effective one to predict actual demand of essential medicines for the country.. ...
The study is a randomized trial to compare ART delivery through two different models: a) ART delivered through health facilities by clinically qualified staff and b) home-based care in which lay workers, i.e. non-medically qualified people, play a major role in the ART delivery and clients are followed up at health facilities less frequently. The primary objective is to measure the effects of these strategies on plasma HIV viral load. We will also examine the effects on treatment failure, disease progression, survival, adherence, family member HIV testing, sexual behavior, and cost-effectiveness.. The trial is conducted with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) clinic in Jinja, Uganda. Randomization is conducted through geographic clusters, defined using sub-counties in the district, and stratified by distance from fixed health facilities, and urban/rural. Just over 800 participants, living in 40 clusters, will be recruited over a period of 3-6 months and followed-up over a period of 3 years. ...

In the Analysis of accessibility to health care, two factors are considered, namely; physical accessibility and socio-economic accessibility. Physical accessibility takes into account the time spent and the distance covered to get to a health facility. It also considers the distribution of the health facilities in the District.. The survey estimated an average of two hours to access a health facility in the District. This obviously is not a good situation compared to the acceptable time of 30 minutes in Ghana. This can be attributed to the poor road network in the District and the inadequate means of transport. in some cases, non-motorised means of transport like bicycles are used to transport patients to health facilities.. In terms of economic accessibility, the ability of people to pay for health service was the major consideration. By the introduction of the Mutual Health Insurance Scheme, economic accessibility to health care is quite high in the District. OPD attendance has increased from ...

BACKGROUND: With many medical equipment in hospitals coming in direct contact with healthcare workers, patients, technicians, cleaners and sometimes care givers, it is important to pay close attention to their capacity in harboring potentially harmful pathogens. The goal of this study was to assess the role that medical equipment may potentially play in hospital acquired infections in four public health facilities in Uganda. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted from December 2017 to January 2018 in four public health facilities in Uganda. Each piece of equipment from the neonatal department, imaging department or operating theatre were swabbed at three distinct points: a location in contact with the patient, a location in contact with the user, and a remote location unlikely to be contacted by either the patient or the user. The swabs were analyzed for bacterial growth using standard microbiological methods. Seventeen bacterial isolates were randomly selected and tested for ...
