A comparative analysis of surveyors from six hospital accreditation programmes and a consideration of the related management issues. (1/3457)

PURPOSE: To gather data on how accreditors manage surveyors, to compare these data and to offer them to the accreditors for improvement and to the scientific community for knowledge of the accreditation process and reinforcement of the credibility of these processes. DATA SOURCE: The data were gathered with the aid of a questionnaire sent to all accreditors participating in the study. RESULTS: An important finding in this comparative study is the different contractual relationships that exist between the accreditors and their surveyors. CONCLUSION: Surveyors around the world share many common features in terms of careers, training, work history and expectations. These similarities probably arise from the objectives of the accreditors who try to provide a developmental process to their clients rather than an 'inspection'.  (+info)

Class I integrons in Gram-negative isolates from different European hospitals and association with decreased susceptibility to multiple antibiotic compounds. (2/3457)

Class I integrons are associated with carriage of genes encoding resistance to antibiotics. Expression of inserted resistance genes within these structures can be poor and, as such, the clinical relevance in terms of the effect of integron carriage on susceptibility has not been investigated. Of 163 unrelated Gram-negative isolates randomly selected from the intensive care and surgical units of 14 different hospitals in nine European countries, 43.0% (70/163) of isolates were shown to be integron-positive, with inserted gene cassettes of various sizes. Integrons were detected in isolates from all hospitals with no particular geographical variations. Integron-positive isolates were statistically more likely to be resistant to aminoglycoside, quinolone and beta8-lactam compounds, including third-generation cephalosporins and monobactams, than integron-negative isolates. Integron-positive isolates were also more likely to be multi-resistant than integron-negative isolates. This association implicates integrons in multi-drug resistance either directly through carriage of specific resistance genes, or indirectly by virtue of linkage to other resistance determinants such as extended-spectrum beta-lactamase genes. As such their widespread presence is a cause for concern. There was no association between the presence of integrons and susceptibility to cefepime, amikacin and the carbapenems, to which at least 97% of isolates were fully susceptible.  (+info)

Comparison of large restriction fragments of Mycobacterium avium isolates recovered from AIDS and non-AIDS patients with those of isolates from potable water. (3/3457)

We examined potable water in Los Angeles, California, as a possible source of infection in AIDS and non-AIDS patients. Nontuberculous mycobacteria were recovered from 12 (92%) of 13 reservoirs, 45 (82%) of 55 homes, 31 (100%) of 31 commercial buildings, and 15 (100%) of 15 hospitals. Large-restriction-fragment (LRF) pattern analyses were done with AseI. The LRF patterns of Mycobacterium avium isolates recovered from potable water in three homes, two commercial buildings, one reservoir, and eight hospitals had varying degrees of relatedness to 19 clinical isolates recovered from 17 patients. The high number of M. avium isolates recovered from hospital water and their close relationship with clinical isolates suggests the potential threat of nosocomial spread. This study supports the possibility that potable water is a source for the acquisition of M. avium infections.  (+info)

Enhancing the identification of excessive drinkers on medical wards: a 1-year follow-up study. (4/3457)

This paper describes a 1-year follow-up study examining whether hospital ward doctors and nurses continue to take quantitative alcohol histories and provide brief intervention to problem drinkers on general medical wards after the introduction of a simple protocol. Regular training in the use of this protocol was stipulated in the annual service contract between the Health Authority and the Hospital Trusts. Improvements in staff practice persisted at 1-year follow-up, although it fell from a peak at an earlier phase of the study. The positive role of state purchasers of health services in sustaining improvements in clinical practice is discussed.  (+info)

Costs of high-dose salvage therapy and blood stem cell transplantation for resistant-relapsed malignant lymphomas in a southern Italian hospital. (5/3457)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Analysis of costs of high technological procedures such as peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) autotransplantation in lymphomas are generally finalized at disclosing whether the improvement of survival in a subset of patients is cost effective and whether the cost of the procedure could be reduced. With the aim of revealing a possibility of reducing costs with respect to conditions of safety, we present our experience with PBSC autotransplantation in a particularly poor prognosis subset of patients with lymphoma. DESIGN AND METHODS: The expenses are analyzed for groups of cost and main resources necessary at unitary cost are considered separately. Groups of cost include various phases of the PBSC autotransplantation such as preparative procedures, execution of myeloablative therapy, reinfusion of CD34 cells, supportive therapy after reinfusion until discharge of the patient, general support for the management of patient. All costs are calculated according to 1997 prices and salaries and reported in dollars. The analysis was conducted on 21 patients with lymphoma resistant to other therapies treated by myeloablative therapy and PBSC autotransplantation in an hematologic unit in an open ward; the assistance was provided by staff not exclusively dedicated to bone marrow transplant procedures, with some help from a family member. RESULTS: The PBSC procedure, including all phases, costs from $17,761.9 to $18,259.9 depending on the type of myeloablative therapy employed; the mean cost was $18,092.6. The preparative phase with mobilization of CD34 cells, cryopreservation and reinfusion costed $3,538.7 (19.6% of the total cost); a major cost of this phase was cryopreservation and CD34 manipulation ($857.1). The second phase with myeloablative therapy and reinfusion of CD34 cells had a mean cost of $2,785.9 (15.4% of the total cost); a major cost of this phase was the hospitalization ($1,119.8). The third phase of patient's support after treatment had a total cost of $7,649 (42.3% of the cost of the total procedure) with the major cost being due to hospitalization ($2,571) calculated on a mean of 15 days after the reinfusion of CD-34. The last group of costs, including management support, accounted for $4,119 (22.7%) with a major cost being amortization of the structure ($1,600). The general cost for nurse's assistance to the patient was $1,355.1 (7.5%). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: A procedure of PBSC autotransplantation in resistant lymphoma is affordable without the strict precautions generally given in intensive care units. This provides a substantial reduction of expenses because of the low number of specifically trained staff members and the generally low cost of the necessary supplies. Before, however, proposing PBSC autotransplantation in most patients with resistant lymphoma, an evaluation of whether costs could be further reduced and whether the procedure has a cost benefit impact is needed.  (+info)

Korean Nationwide Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance of bacteria in 1997. (6/3457)

Antimicrobial-resistant bacteria are known to be prevalent in tertiary-care hospitals in Korea. Twenty hospitals participated to this surveillance to determine the nationwide prevalence of resistance bacteria in 1997. Seven per cent and 26% of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae were resistant to 3rd-generation cephalosporin. Increased resistance rates, 19% of Acinetobacter baumannii to ampicillin/sulbactam, and 17% of Pseudomonas aeruginoa to imipenem, were noted. The resistance rate to fluoroquinolone rose to 24% in E. coli, 56% in A. baumannii and 42% in P. aeruginosa. Mean resistance rates were similar in all hospital groups: about 17% of P. aeruginosa to imipenem, 50% of Haemophilus influenzae to ampicillin, 70% of Staphylococcus aureus to methicillin, and 70% of pneumococci to penicillin. In conclusion, nosocomial pathogens and problem resistant organisms are prevalent in smaller hospitals too, indicating nosocomial spread is a significant cause of the increasing prevalence of resistant bacteria in Korea.  (+info)

Relation between hospital surgical volume and outcome for pancreatic resection for neoplasm in a publicly funded health care system. (7/3457)

BACKGROUND: Recent studies from the United States have shown that institutions with higher numbers of pancreatic resection procedures for neoplasm have lower mortality rates associated with this procedure. However, minimal work has been done to assess whether the results of similar volume-outcome studies within a publicly financed health care system would differ from those obtained in a mixed public-private health care system. METHODS: A population-based retrospective analysis was used to examine pancreatic resection for neoplasm in Ontario for the period 1988/89 to 1994/95. Outcomes examined included in-hospital case fatality rate and mean length of stay in hospital. For each hospital, total procedure volume for the study period was defined as low (fewer than 22), medium (22-42) or high (more than 42). Regression models were used to measure volume-outcome relations. RESULTS: The likelihood of postoperative death was higher in low-volume and medium-volume centres than in high-volume centres (odds ratio 5.1 and 4.5 respectively; p < 0.01 for both). Mean length of stay was greater in low- and medium-volume centres than in high-volume centres (by 7.7 and 9.2 days respectively, p < 0.01 for both). INTERPRETATION: This study adds to growing evidence that, for pancreatic resection for neoplasm, patients may have better outcomes if they are treated in high-volume hospitals rather than low-volume hospitals.  (+info)

Indigenous perceptions and quality of care of family planning services in Haiti. (8/3457)

This paper presents a method for evaluating and monitoring the quality of care of family planning services. The method was implemented in Haiti by International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR), the managerial agency for the Private Sector Family Planning Project (PSFPP), which is sponsored by the USAID Mission. The process consists of direct observations of family planning services and clinic conditions by trained Haitian housewives playing the role of 'mystery clients', who visit clinics on a random basis without prior notice. Observations conducted by mystery clients during one year, from April 1990 to April 1991, are presented and illustrate the use of the method. In addition, measurements for rating the acceptability of the services were developed, providing a quantitative assessment of the services based on mystery clients' terms. Statistical results demonstrate that simulated clients ranked some criteria of acceptability higher than others. These criteria are: the interaction provider/client, information adequacy, and competence of the promoter. Likewise, simulated clients' direct observations of the services permitted the identification of deficiencies regarding the quality of care such as the paternalistic attitudes of the medical staff; the lack of competence of promoters; and the lack of informed choice. Based on its reliability since its implementation in 1990 the method has proven to be a useful tool in programme design and monitoring.  (+info)

The CAHPS Hospital Survey (often referred to as HCAHPS or Hospital CAHPS) asks people to report on their recent experiences with inpatient care. There are two versions of this survey: one for adults and one for children. Both versions of the survey focus on aspects of hospital care that are important to patients. They also ask respondents to rate the hospital and indicate their willingness to recommend the hospital. The National Quality Forum has endorsed the CAHPS Hospital Survey as a measure of hospital quality.. ...

WOW!. This was some hot stuff!. THIS is the kind of data-presentation that needs to happen all the way around. Also one the reasons why businesses do well to have detailed, accurate graphs to show their business statistics. More to the point of: A picture is worth MORE than a thousand words. The tricky part: Making sure to get good, accurate data (which coming from the CDC and other health orgs, is less than trust-worthy).. Not only do we have the problem rising counts to contend with, but also the fact of the CDC now practically ordering various hospitals and other health agencies to classify MORE deaths as COVID-19 caused, even though there would be doubts as to COVID-19 being THE CAUSE - or just existing when the patient died! The CDC has seriously called into question the reliability of the new death statistics, under this new guideline on classifying causes of death.. NOW,.

Approximately half of patients admitted to hospitals will receive antibiotics. National antibiotic use patterns illustrate the potential for individual hospitals to curb prescribing of these drugs, an essential step in slowing the spread of resistance and avoiding adverse events. An analysis from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has uncovered worrisome trends in hospital prescribing; stewardship efforts should focus on reversing these trends.
When planning your healthcare survey or medical research survey, you will need to identify the group of patients that you would like to gather your data from. Because the target population (all patients that had a surgery in a particular hospital) can be very large, it can be cost prohibitive to gather data from all of them. In this case, it is common to take a sample of the total group and use it to generalize the findings to the target population. Continue reading →. ...

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. The proportion of patients undergoing revision procedures was significantly different between groups (5.2% in teaching hospitals vs 3.9% in nonteaching hospitals, p = 0.008). 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 significantly less likely to develop a complication when compared with patients treated at a nonteaching hospital (OR 0.89; 95% CI 0.82-0.98). The mortality rate was 0.4% in teaching hospitals and , 0.4% in nonteaching hospitals (p = 0.210). ...

Claims were examined from 22 708 patients undergoing CAS, with a crude 30-day mortality rate of 2.0%. Risk-standardized 30-day mortality rates after CAS varied from 1.1% to 5.1% (P,0.001 for the difference). Thirteen hospitals had risk-standardized mortality rates that were statistically (P,0.05) higher than the national mean. Conversely, 5 hospitals had risk-standardized mortality rates that were statistically (P,0.05) lower than the national mean.. ...

As patients move from acute-care facilities to LTPACs, the sharing of critical patient information and associated data is extremely important for coordinating care. But despite best efforts and intentions, many providers still arent sharing all patient data and information.. One local hospital uses faxes to accommodate HIPAA and be confidential, said one LTPAC CEO, forcing a manual method that stymies coordination. Almost everything we touch is obtuse. You have to search it out, figure it out, and confirm it by phone, adding that the absence of standardized forms and data-entry fields makes faxes especially inefficient.. Acute care providers share very little (7%) or some (35%) patient data with their post-acute care partners.. Only 16% of acute-care providers report sharing all patient data.. Most acute care providers share only the most critical data points.. ...
