Reliability of a hospital utilization review method in Turkey. (1/2039)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the Appropriateness Evaluation Protocol (AEP) is reliable in Turkey. METHODS: Three reviewers, two physicians and one nurse each reviewed 196 patient-days concurrently by using the AEP at three hospitals, two of which were teaching hospitals. Inter-reviewer reliability was assessed both for all cases reviewed (overall agreement), and for only those judged inappropriate by at least one reviewer (specific agreement). In addition, overall agreement between pairs of reviewers was evaluated by the Kappa statistic. RESULTS: The overall agreement between pairs of reviewers was very high: 93.4-95.9%, and it was similar between all pairs. The level of overall agreement was highly statistically significant: k=0.725-0.833, P<0.001. The specific agreement rates ranged from a low of 61.8% to a high of 75%. CONCLUSIONS: These results show, for the first time, that the AEP method is reliable in Turkey.  (+info)

Changing susceptibilities of coagulase-negative staphylococci to teicoplanin in a teaching hospital. (2/2039)

The susceptibility of two collections of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) isolated from clinical specimens for teicoplanin and vancomycin were compared. They comprised 91 and 101 isolates, collected in 1985 and 1994 respectively, from different departments of a teaching hospital. MICs of vancomycin and teicoplanin were determined by a modified Etest method. Additionally, a disc diffusion test was performed for teicoplanin. All isolates were susceptible to vancomycin (MIC < or = 4 mg/L). Two of the 91 isolates collected in 1985 were intermediate to teicoplanin (MIC between 8 and 32 mg/L), whereas in 1994 the number of intermediate isolates was 20 out of 101 (P < 0.01). The correlation between MICs, as determined by the modified Etest assay, and disc diffusion zones was poor (r = -0.35). Results show that resistance to teicoplanin in CNS has increased in the study hospital over a period of 9 years. This increase is likely to be correlated with the introduction of teicoplanin. Furthermore, a disc diffusion method does not appear to be the first method of choice for detection of strains of CNS with diminished susceptibility to teicoplanin.  (+info)

Dictated versus database-generated discharge summaries: a randomized clinical trial. (3/2039)

BACKGROUND: Hospital discharge summaries communicate information necessary for continuing patient care. They are most commonly generated by voice dictation and are often of poor quality. The objective of this study was to compare discharge summaries created by voice dictation with those generated from a clinical database. METHODS: A randomized clinical trial was performed in which discharge summaries for patients discharged from a general internal medicine service at a tertiary care teaching hospital in Ottawa were created by voice dictation (151 patients) or from a database (142 patients). Patients had been admitted between September 1996 and June 1997. The trial was preceded by a baseline cohort study in which all summaries were created by dictation. For the database group, information on forms completed by housestaff was entered into a database and collated into a discharge summary. For the dictation group, housestaff dictated narrative letters. The proportion of patients for whom a summary was generated within 4 weeks of discharge was recorded. Physicians receiving the summary rated its quality, completeness, organization and timeliness on a 100-mm visual analogue scale. Housestaff preference was also determined. RESULTS: Patients in the database group and the dictation group were similar. A summary was much more likely to be generated within 4 weeks of discharge for patients in the database group than for those in the dictation group (113 [79.6%] v. 86 [57.0%]; p < 0.001). Summary quality was similar (mean rating 72.7 [standard deviation (SD) 19.3] v. 74.9 [SD 16.6]), as were assessments of completeness (73.4 [SD 19.8] v. 78.2 [SD 14.9]), organization (77.4 [SD 16.3] v. 79.3 [SD 17.2]) and timeliness (70.3 [SD 21.9] v. 66.2 [SD 25.6]). Many information items of interest were more likely to be included in the database-generated summaries. The database system created summaries faster and was preferred by housestaff. Dictated summaries in the baseline and randomized studies were similar, which indicated that the control group was not substantially different from the baseline cohort. INTERPRETATION: The database system significantly increased the likelihood that a discharge summary was created. Housestaff preferred the database system for summary generation. Physicians thought that the quality of summaries generated by the 2 methods was similar. The use of computer databases to create hospital discharge summaries is promising and merits further study and refinement.  (+info)

Safe working practices and HIV infection: knowledge, attitudes, perception of risk, and policy in hospital. (4/2039)

OBJECTIVES--To assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of risk of occupational HIV transmission in hospital in relation to existing guidelines. DESIGN--Cross sectional anonymous questionnaire survey of all occupational groups. SETTING--One large inner city teaching hospital. SUBJECTS--All 1530 staff working in the hospital in October 1991 and 22 managers. MAIN MEASURES--Knowledge of safe working practices and hospital guidelines; attitudes towards patients with AIDS; perception of risk of occupational transmission of HIV; availability of guidelines. RESULTS--The response rate in the questionnaire survey was 63% (958/1530). Although staff across all occupational groups knew of the potential risk of infection from needlestick injury (98%, 904/922), significantly more non-clinical staff (ambulance, catering, and domestic staff) than clinical staff (doctors, nurses, and paramedics) thought HIV could be transmitted by giving blood (38%, 153/404 v 12%, 40/346; chi 2 = 66.1 p < 0.001); one in ten clinical staff believed this. Except for midwives, half of staff in most occupational groups and 19% (17/91) of doctors and 22% (28/125) of nurses thought gloves should be worn in all contacts with people with AIDS. Most staff (62%, 593/958), including 38% (36/94) of doctors and 52% (67/128) of nurses thought patients should be routinely tested on admission, 17% of doctors and 19% of nurses thought they should be isolated in hospital. One in three staff perceived themselves at risk of HIV. Midwives, nurses, and theatre technicians were most aware of guidelines for safe working compared with only half of doctors, ambulance, and paramedical staff and no incinerator staff. CONCLUSIONS--Policy guidelines for safe working practices for patients with HIV infection and AIDS need to be disseminated across all occupational groups to reduce negative staff attitudes, improve knowledge of occupational transmission, establish an appropriate perception of risk, and create a supportive and caring hospital environment for people with HIV. IMPLICATIONS--Managers need to disseminate policy guidelines and information to all staff on an ongoing basis.  (+info)

Hospital pharmacists' participation in audit in the United Kingdom. (5/2039)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate systematically participation in audit of NHS hospital pharmacists in the United Kingdom. DESIGN: Questionnaire census survey. SETTING: All NHS hospital pharmacies in the UK providing clinical pharmacy services. SUBJECTS: 462 hospital pharmacies. MAIN MEASURES: Extent and nature of participation in medical, clinical, and pharmacy audits according to hospital management and teaching status, educational level and specialisation of pharmacists, and perceived availability of resources. RESULTS: 416 questionnaires were returned (response rate 90%). Pharmacists contributed to medical audit in 50% (204/410) of hospitals, pharmacy audit in 27% (108/404), and clinical audit in only 7% (29/404). Many pharmacies (59% (235/399)) were involved in one or more types of audit but few (4%, (15/399)) in all three. Participation increased in medical and pharmacy audits with trust status (medical audit: 57% (65/115) trust hospital v 47% (132/281) non-trust hospital; pharmacy audit: 34% (39/114) v 24% (65/276)) and teaching status (medical audit: 58% (60/104) teaching hospital v 47% (130/279) non-teaching hospital; pharmacy audit 30% (31/104) v 25% (68/273)) and similarly for highly qualified pharmacists (MPhil or PhD, MSc, diplomas) (medical audit: 54% (163/302) with these qualifications v 38% (39/103) without; pharmacy audit: 32% (95/298) v 13% (13/102)) and specialists pharmacists (medical audit: 61% (112/184) specialist v 41% (90/221) non-specialist; pharmacy audit: 37% (67/182) v 19% (41/218)). Pharmacies contributing to medical audit commonly provided financial information on drug use (86% 169/197). Pharmacy audits often concentrated on audit of clinical pharmacy services. CONCLUSION: Pharmacists are beginning to participate in the critical evaluation of health care, mainly in medical audit.  (+info)

Evidence for validity of a health status measure in assessing short term outcomes of cholecystectomy. (6/2039)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the validity of the Nottingham health profile (NHP) as an indicator of short term outcome of cholecystectomy. DESIGN: Prospective assessment of outcome. SETTING: One teaching hospital. Patients--161 consecutive patients admitted for cholecystectomy between January 1989 and September 1990. MAIN MEASURES: Patients' reported symptoms and self assessed NHP scores before cholecystectomy and at follow up at three and 12 months (76 patients); assessment before admission (19). RESULTS: Complete data were obtained preoperatively and at three months' follow up from 154 patients; seven did not respond to the follow up questionnaire. 76/84(90%) patients in the study 12 months or more answered the 12 month follow up questionnaire; eight did not respond. Significant changes in score before and at three months after the operation were observed for four of the six dimensions: energy (35.34 v 19.53, p < 0.0001), pain (27.38 v 9.8, p < 0.0001), sleep (26.99 v 17.51, p = 0.0002), and emotional reactions (16.12 v 7.56, p = 0.001). The mean scores for 76 patients followed up at three and 12 months showed little subsequent change. Scores in readmitted patients were all significantly higher, suggesting poor health. Patients with five reported symptoms had significantly worse scores for all dimensions. Scores were similar before cholecystectomy whether the questionnaire was completed before or after admission. CONCLUSION: The NHP is an appropriate tool for monitoring changes in health after cholecystectomy.  (+info)

Improving management of asthma: closing the loop or progressing along the audit spiral? (7/2039)

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether the management of asthma has improved from three consecutive surveys. DESIGN: Retrospective case note survey of acute asthma admissions in 1983 and 1989; case notes selected from 1985-6 survey of prospectively identified patients to include only patients with a final discharge code of asthma. SETTING: A large city teaching hospital. Patients--101 patients with acute asthma as the primary diagnosis in 1983; 85 in 1985-6; and 133 in 1989, 14 of whom were subsequently transferred elsewhere. MAIN MEASURES: Conformity with a checklist of important aspects of the process of asthma management including initial assessment, treatment, supervision, and discharge and review arrangements. RESULTS: All patient groups were similar in age, smoking habit, and stay in hospital and, as an objective guide to severity of asthma, had similar initial pulse rates. Major improvements occurred in management: by 1989, 119(90%) patients were treated with oral corticosteroids (69(68%), 67(79%) in 1983, 1985-6 respectively) and 109(82%) with oxygen (62(61%), 51(60%)) (both p < 0.001). 114(86%) had regular recording of peak flow measurements (53(52%), 54(64%); p < 0.001), and 103/119(86%) were discharged taking oral corticosteroids (66(65%), 63(74%); p < 0.01). Significantly fewer patients, however, had their regular inhaled corticosteroid treatment increased on discharge (38/119(32%) v 53(52%), 39(46%); p < 0.01), but more were receiving high dose inhaled treatment on admission. CONCLUSIONS: The management of asthma improved significantly, and the normal practice of doctors has changed in an area of practice with longstanding problems.  (+info)

Lack of knowledge in health professionals: a barrier to providing information to patients? (8/2039)

OBJECTIVE: To assess obstetricians' and midwives' knowledge of routine prenatal screening tests for fetal abnormality and factors associated with such knowledge. DESIGN: Questionnaire assessment of antenatal clinic staff. SETTING: Six hospitals within the United Kingdom (four district general hospitals in London, one district general hospital in Wales, and one teaching hospital in Wales), offering routine prenatal screening tests. SUBJECTS: 29 obstetricians and 97 midwives were invited to participate, of whom 21 and 70 respectively responded to the questionnaire. MAIN MEASURES: Knowledge of prenatal tests, according to 19 item multiple choice questionnaire, reluctance to disclose uncertainty, and clinical experience. RESULTS: The overall response rate was 72% (91/126). In all, 43% of midwives and 14% of obstetricians obtained correct responses on fewer than half the items. Reluctance to disclose uncertainty to patients was associated in obstetricians with having less knowledge about prenatal testing (r = -0.50; p < 0.025, Pearson product moment correlation) and in midwives with more clinical experience (r = 0.43; p < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Lack of knowledge and greater clinical experience seem to be important barriers to providing patients with information about prenatal screening tests.  (+info)

Ruhee Chaudhry and colleagues suggest that treatment at teaching hospitals rather than community hospitals may be advantageous for women with small breast tumours.1 I suggest that the reason women treated at teaching centres live longer than those treated at community hospitals has more to do with differences in the patient populations than with differences in the quality of treatment at the 2 types of hospitals. ...

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). ...

I read with interest some of the stories regarding surgical internship and residency and unfortunately it doesnt seem that this topic has touched upon the issue of surgical intervention by surgeons when non surgical intervention may be just as viable I practiced medicine in San Francisco for years as an endocrinologist and one day I fell walking my dog down a steep hill. I immediately consulted with the chief of orthopedic surgery at a major teaching hospital regarding an isolated fibular fracture(bimalleolar). Immediately she said she would get me in for screws and a plate the next morning since she recognized me. After looking at the film and the extent of the fracture, I went for a second opinion where we decided to proceed with ultrasound and after 9 weeks of intensive treatment and a boot, the imaging showed correct alignment and proper healing of the bone.

Itd be wrong for me to suggest to commissioners how to do their job. I have met very few commissioners, or indeed managers in health or social care. When I was a junior doctor at major teaching hospitals in Cambridgeshire and London, I had met none in fact. I think living with a condition, and knowing how to prepare for a good death when the time comes, are positive things - overmedicalising someone emphasising illness overly, at the expense of appreciating personhood, is not helpful?. I perceive increasing dementia awareness as very important, in fact. I included a section on the Dementia Friends programme, delivered by the Alzheimers Society and Public Health England, in my second book on dementia (Living better with dementia: good practice and innovation for the future); my first book, based on the NICE QS30 standard for promoting wellbeing in dementia, won best book of the year award for health and social care for the BMJ Book Awards in 2015 (click here to download the pamphlet on ...

Current use of fetal tissue. From 1994 to 2002, 19 separate biomedical researchers at 12 separate Australian institutions (four universities, six major teaching hospitals and two research institutes) used human fetal tissue in their research. The actual tissues used (detailed in Box 2) were determined by the individual research projects. In 1994, eye tissue made up nearly half of the distributed tissue. There was an increase in the use of bone/cartilage during 1996-2001, kidneys during 1996-1999, and liver and spinal cord over the past 4 years.. From 1994 to 2002, the tissue was used exclusively for biomedical research. In the previous decade, it was also used for therapeutic purposes,3 in an attempt to replenish ß cells in people with type 1 diabetes.6 These trials, which demonstrated survival but not function of the grafts, were discontinued as supply of second trimester tissue was limited. The research projects for which human fetal tissues were used included tissue development, mechanism of ...

Find out if you live anywhere near a community or teaching hospital. They should be able to treat you for low cost or free if you are unable to pay. If you are anywhere near a teaching hospital, that is, a hospital that has medical residents they are often community hospitals. You can talk to someone first in admissions or billing about working something out. Because teaching hospitals have medical residents, they have teams who work together and might work collaboratively on your case. Medical residents are licensed doctors, but they have to complete a certain number of hours of hospital work under supervision before they can function as doctors independently. This is often a way for people to get good quality medical care with the latest medical knowledge for a lower price or free. I know this because I know medical residents working at community teaching hospitals in major cities. They treat people all the time who cannot pay ...
Background: Adverse events (AEs) are adverse outcomes caused by medical care. Several studies have indicated that a substantial number of patients experience AEs before or during hospitalization. However, few data describe AEs after hospital discharge. We determined the incidence, severity, preventability and ameliorability of AEs in patients discharged from the general internal medicine service of a Canadian hospital. Methods: At a multisite Canadian teaching hospital, we prospectively studied patients who were consecutively discharged home or to a seniors residence from the general internal medicine service during a 14-week interval in 2002. We used telephone interview and chart review to identify outcomes after discharge. Two physicians independently reviewed each outcome to determine if the patient experienced an AE. The severity, preventability and ameliorability of all AEs were classified. Results: During the study period, outcomes were determined for 328 of the 361 eligible patients, who ...

Dr Sean OKelly, medical director UH Bristol, says: Our consistently higher than expected survival rates over the past three years are an indication of our constant focus on providing high standards of safety and quality of care to our patients seven days a week. Care out of hours and on weekends is as important as the care patients receive during the week and I am particularly pleased that our emergency readmission rates for patients treated on weekdays and weekends is lower than expected.. However, we ...
A study by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) found that in 2011, sedatives and hypnotics were a leading source for adverse drug events seen in the hospital setting. Approximately 2.8% of all ADEs present on admission and 4.4% of ADEs that originated during a hospital stay were caused by a sedative or hypnotic drug.[23] A second study by AHRQ found that in 2011, the most common specifically identified causes of adverse drug events that originated during hospital stays in the U.S. were steroids, antibiotics, opiates/narcotics, and anticoagulants. Patients treated in urban teaching hospitals had higher rates of ADEs involving antibiotics and opiates/narcotics compared to those treated in urban nonteaching hospitals. Those treated in private, nonprofit hospitals had higher rates of most ADE causes compared to patients treated in public or private, for-profit hospitals.[24]. In the U.S., females had a higher rate of ADEs involving opiates and narcotics than males in 2011, while ...

Background: Appropriate drug utilization has a huge contribution to global reduction in morbidity and mortality. While thousands of patients have been wrongly prescribed statins, others at high risk of cardiovascular accidents (CVA) have been deprived of treatment. According to the Adult Treatment Panel fourth guidelines (ATP IV), prescription of Lipid Lowering Drugs (LLDs) should not only be based on cholesterol but also on other Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) risk factors. Methods: A cross sectional design was applied to 140 files of patients at clinic 5 (medical clinic) of the Adult University Teaching Hospital (Adult UTH) and it aimed to determine whether the prescribing patterns of LLDs were in conformity with the ATP IV guidelines. This sample size was based on a 10% (0.1) estimated prevalence of prescriptions containing LLDs in line with the 2014 WHO country profile on Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which accounted for 23% death estimates in Zambia out of which 8% were ...
up and heads the Bioresources Development and Conservation Programme, led the research.. It started 10 years ago, when researchers were led to the plant by traditional native healers who have used the plant for the treatment of infectious diseases for centuries. This is a very exciting discovery, said Dr Iwu, who himself comes originally from a family of traditional healers. The same forest that yields the dreaded Ebola virus could be a source of the cure. The Nigerian researchers claim they are a step closer to a universally accepted cure for Ebola virus, Dengue fever and leishmaniasis. They claim that the herbal preparation has also been successfully used, in clinical studies, to treat hepatitis B and C, cancer, diabetes and tuberculosis. The researchers from Halamin Herbal centre, 10 George Innih Crescent, Apo District, Abuja and Department of Histopathology and Cytology, Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Jos, Plateau State, found that the poly herbal preparations- DAABS2 and ...
Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) strains is one of the most important community-acquired infections in the world. The presence of virulence factors is closely related with the pathogenesis of UTI. Methods: The present study was conducted on 150 isolates of UPEC obtained from symptomatic and asymptomatic cases of UTIs with significant counts (≥105 CFU/ml) during 1 year. UPEC isolates were studied for hemolysis on 5% sheep blood agar, mannose-sensitive hemagglutination (MSHA), mannose-resistant hemagglutination (MRHA), and biofilm formation by recommended methods. Patients with UTI due to UPEC showing virulence factors were evaluated for the treatment received and the outcome of treatment. These were compared with the outcomes of patients whose culture samples grew UPEC without demonstrable virulence factors. Results: The study showed hemolysin production in 40% of the isolates. Forty percent of the isolates showed the presence of P ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnosing acute myocardial infarction with troponins: how low can you go?. AU - Body, R. AU - McDowell, Garry. AU - Carley, S. AU - Ferguson, J. AU - Mackway-Jones, K. PY - 2010. Y1 - 2010. N2 - Background Recent consensus guidelines state that acute myocardial infarction (AMI) may be diagnosed in the context of a troponin rise above the 99th percentile of the upper reference limit (URL) with the optimal imprecision of the assay (coefficient of variation, CV) being ≤10%. However, at the 99th percentile, modern assays do not have a CV ≤10%. Objective The authors compared the prognostic implications of placing the diagnostic troponin cut-off at the 99th percentile and at the lowest concentration with a CV ≤10% (functional sensitivity). Methods The authors prospectively recruited 804 patients presenting to the Emergency Department of a university-affiliated teaching hospital with suspected ACS. All patients underwent 12 h troponin T testing and were followed up by telephone ...
Canada has a highly regionalized system of neonatal-perinatal care.24 Tertiary level NICU and perinatal services are mostly located at university-affiliated teaching hospitals in major cities and serve distinct geographic regions.

Introduction: Telemetry is increasingly used to monitor patients with lower intensities of care, but its effect on in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) outcomes in non-critical care patients is unknown. We examined the relationship of IHCA with telemetry in non-critical care patients.. Methods: A retrospective cohort analysis of all patients in non-critical care beds that experienced a cardiac arrest at a large university-affiliated teaching hospital between calendar years 2011 and 2012 was performed. Data were collected as part of AHA Get With the Guidelines protocol. The primary endpoint was Survival to Discharge (SD); secondary endpoints included Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) and Time-to-Death (TD). The independent variable was whether patients were on telemetry. Analysis was performed using univariate and multivariate logistic regression for the SD and ROSC endpoints. Additionally, univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression was employed for TD analyses.. Results: ...

Ringworm is a term commonly used for fungal infections of the skin and hair. These infections may occur in both animals and man. Some fungal organisms live only on animals or man, while others live primarily in the soil. Infections can occur following direct contact with infected animals or humans, or with materials that have been in contact with infected animals or digging in soil contaminated with these fungal organisms. In general, younger animals or immune-comprised animals are more susceptible to infection. Cats, however, are usually susceptible. Ringworm infections are not always circular as suggested by the name. Lesions can assume almost any pattern of hair loss and scaling. Sometimes (especially in cats) hair loss is not prominent but small crusty bumps are felt on the skin. Some animals will be infected with ringworm but not show any changes in the hair or skin. These are "carrier" animals which means they can transmit the fungal infection to other animals without showing any signs ...

Atrial Septal Defects (ASDs) are a result of failure of closure of the atrial septum during fetal development resulting in a communication between the left and right atria. The hemodynamic consequences associated with ASDs vary upon the size of the defect. Small ASDs may go undetected and have no clinical significance. Moderate to large defects usually result in left to right shunting of blood during diastole between the atria. This shunting occurs during diastole due to the differences in compliance between the left and right ventricles rather than pressure differences as atria are generally low pressured chambers during systole and diastole. This scenario results in volume overload of the left ventricle with eccentric hypertrophy. Soft left basilar systolic heart murmurs and split second heart sounds may be heard in animals with a large left-to-right shunting ASD. The murmur is heard as a result of turbulent flow across the pulmonic valve as the right ventricular outflow tract is now dealing ...
