The economic impact of Staphylococcus aureus infection in New York City hospitals. (1/607)

We modeled estimates of the incidence, deaths, and direct medical costs of Staphylococcus aureus infections in hospitalized patients in the New York City metropolitan area in 1995 by using hospital discharge data collected by the New York State Department of Health and standard sources for the costs of health care. We also examined the relative impact of methicillin-resistant versus -sensitive strains of S. aureus and of community-acquired versus nosocomial infections. S. aureus-associated hospitalizations resulted in approximately twice the length of stay, deaths, and medical costs of typical hospitalizations; methicillin-resistant and -sensitive infections had similar direct medical costs, but resistant infections caused more deaths (21% versus 8%). Community-acquired and nosocomial infections had similar death rates, but community-acquired infections appeared to have increased direct medical costs per patient ($35,300 versus $28,800). The results of our study indicate that reducing the incidence of methicillin-resistant and -sensitive nosocomial infections would reduce the societal costs of S. aureus infection.  (+info)

Safe working practices and HIV infection: knowledge, attitudes, perception of risk, and policy in hospital. (2/607)

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)

Improving management of asthma: closing the loop or progressing along the audit spiral? (3/607)

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)

Clinical complaints: a means of improving quality of care. (4/607)

OBJECTIVES: To establish the reasons for clinical complaints, complainants' feelings about the original incident, and their motivation in complaining. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: 24 hospitals in North West Thames region. SUBJECTS: 1007 complainants who had written to 20 hospitals between 1 January 1992 and 30 June 1993 about a complaint involving a clinical incident. MAIN MEASURES: Personal details, the nature of the complaint, the complainant's reaction to the original incident, the quality of the explanation at the time of the incident, the reasons for making a complaint, and what would have prevented the incident. RESULTS: 491 completed questionnaires were received (response rate 49%). Complaints arose from serious incidents, generally a clinical problem combined with staff insensitivity and poor communication. Clinical complaints were seldom about a clinical incident alone (54; 11%); most (353; 72%) included a clinical component and dissatisfaction with personal treatment of the patient or care. In all, 242(49%) complainants reported a need for additional medical treatment, 206(42%) reported that the patient's condition had worsened as a result of treatment, and 175(36%) that side effects had been experienced. In 26(5%) cases the patient had died. Complainants' primary motive was to prevent recurrence of a similar incident. Lack of detailed information and staff attitude were identified as important criticisms. CONCLUSIONS: The emphasis must be on obtaining a better response to complaints at the clinical level by the staff involved in the original incident, not simply on adjusting the complaints procedure. Staff training in responding to distressed and dissatisfied patients is essential, and monitoring complaints must form part of a more general risk management programme.  (+info)

Using evidence-based techniques to modify anemia screening practice. (5/607)

Routine screening of adolescents for iron-deficiency anemia is a widespread but unproven practice. Using evidence-based quality improvement techniques, including literature synthesis and presentation of clinic-specific data, my colleagues and I reevaluated a clinic policy of obtaining complete blood counts to screen for anemia in all new adolescent patients. Medical record review revealed clinically unsuspected anemia in 8 (3.5) of 229 patients screened. All cases were mild, and only two patients received iron therapy. These data, coupled with national recommendations, led to a reversal of the clinic's policy requiring screening of all new patients. One year later, complete blood counts were obtained for only 6% of new patients.  (+info)

Economic consequences of early inpatient discharge to community-based rehabilitation for stroke in an inner-London teaching hospital. (6/607)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In an inner-London teaching hospital, a randomized trial of "conventional" care versus early discharge to community-based therapy found no significant differences in clinical outcomes between patient groups. This report examines the economic consequences of the alternative strategies. METHODS: One hundred sixty-seven patients received the early discharge package, and 164 received conventional care. Patient utilization of health and social services was recorded over a 12-month period, and cost was determined using data from provider departments and other published sources. RESULTS: Inpatient stay after randomization was 12 days (intervention group) versus 18 days (controls) (P=0.0001). Average units of therapy per patient were as follows: physiotherapy, 22.4 (early discharge) versus 15.0 (conventional) (P=0.0006); occupational therapy, 29.0 versus 23.8 (P=0.002); speech therapy, 13. 7 versus 5.8 (P=0.0001). The early discharge group had more annual hospital physician contacts (P=0.015) and general practitioner clinic visits (P=0.019) but fewer incidences of day hospital attendance (P=0.04). Other differences in utilization were nonsignificant. Average annual costs per patient were pound sterling 6800 (early discharge) and pound sterling 7432 (conventional). The early discharge group had lower inpatient costs per patient (pound sterling 4862 [71% of total cost] versus pound sterling 6343 [85%] for controls) but higher non-inpatient costs (pound sterling 1938 [29%] versus pound sterling 1089 [15%]). Further analysis demonstrated that early discharge is unlikely to lead to financial savings; its main benefit is to release capacity for an expansion in stroke caseload. CONCLUSIONS: Overall results of this trial indicate that early discharge to community rehabilitation for stroke is cost-effective. It may provide a means of addressing the predicted increase in need for stroke care within existing hospital capacity.  (+info)

Treatment and rehabilitation on a stroke unit improves 5-year survival. A community-based study. (7/607)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We have previously reported a marked reduction in mortality up to 1 year after treatment and rehabilitation on a stroke unit versus on general neurological and medical wards in unselected stroke patients. In the present study we wanted to test the hypothesis that this mortality-reducing effect is not temporary but is long lasting. METHODS: We performed a community-based comparison of outcome in 1241 stroke patients from 2 adjacent communities in Copenhagen: in one (Frederiksberg), treatment and rehabilitation were provided on general neurological and medical wards, and in the other (Bispebjerg), treatment and rehabilitation were provided on a single large stroke unit. RESULTS: The 2 stroke populations were comparable regarding age, sex, initial stroke severity, lesion diameter on CT, and stroke subtype (hemorrhage/infarct), but patients treated on the stroke unit had a higher frequency of comorbidity and lower incomes. One-year mortality was 39% (general wards) versus 32% (stroke unit) (P=0.01). This difference was still present 5 years after stroke (71% versus 64%; P=0.02). In a multiple logistic regression model of 5-year mortality, treatment on a stroke unit reduced the relative risk of death by 40% (odds ratio, 0.60; 95% CI, 0.42 to 0.85; P<0.01), independent of age, sex, stroke severity, and comorbidity. CONCLUSIONS: The mortality-reducing effect of treatment and rehabilitation on a dedicated stroke unit is long lasting rather than temporary. Stroke unit treatment reduced the relative risk of death within 5 years after stroke by 40% in an unselected, community-based stroke population. These results emphasize the need for organization of treatment and rehabilitation of unselected stroke patients on dedicated stroke units.  (+info)

Hospital-based study of severe malaria and associated deaths in Myanmar. (8/607)

The present study identifies factors that contribute to malaria deaths in township hospitals reporting large numbers of such deaths in Myanmar. Between July and December 1995, we identified a total of 101 patients with severe and complicated malaria by screening the cases admitted to hospital with a primary diagnosis of falciparum malaria. Unrousable coma and less marked impairment of consciousness with or without other severe malaria complications, in contrast to severe malaria anaemia, were associated with all malaria deaths. Adult patients with severe malaria were 2.8 times more likely to die than child patients, with the higher risk of death among adults probably being associated with previous exposure to malaria, delay in seeking treatment and severity of the illness before admission. In view of this, we consider that malaria mortality could be reduced by improving peripheral facilities for the management of severe malaria and providing appropriate education to communities, without stepping up vector control activities.  (+info)

|i|Background|/i|. HPV vaccination may prevent thousands of cases of cervical cancer. We aimed to evaluate the understanding and acceptance of the HPV vaccine among adolescents. |i|Methods|/i|. A questionnaire was distributed to adolescents at health clinics affiliated with a large urban hospital system to determine knowledge pertaining to sexually transmitted diseases and acceptance of the HPV vaccine. |i|Results|/i|. 223 adolescents completed the survey. 28% were male, and 70% were female. The mean age for respondents was 16 years old. Adolescents who had received the HPV vaccine were more likely to be female and to have heard of cervical cancer and Pap testing. Of the 143 adolescents who had not yet been vaccinated, only 4% believed that they were at risk of HPV infection and 52% were willing to be vaccinated. |i|Conclusions|/i|. Surveyed adolescents demonstrated a marginal willingness to receive the HPV vaccine and a lack of awareness of personal risk for acquiring HPV.

Study Purpose: Substance Use Among Violently Injured Youth in an Urban Emergency Department was an investigation into the natural course of service needs, use, and trajectories among high-risk youth with drug use who present to an inner-city Emergency Department with multiple risk behaviors (with and without acute violent injury). By over-sampling of a violently injured group, the study was able to obtain a sufficient sample size that has been lacking in prior work limiting conclusions and intervention development. The specific aims of the study included:. Specific Aim 1: To describe multiple risk behaviors of youth/young adults (ages 14-24) who report illicit drug use and who present to an urban Emergency Department for an acute violent injury (e.g., laceration, gun shot wound), compared to youth with drug use who seek non-violence related Emergency Department care (for unintentional injury and illness, e.g., motor vehicle crash, abdominal pain). Specific Aim 2: To identify the trajectories of ...
The most important lesson I learned through this unique experience is things are not as bad as I thought they would be. I started the service with 11 patients; all tested positive for COVID-19 and had cancer. Most of them had received chemotherapy within the previous 2 weeks, and some had low white blood cell counts and other comorbidities. I thought most of them might deteriorate rapidly, but to my amazement, nine patients remained stable and improved over the next 7 days. Among them, seven went home, and two remained in the hospital with minimal COVID-19 symptoms but waiting for placement to a subacute rehabilitation facility.. Two elderly patients with end-stage cancer ultimately died peacefully, with their family members able to visit the bedside one by one. I am glad our hospital was able to make the exception for our dying patients who were COVID-19-positive by allowing their family to pay tribute as the end approached. As such, it makes this process much more humane.. We admitted eight ...

Emergency departments may be a useful information source to describe the demographics and clinical characteristics of patients with acute cocaine-related medical problems. We therefore conducted a retrospective analysis of 165 acute, laboratory-confirmed cocaine intoxications admitted to an urban emergency department in Switzerland between January 2007 and March 2011. A total of 165 patients with a mean age of 32 years were included. Most patients were male (73%) and unemployed (65%). Only a minority (16%) had abused cocaine alone while 84% of the patients had used at least one additional substance, most commonly ethanol (41%), opioids (38%), or cannabis (36%) as confirmed by their detection in blood samples. The most frequently reported symptoms were chest pain (21%), palpitations (19%), anxiety (36%) and restlessness (36%). Psychiatric symptoms were present in 64%. Hypertension and tachycardia were observed in 53% and 44% of the patients, respectively. Severe poisonings only occurred in patients with
There is a growing interest in high income countries to control expenditure on medicines by improving the rationale for their selection. However, in middle income countries with differing priorities and needs, little attention has been paid to this issue. In this paper we explore the policies and processes for the selection and use of medicines in a group of hospitals in Chile, a middle income country which has recently joined the OECD. A combination of qualitative and quantitative methods was used. A national survey questionnaire was distributed to investigate the role and operation of PTCs (Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committees). Interviews were conducted with key actors in the selection of medicines in large urban public hospitals. The national survey had an overall response rate of 42% (83 out of 196), whilst 7 out of 14 hospitals participated in the qualitative study. High complexity hospitals are large urban hospitals; all of which claim to have a working PTC. The pharmacy offices are mainly

Since hurricane Sandy, a number of New York City hospitals have been scrambling to deal with a sharp increase in patients, forcing them to add shifts of doctors and nurses on overtime, to convert offices and lobbies to use for patients care, and even, in one case, to go to a local furniture store to buy extra beds. At Beth Israel Medical Center, 11 blocks south of the Bellevue Hospital Center emergency room, which was shuttered because of storm damage, the average number of visits to the E.R. per day has risen to record levels. Visits have increased by 24 percent this November compared with last, and the numbers show no sign of dropping. Hospital admissions have risen 12 percent compared with last November.
The healthcare industry includes establishments ranging from small-town private practices of physicians who employ only one medical assistant to busy inner-city hospitals that provide thousands of diverse jobs. In 2008, around 48 percent of non-hospital healthcare establishments employed fewer than five workers. In contrast, 72 percent of hospital employees were in establishments with more than 1,000 workers.. The healthcare industry consists of the following segments:. Hospitals. Hospitals provide complete medical care, ranging from diagnostic services, to surgery, to continuous nursing care. Some hospitals specialize in treatment of the mentally ill, cancer patients, or children. Hospital-based care may be on an inpatient (overnight) or outpatient basis. The mix of workers needed varies, depending on the size, geographic location, goals, philosophy, funding, organization, and management style of the institution. As hospitals work to improve efficiency, care continues to shift from an inpatient ...

THURSDAY, July 2, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Both flu and COVID-19 can raise your risk for a stroke, but the odds appear to be eight times higher with the coronavirus, a new study finds.. Among more than 1,900 patients with COVID-19, 1.6% suffered a stroke, versus 0.2% of nearly 1,500 patients seriously ill with flu, researchers found. Doctors and practitioners taking care of patients with COVID-19 infection should remain vigilant for signs and symptoms of stroke, because prompt diagnosis may permit effective stroke treatment, said researcher Dr. Neal Parikh, an assistant professor of neurology and neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. Fundamentally, our results support the notion that COVID-19 infection is more severe than influenza infection, Parikh added.. For the study, Parikh and colleagues compared the incidence of stroke among COVID patients and flu patients in two New York City hospitals. Patients with coronavirus were assessed March 4 through May 2, while ...

The Blood for Britain program during the early 1940s was quite successful (and popular in the United States) based on Charles Drews contribution. A large project began in August 1940 to collect blood in New York City hospitals for the export of plasma to Britain. Drew was appointed medical supervisor of the Plasma for Britain project. His notable contribution at this time was to transform the test tube methods of many blood researchers into the first successful mass production techniques. Nevertheless, the decision was made to develop a dried plasma package for the armed forces as it would reduce breakage and make the transportation, packaging, and storage much simpler.[8] The resulting dried plasma package came in two tin cans containing 400 cc bottles. One bottle contained enough distilled water to reconstitute the dried plasma contained within the other bottle. In about three minutes, the plasma would be ready to use and could stay fresh for around four hours.[9] The Blood for Britain ...

To gather data, researchers studied four hospitals, including two urban teaching hospitals and two suburban hospitals, looking at 6,841 patient records over 12 months. The study found that when patient-to-nurse ratios at one of the four unnamed hospitals studied climbed 10 percent, the hospital …
TY - JOUR. T1 - A Prognostic Model for 1-Year Mortality in Older Adults after Hospital Discharge. AU - Levine, Stacie K.. AU - Sachs, Greg A.. AU - Jin, Lei. AU - Meltzer, David. PY - 2007/5/1. Y1 - 2007/5/1. N2 - Purpose: To develop and validate a prognostic index for 1-year mortality of hospitalized older adults using standard administrative data readily available after discharge. Subjects and methods: The prognostic index was developed and validated retrospectively in 6382 older adults discharged from general medicine services at an urban teaching hospital over a 4-year period. Potential risk factors for 1-year mortality were obtained from administrative data and examined using logistic regression models. Each risk factor associated independently with mortality was assigned a weight based on the odds ratios, and risk scores were calculated for each patient by adding the points of each independent risk factor present. Patients in the development cohort were divided into quartiles of risk based ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The use of nicotine-replacement therapy by hospitalized smokers. AU - Rigotti, Nancy A.. AU - Arnsten, Julia H.. AU - McKool, Kathleen M.. AU - Wood-Reid, Kristen M.. AU - Singer, Daniel E.. AU - Pasternak, Richard C.. PY - 1999/11. Y1 - 1999/11. N2 - Background: No-smoking policies are mandatory in U.S. hospitals. Consequently, smokers who are hospitalized must temporarily stop smoking. Nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT) could help hospitalized smokers relieve nicotine withdrawal symptoms, comply with no-smoking policies, and sustain tobacco abstinence after discharge. The extent of NRT use in the hospital setting is unknown. We describe the prevalence and patterns of NRT use in hospitalized smokers. Design: Prospective observational study within a randomized smoking-intervention trial. Setting/Participants: Six hundred fifty adult smokers admitted to the medical and surgical services of a large urban teaching hospital that prohibits smoking in all indoor areas. Follow-up was at ...
Author(s): Herring, Andrew A; Johnson, Brian; Ginde, Adit A; Camargo, Carlos A; Feng, Lin; Alter, Harrison J; Hsia, Renee | Abstract: Increasing use of the emergency department (ED) is well documented, but little is known about the type and severity of ED visits or their distribution across safety-net and non-safety-net hospitals. We examined the rates of high-intensity ED visits--characterized by their use of advanced imaging, consultations with specialists, the evaluation of multiple systems, and highly complex medical decision making--by patients with a severe, potentially life-threatening illness in California from 2002 through 2009. Total annual ED visits increased by 25 percent, from 9.0 million to 11.3 million, but high-intensity ED visits nearly doubled, increasing 87 percent from 778,000 to 1.5 million per year. The percentage of ED visits with high-intensity care increased from 9 percent to 13 percent (a relative increase of 44 percent). Annual ED admissions increased by 39 percent overall;

Dr. de Villiers and Partners, the X-ray practice at Johannesburgs Netcare Garden City Hospital, has modernised the way it hands over x-rays and corresponding reports to its patients and referring doctors by installing an Epson Discproducer PP-100 CD/DVD disc publisher and printer.. The efficiency of the Epson Discproducer means that the radiologists can copy their patients x-rays and reports to a DVD in four minutes, and a CD in two minutes, saving them, the referring doctor and the patient time and money.. Until October 2013, we produced conventional X-ray films for all our patients, which meant that they had to wait for extended periods of time while plates were processed, films produced, and reports typed, says Leonie Tromp, the control radiographer at the practice.. Now that we have installed the Epson Discproducer PP-100, we have significantly sped up the overall process, allowing us to see more patients in less time.. The Discproducer holds up to 100 discs, allowing hands-free ...
In a way, the Homecoming article and a politically polarizing fight halfway around the world seemed both disconnected and attached at the same time, possibly because the boys getting out of school in 1972 were also some of the last ones to get draft cards. It made me wonder if maybe Bellevue Highs last hurrah in 1971 - which crowned Joan Kimball as their queen forever - was truly more profound when faced with the grave reality of life outside school walls. This was going to take some research.. My go-to person for anything 70s in Bellevue had plenty to say about Joan.. She was my idol in high school, wrote Trisha Margaret - Bellevue Class of `73. Smart, pretty, popular yet very unassuming. Joan was an inspiration to me.. Those words came as a heartfelt message from the past; a description of that depth - shared forty years after the fact - meant that Joan had left an impression on people. Another comment by an admirer was equally as considerate: Bet she is still a warm, approachable ...
Your interpretation of these results may differ from mine, but heres my take. Most hospitals got penalties in 2015 and a majority have been penalized all three years. Who is getting penalized seems to be shifting - away from a program that primarily targets teaching and safety-net hospitals towards one where the penalties are more broadly distributed, although the gap between safety-net and other hospitals remains sizeable. It is possible that this reflects teaching hospitals and safety-net hospitals improving more rapidly than others, but I suspect that the surgical readmissions, which benefit high quality (i.e. low mortality) hospitals are balancing out the medical readmissions, which, at least for some conditions such as heart failure, tends to favor lower quality (higher mortality) hospitals. Safety-net hospitals are still getting bigger penalties, presumably because they care for more poor patients (who are more likely to come back to the hospital) but the gap has narrowed. This is good ...

|ns4:p||ns4:bold|Background:|/ns4:bold| Across Southeast Asia, declining malaria incidence poses a challenge for healthcare providers, in how best to manage the vast majority of patients with febrile illnesses who have a negative malaria test. In rural regions, where the majority of the population reside, empirical treatment guidelines derived from central urban hospitals are often of limited relevance.

  • Do Older Rural and Urban Veterans Experience Different Rates of Unplanned Readmission to VA and Non-VA Hospitals? (
  • Purpose: We wanted to determine whether older rural veterans who were enrolled in the VA had different rates of unplanned readmission to VA or non-VA hospitals than their urban counterparts. (
  • We calculated 30-day readmission rates and odds ratios for rural and urban veterans, and we performed a logistic regression analysis to determine whether living in a rural setting or initially using the VA for hospitalization were independent risk factors for unplanned 30-day readmission, after adjusting for age, sex, length of stay of the index admission, and morbidity. (
  • For both rural- and urban-dwelling veterans, readmission after using a VA hospital was more common than after using a non-VA hospital (20.7% vs 16.8% for rural veterans, 21.2% vs 16.1% for urban veterans). (
  • After adjusting for other variables, readmission was more likely for rural veterans and following admission to a VA hospital. (
  • Conclusions: Our findings suggest that VA should consider using the unplanned readmission rate as a performance metric, using the non-VA experience of veterans as a performance benchmark, and helping rural veterans select higher performing non-VA hospitals. (
  • Background: Heart failure (HF) patients have high rates of hospital readmission resulting in large human and financial costs to families, communities, hospitals and payers. (
  • Additionally, population health management will encourage a stronger relationship among multiple community organizations and providers - creating shared goals to improve overall community health, decrease hospital readmission rates and reduce costly emergency department visits. (
