Assessment of serum thyroxine binding capacity-dependent biases in free thyroxine assays. (1/1619)

BACKGROUND: Free thyroxine (FT4) assays may exhibit biases that are related to serum T4 binding capacity (sBC). We describe two tests that can be used to assess the presence and magnitude of sBC-dependent biases in FT4 assays. METHODS: We used a direct equilibrium dialysis FT4 assay as the reference method and compared the results obtained with those of the FT4 assays under investigation, in patient sera having a wide range of sBC. We then compared the expected and observed FT4 results for sera diluted with an inert buffer. Because serum dilution causes a predictable decrease in sBC, an increasingly negative bias on progressive dilution is indicative of a sBC-dependent bias. RESULTS: The automated FT4 assay investigated (Vitros FT4) showed no demonstrable sBC-dependent bias by either test. CONCLUSION: These two tests can be used to screen for sBC-dependent biases in FT4 assays.  (+info)

How patients perceive the role of hospital chaplains: a preliminary exploration. (2/1619)

OBJECTIVE: An exploratory study of the attitudes of hospital patients to the service provided by hospital chaplains. DESIGN: Questionnaire study of hospital inpatients in December 1992. SETTING: One large teaching hospital in London. PATIENTS: 180 hospital inpatients in 14 different general wards, 168 (93%) of whom agreed to take part. MAIN MEASURES: Attitudes to chaplains and their role contained in 12 questions developed during a pilot study on hospital inpatients (16) and staff (14) and their relation to patients' age, sex, length of hospital stay, and religious beliefs, according to Kendall rank order correlations. RESULTS: Of 168(93%) respondents, 72(43%) were women; mean age of patients was 63.1 (SD 16.8) years. Forty five (27%) were inpatients of three days or less and 22(13%) for one month or more. 136(81%) were Christian; 17(10%) atheist, agnostic, or had no religion; and 15(9%) were of other religions. In general, patients showed positive attitudes towards the role of hospital chaplains and to the services they provided. The correlation analysis showed that there was a significant tendency for older patients, those who had been inpatients for longer, and those with religious beliefs to be more sympathetic to the role of hospital chaplains. CONCLUSIONS: Hospital chaplains provide a service which is appreciated by patients. This study provides a simple instrument for assessing patients' attitudes to chaplains.  (+info)

User fees and patient behaviour: evidence from Niamey National Hospital. (3/1619)

Evidence is presented on the effects of price changes on the delay before seeking care and on referral status in a sample of hospital patients in Niger. Price changes are measured as differences across patients at one hospital in whether or not they pay for care, rather than as differences in prices across several hospitals. User fees are charged, but the fee system allows exemptions for some payor categories such as government employees, students, and indigent patients. Evidence is also presented on the effect of income on the delay before seeking care and referral status. The analysis demonstrates a technical point on whether household consumption or current income is a more appropriate measure of income. The analysis shows that user fees affect patient behaviour, but the effects are not the same for outpatients and inpatients. Outpatients who pay for care wait longer before seeking care, but inpatients do not. Inpatients who pay for care are more likely to be referred, but outpatients are not. Patients with more income wait less time to seek care and are less likely to be referred than other patients. Further, household consumption explains patient behaviour better than current income.  (+info)

What proportion of primary psychiatric interventions are based on evidence from randomised controlled trials? (4/1619)

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the proportion of psychiatric inpatients receiving primary interventions based on randomised controlled trials or systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials. DESIGN: Retrospective survey. SETTING: Acute adult general psychiatric ward. SUBJECTS: All patients admitted to the ward during a 28 day period. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary interventions were classified according to whether or not they were supported by evidence from randomised controlled trials or systematic reviews. RESULTS: The primary interventions received by 26/40 (65%; 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 51% to 79%) of patients admitted during the period were based on randomised trials or systematic reviews. CONCLUSIONS: When patients were used as the denominator, most primary interventions given in acute general psychiatry were based on experimental evidence.

This paper describes a study undertaken to investigate the willingness of patients and households to pay for rural district hospital services in north-western Tanzania. The surveys undertaken included interviews with 500 outpatients and 293 inpatients at three district level hospitals, interviews with 1500 households and discussions with 22 focus groups within the catchment areas of the primary health care programmes of these hospitals. Information was collected on willingness to pay fees for certain hospital services, willingness to become a member of a local insurance system, and exemptions for cost-sharing. The willingness to pay for district hospital services was large. Furthermore, most respondents favoured a local insurance system above user fee systems, a finding which applied at all places and in all the surveys. More female respondents were in favour of a local insurance scheme. The conditions needed for the introduction of a local insurance system are discussed.  (+info)

Measuring change in disability after inpatient rehabilitation: comparison of the responsiveness of the Barthel index and the Functional Independence Measure. (6/1619)

BACKGROUND: The importance of evaluating disability outcome measures is well recognised. The Functional Independence Measure (FIM) was developed to be a more comprehensive and "sensitive" measure of disability than the Barthel Index (BI). Although the FIM is widely used and has been shown to be reliable and valid, there is limited information about its responsiveness, particularly in comparison with the BI. This study compares the appropriateness and responsiveness of these two disability measures in patients with multiple sclerosis and stroke. METHODS: Patients with multiple sclerosis (n=201) and poststroke (n=82) patients undergoing inpatient neurorehabilitation were studied. Admission and discharge scores were generated for the BI and the three scales of the FIM (total, motor, and cognitive). Appropriateness of the measures to the study samples was determined by examining score distributions, floor and ceiling effects. Responsiveness was determined using an effect size calculation. RESULTS: The BI, FIM total, and FIM motor scales show good variability and have small floor and ceiling effects in the study samples. The FIM cognitive scale showed a notable ceiling effect in patients with multiple sclerosis. Comparable effect sizes were found for the BI, and two FIM scales (total and motor) in both patients with multiple sclerosis and stroke patients. CONCLUSION: All measures were appropriate to the study sample. The FIM cognitive scale, however, has limited usefulness as an outcome measure in progressive multiple sclerosis. The BI, FIM total, and FIM motor scales show similar responsiveness, suggesting that both the FIM total and FIM motor scales have no advantage over the BI in evaluating change.  (+info)

Relationship between TIMI frame count and clinical outcomes after thrombolytic administration. Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Study Group. (7/1619)

BACKGROUND: The corrected TIMI frame count (CTFC) is the number of cine frames required for dye to first reach standardized distal coronary landmarks, and it is an objective and quantitative index of coronary blood flow. METHODS AND RESULTS: The CTFC was measured in 1248 patients in the TIMI 4, 10A, and 10B trials, and its relationship to clinical outcomes was examined. Patients who died in the hospital had a higher CTFC (ie, slower flow) than survivors (69. 6+/-35.4 [n=53] versus 49.5+/-32.3 [n=1195]; P=0.0003). Likewise, patients who died by 30 to 42 days had higher CTFCs than survivors (66.2+/-36.4 [n=57] versus 49.9+/-32.1 [n=1059]; P=0.006). In a multivariate model that excluded TIMI flow grades, the 90-minute CTFC was an independent predictor of in-hospital mortality (OR=1.21 per 10-frame rise [95% CI, 1.1 to 1.3], an approximately 0.7% increase in absolute mortality for every 10-frame rise; P<0.001) even when other significant correlates of mortality (age, heart rate, anterior myocardial infarction, and female sex) were adjusted for in the model. The CTFC identified a subgroup of patients with TIMI grade 3 flow who were at a particularly low risk of adverse outcomes. The risk of in-hospital mortality increased in a stepwise fashion from 0.0% (n=41) in patients with a 90-minute CTFC that was faster than the 95% CI for normal flow (0 to 13 frames, hyperemia, TIMI grade 4 flow), to 2.7% (n=18 of 658 patients) in patients with a CTFC of 14 to 40 (a CTFC of 40 has previously been identified as the cutpoint for distinguishing TIMI grade 3 flow), to 6.4% (35/549) in patients with a CTFC >40 (P=0.003). Although the risk of death, recurrent myocardial infarction, shock, congestive heart failure, or left ventricular ejection fraction 20 to +info)

A restrictive platelet transfusion policy allowing long-term support of outpatients with severe aplastic anemia. (8/1619)

The threshold for prophylactic platelet transfusions in patients with hypoplastic thrombopenia generally recommended in the standard literature is 20,000 platelets/microL. A more restrictive transfusion policy may be indicated in patients with chronic severe aplastic anemia (SAA) in need of long-term platelet support. We evaluated the feasibility and safety of a policy with low thresholds for prophylactic transfusions (+info)

Background Healthcare improvement requires rigorous measurement. Patient experience is a key healthcare outcome and target for improvement. Its measurement requires psychometrically validated questionnaires. In England, the Adult In-Patient Survey (AIPS), which is validated for use across the entire acute inpatient population, is administered to unselected patients after discharge from National Health Service acute Trusts. The AIPS is reported at an organisational level, but subhospital level data are needed for local quality improvement; it is currently uncertain whether the AIPS retains validity in local specialty subgroups.. ...
Cost of a standard hospital stay is an indicator that measures the relative cost-efficiency of a hospitals ability to provide acute inpatient care. This indicator compares a hospitals total acute inpatient care expenses to the number of acute inpatient weighted cases related to the inpatients that it provided care for.

Background: Previous studies in individual countries have identified inconsistent predictors of length of stay (LoS) in psychiatric inpatient units. This may reflect methodological inconsistencies across studies or true differences of predictors. In this study we assessed predictors of LoS in five European countries and explored whether their effect varies across countries. Methods: Prospective cohort study. All patients admitted over 14 months to 57 psychiatric inpatient units in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Poland and United Kingdom were screened. Putative predictors were collected from medical records and in face-to-face interviews and tested for their association with LoS. Results: Average LoS varied from 17.9 days in Italy to 55.1 days in Belgium. In the overall sample being homeless, receiving benefits, social isolation, diagnosis of psychosis, greater symptom severity, substance use, history of previous admission and being involuntarily admitted predicted longer LoS. Several predictors showed ...
There is an emerging international literature demonstrating clinical and cost-effectiveness of sub-acute residential mental health services. To date, however, there is limited information on the profile of consumers accessing these models of care. This study aimed to understand the profile of the population served by adult sub-acute residential mental health services in Victoria, Australia (known as Prevention and Recovery Care; PARC) and to compare PARC service consumers with consumers admitted to psychiatric inpatient units within public hospitals. Using 5 years (2012-2016) of a state-wide database of routinely collected individual level mental health service data, we describe the socio-demographic and clinical profile of PARC service consumers compared to consumers of psychiatric inpatient units including for primary diagnosis and illness severity. Using admissions as the unit of analysis, we identify the characteristics that distinguish PARC service admissions from psychiatric inpatient admissions.

EDITORIAL. Preventing thromboembolism in medical inpatients - time to catch up with the surgeons?. E Moran. John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK (formerly of Hlabisa Hospital, Hlabisa, KwaZulu-Natal). Correspondence. Heparin prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism has been considered standard practice for patients undergoing surgical procedures for some time.1 Only relatively recently has there been a move to adopt the practice more widely among medical inpatients, motivated by increasing good-quality evidence of the burden of the problem and perhaps by medico-legal concerns. Some researchers suggest that at least 10% of untreated medical inpatients may develop thrombo-embolic (TE) disease (either deep-vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolus).2 A number of studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of heparin prophylaxis in this group, with reductions of up to 70% reported in acutely ill medical inpatients.3,4 The American of College of Chest Physicians 2004 guidelines recommended the use of heparin ...

Inpatient mental health care is provided in a safe, stable, and therapeutic environment. Psychiatric treatment, group therapy, and structured activities are based on an individuals needs and goals.. Acute inpatient hospitalization occurs when an individuals issues cannot be safely or effectively treated on an outpatient basis. It is the most intensive level of psychiatric care offered, providing 24-hour nursing observation and care; interventions and oversight by a psychiatrist; and intensive, highly coordinated treatment by a physician-led team of mental health professionals. Inpatient hospitalization is designed to stabilize the patient before transitioning them to a less intensive level of care..

The in-patient treatment unit is based in a large psychiatric hospital that is currently being redeveloped, and there has been considerable discussion regarding the future location of the unit, including the level of medical care required. Our research objectives emerged from informal discussions among medical and nursing staff, reflecting on an anecdotal impression that the in-patient unit was treating patients with ever-increasing medical complexity. It is not uncommon for patients to be transferred directly to a general hospital at the point of admission, or shortly afterwards, owing to the severity of their physical condition. The data presented here support this impression.. The unit has based its admission criteria on a since-withdrawn guideline from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) - guideline no. 74.9 It outlines the patient characteristics that are likely to make community detoxification suitable and, conversely, situations where in-patient detoxification would be ...

Current corticosteroid regimens for children hospitalized with asthma typically include a 5-day course of prednisone or prednisolone. However, these medications taste poorly and are associated with vomiting and poor compliance. Outpatient evidence suggests that a 2-day course of dexamethasone is as effective as a longer course of prednisone and prednisolone, and better tolerated. Studies in hospitalized patients are lacking. Our primary objective is to determine the feasibility of a non-inferiority trial, comparing 2 days of dexamethasone to 5 days of prednisone/prednisolone for inpatient asthma treatment. We also wish to determine the feasibility of 1) enrolling patients upon admission to hospital, 2) asking patients and/or caregivers to complete a symptom diary for 7 days, and 3) reassessing patients post hospital discharge. This study will inform a future multi-site trial comparing prednisone/prednisolone to dexamethasone in inpatient asthma treatment. It has the potential of improving the ...

Childrens hospitals are caring for increasing numbers of patients outside of the traditional pediatric age range. Although these individuals make up only a small fraction of inpatients, thousands of adults receive care at these 30 childrens hospitals annually. Adults are more frequently readmitted than patients in the pediatric age group, and their inpatient-days and charges are disproportionately higher. The increase of patients aged 18 to 21 years exceeds that for pediatric patients, and our projections suggest that both transitional and adult inpatient populations will continue to grow. Although childrens hospitals may see a disproportionate number of these patients compared with general hospitals because of their clinical focus, our observations demonstrate that the growth of transitional-aged patients is out of proportion to general increases in pediatric patient numbers.. Determination of the best location for the care of adults with chronic conditions that originate in childhood is a ...

Your teenager needs inpatient treatment for his addiction if his use is life-threatening, or if he is suicidal or has a serious mental illness, or if he just cant stop without going to an inpatient facility. Inpatient facilities -where the patients stay 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - are naturally more intensive, and can monitor your teenager in a way no clinic can possibly match. Life-threatening is of course sometimes a subjective term, but if your teenager cannot stop using cocaine, that would be a good time to consider inpatient treatment, given the lethality of that drug. And if your teenager hints at or even acts out at being suicidal, an inpatient stay will probably necessary to secure his safety. Also, if your teenager just cant stop using his drug of choice, even if it is marijuana, then an inpatient stay will likely be necessary. Teenagers often say that they dont want to go to inpatient treatment, since nothing external will change when they return home. That is true: the ...
Home for lunch through timely discharge is only one part of the patient journey, and over the past year we have been examining what delays our adult patients leaving hospital following an inpatient stay. We talked to patients and staff through workshops, questionnaires and visiting all wards as well as reviewing the data that is captured during a patients stay in hospital. This led the group to adopt the SAFER Patient Flow Care Bundle (NHS England); a set of clear rules that if followed routinely will help improve patient flow, patient experience and reduce length of stay across adult inpatient wards in acute hospitals, also promoting timely discharge for our patients.. By adopting the SAFER Care Bundle we are focusing on ensuring that everything is in place for a safe and timely return to our patients place of discharge and that Home for Lunch on the day of discharge, where possible and appropriate, will be realised.. ...

The use of the psychiatric care days flag in the Admitted Patient Mental Health Care NMDS enables identification of the subset of separations from hospitals that received treatment and care in a specialised psychiatric unit. While the flag does not distinguish acute and non-acute units, the vast majority of separations are attributable to acute units. A trimming process to isolate separations with extreme length of stay (e.g. , 365 days) can be used to approximate acute units. However, the data source cannot disaggregate acute psychiatric units by target population ...
