Asthma visits to emergency rooms and soybean unloading in the harbors of Valencia and A Coruna, Spain. (1/2057)

Soybean unloading in the harbor of Barcelona, Spain, has been associated with large increases in the numbers of asthma patients treated in emergency departments between 1981 and 1987. In this study, the association between asthma and soybean unloading in two other Spanish cities, Valencia and A Coruna, was assessed. Asthma admissions were retrospectively identified for the period 1993-1995, and harbor activities were investigated in each location. Two approaches were used to assess the association between asthma and soybean unloading: One used unusual asthma days (days with an unusually high number of emergency room asthma visits) as an effect measure, and the other estimated the relative increase in the daily number of emergency room visits by autoregressive Poisson regression, adjusted for meteorologic variables, seasonality, and influenza incidence. No association between unusual asthma days and soya unloading was observed in either Valencia or A Coruna, except for one particular dock in Valencia. When the association between unloaded products and the daily number of emergency asthma visits was studied, a statistically significant association was observed for unloading of soya husk (relative risk = 1.50, 95% confidence interval 1.16-1.94) and soybeans (relative risk = 1.31, 95% confidence interval 1.08-1.59) in A Coruna. In Valencia, a statistical association was found only for the unloading of soybeans at two particular docks. Although these findings support the notion that asthma outbreaks are not a common hidden condition in most harbors where soybeans are unloaded, the weak associations reported are likely to be causal. Therefore, appropriate control measures should be implemented to avoid soybean dust emissions, particularly in harbors with populations living in the vicinity.  (+info)

Record linkage as a research tool for office-based medical care. (2/2057)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the feasibility of linking records to study health services and health outcomes for primary care patients. DESIGN: A cohort of patients from the Family Medicine Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital was assembled from the clinic's billing records. Their health numbers were linked to the Ontario Hospital Discharge Database. The pattern of hospital admission rates was investigated using International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for primary discharge diagnosis. A pilot case-control study of risk factor management for stroke was nested in the cohort. SETTING: Family medicine clinic based in a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: A cohort of 19,654 Family Medicine Centre patients seen at least once since 1991. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Admission rates by age, sex, and diagnosis. Numbers of admissions for individual patients, time to readmission, and length of stay. Odds ratios for admission for cerebrovascular disease. RESULTS: The 19,654 patients in the cohort had 14,299 discharges from Ontario hospitals in the 4 years from 1992 to 1995, including 3832 discharges following childbirth. Some patients had many discharges: 4816 people accounted for the 10,467 admissions excluding childbirth. Excluding transfers between institutions, there were 4975 readmissions to hospital during the 4 years, 1392 (28%) of them within 28 days of previous discharge. Admissions for mental disorders accounted for the greatest number of days in hospital. The pilot study of risk factor management suggested that acetylsalicylic acid therapy might not be effective for elderly primary care patients with atrial fibrillation and that calcium channel blocker therapy might be less effective than other therapies for preventing cerebrovascular disease in hypertensive primary care patients. CONCLUSIONS: Record linkage combined with data collection by chart review or interview is a useful method for studying the effectiveness of medical care in Canada and might suggest interesting hypotheses for further investigation.  (+info)

Evaluation of the quality of an injury surveillance system. (3/2057)

The sensitivity, positive predictive value, and representativeness of the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP) were assessed. Sensitivity was estimated at four centers in June through August 1992, by matching independently identified injuries with those in the CHIRPP database. The positive predictive value was determined by reviewing all "injuries" in the database (at Montreal Children's Hospital) that could not be matched. Representativeness was assessed by comparing missed with captured injuries (at Montreal Children's Hospital) on demographic, social, and clinical factors. Sensitivity ranged from 30% to 91%, and the positive predictive value was 99.9% (i.e., the frequency of false-positive capture was negligible). The representativeness study compared 277 missed injuries with 2,746 captured injuries. The groups were similar on age, sex, socioeconomic status, delay before presentation, month, and day of presentation. Injuries resulting in admissions, poisonings, and those presenting overnight were, however, more likely to be missed. The adjusted odds ratio of being missed by CHIRPP for admitted injuries (compared with those treated and released) was 13.07 (95% confidence interval 7.82-21.82); for poisonings (compared with all other injuries), it was 9.91 (95% confidence interval 5.39-18.20); and for injuries presenting overnight (compared with those presenting during the day or evening), it was 4.11 (95% confidence interval 3.11-5.44). These injuries were probably missed because of inadequate education of participants in the system. The authors conclude that CHIRPP data are of relatively high quality and may be used, with caution, for research and public health policy.  (+info)

The effects of pravastatin on hospital admission in hypercholesterolemic middle-aged men: West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study. (4/2057)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of lipid reduction with pravastatin on hospital admissions in middle-aged men with hypercholesterolemia in the West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study. BACKGROUND: A prospective, randomized controlled trial was undertaken in primary care centers in the West of Scotland. METHODS: A total of 6,595 participants randomized to receive pravastatin 40 mg or placebo daily were followed up for a mean of 4.9 years (range 3.5 to 6.1 years). Analysis of hospital admissions was undertaken according to the "intention to treat" principle both for cardiovascular diseases and noncardiovascular diseases (including malignant neoplasms, psychiatric diagnoses, trauma and other causes). A secondary analysis of hospitalization in patients who were > or = 75% compliant was performed. RESULTS: During the trial, 2,198 (33%) of the 6,595 men were admitted to hospital on 4,333 occasions, of which 1,234 (28%) were for cardiovascular causes. Pravastatin reduced the number of subjects requiring hospital admission for cardiovascular causes by 21% (95% CI [confidence interval] 9 to 31, p = 0.0008) overall, and by 27% (95% CI 15 to 38) in compliant participants. The number of admissions per 1,000 subject-years for cardiovascular disease was reduced by 10.8 (95% CI 4 to 17.4, p = 0.0013) in all subjects, and by 15.6 (95% CI 8.3 to 23, p < 0.0001) in compliant participants. Pravastatin had no significant influence on hospital admission for any noncardiovascular diagnostic category. There were 13.4 fewer admissions per 1,000 subject-years for all causes in the pravastatin-treated group (95% CI -0.4 to 27.3, p = 0.076). No significant difference in duration of hospital stay was found between the pravastatin and placebo patients in any diagnostic group. CONCLUSIONS: Pravastatin therapy reduced the burden of hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease, without any adverse effect on noncardiovascular hospitalization.  (+info)

Patient readmission and support utilization following anterior temporal lobectomy. (5/2057)

The aim of this study was to examine factors precipitating patient readmission, following anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) for refractory epilepsy. A second aim was to explore the use of hospital outpatient and community support services ('outpatient services') by this patient population. These aims served the more general goal of identifying patients most likely in need of services additional to those routinely provided by our Seizure Surgery Follow-up and Rehabilitation Programme. The medical records of 100 consecutive ATL patients were retrospectively examined for the incidence and diagnoses precipitating acute readmission, and the utilization of additional outpatient services. Twenty-one patients (21%) required readmission post-ATL, totalling 47 readmissions between them. Psychiatric diagnoses were the most prevalent (53%), including anxiety, depression and/or post-ictal psychosis. Epileptological diagnoses were the other main precipitant (28%). Additional outpatient services were predominantly utilized for ongoing psychological support. Of the 21 patients requiring readmission, 10(10%) also needed additional outpatient services. These patients were predominantly female or unemployed, in contrast to male or employed patients who tended to require readmission only. Seventeen patients (17%) were maintained within the community using additional outpatient services only. Characteristics of these patients included disrupted family dynamics, limited social networks, and/or a psychiatric history. These patients were also more frequently beyond the 24-month follow-up period of the programme. A profile of patients most in need of additional support services can be constructed to assist team planning of proactive management strategies for the rehabilitation phase of ATL.  (+info)

Effect of guidelines on management of head injury on record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments. (6/2057)

OBJECTIVE: To compare record keeping and decision making in accident and emergency departments before and after distribution of guidelines on head injury management as indices of implementation. DESIGN: Before (1987) and after (1990) study of accident and emergency medical records. SETTING: Two accident and emergency departments in England. PATIENTS: 1144 adult patients with head injury in department 1 (533 in 1987, 613 in 1990) and 734 in department 2 (370, 364 respectively). MAIN MEASURES: Recording of relevant symptoms and signs as determined in the guidelines; presence of, indications for, and rates and appropriateness of skull x ray examination and admission. RESULTS: The median number of guidelines variables recorded for all study periods ranged from 7 to 9 out of a possible maximum of 27. For key decision making variables the presence or absence of penetrating injury was least likely to be recorded (< or = 1%) and that of loss of consciousness most likely (> or = 75%). Altogether, the proportion of patients receiving skull x ray examination or admitted varied from 25%-60% and 7%-23% respectively; overall, 69% (1280/1856) and 64% (1177/1851) of patients were managed appropriately. However, no consistent change occurred in the departments between the study periods. For instance, in department 1 the proportion of appropriate x ray examinations rose significantly after distribution of the guidelines (from 61% (202/330) to 73% (305/417)) and appropriate decisions on whether to x ray or not also rose (from 65% (340/522) to 72% (435/608)). There was no significant change in department 2, although the proportion of appropriate admissions fell (from 33% (55/166) to 15% (19/130)). CONCLUSIONS: Recording practice and decision making were variable and had not consistently improved after dissemination of the guidelines. Strategies are required to ensure effective implementation of guidelines.  (+info)

Can admission notes be improved by using preprinted assessment sheets? (7/2057)

Inpatient medical notes often fail to record important details of patient history and findings on clinical examination. To overcome problems with content and legibility of notes we introduced preprinted notes for the admission of children to this hospital. The quality of the information recorded for 100 children whose admissions were clerked with the preprinted notes was compared with that recorded for 100 whose admissions were recorded with the traditional notes. All case notes were selected randomly and retrospectively from traditional notes written from April to October 1993 and from preprinted notes written from October 1993 to April 1994. The quality of information was assessed according to the presence or absence of 25 agreed core clinical details and the number of words per clerking. In admissions recorded with the preprinted notes the mean number of core clinical details present was significantly higher than those recorded with traditional notes (24.0 v 17.6, p < 0.00001). Admissions recorded with the preprinted notes were also significantly shorter (mean 144 words v 184 words, p < 0.0001). The authors conclude that information about children admitted to hospital is both more complete and more succinct when recorded using preprinted admission sheets.  (+info)

Falling diarrhoea mortality in Northeastern Brazil: did ORT play a role? (8/2057)

The impact of oral rehydration therapy (ORT) on the recent decline in diarrhoea mortality in the northeast of Brazil was studied. Proportionate infant mortality fell from 32% in 1980 to 17% in 1989 and infant deaths attributed to diarrhoea dropped from 41% to 25%, resulting in an overall reduction of 57%. Similar decreases were observed for children aged 1-4 years. Diarrhoea admissions also fell from 57% of infant hospitalizations in 1980 to 30% in 1990. None of the other major causes of death or admissions showed such decline. ORT was introduced in the early 1980s, being used in 35% of all episodes in 1991 and in 62% of those regarded as severe by the mother. Other changes included a worsening of socioeconomic conditions and increases in water supply, vaccine coverage, breastfeeding duration and nutritional status. A simulation model estimated that changes in factors other than ORT would lead to a 21% reduction in infant diarrhoea mortality, or about one-third of the actual decline. Finally, an ecological analysis showed that ORT use rates were inversely correlated to infant diarrhoea mortality (r=-0.61; p=0.04). Despite the shortcomings of the available data, these findings suggest an important impact of ORT on diarrhoea mortality.  (+info)

Data were analyzed for 90,345 housed patient admissions (mean cost, $12,555) and 3081 homeless patient admissions (mean cost, $13,516). After adjustment for age, gender, and resource intensity weight, homeless patient admissions cost $2559 more than housed patient admissions (95% CI, $2053, $3066). For patients on medical and surgical services, much of this difference was explained by more alternate level of care days spent in the hospital, during which patients did not require the level of services provided in an acute care facility. Homeless patient admissions on the psychiatric service cost $1058 more than housed patient admissions (95% CI, $480, $1635) even after adjustment for length of stay ...

According to the fall 2012 Economic Outlook from Charlotte-based Premier Healthcare Alliance, hospitals and health systems nationwide are projecting the growth of their capital expenditure budgets will drop below 2010 levels as they anticipate patient admission reduction.. Forty-one percent of 617 survey respondents - primarily hospital C-suite, and materials and practice area managers - are projecting their capital spending to increase compared to last year. This is down from 42 percent in fall 2010 and a two-year high of 46 percent in spring 2011. More specifically, when respondents were asked about the area in which they expect to make the largest capital investment over the next year, 43 percent cited healthcare information technology (HIT) and telecommunications, up from 34 percent in spring 2011.. Investments in imaging, lab, and surgical and clinical equipment are forecasted to drop by more than 23 percent compared to just six months ago, according to survey results. Product ...

Background: institutionalisation following acute hospital admission is common and yet poorly described, with policy documents advising against this transition. Objective: to characterise the individuals admitted to a care home on discharge from an acute hospital admission and to describe their assessment. Design and setting: a retrospective cohort study of people admitted to a single large Scottish teaching hospital. Subjects: 100 individuals admitted to the acute hospital from home and discharged to a care home. Methods: a single researcher extracted data from ward-based case notes. Results: people discharged to care homes were predominantly female (62%), widowed (52%) older adults (mean 83.6 years) who lived alone (67%). About 95% had a diagnosed cognitive disorder or evidence of cognitive impairment. One-third of cases of delirium were unrecognised. Hospital stays were long (median 78.5 days; range 14-231 days) and transfers between settings were common. Family request, dementia, mobility, ...
RESULTS: A total of 54% out of 572 consultations resulted in admission. Patients were less likely to be admitted if baseline functional status was poor (OR, 0.29; 95% CI 0.17-0.50), if a do-not-resuscitate order was present (OR, 0.44; 95% CI, 0.21-0.89), and if the MICU attending spent more than 25% of professional time in MICU (OR, 2.44; 95% CI, 1.37-4.32). Patients were more likely to be admitted if functional status at time of MICU consultation was poor (OR, 2.30; 95% CI 1.46-3.48). Patients age, insurance, ethnicity, severity of illness, presence of malignancy, or whether patients primary physician was on staff were not independently associated with MICU admission decisions. MICU attendings rarely cited functional status as reason for MICU refusal on the consult forms ...
Results Presentations to the ED and subsequent admissions to hospital beds are not random and can be predicted. Forecast accuracy worsened as the forecast time intervals became smaller: when forecasting monthly admissions, the best MAPE was approximately 2%, for daily admissions, 11%; for 4-hourly admissions, 38%; and for hourly admissions, 50%. Presentations were more easily forecast than admissions (daily MAPE ∼7%). When validating accuracy at additional hospitals, forecasts for urban facilities were generally more accurate than regional forecasts (accuracy is related to sample size). Subgroups within the data with more than 10 admissions or presentations per day had forecast errors statistically similar to the entire dataset. The study also included a software implementation of the models, resulting in a data dashboard for bed managers. ...

To establish which major disorders are susceptible to increased mortality following acute admissions on weekends, compared with week days, and how this may be explained. Cohorts based on national administrative inpatient and mortality data for 14,168,443 hospitalised patients in England and 913,068 in Wales who were admitted for 66 disorders that were associated with at least 200 deaths within 30 days of acute admission. The main outcome measure was the weekend mortality effect (defined as the conventional mortality odds ratio for admissions on weekends compared with week days). There were large, statistically significant weekend mortality effects (| 20%) in England for 22 of the 66 conditions and in both countries for 14. These 14 were 4 of 13 cancers (oesophageal, colorectal, lung and lymphomas); 4 of 13 circulatory disorders (angina, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral vascular disease and arterial embolism & thrombosis); one of 8 respiratory disorders (pleural effusion); 2 of 12 gastrointestinal
Objective: To quantify the additional hospital length of stay (LOS) and costs associated with in-hospital falls and fall injuries in acute hospitals in Australia. Design, setting and participants: A multisite prospective cohort study conducted during 2011-2013 in the control wards of a falls prevention trial (6-PACK). The trial included all admissions to 12 acute medical and surgical wards of six Australian hospitals. In-hospital falls data were collected from medical record reviews, daily verbal reports by ward nurse unit managers, and hospital incident reporting and administrative databases. Clinical costing data were linked for three of the six participating hospitals to calculate patient-level costs. Outcome measures: Hospital LOS and costs associated with in-hospital falls and fall injuries for each patient admission. Results: We found that 966 of a total of 27 026 hospital admissions (3.6%) involved at least one fall, and 313 (1.2%) at least one fall injury, a total of 1330 falls and 418 ...
Methods: This was a retrospective, observational, chart review study of data collected from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2018. A total of 200 MDRO isolates were randomly selected for chart review, comprised of 25 Gram-positive and 25 Gram-negative isolates from each year. Patients age 18 or older and who grew an MDRO that met laboratory-defined criteria were included in the study. Patients under the age of 18 or those who had positive cultures while not admitted as inpatients were excluded. The primary endpoint was to assess the overall prevalence of MDRO infections over the past four years. The data was normalized to reflect the incidence based on 100 patient admissions and compared between the four years. Secondary endpoints included the prevalence of risk factors (coexisting infection, prior antibiotic exposure, previous ICU admission, recent surgery, previous hospitalization, residence in a nursing home or long-term care facility, history of cancer or immunodeficiency, central lines or ...

Data collected in the Weekly Returns Service are based on general practice recognition of new episodes. The congruence of temporal variations of these data with those in hospital admissions was striking, especially in children. This suggests that what doctors label as a new episode of asthma is the same whether they work in the community or in hospital. The numbers of episodes presenting to GPs were at their lowest in August. There were very similar reductions in hospital admissions at the same time which were particularly noticeable in school children who were most likely to be on holiday. Thus, it is unlikely that there was a significant bypassing of general practice with direct access to hospital at this time of year. Some anomalies in hospital admission data between weeks 9 and 13 were observed for adults which we suspect must be due to deficiencies in recording of hospital based data towards the end of the financial year (for accountancy purposes, the financial year ends in week 13). We can ...
Calderón-Larrañaga et al reported PCT GPs/100 000 patients to have had a multivariate regression coefficient of 0.995 (95% CI 0.992 to 1.00) with respect to hospital admissions. While not statistically significant, even with an upper 95% CI limit of 0.995 the effect size would have been so small that the predictive power of the number of GPs/100 000 would have been irrelevant in practice. In their Poisson regression of GP-based factors on hospital admission count, the effect of practice GPs/100 000 patients had an incidence rate ratio of 0.998 (95% CI 0.998 to 0.999). This is harder to interpret. The dependent variable was the count of COPD admissions/practice in any year of 3 years. The predictor variable, the number of GPs/100 000 population at practice level, is also hard to interpret. Its mean was 60 with an IQR between 10 and 180. This suggests that in the bottom 25% of practices there was less than 1 GP per 10 000 patients, with more than 1 GP per 550 patients in the top 25%. The IQR for ...
PURPOSE: As global initiatives increase patient access to surgical treatments, there is a need to define optimal levels of perioperative care. Our aim was to describe the relationship between the provision and use of critical care resources and postoperative mortality. METHODS: Planned analysis of data collected during an international 7-day cohort study of adults undergoing elective in-patient surgery. We used risk-adjusted mixed-effects logistic regression models to evaluate the association between admission to critical care immediately after surgery and in-hospital mortality. We evaluated hospital-level associations between mortality and critical care admission immediately after surgery, critical care admission to treat life-threatening complications, and hospital provision of critical care beds. We evaluated the effect of national income using interaction tests. RESULTS: 44,814 patients from 474 hospitals in 27 countries were available for analysis. Death was more frequent amongst patients admitted
Admission to Graduate Programs differs from undergraduate admission, as admission decisions at the graduate level are made by the individual academic departments. The graduate catalog is the final authority on requirements for your program of interest. Applicants must have completed or nearly completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. Bachelors degree from a regionally accredited institution. Official transcripts with the degree posted are required prior to beginning of graduate classes.. International students or students with transcripts from countries outside the U.S. have additional documents and/or transcript evaluations required. Plan to begin the application process at least nine months in advance of when you would like to begin your program. Your completed application packet, which includes both general admission requirements and individual program requirements, should be submitted to the Office of Admissions by the posted admission deadlines. Send your application packet, transcripts ...
Introduction: Violence is increasingly recognised as a major public health issue yet, health data are underutilised for describing the problem or developing responses. We use English emergency hospital admissions for assault over four years to examine assault demography and contribution to health inequalities. Methods: Geodemographic cross-sectional analyses utilising records of all individuals in England (n=120,643) admitted between 1st April 2002 and 31st March 2006. Results: Over four years, rates of admission increased by 29.56% across England. Admissions peaked on Saturdays (22.34%) and Sundays (20.38%). Higher rates were associated with deprivation across all ages, including those ,15 years, with a six fold increase in admission rates between the poorest and wealthiest quintiles of residence. Logistic regression analyses indicate males are 5.59 times more likely to be admitted to hospital for assault and such admissions peak in those aged 15-29 years. Modelling based on national assault ...

Results In the 12 months prior to introduction of the individual care plans, the 32 patients accounted for 858 ED attendances and 209 admissions to hospital. In 12 months after introduction of the care plans, the number of ED attendances fell to 517, with only 77 hospital admissions. Median number of hospital admissions (as a percentage of ED attendances) fell from 18.8% to 7.1% (p=0.014) after introduction of the care plan. There were also reductions in median number of ED attendances (19 vs 5, p=0.001), median number of radiology tests (4 vs 1, p=0.001) and median number of blood tests (55 vs 12, p,0.001). ...
Differences in hospital staffing may influence outcomes for patients with acute conditions, including acute exacerbations of COPD, depending on which day of week the patients are admitted. This study was conducted to determine whether weekend admission increases the risk of dying in the hospital.. We analysed the clinical data of 289,077 adults with acute exacerbations of COPD admitted to the hospital at any public centre in Spain, in 2006 and 2007. We analysed day of admission, demographic, medical history and comorbidity for their association with death rate. During the study period there were 35,544 (12.4%) deaths during admission in COPD patients. Weekend admissions were associated with a significantly higher in-hospital mortality (12.9%) than weekday admissions (12.1%) among COPD patients (odds ratio [OR], 1.07; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.04-1.10). The differences in mortality persisted after adjustment for age, gender, and co-existing disorders (1.05 OR 95% CI 1.02-1.08). Analyses of ...

A computer-based hierarchical method was developed to code conditions leading to admission to intensive care in the UK. The hierarchy had five tiers: surgical status, body system, anatomical site, physiological or pathological process and medical condition. The hierarchy was populated initially using the free-text descriptions of the reason for admission from 10,806 admissions recorded as part of the Intensive Care Societys UK APACHE II study. After refinement and error-checking, a prospective evaluation was undertaken on 22,059 admissions to 62 UK intensive care units. Individual units coded between 60 and 1610 (mean 356) admissions. All but 50 (0.2%) of the admissions could be coded and 38 units coded every admission. Fifty admissions (0.2%) could not be coded within 24 h of admission but were coded subsequently when more information became available. Of the admissions, 96.1% were coded at all levels of the hierarchy in the coding method. Six hundred and thirty-seven of the 741 unique conditions (85

The response has been quite vigorous, Blum said. We are approaching a membership of nearly 200 people. Over the next year, I could easily see our membership exceeding 300 to 400 people.. The most surprising part about this wave of support is that the students who decide to involve themselves with this lawsuit are doing so for mostly selfless motives.. If the lawsuit is won, it wont change or reverse any admissions decisions, but it can restructure a potentially flawed system.. To those who were denied admission, that is most we can offer at the moment, Blum said. We might be able to file additional lawsuits depending on what information is uncovered. Those students can be gratified in knowing that the schools that wrongfully denied them are being targeted and that future generations including younger sisters, brothers or cousins - wont have their chances of admission affected by these pernicious quotas.. The University of California, Berkeley, another top-tier school, represents a stark ...
Objective. To examine the relationship between social factors and planned and unplanned hospital admissions among older people.. Data Sources/Study Setting. 2011 data from the Swedish Panel Study of Living Conditions of the Oldest Old (SWEOLD) and data from the Swedish National Patient Register until December 31, 2012.. Study Design. The study had a prospective design. Data were analyzed via Cox proportional hazard regressions with variables entered as blocks (social factors, sociodemographic and ability factors, health factors).. Data Collection. Data were collected via interviews with people aged 76+ (n = 931).. Principal Findings. Living in institutions was negatively associated with planned admissions (hazard ratio (HR): 0.29; confidence interval (CI): 0.09-0.88), while being in receipt of home help was positively associated with unplanned admissions (HR: 1.57; CI: 1.15-2.14). Low levels of social contacts and social activity predicted unplanned admissions in bivariate analyses only. Higher ...
The CSUSB campus policy for admission to a post-baccalaureate program is a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50. If the cumulative GPA is below 2.50, the graduate admissions evaluators will also calculate the GPA of the last 90 units attempted. Title V regulations state that the absolute minimum GPA for admission is 2.50; therefore, if both the cumulative GPA and the last 90 GPA are below 2.50, admission will be denied. Applications that meet the minimum GPA requirements are sent to the program for an admission decision. Please keep in mind that each program may have additional admission requirements. ...

Objective: To determine the effect of the introduction of an acute medical admissions unit (AMAU) on key quality efficiency and outcome indicator comparisons between medical teams as assessed by funnel plots.. Methods: A retrospective analysis was performed of data relating to emergency medical patients admitted to St James Hospital, Dublin between 1 January 2002 and 31 December 2004, using data on discharges from hospital recorded in the hospital in-patient enquiry system. The base year was 2002 during which patients were admitted to a variety of wards under the care of a named consultant physician. In 2003, two centrally located wards were reconfigured to function as an AMAU, and all emergency patients were admitted directly to this unit. The quality indicators examined between teams were length of stay (LOS) ,30 days, LOS ,30 days, and readmission rates.. Results: The impact of the AMAU reduced overall hospital LOS from 7 days in 2002 to 5 days in 2003/04 (p,0.0001). There was no change in ...

Soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) is the soluble form of the membrane-bound receptor (uPAR) expressed predominantly on various immune cells. Elevated plasma suPAR concentration is associated with increased mortality in various patient groups, and it is speculated that suPAR is a low-grade inflammation marker reflecting on disease severity. The aim of this prospective observational study was to determine if the plasma concentration of suPAR is associated with admission time, re-admission, disease severity/Charlson Comorbidity Index Score, and mortality. We included 543 patients with various diseases from a Danish Acute Medical Unit during a two month period. A triage unit ensured that only medical patients were admitted to the Acute Medical Unit. SuPAR was measured on plasma samples drawn upon admission. Patients were followed-up for three months after inclusion by their unique civil registry number and using Danish registries to determine admission times, readmissions,

AU - Moloney, Edward D.. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - Background: The implementation of workplace smoking bans has contributed to a significant reduction in the incidence of acute coronary syndrome admissions, but their influence on adult acute pulmonary disease admissions is unclear. We sought to assess the impact of a national smoking ban on nationwide admissions of individuals of working age with acute pulmonary illness. Methods: Data relating to emergency hospital admissions of subjects aged 20 to 70 years preceding and succeeding the implementation of the Irish smoking ban were obtained from a central registry. Population, weather, pollution, and influenza data were obtained from the relevant authorities. Poisson regression analysis was used to assess adjusted risk of emergency hospital ...
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate trends in population-based mortality, hospital admission and case fatality rates for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) from 1979 to 1999. METHODS: This was an analysis of routine statistics from 79 495 death certificates in England and Wales and 3217 hospital inpatient admissions in the Oxford Region. RESULTS: Mortality rates for all AAAs increased between 1979 and 1999 from 13 to 25 per million in women and from 80 to 115 per million in men. Admission rates increased in the same time interval from three to 22 admissions per million per year in women, and from 52 to 149 per million per year in men. Case fatality rates for all non-ruptured AAAs that were operated on decreased from 25.8 to 9.0 per cent and for all ruptured AAAs from 69.9 to 54.4 per cent. CONCLUSION: Mortality rates and hospital admission rates for AAA rose in men and even more so in women between 1979 and 1999. Perioperative mortality for ruptured AAA declined a little during the study

Background: Medical education worldwide is more expensive compared to other university courses due to the structure of the training into two phases: basic medical sciences and clinical sciences, each with extensive syllabuses and involves an array of professionals in various specialties. The burden of medical education was largely borne by the government in Nigeria until recently when the private sector forayed into the provision of tertiary education including medical education. Methods: The study was a cross-sectional survey study. All 94 final year medical students of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, a private sector-owned university in South Western Nigeria, were invited to participate in the study. The institutional ethical approval was sought and obtained (ERC/2020/04/07/364A). Structured self-administered questionnaires were used to collect relevant data.

Nicole Le Saux is Associate Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Ottawa *. As physicians we should be concerned about the inappropriate use of antibiotics. Have you ever had a patient with an extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL), E. coli or Klebsiella urinary tract infection, a Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) or a drug-resistant N. gonorrhoeae?. Whereas resistant bacteria and CDI were rare a decade ago, these clinical situations are now commonplace in hospitals, long term care facilities and emergency departments. According to the the rate of CDI in hospitalized patients is 3.4 cases per 1000 patient admissions (approximately one in every 300 patients admitted). As of 2014, 18.2% of isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoeae were resistant to penicillin with worrisome decreased susceptibility to cefixime, ceftriaxone and azithromycin. ...continue reading →. ...

How exactly does Signapps work?. Signapps is a mobile-first secure communication and collaboration platform. It enables multi-disciplinary teams of healthcare practitioners to collaborate around the care of a patient. The medium for doing this is a mobile app - a secure messenger which allows group chats about a patient between a team of medical professionals (we call them Patient Threads). The Patient Thread is similar to Whatsapp groups except that the chat space is secure, used for professional purposes only and conversations are centred around a patient.. The product can be integrated into existing patient admission and electronic health record systems as well as service providers such as pathology and radiology companies. The idea is to push important information about patients from these systems into Signapps Patient Threads.. The product comes bundled with a number of value-added features, examples include digital forms for data gathering; workflows for process automation and chatbots to ...

Complications of liver cirrhosis (LC) are the main cause of hospital admissions in liver units. In areas where hepatitis C virus (HCV) is highly prevalent, most of these admissions are attributable to HCV-LC. We aimed to assess the impact of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) in the profile of liver disease patients admitted into a referral liver unit from a University Hospital.We registered hospital admissions due to LC in our Liver Unit from 2011-2014 (pre-DAA period) and from 2015-2019 (post-DAA period).From a total of 14,865 hospital admissions, 10,053 were due to LC (corresponding to 6,256 patients). The number and proportion of hospital admissions due to HCV-LC remained stable during the period 2011-2014 (525 per year, 48.8% of the total), but decreased progressively after 2015 (p,0.001), reaching less than 300 (27.1%) admissions in 2019. Similarly, HCV-LC accounted for 3,885 inpatient days per year (44.9%) during the pre-DAA period and decreased steadily after 2015 (p ,0.001), reaching only ...
Background and design. HIV is a major contributor to childhood morbidity and mortality in South Africa. We describe HIV prevalence, disease profile, outcome and missed opportunities for early intervention in a cohort of HIV-infected children admitted to Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital's general paediatric wards between 1 October 2007 and 31 December 2007. Results. Of 1 510 admissions, 446 (29.5%) were HIV infected. Many children (238, 54.1%) were newly diagnosed in hospital and most had advanced HIV disease (405, 92%). The principal admission diagnoses were pneumonia (165, 37.5%), gastro-enteritis (97, 22%), sepsis (86, 19.5%) and tuberculosis (92, 21%). Of children identified as HIV infected before admission, 128/202 (63.4%) were not accessing antiretroviral treatment (ART), although 121/128 (94.5%) met ART eligibility criteria. Of 364 ART-naïve eligible children, only 15 (4.1%) were commenced on ART as inpatients. Problems with PMTCT implementation in infants under 6 months (N=166) included

When patients attend the emergency department with facial fractures that require surgery and are immediately admitted, surgery can be delayed as theatre time is prioritised for other more urgent patients. One solution is to send the patient home and admit them as an elective patient at a later date. The aim of this study was to investigate the outcomes of patients admitted directly and those seen as elective patients following fracture of the mandible or zygomatic complex. Data were taken from the hospital episodes statistics (HES) dataset for 2011-2018, and all hospital admissions for mandibular and zygomatic complex fractures within the National Health Service (NHS) in England were extracted. Patients were categorised as those admitted on attendance at the emergency department and given definitive treatment during the admission, and those not admitted on attendance at the emergency department but discharged home and seen as elective admissions within 30 days of attendance. Data were available ...

ESA (European Society of Anaesthesiology). A systematic review and meta-analysis of hospital data worldwide, presented as this years Euroanaesthesia meeting in Stockholm, adds further evidence that patients admitted to hospital at weekends have higher mortality than those admitted on weekdays. The study is by Dr Hiroshi Hoshijima, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, and colleagues.. The analysis included 72 studies from various world regions, covering 55,053,719 participants. The authors found that weekend admission was associated with increased morality of between 15% and 17% depending on the statistical technique used.. Subgroup analysis revealed that patients admitted during the weekend were at a higher risk of death than weekday admission in patients in almost all categories. There are at least two potential explanations for our results.

Discussion. The present study investigated whether a brief ICU stay could improve outcomes in patients with severe comorbidities after miscellaneous elective surgeries. Based on the retrospective analysis of patient data, postoperative ICU admission failed to affect any meaningful outcomes. The rate of emergency ICU admission or readmission was significantly higher in the non-ICU group than in the ICU group after matching. However, this difference disappeared when the rate of postoperative prolonged ICU stay in the ICU group was combined with the rate of readmission. This study was conducted retrospectively. Therefore, it is difficult to judge whether prolonged ICU stay prevented ICU readmission or whether some of the elective ICU patients deteriorated during the first ICU day as much as non-ICU patients who would be emergently admitted to the ICU. Interestingly, the additional multivariate logistic regression analysis of the entire cohort confirmed that postoperative ICU admission was not ...

  • However, they also reduce acute care utilization, as patients are less likely to choose the emergency room when a strong relationship with their primary care provider exists. (
  • But, as healthcare increasingly emphasizes the importance of team-based care in meeting the needs of patients, how can the primary care team be optimized to support strong relationship? (
  • Consider avoidable ED utilization: If the goal is for patients to think of primary care as their 'go to' for care, that is dependent upon a strong relationship with their primary care team. (
  • There is great opportunity, then, to look at and optimize the patient-Care Manager relationship in our efforts to improve patient experience, health outcomes, and appropriate care utilization. (
  • Not only are Care Managers uniquely equipped to engage in these practices themselves within their own relationships with patients, but they are also uniquely positioned to promote them in the patient-provider relationship as well. (
  • So, as we push for greater team-based care, we must consider how such a model can positively influence patient relationships. (
  • In doing so, healthcare must support the integration of care teams, encourage consistent messaging to patients about those care teams, and ensure those in Care Management roles are equipped and confident in their ability to develop meaningful relationships with the people they serve. (
