Interfacility or intrahospital transfer of patients. Intrahospital transfer is usually to obtain a specific kind of care and interfacility transfer is usually for economic reasons as well as for the type of care provided.
A written agreement for the transfer of patients and their medical records from one health care institution to another.
Moving or repositioning patients within their beds, from bed to bed, bed to chair, or otherwise from one posture or surface to another.
Conveying ill or injured individuals from one place to another.
Moving or bringing something from a lower level to a higher one. The concept encompasses biomechanic stresses resulting from work done in transferring objects from one plane to another as well as the effects of varying techniques of patient handling and transfer.
The transmission of messages to staff and patients within a hospital.
General or unspecified injuries to the posterior part of the trunk. It includes injuries to the muscles of the back.
The process by which decisions are made in an institution or other organization.
The introduction of functional (usually cloned) GENES into cells. A variety of techniques and naturally occurring processes are used for the gene transfer such as cell hybridization, LIPOSOMES or microcell-mediated gene transfer, ELECTROPORATION, chromosome-mediated gene transfer, TRANSFECTION, and GENETIC TRANSDUCTION. Gene transfer may result in genetically transformed cells and individual organisms.
The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
The naturally occurring transmission of genetic information between organisms, related or unrelated, circumventing parent-to-offspring transmission. Horizontal gene transfer may occur via a variety of naturally occurring processes such as GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; and TRANSFECTION. It may result in a change of the recipient organism's genetic composition (TRANSFORMATION, GENETIC).

Audit of thrombolysis initiated in an accident and emergency department. (1/556)

Early thrombolytic therapy after acute myocardial infarction is important in reducing mortality. To evaluate a system for reducing in-hospital delays to thrombolysis pain to needle and door to needle times to thrombolysis were audited in a major accident and emergency (A and E) department of a district general hospital and its coronary care unit (CCU), situated about 5 km away. Baseline performance over six months was assessed retrospectively from notes of 43 consecutive patients (group 1) transferred to the CCU before receiving thrombolysis. Subsequently, selected patients (23) were allowed to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department before transfer to the CCU. The agent was administered by medical staff in the department after receiving oral confirmation of myocardial infarction from the admitting medical officer in the CCU on receipt of fax transmission of the electrocardiogram. A second prospective audit during six months from the start of the new procedure established time intervals in 23 patients eligible to receive thrombolysis in the A and E department (group 2b) and 30 ineligible patients who received thrombolysis in the CCU (group 2a). The groups did not differ significantly in case mix, pre-hospital delay, or transfer time to the CCU. In group 2b door to needle time and pain to needle time were reduced significantly (geometric mean 38 min v 121 min (group 2a) and 128 min (group 1); 141 min v 237 min (group 2a) and 242 min (group 1) respectively, both p < 0.0001). The incidence of adverse effects was not significantly different. Nine deaths occurred (six in group 1, three in group 2b), an in-hospital mortality of 9.9%. Thrombolysis can be safely instituted in the A and E department in selected patients, significantly reducing delay to treatment.  (+info)

Turfing: patients in the balance. (2/556)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the language of "turfing," a ubiquitous term applied to some transfers of patients between physicians, in order to reveal aspects of the ideology of internal medicine residency. SETTING: Academic internal medicine training program. MEASUREMENTS: Using direct observation and a focus group, we collected audiotapes of medical residents' discussions of turfing. These data were analyzed using interpretive and conversation analytic methods. The focus group was used both to validate and to further elaborate a schematic conceptual framework for turfing. MAIN RESULTS: The decision to call a patient "turfed" depends on the balance of the values of effectiveness of therapy, continuity of care, and power. For example, if the receiving physician cannot provide a more effective therapy than can the transferring physician, medical residents consider the transfer inappropriate, and call the patient a turf. With appropriate transfers, these residents see their service as honorable, but with turfs, residents talk about the irresponsibility of transferring physicians, burdens of service, abuse, and powerlessness. CONCLUSIONS: Internal medicine residents can feel angry and frustrated about receiving patients perceived to be rejected by other doctors, and powerless to prevent the transfer of those patients for whom they may have no effective treatment or continuous relationship. This study has implications for further exploration of how the relationships between physicians may uphold or conflict with the underlying moral tenets of the medical profession.  (+info)

A check list for regional planners is provided. Supplementary equipment is discussed and action cards for key roles in the paediatric hospital response are shown. Particular emphasis is placed on management of the secondary-tertiary interface including the special roles of paediatric assessment teams and paediatric transfer teams. A paediatric primary triage algorithm is provided. The important role of local interpretation of guidance is emphasised.  (+info)

Paying a premium: how patient complexity affects costs and profit margins. (4/556)

OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND: Tertiary medical centers continue to be under extreme pressure to deliver high-complexity care, but paradoxically there is considerable pressure within these institutions to reduce their emphasis on tertiary care and refocus their efforts to develop a more community-like practice. The genesis of this pressure is the perceived profitability of routine surgical activity when compared with more complex care. The purpose of this study is to assess how the total cost and profit (loss) margin can vary for an entire trauma service. The authors also evaluate payments for specific trauma-related diagnostic-related groups (DRGs) and analyze how hospital margins were affected based on mortality outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors analyzed the actual cost of all trauma discharges (n = 692) at their level I trauma center for fiscal year 1997. Data were obtained from the trauma registry and the hospital cost accounting system. Total cost was defined as the sum of the variable, fixed, and indirect costs associated with each patient. Margin was defined as expected payments minus total cost. The entire population and all DRGs with 10 or more patients were stratified based on survival outcome, Injury Severity Score, insurance status, and length of stay. The mean total costs for survivors and nonsurvivors within these various categories and their margins were evaluated. RESULTS: The profit margin on nonsurvivors was $5,898 greater than for survivors, even though the mean total cost for nonsurvivors was $28,821 greater. Within the fixed fee arrangement, approximately 44% of transfers had a negative margin. Both survivors and nonsurvivors become increasingly profitable out to 20 days and subsequently become unprofitable beyond 21 days, but nonsurvivors were more profitable than survivors. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variance in both the costs and margins within trauma-related DRGs. The DRG payment system disproportionately reimburses providers for nonsurvivors, even though on average they are more costly. Because payers are likely to engage in portfolio management, patients can be transferred between hospitals based on the contractual relationship between the payer and the provider. This payment system potentially allows payers to act strategically, sending relatively low-cost patients to hospitals where they use fee-for-service reimbursement and high-cost patients to hospitals where their reimbursement is contractually capped. Although specific to the authors' trauma center and its payer mix, these data demonstrate the profitability of maintaining a level I trauma center and preserving the mission of delivering care to the severely injured.  (+info)

Regional dissemination of vancomycin-resistant enterococci resulting from interfacility transfer of colonized patients. (5/556)

During early 1997, the Siouxland District Health Department (SDHD; Sioux City, IA) reported an increased incidence of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal (VRE) isolates at area health care facilities. To determine the prevalence and risk factors for colonization with VRE strains at 32 health care facilities in the SDHD region, a prevalence survey and case-control study were performed. Of 2266 patients and residents, 1934 (85%) participated, and 40 (2.1%) were positive for (gastrointestinal) VRE colonization. The prevalence of VRE isolates was significantly higher in acute care facilities (ACFs) than in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) (10/152 [6.6%] vs. 30/1782 [1.7%]; odds ratio [OR], 4.1; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.8-9.0). LTCF case patients were significantly more likely than controls to have been inpatients at any ACF (19/30 vs. 12/66; OR, 8.0; 95% CI, 2.7-23.8). Of 40 VRE isolates, 34 (85%) were a related strain. The predominant strain was present in all 12 LTCFs that had at least 1 case patient in each facility. Soon after the introduction of VRE isolates into this region, dissemination to multiple LTCFs resulted from resident transfer from ACFs to LTCFs.  (+info)

Remote telemedical interpretation of neonatal echocardiograms: impact on clinical management in a primary care setting. (6/556)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of telemedical echocardiographically assisted neonatal cardiovascular evaluation in a primary care setting. BACKGROUND: Neonates with congenital heart disease are frequently born far from pediatric subspecialty centers and can be clinically unstable at presentation. Recent advances in telecommunication technology have made it possible to transmit echocardiographic images over long distances. This technology may be beneficial to newborns with heart defects who are born in primary care centers. METHODS: A retrospective review of all telemedical echocardiograms obtained from neonates (aged 1 day to 30 days) was performed. A telemedical link was created using a T-1 transmission line and a standard voice telephone line between the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota (pediatric cardiology site), and the Altru Clinic, Grand Forks, North Dakota (primary care site), which is a general pediatric practice 400 miles from Rochester. Neonates with possible cardiac disorders were identified by the general pediatricians, who then requested telemedical echocardiography. RESULTS: The 133 neonates had 161 T-1 echocardiograms. Median patient age was two days (range, one day to 29 days). One hundred thirty-two of 133 initial echocardiograms (99%) were obtained because of urgent indications. Transmitted images provided adequate diagnostic information in all patients. Seventy-nine neonates (59%) had a change in medical management or required cardiology follow-up. An immediate change in management occurred in 32 patients (24%), including seven in whom emergency transfer was either arranged or avoided. CONCLUSIONS: Telemedical echocardiography provides accurate diagnostic data in neonates. Rapid telediagnosis facilitates appropriate care of sick neonates with possible congenital heart disease in the primary care setting. Unnecessary long-distance transfers can be avoided with this technology.  (+info)

Acute medical bed usage by nursing home residents. (7/556)

An increasing number of elderly patients in nursing home care appears to be presenting to hospital for acute medical admission. A survey of acute hospital care was undertaken to establish accurately the number and character of such admissions. A total of 1300 acute medical beds was surveyed in Northern Ireland in June 1996 and January 1997 on a single day using a standardised proforma. Demographic details, diagnosis and length of admission were recorded. A total of 84 patients over the age of 65 (mean 79.5 years) admitted from nursing home care was identified in June 1996 and a total of 125 (mean 83.3 years) in January 1997. A total of 88 (70%) of admissions in 1997 were accompanied by a general practitioner's letter. The assessing doctor judged that 12 (9.6%) of admissions in 1997 could have had investigations and or treatment reasonably instituted in a nursing home. The proportion of acute medical beds occupied by nursing home residents was 6% in June 1996 rising to 10% in January 1997. The study accurately identifies the significant contribution of nursing home patients to acute medical admissions and the low proportion in whom admission was unnecessary. Closure of long stay hospital facilities should be accompanied by investment in community medical services and also reinvestment in acute hospital care for elderly people.  (+info)

Hospital transfer for primary coronary angioplasty in high risk patients with acute myocardial infarction. (8/556)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the feasibility, safety, and associated time delays of interhospital transfer in patients with acute myocardial infarction for primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). DESIGN AND PATIENTS: Prospective observational study with group comparison in a single centre. 68 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction transferred for primary PTCA from other hospitals (group A) were compared with 78 patients admitted directly to the referral centre (group B). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patient groups were analysed with regard to baseline characteristics, time intervals from onset of chest pain to balloon angioplasty, hospital stay, and follow up outcome. RESULTS: Patients in group A presented with a higher rate of cardiogenic shock initially than patients in group B (25% v 6%, p = 0.01) and had been resuscitated more frequently before PTCA (22% v 5%, p = 0.01). No deaths or other serious complications occurred during interhospital transfer. Median transfer time was 63 (range 40-115) minutes for helicopter transport (median 42 (28-122) km, n = 14), and 50 (18-110) minutes by ground ambulance (median 8 (5-68) km, n = 54). The median time interval from the decision to perform coronary arteriography to balloon inflation was 96 (45-243) minutes in group A and 52 (17-214) minutes in group B (p = 0.0001). In transferred patients (group A) the transportation associated delay and the longer in-hospital median decision time (50 (10-1120) minutes in group A v 15 (0-210) minutes in group B, p = 0.002) concurred with a longer total period of ischaemia (239 (114-1307) minutes in group A v 182 (75-1025) minutes in group B, p = 0.02) since the beginning of chest pain. Success of PTCA (TIMI 3 flow in 95% of all patients), in-hospital mortality (7% v 9%, mortality for patients not in cardiogenic shock 0% v 4%), and follow up after median 235 days was similarly favourable in groups A and B, respectively. Only one hospital survivor (group A) died during follow up. CONCLUSION: Interhospital transport for primary PTCA in high risk patients with acute myocardial infarction is safe and feasible within a reasonable period of time. Short and medium term outcome is favourable. Optimising the decision process and transport logistics may further improve outcome by reducing the total time of ischaemia.  (+info)

A "patient transfer" is a medical procedure that involves moving a patient from one location, piece of medical equipment, or healthcare provider to another. This can include:

1. Transferring a patient from a bed to a stretcher, wheelchair, or other mobility device.
2. Moving a patient from a hospital bed to a surgical table or imaging machine such as an MRI or CT scanner.
3. Transporting a patient between healthcare facilities, such as from a hospital to a rehabilitation center or long-term care facility.
4. Transferring a patient between medical teams during the course of their treatment, like when they are moved from the emergency department to the intensive care unit.

Patient transfers require careful planning and execution to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient, as well as to prevent any potential injuries or complications for both the patient and the healthcare providers involved in the process. Proper techniques, equipment, and communication are essential for a successful patient transfer.

A "Transfer Agreement" in a medical context typically refers to an arrangement between healthcare facilities or systems that outlines the procedures and conditions for transferring a patient from one facility to another. This may include details such as the responsible parties for the transfer, the mode of transportation, and the specific clinical information related to the patient's condition and treatment needs.

Such agreements can be particularly important in situations where patients require specialized care that is not available at their current facility, or when they need to be transferred to a higher level of care, such as from a hospital to a long-term acute care facility. Transfer agreements help ensure continuity of care and can also establish clear expectations for all parties involved, which can be critical in emergency situations where timely and effective communication is essential.

'Moving and lifting patients' is a term used in the medical field to refer to the process of safely transferring patients from one location or position to another. This can include tasks such as:

1. Transfers: Moving patients between surfaces, such as from a bed to a wheelchair, or from a wheelchair to a toilet.
2. Repositioning: Changing a patient's position in bed to prevent pressure sores, promote comfort, and facilitate breathing.
3. Ambulation: Assisting patients with walking or moving about in their environment.

Proper techniques are crucial in moving and lifting patients to prevent injury to both the patient and the caregiver. These techniques often involve the use of mechanical lifting devices, such as hoists or slide boards, and require proper body mechanics and communication between the caregiver and the patient.

Transportation of patients, in a medical context, refers to the process of moving patients safely and comfortably from one location to another. This can include the movement of patients within a healthcare facility (such as from their hospital room to the radiology department for testing) or between facilities (such as from a hospital to a rehabilitation center). Patient transportation may be required for various reasons, including receiving medical treatment, undergoing diagnostic tests, attending appointments, or being discharged from the hospital.

The process of patient transportation involves careful planning and coordination to ensure the safety, comfort, and well-being of the patient during transit. It may involve the use of specialized equipment, such as stretchers, wheelchairs, or ambulances, depending on the patient's medical needs and mobility status. Trained personnel, such as paramedics, nurses, or patient care technicians, are often involved in the transportation process to monitor the patient's condition, provide medical assistance if needed, and ensure a smooth and uneventful transfer.

It is essential to follow established protocols and guidelines for patient transportation to minimize risks and ensure the best possible outcomes for patients. This includes assessing the patient's medical status, determining the appropriate mode of transportation, providing necessary care and support during transit, and communicating effectively with all parties involved in the process.

In a medical context, "lifting" generally refers to the act or process of physically moving or supporting an object or person with the use of one's muscles, particularly those in the back, legs, and arms. However, I am a large language model, not a doctor, and this definition is based on general usage rather than specific medical terminology.

Improper lifting techniques can lead to injuries, especially musculoskeletal ones. For this reason, healthcare professionals often provide guidelines for safe lifting, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a wide base of support, keeping the object close to the body, using leg muscles instead of the back, and avoiding twisting or bending at the waist.

In some cases, "lifting" may also refer to medical procedures where a surgeon raises a part of the body during surgery, but this is more commonly referred to as "elevation."

Hospital communication systems refer to the various technologies and methods used within a hospital or healthcare facility to facilitate the sharing and dissemination of information among healthcare professionals, patients, and their families. These systems can include:

1. Electronic Health Records (EHRs): Digital versions of a patient's medical history and treatment plans that can be accessed and updated by authorized healthcare providers.
2. Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) Systems: Electronic systems used by physicians to enter, modify, review, and communicate orders related to a patient's care, such as medication orders or diagnostic tests.
3. Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS): Tools that provide healthcare providers with evidence-based recommendations for patient care based on the patient's EHR data.
4. Telemedicine: The use of telecommunication and information technologies to provide remote clinical services and consultations.
5. Nurse Call Systems: Communication systems used by patients to summon nursing staff in a hospital setting.
6. Paging Systems: One-way communication devices used to send messages or alerts to hospital staff.
7. Wireless Telephony: The use of mobile phones and other wireless devices for communication within the hospital.
8. Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS): Technologies that allow hospitals to track the location of equipment, supplies, and personnel in real-time.
9. Secure Messaging Platforms: Encrypted messaging systems used by healthcare professionals to communicate sensitive patient information.
10. Patient Portals: Secure online platforms that allow patients to access their medical records, communicate with their healthcare providers, and manage their care.

Back injuries refer to damages or traumas that affect the structures of the back, including the muscles, nerves, ligaments, bones, and other tissues. These injuries can occur due to various reasons such as sudden trauma (e.g., falls, accidents), repetitive stress, or degenerative conditions. Common types of back injuries include strains, sprains, herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, and spinal cord injuries. Symptoms may vary from mild discomfort to severe pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness, depending on the severity and location of the injury. Treatment options range from conservative measures like physical therapy and medication to surgical intervention in severe cases.

Organizational decision-making is a management process in which a group or team within an organization makes a judgment or choice among several options or alternatives to achieve specific goals or objectives. This process involves collecting and analyzing information, evaluating alternatives, selecting the best option, and implementing and monitoring the decision. It often requires collaboration, communication, and consensus-building among team members with diverse perspectives and expertise. Effective organizational decision-making can lead to better outcomes, improved performance, and increased innovation, while poor decision-making can result in missed opportunities, wasted resources, and decreased competitiveness.

Gene transfer techniques, also known as gene therapy, refer to medical procedures where genetic material is introduced into an individual's cells or tissues to treat or prevent diseases. This can be achieved through various methods:

1. **Viral Vectors**: The most common method uses modified viruses, such as adenoviruses, retroviruses, or lentiviruses, to carry the therapeutic gene into the target cells. The virus infects the cell and inserts the new gene into the cell's DNA.

2. **Non-Viral Vectors**: These include methods like electroporation (using electric fields to create pores in the cell membrane), gene guns (shooting gold particles coated with DNA into cells), or liposomes (tiny fatty bubbles that can enclose DNA).

3. **Direct Injection**: In some cases, the therapeutic gene can be directly injected into a specific tissue or organ.

The goal of gene transfer techniques is to supplement or replace a faulty gene with a healthy one, thereby correcting the genetic disorder. However, these techniques are still largely experimental and have their own set of challenges, including potential immune responses, issues with accurate targeting, and risks of mutations or cancer development.

Embryo transfer is a medical procedure that involves the transfer of an embryo, which is typically created through in vitro fertilization (IVF), into the uterus of a woman with the aim of establishing a pregnancy. The embryo may be created using the intended parent's own sperm and eggs or those from donors. After fertilization and early cell division, the resulting embryo is transferred into the uterus of the recipient mother through a thin catheter that is inserted through the cervix. This procedure is typically performed under ultrasound guidance to ensure proper placement of the embryo. Embryo transfer is a key step in assisted reproductive technology (ART) and is often used as a treatment for infertility.

Horizontal gene transfer (HGT), also known as lateral gene transfer, is the movement of genetic material between organisms in a manner other than from parent to offspring (vertical gene transfer). In horizontal gene transfer, an organism can take up genetic material directly from its environment and incorporate it into its own genome. This process is common in bacteria and archaea, but has also been observed in eukaryotes including plants and animals.

Horizontal gene transfer can occur through several mechanisms, including:

1. Transformation: the uptake of free DNA from the environment by a cell.
2. Transduction: the transfer of genetic material between cells by a virus (bacteriophage).
3. Conjugation: the direct transfer of genetic material between two cells in physical contact, often facilitated by a conjugative plasmid or other mobile genetic element.

Horizontal gene transfer can play an important role in the evolution and adaptation of organisms, allowing them to acquire new traits and functions rapidly. It is also of concern in the context of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and antibiotic resistance, as it can facilitate the spread of genes that confer resistance or other undesirable traits.
