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)

Rationale: To address the inaccessibility of interventional cardiac services in North Queensland a new cardiac catheterisation laboratory (CCL) was established in Mackay Base Hospital (MBH) in February 2014.. Objective: To determine whether the provision of in-house angiography and/or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) 1) minimises treatment delays 2) further reduces the risk of mortality, recurrent myocardial infarction (MI) and recurrent ischaemia 3) improves patient satisfaction and 4) minimises cost expenditure compared with inter-hospital transfer for patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).. Methods: We compared ACS patients who were transferred to tertiary centres from July 2012 to June 2013 with those who received in-house angiography and/or PCI from February 2015 to January 2016. The primary outcome was the composite of all-cause mortality, recurrent myocardial infarction (MI) or recurrent ischaemia at six months. Pre-specified secondary outcomes were the composite of ...
The nonuniformity of STEMI treatment strategies in the United States contributes to untimely reperfusion therapy and complicates the overall process of STEMI care.6,9 In the current program, the 4-step algorithm provided the STEMI-referral ED physician with standardized pharmacological or mechanical reperfusion options and empowered this physician to activate the process of care at the STEMI-accepting facility without prior cardiologist consultation, a strategy previously demonstrated to reduce reperfusion delays.9 Within the design of the protocol, several important observations were noted. First, despite the primary goal of using interhospital transfer for PPCI, full-dose fibrinolytic therapy was required in ≈10% of this rural patient population. Inclement weather conditions and unanticipated helicopter unavailability contributed to the unexpected interhospital transfer delays, requiring use of an alternative reperfusion strategy. Unlike other transfer PCI programs4 that use controversial ...

This nationally representative study of pediatric transfers between acute-care hospitals in 2012 found that 4.4% of ∼6 million nonpregnancy hospitalizations (and 9.4% of ∼2 million nonneonatal, nonpregnancy hospitalizations) were admitted via transfer from another hospital. Expected factors, such as higher illness severity and rural residence, were independent predictors of being admitted via transfer. Certain principal diagnoses, including neonatal diagnoses, bronchiolitis, and mood disorder, were also associated with higher odds of admission by transfer. However, nonclinical factors including white race (compared with black, Hispanic, and Asian race/ethnicity) and having nonprivate insurance (compared with private insurance) were also independently associated with admission via transfer. When we stratified the model by hospital location/teaching status, we found that racial/ethnic variation in the odds of admission by transfer was greater for urban teaching hospitals than for urban ...
Anemia / Low Haemoglobin Support Group - Heart, Blood and Circulatory System : Critical Window for Heart Attack Transfer Patients is Missed by Most Hospitals, Says Study Discussion - Page : 8
Background: Recognition that primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the preferred reperfusion strategy for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) if delivered in a timely fashion resulted in national efforts successful in reducing time to treatment. To determine whether the decreasing door-to-balloon (DTB) time is associated with a reduction in mortality, we evaluated 12,210 STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI in Massachusetts between 1/2005 and 9/2010.. Methods: We used prospectively collected data compiled, audited, and analyzed by the Massachusetts Data Analysis Center, the state mandated PCI registry.. Results: The mean age of the population was 61.9 years, with 29% women and 6.1% in cardiogenic shock. Between 2005 and 2010, median door-to-balloon time decreased from 85.0 to 67.5 minutes in patients presenting directly to PCI hospitals and from 153.5 to 113.0 minutes in patients requiring inter-hospital transfer for PCI. DTB time ≤90 minutes increased from 56.8% to 77.1% ...

The Wall Street Journal (10/3, D1, Landro) reports on a dangerous gap in emergency care, the lack of resources to transfer patients to the hospital best equipped to deal with them. Noting that [t]rauma from injuries including accidents, falls, and violence is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 44, claiming more than 140,000 lives and permanently disabling 80,000 people annually, the Journal finds that only one in four lives in an area served by a coordinated system to transfer patients to designated trauma centers from less-equipped hospitals, according to the American College of Surgeons, which sets standards for trauma care. And, only eight state trauma systems met nationally recommended preparedness levels in a study by the federal government after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The Journal adds that [w]hile some progress has been made, many states remain woefully unprepared, trauma experts say. Furthermore, although [e]fforts are under way to develop a ...

CHD death=occurrence of a fatal MI, death caused by documented cardiac arrest, death resulting from heart failure in a participant with known CHD, death from other forms of acute/chronic CHD, unwitnessed death of unknown origin, or sudden death. Acute MI=evidence of myocardial necrosis in a clinical setting consistent with myocardial ischemia. Prior MI diagnosed post-randomization (e.g.,silent MI)=the development of new pathological Q waves with/without symptoms OR imaging evidence of a region of loss of viable myocardium that is thinned and fails to contract, in the absence of a non-ischemic cause (pre-event imaging data required for verification of new abnormality), OR pathological findings of a healed/healing MI. Urgent CR for MI=ischemic discomfort at rest that prompted CR (percutaneous coronary intervention [PCI: any attempt at CR even if not successful] or coronary artery bypass graft) during the same hospitalization or resulted in hospital transfer for the purpose of CR ...
Avoid denials with these strategies Consider the following scenario: A hospital transfers a patient in semiurgent status to another hospital. The second hospital admits the patient to its observation ward. After the first two days, staff decide that the patient needs a pacemaker, so they perform surgery. The patient spends a total of four days in the second hospital. Unfortunately, the second hospital never changes the patients status to inpatient. This scenario occurs during a holiday weekend, which helps add to the confusion and inappropriate assignment.

The essential help of medical emergency teams (M.E.T.) is to decrease the frequency of sudden deaths and the pointless transport of patients in the intensive care units. Aim of present study is to record the number and the type of urgent intrahospital callings, the departments of hospital that were covered by M.E.T, the staff (medical and/or nursing) that participated in them, the medications that were used, and the number of involved individuals per incident, as well as the type of monitoring and the fluids that were used. In the particular study were recorded the urgent calls from the 07/06/2006 up to the 07/01/2007 (7 months).. Continue reading → ...

OAR 333-019-0052 (pdf) - Communication During Patient Transfer of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms - sets patient safety expectations about timely communication between health care facilities about multidrug-resistant organisms or pathogens that warrant Transmission-based Precautions. Transmission-based Precautions are disease- or syndrome-specific precautions taken in addition to Standard Precautions, based on the disease or syndrome transmission route and exposure risk (e.g., influenza requires droplet; tuberculosis requires airborne; diarrhea requires contact).. Effective January 1, 2014: When a referring health care facility transfers or discharges a patient who is infected or colonized with a multidrug-resistant organism (MDRO) or pathogen which warrants Transmission-based Precautions, it must include written notification of the infection or colonization to the receiving facility in transfer documents. The referring facility must ensure that the documentation is readily accessible to all ...

Candida albicans, a constituent of normal microbial flora of human mucosal surfaces, is a major cause of candidemia in immunocompromised individuals and hospitalized patients with other debilitating diseases. Molecular fingerprinting studies have suggested nosocomial transmission of C. albicans based on the presence of clusters or endemic genotypes in some hospitals. However, intrahospital strain transmission or a common source of infection has not been firmly established. We performed multilocus sequence typing (MLST) on 102 C. albicans bloodstream isolates (representing 92% of all culture-confirmed candidemia patients over a 31-month period at seven major hospitals) to identify patient-to-patient transmission or infection from a common source in Kuwait, a small country in the Middle East where consanguineous marriages are common. Repeat bloodstream isolates from six patients and nine surveillance cultures from other anatomic sites from six patients were also analyzed. Fifty-five isolates belonged to
Objectives: To determine the incidence and nature of adverse events and delay to patient transfer from emergency department to intensive care unit (ICU) in a metropolitan tertiary hospital.. Method: A 6-month prospective observational study in conjunction with a retrospective chart audit on all emergency department patients admitted to ICU, including those admitted via theatre or after a computed tomography scan.. Results: Equipment problems was the most common adverse event occurring in 9% of patient transfers (n = 290). Hypothermia events occurred in 7% of transfers, cardiovascular events in 6% of patient transfers, delays to transfer ,20 min occurred in 38% of the prospectively audited cases, with 14% waiting ,1 h. One patient was found to have an incorrect patient identification band during a preoperative check.. Conclusions: This study generally reported lower rates of adverse events than noted in previous studies involving critically ill transfers. The most significant finding was the ...
The study, published online ahead of print in Annals of Emergency Medicine, was led by assistant professor Jason McMullan, MD. In a multicenter, retrospective chart review, McMullan found that a majority of STEMI heart attack patients transferred by a hospital-based helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) in 2007 did not receive treatment within the time period recommended by national physician groups.. For patients with a ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a type of heart caused by a sudden, total blockage of a coronary artery, the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiologists have set a goal of 30 minutes to open the artery if a clot-busting drug is given (a treatment known as fibrinolysis) or 90 minutes if a stent is to be placed in the artery (percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI). The length of time from the patients arrival at the emergency department to treatment by PCI is commonly referred to as door to balloon time.. The goal of treating ...
Due to poor recruitment, the study was terminated after enrollment of 138 patients (32% of the projected sample size). Of these, 67 patients were randomized to thrombolytic therapy, and 71 patients were randomized to emergency transfer and primary PTCA. The median door to therapy time were 51 minutes in the thrombolytic therapy group and 155 minutes in the transfer group. Most of the delay in treatment in the transfer group was due to initiation of transfer (43 minutes) and transport time (26 minutes), while time from arrival to hospital to catheterization laboratory (11 minutes) and time from catheterization laboratory arrival to treatment (14 minutes) were short. No deaths occurred during transfer. In the transfer group, 100% of patients underwent cardiac catheterization, 89% had primary PTCA, 2 patients were treated medically and 6 patients were referred for coronary artery bypass surgery. Coronary stents were used in 34% of patients. At 30-days follow-up, there was a non-significant trend ...
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a sophisticated therapy that has been associated to reduced mortality in patients with the most severe forms of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS).1,2 It is recommended to be performed at high volume centers, in order to have the best possible results.3 With the aim of equally distributing healthcare resources, specialized ECMO-Centers should offer this therapy to patients admitted to other hospitals where ECMO cannot be done safely.. Early reports from China showed that ECMO use during the COVID-19 outbreak was anecdotal,4 nevertheless, up to now, more than 1900 COVID-19 patients have been treated with ECMO for COVID-19 around the world.5 As previously pointed out,6 ECMO is a finite resource and during the outbreak, there are limitations to providing ECMO, such as lack of material or limited staff available, which may restrict the access of patients to ECMO.. The aim of the study is to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and safety of ...

A hospital gurney is provided which allows a single attendant to conveniently and safely transfer a patient between a hospital bed, examination table, or the like and the gurney while minimizing patient discomfort. The preferred structure includes a rollable gurney frame, a laterally shiftable patient conveyor, means coupling the patient conveyor with the gurney frame for lateral outward shifting of the conveyor relative thereto, and a laterally extendable plate coupled with the gurney frame below the level of the conveyor. In use, the gurney is placed next to a hospital bed, for example, the plate is extended outwardly to rest upon the bed surface, and the conveyor is shifted laterally outwardly onto the plate for supportive engagement therewith; the belting material included as part of the patient conveyor freely moves to allow one attendant to transfer the patient between the bed and the gurney.

In this era of ubiquitous information, patient record exchange among hospitals still has technological and individual barriers including resistance to information sharing. Most research on user attitudes has been limited to one type of user or aspect. Because few analyses of attitudes toward electronic patient records (EPRs) have been conducted, understanding the attitudes among different users in multiple aspects is crucial to user acceptance. This proof-of-concept study investigated the attitudes of users toward the inter-hospital EPR exchange system implemented nationwide and focused on discrepant behavioral intentions among three user groups. The system was designed by combining a Health Level 7-based protocol, object-relational mapping, and other medical informatics techniques to ensure interoperability in realizing patient-centered practices. After implementation, three user-specific questionnaires for physicians, medical record staff, and patients were administered, with a 70 % response rate. The

Based on this information, one of the healthcare facilities with a large case number was selected for further investigation. The facility provided a line list of cases for the 2014 period, specifying if each case was an inpatient (including emergency department patients) or outpatient, and if the cases were nursing home residents. Interfacility transmission is believed to be a key contributor to the spread of multidrug-resistant organisms in healthcare facilities, and therefore investigating the source of each case may be helpful for intervention. Nursing home residents comprised 43% of the inpatient/emergency department patients, and 55% of outpatients tested, suggesting patients from nursing homes may be important to interfacility transmission ...

The present report describes the quality of care, including in hospital mortality for more than 22.000 STEMI patients admitted in 60 Belgian hospitals for the period 2008-2016. We found a strong increase in the use of primary PCI over time, particularly for patients that were admitted first in a non-PCI capable hospital, reaching a penetration rate of ,95%. The transition of thrombolysis to transfer for pPCI in the setting of a STEMI network was, however, associated with an increase of the proportion of patients with prolonged (,120 min) diagnosis-to-balloon time (from 16 to 22%), suggesting still suboptimal interhospital transfer ...

BACKGROUND. Assessments of infectious disease spread in hospitals seldom account for interfacility patient sharing. This is particularly important for pathogens with prolonged incubation periods or carrier states. METHODS. We quantified patient sharing among all 32 hospitals in Orange County (OC), California, using hospital discharge data. Same-day transfers between hospitals were considered direct transfers, and events in which patients were shared between hospitals after an intervening stay at home or elsewhere were considered indirect patient-sharing events.
INTRODUCTION: The population of patients in the USA over the age of 65 is expected to significantly increase over the next 40 years. These patients are at increased risk for hip fractures and will pose a burden to providers in the near future. In order to provide high value care, providers will need to maintain positive outcomes, mitigate complications, and reduce overall cost burdens. This study was designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of a patient transfer protocol between a large academic medical center and a single specialty orthopaedic institution ...

Each of these document categories has different scanning requirements. It is impractical to use a small office-based scanner to enter and archive thousands of historical paper charts. In this instance, I would recommend using a commercial organization that has the equipment to scan these documents quickly and efficiently, can guarantee the media that are used to store the digital files will not degrade, and can securely dispose of the paper documents after scanning, if that is desirable. While this is more costly than having a family member or student scan the documents one page at a time, the accuracy and quick turnaround are worth the effort, plus you will no longer have to pay for storage. This is an important consideration if you are closing your practice and would like to be able to transfer patients to a colleague. Receiving a digital copy of a patients record is more desirable than a thick paper chart.. For day-to-day scanning of documents, there are a number of excellent small footprint ...
Where a person has an altered conscious state (GCS , 13) and is over 65 years of age and has sustained their injury as a result of a low fall (, 1 m) then the patient should be managed in or transferred to a metropolitan neurosurgical service (MNS) or MTS. If the patient is already being assessed in an MNS, then there is no requirement to transfer to an MTS. Data from the Victorian State Trauma Registry demonstrates that outcomes for this subset are comparable when care is delivered in an MNS as when provided in an MTS5 ...
See the editorial commentary by Bisno and Baracco, on pages 995-996.). Background. In January 2008, a long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) in New Mexico reported a cluster of severe group A Streptococcus (GAS) infections.. Methods. We defined a case as illness in a patient in the LTACH from 1 October 2007 through 3 February 2008 from whom GAS was isolated from a usually sterile site or with illness consistent with GAS infection and GAS isolated from a nonsterile site. To identify carriers, we swabbed the oropharynx and skin lesions of patients and staff. We observed facility procedures to assess possible transmission routes and adherence to infection control practices. We also conducted a case-control study to identify risk factors for infection with use of asymptomatic patients who were noncarriers as control subjects.. Results. We identified 11 case patients and 11 carriers (8 patients and 3 staff). No carriers became case patients. Significant risk factors for infection in univariate ...
