Latex glove allergy among hospital employees: a study in the north-west of England. (1/618)

The frequency of use and duration of wearing latex gloves among hospital employees has increased due to concerns about AIDS and hepatitis. In many countries there is increased consciousness about latex sensitization. In the UK, the Medical Device Agency has been monitoring latex allergy for a number of years but has not found any conclusive evidence of any significant problem. We report following a detailed questionnaire study in two hospitals in the north-west of England. A total of 1,827 members of staff were questioned about latex allergy at work. One hundred and twenty-four (7%) of these hospital employees had experienced symptoms strongly suggestive of latex allergy. Of this group, 56 had a-RAST test (IgE specific to latex), which was positive in seven (12.5%). There was a history of atopy in 31%, and a family history of atopy in 17% of the individuals. As a result of the study it was found that 17% (21 of the affected individuals) had already changed their working practice by using latex-free gloves. We were able to increase awareness of latex allergy within the hospitals. Both individuals and health care organizations need to be aware of the problem and hospital organizations should encourage staff to seek guidance to address the problem and, if necessary, to take appropriate measures to improve working practices. Practical guidelines are given with regard to identifying the problem and glove use for hospital staff.  (+info)

Hospital restructuring and the changing nature of the physical therapist's role. (2/618)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study was conducted to identify role behavior changes of acute care physical therapists and changes in the organizational and professional context of hospitals following restructuring. METHODS: A Delphi technique, which involved a panel of 100 randomly selected acute care physical therapy managers, was used as the research design for this study. Responses from rounds 1 and 2 were synthesized and organized into exhaustive and mutually exclusive categories for round 3. Data obtained from round 3 were used to develop a comprehensive perspective on the changes that have occurred. RESULTS: Changed role behaviors in patient care and professional interaction, including increased emphasis on evaluation, planning, teaching, supervising, and collaboration, appeared to be extensions of unchanged role behaviors. Reported changes in the structural and professional context of physical therapy services included using critical pathways to guide care, providing services system-wide, and using educational activities and meetings to maintain a sense of community. The importance of professionalism to physical therapists' work was identified and related to specific role behavior changes. CONCLUSION AND DISCUSSION: The changing role of physical therapists in acute care hospitals includes an increased emphasis on higher-level skills in patient care and professional interaction and the continuing importance of professionalism.  (+info)

Radiation dose to patients and personnel during intraoperative digital subtraction angiography. (3/618)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The use of intraoperative angiography to assess the results of neurovascular surgery is increasing. The purpose of this study was to measure the radiation dose to patients and personnel during intraoperative angiography and to determine the effect of experience. METHODS: Fifty consecutive intraoperative angiographic studies were performed during aneurysmal clipping or arteriovenous malformation resection from June 1993 to December 1993 and another 50 from December 1994 to June 1995. Data collected prospectively included fluoroscopy time, digital angiography time, number of views, and amount of time the radiologist spent in the room. Student's t-test was used to assess statistical significance. Effective doses were calculated from radiation exposure measurements using adult thoracic and head phantoms. RESULTS: The overall median examination required 5.2 minutes of fluoroscopy, 55 minutes of operating room use, 40 seconds of digital angiographic series time, and four views and runs. The mean room time and the number of views and runs increased in the second group of patients. A trend toward reduced fluoroscopy time was noted. Calculated effective doses for median values were as follows: patient, 76.7 millirems (mrems); radiologist, 0.028 mrems; radiology technologist, 0.044 mrems; and anesthesiologist, 0.016 mrems. CONCLUSION: Intraoperative angiography is performed with a reasonable radiation dose to the patient and personnel. The number of angiographic views and the radiologist's time in the room increase with experience.  (+info)

Safe working practices and HIV infection: knowledge, attitudes, perception of risk, and policy in hospital. (4/618)

OBJECTIVES--To assess the knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of risk of occupational HIV transmission in hospital in relation to existing guidelines. DESIGN--Cross sectional anonymous questionnaire survey of all occupational groups. SETTING--One large inner city teaching hospital. SUBJECTS--All 1530 staff working in the hospital in October 1991 and 22 managers. MAIN MEASURES--Knowledge of safe working practices and hospital guidelines; attitudes towards patients with AIDS; perception of risk of occupational transmission of HIV; availability of guidelines. RESULTS--The response rate in the questionnaire survey was 63% (958/1530). Although staff across all occupational groups knew of the potential risk of infection from needlestick injury (98%, 904/922), significantly more non-clinical staff (ambulance, catering, and domestic staff) than clinical staff (doctors, nurses, and paramedics) thought HIV could be transmitted by giving blood (38%, 153/404 v 12%, 40/346; chi 2 = 66.1 p < 0.001); one in ten clinical staff believed this. Except for midwives, half of staff in most occupational groups and 19% (17/91) of doctors and 22% (28/125) of nurses thought gloves should be worn in all contacts with people with AIDS. Most staff (62%, 593/958), including 38% (36/94) of doctors and 52% (67/128) of nurses thought patients should be routinely tested on admission, 17% of doctors and 19% of nurses thought they should be isolated in hospital. One in three staff perceived themselves at risk of HIV. Midwives, nurses, and theatre technicians were most aware of guidelines for safe working compared with only half of doctors, ambulance, and paramedical staff and no incinerator staff. CONCLUSIONS--Policy guidelines for safe working practices for patients with HIV infection and AIDS need to be disseminated across all occupational groups to reduce negative staff attitudes, improve knowledge of occupational transmission, establish an appropriate perception of risk, and create a supportive and caring hospital environment for people with HIV. IMPLICATIONS--Managers need to disseminate policy guidelines and information to all staff on an ongoing basis.  (+info)

An approach to an index of hospital performance. (5/618)

Two indexes are described, based on measures of administrative effectiveness and patient care effectiveness. The measures used were selected and ranked by a Delphi panel from a list of 30 measures drawn from the literature. Weights were assigned by the panel to 19 selected measures. The resulting indexes did well in a test on data collected from 32 Texas hospitals.  (+info)

Feasibility of routine testing for hepatitis B surface antigen in hospital employees and restriction of carriers. (6/618)

In 1972-73, 48 hospital staff members were tested selectively for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg); 4 (8.3%) were found to be HBsAg-positive. In 1974-75, 1415 staff members were tested routinely before employment and at periodic health examination; 25 (1.8%) were found to be HBsAg-positive. Of the HBsAg-positive staff members 55.2% were Asians, this proportion being significantly (P less than 0.05) greater than that of any other ethnic group, and 31.0% were southern Europeans. Nurses and laboratory technologists were the largest professional groups among the HBsAg-positive staff, each accounting for 20.7%. Our results indicate that it is impractical to carry out routine testing of hospital staff for HBsAg. Selective testing and restriction from work in their units is proposed for staff of the renal and peritoneal dialysis units, the emergency department and the intravenous team and dietary staff who handle food directly.  (+info)

Maintaining continuity of clinical operations while implementing large-scale filmless operations. (7/618)

Texas Children's Hospital is a pediatric tertiary care facility in the Texas Medical Center with a large-scale, Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)-compliant picture archival and communications system (PACS) installation. As our PACS has grown from an ultrasound niche PACS into a full-scale, multimodality operation, assuring continuity of clinical operations has become the number one task of the PACS staff. As new equipment is acquired and incorporated into the PACS, workflow processes, responsibilities, and job descriptions must be revised to accommodate filmless operations. Round-the-clock clinical operations must be supported with round-the-clock service, including three shifts, weekends, and holidays. To avoid unnecessary interruptions in clinical service, this requirement includes properly trained operators and users, as well as service personnel. Redundancy is a cornerstone in assuring continuity of clinical operations. This includes all PACS components such as acquisition, network interfaces, gateways, archive, and display. Where redundancy is not feasible, spare parts must be readily available. The need for redundancy also includes trained personnel. Procedures for contingency operations in the event of equipment failures must be devised, documented, and rehearsed. Contingency operations might be required in the event of scheduled as well as unscheduled service events, power outages, network outages, or interruption of the radiology information system (RIS) interface. Methods must be developed and implemented for reporting and documenting problems. We have a Trouble Call service that records a voice message and automatically pages the PACS Console Operator on duty. We also have developed a Maintenance Module on our RIS system where service calls are recorded by technologists and service actions are recorded and monitored by PACS support personnel. In a filmless environment, responsibility for the delivery of images to the radiologist and referring physician must be accepted by each imaging supervisor. Thus, each supervisor must initiate processes to verify correct patient and examination identification and the correct count and routing of images with each examination.  (+info)

To evaluate whether occupational stress factors (high demands, low control, low social support, strain, and iso-strain) are associated with skin disorders in hospital workers and whether psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression, act as potential mechanisms through which occupational stress factors are associated with skin disorders. 1,744 hospital workers were invited to answer a questionnaire concerning the occurrence of skin disorders and psychosocial factors at work. The abbreviated Italian version of the Demand/Control model (Karasek) was used to assess perceived work strain, while the Goldberg scales were used to assess anxiety and depression. Analyses were adjusted for age, gender, occupation, latex glove use and history of atopy. Of the participants, 25% reported hand dermatitis in the previous 12 months and 35% had been affected by skin disorders in other parts of the body. High job demands (OR = 1.09 CI95% 1.05-1.14), low social support (OR = 0.90, CI95% 0.87-0.93), high strain
A study released on Friday showed that cell phones belonging to hospital workers are covered in bacteria including the superbug, MRSA, the AFP reported. Experts fear it could become a serious source of hospital-acquired infections.. After testing the phones and hands of 200 doctors and nurses working in hospital operating rooms and intensive care units, researchers from the Ondokuz Mayis University in Turkey found that some 95 percent of cell phones were contaminated with at least one type of bacteria.. The report, published in BioMed Centrals Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials, showed that many of the hospital workers had a strong potential to cause illness ranging from minor skin irritations to deadly disease due to cross-contamination.. Researchers, led by Fatma Ulger, found that almost 35 percent of workers carried two types of bacteria, and more than 11 percent carried three or more different species of bugs.. The study noted that only a small sample (10 percent) of staff ...

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 14, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- In some reassuring news on the coronavirus front, a new study finds that pregnant women with COVID-19 rarely infect their newborn.. That finding suggests that it may not be necessary to separate infected mothers from their infants and that moms can continue to breastfeed, the researchers added. Our findings should reassure expectant mothers with COVID-19 that basic infection-control measures during and after childbirth, such as wearing a mask and engaging in breast and hand hygiene when holding or breastfeeding a baby, protected newborns from infection in this series, said researcher Dr. Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman.

She was then transferred by medical helicopter to Tufts Medical Center, where she died the following Tuesday.. Medical Examiners have conducted an autopsy on Wallaces but have not yet ruled on the cause of her death.. ...
Patients are customers and their expectations are to be treated as such, especially when their health is on the line. They expect certain standards to be met, but are hospital personnel aware of those standards and expectations? Politeness and a smile can go a long way in regards to patient satisfaction, but so does a little customer service and patient relations training.

These studies have provided insight into the evolution of the current testing process for pre-employment urine drug screening of health care workers, at least in the United States. However, the topics of drug abuse by health care workers and patient safety are international issues. There is a conspicuous lack of published results of employee drug testing from hospitals outside the USA. The published experience, attitudes, and testing policies and strategies in other health care systems would be a welcome addition to the literature.. The logical next question is: what has over a decade of pre-employment urine testing achieved? In order to answer this question, we need a better understanding of what the goals of drug screening really are. Explicit policies are the foundations of any testing programme, and must include clear, written statements of goals, measurable objectives, and delineation of operating procedures.47 However, an analysis of the substance abuse policies at 30 teaching institutions ...

Only 4.1% of hospital personnel had either a weak or no response, whereas 2.3% had a transient response. These results are in agreement with previous studies (2, 3). Indeed, the Immunization Practices Advisory Committee, Centers for Disease Control, suggests that it is not necessary to test for immunity after immunization except for dialysis patients who have a high vaccine failure rate (4).

Theyve taken their home technology from toy making to protecting lives.. A BKW fifth-grade student and his family have teamed up to help local hospital workers during the COVID-19 pandemic by using their 3-D printers to create face shields.. Joaquin and his dad, Mark, connected with a group at the University of Albany after learning about a request for those with 3-D printers to produce the shields for use as personal protective equipment at Albany Medical Center. The father-son team downloaded a National Institute of Health(NIH)-certified design for the shields from the internet and went to work beginning this past Friday.. Since then, their four 3-D printers have been humming away in their dining room and beyond, producing 40 face shields each day that are then picked up by UAlbany volunteer drivers for delivery to the medical center. The university is mailing printing supplies to the family so they can continue creating the shields.. I couldnt help stop [the virus] in any medical way, but ...
Hospital workers underestimate their exposure to potentially dangerous chemicals, according to a study published online in Occupational & Environmental Medicine .
A total of 960 questionnaires were completed (Germany n = 200; Italy n = 261; Spain n = 267; UK n = 232) by nurses (60%), physicians (29%) and pharmacists or purchasing personnel (11%). Estimated prevalence of AFI ranged from 9 to 37% of patients on the day of the survey. The majority of respondents reported a moderately low awareness of the clinical challenges associated with AFI and its prioritisation in their units. Patients with AFI commonly had compromised skin integrity (perineal dermatitis, moisture lesions or sacral pressure ulcers). Reducing the risk of cross-infection and protecting skin integrity were rated as the most important clinical challenges. Forty-nine per cent responded that they had no hospital protocol or guideline for the management of AFI. There was generally low awareness of nursing time spent managing AFI episodes by some hospital personnel, but 60% of respondents estimated that 10 to 20 minutes are required for managing an AFI episode, requiring two or three healthcare ...
The surgery, conducted by Dr. Sandra Starnes and Dr. Syed Ahmad, went swimmingly, and while recovery is a bit slow, there was not as much pain as I had expected, and I was out of the hospital and back at home within 10 days, Zipfel says, adding that he had the surgery in September 2014 and is still on the road to full recovery. I had an excellent experience with my team of the physicians at UC. The doctors were frank and upfront about my treatment, and they say I am the textbook example of how an operation of this type should go. From top to bottom-from the nurses aides, the chemo and radiation technicians, the nurses and other hospital personnel , to my skilled oncologist, radiologist, and surgeons-my treatment has all been positive ...

Being old school, I dont like to see people wearing scrubs outside of the hospital. But there is no evidence that bacteria on scrubs spread disease, and a large number of ancillary hospital personnel wear scrubs.. Every few months when things are slow, someone publishes an article about the imaginary dangers associated with doctors wearing scrubs in public. A recent version is from The Atlantic. An associate editor saw some people in scrubs having lunch in a restaurant and was, of course, horrified. She questioned the magazines medical editor, Dr. James Hamblin, whose response was remarkably reasoned (until the end).. He pointed out that it might not have been doctors because everyone, including secretaries (and even custodial people in my hospital), now wears scrubs to work. Dr. Hamblin rightly added that there is a lot of debate about the issue. He speculated that some guys wear scrubs in public as a signal to women that they are doctors.. But at the end of the piece, he said it was OK if ...

Our report [2] provides another important lesson. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was first considered at autopsy, when the skin lesion was examined histologically. Had the autopsy not been requested by the attending physician and agreed to by the family, the subsequent contact investigation would not have been initiated, and the infected hospital personnel would not have been provided with prophylaxis in a timely fashion. That two nurses who did not receive prophylaxis developed clinical tuberculosis suggests that additional cases might have occurred, with the potential for further secondary spread ...

A wireless local area network (WLAN) system comprises multiple access points that are distributed throughout a medical facility to provide wireless access to a hardwired network. The access points implement multiple WLAN protocols, including a realtime protocol for realtime patient monitoring (telemetry) and a standard WLAN protocol (such as IEEE 802.11 within an ISM band) for providing general-purpose wireless access. Some or all of the access points preferably implement both WLAN protocols such that the different WLANs and wireless device types share network access resources. Some or all of the access points may also include RF location-tracking modules which may be used to track locations of patients, hospital personnel, capital equipment, and/or disposable medical supplies. Also disclosed are an antenna design which may be used with the access points to improve reception (particularly for patient monitoring), and a TDMA timeslot rotation method for avoiding lockstep interference between access

Landsteiner subsequently discovered three of the four genetically determined blood groups or types, O, A and B. A couple of years later, Alfred von Decastello and Adriano Sturli, Landsteiners colleagues in Vienna, identified a fourth blood group, AB. While about 30 blood types have been discovered, the original four essentially cover everyone.. In 1910, at the Heidelberg Institute for Experimental Cancer Research in Germany, Ludwig Hirszfeld and Emil von Dungern demonstrated that blood type is an inherited trait.. In the speech he made when he accepted the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his work, Landsteiner described the mystery blood presented, and how he and his fellow researchers unraveled its secrets.. In 1922, Landsteiner moved to the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research in New York, where he discovered an extremely powerful blood antigen he called the Rh factor.. Today, hospital personnel make sure they know a mothers blood type in case she needs a transfusion. She will also be tested ...

In a letter to Rep. Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, who serves as chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, the American Hospital Association (AHA) listed numerous areas in which lawmakers could take action to ease legislative and regulatory burdens on hospitals and health systems.. The AHA wrote that the regulatory burden faced by hospitals is substantial and unsustainable, and, as one example, cited that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released 49 rules pertaining to hospitals and health systems, comprising almost 24,00 page of text.. Hospitals recently have been granted some important regulatory relief, such as the implementation of a 12-month moratorium on the outdated long-term care hospital 25 percent Rule, as well as a 90-day reporting period and flexibility in the use of technology for the meaningful use program for fiscal year 2018.

She underwent POEM under general anaesthesia. We used a high definition endoscope (Olympus GIF H180) and transparent cap (Olympus MH 588). An incision was made in the mucosa 15cms above the GE junction using a hybrid knife ( electrogenerator, Erbe Vio 300D; Erbe Elektromedizin, Germany) . This mucosal incision was made after submucosal instillation of saline along the right anterolateral esophageal wall. The endoscope was then inserted into the submucosa at the site of incision and a submucosal tunnel was created from the incision till 1 cm beyond GE Junction. Spray coagulation mode was used to dissect the submucosa. Continuous infiltration of a solution made of 100ml saline mixed with indigocarmine and 1 ml adrenaline was done to separate the mucosa and to detect any small mucosal tear. A coagulating forceps (FD-410LR Coagrasper; Olympus) was used for hemostasis as needed. The time required for creating the tunnel was 53 mins. The GE junction was identified by palisade vascular pattern and ...

This pilot trial demonstrated the feasibility of conducting a foot-massage intervention for staff working in LTC facilities. In terms of recruitment, although the facility was considered to be of an average size (105 beds), and the recruitment focused only on day shift staff, an adequate number of staff were willing to be involved and, thus, our estimation of the number we could recruit from one facility was accurate. Recruitment was hampered only by the trial being undertaken in the pre-holiday period when there was a large number of staff on leave. Challenges to the research design included the environmental limitations, and this demonstrates the importance of undertaking a relaxation intervention in a room where participants felt comfortable. Outcome measures were not problematic for participants to complete, however, the project manager had to remind participants to complete and return to the locked box..
