A multiple case study of implementation in 10 local Project ASSIST coalitions in North Carolina. (1/756)

Community health promotion relies heavily on coalitions to address a multitude of public health issues. In spite of their widespread use, there have been very few studies of coalitions at various stages of coalition development. The purpose of this study was to identify factors that facilitated or impeded coalition effectiveness in the implementation stage of coalition development. The research design was a multiple case study with cross-case comparisons. Each of the 10 local North Carolina Project ASSIST coalitions constituted a case. Data collection included: semi-structured interviews, observation, document review, and surveys of members and staff. Some of the major factors that facilitated implementation included: the ability of the coalition to provide its own vision, staff with the skills and time to work with the coalition, frequent and productive communication, cohesion or a sense of belonging on the coalition, and complexity of the coalition structure during the intervention phase. Barriers to effective implementation included: staff turnover and staff lacking community organization skills, dependence on the state-level staff during the planning phase and lack of member input into the action plan. Conflict contributed to staff turnover, reluctance to conduct certain activities and difficulty in recruiting members, all of which had implications for implementation.  (+info)

Public hospital resource allocations in El Salvador: accounting for the case mix of patients. (2/756)

National hospitals in developing countries command a disproportionate share of medical care budgets, justified on the grounds that they have a more difficult patient case mix and higher occupancy rates than decentralized district hospitals or clinics. This paper empirically tests the hypothesis by developing direct measures of the severity of patient illness, hospital case-mix and a resource intensity index for each of El Salvador's public hospitals. Based on an analysis of inpatient care staffing requirements, national hospitals are found to receive funding far in excess of what case-mix and case-load considerations would warrant. The findings suggest that significant system-wide efficiency gains can be realized by allocating hospital budgets on the bases of performance-related criteria which incorporate the case-mix approach developed here.  (+info)

Analysis of the rationale for, and consequences of, nonprofit and for-profit ownership conversions. (3/756)

OBJECTIVES: To examine percursors to private hospitals conversion, both from nonprofit status to for-profit status and from for-profit to nonprofit status, as well as the effect of hospital conversions on hospital profitability, efficiency, staffing, and the probability of closure. DATA SOURCES: The Health Care Financing Administration's Medicare Cost Reports and the American Hospital Association's Annual Survey of Hospitals. STUDY DESIGN: Bivariate and multivariate analyses comparing conversion hospitals to nonconversion hospitals over time were conducted. DATA EXTRACTION METHODS: The study sample consisted of all private acute care hospital conversions that occurred from 1989 through 1992. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Hospitals that converted had significantly lower profit margins prior to converting than did nonconversion hospitals. This was particularly true for nonprofit to for-profit conversions. After converting, both nonprofit and for-profit hospitals significantly improved their profitability. Nonprofit to for-profit hospital conversions were associated with a decrease in the ratio of staff to patients. No association was found between for-profit to nonprofit conversion and staff-to-patient ratios. The difference seems partially attributed to the fact that nonprofit hospitals that converted had higher staff ratios than the industry average. For-profit to nonprofit hospital conversions were associated with an increase in the ratio of registered nurses to patients and administrators to patients, despite the fact that nonprofit and for-profit hospitals did not differ in these ratios. CONCLUSIONS: The improvement in financial performance following hospital conversions may be a benefit to the community that policymakers want to consider when regulating hospital conversions.  (+info)

UK neonatal intensive care services in 1996. On behalf of the UK Neonatal Staffing Study Collaborative Group. (5/756)

A census of activity and staff levels in 1996 was conducted in UK neonatal units and achieved a 100% response from 246 units. Among the 186 neonatal intensive care units, the median (interquartile range) number of total cots was 18(14-22); level 1 intensive care cots 4(2-6); total admissions 318(262-405); very low birthweight admissions 40(28-68); and the number ventilated or given CPAP by endotracheal tube 52(32-83). Forty six (25%) intensive care units lacked the recommended minimum of one consultant with prime responsibility for neonatal medicine. As a conservative estimate 79% of intensive care units had a lower nursing provision than that recommended in previously published guidelines. There was substantial variation in activity and staffing levels among units.  (+info)

Clinical services assessment and reengineering: lessons learned. (7/756)

Healthcare enterprises often "acquire and install" picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) without examining many of the care delivery processes and information flows that will be affected. Many times these unexamined factors can delay or be the cause of failure of the PACS project. This article presents issues that were worked through as part of a PACS clinical services assessment and reengineering analysis for several US military medical treatment facilities.  (+info)

Radiologist-patient interactions: implications for picture archiving and communications systems and teleradiology. (8/756)

We analyzed radiologist-patient interactions and found that radiologic examinations can be classified into three categories: those involving direct interaction of the radiologist with each patient, those involving interaction of the radiologist with some of the patients, and those that do not involve interaction between the radiologist and the patient. We then analyzed the staff assignments of a large academic radiology practice and a moderate-sized radiology department. Both departments include a full range of inpatient and outpatient procedures. We concluded that about 50% of the radiologists in these practices could interpret examinations at a location independent of the site where the examination was performed. This type of analysis can be helpful in planning for the reengineering of radiology processes following implementation of picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) and teleradiology.  (+info)

Because there are significant policy implications associated with compressed workweeks in law enforcement, there is a great need for an examination of both current national practices with regard to CWWs [compressed workweeks] in law enforcement, as well as the impact of such schedules on performance and safety, health, quality of life, sleep, fatigue, and extra-duty employment (i.e., overtime and off-duty work). In this report, we aim to address this gap by providing both the results of the first comprehensive, randomized experiment of the effects of shift length in policing, as well as descriptive data on current shift practices and trends (Executive Summary p. 2). Findings reveal that there are no significant differences between 8-, 10-, and 12-hour shifts in regards to work performance, health, or family-work conflict. Those working 10-shifts did comment that they got more sleep and felt they had a better quality of work life than with an 8-hour shift. Those working 12-hours reported more ...
The ACGME announced this week that more time is needed before making any decision on modifying resident duty hour caps.

Characteristics of shiftwork schedules have implications for off-shift well-being. We examined the extent to which several shift characteristics (e.g., shift length, working sundays) are associated with three aspects of off-shift well-being: work-to-family conflict, physical well-being, and mental well-being. We also investigated whether these relationships differed in four nations. The Survey of
In a context in Europe in which hospital nurse staffing is a frequent target for budget reductions, and policy makers are suggesting the introduction of lower skilled and less educated nurse substitutes like nursing associates, our results suggest caution is warranted. We find a nursing skill mix in hospitals with a higher proportion of professional nurses is associated with significantly lower mortality, higher patient ratings of their care and fewer adverse care outcomes. Specifically, each 10% increase in the proportion of nursing personnel who are professional nurses is associated with an 11% decrease in the odds of patient deaths after general surgery. Or from the perspective of reducing skill mix, which is more in vogue among policy makers, each 10% reduction in the proportion of professional nurses is associated with a 12% increase in the odds of patient deaths. We note that the proportion of professional nurses can be altered by either reducing the number of professional nurses or ...

Rama Rota has been drinking a lot and for some time plus acting like he does not feel very good and not eating as well as he should.

Objectives The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the direction of shift rotation was related to the need for recovery, fatigue, sleep quality, work-family conflict, and leisure time among three-shift workers.. Methods Data of 95 workers in forward-rotating three-shift work and 681 workers in backward-rotating three-shift work, with 32 months of follow-up, in the Maastricht cohort study (N=12 095) were used. Both cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were carried out.. Results A backward rotation schedule was prospectively related to an increased need for recovery [relative risk (RR) 2.88, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.06-7.81] and poor general health (RR 3.21, 95% CI 1.32-7.83), as compared with a forward rotation schedule. Adjustment for demographic and health variables and the characteristics of the work environment did not alter these relations considerably. Furthermore, a forward rotation schedule was prospectively related to less work-family conflict and better ...
Residents satisfaction with the quality of their resident education and their overall well-being was measured by the ABS survey they took in January 2015. Among the 4,330 residents responding to the survey, those in the flexible duty hour group (2,220 respondents) were not more likely to report dissatisfaction with their educational program quality compared with the Standard Policy group (2,110) according to survey results. They also did not report significantly greater dissatisfaction with their overall well-being. Importantly, residents in Flexible Policy programs were no more likely than the Standard Policy group to report perceiving a negative effect of fatigue on personal or patient safety.. The Flexible Policy program residents were more likely than the Standard Policy group to report improved experiences on several measures, including continuity of patient care, acquiring of operative skills, and professionalism, Dr. Bilimoria reported.. Importantly, residents in the flexible duty hour ...
Downloadable! Working time arrangements are key elements of working conditions and determine the possibilities for employees to balance work with their other life spheres. Therefore, this paper examines the level of working time satisfaction of employees and identifies the factors that may facilitate or impede satisfaction with working time using crosssectional data from the German BIBB/BAuA-Employment Survey. The analytical basis is a generalized ordered logistic regression model. The main results indicate that individual time-sovereignty is positively linked with a high level of working time satisfaction. Worker-friendly working time arrangements, which lead to less stress, insecurity and mental pressure, increase satisfaction levels, whereas atypical working time arrangements, such as unpaid overtime and working shifts, weekends and under high intensity, reduce satisfaction levels.

There is a new study out call Resident Duty Hours: Enhancing Sleep, Supervision, and Safety, the most comprehensive study of resident work hours conducted to date. According to this recent Institute of Medicine study there are many abuses of scheduling of the more than 100,000 resident physicians in teaching hospitals across the country. Often in the U.S.A. these interns and residents are routinely scheduled to work shifts of 24-30 consecutive hours, with little or no sleep. They work in operating rooms and ERs on the wards and in clinics. According to the study, the residents/interns when they are done their 12 hour or longer shifts, they potentially face back to back on-call shifts that can be 30 hours long. This brutal schedule leaves them sleep deprived and deeply fatigued interns and residents make mistakes thus impacting quality of medical care and safety. The rising level of medical errors in the USA is a testament to this real problem of quality of patient care and safety. Marathon ...
Under the supervision of the Consult Attending, the fellow will develop and refine their clinical evaluation skills of patients with rheumatic diseases, including appropriate differential diagnosis, diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and the need for continued hospitalization. Their exposure on the inpatient service will hone their understanding of indications and contraindications, techniques and possible complications of arthrocentesis and interpretation of results. Fellows will acquire skills in performing synovial fluid crystal analysis by polarized light microscopy as well as other non-invasive and invasive procedures. Consult consists of formal rounding 3 times a week (Mon., Wed., and Friday). Rounds on Tuesday and Thursday are dependent based off of the attending preference and the patient needs. The On-call schedule is generally divided on a weekly basis between the four fellows. Call hours are adjusted accordingly to comply with ACGME Duty Hour requirements. Fellows cover Monday through ...

Background: The release of the Institute of Medicine report on resident work hours and patient safety highlighted the risks to patient and resident safety of extended duty on-call shifts.. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility and effectiveness of mandatory naps during extended duty overnight shifts for residents.. Methods: For each site (PVAMC and HUP), every other month residents will be randomized to either work the standard schedule (which involves interns being on duty for 30 continuous hours) vs. the mandatory nap schedule, which involves interns signing out their beepers for 5 hours in the middle of the night to covering night floats and for 3 hours in Year 2. The primary outcome will be the amount slept as measured by actigraphs, with secondary outcomes of cognitive alertness measured by 3-minute psychomotor vigilance testing (PVT), Stanford sleepiness Scale, and other measures of resident and patient well-being.. Status: Recruitment complete, analyses phase ...

John Sutherlands description of the Modern Language Association of America (LRB, 16 December 1993) contains more misleading statements and outright errors than one would expect of someone who has taught at universities in both the United States and the United Kingdom. He treats the MLAs size as remarkable and somehow in itself a problem. He fails to consider the difference between the number of university teachers in the United States and the number in the United Kingdom. Statistics compiled by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development suggest that there are 11 full-time equivalent students in the United States for every full-time equivalent student in the United Kingdom. Assuming a similar student-faculty ratio in both countries, one would expect the United States to have 11 times as many faculty members at the university level as the United Kingdom has. Consequently, one might expect professional meetings in the United States to attract considerably larger numbers of ...
Saint Marys College of California may allow staff employees to work remotely if their job duties and work performance are determined to be eligible for remote work. Eligibility will be decided on a case-by-case basis by Saint Marys College of California based on whether providing such services to the College remotely are beneficial to the College. Staff employees also may be required to work remotely when possible during circumstances where the government orders or recommends such work (e.g., periods of public emergencies, whether health or life safety).. This policy provides general information regarding remote work/telecommuting. Staff employees who are approved to work remotely should consult their individual agreement for specific details of their remote work/telecommuting arrangement, such as expected work hours, equipment provided, and other important information such as location of work. A staff employee interested in working outside the state of California must receive prior approval ...

BACKGROUND: Nurse-to-patient ratios in the intensive care unit are associated with postoperative mortality, morbidity, and costs after some high-risk surgery. OBJECTIVE: To determine if having 1 nurse caring for 1 or 2 patients (more nurses) versus 1 nurse caring for 3 or more patients (fewer nurses) in the intensive care unit at night is associated with differences in clinical and economic outcomes after hepatectomy. METHODS: Statewide observational cohort study of 569 adults who had hepatic resection, 1994 to 1998. Hospital discharge data were linked to a prospective survey of organizational characteristics in the intensive care unit. Multivariate analysis was used to determine the association of nighttime nurse-to-patient ratios with in-hospital mortality, length of stay, hospital costs, and specific postoperative complications. RESULTS: A total of 240 patients at 25 hospitals had fewer nurses; 316 patients in 8 hospitals had more nurses. No significant association between nighttime ...

Differences in labor cost growth signal changes to an economys international competitiveness as well as its workers comparative standard of living, yet there is a scarcity of adequate models that project labor costs across countries. Using data from The Conference Board International Labor Comparisons program, we compare the US projections to other advanced economies in Europe and Asia/Pacific. In this paper we use a panel data set of 19 countries to forecast: labor cost growth, growth in wages and salaries (
The response of the BMA junior doctor leadership to these principles was negative. Redefining normal hours to include periods currently reimbursed as overtime would reduce income, although the 11% increase in basic pay would probably offset this for many. The end to banding was seen as a licence for NHS Trusts to exploit junior doctors and make them work more, not less, hours. Abolition of the salary increment was seen as an insult added to the injury of less overtime payment. Limiting hours of work further could lead to a further erosion of overtime pay, whilst shift length and other rules about breaks and rest periods are already in the existing contract or the European Working Time Directive.. Hunt threatened to impose a new contract based on these principles, in August 2016, unless negotiations re-started. This made the junior doctor precariat take to the streets, threaten migration and predict an exodus into better-paid jobs outside the NHS. Five thousand junior doctors, medical ...

Ive been in surgical resident education for over 15 years now, both as a PD and Chairman. You are 100% spot on with your comments about residents not being able to perform open surgery anymore. Unfortunately, I believe that is a sign of the times, both because of the rise of laparoscopy (which for the most part is a good thing), and because of the work hours restrictions we now have to abide by (which for the most part is a bad thing). I am most worried about the MIS fellow who cant do MIS surgery, and that leads me to ask if a Fundamentals of Open Surgery course (FOS, for those readers paying close attention) would be any better at solving the problem. I think we need to either relax the work hours restrictions, or make the 5 year residencies 6 years long. ...

One of my favorite dialysis patients who spoke with a soft little southern accent, said to me one day….why I would never take those genetic drugs, they are not the same as the invented ones. I just smiled and explained that generics would not be given if they were not going to work the same as the brand name, if that were the case we could insist on name brands. She missed my correction of the pronunciation, and was overhead telling her daughter what I had said about the genetic drugs only being used if they would do that same thing in her body.

Care of the transplant patient post-operatively requires a multidisciplinary approach. The goal of the intensivist is to create an ideal environment for the allograft to recover from its ischaemic insult and return to normal function. An understanding of the recipients pretransplant physiology is essential, as the pathological states associated with organ failure may persist for weeks to months after transplant. In particular, cardiac and renal disease may impact care in the immediate post-transplant period. An understanding of immune suppressive strategies will enable the intensivist to mitigate nephrotoxic side effects of these medications and anticipate specific vulnerabilities to infection. Attention to all the details of good critical care will give the allograft and the recipient the best chance for long-term survival. The intensivist must be able anticipate problems related to surgery and early signs of allograft recovery and dysfunction. Common post-operative complications are described in this

To some degree or another, many of these same factors continue to influence the U.S. health care delivery system today. Geolot (2000) predicts that in 2010 the projected full-time equivalent supply of registered nurses will no longer exceed requirements for full-time equivalent registered nurses. This is the predicted intersection to a shortage. The years following 2010 show a dramatic widening between the supply of registered nurses in relation to the requirements for registered nurses. Some states are already reporting difficulty in hiring experienced and specialty nurses and recruiting time is beginning to lengthen. This is in spite of an increase in the overall supply of registered nurses. According to the 1996 National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (Moses, 1997), the total number of employed registered nurses increased at an average annual rate of 3.4 percent between 1992 and 1996 with 82.7 percent of the registered nurse population employed in nursing. During this same time frame, the ...

The health effects of shift work have been well studied. New research suggests that the ability to handle night shift work may be genetic.
A float is a box that is shifted to the left or right on the current line. The most interesting characteristic of a float (or floated or floating box) is that content may flow along its side (or be prohibited from doing so by the clear property). Content flows down the right side of a left-floated box and down the left side of a right-floated box. The following is an introduction to float positioning and content flow; the exact rules governing float behavior are given in the description of the float property. A floated box is shifted to the left or right until its outer edge touches the containing block edge or the outer edge of another float. If there is a line box, the outer top of the floated box is aligned with the top of the current line box. If there is not enough horizontal room for the float, it is shifted downward until either it fits or there are no more floats present. Since a float is not in the flow, non-positioned block boxes created before and after the float box flow ...

Problems arise with excessive overtime hours that result in negative effects. Overtime may help an employer who doesnt have to hire additional workers, but it is possible the excessive hours cause more problems than they are worth. Sometimes the employees themselves dont realize the harm too much overtime can cause.
Critical illness does not keep to regular, daytime business hours; we must provide high-quality care and support for intensive care unit (ICU) patients 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Whether this mandates the presence of similar numbers and types of personnel throughout all hours of the day, however, has been the subject of much debate and substantial research. In this article, we review the available literature on the consequences of having three groups of care providers at a patients bedside overnight: physicians, visitors, and nurses ...

People working night shifts can work in peace as a new study conducted in Sweden does not show any link between night shifts and increase risk of cancer.
Results: During follow-up (mean = 9.1 years), 3,191 incident cases were diagnosed. We observed little to no increase in risk associated with work schedule characteristics (ever working rotating shifts: HR = 1.04, 95% CI, 0.91-1.20; ever working rotating night shifts: HR = 1.08, 95% CI, 0.92-1.27; ever working at night: HR = 1.01, 95% CI, 0.94-1.10; and ever working irregular hours: HR = 0.98, 95% CI, 0.91-1.06). Although short-term night work (,0 to 5 years vs. never: HR = 1.12; 95% CI, 1.00-1.26) and rotating shift work at night (,0 to 5 years vs. never: HR = 1.30; 95% CI, 1.05-1.61) were associated with increased breast cancer risk, working nights for more than 5 years was not associated with risk. ...
An electronic manufacturer working in a three-shift production operation with both machine types examined and documented the dross appearance over one year. Calculations consider the price for solder alloy as well as refund of costs for dross. While approximately 30 kg of dross had to be removed per week for the system with partial inert atmosphere, the tunnel system yielded only 5 kg oxide dross over the same period. Weekly costs for solder consumption for the system with partial inert atmosphere were computed to be almost six times as much, or 275 Euros compared to only 48 Euros for the tunnel system. The reduction in drossing also implies a reduction in maintenance requirements and an increase in system availability for production. For this example, weekly maintenance time for the system with partial inert atmosphere was about 7.5 h, compared to only 1.1 h for the tunnel system ...

I enjoy nursing, but there are many aspects to a nursing job that make the job very stressful. For example I worked the 7PM-7AM shift. Now if you think that the patients are asleep during this time think again. It is busy. In a 12 hour shift I would be on my feet nonstop. I was supposed to have a lunch break and more often than not I had no time for a lunch break. It was nonstop activity. To this day I miss the patients and patient care. I miss adult conversations and the feeling of accomplishment and feeling like I am contributing to our family monetarily, but I do not miss the feeling of being so hectic and on the go. Another aspect is the fact that the hospitals are so understaffed with nurses. I had at least 6 patients in my 12 hour shift. I felt like all 5-6 of my patients were not getting the best patient care and teaching available. It is hard to be in the middle of something with a patient and have your pager constantly going off because another patient needs to go to the restroom, wants ...
