The 30-day mortality rate for these high-risk patients was 15.9% at major teaching hospitals, compared with 18.2% at non-teaching hospitals, according to researchers at Penn Medicine, who examined the medical records of 350,000 Medicare beneficiaries who underwent general, vascular or orthopedic surgery at 2,780 hospitals across the country, including 340 major teaching hospitals.. ...
Background: Nosocomial infections (NIs) constitute an important worldwide health problem with high morbidity and mortality rate as well as economic consequences. We aimed to determine incidence of nosocomial infection in surgical intensive care unit (SICU). Aims & Objectives: To find out incidence of nosocomial infection in surgical intensive care unit (SICU) at a large teaching hospital in North India. Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted during a period of one year from 1st Oct 2013 to 30th Sep 2014 in SICU of SKIMS. The researcher visited the SICU on daily basis at 10 am in the morning to note down presence or absence of signs and symptoms of nosocomial infection as per the laid down criteria. The researcher used inpatient records, interacted with clinical staff to establish absence or presence of nosocomial infection. Criteria for establishment of nosocomial infections were adopted in accordance with the simplified definition derived from the Centre for disease control, USA. ...
A total of 7603 patients were identified, with 61.2% (n = 4650) in the teaching hospital group and 38.8% (n = 2953) in the nonteaching hospital group. The proportion of patients undergoing revision procedures was significantly different between groups (5.2% in teaching hospitals vs 3.9% in nonteaching hospitals, p = 0.008). Likewise, complex procedures (defined as fusion of 8 or more segments and/or osteotomy) were more common in teaching hospitals (27.3% vs 21.7%, p , 0.001). Crude overall complication rates were similar in teaching hospitals (47.9%) compared with nonteaching hospitals (49.8%, p = 0.114). After controlling for patient characteristics, case complexity, and revision status, patients treated at teaching hospitals were significantly less likely to develop a complication when compared with patients treated at a nonteaching hospital (OR 0.89; 95% CI 0.82-0.98). The mortality rate was 0.4% in teaching hospitals and , 0.4% in nonteaching hospitals (p = 0.210). ...
Utilization of gastroprotective strategies for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced gastrointestinal events in a major teaching hospital Hooi Leng Lee,1 Siew Siang Chua,1 Sanjiv Mahadeva2 1Department of Pharmacy, 2Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Background and purpose: Clinical guidelines recommend the prescribing of gastroprotective strategies in nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) users with risk factors for gastrointestinal (GI) ulcer or ulcer complications. However, these guidelines are not often translated into clinical practice. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the utilization of gastroprotective strategies for NSAID-induced upper GI events in at-risk users in a major teaching hospital. Patients and methods: A cross-sectional, observational, pharmacy-based study was conducted in a major Asian institution with both primary and secondary health care services. This study involved the screening of

Antibacterial drugs (hereafter referred to as antibiotics) are crucial to treat infections during delivery and postpartum period to reduce maternal mortality. Institutional deliveries have the potential to save lives of many women but extensive use of antibiotics, add to the development and spread of antibiotic resistance. The aim of this study was to present antibiotic prescribing among inpatients during and after delivery in a non-teaching, tertiary care hospital in the city of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, India. A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted including women having had either a vaginal delivery or a cesarean section in the hospital. Trained nursing staff collected the data on daily bases, using a specific form attached to each patient file. Statistical analysis, including bivariate and multivariable logistic regression was conducted. Of the total 1077 women, 566 (53%) had a vaginal delivery and 511 (47%) had a cesarean section. Eighty-seven percent of the women that had a vaginal

The postoperative stage includes recovery care and treatment in an inpatient surgical unit and/or an intensive care unit and ends with discharge from hospital. The following is a summary of the processes in surgical care at major teaching hospitals in Canada. When necessary, primary care physicians refer to a specialist any patient who presents with signs and symptoms specific to a condition that is amenable to surgical intervention. If, following an outpatient consultation, surgery is deemed necessary, staff in the surgeons office register the patient on an appropriate wait list and sends the request for operating room time to hospitals where the surgeon has admitting privileges. Interpretation The graph of the access function, or access curve, is an informative visual tool for monitoring hospital waitlist statistics and studying access to surgery [78]. 1 presents an example of an access curve that summarizes the probabilities of undergoing elective vascular surgery at a tertiary care center ...

I read with interest some of the stories regarding surgical internship and residency and unfortunately it doesnt seem that this topic has touched upon the issue of surgical intervention by surgeons when non surgical intervention may be just as viable I practiced medicine in San Francisco for years as an endocrinologist and one day I fell walking my dog down a steep hill. I immediately consulted with the chief of orthopedic surgery at a major teaching hospital regarding an isolated fibular fracture(bimalleolar). Immediately she said she would get me in for screws and a plate the next morning since she recognized me. After looking at the film and the extent of the fracture, I went for a second opinion where we decided to proceed with ultrasound and after 9 weeks of intensive treatment and a boot, the imaging showed correct alignment and proper healing of the bone. Twenty years later and the ankle still remains strong, with no arthritis My point being, hospitals welcome surgical intervention as a ...

Itd be wrong for me to suggest to commissioners how to do their job. I have met very few commissioners, or indeed managers in health or social care. When I was a junior doctor at major teaching hospitals in Cambridgeshire and London, I had met none in fact. I think living with a condition, and knowing how to prepare for a good death when the time comes, are positive things - overmedicalising someone emphasising illness overly, at the expense of appreciating personhood, is not helpful?. I perceive increasing dementia awareness as very important, in fact. I included a section on the "Dementia Friends" programme, delivered by the Alzheimers Society and Public Health England, in my second book on dementia ("Living better with dementia: good practice and innovation for the future"); my first book, based on the NICE QS30 standard for promoting wellbeing in dementia, won best book of the year award for health and social care for the BMJ Book Awards in 2015 (click here to download the pamphlet on ...
Current use of fetal tissue. From 1994 to 2002, 19 separate biomedical researchers at 12 separate Australian institutions (four universities, six major teaching hospitals and two research institutes) used human fetal tissue in their research. The actual tissues used (detailed in Box 2) were determined by the individual research projects. In 1994, eye tissue made up nearly half of the distributed tissue. There was an increase in the use of bone/cartilage during 1996-2001, kidneys during 1996-1999, and liver and spinal cord over the past 4 years.. From 1994 to 2002, the tissue was used exclusively for biomedical research. In the previous decade, it was also used for therapeutic purposes,3 in an attempt to replenish ß cells in people with type 1 diabetes.6 These trials, which demonstrated survival but not function of the grafts, were discontinued as supply of second trimester tissue was limited. The research projects for which human fetal tissues were used included tissue development, mechanism of ...

Find out if you live anywhere near a community or teaching hospital. They should be able to treat you for low cost or free if you are unable to pay. If you are anywhere near a teaching hospital, that is, a hospital that has medical residents they are often community hospitals. You can talk to someone first in admissions or billing about working something out. Because teaching hospitals have medical residents, they have teams who work together and might work collaboratively on your case. Medical residents are licensed doctors, but they have to complete a certain number of hours of hospital work under supervision before they can function as doctors independently. This is often a way for people to get good quality medical care with the latest medical knowledge for a lower price or free. I know this because I know medical residents working at community teaching hospitals in major cities. They treat people all the time who cannot pay ...
Background: Adverse events (AEs) are adverse outcomes caused by medical care. Several studies have indicated that a substantial number of patients experience AEs before or during hospitalization. However, few data describe AEs after hospital discharge. We determined the incidence, severity, preventability and ameliorability of AEs in patients discharged from the general internal medicine service of a Canadian hospital. Methods: At a multisite Canadian teaching hospital, we prospectively studied patients who were consecutively discharged home or to a seniors residence from the general internal medicine service during a 14-week interval in 2002. We used telephone interview and chart review to identify outcomes after discharge. Two physicians independently reviewed each outcome to determine if the patient experienced an AE. The severity, preventability and ameliorability of all AEs were classified. Results: During the study period, outcomes were determined for 328 of the 361 eligible patients, who ...

Thats pretty much how it works. Though sometimes the person that comes calling with the death certificate is a hospital clerk. And she will make you fill out the form carefully, using only allowable causes of death.. Of course, everyone dies from the same thing:lack of oxygen to the brain. But you cant list that. Nor can you list common "jargon-y" favorites like "cardiopulmonary arrest," "respiratory failure," "sepsis," or "multi-system organ failure." All of which are true, but too inexact to be useful.. Its intimidating to be the one to "pronounce" someone dead, and be the final arbiter of the cause. Isnt that why we have medical examiners/pathologists?. We dont autopsy patients much anymore, a trend that concerns many in the industry but doesnt seem likely to change. That leaves interns and residents (at teaching hospitals) and community docs (in the real world) in charge of filling out these important statistical and historic documents.. When you care for a patient that dies in the ...

Hospitals that focus too tightly on cutting costs may create preventable problems such as medication errors and hospital-acquired infections, according to a new study by two Boston-area hospitals. To gather data, researchers studied four hospitals, including two urban teaching hospitals and two suburban hospitals, looking at 6,841 patient records over 12 months. The study found that when patient-to-nurse ratios at one of the four unnamed hospitals studied climbed 10 percent, the hospital …
TY - JOUR. T1 - A Prognostic Model for 1-Year Mortality in Older Adults after Hospital Discharge. AU - Levine, Stacie K.. AU - Sachs, Greg A.. AU - Jin, Lei. AU - Meltzer, David. PY - 2007/5/1. Y1 - 2007/5/1. N2 - Purpose: To develop and validate a prognostic index for 1-year mortality of hospitalized older adults using standard administrative data readily available after discharge. Subjects and methods: The prognostic index was developed and validated retrospectively in 6382 older adults discharged from general medicine services at an urban teaching hospital over a 4-year period. Potential risk factors for 1-year mortality were obtained from administrative data and examined using logistic regression models. Each risk factor associated independently with mortality was assigned a weight based on the odds ratios, and risk scores were calculated for each patient by adding the points of each independent risk factor present. Patients in the development cohort were divided into quartiles of risk based ...
Introduction and Objectives BTS guidelines suggest the diagnostic test for pneumonia (in hospital) is a CXR. Since management should be commenced within 4 h of arrival the initial interpretation of the CXR is most often performed by junior doctors. Consultants review patients and their CXRs within 24 h of admission and a radiologists report is issued at a later time point but diagnosis dependent decisions-whether to admit, risk stratification and whether to give antibiotics-fall to junior doctors. We measured the inter-observer agreement within groups of doctors involved at key points in CAP diagnosis and management. Methods 24 admission CXRs from patients attending a large teaching hospital between February and April 2011 with a suspected diagnosis of CAP were collected on a radiology computer workstation. Eleven reporting radiologists, eight attending consultants and twenty-two junior doctors from a range of acute medical specialties were recruited. All 41 recruits independently interpreted ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The use of nicotine-replacement therapy by hospitalized smokers. AU - Rigotti, Nancy A.. AU - Arnsten, Julia H.. AU - McKool, Kathleen M.. AU - Wood-Reid, Kristen M.. AU - Singer, Daniel E.. AU - Pasternak, Richard C.. PY - 1999/11. Y1 - 1999/11. N2 - Background: No-smoking policies are mandatory in U.S. hospitals. Consequently, smokers who are hospitalized must temporarily stop smoking. Nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT) could help hospitalized smokers relieve nicotine withdrawal symptoms, comply with no-smoking policies, and sustain tobacco abstinence after discharge. The extent of NRT use in the hospital setting is unknown. We describe the prevalence and patterns of NRT use in hospitalized smokers. Design: Prospective observational study within a randomized smoking-intervention trial. Setting/Participants: Six hundred fifty adult smokers admitted to the medical and surgical services of a large urban teaching hospital that prohibits smoking in all indoor areas. Follow-up was at ...
Objectives: Death rates are an outcome that can be used to describe a service. We measured three death rates that can be used to describe an emergency department (ED): death rates for those seen in the ED and discharged, those that die within the ED, and those that die after admission. We also wanted to establish how easy it was to obtain these rates and how frequently autopsy was performed.. Setting: ED within a large teaching hospital.. Results: Between 1 December 2003 and 1 December 2004, 76 060 patients attended the ED of which 205 died within the department. A total of 16 489 were admitted of which 876 died within 30 days. A total of 59 366 were discharged home of which 111 subsequently died over the next 30 days. The rates were 0.19% (111/59 366) for those discharged, 4.6% (766/16 489) for those admitted, and 0.27% (205/76 060) for those patients attending the ED who died within it. The autopsy rate was low (20%) and was more likely if the patient died in the department, died within the ...
OBJECTIVE: To report and analyse the pattern of end-of-life decision making for terminal Chinese cancer patients. DESIGN: Retrospective descriptive study. SETTING: A cancer clinical trials unit in a large teaching hospital. PATIENTS: From April 1992 to August 1997, 177 consecutive deaths of cancer clinical trial patients were studied. MAIN MEASUREMENT: Basic demographic data, patient status at the time of signing a DNR consent, or at the moment of returning home to die are documented, and circumstances surrounding these events evaluated. RESULTS: (...) DNR orders were written for 64.4% of patients. Patients in pain (odds ratio 0.45, 95% CI 0.22-0.89), especially if requiring opioid analgesia (odds ratio 0.40, 95% CI 0.21-0.77), were factors associated with a higher probability of such an order. Thirty-five patients were taken home to die, a more likely occurrence if the patient was over 75 years (odds ratio 0.12, 95% CI 0.04-0.34), had children (odds ratio 0.14, 95% CI 0.02-0.79), had Taiwanese ...

Introduction: As we entered the post 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic period, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention reported that a third of H1N1 deaths were attributed to co-infection with common pneumonia causing bacteria.We performed a study of all the H1N1 positive admissions to a large teaching hospital during the most recent flu season in 2010/11 with the aim of looking at radiological diagnosis of pneumonia and its relation to morbidity and mortality.. Methods: We retrospectively analysed the electronic records and radiology for all patients admitted with H1N1 infection between 1st November 2010 and 31st January 2011.Complications and respiratory support (invasive or non-invasive) were used as markers of morbidity.. Results: 280 (mean age 39.5) patients had laboratory confirmed H1N1 infection. 96 (34.3%; mean age 44.5) had radiological pneumonia (48 unilateral, 48 bilateral);mortality 8.3%. 36 (37.5%) had no co-morbidities. Of all those that died with H1N1 8/37 (21.6%) had pneumonia. ...
Back in the day before HIPPA, one could do a lot of things. When I was 16, I also did a lot of things that today would not be possible. The problem with volunteering these days is that just like you said, when the pt is watching you have to get them to sign a paper that says YOU can watch, not just those actually taking care of that pt. Some people dont have time to discuss that piece of paper and probably anything truly WORTH watching you wont get to see anyway. As a volunteer (my brother is currently a pre-med, about to start 4th year of college and in the middle of his med school apps), he volunteers in the ER in a large teaching hospital and gets to fill out the pt board and to answer the phone. Occasionally, if the resident/fellow/attending is nice and he bugs him/her enough, he gets to see an IV get started or a cool laceration suturing, etc. Honestly, if he told me that he understands what its like to be a physician, I beg to differ. BUT, med schools will definitely love those ...
