BACKGROUND: the delay of HIV diagnosis represents an important risk of spreading HIV infection within the community and, at the same time, a loss of opportunity for undiagnosed subjects to start the antiretroviral therapy. OBJECTIVES: to evaluate the difference, over time, between early and late HIV diagnosis in a large University Hospital of Southern Italy and to emphasize the importance of spreading the culture of prevention, based on the improvement of the HIV screening test adherence, in order to reduce the incidence of late HIV diagnosis. DESIGN: retrospective cross-sectional study. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: all the HIV screening tests performed in the six-year period 2013-2018 by the HIV laboratory of a third-level University hospital of Sicily (Southern Italy) were considered. The tests were performed on four categories of patients: voluntary HIV screening participants, inpatients, outpatients, and healthcare workers. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: number of performed HIV tests and frequency of ...

The COVID-19 outbreak strongly affected Italy, putting a strain on the National healthcare system. Hospitals quickly reorganized the activity to cope with the emergency. This retrospective comparative study aimed to analyze the impact of the lockdown imposed in Italy during the COVID-19 outbreak on acute orthopedic trauma, in order to identify critical issues for improvement and future planning. We collected data on all the trauma admissions to a single University hospital DEA (Department of Emergency and Acceptance) in Rome during the COVID- 19 pandemic lockdown in Italy, comparing them with the corresponding period in 2019. We reported demographic data; the characteristics of the injury, including the anatomical location, fracture, sprain, dislocation, contusion, laceration, whether the injury site was exposed or closed, where the injury occurred, and polytrauma. We also recorded the waiting time in the emergency room and mode of transportation. The study sample was composed of 1199 patients, ...
HH is considered to be the most important measure to prevent nosocomial infections [5], therefore the WHO started a global campaign to ensure that infection control is acknowledged universally [14]. As suggested by Erasmus, the first step toward developing interventions should be to identify the prevalence of risk behavior, such as non-compliance [5]. Previously, multiple studies were undertaken to identify barriers [18] and within our HH campaign 8 barriers were ranked. The top five reasons for non-hand washing were: i) an emergency case, ii) the use of gloves, iii) no reason to clean the hands, iv) forgetting and finally v) not enough time. In promoting the HH campaign for three years, only two of the top five barriers improved within surgical departments. For diverse reasons, five departments were underrepresented in the online survey; however, the study provides insights into and gives tips for the necessity of senior managers at all levels to support the HH campaign in order to achieve a ...
I wouldnt have ever considered becoming an invasive cardiologist without the influence of Andreas, which makes giving this lecture quite an emotional experience, says Meier, now head of Cardiology at University Hospital Bern. Indeed, Meier, then a resident at University Hospital Zurich, played the vital role of sourcing the patient for Grüntzigs historic coronary angioplasty procedure.. Recalling the ringside seat he had watching Grüntzigs technical progress, Meier remembers how his mentor got ahead of the game by recruiting a plastics expert to develop form-constant PVC balloons allowing correspondence between balloon size and pressure. Andreas had a contagious energy, but behind his charm was a steely determination that got things done, recalls Meier, who in 1981 followed his mentor to work at Emory University in Atlanta.. Returning to Switzerland in 1983, Meiers noteworthy achievements include launching the renowned Geneva course that trained thousands of European interventional ...

High throughput NIPT for fetal RHD genotype was implemented initially on a pilot basis in 2 locations within the UHB trust from April 2013 (Soothill et al 2014)1 . On completion of the initial pilot, agreement was gained to extend the pilot for 1 year to all the women attending community services for antenatal care under UHB. This extended pilot offered an opportunity to gather patient and midwife feedback and helped to gain clinical acceptance for use in routine clinical practice. Cost savings were demonstrated which helped to secure support from senior managers.. Senior staff provided 30 minute training sessions in the community to optimise attendance. These included an update on Rhesus D and presentation and feedback on new local guidelines.. A local clinical guideline was developed which includes a care pathway and the RAADP algorithm. It contains two main routes in the patient pathway; women who 1) accept and 2) decline the FFDNA test.. A paper test request form is used due to the ...

The year 1998 celebrated 25 years of transplantation at University Hospital. Scientific discoveries were made during that time, which dramatically improved the control of rejection. As a result, more than 2,500 patients had received transplants in Londons Multi-Organ Transplant Program. The dozen individuals featured in this calendar are recipients of a variety of organ and tissue transplants. They demonstrate the well-being and good health that the vast majority of transplant recipients enjoy. As much as this anniversary is a celebration of their success it is just as much a tribute to the donors and their families who, at a time of grief over the loss of a loved one, gave the gift of life to strangers. Their compassion and generosity is the foundation that makes transplantation possible. Back to Historical Events ...

Leech therapy in plastic/reconstructive microsurgery significantly improves a successful outcome of flap salvage but the drawback is a risk of severe infection that results in a drop of the salvage rates from 70-80% to below 30%. We report the results of a national survey conducted in all the French university hospitals to assess the current extent of use of leech for medical practices in the hospital and to investigate maintenance, delivery practices and prevention of the risk of infection. Data concerning conditions of storage, leech external decontamination, microbiological controls, mode of delivery and antibiotic prophylaxis were collected from all the French university hospitals in practicing leech therapy, on the basis of a standardized questionnaire. Twenty-eight of the 32 centers contacted filled the questionnaire, among which 23 practiced leech therapy, mostly with a centralized storage in the pharmacy; 39.1% of the centers declared to perform leech external decontamination and only 2 centers

Improving patient safety has become a major focus of clinical care and research over the past two decades. An institutions patient safety climate represents an essential component of ensuring a safe environment and thereby can be vital to the prevention of adverse events. Covering six patient safety related factors, the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire (SAQ) is a validated and widely used instrument to measure the patient safety climate in clinical areas. The objective of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of the German language version of the SAQ. A survey was carried out in two University Hospitals in Switzerland in autumn 2009 where the SAQ was distributed to a sample of 406 nurses and physicians in medical and surgical wards. Following the American Educational Research Association guidelines, we tested the questionnaire validity by levels of evidence: content validity, internal structure and relations to other variables. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to examine factor
Results Sixty-four patients (51 women (79.7%), mean age =61.2 years) were included. Mean disease duration was 16.4 years and 46 patients (71.8%) had already received one or more anti-TNF treatments. At 6 months, 46 patients (71.8%) had moderate-to-good response to RTX. Thirty-seven patients, of whom 6 were positive, had EBV-load measure before RTX. After 6 months, all were negative. Positivity for RF (odds ratio 0,53 [95% confidence interval O,1-2,8]), or positive initial EBV load (odds ratio 0,2 [95% confidence interval 0,03 - 1,3])were not associated with good-to-moderate response. Positivity for anti-CCP was associated with good-to-moderate response (odds ration 4,3 [95% confidence interval 1,2 - 15,7]). High level of gammaglobulin (,12g/L) was correlated with non-response to RTX (odds ratio 0,05 [95% confidence interval 0,03-0,66]).. ...

Background: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), which are mesenchymal neoplasms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract account for 0.2% of all GI tumors. Several factors have been reported (mostly from studies conducted in Western countries) to be associated with survival in GISTs cases such as tumor site, staging, and tumor size. We conducted a pragmatic study, looking at a 10-year period, aimed at understanding the prognostic factors related to GISTs in a university hospital. The study population consisted of patients with large symptomatic GISTs. Methods: This was a retrospective study conducted at the Department of Surgery in the Khon Kaen University Hospital (Thailand). All patients diagnosed with GISTs that were treated between 2006 and 2015 were consecutively enrolled. The diagnosis of GISTs was made by examining the pathological section and immunohistochemistry results. The outcome of this study was the rate of survival after surgical treatment. Prognostic factors were determined using Cox

This study shows significant differences between women and men holding permanent/staff medical positions, with differences progressively increasing in relation to the grade of advance in hierarchical promotion, and also in PC promotion. This implies that despite the proportion of women among training specialists having increased up to 50%, the bias in favour of men after completion of their specialist training could be due to the selection criteria for permanent positions. Thus, when women physicians thereafter apply for PC promotion, they have not yet obtained a permanent position, delaying the time for promotion in comparison to that of men physicians with similar years of professional experience. Using a statistical model to evaluate factors associated with the continuous career progression of medical women compared to men over a 13-year study period, the probability of promotion decreased with the year of the application and the age of the applicant, except in women. The absence of a ...

To the editor: Amikacin, a semisynthetic derivative of kanamycin A, was approved for unrestricted clinical use in 1976 and is considered the antibiotic of choice for use against infections with gentamicin-resistant, gram-negative bacilli (1, 2). In a recent issue, Betts and colleagues (3) have reported data on the use of amikacin as the primary empiric aminoglycoside in a large university hospital. The authors have concluded that because it is not possible to identify patients infected with gentamicin-resistant organisms until 48 hours after therapy is initiated, it is rational to use an antibiotic agent that is likely to be effective against ...
