Study Purpose: Substance Use Among Violently Injured Youth in an Urban Emergency Department was an investigation into the natural course of service needs, use, and trajectories among high-risk youth with drug use who present to an inner-city Emergency Department with multiple risk behaviors (with and without acute violent injury). By over-sampling of a violently injured group, the study was able to obtain a sufficient sample size that has been lacking in prior work limiting conclusions and intervention development. The specific aims of the study included:. Specific Aim 1: To describe multiple risk behaviors of youth/young adults (ages 14-24) who report illicit drug use and who present to an urban Emergency Department for an acute violent injury (e.g., laceration, gun shot wound), compared to youth with drug use who seek non-violence related Emergency Department care (for unintentional injury and illness, e.g., motor vehicle crash, abdominal pain). Specific Aim 2: To identify the trajectories of ...

Emergency departments may be a useful information source to describe the demographics and clinical characteristics of patients with acute cocaine-related medical problems. We therefore conducted a retrospective analysis of 165 acute, laboratory-confirmed cocaine intoxications admitted to an urban emergency department in Switzerland between January 2007 and March 2011. A total of 165 patients with a mean age of 32 years were included. Most patients were male (73%) and unemployed (65%). Only a minority (16%) had abused cocaine alone while 84% of the patients had used at least one additional substance, most commonly ethanol (41%), opioids (38%), or cannabis (36%) as confirmed by their detection in blood samples. The most frequently reported symptoms were chest pain (21%), palpitations (19%), anxiety (36%) and restlessness (36%). Psychiatric symptoms were present in 64%. Hypertension and tachycardia were observed in 53% and 44% of the patients, respectively. Severe poisonings only occurred in patients with
There is a growing interest in high income countries to control expenditure on medicines by improving the rationale for their selection. However, in middle income countries with differing priorities and needs, little attention has been paid to this issue. In this paper we explore the policies and processes for the selection and use of medicines in a group of hospitals in Chile, a middle income country which has recently joined the OECD. A combination of qualitative and quantitative methods was used. A national survey questionnaire was distributed to investigate the role and operation of PTCs (Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committees). Interviews were conducted with key actors in the selection of medicines in large urban public hospitals. The national survey had an overall response rate of 42% (83 out of 196), whilst 7 out of 14 hospitals participated in the qualitative study. High complexity hospitals are large urban hospitals; all of which claim to have a working PTC. The pharmacy offices are mainly

Since hurricane Sandy, a number of New York City hospitals have been scrambling to deal with a sharp increase in patients, forcing them to add shifts of doctors and nurses on overtime, to convert offices and lobbies to use for patients care, and even, in one case, to go to a local furniture store to buy extra beds. At Beth Israel Medical Center, 11 blocks south of the Bellevue Hospital Center emergency room, which was shuttered because of storm damage, the average number of visits to the E.R. per day has risen to record levels. Visits have increased by 24 percent this November compared with last, and the numbers show no sign of dropping. Hospital admissions have risen 12 percent compared with last November.
The healthcare industry includes establishments ranging from small-town private practices of physicians who employ only one medical assistant to busy inner-city hospitals that provide thousands of diverse jobs.

In contrast, 72 percent of hospital employees were in establishments with more than 1,000 workers.. The healthcare industry consists of the following segments:. Hospitals. Hospitals provide complete medical care, ranging from diagnostic services, to surgery, to continuous nursing care. Some hospitals specialize in treatment of the mentally ill, cancer patients, or children. Hospital-based care may be on an inpatient (overnight) or outpatient basis. The mix of workers needed varies, depending on the size, geographic location, goals, philosophy, funding, organization, and management style of the institution. As hospitals work to improve efficiency, care continues to shift from an inpatient ...

The "Blood for Britain" program during the early 1940s was quite successful (and popular in the United States) based on Charles Drews contribution. A large project began in August 1940 to collect blood in New York City hospitals for the export of plasma to Britain. Drew was appointed medical supervisor of the "Plasma for Britain" project. His notable contribution at this time was to transform the test tube methods of many blood researchers into the first successful mass production techniques. Nevertheless, the decision was made to develop a dried plasma package for the armed forces as it would reduce breakage and make the transportation, packaging, and storage much simpler.[8] The resulting dried plasma package came in two tin cans containing 400 cc bottles. One bottle contained enough distilled water to reconstitute the dried plasma contained within the other bottle. In about three minutes, the plasma would be ready to use and could stay fresh for around four hours.[9] The Blood for Britain ...

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 ...

Dr. de Villiers and Partners, the X-ray practice at Johannesburgs Netcare Garden City Hospital, has modernised the way it hands over x-rays and corresponding reports to its patients and referring doctors by installing an Epson Discproducer PP-100 CD/DVD disc publisher and printer.. The efficiency of the Epson Discproducer means that the radiologists can copy their patients x-rays and reports to a DVD in four minutes, and a CD in two minutes, saving them, the referring doctor and the patient time and money.. "Until October 2013, we produced conventional X-ray films for all our patients, which meant that they had to wait for extended periods of time while plates were processed, films produced, and reports typed," says Leonie Tromp, the control radiographer at the practice.. "Now that we have installed the Epson Discproducer PP-100, we have significantly sped up the overall process, allowing us to see more patients in less time.". The Discproducer holds up to 100 discs, allowing hands-free ...
In a way, the Homecoming article and a politically polarizing fight halfway around the world seemed both disconnected and attached at the same time, possibly because the boys getting out of school in 1972 were also some of the last ones to get draft cards. It made me wonder if maybe Bellevue Highs last hurrah in 1971 - which crowned Joan Kimball as their queen forever - was truly more profound when faced with the grave reality of life outside school walls. This was going to take some research.. My go-to person for anything 70s in Bellevue had plenty to say about Joan.. "She was my idol in high school," wrote Trisha Margaret - Bellevue Class of `73. "Smart, pretty, popular yet very unassuming. Joan was an inspiration to me.". Those words came as a heartfelt message from the past; a description of that depth - shared forty years after the fact - meant that Joan had left an impression on people. Another comment by an admirer was equally as considerate: "Bet she is still a warm, approachable ...
