The Hospital Policy Board was set up to consider the evidence and support the Council of Ministers plan for the new hospital to be located on the existing site. This is to provide assurance over this decision and enable any concerns to be raised from the evidence that led to this decision ...
Pregnancy is a difficult and worrying time for any parent and mums are constantly told to watch their babies movements. Sadly some hospitals policies are still that you have to be 28 weeks to be monitored or scanned, before this only a heartbeat will be checked. This needs to change.. I was a normal healthy pregnancy until 25 weeks. My babies movements started to decrease and I let professionals know, but I wasnt listened to. I knew her pattern, I knew she wasnt moving as much.. I went in several times but pretty quickly discovered our hospitals policy along with some other hospitals is still 28 weeks to be scanned or monitored.. Checking for a heartbeat does not ensure baby is ok. If a baby has a heartbeat then you would assume all is fine, but sometimes this is not the case at all and baby is in trouble. Professionals tell you not to use home dopplers for reassurance for this very reason! Yet still a lot of hospitals policies state this is all that will be done if a mum is in for reduced ...

The doctors and staff Bradford Veterinary Clinic work very hard to give exemplary service to our clients and pets. One way that we can provide this service is to have appointments available when our clients and patients need them. Forgetting to come to an appointment happens on occasion but missed appointments mean other clients and patients in need must wait to be seen.. While we are sure the last thing clients who miss appointments want to do is create a barrier to the care of someone elses pet, that is, in effect, what happens when we do not have the option of scheduling into a time slot occupied by missed appointments. This is even more concerning when on rare occasions, a client misses a surgery time for which several hours have been reserved.. For this reason, Bradford Veterinary Clinic maintains a cancellation policy:. ...

Results 457 organisations participated (31% response rate); 77% employed less than 10 people, 17% between 10 and 50 and 6% more than 50. Risk assessments were common (67%) and 14% carried out any form of occupational asthma HS, rising to 19% if only organisations reporting asthma hazards and risks were considered. HS was carried out by both in-house (31%) and external providers (69%). Organisational policies were often used to define surveillance approaches (80%), but shared with the occupational health provider only in one third of cases.. Occupational health providers described considerable variation in practice, with differing approaches seen for information sharing and workplace visits. Record keeping was universal, but worker-held records were not reported. Health surveillance tools, such as a questionnaire, were generally developed in-house. Lung function was commonly measured, but only limited interpretation was evident. The referral of workers to local specialist respiratory services was ...

In my previous post I introduced the Security Awareness Maturity Model, a tool to help you and your organization identify how mature your security awareness program is and where you can take it. I would like to cover this model in more detail, specifically the first two of the five levels. Level 1: No Security Awareness Program Okay, this is pretty simple, there is no awareness program, there is no attempt to train and educate the organization. As a result people do not know or understand organizational policies and procedures, do not realize they are a target, and are highly vulnerable to most human based attacks. Only about 30% of the organizations I run into have absolutely no awareness program. Instead I find most organizations are at Level 2. This actually may not be a good thing. Level 2: Compliance Focused This is an awareness program designed primarily to meet specific compliance or audit requirements. Training is limited to annual or ad-hoc basis, such as an onsite presentation once a ...

Wesley Smith’s First Things column on the danger of hospital futile care policies sounds an alarm (Proposed Futile Care Hospital Policy Would Allow Committees to Overrule Patient Advance Directives). Smith is rightly concerned that a model Futile Care Protocol is to be promoted in the forthcoming issue of the Journal of Law and Medicine. A key element is to make sure that patients and their families understand that the hospital will always have the last word on medical treatment. I
As the decades progress, our arsenal of effective antibiotic agents becomes more limited by the changing patterns of antibiotic resistance. It is the job of the stewardship pharmacist to understand these trends in a quantitative way and to respond in a dynamic fashion. In addition to the active management of restricted antibiotic agents, the stewardship team is responsibility for the development of a large share of the hospitals policies and procedures regarding appropriate antimicrobial use. They work with the physician stewardship team and the P&T committee to answer questions such as: For which patient populations will we sanction the use of fidaxomicin in place of vancomycin for C. Difficle infections? My primary project was in this sort of policy development. My role was to evaluate the recent literature regarding the use of probiotics for C. Difficile prevention. This type of project has traditionally been one of my strong suits, but as I delved deeper, it turned into something of a mess. ...
The terms and conditions of your employment are governed by Hospital policies and procedures, which may be amended from time to time. The Hospitals employee intranet site is the primary location where these policies and procedures can be found. As an employee of the Hospital it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of these policies and procedures. Access to the Hospitals intranet site will be available once you are on site.. Depending on your position and employment type you may be represented by a union. Should this be the case, it will be specified in your offer of employment. If your position is included in one of the bargaining units, your terms and conditions of employment are set out in a collective agreement. Wherever terms or conditions of employment in a collective agreement differ from those of the Hospital, the collective agreement will prevail. A copy of your collective agreement will be provided to you by a representative from your union.. In preparation for your first ...
This recommendation leaves loopholes to vaccinate just about anyone, but is there any science to defend it? How could the benefit of vaccinating a severely-ill patient, or a patient who has organ impairment (and may not mount a significant antibody response anyway) outweigh the risk? Why is there such a rush to vaccinate all hospital patients even though any potential protection will not be present for weeks? Could it have more to do with medical policy and reimbursement than with what is in the best interest of a sick patient?. As doctors, this CDC recommendation isnt adhered to, because before we evaluate a patient, vaccines have already been given by nurses and others who have no medical mandate. This often occurs on the first hospital-day, not when they are "well enough to be discharged." My efforts to change the hospital vaccine policy to wait until discharge was categorically refused by the administration and hospital policy makers - at a meeting that I was not permitted to ...
Hello Ladies! I need a few tips in dealing with a post-ceserian hospital policy. The hospital I will be delivering at has a MANDATORY 4 HOUR mommy/baby seperation after cesarian. While I completely disagree with the policy and think its completely unfounded if mom & baby are healthy and recovered well, I understand that I wont be able to change the policy. With my last daughter (whom I also delivered via cesarian at the same hospital) they gave her a bottle during those 4 hrs in the nursery,

Updated 14 May 2014. Patients received safe care because risks to patients were understood and were being managed. Hospital policies were based on national standards and evidence-based guidelines and adherence with these was monitored. An uncommissioned 10% rise in demand for outpatient appointments over the past year meant the Trust struggled to meet national standards for referral to treatment time (RTT) for patients. The trust agreed to fail RTT targets for January, February, and March 2014 with the NHS Trust Development Authority, who provide oversight and governance for all NHS trusts, to enable patients who had been waiting longest to be prioritised. This meant that patient safety was prioritised over meeting targets.. Patients were unable to book into appointments using the Choose and Book system on 50% of attempts as this could not be done online and there were not enough administrative staff available to answer calls and make bookings. This resulted in poor experiences for some patients ...
Background: There is a dearth of evidence on the proportion of the hospital population at any one time, that is in the last year of life, and therefore on how hospital policies and services can be oriented to their needs. Aim:To establish the likelihood of death within 12 months of a cohort of hospital inpatients on a given census date. Design:Prevalent cohort study. Participants: In total, 10,743 inpatients in 25 Scottish teaching and general hospitals on 31 March 2010. Results: In all, 3098 (28.8%) patients died during follow-up: 2.9% by 7 days, 8.9% by 30 days, 16.0% by 3 months, 21.2% by 6 months, 25.5% by 9 months and 28.8% by 12 months. Deaths during the index admission accounted for 32.3% of all deaths during the follow-up year. Mortality rose steeply with age and was three times higher at 1 year for patients aged 85 years and over compared to those who were under 60 years (45.6% vs 13.1%; p , 0.001). In multivariate analyses, men were more likely to die than women (odds ratio: 1.18, 95% ...

original link with references www.medicalvoices.org. H1N1 and seasonal influenza vaccines are now being given to sick hospital patients with or without their doctors consent. This is being done despite there being no data on the safety of doing so. I am a licensed, board-certified nephrologist, otherwise known as a kidney specialist, working in a large, city-based hospital. Because I rarely admit patients to the hospital other than for specific procedures, such as a kidney biopsy, I only recently became aware of my hospitals policy regarding flu shots for sick people. Waking up to this new rule made me realize that Big Pharma is getting closer and closer to bypassing doctors completely to deliver direct patient "care". We have an elaborate electronic charting system at our hospital. All of the medications and procedure orders are placed into the patients record by doctors and nurses so that every person has access to all that is happening with the patient. A few weeks ago, I arrived to see my ...
Every nurse also took it upon herself (we saw only women nurses during our stay) to adjust my breast and Mikko on it. They did this roughly and without warning, swooping in to "correct" my latch. I wasnt having any pain, and I had not asked for help. I would have appreciated words of advice, but surprise rough handling of a delicate body part was hard to handle. They also kept readjusting my pillows and hospital bed incline, further disturbing our rest. All of their advice was contradictory, and it made me wonder if there shouldnt be a hospital policy about the "best" way to breastfeed, just to keep the contradictions lower. One would tell me I needed to lie completely on my side. The next nurse would come in and scold me for lying on my side and point out that my breast was now too low to align with my babys mouth. Another would come in and tell me I shouldnt be lying down at all. For my part, I was feeling overwhelmed, shy, and new to this whole mothering thing, and I didnt appreciate ...
Heres the most important part: Talk with your child about the change that will be happening. We are so used to doing things for our babies that its easy to forget to fill them in on the plans. Think about how you like requests to be made of you and go from there. From a very young age, younger than most of us expect, our children can understand more of our communication than we realize. If you think of yourself attending to your child the way we would hope a nurse would attend to us in a hospital, a new, helpful perspective may be found. Picture yourself in the hospital for whatever reason. Its the middle of the night and youre thirsty and so you press your call button and wait for someone to come help, but she never shows up. Or she does come, but when she arrives and you ask for a drink she announces that the new hospital policy, as of now, is that no liquids are given at night anymore. You probably wouldnt be happy about either of these scenarios hitting you without warning. But what if ...
I have lived and worked in urban India for nine years and during that time I have found that midwives are missing from the system. I have witnessed how hospital policies, mixed with religious or family tradition, harm women and their babies.. I have heard and read hundreds of stories about women in India who have been pressured into potentially unnecessary interventions with inaccurate, fear-mongering information. This breaks women. It damages them before they even begin to birth and care for their babies. Most women do not speak of these things because they are told that a healthy mother and baby is all that matters.. I have seen and heard of many tragic situations of pregnancy loss or stillbirth where the mother was not told the truth. In each case, the mother was told her baby was in the NICU. She was lied to and denied the right to meet her baby, to make memories, to grieve, to hold her baby. Mothers are too often then silenced in their grief.. I do not believe that a healthy mother and a ...

My doula came about 20 min after my husband called her, but by that point, in my mind I started to want an epidural. These contractions were different then my contractions with Kennedy. My contractions with Kennedy were in my back and my doula was able to massage them. This time around the contractions came from deep inside and I felt like I was being split in half and I knew that massages were not going to help me. My doula asked my nurse if I could go into the shower. Sitting in the bath really helped with my pain with Kennedys labor, so I was very excited about getting in to the tub. My doula explained to me because of hospital policy I wouldnt be allowed into the tub because my water was broken. Instead she asked the nurse if could I get into the shower. The nurse called the OB on call and the OB said, "NO". The OB said, I was a VBAC and she didnt want to take any chances. At that point, I realized because I was a VBAC they wouldnt let me do a lot of things to help me naturally manage ...

The nurse paged the attending resident last night (not from ID) and she came up to explain why they are giving the vanco. She had come by earlier to tell us but we were out to lunch. She said the same thing the nurse told me, that it is a gram positive cocci that started growing after 24 hours. They will not know what specific organism it is until a little later because they had so little to work with they had to let it multiply then see what it responds to. The called ID and they recommended the treatment. Since the process to culture the organism takes so long, hospital policy is to automatically start him on vancomyacin. The resident couldnt answer any of my other questions. I also asked the neuro-surgery residents this morning and they said I have to ask ID. Neuro did tell me this morning that the organism is not strep pneumo. It did not grow in the "Petri dish only in the broth" so that could mean it was a contaminant or it could mean it is staph. Once again they referred me to Infectious ...
What was the birth like? Did you have any complications? I had 2 instrumental deliveries with my first 2 and so the hospital policy is not to allow a homebirth but I was determined and with all the benefits of a homebirth and being comfortable in my own environment pushed my daughter out myself in our birthing pool. I am so proud of myself and will always have such wonderful memories of her birth. She was back to back so came out face up like my 2nd son and I am convinced that if I had been in hospital she would have been another forceps delivery ...

Semi-structured interviews with staff and senior staff at the case study institutions, as well as with key policy markers, will further illuminate the quantitative data. The interviews explore individual experiences and views on strategies and obstacles to widening participation, instances of good practice and positive institutional initiatives on widening participation and poverty reduction. Participants include national policy makers and staff at the case study institutions including senior academic staff, admissions managers, student support and welfare officers, directors of outreach programmes, and academic staff. The participants are asked about: their views on the effectiveness and scope of institutional policies for widening participation and poverty reduction, their thoughts on how national and international policies are being implemented in their institutions, what barriers to participation exist and what strategies could be put in place. 100 Interviews were undertaken with staff and ...
Quality of the evidence: We found no relevant high-quality experimental studies. A great limitation within observational studies is the heterogeneity of exposure definitions. There is large variability in policy formats, which can include several different characteristics, which in turn makes comparison difficult. Only a few studies are based on policy definition in written documents, while in the majority the information was obtained by interviewing school heads, teachers or administrators. With regard to analysis methods, some studies did not mention any adjustment for potential confounders and in the others there was a large variability in the factors considered for adjustment. Studies differed in statistical methods employed to examine the relationship between policy and smoking behaviour.. Conclusions: We cannot draw conclusions about the effectiveness of STP from currently available data. Large, possibly multi-centric studies, employing experimental or a quasi-experimental design to assess ...
University of the Pacifics Annual Clery Security and Safety Reports (Reports) include statistics concerning reported crimes that occurred on and around the Universitys three campuses located in Stockton, Sacramento, and San Francisco between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 for three previous years.

In this paper, we explore barriers to health for fat people. By shifting the focus from what fat people do or do not do, neoliberal principles are replaced by a focus instead on structural and institutional policies, attitudes, and practices. This includes the impact of stigma on the health treatment and health-seeking behavior of fat people. For example, we consider the role that provider anti-fat attitudes and confirmation bias play in the failure to provide evidenced-based healthcare to fat patients. This is an autoethnographic paper, which provides the opportunity to read research from the perspective of fat scholars, framed by questions such as: can fat people have health? Is health itself a state of being, a set of behaviors, a commodity, a performance; perhaps the new social contract? As a co-written autoethnographic paper, one aspect of the evidence provided is the recorded experiences of the two fat authors. This includes writing from notes, journals, compiled and repeated experiences with

We encourage employers to have written policies to ensure a drug and alcohol free workplace. Most do. The problem is in the execution. How do you enforce the policy? How do you balance the privacy concerns of the employee with the obligation to provide a safe workplace? Most important, how should you respond when you become aware of a potential danger? Lets say you take what you think is appropriate action because someone has a history of alcoholism and you think they look impaired, but it turns out you are wrong. They are perfectly sober. If you are not very careful, your "action" may be an act of discrimination. On the other hand, you have a popular employee who has four alcoholic drinks at lunch, but you take no action, because hes such a good guy. He drives off and wreaks havoc on the road - and because you had knowledge of the drinking, you are liable for your failure to take action. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place ...
Ill give a couple examples of my own.. At the hospital where I work the Infection Control policy is to wear gowns and gloves in the rooms of patients on contact isolation (as well as masks if its droplet isolation). But when we transport them through the halls, the patients are not to wear isolation gear of any kind. Why? It might alarm visitors and other patients.. The written policy re masks for droplet isolation is to wear them at all times in the room. Then take them off outside the room and deposit them in the trash can outside the door. After all, it wouldnt make much sense to wear the mask in the room till you finished your task, and then take it off and walk the eight feet from the patients trash can to the door unprotected - right? Only we dont have trash cans outside the door, because there are extremely detailed bureaucratic rules on what can be in the halls - its a JCAHO fire safety thing. I would also add that the safety departments in most large organizations are a stovepiped ...

One embodiment of the present invention provides a providing policy-driven intrusion detection system for a networked computer system. This system operates by receiving a global policy for intrusion detection for the networked computer system. This global policy specifies rules in the form of a global security condition for the networked computer system and a global response to be performed in response to the global security condition. The system compiles the global policy into local policies for local regions of the networked computer system. Each local policy specifies at least one rule in the form of a local security condition for an associated local region of the networked computer system and a local response to be performed in response to the local security condition. The system communicates the local policies to local analyzers that control security for the local regions. A local analyzer compiles a local policy into specifiers for local sensors in a local region associated with the local analyzer
