To evaluate whether occupational stress factors (high demands, low control, low social support, strain, and iso-strain) are associated with skin disorders in hospital workers and whether psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression, act as potential mechanisms through which occupational stress factors are associated with skin disorders. 1,744 hospital workers were invited to answer a questionnaire concerning the occurrence of skin disorders and psychosocial factors at work. The abbreviated Italian version of the Demand/Control model (Karasek) was used to assess perceived work strain, while the Goldberg scales were used to assess anxiety and depression. Analyses were adjusted for age, gender, occupation, latex glove use and history of atopy. Of the participants, 25% reported hand dermatitis in the previous 12 months and 35% had been affected by skin disorders in other parts of the body. High job demands (OR = 1.09 CI95% 1.05-1.14), low social support (OR = 0.90, CI95% 0.87-0.93), high strain
A study released on Friday showed that cell phones belonging to hospital workers are covered in bacteria including the superbug, MRSA, the AFP reported. Experts fear it could become a serious source of hospital-acquired infections.. After testing the phones and hands of 200 doctors and nurses working in hospital operating rooms and intensive care units, researchers from the Ondokuz Mayis University in Turkey found that some 95 percent of cell phones were contaminated with at least one type of bacteria.. The report, published in BioMed Centrals Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials, showed that many of the hospital workers had a strong potential to cause illness ranging from minor skin irritations to deadly disease due to cross-contamination.. Researchers, led by Fatma Ulger, found that almost 35 percent of workers carried two types of bacteria, and more than 11 percent carried three or more different species of bugs.. The study noted that only a small sample (10 percent) of staff ...

Wounds provide an ideal environment for bacterial growth and are readily colonised by microorganisms of indigenous, human origin and in many cases by environmental contaminants. Bacteria attach to a coating known as the extracellular matrix, a mesh of proteins that encompasses the cells of the wound bed. Once attached, bacteria proliferate to form micro-colonies, secreting a thick polysaccharide layer that protects against environmental challenges such as the host immune system or antimicrobial treatments. Micro-colonies eventually develop into a biofilm, which is a dynamic microbial community comprised of diverse bacterial species.. ...

Background. Prior research on work-related factors in the aetiology of psychiatric disorders has been concentrated on job control, job demands and social support. To broaden the view to managerial procedures, we examined whether the extent to which employees are treated with equity in the workplace predicts their mental health. Organizational equity refers to decision-making procedures, which are consistently applied, open, correctable and include input from affected parties (procedural justice). It also refers to respectful and considerate treatment of individuals by supervisors (relational justice).. Method. A cohort of 1786 female hospital employees with no psychiatric disorder at baseline responded to a questionnaire on organizational equity. From the responses, both an individual score and a work unit mean score were assigned to each participant. The outcome was new reports of doctor-diagnosed psychiatric disorders during the 2-year follow-up. Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were ...

Only 4.1% of hospital personnel had either a weak or no response, whereas 2.3% had a transient response. These results are in agreement with previous studies (2, 3).

Being "old school," I dont like to see people wearing scrubs outside of the hospital. But there is no evidence that bacteria on scrubs spread disease, and a large number of ancillary hospital personnel wear scrubs.. Every few months when things are slow, someone publishes an article about the imaginary dangers associated with doctors wearing scrubs in public. A recent version is from The Atlantic. An associate editor saw some people in scrubs having lunch in a restaurant and was, of course, horrified. She questioned the magazines medical editor, Dr. James Hamblin, whose response was remarkably reasoned (until the end).. He pointed out that it might not have been doctors because everyone, including secretaries (and even custodial people in my hospital), now wears scrubs to work. Dr. Hamblin rightly added that there is a lot of debate about the issue. He speculated that some guys wear scrubs in public as a signal to women that they are doctors.. But at the end of the piece, he said it was OK if ...
Our report [2] provides another important lesson. The diagnosis of tuberculosis was first considered at autopsy, when the skin lesion was examined histologically. Had the autopsy not been requested by the attending physician and agreed to by the family, the subsequent contact investigation would not have been initiated, and the infected hospital personnel would not have been provided with prophylaxis in a timely fashion. That two nurses who did not receive prophylaxis developed clinical tuberculosis suggests that additional cases might have occurred, with the potential for further secondary spread ...
A wireless local area network (WLAN) system comprises multiple access points that are distributed throughout a medical facility to provide wireless access to a hardwired network. The access points implement multiple WLAN protocols, including a realtime protocol for realtime patient monitoring (telemetry) and a standard WLAN protocol (such as IEEE 802.11 within an ISM band) for providing general-purpose wireless access. Some or all of the access points preferably implement both WLAN protocols such that the different WLANs and wireless device types share network access resources. Some or all of the access points may also include RF location-tracking modules which may be used to track locations of patients, hospital personnel, capital equipment, and/or disposable medical supplies. Also disclosed are an antenna design which may be used with the access points to improve reception (particularly for patient monitoring), and a TDMA timeslot rotation method for avoiding lockstep interference between access
Landsteiner subsequently discovered three of the four genetically determined blood groups or types, O, A and B. A couple of years later, Alfred von Decastello and Adriano Sturli, Landsteiners colleagues in Vienna, identified a fourth blood group, AB. While about 30 blood types have been discovered, the original four essentially cover everyone.. In 1910, at the Heidelberg Institute for Experimental Cancer Research in Germany, Ludwig Hirszfeld and Emil von Dungern demonstrated that blood type is an inherited trait.. In the speech he made when he accepted the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his work, Landsteiner described the mystery blood presented, and how he and his fellow researchers unraveled its secrets.. In 1922, Landsteiner moved to the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research in New York, where he discovered an extremely powerful blood antigen he called "the Rh factor.". Today, hospital personnel make sure they know a mothers blood type in case she needs a transfusion. She will also be tested ...

"Hospitals recently have been granted some important regulatory relief, such as the implementation of a 12-month moratorium on the outdated long-term care hospital 25 percent Rule, as well as a 90-day reporting period and flexibility in the use of technology for the meaningful use program for fiscal year 2018.

She underwent POEM under general anaesthesia. We used a high definition endoscope (Olympus GIF H180) and transparent cap (Olympus MH 588). An incision was made in the mucosa 15cms above the GE junction using a hybrid knife ( electrogenerator, Erbe Vio 300D; Erbe Elektromedizin, Germany) . This mucosal incision was made after submucosal instillation of saline along the right anterolateral esophageal wall. The endoscope was then inserted into the submucosa at the site of incision and a submucosal tunnel was created from the incision till 1 cm beyond GE Junction. Spray coagulation mode was used to dissect the submucosa. Continuous infiltration of a solution made of 100ml saline mixed with indigocarmine and 1 ml adrenaline was done to separate the mucosa and to detect any small mucosal tear. A coagulating forceps (FD-410LR Coagrasper; Olympus) was used for hemostasis as needed. The time required for creating the tunnel was 53 mins. The GE junction was identified by palisade vascular pattern and ...

This pilot trial demonstrated the feasibility of conducting a foot-massage intervention for staff working in LTC facilities. In terms of recruitment, although the facility was considered to be of an average size (105 beds), and the recruitment focused only on day shift staff, an adequate number of staff were willing to be involved and, thus, our estimation of the number we could recruit from one facility was accurate. Recruitment was hampered only by the trial being undertaken in the pre-holiday period when there was a large number of staff on leave. Challenges to the research design included the environmental limitations, and this demonstrates the importance of undertaking a relaxation intervention in a room where participants felt comfortable. Outcome measures were not problematic for participants to complete, however, the project manager had to remind participants to complete and return to the locked box.. Whilst the generalizability of the studys findings are hindered by the sample size and ...
