I was unable to find an ophthalmologist on call at any of our state's trauma centers: Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, or Maine Medical Center in Portland. I also could not find one available at MaineGeneral in Augusta. As a result, the child had to be taken four hours by ambulance to Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston.. Maine Medical Center touts itself as a Level One trauma center, a prestigious designation applied for and conferred by the American College of Surgeons. Having worked at MMC, and having sent many patients there, I have had excellent experience as a provider in helping trauma patients access care at that institution. Their doctors and nurses are world class.. A Level One trauma center is supposed to have an ophthalmologist available 24/7, as outlined in the American College of Surgeons' "Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient" guidelines. Yet this is not the case, and it is hurting patients from our state.. Ironically, ...
Some inspectors general, the heads of the offices, are appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate.[10] For example, both the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Labor and the inspector general of the U.S. Agency for International Development are presidentially appointed. The remaining inspectors general are designated by their respective agency heads,[11] such as the U.S. Postal Service inspector general.[12] Presidentially appointed IGs can only be removed, or terminated, from their positions by the President of the United States, whereas designated inspectors general can be terminated by the agency head.[13] However, in both cases Congress must be notified of the termination, removal, or reassignment. While the IG Act of 1978 requires that inspectors general be selected based upon their qualifications and not political affiliation, presidentially appointed inspectors general are considered political appointees and are often selected, if only in part and in addition to their ...
We have developed a PCR-assay for the diagnosis of juvenile oyster disease (JOD) based on the detection of Roseovarius crassostreae directly from affected oysters. Species-specific primers are used to amplify the 16S-23S rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of R. crassostreae, and confirmation of product identity is accomplished by restriction enzyme analysis. No false positives were obtained with either closely related bacterial species or from other DNAs present in oyster samples. The assay has the potential to detect as few as 10 cells of R. crassostreae per oyster when samples are taken from the inner valve surfaces of the animal. Inclusion of material from soft body surfaces is not necessary, and may reduce sensitivity approximately 10-fold. In a JOD-affected population, a positive PCR result was obtained from all oysters from which these bacteria were subsequently cultured. The assay also detected the presence of R. crassostreae in 2 oysters from which no...

Edited by Dr. Miguel Ángel Royo-Bordonada. This thematic series on public health ethics follows a previous Public Health Reviews issue on the topic of public health ethics training in the European region, to emphasize the neglect and the importance of the topic for public health education in Europe. The current issue evolved from a Working Group of the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) which was mandated to develop public health ethics curriculum materials for European schools of public health, as well as for practitioners and policy makers. Training of public health professionals in this field is essential to ensure confidence, credibility and public trust, when addressing the wide range of ethical conflicts that arise frequently in public health policy and practice.. Publication charges for this collection were funded by ASPHER. Articles have undergone the journal's standard peer-review process overseen by the Guest Editor, who declares no competing ...
Intent: We will describe a partnership between three universities, two in Norway and one in Canada, in order to illustrate how the integration of occupational science and public health perspectives on diverse health determinants contributed to interdisciplinary graduate education through a collaborative international exchange. Two specific initiatives will be addressed: the development of integrated occupational science and public health curriculum materials, and the participation of students from each country in courses at the institutions overseas. Argument: The conditions of everyday life and the occupations these conditions enable are well recognized as key determinants of health and well-being within occupational science, occupational therapy and public health. Within occupational science in particular, there is growing recognition that full realization of the vision of health promotion through occupation requires expanding beyond individual-level approaches in order to address socio-political

West Nile virus (WNV) is a vector-borne illness that can severely affect human health. After introduction on the East Coast in 1999, the virus quickly spread and became established across the continental United States. However, there have been significant variations in levels of human WNV incidence spatially and temporally. In order to quantify these variations, we used Kulldorff's spatial scan statistic and Anselin's Local Moran's I statistic to uncover spatial clustering of human WNV incidence at the county level in the continental United States from 2002-2008. These two methods were applied with varying analysis thresholds in order to evaluate sensitivity of clusters identified. The spatial scan and Local Moran's I statistics revealed several consistent, important clusters or hot-spots with significant year-to-year variation. In 2002, before the pathogen had spread throughout the country, there were significant regional clusters in the upper Midwest and in Louisiana and Mississippi. The largest and

Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called the NEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as a stratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States and its territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. The sample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, and small ...

PREVENTION OF DENTAL CARIES THROUGH THE EFFECTIVE USE OF FLUORIDE - THE PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACH. Background: The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes that dental caries is a severe public health problem across the world. The current global and regional patterns of dental caries reflect distinct risk profiles of countries which relate to the structure of the society, living conditions, lifestyles, and the existence of preventive oral health programmes. Research conducted in high income countries documents that systematic use of fluoride reduces the burden of dental caries; such research is scarce in low and middle income countries.. Objectives: This article reviews the evidence on effective use of fluoride, highlights the public health approach to fluoridation, and clarifies how automatic fluoridation contributes to breaking social inequities in dental caries.. Data collection: Scientific publications on fluoride administration stored in PubMed/Medline and caries data from the WHO ...

Purpose The aim of the study was to investigate sickness absence due to mental disorders in human service occupations. Methods Participants (n = 1,466,100) were randomly selected from two consecutive national 9-year cohorts from the Statistics Finland population database; each cohort represented a 33% sample of the Finnish population aged 25-54 years. These data were linked to diagnosis-specific records on receipt of sickness allowance, drawn from a national register maintained by the Social Insurance Institution of Finland, using personal identification numbers. Results Sociodemographic-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for sickness absence due to mental disorders in all human service occupations combined were 1.76 for men (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.70-1.84) and 1.36 for women (95% CI, 1.34-1.38) compared with men and women in all other occupations, respectively. Of the 15 specific human service occupations, compared with occupations from the same skill/education level without a significant

CLIFFORD, J. [¶1] Rosemary Fecteau, widow of Jack Fecteau, appeals from the judgment entered in the Superior Court (Kennebec County, Calkins, J.) affirming the State Employee Health Commission's determination that costs incurred for the removal of her late husband's amalgam fillings were not covered by his employee insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Maine (Blue Cross). Fecteau contends that the commission erred in its determination that coverage did not exist for the removal of the fillings. We affirm the judgment. [¶2] Jack Fecteau was employed by the Maine Department of Human Services and participated in the State Employees Health Insurance Program. Pursuant to 5 M.R.S.A. § 285 (1989 & Supp. 1996), Blue Cross contracted with the Commission to provide group medical coverage to State employees. Jack was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease. In 1994, he was advised by Dietrich K. Klinghardt, M.D., that a contributing cause of his disease was an allergic response to mercury in his ...
As the nineteenth century drew to a close, the needs of hospitals prompted the establishment of training schools for nurses and the germination of the concept of professional nursing. The first such training school in New Hampshire was opened at the New Hampshire State Hospital in 1888.. As a result of these developments, nurses began to organize themselves for the improvement of patient care. The forerunner of the American Nurses Association was formed in 1896 and that of the National League for Nursing in 1893.. In New Hampshire, nurses who had graduated from the state's training school programs were also feeling the need to organize, and in April 1906 fifty of them met in Concord to discuss the establishment of a permanent association. A month later, on May 28, 1906, at a second meeting held at the state hospital, the Graduate Nurses Association of New Hampshire was formed. It changed its name to the New Hampshire State Nurses Association in the 1940s. (For more information, see A Brief ...

HealthPoint Family Care operates 21 school-based health centers in Northern and Central Kentucky in five districts. In 2019, the school-based centers served 2,339 children for medical services and 1,609 for dental services.. School-based health centers in Kentucky are also now more sustainable, thanks to a 2019 change in the state's Medicaid regulations which expanded coverage for school-based services.. It's important to note that school-based health centers aren't just for students. Centers can be built in a way to allow school employees, families, and others to use them, too. The centers can serve as a health hub for the whole community. School-based health centers can offer communities an added resource for health care. When students can be treated without leaving school, they can quickly return to the classroom to continue learning, and parents don't need to take time off work or arrange transportation to doctor's appointments.. In short, school-based health centers can improve access to ...

Bluefin tunas are highly prized pelagic fish species representing a significant economic resource to fisheries throughout the world. Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) populations have significantly declined due to overexploitation. As a consequence of their value and population decline, T. thynnus has been the focus of considerable research effort concerning many aspects of their life history. However, in-depth understanding of T. thynnus reproductive biology is still lacking. Knowledge of reproductive physiology is a very important tool for determining effective fisheries and aquaculture management. Transcriptome techniques are proving powerful and provide novel insights into physiological processes. Construction of a microarray from T. thynnus ESTs sourced from reproductive tissues has provided an ideal platform to study the reproductive physiology of bluefin tunas. The aim of this investigation was to compare transcription profiles from the ovaries and testes of mature T. thynnus to establish

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates criminal activity for HHS. The special agents who work for OIG have the same title series "1811", training and authority as other federal criminal investigators, such as the FBI, ATF, DEA and Secret Service. However, OIG Special Agents have special skills in investigating white collar crime related to Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse. Organized crime has dominated the criminal activity relative to this type of fraud. HHS-OIG investigates tens of millions of dollars in Medicare fraud each year. In addition, OIG will continue its coverage of all 50 states and the District of Columbia by its multi-agency task forces (PSOC Task Forces) that identify, investigate, and prosecute individuals who willfully avoid payment of their child support obligations under the Child Support Recovery Act. HHS-OIG agents also provide protective services to the Secretary of HHS, and other department executives as necessary. In 2002, the department released ...
Q. Whom does the Home Care Association of New Hampshire represent? A. Our membership is licensed providers of home health services in New Hampshire. Most people identify us by the Visiting Nurse Association agencies. That is a large portion of our membership. But we also represent proprietary home health services. Basically, the requirement to be a member of our association is that you must licensed by the state of New Hampshire to deliver home health services. Q. There's a pretty broad range of services under the aegis of home health care, isn't there? A. Yes. I think the public is hearing a lot about home health care as an alternative to nursing home care or long-term, chronic care. It ranges from skilled nursing, therapies, acute care kinds of services in the home to long-term or chronic care and supportive services that includes home health aides, homemaker services and companionship services. In New Hampshire, most hospice services are also provided in the home by the VNA. The majority of ...

Deer tick virus is a virus causing tick-borne encephalitis. Deer tick virus is a flavivirus closely resembling Powassan virus (to which it has 94% amino acid sequence identity). Because they are so related, deer tick virus is thought to be a genotype of Powassan virus, and also called Powassan virus lineage II. In 1997, it was isolated from Ixodes scapularis (the deer tick, formerly Ixodes dammini) collected in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Abstract The Surgeon General called dental caries the silent epidemic, suffered disproportionately by the poor. Homeless mothers/children are especially vulnerable as they lack access to dental care. This prospective study elucidated predictors of access, oral health, and the effectiveness of shelter-based care. A convenience sample of 120 homeless families (children n=236) provided predictor factors at intake and one month later. Nearly half the children (n=98) had dental caries. Ten independent variables explained 33% of the variance of access barriers; the most influential were mental health (B=-.426), oral health beliefs (B=.243), and victimization (B=.185). Ten independent variables explained 24.3% of the variance of oral health: mother's age (B5.351), number of children at the shelter (B=.337), and race (B=.154) had the most influence. Shelter-based care was effective in improving access: 43% of families secured dental appointments and perceived access barriers decreased after ...

Examines and compares the health status and health service utilization of women and men in a provincial correctional jail in Atlantic Canada. Finds that prisoners experienced a number of physical and mental health issues and a large proportion used health services during incarceration. The quality and accessibility of health services played a significant role in how participants viewed health care in jail. Sex and gender are shown to influence the health status and use of health services among provincial prisoners. Females report more heath issues and poorer overall health, as well as more difficulties accessing health services during incarceration than male prisoners. Race also plays a role in health status and health service utilization. Aboriginal prisoners rate their overall physical and mental health poorer than non-Aboriginals. They also report a greater need for health services, but use them less than non-Aboriginal prisoners.. ...
The One Health Center of Excellence for Research and Training in UF's Emerging Pathogens Institute, in collaboration with U.S. and Mongolian institutions, has identified the first known case of an equine influenza virus in camels. Their findings will be published in the December issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases.. "Over the last 10 years, we've been amazed at all the cross-species jumps of influenza. Now we're finding yet another," says Gregory C. Gray, center director and environmental and global health professor in UF's College of Public Health and Health Professions.. Although there is no immediate risk, the inter-mammalian transmission of the virus is a major concern for public health researchers interested in controlling the threat of pandemic influenza, he says.. Camels have recently been implicated in the transfer of the deadly Middle East respiratory syndrome virus to man. This new discovery further demonstrates the potential role of camels in the ecology of zoonotic diseases, which ...

Bangor (Maine) Daily News, Sept. 3, 2013. AUGUSTA, Maine - Activists assembled at the State House on Tuesday to kick off an eight-state tour of the Northeast in support of health care reform.. The group, called Drive for Universal Healthcare, or "DUH," bills itself as a "rolling demonstration" of activists in their vehicles, visiting states with pending legislation that would expand health care coverage by instituting some version of single-payer health care.. In Maine, that's LD 1345, sponsored by Rep. Charlie Priest, D-Brunswick. His bill would transition the state slowly toward a state-run insurance system similar to those established in Canada and much of Europe.. Priest has introduced similar bills in previous legislatures. This time, he said he took his cues from Vermont, which in 2011 approved a law to slowly establish a single-payer system, and is working today toward implementing the law by 2017.. He said single-payer - which proponents say would drastically reduce the cost of health ...
The story below is about the interim final rules issued in February 2010.. Federal agencies have issued long-awaited regulations on providing parity for employees enrolled in group health plans who need treatment for mental health or substance use disorders. The interim final rules were issued by the Treasury Department, the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and published in the Feb. 2, 2010, issue of the Federal Register. The rules apply to plan years starting after June 30, 2010. The new rules implement the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA), enacted in October 2008 and effective as of Jan. 1, 2010, for calendar-year plans. MHPAEA prohibits group health insurance plans-typically offered by employers-from restricting access to care by limiting benefits and requiring higher patient costs than those that apply to general medical or surgical benefits. MHPAEA applies to employers with 50 ...
