PURPOSE: Falls are a major safety issue in rehabilitation settings. Patients receive mixed messages-try to be as independent as possible, but don't do anything in your room without calling for assistance. Despite the use of multiple falls interventions at this facility, the fall rate remained high. To impact this rate, the facility implemented a video monitoring system. This system allows for patients at risk for falling to be monitored from a remote location. The monitor technician is able to speak to the patient directly and/or contact staff members to respond to the room, preventing a fall...

PURPOSE: This study examined the effectiveness of the consensus model (Clinical Advisory Board for Intermittent Catheterization [CABIC] method) for teaching clean intermittent self-catheterization (ISC). The primary hypothesis was that the CABIC method of teaching ISC would result in higher ISC knowledge and performance scores. DESIGN: Prospective, non-randomized, pre-post study of an educational intervention of ISC education with nursing students. METHODS: Nursing students completed a self-report pre/posttest, education of the CABIC method, and video recording of the CABIC method using same-gendered manikins...

PURPOSE: One of the most important aspects in neuromotor rehabilitation is the need of feedback for patients. The rehabilitation system's efficiency relies on the therapist's judgment, who tells the patient whether he/she is performing the exercises correctly. This process may be quite subjective, because it depends on the therapist's personal opinion. On the other hand, recent studies have shown that vibrotactile biofeedback can improve the effectiveness of interaction as it is a very helpful tool in the physiological process of neuromotor rehabilitation...

PURPOSE: The use of animals in various healthcare settings dates as far back as the 19th century, and is still a widely practiced intervention even today. The use of animals in the acute rehabilitation setting is a common practice that benefits both the patient's therapy progression and allows the opportunity for financial reimbursement for the facility. As acute rehabilitation facilities continue to cope with ever changing rules and guidelines, the use of alternate modalities can help the facility overcome difficult challenges while focusing on the needs of the patients...

PURPOSE: Adherence to treatment protocols to manage fever, hyperglycemia, and dysphagia is associated with reduced levels of mortality and morbidity in acute stroke patients. However, the extent of research translation in this area is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is an evidence-practice gap in the management of fever, hyperglycemia, and dysphagia in an acute stroke unit. DESIGN: Medical records were audited to determine whether clinical practice was consistent with best practice, as defined by treatment protocols used within the Quality in Acute Stroke Care study...
