Pediatric injuries pose a significant problem, both in Turkey and worldwide, because they lead to death or disability in a number of children each year. This quasi-experimental study aimed to identify the effects of the training provided to mothers with children aged 0-6 years about the hazards that lead to pediatric injuries. The population of the research comprised mothers with children aged 0-6 years, living in the city center. Considering the educational and socioeconomic levels of the individuals registered in the family health centers (FHC), the FHCs were divided into 3 groups of high, moderate, and low socioeconomic level...

Blunt traumatic diaphragmatic hernias are most commonly seen in combination with other injuries. Right diaphragmatic ruptures with serious pericardium ruptures are relatively rare. The diagnosis of diaphragmatic hernias is not difficult; however, prior to surgery, it is difficult to judge whether pericardium damage has occurred, particularly on the right side. This injury may occur in a critical pathological state in which cardiac tissue is outside the pericardium due to the pericardial defect. Severe hemodynamic disorders or even death may occur if the patient's condition is not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner...

Although trauma centers are required to provide trauma education to nurses caring for trauma patients, there are no clearly defined standards for this education. In an effort to improve emergency department (ED) trauma nursing care, a tiered approach to ED trauma education (basic, intermediate, and advanced) was developed to provide specialized trauma education to a larger number of ED nurses at a Level II trauma center in Georgia. This tiered approach to ED trauma nurse education has resulted in the ability to quickly activate multiple trauma teams that work together competently and efficiently, leading to improved patient care and development of competent ED trauma nurses...

A Matter of Balance (MOB) is an evidence-based fall prevention program shown to reduce fear of falling (FOF) in English-speaking participants. The effectiveness of translated (Chinese and Spanish) MOB materials in reducing FOF is unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether MOB was associated with reduced FOF in Chinese- and Spanish-speaking participants and included an English-speaking comparison group. Participants were recruited from MOB classes in Massachusetts and Illinois. Investigators used the Falls Efficacy Scale-International (FES-I) and a demographic questionnaire to survey the participants at the first class (baseline), the last class, and 6 months after the MOB course...

Trauma video review allows for monitoring of performance improvement initiatives, leadership skills, system process issues, and guideline compliance. Despite the well-documented benefits, there are persistent barriers to its use including patient privacy concerns, cost, and provider anxiety. Optimizing implementation by ensuring that informed consent processes are in place, as well as a structured peer review process, can help trauma centers overcome these hurdles. Trauma video review is a unique and beneficial tool that helps tie patient care to quantifiable data, as well as serves as a platform for education opportunities...

Although clinical signs for the diagnosis of basilar skull fracture (BSF) are ambiguous, they are widely used to make decisions on initial interventions involving trauma patients. We aimed to assess the performance of early and late (within 48 hr posttrauma) signs for BSF diagnosis and to verify the correlation between the presence of these signs and head injury severity. We conducted a prospectively designed follow-up study at a referral hospital for trauma care in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and performed structured observations for 48 hr post-blunt head injury in patients aged 12 years or older...

Postdischarge phone calls have been shown to improve communications between patients and health care providers, potentially reducing readmission rates, medication errors, and emergency department (ED) visits. Given the complexity of social and medical issues associated with trauma, we studied the utility of an automated phone call system as a method of identifying gaps in trauma care. The Trauma Program and the Health Management and Education Department at a Level 1 academic trauma center engaged in a collaborative quality improvement effort using the CipherHealth LLC platform to provide automated phone calls to trauma patients 2-3 days after discharge...

Trauma has a greater impact on morbidity and mortality than all other disease processes in the pediatric population; yet, there is a gap in the literature related to the scientific basis for educating and researching future practice. The purpose of this research study was to utilize the Delphi technique to identify the current education and research priorities for pediatric trauma nursing as described by the members of the Society of Trauma Nurses. Consensus on the education and research priorities was derived from a sample (n = 25) of trauma nursing experts...

Approximately 18,000 people are trafficked into the United States each year and forced into commercial sex work. Up to 80% of victims are seen by a health care provider. In the health care setting, they rarely identify themselves as victims of human trafficking (HT), making it difficult to recognize them. Only a few health care professionals know how to identify victims of trafficking among their patients. The purpose of this article was to review the process used in health care settings to identify victims of traffickers...

The drivers of trauma disparities are multiple and complex; yet, understanding the causes will direct needed interventions. The aims of this article are to (1) explore how the injured patient, his or her social environment, and the health care system interact to contribute to trauma disparities and examine the evidence in support of interventions and (2) develop a conceptual framework that captures the socioecological context of trauma disparities. Using a scoping review methodology, articles were identified through PubMed and CINAHL between 2000 and 2015...

Over the last decade, trends in fluid resuscitation have changed dramatically as have our practices. Research is driving trauma centers across the globe to initiate modifications in fluid resuscitation of the hemorrhagic trauma patients both in the prehospital and intrahospital arena. This is being done by combining the theory of permissive hypotension and damage control surgery with hemostatic resuscitation as the preferred methods of resuscitation in patients with hemorrhagic shock. The literature illustrates that previous strategies we considered to be beneficial are actually detrimental to the outcomes of these severely injured patients...

We aimed to assess the effect of telenursing on referral rates of patients with head trauma and their family's satisfaction after discharge. Seventy-two patients with head trauma were randomly allocated to equal intervention and control groups. The caregivers in both groups were provided with 1-hr face-to-face training on patients' home care and educational booklets, 2 days before discharge. The cell phone numbers of the telenurse was given to the caregivers of the intervention group. Then, the patients in the intervention group were followed up every week through phone calls by the telenurse for 12 weeks and the patient status checklists were completed...

Frailty screening is a priority in acute care. Using secondary data from our prior study, we derived a 5-item FRAIL Questionnaire (instrument) score for 188 geriatric trauma patients and aimed to examine the influence of preinjury physical frailty (as measured by FRAIL) on 1-year outcomes. The study used a secondary data analysis design. Patients were 65 years and older admitted through the emergency department (ED) between October 2013 and March 2014. The 5 items of the FRAIL instrument were identified within data sources of our prior study, and a preinjury FRAIL score was created for each patient...

Injuries due to trauma are the leading cause of death in Sweden among people younger than 45 years, and more than 120,000 patients were admitted to hospitals in 2014 as a result of trauma. Patients suffering from less serious physical trauma are often discharged directly from the trauma unit, commonly without any follow-up plans. There is a lack of knowledge about how these patients experience their recovery process.Eight women and 6 men were interviewed 3 months after being directly discharged from a trauma unit...

Significant progress has occurred medically for children who have experienced traumatic injuries; however, attention to their psychological adjustment has only more recently been a focus in research and clinical practice. These needs do not cease at discharge but, instead, require monitoring to determine whether further assessment and/or intervention are required. Our team, inclusive of the Psychology Service and the Trauma Service, identified 2 established screening measures (based on age) that were completed by patients during their outpatient follow-up visits postdischarge...

Study design for a quality improvement project. Objective was to implement a geriatric trauma protocol (GTP) based on American College of Surgeons recommendations to improve patient outcomes. Geriatric trauma patients comprise a vulnerable and high-risk trauma population, and must be treated with specific protocols that take into account physiological, psychosocial, environmental, and pharmacological needs. A growing body of research and organizations such as the American College of Surgeons and the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma recommend that a specific trauma protocol for geriatric adults must be utilized in hospitals and trauma centers...
