The purpose of this study was to gain a greater understanding of gun violence from the victim's personal story. The design for the study was narrative inquiry. Sixteen victims of gun violence were interviewed and asked to tell their story. The interview format comprised open-ended interview questions that encouraged participants to tell their stories. The method was narrative inquiry; the victims were encouraged to tell their story. The interview was recorded and transcribed. The transcripts of the interviews were the data for the study...

The importance of reflection and reflective practice is repeatedly reported in trauma literature, with the process of reflective practice being noted as invaluable for clinicians working within trauma settings. Although the literature on medical primary response trauma teams has reported clinicians' management of clinical roles and additional stressors, the practical applications and benefits of reflective practice insofar have not been identified in relation to complex trauma within multidisciplinary mental health services...

Complications from catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) can cause morbidity and mortality. Our institution's Trauma Quality and Improvement Program analysis identified CAUTIs as an outlier complication in our trauma population. This study aimed to determine whether implemented measures would reduce CAUTI rates in trauma population. A 5-S CAUTI bundle was implemented. Its effects were measured on a prospectively collected dataset of adult trauma patients using our Trauma Registry during the 4-year study period...

Effective treatment of acute pain during hospitalization following lower extremity fracture is critical to improve short-term patient outcomes including wound healing, stress response, hospital length of stay, and cost as well as minimizing long-term negative patient outcomes such as delayed return to work, disability, and chronic pain. As many patients report moderate to severe pain during hospitalization, identifying the analgesics that most effectively reduces pain is a priority to improve patient outcomes...

Susan Fowler, Stephanie Urban, Holly Taggart
The objective of this retrospective study was to gain a better understanding of patient and care factors that may contribute to urinary retention in critically ill trauma patients. Fifty trauma patients over a 1-year period with an International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) code for urinary retention were identified and analyzed. Most patients had an indwelling urinary catheter placed on admission, and it was reinserted in 39 patients. Male gender, orthopedic trauma, and anesthesia were possible contributing factors for urinary retention in our sample population...

Delirium is a frequent complication of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions, manifesting as acute confusion with inattention and disordered thinking. Patients in the ICU who develop acute delirium are more likely to experience long-term disability and mortality. The Society of Critical Care Medicine published guidelines for the management of pain, agitation, and delirium (PAD) in the ICU in 2013. Based on these PAD guidelines, the ABCDEF bundle was created. Research is lacking on how adherence to the ABCDEF bundle elements impacts specific populations such as trauma patients...

Determining differences in clinical outcomes of older adults treated at trauma centers (TCs) and nontrauma centers (NTCs) is imperative considering their persistent undertriage and the projected costs of fixing the problem. This study compared the incidence and predictors of complications and mortality among brain-injured older adults treated at TCs and NTCs. This secondary analysis of New York inpatient data included patients aged 55+ years, primary brain injury diagnosis, and acute care hospital admission...

Jeremy Lund, Kathryn Samai
Although carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning presents infrequently, it is a consequential and serious component of burn-related injuries, especially those injured via structure fire. A multitude of retrospective reviews and prospective trials have attempted to establish evidence demonstrating the ideal modality for oxygen administration in CO-poisoned patients; however, a consensus recommendation has not been reached. Given that half of fire-related patients succumb to CO poisoning, this is an imperative area of research...

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...
