REVIEW
Sowdhamini S Wallace, Michelle A Lopez, A Chantal Caviness
CONTEXT: Enterovirus infection commonly causes fever in infants aged 0 to 90 days and, without testing, is difficult to differentiate from serious bacterial infection. OBJECTIVE: To determine the cost savings of routine enterovirus testing and identify subgroups of infants with greater potential impact from testing among infants 0 to 90 days old with fever. DATA SOURCES: Studies were identified systematically from published and unpublished literature by using Embase, Medline, the Cochrane database, and conference proceedings...

OBJECTIVE: The study goal was to determine whether preferred language for care and insurance type are associated with cost among hospitalized children. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted of inpatients at a freestanding children's hospital from January 2011 to December 2012. Patient information and hospital costs were obtained from administrative data. Cost differences according to language and insurance were calculated using multivariate generalized linear model estimates, allowing for language/insurance interaction effects...

OBJECTIVE: According to disclosure guidelines, patients experiencing adverse events due to medical errors should be offered full disclosure, whereas disclosure of near misses is not traditionally expected. This may conflict with parental expectations; surveys reveal most parents expect full disclosure whether errors resulted in harm or not. Protocols regarding whether to include children in these discussions have not been established. This study explores parent preferences around disclosure and views on including children...

OBJECTIVES: Identify hospital-level care variations and association with length of stay (LOS) and hospital revisit in children with tracheostomies hospitalized for bacterial respiratory tract infections (bRTIs). METHODS: A multicenter, retrospective cohort study that used the Pediatric Health Information System database between 2007 and 2014 of patients with tracheostomies aged ≤18 years with a primary diagnosis of bRTI (eg, tracheitis) or a primary diagnosis of a bRTI symptom (eg, cough) and a secondary diagnosis of bRTI...

OBJECTIVE: Health care disparities have been described for children of limited English-proficient (LEP) families compared with children of English-proficient (EP) families. Poor communication with the medical team may contribute to these worse health outcomes. Previous studies exploring communication in the PICU have excluded LEP families. We aimed to understand communication experiences and preferences in the 3 primary communication settings in the PICU. We also explored LEP families' views on interpreter use in the PICU...

OBJECTIVES: Local pediatric screening guidelines for venous thromboembolism (VTE) are developed from incomplete pediatric data and extrapolated from adult data in which immobility is a major risk factor. We hypothesized that screening guidelines centered on immobility are inadequate for identifying children at risk of central venous catheter (CVC)-associated VTE. METHODS: This retrospective case-control (4:1) study at an academic, quaternary-level, free-standing children's hospital applied screening guidelines for VTE risk to all cases of VTE from July 2012 to April 2014...

BACKGROUND: Asthma exacerbations are a leading cause of hospitalization among children. Despite the existence of national pediatric asthma guidelines, significant variation in care persists. At Duke Children's Hospital, we determined that our average length of stay (ALOS) and cost for pediatric asthma admissions exceeded that of our peers. Our aim was to reduce the ALOS of pediatric patients hospitalized with asthma from 2.9 days to 2.6 days within 12 months by implementing an asthma pathway within our new electronic health record...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between limited English proficiency (LEP) and worse pediatric health outcomes is well documented. OBJECTIVES: To determine the relationship between LEP status and pediatric hospital readmissions. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort analysis of children ≤ 18 years old admitted to a tertiary children's hospital from 2008 to 2014. The main exposure was LEP status. Independent variables included sex, age, race/ethnicity, insurance, median household income, surgical/medical status, severity of illness (SOI), the presence of a complex chronic condition, and length of stay...

OBJECTIVE: Disease and hospitalization generate stress, which can affect the response to treatment. Humor has been used in many hospitals to decrease stress. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of a humor therapy program on stress levels in pediatric inpatients. METHODS: In the first phase, an intervention and a control group were studied over 2 consecutive 3-month periods; the interventions were performed by a team of artists trained in humor therapy...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Medical errors are a leading cause of death in the United States. Effective communication and speaking up are crucial factors in patient safety initiatives. We examined the reasons reported by pediatric residents for not speaking up about safety events when they are observed in practice. We also tested a priori hypotheses of associations between categories of barriers to speaking up with perceptions of safety and teamwork culture. METHODS: Pediatric residents completed an anonymous electronic survey measuring safety and teamwork culture along with an open-ended question asking them to list the top 3 barriers to speaking up about patient safety concerns...

OBJECTIVES: Tube feedings are commonly prescribed to infants with swallowing abnormalities detected by videofluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS), but there are no studies demonstrating efficacy of these interventions to reduce risk of acute respiratory illness (ARI). We sought to measure the association between swallowing interventions and future ARI, among VFSS-tested infants. METHODS: Retrospective cohort of all infants (<12 months) tested with VFSS at a children's hospital between January 1, 2010, and January 1, 2012...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the current study is to describe the demographic and clinical characteristics and health care use of medically hospitalized patients with eating disorders (ED) and somatoform disorders (SFD) in a pediatric setting and to use the findings to explore opportunities for improved care. METHODS: Retrospective chart reviews of 125 patients with SFD and 125 patients with ED (N = 250) seen at a tertiary pediatric facility over a 12- and 19-month period, respectively...
