Peng Wang, Xue Jiang, Jun Hu, Jijun Zhao
Continuous miniaturization of magnetic units in spintronics devices inspires efforts to search for novel 2D magnetic materials with giant magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE). Through systematic first-principles calculations, large MAE of 24 meV in W or Re embedded 2D polyporphyrin frameworks is found. Interestingly, the MAE can be enhanced up to 60 meV, through replacing the hydrogen atoms on the edges of the Re based 2D polyporphyrin framework by hydroxyl and amino radicals. Analysis of the electronic structures reveals that the enhancement of MAE is mainly attributed to charge redistributions and energy shifts of Re 5d orbitals induced by the functional radicals...

BACKGROUND: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reimbursement is now contingent on quality measures such as patient satisfaction as determined by Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS). In providing patient-centered care that is guided by patient satisfaction measures, it is critical to understand system-level factors that may influence how patients assess their care experiences. One important system-level influence to consider is hospital size...

The metal-insulator transition (MIT) remains among the most thoroughly studied phenomena in solid state physics, but the complexity of the phenomena, which usually involves cooperation of many degrees of freedom including orbitals, fluctuating local moments, magnetism, and the crystal structure, have resisted predictive ab-initio treatment. Here we develop ab-initio theoretical method for correlated electron materials, based on Dynamical Mean Field Theory, which can predict the change of the crystal structure across the MIT at finite temperature...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the cognitive, behavioral, and environmental factors that facilitate publication by clinical nurses in Magnet® hospitals. BACKGROUND: The culture promoted by the Magnet Recognition Program® promotes nurses practicing in those settings to use, generate, and disseminate best practices. Successful and promising models of care and nursing practice are rarely disseminated beyond the organization where they are practiced. The questions persist: what barriers to writing for publication exist for clinical nurses, and how do we overcome them to advance emergent evidence? METHODS: A focused ethnographic, multiple-case study design examined 5 well-published nurses with high levels of dissemination occurring outside the Magnet organization where they were employed...

[Co(NCS)2(py)2]n (py = pyridine) is composed of ferromagnetic chains of Co(ii) cations connected by double NCS bridges. The chains are irregular because of two crystallographically inequivalent Co(ii) cations. The coordination polyhedron of the Co(ii) cations is a distorted octahedron built from two N and two S atoms of four equatorial NCS anions and two apical N atoms of the pyridine ligands. Magnetic and specific heat studies show that the compound undergoes a phase transition at 3.7 K to a ferromagnetic state...

It is well-established that hospitals recognized for good nursing care - Magnet hospitals - are associated with better patient outcomes. Less is known about how Magnet hospitals compare to non-Magnets on quality measures linked to Medicare reimbursement. The purpose of this study was to determine how Magnet hospitals perform compared to matched non-Magnet hospitals on Hospital Value Based Purchasing (VBP) measures. A cross-sectional analysis of three linked data sources was performed. The sample included 3,021 non-federal acute care hospitals participating in the VBP program (323 Magnets; 2,698 non-Magnets)...

OBJECTIVE: Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) pose a challenge to patient safety. Although studies have explored individual level, few have focused on organizational factors such as a hospital's safety infrastructure (indicated by Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score) or workplace quality (Magnet recognition). The aim of the study was to determine whether Magnet and hospitals with better Leapfrog Hospital Safety Scores have fewer HAIs. METHODS: Ordered probit regression analyses tested associations between Safety Score, Magnet status, and standardized infection ratios, depicting whether a hospital had a Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream infection standardized infection ratio that was "better," "no different," or "worse" than a National Benchmark as per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Healthcare Safety Network definitions...
