Vanderbilt orthopedics

N W Sanders, N H Mann, D M Spengler
A new method has been developed for the Department of Orthopaedics of Vanderbilt University Medical Center to access departmental clinical data. Previously this data was stored only in the medical center's mainframe DB2 database, it is now additionally stored in a departmental SQL database. Access to this data is available via any ODBC compliant front-end or a web client. With a small budget and no full time staff, we were able to give our department on-line access to many years worth of patient data that was previously inaccessible...

This study is the retrospective review of an orthopedic surgery training grant (USPHS Training Grant No. AM 05494) at Vanderbilt University that was funded from 1965 through 1969. This training grant was directed toward the production of academic orthopedic surgeons. The director of the training grant, J. William Hillman, MD, was an educator of acute insight who realized the need for highly motivated orthopedic educators. This need is still present. An examination of the rationale of career choices of those who participated in the grant reveals how little has changed over the years...

Development of a workstation-based documentation system supporting collaborative care and nurse charting by exception has been underway for the last two and one-half years at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The Pathways system has undergone two major revisions and is currently implemented on three nursing units. The system supports collaborative care by providing a mechanism for entry and printing of collaborative care pathways and collection of exception data. Paper flowsheets for manual charting are generated based on the patient's collaborative pathway and individual needs...

A review of 251 renal transplants done at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center since October 1962 revealed three patients who had suffered subsequent skeletal injuries sufficient to cause hospitalization. In a 37-year-old woman, a closed fracture of the pelvis healed satisfactorily in the usual period of time. In a 30-year-old man, closed fractures healed well, but there was prolonged delay in the healing of massive open wounds resulting from crushing injuries of the lower extremities. He required prolonged hospitalization, but satisfactory result was achieved after early amputation and close cooperation between orthopedic and renal teams...
