The speciality of the hyperbaric nurse, whether practised in the civil or military setting, has a wide-reaching scope. Two teams of professionals from Lyon and Toulon share their motivations and demonstrate, through the words of two nurses, a real collective passion for this original and highly technical practice.

Current evidence reveals that surgical patients are more prone to adverse events when compared to any other population in the acute care setting. In a military training hospital, handoff communication between surgical intensive care unit (SICU) nurses, physicians, and anesthesia providers (certified registered nurse anesthetists and anesthesiologists) about patients being prepared for surgery was identified as a problem by an initial inquiry of the staff. This article discusses an evidence-based project (EBP) that utilized a standardized multidisciplinary Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation (SBAR) tool to improve communication, teamwork, and the perception of a patient safety culture between the SICU nurses and physicians and the anesthesia providers in preparation for surgery...

BACKGROUND: Strong leaders are essential for nursing program success, yet few faculty are interested or qualified to assume leadership positions within academia. This generates concern over lingering shortages and lack of succession planning. METHOD: A qualitative, descriptive study examined the transition experience of military nurses who became nurse educators. Emerging from an analysis of interviews with 13 Veteran nurses, the subtheme of "using my leadership toolbox" is explored within the context of leadership development...

Events after the sinking of the hospital ship Llandovery Castle on June 27, 1918, by the German submarine U-86 outraged Canadians. Survivors aboard a single life raft gave evidence that many of the 234 souls lost had made it to lifeboats but were rammed and shot by the submarine. Many of those who died were nurses. Three German officers were charged with war crimes after the war. The submarine's captain evaded capture. The remaining two officers' defence that they were following the captain's orders failed and they were convicted...

Between 10% and 40% of hospital-acquired infections have been attributed to cross-contamination of healthcare personnel hands. This study described frequency of hand hygiene within a fixed US military facility in participants wearing a military uniform and hospital-provided scrubs. The median frequency of hand hygiene reported in both uniforms was 10 per hour. However, two-thirds of staff indicated that the military uniform decreased their ability to perform hand hygiene. Stakeholders should re-evaluate policies requiring wear of long-sleeved military uniforms by nursing staff to facilitate hand hygiene...

BACKGROUND: The quality of care provided for patients in mental health-care facilities remains a challenge for health-care providers in general and for nurses in particular. Identifying the level of quality of care provided for patients in mental health-care facilities as perceived by nurses and patients may help health-care providers improve the quality of care and improve patients' outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to assess the perceptions of nurses and patients of the quality of nursing care, and explore the differences in their perceptions of quality of care in mental health-care facilities in Jordan...

In the current international context, emergency medical services have to be prepared for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear events. Emergency response to radiological or nuclear events requires coordination between many components: the fire brigade, emergency medical services (including nurses and physicians), police, hospitals, etc. To optimize efficiency, victim management in France is governed by specific policies and planned responses. This plan for radiological/nuclear event response is inspired by military chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear victim management in the operational theatre and is based on extraction (removal to a safe environment), first triage, decontamination, second triage, treatment, substance identification, and training...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluates the potential for improving patient safety by introducing a metacognitive attention aid that enables clinicians to more easily access and use existing alarm/alert information. It is hypothesized that this introduction will enable clinicians to easily triage alarm/alert events and quickly recognize emergent opportunities to adapt care delivery. The resulting faster response to clinically important alarms/alerts has the potential to prevent adverse events and reduce healthcare costs...

Patient violence in mental health care settings is daunting and stressful, as well as increasingly burdensome for professionals in low/middle income countries, specifically Africa. Patient violence has contributed to increased work hazards for health care professionals and may lead to patients being sedated or restrained, potentially resulting in injury to either the patient or provider. The current study assessed Nigerian psychiatric-mental health nurses' current practices of violence management in a hospital in Southwest Nigeria...

Nearly two million American children belong to a military family. Armed Forces families are located in almost every state and around the globe. Military children are a unique and at times vulnerable population. Military children and adolescents may face significant stressors throughout their lives compared to their civilian counterparts. Military families encounter frequent moves and over half of these children have encountered at least one parental deployment since September 11th, 2001. Civilian health care providers often care for military children and adolescents...

Introduction: Critical care is an important component of in-patient and combat casualty care, and it is a major contributor to U.S. healthcare costs. Regular exposure to critically ill and injured patients may directly contribute to wartime skills retention for military caregivers. Data describing critical care services in the Military Health System (MHS), however, is lacking. This study was undertaken to describe MHS critical care services, their resource utilization, and differences in care practices amongst military treatment facilities (MTFs)...

Soldiers are confronted with physical and mental injuries which constitute a social trauma. The French army has put in place tools, notably sports courses, to favour resilience and the reintegration of casualties. Nurses and nurse assistants working in physical medicine and rehabilitation and psychiatry, play a key role using their skills to support this scheme which runs outside the hospital setting.

BACKGROUND: Military nurses provide care to seriously injured service members in flight, on the ground, or at sea during transport from the point of injury to a facility capable of providing higher levels of care. From this experience nurses are at increased risk of developing negative behavioral health symptoms. Spirituality, a belief in someone or something greater than oneself, could provide behavioral health support for military nurses who serve in this role. OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of spirituality on the behavioral health of nurses who provided en route care while deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan...

Momentum for family planning in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is evident in multiple ways: strong political will, increasing donor support, a growing number of implementing organizations, innovative family planning programming, and a cohesive family planning stakeholder group. Between 2013 and 2017, the modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR) in the capital city of Kinshasa increased from 18.5% to 26.7% among married women, but as of 2013-14, it was only 7.8% at the national level. The National Multisectoral Strategic Plan for Family Planning: 2014-2020 calls for achieving an mCPR of 19...
