The aim of this study was to compare the satisfaction and success of treatment for pain patients who were interdisciplinary (anaesthesiological, psychosomatic, neurological, orthopedic) treated or underwent neurological care alone. Methods We selected 183 patients who were treated in our neurological clinic and in our interdisciplinary pain management center (IST). Of these, 142 patients having polyneuropathy, headache or muskuloskelettal pain were included in the final analysis. 39 patients (27.5 %) were treated in the IST and 103 patients were treated exclusively by a neurologist...

Prepectoral breast reconstruction has emerged as an excellent technique for postmastectomy reconstruction, as it allows for full preservation of a patient's pectoralis major muscle and chest wall function. This reduces pain, eliminates animation deformity, and results in high patient satisfaction. Safely performed prepectoral breast reconstruction requires a careful patient selection process before committing to the procedure, taking into account comorbidities, radiation status, and oncologic criteria such as tumor location and breast cancer stage...

OBJECTIVES: Both, patient satisfaction and hospital safety culture have been recognized as key characteristics of healthcare quality and patient safety. Thus, both characteristics are measured widely to support quality and safety improvement efforts. However, because safety culture surveys focus exclusively on the perspective of hospital staff, the complimentary information to be gained from patients' perceptions of safety culture has received little research attention so far. We aimed to develop a measure explicitly focusing on patients' perceptions of safety culture in the hospital setting and perform an initial evaluation of its measurement properties...

The hospital activity of physicians in training mainly consists in direct contacts with patients, tasks indirectly linked to patients such as administration, as well as clinical and theoretical training. In our era of digitalization, an important administrative work load without any added medical value fills their daily chores. In parallel activities of medical secretaries are getting more partitioned, with their desks situated far from physicians' and tasks often limited to finalizing discharge letters. Added to multiple overtime, this reduces physicians' and secretaries' work satisfaction...

In a context of growing demand for home-based direct care services, the need to retain direct care workers (DCWs) is clear. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act, and state-level changes in Medicaid support for home-based care together have affected agencies that hire DCWs, with implications for an issue that affects worker satisfaction: scheduling. Many home-based aides employed by agencies cannot count on consistent or sufficient hours. Hours shortfall and instability have been recognized as important issues for retail and restaurant workers, but focused on less for care aides...

Background: Failure rates of up to 20% have been reported after fasciotomy for chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS). There is some evidence that postoperative failure and complication rates are higher in the posterior compartments of the lower leg than the anterolateral compartments. Isolated compartment surgery may put patients at risk of requiring revision surgery because of the risk of developing posterior compartment disease. Hypothesis: Isolated anterolateral fasciotomy for CECS, in the absence of posterior compartment symptoms, produces satisfactory functional outcomes...

The birth plan was developed as a way for pregnant women to communicate their desires and expectations for labor and delivery. Standardized birth plans have been used by some birth facilities as a communication tool. In this quality improvement project, we sought to describe communication, trust, and satisfaction scores after delivery in a group of patients who used a standardized birth plan. All pregnant women at 24 or more weeks of gestation were asked to complete a short, standardized birth plan. Communication, trust, and satisfaction were assessed before and after delivery...
