BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is a severe complication affecting many hospitalized patients after cardiac surgery, with negative impacts on short- and long-term clinical outcomes and on healthcare costs. Recently, clinical interest has been aimed at defining and classifying AKI, identifying risk factors and developing diagnostic strategies to identify patients at risk early on. Achieving an early and accurate diagnosis of AKI is a crucial issue, because prevention and timely detection may help to prevent negative clinical outcomes and avoid AKI-associated costs...

The study describes adherence to completion of the safe surgery checklist and its respective items by health professionals in a public hospital's surgical center. This was a retrospective document study covering the period from 2010 to 2015. The results show that 58.5% of the checklists were completed out of a total of 24,421 surgeries performed. Checklist adherence was only higher on weekdays in the first year of the study, even though there was a specific professional designated to complete it. There were differences in completion between the surgical times, and in times 1 and 2, there were items that were never used, such as members of the surgical team, patient identification, and place of the surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Research has identified numerous safety risks in perioperative patient handover. In handover from ward to operating room (OR), patients are often transferred by a third person. This adds to the risk of loss of important information and of caregivers in the OR not identifying possible risk factors. The aim of this study was to describe the implementation process and completion rate of a new preoperative, ward-to-OR checklist. Our goal was a 90% fulfillment. METHOD: This study is a prospective, observational study in a Danish University Hospital including all patients undergoing surgery in 2013...

Persons experiencing problems with adaptation following disease, disability, or overwhelming life circumstances are often referred by their physicians to occupational therapists. Given time constraints, therapists may skip administration of a client-centered participation focused assessment and instead use an impairment or limitation focused assessment. This approach assumes that skill remediation will naturally lead to return of participation in valued occupational roles because most participation measures take 30 minutes or longer...
