BACKGROUND: Cohabitation, referring to a co-residential romantic relationship between two intimate partners without a marriage license, has become widely accepted in contemporary societies. It has been found that cohabitating women have a higher risk of experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) than married women. However, as yet, no studies have investigated the level and pattern of IPV-associated physical injuries and its mental health impact on cohabitating women. Therefore, we aim to compare IPV-associated physical injuries between cohabitating and married women by conducting a review of 5-year medical records from the emergency departments of two major public hospitals in Hong Kong...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes is a common chronic condition among adults that can complicate the transition from the hospital to the community. Hospital readmission is an important contributor to total medical expenditures and is an emerging indicator of quality of care. Failure to acknowledge diabetes transition of care is associated with increased emergency department visits and 30-day readmissions. METHODS: Literature review of transition of care models, sample tools and processes are presented...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have assessed regional variation in the organisation of stroke services, particularly health care resourcing, presence of protocols and discharge planning. Our aim was to compare stroke care organisation within middle- (MIC) and high-income country (HIC) hospitals participating in the Head Position in Stroke Trial (HeadPoST). METHODS: HeadPoST is an on-going international multicenter crossover cluster-randomized trial of 'sitting-up' versus 'lying-flat' head positioning in acute stroke...

Hospital discharge is often poorly standardized and is characterized by discontinuity and fragmentation of care, putting patients at high risk of post-discharge adverse events and early readmission. The present ANMCO position paper reviews the modifiable components of the hospital discharge process related to adverse events or rehospitalizations and suggests the optimal methods for redesign the whole discharge process. The key principles for proper hospital discharge or transfer of care acknowledge that hospital discharge:- is not an isolated event, but a process that has to be planned immediately after admission, ensuring that the patient and the caregiver understand and contribute to the planned decisions as equal partners;- is facilitated by a comprehensive systemic approach that begins with a multidimensional evaluation process;- must be organized by an operator who is responsible for the coordination of all phases of the hospital patient pathway, involving afterwards the physician and transferring to them the information and responsibility;- is the result of an integrated multidisciplinary team approach;- uses appropriately the transitional and intermediate care services;- is carried out in an organized system of care and continuum of services;- programs the passage of information to after-discharge services...

BACKGROUND: Reducing readmissions following hospitalization is a national priority. Identifying patients at high risk for readmission after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) early in a hospitalization would enable hospitals to enhance discharge planning. METHODS: We developed different models to predict 30-day inpatient readmission to our institution in patients who underwent CABG between January 2010 and April 2013. These models used data available: 1) at admission, 2) at discharge 3) from STS Registry data...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and implement an algorithm for the management of headaches presenting to the emergency department (ED) in order to decrease the frequency of opioid and barbiturate treatment both acutely as well as on discharge. BACKGROUND: Headache is the fifth leading cause of ED visits in the United States. In the case of primary headache, particularly migraine, treatment in the ED can be highly variable. Patients with migraine continue to be treated with opioids more commonly than nonopioid, migraine specific medications...

This article discusses the potential for shared mental models to improve teamwork during discharge planning and follow-up care. A 58-year-old inpatient on the hematology care unit of an academic medical center was discharged to his community after initial treatment of acute myeloid leukemia, without a clear plan for either discharge or follow-up. This case highlights the challenges faced by the primary oncology care team, the patient's community health-care team, the patient, and his caregiver, because a formal plan for follow-up care after discharge was not in place...

This article provides an overview of a project undertaken by the Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI) and funded by The Department of Health, to identify the barriers and challenges that prevent effective discharge from hospital to home. Unnecessary delays in discharging patients from hospital to home is an ongoing problem and for older people this can lead to worse health outcomes, which can increase their long-term care needs. Findings from the project illustrates that while there are challenges in achieving excellent practice in the transfer of a patient's care from hospital to home, there is a significant willingness and commitment from nurses based both in the community and hospital to improve the patient experience...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes ketoacidosis (DKA) is a common presentation and complication of type 1 diabetes (T1D). While intravenous insulin is typically used to treat acute metabolic abnormalities, the transition from intravenous to subcutaneous treatment can present a challenge. We hypothesize that co-administration of glargine, a subcutaneous long-acting insulin analog, during insulin infusion may facilitate a flexible and safe transition from intravenous to subcutaneous therapy. OBJECTIVE: To determine if the practice of administering subcutaneous glargine during intravenous insulin is associated with an increased risk of hypoglycemia, hypokalemia, or other complications in children with DKA...
