This investigation had three objectives: to assess the current security of Washington State EDs; to estimate the prevalence of and response to threats and violence in Washington State EDs; and to appraise the Washington State ED security capability to respond to acute influxes of patients, bystanders, and media during acute surge events...

BACKGROUND: The 2011 Surgeon General's Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding highlights a need for optimizing lactation-based education for all health professionals; however, few schools of nursing and medicine offer lactation-based curriculum. In an effort to address these gaps in education and care, the director of the lactation program at a large urban children's hospital developed and instituted the annual regional Human Milk Assembly (HMA), a half-day collaborative meeting of the hospital's regional and referral hospitals' neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nursing staff, to address lactation-based educational and training needs of all participating institutions...

BACKGROUND: Currently available tools for the management of safety in health care are largely based on quantitative management information. Executive WalkRounds (WalkRounds [WR]) seems useful as a leadership tool to detect "soft signals"-alerts of unsafe situations or practices-and to enhance the mutual trust between frontline staff and the board of directors. The majority of the research on WR has been performed in hospitals. Therefore, a study was conducted to assess how the boards of directors of long term care organizations value WR as a leadership tool to perceive soft signals, and whether soft signals are of added value to enhance patient safety...

Parenteral nutrition (PN) represents one of the most notable achievements of modern medicine, serving as a therapeutic modality for all age groups across the healthcare continuum. PN offers a life-sustaining option when intestinal failure prevents adequate oral or enteral nutrition. However, providing nutrients by vein is an expensive form of nutrition support, and serious adverse events can occur. In an effort to provide clinical guidance regarding PN therapy, the Board of Directors of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) convened a task force to develop consensus recommendations regarding appropriate PN use...

METHOD: Standardised written survey by nursing directors of all 32 German university hospitals and medical universities in 2015...
