Mimi Truong, Garth Meckler, Quynh H Doan
BACKGROUND: Return visits to the emergency department (RTED) contribute to overcrowding and may be a quality of care indicator. Previous studies focused on factors predicting returns to and from the same center. Little is known about RTEDs across a range of community and specialty hospitals within a large geographic area. OBJECTIVE: We sought to measure the frequency of pediatric RTEDs and describe their directional pattern across centers in a large catchment area...

: : Background: Nurses developing a poster presentation for the first time who look for guidance in the literature will find many articles offering recommendations on format and style, but these are based on opinion rather than evidence. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify the attributes of a poster that improved the chance that nursing conference attendees would read it. METHODS: A mixed-methods descriptive study employing survey methodology was used to assess the perceptions of nurses attending poster sessions at a two-day nursing conference...

OBJECTIVES: There is growing interest in engaging patients in healthcare research, which raises important questions about the factors that may promote such engagement. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between patient characteristics and three aspects of patient engagement in the medical research process: awareness, interest, and actual participation. METHODS: Cross-sectional, bivariate analyses were employed using the 2014 Health Information National Trends Survey...

BACKGROUND Although the hands of healthcare workers (HCWs) are implicated in most episodes of healthcare-associated infections, the correlation between hand contamination and the likelihood of cross-transmission remains unknown. METHODS We conducted a laboratory-based study involving pairs of HCWs. The hands of a HCW (transmitter) were contaminated with Escherichia coli ATCC 10536 before holding hands with another HCW (host) for 1 minute. Meanwhile, the unheld hand of the transmitter was sampled. Afterward, the host's held hand was also sampled...

BACKGROUND: Clinical trials have shown that trastuzumab, a recombinant monoclonal antibody against HER2 receptor, significantly improves overall survival and disease-free survival in women with HER2-positive early breast cancer, but long-term follow-up data are needed. We report the results of comparing observation with two durations of trastuzumab treatment at a median follow-up of 11 years, for patients enrolled in the HERA (HERceptin Adjuvant) trial. METHODS: HERA (BIG 1-01) is an international, multicentre, open-label, phase 3 randomised trial of 5102 women with HER2-positive early breast cancer, who were enrolled from hospitals in 39 countries between Dec 7, 2001, and June 20, 2005...

AIMS: This study validates the Portuguese version of the psychological effects of the relational job characteristics scale among hospital nurses in Portugal and Brazil. BACKGROUND: Increasing attention has been given to the social dimension of work, following the transition to a service economy. Nevertheless, and despite the unquestionable relational characteristics of nursing work, scarce research has been developed among nurses under a relational job design framework...

Non-vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are now widely used as alternatives to warfarin for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation and management of venous thromboembolism. In clinical practice, there is still widespread uncertainty on how to manage patients on NOACs who bleed or who are at risk for bleeding. Clinical trial data related to NOAC reversal for bleeding and perioperative management are sparse, and recommendations are largely derived from expert opinion. Knowledge of time of last ingestion of the NOAC and renal function is critical to managing these patients given that laboratory measurement is challenging because of the lack of commercially available assays in the United States...

OBJECTIVE: The rates of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) in United States intensive care units (ICU) have decreased significantly, and a parallel reduction in the rates of total hospital onset bacteremias in these units should also be expected. We report 10-year trends for total hospital onset ICU-associated bacteremias at a tertiary care academic medical center. DESIGN: This was a retrospective analysis of all positive blood cultures among patients admitted to seven adult ICUs for the period FY2005 through FY2014 according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Healthcare Safety Network definitions...

OBJECTIVES: Proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) seem to increase the incidence of cardiovascular events in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), mainly in those using clopidogrel. We analysed the impact of PPIs on the prognosis of patients with stable CAD. METHODS: We followed 706 patients with CAD. Primary outcome was the combination of secondary outcomes. Secondary outcomes were 1) acute ischaemic events (any acute coronary syndrome, stroke, or transient ischaemic attack) and 2) heart failure (HF) or death...

BACKGROUND: Patients with chronic obstructive disease (COPD) are often prescribed statins due to the increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD). There is considerable debate about the benefits conferred by statins in patients with COPD. This study evaluates the association of statin use with all-cause and pulmonary-related mortality in COPD patients. METHODS: This study uses population-based administrative data for the province of British Columbia, Canada...

Lack of collaboration and communication can lead to medical errors, increased length of stay, and diminished patient satisfaction. The purpose of this project was to improve nurse efficiency, interdisciplinary communication and collaboration, and patient satisfaction with the discharge process through Rapid Rounds. The results demonstrated that interdisciplinary communication and collaboration improved coordination of care, as evidenced by improved Press Ganey percentile rankings for readiness for discharge and speed of the discharge process, increased pharmaceutical interventions, and fewer phone calls to physicians...

In recent years, US hospitals have switched from use of unfractionated heparin to use of low-molecular-weight heparin, which is associated with lower risk of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT). In the study reported here, we retrospectively searched the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) for patients who were at least 18 years old and received a diagnosis of HIT between 2009 and 2011. Our goal was to get an updated perspective on the incidence and economic impact of HIT. We calculated the incidence of HIT overall and in subgroups of patients who underwent cardiac, vascular, or orthopedic surgery...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes self-management involves adherence to healthy daily habits typically involving blood glucose monitoring, medication, exercise, and diet. To support self-management, some providers have begun testing remote interventions for monitoring and assisting patients between clinic visits. Although some studies have shown success, there are barriers to widespread adoption. OBJECTIVE: The objective of our study was to identify and classify barriers to adoption of remote health for management of type 2 diabetes...

Proton pump inhibitors are among the most commonly prescribed classes of drugs and their use is increasing, in particular for long term treatment, often being over-prescribed and used for inappropriate conditions. In recent years, considerable attention has been directed towards a wide range of adverse effects, and even when a potential underlying biological mechanism is plausible, the clinical evidence of the adverse effect is often weak. Several long term side effects have been investigated ranging from interaction with other drugs, increased risk of infection, reduced intestinal absorption of vitamins and minerals, and more recently kidney damage and dementia...
