Background With the Ministry of Health's projected increase in nursing home beds and optimization of antimicrobial use in health care settings, it is therefore timely to consider baseline prevalence and patterns of antimicrobial use at nursing homes in Singapore as well as to evaluate the prevalence of potential clinically significant drug-drug interactions involving antimicrobials. Objective The primary objective was to determine the prevalence and patterns of antimicrobial use at nursing homes in Singapor...
Psychosocial interventions demonstrate benefits during care for self-harm patients, however their adoption in hospital care remain largely unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the variation in and factors associated with psychosocial intervention use when treating self-harm patients at New South Wales (NSW) public hospitals.
Adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients are at increased risk of sudden cardiac death and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Currently, insufficient data exist on outcome, causes and circumstances of OHCA of ACHD patients resuscitated for OHCA. We investigate these parameters in ACHD patients in comparison to OHCA in the general population.
Sound pressure levels were monitored in a general hospital, in Greece, at ten indoor locations and at three outdoor locations, in the yard of the building. The selected indoor locations are representative of distinct activities that are common in every hospital, such as the emergency department, patient wards and several supporting services, like washing the clothes or the dishes. Noise levels were highly variable in each monitoring location and depended on the activities in the room, such as conversations,...
The targets for vital parameters following return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) are based on studies carried out predominantly in intensive care units. Therefore, we studied the pre-hospital phase.
To determine the prevalence, risk factors, and impact of myopic macular degeneration (MMD) on visual impairment and functioning among adults in Singapore.
The Franciscan Hospital for Children Oral Health-Related Quality of Life questionnaire (FHC-OHRQOL-Q) is an instrument designed specifically for parents and caregivers of patients with special needs that has not yet been applied in Spain. The aim of this study was to adapt it to Spanish and evaluate its reliability and validity in patients with intellectual disability (ID) treated under general anesthesia.
The traditional 24-h call model faces pressure from competing needs between emergency and elective services. Recognizing this, a dedicated ESAT service was developed in Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Singapore, with improved clinical outcomes. It was initially led by a single consultant (SC) in 2014, and subsequently evolved to a weekly consultant rotation (WC) roster in 2017 to achieve sustainability.
Based on research at a dementia day-care center in Singapore, I discuss how embodied care relations proceed amidst cultural expectations on aging, dementia, and care work. Engaging with approaches that conceptualize "care" as either empathy or control, I argue that care between older people with dementia, their families, and care workers can be understood as a reiterative, dialogic process whereby care participants strive to keep pace with each other, however briefly, due to cognitive decline, care workers'...
Researchers, policymakers and hospital managers often encounter numerous quality measures when assessing hospital quality. The purpose of this paper is to address the challenge of summarising, interpreting and comparing multiple quality measures across different quality dimensions by proposing a simple method of constructing a composite quality index. The method is applied to hospital administrative data to demonstrate its use in analysing hospital performance.
Hospital length of stay is often used as a measure of in-hospital recovery but may be confounded by organizational factors. Time to readiness for discharge may provide a superior index of recovery.
Uterine rupture is a rare complication in second trimester termination of pregnancy (TOP) with an overall incidence of up to 1.1%. There are concerns that patients with previous caesarean section(s) were at an increased risk of uterine rupture. However, there is no published data in our local population to date. This study aims to identify the incidence and contributing factors for uterine rupture in women undergoing TOP in Singapore.
In Ethiopia, the trend of neonatal mortality showed slow pace of reduction from 2000-2016 compared to the reduction in infant and under-five mortality over the same period. This study aimed at unpacking the trends of admission, specific causes and rate of neonatal mortality as well as predictors of neonatal mortality at a general hospital in Somali region of Ethiopia.
California has heavily concentrated hospital, physician, and health insurance markets, but their current structure and functioning is not well understood. We assessed consolidation trends and performed an analysis of "hot spots"-markets that potentially warrant concern and scrutiny by regulators in terms of both horizontal concentration (such as hospital-hospital mergers) and vertical integration (hospitals' acquisition of physician practices). In 2016, seven counties were high on all six measures used in o...
Quantification of elective and emergency hospital admissions as a resultant of patients' diagnostic and therapeutic pathways (referral system) and patients' preferences to choose the health-care provider.
Identifying the barriers to gastric cancer care at safety-net hospitals: A novel comparison of a safety-net hospital to a neighboring quaternary referral academic center in the same healthcare system.
The three-delays model describes delays in seeking, reaching, and receiving care for vulnerable populations needing treatment. The dominant delay for patients with gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC) is unknown. We aimed to define patients with GAC who reached and received care at our regional safety-net hospital (Grady Memorial Hospital [GMH]) and our neighboring quaternary referral hospital (Emory University Hospital [EUH]).
To propose a new multicomponent measure of hospital-associated complications of older people (HAC-OP) and evaluate its validity in a large hospital sample.
Australians can seek general practice care from multiple general practitioners (GPs) in multiple locations. This provides high levels of patient choice but may reduce continuity of care. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of attendance at multiple general practices in Australia, and identify patient characteristics associated with multiple practice attendances.
The global dissemination of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is of great concern for public health. These bacteria have the potential for rapid dissemination in healthcare settings and cause infections associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. A total of 221 carbapenem non-susceptible Enterobacteriaceae isolates were collected from patients admitted to an Italian general hospital from January 2016 to March 2017. Among these isolates, 78.3% were carbapenemase producers: 96% were ...
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors suffer from psychological distress and cognitive impairments. They experience existential insecurity and vulnerability and are striving to return to a life in which well-being and the meaning of life have partly changed. However, research highlighting the experiences of in-hospital cardiac arrest survivors is lacking. This means that evidence for postresuscitation care has largely been extrapolated from studies on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survivors, without con...
Handwashing sink drains are increasingly implicated as a potential reservoir of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in hospital outbreaks; however, usage patterns that may promote this source remain unknown.
