This cross-sectional study aims to describe the dental caries experience, treatment needs, and experience of dry mouth of 191 long-term psychiatric inpatients in Singapore.

Information on brushing, pain (when eating), and xerostomia was gathered. Bivariate analysis was used to examine the associations of DMFT, saliva flow, the presence of salivary gla...
To examine trends in the incidence, characteristics and in-hospital outcomes of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) hospitalizations from 2001 to 2015; to compare clinical variables among patients according to the diagnosis position (primary or secondary) of CDI and to identify factors associated with in-hospital mortality (IHM).

High rates of unplanned hospital readmissions are a burden on healthcare systems and individuals. This study examined factors at, and after initial hospital discharge and their associations with unplanned hospital readmission for older adults up to six months post-discharge from subacute care.
With the increase in long-term survival of post-transplant children, there is a paradigm shift in the emphasis of post-transplant care. We describe de novo cardiovascular abnormalities, which occurred in otherwise asymptomatic paediatric liver transplant recipients, who received liver allografts between 1991 and 2014 at the National University Hospital, Singapore, detected during routine post-transplant monitoring. A total of 96 paediatric liver transplants were performed in 90 children. After transplant, 7...
The US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's State Ambulatory Surgery Database includes procedures performed at hospital outpatient surgery departments. We hypothesized that, among US hospitals with an anesthesia department and freestanding outpatient surgical center, the prevalence on hospital campuses (i.e., within 250 yards of the main hospital building) would be sufficiently large (e.g., >10%) to influence interpretation of observational studies performed with US national ambulatory surgery dat...
Research investigating risk factors for hospital-acquired pressure injury (HAPI) has primarily focused on the characteristics of patients and nursing staff. Limited data are available on the association of hospital characteristics with HAPI.
Objective To determine patient, hospital, and clinical characteristics associated with the length of stay (LOS), total hospital charges, and total hospital costs in cystic fibrosis (CF). Methods Hospital discharge records with primary and secondary diagnoses of CF were identified from the 2012 Kids' Inpatient Database (KID) consisting of inpatient records of ages 0-20 years; and 2012 National Inpatient Sample (NIS) consisting of inpatient records of ages 21 and above. Both the databases are part of the Heal...
Sexual dysfunctions are a high prevalence health problem, making it necessary to provide assessment instruments adapted to the Portuguese population.
The United States Veterans Health Administration (VHA) serves more than 9 million enrolled Veterans each year. Although most of the care that the VHA sponsors is delivered within its own facilities, there has been a call for "privatizing" some or all of these services. Under such an arrangement, the Department of Veterans Affairs would pay non-VHA providers to deliver care in facilities open to the general public. Privatization is hotly contested on political grounds and is not resolved. Yet the question wh...
Over the last 20 years, the emergence of the hospitalist has changed the face of medicine. Hospitalists may serve as either general or specialty-focused providers caring for acutely ill patients in the hospital setting. As the demands and constraints of hospital-specific patient management have continued to grow, an increased need for inclusion of nurse practitioners (NP) into current hospitalist staffing models has occurred. A hospitalist-focused educational model has been developed to better prepare NP st...
To investigate treatment selection in a naturalistic sample of MDD outpatients and the factors influencing treatment selection in specialized psychiatric care.
Clinical providers have access to a number of pharmacologic agents during in-hospital cardiac arrest. Few studies have explored medication administration patterns during in-hospital cardiac arrest. Herein, we examine trends in use of pharmacologic interventions during in-hospital cardiac arrest both over time and with respect to the American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support guideline updates.
Individuals discharged from the hospital to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) experience high rates of unplanned hospital readmission, indicating opportunity for improvement in transitional care.
The Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) is currently one of the most widely used measures in both research and clinical practice for assessing depression. Although the psychometric properties of the scale have been well established through many studies worldwide, so far there is no study examining the validity and reliability of BDI-II in Republic Dominican. The purpose of the present study was twofold: (a) to examine the latent structure of BDI-II by testing several competing models proposed in the liter...
This pilot study tests the feasibility of implementing a two-session intervention that addresses adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), post-traumatic stress symptoms, and health risk behaviors (HRBs) among Black primary care patients. African Americans are disproportionately exposed to stressful and traumatic events and are at greater risk for PTSD than the general population.
Doctors are responsible for code status discussions with patients in the hospital setting. However, several barriers are associated with these discussions, relating to both doctors and patients. Inadequate or insufficient communication can lead to inappropriate care, contrary to patients' preferences and, subsequently, to a suboptimal use of health care resources. Ways to improve these discussions have been identified, such as doctor-targeted educational programs and inserting decisions about code status wi...
