While the vast majority of radiation treatments (RT) are effective and carried out without resulting in patient harm, quality and safety events of varying clinical significance do occur. Ensuring safety within RT is of paramount importance. To further support and augment patient safety efforts, a robust methodology is needed for analyzing human errors that defeat individual controls within RT quality assurance (QA) programs. We herein demonstrate an adapted use of a human error bowtie analysis to evaluate a...
The role of the radiation safety officer is to maintain radiation exposures as low as reasonably achievable. Traditionally, the focus has been on reducing or eliminating unnecessary occupational exposure to employees and ensuring exposure of visitors and members of the public is maintained below regulatory limits. Over the last three decades there has been increasing concern expressed in the medical literature on the potential risks of radiation exposure to patients undergoing diagnostic medical imaging pro...
Safety climates are perceptions of safety culture shared by staff in organizational units. Measuring staff perceptions of patient safety culture by using safety climate surveys is a possible way of addressing patient safety. Studies have documented that patient safety climates vary significantly between work sites in hospitals. Across-ward variations in the measurements of safety climate factor scores may indicate ward-specific risk of adverse events related to patient care routines, work environment, staff...
The goal of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel catheter for right radial artery approach cerebral angiography.
Currently, there is an increasing interest in noninvasive imaging of cardiovascular system such as computed tomography coronary angiography (CCTA). The risks of radiation-induced cancer and contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) have always been regarded as concerns which increased demand for CCTA using reduced radiation dose and iodine intake. We aimed to evaluate the image quality and radiation dose of CCTA by modifying tube voltage and concentration of contrast media.
Aquatic and terrestrial organisms are being exposed to a number of anthropogenically-induced environmental stresses as a consequence of climate change. In addition, climate change is altering various linkages that exist between ecosystems on land and in water. Here we compare and contrast how climate change is altering aquatic and terrestrial environments and address some of the ways that the organisms in these ecosystems, especially the primary producers, are being affected by climate change factors, inclu...
To evaluate the perception of nurses from different hospitalization units of a teaching hospital in Goiás about the climate of patient safety.
Previous studies have acknowledged the impact of risk perception on safety behavior, but were largely controversial. This study aims to clarify this conflict and the mechanism through which risk perception can have an impact on safety behavior. From the perspective of the dual attribute of the job demand concept in job demands-resources theory, we posit that risk perception can be considered as a job hindrance or a job challenge depending on the context, thereby resulting in a negative or positive impact on...
The data about the accuracy of dual-axis rotational coronary angiography (DARCA) in detecting coronary artery disease (CAD) is scare. This study aimed to compare the diagnostic accuracy of DARCA versus standard coronary angiography (SA). 70 patients with possible CAD underwent SA following by DARCA were prospectively enrolled. The primary endpoint was the non-inferiority comparison of the two modalities regarding diagnosis of CAD. Coronary lesion assessment, quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) analysis,...
This hybrid retrospective and prospective study performed on 200 consecu¬tive patients undergoing renal CTA, investigates the opacification of renal vasculature, radiation dose, and reader confidence.
Routine use of cranial angulation with 15-20 degrees, craniocaudal angled (CC) view, for cerebral digital subtraction angiography (DSA) helps minimize bone subtraction artifacts with less overlapping of the vessels, however, it may increase the radiation dose. We designed the phantom and patient studies to determine the effect of the angulation to the radiation dose and the feasibility of true posteroanterior angled (PA) view, in cerebral DSA.
To explore leading nurses' work values and their effect on the safety climate in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
Work stress among coal miners may affect health and well-being, which could have safety implications for their work. The purpose of the present study is to explore the mechanism of how psychosocial safety climate, work stress and job burnout impact on the unsafe behavior of miners. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Shanxi Province, China during 3 months in 2018. A total of 862 male miners were recruited from 30 coal mines; participants were aged 23-49 years (M = 33.54 yrs), with mining experien...
