In China, medical staff of children's hospitals are commonly exposed to violence. However, few studies on medical violence are conducted in the settings of children's hospitals. The aim of this study is to assess the incidence, magnitude, consequences, and potential risk factors of workplace violence (WPV) against medical staff of children's hospitals.
A short report describing the unique experience of visiting the famous Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio, Texas, USA and its Burn Center and Plastic Surgery Department in the period between June 27 and August 26, 2016.
There are unique considerations in the medical care of children, which includes the use of medical imaging. Medical imaging is frequently necessary and is essential in diagnosis and management of children with illness and injury. Much of medical imaging requires ionizing radiation. While virtually all diagnostic imaging radiation is considered low-dose level, there is still a broad misperception about what modalities use ionizing radiation and how much radiation risk exists in the medical environment. A dis...
Clinical neurosurgery has been practiced in the US capital for just over 100 years. As former residents and fellows of Drs. Harvey Cushing and Walter Dandy moved to the region, hospitals at Georgetown and George Washington Universities became early adopters of this new surgical discipline. Later academic neurosurgery programs were established at the National Institutes of Health, Walter Reed Medical Center, and Children's National Medical Center. Neurosurgical pioneers at these institutions developed new te...
Physicians have an ethical and legal mandate to identify abused children so that they may be protected from further harm and are simultaneously required to think broadly and objectively about differential diagnoses. The medical literature is replete with examples of medical diseases that mimic abuse, potentially leading to misdiagnoses and subsequent harm to children and families.
Children with medical complexity constitute a small but resource-intensive subgroup of children with special health care needs. Their medical fragility and resource-intensive needs put them at greater risk for inadequate transitions from hospital to home-based care, and subsequent adverse outcomes and hospital re-admissions.
Orthopaedic care is shifting to alternative payment models. We examined whether New York University Langone Medical Center achieved savings under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative.
This study examines medical conditions diagnosed prior to the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Using a matched case control design with 3911 ASD cases and 38,609 controls, we found that 38 out of 79 medical conditions were associated with increased ASD risk. Developmental delay, mental health, and neurology conditions had the strongest associations (ORs 2.0-23.3). Moderately strong associations were observed for nutrition, genetic, ear nose and throat, and sleep conditions (ORs 2.1-3.2). Using m...
Conferences, processes, and/or meetings in which adverse events and near misses are reviewed within clinical programs at a single academic medical center were identified.
Medical experiences can be frightening and traumatic for children. Ill and injured children can experience pediatric medical traumatic stress-psychological and physiological distress responses related to their medical event and subsequent medical treatment experiences-which can lead to symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and suboptimal health outcomes. Trauma-informed care provides a framework for acknowledging, addressing, and mitigating the risks of psychological trauma associated with medica...
In parts of Ohio, Veterans Affairs Medical Centers are working to handle patient load issues by sending patient overflows to the Wright-Patterson Medical Center. The Wright-Patterson Medical Center will benefit from the increase in patients; however, there are concerns that the patient quality of care may suffer. If the increase in patients results in the healthcare staff experiencing high mental workload levels, staff performance could be reduced. The objective of this research is to evaluate the influence...
Non-medical prescribing is well established within the British health service, with increasing numbers of nurses practicing within children's hospices.
Legionella pneumophila had been recognized as an important pathogen for community-acquired pneumonia. We aimed to investigate clinical features and outcomes of patients with Legionnaires' disease at a tertiary medical center in northern Taiwan.
Cryptosporidiosis is a common cause of persistent diarrhoea in children in developing countries. Previously it was thought to be a major pathogenic organism in immuno-compromised children, but recent studies have shown it to be a common infectious agent in immune-competent children as well.
Neuro-oncology is a subspecialty attracting physicians from medical disciplines such as neurology, neurosurgery, pediatrics, oncology, and radiotherapy. It deals with diagnosis and management of primary brain tumors, as well as metastatic and non-metastatic neurological manifestations that frequently affect cancer patients including brain metastases, paraneoplastic syndromes and neurological complications of cancer treatment. A neuro-oncology unit was established in Davidoff Cancer Center at Rabin Medical C...
A cross-sectional study from a tertiary-care-center in India was undertaken to assess and compare the prevalence of blood glucose and lipid profile aberrations in children who received first-line anti-retroviral therapy (ART) (n=63) and in children who were naïve to ART (n=46).Impaired fasting blood glucose values were found in 7 children in ART-experienced group but none in ART-naïve group (p=0.02). Low concentrations of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol were more prevalent in the ART-naïve gro...
Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) encephalitis is a disorder characterized by acute neuro-psychiatric symptoms, appearing mostly after a recent febrile disease, with a gradual progressive course, associated with laboratory or radiologic evidence of active inflammation. Many of the patients will present with a continuous neuro-cognitive disorder which could lead to major morbidity and even mortality. It was recently reported that this disorder can present at childhood as a primary disease or as a secondary co...
The aim of this prospective single-center study was to determine the changings in incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD), serotype distribution and the antimicrobial resistance patterns of S. pneumoniae in children with IPD after the period (1 to 7 years) of vaccination with PCV7 (2008) and PCV13 (2011).
We have integrated preventive oral health measures into preventive care visits for children at a federally qualified health center in Boston, Massachusetts. The program, started in 2015, covers 3400 children and has increased universal caries risk screening in primary care to 85%, fluoride varnish application rates to 80%, and referrals to a dental home to 35%. We accomplished this by minimizing pressures on providers' workflow, empowering medical assistants to lead the initiative, and utilizing data-driven...
Invasive candidiasis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in children. However, limited data is available on the epidemiology of this infection in pediatric settings in Iran. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence, microbial epidemiology, risk factors, and clinical outcomes associated with candidemia in intensive care units at Children's Medical Center, Tehran, Iran. All blood and other normally sterile specimen cultures positive for Candida species, were included. Isolates were...
Use of therapeutic flexible airway endoscopy (TFAE) is very limited in pediatrics. We report our clinical experiences and long term outcomes of TFAE in small children from a single tertiary referral center.
Millions of patients travel internationally for medical and surgical care. We found that the annual number of centers accredited by the Joint Commission International increased from one center in 1999 to 132 centers in 2016; there are currently 939 accredited centers across 66 countries. Public health and medicolegal implications related to medical travel deserve attention.
