Dewatering from sludge is an important sustainable issue in recent years, in this work, we found the unique behavior: Skeleton builder additions can improve the dewatering performance greatly, which related to the different pore structure of skeleton builder. As compared to the coal ash, sawdust and rice husk char are easier to construct porous channels in the sludge body, which is responsible for the discharge of water. the dewatering efficiency can increased from approximately 30%-65% by pipe network effe...
Little is known about whether and how local-level resources regarding home care are associated with the prevalence of home deaths. We aimed to investigate whether geographic patterns of the resources for home care were associated with the prevalence of home deaths, taking spatial variation into consideration.
Dysphagia is a frequent finding in nursing home residents. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association of dysphagia and mortality in nursing home residents and identify further risk factors for mortality in residents with dysphagia.
We examined differences in patient outcomes associated with 3 patient-centered medical home (PCMH) recognition programs-National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Level 3, The Joint Commission (TJC), and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)-among Medicare beneficiaries receiving care at federally qualified health centers (FQHCs).
Home telemonitoring (HTM) is a promising approach to improve quality of life (QoL) and decrease hospital utilization.
The Pacific Islands Geriatric Education Center of the University of Hawaii conducted situational assessments of caregivers, older adults, and healthcare professionals in the Republic of Palau. The findings revealed an urgent need for a solution to the identified crisis of an aging population, increasing chronic diseases and their corresponding impact on caregivers and society. In 2010, the National Healthcare Financing Act was signed into law, becoming Palau's first step in helping residents and workers in ...
To improve breastfeeding through home visiting.
Objectives Improving family retention and engagement is crucial to the success of home visiting programs. Little is known about retaining and engaging depressed parents in services. The purpose of the study is to examine how home visit content moderates the association between depression and retention and engagement. Methods The sample (N = 1322) was served by Healthy Families America (n = 618) and Parents as Teachers (n = 704) between April 1, 2012 and June 30, 2016. Parents averaged 23 years ...
There are advantages to home dialysis for patients, and kidney care programs, but use remains low in most countries. Health-care policy-makers have many levers to increase use of home dialysis, one of them being economic incentives. These include how health-care funding is provided to kidney care programs and dialysis facilities; how physicians are remunerated for care of home dialysis patients; and financial incentives-or removal of disincentives-for home dialysis patients. This report is based on a compre...
Post-traumatic stress symptom development as a function of changing witnessing in-home violence and changing peer post-traumatic stress symptom development as a function of changing witnessing in-home violence and changing peer relationship quality: Evaluating protective effects of peer relationship quality.
In the present study, witnessing in-home violence and peer relationship quality are evaluated as to their relative impact on Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) symptoms among children aged 8 to 17 investigated by child protective services (CPS) for maltreatment exposure. The sample included 2151 children from the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being II (NSCAW II). Linear growth models were estimated to assess associations between changes in PTS symptoms, witnessing in-home violence, and peer relation...
This study aimed to examine the association of independence in ADL with the loads during step ascent motion and other motor functions in 32 nursing home-residing elderly individuals.
Airway device placement and maintenance are of utmost importance when managing critically ill patients. The best method to secure airway devices is currently unknown.
The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Home-Based Primary Care (HBPC) program provides care to over 37,000 high-risk, high-need, medically complex, and costly patients in their home. The VA's Home Telehealth (HT) program can potentially amplify HBPC's efficiency and reach, yet scarce data on use and experience with HT in HBPC exist. This exploratory study sought to provide a glimpse of HT use in HBPC and identify drivers and barriers for HT implementation.
The National Association of EMS Physicians emphasizes the importance of high quality communication between emergency medical services (EMS) providers and emergency department (ED) staff for providing safe, effective care. The Joint Commission has identified ineffective handoff communication as a contributing factor in 80% of serious medical errors. The quality of handoff communication from EMS to ED teams for critically ill pediatric patients needs further exploration.
The National Institute on Aging-Alzheimer's Association Research Framework on Alzheimer's disease (AD) represents an important advance in the biological characterization of the AD spectrum.
Preventive home visits (PHV) are a measure for promoting the health of elderly people. A study of these measures used over the past 40 years in many countries across the globe revealed a very diverse picture regarding targeted groups, applied structures and intervention contents. So far, there has been no clear evidence of their effectiveness on outcomes such as mortality, need for care, hospital or nursing home admissions. However, a steady increase in PHV programmes in Germany warrants an examination of t...
This study aimed to examine associations between health status and care needs of nursing home residents and risk of death from suicide compared to other causes through a retrospective data linkage cohort study examining nursing home resident deaths in Australia between 2000 and 2013. Data linkage was performed between aged care assessment tools-Resident Classification System and Aged Care Funding Instrument-and the National Coronial Information System. A competing risks survival analysis was performed to de...
More than 6 million adults in the United States are homebound or semi-homebound and would benefit from home-based medical care (HBMC). There is currently no nationally recognized quality of care framework for home-based medical care. We sought to capture diverse stakeholder perspectives on the essential aspects of quality HBMC and create a quality of care framework for homebound adults. A qualitative analysis of semistructured interviews from purposive sampling of key HBMC stakeholders was performed. Leader...
Home blood pressure (BP) measurement has been well accepted for use in the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension. However, data regarding the association between home BP levels and cardiovascular events in a general practice population aged ≥80 years are sparse.
The past several decades have seen significant policy efforts to improve the quality of care in nursing homes, but the patient safety movement has largely ignored this setting. In this study we compared nursing homes' performance on several composite quality measures from Nursing Home Compare, the most prominent recent example of a national policy aimed at improving the quality of nursing home care, to their performance on measures of patient safety in nursing homes such as pressure sores, infections, falls...
