Pool chemicals are added to water in treated recreational water venues (e.g., pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds) primarily to protect public health. Pool chemicals inactivate pathogens (e.g., chlorine or bromine), optimize pH (e.g., muriatic acid), and increase water clarity, which helps prevent drowning by enabling detection of distressed swimmers underwater. However, pool chemicals can cause injuries if mishandled. To estimate the annual number of U.S. emergency department (ED) visits for pool c...
More than 13 million employees are working in the public education sector which includes more than just teachers in the United States. This industry sector also employs custodians, maintenance, and administration. To date, there is very limited information about the type and frequency of injuries for these employees.
While it is well-known that injuries are a common cause of morbidity among children, limited information is available on injuries that occur in agricultural settings. This study characterizes pediatric farm injuries that present to United States emergency departments and compares them to injuries that occur in the normal course of childhood, at homes and residences.
To estimate the association between rates of police-related deaths and neighborhood residential segregation (by income, race/ethnicity, or both combined) in the United States.
Eye injuries occur frequently in the United States resulting in vision loss. Protective eyewear (PE) is a simple, effective way to prevent these injuries. The study aims to evaluate characteristics associated with no PE usage in hopes to better understand factors that may be targeted to alleviate future injuries.
In 2015 there were 36,252 firearm-related deaths and 84,997 nonfatal injuries in the United States. The longitudinal burden of these injuries through readmissions is currently underestimated. We aimed to determine the 6-month readmission risk and hospital costs for patients injured by firearms.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, trauma is the leading cause of death in children >1 year in the United States (US). Although vascular injuries occur in only 0.6-1% of pediatric trauma patients, they are a major mortality contributor. This study aims to examine epidemiology and outcomes after pediatric vascular injuries (Ped VIs) in the US.
Pediatric foreign body (FB) injuries to the nasal, aural, and/or oral cavities are well documented. Description of austere foreign body (AFB) injuries involving the rectum, vagina, or penis eludes the current pediatric literature. Austere FBs can be difficult to identify and have the potential to cause serious consequences. We aim to characterize AFB injuries by children and adolescents presenting to emergency departments (EDs) in the United States.
To assess whether increasing health aid investments affected public opinion of the United States in recipient populations. We linked health aid data from the United States to nationally representative opinion poll surveys from 45 countries conducted between 2002 and 2016. We exploited the abrupt and substantial increase in health aid when the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) were launched to assess unique changes in opinions of the United State...
We implemented routine HIV screening as part of the 4-year Care and Prevention in the United States Demonstration Project, whose aim was to reduce HIV/AIDS-related morbidity and mortality among racial/ethnic minority groups in the United States. We describe the capacity-building efforts to implement routine HIV screening and provide lessons learned and implications for practice.
Each year approximately 48,000 youth are incarcerated in residential placement facilities (YRFs) in the United States. The limited existing literature addressing the workforce in these settings paints a complicated picture. The YRF workforce is highly motivated to work with legal system involved youth. However, YRF staff report high rates of burnout, job fatigue, and work-related stress. The current paper proposes solutions to persistent problems faced by staff in these settings by integrating literature fr...
To assess states' provision of technical assistance and allocation of block grants for treatment, prevention, and outreach after the expansion of health insurance coverage for addiction treatment in the United States under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We used 2 waves of survey data collected from Single State Agencies in 2014 and 2017 as part of the National Drug Abuse Treatment System Survey. The percentage of states providing technical assistance for cross-sector collaboration and workforce developmen...
The objective of this study was to examine the association between childhood injury and health outcomes among survivors and their mothers using a national survey in the United States (US).
The purpose of the cross-sectional study was to explore the relationships between occupational and general-self efficacy, and perceived preparedness among Commissioned Corps officers in the United States Public Health Service (Commissioned Corps). Commissioned Corps officers fight to protect the United States from diseases and care for the survivors of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. Commissioned Corps officers play a vital role in the fight to protect the United States from diseases and care for t...
Young adulthood, typically conceptualized as stretching from the late teens to the mid-twenties, is a period of elevated risk for residential mobility (i.e., moving or changing residences frequently) and drug involvement. However, our understanding of the trends and drug-related correlates of residential mobility among young adults remains limited.
To assess changes in disparities of HIV diagnosis rates among Black women aged 18 years or older living in the United States.
Excessive alcohol use is responsible for 88 000 deaths in the United States annually and cost the United States $249 billion in 2010. There is strong scientific evidence that regulating alcohol outlet density is an effective intervention for reducing excessive alcohol consumption and related harms, but there is no standard method for measuring this exposure.
More than 20 years have passed since the first publication of estimates of the extent of medical harm occurring in hospitals in the United States. Since then, considerable resources have been allocated to improve patient safety, yet policymakers lack a clear gauge of the progress made.
Approximately 60,000 to 70,000 firefighters suffer work-related injuries per year in the United States. Approximately 10% of these injuries occur from burns or smoke inhalation. Previous analyses of the National Burn Repository (NBR) suggest that not all records of firefighter injuries are being captured. Therefore, an additional field was added to the NBR in 2016 to designate if the injury was sustained by a firefighter on duty. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the revisions have increased ...
Police violence is reportedly widespread in the United States and may pose a significant risk to public mental health.
There has been a small, but significant, increase in community births (home and birth-center births) in the United States in recent years. The rate increased by 20% from 2004 to 2008, and another 59% from 2008 to 2012, though the overall rate is still low at less than 2%. Although the United States is not the only country with a large majority of births occurring in the hospital, there are other high-resource countries where home and birth-center birth are far more common and where community midwives (those...
Horse riding is a popular activity but has also been found to lead to many injuries and even fatalities. No reduction in the numbers of those being admitted to hospital for equestrian-related injuries have been seen in Sweden in recent years. The aim of this work was to examine injuries, fatalities, and predictors of fatalities in equestrian-related activities and to investigate the cost of these injuries to the public health system.
