Cuidados paliativos: enfrentamento dos enfermeiros de um hospital privado na cidade do Rio de Janeiro – RJ / Palliative care: coping nurses in a private hospital in the city of Rio de Janeiro - RJ

The verb ‘to palliate’, from the Latin palliare, palium, means in its most comprehensive way, protect, cover with cover. Nonetheless, palliation is more commonly used in the hospital setting, such as provisionally relieving, remediating, false looking, concealing, delaying, and postponing. Authors point out that the main objectives of palliation consist in promoting full comfort to human nature, contemplating the following aspects: physical, emotional, spiritual and social,

UNUSUAL FUNDOPOSTERIOR RUPTURE OF SCARRED UTERUS IN THIRD TRIMESTER OF PREGNANCY

UNUSUAL FUNDOPOSTERIOR RUPTURE OF SCARRED UTERUS IN THIRD TRIMESTER OF PREGNANCY

Uterine rupture occurring in an unusual site in a scarred uterus is sometimes an unpredictable event. In our case the patient had a previous LSCS in a private hospital 8 years back for IUFD with? Placenta previa. If we analyze the present rupture there is possibility that the previous operating surgeon might have taken fundal incision during caesarian section due to technical reasons and it could be the cause for antenatal rupture of uterus.

Objectives: To identify communication difficulties faced by the nursing staff and to learn the strategies developed for non-oral communication. Methods: This is a descriptive, exploratory, level I study with a quantitative approach. The sample group comprised 37 registered nurses and 63 licensed practical nurses of a private hospital who, after undergoing the ethical-legal procedures, answered a questionnaire to identify difficulties faced and strategies used in the care for hearing-impaired patients. Results: Difficulty in explaining matters of interest to the patient was reported by 66% of professionals; and 32% reported difficulties in understanding patients in their way of communicate. The strategy adopted by 100% of respondents was mimicry, followed by lip reading, used by 94% of respondents; help from a person accompanying the patient was used by 65%, and written communication by 42% of respondents. Only 1% used communication via the Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS). Conclusions: The difficulties found and the strategies adopted by the nursing staff in communicating with hearing-impaired patients justify the need to train these professionals to deliver a more humanized care, developing a more inclusive society for those with special needs.

observed important differences between a public hospital and a private hospital in the diagnosis and outcomes of patients with appendicitis who underwent appendectomy. More patients were previously evaluated by other physicians in the group from the public hospital than from the private hospital. Another striking difference was related to preoperative ultrasonography. This imaging exam was performed more often in patients from the public hospital. The main reason for this difference is that most patients seen at public hospital had ultrasonography performed at request of the referral physician prior to hospital evaluation. The inluence of different surgical teams in the evaluation and treatment of patients with acute appendicitis was ruled out in our study since the surgical coordination and staff of both hospitals comprised the same group of surgeons.

ABSTRACT: Evaluate the patient safety climate from the perspective of the health team members at a medium-sized private hospital in a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil and check for relations between the sociodemographic variables and the safety climate scores. This is a descriptive, exploratory and correlational study, conducted with 123 health professionals, with approval from the Research Ethics Committee. Data were collected using the Safety Attitudes Questionnaire. For analysis, we used Student’s t-test, analysis of variance and Spearman’s correlation (α = 0.05). The general score on the instrument was 67.50. The best domain score was found for job satisfaction (82.79) and the lowest for perceived management (58.90) and working conditions (59.58). No differences were found between the sexes, education level, presence of other employment or professional activities. The safety climate scores observed were lower than the scores recommended in the literature.

Poverty in the midst of plenty: unmet needs and distribution of health care resources in South Korea.

Poverty in the midst of plenty: unmet needs and distribution of health care resources in South Korea.

Moreover, due to ineffective regulations on private hospitals, the Korean health care delivery system has no mechanism for functional differentiation and referral arrangement across levels of the system [28,29]. Under the supply overflow and the disorganized health delivery system, competition among private hospitals has intensified [28,29]. As the revenue of most private hospitals is made up almost exclusively of patient care without philanthropic donations or government subsidy [29], they behave as for-profit entities notwithstanding their not-for-profit status in legal terms [29,31,32]. They compete through quality of medical services rather than price under the fee-for-service reimbursement scheme [29,31,32]. Competition based on quality translates to expansion of specialists, high-tech equipment, and reduced waiting times. The widening gap of quality medical services among hospitals spurred the excessive expansion of private hospital beds. In short, to win the ‘‘medical arms race’’, private hospitals have competed to have more beds for more financing. They could easily induce the demand of uninsured services and charge higher prices for them than their public sector counterparts. As a result, the average length of stay is one and a half times longer than the OECD average [31]. Precedent studies from other countries and Table 1. Prevalence of unmet needs for health care and distributions of health care resources in 1,000 residents across regions.

Abstract In August/1999, a group of 14 adults from the staff of a private hospital in Contagem – Minas Gerais State, Brazil, received unintentionally a 25 times concentrated dose of the 17-DD yellow fever vaccine (Bio- Manguinhos), due to a mistake at the reconstitution step. All patients were clinically and laboratorially evaluated at days 5, 13 and 35 post vaccination. Frequency of side effects and clinical observations of this group of individuals were not different from the observed in recipients immunized with normal doses of the vaccine. At the second and third evaluation none of the subjects reported symptoms. None of the patients presented abnormalities at the physical examination at none of the time points and in all cases the blood examination was normal, except for a reduced number of platelets that was detected in one subject at the first and second evaluation and reverted to normal at third evaluation. At the first evaluation point, 8 subjects were serum negative and 6 serum positive for yellow fever at the plaque reduction neutralization test. In 5 subjects the observed titre was 10 times higher as the baseline of 2.36 Log 10 mUI/ml. The samples collected at second and third evaluation (13 th and 35 th days) demonstrated that all subjects responded to the vaccination with the exception of one that

Objective: To describe the epidemiologic characteristics and adverse events of patients submitted to total hip and total knee replacement. Methods: A cross-sectional study retrospectively assessing medical chart data of all total hip and total knee replacements performed at a private hospital, between January 2007 and December 2010 Patients submitted to total hip and total knee replacement, with consent of surgeons were included. Incomplete records and/or missing data of the hospital database were excluded. The categorical variables analyzed were age, gender, type of arthroplasty (primary or secondary), type of procedure, duration of surgery, use of drains, risk of infection, compliance to protocol for prevention of deep venous thrombosis and embolism pulmonary, and compliance to the protocol for prevention of infection. The outcomes assessed were adverse events after surgery. Results: A total of 510 patients were included; in that, 166 admissions for knee replacements (92 male) and 344 admissions for hip replacements (176 female). The mean age of patients was 71 years (range 31-99 years). Adverse events were reported in 76 patients (14.9%); there was no correlation between assessed variables and number of complications. Conclusion: The results showed no individual factors favoring complications in patients submitted to total hip and total knee replacement; hence, surgeons should consider prophylaxis to avoid complications.

Spectrum of Microbial Diseases and Resistance Patterns at a Private Teaching Hospital in Kenya: Implications for Clinical Practice.

Spectrum of Microbial Diseases and Resistance Patterns at a Private Teaching Hospital in Kenya: Implications for Clinical Practice.

Of the organisms causing bacteremia within 72 hours of hospital admission, E. coli was the most common, followed by S. aureus and S. pneumoniae (together with K. pneumoniae) respectively (Table 1). It is only when surveying the less common blood isolates that the spec- trum is significantly different from what is found in developed countries. Notably, Salmonella species (both typhoidal and non-typhoidal) comprised nearly 6% of community-acquired iso- lates. We also considered whether the age of our patients was an important contributing factor in view of the fact that many of the reported series were primarily from children, and the patient population in the current series was older. Therefore, we compared the ages of patients with bacteremia caused by E. coli, Klebsiella and Salmonella. The average ages were 57, 40 and 30 years, respectively. When limiting the analysis to patients whose blood cultures were
