We compared the accuracies of each scale for predicting in‐hospital mortality within 24 hours of a mental‐status observation using area under the receiver operating characteristic curves (AUC).RESULTSThere were , paired observations of GCS and RASS obtained f admissions; (%) resulted in in‐hospital by: UT Southwestern Medical Center. (, March 31). Data from full hospital stay not much better at predicting risk for readmission than data from first day, researchers find. ScienceDaily.
Falls are common in old age and may have serious consequences. There are many strategies to predict and prevent falls from occurring in long-term care and hospitals. The aim of this study was to describe licensed practical nurse experiences of predicting and preventing further falls when working with patients who had experienced a fall-related by: 3. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality says that between , and 1 million patients fall in hospitals each year, according to a report in Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. Each year, approximat falls result in a fatality, and between 30 and 35 percent of patients who fall are injured, center officials say.

Predicting and preventing avoidable hospital admissions: A review Article Literature Review in The journal of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh 43(4).
This chapter has presented an overview of research and evidence-based practices for elderly care during hospitalization to prevent functional decline.
A number of other chapters in this book further address related areas, such as averting patient falls, preventing pressure ulcers, symptom management, and other aspects of care for the hospitalized elder.
Continued research and Cited by: Predicting Functional Decline and Recovery for Residents in Veterans Affairs Nursing Homes Article (PDF Available) in The Gerontologist 56(1) July with Reads How we. With the demographic and epidemiological changes, an increasing number of older Predicting and preventing hospital decline book are admitted to hospital.
These patients are at increased risk of adverse health outcomes, including functional decline, increased length of stay, institutionalization, geriatric syndromes (e.g. delirium), hospital readmissions and by: Methods Patient characteristics at the time of presentation in the ACTION (Acute Coronary Treatment and Intervention Outcomes Network) Registry–GWTG (Get With the Guidelines) database from January through December were used to develop a multivariate hierarchical logistic regression model predicting in-hospital mortality.
The Cited by: In the Emergency Department (ED), early and rapid identification of older people at risk of adverse outcomes, who could best benefit from complex geriatric intervention, would avoid wasting time, especially in terms of prevention of adverse outcomes, and ensure optimal orientation of vulnerable patients.
We wanted to test the predictive ability of a screening tool Cited by: 5. 7 GA and CGA have a role in predicting complications and side effects from cancer treatment. During the cancer treatment trajectory, CGA may be used as a tool to identify new deficits (e.g., a decline in functional activity levels) and devise treatment strategies to mitigate such by: 1.
Anthracyclines (doxorubicin, daunorubicin, epirubicin, and idarubicin) are among the most potent chemotherapeutic agents and have truly revolutionized the management of childhood cancer.

Preventing Patient Falls presents the authoritative Morse Fall Scale for predicting the likelihood of a patient falling. The book is the culmination of the author's eight years of research into patient falls and what can be done to prevent them.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has increased rates of public and private health insurance in the United States. Increasing coverage could raise hospital revenue and reduce the need to shift costs to insured patients.
The consequences of ACA on hospital revenues could be examined if payments were known for most hospitals in the United States. Actual payment Cited by: 9. Although payers increasingly report information on hospital volume and mortality from surgery, the value of these data is uncertain.
Using national Medicare data Cited by: Accidental falls are the commonest safety incidents affecting hospital inpatients and care-home residents [ 1, 2].The recent National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) report, ‘Slips Trips and Falls in Hospital’ [ 2], identified overreported falls incidents from acute, community and mental health trusts in England and Wales from / alone, (some 32% Cited by: The strongest risk factors for avoidable hospital admission are age and deprivation but ethnicity, distance to hospital, rurality, lifestyle and meteorological factors are also important, as well as access to primary care.
There is still considerable uncertainty around. FeNO is also superior to FEV1 in predicting loss of asthma control during tapering and/or withdrawal of inhaled GC therapy and is as effective, or superior to, FEV1, in predicting subsequent asthma exacerbations in patients with Th2-mediated asthma.
Lastly, FeNO may serve as a diagnostic and predictive tool in preschool children at risk for asthma. A brochure was developed titled Preventing Functional Decline in the Hospitalized Patient. The brochures were made available to all adult inpatient units throughout the hospital.
The brochures included information for the patient and families about the importance of preventing functional decline. Outcome • staff members completed the module. In his co-authored book, "Preventing Alzheimer's," he writes: "Contrary to popular belief, with current medical and scientific knowledge, the onset of Alzheimer's Disease can be delayed by.
Background Employees in contact with infectious tuberculosis (TB) patients in healthcare facilities of low-incidence countries are still at considerable risk of acquiring TB infections. However, formal precautions recommended on the protection of healthcare workers may not only vary from country to country but also within a single country.

In this chapter, we will review the body of evidence on the use of various clinical and comorbid factors, alone and/or in combination with biomarkers, on predicting rapid cognitive decline across the spectrum of cognitive impairment – defined in terms of AD progression in MCI subjects and Author: Mei Sian Chong, Tih-Shih Lee.
Nurse-led study shows a tool kit may be useful, particularly in older patients.Predicting and Preventing Asthma Exacerbations. r Hoch MD, MSCS, An asthma exacerbation involves either a slow onset of symptoms or a rapid decline in respiratory status.
