Treated Casework by Case Systems
HAI's constitute a major public health problem in the United States. Five to ten percent of hospitalized patients are affected annually. Two million infections, 90,000 deaths, adding 4.5 to 5.7 billion dollars in health care costs. According to a published SHEA 2010 study on evaluating cleaning 65,000 surfaces were tested for cleaning levels in various hospitals, longterm care facilities, dialysis centers, and ICU's. Only 34 of environmental surfaces were properly cleaned. Develop an immediate action plan to obtain the cleanest healthcare environment for your facility. Case systems can help you with protection builtin.
CASE SYSTEMS case work offers protection with AEGIS Microshield technology on your casework in counter tops for nurse's stations, patient rooms examines exam rooms and procedure rooms, pharmacy centers, lunch and break rooms and clinical labs. The casework is protected from harmful bacteria and microbes that cause staining, deterioration and odors to furniture and equipment. This technology uses a nonleaching, longlasting, organosaline technology that bonds permanently to the surface and remains durable for the life of the surface. The AEGIS microshield technology is a registered antimicrobial with the EPA. For over three decades.
This technology driven advancement has been found in healthcare settings. It's proven experience in health care settings includes surgical nonwovens 20 yrs lab coats and clean room clothing 10 yrs surgical towels, wound dressings, and surgical drapes which are also FDA approved. Cast liners, doctor's coats, cubicle curtains, blood pressure cuffs, counter tops and hardware. The builtin protection works with health care facilities cleaning protocol. This is how it works the first part is the siline base the siline base is the anti microbials anchor. It is anchored by covalent bonds which are formed readily through hydrolysis.
Reactions that bond our antimicrobial permanently to almost any surface and allows for crosslinking and polymerization with other molecules. The second part of the molecule it's centrally located, positively charged, nitrogen. This positive nitrogen plays an important role in the active nature of the antimicrobial. Cell membranes of microbes are negatively charged. When in close proximity the microbes are drawn in towards the active surface of the antimicrobial and killed. The third segment is the edge that leads the blow to offending microbes. This long molecular chain acts like a sword that pierces the cell membrane of all.
Midmark Clinical Solutions Vitals Workflows
Vitals are the beginning of the patient caregiver interaction, providing critical information related to changes in patient health and playing an important role in treatment decisions. While the vitals process has not changed significantly in 30 years, the integration of electronic medical records, new technologies and automated devices have made a significant impact on the overall efficiency of the process. Midmark incorporates these advances into products and processes that enhance patientcaregiver interaction and provide innovative and efficient workflow solutions. Let's explore the various vitals workflow options. The traditional vital signs workflow is a common setup for physician offices.
With paperbased patient record systems. Patient weight and height are captured manually in the hallway. Elderly, disabled and overweight patients may need extra time for transitions. Shoes and clothes may also require temporary storage which can cause delays with patient flow in the hallway. For traditional vital signs, weight and height are measured in the hallway reducing patient privacy and comfort. The patient is then escorted to the exam room and directed to a side chair or to the exam table possibly causing transition delays. If the blood pressure cuff is manual and not attached to the wall,.
The patient is typically seated in a chair next to the work surface for paperbased patient records. The traditional workflow requires an average of more than three minutes from the time the patient is called. The Midmark triage nook is a semi private space designed to assess and capture all vital signs. A curtain provides visual privacy. The nook may include a scale, stadiometer, automated blood pressure or pulse device. All vitals are taken in the vitals triage nook. Patients are then escorted to the exam room and directed to a side chair.
Or exam table for capturing additional health data. The nook is still a shared space, however, and can lead to queuing in the hallway. Family members accompanying patients may also create congestion. There may be a single station or multiple triage nook stations supporting multiple exam rooms. The triage nook workflow, when compared with the traditional, saves 30 seconds by implementing automated vitals. The EMR linear workflow is set up to assess and capture all vital signs in the exam room. Hallway congestion is minimized, and with seamless connectivity to the EMR,.
Transcription errors are eliminated. With this Midmark workflow, weight and height are captured in the exam room. The patient is then seated in a side chair to support proper posture next to a work surface or workstation to gather patient vitals and health information. All patientrelated health information can be discussed during this process with complete privacy. The EMR linear workflow, when compared with the triage nook, saves 22 seconds in conveyance time by moving all vitals to the exam room. With increases in age, disability and obesity, safe patient handling is becoming central to a safe patient workflow.
The EMR safe patient handling workflow captures all vital signs in the exam room with minimal patient transfer. The exam table has an integrated scale, while an automated vital signs device mounted to the wall and a mobile EMR workstation provide flexibility and maximize access to the patient. Before the patient is seated on a low entry exam table, height is captured with a wallmounted stadiometer. The patient is directed to the exam table to support proper posture. Weight, temperature, pulse and blood pressure are captured via the integrated scale and automated vital signs device. All patient related information can be.
Blood Pressure What You Need To Know Michelle Tuzzolino, PAC
My name is Michelle Tuzzolino and I'm the Physician Assistant at New Jersey Associates in Medicine. I regularly see both routine an emergent cardiac condition under the supervision our staff cardiologist Dr Malloy as well as routine primary care under the supervision of our staff internist Dr Capitelli and Dr Saffa. Through a team approach to your health care I can prescribe medication as well as treatment plans both in our office as well as at Valley Hospital. Many people are unaware that they have high blood pressure due to a general.
Lack of symptoms. It is important that we diagnose and treat high blood pressure early to prevent many serious consciences. As blood is pumped throughout the body, it creates pressure within the arteries this is referred to as blood pressure. A blood pressure reading is usually given as two numbers the first number indicates the pressure during the heart's contraction it is called Systolic. The second number indicates the pressure when the heart is at rest. This is called diastolic. Optimal blood pressure is less than 120 over 80. important that you seek medical attention if you develop symptoms such as.
Portable Vital Signs Monitor 5508000I With printer and TFT display
Constant vital monitor 550800I of Quirumed, works with the function of electrocardiogram ECG, noninvasive blood pressure NIBP and SPO2. It is a TFT 12.1 color screen and it has both audible and visual alarm. This equipment measures blood pressure using Oscillometry, with the possibility of systolic reading, Diastolic and mean through the manual, automatic and STAT mode. It has sleeves for obese, adults, pediatric and neonatales. The resulted data can be printed by the builtin printer The accessories included in this kit consist of an ECG cable, a temperature sensor, a pediatric and neonatal probe adapter,.
Up we are now in the room a in my lab that is particularly designated for what we might call pain testing over here this is my thermo sensory analyzer and the heat itself excuse me is delivered through this thermode okay the thermode would be positioned on a person's arm perhaps maybe on their knee depending upon you know the body site that we're interested in stimulating but but once it's placed and then essentially I hit a few buttons over here on my laptop what can happen is that.
The heat will start at maybe a warm non painful baseline and then it will gradually ascend in increasing temperature and I might tell an individual to you click a button on this mouse whenever they first feel the stimulus to become painful so I often say that first sensation ouch click the button and that's a threshold sort of measure I might ask them to go past when they first feel pain right to when they can no longer tolerate the pain when they're no longer willing to keep going at that point and then click the.
Button and what we have there's an index that their heat pain tolerance another modality one that I am particularly fond of is this piece of equipment here right and essentially what this is this is called a hoke hanson rapid cuff inflator and there are two pieces to this to this device the the bottom piece is an air compressor so easy enough when I flip the button it just gets ready to compress the air through this tube through this stuff back here the top piece is a dial.
When I can actually set back to inflate to a particular level of millimeters of mercury where your typical blood pressure cuff might be 180 millimetres of mercury we often set this to be 240 and this piece of equipment over here as you can see when I pull the lid off of it has circulating cold water and just exactly how cold that water is a function of what I set it to be it may be that I am looking to use or to elicit the most painful stimulus possible.
Yet safely and it may be something like a four degrees Celsius cold water bath alright whenever you're ready how would you rate the intensity in your hand right now It really hurts eighty how about the unpleasantness of it 95. Alright so we've got about a minute 25 under our belts ok. I thought about taking it out a long time ago. Alright well keep in mind that you can do it an time alright I'll keep going for a while How would you rate it now 95. it's up there huh Probably 95 in unpleasantness.
Nurse Career Information Nursing Tools
I'm Jeanette Welker. I'm a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, in Eugene, Oregon, practicing at Oregon Optimal Health. I'd like to tell you about the tools, that a Nurse Practitioner would use. The basic tools a Nurse Practitioner uses are, clinical experience, their educational background and training, as well as diagnostic skills. In order to bring those skills together, typical diagnostic tools would be, a stethoscope, an otolaryngol scope. In addition, a Nurse Practitioner Health Care Provider, would utilize appropriate lab work, and diagnostic tests, such as xrays, radiology. In addition, I practice a more functional, antiaging type.
Of medicine ,where I use body and pedal analysis, which is a small device that measures the resistance, and reactance, to calculate how much lean body mass, your body would have, as well as fat mass, and how much water is in your body, and is it in the inside or the outside of your cell Utilizing this, I'm able to accurately predict your phase angle, which is a measure of health within your body, and help you tailor a nutritional lifestyle program, specifically to your body, and your body's biochemical individuality.
