Framework for Real-Time All-Hazards Global Situational Awareness  

SciTech Connect

Information systems play a pivotal role in emergency response by making consequence analysis models based on up-to-date data available to decision makers. While consequence analysis models have been used for years on local scales, their application on national and global scales has been constrained by lack of non-proprietary data. This chapter describes how this has changed using a framework for real-time all-hazards situational awareness called the Energy Awareness and Resiliency Standardized Services (EARSS) as an example. EARSS is a system of systems developed to collect non-proprietary data from diverse open content sources to develop a geodatabase of critical infrastructures all over the world. The EARSS system shows that it is feasible to provide global disaster alerts by producing valuable information such as texting messages about detected hazards, emailing reports about affected areas, estimating an expected number of impacted people and their demographic characteristics, identifying critical infrastructures that may be affected, and analyzing potential downstream effects. This information is provided in real-time to federal agencies and subscribers all over the world for decision making in humanitarian assistance and emergency response. The system also uses live streams of power outages, weather, and satellite surveillance data as events unfold. This, in turn, is combined with other public domain or open content information, such as media reports and postings on social networking websites, for complete coverage of the situation as events unfold. Working with up-to-date information from the EARSS system, emergency responders on the ground could pre-position their staff and resources, such as emergency generators and ice, where they are most needed.

International physical protection self-assessment tool for chemical facilities.  

SciTech Connect

This report is the final report for Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) Project No.130746, International Physical Protection Self-Assessment Tool for Chemical Facilities. The goal of the project was to develop an exportable, low-cost, computer-based risk assessment tool for small to medium size chemical facilities. The tool would assist facilities in improving their physical protection posture, while protecting their proprietary information. In FY2009, the project team proposed a comprehensive evaluation of safety and security regulations in the target geographical area, Southeast Asia. This approach was later modified and the team worked instead on developing a methodology for identifying potential targets at chemical facilities. Milestones proposed for FY2010 included characterizing the international/regional regulatory framework, finalizing the target identification and consequence analysis methodology, and developing, reviewing, and piloting the software tool. The project team accomplished the initial goal of developing potential target categories for chemical facilities; however, the additional milestones proposed for FY2010 were not pursued and the LDRD funding therefore was redirected.

5.2 FY14 Focus Area Self-Assessments 0913  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

AFRD Focus Area Self-Assessments Selection of 2014 Focus Areas AFRD identified two Focus Areas that will be evaluated as part of the ES&H Self- Assessment process for Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14): Focus Area 1. Compressed Gas and Cryogen Safety This Focus Area was recommended by the AFRD ES&H Operations Committee and approved by the Division Director because of potential impact on safety of personnel and to evaluate compliance with requirements. Compressed gas and/or cryogens are used in most AFRD technical areas. The safe handling of compressed gas and cryogens is most closely associated with the 4th ISM Core Function, performing work within controls. A search of the Lessons Learned/Best Practices Database reveals three LBNL Lessons. Two of them are related to a 2013 injury at the ALS from losing control while handling

Self-imposed self-assessment program at a DOE Nuclear Facility  

SciTech Connect

The Nuclear Materials and Technology (NMT) Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has implemented a performance-based self-assessment program at the TA-55 plutonium facility. The program was conceptualized and developed by LANL`s internal assessment group, AA-2. The management walkaround program fosters continuous improvement in NMT products and performance of its activities. The program, based on experience from the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations, is endorsed at the site by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Environment, Safety, and Health (ES&H) personnel and by the Defense Nuclear Facility Safety Board. The self-assessment program focuses on how work is actually performed rather than on paperwork or process compliance. Managers critically and continually assess ES&H, conduct of operations, and other functional area requirements.

CS2SAT: THE CONTROL SYSTEMS CYBER SECURITY SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL  

SciTech Connect

The Department of Homeland Security National Cyber Security Division has developed the Control System Cyber Security Self-Assessment Tool (CS2SAT) that provides users with a systematic and repeatable approach for assessing the cyber-security posture of their industrial control system networks. The CS2SAT was developed by cyber security experts from Department of Energy National Laboratories and with assistance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The CS2SAT is a desktop software tool that guides users through a step-by-step process to collect facility-specific control system information and then makes appropriate recommendations for improving the system’s cyber-security posture. The CS2SAT provides recommendations from a database of industry available cyber-security practices, which have been adapted specifically for application to industry control system networks and components. Each recommendation is linked to a set of actions that can be applied to remediate-specific security vulnerabilities.

Determinants of Hospital's Financial Liquidity  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of the articles is to identify key factors that may affect the level of hospital's liquidity ratio. We’ve posed four research hypotheses, assuming that, the level of financial liquidity in hospitals depends on several factors (number of beds, annual income per bed, profitability ratios, debt ratio). We’ve found that: 1) there is a positive relationship between debt ratio and liquidity and profitability ratio and liquidity 2) the relationship between the size of the hospital and the financial liquidity is not statistically significant. In the study we’ve use statistical tools: Pearson's correlation coefficient, T-Student's test with Cohran-Cox's correction.

Competition on the Hospital Sector  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article is about the role of competition in the health care sector. It concentrates on competition amongst hospitals for fixed budgets. The literature supports the argument that with fixed prices hospitals will compete on quality dimensions, and quality of output will increase. Under variable prices, competition can lead to chiseling of output quality. The evidence, at least with respect to the UK, shows that competition need not have an adverse effect on equity of access to health care.

Using Same-Hospital Readmission Rates to Estimate All-Hospital Readmission Rates  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Background Since October of 2012, Medicare's Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program has fined 2,200 hospitals a total of $500 million. Although the program penalizes readmission to any hospital, many institutions can only track readmissions to their own hospitals. We sought to determine the extent to which same-hospital readmission rates can be used to estimate all-hospital readmission rates after major surgery. Study Design We evaluated 3,940 hospitals treating 741,656 Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries undergoing CABG, hip fracture repair, or colectomy between 2006 and 2008. We used hierarchical logistic regression to calculate risk- and reliability-adjusted rates of 30-day readmission to the same hospital and to any hospital. We next evaluated the correlation between same-hospital and all-hospital rates. To analyze the impact on hospital profiling, we compared rankings based on same-hospital rates with those based on all-hospital rates. Results The mean risk- and reliability-adjusted all-hospital readmission rate was 13.2% (SD 1.5%) and mean same-hospital readmission rate was 8.4% (SD 1.1%). Depending on the operation, between 57% (colectomy) and 63% (CABG) of hospitals were reclassified when profiling was based on same-hospital readmission rates instead of on all-hospital readmission rates. This was particularly pronounced in the middle 3 quintiles, where 66% to 73% of hospitals were reclassified. Conclusions In evaluating hospital profiling under Medicare's Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program, same-hospital rates provide unstable estimates of all-hospital readmission rates. To better anticipate penalties, hospitals require novel approaches for accurately tracking the totality of their postoperative readmissions.

Capital budgeting practices in hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We interviewed chief financial officers from hospitals and healthcare systems in Michigan regarding selected capital budgeting practices that have not been previously considered in the literature. Results revealed a variety of approaches in the development and deployment of capital budgets. Most healthcare systems used a blend of board and department-initiated input into budget development, usually with interaction between the two. The majority of healthcare systems had flexibility in the deployment of their capital budgets over time. Standard methods of project evaluation were employed by healthcare CFOs, but few used the most sophisticated tools. A host of constraints, including certificate-of-need laws and internal, mission-based motivations uniquely affect capital budgeting of not-for-profit healthcare systems. Clearly, future research will be need to understand why organisations have selected capital budgeting practices and the extent to which selection and use of capital budgeting practices matters in the efficiency and viability of healthcare systems.

...Hospital Association, and consumer groups such as the American Association of Retired Persons, initiated an effort now called the Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) to fill this gap. Under the HQA, hospitals nationwide report data to the CMS on indicators of the quality of care for acute myocardial infarction... This study examined hospitals' performance on standardized measures of the quality of care for acute myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, and pneumonia. The quality of care varied among hospitals. Hospitals' performance on the measures for myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure was not closely correlated with performance on the pneumonia measure, suggesting that efforts to monitor the quality of care may need to include a wide range of medical conditions.

Value increasing business model for e-hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper developed a business value increasing model for electronic hospital (e-hospital) based on electronic value chain analysis. From this model, 58 hospital electronic business (e-business) solutions were developed. Additionally, this paper investigated the adoption patterns of these 58 e-business solutions within six US leading hospitals. The findings show that only 36 of 58 or 62% of the e-business solutions are fully or partially implemented within the six hospitals. Ultimately, the research results will be beneficial to managers and executives for accelerating e-business adoptions for e-hospital.

These data were collected with the 2007 Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS). See the 2007 CBECS Large Hospital Building Methodology Report for details. Why are you publishing estimates only for large hospitals and not the rest of the commercial building population? A majority of the 2007 CBECS buildings were sampled from a frame that used a less expensive experimental method to update the 2003 frame for new construction. After careful analysis, EIA determined that the buildings sampled from this experimental frame were not representative of the commercial building population and therefore the 2007 CBECS sample as a

Hospital ventilation standards and energy conservation: chemical contamination of hospital air. Final report  

SciTech Connect

In an era of increasing energy conservation consciousness, a critical reassessment of the validity of hospital ventilation and thermal standards is made. If current standards are found to be excessively conservative, major energy conservation measures could be undertaken by rebalancing and/or modification of current HVAC systems. To establish whether or not reducing ventilation rates would increase airborne chemical contamination to unacceptable levels, a field survey was conducted to develop an inventory and dosage estimates of hospital generated airborne chemical contaminants to which patients, staff, and visitors are exposed. The results of the study are presented. Emphasis is on patient exposure, but an examination of occupational exposure was also made. An in-depth assessment of the laboratory air environment is documented. Housekeeping products used in survey hospitals, hazardous properties of housekeeping chemicals and probable product composition are discussed in the appendices.

Included here is data pertaining to the reference building type Hospital for each of the 16 climate zones, and each of three construction categories: new construction, post-1980 construction existing buildings, pre-1980 construction existing buildings.The dataset includes four key components: building summary, zone summary, location summary and a picture. Building summary includes details about: form, fabric, and HVAC. Zone summary includes details such as: area, volume, lighting, and occupants for all types of zones in the building. Location summary includes key building information as it pertains to each climate zone, including: fabric and HVAC details, utility costs, energy end use, and peak energy demand.In total, DOE developed 16 reference building types that represent approximately 70% of commercial buildings in the U.S.; for each type, building models are available for each of the three construction categories. The commercial reference buildings (formerly known as commercial building benchmark models) were developed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in conjunction with three of its national laboratories.Additional data is available directly from DOE's Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) Website, including EnergyPlus software input files (.idf) and results of the EnergyPlus simulations (.html).

Memorial Hospital The original Kiowa County Hospital was destroyed in the May 2007 tornado. The new hospital's design team took one of the most energy- intensive building types and designed a first-of-its kind energy-efficient hospital, while still meeting functional and safety requirements. Completed in March 2010, the hospital is built to achieve the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED ® ) Platinum designation. The 50,000-square-foot building includes 15 acute-care beds, rural health and specialty clinics, an emergency department with two trauma rooms, physical/occupational therapy and radiology departments, a laboratory, and other support areas. The new hospital is projected to be 32% more energy efficient

Integrating hospital information systems: a bottom-up approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The growing complexity of hospital information systems has prompted information systems managers to seek applicable solutions for integrating their systems. While many successful applications of information systems have been introduced and implemented in the hospital environment, the integration of heterogeneous applications in existing, multi-vendor, computing environments into a cohesive hospital-wide information system has proved to be complicated and difficult to accomplish. This paper discusses systems integration in hospitals and presents a conceptual framework for bottom-up integration of hospital information systems. The scope of the proposed framework is the integration of stand-alone clinical, administrative and financial information elements of a hospital into a unified system environment with a central medical data warehouse.

Benchmarking and Self-Assessment in the Wine Industry  

SciTech Connect

Not all industrial facilities have the staff or theopportunity to perform a detailed audit of their operations. The lack ofknowledge of energy efficiency opportunities provides an importantbarrier to improving efficiency. Benchmarking programs in the U.S. andabroad have shown to improve knowledge of the energy performance ofindustrial facilities and buildings and to fuel energy managementpractices. Benchmarking provides a fair way to compare the energyintensity of plants, while accounting for structural differences (e.g.,the mix of products produced, climate conditions) between differentfacilities. In California, the winemaking industry is not only one of theeconomic pillars of the economy; it is also a large energy consumer, witha considerable potential for energy-efficiency improvement. LawrenceBerkeley National Laboratory and Fetzer Vineyards developed the firstbenchmarking tool for the California wine industry called "BEST(Benchmarking and Energy and water Savings Tool) Winery". BEST Wineryenables a winery to compare its energy efficiency to a best practicereference winery. Besides overall performance, the tool enables the userto evaluate the impact of implementing efficiency measures. The toolfacilitates strategic planning of efficiency measures, based on theestimated impact of the measures, their costs and savings. The tool willraise awareness of current energy intensities and offer an efficient wayto evaluate the impact of future efficiency measures.

Although manufacturers must produce high quality products and/or services (to remain in business), the healthcare industry's failure to offer quality care can lead to life threatening consequences. The healthcare industry is undergoing a rapid process of reengineering that will lead to an integration of clinical and management technologies. This will require a radical redesign of hospital systems to create seamless healthcare delivery processes and a leadership with a strong customer orientation. To promote the concept of management of medical technology, a process that incorporates a multidisciplinary approach may help overcome the preconceived negative feelings regarding management of the hospital's technology.

Delayed Time to Defibrillation after In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

...causes of cardiac arrest among adults during a hospitalization are ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia from primary electrical disturbances or cardiac ischemia.– In contrast to cardiac arrests due to asystole or pulseless mechanical activity, survival from cardiac arrests... The relationship between time to first defibrillation attempt and success of resuscitation was investigated in a cohort of 6789 patients in the National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. Patients for whom the time to defibrillation was more than 2 minutes had a significantly reduced likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation, survival to 24 hours, and survival to hospital discharge, as well as poorer neurologic and functional outcomes.

Evaluation of miscellaneous and electronic device energy use in hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Miscellaneous and electronic loads (MELs) consume about one-third of the primary energy used in US buildings, and their energy use is increasing faster than other end-uses. In healthcare facilities, 30% of the annual electricity was used by MELs in 2008. This paper presents methods and challenges for estimating medical MELs energy consumption along with estimates of energy use in a hospital by combining device-level metered data with inventories and usage information. An important finding is that common, small devices consume large amounts of energy in aggregate and should not be ignored when trying to address hospital energy use.

Hospital registration waiting time reduction through process redesign  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The registration process is the first process that patients interact with hospitals. The quality of experience in registration will form the perceptions for hospitals. The waiting time is an important performance metric for the registration process. In this paper, a rigorous Lean Six Sigma approach is used to analyse an existing registration process and the root causes for the long average waiting time are identified. Lean operation principles are used to redesign the registration process. After the implementation, a drastic reduction in the average waiting time is achieved and sustained.

Hospital Energy Benchmarking Guidance - Version 1.0  

SciTech Connect

This document describes an energy benchmarking framework for hospitals. The document is organized as follows. The introduction provides a brief primer on benchmarking and its application to hospitals. The next two sections discuss special considerations including the identification of normalizing factors. The presentation of metrics is preceded by a description of the overall framework and the rationale for the grouping of metrics. Following the presentation of metrics, a high-level protocol is provided. The next section presents draft benchmarks for some metrics; benchmarks are not available for many metrics owing to a lack of data. This document ends with a list of research needs for further development.

Older people's experiences of medicine changes on leaving hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Few qualitative studies have explored older patients' perspectives on medicine changes that resulted from a stay in hospital. Objective To explore how older people aged ?75 years, who had recently been discharged from hospital to their own home, understood and managed any changes to their medicines. Methods Forty people aged ?75 years were recruited from two internal medicine wards. Participants were included if they took four or more prescription medicines at admission, experienced a medicine change and were discharged to their own home. Participants were interviewed in person at home. Interviews were semi-structured and were recorded, transcribed verbatim, coded using NVivo, and analyzed thematically. Results Participants experienced a median of four medicine changes per person and sixteen participants were unaware of the exact changes and the reasons for them. Some participants had concerns about their medicine changes. Twenty-nine participants could not recall anyone talking about their medicine changes just prior to them being discharged. The majority of participants trusted the decisions the hospital doctors made regarding their medicines and many participants spoke as if it was not their place to question doctors about their medicines. Conclusion Clear and understandable explanations of medicine changes are needed for older people on discharge from hospital. Health professionals should also be aware that older patients might not think it is acceptable for them to ask direct questions of staff members.

The APP strategies selected in SCM of the hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper uses a real case study of Taiwan's Middle Alliance of Department of Health (TMADH) to explore the selection of suitable aggregate production planning (APP) strategies in hospital supply chain management (SCM). A simulation method was used to simulate the six different APP's strategies to further evaluate the results of multiple objectives, including total cost (TC), average service level (SL) and average changes in production rate (PR). This paper uses the TOPSIS and fuzzy linguistic methods to compare the different weights of different objectives to obtain the optimal APP strategy selection sequence for decision-makers in hospital SCM. The results of this study show that decision-makers only need to apply historical data in APP strategy planning to obtain the superior solution; in other words, decreasing the complexity of the decision process in selecting an APP strategy and SCM production policy which is the primary contribution of this paper.

Rebuilding it Better: Greensburg, Kansas, Kiowa County Memorial Hospital (Brochure) (Revised)  

Energy.gov (U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)) Indexed Site

Kiowa County Memorial Hospital Kiowa County Memorial Hospital The original Kiowa County Hospital was destroyed in the tornado and rebuilt green. In fact, the hospital's design team took one of the most energy-intensive building types and designed a first-of-its kind energy-efficient hospital, while still meeting functional and safety requirements. The 50,000 square-foot building includes 15 acute-care beds, rural health and specialty clinics, an emergency department with two trauma rooms, physical/occu- pational therapy and radiology departments, a laboratory, and other support areas. The new hospital in Greensburg is projected to achieve more than 40% energy savings when compared to a hospital built to standard code thanks to features such as an on-site wind turbine.

Hospital remedies architect's lighting overdesign for $22k: installs current limiters  

SciTech Connect

St. Luke's Hospital in Racine, Wisconsin is spending $22,000 to install current limiters in the fluorescent lamps of a new wing after finding that the architectural firm overdesigned the lighting fixtures so much that the hospital's lighting expenses were 50% higher than necessary. The hospital expects an 8-month payback on the current limiters. The hospital's corridor lighting reached 45-55 footcandles (fc), when only three fc are required for emergency lighting and 15 for corridor lighting. Representatives of the architectural firm argued that the design did not exceed state wattage requirements.

To date, much of the focus has been on readmissions after hospitalization for medical conditions, in which discharge planning and care coordination are often suboptimal... This analysis of Medicare data suggests that 13% of patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days after major surgery. Readmission rates vary across hospitals and correlate with surgical volume and surgical mortality, two measures of surgical quality.

Terrorism, rugby, and hospitality: She?ll be right  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In 2011, international attention was focused on New Zealand, host of the Rugby World Cup (RWC 2011), which brought 133,200 visitors to New Zealand over a three-month period. This exploratory study, undertaken before the event, investigates the attitudes of hotel managers and staff as they prepared to host spectators, rugby teams, and media personnel. The aim of the study was to determine preparedness for an attack, and assess attitudes and approaches to risk management in relation to terrorism. Interview data collected from senior hospitality managers revealed a distinctly laissez faire approach to security, which is partly explained by Hofstede?s (1984) low uncertainty avoidance category for New Zealand. This attitude is reputedly common in New Zealand, where it is proudly expressed as "she?ll be right". It is hoped that this study will bring attention to the weak security measures in New Zealand, which would have been insufficient protection for life and property, had a serious terrorist attack been planned.

Chapter 7 - The Role of Clinical Engineers in Hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The appropriate deployment of technology contributes to the improvement in the quality of healthcare, the containment of cost, and to increased access to services. The traditional role of the clinical engineer repairing and maintaining devices has evolved to now include the equally important role of supporting and optimizing the use of healthcare technology. This chapter is an overview of the activities undertaken by clinical engineers. These activities are grouped under two headings: supporting and advancing care, and healthcare technology management. Clinical engineering activity within hospitals should be balanced to include both the management of the healthcare technology itself and also the support for the clinicians who use the technology in clinical practice. The supporting and advancing care and healthcare technology management roles can be considered the pillars of any clinical engineering service. However, it is important to recognize and acknowledge at all times that these roles are complementary and are tightly integrated in practice. With knowledge of the engineering, physics, and system science underpinning electro-medical devices and systems, and experience gained in working collaboratively in the clinical environment, clinical engineers play an important role in ensuring positive outcomes for patients arising from the use of technology and reducing negative ones.

Gout, allopurinol intake and clinical outcomes in the hospitalized multimorbid elderly  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Increased serum uric acid has been considered a cardiovascular risk factor but no study has assessed its relation with hospital mortality or length of stay. On the basis of data obtained from a prospective registry, the prevalence of gout/hyperuricemia and its association with these and other clinical parameters was evaluated in an Italian cohort of elderly patients acutely admitted to internal medicine or geriatric wards. Methods While the prevalence of gout was calculated by counting patients with this diagnosis hyperuricemia was inferred in patients taking allopurinol at hospital admission or discharge, on the assumption that this drug was only prescribed owing to the finding of high serum levels of uric acid. A series of clinical and demographic variables were evaluated for their association with gout/hyperuricemia. Results Of 1380 patients, 139 (10%) had a diagnosis of gout or were prescribed allopurinol. They had more co-morbidities (7.0 vs 5.6; P gout/allopurinol intake. Moreover, this combined event was associated with an increased risk of adverse events during hospitalization (OR 1.66, 95% CI 1.16–2.36), but not with the risk of re-hospitalization, length of hospital stay or death. Conclusions Gout/allopurinol intake has a high prevalence in elderly patients acutely admitted to hospital and are associated with renal and cardiovascular diseases, an increased rate of adverse events and a high degree of drug consumption. In contrast, this finding did not affect the length of hospitalization nor hospital mortality.

The impact of medicare capital prospective payment regulation on hospital capital expenditures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Our study examines the impact of the capital prospective payment system (CPPS), implemented by Medicare in 1991, on capital expenditures and cost-effective behavior of non-proprietary hospitals. As noted in the paper, we use audited financial statement data for a large national sample of hospitals. Univariate analyses demonstrate a statistically significant decline in capital expenditures in the years following the CPPS regulation without significant changes in relative aggregate operating expenses. These preliminary findings suggest that CPPS induces some cost-effective behavior by hospital managers. Ordinary least-squares (OLS) regressions indicate that capital expenditures before and after CPPS are differently affected by the changes in most explanatory variables. Further OLS regressions indicate that high-cost (low-cost) hospitals decrease (increase) capital expenditures following CPPS, once other factors are controlled for. Managerial accounting implications for hospitals include the effect of the regulation on capital budgeting decisions. Greater accounting disclosure may be necessary so that alternative modes of coping with the regulation can be discerned. Policymakers and regulators should also be aware that although reductions in capital expenditures may have favorable short-term effects of reducing health care costs, a potentially negative public health impact may result if capital expenditures continue to decrease.

Hospital efficiency management: the just-in-time and Kanban technique  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The importance of the supply system to a hospital means that the implementation of new stock management systems is a significant need. The main aim of this study is to provide an empirical demonstration of efficient management results obtained by the use of the just-in-time (JIT) and Kanban tools. This research deals with the design and experimentation of innovative automatic supply models, such as the JIT system, as applied to ward materials. The first application of the proposed procedure was implemented in the City Hospital of Padua. The second application was carried out in the Religious Hospital of Turin, where the implementation of the Kanban method has a particular development. With the introduction of small investments (modular cabinets and 'intelligent' trolleys), the quantities and the volumes of stored products, out-of-date medicines, order errors, and unnecessary picking operations largely decreased.

Comprehensive Self-Assessment and Upgrade Program (CSAUP) performance objectives and criteria  

SciTech Connect

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has placed strong emphasis on a new way of doing business patterned on the lessons learned in the nuclear power industry after the accident at Three Mile Island Unit 2. The new way relies on strict adherence to policies and procedures, a greatly expanded training program, and much more rigor and formality in operations. Another key element is more visible oversight by upper management and auditability by DOE. Although the Chemical Technology Division (Chem Tech) has functioned in a safe manner since its beginning, the policies and methods of the past are no longer appropriate. Therefore, in accordance with these directives, Chem Tech is improving its operational performance by making a transition to greater formality in the observance of policies and procedures and a more deliberate consideration of the interrelationships between organizations at ORNL. This transition to formality is vitally important because both our staff and our facilities are changing with time. For example, some of the inventors and developers of the processes and facilities in use are now passing the torch'' to the next generation of Chem Tech staff. Our facilities have also served us well for many years, but the newest of these are now over 20 years old All have increasing needs of refurbishment and repair, and some of the older ones need to be replaced. This procedure, based on the lessons learned in the nuclear industry, will enhance Chem Tech's operational performance in some important ways, while maintaining the special factors that have allowed the Chem Tech staff to be creative and successful in the RD D activities.

Quality site seasonal report: Cherokee Indian Hospital, SFBP 4058, December 1984 through April 1985  

SciTech Connect

The active solar Domestic Hot Water (DHW) and space heating system at the Cherokee Indian Hospital was designed and constructed as part of the Solar in Federal Buildings Program (SFBP). This retrofitted system is one of eight of the systems in the SFBP selected for quality monitoring. The purpose of this monitoring effort is to document the performance of quality state-of-the-art solar systems in large federal building applications. The hospital serves the Qualla Reservation of the Cherokee Indian Tribe in Cherokee, North Carolina, near the eastern entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Solar energy is used to preheat domestic hot water (the cafeteria is the principal load) and for space heating. The hospital is expected to have a normal year-round occupancy of 200 people (patients, medical and maintenance personnel) with some 2775 expected visitors per year. The drainback solar system has 320 Owens-Illinois evacuated-tube collectors with a gross area of 5517 square feet. Solar energy is stored in a 6335-gallon storage tank. Solar energy from storage is supplied to a 700-gallon DHW preheat tank through a heat exchanger in the storage tank, and directly to heat exchangers in the heating ducts. Auxiliary energy is supplied by two large oil-fired boilers. Performance of the system at the Cherokee Indian Hospital during the period December 1984 through April 1985 are reported.

Letter to the Editor : Rapidly-deployed small tent hospitals: lessons from the earthquake in Haiti.  

SciTech Connect

The damage to medical facilities resulting form the January 2010 earthquake in haiti necessitated the establishment of field tent hospitals. Much of the local medical infrastructure was destroyed or limited operationally when the Fast Israel Rescue and Search Team (FIRST) arrived in Haiti shortly after the January 2010 earthquake. The FIRST deployed small tent hospitals in Port-au-Prince and in 11 remote areas outside of the city. Each tent was set up in less than a half hour. The tents were staffed with an orthopedic surgeon, gynecologists, primary care and emergency care physicians, a physician with previous experience in tropical medicine, nurses, paramedics, medics, and psychologists. The rapidly deployable and temporary nature of the effort allowed the team to treat and educate, as well as provide supplies for, thousands of refugees throughout Haiti. In addition, a local Haitian physician and his team created a small tent hospital to serve the Petion Refugee Camp and its environs. FIRST personnel also took shifts at this hospital.

The development of differences in hospital costs accross income groups in Finland from 1998 to 2010  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective To quantify differences in hospital costs between socioeconomic groups and the development over time. Methods Register data on somatic specialised hospital admissions for patients aged between 25 and 84 in Finland in 1998–2010 were used with income data individually linked to them. The cost of an admission was calculated by multiplying the number of a patient's inpatient days by the inpatient day cost of the patient's DRG. We calculated age-standardised admission costs per resident and per user as well as costs per inpatient day and concentration indices separately for men and women. Results Hospital admission costs reduced with increasing income. The difference between the extreme income quintiles was more than 50% throughout the study period, and this difference widened. However, the cost per inpatient day was more than 20% higher in the highest income group. The differences between income groups were the most prominent in disease categories involving surgery. Conclusions The growth between socioeconomic groups in hospital costs is presumably mainly due to increasing differences in morbidity. More attention needs to be paid to prevention of health inequalities and access to and content of primary care among low-income groups in order to decrease the need for hospitalisations.

Evaluation of AFBC co-firing of coal and hospital wastes  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this program is to expand the use of coal by utilizing CFB (circulating fluidized bed) technology to provide an environmentally safe method for disposing of waste materials. Hospitals are currently experiencing a waste management crisis. In many instances, they are no longer permitted to burn pathological and infectious wastes in incinerators. Older hospital incinerators are not capable of maintaining the stable temperatures and residence times necessary in order to completely destroy toxic substances before release into the atmosphere. In addition, the number of available landfills which can safely handle these substances is decreasing each year. The purpose of this project is to conduct necessary research investigating whether the combustion of the hospital wastes in a coal-fired circulating fluidized bed boiler will effectively destroy dioxins and other hazardous substances before release into the atmosphere. If this is proven feasible, in light of the quantity of hospital wastes generated each year, it would create a new market for coal -- possibly 50 million tons/year.

Sonoma State Hospital, Eldridge, California, geothermal-heating system: conceptual design and economic feasibility report  

SciTech Connect

The Sonoma State Mental Hospital, located in Eldridge, California, is presently equipped with a central gas-fired steam system that meets the space heating, domestic hot water, and other heating needs of the hospital. This system is a major consumer of natural gas - estimated at 259,994,000 cubic feet per year under average conditions. At the 1981 unit gas rate of $0.4608 per therm, an average of $1,258,000 per year is required to operate the steam heating system. The hospital is located in an area with considerable geothermal resources as evidenced by a number of nearby hot springs resorts. A private developer is currently investigating the feasibility of utilizing geothermally heated steam to generate electricity for sale to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The developer has proposed to sell the byproduct condensed steam to the hospital, which would use the heat energy remaining in the condensate for its own heating needs and thereby reduce the fossil fuel energy demand of the existing steam heating system. The geothermal heating system developed is capable of displacing an estimated 70 percent of the existing natural gas consumption of the steam heating system. Construction of the geothermal fluid distribution and collection system and the retrofits required within the buildings are estimated to cost $1,777,000. Annual expenses (operation and maintenance, insurance, and geothermal fluid purchase) have been estimated to be $40,380 per year in 1981 dollars. The proposed geothermal heating system could then be completely paid for in 32 months by the savings in natural gas purchases that would result.

Respiratory hospitalizations of children and residential exposure to traffic air pollution in Jerusalem  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Although exposure to traffic-related air pollution has been reported to be associated with respiratory morbidity in children, this association has not been examined in Israel. Jerusalem is ranked among the leading Israeli cities in transport-related air pollution. This case–control study examined whether pediatric hospitalization for respiratory diseases in Jerusalem is related to residential exposure to traffic-related air pollution. Cases (n = 4844) were Jerusalem residents aged 0–14 years hospitalized for respiratory illnesses between 2000 and 2006. These were compared to children admitted electively (n = 2161) or urgently (n = 3085) for non-respiratory conditions. Individual measures of exposure included distance from residence to nearest main road, the total length of main roads, traffic volume, and bus load within buffers of 50, 150, and 300 m around each address. Cases were more likely to have any diesel buses passing within 50 m of their home (adjusted odds ratios = 1.16 and 1.10, 95% confidence intervals 1.04–1.30 and 1.01–1.20 for elective and emergency controls, respectively). Our findings indicated that older girls (5–14) and younger boys (0–4) had increased risks of respiratory hospitalization, albeit with generally widened confidence intervals due to small sample sizes. Our results add to the limited body of evidence regarding associations between diesel exhaust particles and respiratory morbidity. The findings also point to possible differential associations between traffic-related air pollution and pediatric hospitalization among boys and girls in different age groups.

Carotid intima-media thickness is associated with incidence of hospitalized atrial fibrillation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective Carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) is a measure of arterial thickening and a risk predictor for myocardial infarction and stroke. It is unclear whether IMT also predicts atrial fibrillation (AF). We explored the association between IMT and incidence of first AF hospitalization in a population-based cohort. Methods IMT was measured in 4846 subjects from the general population (aged 46–68 years, 60% women) without a history of AF, heart failure or myocardial infarction. The Swedish in-patient register was used for retrieval of AF cases. IMT was studied in relation to incidence of AF. Results During a mean follow-up of 15.3 years, 353 subjects (181 men, 172 women, 4.8 per 1000 person-years) were hospitalized with a diagnosis of AF. After adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors, the hazard ratio (HR) for incidence of AF was 1.61 (95% confidence interval (CI): 1.14–2.27) for 4th vs. 1st quartile of IMT in the common carotid artery. This relationship was also independent of occurrence of carotid plaque. The results were similar for IMT in the bifurcation. Conclusion Carotid IMT was independently associated with incidence of hospitalized AF in this study of middle-aged subjects from the general population. The results suggest that arterial thickening can predict future AF.

Has the National Health Insurance improved the inequality in the use of tertiary-care hospitals in Korea?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground To improve financial protection against catastrophic illness, the Korean government expanded the benefit coverage of the National Health Insurance (NHI) for cancer patients in 2005. This paper examined whether the policy has reduced income-inequality in the use of tertiary care hospitals. Methods We evaluated the effect of the policy on income-inequalities in outpatient visits and inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals, based on triple difference estimators. Using nationwide claims data of the NHI from 2002 to 2010, we compared cancer patients as a treatment group with liver disease and cardio-cerebrovascular disease as control groups and the lower-income with the highest-income group. Results Before the introduction of the policy, lower-income cancer patients utilized less inpatient and outpatient services in tertiary care hospitals than high-income patients did. After the benefit coverage was expanded, while the incidence and total number of inpatient admissions to tertiary care hospitals increased among cancer patients compared with liver diseases, lower-income cancer patients experienced a greater increase than those of higher-income did compared with both diseases. The use of outpatient services increased more in cancer patients than those of both diseases; however, the gap between the highest- and the lowest-income rarely decreased, except the incidence of visits when compared to liver disease. Conclusion Our findings indicated that the expanded NHI benefits coverage partially improved income-related inequalities in inpatient admissions to tertiary-care hospital, but not in outpatient visits.

Sensitivity of profitability to working capital management: a study of Indian corporate hospitals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Working capital management almost always determines the ability of a firm to earn profit. Efficiency with which a firm handles working capital ensures prosperity while neglect would spell danger for the very survival of the firm. The study focuses on the impact of working capital management on profitability of selected Indian corporate hospitals. The time span is ten years from 1996 to 2006. The results of regression analysis point out that the current ratio, cash turnover ratio, proportion of current assets to operating income and leverage have a negative influence on profitability. Stepwise regression analysis has identified seven prominent variables that significantly influence profitability. Path analysis reveals that 'quick ratio' has the highest direct effect on profitability, while 'current ratio' has the least direct effect.

Resistencia de Staphylococcus aureus a los antibióticos en un hospital de la orinoquia colombiana  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenIntroducción El objetivo de este estudio de cohorte retrospectivo fue analizar la resistencia de Staphylococcus aureus a los antibióticos en el Hospital Departamental de Villavicencio, centro de mediana y alta complejidad, entre 2005 y 2009. Materiales y métodos Se analizaron los resultados de los estudios microbiológicos de los pacientes con cultivo positivo para S. aureus. No se hizo ninguna intervención. La variable de estudio fue la resistencia a la meticilina y el desenlace, la resistencia a los antimicrobianos. Resultados Se tamizaron 29.451 estudios de microbiología y se encontraron 976 aislamientos de S. aureus, los cuales se analizaron para determinar su resistencia a los antibióticos por el método de microdilución en caldo. El 49,6% de ellos (484) fueron clasificados como resistentes a la meticilina; se encontró un mayor grado de resistencia múltiple, especialmente para gentamicina (25,0% Vs. 2,9%), ciprofloxacina (25,1% Vs.2,4%), clindamicina (29,4% Vs.4,1%) y eritromicina (31,0% Vs.1,7%), y menor, para trimetoprim/sulfametoxazol (11,8% Vs.4,1%). Aunque era de esperarse que la resistencia simultánea para la vancomicina fuera muy baja, se encontraron algunas cepas intermedias y resistentes, pero este resultado no se puede analizar adecuadamente debido a que estas cepas no se remitieron a un laboratorio de referencia para pruebas de confirmación. La resistencia a la tetraciclina, aun en las cepas sensibles a la meticilina, fue alta. No se identificó ninguna cepa resistente al linezolid. No se realizaron estudios para evaluar la resistencia a la tigeciclina. Conclusiones La resistencia de S. aureus a la meticilina es frecuente también en esta institución hospitalaria de la orinoquia co lombiana. La resistencia múltiple es mayor en S. aureus resistente a la meticilina, especialmente a la gentamicina, la ciprofloxacina y la clindamicina. Cuando S. aureus es sensible a la meticilina, también se observa un alto grado de sensibilidad a estos antibióticos. Los hallazgos de sensibilidad a la ciprofloxacina y a la clindamicina en presencia de resistencia a la meticilina, sugieren la posibilidad de cepas asociadas a la comunidad en Villavicencio, al igual que en otras ciudades de Colombia, lo cual amerita estudios posteriores para confirmarlo. AbstractObjective Analyze the antimicrobial resistance patterns of Staphylococcus aureus at a hospital in Villavicencio, Colombia from 2005 to 2009. Design Retrospective cohort study Setting : Villavicencio Departamental Hospital, a second and third level care center Target population: Patients’ microbiological records showing positive strains for S. aureus were analyzed. Interventions None Variable Methicillin resistance Outcomes Antimicrobial resistance Results Nine hundred and seventy six strains of S. aureus were isolated from 29,451 microbiological screened samples, and their antimicrobial resistance pattern was analyzed by standard micro-dilution broth tests. 49.6% strains were resistant to methicillin, and their co-resistance was higher mainly to gentamycin (25%), ciprofloxacin (25.1%), clindamycin (29.4%) and erythromycin (31.0), but lower to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (11.8%). Although co-resistance to vancomycin was supposed to be low, some intermediate range and resistant isolates were found, but this statement cannot be established because they were not confirmed at a referenced laboratory. Tetracycline resistance was high even for methicillin sensitive stains. No resistance to linezolid was identified. Resistance to tigecycline was not evaluated. Conclusions S. aureus resistance to methicillin is also common at the target hospital in the Colombian Orinoco region. Co-resistance is higher particularly to gentamycin, ciprofloxacin and clindamycin in methicillin resistant strains. High sensitivity to these antimicrobials is evidenced when S. aureus is also sensitive to methicillin. Some findings related to sensitivity to ciprofloxacin and clindamycin in the presence of methicillin resistance suggest the possibility of community-associated stra

Professional competence, management capabilities and customer satisfaction: the case of the Italian Public Hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The study starts with some remarks concerning the culture and the role of the service management within the Italian Public Hospital (IPH). A first analysis reveals little attention to the development of service and managerial culture. This is characterised by a low presence of functions relative to service coordination, management and control. More particularly, three problematic areas can be identified by focusing respectively on personnel motivation, ability to face uncertainties, modalities of management and control. Therefore, in the diagnosis of the difficulties of a service supply, a single element or problem rarely proves to be the root cause. Generally, we get better results if we analyse problems in terms of a vicious circle in which many different factors influence each other.

Fuzzy FMEA application to improve purchasing process in a public hospital  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is one of the well-known techniques of quality management that is used for continuous improvements in product or process designs. While applying this technique, determining the risk priority numbers, which indicate the levels of risks associated with potential problems, is of prime importance for the success of application. These numbers are generally attained from past experience and engineering judgments, and this way of risk assessment sometimes leads to inaccuracies and inconsistencies during priority numbering. Fuzzy logic approach is preferable in order to remove these deficiencies in assigning the risk priority numbers. In this study, a fuzzy-based FMEA is to be applied first time to improve the purchasing process of a public hospital. Results indicate that the application of fuzzy FMEA method can solve the problems that have arisen from conventional FMEA, and can efficiently discover the potential failure modes and effects. It can also provide the stability of process assurance.

Evaluation of the food safety management system in a hospital food service operation toward Listeria monocytogenes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The unique aspects of a hospital environment, such as the multitude of dietary needs and thus the variety of meals to be served and incoming (raw) materials to be used, challenge the development and application of appropriate control and assurance measures to guarantee food safety. Besides, Listeria monocytogenes is considered a risk for most food service operations producing and serving ready-to-eat foods. Therefore the food safety management system of a hospital food service operation has been evaluated toward L. monocytogenes with an extensive questionnaire in the preset of this case study. In addition, 49 samples of food products and 145 environmental samples were taken and analyzed for L. monocytogenes to verify the implemented control measures. From this case study, it becomes clear that incoming (raw) materials, produced final products and their immediate supply to patients/consumers are high risk situations. This was demonstrated by the presence of L. monocytogenes in six incoming (raw) materials (n = 19) and one final product (n = 9). These risky situations are in need to be mitigated by the implementation of proper control measures, e.g. intensified supplier control, low storage temperatures, cleaning and disinfection to control cross-contamination. However major improvements can be made on the hygienic design of equipment and facilities and on the level of the sampling design. In terms of assurance activities, such as setting up a sampling plan, only a basic level was obtained for the validation and verification of their food safety management system. This case study illustrates that the combination of data from the questionnaire together with data of the sampling result in an overview on the performance of the current food safety management system and that major non-compliances and possibilities for improvement in the system can be defined.

Evaluation of AFBC co-firing of coal and hospital wastes. Technical report, January 1989--August 1990  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this program is to expand the use of coal by utilizing CFB (circulating fluidized bed) technology to provide an environmentally safe method for disposing of waste materials. Hospitals are currently experiencing a waste management crisis. In many instances, they are no longer permitted to burn pathological and infectious wastes in incinerators. Older hospital incinerators are not capable of maintaining the stable temperatures and residence times necessary in order to completely destroy toxic substances before release into the atmosphere. In addition, the number of available landfills which can safely handle these substances is decreasing each year. The purpose of this project is to conduct necessary research investigating whether the combustion of the hospital wastes in a coal-fired circulating fluidized bed boiler will effectively destroy dioxins and other hazardous substances before release into the atmosphere. If this is proven feasible, in light of the quantity of hospital wastes generated each year, it would create a new market for coal -- possibly 50 million tons/year.

Changes of Natriuretic Peptides Predict Hospital Admissions in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure: A Meta-Analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Objectives The goal of this study was to explore the association between changes in B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro–B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) plasma levels and risk of hospital admission for heart failure (HF) worsening in patients with chronic HF. Background The relationship between BNP and NT-proBNP plasma levels and risk of cardiovascular events in patients with chronic HF has been previously demonstrated. However, it is unclear whether changes in BNP and NT-proBNP levels predict morbidity in patients with chronic HF. Methods The MEDLINE, Cochrane, ISI Web of Science, and SCOPUS databases were searched for papers about HF treatment up to August 2013. Randomized trials enrolling patients with systolic HF, assessing BNP and/or NT-proBNP at baseline and at end of follow-up, and reporting hospital stay for HF were included in the analysis. Meta-regression analysis was performed to test the relationship between BNP and NT-proBNP changes and the clinical endpoint. Sensitivity analysis was performed to assess the influence of baseline variables on results. Egger's linear regression was used to assess publication bias. Results Nineteen trials enrolling 12,891 participants were included. The median follow-up was 9.5 months (interquartile range: 6 to 18 months), and 22% of patients were women. Active treatments significantly reduced the risk of hospital stay for HF worsening. In meta-regression analysis, changes in BNP and NT-proBNP were significantly associated with risk of hospital stay for HF worsening. Results were confirmed by using sensitivity analysis. No publication bias was detected. Conclusions In patients with HF, reduction of BNP or NT-proBNP levels was associated with reduced risk of hospital stay for HF worsening.

An indoor radon survey of the X-ray rooms of Mexico City hospitals  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents the results of measurements of indoor radon concentrations in the X-ray rooms of a selection of hospitals in the metropolitan area of Mexico City. The metropolitan area of Mexico City is Mexico's largest metropolitan area by population; the number of patients requiring the use of X-rays is also the highest. An understanding of indoor radon concentrations in X-ray rooms is necessary for the estimation of the radiological risk to which patients, radiologists and medical technicians are exposed. The indoor radon concentrations were monitored for a period of six months using nuclear track detectors (NTD) consisting of a closed-end cup system with CR-39 (Lantrack Registered-Sign ) polycarbonate as detector material. The indoor radon concentrations were found to be between 75 and 170 Bq m{sup -3}, below the USEPA-recommended indoor radon action level for working places of 400 Bq m{sup -3}. It is hoped that the results of this study will contribute to the establishment of recommended action levels by the Mexican regulatory authorities responsible for nuclear safety.
