Emergency Department Patient Satisfaction Improvement
2011 President's Award for Excellence winner. Providence Health & Services. Providence Regional Medical Center Everett's project to address patient satisfaction in their emergency department (ED) was the result of the desire to increase low patient service and satisfaction scores. Through creation of staff-directed engagement teams, the program identified appropriate metrics for improvement and developed action plans to address operational and customer service issues. The results have been a win-win for ED patients and staff, and the ED at PRMCE was recently ranked in the top five percent of EDs nationwide by HealthGrades.

Passing the Baton - a practical guide to discharge planning
NHS Wales provides inpatient care to thousands of people every year. In addition there are hundreds of thousands of attendances at Accident & Emergency Departments. The profile of health policy in recent years has been to focus on reducing the delays that patients are experiencing in getting access to hospital. However, a continual theme within reviews such as the report by Derek Wanless, ‘The Review of Health and Social Care in Wales 2003’, emphasised how significant amounts of resources have been used caring for patients in hospital beds who ideally could and should have been discharged to a more appropriate setting for their needs. Even though it has been estimated that 80% of all discharges are simple in nature, it is acknowledged that providing a safe and effective discharge for every person who attends our hospitals can become complicated. Practitioners have to ensure that the specific needs of every single patient are catered for, to make sure that they can leave hospital safely and on time. Taking a proactive approach to discharge planning with every individual will have a positive impact on the causes of delayed transfers of care. To do this effectively requires careful patient assessment, planning and the cooperation of many professionals not just from health and social care, but also from other allied agencies including commercial, charitable and voluntary organisations. The challenges of making discharge safe, appropriate, timely and effective have been around for a long time. Changes in society’s expectations means that a much more sophisticated response is now required. Effective discharge can be dependent on many factors such as the need to make adjustments to the persons’ home, determining long term funding arrangements or the identification of a suitable care setting. The Change Agent Team (CAT) is based within the National Leadership and Innovation Agency in Healthcare (NLIAH). The overall aim of CAT is to work with health and social care professionals to improve the journey and experience of individuals throughout the care system.In 2007, CAT published “Six Steps from DToC to EToC – A Summary Report of the National Self Assessment of Discharge Planning in Wales”. This report identified that there is a weakness in the knowledge, skill and confidence of front line staff in managing the discharge of patients from hospital. Health and social care professionals highlighted that the increasing complexity of discharge processes, actually helping patients to leave hospital, seemed to require greater and greater involvement and leadership of key specialist staff such as Discharge Liaison Nurses. Reasons for this were broadly accepted as: The faster pace of the Ward or A&E environment • More performance pressures upon staff • Increasingly complex needs of patients • The increasing challenge of translating health and social care policy into practice Practitioners are becoming more reliant upon specialists in discharge to make discharge happen, in cases where any Practitioner could and should be able to manage the process. ‘Passing the Baton’ is the result of NLIAH working directly with health and social care professionals and can be described as many things – a toolkit, a resource file, or even a general reference guide. It is designed to provide Practitioners with the basic knowledge and information they need to play a greater role in managing the patient discharge. Whereas the learning within the Guide is intended to be useful for all Practitioners, the practical content primarily refers to adults. As such, the technical references quoted within the Guide are predominantly adult oriented. For Practitioners caring for specific groups, such as Children or Mental Health, reference should always be made to existing statutory guidance. This Guide is not designed to be read in one sitting. It has been produced by Practitioners across Wales to provide information, advice and support on all aspects of discharge. It should be used to complement and develop local tools and operational policies already in existence. The intention is to continue the development of the Guide beyond the initial publication, to ensure that it remains compliant with current policy. Part of this development will include the production of more detailed information on improving the effectiveness of discharge planning for specific groups. It is always challenging to write something that will be of practical use to everyone. Some people, who read this, may not learn anything new and for them the challenge becomes putting the skills into practice, consistently. For others such as newly qualified Practitioners, the amount of information may seem overwhelming at first. However, the Guide is designed to support the development of knowledge and skill over time.

TARN Improvement in Care Award Winner - 2017
TARN Improvements in Care Award - First Prize : Dr Charlotte Bates & Dr Jackie Gregson - Northern Trauma Network: Guidance to Improve Timeliness of C-Spine Imaging in Older Patients As part of a project to improve all aspects of the elderly trauma pathway, TARN data was used to establish that delayed diagnosis of cervical spine injury in the older person was a problem affecting both Trauma Units and Major Trauma Centres. New guidance was created to ensure fewer patients were missed, and through a combination of the new, more specific guidance and staff education, there has been a marked improvement in patient safety and service efficiency, with only a relatively small increase in service demand. The group now plan to implement these changes in guidance across the region to improve the performance of the TUs and MTCs, and will continue to audit the impact through on-going TARN submissions. The judging committee felt that this submission distinguished itself through addressing a key issue currently facing trauma care, improving care for the older trauma patient. The problem was identified well, with TARN data central to the project, and the demonstrable positive results these changes facilitated show that inadequacies in older trauma care are being addressed and dealt with.

Disability Training for Emergency Planners: Serving People with Disabilities
Please give us feedback on the content of this training by completing a brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DisabilityYouTube Your responses are greatly appreciated and will help us to evaluate this training and improve trainings in the future! Thank you. The purpose of this training is to provide emergency planners with information and best practices that will ensure the safety of people with disabilities during emergency events. Special consideration will be given to the importance of including people with disabilities and disability organizations in the planning process. People with disabilities may have functional needs that will require accommodations during and after emergency response. In your role as emergency planner, you make plans to meet the functional needs of a wide variety of people in case of an emergency. One of those groups of people, people with disabilities, constitutes a large portion of the general population. In fact, roughly one in five Americans has some kind of disability. With careful and inclusive planning and coordination of agencies, the functional needs of people with disabilities can be successfully met during emergency, disaster, and sheltering situations. This training is divided into five sections: 1. Introduction to Disability 2. Communication and Notification 3. Evacuation and Transportation 4. Sheltering and Recovery 5. Inclusive Planning for Disaster Mitigation and Response Training Aids: Additional disability resources for emergency planners, including a list of statewide and regional disability organizations, can be found at: www.go.osu.edu/emergencyplanners.

WIHI - The Next Wave of Patient Safety - Shifting the Whole Curve
"As a former health care system chief executive, I spent a lot of my time at one end of the performance curve, identifying the bad apples. With hindsight, I really wish I had spent more time tending to the whole orchard. " - IHI President and CEO Derek Feeley on the evolution of patient safety. http://www.ihi.org/wihi WIHI - The Next Wave of Patient Safety ​Date: January 26, 2017 Featuring: - Derek Feeley, President and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) - Donald Berwick, MD, MPP, FRCP, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow, IHI What are your plans to improve patient safety in 2017? Are they hospital-specific or do they extend across the continuum of care? Are they proactive or reactive? Is the work part of an overall system of safety, knitted together by an engaged staff, a thriving safety culture, and continuous learning? However you answer these questions, IHI is heading into the new year more determined than ever to help hospitals and health systems make greater gains in reducing harm to patients, anchored by a renewed focus and new framing. Who better to explain all this than IHI President and CEO, Derek Feeley, and IHI President Emeritus, Don Berwick. Derek was eager to talk about six principles that organizations can use to guide their safety work going forward. Among them: Shifting from a mindset of preventing things from going wrong to making as many things as possible go right; and inviting patients and families into the process of co-producing safety as opposed to keeping their input at arm’s length. What are some ways to translate this deepening perspective into action? How do you stay focused on patient safety when so many other performance expectations in health care demand your attention?

Healthcare's Whitewater : Physician Leadership for Transformative Change
Healthcare’s White Water: A CME curriculum that addresses Physician Burnout and Physician Leadership Development. In this video: 12 physician leaders, one of the top white water rivers in the world, and a shared desire to grow a leadership that is courageous, passionate, and sustaining. These 12 physicians leaders from 4 healthcare systems in the US, took the challenge to navigate the Gauley waters in West Virginia, while applying the learnings to help them navigate the ‘permanent white waters’ of current medicine practice and healthcare. The three day experience, combined 5 hrs. at the lower gauley, 4 and half hrs. at the Upper Gauley, and an 8 hr CME course that combined concepts from neuroscience, holistic leadership, emotional and social intelligence. As health systems wrestle with clinical integration, population health, performance improvement, and physician burnout, to drive much needed transformational change, physician leadership is crucial. The realities of modern medicine demand physician leadership more than ever. Physicians are influencers in hospital units, ER’s, OR’s, their practices, etc. Yet, At the Institute for physician integration we believe: - Physician leaders are formed, not born leaders - Physician leadership involves inner integration versus outer manipulation – the ability to combine the personal with the professional, the ability to know oneself well – one’s unique strengths and vulnerabilities, ones’ values, one’s story and how it influences one’s presence – how one shows up for particular conversations or for specific incidents. We believe that the best leadership is one where we learn a reflective leadership where we ask courageous questions of ourselves first before we expect others to follow our lead. - Physician leadership involves the ability to understand, enlist, and influence others. This is a function of creating trust, valuing and understanding how to build collaboration, and how to call out the best in people. www.physicianintegration.org

Employee May Have Right to Privacy in Facebook Post
Conceding that the employment law of social networking is underdeveloped, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey refused to dismiss an employee's invasion of privacy complaint, holding that the employee may have a right to privacy in statements posted only to Facebook "Friends." The employee in this case, who worked as a registered nurse and paramedic, was also a union representative. She claims that her employer, which provides emergency medical services, engaged in a pattern of retaliatory conduct against her, eventually culminating in her termination. As part of this retaliation, the employee alleged in her wrongful termination suit that the employer gained access to her Facebook account by coercing and intimidating a co-worker, who was a Facebook "Friend." The employee claimed that her supervisor then viewed and copied her Facebook postings. One such posting was a comment that the employee made regarding a shooting that took place at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, stating: An 88 yr old sociopath white supremacist opened fire in the Wash D.C. Holocaust Museum this morning and killed an innocent guard (leaving children). Other guards opened fire. The 88 yr old was shot. He survived. I blame the DC paramedics. I want to say 2 things to the DC medics. 1. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? and 2. This was your opportunity to really make a difference! WTF!!!! And to the other guards ... go to target practice. The implication from the post was that the paramedics should have let the assailant die at the scene. In response, the employer notified the New Jersey Board of Nursing and the New Jersey Department of Health, Office of Emergency Medical Services. The notification expressed concern with the employee's Facebook posting, which led to the employee's discharge for showing a disregard for patient safety. The employee filed a wrongful discharge suit, alleging an invasion of privacy when the employer viewed the Facebook posting. The employee alleges in her complaint that the specific posts were not set for public viewing. Rather, they were set only to be viewed by "Friends" which included co-workers. In deciding whether to dismiss the complaint, the court noted some consistency in the case law on the two ends of the privacy spectrum. On one end of the spectrum, there are cases holding that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy for material posted to an unprotected website that anyone can view. On the other end of the spectrum, there are cases holding that there is a reasonable expectation of privacy for individual, password-protected online communications. In this case, however, nether situation really applied. Instead, the employee argued that she had a reasonable expectation of privacy in her Facebook posting because her comments were disclosed to a limited number of people who she had individually invited to view a restricted access webpage. The employer argued that that the employee could not have a reasonable expectation of privacy because the comment was disclosed to dozens, if not hundreds, of "Friends." However, the complaint did not indicate how many Facebook Friends the employee had at the time the comment was made; thus, there was no indication of how many people could permissibly view the posting. Thus, the Court found that the employee had stated a plausible claim for invasion of privacy, especially given the open-ended nature of the case law. Ehling v. Monmouth-Ocean Hosp. Serv. Corp. Commentary: In this case, the federal court, applying New Jersey law, declined to dismiss a complaint that alleged an employee may have had a reasonable expectation that her Facebook posting would remain private, considering that she actively took steps to protect her Facebook page from public viewing by limiting it only to "Friends." The case will proceed for further fact-finding. For example, what if the employee did indeed have hundreds of "friends." Could there still be an expectation of privacy in comments shared with so many other people? Additionally, each person can "share" it with others, making the comments ubiquitous. Another open question would be when an employee "friends" a supervisor, an agent of the employer. Presumably, there would not be an expectation of privacy under the circumstances. September CLS 2012

MYTH #2: North Oaks makes a profit on each patient we treat. FACT: Approximately 80% of the patients at North Oaks Medical Center are covered by Medicare (government-sponsored health insurance for those 65+) and Medicaid (government-sponsored health insurance for those with lower incomes). Payments from these government health plans do not cover the cost of care provided. This is one example of uncompensated care.

Scariest Take Off I've Ever Seen - Aircraft Performance and Personal Minimums
Flight Chops CONTESTS! A new contest EVERY month; shared prizes from all our sponsors totalling over $2000! AND this month thanks to iCloth Avionics, we're including an iPad mini! I am SUPER stoked to add a prize from my aviation hero Bob Hoover: "Flying the Feathered Edge" SIGNED collectible prize pack! Please visit http://www.FlightChops.com for details! _____ This is an amazing example of how calculation theory and real life application don't always line up. Watch as a G36 Bonanza with a Tornado Alley Turbo performs a short field take off in a mountainous area, and just barley makes it out alive. The pilot Chris, learned a ton from this experience and shares an amazingly detailed analysis at the links below. Please visit them to share the lessons from his experience. Chris Palmer shared this footage with me to analyze - he is an amazing pilot from "Angle of Attack". LINKS you must visit for great post flight analysis: one to Chris' "Aviatorcast", and one to Chris' awesome article (with massive comment thread)  NOTE: please avoid "Monday morning quarter backing" Chris had to deal with enough of that back when this was first put out there. http://www.flyaoamedia.com/aviatorcast-podcast/aviatorcast-episode-4-scariest-pilot-moment-7-environment-add-ons-perfect-setup/ http://www.flyaoamedia.com/aviation/my-scariest-moment-as-a-pilot/ * AMENDMENT * to voice over: I am sorry about any confusion I may have caused regarding roles density altitude and runway length played here - maybe I should have dug deeper to get some actual numbers; but Chris, the original pilot, did not have his actual performance calculations available, so I decided based on that lack of some of the specific details, to simply avoid including any of them, and I went for a more general "start the conversation" type theme, regarding personal minimums. Essentially, I made a video motivated by the visceral reaction I had to seeing the footage and wanted to share. DISCLAIMER: I am a "weekend warrior" private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial.I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience - I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve.... Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.Feed back is invited; however, please keep it positive

What about the money to improve escalators and lifts at Charing X Hospital? Prof. Janice Sigsworth
Imperial NHS Trust 13/09/2017 - Annual General meeting “Deeply flawed hospital plans must be halted immediately” says Michael Mansfield QC Landmark report says plans threaten fundamental principles of the NHS and provide “no realistic prospect of achieving good quality accessible healthcare for all.” One of the country’s biggest hospital shake-ups is deeply flawed, likely to exacerbate a deteriorating situation, a threat to the fundamental principles of a universal NHS and should be halted immediately, according to a landmark report from the Independent Healthcare Commission chaired by Michael Mansfield QC. NHS North West London’s Shaping a Healthier Future (SaHF) programme has already seen the hugely controversial closures of two A&E departments, at Hammersmith and Central Middlesex hospitals and the closure of Ealing maternity unit. Further downgrading of Ealing hospital is planned, along with the closure and sale of the majority of Charing Cross hospital site. The Independent Commission also uncovered shocking details of spiralling management and consultancy costs. At the same time, a crisis is developing in emergency services, with GP services clearly failing to meet demand across the region, contributing to a crisis in A&E performance.

6 Steps to Developing an Emergency Action Plan for Your Facility | Seton Video
The most effective way to respond to any emergency, is to prepare for it before it even happens. Very few people have the ability to remain calm and think clearly in a crisis, so it is important to do so in advance, when you have the time to adequately plan for a wide array of workplace emergency scenarios. Any unforeseen situation that threatens your employees, customers, or the public; disrupts or shuts down your operations; or causes physical or environmental damage, is considered a workplace emergency. They can include natural disasters like floods, hurricanes and tornadoes… or man-made ones like fires, chemical spills, explosions, and outbreaks of workplace violence. In this instructive video, we outline 6 steps you can follow to help develop and implement an Emergency Action Plan for your own facility. Seton has everything you need to develop a complete plan of action. For more information, visit us online at Seton.com, or give one of our customer service experts a call today.
