Hamlet: Out of the Ashes 1994 Robert Cotter
 
22:33
This film tells the story of a dreadful fire that swept through the Imperial Food Products chicken processing plant in the early morning of September 3, 1991 in Hamlet, North Carolina. That morning, workers at the plant in Hamlet, North Carolina, smelled something burning. As they were rapidly engulfed in thick, yellow smoke, an acrid combination of melting insulation and burning soybean oil and chicken, they tried to escape but found the doors to the plant locked. Twenty-five workers died in the tragic fire, one of the worst disasters of its kind, reminiscent of the Triangle Shirt Factory fire in early 1900s New York City, where many seamstresses leapt to their deaths because stairway doors were locked. The film was written and produced by Robert Cotter and Maureen Costello and released in 1994. Cotter and Costello's film documents the plight of the Imperial Food workers and what effect this tragic event has had in their lives. Besides the fire-related deaths, 56 workers were injured in the fire with severe burns, blindness, respiratory disease from smoke inhalation, neurological and brain damage, and post-traumatic stress syndrome. Nineteen of the 25 workers killed were single mothers. Altogether, 56 children were touched by the disaster, which led to the death or serious injury of a parent, often times a mother. "It was like being locked up in hell," recalls one worker. Owner Roe pleaded guilty to 25 counts of manslaughter, while his son and another man went free as part of a plea bargain agreement. Blame for the fire has generally been attributed to various local, federal and state agencies. The plant was visited daily by the poultry inspector, who knew the plant doors were regularly locked in violation of safety codes, a violation that was never reported. In fact, the Imperial Food plant had already experienced three fire flare-ups earlier that year, but despite obvious danger, fire exits remained locked. The plant had never been inspected by North Carolina OSHA in the 11 years it had been open. The deaths prompted legislative leaders to create a special commission to make policy recommendations for tougher safety laws. The General Assembly passed a version of the commission's recommendations the following summer, giving workers in North Carolina more protections on the job. However, less than two years after the deadly fire, insurance companies and the business lobby in North Carolina got together and introduced legislation to slash compensation for injured workers. Some of the workers have become activists, determined to battle the bureaucratic injustice. In 1992, the Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Act (REDA) was enacted following the disastrous plant fire at Imperial Foods in Hamlet. REDA incorporated whistleblower protections from the Wage and Hour and the Occupational Safety and Health acts. In response the Hamlet tragedy, OSHA conducted a reevaluation of the performance of the North Carolina State Plan and a special evaluation of all other State Plans. OSHA reasserted concurrent Federal enforcement jurisdiction in North Carolina and the AFL-CIO petitioned OSHA to withdraw approval of the North Carolina State Plan. In response, North Carolina made modifications to its program. Major modifications were made to the State's occupational safety and health program enabling legislation; State funding and staffing were increased. In 1995 OSHA permitted NCOSH to resume full control. A novel about the fire, Southern Tragedy in Crimson and Yellow by was written by Lawrence Naumoff and published in 2005. It won a prize for the best novel of the year in North Carolina. A report about the fire by the NFPA is available at http://www.nfpa.org/assets/files/PDF/fihamlet.pdf . A FEMA report on the fire with ten lessons to be learned can be read at http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/publications/tr-057.pdf . The lessons included that life safety codes must be enforced, State and Federal inspectors from various departments should be cross-trained, establish a "worry free" line of communications for industry employees, the number of OSHA safety inspectors must be increased, emergency exit drills must be incorporated into industry policies. For more information or help, contact The National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH at http://www.coshnetwork.org/ National COSH is a federation of local and statewide "COSH" groups--Committees/Coalitions on Occupational Safety and Health. COSH groups are private, non-profit coalitions of labor unions, health and technical professionals, and others interested in promoting and advocating for worker health and safety.

Considerations for Preparedness
 
16:50
Planning and preparedness are the keys to dealing effectively with threats that include infectious diseases caused by SARS and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS, novel influenza viruses like H1N1, and Ebola. During outbreaks or epidemics of these emerging infectious diseases, healthcare facilities must carefully monitor the global situation as it evolves and conduct robust planning to promptly identify and safely manage a patient who may be infected and prevent further transmission. This module focuses on preparedness considerations for Ebola and how to engage a multi-disciplinary team to prepare your institution. Planning, preparedness, and practice will protect patients, visitors, and staff.
Staffing Challenges: Varying Staff Levels Relative to Volume (2009 AHRA Fall Conference)
 
08:01
Presenter: Alicia Campbell, MHA, CNMT, RT(N) from Carolinas Medical Center-Union in Monroe, NC. The current economic crisis has forced imaging managers to focus on operational excellence. Productivity plays a critical role in the financial viability of an imaging department. However, varying staff levels to volume can present many challenges. This presentation is intended for facilities that do not have tools available to them that allow them to analyze staffing levels relative to volume. The purpose of this presentation is to assist those who have just recently begun to struggle with how to monitor and increase staff productivity. A simple staffing matrix will be reviewed with the group. The presenter will discuss the challenges faced during development and implementation of the staff matrix. Tips for gaining staff buy-in and the importance of transparency and communication with staff will also be discussed. Additionally, the presenter will discuss how developing flexible schedules to create a better work-life balance can increase employee satisfaction.

Lyrics: Just gonna stand there and watch me burn End of life and all my wishes go unheard They just prolong me and don’t ask why It’s not right because this ain’t the way to die, ain’t the way to die Patient: I can’t tell you what I really want You can only guess what it feels like And right now it’s a steel knife in my windpipe I can’t breathe but ya still fight ‘cause ya can fight Long as the wrong’s done right—protocol’s tight High off of drugs, try to sedate I’m like a pincushion, I hate it, the more I suffer I suffocate And right before I’m about to die, you resuscitate me You think you’ve saved me, and I hate it, wait… Let me go, I’m leaving you—no I ain’t Tube is out, you put it right back, here we go again It’s so insane, ’cause though you think it’s good, I’m so in pain I’m more machine than man now, I’m Anakin But no advanced directive, I feel so ashamed And, crap, who’s that nurse? I don’t even know her name You lay hands on me, to prolong my life again I guess you must think that this is livin’… Just gonna stand there and watch me burn End of life and all my wishes go unheard They just prolong me and don’t ask why It’s my right to choose the way that I should die Doctor: You ever love somebody so much, you can barely see when you with ‘em That they, lay sick and dying but you just don’t wanna let ‘em Be at peace cause you miss ‘em already and they ain’t gone Beep beep, the ventilator alarms I swore I’d never harm ‘em, never do nothing to hurt ‘em Hippocratic oath primum non nocere now I’m forced just to torture ‘em They push full code, no one knows what his wishes were His sister heard him say once, “I don’t wanna be a vegetable” But no one agrees in the family, his caregiver Kate Wants him comfort care but Aunt Claire lives so far away That her guilt eats her like cancer So she answers, “Wait! I think he’ll wake” Maam, you ain’t even in the state! Palliate, relieve pain, get him home, explain Critical care? Just hypocritical when it’s so insane But they insist I shock his heart again so I persist Guess that’s why they say that love is pain. Just gonna stand there and watch me burn End of life and all my wishes go unheard They just prolong me and don’t ask why It’s my right to choose the way that I should die The way that I should die

2010 Critical Care Ground Award Winner - WakeMed Health & Hospitals/Mobile Critical Care Services
 
02:25
2010 Critical Care Ground Award of Excellence Sponsored by Braun Industries, Life Star Rescue, and Rick Bell For excellence in a dedicated critical care ground service WakeMed Health & Hospitals/Mobile Critical Care Services Raleigh, NC Mobile Critical Care Services (MCCS) at WakeMed Health and Hospitals is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. MCCS has grown from a department that operated 1 ambulance with 7 employees and had 229 cardiac transport patients, in 1990 to today- as a tiered system that provides care to all age groups with dedicated teams 24 hours a day, utilizing 21 ambulances, 133 employees and has more than 17,500 patient transports annually. MCCS has had remarkable achievements of note since its inception, for example; protocols were established across the system to provide medical direction to its EMTs, paramedics, respiratory therapists and RNs, thus expanding the team’s scope of practice; policies and guidelines were introduced for patient and crew safety, including minimal staffing guidelines, vehicle operations procedures, maximum on-duty time limits, and other requirements; finally, the ambulance configuration was upgraded to a quad cab style ambulance that provides crews, patients and family members with greater safety, complete with drive and backup cameras and “mission specific” safety equipment and mounts. Mobile Critical Care Services looks to the future, with continuing plans for expansion and growth to allow for 20 more years and beyond of safe ground critical care transport. Congratulations Mobile Critical Care Services!

OSU Medical Center is among only 21 hospitals in the country named to the magazines elite Honor Roll, which demonstrates a hospitals excellence in at least six specialties. This is the 17th consecutive year the magazine has named OSU Medical Center one of Americas Best Hospitals.

Other Ohio State specialties included on the list are ear, nose & throat, diabetes and endocrinology, gynecology, kidney disease, orthopedics, respiratory disorders, rehabilitation and urology. The continual presence of Ohio State in the magazines annual survey and this years inclusion on the prestigious Honor Roll is a direct reflection of faculty, staff and university teamwork, according to Dr. Steven G.

The Americas Best Hospitals issue, considered by many consumers and health care industry analysts as a leading indicator of quality care and performance, is compiled using data collected annually from nearly 5,000 U.S. hospitals. This year, only 174 scored high enough in measures of quality such as mortality and patient volume to be ranked in any specialty. Hospitals selected for the magazines rankings are institutions of varying sizes around the country. Measurements such as staffing levels, reputation and technology also are used to compile the final lists.

Lawmakers Unveil Education Savings Account Act
 
03:52
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Legislation that would provide education options to families across Oklahoma was unveiled today at a press conference at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Under House Bill 3398, by state Reps. Jason Nelson and Tom Newell, low-income public school students would be able to receive a portion of the state aid dedicated to their education and use it to expand their education options. "This is an exciting and timely proposal that will help address one of our state's most pressing and challenging problems -- the effects of poverty on our families," said Nelson, R-Oklahoma City. "Two thirds of the births of children in our state are paid for by Medicaid. More than 60 percent of the public school students in our state are eligible for free or reduced price lunches. Educators I've talked to say that students living in poverty present the greatest challenge in our education system. This bill would begin to help these children and help schools with one of their greatest challenges." "If you are a parent who has the means to pay for education alternatives, you have true freedom over how your child is educated," said Newell, R-Seminole. "If you have a lower income, your options are more limited. This legislation is about expanding those options for low-income families." Under the legislation, students eligible for free or reduced price lunch under federal guidelines would be eligible to receive 90 percent of the funding they would have generated at their resident public school through the school funding formula. Students in families whose household income is up to 1.5 times the threshold for free or reduced price lunch will be eligible to receive 60 percent of the amount they would have generated through the formula. Students in families whose household income is between of 1.5 times to 2 times the threshold will be eligible to receive 30 percent of what would have been generated through the formula. The education savings account money could be used for tutoring, virtual school, higher education courses and private schools, Nelson said. "There is not a private school in every community," Nelson said. "But there are alternative options to be found in every community." The president of a non-profit Oklahoma City school for impoverished and homeless children applauded the legislation. Susan Agel, president of Positive Tomorrows, said the legislation could provide some funding for her students. Positive Tomorrows serves children who are homeless or in really difficult living situations. "The Oklahoma City public school district estimates that there are about 2,000 homeless children in that school district," Agel said. "There are a number of them that are really living in some difficult situations. Those are the children that we can do the most for. So far this year, we've turned away about 50 kids. We've done this because we have a lack of space in our building and because of staffing considerations. "Every child that we take relieves some pressure on the burdened public school system who has to be all things to all children. We can take children who need some special care and we can take care of those kids and in the end we can save everybody a lot of money." Dr. Cris Carter, the superintendent of Oklahoma City Catholic Schools, said the Catholic Church has historically been an option for immigrants and the poor. "We believe we have much to offer families who desire not only strong academics, but also a community rooted in a message of love and hope," Carter said. "Representative Nelson's previous legislation for special needs students has already begun to bear fruit. I have witnessed its impact most significantly at Good Shepherd Catholic School at Mercy, our school for children with autism." Lauren Marshall, member of the National Board on Public School Options and Tulsa resident, said parents need options. "There are not enough school options right now for parents," Marshall said. "This legislation will expand those options and we are grateful for Representative Nelson's work on behalf of parents." Pam Newby, executive director of Special Care, also spoke in support of the legislation. "This bill is incredibly important to our families," Newby said. "Most of our families are single parents with children who have respiratory issues, or learning disabilities, or autism. They desperately need an education plan that is not one-size-fits-all. Education should not be one-size-fits-all."

BSN Headline News for November 5, 2012
 
08:01
Today on BSN Headline News we'll hear about Bon Secours' fall open enrollment...we'll talk about the Bon Secours value 'integrity'...and about National Home Care and Hospice month... But first let's get a quick update on what we know about how Hurricane Sandy has effected our colleagues in New York. The following is what we knew when we went to production on Friday... Several of our facilities are still on generators....but are hopeful of returning to full power soon. No significant building damages have been reported so far... The gas shortage in the area is a problem, as you might guess, for home care. Along those lines, staffing was initially an issue because of the loss of mass transportation and lack of gas...but is improving. Because of transfers from other hospitals census is very strong. Bon Secours Charity CEO Phillip Patterson reported on Thursday November 1st, "We have weathered the storm thus far and our employees are ALL to be commended for their extraordinary efforts and valiant support. Each campus...activated its command center early on (last) Monday and they have been operational throughout the storm and continue now. We are seeing the aftermath of the storm in nursing home transfers, some injuries due to flying debris and fallen trees. Power outages and fires as a result of transformers being blown...continue. The state activated its highest alert to hospitals as some hospitals in the Manhattan area are evacuating patients and local nursing homes across our area are reaching critical need for oxygen." As we learn more, the Health System Office Communications Department will keep the communication leaders across the system updated via email. If you are interested in helping, consider donating through the American Red Cross by texting "REDCROSS" to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your cell phone bill. Or can donate through the Salvation army by texting "STORM" to 80888 and a $10 donation to be added to your cell phone bill. These are the quickest and easiest ways...and preferrable ways...to donate to the Hurricane Sandy clean up efforts. Finally, please keep our colleagues in your thougths and prayers as they face these challenging times. Now to the news... Fall open enrollment is here. Starting today and running through November 16, 2012. But what is Fall Open Enrollment? And didn't we just go thougth this? Well, Fall Open Enrollment is for Flexible Spending Accounts or FSAs...both health care FSAs and Dependent care FSAs and Voluntary benefits. And this year the IRS has changed the Health Care FSA maximum from $5000 down to $2500...dependent care FSAs remain at $5000. There is also action required with regard to Express Scripts and we would encourage everyone to read the details in your Open Enrollment Package sent to your home. By the way, if you have not yet received your Fall Open Enrollment package, please contact your local human resources representative. Also, during Fall Open Enrollment you can choose other voluntary benefits like...Universal Life with a Long Term Care Rider, Critical Illness Insurance, Accident Insurance, Legal Insurance and a Computer Purchasing program. All information contained in your Fall Open Enrollment package...so read it cover-to-cover and pick what is right for you. And don't forget about the Wellness Incentives program. The Wellness Incentives program is a chance for you to earn up to $900 in wellness credits toward your 2014 medical Plan costs. The Bon Secours Fall Open Enrollment is going on now through November 16, 2012. Look for your Fall Open Enrollment package today. In other news...integrity. We all know that integrity is one of the 8 Bon Secours values. But just what do we mean when we talk about integrity? Well, Bon Secours believes Integrity implies a highly-developed sense of ethical behavior, consistent with that expected of an individual or organization with great moral character. Integrity is having our actions in harmony with our convictions and values. This integration of behavior with convictions and values applies to each of us as individuals, as well as collectively as an organization. Integrity behavioral norms include... -Put our mission and values into practice. -Evaluate new plans and projects for consistency with our mission. -Speak the truth. -Respond with candor in all situations. -Live up to our commitments. -Be honest in all our business dealings. -Welcome and address constructive criticism. The Bon Secours values help guide our day to day activities. It is our responsibility as Bon Secours employees to understand their meanings and apply them in our day to day activities. Next week...Stewardship. Finally, did you know that November is National Home Care and Hospice month?

Virtual Critical Care | Health Sciences North
 
02:29
Virtual Critical Care (VCC) at Health Sciences North (HSN) in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada uses the latest in videoconferencing technology and electronic medical records sharing to connect HSN with smaller Critical Care units and Emergency Departments at 22 other hospitals across northeastern Ontario. Launched in May of 2014, VCC is the first critical care model of its kind in Canada. Under the VCC model, a team of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians, specially trained nurses and ICU respiratory therapists based at HSN are available for around-the-clock consultations for critically ill patients at participating hospitals. Other allied health professionals such as dietitians and pharmacists are also available for consultation during scheduled hours. The goal of VCC is to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill patients across Northeastern Ontario, and potentially avoid the transfer of patients out of their local hospitals, away from their families and support systems. Since being launched in May of 2014, VCC has been used for 227 patients, with an additional 355 follow-up visits, for a total of more 19362 VCC care minutes. Thanks to VCC, 80 patients avoided a medical transfer by air ambulance, at an approximate saving of $1,360,000 to the health care system. The Virtual Critical Care Unit received the 2015 Minister’s Medal Honouring Excellence in Health Quality and Safety, presented by Health Quality Ontario. Video produced by the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care. View the full list of winners for the 2015 Minister's Medal: http://health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/transformation/minister_medal.aspx

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I: Deadly Addictions
 
56:46
The President has declared the opioid epidemic a national emergency. Overdoses involving heroin and pharmaceutical opioids killed more people last year than guns or car accidents, and are doing so at a pace faster than the H.I.V. epidemic at its peak. Has this widespread use of opioids and heroin taken hold in our Islands? Fifteen years ago we were the crystal meth capital of the country. Have we made any progress in shedding that dubious distinction?

Digital Patient-Safety Dashboard Improves Patient Care
 
04:36
Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, in partnership with HP, has developed a new real-time patient status system that uses data from electronic medical records to better represent patient status, replacing the handwritten whiteboards currently found in many hospital nursing units. The dashboard also improves compliance and is designed to be usable in other hospitals in the U.S. and around the world. Packard Children's staff worked with researchers from HP to apply the immense amount of data available inside a patient's electronic chart. The new dashboard system uses red, yellow or green lights to signify the level of urgency with which attention is needed from medical staff to help prevent certain life-threatening complications in the intensive care unit.

Mayor de Blasio Appoints Daniel A. Nigro as Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department
 
41:41
Mayor de Blasio Appoints Daniel A. Nigro as Commissioner of the New York City Fire Department 32-year FDNY veteran and former chief of department to lead New York's Bravest Administration pledges commitment to firefighter safety, department diversity, and swift response times across the five boroughs Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced his appointment of Daniel Nigro to serve as New York City's fire commissioner. A 32-year veteran of the FDNY and former chief of department, Nigro brings decades of operational and administrative experience to the department. Mayor de Blasio charged Nigro with ensuring the safety of New York City's residents and firefighters, increasing diversity among the ranks, and maintaining the department's commitment to swift FDNY response times in neighborhoods across the city. A well-respected leader who has held every uniformed rank in the FDNY, Nigro returns to the department with years of first-hand knowledge, deep operational familiarity, and extensive leadership experience from his time with the FDNY. Appointed chief of department on the afternoon of September 11, 2001, Nigro led the FDNY through search, rescue and recovery operations at Ground Zero, and provided operational leadership for FDNY and EMS response units and personnel. Nigro was also instrumental in merging the cultures and operations of FDNY and EMS into an exemplary medical response and care program, which resulted in a substantial increase in the diversity of department staff. About Daniel A. Nigro Raised in Bayside, Queens, where his father was a FDNY captain, Daniel A. Nigro has spent his life serving New York City's fire department. Nigro began his career as a firefighter in 1969, and served as a lieutenant, captain and battalion chief in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, before his promotion to assistant to deputy fire commissioner in 1988. Nigro has held positions as chief of uniformed personnel, chief of health services, battalion and deputy chief, deputy assistant chief of operations, chief of emergency medical service, and citywide tour commander, among others, during his years with the FDNY. In 1999, Nigro was appointed chief of operations, where he maintained preparedness, staffing and availability of units for fire and emergency response, and instituted a program similar to CompStat to measure and oversee key areas of accountability. On September 11, 2001, Nigro was appointed chief of department upon the death of Chief Peter J. Ganci Jr. in the collapse of the WTC North Tower. As the highest ranking uniformed member of the department and its chief operations officer, Nigro was instrumental in guiding the department through its loss after September 11, and assisted in providing plans to move the department toward better training and equipment to respond to all levels of emergency. Nigro is a member of Friends of Firefighters, September 11th Families Association, Italian Language Inter-Cultural Alliance, and Columbia Association, among others. Most recently, he has provided consultation to fire departments on fire department management. Nigro holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Baruch College. He currently lives in Whitestone, Queens, with his wife Lynn. The couple has two daughters and three grandchildren. Building 12 FDNY Fire Academy 1 Randall's Island,New York
