Using special fiber optics in the ceiling, the facility recreates a special daylight and starry sky atmosphere in the building.

  • Nursing journal: late-term abortion a “distressing clinical event” of a “complex nature”

    From an article in The Journal of Clinical Nursing: Second trimester terminations require the woman concerned to go through an induced labour, the result of which is a fetus in a very human form. This event requires sensitive management as it is has the potential to cause a great deal of distress for the women involved due to the psychological and physical impact of the procedure. However, health professionals involved can also find this a distressing clinical event due to the complex nature of the management and care required. ANNETTE D.

    Almost 100 deaths occurred under the watch of an Italian nurse accused of murdering dozens of patients, health officials said. The figure is several times higher than that of other nurses at the same hospital. Police were initially investigating 38 suspect deaths at a hospital in Lugo di Romagna, near Ravenna, after an autopsy found poison in the system of an elderly woman in the care of Daniela Poggiali, a 42-year-old nurse from the nearby town of Faenza. Detectives have now extended their probe to as many as 96 deaths that occurred during Poggiali's shifts in a 12 months period....

    Since March, the world had watched Ebola spread through West Africa, infecting not only residents but also the health workers tasked with stopping the outbreak. During this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that hospitals were prepared, and resolved to stop the virus if it made its way over the Atlantic. But health care workers have said otherwise; that hospitals are actually far from prepared — the virus’ spread to the Dallas nurses proved that. Over 18,000 nurses in Northern California feel similarly, and are planning a two-day strike this week to show it. The...

Always work in pairs. Assess the patient's ability to sit still. Dispose of the syringe immediately. Wash your gloved hands under 0.5% chlorine solution. Label and spray. Drop the tube in a bag. Bag it again, spray it again. Spray the outside of the second bag. Walk to the laboratory area of the hospital. Just before you hand off the bag, spray it one more time....

    A new survey conducted by the National Nurses Union shows US hospitals may not be adequately prepared to handle Ebola patients, should the virus continue to spread. Out of the 2,200 nurses who responded to the union's questionnaire, 85 percent reported that their hospitals had not provided education on Ebola. 76 percent said their institution had no policy for how to admit and handle patients potentially infected with the virus. More than a third claimed their hospitals didn't have enough safety supplies, including eye protection and fluid resistant gowns. The survey results were announced on Sunday, just after the Centers...

    Nurses in America say they are unprepared to deal with Ebola patients arriving from abroad as a growing sense of panic sweeps the US. The warning comes after it emerged Thomas Eric Duncan, the country's first case, had told health workers he had recently been in Liberia yet was still sent home from a hospital in Texas with nothing more than painkillers and antibiotics. However, health officials insist that American hospitals are ready for such patients and on Friday White House advisers tried to reassure the nation that an outbreak was extremely unlikely.

    NORFOLK Two former Sentara Healthcare nurse's aides improperly accessed the personal information of about 3,700 patients as part of an elaborate identity theft scheme that netted more than $116,000, according to hospital officials. Sentara Healthcare's chief privacy officer, Greg Burkhart, announced the scope of the data breach Friday after the second of the two men pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to conspiracy to defraud the government. Although court documents indicate fewer than 250 people fell victim to the scheme, Burkhart said federal investigators have forwarded to the hospital evidence the two men had information on thousands of patients.

    An NHS watchdog has imposed a recruitment freeze on foreign nurses amid fears that workers could have faked documents to get jobs in British hospitals. Nursing regulators admit they do not know how many immigrant workers could have fraudulently secured frontline health positions after faking evidence of their qualifications, experience or identity. The freeze means that around 160 nurses are being prevented from filling vacancies in already stretched NHS units, while the Nursing and Midwifery Council conducts the urgent investigation into its own failings. The astonishing disclosure comes after a week in which the regulator was heavily criticised by MPs.
