Though often undertaken to provide patients with specialized care, interhospital transfer (IHT) is associated with worse outcomes for select patients. Certain aspects of the transfer process have been suggested as contributors to these outcomes. We performed a retrospective cohort study including patients ≥ 18 years who underwent IHT to a tertiary care hospital between January 2005 and September 2013. We examined the association between "weekend" transfer, "nighttime" transfer, "time delay" between transfer acceptance and arrival, and admission team "busyness" on the day of transfer, and patient outcomes, including transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU) within 48 hours and 30-day mortality...

Design, Setting, and Participants: A serial, cross-sectional analysis of the US nationally representative data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) among children aged 5 through 11 years (2001-2016); adolescents, 12 through 19 years (2003-2016); and adults, 20 years or older (2003-2016)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to develop and validate the Cancer Health Literacy Scale (C-HLS). METHODS: The framework of the C-HLS is based on the Levels of Prevention model. The scale items were developed according to Nutbeam's 3 constructs of HL...

Over 50% of patients who rapidly ascend to extreme altitudes develop various symptoms known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), which rarely can be life threatening. It is unclear why some patients are more susceptible to AMS than others. Our objective was to determine whether patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a risk factor for AMS. Subjects who had hiked to altitudes above 10,000' (∼3,000 meters) on the John Muir Trail in California were recruited. Participants completed a questionnaire and 2-physician adjudication was performed in regard to AMS status...

Managing complex neurological patients challenges new nurses with minimal experience, which can interfere with their ability to relate empathetically to their patients.

The hospital collects quarterly patient satisfaction data using the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Provider and Systems. In the third and fourth quarters of 2015, the unit's patient satisfaction scores had declined significantly and remained low, in particular, the score for "how often did nurses listen carefully to you...
