Uso de la teoría de gestión de errores para cuantificar y caracterizar las estrategias de recuperación de errores de los residentes - The American Journal of Surgery

Uso de la teoría de gestión de errores para cuantificar y caracterizar las estrategias de recuperación de errores de los residentes - The American Journal of Surgery: Traditional checklist metrics for surgical performance can miss key intraoperative
decisions that impact procedural outcomes. Error-based assessments may help identify
important metrics for evaluating operative performance and resident readiness for
independent practice.

Integrating Adverse Event Reporting Into a Free-Text Mobile Application Used in Daily Workflow Increases Adverse Event Reporting by Physicians - Joseph Delio, Jillian S. Catalanotti, Kathryn Marko, Courtney Paul, Myles Taffel, Geoffrey Ho, Jeffrey Berger,

Integrating Adverse Event Reporting Into a Free-Text Mobile Application Used in Daily Workflow Increases Adverse Event Reporting by Physicians - Joseph Delio, Jillian S. Catalanotti, Kathryn Marko, Courtney Paul, Myles Taffel, Geoffrey Ho, Jeffrey Berger,: Adverse event (AE) reporting is a key component of patient safety and physicians are known to underreport. The authors hypothesized that integrating AE reportin...

Recomendaciones para las vacunas obligatorias contra la influenza para el personal de atención médica del Subcomité Asesor de Infecciones de AMDA - Revista de la Asociación Americana de Directores Médicos

Recomendaciones para las vacunas obligatorias contra la influenza para el personal de atención médica del Subcomité Asesor de Infecciones de AMDA - Revista de la Asociación Americana de Directores Médicos: Preventing influenza infections is a national health priority, particularly among
geriatric and adults with frailty who reside in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC)
settings. Older adults account for more than 70% of deaths from influenza, a reflection
of decreased vaccine effectiveness in that age group. Annually vaccinating health
care personnel (HCP) working with these patients against influenza is critical to
reducing influenza morbidity and mortality among patients. PALTC HCP have the lowest
influenza vaccination rate when compared to HCP in other settings.

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Settings: A Consensus Statement From AMDA's Infection Advisory Subcommittee - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Urinary Tract Infections in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Settings: A Consensus Statement From AMDA's Infection Advisory Subcommittee - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: The diagnosis and management of urinary tract infections (UTIs) among residents of
post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) settings remains challenging. Nonspecific symptoms,
complex medical conditions, insufficient awareness of diagnostic criteria, and unnecessary
urine studies all contribute to the inappropriate diagnosis and treatment of UTIs
in PALTC residents. In 2017, the Infection Advisory Subcommittee at AMDA—The Society
for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine convened a workgroup comprised of experts
in geriatrics and infectious diseases to review recent literature regarding UTIs in
the PALTC population.

Are Antibiograms Ready for Prime Time in the Nursing Home? - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Are Antibiograms Ready for Prime Time in the Nursing Home? - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: In 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) initiated a requirement
that nursing homes have an antibiotic stewardship program.1 As part of this requirement,
nursing homes must track antibiotic use as well as monitor and communicate trends
in antibiotic resistance. One tool specifically mentioned in the regulatory guidance
that can aid in tracking antibiotic resistance is the antibiogram.2 As part of the
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)–funded Improving Outcomes of Urinary
Tract Infection Management in Long-Term Care (IOU) project (R18-HS023779), one-on-one
coaching calls were conducted with each participating facility.

Prioritizing Prevention to Combat Multidrug Resistance in Nursing Homes: A Call to Action - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Prioritizing Prevention to Combat Multidrug Resistance in Nursing Homes: A Call to Action - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) do not discriminate—they spread in all health
care settings. From our unique vantage point at the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC), we are witnessing the emergence of novel MDROs across the country,
which are causing life-threatening infections, with limited to no available treatments.1
Public health efforts to detect and contain these pathogens have revealed the significant
role nursing homes, especially those caring for a medically complex, higher-acuity
resident population, are playing in the regional spread of these dangerous pathogens.

Progress and Challenges in the Management of Nursing Home Infections - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association

Progress and Challenges in the Management of Nursing Home Infections - Journal of the American Medical Directors Association: Infections are one of the leading causes of death and hospitalization for residents
in post-acute and long-term care settings. With the aging population, increasing complexity
of care and the growing threat of antibiotic resistance, infection prevention and
antibiotic stewardship have been receiving even greater emphasis worldwide. This issue
of JAMDA–The Journal of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine is entirely devoted
to infections in these settings and was spearheaded by JAMDA's editors in collaboration
with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
