Effects of simulated facility-design changes on outpatient pharmacy efficiency

Author(s): Lin, A. C., Barker, K. N., Hassall, T. H., Gallelli, J. F.
The potential effects of using the Baker drug counter or the Systamodule pharmacy fixture, or both, on the efficiency of the current outpatient pharmacy system at the National Institutes of Health were evaluated by computer simulation. It was hypothesized that the use of these two devices would reduce (1) the prescription-filling time (RxFT) and (2) the distance traveled (DT) by pharmacists in...

Hand Hygiene Behavior in a Pediatric Emergency Department and a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit: Comparison of Use of 2 Dispenser Systems

Author(s): Larson, E. L., Albrecht, S., O'Keefe, M.
Unwashed hands of healthcare workers often become reservoirs of infectious pathogens and serve as media for pathogen transmission. Hand hygiene is considered as the single most important approach for preventing nosocomial infections. However, the compliance rates of hand hygiene in healthcare workers are typically low. Multiple factors, such as the fragrance of hand hygiene products and the location of sinks and dispensers, may impact hand hygiene compliance rate.

Ventilation of wards and nosocomial outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome among healthcare workers

Author(s): Jiang, S. P., Huang, L. W., Chen, X. L., Wang, J. F., Wu, W., Yin, S. M., Chen, W., Zhan, J., Yan, L., Ma, L., Li, J., Huang, Z.
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus called SARS-associated coronavirus. The disease may cause flu-like symptoms including fever (100.4 F or higher), myalgia, lethargy symptoms, cough, and sore throat. Most patients may develop pneumonia. Environmental contamination is an important factor contributing to SRAS transmission.

The Relationship Between Counselor Satisfaction and Extrinsic Job Factors in State Rehabilitation Agencies

Author(s): Andrew, J. D., Faubion, C. W., Palmer, C. D.
In a national study, researchers collected survey data from 315 state rehabilitation agency counselors in 16 states to examine job satisfaction and extrinsic job factors. This report provides statistical analyses and extensive descriptive data characteristics. For example, only 46% of the sample reported having a master's degree (or higher) in some form of counseling, and only 25% reported...
