Indication-based prescribing prevents wrong-patient medication errors in computerized provider order entry (CPOE).

CONCLUSIONS: Indication-based alerts yielded a wrong-patient medication error interception rate of 0.25 per 1000 alerts. These alerts could be implemented independently or in combination with other strategies to decrease wrong-patient medication errors. PMID: 23396543 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The authors found a substantial return on investment using both the human capital approach and the value of a statistical life-year approach. In addition, the authors found that trips emphasizing education had a net economic benefit. Cost-benefit analyses have substantial financial implications and will aid policy makers in developing cost-reduction strategies to promote surgery in low- and middle-income countries.

BoussonAbstractDactylitis refers to a global swelling of a finger or a toe giving it a clinical sausage-shape presentation. It is an extremely suggestive symptom as it guides the rheumatologist towards a shortlist of diagnoses. However, radiologists are less familiar with dactylitis. The aim of this review is to detail and illustrate the main causes of dactylitis using standard X-ray imaging, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic reso...

Burning of medical waste generates contaminated environment which can be harmful for the components of incinerator. As the temperature is very high in incinerator, austentic steel and superalloys are generally used in construction of the components. However these alloys also suffered corrosion which can be delayed for some time by providing a coating protection on the surface of the alloys bef...
