Objective: To assess the effect of an electronic prescribing (EP) system on the incidence and type of prescribing errors and the number of error-free visits. Study design: This was a before-and-after study conducted in a nephrology outpatient clinic at an acute tertiary care pediatric hospital. Results: A total of 520 patients had 2242 items prescribed on 1141 prescriptions during the study period. The overall prescribing error rate was 77.4% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 75.3% to 79.4%) for handwritten items and 4.8% (95% CI = 3.4% to 6.7%) with EP. Before EP, 1153 (73.3%; 95% CI = 71.1% to 75.4%) items were missing essential information, and 194 (12.3%; 95% CI = 10.8% to 14%) were judged illegible. After EP, only 9 (1.4%; 95% CI = 0.7% to 2.6%) items were missing essential information, and illegibility errors were eliminated. The number of patient visits that were error-free increased from 21% to 90% (69% difference; 95% CI = 64% to 73.4%) after the implementation of EP. Conclusions: There was a high incidence of errors using handwritten prescriptions in the outpatient setting, with an overall error rate of 77.4%. EP significantly reduced errors related to completeness of prescriptions and eliminated legibility related errors.
In the ionization region above circular planar magnetrons well defined
regions of high emissivity are observed, when the discharge is driven in the
HiPIMS regime. Once their mode is stabilized, these structures rotate in the E
x B direction with a constant rotation frequency in the hundreds of kHz...
We will present STAR's recent dielectron measurements in the
Low and intermediate mass range for RHIC beam energies ranging between 19.6 and
200 GeV. Compared to electrons, muon measurements have the advantage of reduced
Bremsstrahlung radiation in the surrounding detector materials. With the
We pay special attention to three representative examples,
Where the feedback generates non-local effective interactions for the
Magnetization. Possibly the most dramatic feedback example is the dynamic
Instability in magnetic nanopillars with a single magnetic layer. This
Instability does not occur...
