CWRU nurse researcher surveys infection control practices for home patients August 8, 2012

A healthy boy was infected with antibiotic-resistant bacterium that was traced to his mother’s nurse’s bag left in the family’s car after his mother’s home healthcare visit to a patient with the same infection. Although the boy’s infection and the patient’s infection were never DNA tested, the coincidence was remarkable.

This event illustrates how bacteria from someone sick can infect others, said Irena Kenneley, assistant professor of nursing at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University.

She conducted a survey of home healthcare practices related to infection control. Kenneley reports in the April issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Home Healthcare Nurse, that home healthcare workers report that, like the boy, they have acquired infections and that the practices to prevent these infections varies from one agency to another.

About 32 million more Americans will soon come onto the insurance rolls, yet officials are predicting a lack of 90,000 doctors by 2020. Most of the shortage is in primary care physicians.

“We’re pretty much back to where we started,” said Dr. Atul Grover, chief public policy officer of the Association of American Medical Colleges. “How do we educate enough doctors to cover all those people?”

“Although Vietnam is incredibly entrepreneurial, many business people in Vietnam are afraid to fail. Thus, often times Vietnamese entrepreneurs do not take as many risks with their business as their counterparts in other countries.  We also tried and push our Vietnamese students to “dream big” when they think about starting companies.”

I think we have turned a corner, beyond what the politics are. We still could use support of government. We will grow more slowly without government support.

In the world, this is the fastest growing industry. People and businesses will install solar. The real question is how much does Ohio and the United States want to be a player and a leader in it versus a buyer and a follower.
