Thanks for the response. We do a lot of injury prevention programming in manufacturing and I've always thought that the hospital sector would be a logical fit for this type of programming and would hopefully be well received by Health Care Professionals. I'm not familiar with the typical Safety Structure of a Hospital. Do you know or can you share with me the typical safety structure of a hospital system?
I just got reconnected to the safety community site and see that you posted a message awhile back in regards to Safety Priorities. One of your priorities was musculoskeletal injuries. I've worked in manufacturing where this was a priority and always thought the hospital systems were in need of some help in this area. Just curious. What types of programs have been effective for you?
I just joined this cybersite safety community. My primary interest in occupational health and safety is in the healthcare sector. Recently, I developed a website for healthcare which I think may be useful for you. The site address is: http://www.mtpinnacle.com/
That's very interesting that healthcare workers are at a higher risk. Why is that? I think you probably have developed a much more detailed program than I have seen in Texas. Mainly what we see at THR is family violence, battered spouses, child abuse, etc. I have worked at a hospital where the DON received a phone call in the middle of the night, answering the phone, she heard 5 gun shots and the words "you're next b_____." That was after she broke up a fist fight between employees at one of the nurse's stations. It was nothing to see cars in the parking lot with all 4 tires cut. This situation was very unique and I haven't ever seen it again.
All of our hospital's have response teams. What type of physical changes have you made? Also what type of risk assessment do you do for the staff?
Hello All,Have a question regarding SAN performance specifically EMC VNX SAN. I have a significant number of processes spread over number of blade servers running concurrently. The number of processes is typically around 200. Each process loads 2 small files from storage, one 3KB one 30KB. There are millions (20) of files to be processed. The processes are running on Windows Server on VMWare. The way this was originally…See More
Hello everyone! The construction of my new flower shop will start next month, and it’s a big project for me. Since the shop’s location is near the main road, I want to make sure that everyone is safe during the work. I can’t afford any accident like people getting injured. So I’m thinking of purchasing construction health and safety signs from a supplier that my friend recommended.…See More
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a core aspect of risk management and risk analysis in medical devices. FMEA is essentially about analyzing the reasons for which a problem arises and the effects it has on the system. In the field of medical devices, it is absolutely critical to understand the failure mode and effects because the consequences of not doing this can be disastrous and many times, even…See More
