Lisa Rosenbaum, M order .D.: Transitional Chaos or Enduring Harm? The EHR and the Disruption of Medicine A decade ago, a primary care physician We admired seemed to come undone. His effectiveness had derived not really from rushing between patients but from knowing them so well that his charting was effortless and fast. But instantly he became distracted, losing his grip on the facts of his sufferers’ lives. He slumped around, shirt half-untucked, perpetually pulling a yellowed handkerchief from his pocket to clean his perspiring forehead.
Hospitals have provided virtually no Ebola treatment schooling to nurses Out from the 76 healthcare workers who crossed paths with deceased Ebola victim Thomas Duncan at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, two have come down with the disease. If the disease could have been identified the 1st time Duncan went to a healthcare facility properly, more precautions could have been made. If the health care workers were correctly trained right away to ask the right questions and take correct safety precautions, then the two nurses might have hardly ever contacted the Ebola virus from Duncan. Sadly, a fresh National Nurses United study demonstrates 85 % of US hospitals are unprepared and offer without any Ebola treatment training to nurses. This insufficient preparation across the panel make the medical system and individual hospitals a danger zone for Ebola spread.
