- That's an imaginary internship at BIDMC (for now). Paul, call me...:)
- The big Nederland move will happen in January 08.

Just the fact that we prewarm every patient ensures the speediest recovery we can give them,” said Leslie Decker, O.R. Supervisor at the Surgery Center on Soncy in Amarillo, Texas.
“They’ve been prewarmed with the Bair Paws System in pre-op and we keep them warm during the surgical procedure with it.
With its clinical capabilities, the Bair Paws warming unit offers prewarming benefits before surgery and can also be used for comfort warming in both pre- and post-op settings. In addition, the gown is fully compatible with Arizant’s Bair Hugger warming units for the demanding clinical needs of the OR and recovery."
It's important to note NO state received a "satisfactory" grade, but Vermont, Minnesota and Massachusetts received "satisfactory minus" grades this year. 2 years ago 8 states made the cut.
DC, West Virginia, Texas, Tennesse, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, Indiana, Arkansas, and Alabama failed.
My new hometown of DC placed 44th, with the highest rates of HIV/AIDS, heart disease, and breast cancer death.
No state met the goals for health insurance; nationwide almost a fifth of women (18 percent ages 18-64) are uninsured.
The only indicator that worsened universally? Shocker: obesity.
If you want to lose weight - move to Hawaii: only 16.7 percent of women on the islands were overweight. For lower blood pressure - try Salt Lake: 17.7 percent of women in Utah had high BPs.
Meanwhile, 46 states scored worse in diabetes.
Another result detailed in the study is interesting, especially with regard to the current debate over a nationally provided, federally funded healthcare coverage program...the ONLY 2 policy goals met by all states in the program were Food Stamp participation and Medicaid coverage for breast/cervical cancer treatments.
Anyone still doubt the need for comprehensive, proactive wellness management programs?
And will each state's Department of Health please, please pick up a copy of the study and start managing against the 27 benchmark indicators?
27 things to save the life of women across the country. I don't know what's worse, that we're only counting 27 things or that we fail miserably at most of them.
