Limerick Post Show | Careers & Health Sciences Event for TY Students Linkedin TAGShealthLimerick City and CountyNewsuniversity hospital limerick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook 64 patients waiting for beds in UHL WhatsApp University Hospital LimerickNONE of the patients who contracted the superbug CPE in University Hospital Limerick died as a direct result of the infection, a new report has concluded.However the review into the deaths of patients infected with CPE has determined that it could have been a factor in eight of the deaths.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The report follows an independent investigation by UK consultant microbiologist, Dr Robert Spencer into the deaths of 74 patients in whom CPE had been detected. It overruled the findings of a previous internal hospital investigation which found that CPE could have been the cause of three deaths at the hospital.At a press conference in UHL this week, Professor Paul Burke said that all of the patients in whom CPE had been detected ”had many other clinical conditions.” such as cancer or coronary disease making CPE just one of the contributing factors in their deaths.“In our internal review, the question we asked was whether death could be said to have been attributable to CPE and the answer in three cases was yes. We commissioned an independent report to get a more objective perspective. It was Dr Spencer’s finding that CPE was not the main cause of death and we believe this is reasonable conclusion”.In June 2016, a UHL whistleblower wrote to Health Minister Simon Harris calling for an investigation of the management of antibiotic-resistant drugs at the hospital. In July 2017, the Limerick City Coroner wrote to management to say that a whistleblower had asked him to investigate 36 deaths at the hospital between 2009 and 2017.Seven of the eight cases in which the subsequent investigation determined that CPE was a factor in the patient’s deaths were on the list sent to the coroner by the whistleblower.UL Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan said that all but one of the families of the eight people had been contacted and given copies of the report. One family had not responded to calls or registered letters, she said.“We have to remember that behind each of these figures is a grieving family and we must be sensitive to that”.A person can be colonised with CPE without any harmful results unless it becomes a blood-borne infection.Prof Cowan said that the hospital saw an outbreak of CPE in 2011 and since then, they have invested heavily in control measures, staff training, equipment and infrastructure.€4.5 million was spent in 2015 alone on measures to control the spread of the superbug and there has been no bloodstream infection with CPE detected at the hospital since June 2105.Prof Cowan said the hospital now performs up to 1,000 screening checks a month.The report states that over the period of the review (February 2009 to May 2017) there were 196 new CPE detections out of 41,000 screenings.Professor Martin Cormican, the National Lead for Healthcare Associated Infections, said it was important for people who tested positive for the superbug to understand that they were not a danger to anyone outside a hospital setting.

Middletown Police Department(MIDDLETOWN, OH) — Middletown, Ohio, Police are recognizing an 8-year-old who bravely pulled himself and his 10-year-old sister to safety after a man stole his grandmother’s car.Their grandmother, Nita Coburn, 69, was taking another woman to Atrium Medical Center on Thursday afternoon. The two kids were sitting in the back seat.A few seconds after Coburn got out of the car to help the woman go to the emergency room, Dalvir Singh, 34, jumped into the driver’s seat and took off with Coburn’s grandchildren still in the back, police said.The boy opened a door to escape and his sister was about to jump out when Singh grabbed her by the hoodie, according to police.But her brother pulled her away from Singh, and they both tumbled out of the moving car.“This little guy is a hero. No question. He pulled his sister out of the car with no concern for his own safety,” Middletown Police Chief Rodney Muterspaw said. “That is incredible at his age.”Coburn didn’t realize the children were able to escape on the passenger’s side. She chased the car, opening the driver’s door to get control of the car.Singh slammed the door shut again and locked the door. She hung onto the car, thinking her children were still inside.The car dragged Coburn until Singh sped up, forcing her to let go.Officers only identified by their last name, Kirby and Engleka, saw Coburn’s car speeding away nearby.The two officers stopped and arrested Singh. He was charged with two counts of kidnapping, felony assault, and grand theft.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) is an annual survey conducted by the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. It measures consumer satisfaction with the goods and services provided across a broad range of industries.This last year, the survey found that banks surpassed credit unions in customer satisfaction.While it certainly doesn’t sound the death knell for credit union claims of better member experience, it raises some interesting questions—and serious concerns. And, in many ways, it reminds us that digital transformation is still a pressing need in the financial realm.
