    Recommendations 1. Medical and psychiatric ward staff need to be aware that patients with eating disorders being admitted to a medical or paediatric ward may be at high risk despite appearing well and having normal blood parameters. 2. The role of the primary care team is to monitor patients with eating disorders, refer them early and provide monitoring after discharge, in collaboration with medical services and EDSs (including community EDSs). Eating disorders are covered, in England, by the term severe mental illness and physical checks in primary care should be performed, even if u

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is attempting to ban race-based medical guidance which the organisation attributes to long-standing inequities in healthcare. In a statement on Monday, the AAP said: “Race is a historically-derived social construct that has no place as a biologic proxy. Over the years, the medical field has inaccurately applied race correction or race adjustment factors in its work, resulting in differential approaches to disease management and disparate clinical outcomes.” “Although it will continue to be important to collect clinical data disaggregated by race and

    A 14-year-old autistic girl was unlawfully detained in hospital and restrained in front of scared young patients, a high court judge has found. On one occasion last month the teenager managed to break into a treatment room where a dying infant was receiving palliative care. She was restrained there by three security guards, Mr Justice MacDonald said in a judgment in the family court that ordered Manchester city council (MCC) to find the girl a suitable community care placement instead of what he described as the “brutal and abusive” and “manifestly unsuitable” hospital environment.

    A paediatrician who was at the centre of one of Northern Ireland's longest running public inquiries will appear before a professional misconduct panel. Dr Heather Steen is accused of several failings following the death of Claire Roberts at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children in October 1996. The nine-year-old's death was examined by the hyponatraemia inquiry, which lasted 14 years. It examined the role of several doctors. Among his findings, the inquiry's chairman Mr Justice O'Hara said there had been a "cover-up" to "avoid scrutiny." Monday's tribunal will i

    Over the last five years, teams at Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, had completed at least four different improvement projects focused on increasing adherence to the independent double check (IDC) process. An IDC is when two registered nurses independently check a medication to ensure it is correct prior to administering it to the patient. Like other institutions, the hospital did not require this process for all medications but did require it for a select group of medications considered higher risk if given in incorrect doses, routes or times.

    Infection is a leading cause of childhood deaths, but many of these deaths are avoidable with timely treatment. The national Before Arrival at Hospital Project (BeArH), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), explored what happens to children under five years of age with serious infections before they are admitted to hospital. The aim of this research was to explore what helps children get help quickly and what might slow this process down, so that lessons could be learned for the care of this group of children in the future. This forum will be led by Professor

    London’s fragmented children’s cancer services will finally be reformed following a decade of delays and allegations of cover-up by senior officials. NHS England has said it will adopt recommendations that will see the capital’s services brought up to standards already common across the rest of the country, with children’s cancer centres needing to be based in hospitals with full paediatric intensive care units. The changes will be imposed “with no exceptions or special arrangements permitted,” it said in a letter yesterday. This means the Royal Marsden’s children’s service at i

    A senior doctor has warned that paediatric intensive care units (PICUs) are ‘as pressured as I can ever recall’ – despite the absence of cold weather, which typically leads to higher demand levels. James Fraser, president of the Paediatric Critical Care Society, said national bed occupancy in PICUs has “often been greater than 95 per cent” over recent weeks, while several units have reported 100 per cent occupancy. He said some children have had to be transferred between regions in order to admit them to a bed. PICUs are often under more pressure during winter, due to seasonal RSV an

    Five serious incidents, including the deaths of two children, spark “urgent” investigations at specialist trust Great Ormond Street Hospital FT has linked the incidents partly to what it described as a “faulty” batch of a type of glue used to close wounds during surgery Supplier says it followed the correct recall processes for the product Five serious incidents, including the deaths of two children, have sparked ‘urgent’ investigations into the processes through which clinicians are alerted to potential safety concerns over medical products used on patients.

    Research shows that patient complaints are significantly associated with physicians' risk management activity and lawsuits. Research also demonstrates that a small subset of physicians and surgeons in various areas of practice are associated with disproportionate shares of patient complaints. Coded and aggregated patient complaint data therefore offer a metric for identifying and promoting behavior change. Analysis of the distribution of patient complaints associated with 41 paediatric cardiac surgeons is presented as a means for helping leaders show one surgeon how her/his risk status c

    New monitors that can detect the deadly blood condition sepsis are being fitted at a Scottish children's hospital. The equipment will be installed at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. Charlotte Cooper, who lost her nine-month-old daughter Heidi to sepsis last year, said she had "no doubt" the monitors would help save babies' lives. She told BBC Scotland: "You don't have time to come to terms with the fact that someone you love is dying from sepsis because it happens so quickly." Ms Cooper now wants to see the monitors installed in every paediatric ward in Scotland. "We need
