    Having accurate patient information (for example, age, allergies, laboratory results) helps practitioners select medications, doses and routes of administration. One vital piece of information, the patient's weight, is especially important, because it is used to calculate the appropriate dose of a medication (for example, mg/kg, mcg/kg, mg/m2). A prescribed or dispensed medication dose can differ significantly from the appropriate dose because of missing or inaccurate patient weights. Patients in oncology treatment, patients with renal insufficiency, or who are elderly, paediatric or neon

    For the last 10 months, everyone in healthcare has lived their lives as if they were trapped in a burning building without a fire escape. No matter how much water we throw on the fire or how many firefighters (healthcare providers in this instance) we send in, we cannot gain control of the flames.

"We're going to see an unprecedented surge of cases following Thanksgiving this year, and if people don't learn from Thanksgiving, we're going to see it af

    Not a single resident has contracted the coronavirus at Goodwin House’s small residential facility in Northern Virginia, USA, where about 80 seniors live in homey apartments and keep their own sleeping and meal schedules. There’s been just one case at the Woodlands at John Knox Village in Broward County, Fla., where all 140 residents live in private rooms and are cared for by nurses who earn enough not to take a second job. These facilities, part of a national movement in the US to create less-institutionalised long-term care, stand out in a pandemic that has killed more than 61,000 nursi

    Key points This report provides a road map for navigating through the current COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. It outlines specific directions for adapting our public-health approach away from sweeping mitigation strategies as we limit the epidemic spread of COVID-19, such that we can transition to new tools and approaches to prevent further spread of the disease. The authors outline the steps that can be taken as epidemic transmission is brought under control in different regions. They also suggest measurable milestones for identifying when we can make these transitions and
