BACKGROUND Intravenous therapy in the outpatient and home settings is commonplace for many diseases and nutritional disorders. Few data are available on the rate of and risk factors for bloodstream infection among patients receiving such therapy. OBJECTIVE To determine rates of and risk factors for bloodstream infection among patients receiving home(More)
—Recent active worm propagation events show that active worms can spread in an automated fashion and flood the Internet in a very short period of time. Due to the recent surge of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) systems with large numbers of users, P2P systems can be a potential vehicle for the active worms to achieve fast worm propagation in the Internet. In this paper,(More)

The CERN EDMS has extended its capabilities from the management of engineering data to the domain of equipment data management by linking together two commercial systems. The combined system now supports more than 3500 users and manages more than 250,000 drawings, more than 30,000 documents and information about more than 3200 accelerator and detector(More)
Home intravenous therapy is a standard form of treatment for many recipients of healthcare in the United States. The use of intravascular devices can, however, be complicated by a variety of local or systemic infectious complications. A study was undertaken to address the role that patient noncompliance with infusion protocols plays in the complication rate(More)
The OPUS pipeline, which employs a blackboard architecture , has been processing Hubble Space Telescope (HST) data for nearly a year. OPUS was designed for both reusability and extensibility, as well as portability to different platforms and projects. OPUS contains a toolkit of resource files and programs which provide the users with the ability to(More)
At CERN as well as in the collaborating physics institutes and companies all around the world contributing to the design and construction of the LHC, many different CAD systems are used. A number of applications have been developed at CERN to integrate the design data from these systems into the general engineering framework managed by the CERN EDMS. On one(More)
A rapid rate of change in the home care arena has been widely documented and many more changes are likely to continue. This article presents the results of a descriptive study to characterize the use of licensed practical nurses (LPNs) within Ohio home care agencies. Among the findings were that that agencies use LPNs primarily in medical-surgical cases and(More)
