The proponents of the primary model of nursing, in which a single nurse bears direct and indirect responsibility for a given number of patients during their hospital stay, suggest that both nurse and patient stand to gain from this system of service delivery. In this study, an all-RN model of delivery was compared with a team model and a modular model. The(More)

Munson and Clinton developed an instrument to measure cross-sectional variation in integration and continuity of nursing care in team, modular, and primary nursing units in a hospital. In this study I show that when the instrument is adapted for longitudinal studies of nursing care, it provides more reliable and sensitive measurements. My results also(More)

As part of a five-year effort to evaluate alternative methods of improving nurse productivity, this study was undertaken to better understand work flow monitoring as a technique for stabilizing staffing patterns and to improve productivity in hospitals. Two admissions scheduling and monitoring systems were studied and compared with an admissions system(More)
In the present study, the antioxidant activity of successive leaf extracts of Dracaena reflexa was investigated using the scavenging activity on 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl and reducing power by ferric reducing antioxidant power assay. Methanol extract was found potent in both the assays. IC50 values of 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl assay for methanol(More)

There are two major components to nursing support systems: technical support systems, for the distribution of supplies and medicines to patients and for communication among hospital personnel, and structural support systems, for the organization of nursing staff-RNs, LPNs, and aides-into a systematic, working assignment pattern. Four hospital studies that(More)
A simulation model is developed to study the dynamics of transfer and detection of gonorrhea in a population. Alternative policy issues are developed and studied by changing controllable parameter values in the model. The alternative policies are evaluated based on the sensitivity of the parameters in controlling the disease. The parameters studied are:(More)
