BACKGROUND Shady Grove Adventist Hospital implemented a series of housewide initiatives to decrease ambulance diversions, decrease wait times in the emergency department (ED), improve poor patient satisfaction, and decrease risks to patient safety. METHODS Process improvement teams addressed areas affecting overcrowding and inpatient bed availability.(More)
It is becoming increasingly important that a Geographical Information System delivers high performance to efficiently store, retrieve and process the voluminous data that it needs to handle. It is necessary to employ processing and storage parallelism for scalable long‐term solutions. With the demise of many custom‐built parallel machines, it is imperative(More)
Several GIS applications are characterized by the vast amount of information that needs to be stored, retrieved and analyzed. The volume and complexity of the data will continue to grow in the future as is apparent from the expected geo-spatial petabyte data set for NASA’s EOSDIS project which will hold a collection of raster images arriving at a rate of(More)
The main objectives of this research were to determine what aerosols were present by taking total dust (TD) samples and thoracic particulate mass samples (TPM) on farms and in grain elevators. Cascade impactors were used to characterize size distributions of dust and endotoxins at each site. Total dust concentrations on farms had a geometric mean 3.4 mg/m3(More)
