Image: Eamonn Farrell/Photocall Ireland Dec 5th 2016, 6:31 PM 16 Comments A REVIEW INTO patient safety at Portlaoise Hospital has found that “significant risks remain” at the hospital despite improvements being made in maternity care.The review of the Midland Regional Hospital comes almost three years after a Prime Time investigation that looked at the deaths of eight babies in avoidable circumstances.The review began in April and its 120 page report was published today by the Health Information and Quality Authority (Hiqa).The report determined that the future of the hospital was “uncertain” and added that decisions taken on its future operation must consider the potential knock-on effects on other hospitals.The review found that governance arrangements at the hospital’s emergency department do not meet required standards.The intensive care unit at the hospital was also found to be below adequate standards, a situation that was identified in a previous report published in 2015.“In 2015, the Hiqa Portlaoise Investigation Team was not assured that critical care services were sustainable in Portlaoise Hospital, and this situation has remained unchanged,” said Hiqa’s director of regulation Mary Dunnion.The report has also pointed to what it described as “an over-reliance on agency staff”.“The continuing lack of certainty around services at the hospital has led to difficulty in recruiting and keeping staff,” the report says.In noting some of the positive improvements made by the hospital, the review found that maternity services at the hospital are being provided “in a safer and more sustainable way”.It also noted an improvement in the staff to birth ratio, something which has been largely driven by a reduced number of births.In responding to the report, the HSE acknowledges that “significant challenges remain” at the hospital. It has committed to appointing more consultants in emergency and general medicine.Health Minister Simon Harris has praised the progress the hospital made in improving maternity services, adding that he has directed the hospital to tackle the risks identified in the report.“I have asked the HSE to address these immediate risk issues as a priority and to ensure that the hospital is appropriately supported in its role by the other hospitals in the Hospital Group to serve the patients of the Midlands,” he said.Read: “To err is human, to cover up is inexcusable” – eight babies died at Portlaoise Hospital >Read: Hospital apologises after man settles case against HSE and doctor who delivered him for €4.1 million > Short URL By Rónán Duffy Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article The administration department at the Midlands Regional Hospital, Portlaoise.

Des jets de matière émis par un trou noir photographiés par la NasaUne équipe internationale de chercheurs de la Nasa est parvenue à capturer une image des jets de particules émis par un trou noir au sein de la galaxie Centaurus A. Le cliché, d’une extrême précision, est la représentation la plus détaillée obtenue à ce jour.Le cliché dévoilé par la Nasa est surprenant. L’image représente la galaxie Centaurus A (également appelée NGC 5128) située à environ 14 millions d’années-lumière de la Terre. De chaque côté, perpendiculairement, se détachent deux gigantesques lobes lumineux. Il s’agit de matière expulsée avec puissance par un énorme trou noir d’une masse de 55 millions de soleils, situé au cœur de la galaxie. Ces jets de particules peuvent atteindre des hauteurs gigantesques de près d’un million d’années-lumière avant de retomber vers leur point d’origine. Cornelia Mueller, chercheur à l’Université d’Erlangen-Nuremberg en Allemagne et directrice principale de l’étude déclare : “Nous savons que ces jets émanent du trou noir, ce que nous ne savons pas encore ce sont les détails sur comment ils se forment et se maintiennent”, rapporte le DailyMail.À lire aussiLe grand “boom” entendu par les New-Yorkais proviendrait d’une météoritePour obtenir une image d’une telle qualité, neuf radiotélescopes du réseau de l’hémisphère Sud Tanami ont été utilisés. Ceux-ci ont la capacité de repérer les noyaux actifs de galaxies, à savoir des régions compactes situées en leur centre, beaucoup plus lumineuses que la normale. Roopesh Ojha, astronome de la Nasa au centre de vols spatiaux Goddard dans le Maryland, explique : “Les techniques informatiques de pointe nous permettent de combiner des données provenant des télescopes individuels pour obtenir des images avec la finesse d’un télescope géant presque aussi grand que la Terre elle-même”. Les images réalisées avec ces procédés devrait permettre aux scientifiques de mieux comprendre les processus de formation de ces jets de matière.Centaurus A est une des radiogalaxies les plus proches de la Terre. Aussi, son noyau actif a été pendant des années étudié par les astronomes. Cinquième galaxie la plus brillante du ciel, elle peut être observée avec du matériel amateur depuis les faibles latitudes de l’hémisphère nord et dans l’hémisphère sud.Découvrez les jets de particules du trou noir de Centaurus A en vidéo en cliquant ci-dessous : https://www.maxisciences.com/trou-noir/trou-noir-des-jets-de-matiere-captures-par-les-telescopes-de-la-nasa_art14833.htmlLe 25 mai 2011 à 15:55 • Emmanuel Perrin read more
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp New Gun Crimes unit under construction, says TCI Police Commissioner Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, May 8, 2017 – Providenciales – A moving protest through Providenciales as Pastors and Believers in Christ paraded in an anti crime march on Sunday. From the down town area to the First Caribbean round about, there was a stand by the church to see the scourge of crime reduced, to see the violence and armed offenses abated. We spoke to organizing pastors. “The march is to really bring an awareness to the community at large on what is going on, and stemming from this march, we’re going to have some town hall meetings where we go in different communities and help to assist them in being watchmen for their neighbors, and also putting together some neighbor watches so that they can keep an eye on the community and get some of these crimes nipped in the butt, because it is getting worse, it is escalating and it’s time for it to stop.”#MagneticMediaNews#Pastorsmarchagainstcrime#seesomethingsaysomething Recommended for you Editorial: Stop Likin’ Man!

WILMINGTON, MA — The Friday, July 27, 4:30pm deadline has come and gone. Wilmington Apple has learned that three residents have submitted letters of interest to the Town Manager’s Office, asking to be considered for the School Committee seat recently vacated by Peggy Kane.The three candidates are:Jesse FennellyJo NewhouseScott TrachJesse Fennelly was the runner-up in April’s School Committee election. Fennelly (926 votes) finished third in a three-person race for two seats, behind incumbent MJ Byrnes (1,675 votes) and newcomer David Ragsdale (1,325). Fennelly ran a positive campaign, with an overall message of “ensuring that all the children in this school district have the chance to get the best, most well-rounded education possible,” while promising to “act as a voice for the parents and students in our community.” Readers can refresh their memories on Jesse’s campaign HERE.Jo Newhouse has been heavily involved in Wilmington Public Schools since 2011.She has been very active at the schools her two sons attend.“I have volunteered regularly at the Wildwood (2011-2015), Woburn Street (2013-2018), and North Intermediate (2016 to current) to assist wherever needed,” Newhouse told Wilmington Apple. “Whether it be in the library, in my children’s classes, in class lunches, at field days or on field trips.”Newhouse served as Co-Chair of the Wildwood PAC for three years. She was also a member of the Wildwood/Boutwell School Advisory Council. She currently serves as the Enrichment Coordinator for the Northside PAC. She has organized and run the Book Fair at the North Intermediate for the past two years. She also organized the annual teacher luncheons at the Wildwood, Woburn Street, and North Intermediate. She currently serves as the parent representative on the Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support (PBIS) team at the North Intermediate.Newhouse has also been very active at the district level as well, most notably as Co-Chair of the Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC) for the past three years.“As a SEPAC board member, some of the things I have done include working closely with parents, staff and administration on a whole host of important issues; attending numerous school open houses; organizing and running many workshops; holding monthly business meetings addressing many topics that affect the district; participating in the District Coordinated Program Review this past Spring; participating in the district’s Behavior Health Fairs, and helping make monthly support group meetings available for guardians with special needs students,” said Newhouse.In addition to her six years as a member of the SEPAC, Newhouse currently serves on the district’s Homework Policy Committee. She was previously a member of the district’s Bullying Committee and the District Advisory Committee. Newhouse has also served on multiple interview committees to evaluate and vet candidates for both teaching and administrative positions with the school system.“Serving on the School Committee is something I’ve thought about for a while, but wanted to see through a few transitions on the SEPAC,” added Newhouse. “I’m now ready to take my involvement and volunteerism in the school system to the next level.Scott Trach, who submitted his letter just prior to the deadline, serves as the Associate Dean of Student Advising and Success at Berklee College of Music in Boston. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education at Berklee and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern Maine. He taught music in several school districts in Maine for more than 15 years, before joining Berklee.Each of the three candidates are married. Each have two school-aged children.Wilmington Apple hopes to interview all three candidates in the coming week.The Wilmington Board of Selectmen and the Wilmington School Committee will hold a joint meeting on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 7pm to fill the vacancy.

The Private Doctors’ Association (EIK) proposed a set of changes to Gesy on Wednesday, following complaints that public finances were being squandered to pay GPs, as well as Gesy doctors carrying out private practice simultaneously.President of the association Haris Armeftis said that the way doctors will be paid under the system is illogical.“We believe that for someone to be paid based on the number of people they have on their list is not representative,” he said.Armeftis said that the idea does not work on paper. As an example, he added that doctors would not have time to see so many patients (2,500 being the maximum one GP can have), as it would amount to being able to see 45 patients during an eight-hour work-shift.He added that this cannot be accomplished and that it would create long waiting lists that would be a burden on the economy and patients.“The main reason patients die is time,” he said, commenting on the waiting lists. He said that a patient could have to wait four months for a biopsy on for possible lung cancer, which could result in the disease spreading and diminishing the patient’s chances of living.He added that it is unacceptable that in a month, there are doctors in Gesy that had three month waiting lists, especially when it was advertised by the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) that a patient would be able to see his/her doctor in 72 hours.Commenting on the criteria to become a GP, Armeftis said that they were ‘not homogenous.’ He said that it was logical for a doctor to want to leave the public sector and move to the private sector where they can make more money for the same work.Asked about the use of public finances, Armeftis said that it is being squandered, “whether or not we want to believe it.”He added that they have witnessed incidents where doctors, who are in Gesy, practice privately. He said that his organisation has received complaints that the HIO has allowed doctors in Gesy to not register children on their lists and to charge them privately if they have private insurance.Regarding specialists, the head of the private doctors said that the parliament recently passed a bill stating that specialists do not need to register the patient in the Gesy system, leaving a window open for the specialist to charge them privately.Armeftis said that the organisation recommends there should be no lists for first degree care. Patients should have access to whichever doctor they want, resulting in the abolishment of lists, giving the doctors motives to immediately help the patients, creating conditions of healthy competition, he said.
