Comparing Bilateral And Unilateral Metal Stabilizers: Incision Complications In Pectus Repair, Seth Saylors, Shawn D. St Peter, Tolulope A. Oyetunji MD MPH, Nelimar Cruz-Centeno, Nitin Nadella 2024 Children's Mercy Kansas City

Comparing Bilateral And Unilateral Metal Stabilizers: Incision Complications In Pectus Repair, Seth Saylors, Shawn D. St Peter, Tolulope A. Oyetunji Md Mph, Nelimar Cruz-Centeno, Nitin Nadella

Research Days

Introduction: The use of metal stabilizers in minimally invasive pectus excavatum repair (MIPER) has been previously associated with multiple postoperative complications. We aimed to identify if bilateral metal stabilizers increase the risk of incision complications when compared to unilateral stabilizers.

Methods: Institutional Review Board approval was obtained. Patients that underwent MIPER with metal stabilizers from 2019 to 2022 and currently had the bar in place, at a single tertiary care pediatric center, were included. A telephone survey evaluated if they had incision-associated symptoms, and if the location was congruent with the stabilizer site. A retrospective chart review was performed to …

Research Days

Introduction: Patient controlled analgesia (PCA) was previously standard for postoperative pain control in children with perforated appendicitis at our institution. We previously reported the equivocal outcome of intravenous (IV) acetaminophen as a pain control adjunct used to transition from PCA to oral narcotics. We have since transitioned to a PCA-free, multi-modal pain control regimen postoperatively in perforated appendicitis. Through observational study, we aim to describe the impact of our new pain control regimen on postoperative narcotic use.

Methods: Children– June 2020 at a single freestanding children’s hospital were reviewed. Details of their hospitalization, including demographic, operative, anesthesia, pain management, and …

Optimization Of Triage Documentation In A Large Urban Emergency Department, Monica Reynoso-Prieto 2024 University of San Francisco

Optimization Of Triage Documentation In A Large Urban Emergency Department, Monica Reynoso-Prieto

Master's Projects and Capstones

Problem California ranks ninth nationwide in terms of longest emergency department wait times. The project aims to reduce patient triage times by refining the workflow of triage documentation, achieved through strategic rearrangement of triage documentation questions. Context This quality improvement project took place in the emergency department of a large urban Bay Area hospital. Intervention The intervention was implementation of changes to the triage documentation based on staff feedback from an opinion survey, such as: elimination of redundant questions, consolidation of related categories, and logical reorganization of triage topics. Measures Measures used in the project were triage times and pre …


Raising The Bar: Optimizing Peripartum Handoff Through Standardized Nurse Knowledge Exchange (Nke), Kimberly Martinez RN 2024 University of San Francisco

Raising The Bar: Optimizing Peripartum Handoff Through Standardized Nurse Knowledge Exchange (Nke), Kimberly Martinez Rn

Master's Projects and Capstones

Problem Hospital X’s peripartum microsystem has no policy guiding the Nurse Knowledge Exchange (NKE) process. Variability in handoffs during patient transfers could lead to medical errors and adverse events. This quality improvement (QI) project aims to pilot a standardized handoff guide to improve nurse communication and avoid adverse patient outcomes following patient transfers. Context The setting for this QI project was a peripartum mesosystem at an urban hospital located in Northern California with 21 postpartum rooms and nine labor rooms. Intervention The project employed a systematic approach that involved engaging stakeholders, analyzing microsystems, reviewing literature, and analyzing data to identify …
