Husbands, Wives and the Peculiar Economics of Household Public Goods

Amanda J Felkey
2013 European Journal of Development Research  
This analysis uses the collective household model to determine how household public goods and household public bads are chosen in light of the relative power balance between husband and wife.  ...  More specifically, enhancement of female power, while generally good for child nutrition (more controversially, and the paper shows this theoretically and empirically) there is also a class of situations  ...  certain household commodities, I estimate expenditure functions of the following form: ( ) ( ) (pcex power female power female Share Budget i i i i i 3 2 2 1 _ _ _ β β β α + + + = ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) i j  ...

Why is mock care not a good proxy for predicting hand contamination during patient care?

Marco-Felipe King, Amanda M. Wilson, Martín López-García, Jessica Proctor, Daniel G. Peckham, Ian J. Clifton, Stephanie J. Dancer, Catherine J. Noakes
2020 Journal of Hospital Infection  
Healthcare worker behaviours, such as the sequence of their contacts with surfaces and hand hygiene moments are important for understanding disease transmission. The study objective was to propose a method for recording sequences of HCW behaviours during mock vs. actual procedures and to evaluate differences for use in infection risk modelling and staff training. Procedures for three types of care were observed under mock and actual settings: IV-drip care, observational care, and doctors'

Actual patient care demonstrated 70% more surface contacts. It was also 2.4 minutes longer but equal in terms of patient contacts. On average, doctors spent 7.5mins (2.5mins for mock) with patients whilst auxiliary nurses took 4.9mins for "obs" (2.4mins for mock). While registered nurses took 3.2mins for mock IV-care and 3.8mins for actual observation this translated to a 44% increase in contacts. In 51% of actual care and 37% of mock care episodes, hand hygiene was performed before patient contact; in comparison, 15% of staff delivering actual care performed hand hygiene after patient contact on leaving the room vs 22% for mock care. Number of overall touches in the patient room was a modest predictor of hand hygiene. Using a model to predict contamination on hands from surface contacts for Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and norovirus, mock care underestimated microorganisms on hands by about 30%.

Zinc Deficiency-induced Hypogeusia in a Patient with Refractory Iron-deficiency Anemia: A Case Report

Alex J Gooding, Clifford D Packer, Amanda L Pensiero
2019 Cureus  
Zinc deficiency is a relatively common condition in various American populations but is frequently unrecognized and under-diagnosed. It typically presents with nonspecific symptoms, including lethargy, immune dysfunction, dermatitis, diarrhea, and decreased taste sensation (hypogeusia). Zinc deficiency often occurs concurrently with iron deficiency and has been linked to more severe clinical manifestations of iron deficiency anemia. We describe a 66-year-old man who presented with weakness and
