Lee (2009) suggested that physicians should initiate the catheterization laboratory without necessary consulting the cardiologists.
In some cases, some patients that have been referred for PPCI do not get optimum percutaneous reperfusion and at the right time with an experienced group (Tubaro et al., 2011). PCI aims to open the artery as soon as possible after its blockade, preferably within 90minutes (Cardiosmart.org, 2014). The recommended time for the treatment of patients with PCI capability is a maximum of 90 minutes. For those without PCI capability, they should receive medical attention in the first 30minutes of arrival at a hospital. The treatment is basically fibrinolytic therapy.
Paramedic bypass of the protocols of emergency care reduced the number of minutes of the door to balloon time. From the study, there was an improvement of over 28 % percent. Before the initiation of paramedic by pass protocol, the average time needed was about 107 minutes. These saw an improvement of about thirty-seven minutes with an average time coming down to 70 percent. However, the study recommends for further studies to determine the outcome of those patients who were taken care of by these paramedics (Cheskeset al, 2011).
In the observation by Pitta et al (2010), it was noted that most of the time lost is on the acquisition of an electrocardiogram and most of the patients never had an electrocardiogram conducted on them because of the delays. Hence, from the case study, the authors emphasize on the need to have a Pre-hospital electro cardiogram to conduct to aid in reducing the door to balloon time.
In the study conducted by Wilson et al, (2010) to assess the impact of interdepartmental collaboration on door to balloon time reduction, the authors observes that there is a great improvement on time reduction with emergency department physician activation of cardiac catheterization laboratory followed with instantaneous transfer in

According to the study it is clear that oral hygiene is tantamount to other forms of hygiene in terms of disease prevention. It was noted that mechanically ventilated patients, especially those in ICU and neurologic states are at higher risk of VAP because of conducive factors such as mouth dryness, open mouth, lowered degrees of consciousness and secretions through microaspiration.
Even when the conditions are similar best practices tend to stunt an organization due to lack of experimentation, challenge or risk and even if it help an organization meet its basic goals best practices are safe options that cannot help the organization grow or do anything innovative.
Best practices provoke the need to understand PM in social as well as economic milieu. Smaller to medium size projects have trivial complexities, smaller problems identification and a brief documentation whereas larger projects have complex requirement specification1 and vice versa.
The eventual aim is to have a position which is indispensable and one that receives a great deal of fiscal return on a consistent basis. The objective must be to make this process grow as a result of the
A literal example of learning in the hospital setting is the e-hospital project (“E-hospital, 2009) where they strive to enable long-term patients with the education they need and even a university education. However,
When writing the Independence Practice part of the Lesson Plan, the teacher should include activities that the students will be able to fill out on their own basing on his/her observations during a guided practice. The teacher should also offer independent practice repeatedly so that learning is not forgotten especially for the struggling students
