Recognizing Healthcare Excellence®

Congratulations to Stilwell Memorial Hospital on achieving top 1% in the nation for low infections, low complications, low readmissions, low mortality, and great value”

— Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, CEO of The SafeCare Group

LEXINGTON , KENTUCKY, USA, February 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stilwell Memorial Hospital was rated 6th in the nation by The SafeCare Group’s 100 SafeCare Hospitals program.

The SafeCare Group analyzed data on more than 4,500 US hospitals and ranked hospitals performance in five empirical areas of care: Outcomes of Care; Infections of Care; Safety of Care; Efficiency of Care; and Unplanned Visits of Care.

The 100 SafeCare Hospitals excelled in 40 evidence-based metrics like low medical and surgical infections, low 30-Day mortality rates, low medical and surgical complications, low 30-Day medical and surgical readmissions, and overall cost per patient. Memorial Hospital achieved the top 1% in the nation.

Hospitals that perform poorly on these quality, safety, and efficiency metrics receive a financial penalty from the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid. Only about two percent of US hospitals earn the prestigious 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction.

“While all US hospitals achieving improvements deserve recognition, Memorial Hospital and those achieving 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction are leading the way,” says Dr. Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, Chairman and CEO of The SafeCare Group. “Congratulations to Memorial Hospital on achieving top 1% in the nation for low infections, low complications, low readmissions, low mortality, and great value.”

Each year, an estimated 440,000 patients die from medical errors. Millions more are affected from shabby care, bad treatments, and poor services from hospitals.

We listened to the numerous emails and letters of complaints, suggestions, and feedback from patients and created an easy tool for hospital consumers to find and compare hospitals. Our members are down-to-earth folks seeking to find dependable hospitals that deliver high-quality care.

100SafeCareHospitals.com is a consumer-oriented service that can help consumers make informed decisions about their health care. The Star Ratings include quality measures for the routine care an individual receives when being treated for heart attacks and pneumonia to quality measures that focus on hospital-acquired infections and hospital-acquired complications.

Another Utility Lineman’s Life Saved by Compass

Avoid Electrocution Safety Device

Compass Personal Voltage and Current Detector

Safeguard Equipment Measures Success by the Number of Lives Saved

POST FALLS, IDAHO, USA, February 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since starting operations, Safeguard Equipment has sold thousands of Compass Personal Voltage & Current Detectors. Compass has been verified to have saved at least eleven lives and has likely saved more simply by enabling workers to avoid the risk of electrocution. Compass saves lives by alerting users to the presence of active voltage and current found in their surroundings.

Mike Marthers, a lineman with Fairfield Electric Co-op in South Carolina, has over 20+ years experience. Mike’s wearing of a Compass Personal Voltage and Current Detector during a recent power outage resulted in his being alerted to life threatening current and voltage found in his work environment.

In his own words, Mike tells of his recent encounter with electrical danger.

"Hey Thomas, the other night this device saved my life! I responded to a power outage which had reports of a primary wire down. Arriving at the scene, I saw that a tree had torn both the 7200 volt primary line and neutral, both were on the ground. The fire department was there, so I quickly grabbed my hard hat, safety glasses, rubber gloves, and flashlight. Standing beside my truck, I shined the flashlight to the top of the pole and saw that the 7200 volt primary had broken at the insulator – so it was in-the-clear; the neutral wire was draping from the pole and also appeared to be in-the-clear. I put on my rubber gloves and proceeded into the right-of-way, but before taking the first step something told me to turn on my voltage detector – so I did. I reached up to the brim of my hard hat and pressed the button, activating the (Compass) voltage detector. Getting closer to the downed lines, the voltage detector sounded off. I immediately stopped and looked up at the top of the pole again. From this vantage point I could see that the neutral had come off of its insulator and was laying on one of the 120 volt secondary legs of the single-phase transformer (which was still energized from the opposite side of the pole), causing the neutral to be energized at 120 volts! And after the line was repaired and upon being re-energized, the voltage detector went off again – letting me know I was in proximity to another energized source – though it was some 30 feet away and up in the air at this point. Immediately a fireman asked me 'where can I buy one of those?'" -Mike Marthers

Safeguard Equipment is committed to becoming the leader in occupational safety product development. Every day, Safeguard Equipment’s innovative thinking and dedication protect the lives and well-being of workers. Compass, engineered to attach easily and securely under the brim of any standard hard hat, is the first product of its kind to provide audio and visual alerts for unseen electrical threats. Its strategic placement provides 360° of threat detection and it’s the only device on the market that provides the user with directional alerts.

Local IT Company Gives Companies Three Ways to Decrease Their Risk of a Cyberattack

Cyberattack

Mindcote IT services

Local Technology professional at Mindcore gives 3 ways for companies to decrease their risk of a cyberattack.

Cybersecurity is something I bring up with companies everyday because when it comes to the future of their business, nothing is more important for them to get right.”

— Matt Rosenthal, CEO of Mindcore IT Services

FAIRFIELD, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Local technology expert and CEO of Mindcore, Matt Rosenthal, helps companies across the country strengthen their cybersecurity so that they can decrease their risk of cyberattacks.

“Cybersecurity is something I bring up with companies everyday because when it comes to the future of their business, nothing is more important for them to get right” says Rosenthal. Still, thousands of companies go out of business each year because they fail to take cybersecurity seriously.

The Impact of Cyberattacks is Real

Nearly two-thirds of organizations have reported experiencing cyberattacks in the last two years. About half of these included attacks from hacking, while approximately a third came from phishing and malware strategies, respectively.

This can result in a loss of private data, costly recovery expenses and weakened client trust. What’s worse, the average breach lifecycle is nearly a year.

To combat these losses, Rosenthal lists out three ways for a company to get ahead of the threats.

3 Ways to Decrease The Risk of a Cyberattack

Invest in cybersecurity services.

Not all solutions have to be complicated. With cybersecurity, the first step is to invest time and money into giving companies the protection they need. It starts by realizing that this investment is far cheaper than the cost of recovering after a breach.

Understand that data breaches will happen.

Staying proactive is key to the fight against cyber threats but it’s just as important for companies to invest in their resilience. This starts with accepting the fact that breaches will happen and focusing on how to minimize the actual downtime.

Hold yourself responsible.

Ignoring cyber threats is grossly irresponsible for today’s business leaders. They need to accept responsibility not just for themselves but for the future of their company, their staff and customers. Investments in security awareness training now can result in exponential savings in the future.

Thousands of companies are already beginning to take these steps and as a result, they are more competitive, efficient and productive. It makes a compelling argument for cybersecurity not only being at the core of a company’s IT strategy but the core of their business strategy.

CCHR Calls Involuntary Psychiatric Examination of Children in Florida a Human Rights Abuse

The Florida mental health law needs to be amended to clearly state the role a parent, guardian or caregiver should have in the process.

CCHR has helped secure the safe release of over 1,200 men, women and children who were being unjustly held under the Baker Act.

There is an involuntary examination of a child every 15 minutes of every day and it is known that a significant percentage of these children do not meet the criteria.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past two weeks there has been a viral reporting of the tragic involuntary psychiatric examination of a 6-year-old girl in Jacksonville, Florida. Called a Baker Act, involuntary psychiatric examination is part of the Florida mental health law and it applies to anyone no matter their age. This media storm has focused the attention of the entire country on Florida and the fact that the current mental health law is being abused and used inappropriately.

According to the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a watchdog organization that investigates and exposes abuse in the mental health industry, the Baker Acting of this child is a human rights abuse and could have been avoided by simply calling the mother and giving her an opportunity to help her child. As quoted on CBS This Morning, Martina Falk wants to know why her daughter was Baker Acted instead of being given the love and attention she needed. [1]

“The law as it is currently written allows for family or friends to help a person in crisis, including a child, yet parents are not being contacted prior to a Baker Act,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “This is why the law needs to be amended to clearly state the role a parent, guardian or caregiver should have in the process.”

That the Baker Acting of children is a major situation is known and has been known for decades which is why legislation has been filed year after year to amend the law to bring the parents into the process before a child has been taken into custody. This is also why a task force was created in 2017 and why over a 15 years ago the Florida Senate published an Interim Project Report clarifying the Baker Act requirements as they relate to children. [2] The project in 2005 was created due to concern of how the Baker Act was being applied to children and the perception that the involuntary examination procedures were being used inappropriately for minors. At that time a main concern was that children were being held in receiving facilities for extended periods of time without sufficient exploration of less intrusive alternatives. It took another 12 years before the mental health act was amended to ensure that receiving facilities expedite the examination of children when during the 2017 legislative session the examination period for minors was reduced from 72 hours to 12 hours. Tragically, during those 12 years over 295,000 children were sent for involuntary examination – many without parental knowledge of the initiation.

Currently there is an involuntary examination of a child every 15 minutes of every day and it is known that a significant percentage of these children do not meet the criteria. This was made clear during the 2017 Task Force when it was made known that an estimated 30% of the children being Baker Acted in Pinellas County did not meet the criteria. [3]

Once a child is Baker Acted, they are at risk of being forcibly treated with psychiatric drugs. This is done through what is called an emergency treatment order. In watching the body cam footage of the little girl in Jacksonville, who was so calm and polite while being transported to the psychiatric ward, Diane Stein said that the question must be asked “why was she injected with psychiatric drugs?” and “what could a 6-year-old child do that would warrant this and why was the mother kept out of the decision to give this child whatever she was injected with?”

While the overall issue of children in crisis is complicated, the simple fact remains that if parents were being brought into the process before the initiation of a Baker Act a large percentage of these situations would be resolved. The vast majority of parents in Florida are good willing people who would do anything to help their child but the fundamental right they have to decide what is in the best interest of their child is being taken away from them.

New Standards Help Utilities Locate & Measure Leaks in Pre- and Post-Rehabilitation Projects Typically Approved By Less Accurate CCTV Camera Inspection

We can tell 'where' & 'how much' CIPP leaks, but can't tell 'what' caused the leak or 'why' it wasn't found sooner. By collecting data by supplier & curing method we hope to tell 'when' it will fail.”

— Chuck Hansen, Founder & CEO, Hansen Analytics, LLC

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, February 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan Inc. announced its sponsorship of a Trenchless Technology Webinar titled "What is Measured, Improves: Maximizing Infiltration Reduction and Rehabilitation Effectiveness," to review new recommended standards to test and accept repairs and rehabilitation, including Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP).

Registration to attend this FREE webinar is now open.

As a pipe rehabilitation technique invented in the early 1970s, most CIPP projects typically rely on guidelines contained in ASTM 1216, where acceptance of CIPP is based on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) visual inspection only.

Today, nearly 50% of pipe repairs use CIPP as the preferred approach for trenchless rehabilitation to renew underground sewer & water pipes. Yet, the inability of CCTV to determine watertightness of newly installed CIPP and inability to determine if customer service restorations are watertight, have resulted in widely variable CIPP quality delivered to pipeline owners.

Where correctly installed CIPP lining may eliminate most leaks at joints and cracks, post-rehabilitation defect flows can often exceed pre-rehabilitation levels due to poor or uneven curing, contractor damage, and poor quality customer lateral reconnections.

Electro Scan's Trenchless Technology Webinar will discuss how utilities are adopting ASTM F2550 and machine-intelligent Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) technology to automatically locate & measure defects from pinholes to major leaks, and verify watertightness of customer service connections, before and after CIPP installation and curing.

Key learning objectives of the Trenchless Technology Webinar, include:
• How FELL technology works, and why it is reliable and repeatable.
• How Agencies are maximizing rehabilitation budgets by setting targeted priorities.
• Advantages of measuring rehabilitation effectiveness the same day, without waiting for a wet-weather event.
• Lessons Learned from informative Case Studies around the country.

In 2019, Electro Scan's Annual CIPP FELL Testing Report evaluated over 110,000 linear feet of CIPP, an increase of 15% from 2018, locating over 14,450 individual defects ranging from pinholes to large defects as defined by ASTM F2550.

Reaction from pipeline owners has been positive, while suppliers have been reluctant to change from less demanding pipe rehabilitation approval using CCTV visual inspection.

Several factors are driving the adoption of using the FELL standard for pre- and post-rehabilitation condition assessments.

First, many senior utility officials wish to position their utility for the future and to leave a significant legacy. Secondly, few academics or industry thought-leaders trusted results from CCTV, especially when projects were 'inspected' by the same contractors responsible for making repairs. Thirdly, small & large, domestic & international, and urban & rural utilities are now fully adopting FELL to show proper stewardship of underground assets and fast-track the reporting of rehabilitation effectiveness.

Additionally, rising sea levels in coastal communities and more severe weather events away from the coast due to climate change have shown engineers that conventional assessment and rehabilitation cycles have been less effective than anticipated.

Peer-reviewed standards published by ASTM (F2550), AWWA (M77), and JASCOMA (No. 12), in addition to benchmark testing by the USEPA, IKT, and numerous municipal utilities, have provided new guidelines and best practices for condition assessment. Especially to accurately test trenchless rehabilitation materials, such as CIPP, Spray-In-Place Pipes, and Spiral Wrap lining methods.

The new standards can also be used to assess common gravity & pressurized pipe materials, including Asbestos Cement, Brick, Cement-Mortar Lined Ductile Iron, Plastic, Reinforced Concrete, and Vitrified Clay Pipe, to establish baseline defect flow levels.

Electro Scan's Trenchless Technology Webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, 2020, at 1:00 PM US Eastern, 10:00 AM US Pacific, 6:00 PM London (GMT), and Sydney, Australia 5:00 AM (GMT+11).

Locating and reducing leaks in our infrastructure is a common challenge facing wastewater collection and water distribution systems, yet effective identification of has been challenging using legacy Acoustic Sensors, CCTV, Ground Penetrating Radar, Laser, Sonar, Smoke Testing, Dye Flood Testing, and Pressure Test results.

Too often agencies only learn that flow reduction goals were missed after having to wait for multi-year flow monitoring comparisons.

Ineffective prioritization, poor contractor performance, and inability to reliably certify repairs as watertight, especially after service restoration, are key factors responsible for ineffective rehabilitation outcomes.

Today, agencies are adopting machine-intelligent FELL, in accordance with ASTM F2550, to identify I/I and test rehabilitation as watertight.

Independent machine-generated results are replacing legacy ambiguous & subjective testing to (1) prioritize pipes with the highest infiltration, (2) test the watertightness of repairs & that rehabilitation meets contract requirements, and (3) compare before and after leakage results to get ‘same day’ estimated percent reductions in flow.

The need for enhanced quality assurance testing of CIPP was first published by Ken Kerri, PhD, PE, in 2015 as part of the 7th Edition, Volume 1, Operations & Maintenance of Wastewater Collection Systems, ISBN 978-1-59371-066-8, referenced by the US EPA to evaluate Capacity, Operation, and Maintenance (CMOM) program activities.

In the past, utilities and consulting engineers would display CCTV inspection results, combining Asset Management & Geographic Information Systems to help prioritize capital expenditure plans; however, missed visual defects often resulted in under-reporting of defects that can contribute to misguided condition assessments.

Combined with the inability to 'visually' assess the watertightness of repairs, replacements, and relining projects, FELL represents a new level of field accuracy and decision support.

Recently, Hansen Analytics LLC benchmarked CCTV and FELL inspections for 33,000 linear feet of pipe, assessing 429 customer service laterals where homes are connected to the agency's sewer main. In this benchmark, a certified CCTV operator identified five (5) defective customer tap locations, while Electro Scan's FELL technology identified 324, or 75%, of service connections with quantified leaks.

Last week, Electro Scan Inc. announced its global partnership with Innovyze Inc. to provide an end-to-end condition assessment & rehabilitation QA/QC solution.

Early adopters of FELL pipe testing are now able to re-test earlier surveyed CIPP liners to re-confirm leak locations and measure changes in leak severity. By measuring how leaks in CIPP get larger over time, surveyed at 1-to-3 year intervals, utilities can compute Remaining Useful Life (RUL) designations, by Supplier, Curing method, and Contractor, which is useful for capital planning and replacement and repair programs.

Electro Scan's webinar announcement coincides with the opening of the Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, the industry's preeminent trade show attended by 14,000 attendees and 600 Exhibitors from 50 countries.

"Legacy CCTV inspection is still appropriate to locate service laterals and obstructions, including construction debris, fats, oil, & grease, crossbores, and roots. However, its inability to locate or quantify leaks, especially in new or relined pipes, indicates that machine-intelligent FELL technology from Electro Scan is best suited to assess pipe conditions and rehabilitation effectiveness," stated Chuck Hansen, Founder & CEO, Hansen Analytics, and investor in Electro Scan Inc.

A leading subject matter expert on pipe condition assessment and former Chair, ASTM Subcommittee F36.20 Committee on Inspection and Renewal of Water and Wastewater Infrastructure, Hansen developed the nation’s first widely used CCTV coding system adopted by nearly 1,000 agencies. In 1989, the City of Houston used Hansen’s CCTV codes and companion software to inspect all 5,000 miles of sanitary sewer with data collected by 250 CCTV trucks. At the time his company was sold in 2007, Hansen customers were storing over 1 million CCTV reports that included nearly 7 million defects.

Restoring Human Rights & Dignity in the Field of Mental Health

Mental Health Watchdog has received hundreds of calls from parents whose children were sent for involuntary psychiatric examinations without their knowledge.

I want to empower parents and the public with the knowledge of what the Baker Act is and how it can be and is being abused so that they are aware of their rights under the law.”

— Carmen Miller, Esq.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On February 10th, the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a nonprofit mental health watchdog dedicated to exposing human rights abuse in the mental health industry, held a public seminar in downtown Clearwater at the CCHR Florida center to raise public awareness on the Baker Act. The guest speaker was Carmen Miller Esq., a Tampa Bay attorney with over 8 years’ experience as a Hillsborough County Public Defender and hundreds of Baker Act cases under her belt.

Carmen Miller said of her seminars, "I want to empower parents and the public with the knowledge of what the Baker Act is and how it can be and is being abused so that they are aware of their rights under the law".

In 2018 an astounding 36,078 involuntary psychiatric examinations were initiated on children in Florida, an almost 19% increase over the past four years. [1] Called a Baker Act, an involuntary examination of a minor allows for a child to be taken into custody and transported to a psychiatric facility without parental consent or knowledge.

Over the past several years, CCHR Florida has worked to ensure that parents, guardians and caregivers are consulted before a child is Baker Acted. As a result, numerous law enforcement offices across the state have adopted internal policies requiring that parents be consulted before the Baker Act can be initiated on a child.

CCHR Florida's public seminars on the Baker Act and other mental health topics are regularly held at their center on 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave. They are complimentary and open to the general public. To reserve a seat at the next seminar please call (727) 442 8820 or visit https://www.cchrflorida.org/events-list/.
