    Mobile Technology is a Win-Win for Meadowlands Nurses and Patients

    By Kate ONeill, DNP, RN

    National headlines are reporting something that most providers already knew - medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Hospital acquired conditions, like catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI’s) are one of the most common adverse events in clinical practice. In the spring of 2016, Meadowland’s Hospital Department of Nursing, Nancy Brobeck, Dona Ortiz, and CEO Felicia Karsos embarked on a strategic improvement project with nurse Kate ONeill using mobile technology from iCareQuality. The ICU and Medical-Surgical nurses set out to improve frontline care delivery using the CDI Mobile Toolkit to reduce adverse events, and win the war on hospital infections. read more ›

    New Successful Treatment For Patients With Wounds

    Our wound specialist at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center, Joe Del Duca, showed extremely successful results in treating wounds with medical honey. According to Joe, dead tissue is rejected faster, and the wounds heal more rapidly. What is more, changing dressings is less painful, since the poultices are easier to remove without damaging the newly formed layers of skin. Even wounds, which consistently refused to heal for years can, in our experience, be brought under control with Medi-honey – and this frequently happens within a few weeks. read more ›
