What can be done to prevent my hospitalized patients from getting bedsores?
Here is some good, current research that I found in Nursing Times, a well-respected publication. It is a double-blind, peer reviewed study, and confirms that movement or repositioning helps prevent pressure damage. You can read the full article here: https://www.nursingtimes.net/clinical-archive/tissue-viability/pressure-ulcer-education-5-keeping-patients-moving-13-01-2020/ .There are a few references within the paper you may want to check out; you're likely to find more in a fee-based database--specifically CINAHL--if you want to perform comprehensive research.. .
What should my facility do to prepare for the Corona virus that has just come to the United States?
The CDC notes that the "2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), Wuhan, China." is a rapidly evolving situation, and that the agency will provide updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance. This information is available at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/summary.html, which was updated yesterday (1/28/2020).
What is the difference between "whom" and "who," and when should each be used?
"Who" is used as a subject, as in "Who is going to the store?" On the other hand, "whom" should be used as the object of a verb or preposition, as in "With whom was he travelling?" It may be helpful to substitute words like “he,” "she,” “him,” or “her.” If “he” or “she” fits--use WHO; alternatively, if “him” or “her” fits--use WHOM..
