Wrong Chart? Dead Patient?: HHS Issues
Safety Tips for Using E-Health Records
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/16/2014 12:46:19 PM     Post Reply
Electronic health records (EHRs) are supposed to improve patient care, but only if the doctor is treating the right patient. "Wrong-patient charting is one of the more common safety problems in EHRs and can result in both data integrity and data confidentiality issues when protected health information is disclosed in the wrong chart and is missing from the right chart," says a new set of safety guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday. "Steps should be taken to ensure that the person using an EHR to care for a patient is addressing the intended patient," the safety

The perpetrator of the heinous crime that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2012, called an Oregon radio show on December 11, 2011 and talked about about mass murder. The show was Anarchy Radio, and Lanza called it using the pseudonym "Greg." In audio provided by the NY Daily News, Lanza can be heard talking about Travis, the chimpanzee who attacked and ripped Charla Nash´s face off in 2009. Lanza explained that the chimp was 20-years old in human years--Lanza was 20 when he committed his heinous crime--and he said Travis brought up questions we must deal

GOP senator wants to require
photo IDs for food stamp purchases

The federal government could prevent food stamp fraud by requiring Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program beneficiaries to show a photo ID when purchasing items with their benefits, according to Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter. Moved by the October outage of the Electronic Benefits Transfer system in over a dozen states (including Louisiana) — which resulted in many EBT cards showing no credit limits and some beneficiaries reacting by purchasing well beyond their limits — Vitter introduced a bill Wednesday to require food stamp recipients to show a photo ID when making SNAP purchases. “Food Stamps have more than doubled in cost

Harvey Weinstein has set his sights squarely on the National Rifle Association. The “Shakespeare in Love” producer told Howard Stern on his radio show Wednesday that the NRA is a “disaster area” before revealing a secret project. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” he said. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” Weinstein said the movie was a feature length motion picture “like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington’” and that when people

The case of Jahi McMath, the 13-year-old Oakland girl who was declared brain dead Dec. 12 following complications from tonsil and sinus surgery, hasn´t ended yet. Insisting Jahi was still alive and should remain on the ventilator that was keeping her heart beating, the girl´s family fought Children´s Hospital Oakland and was finally allowed by a judge to take her body into their custody. On Jan. 5, the body was moved to an undisclosed facility where, according to the family´s attorney, Christopher Dolan, "her health is improving." Jahi´s saga gives rise to several conflicting strains of accusation. The family and

Oscar nomination morning may bring joy to the chosen few, but "few" is the operative words -- the list of who´s out is always going to be longer than the list of who´s in. A few shock omissions are par for the course, but it seems this morning´s announcement brought even more than usual, and in a multitude of categories -- from Tom Hanks to Emma Thompson to Sarah Polley to Lana del Rey. After the jump, we list a few of the no-shows that surprised us most. - Remember when Tom Hanks was touted as a likely double nominee? His

Benghazi murders were preventable,
the White House coverup shameful

The incompetence and irresponsibility at Benghazi turns out to be even worse than everyone in Washington thought it was. A bipartisan Senate intelligence committee finds the murder of the American ambassador and three other Americans was preventable, and the explanations the White House first gave for the debacle were lies. This is what the Republicans and other conservatives have been saying for months, derided and disputed by defenders of President Obama, and now these are the on-the-record conclusions of the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee, made up of equal numbers of Democratic and Republican senators. The committee said the State Department was

"He will announce later today," a source close to Gillespie tells The Hill. The former RNC chairman, close advisor to President George W. Bush and powerful lobbyist has long been expected to run against Warner. The Hill reported last Thursday that Gillespie had told Republicans he would definitely run and had begun staffing his campaign. Gillespie plans to announce his bid via an online video and website, according to the source. Republicans are excited about Gillespie´s candidacy, and believe he might be able to give the

Pentagon´s hands tied on hunting

The U.S. military cannot hunt down and kill people responsible for the deadly 2012 attack on an American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as long as the terrorists are not officially deemed members or affiliates of al Qaeda, newly declassified transcripts from congressional hearings show. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey in testimony on Oct. 10 said the Pentagon’s hands are tied because the groups involved are not covered by the Authorization for Use of Military Force. The AUMF law allows U.S. attacks anywhere in the world only on al Qaeda and “associated forces.” “The individuals related in the Benghazi attack,

Sir Hew Strachan, an expert on the history of war, says that the president’s strategic failures in Afghanistan and Syria have crippled America’s position in the world. President Obama is “chronically incapable” of military strategy and falls far short of his predecessor George W. Bush, according to one of Britain’s most senior military advisors. Sir Hew Strachan, an advisor to the Chief of the Defense Staff, told The Daily Beast that the United States and Britain were guilty of total strategic failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Obama’s attempts to intervene on behalf of the Syrian rebels “has left them

13 House Democrats offer bill demanding

Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the governemnt to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio. The bill, sponsoed by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and 12 other House Democrats, would look at how those media are used to "advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate." The Hate Crime Reporting Act, H.R. 3878, is meant to update a 20-year old study from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). That study, delivered to Congress in 1993, looked at hate speech on radio, TV and computer bulletin boards.

The first time I ate at Villard Michel Richard, the latest restaurant to dance among the frescoes and marble pilasters of the Villard mansion in Midtown, I strongly suspected that I was in an awful hotel restaurant. This seemed like a connect-the-dots conclusion. It’s a restaurant. It’s in a hotel, the New York Palace. And it was awful. That didn’t make any sense, though. Born in Brittany but a star in the United States, trained in pastry but adept in every corner of the kitchen, Michel Richard has been one of the most respected chefs in this country since the 1980s.

WASHINGTON — More than 80 presidents of colleges and universities will gather with President Barack Obama at the White House Thursday as the administration kicks off a campaign to encourage low-income students to attend college. Robert Zimmer, president of the University of Chicago, Kenneth Ender, president of Harper College in Palatine, and Steven Bahls, president of Augustana College in Rock Island, are expected to attend, a White House official said. The campaign is being launched after the White House secured more than 100 commitments from schools, non-profits, foundations and businesses to further its goal. White House officials said only

Gov. Chris Christie beefed up his response to the George Washington Bridge scandal on Thursday, naming a new legal team to conduct an internal review of what led to a controversy that’s become a major headache for the New Jersey Republican. The legal team will also be tasked with helping Christie’s administration cooperate with the U.S. attorney’s office and “other appropriate inquiries and requests for information,” said a statement from the governor’s office. Randy Mastro, a former assistant U.S. attorney, will lead the team, the statement said. Mastro served as chief of staff and as a deputy mayor to former New

Internal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emails show extensive collaboration between top agency officials and leading environmentalist groups, including overt efforts to coordinate messaging and pressure the fossil fuel industry. The emails, obtained by the Energy and Environment Legal Institute (EELI) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, could fuel an ongoing controversy over EPA policies that critics say are biased against traditional sources of energy. Emails show EPA used official events to help environmentalist groups gather signatures for petitions on agency rulemaking, incorporated advance copies of letters drafted by those groups into official statements, and worked with environmentalists to publicly

n 1984, David cast his first Republican ballot — for Reagan, who was running for reelection against Walter Mondale. “I did so because he was opposing the efforts of the Sandinista Marxists to turn Nicaragua into a socialist gulag like Cuba. I had supported Fidel; I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice.” Foreign policy was vitally important, yes, but David’s thinking at large had shifted. In 1999, he wrote, “As a leftist, I had developed habits of mind that caused me to look at ‘classes’ rather than individuals, at social structures and general paradigms rather than particular events

A man armed with a semi-automatic handgun and a large hunting knife shot and killed a shopper and a store worker before he was shot by police at a supermarket in northern Indiana late Wednesday night, authorities said. Police remained on the scene in Elkhart this morning collecting evidence and have searched the suspected gunman´s home two miles away, police said. So far, they have no evidence the shooter knew either of the women he shot, who were 20 and 44, but they believe he planned the shooting in advance, a police spokesman said.

When the Framers were putting together the Constitution in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787, they knew the states would not adopt it without written guarantees that the new central government would respect natural rights. The supporters of the Constitution promised political leaders in the states that the written guarantees would soon be added as amendments, and they were. By late 1791, the Bill of Rights was ratified and added to the new Constitution. The purpose of the Bill of Rights was to assure all in America that their natural rights -- areas of human choices for which a permission slip from

A group of cyber security professionals is warning that the U.S. government has failed to implement fixes to protect the HealthCare.gov website from hackers, some three months after experts first pointed out the problem. David Kennedy, head of computer security consulting firm TrustedSec LLC, told Reuters that the government has yet to plug more than 20 vulnerabilities that he and other security experts reported to the government shortly after HealthCare.gov went live on October 1. Hackers could steal personal information, modify data or attack the personal computers of the website´s users, he said. They could also damage the infrastructure of

  



California’s Chicken Law

In early December, Missouri’s Attorney General Chris Koster told a gathering of farmers that he would soon file suit against the state of California. Recent legislation passed in California limiting out-of-state egg imports has affronted Koster’s conception of the Constitution’s Commerce Clause; he’s headed to court, much to the delight of the Missouri farmers in his audience. To envision a bunch of farmers sitting around hashing out the Commerce Clause is somewhat mind-boggling. Farmers are forced to be competent in a lot of fields—pun fully intended—but expertise in the most thorny and controversial parts of the Constitution would

Liberal´s reaction to Omaha, Nebraska police exposing the ignorant thug mindset behind the shocking video of a black toddler cursing is yet another example of liberals getting it all wrong. It´s all about making themselves feel good -- tolerant, superior, and compassionate. Rather than severely condemning the child´s parents for abusing the toddler, liberals are ripping into the police, calling them racists. The Omaha Police Officers´ Association is catching heck from the city´s police chief, the ACLU, and at least one community leader. These liberals accuse the police of antagonizing the city´s large black community. Insistent on viewing everything along

As a binge TV watcher, I’ve relished devouring serial dramas in advertising-free gulps. But “Breaking Bad” — the story about a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned clandestine meth-cooking badass — didn’t appeal. Then Anthony Hopkins declared it an “epic work” with “the best actors I’ve ever seen.” Midway through Season 2, I understand why Walter White is heroic. As men increasingly check out of work, marriage and fatherhood, it’s hard not to root for a man fiercely determined to secure his family’s future before dying — despite his morally abhorrent methods. That there are dramatically fewer men willing and able to

As the White House celebrates Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday with a Barack Obama-hosted Saturday dance, some 327,166 babies aborted by Planned Parenthood won’t get to celebrate their birth days. And with the $1.2 billion refreshing Planned Parenthood coffers, the same fate awaits hundreds of thousands more babies destined to lose their lives to taxpayer-funded abortion. Days before Michelle Obama’s White House birthday celebrations this year, it was revealed that Planned Parenthood got $540.6 million in government grants in 2013 from her husband’s administration. “Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of

Did you hear about the students at a famous university who have gotten upset because a member of a small racial minority there was pictured in an ad directed at the student body? For some reason, the national media doesn't find this anti-diversity position of much interest. However, local media have the story. WTOP-TV Washington reports: A Giant grocery store ad welcoming back Howard University students from winter break has rankled the Howard community because the ad pictured a young, white female. The vast majority of students at Howard, a historically black university, are African-American.
