In The News
Novel Approach Leads to Potential Sepsis Prevention in Burn Patients
Immediately following severe burns, bacteria reach the wound from different sources, including the patient's skin, gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tracts and health care-related human contact. Within the wound, bacteria multiply, establish an infection and move from the infected burn wound into the bloodstream, causing serious complications like sepsis, multiple-organ failure and death.

How Cellulitis Can Be Treated
Cellulitis is an infection of the skin that typically happens after a break in the integrity of the skin. A break in the skin can be something as small as a paper cut or a similar wound or could be a crack in dry skin. Essentially, any break in the skin can become a doorway for bacteria to enter and create an infection in the skin. Surgery patients often have large or multiple incision sites where cellulitis can develop after their procedure, making proper wound care especially important until the wound is completely healed.
Some Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injuries Are Unavoidable
Joyce Pittman, Ph.D., R.N., from the University of South Alabama in Mobile, and colleagues conducted a descriptive, retrospective study to examine the proportion of HAPIs among patients in critical and progressive care units that are unavoidable and to determine risk factors that differentiate avoidable from unavoidable HAPIs. Data were included for 165 patients.

Is Health Literacy Linked With Diabetic Foot Outcomes?

This large review investigated the association between health literacy and diabetic foot disease outcomes and was led by the University of Tasmania’s Pam Chen.
