    Virginia’s hospital network is second in the nation for safety, according to Leapfrog’s Spring 2022 ranking — down one place since fall 2021. North Carolina moved up from second in the fall 2021 ranking. The Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association noted that Virginia is still improving, with 59.2 percent of the Commonwealth’s hospitals receiving an “A” grade in the latest ranking after 56.2 percent received the grade in the fall. “Virginia hospitals are rooted in communities all across the Commonwealth from large cities and counties in our population centers to those that serve our rural and mountainous areas. While each hospital is unique, they all share a commitment to delivering high-quality care and protecting patient safety,” said Peter Mulkey, Clinch Valley Health chief executive officer and the chair of the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) Board of Directors.

Process and structure measures analyzed include intensive care unit physician staffing, the culture of leadership structures and systems, nursing workforce, and hand hygiene. Outcome measures analyzed include falls and trauma,...
    A former hospital staffer suspected of killing nine patients nearly two decades ago has been arrested after being charged in one of their deaths - while wearing a hoodie bearing the message 'I don’t f*****g care.' Cops had been searching for Jennifer Anne Hall, 41, since last week, after charging the ex-respiratory therapist with first-degree murder for the 2002 death of 75-year-old Fern Franco - one of nine people who died of cardiac collapse between December 16, 2001, and May 16, 2002, at Hedrick Medical Center in Missouri. Hall, who worked at the 49-bed hospital during that same span, quickly came under suspicion for the slew of  'code blue' incidents - which were viewed by doctors and nurses at the hospital as 'medically suspicious,' an arrest affidavit shows.  Hospital brass eventually put Hall was on administrative leave on May 18, 2002 - two days after the death of Franco, whom cops contend was the last of her victims. Now, the long-suspected angel of death faces first-degree murder charges for Franco's death, after after being arrested by Jefferson County police in Kansas Thursday. Photos...
    After seven weeks in a hospital, Kyleen Waltman is finally home. The South Carolina mom sustained horrific injuries on March 21 when three dogs mauled her as she was out walking. Doctors had to amputate both her arms and remove her colon, and she may lose a leg if grafts aren’t successful. Her shoulder bones had to be removed which means she may not be able to get prosthetic arms. She also had skin tears and bites from her head to her feet, and has suffered a range of setbacks during her long stay in a hospital. “It was just one of the most gruesome animal attacks that I’ve ever seen in my career,” Lieutenant Jeffrey Hines of the Abbeville County Sheriff’s Office testified at a court hearing last month for the dog owner, Justin Minor, who is accused of multiple violations of animal-control laws. The seven weeks in a hospital were agonizing for Waltman, who was so traumatized when she first realized she’d lost her arms that she had to be sedated again. In a Tuesday...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia became the first major U.S. city to reinstate its indoor mask mandate on Monday after reporting a sharp increase in coronavirus infections, with the city's top health official saying she wanted to forestall a potential new wave driven by an omicron subvariant.Confirmed COVID-19 cases have risen more than 50% in 10 days, the threshold at which the city's guidelines call for people to wear masks indoors, said Dr. Cheryl Bettigole, the health commissioner. Health officials believe the recent spike is being driven by the highly transmissible BA.2 subvariant of omicron, which has spread rapidly throughout Europe and Asia, and has become dominant in the U.S. in recent weeks."If we fail to act now, knowing that every previous wave of infections has been followed by a wave of hospitalizations, and then a wave of deaths, it will be too late for many of our residents," said Bettigole, noting about 750 Philadelphia residents died in the wintertime omicron outbreak. "This is our chance to get ahead of the pandemic, to put our masks on until we have more information...
