Medical bracelets can put patients at risk: Coroner

October 31, 2013 – 12:01AM

Patients are being put at risk by poorly designed medical bracelets, which do not clearly display critical information about potentially dangerous allergies, a coroner has found.

The warning comes after a woman with a penicillin allergy had a cardiac arrest when she was injected with the drug, after staff at the Bundaberg Base Hospital failed to notice an alert on her bracelet.

In findings handed down this week, coroner David O’Connell said it was “very clear” medical staff often could not differentiate between regular jewellery and specially-designed medical bracelets with warnings.

But a popular bracelet manufacturer, the MedicAlert Foundation, says it has no plans to remove items from its product line and insists its jewellery provides clear warnings when worn properly.

The coroner found a penicillin injection caused 74-year-old Marcia Loveday to suffer a severe allergic reaction and a cardiac arrest on July 19, 2010.

Mrs Loveday, who had a history of poor health and arrived at the hospital with chest and abdominal pain, died four days later. However, the coroner ruled that the injection did not hasten her death.

Only after the injection was given did hospital staff realise Mrs Loveday’s silver bracelet had the words “Medic Alert” and the international medical symbol of two snakes entwined around a rod, known as the Rod of Asclepius.

The bracelet’s reverse side included her phone number and the words “ALLERGIC TO PENICILLIN, MINOMYCIN, & CECLOR”.

“Mrs Loveday’s bracelet resembled a piece of well worn jewellery. Apart from the engraving on it there was no distinctive feature of its appearance,” Mr O’Connell said.

He called on manufacturers to create products with prominent warnings that placed “function over fashion”.

“I am very firmly of the opinion that function is the sole objective if this item is to perform its intended task. Fashion must only ever represent a very small element in the overall consideration of its design,” Mr O’Connell said.

Australia MedicAlert Foundation chief executive Sandra Turner said the organisation’s local bracelets and necklaces had displayed the Rod of Asclepius emblem since 1971, and the products adhered to Australian and international standards.

“It is disappointing to note the claims that some Queensland medical workers do not recognise the international symbol for medicine, which dates back to Greek mythology,” she said.

“The tragic death of Mrs Loveday flags the need for greater awareness training to healthcare and emergency service professionals to better acquaint themselves with the MedicAlert emblem and medical ID products in general.”

Ms Turner said the organisation ran education programs and encouraged its 160,000 Australian members to check their jewellery regularly to ensure warnings were legible.

She said some customers were reluctant to wear jewellery with overt warnings about serious medical conditions, and that was why they sold a wide range of products.

In the findings into Mrs Loveday’s death, the coroner also called for Queensland Health to implement changes to any hospitals with the same patient triage setup as the Bundaberg Base Hospital had in 2010.

He also called for Queensland Health and the Queensland Ambulance Service to work with doctors to create education material, and to investigate whether a medical wristband alert system could be devised.

Mr O’Connell did not recommend that a nurse and doctor at the hospital be investigated over Mrs Loveday’s death.

North Korea’s crop imports from China hit annual high in Sept.

SEOUL, Oct. 30 (Yonhap) — North Korea’s crop imports from China more than doubled to hit a yearly high in September, data showed Wednesday.

According to the data compiled by Kwon Tae-jin, a senior researcher at the Korea Rural Economic Institute, North Korea imported 67,208 tons of grains and legumes such as flour, rice, corn and bean in September from its neighboring country, compared with 26,804 tons a month earlier.

The surge was attributed mainly to Pyongyang’s increased imports of corn. The impoverished nation bought a total of 50,613 tons of corn last month, nearly nine times the amount imported the previous month, the data showed.

“The big increase in imports would either mean that Pyongyang is running out of its stock amid the regime’s efforts to increase the ration to people since this spring or that it is try to stabilize market prices,” Kwon said.

“Factoring in the forecast of good harvests for the autumn, the North is expected to enjoy a relatively stable supply of crops at least for the rest of the year,” he added.

Korean Air to provide 150 billion won to its troubled sister shipping company

 

SEOUL, Oct. 30 (Yonhap) — Korean Air Lines Co., South Korea’s top air carrier, said Wednesday it has decided to provide 150 billion won (US$141 million) to Hanjin Shipping to help ease its temporary liquidity squeeze.

The decision to offer financial aid to its sister shipping company was made earlier Wednesday, according to the carrier.

The aid comes as Hanjin Shipping has suffered liquidity woes due to a protracted slump in the shipping industry following the 2008 financial crisis.

Hanjin Shipping is affiliated with Hanjin Group, one of South Korea’s largest family-run conglomerates, though it has been managing its businesses independently for years.

Hanjin Shipping has been run by Choi Eun-young since her husband Cho Soo-ho died in 2006. Cho was a younger brother of Cho Yang-ho, the chairman of Hanjin Group.

Korean Air is a flagship unit of Hanjin Group.

Torcedores começam a receber cobrança por ingresso solicitado para a Copa do Mundo da FIFA Brasil 2014

ingresso copa

 

Torcedores de vários locais do Brasil estão recebendo notificações  através de torpedos, emails e extratos bancários sobre o pagamento  dos ingressos da Copa do Mundo de 2014.  A cobrança seria das operadoras de cartão de crédito.  O sorteio dos ingressos aconteceu na última terça-feira (29) em Manchester, na presença de representantes da Caixa Econômica Federal e do Ministério do Esporte, além de um tabelião.

Segundo torcedores, a Fifa ainda não enviou nenhum aviso de confirmação da aquisição dos ingressos.

De acordo com os pagantes, algumas categorias estão diferentes das pedidas originalmente. Segundo David Alvarenga, que já garantiu os tíquetes para a competição, foi debitado o valor R$ 1.980, referente a dois ingressos na Categoria 3 para a Abertura do evento, contrariando o pedido prioritário para a Categoria 2.

No momento da compra, a Fifa perguntava se o comprador aceitava ser recolocado em outra seção, caso a escolhida não estivesse disponível. Na última terça-feira (29), a Fifa anunciou que o início de uma nova fase para a compra dos ingressos seria dia 11 de novembro e não dia 5, como havia sido informado anteriormente.

A redação web entrou em contato com a Fifa questionando a falta de notificação por parte da federação a cerca da aquisição dos ingressos, mas até a publicação dessa matéria não houve resposta.

Artworks face a tough life

Vandalised public art in Canberra

 

Canberra, sometimes it really feels like you can’t have nice things. To think that those cute little blokes climbing the staircase in the city need to be protected by CCTV and flood lighting lest they be ripped away as a souvenir of a Civic piss-up.

The sculpture On the Staircase has just been restored after repeated serious vandal attacks, and to have had to get the artist, Keld Moseholm, back for Tuesday’s unveiling should be a moment that makes Canberrans cringe.

”It’s been very frustrating for me to see what happened,” a restrained Moseholm said on Tuesday. He could have been forgiven for adding, ”What is wrong with you people!”

<i></i> 

Also in the city, the ACT Veterans’ Memorial near Civic Square has in the past had to have the large glass ball at its centre replaced with one of granite after being smashed. That’s a veterans’ memorial.

The consequence of these attacks is that anything that is installed has to be virtually indestructible and come with a whopping price tag. That feeds into the criticism of the art program and is a big factor in why so many people say, ”Enough with all this public art.”

When you see how much damage a drunk can cause to a heavy-duty installation, it’s little wonder spontaneous, cheap, or what they call ”ephemeral” public art just doesn’t survive.

Off the top of my head I can reel off a few examples.

Most memorable were the vicious attacks, including decapitation, on Down by the Lake with Liz and Phil, the nude statue of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip installed in 1995. That vandalism may have been political. Perhaps republicans attacking an easy image of the Queen, or monarchists trying to preserve her dignity.

There has been no such motive for the smashing up and theft of the large models from outside the dinosaur museum, or even more depressing, the bashing to bits of a whimsical herd of fibreglass zebras set up at Lake George in 2010.

Director of artsACT David Whitney says vandal-proofing public art ranked alongside public safety issues in the commissioning of new works.

”Some of the works we commission we know have a half life of 10,000 years. They won’t disappear through natural attrition.”

That we need our sculptures made tough as steel and bolted down must inhibit the artistic freedom of people like Moseholm. They have to work like Ikea designers, except instead of having to restrain their design by making it fit into a cardboard box, they have to consider what a drunken grub might do stumbling down from the nightclubs to the casino at 3am.

Still Mr Whitney thinks vandalism in the city is on the way down. And he believed some of the latest installations there, such as The Other Side of Midnight (a doll in a pink dress with carousel dogs on either side) achieved a lighter, fun feel while being sturdy enough to last.

”We see kids climbing all over it, which is what the artist wanted. And it’s escaped any form of vandalism or damage. All we’ve had to do is clean off scuff marks from the kids’ shoes.”

I think Canberra needs more public art, but not necessarily the expensive, and therefore divisive, works commissioned through government processes.

Having come from this city of roundabouts, when I went on a driving holiday in France recently I was struck by how villages and towns adorned their roundabouts with flower beds and sculptures.

Some of these scenes looked even less robust than our ill-fated zebras (now at a safer home at Pegasus Riding School), made of materials like hay bales or timber.

My first thought was that if a suburban community group in Canberra set something like this up, it wouldn’t survive the weekend. My second thought was that if the vandals hadn’t got to them, setting a hay bale witch alight like an inner north hedge, the ACT government would, efficiently removing them because they hadn’t been ”approved”.

I still fear for the first fate, but Mr Whitney assured me fear of government fun police is not justified, pointing out how he and others in the government loved seeing things like a Super Mario figure tacked onto a pipe in Belconnen a couple of years back.

He encouraged the likes of yarn bombers (guerilla knitters who decorate public places in coloured wool) or amateur sculptors, so long as they didn’t do things like obstruct roads or paths.

”We’d like people to talk to us or parks people in TAMS, but if ephemeral work appears, we don’t ring up a squad to go around and demolish it,” Mr Whitney said.

With that in mind, Canberra, what do you say to more public art and especially street art, especially the fun and the unexpected?

What do you say to taking some of those dull, grass-covered roundabouts and giving them over to something arty, pretty or even just silly?

And if we did see some of this spring up, can we resist bashing it to bits?
