Describimos la vida y la obra de Florence Nightingale. Es considerada una pionera en la práctica de la enfermería. Su participación en la Guerra de Crimea, junto con otras 38 enfermeras voluntarias, fue principalmente en la limpieza y acondicionamiento del hospital de Scutari, haciendo que la tasa de mortalidad bajara del 40% al 2%, siendo este su mayor éxito. Solía hacer sus rondas nocturnas en las salas bajo la luz de una lámpara, por lo que fue nombrada “La dama de la lámpara”. La reina Victoria le concedió la Cruz Roja Real y fue la primera mujer en recibir la Orden del Mérito en 1907. Tenía sólidos conocimientos de Estadística y Matemáticas, útiles para su trabajo de enfermera. A cien años de su muerte, sirvan estas palabras de homenaje a la profesión de Enfermería, y a quien es considerada precursora de la enfermería moderna en Argentina y en el mundo entero.

Manchester triage mts
In 99.9% of companies, prioritizing is a problem when it comes to getting tasks done. However, in healthcare, prioritizing incorrectly can cost someone’s life. This is where the Manchester protocol comes in, helping to prioritize care after triage.
This protocol is one of those simple and practical techniques that, if well implemented, greatly facilitates the organization of the care process. It is extremely visual. Almost as if it was (or is) a “management at sight” to deal with care, helping to save more lives and streamline the patient triage process. So, without further ado, let’s get to the content:
The technique is quite simple, and consists of classifying patients arriving at the hospital into 5 levels. To perform this classification, the method uses 5 colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue.
Each color symbolizes the state in which the patient is, thus determining the severity of the case. In the same way, each color used determines a maximum time for care to occur, thus establishing care priorities. To make it easier, we have a table that better visually shows the meaning of the colors and the time of care, below:
Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust is an Acute NHS Foundation Trust that operates 9 hospitals across Greater Manchester. It was formed by the merger of Manchester Central University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust on 1 October 2017.. It was formed by the merger of Manchester Central University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust on 1 October 2017...
The trust is expected to take over North Manchester General Hospital in 2019, currently managed by Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, making it the largest hospital trust in England.
Prior to the formation of the new trust, the Competition and Markets Authority decided that, while the merger would substantially reduce competition between health services in the area, the benefits to patients were “more significant.”
In January 2018, the trust secured a £125 million loan from the Department of Health’s Independent Trust Fund. It will use £50 million to deploy the Allscripts electronic patient record, already in use at Wythenshawe, at the Manchester hub site. It will also enable the reconfiguration of the accident and emergency departments with the separation of major and minor incident flow, and a new primary care assessment space at the front doors, back order maintenance at Wythenshawe and £12 million liquidity support….
