Oxford University Hospitals granted foundation trust status

first_img Dr Paul Altmann, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Chief Clinical Information Officer, commented, “Being awarded Digital Hospital of the Year is recognition of all the hard work that has been going on across the Trust. We implemented a number of solutions over the past few years to improve our digital strategy, including plans to take paper out of the system, improve clinical deci- sion support and make use of the rich sources of information to further transform care.“We have advanced plans to continue to innovate and deliver a digital platform to be used to improve clinical performance, change models of care and manage care in ways which are not possible on paper.” Jessica Prince, a second-year medic at St John’s College, told Cherwell, “This is fantastic news as it recognises the Trust’s achievements establishing fully digital hospitals by making all patients’ medical history and care requirements available on the Trust’s electronic patient record (EPR) system.” “I want to take this opportunity to thank our fantastic staff for their continued commitment to delivering high quality healthcare for all our patients. We recognise that becoming a foundation trust does not in itself solve the challenges facing us or the NHS nationwide. We will continue to focus on sustaining delivering safe and high quality care, living within our means and meeting national standards in a very difficult financial climate.” Dame Fiona Caldicott, Chairman of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, highlighted the benefits the change will make to services, stating, “Being a Foundation Trust will enable us to continue to improve our services by increasing the involvement of patients, staff and the local communities that we serve through our membership. It means that our Council of Governors will now play an important role in holding the Board of Di- rectors to account, appointing non-executive Directors and contributing to the strategic direction of the Trust. “This is a most exciting event for the Trust and a vote of confidence in the achievements and capability of our staff.” Since being granted the foundation trust status, Oxford University Hospi- tals has been named Digital Hospital of the Year. The Trust administers over 20,000 drugs every day electronically and medicine requests can be made online. Patient information can be stored, diagnostic tests can be ordered and doctors can view results electronically. This implementation of an electronic patient record is seen to be one of the most advanced systems in the NHS and is used by more than 8,000 members of staff every day. Monitor, the regulator of of NHS Services in England, has awarded Oxford University Hospitals with foundation trust status after a thorough examination of the hospital’s qual- ity of care, finances, governance and performance against national standards.This included scrutiny by the NHS Trust Development Authority as well as the Care Quality Commission giving Oxford University Hospitals an overall rating of ‘Good’ in May last year. John Radcliffe, Churchill, Horton, and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre are now free from central government control and able to decide how to improve their services. The foundation trust also allows the hospi- tals to retain any surpluses they generate to invest in new services and borrow money to support these investments. They are now accountable to their local communities, and students and locals will be allowed to have more of a say in the way their hospital is run, through a Council of Governors. This includes both elected and ap- pointed public and staff governors, who will play an important role in holding the Board to account.Sir Jonathan Michael, the recently retired Chief Executive of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, told Cherwell, “The work we have done to become a foundation trust has involved a journey of improvement that needed to happen anyway. Foun- dation trust status has been a stimulus to us to pursue this improvement but was not a destination in itself. “Becoming a foundation trust is recognition of the work we have done to improve the quality and efficiency of our services for patients and the capability we have to continue these improvements. It also provides more local accountability through our membership and Council of Governors.center_img “Having the EPR system will enable doctors to access important patient information at all hospitals that are part of the trust. This will make diagnoses a much easier, stress-free experience for both the doctor and patient as well as helping to improve accurate recording. I am excited to see the efforts taken by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust be implemented in other hospitals.”last_img read more

Bayonne Briefs

first_imgThe Bayonne Nature Club adopted the use of nets to catch plastics on Bayonne’s western shore near Rutkowski Park. The group conducted a shoreline cleanup on Friday, May 4, scooping up plastic cigar filters, empty bottles of alcohol and soft drinks, candy wrappers, shoes, and a child’s scooter. Much of the garbage likely made it to the shore through Bayonne’s underground sewage system, where garbage often builds. During times of intense precipitation, the sewage overflows through more than 30 outflows surrounding the city. Also, at Rutkowski Park, vegetation is starting to grow back along a pathway that had to be dug up to remove chromium. Tree saplings have been planted, and native vegetation is expected to sprout again soon. ×The Bayonne Nature Club adopted the use of nets to catch plastics on Bayonne’s western shore near Rutkowski Park.

The site of the potential ferry would be about a half mile east of the 34th Street Light Rail station on the southern shore of the base.Then in April, the Bayonne City Council issued a request for proposals for a ferry operator. NY Waterway, the only private ferry operator in Hudson County, is the most likely company to respond.The grant comes from the USDOT Passenger Ferry Grant program (49 U.S.C. 5307(h)), which, according to the USDOT website, “provides competitive funding for projects that support passenger ferry systems in urbanized areas. These funds constitute a core investment in the enhancement and revitalization of public ferry systems in the nation’s urbanized areas.”Mayor James Davis said in a press release, “Commuter ferry service is a game changer for Bayonne, and this federal grant is another step forward for our city toward a brighter future with millions in new tax revenue and an opportunity for our community to thrive.”center_img Plans to move Polish JC statue draws criticism from DavisA member of the Polish senate went on a Polish radio station last week, calling the effort by Jersey City government to move a 34-foot statue at Exchange Place three blocks away “scandalous.” The statue, erected in 1991, is called the “Katyn Memorial,” and depicts a Polish soldier being stabbed in the back. It memorializes 20,000 Polish victims of a 1940 massacre carried out by the Soviet secret police.Mayor Steven Fulop, in response, called the senator a “known anti-Semite” and stuck to his guns about his decision to move it three blocks west – the location originally designated in 1986 when it was gifted to Jersey City from Poland.Meanwhile, Mayor James Davis offered Bayonne as a landing spot for the monument. It wouldn’t be the first time Bayonne would adopt a Jersey City monument. The Teardrop Memorial, gifted to the United States by Russia, was originally planned for Jersey City, but it now it stands as one of Bayonne’s greatest destinations.“As mayor I would be proud to have it at one of our many wonderful parks, maybe at Rutkowski Park which is named in honor of one of Bayonne’s most prominent Polish-American leaders,” Davis said last week. Demand is high for industrial space in NJThe square footage of space for which industrial leases were signed in the first quarter of the year dropped in New Jersey by 27 percent, according to the Wall Street Journal. That doesn’t mean that space is sitting vacant. Quite the opposite. The demand for space is exceeding the supply, and as a result rents have increased by nearly 12 percent, according to the real estate services firm JLL.That trend is no different in Bayonne, where Ports of America recently sold 90 acres of land on the former Military Ocean Terminal Base, currently occupied by 20th Century-era warehouses, to Lincoln Equities Group for the construction of 1.6 million square feet of new industrial warehouses by 2021. What entity will lease the warehouse is unknown, but the buyer said that it expects 2,700 permanent jobs to come from the site. After years of fighting Christie, state workers to ratify contractThe 32,000 state employees who are members of the Communications Workers of America, who have been working without a contract since 2015, have ratified a new agreement, according to NJ Advance Media. Hundreds of Bayonne residents are CWA union members. The workers will receive two raises of 2 percent each and retroactive bonuses for longevity that had been withheld by the Christie administration. The contract expires in June 2019, and negotiations are under way for the next deal.Murphy signs bill allowing property taxes as charitable giftsGov. Phil Murphy signed into law on Friday legislation that allows NJ homeowners to treat their property taxes as charitable gifts, according to the Associated Press. The Legislature passed the measure after the federal tax overhaul, which puts a $10,000 cap on property tax deductions, was signed by President Donald Trump.Under New Jersey’s law, school districts and towns may set up charitable funds to which taxpayers can make donations instead of paying property taxes. The federal tax law does not cap the amount of deductions for charitable gifts.Port Authority police superintendent abruptly retiresPort Authority Police Superintendent Michael Fedorko retired Monday, a move coming at the same time that his department is under investigation over claims that radio host Rush Limbaugh received a police escort, NJ.com reports. Fedorko, 73, had been the Port Authority’s director of public safety since 2009 and was paid more than $220,000 a year. Edward Cetnar will be acting superintendent. The Port Authority’s inspector general has been investigating reports that Limbaugh was given a rush-hour police escort from Newark Liberty International Airport to a charity gala in Manhattan.Costco officially signs Bayonne leaseRD Management LLC, one of the nation’s largest privately held real-estate development and management organizations, and partner JMF Properties, a NJ development company specializing in transit-oriented projects, urban retail centers, and commercial office parks, announced a lease signing with Costco Wholesale, the anchor at Harbor Pointe Marketplace.The development partners broke ground recently on Costco Wholesale, which is scheduled to open in fall 2018 and will include a Costco gas station with 18 gas pumps.

Murphy has issued an executive order— his 25th — to create a task force to investigate employee misclassification. That’s when companies intentionally misrepresent workers, classifying them as independent contractors rather than fulltime employees, so the companies don’t have to pay social security and unemployment insurance, and the like. According to NJ Spotlight, the practice costs the state an estimated $9 million every year.Jersey City Bike Tour will roll June 3Registration is now open for the 9th annual Jersey City Ward Tour & Festival. “Bike around JC, then party with all the bikey people,” reads the press release.

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen of the Department of Homeland Security said conditions in Honduras had improved enough to remove the temporary protected status.State A.G. asks Weehawken to lift ban on out-of-town residents making right turnNJ Atty. General Gurbir Grewal’s office recently sent Weehawken a letter, asking the town to not enforce a turning ban against out-of-town motorists until the state Department of Transportation completes a review of the area.The ban had prohibited nonresidents from making a right turn onto Pleasant Avenue from Hackensack Plank Road, weekdays from 3-7 p.m. The town issued the ban because they say non-residents frequently use the turn as a shortcut to Route 495 and parts west. This, officials argued, caused traffic clogs and upset residents.The letter requested a sit-down with the town and the state Department of Transportation over the ban. Town officials met with the DOT and gave them a tour of the area, Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner said. The state agency is currently working on a plan to alleviate traffic at the intersection without needing the ban, Turner said.Until then, officers are holding traffic at the turn until the intersection is clear, instead of enforcing the ban. However, the mayor says that traffic has greatly improved since the restriction, as nonresidents are using other streets to get around. Officers have yet to issue a ticket.“I think they understand the problem,” Turner said of DOT efforts to fix it.last_img read more

Ocean City Teen Reels in Giant Fish, Breaks Record

(Courtesy Ron Gallagher) The Ocean City Marlin and Tuna Club held its annual “Labor Day Jamboree” fishing tournament over Labor Day weekend. Club member Eddie Kelly, 15, of Ocean City, broke a record, reeling in a huge fish – a 66-pound mahi-mahi.Eddie was part of the crew of the “Lisa Marie,” a 36-foot sport fishing boat based in Ocean City. “While trolling 85 miles off the coast in the Baltimore Canyon, Eddie hooked up to a mahi-mahi,” said Ron Gallagher, the club commodore. “After a 45-minute battle, the fish was brought into the boat.”Later, during the official weigh-in held at the Ocean City Yacht Club, the mahi-mahi tipped the scales at a whopping 66 pounds, three pounds over the record held since 2010. Eddie is a student at St. Augustine Prep High School. In the summer, he works at Finatics Tackle Shop on West Avenue in Ocean City.Eddie Kelly proudly displays his catch.

SUB hosts Dogs and Donuts

first_imgThe University’s Student Union Board (SUB) held its annual “Dogs and Donuts” event on North Quad yesterday. The event, which lasted from 12 p.m.-2 p.m., provided students with two of the things that college students love most: animals and free food.Wei Lin | The Observer According to Kaya Moore, SUB’s director of programming, the event has gone through changes this year.“SUB normally does ‘Puppies and Pumpkins,’ which is basically the same thing except that we have it in October instead of November,” Moore said. “But we realized that there were just too many Halloween events going on this year, and we wanted to do something different.”Wei Lin | The Observer Moore said SUB had already planned to move the event to sometime in November, but when they saw that National Doughnut Day was Nov. 5, they wanted to take advantage of the opportunity.“We were a little late,” she said. “But it worked out.”Heartland Small Animal Rescue Fundraising Chair Jan Caudell said volunteers from the organization were working alongside Notre Dame SUB members, holding and showing off the dogs as the students interacted with them.Wei Lin | The Observer “I believe that being around the animals generally improves the welfare of the students,” Caudell said.She said the shelter hoped to do more than just provide the students animals to interact with. According to volunteer Barbara Sullivan, the shelter also hoped to raise awareness and recruit other volunteers.“We wanted to show off the dogs but also attract some volunteers for foster homes or walking the dogs,” Sullivan said. “Most of our volunteers are much older, and they don’t like to walk in the winter because they’re afraid they’ll slip, which is why we definitely need younger volunteers to help out.”Sullivan and others handed out business cards and shared information about volunteering while the students and pups interacted. She said the event went better than she could have hoped.“We were only expecting about four dogs to come,” Sullivan said. “We were really worried, actually, that no dogs would be able to come. But there actually ended up being more than 10, which is pretty amazing.”With their booth constantly restocking doughnuts for the Notre Dame students, the SUB event was the perfect way to, as Moore put it, “keep the students invested and happy.”As Caudell said, the event was an easy sell to students.“Who doesn’t love dogs and doughnuts?” she said.Tags: dogs, doughnuts, SUBlast_img read more

Student creates ‘Humans of Standing Rock’ page

first_imgOver Thanksgiving break, a group of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s students went to the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota to join the “water protectors” — many of which are Native Americans who have been there since August — in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline being built near their land. On Nov. 29, senior Jenn Cha — one of the Notre Dame allies who went to the reservation, along with four native students — started a Facebook page, Humans of Standing Rock, to share the stories of the indigenous people she met who are leading the movement. Sunday, the Department of the Army announced that it would not allow the Dakota Access pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe, the area in question. Courtesy of Jenn Cha “Water protectors” gather at the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota.“It is a huge victory and it is a testament to the power of protest — this never would have happened without the protest — and especially those first four to five months before the media outburst, there was basically no media coverage,” Cha said. Cha said she is “cautiously optimistic.” Many of the leaders at Standing Rock have said they still have no plans to leave, despite being subjected to water cannons and non-lethal rubber rounds. Likewise, Cha is not leaving her photojournalism project. “I will continue with the page, because I still have a backlog,” she said. “I think it would be a mistake to say, ‘OK, we’ve proclaimed victory’ and move on to other things. I think we need to keep the momentum going.” Humans of Standing Rock, Cha said, is based off of Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York photojournalism project. “I was surprised that something like Humans of Standing Rock didn’t exist already, because this movement has been going on since August,” she said. “Everything that did come out [of the media] was … ‘clashes with police,’ even though they’re peaceful protesters — that kind of rhetoric. I didn’t see much content that was created with the intent of humanizing people who were there. These are the people, this is why they’re here, here are their stories.”While the content the page is from Cha’s time at the reservation over Thanksgiving, she said she was “very open” to making it a collaborative project. “I was there for three to four days, and I talked to a lot of people, took photographs, recorded them, and I just created a huge backlog of photographs and interviews,” she said. “Obviously, I was only there three days — I don’t presume to say ‘my story is the only story.’ “I’m not native myself; I didn’t go to the ceremony areas, I didn’t go anywhere I wasn’t invited. There are a lot of stories I can’t tell, and if there are other photojournalists out there, I’d like them to reach out to me.” Currently, the Humans of Standing Rock Facebook page has almost 500 likes. “The crux is probably Notre Dame students,” Cha said. “But only about 200 out of the 500 are Facebook friends with me, so I only know half of them and where they’re from or anything. Hopefully, it’s spreading.” In addition to humanizing the people at Standing Rock, Cha said she hopes the page helps people realize that Standing Rock’s fight against the pipeline is not just a temporary situation. “This is an indigenous-led movement, and it’s a prayer movement,” she said. “I think that sometimes gets undercut by other news. … People from other places, other indigenous tribes, they’ve sold their things and come to be in solidarity. “It’s not like they’re camping there. They’re living there — that’s people’s lives. One of the people I interviewed said, ‘It is a movement in some ways, it’s a protest in some ways, but it’s our whole lives — if this pipeline went through, where would we go?’”Tags: Dakota Access Pipeline, dapl, Sioux Tribe, standing rocklast_img read more

Peru Will Have a Strictly Female Peace-Keeping Unit

first_imgBy Dialogo February 22, 2011 The Peruvian Armed Forces Joint Command will have its first female contingent ready to participate in any peace-keeping mission in the world starting in the first half of 2011, the head of the Peru Company, Lt. Col. Dante Gallegos Rengifo, announced, highlighting the facts that this first group of twenty-three female officers comes from the Air Force and has received special training to work in war zones and areas struck by natural disasters. As he explained, the United Nations (UN) is expected to request the participation of the female contingent, whose work will be oriented more toward observation and social assistance than toward strictly military tasks. For example, he mentioned that the contingent will work in the areas of border monitoring, monitoring drug trafficking and child trafficking, smuggling, or direct monitoring of the civilian population. “In the second half of the year, we’ll have other female contingents that are being trained by the Army and Navy,” the officer in charge of the unit announced. He added that the deployment period of each contingent is six months, according to Peru’s agreement with the United Nations and in conformity with its institutional norms. Indeed, the Peru Company that he headed in Haiti spent half a year on the Caribbean island, with its members distributed in three bases along the border with the Dominican Republic. “We also had responsibilities in a camp for displaced persons, people who lost their homes in the January 2010 earthquake, with six thousand residents,” he specified. Gallegos Rengifo acknowledged, nonetheless, that the most difficult period was the one that coincided with November’s presidential election. “The stability in the country is not good; hence, the participation of the United Nations contingent, including the contingent from the Peru Company, has been very important, because it has guaranteed the smooth unfolding of the electoral process,” he noted.last_img read more

Five Mile Point Speedway kicks off 70th year without fans

first_img“We’re just happy to be here and see people and be able to do this,” said owner Andrew Harpell. Owner Andrew Harpell said the decision to keep fans away was a tough, but one that needed to happen. Harpell told 12 News the speedway is included in Phase 4 of the New York Forward Plan. He hopes to see fans back in the stands in the next two weeks. This time around, things were a little different at the speedway, as no fans were allowed to attend due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Strictly from a revenue standpoint it hurts,” Harpell said. “It’s an expensive hobby for these race teams, and we wanted them to use their equipment that they spent all winter long putting together.” Scott Landers has been racing since 1989 and said he has never raced without fans in the stands. “This is something new for everybody here tonight,” said Landers.center_img Josh has been racing for the last two years and on opening night is following in his dad’s footsteps.
