    In this week’s iNurse Episode we are discussing: Quality of care guidelines, featuring Nurse Reezena Malaska. You may remember Reezena as one of our guest speakers from our iNurse episode:Reducing Nurse Fatigue. If you haven’t had the chance to tune in, you can find it on our website at: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/inurseradio


    Nurse Reezena’s passion and enthusiasm for the field of healthcare has led her to become a Registered Nurse, achieve a Master’s of Science in Nursing, and became certified as a Critical Care Registered Nurse. In addition to practicing nursing, she also dedicates her time to teach and inspire Nurse Students as an adjunct professor at Notre Dame College and Cuyahoga Community College.

    3 Simple Health Strategies For Seniors
    How to make lifestyle choices that lead to health and wellness.


    Families with aging loved ones can help guide decision making for happier, healthier family members. Here are three simple health strategies for seniors that will help to make a positive, long lasting difference.


    Get to the Root of Restless Sleep
    Sleep declines with age naturally, and by age 70, a typical night of rest is just over 6 hours. A trip to the doctor can often uncover the root of sleep issues, whether it’s chronic pain, improper medications or something more serious.


    Boost Immunity With Smart Diet Choices
    A robust immune system is vital for reducing the risk of getting sick and staying healthy year round. Great foods for supporting immunity are vegetables, fruits and whole grains.


    Skilled In Home Nursing For Safety, Guidance and Care
    Professional in home care offers a loved one the assistance they need to age at home independently. Help administering medicine, light housekeeping, even running errands helps seniors stay confident and independent.

    Gerald's Story: Nursing home and drug abuse of an elderly man

    in Family

    Patrice Gilgan joins us this evening to expose the abuse and drugging of her father at the hands of doctors and nursing home workers in two different facilities in Orange County, California.  The first instance of abuse both physical and with drugs occured at Irvine Cottage Board and Care where Gerald had been sent to recover from brain surgery.  Gerald was drugged within 24 hours of admittance to the home with massive doses of Haldol, Seroqel and overdosed on morphine.  There was no prescription for the morphine.  Cottage Board and Care is operated by St Joseph Hospice, a Catholic enterprise.


    At a second facility, Villa Valencia Skilled Nursing, (a St Michael Hospice and another Catholic owned  enterprise), Gerald was given 7 different drugs.  None of these drugs were to be used on brain injured or individuals suffering from dementia.  When Gerald was finally freed from this facility and hospitalized again, it took more than two weeks for him to respond due to the massive drug overload in his system.


    Videos of Gerald, and of some of the abuse he endured are available on the you tube channel;  Ireland Dallas


    Gerald Gilgan was a retired New York City Fire Fighter.  This man did not deserve this callous treatment.  No one does.  Yet it happens to the elderly every day here in the US.

    Big Data & Big Pharma: How Analytics Might Save Your Life

    in Technology

    Long before the tech sector christened almost every type of analytics as big data, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries were heavily reliant on analytics to develop new, safer drugs, and to produce those drugs more efficiently. Big data plays a key role in building upon what we have learned about the human genome, in managing effective clinical trials, in long-term monitoring of drug applicability in real-world healthcare, and in managing the manufacturing process.


    Consider what the use of big data in pharma and biotech companies means to you as a consumer. It means getting the right drug to the right patient at the right time for the right condition. Now, consider what you can learn as a business person -- no matter what industry you are in -- from the analytics techniques, and the data management and data mining concepts pioneered by big pharma.


    Jim Baxter, head of the life sciences practice at Collaborative Consulting, joins All Analytics Radio on Tuesday, May 19, at 2 pm EDT, for a discussion of how pharma and biotech companies finding benefits in big data analytics.


    In this show you will learn:



    How use of big data analytics have evolved in the drug and medical device industries
    What types of benefits life sciences companies are finding through use of analytics
    What big data in pharma means to you as a possible patient
    What the future holds for use of analytics in life sciences
    What lessons big pharma can teach analytics professionals and decision makers about use of big data in their own business environments
