Congratulations to our very own Brenda Ehlert and Dr. Anthony Zeimet for publishing an article in The American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC).

Thank you for sharing your expertise and knowledge with the wider world!


Link to Article via Clinical Key.

Am J Infect Control. 2019 May 4. pii: S0196-6553(19)30230-5. doi: 10.1016/j.ajic.2019.04.002. [Epub ahead of print]

Merging health care systems: An example of utilizing quality principles in infection prevention standardization.

Abstract

When Ascension Wisconsin was formed, it merged 4 long-established health systems: Ministry Health Care, Affinity Health System, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, and Columbia St Mary's. One of the challenges encountered during the first year was redundancy in many policies and processes. Setting a structure, establishing goals, and evaluating progress led to success for Ascension Wisconsin's Infection Prevention Council.

Formation; Merge; Policy; Standard; Team

Ascension Wisconsin EHRs:
I updated the NRC Plus Links on the Nursing Point-of-Care LibGuide, which means they should also be working through the various EHRs around the state now, too.

TOXNET Website to Retire Dec 16, 2019: Most Content Will Remain Available

National Library of Medicine Technical BulletinNational Library of Medicine Technical Bulletin

TOXNET Website to be Retired, Most Content Will Remain Available. 

NLM Tech Bull. 2019 Sep-Oct;(430):e3.

On December 16, 2019, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) TOXNET (TOXicology Data NETwork) website will be retired. Most content will remain available through other NLM databases as well as from external websites.

TOXNET has served as an integrated system of toxicology and environmental health information. The most frequently used databases are being incorporated into three NLM core resources: PubChem, an open chemistry database; PubMed, a resource for biomedical literature; and Bookshelf, a free online resource to access books and documents in life science and healthcare.

Several resources in TOXNET came from other organizations, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and will continue to be available from those sources. Some databases will be retired.

The TOXNET transition page provides a list of its databases and how to access their content. Please check that page and the NLM Technical Bulletin for updates.

If you have questions, please contact NLM Customer Support at https://support.nlm.nih.gov/.
