NURSING CARE: Nurse with heart condition dies at hospital
- by admin
Nursing care is the lifeblood of many families.
And if you have an emergency, you need a caring nurse.
A new study has found that women are more likely to be the ones to seek nursing care for a chronic health condition like heart disease or high blood pressure than men.
The findings are from the Nurses Health Study, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health and was conducted by the University of Pittsburgh’s College of Nursing and Health Professions.
The Nurses Healthcare Study, an ongoing study of nursing home care, was based on data collected from more than 10,000 residents of nursing homes nationwide.
This year, more than 2,000 people completed a questionnaire about their health and lifestyle, as well as their mental health, and their nursing status.
The survey included questions about nursing and home care.
It’s important to note that while the study did not focus on nursing care, the survey was designed to find out if there were differences in the health of women and men, which can lead to differences in how care is delivered.
The study looked at how women who were in nursing homes at the end of 2012 were doing at their homes.
Of those, 614 had a serious condition, including a heart condition, a chronic illness or a chronic condition that caused a disability.
Of the 614 women, 39 percent were female and 39 percent of the men were male.
The remaining 2 percent were not sure.
The overall proportion of women who had a severe condition was 6.7 percent, compared to 4.7 for men.
Of those who were still in nursing home after their stay, only 5 percent had a heart attack.
In comparison, 4.5 percent of men who were discharged from nursing homes in 2012 had a stroke.
And 3.5 million women were still hospitalized in 2012.
In terms of mental health issues, women were more likely than men to be hospitalized for depression, anxiety and substance abuse disorders, and had more serious issues than men in mental health.
Overall, only 2.6 percent of women were in a nursing home at the time of the survey.
The study found that nursing home residents had a higher risk of mental illness and a lower likelihood of mental disability than people in other communities.
For example, women in nursing centers had a greater risk of depression than men, and were more at risk of substance abuse.
In terms of nursing care in general, women are overrepresented in nursing facilities, the study found.
The proportion of nursing facilities in the U.S. that were women-only increased from 7.3 percent in 1992 to 11.1 percent in 2013.
Of course, there are some differences between nursing homes and hospitals, and nursing facilities may be different from other communities, but the fact that women and minorities are underrepresented and that women make up more of the population should be cause for concern.
The report also found that the prevalence of nursing issues in nursing was higher for white women than for black or Hispanic women, which makes sense, as these groups are more frequently targeted for health care problems.
And while black women and Hispanic women have the highest rates of mental illnesses, they are still underrepresented compared to men.
This means that it is more difficult for black and Hispanic nursing home women to get the care they need, the researchers wrote.
In a recent CNN piece on the findings, the author of the study, Dr. Jessica G. Lefkowitz, pointed out that the study does not tell the full story about the health care system.
“It’s not just that women of color are under represented, it’s also that women who are under-represented are disproportionately vulnerable to nursing issues, especially in nursing.”
She added that the Nursers Health Study did not look at women who work in other areas of care, and women who worked in nursing did not have more problems with mental health and substance use issues.
So the data can’t tell us about the overall health of nursing workers, she said.
The findings come on the heels of President Donald Trump’s recent decision to remove protections for female workers in the workplace.
According to the New York Times, Trump signed an executive order Friday that will end the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Act, which prohibits employers from retaliating against workers for reporting discrimination, sexual harassment or retaliation.
