Foster plays down injury fears

first_img Press Association West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has played down surgery fears after suffering a fractured thumb. Foster was forced to return from England duty during the recent international break due to the injury but believes he can cope with the problem with the aid of pain-killing jabs. The 31-year-old intends to play at Tottenham on Sunday as 19th placed West Brom seek their first win of the Barclays Premier League campaign. center_img “There was a little bit of bone that I chipped off it in training, which is a little bit unfortunate,” Foster told the Birmingham Mail. “Hopefully I won’t need surgery. I am managing it pretty well and getting some injections in it to kill the pain, so it’s fine. “It is the way it is and I just have to hope it heals itself. “I’m hopeful it will and the doctors are as well, so that’s that.” last_img read more

Arenal Report

first_imgNo related posts. Based on the overall movement of the house and the degree of swing to the hanging lamps, the second earthquake of June 2013 felt in the Arenal Area exceeded 4.0 on the Richter Scale. It was biphasic, but short, lasting only 16 seconds. As yet, no word of increased activity in Volcan Arenal. Some new steam vents have opened this year, but none of the spectacular nighttime lava flows so beloved by the Tourism Ministry and local businesses. With the increase in seismic activity, we may again view one of  Nature’s most awesome displays of power.The June meeting of Ladies of the Lake, hosted by Ruth Fountaine, focused on the initial planning for this year’s Christmas Bazaar. It will be held at the Feria location at Five Corners on December 8 instead of the Plaza del Café as in years past. Kudos to the Imperial Brewing Company of Costa Rica for donating 25 tents to the event.One of the more important phrases in Spanish that visitors should learn here is, “ Dos Imperiales, por favor.”It’s never too early to offer prayers for good weather. Last year the weather was perfect and attendance was great. Proceeds from the Bazaar provide much of the funding for the community projects supported by Ladies of the Lake. The next meeting of LOL will be Thursday, July 18 at 11:30 a.m. Call Rene Aoki for location of the meeting: 8388-3891.Hopes for an asphalt surface to the road from Nuevo Arenal to Guatuso have succumbed to budgetary restrictions. However, the improvements as completed have cut the travel time over the 25 kilometers in half. Thanks to Conavi, Mopt and the Transportation Ministry for a job well done.-William & Jean [email protected] Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Houses 994B HHS Appropriations Bill Includes Amendment Reversing Ban On Developing Unique

first_img The Defense and Veterans Affairs Departments plan to create a joint office that will have decision-making authority for their co-developed health record system, leaders told lawmakers on Wednesday. After months of congressional criticsm and requests for a proposed joint governance structure for the massive project, the agencies said they are creating Federal EHR Modernization Program Management Office as a “single point of authority” for EHR projects. (Cohen, 6/12) Modern Healthcare: As The Care Continuum Expands, Patient-Matching Remains A Problem Without A Single Solution In other news about electronic health records — Matching patients with their medical information sounds like a simple concept, but it’s not. The practice is plagued by such issues as typos, missing data, similar names and new addresses—resulting in match rates as low as 80% within the same facility, according to the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives. That means 1 in every 5 patients may not be linked with the correct record. It also leads to higher costs. Patient-matching remains a multi-
billion-dollar problem in the U.S., with inaccurate patient identification accounting for $1,950 in duplicative medical care costs per inpatient and $1.5 million in denied claims per hospital each year, according to a survey by Black Book. (Cohen, 6/13) House’s $99.4B HHS Appropriations Bill Includes Amendment Reversing Ban On Developing Unique Patient PINs Lawmakers previously argued a program to develop a national patient identifier could violate privacy issues or raise security concerns, while the medical community and insurers claimed the ban kept them from properly matching patients with the correct medical information–a major issue that health systems are struggling with. The U.S. House of Representatives passed a $99.4 billion HHS appropriation bill with several amendments including reversing a longtime ban on developing a national patient identifier, money for hospital emergency departments dealing with opioid overdoses, and a nod to the anti-vaccination controversy. For decades, Congress has prohibited HHS from funding the development or promotion of any national program where patients would receive permanent, unique identification numbers.
