Long-Awaited Kidney Transplant Canceled Over Hospital Strike

An innovative experiment now aims to use that hour or more window of time to boost lung transplants by allowing donations from people who suddenly collapse and die at home instead of in a hospital. There arent enough lungs. Were burying them, said Dr. Thomas Egan of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, who is leading the project. It turns out your lungs dont die when you do. This is a new frontier for transplants. Today, registered organ donors dont get to fulfill that last wish if they die outside of a hospital. The U.S. doesnt have a system to recover their organs quickly enough. It can be an added shock to grieving families, and a waste of potentially good organs that might ease transplant shortages.

Each faculty member held a master's degree. Matty Hersee School of Nursing continually provided an educationally sound program for the preparation of registered nurses to function in acute, intermediate and long-term care facilities. From 1959 to February 1986, the school had 475 graduates, with 454 of those passing the state board licensure examination for registered nurses a 95.6 percent passing rate. In May 1986, 32 students graduated from the nursing school. In 1984, the Matty Hersee School of Nursing received notification from the state of Mississippi that the school would be placed in a two-year phase-out. The school closed its doors on June 30, 1986. MCC acquired the Matty Hersee property, which consists of the hospital building and an adjacent 120-bed dormitory on five acres of land, from the state in 2006 for $1.6 million.

MCC plan demolition of Matty Hersee Hospital

Theres got to be a way to get around this. For the latest organ transplant news, visit our topic page. The University of California San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest said it had to cancel the transplant because of an impending union strike. The one-day strike is the result of a disagreement over reckless and unsafe staffing, according to a statement the health care workers unionAFSCME gave to ABC affiliate KGTV in San Diego. Rivera, a father of three who has spent the past year on dialysis, said its difficult for him to find a match because his blood type is O-negative. His sister is the only match in his family, but she already donated a kidney to him 12 years ago. (Most people need more than one kidney transplant over their lifetimes.) Once that kidney failed, he needed to look beyond his family for a match. After launching a Facebook campaign to find one, Rivera found a donor who lived in Tennessee. Because the donor lived out of state, his insurance wouldnt cover her travel and lodging expenses during the surgery. So Rivera used gofundme.com and raised $5,000 in two days. The hospital initially told Rivera it couldnt schedule another surgery until 2014, but he learned today that the hospital rescheduled the surgery for the day after the strike, on Nov. 21.

3-day-old girl dies in typhoon-wrecked hospital

13, five days after Typhoon Haiyan annihilated a vast swath of the Philippines, killing thousands. The storm's aftermath is still claiming victims, and Althea was among the latest. She was born at the government-run Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center, suffering from a condition called newborn asphyxia, a failure to start regular breathing within a minute of birth. The consequences are possible brain damage or death if not corrected quickly. According to the World Health Organization, newborn asphyxia is one of the leading causes of newborn deaths in developing countries, accounting for about 20 percent of the infant mortality rate. In the United States, it is the 10th leading cause of infant mortality. Althea could have been saved had the hospital's ventilators had been working. But power lines were down in the entire region. There was no electricity and none of the equipment in the hospital flooded and wrecked worked. Not the ventilators, not the incubators, not the suction pumps to feed her oxygen.
