Title : Hand Hygiene Knowledge, Attitude and Barriers among Jordanian Nurses
by Zainab Al Ghafari, Mohannad Eid AbuRuz,
Abstract : Hand hygiene is the most effective recommended practice to prevent hospital-associated infections. Although, hand hygiene compliance rate is still low. The general purpose of this study was to describe Jordanian nurses' knowledge, attitudes, and barriers toward hand hygiene. A non-experimental descriptive cross-sectional design was used for this study. Validated self-reported questionnaires were used among 207 nurses (106 male and 101females) from four major hospitals in Jordan. Nurses have a moderate level of knowledge (13.83±2.64) and moderate positive attitudes (32.74±4.54). Furthermore, nurses who were working in private hospitals had higher levels of knowledge than nurses who work in teaching hospitals who had higher levels of knowledge than nurses working in governmental hospitals. Nurses who were working in private hospitals had higher levels of attitude than nurses working in teaching and governmental hospitals. Surgical nurses had higher levels of an attitude than ICU nurses and higher levels than medical nurses. On the other hand, ER nurses had shown the lowest attitude. In addition, the result showed that the most important barriers toward hand hygiene were: 1) insufficient time, 2) skin irritation, 3) wearing gloves, 4) lack of knowledge, and 5) ignorance of guidelines. In conclusion, there is a need for continuous education about hand hygiene in order to improve hand hygiene knowledge and to enhance the change in attitude. This study revealed that some of the major barriers were workload, skin irritation and wearing gloves. Management should reduce workload and provide appropriate hand hygiene products.

Title : Posteromedial approach in management of posteromedial tibial plateau fracture
by Ahmed M. A. A. Ibrahim, Atef M. Morsy, Emad G. Elbana, Ayman A. Abdelsamad,
Abstract : The posteromedial fragment in bicondylar tibial plateau fractures. it's often significant displacement, seems to be under-recognized or recognized and undertreated. The posteromedial approach provides access to the posteromedial and posterior aspects of the proximal tibia, Tibial plateau fractures with a posteromedial fragment (Schz IV, V, and VI) can be effectively managed by the posteromedial approach. Between May 2017 and February 2019, 40 patients with a mean age of 41 years (Range from 21-64 years) with tibial plateau fractures. Patients were diagnosed clinically, checked with standard X-rays; CT was done for all cases. Patients were treated by ORIF through a posteromedial approach with or without additional screws or plate, a screw from a lateral side. Radiological evaluation and functional assessment were done according to the Rasmussen Knee score. Patients were followed-up for an average of 12 months. Union was achieved in all patients with the total Functional Rasmussen Knee score at last follow-up was (Excellent 77.5. %, good 22.5%). The Total Anatomical Rasmussen Knee score at last follow-up was (Excellent 55%, Good 37.5%, Fair 7.5%). Mean Functional Rasmussen Knee score of patients had (Schatzker IV fractures) was Excellent 100%, however, it was Excellent 66.6%, Good 33,3% in those had (Schatzker V fractures) and was Excellent 33,3%, good 66.6 in those had (Schatzker VI fractures). Surgical treatment of tibial plateau fractures through a posteromedial approach that was evaluated in our study can lead to a good functional and anatomical outcome and considered an effective safe approach.

Title : Assessment of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome in Female Saudi Population Using Ultrasonography
by Sawsan Ahmed wadallah Osman, Sabah Elshafea Mohammed Elshafea,
Abstract : The Purpose is to conduct to review characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome using ultrasonography in Saudi female population through which incidence of infertility caused by PCOS has been increased. Across sectional clinical study was conducted at two Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during period from January-December 2018. One hundred seventy-six women were examined for PCOS, using GE Healthcare Ultrasonography. The main symptoms, pelvic pain, acne and hirsutism. For primary infertility the higher number of patients who had pelvic pain, 18 and 8 patients respectively. For secondary infertility the higher frequency of pelvic pain then patients with no sign 21 and 18 patients respectively. The ultrasound approach was Transvaginal and Transabdominal. And the number of follicles, using TA approach no follicle in 61 patients, < 10 follicles in 38 patients and >10 follicles in 29 patients. Using TV approach, no follicle in18 patients, <10 follicles in 20 patients and > 10 follicles in 10 patients. A high prevalence of PCOS was found among women of the sample population in the present study that may require urgent health education interventions in order to prevent the associated consequences.
