Abstract : Mothers of neonates who require special care begin their experience of motherhood in the unfamiliar environment of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) which may result in delayed maternal attachment. This study examined the emotional experience of mothers of newborn babies admitted in Newborn Special Care Unit (NBSCU) in University of Nigeria, Teaching Hospital, Enugu-Nigeria. The specific objectives of the study were to identify the causes/sources of stress, assess the emotional responses of the mothers of neonates, determine the perceived problems caused by neonate-mother separation and identify the coping strategies adopted by mothers of neonates. Descriptive research design was adopted in the study among 62 mothers of neonates. Structured questionnaire was used to obtain data. The result of the study shows that the prominent cause of stress among the mothers was fear of the child dying with mean score of 3.70 + 0.46, the identified emotional reactions were the feeling of depression/sadness 62(100%); powerlessness and trembling lips/separation led to inability to work and engage in hobbies with mean score of 3.93 + .25, increase emotional disability with mean score of 3.66 + .63, lack of child breast feeding mean score of 3.87 + .34 while, praying for the child quick recovery with mean score of 4.0 + 00 was the coping strategies adopted.

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.

Abstract : Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) remains pandemic diseases carrying over socio-economic and health impacts. The growth of the epidemic of HIV/AIDS in Indonesia is the fastest in Southeast Asia. Supported by the Ministry of Home Affair’s Regulation No. 20/2007 on empowering People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and community base empowerment theory, the research objective was to design a model for empowering PLWHA in Surakarta. Started from August to September 2019, the researcher team has done participatory action research with purposively selected key informants to collect data using document review, in-dept interview, and focus group discussion. The findings proposed empowerment model for PLWHA as follows: 1) AIDS Volunteer Community provides individual coaching for the key population for change; 2) AIDs Control Commission and Local offices offer participatory action training, and 3) Peer Supporting Group do nursing and caring for PLWHA groups. More activities are also provided to guide the empowerment model.

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.

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.
