Jaquis, chief of emergency medicine at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. LifeBridge Health, Sinai's parent company has recently partnered with ExpressCare urgent care centers.

Talk about a birthday party. The ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore fairly shimmered -- little lights twinkled on the bandstand's purple back cloth, while centerpieces of Calla lilies, white roses and Queen Anne's lace glowed on dinner tables draped in pewter cloths. Then there were the 385 guests, almost all of whom had personal reasons to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Department of Emergency Medicine of Johns Hopkins University. They were department graduates, now practicing their specialty of emergency medicine across the country.

"This is what we've trained for," he thought.

A person is more likely to get struck by lightening than shot while at a hospital, according to new research by Johns Hopkins. Investigators at Hopkins reviewed 11 years of data and found that 30 percent of hospital shootings occurred in emergency rooms. Nearly 50 percent of those shootings involved a security officer's gun - either stolen or used by a security. The study looked at 154 shootings at hospitals, resulting in 253 deaths or injuries. The shootings were difficult to prevent because they involved a "determined shooter," said Dr. Gabe Kelen, M.D., the lead author of the report, and the director of the Johns Hopkins Department of Emergency Medicine.

The federal health care reform law establishes a new body, called the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), responsible for enforcing the annual spending cap in Medicare. The IPAB will consist of 15 presidential appointees and will start making changes to Medicare in 2015. The fundamental problem with this system is there is little recourse in the event IPAB makes a bad decision. The panel's recommendations automatically become law unless Congress overrides them through a three-fifths vote or passes an alternative set of cuts that hit the same spending targets.

In a broad effort to speed treatment of heart attack victims in Baltimore, five area hospitals are distributing hand-held devices to every paramedic unit in the city that can transmit patients' heart rhythms, or EKGs, to the hospital before they arrive. Doctors have 90 minutes to open an artery after someone shows symptoms of a serious heart attack before survival becomes far less assured. The hand-held units, which can send information straight to a cardiologist's smart phone, could speed up that treatment by as much as 15 minutes, research shows.
