can be accomplished with 18 beds resulting in similar average performance as the current system. Ahmed Abdulelah Salim  studied two and three dimensional analysis for thermal comfort in a hospital operating room. Model of room consist of a patient lying on an operating room table, four surgical staff members standing around, and surgical lights above the patient. Cold clean air was supplied to the room through high sidewall grilles and from ceiling diffuser and exhausted through low sidewall grilles on the opposite and same wall. Steady state heat and mass transfer in the operating room was replicated by engaging computational fluid dynamics (FLUENT V.6.3) modeling approach.
In the examples of catheterization witnessed in the hospital, those three patients were placed at risk for the development of infection. The nursing intervention of catheterization if done improperly can impair the patient. Jan Powers states urinary tract infections account for 30% of hospital infections, and of the 30%, 70-80% are related to urinary catheters (Impact of an aseptic procedure). The four nursing literature pieces used consult three main factors in preventing complications related to urinary catheterization. The first factor is the duration of how long the catheter will remain in the patient.

Participants also reported that key reasons given by participants for their psychiatric hospitalization were congruent with self-transcendence issues significant in later adulthood (e.g. physical health concerns, relationships with adult children, questions about life and death) (Reed, 1989). In the third study, Reed explored patterns of self-transcendence and mental health in 55 older adults (Reed, 1991). In this study, self-transcendence was measured through the newly developed Self-Transcendence Scale (STS). The score was correlated inversely with Langner Scale of Mental Health Symptomatology scores (Reed, 1991).
Sample: 191 outpatients with cancer receiving active treatment. Methods: Patients completed a demographic questionnaire, Karnofsky Performance Status scale, Lee Fatigue Scale, General Sleep Disturbance Scale, Center for Epidemiological Studies--Depression Scale, Multidimensional Quality-of-Life Scale--Cancer, and a numeric rating scale of worst pain intensity. Medical records were reviewed for disease and treatment information. Cluster analysis was used to identify patient subgroups based on patients ' symptom experiences. Differences in demographic, disease, and treatment characteristics as well as in outcomes were evaluated using analysis of variance and chi square analysis.
