This study will create a program to educate and assist elderly in-
patients who are at low to medium risk of falling. The study will
evaluate the program by randomly assigning patients who have
an acute medical condition to either the continuing mobilization
program or usual care.

117) Does a Specialized Inpatient Unit Improve Care? An
Evaluation of Eastern Maine Medical Center's West-Side
Court (09-2-M-154)
This project will evaluate the effectiveness of a new unit in
EMMC that will be devoted to patients presenting with behavioral
or psychiatric issues. The unit will be located on Grant 5 and open in January. The project will retrospectively review all patients referred to the unit, assess the profile of these patients, and compile a control group (one year before opening of West-Side Court) matched on age, gender, and admitting dx.

123) Attitudes of Critical Care Physicians Towards
Documenting Absence of Drug Intoxication When
Performing Brain Death Examinations.
objective: To assess physician documentation regarding the
absence of intoxication in patients prior to brain death (BD)
examinations. Method: A survey will be sent to the Society of
Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and a request will be made that it be sent to their membership via email for completion. No patients will be involved or invited. Only medical personnel will be invited to complete the survey. The SCCM has a very large international membership. If even 1-2% respond, there will be several hundred responses. This will be enough to answer our questions.
124) Evaluating the Use of Image-Guided Navigation for
Femoral Fracture Reduction and Fixation: A Clinical Pilot
Study (06-2-M-089)
This is a prospective, randomized pilot study evaluating the use
of VectorVision Trauma technology (computer assisted
fluoroscopic navigation) versus standard methods (C-arm
fluoroscopy) for the reduction and fixation of femoral fractures.
Study will target 40 patients over one and one half years and will
randomly assign one half to the control group (standard
procedures) and one half to computer assisted flouroscopic

Spine Fractures in Blunt Trauma Patients with Cervical
Spine Fractures
This study primarily estimates the incidence of second
noncontiguous spine fractures in patients presented with a
cervical spine fracture, and asks whether the rate of detecting
these injuries was different prior to utilizing CT scan to examine the whole spine. It also examines mechanisms of injury, patient demographics, and injury characteristics as associates of noncontiguous spine fractures in patients with a cervical spine fracture.

103) Diabetes Homecare (07-1-M-099))
This project is composed of 3 programs: 1. Trauma emergency,
2. PICU, and 3. Telehomehealthcare. Each program looks at the impact of using televideo technology to improve patient service and outcomes. Trauma and PICU are evaluation programs examining the use of televideo technology for physician consultations between EMMC and 8 critical access hospitals. The trauma outpatient program is evaluating the use of televideo technology for follow-up consultations with patients recovering from recent emergency trauma. The telehomehealthcare program is a prospective study investigating the impact of diabetic patients having a telemedicine monitoring device in their home.
