Diego Costa is called to meet Liverpool

first_imgThe striker played his last ten minutes on November 10 in a match against Espanyol. A cervical disc herniation made him go through the operating room and since then he has been convalescent with the aim of being able to help the team in this knockout round of the Champions League against Liverpool. The team missed him, so much that the club tried to sign a substitute in the January market. Cavani was the goal, but the ten million offer made by the rojiblancos could not move the Uruguayan from there. Now the Champions returns and Costa returns to the call. History repeats itself. Last season the striker was also intervened, this time on a toe, and arrived in February. The difference is that this time he could play half an hour in the League match against Lightning, before being in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Juventus.Simeone then played the mistake and included the starting battering team against the Turinese, although he acknowledged that he was not ready to play the 90 minutes. Costa played one of his best games in Atlético and was substituted, but saw a yellow that prevented him from playing the lap. The list of summoned to be measured with Liverpool tomorrow is formed by: Oblak, Adam, Arias, Lodi, Giménez, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Thomas, Koke, Saúl, Lemar, Vitolo, Llorente, Carrasco, Morata, Correa and Costa. João Félix, Herrera and Trippier are left out. Diego Costa returns to Atlético’s call, just when he is most needed. The presence of the forward has been confirmed by Simeone at a press conference. “It has been improving. It is growing, training enthusiastically, it is among the 19 concentrated players and has the opportunity tomorrow to play the game,” explained the Argentine coach.last_img read more

Having Dedicated Hospital Space For Caregivers Actually Makes Economic Sense And Facilities

first_imgHaving Dedicated Hospital Space For Caregivers Actually Makes Economic Sense, And Facilities Are Starting To Listen Under the health law, there are penalties on hospitals for avoidable readmissions. Providing support for family caregivers could help keep patients from having to come back to the facility. Meanwhile, some hospitals are revamping to become more energy efficient, and they’re saving millions. Modern Healthcare: Few Hospitals Dedicate Space For Family Caregivers, But That Could Change  Kaiser Health News: Energy-Hog Hospitals: When They Start Thinking Green, They See Green Hospitals are energy hogs. With their 24/7 lighting, heating and water needs, they use up to five times more energy than a fancy hotel. Executives at some systems view their facilities like hotel managers, adding amenities, upscale new lobbies and larger parking garages in an effort to attract patients and increase revenue. But some hospitals are revamping with a different goal in mind: becoming more energy-efficient, which can also boost the bottom line.

Sign up for an email subscription. More young nurses are opting to obtain advanced degrees, which could help fill gaps in primary care. But it could also take them away from the patient’s bedside. Nearly half of millennial nurses (ages 19-36), 35% of those in Generation X (ages 37-53), and 12% of baby boomers (ages 54-71) plan to become advanced-practice nurses, according to AMN Healthcare, a healthcare staffing agency that polled nearly 3,400 nurses in April 2017. (Kacik, 8/15) Dedicated spaces for family caregivers are rare. Fewer than 20 acute-care hospitals have them, according to experts in the field, and Burke says theirs, which opened in June, is the first such caregiver center inside a rehab hospital. Even so, caregiver advocates believe several factors are coming together to convince hospitals such investments make economic sense even as margins are increasingly crunched. The Affordable Care Act put in place penalties for avoidable readmissions, which caregivers can help prevent, and some encouraging programs are cropping up to pay caregivers for their work.
