Navy disqualifies 151 sexual assault personnel
The Atlanta Journal-Consitution
The U.S. Navy disqualified 151 sailors for "lacking proper training" following a review of sexual assault personnel, the same kind of review that resulted in the Army disqualifying hundreds and discharging dozens of soldiers. Navy spokesman Lt. Cdr. Chris Servello told USA Today the Navy expanded it's initial review — prompted by orders from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel — from 10,000 sex assault coordinators, instructors and recruiters to 20,000.
Schools revise sexual assault policies
Thomas is one of 31 current and former Berkeley students who say their sexual assault investigations were mishandled and filed federal complaints against the school, which has since changed its policies in compliance with the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.
Hagel to meet with brass on sex assault review
Leaders from each of the armed services will brief Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on the criteria they have used to screen out problem troops from serving as sexual assault counselors, recruiters and instructors, according to a Defense Department official.
The Army disqualified 588 soldiers after its review, while the Marine Corps found that all its Marines had passed muster.
The calculus of nursing education and patient outcomes
By Keith Carlson
With the publication of a new study in The Lancet, it appears that the call for more baccalaureate-prepared nurses just became louder, and the results of said study appear to carry a great deal of weight in both the academic and clinical worlds. Using discharge data from more than 400,000 hospitalized European patients, this well-received study demonstrates that increasing a hospital nurse's workload by only one patient leads to a 7 percent increase in the chances that a patient will die within 30 days of admission.
