A review of studies on the relationship between alcohol and work injuries revealed that the evidence is contradictory and that many of the studies contain methodological flaws. The present study aimed to determine whether there are relationships between problem drinking and high alcohol consumption and outcomes such as work injuries and related absences. The sample consisted of 833 employees at an industrial worksite. Problem drinking was measured by the Mortimer-Filkins test, while alcohol consumption was measured by a 7-day retrospective diary. Work injury data were obtained from medical reports completed at the worksite medical center, while absences data were obtained from company records. Chi-square analyses revealed significant relationships between problem drinking and work injuries and injury-related absences, but not between high alcohol consumption and work injuries and related absences. Logistic regression analysis revealed that no variables were significant predictors of work injuries. However, when uninjured subjects were excluded, a second analysis revealed that Mortimer-Filkins test scores, recent stressful life events, age and job satisfaction were significant predictors of two or more injuries. Injured subjects were almost twice as likely to have two or more injuries if they had high numbers of recent stressful life events and low levels of job satisfaction. Logistic regression analysis revealed that age, Mortimer-Filkins test categories and job satisfaction significantly predicted injury-related absences. Problem drinkers were 2.7 times more likely to have injury-related absences than non-problem drinkers, and subjects with low levels of job satisfaction were 2.2 times more likely than others to have injury-related absences. The implications of the results for workplace alcohol policies and programs are discussed.

Analyses of acute hospital services in Australia reveal geographic differences in the rates of utilization. In order to meet the important challenge of improving the quality of services it is necessary to understand the nature and causes of the variation in these utilization measures. This paper provides examples of the variation in admission rates and lengths of stay for selected procedures in Australian States and shows that the length of stay is related to the variation in admission rates. It concludes that a greater understanding of both the admission and discharge processes is necessary to improve quality and produce cost savings.

OBJECTIVE: To assess patient satisfaction with day surgery facilities in New South Wales public hospitals. METHOD: One hundred and fifty patients from each of 8 day surgery units were asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire to assess satisfaction with their day surgery experience, including details on their admission, care and postoperative course. The questionnaire responses were anonymous and there was no follow-up of non-respondents. RESULTS: The overall response rate to the questionnaire was 37.3%. There was considerable variation in response rates across hospitals, ranging from a low of 14.7% to a high of 52.7%. Three procedures accounted for 55% of responses: endoscopies of the gastrointestinal tract (21.7%), gynaecological procedures (18.3%) and eye procedures (16.3%). Day surgery was generally well accepted. Of all the respondents, 78.4% would recommend day surgery to others and 94.2% would recommend the day surgery unit that they used. Respondents found their day surgery experience to be as they had expected or less worrying than expected in 87.0% of cases. The proportion requiring hospital readmission in the seven day postoperative period was 2.7%. The survey showed that the units operated quite differently in two aspects of day surgery provision: the scheduling of patient admissions; and post-discharge contact with patients to check on their recovery.
