  Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Hawaii | CDC EID
Outpatient isolates were defined as those collected from patients in 1) an outpatient department, emergency department, ambulatory clinic, or same-day-surgery clinic associated with a hospital, or 2) a private physician's office, community public health center, or university health center.
The overall proportion of MRSA from 2000 to 2002 in outpatients was 22% (5,135/23,550) versus 39% (3,071/7,932) for inpatients (p<0.01).
Moreover, the significant differences in resistance to nonoxacillin antimicrobial drugs observed between outpatients and inpatients suggest that the MRSA isolates from outpatients were not, on average, nosocomial-associated isolates cultured in the outpatient setting (13,14,16).

It was found that together all outpatients scored higher than normal subjects on the neuroticism personality domain and lower on the agreeableness and conscientiousness domains.
When sexually violent outpatients were compared with non-sexually violent outpatients, the scores of sexually violent patients were found to be higher than those of non-sexually violent patients on the neuroticism and agreeableness personality domains.
As sexually violent outpatients are still less “agreeable” than the general Dutch population, it is recommended that moral reasoning training with problem sexual situations be part of the treatment programme for these patients.

 News - Low Molecular Weight Heparin Preferred Anticoagulant Therapy for Outpatients
According to Dr. Brown, "bridging anticoagulation management on an outpatient basis is not a viable treatment option for all patients." Exclusion criteria include comorbid conditions, concurrent use of other medications or certain herbal products, lack of adherence or social support, and limitations of the patient.
Warfarin, the most commonly used oral anticoagulant for chronic prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in the United States, has a slow onset of action and a half-life of 36 to 42 hours.
According to Dr. Brown, LMWH treatment in the outpatient setting has particular appeal because they have a fixed dose and can be administered subcutaneously once or twice daily.
