What are sutures? Sutures are the stitches that doctors, and especially surgeons, use to hold skin, internal organs, blood vessels and all other tissues of the human body together . They must be strong (so they do not break), non-toxic and hypoallergenic (to avoid adverse reactions in the body), and flexible (so they can be tied and knotted easily). Wikipedia

Sutures are the stitches that doctors, and especially surgeons, use to hold skin, internal organs, blood vessels and all other tissues of the human body together .

They must be strong (so they do not break), non-toxic and hypoallergenic (to avoid adverse reactions in the body), and flexible (so they can be tied and knotted easily).

Why Do medical librarians need sutures? To bring together ( suture ) clinicians and administrators with the information they need to do their jobs. To facilitate the sharing of needed information To market the libraries To justify the hospital’s financial commitment to us

There is a difference between An academic or public library’s mission to share information A proprietary/secure institutions’ library’s mission to protect information Statutory and regulatory limits on access to secure networks…not just philosophical (JCAHO, HIPAA) Justifiable concerns that hospital employees use Internet for “non-hospital uses License issues that we all have Web 2.0 problems in a proprietary/secure institution

There is a difference between

An academic or public library’s mission to share information

A proprietary/secure institutions’ library’s mission to protect information

Statutory and regulatory limits on access to secure networks…not just philosophical (JCAHO, HIPAA)

Justifiable concerns that hospital employees use Internet for “non-hospital uses

License issues that we all have

Hospital limitations Residents want to use IM… hospital telecommunications dept. doesn’t want to open IM availability Residents & nurses want to use web-based video seminars…hospital has blocked flash video protocol Inter-organizational activity impossible…outsiders can not access our networks Not all hospital staff have unlimited Internet access No access to Second Life, FaceBook, MySpace…organizational policies prohibit access, not technical considerations Even roll-out of approved content-management system delayed because of lack of oversight of critical information – sharing/management of content Nothing happens fast – Creating access to ourLibrary catalog, outside firewall, took 3 years!

Even roll-out of approved content-management system delayed because of lack of oversight of critical information – sharing/management of content

Nothing happens fast – Creating access to ourLibrary catalog, outside firewall, took 3 years!

Summing up: even with all the hospital’s concerns & limitations: It is important for library staff to keep up with the technology our patrons do already use or should be (?) encouraged to use. Those with the purse strings should understand the shifting roles of librarians and what only we can bring to the institution. Medical Librarians need to support health care providers who have more questions and less and less time to ask questions or get answers. We can use technology to support them more efficiently. If the tool is the right tool for the job, find a way to use it.
