This research searched to verify if the nurses of a private hospital in São Paulo-SP, Brazil, have costs management view and to observe how occur their participation in the planning levels, specifically in relation to the costs. Forty nurses were interviewed during their journey through a questionnaire about caring costs management and the levels of organizational planning. It was observed that 85% of the nurses interviewed affirmed that they don't participate on the caring costs management, and that 45% of the participants didn't know to explain the importance of this knowledge. The majority of the nurses interviewed (62.5%) affirmed that they don't participate of the strategic institutional planning and, among those that participated; the majority didn't know to explain about their participation.

The aim of the present study was to verify the important factors of tacesics that should be observed while touching the elderly. This qualitative and exploratory field of study was developed using 117 undergraduate students and healthcare professionals who participated in a training course regarding nonverbal communication in gerontology. The results revealed that the majority of the participants were able to identify at least one care factor that must be respected when touching the elderly. The discourses allowed for the construction of nine categories indicating the conditions that are necessary for high-quality affective care provided within the tacesics context; these conditions included the authorization for the touch to occur, location of the touch, intensity of the touch, condition of the elderly person, intentionality and type of touch, duration of the touch, gender and age of the person who touches and of the person being touched, frequency of the touch, and characteristics of the hands that touch. Touch is part of the quotidian practice of healthcare professionals and expresses their dedication and its related emotions, thereby revealing the quality of the care that is provided. Source

We present a Nd:YLiF4 diode-side-pumped resonator architecture based on a gain-guided, mode-selective technique that employs a double pass of the fundamental laser mode through the crystal. The folded cavity is very compact, robust and cost efficient. With this design we demonstrate 19 W of quasi-cw, stable diffraction-limited laser emission at 1053 nm when pumping at 792 nm with 35.4 W. The slope efficiency of the laser is 65.3% and the optical-to-optical efficiency is 53.6%, which is, to the best of our knowledge, the highest efficiency reported for Nd:YLiF4 lasers pumped into the 4F5/2 band, including longitudinal pumping schemes and lasers emitting at the higher gain line of 1047 nm. © 2013 Astro Ltd.

This work demonstrates the power scalability of double-beam-mode controlling, a technique that has generated the highest optical efficiency reported so far for Nd:YLF lasers. We analyze two types of power scaling possibilities by numerical simulations: multiplication of intracavity pump modules and MOPA configuration. About 44 W of TEM00 output power at 1053 nm was experimentally demonstrated with a beam-parameter product of 1.07 × 1.15. The results show great ease of power scaling without sacrificing beam quality. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Source

We analyze the performance of a VBG equipped diode of narrow linewidth in a side-pumped double-beam, mode-controlled resonator and demonstrate power scaling without loss of beam quality by a factor of three, when compared to previous results. 69 W of diffraction-limited laser output power at 1053 nm in a Nd:YLF lasers are demonstrated with slope efficiency of 65% and record optical-to-optical efficiency of 60%. ©2015 Optical Society of America.
