Medical Services
and Centers

CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial Livingston

CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial Livingston, a beautifully modern and innovative facility, provides patients with access to 24/7 critical care, diagnostic services and much more. The medical and nursing staff at CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial Livingston supports the health of the surrounding communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering, unmatched dedication.

Located just off Highway 59 south, the 66-bed hospital provides more than 60,000 patient services each year, with half of those services being offered in the Level 4 Trauma-designated Emergency Department. With advanced technology and a wide array of services, the highly trained nurses and physicians are prepared to tackle all of life s emergencies and beyond.

Nearly 60 highly dedicated physicians on the hospital s medical staff specialize in Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics Gynecology, Orthopedics, General Surgery, Family Practice, Podiatry, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Nephrology, Emergency Care, Radiology, Urology, and Pulmonology.

In 2016, CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial Livingston officially broke ground on its state-of-the-art, 16,000-square-foot Emergency Department which will be located on the ground floor of the South Tower Building. It will include 27 stations, including 3 trauma rooms, 3 fast track rooms, 2 psych rooms, 10 exam rooms, 1 isolation room, 6 results-waiting stations, and adjacent radiology, ultrasound and CT rooms. There will also be designated areas for disaster response and decontamination. Construction on the $10.2 million facility will be complete in early 2017.

The hospital invested $1.6 million in superior imaging technology. Expanding the hospital s inpatient diagnostic capabilities enables CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial to offer high-quality services and deliver cost-effective care to area patients. The Imaging Department provides MRI, CT scan, nuclear medicine scans, 4D Ultrasound, cardiac echocardiograms, fluoroscopy, bone density scanning and digital mammography.

The hospital also is equipped with an established Sleep Center which offers East Texans an easy and convenient option in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders with the latest in medical technology. From the highly-skilled team of polysomnographer technologists to the hotel-like amenities, the Sleep Center is the first of its kind in Polk County. Amenities include individually climate-controlled suites with plush queen size bedding accented with premium sheets and comforters, wood furnishings, flat screen televisions and personal bathrooms with tiled walk-in showers.

CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial s modern patient tower is unique to the Livingston community. Two floors in the tower are home to medical surgical rooms and a new intensive care unit, with room to grow in the future. The 160,000-square-foot tower was designed by local physicians and nurses to be an active part of a patient s healing process.

Additionally, the hospital has a fully integrated women s center that offers obstetrics and gynecology care, labor and delivery and digital mammography.

Since 2009, the hospital has provided the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program for sexual assault victims in Polk, San Jacinto and surrounding counties within a specialized area of the hospital to accommodate the patient in privacy and comfort. The SANE Program is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Two certified nurse examiners are certified for the care of both adult and pediatric patients, providing medical and legal exams of patients who present with forensic health care needs; maintaining chain of custody with medical and legal documentation and storage; and are responsible for testifying as expert witnesses in a court of law. These registered nurses received specialized classroom and clinical training in the evaluation and treatment of sexual assault in patients who have experienced or are experiencing violence or abuse. Every patient seen gets a complete assessment with injury documentation utilizing body maps and diagrams, as well as photography, and evidence collection as appropriate. The patient also receives resources and referrals. All mandatory healthcare professional reporting requirements are met and documented. The SANE program interfaces with medical professionals, law enforcement agencies, criminal justice, victim advocacy, and external support agencies that provide services to victims of sexual assault.

With the capacity to open 200 additional patient rooms, a highly skilled medical staff, and a talented and knowledgeable group of nurses and technicians, CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial Livingston is a premiere hospital located in one of the fastest growing retirement communities in Texas.

The modern facility evolved from humble beginnings. In 1950, Polk County leaders built a 45-bed county-owned hospital in Livingston to ensure the people of Deep East Texas had access to affordable, quality medical services. In 1994, CHI St. Luke s Health Memorial assumed ownership of the county hospital and transformed it into the state-of-the-art facility known today.

In 2014, Memorial transfered ownership to Catholic Health Initiatives, a dynamic and well-respected health care organization. In becoming part of CHI, Memorial benefits from CHI s overall scale and reach as well as the exciting new ventures that CHI St. Luke s Health is undertaking with the Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Heart Institute in Houston.

Q: I am thinking about buying a mobility scooter, what do I do now?

A: Buying a mobility scooter is a great choice that gives you the independence to come and go on your own.

You need to consider a few things before you get started. How far do you want to go? The size of batteries in a scooter determines the distance you can travel. What is the terrain you want to travel In? Are you traveling down gravel pathways or trail cruising in the parks? Are there many hills in your area? Where do you live and where are you going to park it? It is important that your scooter will fit in your environment, perhaps an elevator is involved. What is your height and weight?

Picking the proper scooter will insure your comfort level while traveling longer distances as well as the correct weight capacity will determine your scooter’s performance. Which is better, a scooter or a powerchair? Small portable scooters are great for stowing in and out of the car for daytrips. Medium to large scooters are well suited for outdoor traveling and in and out of grocery stores and malls. Smaller powerchairs are best for indoor use while medium to large powerchairs are suitable for indoor use and moderate outdoor travel.

10 newborns infected with MRSA at UC Irvine Medical Center

Friday, April 14, 2017

IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) —

A dangerous outbreak of a superbug infected 10 newborn babies at one of the largest hospitals in Orange County, raising serious concerns.

UC Irvine Medical Center confirmed Thursday its neonatal intensive care unit contracted Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a superbug also known as MRSA.

The superbug is a bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics, which makes it incredibly difficult to treat.

The 10 babies contracted MRSA between August 2016 and March 2017, the hospital said in a statement released this week.

Hospital officials said the babies with MRSA were treated and all survived. None of them have active infections.

Four staff members also tested positive for the clonal MRSA strain in January, during a process in which an antiseptic soap and ointment were used to reduce the presence of MRSA on the skin and in the nose. The hospital said all were treated.

One of the two NICU units was closed for disinfection as the cause of the outbreak remained a mystery.

In a statement, hospital officials said they were working toward more preventative measures, “UC Irvine health has escalated infection prevention measures to minimize the likelihood of transmission within the healthcare environment and among patients, healthcare workers and visitors such as family members.”

Marian Hollingsworth, who filed a complaint about the way the outbreak was handled with the state, called The Los Angeles Times and alerted reporters about the outbreak dating back to August. She said hospital officials should have been more forthcoming to pregnant women admitted to the hospital for births.

Spokesman John Murray said suggestions the hospital was not forthcoming about information were “completely untrue” because it was working with Orange County health officials since August and informed the California Department of Public Health.

“Both agencies reviewed our infection prevention plans and signed off on our efforts,” Murray said.

In addition, Orange County Health Care Agency officials said they do not believe a public announcement of the situation at UCI would have helped lower the rate of infections, according to Jessica Good, a spokeswoman for the agency.

Tips for family members to help reduce the likelihood of colonization or infection in the NICU include: wearing soft cotton gowns and gloves when interacting with babies, cleaning cellphones and mobile devices with alcohol wipes and placing them into plastic bags upon entry into the NICU and prior to handling babies, and engaging in decolonization.

Hospital Malpractice Lawyers

In times of emergency, patients turn to hospitals and surgical facilities for treatment. Unfortunately, the quality of care provided at one hospital can be substantially different from what is provided at another facility. If a hospital makes a mistake, it can result in serious injuries, or even death, for the patient.

Some of the common injuries that may occur at a hospitals as a result of a medical mistake or negligent care are:

The malpractice law firm of Saiontz Kirk, P.A. provides free consultations to review the circumstances surrounding the treatment to determine if an injury could have been prevented. If you, a friend or family member suffered an injury as a result of a hospital s negligence, request a free hospital malpractice lawsuit evaluation .

HOSPITAL NEGLIGENCE

Malpractice Law Firm

The lawyers at Saiontz Kirk review all potential hospital lawsuits and other medical malpractice cases under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are never any fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.

The quality of care at a hospital is significantly influenced by the training, education, supervision and resources provided to the employees.

In many situations, hospitals and medical facilities do not provide the doctors and nurses with the necessary resources to effectively treat and manage their patients.

As a result of insufficient training, supervision and resources, the doctors and nurses are placed in a position to fail. These situations are often largely created by motivations to increase profits for the corporations which own the hospital.

During the course of a hospital stay, nurses and other medical staff must make split second decisions. When they are not properly educated and placed in a position where there are insufficient resources to render the appropriate standard of medical care, devastating injuries can result.

When mistakes could have been prevented, the patient and their family should not be responsible for the damages that are caused by the hospital s negligence.

HOSPITAL MALPRACTICE LAWSUITS

The medical malpractice law firm of Saiontz Kirk, P.A. has years of experience handling complex hospital negligence lawsuits. Our clients recover multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts every year and we have the resources to fight large corporations and hospitals to protect the interests of our clients.

There are never any out of pocket expenses to pursue a lawsuit against a hospital or medical provider through our law firm, and we receive no fees unless we obtain a recovery

Every claim for medical malpractice has a time limit within which the lawsuit must be filed, known as the Statute of Limitations. Time may be running out on your claim, so you should have any potential claim reviewed as soon as possible to make sure your family is protected.

County Farmer directs America’s Farmers Grow Communities donation to North Adams Elementary School

Farmers Make a Difference in Rural Communities by Directing Donations from Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities Program to Local Nonprofit Organizations

  • The America’s Farmers Grow Communities program will provide more than $3 million in financial support to nonprofits across the US in 2017
  • Since 2010, the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program has given more than $26 million to more than 8,000 nonprofits across rural America.

Seaman, Ohio (April 27, 2017) – Adams County farmer, Ronald Purdin, has won the opportunity to direct a $2,500 dollar donation from the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, to North Adams Elementary.

North Adams Elementary will use the funds to purchase additional chrome books for student use. [“We truly appreciate Mr. Purdin nominating our school for this donation. This $2,500 donation will help us purchase more technology to use with our students. It is our goal to someday have a computer for every student in our school,”] said, Deirdre Mills, North Adams Elementary Principal.

The Grow Communities program’s purpose is to make a positive impact in farm communities by partnering with farmers to support the causes that are important to them in their communities. Each year, farmers enter for a chance to win a $2,500 donation that they direct to a local nonprofit.

Since the program began in 2010, farmers have directed more than $26 million in donations across a broad cross-section of organizations that reflect the makeup and character of rural America, including food banks, emergency response organizations, schools, youth agriculture programs and many others.

“Farmers have directed funds to more than 8,000 community organizations across rural America since Grow Communities began,” said Al Mitchell, Monsanto Fund president. “Farmers are truly committed to this program because they see the difference the donationmakes in their community.”

Junior High TAG “secret” shopping

On Friday, December 9 th. Junior High TAG students from OVSD high schools had the pleasure of again helping Cece Hummel of Venture Productions in the annual Christmas Sharing program for youth in our county. The thirty-four student “secret” shoppers were each given Christmas shopping lists which included the amount of money to be spent for each recipient and some of the recipient’s most wanted or needed items and wishes. It is always encouraging to watch the students’ labor carefully over choosing the best and most perfect gifts for each child they are shopping for. This is an excellent community service project and one TAG students have enjoyed doing for several years.

Sixteen rural Ohio school districts and their corresponding counties and townships will share $2,038,898 from the sale of timber from Ohio’s state forests, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
