Ribbon Cutting for Renovated Pediatric Emergency Room at Sunrise Children’s Hospital

By | Featured, News

Sunrise Children’s Hospital leaders were joined by local dignitaries, community members and a past patient for a ribbon-cutting to unveil the newly-renovated Pediatric Emergency Room that is “bettER for kids.”

Designed with kids in mind, the newly-renovated pediatric Emergency Room at Sunrise Children’s Hospital features: bright, comforting colors to create a welcoming kid-friendly space; two separate waiting room areas with potential to create “sick” and “sickest” areas during winter months; fast-track connected to the ER unit to treat lower acuity patients allowing for improved patient flow; specially-trained pediatric nurses; physicians board-certified in pediatric emergency medicine; and much more.

“When it comes to caring for kids, we know the ER can be a scary place and we know kids aren’t one-size-fits-all,” said Todd P. Sklamberg, Chief Executive Officer, Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. “The renovation of the Pediatric ER at Sunrise Children’s Hospital was designed with kids in mind to give them the highly-specialized and right-sized care they require in a calming, kid-friendly environment.”

Jantzen and Diana Bruch shared their personal story bringing their 11 month-old son, Carter, to Sunrise Children’s Hospital Pediatric ER for what they did not know at the time was a scorpion sting. Carter was throwing up, very visibly upset, and in great pain. Upon arriving at the pediatric ER, the care team immediately identified he was showing symptoms of a scorpion sting and administered the anti-scorpion medication, which began working quickly. “We are thankful for the entire team here and the truly phenomenal job they did in caring for Carter and my wife and I as well,” said Jantzen Bruch. “We are fortunate to have this facility in our community.”

From the kid-friendly design, to specially-trained pediatric nurses, 24-hour pediatric emergency medicine physicians and pediatricians, the Pediatric ER at Sunrise Children’s Hospital is dedicated to kids and completely separate from adult ER patients. When it comes to caring for kids, Sunrise Children’s Hospital is “bettER for kids.”

Heart Disease May Negatively Affect Athletes

By | Featured, News

Las Vegas Heart Associates’ Physician Leading Author of Study

In May, the American College of Cardiology published an Expert Analysis on Non-Ischemic Myocardial Fibrosis in Athletes.  A local sports cardiologist, Alfred Danielian, MD, FACC, FASE, was featured as the leading author of the analysis providing valuable input relating to athletes and their training.

Non-ischemic myocardial fibrosis is a serious heart condition that can cause heart failure, irregular or abnormal heart rhythms and may even result in death.  The disease affects the muscular tissue of the heart causing an accumulation of scar tissue as a result of the disease. If enough scar tissue forms, this accumulation may be detrimental to the heart. Dr. Danielian and the co-authors of the analysis reported the following:

  • Prolonged, high-intensity exercise may cause cardiac fibrosis, even in the absence of predisposition to cardiac disease.
  • The prognostic significance of myocardial fibrosis in an otherwise healthy athlete remains controversial.
  • Findings of focal scar at the right ventricular hinge points in asymptomatic athletes is of uncertain clinical significance.

As a nationally recognized sports cardiologist, Dr. Danielian has an extensive background in evaluating and assessing many different types of athletes from recreational, collegiate, semi-professional, and professional levels.  Dr. Danielian is active in the athletic community providing important and up-to-date information for the community through his active role on the American College of Cardiology Sports and Exercise Cardiology Section Leadership Council.

United Health Foundation Publishes 2021 Health Disparities Report

By | Featured, News

The United Health Foundation released the inaugural America’s Health Rankings Health Disparities Report, which highlights the constant and changing contours of disparities across race and ethnicity, education, gender and geography across the country. This unique report paints a comprehensive portrait of health inequities by focusing on 30 measures of health as well as on several subpopulation groups.

Here in Nevada, the 2021 Health Disparities Report finds:

  • A 64% increase in food insecurity in households headed by an adult with a high school education between 2003-2007 and 2015-2019 from 9.8% to 16.1%.
  • A 28% decrease in unemployment in civilians living in non-metropolitan areas between 2005-2009 and 2015-2019 from 8.0% to 5.8%.
  • A 13% increase in low birthweight in Hispanic infants between 2003-2006 and 2016-2019 from 6.7% to 7.6%.
  • A 28% decrease in infant mortality in African American infants between 2003-2006 and 2015-2018 from 13.4 to 9.6 deaths (before age 1), per 1,000 live births.

Additionally, Nevada saw an increase in income equality since 2011, although the ratio is still lower than the national ratio. Other health disparities that are identified in the report include: a major decrease in avoiding care due to cost for African American adults, and an increase in physical inactivity in Hispanic adults.

First Cohort of Seven Students Slated to Graduate July 2

An innovative new program that began in Las Vegas is giving medical assistants the opportunity to gain free training to advance their career while still on the job.  This tuition free program, compliments of HCA Healthcare’s CareNow® Urgent Care clinics, will be graduating the first cohort of seven students slated to graduate on July 2nd.

This new training program allows front line workers to receive free online training — while at work—to become a limited medical radiography technologist (LMRT), which is a higher paying role and can help them along on their future career path. The primary duties of LMRTs are to perform certain diagnostic imaging tests for patients. Having higher skilled healthcare workers at CareNow® Urgent Care clinics ultimately benefits patient care and patient satisfaction while providing career advancement to employees.

  • The program was designed and piloted at Las Vegas CareNow® Urgent Care with cohorts in the company’s Las Vegas and Houston markets.
  • It is expected to roll out to the Austin and Nashville markets in 2021. Later, the program will expand to California, Florida and Denver.
  • The program is six-months and is a combination of online learning and hands-on practicum within the urgent care and hospital facilities.
  • It offers a nationally accredited program through partnership with the College of Healthcare Professionals.
  • The online training is free for registered participants; who must be full-time medical assistants in good standing with CareNow®.
  • Once participants pass the state LMRT exam and receive state licensure, they are promoted to a higher-level position at CareNow®.
  • There are 17 CareNow® locations in Las Vegas and more than 150 throughout the country. CareNow® clinics are open seven days a week to help the community receive urgent care, COVID testing plus more when they need it most.

Burn & Reconstructive Center of Sunrise Hospital Offers Nevadans Hot Pavement Warning Guidance

By | Featured, News

Nevadans are experiencing an excessive heat wave, which brings with it the burn dangers for unprotected feet and hands. The Burn and Reconstructive Center of Sunrise Hospital is offering residents and visitors sound guidance to avoid hot pavement and other dangers.

“Environmentally, we have excessive heat warnings throughout the summer with temperatures creeping over 100 degrees, often 110-plus,” explains Jay Coates, DO, medical director of the Burn and Reconstructive Center of Sunrise Hospital in partnership with Burn Centers of America, the largest burn network in the world. “One of the biggest threats to individuals is just the ground and pavement; black asphalt can get to 170-175 degrees – that kind of heat you can liken to cooking a medium done steak.”

Coates says the biggest mistake most people make is taking a short walk across the hot pavement barefoot. “One might think it’s only a few steps and, if I make a quick dash, no harm can come. In reality, they get caught halfway between with no quick escape route or relief and they burn off the bottoms of their feet,” Coates says. “This affects people who are taking walks, riding bikes, being around or near a swimming pool, anything that could involve an accidental spill, causing a fall to hit the pavement.” He warns those couple of minutes on the hot asphalt could lead to second or third-degree burns.

The Burn and Reconstructive Center at Sunrise Hospital offers these burn prevention and heat safety tips:

  • Protect your hands with coverings on car seats and door handles as these objects can heat up fast in the open sun;
  • Be cognitive of your environment, especially around swimming pools – if there’s a nice, cool deck receiving a lot of water coverage, you should be fine, but watch for open, dry concrete areas around a pool which can be extremely hot and has potential to cause burns;
  • Make sure you have good shoes, secured to your feet when walking across the hot pavement;
  • Park your car in the shade or covered area whenever possible;
  • Never leave a child or pet alone in a car, not even for a minute to prevent heatstroke and even death; and
  • As the environment is extremely dry, avoid outdoor grilling or fireworks, especially in the mountainous areas where there is much dry vegetation.

The capability within the Burn & Reconstructive Center of Sunrise Hospital includes treatment for all adult and pediatric burn types (chemical, electrical, friction/road rash, frostbite, inhalation, radiation and thermal), treatment for hand and upper extremity injuries, and skin and soft tissue disorder treatment.

Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center and Sunrise Children’s Hospital offer high quality, patient-centered healthcare to the residents of Southern Nevada, its surrounding region, and the millions of visitors that come to Las Vegas. Sunrise Hospital serves as Nevada’s largest acute care facility and Level II Trauma Center, which is located just minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. Occupying the same campus is Sunrise Children’s Hospital, Nevada’s largest, most comprehensive children’s hospital. Together, both facilities offer a full range of services for both children and adults. To learn more about The Burn and Reconstructive Center of Sunrise Hospital, visit their website.

Heat Safety Tips from The Valley Health System

By | Featured, News

Valley Shares Tips for People and Pets to Safely Navigate Record High Temperatures

After a mild spring, it may be a shock to the system when temperatures regularly reach the triple digit mark. The Valley Health System urges all Southern Nevada residents to protect their health by leveraging these heat safety tips, and learning the signs of heat illness.

  • Never leave kids, pets or disabled adults in the car, even with the engine running. When the engine isn’t running, a car can heat up by 20 degrees in 10 minutes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  • Stay inside during the hottest parts of the day; run your errands in the early morning or later evening.
  • If you are outside, wear light-colored, loose fitting clothing, a hat and sunscreen. Protect your feet by using sunscreen and wearing water shoes or flip flops.
  • Cool your car as much as possible. Crack the windows for ventilation. Cover your steering wheel and car seats so they are cooler to touch. Protect your hands when touching door handles or opening/closing the trunks.
  • Some medications may cause you to be more susceptible to the heat. Listen to your body and don’t push yourself.
  • The very young and the elderly are more susceptible to heat; keep a close watch on younger children and create a communication plan with older relatives and friends so they know how to reach you in case of emergencies.
  • Protect your skin. Wear hats or use umbrellas to fend off the harsh sun rays. Replenish sunscreen to avoid sunburns. Be sure to apply sunscreen to scalps, tips of ears, tops of feet and whatever your clothes or bathing suit doesn’t cover. Don’t forget the back of your neck, arms and legs.
  • Schedule hydration breaks throughout the day. When playing outdoors, it’s important to take water breaks every 20 to 30 minutes. Because our perspiration evaporates so quickly in Southern Nevada, we may not be aware of our water loss, so set the alarm on your phone to remind you to take a drink. Always bring extra water when running errands.
  • Think before you drink. Water is the best source to rehydrate your body and, if you are actively exercising, sports beverages can help replace the salt and minerals lost during exercise. Alcohol and soda can dehydrate the body, so sip those in moderation during the summer months.  Take advantage of water-based foods such as watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini and tomatoes to keep hydrated.
  • Beat the heat and stay cooler by seeking shade, wearing a hat or carrying an umbrella, placing a cold towel around your neck and behind your knees, running your wrists under cold water, sitting in front of a fan, jumping in a swimming pool or taking a cool bath or shower.
  • Know the signs and symptoms of heat illness:

o   Heat exhaustion:

  • muscle cramping
  • heavy sweating
  • weakness
  • cold, pale and clammy skin
  • a fast but weak pulse
  • nausea or vomiting.

o   What to do: immediately take steps to cool down the body and if they don’t feel better, seek immediate medical attention.

o   Heat stroke

  • a body temperature above 103 degrees
  • hot, red, dry or moist skin
  • a rapid and strong pulse
  • possible unconsciousness.

o   What to do: Immediate medical attention required. Call 911. Take steps to cool the body but do not give the person fluids.

Dignity Health Siena Hospital Achieves First-in-Nevada Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery Accreditation

By | Featured, News

St. Rose Dominican Surgical Team Earns Affirmation From Global Review Entity

The Siena Campus of Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican recently achieved accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery, recognized for providing the highest quality of care and patient safety by Surgical Review Corporation, an independent, not-for-profit, organization that administers best-in-class accreditation programs for medical facilities and professionals.

The St. Rose Siena hospital is also the first Nevada hospital to achieve Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery accreditation. Status as an accredited facility means the Siena Campus has met or exceeded nationally recognized standards set by the global third-party organization. Not all hospitals and surgeons seek accreditation; not all that undergo the rigorous requirements and inspection process are granted accreditation.

“Excellence is a Dignity Health core value and we pursued this distinction to demonstrate our commitment,” said Lawrence Barnard, President & CEO of the Siena Campus. “We recognize that excellence is not simply an achievement, it is a culture that must be fostered and sustained. This achievement is only possible with the ongoing commitment of our entire team of talented medical professionals. As the first hospital in Nevada to achieve this accreditation, we hope that patients and families who rely on us for their care can come to us with even more confidence, knowing that Siena professionals strive to uphold the highest level of excellence every day.”

Dr. Rodney Buzzas, Siena Chief Medical Officer, added, “As medical professionals, we recognize both the challenges and advantages of working on the forward edge of technology. Utilizing advanced robotic surgical techniques, surgeons are able to perform a broad range of minimally invasive procedures, which benefit patients through smaller incisions, fewer complications, and generally faster recovery.”

Health care organizations and surgeons seeking accreditation by SRC undergo an extensive self-assessment and inspection process. This includes physicians, nurses and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization or surgeon improve care and services.

“We’re proud to recognize Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican’s Siena Campus for its commitment to advancing and providing quality care for all patients,” said Gary M. Pratt, CEO of SRC. “This accreditation signals that this hospital is among the best in this specialty and is dedicated to delivering the highest level of care possible.”

On average, the St. Rose Siena Campus performs more than 100 robotic surgeries each month. Common robotic surgical procedures include cardiothoracic, general, gynecologic, and urology surgeries.

Accreditation remains in place as long as the medical facility remains in good standing and in verifiable compliance with all current requirements and other program criteria. Designees are evaluated periodically throughout their accreditation and inspections are performed every three years.
