Illness in Clark County Residents Linked to Vaping

By | Press Release

Two additional Clark County residents have been identified as having severe respiratory illness linked to e-cigarette products. The Southern Nevada Health District reports both cases are individuals ages 18 or older. Clark County’s first confirmed case was in a person under the age of 18. A pulmonary infection that would provide an alternative diagnosis has not been identified. All three were hospitalized but are now recovering from their illnesses.

One of the individuals reported using e-cigarettes with nicotine products only. Two of the individuals reported using tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products, and one also reported using cannabinoid (CBD) oils. All three individuals reported purchasing or acquiring their products from different sources, including friends, retail outlets, and through online purchases. 

“While the cause of this outbreak is still unknown, there is an undeniable association with the use of e-cigarette products,” said Dr. Joe Iser, Chief Health Officer for the Southern Nevada Health District. “My continued recommendation is for people not to use any vaping products or e-cigarettes.” 

The Health District further recommends these products never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, and people who do not currently use tobacco products. People who currently use tobacco products who wish to quit smoking should use FDA-approved therapies. Symptoms associated with the reported illnesses include: 

  • Respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain)
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea)
  • Non-specific symptoms (fatigue, fever, or weight loss)

People who use e-cigarettes and experience any of these symptoms are advised to seek medical care right away. People seeking help quitting tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, can contact the Nevada Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-Quit-Now or 1-855-DÉJELO-YA (1-855-335-3569) from a Nevada area code.

There have been 380 cases of lung illness associated with the use of e-cigarette products, or vaping, reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC’s case report was revised to only include confirmed and probable cases. Previously reported numbers included possible cases still under investigation by local and state health departments. Seven deaths have been reported; the most recent occurring in California. These numbers are changing frequently. The CDC continues to report that it has not identified any specific substance or e-cigarette product that is

linked in all cases. Many but not all patients report using e-cigarette products that contain THC.

Some have reported the use of e-cigarette products containing only nicotine.  Up to date information on the outbreak is available on the CDC website

Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health Expands Caregiving Program to Establish Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair

By | Press Release

Lucille Carriere, Ph.D. to hold chair, among the first-of-its-kind, aimed at creating best practices for Alzheimer’s and other dementia caregivers through evidence-based research

Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health builds on its commitment to caregivers by enhancing its consortium with the addition of the Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair, held by Lucille Carrier, Ph.D., clinical health psychologist.

The endowed chair is named after Angie Ruvo, original caregiver to the center’s namesake, Lou Ruvo, and mother of co-founder Larry Ruvo. It is also a tribute to Larry’s wife, Camille Ruvo, and her long-standing, tenacious fight to bring attention to the plight of all caregivers. In this role, Dr. Carriere will conduct evidence-based research to better understand the effects of caregiving and create tailored interventions that optimize the overall health and well-being of dementia caregivers.

“Every 65 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, but in that same time, someone becomes a caregiver. As these numbers continue to skyrocket, it’s becoming increasingly important to understand the scope of the caregiver burden, economically, physically and mentally,” said Dr. Carriere. “While there are numerous types of programs and interventions currently available, the key is aligning the right intervention with the specific needs of an individual caregiver to create better outcomes, and I look forward to helping bridge this gap.”

The Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair meets a critical need in today’s current landscape of neurodegenerative disease care. In the U.S., approximately 16.1 million Americans provide an estimated 18.4 billion hours of unpaid care to loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These caregivers are twice as likely to experience substantial emotional, financial and physical difficulties as their non-dementia caregiving counterparts.

Since opening its doors in 2009, caregiving has remained a pillar of Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which offers a variety of no-cost educational support programming designed to inform, enlighten and empower both patients and caregivers as they navigate the extraordinary challenges of brain disease. Dr. Carriere will expand existing programming to include a curriculum that encompasses the entire physical and emotional health of the caregiver, including areas such as sleep and chronic pain, among others.

In alignment with the center’s goal to personalize the treatment of neurodegenerative disease through a complete spectrum of disease-modifying therapies, Dr. Carriere will offer programming that matches a caregiver’s individual needs throughout their loved one’s entire disease journey, from early onset to end of life. As part of her research, Dr. Carriere will measure caregiver response to these interventions to identify optimal programs, needs and effective targets for addressing the many facets of caregiving. The results of this research will help to improve the lives of individual caregivers, and can be used as recommendations for best practices across this entire caregiver population.

“Caregiving is a thankless job that is 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is one that most of us will experience at some point in our lives, be it to a loved one suffering from a neurodegenerative disease or a friend or family member that falls ill,” said Camille Ruvo, co-founder of Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. “My husband and I turned our shared caregiving experience into purpose through the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, which has been on the forefront of caregiver support and education for 10 years now. The Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair is one way we are continuing to invest in these silent heroes and we will not stop until there is a cure.”

Dr. Carriere brings more than five years of experience to the center’s robust neuropsychology program. After graduating with her Ph.D. from Auburn University, she completed her fellowship at the Mellen Program for Multiple Sclerosis at Cleveland Clinic’s main campus. The Angie Ruvo Endowed Caregiving Chair complements her most recent work as a provider in geriatrics for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs where she provided evidence-based interventions and support to dementia caregivers within a home-based primary care program, enabling her to better understand the complex needs of caregivers outside of the traditional clinic setting.

Six Valley Health System Hospitals Earn Honors for Severe Heart Attack Care

By | Press Release, Recognition

The six hospitals of The Valley Health System have been honored by the American Heart Association (AHA) with its Mission: Lifeline® Quality Achievement Awards for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the AHA for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks (ST-elevated myocardial infarction, aka STEMI).

Honors include:
Centennial Hills Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center GOLD

Desert Springs Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center SILVER

Henderson Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center SILVER 

Spring Valley Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center GOLD

Summerlin Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center GOLD

Valley Hospital – Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center GOLD and Mission Lifeline® NSTEMI Bronze Award

Each hospital earned its award by meeting specific criteria and standards of performance for quick and appropriate treatment through emergency procedures to re-establish blood flow to blocked arteries in heart attack patients coming into the hospital directly or by transfer from another facility.

Additionally, Valley Hospital also earned the NSTEMI Bronze Award for its quality improvement for patients with a partial blockage, called non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Once diagnosed, NSTEMI treatment differs from those of STEMI patients. According to the American Heart Association, treatment strategies may include continued medications to impede blood clot formation along with a procedure to examine the inside of the heart.*

According to the American Heart Association, coronary heart disease accounted for approximately 13 percent of deaths in the United States in 2016, equating to 363,452 deaths. Between 2006 and 2016, the annual death rate attributed to coronary artery disease (CAD) declined 31.8% and the actual number of deaths declined by 14.6 percent.**

“Our cardiac response teams have worked diligently since the mid-2000s to improve the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of heart attack patients,” said Dan McBride, MD, Chief Medical Officer for The Valley Health System. “Desert Springs and Valley hospitals were the first to become accredited chest pain centers in 2006 and 2007, respectively. 

“Time lost is heart muscle lost, so we’ve incorporated many partners in our care process, including first responders, hospital emergency, cardiac and follow-up teams, interventional cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons who are vital to the treatment and recovery of patients,” said Dr. McBride.

The hospitals’ work also extends to the southern Nevada community by providing education on heart attack signs and symptoms and partnering with area EMS agencies to provide hands-only CPR demonstrations at the hospitals and various community events. Hands-only CPR is a life-saving technique for someone who collapses suddenly from cardiac arrest. The immediate application of hands-only CPR by family members, coworkers or bystanders is critical to the person’s survival.  According to the AHA website, every minute CPR is delayed, a person’s chance of survival decreases by up to 10 percent. +

“We commend the hospitals of The Valley Health System for their awards in recognition for following evidence-based guidelines for timely heart attack treatment,” said Tim Henry, M.D., Chair of the Mission: Lifeline Acute Coronary Syndrome Subcommittee. “We applaud the significant institutional commitment to their critical role in the system of care for quickly and appropriately treating heart attack patients.”

Background
According to the American Heart Association, every year, more than 250,000 people experience an ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), the deadliest type of heart attack, caused by a blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment. To prevent death, it is critical to restore blood flow as quickly as possible, either by mechanically opening the blocked vessel or by providing clot-busting medication.

The American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program’s goal is to reduce system barriers to prompt treatment for heart attacks, beginning with the 9-1-1 call, to EMS transport and continuing through hospital treatment and discharge. The initiative provides tools, training and other resources to support heart attack care following protocols from the most recent evidence-based treatment guidelines.

The Southern Nevada Health District is reporting Clark County’s first confirmed case of severe respiratory illness linked to e-cigarette products in a person under the age of 18. The youth was hospitalized with respiratory symptoms that met the case definition established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A pulmonary infection has not been identified. The patient was released from the hospital and is recovering. 

“Identifying a case in a young person who used vaping products that should not have been available to them is an unfortunate reminder of how pervasive these items have become and the danger they pose to our children and the public,” said Dr. Joe Iser, Chief Health Officer for the Southern Nevada Health District.

The Health District continues to advise people not to use vaping products and e-cigarettes. These products should never be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women, and people who do not currently use tobacco products.

MountainView Hospital Worked to Crush the Crisis At Prescription Drug Take Back Event

By | Press Release

On Saturday, Sept. 7, MountainView Hospital and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (Metro) held an opioid and prescription drug take back event. During today’s event, 20 pounds of prescription drugs were collected from participants.

In 2017, the most recent data available, there were 412 overdose deaths involving opioids in Nevada, dropping for the first time since at least 1999, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. To see a full accounting of deaths related to opioids, please visit (Resource here.)

MountainView Hospital’s event was part of HCA Healthcare’s first national “Crush the Crisis” opioid take back day. More than 65 HCA Healthcare facilities across 15 states united to collect unused or expired opioids for one day.

“Opioid addiction is a growing crisis not only in Clark County, but across our nation,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “Our goal for ‘Crush the Crisis’ is to raise awareness of the dangers of opioid addiction and educate our community about the proper disposal of these medications. Opioid addiction can happen to anyone and we are providing this drop off opportunity confidentially and anonymously.”

To further help combat the nation’s opioid crisis, HCA Healthcare, the parent company of MountainView Hospital, proudly partners with the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic, consisting of more than 50 organizations that share best practices and identify gaps in the safe treatment of opioid addiction.

A learning health system, which uses data from approximately 31 million annual patient encounters to help continuously improve care, HCA Healthcare has been using the science of “big data” to reduce opioid misuse and transform pain management, with initiatives in surgical, emergency and other care settings, including:

  • Enhanced Surgical Recovery (ESR)/ALTernatives to Opioids in the Emergency Room (ALTO in the ER): HCA Healthcare focuses on a multi-modal approach to acute pain management. This means two or more methods or medications are used to reduce the need to use opioids to manage a patient’s pain while recovering from surgery or in the emergency room. As of August 2019, ESR is live at 140 HCA Healthcare facilities, with the goal to implement in all facilities, in at least one major service line, by the end of 2019. ALTO protocols will be expanded enterprise-wide by the end of 2019.
  • Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS): Physicians have access to aggregated electronic health records that make it more difficult for medication-seekers to doctor-shop or alter prescriptions. ECPS is available across HCA Healthcare.

New West Henderson Development Features Unique and Upscale Retail and Restaurants to Join with Medical and Office Space

By | Developments, Press Release

Commercial real estate developer Stable Development to start project in coming months

One the fastest growing parts of town, West Henderson, will soon have a new 300,000-square-foot, mixed use project from Stable Development, a Las Vegas-based commercial real estate developer, right down the street from the new Raiders headquarters along the growing St. Rose Parkway corridor.

Stable Development plans to start the project on a 12.5-acre property at the cross streets of St. Rose Parkway and Cactus Avenue in 2019. The 300,000-square-foot development will feature a mix of retail, office and medical space. Pre-leasing for the development is underway.

“This development is perfectly situated in the growing West Henderson area just down the street from the Raiders practice facility, existing retail and the Henderson Executive Airport,” said Lance Bradford, chief executive officer of Stable Development. “We anticipate bringing unique and upscale dining and retail options to Henderson where there is a high demand for these services.”

The commercial real estate developer will begin in early 2019 with The Korte Company for construction and the Cunningham Group, an international architecture firm. Stable Development has made a substantial investment in Henderson recently purchasing 8.15 acres from the City of Henderson for $8.25 million to create the 12.5-acre space for the project.

“We believe in this project and we believe in West Henderson,” Bradford said. “This area is growing quickly with new retail, restaurants and services that will support the surrounding communities.”

Stable Development has experienced substantial growth over the last eight years even though the Las Vegas real estate market was enduring one of the worst economic downturns in its history. Other developments in Southern Nevada include: The Parkway in Summerlin, Corporate Center in the southwest region across from IKEA, Seven Hills Business Plaza, Coronado Medical and Surgery Center.
