Twenty-eight Cases of West Nile Virus Reported

By | Press Release

Health District declares outbreak —urges the public to protect themselves from mosquito bites

The Southern Nevada Health District is declaring an outbreak of West Nile virus in Clark County after receiving reports of 28 cases of the disease in humans – the highest case count in a season since the virus was first detected in the state in 2004. In addition to the high number of cases, 17 of the 28 reported cases have had the more serious neuroinvasive form of the illness.

The Health District’s Mosquito Surveillance Program has identified both West Nile and St. Louis encephalitis virus-positive mosquitoes throughout Southern Nevada. West Nile virus-positive mosquitoes have been found in 39 unique ZIP codes, and mosquitoes testing positive for the St. Louis encephalitis virus have been found in 15 unique ZIP codes so far this season. More than 38,600 mosquitoes have been submitted for testing this year. This season 19 percent of mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile or St. Louis encephalitis virus. Last season less than 0.1 percent tested positive for the virus. Updated reports on mosquito activity and human case counts are available on the Health District website each week at www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/programs/mosquito-surveillance/weekly-arbovirus-update/.

“The West Nile virus activity we are seeing in our community is a serious public health concern,” said Dr. Joe Iser, Chief Health Officer of the Southern Nevada Health District. “I urge people to protect themselves from mosquito bites by using repellents whenever they are outdoors and to make sure they are eliminating standing water from around their homes.”

The Health District is reminding the public that West Nile virus is preventable. The disease is transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. The illness is not spread person to person. Most people with the virus (eight out of 10) will have no symptoms or very mild symptoms of illness. About one in five people will develop mild symptoms which include fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Most people with this type of West Nile virus recover completely but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months. About one in 150 people who are infected develop a severe illness affecting the central nervous symptom such as encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord).

The most effective way to keep from getting infected with West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses is to prevent mosquito bites. In addition to using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, IR3535, Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), or 2-undecanone, wear light-colored, long-sleeved shirts and pants, and take steps to control mosquitoes in and around the home. Eliminate breeding sources, including non-circulating ponds, “green” swimming pools, and accumulated sprinkler runoff, which support mosquito breeding. For more tips, go to the Health District’s Mosquito Breeding Prevention website. 

Mosquito activity can be reported to the Health District’s Mosquito Surveillance Program at 702-759-1633.

Southern Nevada Harm Reduction Alliance Hosts its Annual International Overdose Awareness Day Event, Aug. 29

By | Press Release

In 2017, there were 464 fatal drug overdoses (excluding alcohol) in Clark County. Opioid-related overdoses and deaths continue to occur across the United States and the world. In an effort to acknowledge those deaths, the Southern Nevada Harm Reduction Alliance (SNHRA) is participating in its 3rd annual International Overdose Awareness Day, from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Thursday, August 29 at the Chuck Minker Sports Complex, 275 N. Mojave Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89101. The SNHRA will also offer overdose prevention trainings at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Participants will receive a free overdose prevention kit that contains nasal naloxone ((Narcan®), the opioid overdose reversal medication, as well as community resources. For more information about the event, visit http://www.overdoseday.com/las-vegas/  or https://www.facebook.com/SoNVHarmReductionAlliance/. 

The event is an opportunity for community members and partners to remember and acknowledge those who have died or who have suffered permanent injury, reduce the stigma of drug-related deaths, and raise awareness and begin discussions about overdose prevention and drug policy.

Australia’s Penington Institute began International Overdose Awareness Day to offer awareness, education, and training about overdoses and as a memorial to individuals impacted by them. Events are now held worldwide.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were 70,237 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2017, and opioids (prescription and illicit) accounted for 47,600 of those deaths. The CDC estimates that on average, 130 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose.

Although opioid-related deaths in Clark County decreased since 2015, they continue to occur. In 2017, there were 281 opioid-related deaths among Clark County residents. In 2017, the death rate of opioid poisonings (overdoses) in Clark County was 12.7 deaths per 100,000 residents. The rate for Nevada during that same period was 13.7 deaths per 100,000 residents. The rate was highest in the 89101 and 89109 ZIP codes at 39 deaths per 100,000 residents. The national rate during that same period was 14.6 drug-poisoning deaths per 100,000 residents.  

In October 2017, the opioid epidemic was declared a national emergency highlighting the importance of providing viable resources, prevention education, and tools to combat addiction through treatment and recovery efforts. Between 1999 and 2017, the CDC reported that overdose death rates from all substances (excluding alcohol) are highest among people between the ages of 25 and 54. Men are more likely than women to die from an overdose. In addition, overdose rates are highest among non-Hispanic whites, Native Americans, and Alaskan natives.

The Southern Nevada Harm Reduction Alliance (SNHRA) is composed of public health professionals, HIV providers, addiction specialists, syringe exchange programs, homeless service providers, substance use prevention community coalitions, recovery advocates, and health care representatives. Its mission is to improve the health and well-being of people who use drugs by reducing drug-related stigma, overdoses, and the harmful effects of drugs among Southern Nevadans regardless of their circumstances. SNHRA also provides education and resources about reducing substance misuse and unintentional overdose deaths, as well as reducing the risks of acquiring or transmitting bloodborne infections. Each month, the Southern Nevada Health District, in conjunction with members of SNHRA, provides testing for HIV and hepatitis C, sterile syringes, and homeless services. In February 2017, the first comprehensive needle/syringe exchange program in Clark County began operating at Trac-B Exchange, a member of the Southern Nevada Harm Reduction Alliance. Currently, there are five syringe vending machines placed within service provider organizations.

Comprehensive is named official cancer center partner of the Aces and creates dynamic campaign to promote women’s breast health

Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Comprehensive), a multi-specialty practice that has served Southern Nevadans for more than 40 years, is the official cancer center partner of the Women’s National Basketball Association’s (WNBA) Las Vegas Aces.

The multifaceted partnership includes Every Point Counts, a campaign in which $20 from every free throw made during each home game will be donated to American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. It also includes a title game sponsorship of Breast Health Awareness Night on August 20. The title game will feature breast cancer patients and physicians from Comprehensive Cancer Centers throughout the game.

“We are honored to be working with the Las Vegas Aces as their official cancer center partner,” said Jon Bilstein, executive director of Comprehensive. “The Aces games are a great way to bring our community together, and as a sponsor, it’s a perfect way to bring messages of breast cancer awareness, prevention and hope to Southern Nevadans.

“The Las Vegas Aces are proud to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer, as well as to celebrate those who have triumphed over the disease, encourage those who are in the struggle, and remember those who have lost their battle,” said Aces Community Relations Manager Autumn Spicer.

Title game activation will include a pre-game fan tunnel comprised of patients and their families, on-court recognition during a timeout in the first half, Dew Fan Zone takeover, where patients and physicians will have courtside seats, post-game photo opportunity with the team and pink rally towels donned with Every Point Counts placed on each chair in the arena for fans. As part of the partnership, the Aces’ mascot, Buckets, held a meet-and-greet with patients at Comprehensive’s Henderson Treatment Center on July 29, helping to boost the morale of those receiving care.

The Every Points Count initiative and season-long tally will be displayed across the jumbotron during the game.

The generous support of Comprehensive Cancer Centers and the Las Vegas Aces increases the American Cancer Society’s ability to provide vital services to cancer patients and their families throughout southern Nevada,” said Angela VanBrackle, senior development manager of American Cancer Society. “Their contributions help further our mission to celebrate lives, save lives, and lead the fight to end cancer.”

Comprehensive Cancer Centers and The PENTA Building Group Build on Nevada Skin Safety Partnership, Expand to California

By | Press Release

At Core of Partnership, Comprehensive Provides Thousands of Free Sunscreen Packets to PENTA Employees and Subcontractors

Comprehensive Cancer Centers (Comprehensive) and The PENTA Building Group (PENTA) joined at a job site in Las Vegas this morning to continue a partnership and Valley-wide campaign aimed toward promoting sun safety and skin cancer awareness year-round.

Prior to beginning work for the day, PENTA employees and subcontractors attended a Safety Stand Down promoting the importance of sun safety. Wolfram Samlowski, MD, FACP, renowned medical oncologist at Comprehensive and expert in skin cancer and melanoma, spoke at the event encouraging workers to protect themselves from the sun as well as keep precautionary measures top-of-mind.

Since starting its partnership with PENTA in 2016, Comprehensive has provided tens thousands of packets of SPF 30 sunscreen to workers and has developed skin safety awareness posters that are displayed at all PENTA job-sites.

In addition to its continued work together in Nevada, effective immediately, free sunscreen packets and skin safety informational components will now be available at all PENTA’s job sites in Las Vegas, and at its sites in Southern California and Arizona.

“We want every person to leave our jobsite as healthy as they walked onto it – and that means long-term as well as just the end of the day,” said PENTA’s President, John Cannito. “That’s why partnering with Comprehensive to provide educational resources about skin cancer and sunscreen has become an important part of our program.”

“In our fourth year, this partnership with The PENTA Building Group has impacted locals where they work each day,” said Jon Bilstein, executive director of Comprehensive. “Our goal with this effort, and many others throughout the region is to keep prospective patients from ever having to visit one of our clinics with a skin-related condition.”

Earlier this year, Comprehensive added Clark County Parks and Recreation (more than 50 locations throughout Southern Nevada) and through a new collaboration with the Nevada Cancer Coalition last year, Comprehensive added the Springs Preserve, Downtown Summerlin as well as the Cadence master planned community as partners. In 2019, Comprehensive continues its partnerships with Wet’nWild Las Vegas (6th year) and the Las Vegas Aviators minor league baseball team (5th year).

According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, with more than 5 million basal and squamous cell skin cancers diagnosed each year. Approximately 850 Nevada residents will be diagnosed with melanoma in 2019 alone. Through collaborative efforts, these statistics can be combatted, and residents can mitigate the chance of ever having to endure treatment for a serious skin condition.

At PENTA, safety takes priority over all other firm initiatives, ensuring that anyone that steps foot on a jobsite is well versed in safe and secure practices. As part of this ongoing effort, the general contractor hosts regular Safety Stand Down events, focusing on a different aspect of job safety every quarter. As a result, PENTA maintains an exemplary safety rating and continues to be a thoughtful safety leader within the industry.

UNLV School of Nursing Earns National Recognition

By | Recognition

Lauren Shipton wanted something other than a career as a professional dancer on the Strip. With a passion for caretaking and physiology, nursing seemed like the ideal fit.

When Shipton, 36, joined the UNLV School of Nursing in 2017, she was attracted to its accelerated bachelor’s degree program and hands-on training at University Medical Center.

“I loved the program so much,” she said. “The teachers and administration here are all amazing and are super involved in student success.”

That success is being recognized nationally.

The UNLV program received one of the top accolades for nursing schools in the country last week, joining nine others named centers of excellence by the National League for Nursing, a leading professional organization for educators in nursing.

“It’s one of the few awards that looks at the teaching capacity of a school as a whole,” said Angela Amar, the nursing school’s dean. “It does say we’re excellent; it also says we have really good teachers, and that’s what matters.”

Amar said the school wants to expand its undergraduate program. This fall, it welcomed 216 students, a 50% increase from 2017.

By 2026, employment opportunities for registered nurses will see a 15% increase, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Shipton has one more semester remaining in the 16-month program. She hopes to get into the nursing school’s graduate program, with aspirations of becoming a trauma nurse.

“When you’re getting a master’s or doctorate in nursing, you are becoming a more advanced caretaker as well as a practitioner that can dispense medication,” she said. “You’re not just treating what the person has but also looking at their lifestyle and how they wound up in your care.”

At UNLV, Shipton said, she is able to get that hands-on experience. Just weeks after she started the program, she was already at the hospital interacting with patients — one of the perks of being a UNLV student.

“It’s terrifying but great,” she said. “We have really good ties with hospitals here.”

Encourages Southern Nevadans to review immunization status

The Southern Nevada Health District is informing individuals and the public who were at different locations listed below that they might have been exposed to a person who was confirmed to have a case of measles. Because measles can be highly contagious, the Health District is advising people who may have been exposed to review their immunization status and contact their health care providers if they are not fully immunized against measles or have not already had the disease. This measles case was reported in a visitor. There have been no additional cases reported in Clark County residents.

The measles vaccine is highly effective in preventing illness. Recommendations for measles vaccination may vary depending on a person’s age, occupation, or health status. Additional

information is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) Vaccination: What Everyone Should Know website. 

People who may have been exposed should also contact their health care providers if they develop a rash with fever or other symptoms consistent with measles within 21 days after their visit to these locations. It is recommended that anyone with symptoms contact a health care provider’s office before entering a health care facility to allow the facility to make appropriate arrangements to ensure the illness is not spread.

Symptoms can begin up to 21 days after exposure to the virus.  On average, an infected patient will develop a fever about 10 days after exposure to the virus. The fever can last two to four days and can peak as high as 103 F to 105 F. Following this, people will often also develop a runny nose, cough, and/or red eyes. On average, about 14 days after exposure the telltale rash appears; the rash can last five to six days. It begins at the hairline, moves to the face and neck, and eventually reaches the hands and feet. Measles can spread approximately four days before the rash appears and four days after.

People more likely to suffer from complications include children younger than five years of age, pregnant women, older adults, and people with compromised immune systems. When measles is spread among susceptible people, it can result in serious infections resulting in pneumonia, encephalitis, seizures, and death. Many people born before 1957 had the disease in childhood, and younger people are routinely vaccinated against it.

By | Developments, Press Release

MountainView Hospital today announced plans to expand its Emergency Room and Inpatient Rehabilitation departments to meet the continued growing demand from the Las Vegas community.

The Emergency Room expansion will include the addition of 12 new “vertical treatment” bays, and eight private exam rooms.

The expansion will bring the total ER treatment spaces at MountainView Hospital to 62 patient spaces.

Additionally, the MountainView Hospital Inpatient Rehabilitation expansion will add 18 beds to the current 36-bed unit. The 15,000-square-foot expansion will be on the fifth floor of the hospital’s 3150 Medical Office Building, directly below the current rehab department on the sixth floor. Construction on the rehab expansion also is expected to begin this fall and is expected to be complete by fall 2020.

Most recently, the ER underwent an expansion in 2018 that included adding a dedicated CT for the department and the completion of an expanded helipad to accommodate two helicopters. An expansion in 2013 of the Emergency Room doubled its capacity, allowing the hospital to be further accessible to patients and community.

MountainView Hospital is a rated by The Leapfrog Group an A safety grade (Spring 2019), as well as a Top Teaching Hospital recognition for 2018.
