BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG / WECP) – As we say goodbye to the holidays, we say hello to an increase in COVID cases in Bay County.

In the most updated report, the Bay County Department of Health has reported an additional 667 cases of COVID-19 among residents in the past seven days and a total of 1,353 cases in the past 14 days. With the increase in cases comes the need for more testing.

“I have seen at least a 30% to 40% increase in the number of people who show symptoms of COVID,” said Richard Ellis, a doctor at Healthpoint Medical Group, DO.

Ellis said about 60% of those tested came back positive for COVID. Most have already followed COVID protocols.

“A lot of people I see have been vaccinated, but they’re still getting COVID,” Ellis said.

The problem they are currently facing is the lack of rapid COVID tests available.

“We’re down to probably less than 20 tests now and so once we get to that point we just have to wait until we have new tests so that we can test people,” Ellis said.

And when people can’t take tests at health facilities, they opt for home tests.

“We get calls at least 15 times a day and probably five to six people come and stop to see what we have in stock,” said Lauren Parker, pharmacist at RX Express Pharmacy.

And Parker said at the moment, they don’t have any in stock.

“We received a box of 100 tests at the start of the week and we missed some on the same day,” Parker said.

We are told that many, if not most, health facilities in the region are also weak or even short of COVID tests.

“The problem is, they’re out of stock, so your supply will often be the limiting factor for you to test,” Ellis said.

Due to the lack of availability of tests, Parker said they had to pay double for shipments.

“Everyone is doing their best to get them in. We try every day, ”Parker said.

And trying every day is what medical professionals say you should do to find a COVID test. But if you can’t find a COVID test right away, Ellis said here’s what to do.

“If you’re exposed to someone who has COVID, who tests positive for COVID, you should assume you have COVID, and if you don’t have any significant medical illnesses, you will often need to stay home and get some rest. , hydrate and take care of yourself, ”said Ellis.

Ellis said he expects this increase to continue for at least a month and urges people to continue following CDC guidelines.

PESHAWAR: The Covid-19 epidemic prompted the government to modernize health facilities, especially intensive care services that were only available in a few hospitals before the pandemic hit the province.

The Peshawar Institute of Cardiology (PIC), whose construction began in 2005 but was inaugurated to house patients with Covid-19, now treats heart patients.

“Before the province was affected by the virus, we had oxygen factories in four teaching hospitals. Now, there are 30 health establishments where the oxygen installation exists. For Covid-19, the health department has improved all the services, in particular the intensive care and high dependency units which are now used for the treatment of non-Covid-19 patients ”, Dr Ikramullah Khan, additional general manager of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Services, Dawn said.

He said there were now well-equipped intensive care units in Malakand, Dir Upper and Lower, Haripur, Dera Ismail Khan, Lakki Marwat, Karak and Swat, where serious patients were being treated. He said such district-level developments had only happened because of the pandemic, but these services were helping local patients, who were previously taken to hospitals in Peshawar for treatment.

Dr Ikram said they had focused on providing oxygen to healthcare facilities due to more infections early on. “We supplied oxygen to hospitals from the main warehouse via cylinders,” he added.

The number of intensive care beds in the province has reached 6,000, up from just 1,000 before the virus arrived, as there was a desperate need to manage critically ill Covid-19 patients.

Likewise, the number of ventilators in the province has almost tripled as a result of which the treatment rate of critically ill patients has improved, he said. “When Covid-19 broke out, we only had 70 ventilators. The number is now over 500, ”he said.

“All of these facilities have been upgraded due to the pandemic, but they are now used for general patients. In more than 50 hospitals across the province, we have implemented infection control measures to protect healthcare professionals and patients from infection, ”said Dr. Ikram.

He said most of the staff were trained in infection control measures and looked after the hospitals where they worked. Likewise, Covid-19 has proven to be a blessing in disguise for the health department to develop testing facilities.

In early 2020, the public health reference laboratory at Khyber Medical University began Covid-19 testing by processing 40 samples per day, but within a short period of time the department had set up facilities for PCR Covid-19 in 13 hospitals to ensure suspicious patients are diagnosed. quickly.

Not only the public sector, but in the private sector, five Covid-19 labs have been cleared after inspection by the ministry to ensure people are getting tested all over the province.

Dr Ikram said the Peshawar Heart Institute was completed but not functional due to the lack of facilities there. “With the onset of the pandemic, we equipped the building to be used for coronavirus patients as the number of patients continued to increase,” he said. However, the number of patients has declined and no patient has been admitted, he added.

He said the PIC was finally inaugurated by the Prime Minister in December of last year, where heart patients were treated for free. The 295-bed PIC offers cardiac surgery for both pediatric and adult patients.

The same is true of the Institute of Hepatology, whose building was completed but was not made functional. It has been made functional to take care of Covid-19 patients. The institute will soon start providing basic services to patients with hepatitis.

DAYTON, Ohio (December 6, 2021) – Three Premier Health establishments have obtained accreditation from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in echocardiography in the field of adult transthoracic.

Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Miami Valley Hospital South in Centerville, and the Premier Cardiovascular Institute in Beavercreek recently received three-year accreditation from the IAC.

“ACI accreditation is a seal of approval that patients can count on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a commitment to continuous improvement,” said Muhanad Al-Zubaidi, MD, medical director of the First Cardiovascular Institute. “This achievement demonstrates Premier Health’s commitment to providing quality echocardiography patient care.

Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious cardiovascular disease using high frequency sound waves.

“There are many factors that contribute to an accurate echocardiogram-based diagnosis,” said Mike McKewen, director of cardiovascular and respiratory services at Miami Valley Hospital. “The education and experience of the sonographer performing the procedure, the type of equipment used, and the quality assessment parameters that each facility is required to measure – all contribute to a positive patient outcome. ”

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. According to the American Heart Association, more than 2,150 Americans die from cardiovascular disease every day, which is about one every 40 seconds.

Accreditation by the IAC means that the Miami Valley Hospital, Miami Valley Hospital South, and the Premier Cardiovascular Institute of Beavercreek have gone through an intensive application and review process and have been found to comply with the published standards, demonstrating a commitment to quality echocardiographic patient care. . Comprised of a detailed self-assessment, followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process assesses both critical operational and technical components of the candidate facility, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports.

The Association of Private Health Facilities of Ghana calls on the government to send health professionals to its members.

Speaking at 1st annual general meeting Ashanti regional president Francis Fosu fears that insufficient human resources militate against operations in the sector.

“The government should view private health facilities as one of the places that help shape the health of the people.

“When these students complete their program, the government signals them to the hunches of the government and CHAG.

Mr. Fosu is again asking for a rate that reflects the real cost of their services.

He finds that the subsidies on the cost of their services are not sustainable enough.

“The price they give us is woefully inadequate. We go to the market to buy Artemether Lumefantrine for 6 cedis but the NHIA will give us 2 cedis 50 pesewas just look at the gap. They should give us the actual prices which will reflect the market prices we use to render services.

“The government doesn’t pay our workers, we do everything ourselves. We cannot be made to pay the same rate as government institutions, ”he recommended.

Association President Samuel Okyere Donkor advised members to submit complaints promptly to ensure prompt processing of complaints.

“Some of our facilities do not submit their claims on time. Institutions have three months to submit their requests, but you will find that most go beyond, ”he said.

The theme of the meeting was: Promoting Quality Health Care Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic. The role of private health facilities.
