Look inside!

welcome! If this issue of Knoxwise feels a little thicker than past issues, it’s because we have included our biennial report


to the community. We hope you’ll take the time to look through it to learn about our service to the community through our community benefit programs, the unreimbursed care we offer, and the

work of The Foundation for Knox Community Hospital.

One of the service lines we have expanded in 2018 is pediatrics. On page 3, our newest pediatrician, Dr. Margaret Somple, offers advice on what to expect at your child’s annual well check and why it’s an important appointment to keep. Another growing area we are excited to tell you about is our advanced practice provider program. We employ over 21 advanced practice providers from nurse practitioners to physician assistants who help provide care in over a dozen different specialties including cardiology, urgent care, vascular medicine, family practice, internal medicine, oncology,

otolaryngology, hospital medicine, podiatry, pulmonology, surgery and endocrinology. Learn more about who they are and what they do on pages 4 and 5. With the holiday season upon us, consider giving the gift of life at one of KCH’s blood drives. The Red Cross, the nation’s largest supplier of blood and blood products, estimates that every two seconds someone needs blood. To learn more about eligibility requirements for donating, see page 6. Many of us will be busy this month making our holiday shopping list for family and friends. While you may be tempted to buy that trendy toy for the child on your list, make sure it is safe and age appropriate first. See page 8 for tips on choosing safe toys and gifts. Although it’s cold outside, that’s no excuse to be sedentary. With the appropriate cold-weather gear, and the right attitude, you can enjoy the snowy season. Page 7 offers some ideas for keeping your family active during these chillier months.

With the winter months ahead, parents can expect to see an increase in common childhood illnesses like sore throats, coughs and ear aches. It’s a myth that kids catch colds from being outside in the cold. Colds are spread by germs that are shared when kids are in close, confined spaces (like school classrooms, daycares and preschools) and they sneeze or cough and don’t cover their mouths. So, what can you do to help your child stay healthy? According to KCH pediatrician, Dr. Margaret Somple, keeping your kids up-to-date on well visits, flu shots and vaccinations are an ESSENTIAL first step.

By seeing a child when he or she is well, we have the opportunity to create a relationship that builds trust and confidence.” – Dr. Margaret Somple

“Well-child visits or check-ups are important to keep your child in good health,” she said. “By seeing a child when he or she is well, we have the opportunity to create a relationship that builds trust and confidence.” The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends healthy children visit a physician at the following ages: • 2 to 4 days old

• 12 months

• By 1 month

• 15 months

• 2 months

• 18 months

• 4 months

• 24 months

• 6 months

• 30 months

• 9 months

• Yearly visits from

3 years of age on

To make an appointment with one of KCH’s pediatricians, call 740.399.3745.

Dr. Somple says in addition to doing a patient history, physical exam and administering immunizations, she talks to parents about their child’s growth and development, eating and sleeping habits, social behaviors, developmental milestones and any concerns they have. All healthy, normal children in the U.S. should receive vaccines to prevent the following illnesses:

Dr. Margaret Somple

• Diphtheria

• Haemophilus type B Influenza

• Whooping cough

• Human papilloma virus

• Tetanus

• Hepatitis B

• Polio

• Chicken pox

• Measles

• Pneumococcal disease

• Mumps

• Haemophilus Influenza type B

• Rubella

• Meningococcal Meningitis

• Hepatitis A • Rotavirus

(age 11 and older) • Influenza (6 months and

older during flu season)

Advanced practice providers meet growing demand for access to care When you call your doctor’s office for an appointment, you may be told your quickest option for care is to see the office nurse practitioner (NP), certified nurse midwife (CNM) or physician assistant (PA). These advanced practice providers (APPs) work in partnership with physicians to help manage the care of patients. APPs are highly-skilled clinicians who have completed advanced education and training that allows them to manage medical issues and prescribe medications as well as teach and mentor nursing students and perform research. APPs have a minimum of a master’s degree and are licensed by the state they practice in. Nationally, the use of APPs is a growing trend in both physician’s offices and hospitals because they can expand the care offered to patients and increase access to care. Offices that utilize APPs report shorter wait times for an appointment and high patient satisfaction ratings.

Meet the KCH team of APPs:

Amanda M. Filler, CNP Pulmonology 1330 Coshocton Road Mount Vernon 740.399.3814

Although APPs have much in common, there are distinctive differences between the many different kinds. Here is a description of what each provider does and the education they received: Nurse Practitioner (NP), Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP), Advanced Practice Nurse (APN): Registered nurse (RN) with additional education and training in a specialty area. Nurse practitioners have a master’s degree in nursing and board certification in their specialty. Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM): CNMs are advanced practice nurses who specializes in women’s reproductive health and childbirth. In addition to deliveries, they perform annual exams, counsel patients and write prescriptions. A master’s or doctorate degree is required. All Certified Nurse Midwives have passed a national certification exam from the American Midwifery Certification Board.

Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS): Clinical nurse specialists provide an advanced level of care in hospitals and other clinical locations. They strive to improve healthcare through evidencebased practices at the individual patient and organizational levels. Clinical nurse specialists are registered nurses with a graduate degree in nursing at the master’s or doctorate level. Physician Assistant (PA): A master’s educated medical professional who diagnoses illnesses, prescribes medications,

orders tests, performs procedures and manages a patient’s care and treatment. PAs receive education in general medicine, as opposed to NPs who follow a nursing model. PAs must already have a bachelor’s degree before being accepted into a PA program. PA programs take about 27 months to complete and include classroom instruction and over 2,000 hours of clinical rotations.

through blood OF LIFE donation

According to the American Red Cross, every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. requires a blood transfusion for things like surgery, illness, cancer treatment and traumatic injury. Blood products are comprised of red and white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Depending on the need, patients may receive whole blood or just the specific components of the blood that are needed to treat their condition. Unlike some things that can be manufactured or grown in a lab, blood products cannot be reproduced; so the importance of human donors and having a healthy blood supply on hand can be the difference between life and death for hospitalized patients.

To donate, you must be in good health and feeling well, at least 16 years old and weigh a minimum of 110 lbs. If you are taking certain medications, have low iron or have traveled outside the U.S. recently you may be asked to defer your donation. For more information on eligibility requirements or where to find a local blood drive, visit redcrossblood.org

ABCs of heart disease


Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States. Your lifestyle is not only your best defense against heart disease, it’s also your responsibility. Start with the ABCs of a healthy heart.


Aim for a healthy weight by maintaining a balanced diet, controlling excess calorie intake and exercising regularly. Obesity places you at risk for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and insulin resistance, a precursor of type 2 diabetes — the very factors that heighten your risk of cardiovascular disease.


Be physically active every day. Exercise for at least 30 minutes, five or more days a week. This can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and keep your weight at a healthy level. If you’re doing nothing now, start out slow. Even ten minutes at a time may offer some health benefits.


Choose foods wisely. Eat nutrientrich foods — which have vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients but are lower in calories — over highly-processed, nutrientpoor foods. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole-grain and high-fiber foods, fish, lean protein and fat-free or low-fat dairy products is the key.

IDEAS TO HELP YOU STAY ACTIVE DURING WINTER Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you should hole up by the fire with a big mug of hot chocolate. With the right attitude and the right gear, you can maintain an active lifestyle all the way through the winter season. Have you always wanted to try skiing or snowboarding? Ohio and our neighboring states offer many family-friendly ski resorts where you can rent equipment and take a lesson. If downhill skiing isn’t your style, ice skating, hiking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing also offer great opportunities to commune with nature while also getting some exercise. And, better yet, the whole family can participate.

After a big snowstorm can be the best time to drag out the sleds and find a sledding hill to take a run down in the fresh, powdery snow. Just be careful to climb back up the hill out of the way of oncoming sledding traffic. As with all outdoor sport activities, it’s important to wear the appropriate protective gear – think helmets and goggles for downhill skiing – as well as dressing appropriately for the weather conditions with hats, scarves, gloves, coats and boots. Wear layers you can peel off if you become warm while active.

If being outside in the cold isn’t your thing, look for other indoor opportunities to walk. For the average person, a one-hour walk at a brisk pace can burn 300 calories. Have you considered joining a gym? The Center for Rehabilitation and Wellness offers low-impact exercise classes like yoga, Tai Chi and aquatic classes in addition to treadmills and weight machines. Remember, winter doesn’t have to be the season of hibernation. Everyone has different likes and tolerance for the cold, pick an activity or mix it up, but whatever you do – just stay active!

Selecting safe toys this holiday season As the holiday season approaches, kids are making their wish lists and they may include items that aren’t safe for a child their age. Before you go out and make those holiday toy purchases, here are some things to consider: • Kids under age 3 like to put things in their mouths.

Follow age and safety recommendations on toy labeling – they are there for a reason. Toys that have small parts could pose a choking hazard and shouldn’t be given to young children. Toys that are recommended for older kids may require a certain skill set or dexterity. • Buy well-made toys. Avoid toys that look like they

will break easily if thrown or dropped. • Crayons and markers should be labeled nontoxic.

• Avoid toys with heating elements, sharp edges

or that shoot projectiles. • When buying bikes, skateboards, skates and scooters,

always make sure your child has a properly fitted helmet to wear while riding. • Older kids should be taught to keep their toys out

of the reach of younger siblings. • Explain to kids how a toy works and supervise

Choose paint and art sets labeled with ASTM D-4236 which means they have met the standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials.

Dear friends and neighbors, I am pleased to provide you with the Knox Community Hospital Community Report for 2016-2017.
