Vermont could be guide on health care

RUTLAND, Vt. — Kirk Dufty doesn’t have to rely on patients’ hazy memories or take their word for what drugs they’re taking when they show up at his emergency room.

In minutes, the doctor can find out whether a man with chest pains has filled the prescription for the anti-clotting medication he’s supposed to take or whether a woman complaining about a stomachache is really trying to get more narcotics to feed her drug habit.

The information is available at Rutland Regional Medical Center through a new computerized records system installed as part of the broader health care overhaul Vermont passed in 2006. It helps Dufty do exactly what the overhaul was designed to do statewide: cut costs and provide better medical care to patients.

Nurses ponder new role in prevention

NORTHFIELD – Nurses in rural areas say Vermont stands on the cusp of a health care revolution that could change the way small hospitals serve their patients and communities.

The focus on traditional care – procedures for treatment — is shifting to a new emphasis on prevention.

A panel of nurse executives from “critical access” hospitals in Vermont and New Hampshire met with students at Norwich University on Tuesday to discuss a coming “transformation” in the profession. Reforms afoot at both the federal and state levels, nurses said, will dramatically shift the role nurses and hospitals play in patient care.

Georgia clinic gives patients options

It’s all about the “convenience factor” said Jonathan Billings, director of Planning and Community Services at Northwestern Medical Center, of the center’s new walk-in clinic opened on Ethan Allen Highway in Georgia. Billings said the clinic’s early morning and evening hours, and it’s location, make it possible for more people to use the facility in this growing, commuter-heavy area. The clinic serves surrounding towns including, Georgia, Fairfax, and Milton, as well as people who are passing through.

Nurse program in jeopardy

Gov. Douglas does not appreciate the detrimental impact of his budget proposal. He proposes terminating the Vermont Interactive Television. This program provides hundreds of nursing students throughout the state with access to distance learning opportunities that train them to become LPNs and RNs in Vermont. These programs are administered through the University of Vermont, Castleton State College, Lyndon State College and Vermont Technical College, who have the national credentials to award degrees.

Future of Fluoride in Burlington’s Drinking Water Unclear

A resolution to cut fluoride out of Burlington’s public drinking water supply was passed Monday night in a 3-2 vote by the Burlington Board of Health.  The final decision now rests with the Burlington City Council.

“Everybody believes fluoride is a good thing.  I’m not saying it’s a bad thing,” Allen Soucie, a registered nurse and member of the Board of Health, said.

The practice started in 1954 in an effort to prevent tooth decay.  Soucie said fluoride doesn’t need to be in the water because it’s already in foods we eat every day.

“This has to do with treating me as a person, so I don’t have dental cavaties,” Soucie said.  “I don’t want to be treated by the city of Burlington. I want pure water.”

Soucie’s concern is the chemical’s health risks.  New studies show certain individuals are at increased risk from fluoride’s toxic affects on people with diabetes, infants, kidney patients, and those with thyroid problems.  In fact, the National Kidney Foundation urges against patients drinking any fluoridated water at all.
