Altus Gives Scholarship Winners 2022

Altus Gives Scholarship Winners 2022

At Altus Emergency we are delighted to announce the Altus Gives Scholarship Winners 2022! Back in February 2022, we launched our Altus Gives Scholarship Winners 2022 for each of our four locations.  This initiative was done through the Altus Gives program, which was established to help give back to our local businesses and individuals. 

Each location held an Altus Gives Scholarship awards program awarding a total of $2000 in scholarships as a one-time payment.  The awards were given to each of the recipients to pursue a career in healthcare.  

This award was given to each of the recipients as a check to be exclusively used for expenses related to college such as tuition, fees, books, school supplies, and board.  Individuals could apply through the application form directly from our website up until the March 31st, 2022 deadline.  Then, the winners were selected in April 2022 by a review panel appointed by the management of Altus Emergency Centers.

After having been selected, we coordinated with each of the students’ schools to deliver them the good news.  This is how they reacted to having won the Altus Gives Scholarship Winners 2022.  Get to know each of the Altus Gives Scholarship Winners of 2022!

American Red Cross Blood Crisis – How to Help Save Lives

American Red Cross Blood Crisis – How to Help Save Lives

A few days ago, the American Red Cross announced it was facing its worst blood shortage in over a decade. The drop in donations led the organization to declare its first-ever blood crisis in our country.

Blood is needed to save the lives of thousands of patients each year. Unfortunately, blood donor turnout has declined in the last couple of years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Red Cross reported a 10% reduction in overall donors since the pandemic started.

In addition, the recent surge due to Omicron created even more staffing and donor challenges, with many medical professionals and donors falling ill. These additional challenges mean many blood drives had to be canceled, causing further shortages.

Why Blood Donations Matter

Blood is needed to treat and save the lives of thousands of patients every year. Unfortunately, with the current shortage, it means doctors in hospitals and Emergency Rooms across the nation must make tough decisions. Doctors now have to decide who receives a blood transfusion now and who will have to wait until more blood becomes available. Still, for many patients, the blood may not arrive in time.

Doctors can sometimes hold off the need for a blood transfusion, but it’s a matter of life and death in other cases. Hospitals and emergency rooms have difficulty treating accident victims, patients with blood disorders like sickle cell disease, cancer patients, and critically ill patients because of the shortage.

That is why the Red Cross needs our help in increasing the number of donors. Remember, labs can’t manufacture blood and platelets; the blood available to hospitals and ER’s all comes from donors.

Blood Transfusion Statistics in America

According to the American Red Cross, this is how much blood transfusions and donations are needed:

  • Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. requires blood and or platelets
  • One donation can help save up to three lives
  • Every day patients in the U.S. need approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells
  • The average red blood cell transfusion is around three units
  • Nearly 5,000 units of platelets and 6.500 units of plasma are needed daily
  • About 16 million blood components are transfused each year in America
  • Between 90,000 and 100,000 Americans have sickle cell disease, and close to 1,000 babies are born with the illness every year. Many sickle cell patients require blood transfusions throughout their lives
  • One car crash victim may need as many as 100 units of blood
  • The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O

Although Type 0 blood is the most in-demand, donations from all other blood types are just as welcomed.

How You Can Help End the Blood Crisis in America

Altus Emergency Centers is joining efforts with the American Red Cross to promote more blood drives in our communities and help end the blood crisis.

Please join us at the Altus location nearest to you to donate blood. Your act of generosity could be the life-saving miracle a family is praying for.

Texas Parks to Visit and Recreation Safety Tips to Enjoy

Texas Parks to Visit and Recreation Safety Tips to Enjoy

Let’s Learn About Park and Recreation Safety

In celebration of National Parks and Recreation Month, Altus Emergency Centers is challenging the community to improve their quality of life by going out and enjoying one of the many parks around their city. The best way to plan out a great time outdoors is to first learn about park and recreation safety.

Spending time outdoors promotes a healthy vibrant community life, whether it’s summer camp, a sports league, exploring a trail, playing chess in the park, or organizing play dates for the kids; parks are the perfect gathering place.

To ensure you experience a safe outing, we have prepared a handy list of Park and Recreation Safety Tips to keep in mind!

 

National Parks & Recreation Month: Keeping it Safe and Fun

Playground Safety Tips.

The most common summer activity is a trip to the playground.  The following park and recreation safety tips are important to keep in mind during your visit the the playground:

  • Wear Proper Shoes: Make sure your kids footwear is adequate to play and run, never let your child play barefoot at the park as they may be bitten by insects, step on a thorn or small rock or burn their feet on hot surfaces.
  • Watch Out for Hot Surfaces: During summer, slides, swings, monkey bars, merry-go-rounds and even picnic tables may become overheated by the sun, so, always check the surface temperature.
  • Stranger Danger: Teach your children not to speak or follow adult strangers, and to immediately run towards you or someone they know to report the incident. While not everyone has bad intentions, it is best for kids not to engage in conversation with adults they do not know.

Hiking Safety Tips

Hiking is an excellent acivity for all ages.  You may choose the pace and distance that you wish to hike and enjoy the scenery during your voyage. The following park and recreation safety tips are important to keep in mind when planning on your next hiking quest:

  • Tell People: Always inform friends and family the route you’ll be taking and how long you expect to be gone; if possible always travel with a companion.
  • Carry ID: Make sure to carry some sort of ID that includes your name, phone number, address, pertinent medical information, and emergency contact information.
  • Carry a Whistle: This will help scare wild animals or signal for help should you be injured.
  • Plan Your Route: Become familiarized with a trail before you head out, do not venture into unknown hiking trails by yourself.

Camping Safety Tips

If you’re a woodsy person at heart, camping is wonderful to replenish the mind and spirit.  It is particulary important to heed the park and recreation safety tips while on your home in the wilderness away from home.

  • Stay Away from Wildlife: Clearly one of the joys of camping is to commune with nature, but, it is better to enjoy the wildlife from afar. If you do come face to face with a wild animal, regardless of if it’s a bear or a squirrel do your best not to disturb them, this will keep you out of trouble and possibly a visit to one of our centers.
  • Respect the Fire Rules of the Park: Most parks that offer camping sites have clear rules when it comes to camp fires, make sure you find out what they are and that you respect them. Unattended or poorly managed campfires have been known to start wildfires that can destroy thousands of acres, kill wildlife, and endanger human population as well.
  • Store Food Carefully: Again, check the food regulations with park officials before you set out on your camping trip. Food should be properly stored for several reasons, preventing food poisoning while camping and, avoiding a close encounter with dangerous animals.

General Park Safety Tips

No matter which outdoor activity is your cup of tea, the following are universal park and recreation safety tips to always take into consideration:

  • Wear Sunscreen: We cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough, make sure to reapply every couple of hours to avoid getting sunburned.
  • Stay Hydrated: Carry a water bottle, and, if you plan to go for a hike, make sure to take snacks along with you.
  • Check for Ticks: Lyme Disease is a serious illness, it can be easily treated when diagnosed early, but, if left untreated, it can linger for years and cause serious side effects. After a day at the park, make sure you check yourself and your family for ticks.
  • Watch Out for Poisonous Plants: Learn to identify the different poisonous plants that grow in these parts, poison ivy and poison sumac can both cause nasty rashes just by touching them, but poison hemlock can actually kill you. If you come in contact with any of these plants head to the nearest Altus Emergency Center for treatment, if possible take a picture of the plant so we can identify it and administer the proper treatment.

Flood Safety Tips

Flood Safety Tips.  Protect Yourself During and After a Flood.

Water is a source of life; however, during a flood that same water can be deadly. According to the CDC’s website, more deaths occur due to flooding than any other storm-related hazard.

Mother nature is unpredictable, but there are ways to protect yourself and those you love during a flood.

What to Do During a Flood?

The real danger starts once the floodwaters have risen. To protect yourself, please remember:

  • Not to drive through flooded areas or standing water. You don’t know how deep the water is and it’s important to realize you could lose control of your vehicle in as little as 6-inches of water
  • Don’t use flood water for bathing, brushing your teeth, washing or prepare foods, or wash dishes. Under no circumstance should drink flood water as it is most likely contaminated
  • Only drink water from the faucet after your local authorities have said it is safe to drink.
  • During a water advisory, you should only drink bottled. For cooking only use bottled, boiled, or treated water
  • If any of your food supplies come in contact with floodwaters, don’t eat them
  • If you are using a generator, make sure to place them at least 20-feet from any windows, doors, or vents to prevent accidental carbon monoxide poisoning

Flood Cleanup Tips

The cleanup process is perhaps where most flood-related injuries and illnesses occur. Infectious organisms might have contaminated floodwaters. The most common microorganisms found in standing floodwaters are:

  • coli
  • Salmonella
  • Shigella
  • Hepatitis A virus
  • Agents of typhoid
  • Paratyphoid
  • Tetanus

Floodwaters could also be contaminated by hazardous agricultural, industrial, or petrochemical components.

To help keep you safe, the staff of Altus Emergency Centers in Lumberton has several health-related tips to share with you:

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Keep Children Safe

During the cleanup process, keep a close eye on your kids.

  • Don’t let them play in or near floodwater
  • Make sure they wash their hands often or at the very least before each meal
  • Disinfect toys by soaking them in a solution made from 2-ounces of bleach per 1-gallon of water, let toys air dry after you have disinfected them
  • Throw away any stuffed or soft toys that may have been contaminated by the floodwaters

Food Safety

If you have power or are using a generator to power your appliances, then keep your refrigerator as close to 41°F as possible. If your electricity is out, you should know that your refrigerator will only keep your food cold for four or six hours if left unopened.

Additionally:

  • Without power, your freezer will keep your food frozen for one day or two days maximum if left unopened
  • Canned foods are safe to eat. However, you should remove the labels and wash the sealed cans with either warm water and detergent or a mixture made from 1-tablespoon of bleach per 1-gallon of water. You can relabel the cans after washing them
  • Throw away any canned food if you notice the can is rusted, pitted, bulging, or leaking
  • Wash your Tupperware and other kitchen items in a solution of bleach and water to disinfect them
  • Throw away any food that might have come in contact with floodwater unless it comes in a sealed can

Water Safety

  • Follow the guidelines issue by local authorities concerning the use of tap water
  • Boil water for at least one minute to kill any bacteria
  • You can disinfect water by adding 1/8 of unscented household bleach to one gallon of water. You will need to let it rest for at least 30 minutes before you can use it
  • You can also add purifying-tablets to water instead of boiling or disinfecting it
  • If you have infants, don’t feed them formula made with treated water. Try using canned baby formula instead

Beware of Mold

  • Protect yourself from mold by wearing a face mask whenever you are cleaning an area where mold has grown
  • Open windows and doors or use fans to let the air help dry out your home or office. You should try to have all the surfaces cleaned within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold from growing
  • If you encounter mold in your home, try cleaning it with a mixture of 1 cup of bleach per 1-gallon of water.
  • You should always wear gloves when cleaning moldy areas or working with bleach

Protect Yourself from Tetanus

Tetanus can enter the bloodstream through an open wound, even small ones. Tetanus can cause a condition known as lockjaw. This condition causes painful muscle tightening. When it attacks the jaw muscles, you won’t be able to open your mouth or swallow.

If you experience lockjaw, you should come to the Altus Emergency Center in Lumberton as soon as possible.

Treating Wounds

If you cut yourself while cleaning up after a flood, you need to wash the wound with soap and clean water thoroughly. Apply an antibiotic cream to the injury.

If you have not had a tetanus shot in the last ten years, you will need to get one. Additionally, if your wound is deep, severe, or becomes infected, you need to seek immediate medical attention.
