Honoring First Responders – Altus Gives

FIRST RESPONDERS:
First to Arrive, Last to Leave

Thank You to all Brave Men and Women Who Rush to Our Aid When We Need it the Most: Our Local First Responders

No one ever plans or wants to be in an emergency.  Most of us live within our daily hustle and bustle aloof to the potential dangers that surround us. 

Very few people actually stop and think, “What would happen if?”  The reality is that emergencies do happen but when they do, we know that someone will come to the rescue.  Why do we know this?  We feel safe because time and time again, they have proved themselves through noble acts of service. 

First responders are the friendliest, most welcome faces we greet during an emergency.

A Special Calling

Real Life Super Heroes

It takes a special person to be a first responder.

Let’s face it, not everyone can be a super hero.  A first responder embodies heroic traits without expecting fame or fortune.  They are genuine, selfless individuals working hard to help save a lives.

  • To be the first to arrive and the last to leave.

  • To face their fears in order to accomplish a mission.

  • To put themselves in the front line when others run.

  • To believe in humanity when others have lost hope.

  • To sacrifice their own safety in order to save others.

We look up to them as children, we respect them as adults, we honor our Lumberton Community First Responders.

Thank You to All First Responders from Altus Gives!

Thank You For Keeping Us Safe & Healthy!

During the month of June 2017, Altus Gives Honors all of our First Responders, among those: Lumberton Fire/EMS, Lumberton Police Department, Acadian EMS and Republic EMS.

Let’s rally around them, showing our love and support to our local Lumberton first responders. We appreciate all that you do for our community and everything that you do for us!

We are so grateful to work along side some of the most selfless and caring individuals in our community. We want to show a small token of appreciation to some of our local first responders.

Better Ways to Clean Children’s Ears – Emergency Medical Services for Children Day 2017

ALTUS SAFETY TIPS:
Better Ways to Clean Children's Ears

We’ve All Heard About the Dangers of Cotton Swabs.  What are Better Ways to Clean Children’s Ears?

Over the years there has been a lot of debate centered around what are better ways to clean children’s ears.   In honor of Emergency Medical Services for Children Day 2017 (EMSC), we think it is vital to shed light on this subject.  Despite the amount of information available these days, most parents still do not know that a human’s ear canal is designed to be self-cleaning.

The ear canal is lined by skin that slowly moves out of the canal pushing the wax out towards the pinna or outer ear where it will become dry and flaky and eventually fall out on its own.

Having self-cleaning ear canals is great, but as every parent knows, children have an uncanny ability to get dirt and small objects into tiny orifices, so, these must be checked and cleaned regularly. If when inspecting your child, you find that they have inserted a foreign object into their ear canal, it is crucial that you do not attempt to remove it on your own, as you may cause serious damage to your child, instead head out to the nearest Altus Emergency Center to have one of our expert ER doctors and nurses safely remove the object.  Below we list five better ways to clean children’s ears.

There Are Better Ways to Clean Children's Ears

Time to Move Away from the Cotton Swab Tradition and say, “Hello” to Altus Safety Tips!

Pediatricians have been warning parents about the hazards of using cotton swabs to clean a child’s ear for some time now, which prompts the question of which are the best ways to clean children’s ears on a routine basis.  We want to keep them safe!

The following are Five Alternative Ways to clean your child’s ears:

  • #1 Wash Cloth: Since only the outer ear needs to be cleaned, the safest way to do it is with the use of a soft wash cloth. This is best done after a bath or shower as the moisture will soften the wax and any dirt that may have lodged itself in the outer ear. Be gentle and never insert your finger or other object into the ear canal.

  • #2 Mineral Oil: If you suspect your child’s ear wax has hardened or that they may have a buildup, you can use a few drops of mineral oil or olive oil. The oil should be the warmed up to skin temperature, have your child lie on their side and use a dropper to apply the oil to affected ear. After a few minutes, have your child sit up and let the oil and buildup wax drip out.

  • #3 Hydrogen Peroxide: The use of hydrogen peroxide mixed with water in small children is not advisable, it may cause dizziness and vertigo not to mention it may scare and even traumatize the child.

  • #4 Ear Drops: For school age children, the use of over the counter ear drops like Debrox can be useful, but you should consult your pediatrician before applying them.

  • #5 Candling: This method is not recommended for several reasons. First there is a risk of burn injury to the child, inserting the candle in the ear canal may cause damage to the ear drum, not to mention there is no real evidence that candling has any real effect in ear wax removal.

Keep an Eye Out for Any Signs of Danger

Know the Signs – When to Visit an ER

The Following are Three Signs of Alert

  • #1 – If you notice any blood or pus oozing from your child’s ear,

  • #2 – If they are experiencing pain or discomfort in one of both ears,

  • #3 – Or have any change in their hearing.

Hearing is one of the five senses.  The fact that a child’s ears are fragile and are in development must be taken seriously.  You can prevent permanent damage.  If they experience any of the three symptoms listed above, visit the nearest Altus Emergency Center for a thorough evaluation and treatment.

Lumberton ER Earns Perfect Report

Lumberton ER Earns Perfect Report Following State Inspection

LUMBERTON, TX (MARCH 2016) — No deficiencies were found recently during a surprise inspection of Altus Emergency Center Lumberton by the Department of State Health Services.
A state health surveyor arrived at the facility March 16 to begin a two-day inspection, which resulted in a perfect report. Surveyors check to ensure facilities are compliant with state regulations, and that all policies and procedures are followed.

“We have an exemplary team that does superior work providing its community with high-quality healthcare on a daily basis,”

said Jason Bedair, Vice President of Clinical Services.

“The surveyor was very impressed with our facility and its staff.”

Billing; Melissa Thompson, RN; and Lauren Schopper, Registrar.
The twelve staff members worked to gut the home of Larry and Joyce, who had lived in their house for 51 years before it took in more than three feet of water earlier this month. They are just one of more than 200 homes that will need the organization’s assistance in the coming days. While they have had several people and groups volunteer to work with them, they are in need of many more.  An estimated 2,000 homes were damaged or destroyed in Orange and Newton counties earlier this month by historic flooding that resulted in a federal disaster
declaration for three counties. Areas like Deweyville sustained roof-high water to schools and homes in the worst Sabine River flood since the late 1880s.
Should you want to volunteer as an individual, family, or group (participants must be at least 14 years old), please call (409) 238-4926.
