Dr. Suchmor Thomas, Altus Lake Jackson ER Medical Director

Introducing Dr. Suchmor Thomas, MD. 

Lake Jackson’s New Medical Director

We are pleased to introduce Dr. Suchmor Thomas, MD, the new medical director for our Lake Jackson center.

For years, Altus Emergency Center Lake Jackson has been an intricate part of the community. We continuously try to improve the lives of the members of our community by partnering with various organizations.

Our goal has always been to provide the best care for our patients and to help advance our tightknit community.

We feel our recent changes in how we staff our Emergency Centers speaks volumes as to how much we want to make a difference in the lives of patients.

Direct Staffing

A few months back, Altus Emergency Centers made the bold decision to directly hire all the doctors that would work in our ER centers.

There were several reasons for this decision:

We understood that many of you had billing issues with the previous group. We now have more control from the billing. Our billing team located in the facility will now be taking care of the physicians’ bills.

We have better control to select the physicians we want working at the facility giving us more access to pick the best in the area.

We believe we have successfully accomplished all these goals. There are, however, a few issues we are dealing with, mostly regarding billing for services before our direct staffing took place.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Patient Advocate Can Help With Your Billing Issues

If you have questions regarding billing, especially for physician fees for services in our ER before June of 2019, please contact our Patient Advocate.

Our team of experts will work tirelessly to lower the amount of your bill. Additionally, they can help create a personalized payment plan that adjusts to your financial needs.

The Importance of Having an Experienced ER Doctor in Charge

Dr. Suchmor Thomas has vast experience working in the ER, which is one of the reasons we chose him for the position of medical director.

Working as an ER doctor requires much preparation, nerves of steel, as well as passion and dedication. ER physicians need to be able to make split-second life-saving decisions; this requires not only knowledge, excellent communication skills, and confidence.

All physicians working in our emergency centers have these qualities, which is why we knew our medical director must also have them. The choice to hire Dr. Thomas as our medical director came as a result of his preparation, excellent performance, and the respect he has earned from his peers in our ER.

We stole a few precious minutes out of the busy day of Dr. Thomas to get to know him better. We think he is a terrific individual and a gifted physician, but don’t take our word for it, read on to get to know him better.

Q: What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?

A: Dr. Thomas

I boarded in family medicine. However, I’ve worked in Emergency Medicine since my graduation in 2007.

 

Q: Why did you decide to go into emergency medicine?

A: Dr. Thomas

I love taking care of patients when they need the most when you have to make the most critical care decision for the patients. When every second, every minute count.

Risk of Long ER Wait Times

Risk of Long ER Wait Times

Nobody likes to wait but waiting when you are sick or in pain is worse, and frankly, for us, it’s unacceptable.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we know firsthand how pain and fear can affect patients and their families. That is why we always strive to find better ways to improve our response times.

These are some of our most recent improvements:

Online Check-In

You can complete the simple form while you are on your way to our nearest center.

The online check-in offers many benefits:

  • It alerts our staff you are coming so we will be waiting for you at the door
  • It helps cut our response time significantly which is vital for critical patients
  • Our administrative staff and Patient Advocate can start the insurance paperwork ahead of time so you can go home faster

In-House Doctors

We are very excited about this recent change. Altus Emergency Centers has broken with tradition and decided to do things better by hiring doctors directly.

Having in-house physicians working around the clock has not only improved how fast we can treat patients, it has also it has allowed us to improve our quality of care.

How Risky Are ER Wait Times?

The overcrowding crisis of hospital-based ER’s is an undeniable threat to public health.

There have been many studies regarding the effects of long wait times in the ER to patient outcomes.

One study found that patients who visited the ER and encountered long wait times were more likely to die or require hospitalization after they left the ER.

Additionally, research from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality linked ER overcrowding with more frequent medication errors. Meaning patients either got the wrong medication or the wrong dose. The study also found that when hospital ER’s are overcrowded, more patients did not receive their medicine when needed.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

What Causes Hospital-Based ER Overcrowding?

risk of long er wait times hospital overcrowding

Understanding what causes a problem is usually the first step in finding a solution to it. In the case of ER overcrowding, the answer is not always clear.

Many reasons can cause a hospital ER to become overcrowded:

  • A big accident brought in too many patients at once
  • The ER is understaffed

There are patients in the ER that need hospitalization, but the hospital doesn’t have room for them. When this happens, patients must stay in the ER until the hospital can take them in; this means there are fewer beds available in the ER.

How Long Will You Have to Wait in the ER?

Waiting in the ER can be distressing, not only for patients who under the best circumstances are in a lot of pain and at worst are fighting for their lives. It is also stressful for family members.

ER doctors and nurses also feel the pressure to see more patients, and this can result in lower quality of care.

According to the latest data from Pro Publica, the average wait time for a patient to see a doctor in a hospital-based ER is 18 minutes. On average, it takes 132 minutes from the time the patient first enters the ER to the time they get to go home.

By comparison, patients who visit an Altus Emergency Center can expect to be on their way home within 90 minutes. How do we achieve this?

  • It takes only 6 minutes for one of our registered nurses to evaluate a patient
  • Non-critical patients will get to see a doctor within 15 minutes after arrival. Critical patients receive immediate medical attention.

Thanks to our onsite laboratory and diagnostic imaging, on average, our doctors can have a final diagnosis within 79 minutes.

Children’s Eye and Health Safety

Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month

It’s important to keep an eye on your kids, but it’s equally important to keep an eye on your kid’s eyes.  Make sure to pay special attention to your children’s eye and health safety.  It’s back to school season, which means as a parent, you are probably busy shopping for school supplies and clothes. But there is one more thing you must add to your back to school checklist, and that is scheduling an eye exam for your kids.

Eye exams at the beginning of the school year are essential because vision health and learning go hand in hand.

Children, especially young ones, don’t know what normal vision is like, so they may not complain if they have any eyesight problems. And if your child can’t see very well, it may affect their studies.

You should get a comprehensive eyesight test for your kids at least once a year because children’s eyes change as they grow. Children’s eye and health safety go way past the eye exams.

Children’s Eye Health and Safety Tips

Common Eyesight Problems in Children

An eye examination can help diagnose the most common eyesight problems, including:

  • Near-Sightedness: Also known as short-sightedness or myopia. This eye disorder occurs when light focuses in front of, instead of on, the retina. As a result, distant objects to be blurry while close objects appear normal.
  • Far-Sightedness: Also known as hyperopia. As you may have guessed, this is the opposite of near-sightedness. In far-sightedness, the light focuses behind instead of on the retina. As a result, close objects appear blurry, while far objects may appear normal.
  • Astigmatism: This disorder happens because the eye does not focus light evenly on the retina. As a result, vision is always blurry no matter the distance.

Prescription lenses can correct any of these conditions. However, eye exams can also help diagnose other disorders, such as:

  • Amblyopia: Commonly referred to as lazy eye
  • Strabismus: Crossed eyes
  • Ptosis: Drooping of the eyelid
  • Color deficiency: Colorblindness

Preventing Eye Injuries in Children

Protecting your children’s eyesight means more than keeping them healthy; it also means preventing eye injuries.

Prevent Blindness provides the following statistics:

  • Every year there are more than 125,000 eye injuries caused by household products
  • Emergency rooms treat a sports-related eye injury every 13 minutes
  • 43% of all sports-related eye injuries victims are children 14 and younger

The good news is 90% of these eye injuries are preventable; all we need is to understand the dangers, implement safety practices, and use appropriate eye protection.

Eye Safety at Home

Protect your child from eye injury at home, by:

  • Making sure your furniture and fixtures don’t have sharp edges
  • Not using hazardous solvents and detergents around your kids. And remember never to mix cleaning agents
  • Don’t let your kids out in the yard when you are using a lawnmower or weed trimmer as debris can fly and hit them
  • Use guards on all your power tools and equipment

Outdoor and Play Eye Safety

These tips can help you keep your child’s eyes safe while they are outside or playing:

    • Teach your children to never look directly at the sun
    • Make sure your child wears safety goggles or glasses made from polycarbonate while playing sports. Polycarbonate lenses are 20 times stronger than ordinary eyeglasses and can withstand a ball traveling 90mph
    • Toys that shoot pellets, arrows, or paintballs are not safe for young children. If your kids are older and want to play with these types of toys, make sure they wear safety goggles.
    • Inspect your child’s playgrounds and play areas for potential eye hazards

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

When to Bring Your Kid to the ER

Not all eye injuries will require a trip to our ER. However, knowing when to come to the nearest Altus Emergency Center can save your child’s eye.

  • Acute Hyphema: This is a severe injury that requires immediate medical attention. Blunt trauma is the cause of acute hyphema. The blow causes blood to accumulate in the space between the cornea and the iris.
  • Punctured Eyeball: Another serious eye injury that will require immediate medical attention. A punctured eyeball happens when a sharp object has completely torn the cornea or sclera. This type of injury can result from flying debris from a lawnmower

As parents, it’s our responsibility to do everything we can to ensure our kids’ eyes are healthy. But there will be times when you won’t be able to prevent an accident, that is where Altus Emergency Centers can make a difference.

Our pediatric emergency physicians are on call 24/7 to take care of your little ones in times of need.
