Statewide Disaster Drill
Staff at Lompoc Valley Medical Center took part in the statewide Medical Health Exercise today, with the scenario of an incoming patient with suspected Ebola virus. To further test the staff response and training, LVMC had one suspected Ebola patient arrive at 6 a.m. and a second at 8 a.m., both presenting as health care workers recently returned from Liberia, and both experiencing extreme symptoms of Ebola exposure. Thank you to staff, patients and others for their help with this effort and their understanding as the drill was conducted throughout the entire morning .
A dedication from LVMC to ride on Rose Parade Float
CEO Jim Raggio, Chief Nurse Executive Jayne Scalise and Director of the Critical Care Unit Katie Ellis participated Wednesday afternoon in an emotional ceremony in the Honda Room. Mr. Raggio was invited by the American Hospital Association and OneLegacy, an organ and tissue recovery organization, to sign a special dedication for inclusion on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float on Jan. 1, 2015. The float is called “The Never-Ending Story” and honors organ and tissue donors, recipients and families. Mr. Raggio's message, thanking donors for their gift of life, is attached to a vial holding a fresh rose, which will join thousands of others on the float. Also at the press conference were the children and grandchildren of donor Stephanie Kazianka, mother of nine and foster mother to 59 children, who died at LVMC in 2011. Mrs. Kazianka gave the gift of her kidneys, corneas and tissue. Her donations are credited with helping about 50 people, including a 63-year-old woman who received one kidney.
