But more importantly, she understands the value of compassion and the longing for independence. Teresa Schroeder does a lot of diagnosis coding and paperwork as the RN case manager at Accentra Home Healthcare, located in Oklahoma City. But that’s not all she does. She knows all about patient care because she has a natural affinity for people. And it shows. There are doctors orders and communication needs with the nurses in the field, she said. Patients, families and the nurses at doctors offices, wound care clinics and dialysis centers are common points of contact. “It’s mostly paperwork and phone calls,” said Schroeder, who has been a nurse for 15 years, since earning her nursing degree at Bacone College in Muskogee. There is always more paperwork, she said. The Paper Reduction Act that was enacted during the administration of President Bill Clinton did not reduce paper work, she said.

The annual award identifies hospitals across the United States that health care consumers choose as having the highest quality and image. “It is truly one of the biggest honors to receive an award based on the feedback of our patients,” said Jim Gebhart, president of Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City. “Every day, our talented doctors and co-workers dedicate themselves to providing the very best care and service to patients and their loved ones. We are so thrilled to know that patients recognize and value that high level of service and care.” Mercy Hospital Oklahoma is one of four Mercy hospitals and one of just 273 hospitals nationwide to receive the national award this year. Consumers in the Oklahoma City area have recognized Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City as a top hospital based on four key metrics: ∑ Best overall quality ∑ Best image/reputation ∑ Best doctors ∑ Best nurses. Winners are determined by consumer perceptions on multiple quality and image ratings collected in the company’s Market Insights survey, the largest online consumer health care survey in the country. “The complexity of health care has urged consumers to play much more of an integral role in their care decisions, which in turn, is prompting hospitals and health care systems to lead a proactive approach to brand awareness,” said Brian Wynne, vice president of sales at National Research Corporation. “This year’s winners have done an exceptional job of representing their organizations in terms of high-quality care, improvement initiatives, and positive consumer perceptions and experiences.” 0RESORTED3TANDARD 530OSTAGE 0!)$ 0ERMIT /KLAHOMA#ITY/K 0AGE .OVEMBER Malaria Indicated in Initial Test Results on Oklahoman Receiving Post-Arrival Monitoring following West Africa Travel The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and Tulsa Health Department (THD) report that a laboratory test indicates positive results for malaria in an individual in Tulsa County, who recently traveled from West Africa. An additional laboratory test is pending at the Oklahoma State Public Health Laboratory and will be completed later today. The individual was being monitored daily by public health personnel because the person had traveled to Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone within the previous 21 days. The individual was assessed to be low risk for contracting Ebola, did not report any known exposure to persons with Ebola nor did the individual provide healthcare to an Ebola patient while in Africa. In taking all precautionary measures, a blood specimen was collected and will be sent to CDC for Ebola testing. Late Thursday evening, the individual informed THD health officials that they had developed a fever. THD immediately implemented an isolation and clinical evaluation plan in conjunction with the Regional Medical Response System following appropriate infection control protocols. The individual was safely transported via ambulance to a local hospital for medical evaluation and care. /KLAHOMAS.URSING4IMES /KLAHOMAS.URSING4IMES .OVEMBER 30)2)4 #ONTINUEDFROM0AGE home health. Her career includes working in a nursing home and in a small rural hospital. However, she has spent 13 years as a home health nurse. Seven of those years have been loyal to Accentra. So what keeps her dedicated to patient care at Accentra? “Well, I love the people that I work with and the patients,” Schroeder said. “We do have repeat patients. The management is great to work with.” Anyone considering a career in home health should be able to work independently, Schroeder said. Home health nurses do not have the code teams and the IV team and lab nurses coming to draw blood for a home health nurse at somebody’s home, she said. “You draw the lab and you do the instructions,” Schroeder continued. “When you’re in the home, it’s you, a good skill set for assessments and accessing a vein. Sometimes new nurses are easier to train, but then an older nurse has the skills down.” Schroeder was called to be a nurse when working at a young age in a nursing home as a home health aide. That was enough to propel her up the career ladder. She has learned that patient care needs all levels of health care workers from certified nurse aides, medication aides, physicians and nurses. Each role is of value, she said. Everybody needs this family of patient care, she said. Schroeder recalls how being a home health aide in a long-term care setting helped to prepare her to be a better nurse. “If our basic needs aren’t met, nothing else can be either,” Schroeder explained. Accentra nurses are dedicated. That’s what Schroeder admires most about the staff she spends time with each day. “They are caring and the patients love them,” she emphasized. “I couldn’t ask for a better group of field staff to work with.” Outside of work, Schroeder will spend time with her children and family. Together, they enjoy water activities. She loves to cook. Her daughter is an animal lover and is talking about becoming a veterinarian. “My son only asks me questions when he’s sick,” she said with a chuckle. “He’s 21. They’ve not really shown any interest in going in a nursing field.” A home health nurse must like to drive a lot and be on his or her own, she said. You can call a physician from the house but a doctor is not there in the home, she said. “We educate patients on their disease processes, and any new medications a doctor calls in to increase or decrease a dosage,” she said. Many patients in home health are educated about their disease processes, but something a nurse says may trigger a new question. Schroeder has heard it said, “Well, I didn’t know if I’m sick my blood sugar may be a little higher.” People like to be in their homes. So home health is working well in allowing people to be more independent in life, she said. Sometimes a nurse will go in to find a patient needs hospital care. The patient may not want to go, she said. “We make every effort to try to contact their physician and manage them at home without having to send them to the emergency room,” she said. “We’ll maybe make them 0AGE a doctor’s appointment for that day. Patients want to stay at home. They don’t want to be in the hospital or a nursing home.” Patients also tell her they don’t mind going to a skilled facility as long as they know they will return home, she added. For many patients, home is all they know. “So that’s where they want to stay,” Schroeder said. Schroeder offers encouraging words. Something keeps her going. “Even in the office we’re almost as independent as the nurse in the field is,” she said. “We maintain that open line of communication with physicians and the nurses, wound care clinics and whatever. It keeps us on our toes.” Her career is not all paperwork, she said. At times, she will visit with patients. “Sometimes you miss that. Sometimes I’ll say, ‘Hey, I need to go see somebody.’” 0AGE .OVEMBER CAREERS IN /KLAHOMAS.URSING4IMES NURSING QUALITY AGING IN PLACE: HOME CARE ASSISTANCE ENHANCES LIFE BY-IKE,EE7RITER0HOTOGRAPHER Greg Bridges says he loves how his eclectic nature of the nursing industry. A registered nurse, Bridges has an extensive career in nursing with a diverse understanding of complex facets. This compliments his service today as the administrator and co-owner of Home Care Assistance, located in Edmond. Quality aging in place enhances lives, he said. “Nothing gets you more than when you are concentrating on a medical aspect and this beautiful elderly lady grabs hold of your hand and says, ‘I’m so lonely,’” Bridges said. “That’s something we just couldn’t do anything about before.” Today transcends with a new model of care with Home Care Assistance. The company employs certified home health aides that are placed in the home of clients that need personal assistance. They also employ non-certified staff who have experience working with seniors. They can be placed with clients who need a companion level of care. There is a growing need in the community for assisting part of the elderly population with meals, assisting them with help to the grocery store and ensuring they have transportation to see their physicians. He earned a master’s degree in health education and a bachelor’s degree in nursing at the State University of New York through the Jamestown Community College. Bridges has worked as sports coach, in acute care and has taught nursing in higher education at Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, Kansas, where he was director of staff development. In 1993, he was asked to help open a home health care business. “That’s where I started to make this change. We were hard core. We took care of a lot. We really shot to reduce re-hospitalizations,” he said. Bridges began to realize that some people have a need for more than what medical services offer. He responded to a need among part of the elderly population involving loneliness, boredom and a loss for a sense of purpose. Bridges had worked in the quality improvement specialist and consultant world of health care at the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality. Today at Home Care Assistance, Bridges is able to offer a holistic approach to senior care. This means he engages further than what medical aspects can offer in the overall health of a person. “We’re looking at them more globally. What is it we can do to help with the boredom? What is it we can do to help with the helplessness, loneliness, and enhance their sense of purpose?” he said. “A lot of that is socialization, and we do that through what we call Balance Care Method.” The aides have the time to stay in a home and let the clients’ needs unfold, rather than providing a bath and leaving. Aging in place is not disruptive on anybody’s lifestyle. Home Care Assistance meets elders where they are in life and facilitates care whether it be in a home, assisted living or a nursing home. The home health aides engage. They interact with their clients beyond the home bound limitation of what Medicare specifies when reimbursing the home health care industry, he said. “That’s one of the reasons we started this. I don’t want to be encumbered by that,” Bridges said. The company’s registered nurses initiate the plan of care and assessment. Their focus is non medical, but they keep and eye on the client’s medical health, so they are mediators in working with a home health care agency or other health care settings. “Even the hospital -- we can have clients in there as well,” he said. “But it’s just to go an extra /KLAHOMAS.URSING4IMES .OVEMBER 0AGE Halloween Fun for All Ages Edmond nursing home welcomes trick-or-treaters As co-owner of Home Care Assistance in Edmond.

Areas of the brain addressing try to maximize all of these psycho/ memory, executive functioning, social aspects.” language, visual aspects and coping are part of threats for diminished capacity. Not every dementia points to the plaques and tangles of Alzheimer’s disease, Bridges said. There are Halloween is always a favorite for the young and young at heart. That’s why Grace Living Center Edmond hosts its annual Halloween Trick-or-Treat Party for children from the community. The event is a favorite of residents of the home, who look forward to welcoming young trickor-treaters. “When the kids come in dressed in their costumes the residents just light up,” said Kevin Shaw, activities director at the home. “They love handing out candy to the kids and it really gives them a chance to engage with the community.” This year’s event was slated for Friday, Oct. 31, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at Grace Living Center Edmond, 2520 South Rankin. It was open to kids of all ages. “We brought all the residents out into the home’s town square, located in the front, and they lined Baylee Bolton, a certified nurse aide at the home, fills one of the many candy buckets used to pass candy out to trick-or-treaters. up with buckets of candy to pass out to all the trick-or-treaters,” Shaw said. 0AGE.OVEMBER/KLAHOMAS.URSING4IMES 140 GENERAL NURSING 140 GENERAL NURSING 124 CERTIFIED NURSES AIDE 124 CERTIFIED NURSES AIDE 140 GENERAL NURSING 7EARENOWTAKING #.! 7EARELOOKINGFORFULL APPLICATIONSFOR TIME#ERTIlED.URSES #ERTIlED.URSES "EARE-ANOR.URSING#ENTER ISHIRINGFOR#.!#-! !IDE-!4S#-!S (OUSEKEEPING)FYOUARE !IDESANDPART 4%./!+37EARE LOOKINGFORFULLTIME #.!-!4SAND#-!S 0LEASEAPPLYATTHE COMMUNITYAT3% (UNTINGTON#IR,AWTON /+.OPHONECALLS PLEASE%/% 7EARELOOKING 0HYSICIAN FORSTRONG !SSISTANTOR.URSE #ERTIlED 0RACTITIONER INTERESTEDPLEASEAPPLYIN TIME,ICENSED PERSONAT.$RIVE .URSES!IDES 0HYSICIAN!SSISTANTOR.URSE 0RACTITIONER NEEDED FOR 0RACTICAL.URSES (ARTSHORNE/+ HOURS CLINIC (%!6%.%2-!./2ISNOW FORSHIFT EXTENDED 2EQUIRES CURRENT /KLAHOMA TAKINGAPPLICATIONSFOR#.!S 7EOFFERA LICENSE%XPERIENCEINURGENT ANDPARTTIME,0.S#OME CARE EMERGENCY ROOM OR TO7ST3TREETIN LONGEVITY FAMILY PRACTICE PREFERRED (EAVENER/+ORCONTACTTHE #.!OR((! #.!S ((!S )F YOU ARE 2OTATING SHIFTS INCLUDING $IRECTOROF.URSING BONUSOF CARINGLIKETOBEINCHARGE SOME WEEKEND WORK3ALARY #ARLA$ELEPLANKAT OF YOUR TIME SCHEDULE FOR CONSISTS OF GUARANTEED BASE CONTACT'RISWOLD(OME#ARE DEPENDING ON EXPERIENCE YEAROF AT %XCELLENT BENElTS AND A WORKING SERVICEAND PLEASANT ENVIRONMENT %MAIL RESUME AND SALARY REQUIREMENTS TO EVERY SWBELLNET OR FAX 2.,0.#.!

Calligraphy - from the Ancient Greek combining beauty and writing - is something many have grown up with. From hand-addressed wedding invitations, to personalized Bibles calligraphy is an art form that is rarely taught, and takes years to master. In a world where handwriting has been replaced by emails and keyboards are the new stroke of a pen, McAllister harkens back to a time of a more personal form of communication. “I like seeing the person’s face who hired me when they see the finished product,” McAllister said. “I really love it when they appreciate what I do.” McAllister is a life-long Oklahoman, growing up with a dad in the Air Force and attending Del City High. She parlayed a scholarship to the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond into a bachelor’s in sociology and master’s in criminal justice administration. “I wanted to help kids stay out of trouble and that’s what I did the first part of my post grad,” she said. Working at the non-profit MidDel Youth and Family Center was her job. But turns out, calligraphy was her passion. Kim McAllister enjoys seeing the faces of clients light up when they see her work. Her mother dates McAllister’s obsession with writing back to the second grade. “I would just write all the time,” she said. “They bought me a chalkboard for my room to save trees. After a year my mom got tired of cleaning my room with all the chalk dust because I wore that sucker out.” A dry erase board followed as did a calligraphy set around sixth grade. McAllister’s love of the written word was so powerful she decided to make it her life’s work. So she quit her job and now runs Sooner Calligraphy from her home full-time in April 2012. She’s a one-stop shop with no employees. Some days she has to hand address 100 wedding invitations. Other days she’s writing out a scripture or poem someone wants to frame and give as a gift. “It was extremely scary,” McAllister said of going out on her own, but then I thought rationally and realized I had been marketing and doing public relations for years and I had made lots of companies money and marketed them so why can’t I do that for myself. “You put your faith in the Lord and say ‘I’m going to do what I know what I was born to do.’” McAllister is well compensated for her work. Her clients aren’t the typical ones who head to Michael’s on a Sunday to buy a few hundred wedding invitations. And often times she admits that it’s the mother or even grandmother who insists the bride-to-be meet with her. Because after all “guys don’t have a clue what I’m talking about,” she laughed. McAllister believes she is the only full-time calligrapher in the metro. Some may dabble as a hobby, but McAllister has invested her life. “I would hope I’m bringing it back a little bit because I am someone who can offer it full-time,” she said. As her business has grown, McAllister has become more selective. She used to sit for 20 hours at a time, creating beauty for others at her own expense.

She still gets a steady flow of calls from event planners. At the moment, she’s working on four different weddings - all at various stages ranging from November to next year. She’s done a wedding in Hawaii before and does get calls from other states. Doing what she does, McAllister feels like she’s an integral part of helping people communicate in a meaningful way. “Everybody wants to send a personal thank-you note but how many really do it,” she said. “It’s so much different, something handwritten and personal to them.

My supervisor suggested that I should come talk to you after I shared with her some of the things that were going on in my marriage. She used the word “abused” and I was shocked. I never thought I was abused. But now I believe it is true. So what do I do now? A. Hillary has been married to Sean for over 20 years. They both have full time jobs and a comfortable income. They have four children; 2 grown/2 still at home. Hillary has been depressed and wanting out of her marriage for years. She described her husband as very controlling as evidenced by wanting to know where she was at all times when she was not working, not wanting her to have girlfriends but to spend her off time with him and expecting the house to be “spotless” at all times. (Just to name a few). Hillary was presented with a list of domestic violence warning signs in counseling. She was dumbfounded when she realized that a number of abusive acts that had been perpetrated against her by her husband were on the list. Here are the ones she checked: 1. Jealousy and possessiveness (He tells me that he “owns” me.) 2. Controlling or limiting contact with friends and family. (I have to sneak around to see my friends, sometimes I pretend that I am going to work so he won’t ask questions.) 3. Controlling of finances, making the abused partner ask for money, or refusing access to money. (He expects me to pay the bills with my check and some of his, but he has “fun” money at all times). 4. Undermines my parenting. (When I set limits with our children he will take them to do something fun and give them money, he will give them whatever they want.) 5. Forces sex when the abused partner doesn’t want to or makes the abused partner perform sexual acts he/she doesn’t want to do. (This is a huge problem. I try to let him fall asleep before I do, sometimes I pretend to fall asleep in the guest bedroom but when I do sleep with him he will always wake me up in the middle of the night; he says it is his “right” to have sex with me, when he wants it because I am his wife. And if I don’t want to he accuses me of having sex with someone else.) Abusive and degrading behavior are not acceptable but as Hillary has stated, “I can’t just leave, I don’t know if Sean would hurt me but if I left him and he ever saw me with another man I think he would kill me.” At the present time Hillary is attending counseling to have a safe place to discuss her thoughts and feelings. What the future holds for Hillary is uncertain but she is trying to take life one day at a time, build a strong support system and seek legal advice to clarify some of her concerns.. they can help make a difference in the life of a child Broadcasting live from the Children’s Hospital Atrium, Thurs. and Fri., Nov. 6 and 7, the KXY Loves Kids Radiothon and Calendar Launch will bring together Miracle Kids from across Oklahoma. Each will share their personal story of triumph and strength as they strive to help listeners better understand what it’s like inside our local children’s hospital, as well as how listeners can help kids like them. In addition to Miracle Kids and doctors, representatives from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Children’s Hospital Foundation also will gather to celebrate the new 2015 Miracle Children of Oklahoma Calendar from 10 to 11 a.m., Thurs., Nov. 6. Calendars are on sale for $5 and can be autographed by featured Miracle Children onsite. During Radiothon, KXY morning DJs Bill Reed and Shawn Carey will broadcast live for two full days. Their goal is to help raise awareness and funds to support the mission of Children’s Hospital Foundation – to improve the health of Oklahoma’s children. Listeners will hear on-air interviews from Miracle Kids who are dedicated to speaking and raising awareness about the importance of research, education and clinical care through fundraising efforts in Oklahoma. The amazing stories of hope and courage from Miracle Children like Hailey will inspire all who tune in and listen. Hailey was born with a rare genetic disorder characterized by severe malformations of the chest cavity, ribs and thorax, thus affecting her ability to breathe. She wasn’t expected to live long after birth. A few months later, Hailey’s family discovered she was blind. Despite the odds she would not walk, breathe on her own or live to her tenth birthday, Hailey has accomplished all three. She has excelled in braille and Cherokee language competitions. She’s full of energy and is vivacious. Pledges from the KXY Loves Kids Radiothon and proceeds from calendar sales help to make sure kids like Hailey can receive leading edge pediatric specialty care without having to leave Oklahoma. “I’m proud to have been a part of Radiothon for the past 12 years,” said Bill Reed, KXY DJ. “This event has allowed me to meet true heroes – the kids, their families and the care teams who help to improve their health. This event never fails to touch my heart each and every year.” Listeners are encouraged to call in and make a pledge to support Oklahoma’s kids through Children’s Hospital Foundation. Callers may choose to be a KXY Loves Kids Club Member for $15 a month, which will go to help Oklahoma’s sickest children, or they may choose to make a one-time gift. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness while keeping 100 percent of donations in the community where they are raised. Children’s Hospital Foundation is a proud affiliate of CMN Hospitals and is dedicated to providing funding for pediatric programs in research, education and clinical care for Oklahoma’s children.
