Friendly Reminders & News


FDA Drug Recalls   A drug recall is the most effective way to protect the public from a defective or potentially harmful product. A recall is a voluntary action taken by a company at any time to remove a defective drug product from the market.  This list includes voluntary recalls in which public notification has been issued.


Just a reminder I am doing quality assurance audits on documentation.  This is to improve the ability to get insurance coverage for our patients.  Nursing Supervisors will bring copies of notes to the home with areas of opportunity to improve marked.

#TreatYourself: 
Local nurses share their self-care solutions



It's no secret that nurses work hard. Between the demands of a job that can regularly requires 12-hour shifts and competing priorities at home, there can be little time for self care.

For these five local nurses, self care takes on forms as unique as their own very different lives and schedules.


Ashley Dean, Northside Hospital, WellStarKennestone - Exercise, exercise, exercise

Over the past five years, Ashley Dean has been working as a nurse and embracing her passion for critical care. As an ER nurse, she typically works back-to-back 12-hours shifts.Since she doesn't arrive home until about 10 p.m., Dean said she typically takes a long shower as a part of her self-care routine before getting ready to go to sleep. "Sometimes I'll have a glass of wine and watch TV for maybe 20 minutes before bed. Then I have to be up at 6 a.m."

On her days off, Dean enjoys spending time with her family, reading and staying active. "Exercise is big for me. It's probably my number one form of self care. I'm a runner so I try to work out whenever I'm off."

When her husband is off, Dean also likes to take time to herself to run errands. "My job is to care for people and then I come home and take care of my children, so any chance I have to be by myself is a good thing," Dean said. Simple tasks such as grocery shopping or browsing in Hobby Lobby help her to feel rejuvenated .

It Takes a Team to be 
Successful in Healthcare
By Frank Lee 12/20/19
Senior Account Executive, The NBN Group

Giving a gift or sharing face to face would have been so much easier for me than writing my thoughts out and submitting them in this format, but sometimes  you just need to share it and give the details behind the scenes to assure someone of how much value they truly possess. 

I have to start by saying thank you to all of Customer service. Next, I need to thank Mike and the team in the warehouse, then I need to thank Lori and all the Respiratory Therapists. I must thank Idie who is a ghost to many of you, but very present in the work she does with CPAP compliance and finally a big thank you to Erin - the Director of Operations.

Every single one of you plays an extremely important role in how you make the set-up of a patient and follow up look like it's something that we invented!!

It had me thinking quite a bit about how you all are so effective at what you do in making The NBN Group shine, it ultimately is a good feeling knowing that when I walk into an office and they look at me with a smile, it is all because of you.

Erin saw something in me back in July 2017 that was worth taking a shot on and asking the question, "We need to grow our CPAP business down in the deep south, what do you think?" I felt like this was a chance at new territory for me, so I was willing to give it a shot and I said yes.

I recall walking in some of those new offices and sitting with referrals at the time and some of them heard of NBN and they asked, "What happened to your company, I remember your name 2 years back, where did you go?" The vibe they were giving off was mild desperation. I kept hearing exhaustion and frustration in their voices, with our competitors. They were hungry for a new chance - or better yet, a new company and I was willing to "be the risk". Which meant that I had to be careful in what I was offering and listen closely to the needs, but I also had to keep things very simple.

I went back to Erin and communicated what I needed and she responded very well in what we could offer, I kept things real simple and kept communication wide open. I did the same with the CSR's and on occasion or as needed communicated to the warehouse team as well as Lori and the RT's. I felt like we were all on the same page and it works.

NBN has excelled among many of my referrals and the offices I have been able to connect with. There is always room to grow and we must always remain a champion before our customers. But all in all, business continues to move forward as a result of how we communicate. Being in the field and away from the office means I can take for granted a lot of the tough internal challenges that The NBN Group experiences. But I do want you to know I'm appreciative of how critical your energy and effort behind the scenes truly is toward making the whole unit - a complete unit. Trust me, I don't think for a moment that it's easy.

There is more that can be said of all the facets and roles that work and operate to make this business function. I just wanted to highlight how my small role is interconnected within a much larger and critical process called the NBN Group. And I am grateful for how it works!




AMERICAN HEART MONTH
February 2020


Heart disease kills an estimated 630,000 Americans each year. It's the leading cause of death for both men and women. In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to a heart attack. You can greatly reduce your risk for CAD through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medication.

Since 1963, February has been celebrated as American Heart Month to urge Americans to join the battle against heart disease.

Since 2004, February also has been the signature month for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign and the message that heart disease is not only a mans's problem.


In 2020 National Wear Red Day will be celebrated on February 7th.









5 Tips for a Healthy Diet
Penn Medical Center

When it comes to eating right, following these simple guidelines can put you on the path to better health, says Mehreen Husain, MS, RDN, CSO, CNSC, a board certified specialist in oncology nutrition and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician at Princeton Medical Center.




Cook at home. Preparing meals at home rather than eating out or relying on packaged foods helps you control the sodium, sugar and calories in your meals, as well as avoid chemical additives.

Read the labels. Keep a close eye on the ingredients and nutritional labels on prepared foods and do not be tricked into thinking claims such as "low fat" or "reduced calories" mean an item is a healthy choice.

Make informed choices. Switch out unhealthy food choices for healthy ones. For example, opt for leafy greens as the base of your meal instead of rice or pasta, and grilled chicken instead of fried.

Eat mindfully. Take the time to savor what you eat. It will help you avoid overeating and recognize whether certain foods have a positive or negative impact on you physically.

Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water to help your body process foods better and flush toxins. Staying hydrated can even help you feel full.

ANA Enterprise Gears Up for Global 'Year of The Nurse' In 2020
Nov 7th 2019

Silver Spring, MD - The ANA Enterprise today announced its intent to elevate and celebrate the essential, robust contributions of nurses as the world recognizes 2020 as the "Year of the Nurse."

The ANA Enterprise is the family of organizations that is composed of the American Nurses Association (ANA), the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), and the American Nurses Foundation. ANA Enterprise will celebrate Year of the Nurse by engaging with nurses, thought leaders and consumers in a variety of ways that promote nursing excellence, infuse leadership and foster innovation.

"As the largest group of health care professionals in the U.S. and the most trusted profession, nurses are with patients 24/7 and from the beginning of life to the end. Nurses practice in all healthcare settings and are filling new roles to meet the ever-growing demand for health and health care services," said ANA President Ernest J. Grant, PhD, RN, FAAN. "Despite the major role nurses play in health care delivery and community outreach, there are opportunities to increase understanding of the value of nursing in order to expand investment in education, practice and research, as well as increase the numbers of nurses who serve in leadership positions."

"We look forward to working with partner organizations to communicate a contemporary and accurate view of nurses and the critical work they do, as well as challenge boards and other influencers to commit to nursing and nursing leaders in order to improve the nation's health," said Grant.

Given the wide range of nursing roles in the U.S., ANA Enterprise will promote inclusivity and wide engagement of all nurses throughout Year of the Nurse. As an example, during 2020, ANA Enterprise will expand National Nurses Week, traditionally celebrated from May 6 to May 12 each year to a month-long celebration in May to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing.

Popular Health Trends for 2020
By   The Western PA Healthcare News Team   - December 29, 2019


Every year we see new trends in health and fitness take to the stage and spark a lot of interest in individuals looking to improve their lives and feel better day in and day out.
Some of these trends fade out quickly, while others stand the test of time and remain popular for decades to come.
Let's explore what some of the upcoming 2020 health trends are shaping up to be, and what they promise to deliver:

Telehealth to the Rescue
2020 promises to usher in the age of video conference calls with healthcare professionals, as opposed to the traditional doctor's office visits. This means more convenience for those of us who have packed schedules and can find it hard to book an appointment. In addition, it makes healthcare more accessible to those having mobility issues, those who suffer from agoraphobia and other mental health challenges, and those living in secluded rural areas.

Home Workouts Replacing Gym Memberships
At-home fitness is definitely becoming more common, and it's an alternative to paying for a monthly gym membership.  With the rise of YouTube workout videos and systems like Peloton, you are now able to do a complete workout at home, without the need to commute, find a time to work in a workout into your schedule, and have to wait your turn for a specific machine. Not only is this more convenient, but it also allows those who have an aversion to gyms to enjoy all the benefits of a workout.

Plant-Based Meals
While vegetarianism and veganism have been popular for years, more meat-eaters are also turning to plant-based meals, at least once in a while. You can now get vegan sausage rolls, faux eggs, or even vegan fish meals. This means you can enjoy all the benefits of a plant-based diet without having to turn completely vegan. As more plant-based restaurants and food delivery services open their doors, it has never been easier to enjoy some good food wherever you are.
The Benefits of Sleep
We are finally reaching a point where sleep deprivation is no longer hailed as the ultimate productivity hack, but rather treated as the global health epidemic that it really is. To get all the benefits of sleep, like improved physical and mental performance, you can consider investing in a high-quality mattress that can assist you in sleeping better.

Personalization in Both Health and Fitness
The days off mass-recommendations are slowly coming to a close, and 2020 is expected to hail the arrival of personalized everything. Wearable tech gadgets are becoming increasingly popular. These devices can track your health and personal performance and the data can also be used by medical professionals and/or personal trainers to provide personalized services. Other things like health and fitness apps and programs tailored specifically to the individual are all expected to grow exponentially over the coming year.

Mental Health in the Mainstream
Talking about mental health challenges has never been as encouraged as it is today. Once upon a time, openly speaking about anxiety was looked at as a weakness, while we are now slowly making the shift to a more inclusive society where mental health issues are no longer taboo to discuss. With so many celebrities across all walks of life openly speaking out about the hardships and challenges they have faced with their own mental health, it is becoming more acceptable for the average person to admit they also suffer from issues like anxiety.

Final Thoughts
We may need to wait a few years to determine how some of these health trends have fared: but even until then, embracing the ones you feel would benefit your lifestyle the most should be a no-brainer.




Chicken Parmesan Casserole

 All of the goodness of chicken parmesan packed into a delicious cheesy casserole! Crispy chicken, marinara sauce, penne pasta, and cheese come together in this easy to make dish!

This classic Chicken Parmesan is perfect for a casserole dish!
 
What you need to make this dish:
Penne pasta: cooked according to package on the back of box.

Chicken breasts: boneless, skinless chicken breasts are best.

Vegetable oil: this will be used for frying.
Flour: combines the ingredients together.

Eggs: helps bind the ingredients and helps baking the casserole all together.

Bread crumbs: I prefer the Italian seasoned flavoring bread crumbs.

Mozzarella cheese: shredded and divided for two different spots in the recipe.

Parmesan cheese: fresh is best and shredded.

Marinara sauce: pick your favorite marinara sauce.

Chopped basil for garnish: this is an option but it also brings in color and added seasoning.

DIRECTIONS:
Cook your pasta: Cook the pasta according to package directions. Rinse and drain the pasta in a colander.

Prepare and fry your chicken: In a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Pound the chicken to be about 1/4 inch thick or slice in half so they fry easily. 

Place the flour, egg, and Italian bread crumbs in separate bowls. Coat the chicken in the flour, then the egg and lastly the bread crumbs. 

Place to fry in hot oil until brown on each side and no longer pink in center. Remove from the skillet and slice into pieces.

Combine ingredients: In a large bowl combine cooked pasta, chicken, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese and marinara sauce. Mix until combined.

Bake casserole: Spread the pasta in a 9×13 inch casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and uncover and top with remaining cheeses. Continue to bake for about 10 minutes until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through. Garnish with chopped basil if desired.

Best pasta for chicken parmesan casserole
 
Any type and shape of pasta works great for this tried and true Chicken Parmesan casserole.
 
My personal favorite is penne because it is dense and thick enough to enjoy the sauce and chicken all together.
 
Spaghetti is a little harder to enjoy this casserole with so I would avoid that pasta.
 
Penne or bowtie pasta holds up well and even helps to freeze well in the long run.
 
A thicker and dense pasta noodle is best because it can catch and hold the sauce in the grooves of the pasta.
