Everyone in Austin has benefited from the work of Dr. Charles Pelphrey -

I couldn’t tell you just where the money came for living expenses, but I made several hitch-hiking trips back to Austin to hit up everyone I knew for money.”BreakthroughsThe summer after his sophomore year at medical school, Pelphrey worked at Camp Swift, near Bastrop, and tended to country kids who lived nowhere near a clinic.

The new asylums: How Utah traps the mentally ill behind bars - Deseret News

Monday, June 19, 2017

The close-knit pair grew up in Weber County, where they were reared by their grandmother and uncle, found the same group of friends and got into the same kind of teenage trouble — shoplifting, breaking into cash registers, dabbling in drugs.Even back then, Matt Hall had always been loving but volatile, his brother said — playful and gentle with children but quick to anger with strangers and friends. Matt Hall and Brittany Christensen with their daughter Haze Hall and Christensens daughter Alizea Gobel. Courtesy of Brittany ChristensenHis brother's "episodes," as Nate Hall called them, started around 2009 or 2010, when Matt was about 23. That's when he began noticing moments his brother wouldn't respond to direct questions, days when he would talk about people listening in on his conversations and nights that he could not remember who he had talked to or what he had done earlier in the day.At first, Nate Hall chalked it up to his brother's intermittent drug use. But it got worse. In November of 2015, at a birthday party for his 4-year-old daughter, Matt Hall frightened his uncle when he told him that sometimes, for reasons even he didn't really understand, he would sleep in his backyard in Ogden in freezing temperatures.Nate Hall attempted to get his brother to a doctor, but he insisted he wasn't sick. When a doctor eventually diagnosed him with schizophrenia, he refused to take his medication.Things were unraveling fast when, a week later, a neighbor reported Matt Hall to police for allegedly threatening to beat him up.Nate Hall was surprised when he heard later that his brother had refused to give the cops his name and tried to run from two Ogden police officers, wrestling a Taser away from one of them in an "explosion of violence." Nate Hall prints out old photos of his brother, Matt, right, and himself, left, before Matt's funeral at Myers Mortuary in Ogden on Saturday, April 15, 2017. Nicole Boliaux, Deseret NewsHis brother hadn't been carrying drugs, weapons or other contraband. The only charges filed in the incident — disarming a police officer of an energy device, a third-degree felony, and other felonies and misdemeanors — were the ones that he got for fighting back.In jail, Ha

Texas paramedic looks back on 41 years in EMS -

Monday, June 19, 2017

You need to look at the educational standards and make yourself an expert on every single point. Then you have to practice teaching. Hook onto somebody who can be a mentor who’ll let you break in gradually."From litigator to educatorIn 1981, Gandy became a paramedic – the only one in Honey Grove – and continued to volunteer. "I was basically on call all the time," he says. As EMS occupied more and more of his life, Gandy knew he was headed for a career change."I decided to become a full-time medic in 1989," he recalls. "I’d been very involved in EMS at the state level: writing regulations and exam questions, serving on the Governor’s committee – things like that."I just didn’t like practicing law anymore. It’s a high-stress business. I was fortunate to have done well enough not to have to worry about income so I figured, what the hell, I’m going to do what I like to do."Gandy didn’t have to wait long for the right EMS opportunity. "I got a call that same year from the regional guy in the state EMS office. He said Tyler (Junior College) was looking to start a two-year paramedic program, and thought I ought to apply."Well, they picked me, and we built that program into something quite successful. The school still offers an Associate’s Degree in Emergency Medical Services Professions. I stayed there until I retired in 2004 and moved to Tucson (Arizona)."Gandy says law school and his 25 years as an attorney taught him much more than the law. "You learn to think critically; how to gather and cull facts, then decide what’s important and what isn’t."One thing that seems to be a problem for EMS people is the difference between a fact and a conclusion. When you read most patient-care reports, they’re filled with unsupportable conclusions. For example, ‘Patient is A&Ox4.’ Well, that means they’re awake and alert to time, place, person and event, but how did you determine that? Lots of times, that awake-and-alert stuff is a conclusion with no basis. A good lawyer would rip that to shreds."What EMS providers think they know about the lawEMS workers often misunderstand legalities, according to Gandy. He cites the law of consent and refusal as an example."We don’t have to worry too much about consent," he says, "because we can treat almost anyone under implied consent if we have to. Where we run into problems is when we either want to refuse a patient or the patient wants to refuse care against our advice."A refusal has some technical parts to it that are seldom taught to EMS students. You have to prove informed refusal, but before you get to that point, you have to prove your patient has the present mental capacity to understand the nature of his condition and the nature of refusal, and has enough mental acuity to make a rational judgment."Gandy says most EMS providers don’t know how to determine whether a patient has present mental capacity. Instead, they focus on mental competence – a legal concept rather than a medical one."Everyone is mentally competent unless they’re declared otherwise by a court. Even if you’re drunk, you

Firefighters honor fallen comrade along 26-mile funeral procession - WLWT Cincinnati

Monday, June 19, 2017

If you come from a city or small town, career, volunteer, we all do the same job. Times like this is when you really understand that,” Callihan said.Burns developed occupational renal cancer from breathing in fumes and smoke on the job.“Those of us that are still a part of it need to take something away from here today. Even if it just is an awareness of the hazards that we deal with regularly, there is something to be learned,” said Glendale Fire Chief Kevin Hardwick. “Tim was a fighter his whole career here at the fire department,” Callihan said. “A fighter all the way to the end. His message and what he did will carry on for us and help us in the future.”“It was a badge of honor back in the day to be a smoke eater, to have the dirtiest fire gear. Little did we know, it would come back to bite us,” said Cincinnati firefighter Joe Rosemeyer.Burns’ death comes after a state bill was passed to compensate firefighters who contract work-related cancers.However, Burns was diagnosed before the bill was passed and will not benefit from the legislation.Burns, 48, leaves behind a wife and two teenage sons.

How to find the joy, whatever your age - Fenton Tri County Times

Saturday, June 10, 2017

Getting old is not for sissies” is one of the quotes Actress Bette Davis is most well known for, and she would know — she lived to be 81 years old until her death in 1989 of breast cancer. Anyone who is getting older or who is caring for aging parents understands that there are periods of both joy and stress in life. It’s important to build your resilience and find healthy ways to cope with the inevitable changes of life that come with aging, according to Some of the changes may include retirement after a lifetime of working; coping with the death of a spouse or child; moving from home into an assisted living facility or nursing home; grieving the loss of friends who have died and adjusting to physical and mental limitations that come with aging.How to cope with these changes• Focus on the things you’re grateful for. The longer you live, the more you lose. But as you lose people and things, life can become even more precious. When you stop taking things for granted, you appreciate and enjoy what you have even more.• Acknowledge and express your feelings. Don’t deny what you’re going through by burying your feelings. That can lead to anger,
