EMS Stroke Triage Class
We partnered with Olean General Hospital and Stryker Neurovascular to host an EMS Stroke Education class on Tuesday. About 30 EMS providers from around the region attended the training in Olean. Claudia Fitzgerald of Stryker Neurovascular presented the training which focused on improving the triage of stroke in the field. Seconds matter when it comes to treating strokes. As stroke treatment continues to advance, I’m very grateful that we’re able to provide these trainings to help EMS providers ensure they’re giving patients the best pre-hospital care possible. I want to thank Sami L. Placer of Upper Allegheny Health System and Dr. Brian Walters for helping us coordinate and offer this important training.
Prescription Drug Take Back Day
I wanted to remind everyone that Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can turn in unused and expired prescription medications so they can be safety disposed of.  All drop-offs of prescription medication can be done anonymously. However, the drop-off locations will not accept syringes. Drop-off locations include the Cattaraugus County Office Building on Leo Moss Drive in Olean, the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation Health Center in Irving, the Corner Drug Store in Cattaraugus, Delevan Plaza in Delevan, the Lionel R. John Health Center in Salamanca, the Salamanca City Fire Station and Vic Vena Pharmacy in Olean. In Allegany County, Fillmore Pharmacy and the Friendship Ambulance Squad are drop off locations. In Chautauqua County, the Jamestown Police Department on East Second Street is a drop off location. You should never flush unused medication down the toilet or throw it away with your household garbage as they can enter the environment and impact population health. Proper disposal also prevents children from accessing medication which could be addictive and dangerous.
