Appalachian Regional Commission Grant

On Thursday, we had the opportunity to discuss our application for the Appalachian Regional Commission Area Development Grant Program with the members of the Southern Tier West Board of Directors and a representative from the New York State Department of State. If funded, this grant would allow STHCS to purchase two high-fidelity manikins to deliver scenario-based education to EMS providers and other medical professionals in the community. By enhancing our EMS training programs, the EMS Simulation Lab project will increase the ability of our EMS providers to deliver the highest quality of care with confidence. I want to thank Todd Reisner, Trans Am General Manager and STHCS board member, for joining me at this presentation and helping us make the case that this project will improve the quality of prehospital care and be an asset for our community.
Drug Disposal Resources

I’m pleased to report that we received a grant from the AmeriSource Bergen Foundation to combat the opioid epidemic by making it easier to dispose of unused medications. The AmerisourceBergen Foundation is an independent not-for-profit charitable giving organization established by the AmerisourceBergen Corporation to support health-related causes that enrich the global community. As part of their commitment to safe medication use, the AmeriSource Bergen Foundation is providing us with DisposeRx drug deactivation resources. DisposeRx is a powder added to unused medications that forms a gel when mixed with water, permanently sequestering the active ingredients of the medication, making them unavailable for diversion or misuse. We will be partnering with HomeCare and Hospice and Chautauqua County Hospice and Palliative Care to distribute these resources and provide a safe and simple alternative for medication disposal. I want to thank the AmeriSource Bergen Foundation for providing these resources and helping us safely dispose of unused medications in our community.
