Temperatures may have hovered around the 100 degree mark for most of the day, but the heat didn’t deter a full complement of golfers and tennis players from turning out for NorthBay Guild’s 31st Annual Golf & Tennis Classic on Monday, July 14.
The microscopes are in place, the high-tech equipment has been moved and now the nearly dozen clinical lab scientists and lab techs are settling into their new home: NorthBay Medical Center’s bright, new microbiology lab, which opened at the end of May.
Dr. Kyle Michaelis, cardiologist, will discuss cardiac devices, including pacemakers and defibrillators, at the next NorthBay Cardiac Educational Series session at 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 22, in Annex 1 and 2 at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield.
NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield has earned the prestigious verification as a Level II trauma center by the American College of Surgeons, the first hospital in Solano County to achieve the distinction.
“It’s the gold standard that we have sought to reach since the beginning,” said Kathy Richerson, vice president and chief nursing officer who was part of the initial planning of the trauma program nearly a decade ago. “This is an incredible accomplishment by a highly skilled, dedicated and talented team.”
Teens from 10 Solano County high schools graduated from NorthBay Nurse Camp June 27, marking the 10-year anniversary of the program. What began as the dream of three nurses has become a sought-after and life-changing experience for the young people who participate in the four-day camp. “On Tuesday 32 strangers came together, unsure about what awaited them, but eager to experience nursing,” says Donna Dabeck, manager of nurse recruitment and retention. “On Friday 32 fast friends tearfully said goodbye to the nurses who had infused them with a passion for nursing.”says. “They are all changed by the experience.”
Notification came last week declaring the NorthBay Joint Replacement Program as Certified by The Joint Commission.“It’s official,” said Mary Dickey, director of Accreditation and Licensure. “NorthBay Healthcare has its first Joint Commission Certified Disease Specific Program.”
Several key pieces of medical equipment to aid pediatric trauma patient care have been purchased, thanks to a grant provided by the Solano Community Foundation and the NorthBay Guild. The funds were used to purchase two baby scales, a cardiac monitor and thermometers for patient rooms in the Emergency Departments at NorthBay Medical Center and NorthBay VacaValley Hospital.
