Hospital establishes clinic focusing on stroke prevention and thrombosis

Lauzon’s hidden agenda to slash protection for the environment

rapid access to diagnostic services, health assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and risk factor management to those who have had a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or a mild stroke. Referrals can be made through family physicians or through the Emergency de- partment. In order to ensure efficiency of the clinic visit it is possible that some test be completed prior to the initial visit. Once a signed referral is received, the nurse practitioner will triage the request and the patient will be contacted by the ad- ministrative assistant to be booked in to the clinic. The thrombosis clinic is operated by the same staff as the Stroke Prevention Clinic but focuses on patients who have been re- cently diagnosed with a blood clot in their leg or in their lung. Patients are being referred for follow-ups, anticoagulant dosing and OTN-Telehealth communication with The Ottawa Hospital through referrals initiated by the emer- gency department. Education is given re- garding the use of their anticoagulation therapy. You may contact the clinic at 613- 938-4240 ext. 3118 for any other questions. Bucket with sensitivity and enthusiasm.

Emily Screech, Jason Dann, Autumn Essex-MacIn- tyre and Garth Shepherd did an excellent job as the golden ticket winners. The production team was made up of Rachelle Eves, PamLalonde, Connie Aikman and Kelly Leclerc. Viscount teacher and artist Karen Wooding designed the sets. Proceeds from the production were used to buy two cordless microphones for the school community. Additional funds will be dedi- cated to future art projects at the school.

With the support and leadership of the Champlain Regional Stroke Network, the Cornwall Community Hospital has re- cently established an outpatient second- ary stroke prevention and thrombosis clinic. Over the past few weeks, the team has been developing processes for referral to these clinics. Our nurse practitioner, Nancy McDonald has been busy training at the Ottawa Hos- pital. She is very excited to finally be on site and provide patient care out of our new office located on 3rd floor, at the McConnell site. The clinic utilizes a comprehensive, inter- disciplinary approach to stroke preven- tion/thrombosis needs. The initial team consists of a physician consultant, nurse practitioner and a clerk. “These two clinics are part of our admis- sion prevention program, which treats peo- ple on an outpatient basis, allowing acute care services to be used as such,” said Janice McCormmick, director of the program The Stroke Prevention Clinic will provide The Journal Young actors at Viscount Alexander Public School recently presented a vibrant produc- tion of Willy Wonka Junior. More than 45 students and many staff and parent volunteers worked together to make this show successful. The spirit of collabora- tion made the production special.
