It was love at first sight for proud parents, Jade Stocks and Jerry James Murphy Jr. of Forestville, as they welcomed Valentine's baby, Jerry James Murphy, III, on February 14th at around 8am.
Looking handsome in their red knitted caps, Jerry and his nursery neighbors, Benicio and Jexiel, stole the hearts of Obstetrics staff (L to R) Jessica Sobczak, Katie Drummond, and Christina Goss.
In combination with on-the-job training, the demanding coursework and exam encourage the competency of personnel performing cleaning, high level disinfection, preparation and assembly, sterilization and distribution of surgical instruments, flexible endoscopes and other devices to promote patient safety.
Congratulations Penny, EJ and Tina. And thank you for your demonstrated commitment to providing quality health care services to our community.
Across the United States, the month of January provides an opportunity to begin the conversation about the importance of cervical cancer screening. National Cervical Cancer Awareness month is intended to remind women how to protect themselves from HPV (human papillomavirus) and cervical cancer.
According to Dr. Daniel Burns, Ob/Gyn specialist at Lake Erie Medical Services, “Pap smears remain essential in preventing cervical cancer. Women can help prevent cervical cancer by getting screened regularly, starting at age 21”.
Physicians at LEMS, including Collins Osula, MD, follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for screening tests and recommend a vaccine to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections. The CDC also states cervical cancer is highly preventable with regular screening tests and appropriate follow-up care. It also can be cured when found early and treated.
Cervical cancer is almost always caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Parents are reminded the HPV vaccine is recommended for preteens (both boys and girls) aged 11 to 12 years, but can be given as early as age 9 and until age 26.
No woman should die of cervical cancer. You can help prevent cervical cancer by getting screened regularly, starting at age 21.
To schedule your annual pap smear, contact Lake Erie Medical Services in Dunkirk or Fredonia at 716-672-2000.
