Coronavirus Treatment – On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, Madison Memorial will begin administering the just-released COVID-19 treatment bamlanivimab. Developed by Eli Lilly and Company, this investigational medicine is comparable to the treatment that President Trump received after he contracted coronavirus last month. On Monday, November 9, 2020, the FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the use of bamlanivimab to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in adult and pediatric patients 12 and older. The procedure involves a one-time intravenous infusion, and is intended for high-risk patients at the onset of SARS-CoV-2. Bamlanivimab was shown in clinical trials to reduce COVID-19 hospitalizations and ER visits in patients who presented a high probability of potential disease progression. The treatment is not authorized for patients who are already hospitalized or who require oxygen therapy due to COVID-19. Rather, its intended use is for high-risk patients in whom the disease has not yet...

It is intelligent, but it lacks mobility, or soul, or something. Her mouth is large and finely shaped.  You can see at a glance that she is blind.  One eye is larger than the other and protrudes noticeably.  She rarely smiles.  “It was days before...

A certified nurse is a nurse who has gone on to gain additional training, skills, and experience in a specific area of specialty, becoming certified in that area after having met the standard nursing qualifications. Nursing professionals who advance themselves toward the designation of certified nurse demonstrate a willingness to continue to learn and improve, contributing to the overall excellence of our organization here at Madison Memorial. Of all of the amazing nurses who work here, 26 are certified nurses, meaning they’ve acquired specialized skills and knowledge on top of their previous nursing training.
