Hearing fireworks in your neighborhood? You’re not alone. – Orange County Register

The Orange County Burn Center, located at OC Global Medical Center in Santa Ana, sees about 20 to 30 patients during a typical July 4th holiday, Dunkelman said. So far, doctors there have not yet seen any fireworks-related injuries, she said, but this year the staff has another factor to consider: coronavirus. “People are afraid to come to emergency rooms,” she said, adding that the hospital is taking proper precautions. “I don’t want people to delay their treatment because they’re afraid of COVID. Burns scar very quickly if they’re not treated.” She also wonders if the pandemic might help to stem the number of fireworks injuries. “Maybe there will be fewer with people staying home and not having big parties because of COVID,” she said.

As the economy continues to struggle and businesses are put on hold, more and more people find themselves out of work, but there are some industries that are hiring. Dr. Sumanta Chaudhuri, KPC health’s chief medical officer, joined ABC7 via Skype to discuss jobs in healthcare. “This is a perfect time if you’re thinking about a career change to jump into the health care industry because there’s such a need,” said Chaudhuri. “There’s positions in the clinical side, as well as the non-clinical side. And if somebody has no experience in non-clinical side, KPC Health loves to partner with people and promote education within the employee ranks so people can rise. If they have a desire to eventually become clinical, we would love that. If they want to stay on the administrative side, there is support for that as well.”

2 Reliable, FDA-Approved Tests Emerge From Glut Of Coronavirus Antibody Tests – CBS LA

Tests for COVID-19 can be hard to come by, but there are dozens of tests on the market that test for antibodies. Most antibody tests on the market got emergency usage approval and are not FDA approved, pathologists say, so the frequently produce false positives. “Maybe 60, 70% of the tests that have hit the market are unreliable,” said Dr. John Heydt of KPC Health Global. Just this week, two more antibody tests have hit the market and are considered to be much more reliable, and both are FDA approved — the Roche Test and the Abbott Labs serum serological test. Heydt says OC Global Medical Center will begin using the Abbott Labs test, which can tell patients if they’ve been exposed and when they got the infection.

These 10 Inland Empire medical workers are on front lines of coronavirus fight – The Press-Enterprise

At Inland Empire hospitals, the struggle against the novel coronavirus pandemic is up close and personal. Doctors, nurses, medical assistants, cleaning staff, engineers retrofitting facilities to hold the virus in patients’ rooms and more are working to stop a disease that’s already killed more than 74,000 people in the United States. As the coronavirus pandemic began in the United States, nurse Lauren Baca guessed her floor of Hemet Global Medical Center would end up being the COVID-19 quarantine floor. Hospital workers spent a day converting the floor. Each room got its own antechamber to allow staff to put on or remove protective gear while treating COVID-19 patients. And the new ventilation system is loud. “We do have to sort of yell at the patients so they can hear at us and they have to yell at us back,” said Baca, 33. Like many in her field, the San Jacinto resident hopes the public stays the course with social distancing and other measures to slow the coronavirus’s spread. “I know it sucks. Believe me, I’m one of these people who would love to go and get a haircut. I’m about to cut it off myself,” Baca said. “In New York, they literally can’t give people the care they want to, because they’re so overwhelmed. I don’t want us to get to that point.” Menifee resident Dr. John Carvalho avoids leaving his house, other than going to work on the COVID-19 quarantine floor at Hemet Global Medical Center. “We’ve all had to adapt to being a thousand times more conscious about what kind of environment we’re in, what condition our gowns are in, how we’re taking them on and off,” said Carvalho, 34, one of the resident physicians on the floor. “It almost becomes a caricature of how we were trained.” He wears N95 respirator masks, along with goggles, a plastic face shield, a surgical cap and waterproof shoes. Despite all that, Carvalho limits how much time he spends in public, even when getting groceries or meals. “I can’t ever know fully how much I would be exposing other people,” he said. “We try to make one trip a week or less, order things ahead of time to just pick up or just get it delivered.”
