Orange Regional Medical Center Patients Get a Lift

July 22nd, 2009

Middletown, NY - Orange Regional Medical Center has invested $300,000 in new technology and equipment to increase patients' ease of mobility, safety and satisfaction during their hospital stay and decrease manual lifting of patients by clinical staff. The equipment is comprised of mechanical lifting aids and strong fabric tools used to ensure a patient's safety and comfort during transportation while protecting caregivers' backs when lifting and moving patients from beds, chairs, and to a variety of other positions.

Orange Regional employees Elfrieda Roze-Auinger, Roxanna Pantano, Lisa Haynes and Kate Salvati.

"We now have the ability to take a bedridden patient and allow them more comfort, freedom and mobility," said Kathy Guido, Orange Regional's Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer. "Many patients feel embarrassed when nursing staff have to lift and carry them during their stay. The ability to regain a sense of control and dignity is a huge factor in patient satisfaction and promoting an environment where patients can heal, physically and emotionally. This is very important to all staff at Orange Regional."

Additionally, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses, nursing assistants and orderlies were noted as among the top three employee groups with the highest number of injuries while at work. Healthcare workers suffer one of the highest rates of strains and sprains (especially in the back, neck and shoulders) due to overexertion related to lifting and moving patients. This new equipment further benefits our community by reducing the number of injuries to the clinical staff which provides them a greater opportunity to deliver quality healthcare to our patients.

Robotic Surgery Available at Orange Regional Medical Center

July 7th, 2009

Patient cart front view with instrumentsMiddletown, New York — Orange Regional Medical Center has enhanced its surgical services with the new da Vinci Si HD 3D Surgical System located at the Arden Hill Campus in Goshen. This state-of-the-art, advanced technology integrates 3D high definition endoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon's eyes and hands into the surgical field with extreme clarity. This innovative technology enhances a surgeon's ability to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures, thereby enabling patients to recover more quickly and with fewer adverse side effects. Initially, this technology will be used for surgeries related to urology and gynecology.

"The da Vinci Si HD 3D System provides surgeons more than twice the viewing resolution and 20 percent more viewing area. This means improved clarity and detail of tissue and anatomy which is critical when performing delicate dissections or reconstructive procedures," said Jonathan Schiller, Orange Regional's Vice President, Arden Hill Campus. "This means a better operation for the patient with reduced complications, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time."

The da Vinci Si HD system cannot be programmed nor can it make decisions on its own. The systemDresden OR requires that every surgical maneuver be performed with direct input from the surgeon. Studies show that patients whose surgical procedures are performed using this robotic technology may benefit from shorter hospital stays, reduced risk of infection, less blood loss and a quicker return to normal daily activities.

To learn more about Orange Regional Medical Center's services or to find a robotic surgeon, call the Orange Regional Health Connection at 1-888-321-ORMC (6762) or visit www.ormc.org.
