Local surgeon to discuss osteoarthritis of the hand and wrist

David Napoli, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon with Blue Ridge Bone and Joint, will discuss the causes and treatment options for osteoarthritis of the hand in a free presentation at the Pardee Health Education Center on Tue., Sept. 21, from 1 until 2:30 p.m. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage in one or more joints. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis. Among the approximately 100 different types of arthritis conditions, osteoarthritis is the most common, affecting over 20 million people in the United States. Osteoarthritis occurs more frequently as we age. Napoli specializes in hand and wrist disorders and injuries, as well as general orthopaedic surgery.  He serves on the medical staff at Pardee Hospital.  Napoli will offer time for questions after the presentation. Registration for this free presentation is required by calling 1-866-790-WELL (9355). -CJP

SHHH...Silent Hospitals Help Healing

Pardee Hospital implemented a new quiet time for patients on Sept. 7 - Silent Hospitals Help Healing (SHHH) is a unique quiet time that has been put in place on all units except PATHS at Pardee, Joint Camp and the Women and Children’s unit. Quiet time is everyday from 2-3:30 p.m. and patients are encouraged to rest and nap for an uninterrupted 90 minutes while lights are dimmed, voices lowered and visiting time limited. This program has been adopted by many hospitals nation-wide and has been confirmed successful. An uninterrupted time period will allow patients to catch up on much needed rest which will ultimately accelerate healing time. By participating in a specific 'quiet time' Pardee Hospital can create a calm and relaxing environment for our patients to heal. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping all noises to a minimum during 2-3:30 p.m. -L
