marlob@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - Jody Dembowski doesn't know why, but something about her seems to attract older people. "It never fails - if I'm waiting somewhere, an older person will invariably sit next to me and we'll start talking," she said. Whatever the connection, it works well for her in her work as a registered nurse at Williamsport Retirement Village, where Dembowski was recently named Registered Nurse of the Year. Nominated by her peers, Dembowski was honored in late October at a ceremony hosted by Directors of Nursing Association of Maryland for Washington, Frederick and Carroll counties.

TRI-STATE - Some hospitals in the Tri-State area are feeling the sting of a national nursing shortage. With 680 nurses, Washington County Hospital's vacancy rate is about 7 percent, said Mary Towe, vice president and chief nursing officer at Washington County Hospital. To help offset the shortage, hospital officials plan to hire 30 nurses this spring - many from local colleges and universities. Michael Groves, vice president of patient care services at City Hospital in Martinsburg, W.Va.

TRI-STATE - Jessica Shatzer's son woke her Monday about 5 a.m. from inside the womb, and little more than seven hours later, the Greencastle, Pa., woman became a mother again at Chambersburg (Pa.) Hospital for what she says was the third and last time. "This is it," said Shatzer, who at 12:11 p.m. was the first mother to give birth in 2007 in Franklin County, hospital charge nurse Cristy Montgomery said. Less than an hour after giving birth to a 7-pound, 12 1/2-ounce son, Maurisio, Shatzer was relieved from what she said had been a "rough" pregnancy.

Commissioners' decision demeans kids, nurses To the editor: I'm writing as the parent of two children in our county school system, concerning our County Commissioners recent decision to cut the school nurse budget entirely. One of my daughters has Type 1 diabetes and must regularly monitor her blood sugar and inject insulin to stay healthy and avoid life-threatening, long-term complications. If she does not keep her blood sugar under tight control, she can go into a coma now that requires immediate medical attention.

I've read a lot about the new hospital and expect that it will be built at Robinwood and will be a fine facility. I would like to comment on something that has been largely ignored in the discussion of the new hospital building and, to a larger extent, the geographical considerations of the site. A hospital is a building. Care is given by people working there. Where is there any discussion of the caring people who staff the current building and the staff required to staff the new hospital?

RANSON, W.Va. - In an effort to decrease patient wait time in the emergency department, Jefferson Memorial Hospital recently added a mobile care unit outside the emergency department. The unit, which is staffed by an emergency medicine trained nurse practitioner supported by additional nursing staff, adds four treatment rooms to the emergency department. Patients who come to the emergency department with less serious conditions are being treated in the new area. "The goal is to get our patients treated more quickly and then released, which should ultimately improve patient satisfaction," said Tina Coad, executive consultant for emergency services.

County officials have distributed packets to a dozen skilled nursing providers seeking information about the possible sale of the nursing home, according to Franklin County Commissioner David Keller. “At least two vendors have been in to tour the facility, and I believe a couple other tours are in the works,” Keller said Thursday.
