Van Uden Center Now Offers Hydrocolontherapy

Corona, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

Van Uden Center is proud to announce that they are now offering hydrocolontherapy at their facility. This treatment uses water to clean and detoxify the colon, removing toxins, improving digestion and relieving the entire body.

Hydrocolontherapy is a perfect complement to any program of weight loss, and patients can lose up to seven pounds in the first session. The treatment has many other benefits, including improving vascular and lymphatic circulation, stabilizing bowel functions, removing gas and improving digestive functions.

Hydrocolontherapy is also very useful in the removal of toxins such as anesthetics, antibiotics, drugs, alcohol and cigarettes and can be a great tool in rehabilitation programs. The treatment is also ideal before any cosmetic procedures, including both facial and body treatments.

Over time, toxins can adhere to the inner wall of the colon and cause auto-intoxication. Symptoms of auto-intoxication can include indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, migraines, ulcers and more. Hydrocolontherapy eliminates the toxins that cause auto-intoxication and leads to a healthier digestive system.

Kemptville District Hospital Excels in Ontario Laboratory Accreditation Audit

Kemptville, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

The laboratory at Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) did exceedingly well at its recent accreditation audit, achieving a score of more than 97 percent.

With a staff of six, the KDH lab provides round the clock service, analyzing blood, urine and tissue samples for patients in every unit of the hospital, from its emergency department to interim long-term care.

As well as being a requirement for licensing, the accreditation audit confirms that we are providing safe and effective lab services for our patients, said Anna Schlieper, who oversees the operation of the KDH lab on behalf of the Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA). EORLA is the laboratory operator for its 16 member hospitals in the Champlain LHIN, including KDH.

Ontario Laboratory Accreditation (OLA) conducted the audit, sending a team of quality system and technical experts to assess the KDH lab in terms of 464 requirements pertaining to all facets of lab operations. The requirements encompassed policies and procedures for collecting specimens, point-of-care testing (i.e., at the patients bedside), transfusions and more.

The audit team reviewed the KDH labs quality systems, ensuring that the correct policies and procedures were in place and evaluating how staff carried them out. In addition to inspecting the lab, interviewing lab staff and watching them work, the audit team visited the hospitals medical and surgical units, assessing the knowledge of nursing staff about various activities related to lab processes.

The audit was conducted the second week of September, 2013. The KDH lab subsequently received formal recognition of its success in the audit through accreditation to the OLA 15189PlusTM standard.

The KDH labs audit score of 97 percent is a testament to the commitment of its laboratory staff. Everybody worked really hard to get ready for the audit its a fantastic team, enthused Anna Schlieper. We couldnt ask for more!

KDHs Vice President of Clinical Services, Catherine Van Vliet, agreed: The members of our lab team are exceptionally dedicated. In fact, four out of our six lab staff have been at KDH for 10 years or more.

Providing 24/7 lab services means there is always a Laboratory Technologist on call. And sometimes that means driving back and forth from home to the hospital three times in a night. However, its all in a days work for KDH lab staff. I love being a part of the team at KDH, said Laboratory Technologist Sue Flynn. I enjoy my job and the sense of dedication to patients that we share.

The laboratory team plays a vital role at KDH, added Van Vliet: Lab results are important in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Approximately 70 to 80 percent of medical decisions are based on the results of laboratory tests. At KDH, our lab is vital for the smooth running of the hospital and for providing the best patient care.

Committed to building healthier communities, we are a model of hospital-led integrated health services within the provincial health system.
