Oh my Heart!

With a new little one, the tests, forms and information are abundant. Family Practice with Obstetrics Physician Dr. Shawn Richmond knows this all too well! One test that all of his little patients receive is a pulse oximetry to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. Sounds big but it’s actually quite small. The test uses little sticky monitors (think of a band-aid), that are applied to a baby’s foot and hand. Don’t worry, this test is totally painless, but provides insight on their health, often before any signs and symptoms could be noticed. Pretty neat huh?

Dale Named Volunteer of the Year

Dale Named Volunteer of the Year for MHP Hospice Services

Carolyn Dale of Oskaloosa was recently named “Volunteer of the Year” for Mahaska Hospice, a service of Mahaska Health Partnership in Oskaloosa.

Dale received this honor at a Volunteer Recognition Ceremony, hosted by the Hospice & Palliative Care Association of Iowa on Sept. 13 in Urbandale. She has been volunteering with Mahaska Hospice since 2004.

According to Lisa McNulty, MHP Volunteer Coordinator for Mahaska Hospice, Dale has not only visited numerous patients, but she also volunteers in the hospice office and at the MHP Hospice Serenity House on a regular basis. “Whether she is answering the phones or visiting patients in their homes, we know we can count on Carolyn to always be a professional, courteous, and dependable volunteer.

“Many of our patients comment that they are happy to see her and are anxious for her to come for another visit.  Carolyn is a very busy retired person who is thoroughly enjoying her retirement, while at the same time giving back to her community with MHP Hospice and other organizations.  She is a caring friend to Mahaska Hospice as well as too many individuals in our community.  We are very lucky to have her and appreciate all of her valuable time that she shares with us.”
