July is UV Awareness Month! The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes. You can reduce your risk of skin damage and skin cancer by seeking shade under an umbrella, tree, or other shelter before you need relief from the sun.

Your best bet to protect your skin is to use sunscreen or wear protective clothing when you’re outside—even when you’re in the shade. When possible, long-sleeved shirts and long pants and skirts can provide protection from UV rays. Clothes made from tightly woven fabric offer the best protection. Keep in mind that a typical T-shirt has an SPF rating lower than 15, so use other types of protection as well.

For the most protection, wear a hat with a brim all the way around that shades your face, ears, and the back of your neck. A tightly woven fabric, such as canvas, works best to protect your skin from UV rays. Avoid straw hats with holes that let sunlight through. Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk of cataracts. They also protect the tender skin around your eyes from sun exposure.

Sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays offer the best protection. Most sunglasses sold in the United States, regardless of cost, meet this standard. Wrap-around sunglasses work best because they block UV rays from sneaking in from the side.

Put on a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher before you go outside, even on slightly cloudy or cool days. Don’t forget to put a thick layer on all parts of the exposed skin. Get help for hard-to-reach places like your back. And remember, sunscreen works best when combined with other options to prevent UV damage.

Massage Services Available

Massage is open again at all DCMC Rehabilitation Service locations and the massage staff is excited to start seeing clients again. Here are a few changes to take note of:

- With new guidelines due to COVID-19, more time is needed between appointments to allow for cleaning. This will limit the number of clients that can be seen per day and there may be a need to reschedule appointments that were made prior to the pandemic.

- All clients and staff will wear masks at all times.

- Due to the cleaning requirements, table warmers are currently removed. Staff will use extra blankets and warm towels as needed based on each clients’ level of comfort.

- With frequent changes in guidelines and expectations, we are currently only offering appointments up to 3 months out. At the end of each month, the upcoming 3rd month schedule will open up. For example, at the end of June, we will open September availability.

With these changes, the massage team is confident that we can provide safe and effective massage therapy to our clients. We look forward to seeing you soon!!

This year the Door County Medical Center Auxiliary awarded $33,000 in scholarships to Door County and Algoma High School graduates and prior graduates who are currently enrolled in medical field programs. These scholarships were awarded to applicants who were able to communicate their commitment, caring, and passion about the medical profession.

Students at the high school level were selected from six schools. Their areas of study included biochemistry, physical therapy, nursing, nutrition, sonography, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, sports medicine, and medicine. Students already engaged in health sciences education included the above as well as global health and genetics. Current DCMC employees were also awarded funds in areas of health information, radiology and nursing.

“As with every year, the 2020 applicants and eventual recipients were just phenomenal,” said Deb Hogan who has headed the Auxiliary’s Scholarship Committee for six years. “We were greatly impressed with the quality of the applicants and their personal commitment to pursuing a medical field career. Our scholarships ranged from $500 to $2000,” Hogan said. The funds used to support these scholarships come from the Auxiliary’s annual Angel Ball, held each December. It is because of the dedication of Bruce Shewcuk and his Angel Ball Committee to making the Angel Ball such a huge success that the Auxiliary was able to support these students in their desire to enter or continue in the medical field. “We are so delighted to support the ambitious goals of students from our community,” noted Hogan.

Hogan’s selection committee is comprised of former educators who continue to support Door County’s educational needs. They are: Randy Watermolen, former math educator; principal Gene Jacobs, former math teacher; Scott Brunswick, former principal; and Erika May, former English literature educator. Scholarship applications are available on the DCMC Auxiliary website each January.

The following is a list of the 2020 recipients.

We wish everyone a happy Independence Day and a reminder to celebrate our nation’s independence safely. The National Safety Council advises everyone not to use any fireworks at home. They may be legal but they are not safe. If you choose to use consumer fireworks, be sure to follow the following safety tips:

- Never allow young children to handle fireworks

- Older children should use them only under close adult supervision

- Never use fireworks while impaired by drugs or alcohol

- Anyone using fireworks or standing nearby should wear protective eyewear

- Never hold lighted fireworks in your hands

- Never light them indoors

- Only use them away from people, houses and flammable material

- Never point or throw fireworks at another person

- Only light one device at a time and maintain a safe distance after lighting

- Never ignite devices in a container

- Do not try to re-light or handle malfunctioning fireworks

- Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding

- Keep a bucket of water nearby to fully extinguish fireworks that don't go off or in case of fire

- Never use illegal fireworks

Sparklers burn at about 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals. Sparklers can quickly ignite clothing, and children have received severe burns from dropping sparklers on their feet. According to the National Fire Protection Association, sparklers alone account for more than 25% of emergency room visits for fireworks injuries. For children under 5 years of age, sparklers accounted for nearly half of the total estimated injuries.

Consider using safer alternatives, such as glow sticks, confetti poppers or colored streamers. And happy Independence Day!

Door County Medical Center - Advance Directives

"Advance Directives" is a collective term for documents that inform healthcare providers about types of care and treatment that a patient wishes to have or not have. An Advance Directive speaks for the patient when he or she is unable to do so and directs the patient’s wishes regarding healthcare decisions. This can relieve the patient’s family members and friends from the burden of guessing what the patient would want to have done. Complete your Advance Directive documents and forward them to Door County Medical Center to be included in your health record.

And today Cynthia's friend Karen [around 70 years old died from Covid-19 in the Sturgeon Bay hospital. She was on a ventilator and medically induced comma for a week. And she was improving. They brought her out of the comma and removed the vent 4 days ago. Her oxygen levels kept falling. Not enough oxygen levels in the blood. She was in pretty good health until this. Rode her bicycle a lot with her husband all over town. Her husband tested positive but shows no symptoms and is doing fine. I think all will get it and some will die.

Great robotics event today at the CMC! Youngest we had at the consul was four years old!
You should take a better look at and reevaluate your physical therapy staff. They do not listen to what you have to say at all! The guy I had there ONLY wanted to talk to me about the mental aspects of pain, as in my extreme low back pain is being caused by stress, fear (being out of work, expenses, etc), and everything similar to that. He absolutely insisted it was that and had absolute disregard for that fact that my back pain is from an injury caused by being pinned between a tractor and feeder almost a decade ago. He did absolutely nothing physical at physical therapy or even remotely offered it in the entire 1 1/2 hrs I was there. I contacted my doctor and the hospital to complain and was never even contacted back to have the problem resolved. The hospital and clinical staff has been great to me but your physical therapy center is a joke.
I'm the 2000th like! lol
Dear friends, please share this post. I would love to see our community come together for this event!
Thanks for your sponsorship and for registering to be a part of our Fall Job Fair!
No one has good memories at E.R. But the Nurses and Doctors are amazing . Only thing I think could be improved is more communication with the family pertaining to what is happening . My husband was transported to Green Bay from Sturgeon and I was not told why . Had to hunt down the Dr. and asked him why and he never gave me an answer . They truly are a great group of people !
The people of Sturgeon Bay/Door County really need this, so thank you DCMC and to the donors, THANK YOU So Much!
