We recently shared the story of two outstanding MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital nurses — Kaylen Dodson and Danielle Klinski — who went above and beyond to ensure the safety of a mother, Shalanda Cooper-Howard, and her daughter during a difficult delivery.

Today, on her daughter’s 1st birthday, we are thrilled to share this beautiful reunion photograph with you! 🎉

#ICYMI, here’s their story as told by an MUSC teammate:
“During a complicated delivery that threatened the mother's life, Danielle and Kaylen exemplified what health care should look like, working together to plan for a safe delivery and rearranging personal schedules to ensure the utmost compassionate care for both mother and child. ⁠

"The multiple minds involved in this allowed for a successful delivery. It really was a wonderful example of interdisciplinary care with extraordinary care by both Kaylen and Danielle and all others who provided care for this family.”

Now, these four are forever connected! 🥳

Regular screening and vaccination are best defense against cervical cancer, MUSC Health specialist says 01/11/2022

Regular screening and vaccination are best defense against cervical cancer, MUSC Health specialist says

"Both the HPV vaccine and the Pap test are life-saving measures for women and should not be ignored," MUSC Health's Dr. Ashlyn Savage says. "We have a sound understanding that infection by HPV is a necessary prerequisite for developing cervical cancer. Other risk factors can further increase the likelihood of cervical cancer, but that critical first step is infection with HPV."

Regular screening and vaccination are best defense against cervical cancer, MUSC Health specialist says Every year, more than 12,000 women get cervical cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Of those cases, up to 93% are preventable.

Please note that due to demand caused by the surge of delta and omicron variants, there may be longer-than-average wait times at MUSC Health’s COVID-19 testing sites. In addition, the labs that process COVID-19 tests are operating at or above capacity. Patients should expect their COVID-19 test results within 48 to 96 hours of testing.

If it has been more than 48 hours since your test, you can check its status. Please note that our COVID-19 helpline cannot provide testing results.

More than half a million dollars of the donated money will go to scholarships for MUSC students. The MUSC Alumni Association donated $450,000, with a portion dedicated to enhancing diversity across MUSC’s entire student body. Donors inspired by the generosity of MUSC’s alumni gave an additional $80,000 to a variety of scholarships at MUSC’s six colleges. #ChangingWhatsPossible

“Diversity and inclusion are central to our mission and pursuit of excellence,” said MUSC President David J. Cole, M.D., FACS, “and increasing scholarship support is critical to reaching this goal. We are grateful to the Alumni Association, our alumni and the community for making scholarships a priority on Giving Tuesday.”

“Genetic testing still harkens back to the days when it was scary, and it was expensive, and it was a problem and people were worried about doing it. I want people to understand that genetic testing is something that helps with your health. It's like any test that's scary. Getting a mammogram is scary. You might have a cancer. Getting a colonoscopy is scary, and we have to have a polyp removed. All these tests can be scary, but they're in your best interest.” —Kevin Hughes, M.D., this week’s podcast guest on Advance with MUSC Health! Listen here:

SC leaders and hospitals say don’t come to emergency room for COVID-19 testing 01/10/2022

SC leaders and hospitals say don’t come to emergency room for COVID-19 testing

MUSC Health's Dr. Christine Carr said some health care systems are facing staffing shortages due to workers testing positive for COVID-19 themselves.

“We’re just seeing this trickle down from staff being out sick and inundated with patients who typically wouldn’t come to the ED but are coming to the ED to get tested,” she said.

To ease the burden on the state’s healthcare systems, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) remind residents that most COVID-positive individuals with mild to moderate symptoms can safely recover at home without emergency medical attention, and anyone needing a COVID-19 test should visit a testing site or pharmacy instead of an emergency room.

Benefits of Partial Knee Replacement 01/08/2022

Benefits of Partial Knee Replacement

For a growing number of patients, partial knee replacement surgery is becoming a popular alternative to total knee replacement, an MUSC Health orthopaedist says.

“Partial knee replacement, or unicompartmental knee surgery, has advantages for patients whose osteoarthritis is limited only to one area of the knee,” says Dr. Erik Hansen, assistant professor of orthopaedics, arthritis and joint reconstruction at MUSC Health. “With less pain and a quicker recovery, it is proving to be an effective option that has positive, long-term results.”
