Walker Baptist received its sixth consecutive "A" Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade and was one of only two hospitals in the Greater Birmingham area to do so.

"Our ‘A’ grade for patient safety, in particular amid a global pandemic, reflects the resilience of our staff and their unwavering commitment to excellence in patient care delivery. Having earned our sixth consecutive ‘A’ grade demonstrates the consistency of our patient safety protocols and, to me, underscores that our hospital will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever,” said Mike Neuendorf, Chief Executive Officer of Walker Baptist.

COVID-19 and Your Health

Here is new information from the CDC for those who have been fully vaccinated.

The American Cancer Society recommends that a patient have a colonoscopy starting at age 50. If the risk factors are high, doctors may recommend an earlier start to testing and more frequent follow up tests.

A colonoscopy has two important objectives:

1. To detect precancerous polyps in the colon and rectum, which can easily be removed.
2. To detect the presence of colon cancer in its early stages.

Start thinking of a colonoscopy as a preventative measure and not only a discovery tool.

Most people do not have serious problems after being vaccinated. Side effects may feel like flu and even affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. These symptoms are normal and signal your body’s immune response to the vaccine to help you prevent future infections. Learn more at go.usa.gov/xsTPK.

Colon Cancer screening is part of overall health and wellness. Screening usually starts around the age of 45 to 50 for most people. Colon Cancer doesn’t have a common symptom, so the best way to prevent it is to be screened. Be sure to speak with your primary physician about getting screened.

I’m hoping that this portal will make signing up easier for those trying to get the vaccine. Please keep monitoring the Department of Health for changes.

I received my second dose of the Pfizer Covid 19 vaccine this afternoon. I don’t miss the traffic in Birmingham, but I am thankful for UAB Medicine for allowing me to finish my doses at their campus. I’m doing well and actually have less injection site pain this dose. My brother received his second dose, and my father will go tomorrow to receive his. There are so many unused doses around the country including Alabama. They are expanding the early access to certain groups. I urge those that qualify to seek out the vaccine. The Walker Community is seeing a slowing of cases at the moment but the virus isn’t going to go away. With the country so divided, we still have a common focus on getting past this pandemic. The vaccine is one of our most effective weapons against the virus. As always, please follow the CDC and the Department of Health for updates. I’ll continue to post updates as well as things change.
