REGION: Health fair highlights innovations
leadart

Riverside County Regional Medical Center’s first annual Health Innovations Fair was held Thursday, March 12.

To make health care accessible to residents across the county, the regional medical center, located in Moreno Valley, has a mobile health clinic housed in a a 40-foot van. It makes regular monthly visits to underserved communities to provide medical services to those who don't have health insurance or transportation.

Riverside County Supervisor Marion Ashley touted the hospital’s national recognition as a stroke intervention center of excellence and its success in treating and curing hepatitis C.

“Just a couple of years ago, few imagined we could cure hepatitis C,” Ashley said. “Now we’re ... sparing our patients from the consequences of this debilitating, chronic disease, like liver transplants and possible death.”

Other programs make phone calls to patients who have been released from the hospital to make sure they are continuing to recover at home and provide free services at home or by phone to people who have asthma.

“There’s been a change in the paradigm from providing reactive sick care to providing proactive preventive and community care,” Leung said. “If we can encourage health in a seamless way, we will leave a legacy of healthy lives.”

These nurses see patients on what could easily be the worst day of their lives.

The five-woman team of specially trained RNs collect what are commonly known as rape kits, which involve a highly invasive exam performed as soon as possible after a sexual assault. For them, collecting the kits is a full-time job.

They're forensic examiners with the Sexual Assault Response Team at Riverside County Regional Medical Center.

The team works out of a tiny exam room at the Moreno Valley hospital, providing services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"Generally, it's a very, very hard field to recruit for because – think about it – who wants to see victims of sexual assault all the time?" said Gloria Davis, the nurse practitioner who manages the team. "It's mentally and physically an exhausting job."

Many nurses need to move on after two or three years, she said. But for others, it becomes a passion.
