Venue Size

WASHINGTON, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) congratulates the emergency departments named to the Emergency Quality Network (E-QUAL) Honor Roll for significant achievement in stroke treatment or opioid use disorder quality improvement metrics and performance data sharing.

"The E-Qual Honor Roll represents best in class efforts by emergency departments across the country to standardize and continuously improve the quality of patient care delivered on the frontlines," said Gillian Schmitz, MD, FACEP, president of ACEP. "These leaders demonstrate that even despite the unpredictable nature of the pandemic, data-driven care transformation can enhance treatment approaches and save lives."

The 2021 Honor Roll awardees are recognized for their achievements as top performers or most improved in metrics associated with opioid-related treatment or stroke care.

More than 1,800 EDs and over 39,000 emergency medical providers have participated in E-QUAL collaboratives to date. Over the last seven years, E-QUAL learning collaboratives have resulted in more efficient and better care and better outcomes for patients, including:

GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - A woman who was brutally attacked by a dog in March in Abbeville County has returned home.

Kyleen Waltman was mauled by three dogs outside a home in Honea Path when she was walking from a friend’s home to her mother’s house.

Waltman had both of her arms amputated and part of her colon removed. In an update on Wednesday, her family said Kyleen has now switched to outpatient surgeries.

“It has been rough and we’ve been trying to get her settled into her new life,” her sister, Amy Wynne, posted on GoFundMe.

Wynne said they are trying to get a home care nurse for Waltman. She will have to go back to the hospital in ten days for more checkups and procedures.

Below is the full update:

“Kyleen did get to come home. It has been rough and we’ve been trying to get her settled into her new life. She is a talker, lol..She is running our poor mama raged as the least. She is doing outpatient surgeries now. She had to have her shoulder re grafted and her leg they’re holding off on again, it is healing but they have to pull her muscle up from her calf and see if that is gonna work. They did graft around the would to see if it’ll take and it did. They don’t want to do both surgeries together so they did the shoulder which was 3+ hours and her leg will take upwards of 9 hours or better. She’s coming back home after recovery. It’s hard on the family at the moment because we have no outside help, she has been denied for Medicaid and disability. So we have to do it all for her. Mama takes the brunt of it because kyleen lives with mama. Y’all please pray she will be able to get an in home care nurse because at this moment she don’t have one. Kyleen has to go back to the hospital in 10 days for more check ups and to maybe get the sick vac off her arms. Maybe they’ll be able to stitch her leg up then. Thank all of ya’ll for being patient with us at this time.”

Amy Wynne

The GoFundMe for Waltman has raised more than $261,000.

Transit service debuts today as McCormick Area Transit System (Matrans) accepts passengers in Abbeville. The official kickoff of the newly established service was Monday in Due West.

Matrans selected Abbeville, Due West and Calhoun Falls as centers for the service as all three communities have medical facilities. Matrans director Becky Moon said Monday approved trips include doctor appointments, grocery store visits, essential shopping, pharmacy visits and trips to and from work sites.

Service in Calhoun Falls is set for Thursday. Included with the system is a “Big Circle,” an optional day of service, Moon said. The bus can start in Abbeville, travel to Calhoun Falls and Due West and then drive to a bus stop in Honea Path to meet the Anderson’s Electric City Transit bus so that people can transfer systems to visit Anderson. Later that afternoon, a Matrans vehicle will meet the Electric City bus to take Abbeville County residents back to their homes.

A “park and ride” system is being considered, she said. Matrans would need a common area for people to park their vehicles to take the bus to another area in the county or to Anderson via Electric City transit.

Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the National Rural Transit Assistance Program, fares will be free through December 2022, she said.

Service is available to people of all ages from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Moon said. The service area is a 5-mile radius from the center of town. Days when service is not available include New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, she said.

The goal is for Matrans to schedule at least 70 trips per month. However, she said Matrans is prepared for 300 trips per month. The system will need time to grow, nevertheless, a sustainable project would be from 25 to 30 trips per day per community.

People who want to schedule trips should call Matrans at 864-446-6415 by 2 p.m. the day before pickup. Moon said Matrans only has so many seats in the vehicles, so if people schedule at the last minute the bus might already be full.

Matrans will need the address of the home and a working telephone number of the passenger. She said it will also need the name and address of the location of the drop and how long the passenger expects to be in or at their appointment.

Callers should indicate the number in their party and if any passengers will require a wheelchair lift or other assistance, she said. All Matrans vehicles are ADA-compliant.

Flyers about the service have been distributed to businesses in service areas, Moon said.

Drivers covering the areas are employees of Matrans and are familiar with the service areas, she said. Matrans will be able to contact passengers for additional details concerning the exact locations of pick-ups or drop-offs.

ABBEVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - An Abbeville County woman who was mauled by three dogs is still fighting for her life, according to her family.

Kyleen Waltman was viciously attacked outside of a home in Honea Path on March 21.

The family shared an update on Kyleen’s GoFundMe page Monday, March 21 saying she has a spinal cord injury in addition to her other injuries. They say she is still in very serious condition and is being closely monitored.

The family said doctors are keeping her sedated so Kyleen doesn’t aggravate her spinal cord by trying to move.

We’re told Kyleen is still on the ventilator. She is doing most of the work herself, however, her blood pressure keeps going high and her oxygen drops low.

On Tuesday, March 29, the family said doctors woke Kyleen up and she was able to see and talk to her daughters and mom.

Kyleen was then taken to surgery where she spent five hours because of a slight fever and showing signs of an infection.

We’re told Kyleen was going to be able to get a prosthetic on her right arm, however, due to the infection, doctors had to remove her arm all the way to her shoulder.

Kyleen’s sister said she did well throughout most of the night but had to eventually be sedated and put back on life support.

The family said on April 4 that Kyleen has been fully woken up by doctors and made aware of the injuries to her arms. She had a great deal of anxiety and was sedated once again.

Kyleen’s sister said, “The lord has brought her this far for a reason. Her story is not done... She’s still fighting. Prayers are working and she’s healing slowly. We just have to wait and allow God”

Read the full update here:

Monday, April 4

I’m sorry this is kind of late but it’s been hectic here lately.. Kyleen has been fully woken up and the doctors told her about her arms but, it caused her a great deal of a anxiety, so they sedated her. Her blood pressure is still very and she is running a fever of 102+ her oxygen levels keep falling so she’s back on the ventilator. Mama says it’s like she’s giving up. Before ya’ll go assuming we as her family are not giving up. The lord has brought her this far for a reason. Her story is not done. Now they have took off everything on the arms that now she can not have regular prosthetics. So here we are trying to figure out how to keep her from thinking negative thoughts about her life. I understand that for 38 years she’s had arms and now she doesn’t, how she’s thinking. She’s still fighting. Prayers are working and slowly she healing. We just have to wait and allow God and time to do their there. I appreciate all the comments and prayers. Please just keep her and us in your prayers. I will update again when I have more information.

Tuesday, March 29

“Blood pressure jumped up to 290/197 and her heartbeat up to 197 beats. She’s no longer breathing on her own oxygen levels dropped to 50. They did a scan of her lungs and they’re full of fluid. They are giving her different medications to see if she will pee the fluids out. The doctor doesn’t know if it’s pneumonia or not. The power of our Lord Jesus Christ is powerful. I ask that when you say your prayers tonight please say an extra one for mi myster and my Mama. My sister’s body has been through so much and physically and mentally my Mama is having a hard time. Please pray Jesus keeps his hands on Kyleen and pulls her through this. Again thank you all for everything…”

Sunday, March 27

“I just wanted to thank everyone that has prayed and donated to help my sister. It’s been a long week. My mama is having a difficult time with all this. If everyone would also keep her in your prayers that would be great. She has been by Kyleen’s side since day one. Kyleen still has a ways to go. The doctor told us that they are watching her left leg because it has a lot of dead tissue, it was worse than they originally thought. We are praying they don’t have to amputate it. She does have a spinal injury which we didn’t know until Friday he told us they are also keeping her sedated so she doesn’t aggravate it by trying to move. That’s why they haven’t woken her up yet. They still haven’t taken the ventilator off her. She is doing most of the work herself it’s just her blood pressure keeps going really high and her oxygen drops low. She still doesn’t know what has happened. Thank you all for helping whether it be by prayer or monetarily. Just please keep praying and I ask again to keep my mama Diane Jonson also in your prayers. I will have another update when we know more. Thank you!!”
