"Taking prescription medications of any kind, but especially antibiotics, without a specific diagnosis is an extremely bad idea," said Dale Carroll, MD, Senior Vice President, Medical Affairs and Performance Improvement, at RMH."While fears about anthrax and other diseases are understandable, the average American still has a greater chance of being killed in a car accident or hit by lightning, than dying from anthrax, based on the exposure methods we're seeing in the news."Dr. Carroll suggests the following: · Talk to your physician any time you feel sick.The flu and pneumonia are more dangerous than anthrax this time of year, especially for older adults. · Get a flu vaccine and ask your physician if you are a candidate for the pneumonia vaccine."By taking antibiotics as a preventive measure, people run the risk of limiting the effectiveness of those drugs later on if they need to be treated for a real illness.Secondarily, if consumers are buying drugs online or crossing the borders to buy cheaper drugs, there is some risk with regard to quality control issues for the medications," said Dr. Carroll.Dr. Carroll also suggests that people follow the precautions the United States Postal Service has outlined with regard to opening strange packages and try to avoid jumping to conclusions about people and events they encounter.Nevertheless, he recommends that people find out as much as they can about chemical and biological agents that could be introduced into the general population."As people explore this issue, I think they will see the threats, while real, can be limited as the government and other agencies increase their vigilance," said Dr. Carroll.

Dr. Carroll noted that preventing hospital-acquired infections is a top priority for RMH.
"We focus globally on hygiene, including hand-washing, as well as infection prevention protocols," he said. "We also have teams who actively address each type of hospital-acquired infection. We continuously review our infection-prevention processes and identify opportunities to improve."
Dr. Carroll applauded the teamwork between the hospital-based radiologists and community physicians for the lower rate of unneeded scanning.
"Our radiologists are diligent and work with other physicians to discuss what scans are ordered and how to keep patients safe from unnecessary exposure to radiation," he said.
RMH also received recognition from Consumer Reports for a low mortality rate, meaning fewer patients admitted for any reason die while in the hospital than the national average.
Dr. Carroll added that as a member of the Sentara Health System, RMH benefits from the sharing of best practices in quality, patient safety and process improvement with the nine other not-for-profit hospitals in the system.
"Learning from each other what has worked well and how to do better benefits not only RMH patients, but the many thousands of patients served by all Sentara hospitals in their respective communities," he said. "Sentara's commitment to patient safety resulted in the development of an independent company, Healthcare Performance Improvement, whom RMH engaged several years ago to help us on our patient safety journey.
"Reports such as this underscore our commitment to patient safety and highlight the progress we've made," he continued.
