LAKELAND - We are pleased to announce that J. Scott Swygert, M.D., a Watson Clinic, LLP, hospitalist,

"I am honored to help lead LRMC's continuing effort to provide the highest quality medical care to the people of Central Florida," said Dr. Swygert. "We will continue developing our newly implemented electronic health record to optimize physician and staff workflow, identify at-risk patients before they have an event, and incorporate best practices in both quality and efficiency of care."
As a hospitalist, Dr. Swygert is part of a Lakeland Regional team of physicians who treat patients from the time they are admitted at Lakeland Regional until they are discharged.

He has also assumed leadership roles on numerous committees, to include utilization review and medical records. Dr. Swygert was instrumental in Lakeland Regional's comprehensive electronic health record implementation - leading, training and communicating with more than 400 physicians before, during and after its go-live in June of 2012.

Dr. Jeffrey Swygert, the director of in-patient medicine at the Medical Center's Watson Clinic, determined that the man's calf was infected with flesh-eating disease (or necrotizing fasciitis).Swygert started the man on intravenous doxycycline, cefazolin and tobramycin for seven days.
Swygert had seen a wound like this about five or six years earlier, involving a related organism.His experience came in handy, because the drugs most commonly used to treat the most common causes of skin infections, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus, would not have worked on this organism.
The man wasn't infectious, and he was released after a week with oral doxycycline and cephalexin.He later required physical therapy and a skin graft to cover the wound.
Swygert stresses that the stingray was not carrying this organism."It has nothing to do with the stingray itself, " says Swygert.
If any signs of infection appears, says Swygert, seek medical attention immediately.
