Physical therapy returns to county

by Stephen Scalf
When Nicholas County Hospital ceased operation on May 12, 2014 the community lost convenient access to many medical services, including physical and occupational therapy, and phlebotomy.
This past Monday, Jan. 12, 2015 in an effort to return these services to the communitt, Harrison Memorial Hospital opened an outpatient services clinic in the office formerly occupied by Dr. Osias Villaflor's medical practice.
No strangers to the community, HMH physical therapist Betsy Kelley and office coordinator/physical therapy technician Brenda Letcher are thrilled to be back in Nicholas County.
Initially, they will be seeing patients in Carlisle three days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with plans to expand to five days a week as the patient load increases.
“Patients who currently seek physical and occupational therapy will now have the advantage of receiving treatment closer to home,” said Don Wynn, director of ancillary services at HMH. “Physical and occupational therapies are usually ongoing processes, with multiple visits required. A more convenient location for Nicholas County patients can make a significant positive impact on our patients’ busy schedules.”
Referred patients can also experience the convenience of phlebotomy services at this Carlisle location. A phlebotomist will be available Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
“We’ll have an HMH phlebotomist on site to draw blood. Those blood samples will then be transported to the HMH Laboratory in Cynthiana for same-day analysis,” said Wynn.
The HMH Outpatient Services clinic is located at 2300 Concrete Road in Carlisle, and the phone number is 859-289-3338. The clinic services are provided by referral only; therefore, if you are in need of physical or occupational therapy, ask your primary care physician about a referral today.

Pair of Rear-end Accidents


Tuesday afternoon brought two rear-end accidents, with one accident scene barely cleared before the call went out for the second.
The first accident occurred at the intersection of Main Street and Walnut Street as Stephanie Hernandez of Dixie Highway stopped in traffic to make a left hand turn. The driver of the car behind her simply did not realize that Mrs. Hernandez had stopped and hit the rear of the vehicle.
Hazmat crews were still cleaning up vehicle fluids and a rollback truck was removing the damaged vehicle when a second call came through dispatch of another rear-end accident near 5855 Moorefield Road.
As with the first accident, the driver of the trailing vehicle failed to realize that the driver in front had slowed to a stop.
At least one passenger was transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation.
