Time to put down your phone and pay attention; April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, cell phones are a dangerous distraction. In 2019, distracted driving caused more than 3,000 deaths. While this doesn’t mean that cellphones are solely responsible, they do play a large role in distracting drivers.
Texting or reading a text message takes your eyes off the road for five seconds. If you're driving at 55 mph, that's long enough to cover a football field.
Don't use your phone while driving. Pull over to send messages, use 'Driving Mode' on your phone to silence messages or make sure your phone is out of reach to avoid temptation.
Stay safe and keep your eyes on the road!
Occupational therapy helps people with health challenges regain, develop or improve skills to participate in daily life – safely.
Performing simple tasks can become difficult after an injury, disability or illness. These activities may include personal care, household responsibilities, education, work or social interaction.
Occupational therapists (OTs) help people participate in these activities with confidence. They also help individuals with disabilities or chronic health issues adapt their homes and routines so they can participate more fully in daily life.
OTs use a holistic approach to care, taking a person’s physical, emotional, cognitive, psychological and social wellness into account during treatment in order to help them confidently return to the lives they love. #OTMonth
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Patrol in 2019, a total of 843 bicyclists were killed in crashes involving motor vehicles. So, whether you’re driving to work or cycling, there are safety practices you can follow to prevent injuries.
For bicyclists: Always wear a helmet! Make sure to wear reflective clothing, no matter the time of day, so drivers can see you. You should always watch for pedestrians and make sure you announce yourself before passing them.
For drivers: Always be aware of bicyclists on the road! Give cyclists plenty of room when passing. To avoid crashes, you should always check blind spots before turning.
Physicians bring compassionate care, exceptional clinical skill and valuable partnerships that offer hope to our patients, families and colleagues. Thank you for your tireless dedication to healing and recovery. #NationalDoctorsDay #DoctorsDay #DoctorsDay2022

Smoke detectors are vital fire-protection devices that can drastically reduce injuries and deaths if maintained monthly. In 2020, fire stations responded to 379,500 residential fires nationwide, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Remember to test your smoke detectors once a month, change their batteries once a year and install new devices every 10 years.
Amputation, the surgical removal of a limb, is the result of a traumatic injury, vascular disease, complications from diabetes, infection, cancer or other conditions. It can happen to anyone, at any age or stage of life. And it can be life-changing. That’s why advanced, individualized care is critical in helping amputees adapt to life ahead.
No limits following limb loss Adjusting to life after limb loss isn’t easy. The physical, psychological and emotional challenges can be overwhelming. But as individuals move past surgery to rehabilitation, they slowly seek to adapt to their “new normal.”

Wife and mother of six Lyndel Kelley, 35, could have never imagined that what was supposed to be a routine heart surgery would turn into a seven-month ordeal wherein she would be at home for less than 12 hours.
Lyndel was admitted to Flagstaff Medical Center for what should have been a straightforward mechanical replacement of the mitral and aortic valves of her heart. Unfortunately, after the surgery, she had trouble liberating from the ventilator. When she finally did, doctors found that Lyndel was suffering from decreased neurological awareness. Imaging at the hospital found that she had experienced a stroke, which required a craniotomy to relieve the swelling in her brain.
Once stable enough to be moved, Lyndel was transferred to Select Specialty Hospital (Phoenix, AZ). She had a tracheostomy, or an opening surgically created through the neck into the trachea (windpipe) to allow direct access to a breathing tube, as well as a feeding tube for nutrition. Lyndel was also suffering from pneumonia and respiratory failure. Over the next month, she continued to heal before being transferred to a skilled nursing facility where her tracheostomy was removed and she continued to make slow but steady progress toward recovery.
Three months post-surgery, Lyndel arrived at HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital for the next step in her journey. When she was admitted, Lyndel was still quite weak, requiring significant assistance to move in bed and transfer to her wheelchair and needed complete assistance to walk.
Her physician-led team of nurses and physical, occupational and speech therapists worked with Lyndel to create a plan that would help her regain her strength, endurance and independence.
Physical therapists worked with Lyndel on walking with support, first with a walker, then with a quad cane. She also honed safely transferring from sitting to standing and exercises to help with range of motion, strength and coordination. Occupational therapists assisted Lyndel with on new ways to manage her personal care, including bathing and dressing. Lyndel was also struggling with swallowing and eating, so speech therapists coached her with different swallowing exercises and techniques. Speech therapy also worked with Lyndel on memory, cognition and vocalization of sounds for word production.
She made great progress and was ready to head home using just a quad cane for support when walking out of the hospital alongside her husband, Brian. The day after her discharge from HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, Lyndel was admitted to Flagstaff Medical Center for a procedure to replace her original bone flap, or the piece of bone that was removed during her craniotomy.
After a few days of recovery at the hospital, Lyndel was ready to head home again. Unfortunately, her time at home was very short-lived; she was readmitted to the hospital a day later with a bad headache and worsening neurological status. Imaging showed that Lyndel had both fluid and air collection on her brain as well as a new brain bleed. This required surgery once again to decrease the cranial pressure.
This setback meant that Lyndel needed additional rehabilitation, but having had such a good experience at HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, the decision as to where to go was an easy one. Lyndel returned to the hospital for continued rehabilitation where she again required physical, occupational and speech therapy to address her impaired coordination, physical weakness, deconditioning, cognition and speech deficits. Lyndel also struggled with apraxia, which affected her ability to make certain movements with her mouth. Speech therapists utilized a specialized apraxia application to assist her with putting together phrases and improving her language deficits.
After several additional weeks at HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, Lyndel once again made great progress in her recovery and was excited and very ready to reunite with her family and discharge home just in time for the start of the holiday season. Lyndel is continuing her rehabilitation with outpatient therapy and is doing very well. She and her family are grateful to her physicians, nurses and therapists at HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital, commenting that they were “very accommodating and did a great job with communication and answering questions.”

According to the National Fire Protection Association, half of all home heating fires are reported during December, January and February. As the majority of the country heads into the coldest months of the year, it’s important to revisit basic winter heating safety tips.
Winter heating safety tips
• Keep flammable materials such as paint, solvents and trash at least three feet away from furnaces, boilers, fireplaces, wood stoves and space heaters.
• Do not use the oven or stovetop to heat your home.
• Never use a portable generator or outdoor grill of any kind inside a home or closed garage. These can cause deadly levels of carbon monoxide build-up, which can linger for hours, even after being turned off or extinguished.
• Never leave space heaters unattended or run them overnight while you are sleeping. Always plug space heaters directly into a wall. Do not use an extension cord or power strip, as these can overheat and cause a fire.
• Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional.
• Conduct monthly smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector checks. Remember that any alarm wired directly into a home’s electrical service may not work during a power outage. If your alarms use back-up batteries, install new ones at least once a year.
• Install a sturdy fire screen in front of wood-burning fireplaces to prevent sparks and ash from getting into the room.
