Re: “UPDATE: Health Officials: New HIV Cases Cause of Concern

I had Diabetes type 2, I have been taking too many drugs, but sometimes i wish i could make it go away forever, my world was gradually coming to an end but i keep hoping thing will be better than this. I saw a post in a health forum from miss woman on how she was treated from Diabetes type 2 with the use of Robinson Buckler herbs and she also wrote Robinson Buckler cure all kind of deadly diseases including Herpes, HIV, ALS, HPV, HSV1&2, MND, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Diabetes. At first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try and i contacted this herbal Doctor on email Robinsonbuckler@ {{yahoo.}} com and explain my problem to him and he told me that he is going to prepare a herbal medicine for me which he did and he sent it to me through UPS service, when i received this herbal medicine, he gave me instructions on how to use it, after taken the medicine as instructed, i went for check up and the result shows negative and i was treated of this deadly disease within a 2 week, I am now free from Diabetes. You can contact him ????????????………….

Re: “Safety Corridor Sees First Fatal Collision in Years as Project Gears Up

One fatality in 5 years hardly merits spending tens of millions of dollars when Highway 101 through Eureka has multiple fatalities annually.

Re: “A Reasonable Ask

Hi Jen. You mention clean water but not clean air. Asthma and diabetes are both exacerbated by wood smoke, as are many many other diseases. Wood stoves have been estimated to cost several thousand dollars per year each in medical costs both to the burner and their neighbors. In most places where wood is burned wood smoke dwarfs pollution from other sources such as traffic and industry. I urge you to visit the doctors and scientists against wood smoke pollution website at woodsmokepollution dot org where they have a comprehensive referenced list of health effects.

Re: “The Whistleblower

I have worked at Mad River Hospital from 1988 to 2008 in all dept. Med Surg, Discharge planning,home health,utilization review and administrative nursing supervisor.Administration never questioned
me when going out of my way to provide
patients and families with help at the hospitals expense.I made a fair wage and was always compensated for my time.All doctors I worked with were exceptional
Working at Mad River was one of my best nursing jobs.I would leave my job and feel that I had accomplished much and helped someone in need.It is very sad to read such a one sided article by what appears to be a very angry,unhappy professional.
No need to tear down your colleagues.
Just pack your bags and move on
Keep going Mad River Hospital the community needs you and congratulations on remaining

Re: “Vacancy at Fourth and E Streets, Eureka

Did anyone finally figure out if that woman went into safe quarters, or did she pass? I also tried to give her food items. And she would never accept them. I do want to comment that I don't feel the title vacancy at 4th and E streets, is appropriate.

Re: “The Whistleblower

Each experience I’ve had at Madriver has been subpar-granted I’ve lived Memphis and Houston so I will say Humboldt county’s medical care needs improvement.

Re: “Vacancy at Fourth and E Streets, Eureka

I once knew a millionaire who had his house burn down and his family in it. He would still live at the property, only the house wasnt there, many belongings were. This went on for years, he would ride around the town on his bike. I was about 10 years old. Finally I heard a neighbor gave him a room in their house. He lived their. Sometimes people are hurt, confused, and feel lost. We are all human, we need to help each other and not hate. People that talk bad about the homeless sicken me and shouldnt be allowed to live on this earth.

Re: “The Whistleblower

My experience with MRCH community clinic was being moved from a Dr. to an NP. For many years I continued to see this NP regularly and yet she did not diagnose my genetic condition that nearly killed me. I had asked to be tested for it when my brother was diagnosed and she didn't know what it was at first, she then ran the wrong test and told me I didn't have it. No consulting with her supposed supervising Doctor, EVER. I found out later the overseeing physician had been sick and barely functioning for years. End result is I ended up with end stage liver disease because of the lack of a diagnosis of a genetic disorder that I asked to be tested for BY NAME. This could have been prevented through treatment. I got my medical records for the lawyers and found out there was NOTHING in my records about my asking to be tested which basically screwed me a second time because then it would just be a he said/she said case. Mad River had a non functioning doctor as their supervising physician and this particular NP did not do her due diligence to research my genetic disorder to even the degree of running the correct blood tests nor did she refer back to any physician or even manage to remember what we had talked about in my appt by the time she got around to writing her chart notes. I am also a healthcare provider and I KNOW if you don't write your chart notes quickly after the appt., you lose your ability to remember a lot of pertinent information. The NP barely had the time to spend with me, let alone write chart notes, with patients scheduled every 15 mins or so. The entire system is bad. Now, I finally have a fantastic doctor and the medical board is going to run her out of business for prescribing opioids to legacy pain patients. Something's got to give in Humboldt or ????

Re: “Dramatic Video Shows How Sneaky Sneaker Waves Can Be

Denise, The woman who took the video states that the three caught in the wave made it to safety, but whether she caught that on film is unknown and no other footage was included in the Facebook post.

Re: “What Now?

Grow food at home and drive to the store less. Vacation locally. Enjoy more acoustic music. Cuba dealt with energy adversity when their oil supply was cut off by turning their cities into food gardens:… France dealt with the Arab oil embargo in the 1970's by effectively basing their grid on nuclear power and since then they have had the lowest per capita carbon footprint of any modern country in the world.… . Bhutan is the one country in the world that is carbon negative by virtue of the fact that their constitution requires their country be at least 60% forested. They are focused on what they refer to as 'gross national happiness' rather than 'gross domestic product'.… Solar panels and lifestyle changes can make a huge impact.…

Re: “Vacancy at Fourth and E Streets, Eureka

A few years ago my husband was on a paint crew that painted the building catty-cornered to 'her' corner. He said that some mornings she wasn't there, and then they would see her slowly walking along the sidewalk and then go sit on the bench (as if to 'start her day'), other mornings she would already be there when they arrived. He said that he and his co-workers would bring her food on occasion, she would never accept it, so they would just leave it on the bench for her...she would never speak to any of them (or even acknowledge them).

Re: “The Whistleblower

I hope NCJ keeps reporting about the men at Mad River Hospital who are interfering with the quality of women's health care and the hostile work environment especially for women. The fact that this has been tolerated by Doug Shaw and the Board is unacceptable!

Re: “Vacancy at Fourth and E Streets, Eureka

I work in eureka and used to pass her often, wondering if she was still even breathing. She had disappeared for a while earlier this year (late summer time?) and I started wondering where she went, and hoped she was somewhere doing better. Then one day, I saw her sitting there, uncovered. I was shocked to see her uncovered, and back in her spot, but relieved to see that she must have been recently up and moving around. Then she disappeared again. I hope she is somewhere, in a better place than that bench.

Re: “Vacancy at Fourth and E Streets, Eureka

While this story is touching, I'm curious if anyone ever reached out to her to help, or did we all just walk past her? Is it only sad now that she's gone? Could she still be here if we had offered a helping hand?

Re: “The Whistleblower

Dr. Kim Ervin is my own personal savior. ("Someone to hear my prayers. Someone who cares.") She performed my needed hysterectomy a few years ago. I recall crying in her office, offering up the lump that turned out to be one of several fibroids. "You're afraid you have cancer," she said. So much compassion for anxious me.
I was afraid of cancer. But I'm not afraid anymore, thanks to Ervin's thorough, competent care.
When people say "ugh" to Humboldt health care, I point to Ervin and say, "But Kim's still here."
