Treating Vertigo or Dizziness with Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is often the answer to relieving even the worst cases of vertigo or dizziness.  Dizziness is one of the most common complaints in the medical field today, particularly when it comes to older adults.  Sometimes dizziness can be very debilitating, and if you haven’t had a recent surgery or change in medication, there may be a lot of things that your physical therapist can do to help identify and treat the cause of your dizziness.

Mayo Decision to Discontinue Water Births Has Local Effect

Veterans Memorial Hospital administrator, Mike Myers, RN, was informed earlier this week that the Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan Healthcare has made the decision to discontinue water births.  This decision also affects Veterans Memorial Hospital locally as the Waukon Mayo Clinic physicians are the ones who deliver babies in the birthing tub at the hospital.

MRI Services Now Available Locally Monday through Friday

Veterans Memorial Hospital’s Radiology Department has announced they are now offering appointments for MRI testing every Monday through Friday.  Formerly, the service was available just two days per week, but as of July 1, these services are now available every week day by appointment and for emergencies as available.

Preventative Colonoscopies Are Available Locally at VMH

Colonoscopies, a very thorough colon cancer test, are performed routinely in the Veterans Memorial Hospital surgical suite.  Typically for a colonoscopy procedure, the patient is in the hospital for approximately just four hours from start to finish. 


Emergency Treatment of Minors

Whenever an emergency occurs involving a minor, health care providers need the permission of a parent to treat the child.  If a parent can not be reached, written consent is required before the child can receive emergency medical treatment.  However, if a physician feels immediate treatment is necessary to prevent death or serious injury, treatment will be given.
