  • COLUMN: Safely store and dispose prescription medication

     During the week of Sept. 23-29, The Partnership at Drugfree.org is launching the Medicine Abuse Project, a multi-year effort to raise public awareness about and curb prescription drug abuse.

    Most of us will take a prescription medication at some point in our lives. It’s important to remember that medicine a doctor prescribes you is only intended for your use.

  • Hosparus patient involved with train hobby

     Many of us think of our “bucket” lists with a wistful eye toward sandy beaches, cruises to ports unknown or helicopter rides. For Joseph Kareth, a 94-year-old Hosparus patient, his dream trip included a much shorter and simpler journey.  He wanted to go to his own basement. With the help of his Hosparus nurse Melissa Griffin and certified nursing assistant Jorge Rosabal, Joseph recently made it down a flight of stairs for the first time in nearly a year.
