Schuyler Hospital staff is currently conducting training and drilling on personal protective equipment use and removal in the hospital and clinics – so patients and visitors may see staff in gowns, hoods, masks, gloves, etc. There is no cause for alarm or concern. This is a training exercise only.
Hospital officials note that this is part of training required by the NYS Department of Health in response to the recently growing concerns about Ebola virus infection. Schuyler Hospital is working in collaboration with the state, the CDC, and the county health department and emergency medical services.
There are no diagnosed cases of Ebola in upstate New York, no people residing in Schuyler County have been identified as being at risk of infection with the Ebola virus, and there are no public health reasons to close businesses or schools or to cancel community events. No individuals in Schuyler County have been identified as needing quarantine.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
The Breast Cancer Myth
Finding a lump in your breast means you have breast cancer.
Only a small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. But if you discover a persistent lump in your breast or notice any changes in breast tissue, it should never be ignored. It is very important that you see a physician for a clinical breast exam. He or she may possibly order breast imaging studies to determine if this lump is of concern or not.
Take charge of your health by performing routine breast self-exams, establishing ongoingcommunication with your doctor, getting an annual clinical breast exam, and scheduling yourroutine screening mammograms.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 113,733 people are waiting for an organ, 18 people will die each day waiting for an organ, and 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives.
There is a severe shortage of organs for life-saving transplants – including organ transplants, tissue donation, eye donations , etc.
Last year alone, organ donors made more than 28,000 transplants possible. Another one million people received cornea and other tissue transplants that helped them recover from trauma, bone damage, spinal injuries, burns, hearing impairment and vision loss.
