A Healthy Message from Northeastern Health System-Tahlequah Chief of Staff Dr. Brent Rotton.

More than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches. Every year, doctors’ offices are flooded with visits triggered by headaches. June 2-8 has been declared National Headache Awareness Week in order to help people understand what makes their head ache, and how to get relief.

A migraine is a throbbing, one-sided pain that often causes nausea and keeps people from functioning in their work or personal life.  About 30 million Americans suffer from this treatable neuro-biological disorder. Yet, it is estimated that more than half of all people who have migraine headaches have never been diagnosed and are failing to take advantage of the relief that is available today.

Migraines aren’t the only kind of headache to disrupt daily routines.  Tension, sinus and a variety of other headaches can impact the overall quality of life. If you’re bothered by headaches, a headache log can help in identifying triggers that bring on headaches as well as pinpointing the location and type of pain. Even if prevention isn’t always possible, there are new products on the market that can bring relief from all kinds of headaches.

If you suffer from headaches that interfere with your ability to work or enjoy your daily life, the National Headache Foundation offers a list of 10 steps to take:

 

  • Seek help. Be a self-advocate. Migraines are a disease and deserve the same care and attention as any health problem.
  • Educate yourself about migraines so you will know how to best work with your doctor to manage your disease.
  • Visit a doctor specifically about your headaches. This lets your doctor know the problem is serious and not just an afterthought. If your primary care physician doesn’t treat migraines, search for a physician who does.
  • Prepare for your physician visit. Keep a headache diary showing when your headaches occurred, how long they lasted, the severity of the pain and any possible triggers. Document the impact on your life in terms of missed work or skipped social activities.
  • Have reasonable expectations for treatment. While migraines cannot be cured at this time, there are effective treatment plans available.
  • Be honest with the doctor treating your headache about any medications (prescription and over the counter) you take and other medical conditions you experience.
  • Focus on solutions. Be positive.
  • Ask for detailed instructions on taking medications, and follow them. Get documentation about how often and how to take prescribed medications.
  • Partner with your physician. Share communication as you follow the treatment plan.
  • Follow-up regularly with your physician. Typically, physicians may want you to pursue a treatment plan for about three months and then schedule a return appointment to evaluate the treatment’s effectiveness.

Headaches are legitimate biological disorders, not psychological conditions.  If headaches are serious and often enough to interfere with your life, it’s time to schedule a visit with your doctor.

News from Northeastern Health System

Northeastern Health System Announces Trimble as OB Director

TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA – Northeastern Oklahoma Health System is pleased to announce the addition of Teina Trimble as the hospital’s new director of obstetrics. Trimble, who comes with more than 19 years of OB experience, has worked at NHS as a travel nurse for the past six years and is excited to call OB her permanent home. “I started travel nursing in 2010 and took my first assignment here at NHS.  I loved it so much I continued to come back and work here,” said Trimble. “It is a wonderful place to work.  I think the thing that I like the very best is that the people here treat you like family.  I was not a true employee of the hospital, yet the people made me feel like I was part of the family.” Trimble graduated from NEO A&M collage in 1997. She then worked for a hospital for 13 years before deciding to become a travel nurse. Travel nurses typically fill gaps at facilities across the country due to extended absences, census fluctuations, staff training or other situations. “We are ecstatic Teina has accepted the OB director position,” said Donna Dallis, NHS VP of Patient Care. “She is extremely dedicated to the field of nursing, continually strives to be the best she can, and gets along well with the other girls in the department.” In addition to her many years of experience in OB, Trimble’s interpersonal skills make her a valued leader for the department. “I try to listen with an open mind to everything the staff has to say,” said Trimble. “I am continually looking for ways to... read more

New Director to Help Improve Services at Northeastern Health System

TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA – Tiffany Rush, RN, is proof that hard work pays off. Having worked for Northeastern Health System for six and a half years, Rush is excited about her new position as director of the Medical and Surgical (Med/Surg) unit. Understanding the changes in healthcare today, Rush intends to offer advanced education to staff in her department. “My philosophy is ‘see one; do one; teach one.’ I think by sharing all you learn and being a teacher to those you’re in contact with, makes us all better equipped to provide the best care possible,” said Rush. “Patients are more acutely ill with chronic conditions and multiple comorbidities. It’s imperative that we keep up with evidenced-based practices and have positive outcomes.” Rush began her NHS career as a nurse on the Med/Surg unit. She was soon promoted to charge nurse before moving up to serve as the hospital’s transfer coordinator and house supervisor. “I feel the house supervisor position has been the most beneficial to prepare me for my new role as director,” she said. “NHS has recognized my potential, commitment and hard work, and they have allowed me these great opportunities to show all the skills I possess.” The Med/Surg unit of the hospital is the unit that sees the greatest variety of patients, therefore providing the greatest learning environment. “The patients are what make Med/Surg great,” said Rush. “This unit prepares a nurse mentally and physically and helps grow you into a person who learns respect, humility and team work.” Northeastern Health System has long been known for providing excellence in healthcare.   The numerous specialties provided are... read more

  TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA – In 2007, Northeastern Health System, then known as Tahlequah City Hospital, began construction projects amounting to more than $2.5 million in Ft. Gibson. These projects brought much needed healthcare to the area that has continued to thrive. As a result of the continued support and healthcare needs, NHS is once again investing in the Ft. Gibson community. “We have seen a great need for more healthcare services in our surrounding communities,” said NHS VP of Operations, Mark McCroskey. “One of our goals is to offer quality healthcare close to home. The Ft. Gibson expansion will do just that.” Construction, already underway, at the Ft. Gibson Medical Clinic is expected to be completed this November. It will add an additional 3,876 square feet to the current building, as well as adding three new family practice providers. The administration, providers and staff at Northeastern Health System strive to provide convenient and affordable access to a full range of services, including many primary and specialty care services, and consider it a privilege to serve the community. “The addition of more providers will make it easier for Ft. Gibson residents to get the healthcare they need in a timely manner,” said McCroskey. “We have loved serving our Ft. Gibson neighbors and are very excited to offer new services.” Share... read more
