Have a favorite hospital? This could change your mind. - The Federal Government has released comparative rankings for hospitals in heart care, pneumonia and surgery. The hospitals were evaluated against standards of reccomended care. A nationwide average was determined and hospitals are measured against the national average. You can search by state and county. The rankings are a real eye opener. Over the years our family has come to believe that Toledo Hospital can be a less than the best place to treated. Turns out to be true. Two of our local hospitals are considerably above the national average. How did our much touted teaching hospitalfare? See for yourself.

SmokeChoke: Ohio Smoking Ban Violator Registry - A couple weeks ago, I was sitting in Brewed Awakenings trying to enjoy a cup of coffee, but there was a lady chain smoking in the other room using an ashtray provided by Brewed. It struck me that an online registry of smoking ban violators would be helpful to avoid situations like that.

MRI Procedure and diagnostic testing - MRI - a pleasureable experience. I wanted to pass along something positive for a change. I recently had to get a MRI study done. I had never had one done before and was a bit apprehensive. My doctor left the decision of where to go to me and my insurance so after some research I decided on a place called Progressive Wellness Imaging in Sylvania. All I had to do was call and they got me in the next day. It was a really nice place with a large warm waiting room, (and some cute girls). I only had to wait a few minutes and was shocked, normally you wait at least 30 minutes or more in a doctors office before they get you in. The gals there were great and they explained everything and let me pick my own music to listen to. I wanted to go to one ...

Your suggestions for finding a physician for my 80 year old mom - My mom's physician recently left private practice to work as a medical director at Hospice of NWO. Does anyone have any suggestions for a primary care physician who is good with senior citizens? A physician practicing in the south end, Maumee or Perrysburg would be ideal. Any ideas Toledo Talkers?

'Cleveland council seeks trans-fat ban' - "We now have Smoking Police. Are we ready for Crisco Cops? Cleveland City Council on Monday unanimously passed a resolution encouraging a ban here. The council measure does not carry the teeth of law. But it notes that trans fats contribute to heart disease, and it asks the city health department to work with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health to ban the fats from restaurant menus. Cleveland Councilman Kevin Conwell said he would push for a law. "Trans fat is a silent poison. It's killing people in the city of Cleveland," said Conwell." Hopefully, Toledo City Council will remember the rules of government and follow Cleveland's lead on this issue, so we can have more pride in our city.

Mumps at UT - An E-Mail sent to UT employees, students, and alumni...
Unconfirmed case of mumps provides UT educational opportunity
By Norine Wasielewski
A student at the Student Medical Center on the Main Campus of The University of Toledo is being treated for an unconfirmed case of mumps, according to Dr. Christopher Halasy, the Student Medical Center’s chief of medicine.
“This student is doing well and is receiving appropriate care,” Halasy said, stressing that there was no need for panic. He added that the case was an opportunity to educate students and employees about mumps and remind them to take preventative measures and exercise caution.
Halasy indicated that this is part of an ongoing situation as universities across the nation have reported 5,783 cases of mumps to the Centers for Disease Control from the beginning of 2006 through Oct. 7, with two confirmed cases regionally. - More>>
