Peninsula Home Care's DelmarvaLife segment on sepsis was our most viewed video of 2016.

Many people have never ever heard of Sepsis. We all need to know the facts because Sepsis is a life-threatening condition. It occurs when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Common signs include fever, increased heart rate and breathing and confusion.

Peninsula Regional Medical Center makes revisions to their visitation policy. ... See MoreSee Less

Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) is happy to offer a patient-centered, family-friendly visiting policy that is dedicated to promoting a positive healing environment and experience while protecting the safety and privacy of its patients. Understanding the important emotional support that family and friends bring to the recovery process, PRMC today announced a revision to its visitation policy. Beginning Monday, January 23, 2017 at 8:00 p.m., regular visiting hours will occur from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week. A few specialized care areas, like the Intensive Care Unit that welcomes visitors from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., still maintain their own visiting hours for patient comfort and safety. As well, areas like our Labor and Delivery and Mother/Baby units that have customized visiting plans to accommodate moms and their support person will maintain their visitation processes. Peninsula Regional reminds visitors to see the nurse caring for their friends and loved ones, upon arrival, for additional and specific information on those specialized units. As always, the number of visitors and the length of the visit may be determined by the PRMC care team in collaboration with the patient and the family based on the patient’s condition, preference and need. Child visitation will be at the discretion of the family/designee and patient in collaboration with the patient care staff. Visits by children and siblings must be supervised, and they are never to be left unattended in a waiting area. During high viral activity, like the flu season, visits by children may not be permitted. While Peninsula Regional encourages everyone to comply with the established visitation hours, the Medical Center absolutely understands that there are times families may be required to visit outside of the established visiting hours or wish to spend a longer time with their loved ones. In those occasions, PRMC has implemented the following guidelines to protect the safety of visitors, patients and staff. If arriving prior to 8:00 a.m., after 8:00 p.m. or if staying beyond 8:00 p.m., all visitors are now asked to report to the PRMC Security station located at the Emergency Walk-In entrance across from the Visitor Parking Garage on the first floor. You will be required to provide identification and be provided a badge that must be worn at all times. The badge will identify you and will detail for our staff and security team the area you will be visiting. If wishing to spend an overnight with your loved one, the request must first be approved by the unit’s charge nurse. Once approved, you will be asked to report to the PRMC Security station located at the Emergency Walk-In entrance across from the Visitor Parking Garage on the first floor. You will be required to provide identification and be provided a badge that must be worn at all times. The badge will identify you and will detail for our staff and security team the area you will be staying. PRMC reminds its visitors to please take into consideration the needs of your loved one for rest, recovery and privacy. Additionally, the Medical Center asks visitors to always sanitize their hands before entering and upon leaving a patient’s room; to be considerate of others by keeping noise to a minimum; refrain from visiting if they have a cold, sore throat, flu-like symptoms or any contagious disease; observe and respect all precautionary room signage before entering; not smoke as the use of tobacco or vaping products is prohibited on all PRMC campuses and to voluntarily exit a room during tests or treatments if asked to do so by a member of the Peninsula Regional clinical team. If you have any questions about PRMC’s revised visitation policy or how it affects children and siblings, please be sure to inquire with a nurse on the unit to learn any specific details or restrictions.

This morning I was proud to issue a statewide proclamation declaring today Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in Maryland. Maryland's law enforcement officers are some of the finest men and women in uniform anywhere in the country, and I am proud to declare January 9 Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in recognition of their important and selfless work. Every single day they put their lives on the line to make their communities and our state a better and safer place to live. I will continue to support our law enforcement officers today and every day as we work together to change Maryland for the better, and I encourage all Marylanders to show their appreciation for these outstanding men and women.
