Notes to the Editor:

EHR System Analyst Jennifer Raihala shares this note:

"Just read Monday's Daily Dose article on the personal protective equipment. The CDC is now saying that the open-necked gowns are no longer the proper ones to wear -- that the hooded total coverage ones are (no taping at the neck, wrists, multiple layers of gloves, etc.). There was an interesting discussion on Fox News Radio about the later stages of the disease and why the CDC has changed their tune on the PPE design."

Jen, thanks for sharing this. The CDC did strengthen its PPE recommendations last night. Click here for the latest developments. -- Holly Gruber, Daily Dose editor

Fosston: Local student completes healthcare management internship

Essentia Health-Fosston President Patricia Wangler with healthcare management intern Jesse DeFrang, who is from Fosston.

FOSSTON, Minn. – Concordia College student Jesse DeFrang, a senior in healthcare management and a Fosston native, is completing a three-month internship at Essentia Health-Fosston this summer.

Essentia President Patricia Wangler says Jesse has spent time in each department in Fosston, learning what it takes to run a healthcare institution. “Our interns help us think critically about why we do things the way we do, and their questions often result in improvements,” she says.

Jesse met with leaders and staff in finance, the business office, human resources, hospital and clinical operations, quality control, nursing home, and home health and hospice.

“While I learned many policies and laws in the classroom, I was able to see the practicality of how and why they were necessary, through the day-to-day operations at Essentia Health,” Jesse said. “I have a much better understanding of how a hospital must operate to provide high-quality medical care that satisfies the needs of patients.”
