The Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Pasco counties are partnering with local area hospitals on a comprehensive survey to better understand and address the health needs of communities in the Greater Tampa Bay area.
The 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment collects data from residents on nutrition, physical activity, access to care, and mental health.
The survey for Pasco County residents is available in English at bit.ly/pascohealth, or in Spanish at bit.ly/pascohealthSpanish.
A link to the survey also is available on participating county health department websites.
Residents can access the survey through April 21.
Hospital to test footwear sanitizing stations
AdventHealth Connerton will be the first specialty acute care facility in the nation to test the PathO3Gen Solutions Footwear Sanitizing Stations to maximize infection control for patients and their families.
The patented, new technology uses proactive Solestice 3/15 Technology to kill superbugs, such as MRSA and C. difficile, which can be transmitted from the bottoms of shoes to patients, staff and visitors.
Within 6 seconds of stepping onto the station, a person’s shoes are decontaminated, decreasing the spread of infectious illness.
Nine of the innovative stations will be tested throughout the facility.
AdventHealth Connerton is partnering with Green Earth Medical Solutions in St. Petersburg to bring this one-of-a-kind technology to the facility.
