Improving Health — Saving Lives

Republic is located in Ferry County, in rural northeast Washington. Situated amidst national forest and mountain passes, the region is very rural and geographically isolated from other counties. Ferry County Public Hospital District provides the only hospital in Ferry County, and the closest other hospitals are over 40 miles away over high passes. Because of our remote setting it is vital that the hospital provide skilled critical care.

History

Ferry County Memorial Hospital was established in Republic, Washington in 1945 and moved to its present facility in June of 1974. Until 1989, the Hospital was operated by the Ferry County Hospital Association, a private group composed of members of the community.

Antibiotic stewardship

By the Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee

According to the Infectious Diseases Society of America, “Antimicrobial stewardship is a coordinated program that promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobials (antibiotics), improves patient outcomes, reduces microbial resistance, and decreases the spread of infections caused by multidrug-resistant organisms.” Our goal at FCPHD is to promote good stewardship so that when those in our community are sick and need antibiotics, we have good options available to treat them.

Deciding when to seek professional treatment for illness for ourselves or loved ones can be difficult. It may seem frustrating that when you finally do seek treatment, you are told to continue only with supportive care (fluids, Tylenol, symptomatic treatment, etc.). If you wonder why you aren’t being prescribed an antibiotic, FCPHD’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee can help answer this question.

Nationwide, healthcare has seen a gradual increase in antimicrobial resistance: difficult to treat bacterial infections that do not respond to antibiotics as they did previously. Bacteria are living organisms that adapt to survive and once exposed to an antibiotic, they can develop a resistance, making the drug less effective in the future. Some bacteria have now become superbug resistant and are difficult to treat with almost any of our known antibiotics. Antibiotics are a precious healthcare resource that your provider needs to help protect by appropriately prescribing the right antibiotics - only when necessary. This may be why you are not being treated with an antibiotic for your illness.

Most common illnesses are caused by either bacteria or viruses. Antibiotics are only effective in treatment against bacterial infections, not viral infections. Many factors contribute to antimicrobial resistance: Using an antibiotic to treat a virus; using the wrong antibiotic; not taking the full course of antibiotics; or selftreating with leftover antibiotics.

When illnesses such as: fever, ear aches/ infections, sinusitis, bronchitis, or nausea develop in adults or children, we highly recommend being seen as soon as possible by your provider. When unsure about the need to see a provider, please call your provider office for guidance.

November 13-19 is U.S. Antibiotic Awareness week. Take some time to explore the CDC’s website to learn more!
