Sen. Pacheco Reads to Middle School Students in Raynham as Part of 'Read Across America' Week

March 4, 2010 - Raynham - Senator Marc R. Pacheco (D-Taunton) spent some time on Wednesday reading to an auditorium packed with seventh and eighth grade students at Raynham Middle School as part of the national reading initiative “Read Across America”.

Pacheco chose to read the Dr. Seuss classic “The Lorax”.  In it, Seuss uses his unique literary style to stress the importance of taking care of the environment.  Though the story was written nearly four decades ago, Pacheco feels that it is just as relevant today as it has ever been.

“I was thrilled to participate in the Read Across America by reading 'The Lorax' to the Raynham Middle School students.  I’ve been reading that book to students as part of this program for many years, and they always seem to respond positively to it,” Pacheco said.  “I must commend the Bridgewater-Raynham School District and all of the other districts across the Commonwealth who are participating in this worthwhile initiative that stresses the importance of the strong communication skills that are cultivated through reading and writing.”

After reading the story, Pacheco held a discussion with the students about the book’s message and how it applies to the world today.  He stressed the importance of working hard in school and developing the skills that will help students achieve success in high school and beyond.  He also took questions from the students on a wide range of topics including his responsibilities as a Senator and the issue of cyber-bullying.

Generous Golfers for PRIDE

August 26, 2009 - Rehoboth, MA – The 10th Annual PRIDE, Inc. Golf Tournament on Monday, July 27, 2009 turned out 117 golfers at Rehoboth Country Club. The winners of the tournament, Rick Roblillard of Taunton, Paul Champagne of Taunton, Armondo Rosa of Taunton and Al Leal of Taunton donated the prize money of $200.00 from the tournament back to the non-profit organization.


Rick Robillard, Paul Champagne, Al Leal and Armando Rosa were the winners of PRIDE, Inc's 10th Annual Golf Tournament. The foursome generously donated the $200 cash prize back to the non-profit organization.

"I never cease to be amazed by the generosity of people," said Doug Latham, PRIDE’s Director of Operations and Golf Tournament organizer. "We are so thankful for their participation in the event alone, but then to donate their winnings back to us is just overwhelming."

The PRIDE, Inc. Golf Tournament has become a summer tradition for Taunton area golfers not only for the event itself, but the famous chicken barbeque held at the P.A.C.C. following the tournament.

Bristol County Savings Bank was the major sponsor for the golf tournament with all proceeds going toward funding the many programs provided by PRIDE to individuals with disabilities.

Morton Receives National Recognition for Quality Heart Disease and Stroke Care

August 12, 2009 - Taunton, MA - Morton Hospital and Medical Center has been recognized for a Silver Achievement in using evidence-based guidelines to provide the best possible care to patients through The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The GuidelinesSM program.

Morton Hospital and 569 other hospitals are featured in an advertisement in the "America’s Best Hospitals" August 2009 issue of US News & World Report to commemorate their receipt of the Get With The Guidelines Performance Achievement Award. The awards are given for achievement in coronary artery disease, stroke and/or heart failure treatment.

"We are proud that the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association have chosen the ‘America’s Best Hospitals’ issue of US News & World Report to recognize Morton Hospital for our achievements in their Get With The Guidelines program," said Thomas Porter, Morton Hospital CEO. "Get With The Guidelines gives our professionals the tools and reports they need to effectively treat our coronary artery disease, heart failure and stroke patients."

Hospitals are recognized in each category in which they achieve at least 85 percent compliance to Get With The Guidelines measures. Those hospitals marking 85 percent compliance for 24 consecutive months are given the Gold Performance Achievement Award, with the Silver Performance Achievement Award going to those with 85 percent compliance for 12 consecutive months.

Get With The Guidelines is a hospital-based quality improvement program designed to ensure that hospitals consistently care for cardiac and stroke patients following the most up-to-date guidelines and recommendations. Currently, more than 1,450 hospitals participate in the program.

"The American Heart Association is pleased to recognize its top Get With The Guidelines participants," said Lee Schwamm, M.D., national chairman of the Get With The Guidelines steering committee, associate professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School and Vice Chairman of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital. "Healthcare providers who use Get With The Guidelines are armed with the latest evidence-based guidelines and immediate access to clinical decision support. The goal of this initiative is to ultimately improve the quality of life and help reduce deaths among heart and stroke patients."

Taunton Animal Shelter Pet of the Week: LUCKY

August 6, 2009 - LUCKY is a sweet senior male Husky/Shepherd mix about 9 years old. He appears to like everyone and would be a welcome addition to any family. We were told he was good with children; however, due to his age, we recommend no toddlers. He appears fine with most other dogs. Lucky could benefit from a good quality low calorie senior food and supplements. He enjoys going for walks and would make a good walking companion for a person of any age. Lucky may be a "senior" in years, but deep inside he still thinks of himself as a pup and has lots of "get up and go"! A fenced yard would be a plus. Please call the Taunton Shelter at 508-822-1463 or email deanie7243@aol.com.

State Funds Approved for Bridgewater-Raynham HS Green Project
B-R one of 16 K-12 schools to receive a total of more than $3 million in to incorporate energy- and money-saving features into new buildings and additions/renovations.

August 4, 2009 - Boston, MA - Senator Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton) and The Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust announces funding approval totaling more than $3 million for high-performance green schools. Funding is being awarded to five schools for green school design assistance and to nine schools for solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays; one additional school is being awarded funding for both green school design assistance and a solar PV array.

Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School is one of nine schools that have been approved for solar PV installation funding. The installation awards will range from $150,000 to $300,000 per school, with combined funding from the Trust’s Green Schools Initiative and Commonwealth Solar rebate program. Funding for each project will be contingent on the school’s Massachusetts Collaborative for High Performance Schools (MA-CHPS) score. MA-CHPS rates schools based on implementation of a variety of energy-saving features and conservation measures.

Bridgewater-Raynham Regoinal High School

"These projects will not only help the schools operate in an energy friendly manner and become more efficient, but they will also help teach the students in these communities the importance of energy awareness. Everyday that students attend these schools they will be reminded how important it is for their generation to be energy conscious today, and in the future. These schools can be proud to know they will serve as models for future projects", said Pacheco.

Through the Green Schools Initiative, the Trust has made awards to public school districts for green building design—including green design team support and energy, acoustic, and daylight modeling—and for renewable energy system design and installation. This highly successful initiative has led to the adoption of state regulations that have required all new school or major renovation projects approved for construction reimbursement from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) after July 1, 2007 to implement numerous green design measures. The MSBA has provided an additional funding incentive of up to two percent of construction costs for MA-CHPS Verified high-performance green schools. High-performance green school buildings save an average of 25% in energy costs over traditional schools and have superior indoor environmental qualities.

Since 2002, the Trust has supported more than 80 schools in their efforts to incorporate renewable energy systems and other green elements into their facilities through the Green Schools Initiative, Commonwealth Solar, Commonwealth Wind, and previous initiatives. Going forward, the Trust will continue to support clean energy installations at schools throughout Massachusetts through Commonwealth Solar—which has a new rebate adder for green schools—and Commonwealth Wind.

Morton Hospital Receives Grant from Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation
Donation to help purchase equipment for Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Center

July 27, 2009 - Taunton, MA – Morton Hospital and Medical Center recently received a grant from the Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation in the amount of $7,500. The donation will support the purchase of new equipment for the Hospital’s Women’s Diagnostic Imaging Center.


E. Dennis Kelly, left, Bristol County Savings Bank President, presents a donation to Thomas Porter, Morton Hospital CEO

Bristol County Savings Bank has been a long-standing and generous philanthropic partner of Morton Hospital and Medical Center. In December of 2008, the Foundation funded the purchase of a code card and an oxygen blender for the Hospital’s First Impressions Maternity Center. These pieces of equipment have been a vital resource for the Maternity Center, providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency care to infants in respiratory distress.

"Bristol County Savings Bank is happy to support Morton Hospital," said E. Dennis Kelly, Bristol County Savings Bank President. "We recognize and appreciate the services they provide to the community and are happy to assist in upgrading their equipment. The Bank has had a long and supportive relationship with the Hospital for many years, and we look forward to working with them for many more."

DA Sutter, Bristol County Leaders To Support Dangerous Bill

July 27, 2009 - District Attorney Sam Sutter and a host of other community leaders from throughout Bristol County and the state will be testifying before the Joint Judiciary Committee Monday afternoon in support of a bill filed by Sen. Mark Montigny which aims to allow district attorneys throughout the state to request dangerousness hearings for those charged with illegal gun crimes.

The testimony is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. in the Gardner Auditorium at the Massachusetts State House.

The legislation, Senate Bill No. 1748, was filed by Sen. Montigny shortly after the Supreme Judicial Court ruled on May 4, 2009 that District Attorney Sutter's use of the dangerousness statute to attempt to hold those defendants charged with illegal gun crimes without bail for 90 days was not what the Legislature intended.

Sen. Montigny's legislation would simply put back into the dangerousness statute what the SJC took out.

In order to send out a clear and resounding message, District Attorney Sutter instructed his prosecutors, from the day he started as the new District Attorney in January 2007, to ask for these dangerousness hearings every single time someone was arrested and charged with a gun felony.  Combining this with other aggressive new policies, such as rapidly prosecuting those held after a finding of dangerousness within the 90 days allowed by the statute, District Attorney Sutter set about trying to change the landscape concerning gun violence in Bristol County.


Bristol County DA Sam Sutter

After 28 months of implementing these policies and working closely with our county's police chiefs and mayors, the results were eye opening. New Bedford experienced a 33 % decline in reports of shots fired during this time period and went for a five month stretch from November of 2008 until April of 2009 without a single shooting.  Fall River saw a 34% decline in reports of shots fired and Taunton a 29% decline.

But in its May 4th ruling, the SJC said carrying an illegal firearm is "passive and victimless."  The court said there is no substantial risk of harm to another in the illegal possession, but the substantial risk is in the use.

District Attorney Sutter and many others who believe those who carry illegal firearms are a danger to the public's safety have two main criticisms of the Court's decision:  one logical and one empirical.  First, logically, by the time a firearm is being used to commit a crime, the risk is over and the harm has begun.  And, second, empirically, over 95% of the shootings in Bristol County over the past two and a half years have been committed by illegal firearms.

Since the SJC's decision on May 4th, gun violence in Bristol County has sadly begun to climb.  In New Bedford, over the past eight weeks, three people have been killed by firearms and eight others have been shot and wounded.  Fall River has also seen four recent shootings and Taunton has been home to several reports of shots fired.

"The possibility of a connection between the change in my approach necessitated by the SJC's decision and the rise in gun violence is inescapable.  The fear criminals had of immediate and lasting incarceration for carrying an illegal gun has been greatly eroded," District Attorney Sutter said. "That is why our legislature must act now to put back in the dangerousness statute those three gun felonies which the SJC said are not presently covered. The Legislature has shown it can act quickly when the need is urgent.  Last year in Massachusetts, 105 people were killed by gun violence. What could be more urgent than that?"

First EEE Positive Mosquito Sample Identified in Massachusetts
Health officials remind residents to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites

July 22, 2009 - Boston, MA — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced that Eastern Equine Encephalitis has been detected in a mosquito sample in Massachusetts for the first time this year. The mosquito sample was collected on July 16, in the town of Freetown, located in Bristol County.

There have been no human cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) or Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) identified so far this year.

In 2008, there was one human case of EEE; however there were 13 cases with 6 deaths from 2004 through 2006. EEE is usually spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. EEE is a serious disease for all ages and can even cause death.

"This is the first reminder that EEE is circulating in our environment" said DPH State Epidemiologist, Dr. Al DeMaria "Southeastern Massachusetts has historically borne the brunt of EEE."

People have an important role to play in protecting themselves and their loved ones from illnesses caused by mosquitoes.

Avoid Mosquito Bites

  • Be Aware of Peak Mosquito Hours. The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes. Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that occur during evening or early morning.

  • Clothing Can Help Reduce Mosquito Bites. Wearing long-sleeves, long pants and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.

  • Apply Insect Repellent when Outdoors. Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), oil of lemon eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] or IR3535 according to the instructions on the product label. DEET products should not be used on infants under two months of age and should be used in concentrations of 30% or less on older children. Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under three years of age.

Mosquito-Proof Your Home

  • Drain Standing Water. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or discarding items that hold water. Check rain gutters and drains. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change water in birdbaths frequently.

  • Install or Repair Screens. Keep mosquitoes outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors.

More information is available on the DPH website: www.mass.gov/dph/wnv. Information about West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis is also available by calling the DPH recorded information line at 1-866-MASS-WNV (1-866-627-7968), or the Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800.

Morton Hospital Performance Improvement Director Completes Patient Safety Fellowship, Receives Prestigious Award

July 22, 2009 - Taunton, MA – Orla Brandos, RN, MBA, MSN, CPHQ, PSF, Director of Performance Improvement/Risk Management and Patient Safety Officer at Morton Hospital and Medical Center, recently completed an Executive Fellowship in Patient Safety at the Williamson Institute for Healthcare Leadership at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Upon graduating from the program, Brandos was awarded the prestigious Carl W. Armstrong Award, given to one fellow from each graduating class, selected by the teaching faculty and fellow students.


Orla Brandos, Director of Performance Improvement/Risk Management and Patient Safety Officer at Morton Hospital and Medical Center

During the 11-month program, which was sponsored by Morton Hospital, Brandos completed an extensive curriculum including courses on Medication Safety & Methods, Advanced Issues in Error Reporting Systems, Leadership and its Impact on Patient Safety, and Use of Technology for Patient Safety Success.

"I am a patient advocate and I strive to promote excellence in providing safe, quality care for all of our patients at Morton Hospital," said Brandos. "The healthcare environment is constantly changing, and this program provided me the opportunity to learn about the most current and innovative resources and best practices to improve patient safety."

Each fellow in the program was required to design and implement a patient safety project. Brandos’s project, "Improving Handoff Communication in the Acute Care Hospital", gave a detailed approach to the evidence-based SBAR (Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation) communication tool used among caregivers, including those at Morton Hospital. Her project was voted most likely to promote significant advancements in patient safety, which prompted Brandos’s award nomination. As a result of the project’s success, Brandos was also selected as a guest speaker at the Virginians Improving Patient Care and Safety (VIPC&S) annual conference.

Prior to her current position at Morton Hospital, Brandos served as Director of a medical surgical unit at Cape Coral Hospital in Florida. Previous to that, she worked at Morton Hospital as a staff nurse in a variety of clinical settings. She has more than 18 years of hospital nursing and leadership experience, and is responsible for all quality and safety initiatives at Morton Hospital.

"The patient safety fellowship provided advanced education related to standards of excellence in safe patient care across the continuum of care for all patients" said Brandos. "The resources I gained during my fellowship are some that you can’t find anywhere else."
