Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Soturday, May 5, 1970- For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor THE basic equipment of a new home as to in- clude eating facilities. Depending upon your cir- cumstances, they could be a hot plate, or a fireplace, or the multitude of electrical appliances. But the av- erage shopper cooks with a stove. Not any more. Just as they've taken stereo equip- ment out of big chunks of furniture into neat compon- ent sets, the stove is soon to be a piece of antiquated equipment. Well not soon, but sometime. With the disappearance of the stove, of course, goes one of a housewife's most dreaded and most neg- fected shores, cleaning the oven. Until something even better comes along you can now cook on a smooth coilless counter which cleans like a dream. No unsightly rings or burners to cook on or clean. Just build it in. When you want an extra counter there it is. The oven is of course the microwave. At a recent Food-a-rama held in the city, I viewed one of the new- er models. To my uneducated eye all microwave ovens look gorgeous. The salesman assured me there was no problem with his model with dangers of radiation, and pro- ceeded to show me all the features. There's no in- stallation needed. You just plug it in. No danger of young fingers getting burnt because there's no heat except in the food. You can boil water in a glass. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it happens. When the oven is opened the power shuts off, so no dangers there. You can broil bacon on a paper towel. The oven is small and I asked how on earth any- one could roast something the size of a turkey. That is a problem, the salesman admitted, but when you consider that you can cook a bird in less time than it takes to stuff it, you can almost cook it in portions. Well, let's take a look. You can cook sausages in 35 seconds, a T-bone steak in 45 seconds (that's 16 a baked potato in, would you believe, three minutes. The unit itself weighs 79 to 121 pounds and can be moved about on a little corner. Cleaning is a cinch as you just wipe ot any spills on the inside after using. It's not hot, remember. The barbecue is not quite out of sight yet. You can't beat those outdoorsy meals with their rich aro- mas and succulent flavors, but for convenience the microwave oven is right in there. Price is still a problem for the majority of people, although it's coming down to around appreciably more than the modern range even with a self-cleaning oven. I doubt that the general public is aware of how- many of these new innovations the food service indus- try uses. In many cases such as potato powders it has taken a considerably longer time to get the same quality of product on the retail market as it has for commercial use. One dealer said his company did not sell to retail- ers His product was indeed superior than the same kind of product that is now on supermarket shelves. Some products are released for commercial use and then turned over to the public, but the market is still better in the food service industry than with the con- After reviewing all the new products available for the food service industry however, one can see that convenience and ease of production does not mean a loss of standards, rather more uniformity and quality for the consumer. _____ By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor HPHE Lethbridge Municipal Hospital has utilized a pi- ot study of the University of Saskatchewan to bring into el- ect a project of Progressive Care at the hospital.

Six mobile units have been constructed by the hospital's maintenance de partment to be used in the Progressive Patient Care project. Progressive Patient Care Project New Focus On Patient At Municipal Hospital first city to have this relatively new concept in action. The p r o j e c t got under waj this weekend in three surgica wings of the hospital and volves 73 beds. With Progressive Patient care, hospital services and fa- cilities are geared to the needs of the patients and not to the convenience of the hospital and staff. 101 YEARS YOUNG Deciding if her birthday is any more exciting than St. Patrick's Day is difficult for Miss Margaret McGlynn who is celebrating her 101st birthday with an open house in the Edith Cavell Nursing Home. Originally from Ireland, she has lived in Lethbridge since 1923. Saturday, Miss McGlynn will be the guest of honor at a family reunion when 50 guests are expected at the home of two of her nieces, Margaret and Frances Parisel. 'We have turned the focus of care on the said Mrs. Gorrow. "When a patient is to il be admitted his needs will be of i- prime importance, and his level rf care will continually be as- sessed during his The patient a more personalized care, the author- ty of the nursing hierarchy reaches down into the ranks to provide a more satisfactory service for both nurse and pa- lent. Under traditional admittance procedures where a patient is jategorized according to sex, age, type of service .required, he patient's needs may be scat- Bred according to his ability to pay rather than to the amount md type of care he needs. A patient in the PPG project receives a daily classification of ris progress and needs within :he jurisdiction of the nursing unit, on this basis alone. Private and semi private rooms will still be available but within the framework of the new project. Both male and fe- male, patients have been ac- commodated in intensive care units for some time particular- in the coronary eases. The Municipal Hospital will use four levels of care: from she minimal care where a pa- ient is able to take care of many of his own needs through average care, above average care to intensive care where emotional and physical needs are at a critical stage. The benefits of PPC are four- fold, said Mrs. Gorrow. to the patient in individual ized attention to me physician relying on this specialized care to the .nursing staff whose special abilities will be utilized and their work no longer frag- mented to the hospital where the quality of patient care will be enhanced. PPC is made possible through the decentralization of the nurs- ing station to the nursing unit. Replacing tte head nurse is the nurse care co-ordinator who takes over many of the admin- istrative duties formerly han- dled by the nursing staff.

The unit nurse has more di- rect responsibility to the pa- tient according to the physi- cian's orders, and makes with the physician with a knowledge of each patient in ler.charge.

Mrs. Gorrow explained that Puppeteers Help India Family Plan BOMBAY (CP) Puppeteers are being pressed into service in India's family planning cam- paign. They have been found to be particularly useful in areas with a tow literacy rate. Peasant women are said to respond en- thusiastically to puppet shows depicting the latest birth control devices. In a village in Rajasthan province in central India all the married women turned up to see a puppet show which had the theme: "We are two, we have two." India's family planning pro- gram lays emphasis on a maxi- mum of three children for each couple. "But two is the ideal number for a an offi- cial booklet says. An internationally-famed American puppeteer is helping his Indian counterparts stream- line their crusade. He is Bill Baird, who has first-hand knowledge of Indian villagers, having been here some years igo. although drugs would be car- ried on each cart, the same precautions would be carried out and used to keep them under strict lock and key out of the reach of patients or passers-by. Recessed areas in the hall- way will be built later to ac- commodate each nursing sta- tion. Nursing care co ordinator at the hospital is Mrs. Rene Arsene arid service cp ordin- ator is Mrs. Janet Girvari. Notice of the U of S. study was made last spring and while the university was making a self-evaluation, the Municipal Hospital began collecting sta- tistics and gearing itself to a possible change over Guiding the project has been a core committee of six physi- cians, six nursing staff, Mr. An- dreachuk and Mrs. Gorrow who came to the hospital in Janu- ary to head the project. While Hie PPC concept is new to the modern hospital, the theory is the same useo by Florence Nightingale to put all SIRS. MARY GORROW those patients requiring the same level of care together. One of the most recent cities to use the concept is Manches- ter, Conn., where levels of in- tensive care, intermediate care, self care, continuing care, and home care were instituted. The staff at the Municip al Hospital is enthusiastic about the success of the PPC project. Although the' commit t e e is waiting for six months to make an evaluation of the project, it will likely be looking to encom- passing more of the hospital in progressive patient care and putting the hospital on the move.
