Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015 9B On Monday, Jan. 12, Plumas District Hospital and Plumas Rural Services teamed up for a collaborative training, "Domestic Violence -- What Every Healthcare Provider Needs to Know," for health care providers on the impacts domestic violence can make on the health of their patients. This training event built on momentum sparked during PRS' Celebration of Courage community outreach event in October 2014. The work the agencies are conducting now reflects PDH's commitment to further its efforts in domestic violence outreach and education. Staff attending last week's training got a chance to explore issues around screening patients, providing support to patients, identifying possible links between domestic violence and chronic health issues, mandating reporting and what happens following reports. Throughout the day, there was some surprise at how much domestic violence does impact health generally, beyond the immediate injuries incurred from physical abuse. In fact, according to Bradbury-Jones et al., in their 2011 article "Improving the healthcare of women living with domestic abuse," "Domestic Violence is a greater health burden than any other risk factor -- more Plumas District Hospital and Plumas Rural Services personnel gather for a recent training.

Friends of Plumas County Animals celebrates rehoming of adult cats The new year has started off very happily for Friends of Plumas County Animals. Two of our long-term adult cats have finally gotten new wonderful homes. The gorgeous Lion Boy actually got a home with his kitten buddy, Jack, and according to the adoptive family both cats are doing really well adapting to their new environment: The sweet Maine coon, Ailie, was adopted by a couple in Reno and the first report is that she is doing well also. Adopting out the adult cats is really satisfying to the volunteers who have handled, cared, brushed and loved them -- sometimes for ANIMAL TALES FRIENDS OF PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMALS months. Everyone loves kittens, but the adults can get overlooked. At our rescue each animal has a roomy enclosure with a cat hammock for lounging and we make sure every animal gets a chance to be in the playrooms or run wild in the main room for exercise and socialization. All this playtime and interaction keeps the adults from becoming depressed and keeps them mentally and physically healthy, but it is still not a real home. If you have been thinking of adopting an adult cat please feel free to come by our rescue site and visit Gala, Shelby, Lilly, One-Eye, Bailey or Babe. Look them up on our 0r the ................ ' Adopt-A-Pet website and see if one of these lovely animals doesn't tug at your heart. They all need and deserve loving, permanent caretakers.
