WCBI News at Ten - Thursday, August 15th, 2019

We begin tonight with breaking news out of lowndes county..

Sheriffs deputies are on the scene of a reported shooting in the town of crawford..

Our quentin smith is there..

He joins us live... what do we know so far quentin?

At least one candidate for statewide office has vowed to make mississippi the safest place for an unborn child// but a nationwide study says things can be pretty bleak once that child is born// wallethub has ranked mississippi as the worst state to have a baby// they looked at everything from access to care to average infant-care costs// courtney ann jackson spoke with the march of dimes about how the state is working to improve things for expectant moms and their babies// mississippi's march of dimes wasn't surprised to see the state get the ranking as worst state to have a baby.

"we're trying but we're goin to have to try harder."

Let's talk about what the state is doing to combat the problems for expectant mothers and their babies.

One of them---the baby and me- tobacco free program.

"women are going through smoking cessation course.

They're receiving a diaper voucher for doing it.

And if they remain smoke free throughout their pregnancy and during the postpartum period, they receive vouchers.

And we've actually seen positive results from that so far."

More insurers in the state are also working with high risk pregnant women to have access to a progesterone medicine can help prevent preterm births.

An area where mississippi moms struggle is access to care.

A march of dimes study last year revealed a major gap in nearly half the state's counties.

"they don't have an obgyn or hosptial that has obstetric services."

This is a need where wengora says telemedicine could help stretch the boundaries.

Some other states now have what's called presumptive eligibility through public insurance so that expectant moms are able to start receiving prenatal care and doctors are still receiving payment while the state considers their eligibility for medicaid.

And once the baby is born-a program called implicit is helping keep moms healthy.

"screens mom at well chil visits.

So, when mom brings baby to see the doctor, she's screened for postpartum depression, for smoking, what's her multi-vitamin intake...depending on how she screens...she'll also get referred to services."

Courtney ann jackson, wcbi news another issue facing far too many mississippi children is child abuse, but a new program is teaching professionals from many fields to spot and report the signs of abuse// as our rylie livingston reports that's moving the state to the top of a ágoodá list..

We're leading the nation in child advocacy studies// child advocacy studies... cast for short, is a new program designed to help professionals recognize and report possible child abuse cases, and it is quickly taking hold across the state..

"we have 27 schools that hav joined the cast program and have begun implementing that curriculum even as an option or minors for undergrad and graduate programs so we are super excited the leader in the state for number of colleges that have jumped on board with that."

Brand says the cast program gives students a chance to move out of the classroom, network with the community, and get a hands on learning experience.

"without that collaboratio they wouldn't have an idea of what day today looks like in the field that they are looking at entering as their career choice so it's really important that they are just kind of broaden their awareness i'm not only having the issues facing children but then who all is involved in finding a solution for them."

And it's not just social workers who benefit from cast.

"it's really touching the law enforcement field, first responder fields, the medical professions, teachers.

It takes all of us to recognize child abuse cases report those and then jointly investigate those for the best possible outcome is for the kids that are involved in those traumatic experiences."

The program also has the potential to serve as a national model..

"there are states that ar trying to mic what mississippi is doing and our executive director of children's advocacy center in mississippi is meeting with people in washington dc talking about how this program has really taken shape in our state and yes i do you think it will be about a program that all across the country which is very exciting."

Some of the schools offering cast include mississippi state, mississippi university for women, and east mississippi community college.

North mississippi medical center in eupora is celebrating a big win... and its position in the community.

The hospital won the 2019 outstanding mississippi small rural hospital award..

With so many smaller hospitals closing..

And with the talk of doing away with them... workers say today's award speaks volumes about the importance of rural hospitals in small communities.

Quentin smith has more..

The small hospital in eupora is adding another award to it's collection.

The hospital's focus for the award was telehealth, which is a new technology that allows medical workers to provide face-to-face care for patients through video screenings.

" we selected our telehealt program because it's relatively new and it's been such a resource for our patients.

It allows people in our local community to have access to specialty care without even leaving the local market."

Hospital workers say services like telehealth highlight just one of the many reasons rural hospitals like this one are so vital to the community.

" there's been a real emphasi in the government and with medicare and medicine in general to pull away from small hospitals."

Dr. charles osborn has been with the hospital for more than five decades and says he strongly disagrees with that notion.

" everybody migrates to th big hospital and then get better care, but the problem is they have to go off there and be sent to the big hospital, they don't know anybody, and the family, it's a hardship for them to take care of them there.

" the long term doctor says they serve as a big economic impact for the community, and also provides patients the convenience of getting quality healthcare without having to leave town.

"it's so important for th community because a lot of them can't get to the big hospital, in this county especially, a lot of our patients are elderly, they don't have transportation, they don't have the means to go."

Throughout the years it's become common to see rule hospitals close up and leave town however, ozborn says partnering with north mississippi medical center allowed them to expand their medical services and also keep their doors open "i just hope we can encourag people in the medical community, and the people in the legislature, and people who make a difference as far as how insurances are going to pay and what we need to have to have reimbursements, so that we will be able to take better care of people, because if they don't make it that way if they're to make it more and more difficult for small hospitals to make it and provide this care for."

It's the biggest deal on 2 wheels in mississippi this weekend..

We it's back to school time// tonight we're talking about packing safe school lunches in our health talk with baptist.

Hi.

I'm libby walker, the morrison director of food and nutrition services at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.

Tonight i want to talk to you about how to pack a safe school lunch for your child.

Bacteria that cause foodborne illness, commonly known as food poisoning, grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees fahrenheit.

In just two hours, these microorganisms can multiply to dangerous levels, which can cause foodborne illness.

Follow these tips to make sure the lunches and snacks you pack for your child are safe.

?

Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food.

?

Rinse fruits and vegetables under running tap water.

Blot dry with a paper towel before packing them in your child's lunch.

?

Select an insulated lunch box or bag with enough room for two cold sources to keep the food inside safe.

Make sure it is easy to clean both inside and out.

?

If the lunch/snack contains perishable food items like luncheon meats, eggs, cheese or yogurt, make sure to pack it with at least two cold sources.

A frozen juice box or bottle of water can be used along with a frozen ice pack.

?

If packing a hot lunch like soup, use an insulated container such as a thermos.

Fill the thermos with boiling water, let stand for a few minutes, empty and then put in the ping hot food.

?

If you pack the child's lunch the night before, leave it in the refrigerator overnight with the lid or bag open.

It will stay colder longer.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist.
