  • Tis the Season for Giving!

    For the last three years, Riverside Community Hospital has participated in the Be a Santa to  Senior Program.  Employees, Physicians, and Volunteers take the time to give and make sure that the seniors in our community are remembered during the holiday season. 

    “Be a Santa to a Senior” is a campaign to collect Christmas gifts for 1,000 seniors living in Riverside, Moreno Valley, Corona and Norco. These seniors are individuals in need. We want to make their Christmas bright with a gift of a set of pajamas, robe, lap blanket, non-skid socks, slippers and toilet-ries. On November 28th, a Christmas tree will be placed in the lobby of Riverside Community Hospital with gift tags.  We would like to invite others from the community to participate in the Be A Santa to  a Senior Program this year.  Home Instead has made available a number of locations with the trees for anyone interested in participating.  If you are in the area and would like to pick up a gift tag, please stop by Riverside Community Hospital.  Once you have purchased your gift, there will be a drop box in the main lobby of the hospital behind the front desk.  Donation items will be collected through December 12th by Home Instead.

    In addition, the Janet Goeske Center will have gift boxes on the tree as well for anyone who would like to make a monetary donation.   Both causes will go to making sure the seniors in our community are remembered this holiday season.

    If you are interested in learning more about how to get involved in these campaigns, please call 951-536-6877 or go to BEASantatoaSenior.com for tree locations. You may also make a donation online by visiting www.iamjgf.org

  • Orthopedic Services – ACL Overview and Injury Treatment

    Orthopedic Services

    Orthopedics is a medical specialty that focuses on diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system—or the bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, and nerves that allow the body to move. One of the most common orthopedic services for active patients includes anterior cruciate ligament—or ACL surgery.

    What is the ACL?
    The anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, runs diagonally in the middle of the knee and prevents the tibia from sliding in front of the femur, providing knee stability and allowing for normal rotation.  Individuals who suffer from a complete ACL tear or a high degree of joint instability or are unable to properly complete sharp movements may require ACL surgery.

    ACL Surgery
    During the ACL surgery procedure, an orthopedic surgeon will locate an autograft—or another tendon in the knee or hamstring—which can be used to reconstruct the torn anterior cruciate ligament. The graft is formed to the correct size and placed within the knee via endoscopic surgery. This requires the torn portion of the ACL to be removed so that the new graft can be threaded or screwed into place. While the procedure itself is done on an outpatient basis and allows individuals to return home the same day, nearly all patients require physical therapy or rehabilitation to regain full range of motion and strengthen their newly created knee joint.

    Riverside’s Orthopedic Unit
    Riverside Community Hospital’s team of surgeons, physicians, and clinical nurses use state-of-the-art technology to provide the best orthopedic treatment for our patients. Our orthopedic unit not only treats individuals who have suffered from an ACL tear, but it also provides services for those who have undergone spinal surgery, hip fractures, and total joint replacement. In addition, we ensure that all of our patients are educated on preoperative care, postoperative care, pain control, ambulation assistance, and discharge coordination. We also offer inpatient and outpatient physical therapy to provide for a faster recovery.

  • Why It’s Important to Visit Your Ophthalmologist

    Vision problems not only affect the way a person sees the world, but they also compromise a person’s enjoyment of life. For this reason, it is essential that you care for your eyes throughout your life.  While visiting your ophthalmologist is important in your youth, it becomes even more important as you age.

    As you will learn in this video, The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that adults with no signs or risk factors for eye disease begin getting baseline eye-disease screenings starting at age 40.  Find out the Academy’s other recommendations by watching the full clip.

    Riverside Community Hospital has a highly-trained compassionate staff of physicians who are committed to your health. Learn more by visiting our website or by calling (951) 788-3000 today.
