Windom Area Hospital Welcomes Dr. Yusuf
Dr. AJ Yusuf will join the medical staff at Sanford Mt. Lake and Sanford Windom Clinics starting March 1st. Windom Area Hospital would like to join Sanford in welcoming Dr. Yusef to our community. As a family medicine provider, Dr. Yusuf will see patients at the Windom Area Hospital if admitted as inpatients.

Family medicine is special to Dr. Yusuf because he loves the opportunity it provides to see patients from infancy to geriatrics. He also states in a recent video interview that, “continuity of care makes family medicine very special, there is a deeper physician and patient relationship.” He also notes that he looks forward to having shared decision making between the patient and himself, and likes the fact that family medicine has a focus on preventative medicine.

AJ Yusuf, MD, received his medical degree in 2011 from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He completed his family medicine residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Yusuf came to the area from Sanford Worthington and is board certified in family medicine

Construction Update
Roof Decking Nears Completion
The roof decking on the new building is nearly all in place. Additional welding will be completed to secure the roofing before steel studs and insulation can be installed. Yellow material board will be fastened to the walls before brick will be installed.

Inside the building, we are working on a lot of plumbing and electrical changes. As part of this, a large wall has been built near our nurse's station, causing some disruption to our hallways and waiting areas.

Plastic barriers have also been installed in the hallway near the fitness center so medical gas and water piping can be installed.

Looking into the Spring, we expect our concrete floors in the new addition to be poured in April.

Ebola threat hightens WAH preparedness
While an ebola outbreak is not likely in our area, WAH is preparing for the potential threat by taking several steps.

All patients presenting at the hospital will be screened by staff using the following protocol, prescribed by Sanford and the Center for Disease Control (CDC):

1. All patients are being asked travel questions upon first contact with WAH Staff.

2. Patients are also screened for a fever of 100.4 or above and other physical symptoms including headache, weakness, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or hemorrhage.

If a patient may be a risk, the staff follow a recommended protocol including isolating the patient, implementing a notification chain, and wearing protective gear.

The process has also be incorporated into our electronic medical record system, to ensure staff and patient safety.
