Symptoms of a heart attack began to present themselves while 59 year old Jim Patton of Pikeville was working in his home office on December 28, 2017.

“It was a different type of pain than anything I had experienced in the past,” said Patton.  “My chest was very tight and it actually felt like there was a heavy weight sitting on my chest.  I was having some very slight pain in my left arm, my breathing was a little strained, and I was slightly nauseated.”

He said the symptoms were nothing he was overly worried about but the tightness in his chest was an issue that was becoming a concern.

“I decided it was time to go visit the Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) emergency department,” he said.  “I am not someone who goes to the hospital, except to visit someone, but I felt like the Lord was telling me to get up and go.”

As soon as Patton arrived, he moved quickly through the hospital. He said the emergency department(ED) was so crowded there were no available seats yet the staff responded unbelievably fast. They had a wheelchair waiting for him in the amount of time it took him to sign his name.

“They wheeled me straight to room number 22 where a team of doctors and nurses were waiting for me,” he said. “I was never alone, except for the 60 seconds it took me to put on a hospital gown. Actually, I was not alone then either because God was right there.”

After a quick EKG Patton was told he either had a heart attack or was in the process of having one.

“Off to the cath lab we went.” Said Patton. “I had 99 percent blockage in my right coronary artery, due to a blood clot. They removed the clot and placed a stent in the area of the blockage to prevent further issues.”

Patton says within two hours from the time he entered the front door of the emergency department, he had been diagnosed, treated and moved to the ICU where he continued to get excellent care.

“In less than 48 hours I was home watching football,” he said. “It is hard to explain how fast your life can change but within a matter of days my life sure has. If not for the Grace of God and the outstanding response of the Pikeville Medical Center ED and cardiac team my life could have ended.

Patton and his wife Jonda say they are still every emotional about the entire chain of events.

Jonda said, “We are just very, very thankful. We just cannot say thank you enough, first off to our Lord and Savior, and then PMC and of course our church family at the Pikeville Freewill Baptist Church.”

Patton said, “All our praise and glory goes to our Heavenly Father first and foremost. I can never thank PMC, the PMC Emergency Department, the Cardiac Care Team and the countless others who cared for me. Jonda and I will be eternally grateful.”

Patton says as a pastor he has been in countless hospitals but was amazed at the professionalism and compassion he saw at PMC.

“I do not think PMC gets enough credit for the team they have put together. The cardiac team is just excellent.  Trust me, I have never seen a more impressive response to anything, anywhere.  I do not think I could ever find a more impressive response than what I actually experienced.” 

Patton is continuing his recovery process in phase two of cardiac rehabilitation at PMC.

For information about heart care at Pikeville Medical Center Heart and Vascular Institute or the PMC Cardiac Rehab Center call 606-218-2201.

PIKEVILLE — The Kentucky Department for Public Health, within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), now describes influenza activity in Kentucky as an epidemic.

The flu (influenza) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by various influenza viruses.  Serious outcomes of the flu can lead to hospitalization and even death if not properly treated.  The flu is most common in the fall and winter and peaks in the months of December through February.

The most common flu type identified in Kentucky is influenza A.  It has resulted in 78 percent of the 65 influenza-associated deaths this season, according to the CHFS. Of those deaths, 7 percent were identified as influenza A.

Signs and symptoms of the flu are: cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue, and in some cases vomiting and diarrhea.

People with the flu can spread it to other up to six feet away, so it is important to stay vigilant and learn how to protect yourself and your family from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has suggested guidelines to best protect yourself against this crisis. The flu vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, and it’s not too late to get vaccinated. It is important to understand that after receiving the vaccination it takes two weeks for the antibodies to develop in the body to protect against the flu.

 Here are additional prevention tips from the CDC website:

•Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

•While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.

•If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medicine).

•Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

•Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

•Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

•Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

For more information on the flu epidemic, visit http://chfs.ky.gov/dph/epi/Influenza.htm or the CDC website at www.cdc.gov.

PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Center officials are warning patients and the community of a phone scam that is requesting personal information.

“When these calls are being placed it is showing up on the phone ID as PMC,” Information Security Officer Steve Endicott said. “I’ve received three or four calls reporting that individuals are asking for credit card information.”

Chief Information Officer Tony Damron said the technique is called “spoofing,” which is a part of phishing.

“This occurs when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity,” Damron explained.

Endicott added that PMC would never ask for any personal information over the phone and if you do receive a call from individuals to simply hang up.

“It’s something that is becoming more common,” Endicott said. “We’ve had vendor calling here trying to sell us software that shows up as a local number and the individual is actually in California.”

Damron stressed that spoofing is often used as part of an attempt to trick someone into giving away valuable personal information so it can be used in fraudulent activity or sold illegally.

“We can’t say it enough, but never, ever give out personal information over the phone,” Damron said. “PMC doesn’t operate that way and please don’t fall victim to this scam.”

U.S. law and FCC rules prohibit most types of spoofing.

Here are a number of tips to follow:

•Never give out personal information such as account numbers, Social Security numbers, mother’s maiden name, passwords or other identifying information in response to unexpected calls or if you are at all suspicious. 

•If you get an inquiry from someone who says they represent a company or a government agency seeking personal information, hang up and call the phone number on your account statement, in the phone book or on the company’s or government agency’s website to verify the authenticity of the request.

•Use caution if you are being pressured for information immediately.

•If you have a voice mail account with your phone service, be sure to set a password for it.  Some voicemail services are preset to allow access if you call in from your own phone number.  A hacker could spoof your home phone number and gain access to your voice mail if you do not set a password.

Caller ID was made possible to let individuals avoid unwanted phone calls by displaying caller names and phone numbers.”

“It is sometimes manipulated by spoofers who identify themselves as banks, creditors, hospital officials or others. I can’t stress enough to never give your information out.”
