SEXUAL ASSAULT: Team of nurses specially trained to help victims
Written by BY SARAH BURGE / PE.COM STAFF WRITER   

Collecting rape kits on the Sexual Assault Response Team is "mentally and physically an exhausting job" but for some members, it becomes a calling.

These nurses see patients on what could easily be the worst day of their lives.

The five-woman team of specially trained RNs collect what are commonly known as rape kits, which involve a highly invasive exam performed as soon as possible after a sexual assault. For them, collecting the kits is a full-time job.

They're forensic examiners with the Sexual Assault Response Team at Riverside County Regional Medical Center.

The team works out of a tiny exam room at the Moreno Valley hospital, providing services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"Generally, it's a very, very hard field to recruit for because – think about it – who wants to see victims of sexual assault all the time?" said Gloria Davis, the nurse practitioner who manages the team. "It's mentally and physically an exhausting job."

Many nurses need to move on after two or three years, she said. But for others, it becomes a passion.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: First flu death reported
Written by BY JAN SEARS / PE.COM STAFF WRITER   

Flu season usually hits hard in February, so there’s still time to get a vaccination, physicians say

The year’s first influenza death in a person under age 65 was confirmed in Southern California on Friday by state public health officials, who warned that this winter’s flu season could be severe.

Influenza levels in California still are lower than elsewhere in the nation, but flu season usually doesn’t peak here until February, officials at Riverside County Regional Medical Center said.

State officials would not say in which Southern California county the death occurred, but local health officials said it was not Riverside or San Bernardino counties.

People who have not yet received an influenza vaccination are urged to do so right away, health officials said. The vaccinations are widely available at doctor’s offices, public health clinics and pharmacies. It takes about two weeks to develop immunities after receiving the shot.

RIVERSIDE: County hospital holds reunion for preemies
Written by LAURIE WILLIAMS / CONTRIBUTING WRITER   
Something didn't feel right to Bianca Marr, about six months pregnant with twins, as she drove from her Moreno Valley home to her job in Riverside on Sept. 26 of last year.

"I didn't know what it was, but I turned around and drove to the hospital instead," she said.

Her babies, Noah and Nevaeh, were born three months early at Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley. They were tiny – Noah three pounds, six ounces, and Nevaeh two pounds, 12 ounces. Lungs not ready for independent breathing, the twins stayed in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Noah for 10 weeks and Nevaeh for 12.

On Saturday, Nov. 29, at a Christmas-theme party at the Riverside Convention Center, Marr and her twins reunited with some of the NICU staff who cared for the children and met up with other families whose children have been treated in the NICU.

The guests of honor at the gathering, the hospital's first NICU reunion in several years, were 5 years old and younger. They enjoyed a variety of treats plus a chance to talk to Santa Claus. For most parents in attendance, it was also an opportunity to show off how well the former patients have been doing.
