Critical Care Providers Should Know

The state of Nevada is currently ranked 42nd out of the 50 states in terms of public health and health issues by the United Health Foundation. Despite a low ranking, Nevada is an oddity within the United States, because the health of its citizens is diverse. Health concerns such as infant mortality, infectious diseases, and obesity are better than the national benchmark. On the other hand, health indicators such as smoking, high cholesterol, and strokes have traditionally performed lower than the nationally average.

In August of 2011, the state of Nevada received nearly $10 million in federal grant money earmarked for long-term and in-home care services. With the grant money, Nevada has touted several state goals in terms of its health care. The state of Nevada wants to enhance communication between different agencies. Nevada wants to improve the coordination of caring for patients with Medicaid and Medicare. Also, the Nevada Department of Public Health is going to draft a committee which will try to figure out how to reduce spending in nursing homes and home services without sacrificing the level of care.

In late 2011, Nevada also changed its health administration team. It is the state's hope that the new administrators will be able to reach new goals in order to help improve the overall care of its citizens.

About Nevada

Nevada is the 36th state, admitted to the Union on October 31, 1864. It's major city, Las Vegas, is a huge international draw and is nicknamed "Sin City," because of its draw of gambling and other infamous vices. Many couples are drawn to the area for "just for grown ups" fun, and still others bring their kids for a whole-family adventure.

Families may definitely not appreciate the fact that prostitution is legal in Nevada with exceptions in certain city limits, such as within the Las Vegas city limits. There are plenty of places for adults to enjoy gambling, shows, comedy, and clubs. But while Las Vegas and Reno are very well-known for their adults-only party scene, there is more in Nevada than just gambling and shows. Family-oriented activities include hiking, biking, skiing, wilderness attractions, museums, and state parks.

Other attractions include Ghost Towns, museums, off-roading (ATV), scenic byways, auto racing, and plenty of cultural activities. But even Las Vegas and Reno have something that's good and fun for the kids - such as Reno's Ultimate Rush Speed & Thrill Park, or M&M'S World Las Vegas. Sparks offers a water park for the hot summers - Wild Island Family Adventure Park. Even more sites for the whole family include a plethora of zoos and even aquariums.

Nevada is also known for sumptuous spa resorts, such as David Walley's Hot Springs & Spa (historically significant for its visits by several Presidents of the US). Other world-class resorts attract international guests, and pampering visitors to the spas is practically commonplace.

The cost of living is more expensive overall in Nevada, with an overall index of 107 compared to the national average of 100. Food costs are at 105 on the index, while utilities are less expensive at 93. Miscellaneous expenses, such as clothing, restaurants, repairs, and other services, are more expensive at 103. Accommodations range from very expensive luxury hotels and suites to campgrounds and RV parks, small motels and motor inns.
