    Stink bug extinction methods abound; don't try them all at once

    I missed the Plague of Locusts. Just so that I didn't feel left out, the universe sent me earwigs: slim insects that look like a stealth bomber with pinchers. They don't bite (don't know what the pinchers are for) and especially like damp places, the shower being particularly enticing for them. They like to congregate en masse in one's house, which is seriously creepy.

HUNTINGTON, WV -

Cabell Huntington Hospital has selected registered nurse Rebecca Edwards, a longtime staff nurse and clinical coordinator, to lead the hospital's senior fracture program.

Edwards, now senior fracture program coordinator, will lead the hospital's initiative to provide advanced care to seniors age 65 and older who experience hip fractures through falls, accidents or bone deterioration.

The program's aim is to give seniors a better chance at returning to their pre-injury functional level after a hip fracture. While the program will focus on effective pain management, prevention of complications and bone health followup and management, Edwards also will lead a team that will raise the community's awareness about the importance of bone health and fall prevention.

Edwards joined Cabell Huntington in 1990 after she received her bachelor's degree in nursing from the Ohio State University School of Nursing. 

Before joining Cabell Huntington Hospital's Senior Services Department in 2012, she worked on the neuroscience unit for 21 years as both a staff nurse and clinical coordinator. 

She became a certified neuroscience registered nurse in 2001 by fulfilling requirements set by the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses.

Opened in 1956, Cabell Huntington is a 303-bed academic medical center that cares for patients from more than 29 counties throughout West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio. A teaching hospital, it is affiliated with Marshall University schools of medicine and nursing.
