Critical Care Providers Should Know

The state of Tennessee provides a wealth of detailed health information for TN residents at their website. Tennessee and Shelby County take numerous steps to help improve the health of their residents. On June 11th, 2007 the Governor signed the Tennessee Non-Smokers Protection Act into law which made it illegal to smoke in most places where people work. Another issue legislators seek to improve is teen pregnancy. Teen pregnancy has been rising in Memphis and in Tennessee. “What’s The Rush?” is a statewide effort to educate and prevent teen pregnancy.

Shelby County’s top five leading causes of death were:

  1. Malignant Neoplasms

  2. Diseases of the heart

  3. Accidents and adverse effects

  4. Certain perinatal conditions

  5. Assault (Homicide)

The state operates TennCare which is a service that extends medical coverage to individuals who are deemed to be uninsured or uninsurable. TennCare uses a system of Managed Care Organizations to operate the service. In 2005 the TennCare service stopped accepting general applications although individuals under 19 years of age who qualify can still apply for acceptance. TennCare is currently working with the federal officials on discerning how TennCare will provide medical coverage in conjunction with the nationalAffordable Care Act which was passed in 2010.

About Memphis

Memphis was founded in 1819 and is located along the Mississippi River. While this city doesn’t get extreme cold like some of the northwestern states, it does suffer from a lot of ice storms during the winter which can leave locals without power for some period of time.

There aren’t a ton of tourist attractions in Memphis, but the ones that are there tend to draw in very specific types of travelers. For instance, Graceland is extremely popular with people from all over the world who still adore and miss the legend music star Elvis. Graceland takes visitors through the life of Elvis from his younger years up to his years one of the most famous and well known figures in American history.

In fact, the city is still well known for its rich culture rooted in the blues. Beale Street is visited regularly by locals and travelers who enjoy strolling along and listening to professionals as well as amateurs stringing out the blues.

Many visitors to this city simply enjoy getting out in different areas of the city and exploring whatever they can find. Carriage rides are available in many different areas of the city, providing a romantic way to get to know the city for couples or anyone who just wants to see the city without wearing out their shoes.
