Lovelace Westside Hospital has recently expanded its range of care options with the addition of a wound care clinic and new services for women.
The wound care clinic opened in October with two staffers who are certified by the National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy, occupational therapist Ann Marie Santoyo and physical therapist Angela Arbelaez.
Joe Sanchez, a jocular 84-year-old retired U.S. Army lieutenant, was vacuuming inside his Uptown home on the hot, sunny afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 13, while Sally, his wife of more than 60 years, was dusting in the kitchen and living room.
Suddenly, Joe experienced a back pain so shocking, unprecedented and severe he had to stop and sit down. When he began to moan, their son Bruce told his mother to call 911.
