With temperatures souring to the high 80s and 90s in the Rockville and Gaithersburg MD area it’s imperative to be prepared for such extreme temperatures. The Montgomery County area can experience especially uncomfortable Summers because of the high humidity levels in the area. Children and seniors are especially susceptible to the risks that come with high temperatures so extra precautions by parents and care takers must be considered.
Despite the fact that there is more water in the atmosphere on a humid day, your body actually has a harder time cooling itself off in hot and humid weather. This is because the body uses sweat to cool itself off but when the atmosphere is already filled with moisture the effectiveness of sweat is severely decreased. Your body will loose moisture a lot faster in hot and humid weather therefore it is important to pack extra water when venturing outside.
We appreciate the opportunity to provide your medical care. Our patients mean the world to us! We would like to invite YOU, our current patients, to participate in our Refer-a-Friend Program.
Here’s how it works:
Thanks for your confidence in All Day Medical Care. Rest assured, you friend will get the same great care as you!
Spring is finally here meaning pleasant weather, sunnier days, and unfortunately more pollen. In the Rockville MD area, pollen season can start as early as February and can extend all the way until June. The current season has been relatively mild so far, mostly because of colder and rainy weather in March but when the area gets a string of sunny days that’s when pollen counts could explode. Early April counts for pollen were close to normal this year, averaging around 318 grains per cubic meter. Counts are predicted to surge into the 2000 grains per cubic meter range in early May based on data from previous years.
The biggest pollen offenders in Rockville come from oak, pine, and grass. Pollen coming from pine trees can be especially irritating because it is usually bigger compared to other tree pollens. Grass pollen on the other hand, is practically invisible to the human eye because it is microscopic. Uncut grass releases the most pollen since the plant needs to reach a certain hight in order to effectively release pollen. Grass pollen is usually more prevalent later in the allergy season, around mid to late spring.

A report published by the University of Wisconsin which ranks access to healthcare and health related habits in the United States has ranked Montgomery County as the healthiest county in Maryland. This is the second year in a row that Montgomery County has achieved the top ranking. The report analyses many factors like health behaviors, clinical care, and socioeconomic statistics to come to its conclusions. The only negative statistic reported was that the residents of Montgomery County face a strenuous commute, something that consistently gets rated as one of the worst commutes in the country.
As a healthcare provider in the Rockville and Gaithersburg area we are proud to be part of such a health-conscious community. We hope that our contribution can help keep our county at the top for years to come.
All Day Medical Care Clinic is partnering with local nonprofit Cheers, M.D. to host a back to school fair on August 16, 2014.
The fair, which is free and open to the public, will provide school supplies and health care information to children and their families. Refreshments, face painting and raffles will also be provided.
The Mayor of Gaithersburg, Sidney A. Katz will also make an appearance during this special event. Medical personnel, including physicians, will be on hand to answer any questions and provide tours of the clinic.
The fair is scheduled from 9-10 a.m. at ALL DAY Medical Care Clinic, 8945 North Westland Drive.
Think about all the dirty dishes that have lounged around in your kitchen sink before being put away into the dishwasher. Now think about that moist sponge that sits in or above your sink that you’ve used over and over to scrub the counter after cooking. Well, food particles from dirty dishes left to soak before being rinsed and put away into the dishwasher can certainly serve as a breeding ground for illness-causing bacteria which can include E. coli and salmonella. Bacteria-caused food poisoning illnesses can range from mild and can include stomach cramps and diarrhea to very serious infections that can even be fatal for people who are at a higher risk (i.e. children). Without extra precaution, the scary bacteria can be easily spread to your hands and into your family’s food.
Solution: Sanitize your sink and faucet every day with a bleach and hot water solution, allowing the solution to run down the drain to disinfect the disposal too. Use disposable, disinfectant wipes to clean your counters and make sure you wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap while cooking (especially with raw meats) and after cleaning.
Whether it’s a shared computer or just your personal laptop, your keyboard could be a host to all kinds of germs including E. coli and even staph! “Four of 33 sampled keyboards had enough germs to be considered health hazards. One had levels of germs five times higher than that found on a toilet seat.”
Solution: Try to wash your hands before AND after using the computer. Be careful not to drop food crumbs onto the keyboard if you eat while sending out that evening email. As for cleaning the keyboard, gently shake out the crumbs or vacuum it. Use a clean cloth or tissue with alcohol to disinfect the keys and mouse.
You would think this one is pretty obvious but how often do we do a thorough walk through our entire home, wiping and disinfecting all of these?
Solution: Use disinfectant wipes for all of these once a week, but make sure you use a fresh one after just a few of these objects so that you don’t end up spreading the germs instead of removing them. Here is a list of knobs and handles for disinfecting: Front door knobs, all other in-door knobs including bathroom, bedroom, and closet door knobs, all light switches, kitchen cabinet knobs and refrigerator and microwave door handles, kitchen and bathroom faucet handles, toilet handles, and washer, dryer, and stove-top knobs.
Yes, the items listed above may be great breeding grounds for bacteria on their own but you are the one who leaves and returns to your home several times a day after having interacted with germs from the office, day care, grocery store, and anywhere else.
Solution: Wash your hands properly! We’ve said this before but we will say it again because it is just so important in keeping you and everyone around you healthy, lowering your chances of getting sick, and reducing the spread of diarrheal and respiratory illnesses. “Experts advise that friction (especially between the fingers) and duration [of hand washing] are both important (CDC, 2013). Wash for 20 to 30 seconds, or the amount of time it takes to sing “The Alphabet Song” or a couple of rounds of “Row Your Boat.”
