Parker Jewish Institute ‘Weathers’ Sandy’s Storm

Facility is currently caring for 18 evacuees from Brooklyn.

The residents, patients and staff of Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation remained safe and comfortable throughout the landfall and aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Parker’s programs and services continue to operate normally.

“The dedication of Parker’s staff, combined with years of careful, emergency planning and preparedness drills, to empower Parker, literally, to weather the storm,” Parker President and CEO Michael N. Rosenblut said in a statement.

In addition to taking care of its own residents and patients, Parker responded to requests for assistance in New York City and Nassau County. The facility is caring for 18 evacuees from the Shore View Nursing Home in Brooklyn and 19 evacuees from the Komanoff Center for Geriatrics and Rehabilitation Medicine in Long Beach.

As was the case during last year's Hurricane Irene, Parker's medical transportation division, Lakeville Ambulette Transportation, LLC, and its staff, provided assistance to many displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
