Empire State College, Community Health Nursing, Lyncourt town of salina

  1. 1. Windshield Surveyof Lyncourt, NY<br />Empire State College<br />Community Health Nursing<br />Candace Finch, RN<br />
  2. 2. Lyncourt-Town of SalinaSyracuse, NY 13208<br />A Suburban Community <br />Located in North-Eastern Syracuse<br />
  3. 3. Located in Central New York, Onondaga County<br />Lyncourt, NY<br />X<br />Wikipedia Foundation, Inc., 2011 <br />Lyncourt is a community that’s boundaries lie between New Court Avenue, <br />Darlington Road, the train tracks behind the Syracuse China factory and Sehr Park,<br /> Lemoyne Avenue, Assumption and Woodlawn Cemeteries, and Grant Boulevard.<br />
  4. 4. Lyncourt<br />Lyncourt is located in the northeastern part of Syracuse, New York. When describing where Lyncourt is located, residents will tell you, “it is near Syracuse China.” <br />Syracuse China was founded in 1871 and was once the leading manufacturer of home and food service china (as cited in The Glass Cottage, 2010). Many persons in the Lyncourt area were employed at Syracuse China and took pride in their craft.<br />Libbey Glass Company purchased Syracuse China in 1995 (as cited in The Glass Cottage, 2010) and closed the facility in 2009. <br />The factory now stands empty and for sale. The loss of Syracuse China has left a large hole in the community. <br />According to the US Census in 2000:<br />Total population: 4268 persons; 4,027 are Caucasian<br />Median age: 41.4<br />(U.S. Census Bureau)<br />
  5. 5. Syracuse China Factory vacated in 2009. Libbey Glass Company moved it’s <br />production of restaurant china to Mexico. The impact to the community included<br />unemployment, a loss in tax revenue, and left behind an empty building that once <br />employed generations of china workers. Now the Syracuse China Factory is a rotting fortress of desolation and despair. <br />
  6. 6. Assumption Cemetery<br />Assumption Cemetery is located on the western edge of Lyncourt.<br />Assumption is a Catholic cemetery with many beautiful statues and vaults.<br />Assumption has rolling hills and multiple winding roadways lined with lush trees and lawns. <br />Assumption is a quiet place to take a stroll.<br />
  7. 7. Assumption Cemetery<br />
  8. 8. For babies born from 2005 through 2007, the Onondaga county infant mortality rate per 1,000 live births is 6.6 (Morrow, 2009, p. 5). For Black infants, this rate is 14.5, compared to 5.2 for White infants (Morrow, 2009, p. 5). In Syracuse, the overall infant death rate is 8.3 per 1,000 live births, with 14.3 deaths per 1,000 live births among Black infants compared to 5.7 per 1,000 among White infants (as cited in Morrow, 2009, p.5). This data indicates that the disparity in infant mortality between Black and White infants is countywide and cannot be attributed solely to factors associated with living in an urban vs. suburban or rural area (Morrow, 2009, p. 5).<br />Assumption Children’s Cemetery <br />
  9. 9. Infant Mortality<br />Nurses who work for the Onondaga County Health Department in the Healthy Families Unit maintain records and investigate infant deaths which include premature birth, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, violence, and disease. They also connect with families to help in the grieving process. The nurses also educate women who are pregnant in nutrition, expectations of pregnancy, labor, and delivery, infant care, breastfeeding, “back to sleep” program, and immunizations. The nurses are also responsible for follow-up to women who have babies that are born prematurely or underweight. They follow babies up to 2 years of age if needed.<br />
  10. 10. Lyncourt Fire District<br />Lyncourt Fire Department is a volunteer run organization and operates out of one facility. <br />The fire house is located in the center of Lyncourt on Court Street. <br />There are approximately 50 volunteers who respond to fire-calls and emergencies on an as needed basis.<br />Rural Metro Ambulance responds to medical emergencies in the Lyncourt area. <br />

  12. 12. Lyncourt does not have its own police force. Lyncourt uses the Onondaga County Sherriff’s Department to maintain security and fight crime. <br />(Onondaga County, 2001-2005)<br />
  13. 13. Lyncourt School<br />Lyncourt Union Free School District is a unique Pre-K through 8th grade district with a current enrollment of approximately 350 students. The district is located on the northern edge of the city of Syracuse in the town of Salina, New York. Lyncourt students attend high school at the nearby Solvay Union Free School District or one of the many local private or parochial high schools.<br />(Lyncourt Union Free School, 2009)<br />
  14. 14. Lyncourt School, Pre-K – 8th GradesU.S. Census 2000 statistics: 2,456 persons have graduated high school or higher (U.S. Census Bureau). Most children walk to Lyncourt school. <br />
  15. 15. Lyncourt Churches<br />Lyncourt has two churches located on Court Street. Saint Daniels Church observes the Catholic faith and Lyncourt Wesleyan church observes the Wesleyan faith. Each church is open to the public and has religious services throughout the week.<br />Each of the Lyncourt churches have multiple outreach programs to local parishioners.<br />Lyncourt Wesleyan Church has a Burmese Bible School which trains Burmese refugees to become pastors. These pastors go on to minister to the Burmese population in the Syracuse, Utica, Western NY areas, and worldwide. <br />62% of Lyncourt residents classify themselves as Catholics (as cited in City-Data, 2011).<br />
  16. 16. St.Daniel’s Church<br />
  17. 17. Lyncourt Wesleyan Church<br />The high refugee population that attend Lyncourt Wesleyan Church is mainly Burmese.

Sehr Park is open year round and provides opportunities for increased physical activity.<br />
  19. 19. Sehr Park<br />The community health nurse promotes health. Obesity is a concern in the Lyncourt area. A focus on increased physical activity, decrease in smoking, and better nutrition is an important factor in health promotion.<br />
  20. 20. Homes in Lyncourt<br />There are multiple single family dwellings along with apartment complexes in Lyncourt. <br />Tree lined streets create a feeling of security and protection from the elements. <br />Most streets have sidewalks that allow for safe places to walk and for children to play. <br />Most residents use personal cars to commute to and from jobs. Centro bus services are available on a regular schedule along Teall Ave and Court St. The Amtrak station is three miles from Lyncourt.<br />
  21. 21. Homes in Lyncourt<br />Housing condition is another important factor of the physical environment relating to health. 65% of the houses in Onondaga County were built prior to 1970, which increases the risk of lead poisoning( Morrow, 2009, p. 13). In addition, of nearly 8,000 homes screened for radon in Onondaga County in 2008, 47% had levels above 4 pCi/L, the action level recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (as cited in Morrow, 2009, p. 13). County Health Nurses provide lead screening and visit homes where children who have been identified as having high lead levels. They teach parents on prevention and safety along with follow-up for children with lead poisoning. <br />
