WARREN GENERAL HOSPITAL SAFE HAVEN NOTICE   All Hospitals in Pennsylvania are Safe Havens including WARREN GENERAL HOSPITAL.  We are there to protect your baby if you are not able to care for the baby properly.  All you have to do is bring your newborn, (up to 28 days old), into the Hospital lobby and drop the baby off with any staff member.  That’s all there is to it. As long as the baby is unharmed and the baby is not a victim of any crime, you will not be in any trouble.   No one will ask you any questions; no one will judge you and no one will say a word about your baby.  In fact, you don’t even have to give your name or address.   You can provide medical information for the baby.  But you don’t have to answer any

Marcy O’BRIEN   Warren Times Observer Newspapaer article   Editor’s note: This is the first of two parts regarding an individual’s experience battling COVID-19 and the efforts of those who work at Warren General Hospital.   It started with a cold on a Tuesday morning . . . just a normal winter congestion, I thought.   Oh, wait a minute, don’t some of the COVID infections begin with colds and go into upper respiratory distress? Nah, couldn’t be me – we’ve not gone anywhere.   Dear Richard has done all the shopping and errands out of the house since March.

I’ve thought they might need all new leather equipment by 2021 for the amount of scrubbing the leather receives after every use.   I canceled at the therapists Wednesday morning because the cold wasn’t improved; in fact it moved into a fever Wednesday evening. Thursday night was worse, prompting me to drive through the federal testing site at Warren State Hospital Friday morning. Sitting in the traffic line I began to lose my optimism – I felt crumby and shaky and
