 by: George Gremminger

Thank you for inviting me to speak at the Perkolator breakfast on March 8th. Here is a quick recap on Having the right solutions in place today, ensuring less stressful tomorrows and how The Connection, Inc. can help you focus on your business and growth while we focus on your technology.
Security, Backup and Disaster Recovery
Did you know that employees account for 43% of data loss? These mistakes can come in the form of accidental deletion of imperative files, opening a suspicious email or attachment, or by simply leaving their computer unlocked when they go home at the end of the day.
Your business is also vulnerable to threats that can come from external forces, i.e., computer viruses and malware, natural disasters or power failures.
You have no choice but to assume that a disaster will take place. The question at this point is not if…but when.
Here’s an interesting article on Data Loss Statistics that all business owners need to know.
Data loss prevention should not be an after-thought:
• Prepare now!
• Do you have a plan?
• Have you tested that plan?
Without proper safe-guards in place, your company could be exposed to critical data loss and disruption of business.
Ask yourself these questions:
• Do I know where my company’s confidential data being stored, who is accessing it, and where it’s being sent?
• Does my company have a plan for safeguarding and protecting critical data from intruders and accidental loss?
• Am I well versed in the liability, negative exposure, fines and lost revenue associated with data breaches?
• Does my company have Cyber Liability Insurance?
If you answered NO to any of these questions, contact us at 732-291-5938 or
Support for Windows 7
Support for Windows 7 is coming to an end. After January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. They will, however, offer “extended support” for a price and no new features will be released.
For Healthcare Providers, any computer running Windows 7 after it has reached End of Life is no longer protected, and therefore no longer HIPAA compliant.
Upgrading will take time and planning; the time to begin planning is now. Let us guide you through this process.

How to Find Your Passion and Become Unstoppable in Your Business

I work with women who feel depleted because they sacrificed their energy for others. I help them rebuild their health so they can stand in their power and live their life on their terms!

I have been asked by a lot of people how I achieve success in helping people live on their terms. So, to best explain it, I will use my clients’ success stories and as well, get you started today on my powerful process.

I will share with you the case of my dear client, Sara. She showed up in my office because she had anxiety about public speaking. She worked at a big corporation and had just being promoted to the position of being the Head of Human Resources Department. Her new position required her to frequently speak in public, participate in major social events, and facilitate live and remote trainings for employees and top executives in the organization. Every time she was on stage addressing the public while looking at her colleagues sitting in the first row, her knees trembles, her throat closes up, and her body becomes frozen. She would forget her speech and would feel a devastating pain in her solar plexus. After every public speaking event, she always needed to take 2 days off from work in order to recover from the stress-related issues caused by her fear of public speaking.


Sub-Acute Care: How Do You Plan?

We know the importance of planning for the future.  Unfortunately none of us plan to have a critical illness, injury, or accident that lands us in the hospital.  These days, hospital stays are shorter than ever, and then you’re told to choose a “sub-acute rehab” to go to because you can’t go home yet.  How do you plan for that?  And what is a “sub-acute rehab” anyhow?

Atrium Post Acute Care of Matawan is a sub-acute rehab.  “Sub-acute and “Post-acute” mean the same thing when it comes to rehab facilities.  It literally means AFTER your stay in a hospital (which is an “acute” care facility).  It’s important to have a basic understanding of this just in case an unfortunate event happens to you or someone you care about.  If you’re in the hospital for more than 2 or 3 days, your doctor may discharge you to a rehab facility to continue your treatment and recovery.  You have a choice of WHICH facility you go to.  How do you choose?

All post-acute rehabs provide around-the-clock nursing care, and provide Physical, Occupational, and/or Speech Therapy based on your condition, and orders from your doctor.  Most often, your stay will be covered entirely, or at least in part, by your health insurance.  The length of your stay will depend on your condition and your progress toward returning home safely.

The best way to know which rehab to choose is ask people you trust, do some research, and most importantly take a tour and get to know the place ahead of time.  Unfortunately most people don’t do this because they don’t think they will ever need it…. Until they do.  Then there’s no time to do it.  Take the time now.  Go visit a few.  How do they look? Smell? Feel? How is the staffing? Are they friendly? Professional? How are the patient outcomes? Ask about medical specialists or special services they provide.

I invite you to tour Atrium Post Acute Care of Matawan to learn more.  We are a 5-star facility as rated by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (  We have RNs, LPNs, Nurses Aides, and Respiratory Therapists always on-site, 24/7. Our Physical Therapy department works every day, even weekends.  We have medical specialists in pulmonology, cardiology, neurology, infectious disease, and wound care, to name a few. In addition to post-acute care, we have a specialty Ventilator Unit, provide long-term care, respite care, and have Assisted Living as well.

If you have any questions or want to know more about sub-acute care, or to schedule a tour of the Atrium, feel free to contact me. –Sandy Palermo, RN, BSN, Director of Marketing at Atrium Post Acute Care of Matawan., 973-897-8114.
