Hospitals in L.A. County could absorb some patients if King-Harbor closes

first_imgIf not, local hospitals could find it difficult to give the type of care that emergency rooms must provide, he said. “We can make the county’s plan work if everyone acknowledges that the capacity needs to increase,” said Jim Lott, the association’s executive vice president. LOS ANGELES Hospitals in Los Angeles County could absorb patients from Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital if the facility closed, but only if more emergency room and critical care beds were added nearby, according to a report released Monday. “That means that an ambulance will bypass a hospital that is open only because it took the last patient,” Lott said. “It will increase waiting times and treatment times.” Dr. Bruce Chernof, county director of health services, said in the contingency plan that closing King-Harbor would have “an adverse impact on the [emergency care] system and on this medically underserved community.” But Lott cautioned that the county cannot plan for whether walk-in emergency patients near King-Harbor would travel on their own to other hospitals or whether specialized emergency physicians at those hospitals would be willing to treat an influx of indigent patients. The Hospital Assn. of Southern California measured the emergency capacity near King-Harbor and determined that an additional 20 emergency room beds and four critical care beds were needed at hospitals within a 3-mile radius of the facility in Willowbrook, south of Watts. The association issued its report after last week’s release of the county’s contingency plans in case the public hospital is closed. The number of emergency room visits to be absorbed is less than first thought, Lott said. The report found that since the downsizing of King-Harbor last year, the number of emergency room visits to the facility is expected to fall from 47,000 in 2006 to 25,000 this year. Lott agreed. He said that even with the extra beds, patients could face delays in getting to hospitals. He noted that if King-Harbor were shut immediately, the county plans to send ambulances to different hospitals on a rotating basis.last_img read more

Tottenham ready to make player available for exit – Spurs want…

first_imgJuan Foyth could be edging towards his exit from Tottenham Hotspur, according to claims from the Italian media today. Website Calcio Mercato reports that the defender is looking for more minutes, and a move to Serie A is a possibility for the summer window.The outlet claims Tottenham are willing to make Foyth available on a swap deal or a sale, demanding between €12m and €15m in this case.And the Argentine international wouldn’t be short of options in Italy, since the likes of Atalanta, Fiorentina and AC Milan have all been keeping an eye on him.Embed from Getty ImagesIt’s claimed Foyth’s entourage had contacts with Atalanta and Fiorentina in the past, and these talks could resume in the coming weeks.On Milan’s case, Calcio Mercato writes that the Rossoneri have ‘shown interest’, despite being only ‘preliminary’. With a couple of defenders leaving them this summer, Foyth could be an option.The website makes it clear that none of these clubs have made concrete moves so far, but Foyth is expected to be an attractive option for the summer, ‘both for his price as for his potential’.Tottenham selling for €15m or less sounds uncharacteristically generous.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
