Fernie Hospital continues to lose resources despite IHA claims of status quo, 26 Feb 2003 [cached]
Chief Operating Officer for the Interior Health Authority, Linda Basran, was in Fernie Tuesday to meet with the Elk Valley Medical Advisory Committee.Discussions included the future of the Fernie Hospital Operating Room; in-patient services and acute care; radiology concerns and emergency health services transportation issues.In a short interview with the Free Press Basran still insists there will be no major changes to the Fernie Operating Room "until Cranbrook Regional Hospital has sustainable continuous coverage for the residents of the East Kootenay."Everything is status quo here until Cranbrook reaches status quo," she said.
But Fernie's Dr. Colm Nally said even though Basran made the meeting sound chipper the majority of doctors and staff aren't so impressed.
McBeath says he has tried to tell the IHA and Basran their plan is hurting more people than helping them.Due to their cuts McBeath says the Fernie Hospital is operating at between 90 per cent and 110 per cent of capacity and have turned their daycare into overflow."We tell them the plan doesn't seem quite right and we need more resources than this and they say it's not sustainable," he said."They meet with us because I think they need to show us they're communicating but there's no signs that they're listening - it's all a step backwards - there's no place to go for help."
McBeath says Basran has simply told him there aren't any resources out there."They do not have a plan for improving the health services to be adequate," he said.
