THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1999 2B St. Mary's sees meeting of the moms :; as Good Sam phases out baby ward ! mm re VV PALM BEACH INTERACTIVE Up to 20 stories from 40 area communities. Click on 'Your Town" at www.GoPBI.comnews The two hospitals' maternity wards are being consolidated at a busy time for births. nacci said. ! While the number of women .' coming to deliver is reaching a .' peak, he said, St. Mary's has closed 16 beds in the maternity -wing for renovations, adding to the space crunch. Last week, the ; hospital finished converting 22 beds once used by patients recovering from surgery, Stefanac-ci said. The reconfigured maternity ward at St. Mary's will be spread across three floors and have 62 beds. : "For the next few weeks, it'll be inconvenient for some pa-tients, but the quality of care and safety will not be jeopardized," Stefanacci said. Intracoastal will have one : neonatal intensive care nurse on ' duty at Good Samaritan at all times until Oct 9. By then, all maternity and neonatal services' will have been moved to St Mary's. By Sanjay Bhatt Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WEST PALM BEACH A new mother found herself sharing a private room with another new mom recently at St. Mary's Medical Center. Hospital officials said it was "truly an exception," a first in recent memory, but acknowledge it will happen again over the next few weeks as Intracoastal Health Systems finishes closing the county's oldest maternity ward at Good Samaritan Hospital and converting rooms at St. Mary's Medical Center. Intracoastal owns both hospitals in West Palm Beach. Many pregnant women who were scheduled to deliver at Good Samaritan have chosen to move to St. Mary's, Intracoastal officials said. But the not-for-profit company also is transferring some patients from Good Samaritan to St. Mary's as it reduces staff. "Sometimes they close the unit and have to shift (pregnant women) because they don't have the staff to care for them," said Denise Roser, administrator for OBGYN Specialists of the Palm Beaches. The group practice used to deliver 100 babies a month at Good Samaritan and still has women scheduled to give birth there. The consolidation of the maternity wards came at one of the busiest months of the year for births at the two hospitals, Intracoastal spokesman Dennis Stefa- i J A, J CALLIE LIPKINStaff Photographer Chrysler Show Sunday.

Parasites make them squirrelly The Associated Press KISSIMMEE Biologists say squirrels in the southeastern United States may appear to act a little strangely this summer, rolling around, scratching and biting themselves. That's because a common, harmless parasite is making them itchy. Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission say the squirrels are probably suffering from a skin irritation caused by a parasite known as the bot fly. This is an annoying, but rarely serious, condition that often afflicts squirrels in the southeastern United States this time of year. Squirrels have been seen rolling on the ground, biting or scratching themselves and even jumping up and down. The commission's office in Ocala has been so besieged by calls from people worried about the furry rodents that it issued a statement Thursday to reassure the public. Late summer usually is mating season for bot flies, and an itchy time for rabbits and rodents. The skin irritations often appear in places where squirrels can't scratch like on their backs or behind their legs.
