By PAUL PRICE Staff Writer BOYNTON BEACH - A human or mechanical error in programming a computer used by Bethesda Memorial Hospital resulted in overcharges for all "special care" patients for a time this summer. The overcharging and resulting refunds by the hospital came to light after rumors of flagrant overcharging had racked the local area. Floyd M. Kline, assistant administrator for fiscal affairs at Bethesda, acknowledged Thursdav that Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) patients at the hospital in July and August were overcharged. "This sounds like passing the buck to the computer" Kline said Thursday. "However, the facts are that we went on the computer for all patient billings as of July 1. There was a programming mistake that was with us for some time, but has now been clarified, I believe, in all instances." Kline cited a "for instance." A patient was in the ICU for which the daily charge was $75 per day I the rate was and is the same for special care in the CCU). When moved to a private room with bath, a "change order" was placed into the computer to lower the daily rate to the published $46.50. The computer would make the change for that day. The new $46.50 daily rate should have stayed. However, due to the programming error the computer would, except for the one day on which the "change order" was received, go back to the $75 daily rate. Overcharging resulted, obviously. "We regretted it," Kline said, "but it was one of those things that plagued us as we went to something new." The assistant administrator said that Bethesda has the lowest prices for care of any Palm Beach County hospital. And he emphasized that charges are the same for everybody. He said that Blue Cross has approved all room charges. Of Bethesda's total revenue, only 11 per cent comes from taxes, according to Kline.
