B.I-INDEPENDENT ftMC*. CUM., PH., Mir. II, 1I« Seek Ambulance Agreement "(Continued from Page B-l) agreement, a n y ambulance fijTrt that picks up an emergency patient who cannot or refuses to pay, is reimbursed 1 a' percentage of the t o t a l costs by the county, when the patient was picked up on the 'directions of the California · Highway Patrol, Sheriff's Department or other authorized agency. The reason, they said, Is because 85% of the ambulance b u s i n e s s involves ' ' emergency cases, and since ' ' this is service to the county - ' it is only fair that the county '· pay for indigent, welfare anc 1 ' "deadbeat" cases if the pa-.' tient fails to pay for the serv- '· " ice within 120 days. ,' ^ # * t» * ' · ' THE SAME TYPE of pro 'gram is desired with the cities where the local police 1 .'department orders the am ·'' balance. Details of how this *··" could be accomplished is one ·'' : 'pf the problems the Leagui ' · ' o f Cities' committee w i l study. . The big pressure behind thi : ultimatum is a.recent opinion ' ' by the solicitor general of th ' ' "^United States, who told th ; "-'National Ambulance Associa "'"'''Hion that an ambulance serv '·''"'·ice comes under the regula '· ~ ' fions of the 1 n t e r s t a t Commerce Commission a n v "'"therefore must adhere to U.S " -Labor Department rulings. This means a m b u l a n c e rms must now pay employes, compliance with existing ederal wags and hour regula- ons, the reason being that nbliluiiCe fii'iiis pick Up Iraf- c accident victims on streets nd highways that ultimately onnect with highways and reeways partly paid for with ederal funds, and are there- ore assisting in the flow of nterstate traffic. · "It s o u n d s roundabout," Crane said, "but it means we ad to establish new working lours and pay schedules for )ur employes. * * * * "NONE OF US have been roud of the way in which we lave had to pay our employes n the p a s t , but it was p r o m p t e d simply by eco nomics. Overhead chews us up, particularly when we can' collect from patients. That is one reason most of us have een forced into a medica supplies-rental business on he side to support the am julance operation." They said the new rulini 'orces them to pay highe wages, but it also create; additional financial problem which could force some of thi firms out of business. Garden Grove Police Chie Charles Michaelis, whose cit of more than 100,000 boast only one fulltime ambulanc --(additional service can b acquired from adjacent cities --said he believes private en erprise offers adequate, effi- ient service to the public. · 'I don't know whether'Gar- en Grove would want to in- est in its own ambulance ervice," he said, "but I feel lat as long as the present ervice is adequate it should e retained." * * · * THE CITY of Staton has a ifferent view, and is one of wo cities in the state that lected to operate its own ambulance service. "This service, operated by lie fire department, has been unctioning for three years nci is doing nicely," accord ng to City Manager Stanley Lavery. "It took us a while to vork out the bugs but now. vith new equipment, we feel ve are providing adequate service for our residents." Lavery said the operational costs are not prohibitive. Local residents requiring an am julance for an emergency na ture--the department is nol permitted by law to handle lonemergency cases--are no' milled for the service, bu' nonresidents are charged i Hat $10 for emergency trans aortation to any point within 10 miles of the city. LAVERY started its SAID the c i t own ambulance service because "it had bee! an inconvenience waiting fo a private ambulance to arriv at the scene of an accident.' This complaint, Crane an lowers concurred. Is a com- lon one, but there is one ex- use that covers almost every elay. "We have a standing agree ment with law enforcement tiat we do not roll to the cene of a traffic accident un- 11 the police agency has arrived first and confirmed thai .n ambulance is required," h e y explained. "Normally, this delay is only a few minutes, unless traffic conditions ;low the ambulance, or the iccident occurred in one o! he r e m o t e areas of the county. * * * * "ANOTHER reason f o r a delay is that there are onlj about 20 ambulances servinj the county. If the ambulanc n a specific area is in servici it may take longer to bring in an ambulance from a nearb; area. This delay, however, ap plies only to traffic accidents If a private citizen calls abou an industrial accident; or on in the home, we roll imme diately. "Additionally, we are pri vate businessmen providin: an essential service that eaci city wants, but some cities in dicate they have no interes in the service other than keep it in force. We feel tha if tlie cities want this servic to continue they must share in our problems, specifically, economic problems." Today in L.B.
