- SF supes demand Sutter Health keep long-term beds in Mission
By Rachel Swan - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
The request came at the end of a raucous, at times tearful meeting of the supervisors’ Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee, where scores of doctors, nurses and patient relatives accused Sutter of putting money ahead of the sick and dying.“We want you to go back to your executives and say, ‘Our staff is unified, the supervisors are unified, the Department of Public Health is unified — they all want to keep this unit open,’” said committee chair Supervisor Hillary Ronen.The closure of San Francisco’s only subacute nursing unit is part of a plan to make way for two new hospitals in Sutter’s California Pacific Medical Center network — one to replace St. Luke’s Hospital in the Mission, which houses the doomed subacute and skilled nursing unit, the other at Van Ness Avenue and Geary Boulevard.Both new hospitals are only licensed to have regular beds, which are expected to fill up daily with surgery patients, mothers delivering babies and other people with medical emergencies, said Mary Lanier, chief administrative officer at California Pacific Medical Center.Nurses and doctors were quick to denounce Sutter’s plan at the hearing Wednesday, saying it showed little compassion for the people with terminal illnesses who would be shipped off to other counties.“I feel like this is a violation of the Hippocratic oath: ‘Do not harm,’” said Sheehy, who is the only HIV-positive supervisor and a fierce advocate for survivors of the AIDS epidemic.Many of the critically ill patients who need ongoing care are beneficiaries of the state’s Medi-Cal assistance program, which limits reimbursement rates for hospitals.Ronen saw Sutter’s move as “a symptom of the overall broken health care system in the U.S.”Chawla said Sutter’s plan to close the facility at St. Luke’s reflects a national trend, as hospitals with skilled nursing and subacute beds shut down and shift those patients to other types of facilities that are less expensive to operate.
