- Feinstein revs up the opposition to GOP Senate health care plan
By John Wildermuth - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Feinstein revs up the opposition to GOP Senate health care planRepublican efforts to replace President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act would devastate children’s hospitals across California and make it harder for millions of people — young and old — to get the care they need, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in San Francisco Friday.The GOP plan before the Senate “provides tax cuts for the very wealthy” at the expense of health care for children, Feinstein told an audience of about 100 doctors, nurses, health care professionals and parents of patients at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco.Feinstein joined hospital officials on a morning tour of the sprawling Mission Bay facility, talking with doctors, nurses, parents and patients, before returning for a 45-minute pep rally aimed at revving up opposition to the GOP attack on the Affordable Care Act.The focus of concern is the GOP effort to trim Medicaid, which Obama’s 2010 health care plan expanded to cover millions more people.In California, more than one-third of the state’s 39 million residents are on Medi-Cal, along with 1 out of every 2 children, 60 percent of nursing home residents and half the people with disabilities.Feinstein also heard from three parents, who she described as “true American warrior women,” who talked about what the children’s hospital — and the Medi-Cal money to pay for needed care — meant to their children.Kristin Chaset talked about her nearly 2-year-old daughter, Megan, who had heart surgery five hours after birth and spent more than 10 months in the hospital before finally going home to continuing nursing care and therapy.Sally McDonald spoke of her daughter, Maggie, who underwent 80 surgeries for a congenital disorder, but was provided the resources that enabled her to graduate from Mission High School before she died at age 20.In a statement Thursday, Feinstein called the GOP health plan “an immoral policy.”

- 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.
