06/18/2019 8:43am

A group of registered voters delivered a letter of intent to Mayor Eric Garcetti, calling Los Angeles a death camp for the homeless, and saying they want Garcetti out for his ineffectual handling of the homelessness crisis.The group said NBCLAs coverage of the homelessness epidemic, along with the NBCLA I-Teams coverage of the rodent problem and growing typhus cases, have opened their eyes. New Report Says LA Countys Homeless Population Increased by 12 Percent Over Past Year Im just an Angeleno trying to make it in the big city and I think this city is breaking people, said Alexandra Datig, one of the petitioners pushing for a recall on Mayor Garcetti.More than 7,000 people and counting have provided electronic signatures toward a symbolic recall request online at Change.org. LA Extends, Expands Restrictions on Seizing Property Belonging to Homeless Whatever Eric Garcetti is doing, his best, its not good enough, Datig said.Last week the mayor took to Twitter to talk about the homelessness crisis, calling it the second greatest disaster in Californias history. LAPD Officers Diagnosed With Suspected Case of Typhus, Salmonella Typhi He took full responsibility in the video, saying he was also heartbroken and impatient.Since Proposition HHH passed, we have more than a hundred homeless housing developments in the pipeline, he said in the video.The group of registered voters who took concrete action Monday signed a letter of intent to recall Mayor Eric Garcetti.It means theyll need 350,000 physical signatures from registered voters to get the measure on a ballot. While they know it stems from a symbolic move online with the Change.org petition, they took it from symbolism to reality with their message to city hall.Whether they believe this is going to be successful or not, they have a responsibility to take it serious, David Hernandez, a petitioner, said.They will serve the mayor with a formal notice of intent this week, then file with the city clerk. Once approved, they can begin to gather signatures.You have eight people come down with the measles in Disneyland, and Sacramento has changed the vaccine mandatory for every kid going to school in the state. Yet we have a thousand people dying in the streets of Los Angeles and its like, eh, its just an online petition, it doesnt matter, Hernandez said.The group of voters say theyre ready to rise to the challenge.We dont want any more excuses from this mayor. We want him to step down. We want him gone and we want leadership that is going to take care of this city. This city has become a death camp for the homeless, Datig said.A spokesman for the mayor issued a statement late Monday.Mayor Garcetti is intensely focused on the homelessness crisis and the last thing Los Angeles needs right now are people playing political games with this critical issue, said Bill Carrick.Homelessness in Los Angeles County spiked by 12 percent over the past year to reach an estimated 58,936 people, according to figures released June 4.Click here to see the results of the 2019 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, which ties the increase to the regions housing costs outpacing wages and forcing people onto the streets faster than authorities can find them shelter.According to figures released by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, nearly three-quarters of homeless people are living in cars, tents, makeshift shelters or on the streets without any apparent cover from the elements.See the latest in NBCLAs coverage hereinto the homelessness crisis in Southern California.Photo Credit: NBCLA

Nurses Say Los Alamitos Hospital Understaffed
06/06/2019 10:12pm

By:Kirt Ramirez Around 50 registered nurses rallied outside Los Alamitos Medical Center May 28 to urge Tenet Healthcare management to invest in safe nurse staffing.The California Nurses Association CNA, the labor union which represents the hospitals 400 RNs, is in ongoing contract negotiations with Tenet. The 7 to 9 a.m. informational picket coincided with several pickets at other Tenet facilities in Modesto, San Ramon, Turlock, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, Templeton and San Luis Obispo, according to a union press release.Tenet hospitals in Arizona, Florida and Texas also would picket on the same date. Union representatives are hoping an agreement can be reached so that a strike doesnt take place.Many East Long Beach residents seek medical care at Los Alamitos Medical Center, especially since the closing of Community Hospital Long Beach, which is scheduled to reopen this summer.The CNA is asking Tenet for an improved ability to take breaks, a limit on the use of call teams, improvements to patient care and staffing provisions, an increase in wage, on-call and differential pay, improvements to retirement benefits and paid time off as well as protecting and improving health benefits, according to a union document at the event.Todd Burke, director of communications for Tenet Healthcare in California, said through email that the hospital remained fully operational during the union event and the staff continued providing exceptional quality patient care.We are disappointed that the union is taking this approach as it is not constructive or necessary, Burke said. We have made good progress toward a new contract with the union and will continue to negotiate in good faith in hopes of reaching a successful resolution, without the need to disrupt our patients or staff in their mission.Meanwhile, nurses expressed concern over understaffing. They say there are not enough nurses and the patients are affected as a result. Nurses in general at Los Alamitos work 12 hour shifts with varying schedules and say they often cannot take breaks due to understaffing.When time comes for a meal or rest break, and there is no break nurse to take over, the nurse cannot take the break.Ginny Gary, an RN in ICU at Los Alamitos for 34 years, said the hospital needs safe patient staffing. The nurses need to be rested, or delays in care can result, she said.Its really about patient care, Gary said. We feel if nurses get the adequate rest they need, the patients will get optimal care.Gary works three 12 hour shifts per week but cannot take breaks if a nurse is not there to relieve her.We only take the break if we know someone is there to cover the patients, she said.Quite often there is no one to cover the breaks, she said.Chris Wright, an RN in ICU for almost 20 years, said no nurses available to cover the patients during break time is a problem and that he may not abandon the patient.The heart of it is safe nurse staffing, Wright said. When we dont get breaks, that means theres not even a charge nurse or a break nurse to help with emergencies.And its not just about breaks.We are out of ratio when we go to CAT scans, MRIs, rapid responses or code blues with no one to adequately watch our other patients, he added.Linda Luher, a CNOR-certified nurse for surgery, came out in her blue scrubs at the end of the event.I finally got a break, she said to the crowd of colleagues, prompting laughter.We all know that safe patient care starts with a rested nurse, she said.Remember, patients first, but we need to give to ourselves too so we can give to the patients, she added.In an interview with the Beachcomber, Luher said she takes pride in that she grew up in Los Alamitos/Rossmoor, graduated from Los Al High School and works at her hometown hospital.This is a second home to me, she said. This is our community, our family, our friends.kirtbeachcomber.newsCategory: News

Napalm Burned at City Hall
06/06/2019 10:10pm

50 Years AgoBy:Steve PropesThe United States involvement in the Vietnam War during the 1960s produced a revolution, domestically and worldwide, ending the LBJ administration and bedeviling the Nixon administration from 1968 when he won the presidency.This was a dogged and most unpopular war, probably the most opposed in the close to 200 years of the United States. And one of the most despised weapons of this war was napalm, which represented the literal slash and burn approach to war making.Fifty years ago, in 1969, the manufacture of napalm was moved from Torrance to a factory in Long Beach. Though this ground zero aspect of our town attracted some opposition and picketing at the time, not much of a record remains in the documented history of the Viet Nam Era. Nor does the memory of the Long Beach City Hall almost burning down from an unexpected and unique napalm demonstration appear in any known history.Napalm was nothing new in the military chemical armory. A highly flammable sticky jelly used in incendiary bombs and flamethrowers, consisting of gasoline thickened with special soaps, as described in Wikipedia, Napalm developed in 1942 in a secret laboratory at Harvard University, by a team led by chemist Louis Fieser under the United States Chemical Warfare Service.Intrinsic in its impact was to make fire stick to any affected surface, like the human body. Like all weapons of war, napalm did not distinguish between military and civilian victims. Napalm had been used in the incendiary bombs that devastated large swaths of Japanese cities during World War II, including some 60 percent of Tokyo.In 1965, the Pentagon requested bids from the 17 U.S. companies that made polystyrene, a key ingredient in napalm. One of the winning bids was from a small company based in Midland, Michigan, called Dow Chemical. Dow was only ranked 75th on a 1967 list of military contractors before getting into the napalm business, it was best known as the maker of Saran Wrap.Soon, Dow became the militarys sole supplier of napalm, its use in the Vietnam War was most controversial and was the only corporate target on this issue. With its plant, located in Torrance, only a few miles from the Navy base in Long Beach, shipping it to the war zone was straight-forward.Apparently, Dows senior management was unaware of the napalm contract at signing, it was considered such a minor matter. And even at the height of production, only a few Dow employees worked in the napalm division of a total workforce of 35,000.The Students for a Democratic Society made plans to picket the Dow plant in Torrance on May 28, 1966. About 150 anti-picketers showed up, including members of pro-war groups such as the local branch of the Victory in Vietnam Association, headed by recently ousted Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.Dow plants and college recruiters were besieged by anti-war demonstrators and were called baby killers. Dows board began discussing stopping the manufacture of napalm. On January 22, 1968, Torrance Mayor Albert Isen and other city officials paid tribute to the local Dow plant and its employees, no doubt to motivate them to stay the course and stay in town. He cited the company and its employees for their courage and patriotic stand during a time of crisis and for their example.As the five million dollar napalm contract amounted to less than one half of one percent of Dows worldwide sales, based on negative publicity, the company gave it up in 1969. After Dow Chemical, the government contract was awarded to a local subsidiary of the American Electric Company.On December 2, 1969, protesters planned to protest the contract at the Long Beach City Hall, then hold a candle light vigil at the Long Beach Naval station, hoping to be joined by anti-war military personnel, said CT Weber, head of the local Peace and Freedom Party. Picketing was also to occur at the manufacturing plant, the American Electric subsidiary, Diamond Plastics at 6373 Paramount Blvd. in Long Beach.We used to go down to the City Council a lot, said perennial peace activist, 94-year-old John Donohue. C.T. Weber went down to complain about the napalm factory. Here comes C.T. with a roasting pan. He put in some napalm and lit it at the lectern. He had a hell of a time getting it out, just about burned up city hall.There were no arrests, no FBI investigation. No mention of homeland security or terrorism. Apparently, everybody just went home, grateful city hall was still standing. That was the end of napalm, said Donohue. In 2003, Weber was the Peace and Freedom candidate for California governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger. He finished 50th, behind Larry Flynt and Gary Coleman, with 1,626 votes.These days, the Paramount Boulevard site is used by an auto parts manufacturer.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News

Our Grandparents Need Doctors Trained Abroad
06/06/2019 10:08pm

By:G. Richard Olds, M.D.Americas population is aging rapidly. And that means demand for health care will explode in the coming years. By 2030, one in five Americans will be older than 65. Nearly 80 percent of those seniors will suffer from two or more chronic diseases.There arent enough U.S.-educated doctors to treat all these current and future patients. By 2030, the United States could be short up to 49,000 primary care doctors, according to research from the Association of American Medical Colleges.Thats why the United States ought to recruit more physicians educated abroad, at international medical schools, to practice here. Many of these M.D.s grew up in the United States but chose to pursue their degrees outside the country. So theyre well-equipped to treat older patients with complex health needs.Graduates of international medical schools already care for millions of American seniors. In Florida, whose population has the highest share of seniors of any state, more than one-third of doctors went to medical school abroad. In Arizona, which also boasts an above-average share of seniors, one in four doctors studied overseas.International medical graduates, or IMGs, are more likely than U.S.-educated doctors to treat older Americans with complex needs. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital recently reported that patients treated by IMGs were sicker, on average, than patients treated by U.S.-medical school graduates.IMGs also provide higher-quality care. Medicare patients seen by IMGs experience lower mortality rates than those treated by physicians from U.S. medical schools, according to a study in the British Medical Journal.International med school graduates are also more likely than their U.S.-educated peers to choose careers in primary care, where the shortage of qualified medical personnel is greatest. Last year, nearly 70 percent of IMGs selected residencies in primary care. Less than 40 percent of U.S.-medical school graduates did so.This disparity underscores Americas need for IMGs. Primary-care doctors play a vital role in diagnosing seniors ailments and triaging their care. Medicare beneficiaries in areas with lots of primary-care physicians suffer fewer hospitalizations and lower mortality rates than beneficiaries in areas with fewer providers, according to a JAMA study.Fortunately, international medical graduates are increasingly launching their careers in this country. Last year, IMGs matched for residencies in the United States at the highest rate since 1993.Nearly 1,000 graduates of the school I lead, St. Georges University in Grenada, secured a U.S. residency last year. That makes our school the top provider of new doctors to the U.S. healthcare system. Three in four St. Georges graduates go into primary care.As America grays, its healthcare system will need more physicians to treat its growing population of seniors. U.S. medical schools arent producing enough of them. International schools are. All America needs to do is welcome them in.Dr. G. Richard Olds is president of St. Georges University www.sgu.edu.Category: Opinion
