EKL will no long admit patients as of 4/1/13 and will begin discharging current patients in an effort to close the hospital early before the legislative session begins. Employees to be let go after last patient discharged. Only the ER will be open for minor injuries, all ambulances are being diverted at this time to OLOL an BRG. Inmates are being diverted an extra 1.5 to 2 hours to UMCNO and Lallie Kemp on top of a 45 min trip to EKL, even trauma cases. Patient survivability expected to be very low. Lay off letters given to employees without civil service approval, CMS and no written concrete agreement exist for transfer of services.
