Will they be better? I have heard their response time could be slow.

According to the location & ETA. Funny but we voted years ago for a tax to support ambulance service but GH jack around with it after it passed hence no tax to support ambulance service

Yeah he changed the wording to maintenance. I hope though some of the good emts stay and it does feel good response time will be better. I clicked the link in the story and they look like a pretty solid operation!

Are there any plans to try to recoup any of the money that he overcharged the hospital?

I am curious. When the turnover of the previous board took place, one of the things the current administration was upset about was the outsourcing of the billing and the food services. I remember the administrator was adamant the hospital was losing money because these items were outsourced to someone else then there was this big Hurrah about conflicts of interest. So was that all just a smoke screen for the administrator to get the board out so he could continue running the hospital into the ground? What is different now about outsourcing the ambulance? This is another source of revenue for the hospital we will be losing. Why, all of a sudden, are we outsourcing yet another source of revenue for the hospital then asking the people of Pemiscot County to once again pay more taxes so they can continue doing what they have been doing wrong these past years? Is this another area of mismanagement where we have outdated equipment and we are not sending the information in correctly to get paid?

Okay you've made the accusation that ambulance had a extended response time and that in turned caused the death of your mother in law. Just how exactly did the extended ETA of the ambulance lead to her expiring? Did you think that the ambulance may have been on another call helping someone else. Maybe they were at the scene of a wreck on the interstate? There are many factors that can come into play when it comes to EMS but honestly the companies name on the side of the ambulance really doesn't make a difference in the care you receive.

Well let's see "common sense", the Hospital is still here 2.5 years later, so looks like Administrator and new Board must be doing something right. At least Haynes is no longer padding his pockets at taxpayer expense.
