Hospital President Amanda Goostree presented info regarding the acceptance of the Thinking Phones telephone bid for the hospital.
Board Member Sue Petitt questioned the process of how the phone bids had been awarded prior to the Hospital Committee and County Board meetings.
Goostree relayed that a “straw poll” of Hospital Committee members had been conducted and the bid awarded prior to the committee meeting,
Petitt stated that committees make recommendation but full board should be allowed to vote.
Goostree stated the board had directed that if an item is budgeted, then purchases could be informational items for the County Board. She did not think that she was supposed to request approval from the full board.
Several board members recalled some type of discussion regarding this process in previous months.
Board Member Pettit felt that 4 board members made a decision for the 14 members of the County Board.
Goostree asked for a clarification of policy on the purchase/bid process.
Prior Board minutes will be reviewed to check for reference on the purchase/ bid process. The Board did not request a re- bid on the phone system.
Board Member Jeremy Wildbur questioned the procedure for transporting patients with life threatening issues from the CCH Clinic to the ER. Goostree stated that, due to liability issues, patients that need transported from Clinic to Hospital are handled by ambulance. The Hospital operates with two ambulance crews concurrently.
Additionally, Goostree reported that the Hospital is currently working on efforts to recruit two doctors and one Nurse Practitioner.
