Administrator Johnnie Johnson reported on his recommendations for expenditure protocol, which defines who authorizes the hospital to pay for capital equipment and other purchases above several thousands of dollars. Board unanimously agreed on the matter that involves cost review by doctors, board committees, the administrator and the full board depending on what is being bought, medical or general service equipment. Johnson said his work as a member of Texas Hospital Association’s Region 8 division indicates there will be two primary concerns of the legislature that have any great impact on health care, Texas’ overall budget and tort reform. “My role is not to play politics. I am there to inform and bring back information,” Johnson said. He said he believes the legislature will watch expenditures down to “any item more than IO cents more than budgeted.” He said THA maintains a paid lobbyist in Austin. Tort reform is a desire among many government entities, like cities, counties, states, and others to limit the amount of money a Jury or court can give someone who is injured or hurt by another’s misdeed or mistake. What attorneys call “deep pocket” damage suits mean that any entity, incorporation or individual who has enough money and resources and is found by evidence to be only partially responsible for Intangible pain has to pay for all the damages asked for in a successful suit. Tort reform could mean a limit only on punitive damages, the amount the person suing says will compensate for pain and suffering. Tort reform In Texas does not attempt to limit actual damages for lifetime income loss, property damages and medical costs. These are damages for which there is a provable and expected loss over time. Insurance costs to cities and hospitals constitute more than than for most average businesses because entities and some hospitals have “deep pockets” filled with the guarantee of property and sales taxes to pay the loss. Staff reported that intravenous fluids that had been mixed by floor nurses will now be exclusively mixed by staff in the pharmacy, which medical staff said was preferred practice. Long-range consideration’s by McKenna were listed as equipment, 24-hour operation in all administrative and directly non-medical departments, greater computer capability and what to do with land the hospital has bought from the city or private parties. A new visitor parking lot off Garza will be complete in a couple of weeks, according to building and equipment committee member Amo Becker. The hospital plans to purchase the old municipal fire house on the same street and ultimately develop the property.

Bill Clements to declare an emergency overcrowding situation in the Texas prison system and allow officials to advance release dates of some inmates. In what has become a weekly routine, the Texas Department of Corrections closed its doors to new inmates at the end of business Wednesday because the inmate capacity again exceeded a 95 percent ceiling. The shutdown was the fourth in as many weeks and the fifth so far this year. The prisons were to remain closed to new admissions today. "You are required to immediately certify that an emergency overcrowding situation exits and order (TDC) Interim Director (James) Lynaugh to credit not more than 90 days of administrative good conduct time to all eligible inmates,” assistant Attorney General Scott McCown said in a letter to the governor. New rules, signed into law Friday, allow up to 90 days of good time to be credited to non-violent inmates lf the governor declares a prison emergency. Previously, the system had to be over the 95 percent mark for five consecutive days before such an emergency could be declared. Mike Roach, spokesman for the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, said Wednesday that officials have prepared parole certificates for about 400 inmates and were awaiting word from the governor's office to implement the law. "We’re ready to move as soon as we get the word,” Roach said, adding that the estimated 400 would be released "as quickly as we can get them out.” Roxana Salazar of the governor’s press office said Wednesday evening that "General Counsel Rider Scott is on top of the situation,” Roxana Salazar of Clements’ press office said late Wednesday. "The general counsel is reviewing the appropriate actions the governor may take and is in the process of notifying the governor,” who remained in Washington. The latest population count, made at midnight Tuesday and announced late Wednesday, showed 38.507 prisoners — 95.27 percent of capacity, or HO inmates above the legal limit. "There’s no room at the inn.” TDC spokesman Charles Brown said. A record 502 inmates were transferred Tuesday into the state system, which is second nationally in size only to the California prison system. Only 160 were released on parole. The large influx came as county sheriffs tried to alleviate their own Jail crowding problems caused by the most recent state shutdown, which lasted five days.
