Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE IETHBKIDGF KcSAlD Saturday. Dscfr-btr 16, 1972 Tampering idth UIC Rccen-jy, the govei-jrer.' an- noiinced it ri-'-'ise the mem scheme, with a dvuin iur.ds. some up needed. But in correciig the govern- ment rr.ii-l be not to create greater one. v.Ti'.cr. it '.vil! he if it alters the iiL-.da- mental nature oi scheme. Mr. not '.vrcr.g v-t.en he that the concept un- 53 sacrec. To realize this, one has crJy to thuik back to the days before there was iuch a a; unemployment Th.3 assistance consist-c! oi a food vccioher fish ni-Siit c.i certain stores, rninlmcl for fuel and ut.iities. and the right to plead for essential clothing at a municinai And in return allv had to vrork a r.iimhcr 01 dai-'5 thorlties decided. At one in the so-called "Dirty one Canadian in ten was on relief. It is easy to imagine how catastro- phicaily losing a job affected one's financial situation: the effect on the spirit worse, much worse. It was to prevent this degradation that un- employment insurence was created. H had been observed that it Ls normal practice to insure against foreseeable risks, such as fire ,theft, health problems, car accidents, etc., and that loss of gainful employment is just as great a risk as any of. these. It was reasoned that under existing economic arrangements there will always be a risk of un- emniovmeiit. so the individual should be able to insure himself against it. Most important, it was felt that if tha insured paid premiums, he should be entitled to claim benefits, with- out having to plead for them, without being subject to "inspection" or any other form of harrassment, and with- out any stigma. And they were right. The scheme is not perfect, as any- one So any moves to improve it are welcome and should be ap- plauded. It :s agreed there have been abuses. But there are abuses in ev- er.' insurance scheme known to man. Fire insurance inspectors must al- v.ay- be on the lookout for arson. Health insurance people complain of unnecessary trips to doc- tor or hospital. Insurance companies s a y rates wou'd be much lower if people weren't so careless or so venal, if ail claims were honest, or reasonable enough that litigation could be avoided. It is agreed, too. that a lot of people pay UIC premiums who may never in their lives claim benefits. It is equally true that all houses are cov- ered by fire insurance, but few ever burn dov.T, That's how insurance itant thing is really not th; money involved, though that is important enyjgh. V.'nat really mat- ters is the chance unemployment insurance gives those who lose their jobs to maintain their human dignity. How much that is worth in dollars, or even in the toleration of abuses, is hard to measure. But it is surely worth a lot rriore than Canadians can afford to lose, which is something those who wish to alter the scheme must remember. Emergency ward squeeze Emerjancy facilities at the Ltthbridge Municipal Hospital are much less than ideal. The hospital, designed 20 years ago, originally handled emergency patients an- nually. Today, ILWXi patients are be- ing handled through thus facility, or one-third more than those admitted through the hospital's admitting of- fice. Present facilities include a four bsd ward for out-patient and day surgery care, three cubicles in the health office ar.d a cubicle in a ccm- office. Trie four cubicle-, are the only fadlities available for chang- ing in this busy vrarri. Some 85 per cent of the patients vrho corne to emergency canr.ot he cla ed s; emergent ps'tent; but esch o'ne requires careful prtce'.sir.g and Meditation crovi'ded emergency ward conditions make this processing difficult. V.'hat is needed is an additional square feet of ward space, which would allow for five more cubi- cles plus an 800 square foot covered ambulance hay. At present, patients on foot or stretcher must brave the elements between their parked vehi- cle and the emergency door. The popular trend today 13 for pa- tients to seek emergency ward care when the doctor's offices and clinics are closed. This puts a heavy load on emergency v.ard on weekends a.vl after office hours. As this trend continues the squeeze on emergency services going to be felt increas- ingly.
