VON provides needed service Dy JOE MA Jlcrald Slalf Writer Every year, the Victorian Or- der of Nurses make thousands of home visits in Lelhlmdgo and the district to provide nurs- ing care. Home nursing care is good for the patients who are recu- perating in t h c i r own homes; good for other palients who may otherwise find no hospital beds readily available; and good for the taxpayers because the cost of home nursing care is 10 times cheaper than active hospital treatment. Easily recognizable in their blue uniforms, the VONs, by making home calls, have total involvement with the patients and their families. The Lethbridge VON organi- zation, as in other Canadian cities, consisls of professional public heallli nurses, and a hoard of management formed by volunteers. The Lethbridge branch of the VON was formed in 1955 with one nurse. That was increased to two the next year. An in- creasing workload the VONs made MSS home calls in 1971 made it necessary to in- crease the number of nurses to three last year. The hoard of management numbers about 12 volunteers, mostly housewives interested in community work. President is Mrs. Hugh Arnold, wife of an internal medicine specialist. She also is president of the lo- cal chapter of the Canadian Save the Children Fund. Nurses enjoy work School buildings freeze minor here The effects of the provincial government's school building construction freeze is being felt in only a minor way in Leth- bridge. The public school board has three projecls that could have been affected, but two received approval shortly before the freeze was announced. The government decision lo stop a third project is being appealed. The approved projecls are at Senator Buchanan School and Workshop 011 retarded July 20-22 A concert and workshop dis- cussing work with the mental- ly retarded will be held July 20 to 22 by the Alberta and Letli- bridge divisions of Youth Across Canada for the Mental- ly Retarded. Planned events will be held at Dorothy Gooder School, with the closing banquet and dance at the Holiday Inn. Those regis- tering from out of the city will be billeted. Featured speaker is Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development. He will discuss the government's work for the retarded, and future plans. Other speakers are David Parker, recreation consultant nr the National Institute of VIental Retardation; Aubrey Teal, executive director for the Alberta Association for the Mentally Eetarded; and Dr. Andy Stewart, AAMR presi- dent. The conference is open to any interested individual, with a charge of for all events, or for the banquet and dance only. The YACMR would also ap- preciate any contributions to- ward the expense of the confer ence.

Plans for Lakeview called for a two-room addition as well as new library facilities and other alterations at a cost of approxi- mately The provincial school build- ings board turned thumbs down on the proposal but the school board has launched an appeal against the decision. Meanwhile worth of additions and renovations will be carried out at Buchanan and I'alerson schools. The Buchanan project calls for six classrooms and minor renovations at a total cost of It is hoped that the final plans will be approved within the next few days to al- low for a tender call in late July. Plans for the Paterson school MFC rejects apartment bid The city's Municipal Plan- ning Commission has rejected an application by George Mc- Lean to build a four-suite apart- ment on a single-family resi- dential lot at 648 12th St. S. Vera Ferguson, one of three city aldermen on the six-mem- ber commission, said the pro- posed apartment was too large for the lot and was of a com- mercial nature in an area zoned private residential. Mr. McLean was unsuccess- ful in his application to have the commission waive size reg- ulations at the site. He is now left with Uie option of propos- ing a smaller dwelling. The site currently contains an old single-family house which is to be demolished. Band uniforms Members of the Lethbridge Community Band, formerly the Lethbridge Kiwanis Band, have requested the return of any uni- forms still held by former members. The uniforms can be picked up by notifying Betty Friescn at 328-3610. project still have not been finalized because it will be car- ried out in co-operation with the city recreation department. It could involve a new gymn- sium and library and other ren- ovations. The over-all cost is estimated at The separate school system is also feeling the effects of the construction order. Plans for renovations to As- Firefighters idn hose competition A team of [our Lethbridge firefighters demonstrated its skill in firefighting techniques when it captured first and sec- ond place in a hose coupling competition at Coleman. Don Carpenter, Al Rowntree, Fred Manning and Boh Deal, all of the Lethbridge fire de- partment took first place with the best total times in two change-a-length attempts. The changc-a-length event Is designed to simulate the re- placement of a damaged 50 foot length of fire hose. In a second event designed to simulate emergency hose coup- ling to a water pump, the Lethbridge team captured sec- ond place, losing to the Canal Flats, B.C. team. During the second event the first run met with disaster when the pump-hose coupling failed to hold. In the second run the Lethbridge team set a new pro- vincial record for the event by beating the best previous time by more than half a second, with a time of 13.2 seconds. A Lethbridge ladies' team of Mrs. Don Carpenter, Mrs. Al Rowntree, Mrs. Fred Manning and Betty Lou Mazutinec of Picture Butte took first place in a special ladies' event. sumption School had already been approved but the project is now undergoing a re-examin- ation by the provincial govern- ment. Bob Kimmitt, superintendent of Lethbridge separate schools, said he expects the project will still go ahead but the delay has upset plans for the coming school year. The upgrading of facilities at Assumption is expected to cost Meanwhile, in school renovation programs in both school systems are now under way. Work Is being carried out in nine of the 15 public schools at a cost of while is being spent to up- grade facilities at St. Mary's School. Tyson second Dr. Brian Tyson, associate professor of English at the Uni- versity of Lethbridge, has won second place in this year's fifth annual Adult One-Act Playwrit- ing Competition conducted by the drama division of the cul- tural development branch of the provincial government. He also won third place In the three-act division. The title of his prizes-Lining one-act play was Line of Enquiry. Ifis three-act work was titled Love Play. Tomoe Hironaka has been a VON for five years. She enjoys the work for its home involve- ment, greater freedom, and Hie knowledge that she is doing a community service, which also provides scope for personal ca- reer development and satisfac- tion. An Albertan of Japanese an- cestry, Miss Hironaka, like the other two VONs. Karen Urqu- hart and Tina Frieson, is a reg- istered public health nurse. Public health nurses need at least four years of training beyond Grade 12. The three nurses work five days a week, from 8 a.m. to p.m., and alternately stay on call after-hours and during the weekend every third week. Each nurse averages 10 home visits a day, each visit averag- ing 52 minutes. The VONs also give pre-natal classes and visit new mothers and their infants. Every week, one of the nurses spends a morning at the Lethbridge Mu- nicipal Hospital and St. Mi- chael's General Hospital for re- ferrals. The history of VON, a non- profit organization, goes back to 1897, when, under the direc- tion of the Countess of Aber- deen, the VON was inaugurated in Canada by royal charter in commemoration of Queen Vic- toria's diamond jubilee. Today, VON services are available to more than SO per cent of Canadians. Sliding scale fees The VONs charge fees for home visits on a sliding scale, depending on the patients' abil- ity to pay. Some don't pay any- thing. Because of rising costs, the VON will soon increase the fee per visit from ?3.75 to S5.25. The fee was increased from S3.50 to two years ago. However, the cost of service per visit rose to last year and is now estimated at "The fee per visit is assessed on the assumption that every patient is able to pay so as to break even on operational Mrs. Arnold said. This, however, Is not the case, she added. "Many patients don't pay the full Miss Hironaka said. "Some don't pay at all." Which is why, Mrs. Arnold said, the VON needs public and government support. She pointed out the cost per day for an active treatment hospital bed is Last year, "a disproportion- ately large amount of money" went to the Lethbridge VON from its provincial organiza- tion in Edmonton. Government grants are given to the VON's provincial organi- zation, which then distributes funds to various VON organi- zations in the province. Last year, provincial support amounted to A similar amount is expected this year. Because of the large deficits incurred by the Lethbridge op- eration, the provincial organi- zation gave to the local VON last year, in order to de- lay a fee increase as long as possible. Kow it's no longer possible, and the provincial organization says only will be given to Lethbridge. The VON received from the city last year and is trying to' get more this year on the basis that its services aro almost exclusively for Leth- bridge residents. A member of the Lethbridge Community Chest, the VON re- ceived less than it asked for last year because the United Appeal campaign missed its ob- jective by Mrs. Arnold said the lion's share of financial support should come from govern- ments, because the VONs aro freeing hospital beds by enabl- ing early discharge and homo treatment of patients. The VON actively supports home medical care programs and hopes to play a major role if such programs are imple- mented, Mrs. Arnold said.
