D'ARCY RICKARD pholos. COALDALE (HNS) The appointment of a third doctor last year to the medical clinic here was noted in the annual president's report by George B. Schmidt to the annual meet- ing of shareholders of the Coal- dale Community Hospital Asso- ciation. Dr. R, Kingston began here last year. Mr. Schmidt stated this had "afforded the possibility of or- ganizing the medical staff into the required three active medi- cal men, which means the doc- tors can assist in the managing of our hospital." The organization of the medi- cal staff had Iwcn the goal oi the board for many years hut until now this had been impos sible, Mr. Schmidt said. The medical staff is listed as three active, 25 courtesy am consultant, and nine d e n t a members. Mr. Schmidt expressed ef forts are being made toward the establishment of a senio citizen's or nursing, home wit the study assistance of the hos pital planning committee. nursing home could run at a break-even point, Mr. Schmidt said, while a senior citizen's ome nearly always operates t a loss. This is because until ow the senior citizen's homes re not subsidized by the goy rnment. It was noted the rate for res- dents in these homes was set >y the government in 1965. Some updating may soon come. Mr. Schmidt said the board vas actively engaged in achieving accreditation for the hospital. It requires meeting certain standards that are rec- ognized by the Canadian Hos- Hlal Association. For Canadian accreditation the board is proceeding with the install ation of a sprinkler system in critical areas as well as having consultants for some of the service areas. The board is considering hav- ing students from the Leth- bridge Community College School of Nursing visit the local hospital to learn at first hand.

Well, no, not really. The trainees come first. It's here to train people. It could be a successful commercial opera- tion but that's not its sole purpose." The trainees are busy. "We're just coming into our busy says Mr. Allen. "From now to the end of May we'll be very busy. We've had a good reputation from the start. We don't sell anything but the best quality shift."

Every day two trainees study at the ranch residence, learning how to cook, keep house and look after them- selves. "If they ever leave here they'll be able to look after says Mr. Allen. We watched trainees busy sandpapering wood panels. Mr. Laturnus: "They pick it up pretty fast. We've train- ed three now who can use pretty near all the power tools. As they advance they get to use more power tools." Their goal is to teach re- tarded men and hoys enough about, carpentry so they can move on to jobs. "They're very good to work. says Mr. Allen. "No problem at all. You get very fond of them." NEED CONTACT Retarded people need con- tact with other people. They need friends. They need peo- ple to take them out to movies, to go shopping with them, take them for drives, or just sit quietly with them. They need social contact.
