Sublette County Rural Health Care District
Marbleton Fire Hall Conference Room

Big Piney Ambulance: Rich Anderson, Katie Krieger, Wendy Gaston, Jody Yeary, John Haugh, Steve Fisher
Pinedale Clinic: Dr. Boyle, Lesta Winer

CALL TO ORDER
Walt Bousman called the meeting to order at 7:01 p.m.
MINUTES/PHYSICIAN CHECKS APPROVAL
Mary Lynn Worl corrected the regular meeting minutes under the recruitment heading to clarify who the information was researched by. Jerry Jensen corrected the regular minutes under the interior improvements heading to clarify the walkthrough of the Pinedale Clinic was not with Ben Davis.
Jerry Jensen motioned to accept the minutes of the Dec. 9, 2002, regular meeting with corrections and the Dec. 3, 2002, special meeting. Garry Eiden seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
Jerry Jensen motioned to accept the physician checks. William Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
Attorney Ed Wood has not yet completed the final draft of the addendums to the contract; soft goods inventory, medical director, and 2-year extension. These will be completed Tuesday, Jan. 14th. Walt Bousman suggested a special meeting be set up specifically for the purpose of discussing the contract addendums. Jauna McGinnis will send the paperwork when received. Dr. Burnett stated his displeasure for the unnecessary wait since May of 2002 regarding the contract extension. He also stated a special meeting isn't required for the contract extension. Regarding the medical director contract, Dr. Burnett stated he has not been consulted. It was suggested but never confirmed to have the attorney contact the physicians after this evening. William Barney felt it would be useful to receive information from the physicians. A special meeting with the attorney present would be beneficial. Dr. Burnett finally agreed to the special meeting. Both physicians stated Jan. 21 or 28 would be acceptable for the meeting.
Dr. Boyle clarified a misconception from the last meeting. She is interested in developing a recruitment and retention policy to ensure physicians will remain in Sublette County over a long period of time, not to have the district pay for the salary and benefits. She submitted information for the clerk to distribute to the Board. Mary Lynn Worl has put a packet of information together also. She has been in contact with Billee Jelouchan of the Wyoming Health Resource Network stating she is willing to meet with this Board and discuss recruiting and retention. It was clarified that the board did not misunderstand Dr. Boyle's intentions. There is a demand for family practitioners in the state of Wyoming. William Barney suggested this be considered carefully due to the precedent it will set. The board realizes the urgency of this issue and agrees a workshop with Ms. Jelouchan would be prudent for the long term planning for recruitment and retention. Dr. Boyle stated she may not be willing to sign a new contract if she has to continue alone.
The board retired into executive session at 7:40 p.m. to discuss personnel issues related to the Pinedale clinic.
Walt Bousman called the meeting back to order at 7:55 stating no action was taken.
Walt Bousman appointed William Barney and Mary Lynn Worl to form a committee to actively pursue a doctor for the Pinedale Clinic. William Barney further clarified the charge as working with the physicians to formulate a plan of recruitment and retention to bring to the board. Walt Bousman had visited with Senator Roberts when he was in Pinedale regarding malpractice insurance. The State of Wyoming would need to amend the state constitution in order to place a cap on the premiums. Due to the malpractice companies' reluctance to reduce the premiums, there will not be any action at the state level.
A new proposal from Ben Davis, which consists of the original amount with the addition of $3200 as the final proposal, was submitted to the board. Dr. Boyle stated the work can be started in February.
Garry Eiden motioned to proceed with the work. Jerry Jensen seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously. Walt Bousman signed the new proposal.
Dr. Burnett had submitted a voucher in the amount of $15,000 for the computer system. There were some items other than hardware that were in question (i.e., training, software, maintenance). The impression was the board would purchase the hardware and Dr. Burnett would purchase the software due to the board's view of turnkey. Dr. Burnett stated he is asking the board to approve the $15,000 approved for the computer network. William Barney motioned to approve the $15,000. Garry Eiden seconded the motion. Before the motion was voted on, the clerk confirmed that the Quickbooks and ICD/CPT Codes software belongs to the District. Motion carried unanimously.
The board then opened the sealed bids from the following submitters:
Uinta Communications/Evanston, Wyo.
Dave's Electronics/Pinedale, Wyo.
Sublette Communications/Pinedale, Wyo.
Communication Services/Shoshoni, Wyo.
ACS Networks/Pinedale, Wyo.
It was determined the bids were too diversified to make a final decision. The board decided to table the award until Walt Bousman and Jerry Jensen could further review the submitted bids line by line and obtain further information from the submitters. The information will be brought to the next meeting at which time the award will be made.
Jerry Jensen motioned to table this discussion until further review. Garry Eiden seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
If the submitters have any comments they were instructed to submit it in writing.
The radios for the clinics and Pinedale EMS were discussed next. It was decided that the Pinedale EMS system will be put in by Jeff Alexander/Sublette Communications. This is to be done immediately. The radios for the clinics will be put out for bid. Jerry Jensen motioned to have approved specifications put in the paper for the two clinics and hire Jeff Alexander for the Pinedale EMS radio. Mary Lynn Worl seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
CELL PHONE FOR EMS SUPERVISOR
Wil Gay, Pinedale EMS supervisor, requested a cell phone to conduct district business. He does not have access to a landline during the daytime hours and would like to avoid any conflict with his employer for using the company cell phone. Jauna McGinnis stated there is room on the cellular plan for an additional number. Due to the low usage of minutes, the expected cost would be the initial cost of the cell phone, approximately $50 - $150.
Rich Anderson, Big Piney Ambulance Service Supervisor, stated he did not want to have a phone.
Mary Lynn Worl motioned to purchase a cell phone for the Pinedale EMS supervisor to be used solely for the business of the district. Discussion continued. Motion died for lack of a second.
Jerry Jensen suggested the discussion be tabled until more information and feedback could be obtained by all Board Members.
O2 BAGS - Pinedale EMS has some old style O2 carrying bags that are no longer is use. The board suggested Pinedale EMS check to see if the fire departments or search and rescue could utilize them.
GENERATOR SHED - The metal siding on the Pinedale EMS generator shed is almost completed.
BARN SIDING - The method to repair the metal siding on the Pinedale EMS barn was discussed. The board decided removing and replacing with new metal, matching it as best they could for the entire wall, would be the best alternative. Pinedale EMS is to obtain an estimate for this project.
STORAGE AREA - Because of some new changes Pinedale EMS would like to make in the barn (i.e., OSHA decontamination shower, eye wash area, future expansion needs), and because of changes necessary to become HIPAA compliant (i.e., locked office), new plans and estimates will be needed. Pinedale EMS is to obtain these estimates and so forth. This should be included in the budget requests. There is $8,500 already budgeted, which can be used toward completed parts of the project this fiscal year. The rest can be included in the new budget.
DRUG BOX - Kris Bacheller stated Pinedale EMS would like to move a locked drug box to a specific closet as it would be best maintained there. Pinedale EMS is to place the drug box in the closet and have a combination lock installed.
SEMINAR - Kris Bacheller requested the ability for members of Pinedale EMS council to attend a seminar on managing conflict in Rock Springs. Jauna McGinnis reported there are enough funds in professional development for this attendance. The board would like to research this before making a decision.
INTERNET - Big Piney Ambulance Service has decided to put this in the budget request rather than discuss it now.
Mary Lynn Worl and Jauna McGinnis reviewed the quotes from Dell and Gateway earlier this week. Jauna McGinnis presented the information for the packages. There were three quotes: Two from Gateway and one from Dell. Jauna McGinnis had a system with the same specifications proposed by both. The Dell system was $100 more. Then Jauna McGinnis had Gateway propose a system with higher specifications. The final cost was $100 more for a system with higher specifications. She stated she preferred to purchase from Gateway since Sublette County and the Pinedale schools had a contract with Gateway. Plus, for the same price as Dell's lower specification package could obtain higher specifications.
Big Piney Ambulance Service is going to request a desktop in their budget. Big Piney was asked if they could use a laptop in lieu of a desktop. Katie Krieger was concerned about the HIPAA regulations for privacy if the laptop was accessible for training purposes, which would have the State information. Jauna McGinnis stated the information is not identifiable to the person therefore it did not fall under the privacy regulations. William Barney stated a password could be used. Discussion then turned to the possibility of using a docking station with the laptop. Jauna McGinnis is to research this issue. Big Piney Ambulance Service is to bring their request for their needs at the next meeting.
Jerry Jensen motioned to purchase the Gateway laptop and desktop for the office, and the two projectors and table the purchase of the EMS laptops. William Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried with Garry Eiden abstaining.
INVESTMENT OF FUNDS/CD ROLLOVER
Two CDs have matured this month and part of the mill levy has been received. Jauna McGinnis has suggested to cash in the Bank of Pinedale CD, add it to the Community First National Bank CD, and re-designate as ambulance/building purposes, increase the CD by $100,000 and roll over for another 6 months. Increase WYO-STAR account by $400,000 and leave the remaining $800,000 in the checking account.
After discussing the best alternatives, Jerry Jensen motioned to cash in the BOP CD, add it to the CFNB CD, increase the CFNB by $100,000, designated for ambulance and building purposes, invest the remaining $400,000 into WYO-STAR. William Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
POLICY AND PROCEDURES
A special meeting for the policy and procedures meeting is tentatively set for Jan. 23, 2003. Jauna McGinnis is to poll the board for the dates of Jan. 21 and 28 for Ed Wood and the physicians and the 23rd for the policy and procedures meeting.
PINEDALE CLINIC ADDITION
The board discussed an addition to the Pinedale Clinic for medical offices and the district office. This need has become quite apparent. It was suggested a meeting with an architect with Dr. Boyle, Jauna McGinnis and Annie Sondgeroth, PHN, would be beneficial.
Garry Eiden questioned the use of the building by the public health nurse and the county sanitarian. He was reminded by the board that their function complements the physicians in the clinic plus the District has the benefit of not paying for the liability insurance.
Jerry Jensen motioned to publicize the minutes of the regular meetings in both newspapers due to conflicting stories in the newspapers. Discussion ensued regarding the pros and cons and cost. He then amended his motion to include "on a three-month trial". Garry Eiden seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
The ambulance carport is nearly finished. It has been brought to the Board's attention of the necessity of windows. William Barney motioned to add two windows that match the existing clinic windows on the west side of the wall. Jerry Jensen seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
The board discussed the addition of heat and decided it would not be cost effective nor beneficial at this time.
Jerry Jensen motioned to pay the bills as presented. Mary Lynn Worl seconded the motion. Motion carried authorizing vouchers for payroll and vendors numbered 2166 through 2298 totaling $883,254.20.
Without any further business, Garry Eiden motioned to adjourn the meeting. Jerry Jensen seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously. Meeting adjourned 10:10 p.m.
