CALL TO ORDER
Walt Bousman called the meeting to order at 7:10 p.m.
MINUTES/PHYSICIAN CHECKS APPROVAL
Mary Lynn Worl motioned to accept the minutes of the February 10, 2003, regular meeting and February 24, 2003, special meeting. Bill Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
The board then signed the physician's checks.
Dr. Constantinides, a prospective physician for the Pinedale Clinic, was present at this meeting. Mary Lynn Worl introduced him to the attendees. He then briefly discussed his credentials and his area of practice. His special interest is family practice.
In order to move forward and to ensure this physician will join us here in Sublette County, Mary Lynn Worl suggested she and Bill Barney meet with the physicians. She also submitted a new analysis and criteria sheet for a loan program.
MEDICAL DIRECTOR CONTRACT ADDENDUMS
Copies of the contracts for medical director that were submitted at the last meeting were handed out to the board members and physicians. The board decided to revisit this item at the next meeting. Walt Bousman stated the board, according to the attorney, could enter into a regular contract with one physician and an employee contract with the other.
Dave Doorn addressed the board regarding the Sublette Center's home health service and provided an informational packet. This service has been subsidized during the last three years in the amount of $30-40,000 per year. Edna Schilling, director of nursing, presented statistics regarding this service, depicting a need for a full-time registered nurse. The board will review this during the budget sessions. The Sublette Center is requesting $12,000 per month but would accept whatever the board would be agreeable to.
Dave Doorn would like to meet with a few key people to discuss the wheelchair van information. He will set up a meeting this next week.
PHYSICIAN BUSINESS CONTINUED
RURAL HEALTH CLINIC SEMINAR
Dr. Boyle attended a seminar regarding a rural health care clinic. She is in the process of gaining a rural health care clinic designation. Since the clinic will be gaining the designation, which would stay with the clinic, she would like to be reimbursed for the seminar. The board felt this was fair. Dr. Boyle will submit a copy of the paperwork for the board members, who in turn will make a decision at the next meeting.
Dr. Boyle was given permission to have the carpet cleaned in the clinic with district funds.
HOT WATER HEATER
The hot water heater, which is dated 1978, quit working and may need to be replaced. Dr. Boyle will let the board know.
EMT WAITING ROOM
When the EMTs are awaiting the transport of patients, there is not a specific place for them to wait. This poses complications pertaining to HIPAA compliance issues. It was suggested in the discussion that the EMTs be released. Dr. Boyle will come up with a plan and speak with the EMTs.
The Big Piney Ambulance Service needs a desktop computer. Bill Barney motioned to find the funds to get an adequate machine for current and expected needs. Mary Lynn Worl seconded the motion. Discussion continued regarding the placement of these computers. Motion carried unanimously.
Discussion continued regarding the computer placement. Katie Krieger, EMT, stated it would be an inconvenience to have the computer removed from the clinic. She is the only one who presently uses the computer. Jauna McGinnis will address the lawyer concerning the HIPAA implications regarding the storage of district records and equipment at the clinic. Ms. Krieger is to come up with some creative approaches to minimize this inconvenience. This issue will be addressed at the next meeting.
Jauna McGinnis has been summoned for jury duty through September 2003. She indicated the dates for duty would not conflict with her normal course of daily work or district meetings. She was given permission to be absent from the office on the designated jury days.
PURCHASE OF OLD COMPUTER
Jerry Jensen motioned to advertise the old computer for bid. Bill Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
Jauna McGinnis needed clarification regarding the purchase of the desktop computer for Big Piney Ambulance Service. They may purchase the desktop after verifying the availability of funds with the clerk. Bill Barney motioned to purchase a desktop package under $2,000. Jerry Jensen seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
POLICY AND PROCEDURES
The next meeting for the policy and procedures manual review is set for the 24th of March after the radio meeting. The meeting location will be changed to the Pinedale EMS Barn. Jauna McGinnis is to re-advertise the new location of the meeting and to scan the radio bids to project on the screen.
NEW TIME CARD
A copy of the new time card is to be sent to both EMS services for review. This will be discussed at the next meeting.
Jauna McGinnis would like to meet with the EMS personnel to obtain a full picture of the EMS process, and identify gaps within the HIPAA policies in order to develop the policies more fully for consistency.
FLORIDA PROVIDER ENROLLMENT
Jerry Jensen motioned to enroll with Florida Medicaid. Bill Barney seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.
COMMUNITY FIRST BANK
The board signed a depository pledge agreement with Community First National Bank. This will simplify the process to pledge securities in the future.
Bill Barney stated he would like to have an operating policy regarding personnel and the line of management. The existing management structure should handle personnel issues and be held accountable for non-performance of their job. If the situation is beyond the EMS supervisor's capabilities, then the board should become involved. Mary Lynn Worl stated better communication is needed and the roles of the supervisor and medical director need to be defined in the policy and procedure manual. Bill Barney was directed by the chairman to write a policy for this issue.
The board discussed the submission process of timecards from salaried personnel and the mail delay of payroll checks. Jerry Jensen motioned to pursue a direct deposit option and if the timecards are not turned in at the same time as the trip reports on the 1st, personnel will not get paid until the next meeting. Bill Barney seconded the motion. Discussion continued. It was noted the policy and procedure manual states when the timecards are due. The motion was amended that pay for the late timecard will be issued at the next occurring pay period and that this motion is dependent upon attorney Ed Wood's approval. Motion carried unanimously.
The board decided to obtain bids from the Pinedale Roundup and Sublette Examiner for the publication of all district business.
Jerry Jensen motioned to pay the bills as presented. Mary Lynn Worl seconded the motion. Motion carried authorizing vouchers for payroll and vendors numbered 2417 through 2528 totaling $101,102.36.
Without any further business, Jerry Jensen motioned to adjourn the meeting. Garry Eiden seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously. Meeting adjourned 9:15 p.m.
