County EMS Director Fanning Writes to Hospital CEO Stebbins
On November 5th, County EMS Director Dale Fanning wrote a letter to Alameda Hospital CEO Deborah Stebbins advising her that the variance to the county stroke transport protocol does not meet the standard of care in Alameda County and that it “is not in the best interests of patient care”. Duh! And finally! Fanning said that County EMS staff had met with hospital leadership… (at the leadership’s request) in July 2007 to discuss stroke protocols. Hospital leadership? That’s the Alameda Healthcare District Board! Curiouser and curiouser is the trail of Deutsch (AHD Board member 2007+). The full story is here.
