a hospital emergency rooms across the country today many are virgins the rooms were packed e.r. visits have grown thirty two percent in the last decade but there are seven percent fewer emergency rooms from los angeles to chicago to birmingham twenty trauma centers have closed since two thousand. and what's happening in the city of los angeles and in southern california is ground zero for what we're seeing nationwide with the crisis with american services. the in-patient beds per capita lowest in the country and what we've seen recently is the only real health care system that we have in the city of los angeles is the los angeles fire department because we've become the de facto health care system. this is the canary in the morning of health care throughout the united states. outstanding thank you.
for early statistical to me this is good stuff for a year oh yeah. fifteen are you missing from the. service. eight hundred twenty seven. joining. us a little surreal talking. to troops there this is for the case it was still really breathing from those the number one's called the. station sixty five is in the south los angeles area of our city. there fair to her medical rescue is down there one of our busiest engine companies we have in the city los angeles and about four unfortunately can't keep personnel that long there are they come there they gather a lot of experience in a relatively short period of time when they want to go on to a better place. they say
to get. through. the. firefighters and first we're even ian cheeks and then they became even teasing him for minor standees a lot of firefighters pocket that i mean one of the many a mess in fact when i started my ventures a firefighter i didn't want to hear mass and i started out i want to just you firefighters and police told us go to three empty license say i can't ok you do it and i took an e.m.t. course and i thought all right i don't do it to class just to get
a license to try to get hired i was only thing i was planning on doing it was just using the license to get high and it turned out that i truly enjoyed your mistress but it was well with my job or was that it started with any us company making that despite books in our for about four years five years which a lot of us had. i think. our fire code has played an important role in driving down the volume and spirit of fires and because that is the reality that we need is more ambulances. ten years ago with half the evidence is that we have now now we have all of them some medical services in the city of los angeles. i'm a time you dial my mom one here our dispatch center the time you get to the hospital it's one surface what you want to family member to come with you to the hospital we want you to know. that you're.
here. because. we know this. urgent sunroom is very important. we see about three thousand patients a month through demurred support but. we had a day the other day where we saw one hundred ten in one day and it was exciting and your name is ethel said just reach your sorry buddy the way you looking for a thing or her mind hum along ok i've had a lot of pain in its legs where made skin now in the news oh and you're a doctor's office today and she was just certain helpless by the way he had twenty
four we're pretty there's pressure right now is he going to we're increasing staffing and trying to find a room where there's never been room like you know closets hallways there's like a. sardine examine the hallways because it is about three times it's. our silver. is hurting us. the problem is not enough in-patient beds not enough urgency department beds and not enough nurses from members that's to take care of all the people in iraq or. we may have a hospital full of patients no beds upstairs little patients in our yard because there's no beds upstairs and we do the best we can we're we can't turn the lights and we have a federal law that mandates that you can't turn no one away who seeks care in an emergency room. but the reality is is that these people don't have
primary care physicians they can call so they're going to end up in the emergency room and i think that if we had a system where everyone had. access to care they would this would not be happening because they would they would call their doctor. to keep the rest. of the research the rest of. the study looking. rather. hurt. in season with. yours. what's worse i know that should brett just be there for his bank really. because they interest me to different people receive us for
the great thing with your heart just go right right now let's hear your rhythm i want to make sure for your. very question but you haven't taken any such leniency i didn't last twenty four hours yeah ok. oh well you know i. feel sorry for the you know the treatment you know just one more clear you know we're going to start ok hi that's a customer in the spacious b. as in boy you choose six six five four for us just like your own man he has no adamantly using the hospital there were rising on the wrists complication of doing putting down. he's willing to accept those responsibilities. perhaps the hospital they want to speak with the. community body on talk to. yell oh. yeah who are.
some people are just like that you know they get the team in the middle they don't want to go yeah we're locked up on that point. and specialist but. a lot of times they don't have the medicine they can't get the medicine help for the medicine or they sell it for us. this is it up and take it back to the doctor. so because a lot of them tell us what the primary care the fresh somebody sees. or individuals don't have access to health care i am with the shore with our paramedics on there and that's it that's the closest thing those people see the doctor over here so we're actually a doctor in a box if you will and i remember the service here it. was really gross. i make sure everybody's taxes are certain.
to want to be more. than just resigned they were going to go to martin luther king ok not that. you should go we're strongly recommending it we can't force you to go one have a good healthy baby right. who's going to hospital maybe you know fifty i know you . only go during those months and that was a family what you're going to have. to let me do this this is the first outbreak here and i was pregnant here and she could be tracking him just. as a young man to do this it was that. my goodness if she doesn't got want to go with us well the worst possible case scenario is the baby can come out good and that's just being we're not going to sugarcoat it it's just been blunt i'm going i'm going to grab her leadership you had three and i think oh well i'm next project manager i'm nothing but. if you think yes i am i have
a woman think once you stand up in front walk for us. that like we can do that should work pressures already. or you force them. i believe. they're not telling you nothing wrong sweetie. so you need to do the right day for your baby that's less you can go to look. at ok ok we're going to go to morning ok ok ok ok. i'll do pink is the greatest hospital shortly right yes now they say we are babies like they are good for the really good. this is proof that we're going on ross county supervisor. that opens the door for. that on monday morning at eight o'clock this hospital be open to the patients . watson would welcome the south central area of los angeles county. and
watch was put on the map not only in california but the nation of the world. in one thousand nine hundred five because of the riots six days of rioting in a negro section of los angeles left behind scenes from innocent of war torn city says much of south central los angeles seemed to be on fire but fire killing five point unemployment or education and things like a like a health care policy. the claim commission said of the countless believe often. just think that we had a section of los angeles county. over a third of american citizens without adequate hospital care when i transferred in i mean ok more use of king. true hospital where is. your facility it was a hospital it was a trauma hospital trauma it was open which was actually pretty state of the art
trauma. i believe we were saying between fifty and maybe even closer to fifty five fifty seven thousand a year in the name of said partner a lot of times we would get the diabetic and coma who knew something was wrong but didn't have the means to go to the doctor's office again that goes to the problem with there are no primary care facilities in that area. and. a few years ago the county lost an awful lot of clinics are open people could go walk in off the street and see clinics in the county and a few bad buggers a few years ago they closed those clinics private clinics are going to open up and take under insured patients and can't pay.
those you don't have papers yes you have papers just permission just as i was your sugar level it's one hundred twenty eight. zero zero it's four hundred that's very bad for your diabetes. you have an appointment with the pharmacy a week ago why didn't you go. and i did go. to this is this is a free clinic the medicine is free you see me for free so why don't you come this costs money and. a lot of the patients here are not compliant they don't want to structure their never raising structure and what the score there never was to put a layer in the caribbean. so check your sugar to three times a week don't use more every day this is very expensive let's not have insurance then but this is where the money needs to go to the primary care wise in this diabetic. failure. leg cut off because if we sit on the
streets and then two years later the end of that l.a. county hospital we've got to treat it i said across thought it was no. different if you miss your next appointment or any other appointment you can find a new clinic oh yes if i miss the appointment i can come back. primary care nationally is a problem and it is an especially a problem here in los angeles county where do you go for primary care physicians first of all the country is not training enough for them.
so we have a possible candidate for the program. mr mayor has been identified as so great when you are shopping to. at least six times within the one year period we want some here for also the care management part of me in order to maybe help her keep her at it but you are an adult. ok to say no mrs romero my name is you my is traveler i work with a program called road to health and to help patients understand better how to use the magical system there are many. but there you are going to have a caseworker who is going to communicate with you often. ok was there mr you were
telling me about how sometimes you have difficulty making appointments see ok so we are going to help you a little bit with that. people know you know how can i help you know me and they didn't give me this mattson you do have to educate and empower patients to learn how to access care correctly and at the same time you can't do that if the system is not set up to be accessible and if you're educating the patient to go down a road where the bridge is out and there's a fork in the road there's three different ways to go and you know which way to go that's not going to be very helpful in our vision is to improve access to care i want to get people access to the right here at the right time at the right place we need to incentivize financially our primary care providers our physicians as your family medicine doctor that you go see for a cold but also the person who's most likely to diagnose you if you have cancer. and you know you have refills you know but they told me i shouldn't come back with
the prescription or the k. y. . and of course they wouldn't sally to me that's one thing we need to explain to the ph i don't know the field. has five she's telling me that she gets them but i may be seeing i think i don't know enough i'm not. pretty sure be sure her wellness will get together later for a lot of. the good news in. the morning. it's. got her right. we'll put it. under your skin ok you guys are doing much better you're just about reach for margery's goal of what you wanted to have nailers resorts on scene within six minutes you guys are holding down seven minutes flat for however the best it's ever been and it was six
point four. five. year old boy the cigarettes are. just giving you the facts. i had a doctor call me from moscow but we rescued get there of no and he called me one evening any tells me that they couldn't take any more patients and their emergency room so i asked him to explain exactly what he meant he says we needed to free our beds for our people and i said i will which people are your people the people that were bringing them from these lower income areas are paying they don't have insurance they got to get treated they got to be seen for you know paying you can't function as a hospital and that's why we've lost something i suppose an area and a lot socialist hellhole a lost just over five years we've had a love and emergency rooms close and in most cases entire hospitals.
if you give a map of the city and you put a little dot where the hospitals are and you put it out we're all supposed were the yars and the. culture is that so much a lot of people at my area will dallas it'll come to love for a not so amicable divorce for well over a generation of voters and consumers around the world were told to democracy and
