CONCERNS OF THE PUBLIC CONDUCTED BY THE CODE OF CONDUCT

Dr. George Isaacs, General Surgeon in Wilson, stated that the sale of the Home Health Agency gave him great concerns. He is a concerned citizen for the patients of the community. If you have a disruption of home health care, that the emergency room will be flooded with patients who do not need to be there, and taking up the time and space for those that have critical medical needs. Dr. Isaacs hope that the Commissioners will look at this decision diligently to see if they can keep home health.

time. Ms. Hill also stated that she is worried about the for-profit entity what that would mean for the patients. We currently serve over 300 patients in Wilson County and that private companies limit their intake of Medicaid patients.

Ms. Christie White, has worked in the Home Health Agency billing for 18 years and has been a devoted employee to Wilson County. She mentioned that the Agency did better last year and did bring in money.

Ms. Debra Harris, Home Health Supervisor, stated that her main concern was for staff and patients. There are employees who are close to retirement, but they are not eligible at this time and that they will lose accrued time in sick and annual leave. I am eligible for retirement, but there is still some time that I will lose and this puts me in a difficult position. She stated that it is not fair to these employees to lose what they have accrued and that is money invested into their future. Home Health will be celebrating 50 years of service in October and it is sad to see a business sold, and that her staff worked hard to take care of their patients. She asked that the Commissioners please look into this before a final decision is made.

Mr. Osborne acknowledged the contributions of Commissioner Bobbie Jones and expressed appreciation for her contributions. He explained the value of partnerships, a quality workforce, and achieving results. Program changes in child care subsidy, child support, Medicaid Transportation, and Child Welfare were reviewed. He reviewed the HB 630 Regional supervision and administration possibilities. A review of the Family First Act was given. The funding focuses on Child Abuse Prevention and behavioral health needs of children and families when they are not eligible for Medicaid. The negative impact is that congress is not viewing congregate care/group home settings positively and will reduce this funding for children that stay in this care. Mr. Osborne discussed the unprecedented auditing being conducted on DSS across the state. He stated the results have been mixed. Audits have been conducted post-NCFAST and the results show.
