Good people and dedicated doctors keep trying to make Fulton a viable ER to cover some of the area.They really are dedicated and trying. But the struggles seem never-ending. A recent Area Wide News article holds this discouraging quote:
Dr. Bozeman then announced he had decided to resign as ER Director
because, considering the new limitations, he could not figure out how
to keep the ER staffed around the clock.
""I've always made it work in the past but I don't see the light at the
end of the tunnel," Bozeman told the board. "We'll have to look for
other sources (of staffing)."
The fact is that they found another source through an outside ER doctor supply company out of Little Rock. The issue is that we keep finding ourselves struggling year after year locally to have 24/7 dependable care. It always seems to be on the edge of falling apart. We need to deal with this issue in both Sharp and Fulton in a way that stops the drama. If we cannot have a full service hospital, which would both keep residents from moving and provide decent local jobs, we need a 24/7 ER that is top-shelf all the way in both Fulton and Sharp. Does anyone have any status report on any developments? I know that there are leading citizens trying hard.
