official said, "We have no re-
cord of the facility, and accord-
ing to the master file, they have
never sent us a letter."
KAMBLY refused to com-
ment on the charges against
him. "I've never been in court
in my life and I just don't know
what the correct procedures
are," he said, "but my attorney
advised me that perhaps it
would be unwise" to make a
statement.

ed that patients there received
substandard and often abusive
care, trafficking in illegal
drugs was rampant at the cen-
ter, and certain billing proce-
dures appeared fraudulent.
During the subcommittee
hearings, Kambly denied all the
allegations and said the ques-
tionable billings were the result
of a complex book-keeping sys-
tem.
KELLEY yesterday said his
department's criminal investi-
gation of Kambly and the cen-
ter is closed. The attorney gen-
eral's investigation began sev-
eral weeks before the Senate
probe, but focused only on the
billing procedures.
"Our investigation did not
cover anything related to pa-
tient care," Kelley said.
The University Center is cur-
rently operating on a proba-
tionary basis. The facility was
issued a six-month provisionary
license by the state department
of Social Services rather than
the normal two-year authoriza-
tion because of "four areas of
non-compliance with certain
regulations."
THE ALLEGED deficiencies
at the center involve violations
of the city's fire and building
codes - not problems in the
area of patient care.
The only aspect of patient
treatment found to be substand-
ard was the use of isolation
units for patients who were not
making adequate progress.

who can't get into the health
care system," explained Spen-
cer Maidlow, Assistant Adminis-
trator at St. Joseph Hospital.
THE UNIVERSITY Hospital
clinic serves the same purpose.
"We treat 80 and 90 people a
day, and it's been doubling,
tripling, since we opened it,"
said Linda Applegate, head
nurse in the hospital emergency
room. "What we are trying to
do is serve the needs of the
community."
But even with the clinics, the
local emergency rooms must
still deal with increasing over-
utilization, which can only hurt
the people who come to the hos-
pital for help.
A visit to an emergency r xm
is never a pleasant experience.
It may include nurses who seem
more interested in Blue Cross
numbers than illnesses, long
painful waits, and quick exam-
inations by harried ,loctors.
"BUT THE worst thing about
it," said one recent emergency
room patient, "is that you know
any minute you could see the
victims of a five-car crash come
rolling through those double
doors."
One of the commonest com-
plaints is the impersonal atti-
tude of emergency staffs, but
hospital workers say ths can't
be helped.
