Dr. John Affeldt, director of
Los Angeles County's Depart-
ment of Health Services, said
patient population this week
has been increasing at the rate
of 100 per day at county hos-
"WE'RE GOING to start
planning for earlier than nor-
mal discharges . . . We think
we could free up quite a few
beds by doing that," said Af-
feldt. He said county facilities,
where patients are arriving in
burgeoning numbers as treat-
ment is curtailed elsewhere,
will reach capacity of 3,700 by
the end of the week.
Ha also said negotiations
were under way with seven
private hospitals to accept pa-
tients under county contract.
The county would pick up the
cost of a temporary malprac-
tice insurance policy at the
facilities to insure that doctors
would be available to treat the
contract patients, Affeldt said.
Mothers and their newborn
infants, along with patients suf-
fering from broken bones, would
feel the brunt of the projected
discharge program, he said.
