Help Shortages

0.I -' r

Among Service Staff
With a startling upswing in its pa-
tient census taxing physical facilities
to the limit, the University Hospital
faces increasingly difficult conditions
this year.
The most severe shcrtages in the
help situation lie in the service
groups, Herbert P. Wagner, business
manager of the hospital said. This
group includes all those who work
with food and in the kitchen, nurses
aids, diet maids and any others ex-
cept nurses and doctors, who service
the patients. There is also a serious
shortage in clerical help, he contin-
Machinery Handicaps
In addition, the hospital is facing
machinery handicaps. The lifetime
of much of the machinery was over-
extended during the war, Wagner ex-
plained, and on top of that has had
difficulty in getting serviced. When
we can order new machinery, he said,
delivery dates are set so far ahead
that in many cases it might as well
be available.
Analyzing further the increased de-
mand in both in-patient and out-pa-
tient departments, Wagner reported
that the out-patient clinics are seeing
approximately 600 people each day,
compared to 400 last year and that
the in-patient census has shown a
sharp upswing in just the last sev-
eral weeks.
Hospital Staff Ratio
Though increases in this nature are
hard to forecast and even more dif-
ficult to explain, officials believe
that it can be attributed to the state-
wide shortage of hospital beds, to the
increased participation in health in-
surance prcgrams and to a general
increase in health consciousness.
The desired ratio of hospital staff
members to patients is approximately
two to one. With 1800 employees
serving about 900 patients daily,
Wagner said, the figures at fact
value do not indicate the shortage.
