I have termed the Board’s oversight as “complacent”. (Of course, some think my preferred approach is nitpicky or micromanaging.) I would like the Healthcare District Board candidates to state their approach to oversight. If there is some confusion by what I mean, specifically, by complacent then what do they think of the following 3 scenarios:
1. Allowing stroke certification to be entirely overlooked for years until the County stopped allowing stroke patients to come to Alameda Hospital.
2. Allowing NPC2 certification to be entirely ignored for years (in contravention to state regulations) until the state writes several letters making it clear that they will begin enforcing these regulations meaning the Hospital would be forced to close.
3. Allowing the financial health of the District to deteriorate until the Bank of Alameda made it clear that it could no longer extend credit unless additional collateral was made available so that the Jaber Trust properties have to now be mortgaged.
