An ambulance responding to a vehicle accident involving the wife of Mayor Ed Lee arrived at the scene beyond the 10-minute time limit standard set by the San Francisco Fire Department for such a response, department sources told KTVU.
The fire department union and other employee groups have been at odds with Lee and Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White over staffing within the department’s ambulance division.
The union claims the staff shortage has delayed response times to emergency medical calls within San Francisco. It and the other fire department employee groups have demanded Hayes-White’s ouster.
Lee has asked all the parties to work together while he reviews the issue. He has set an Oct. 14th deadline on a decision as to what to do about the complaints.
On Monday, Lee’s wife Anita was involved in an accident in San Francisco’s Sunnydale District. Records obtained by KTVU show two ambulances were called to the scene on a Code Three status. That means it’s a level of an emergency that under fire department standards requires less than a 10-minute response.
The initial ambulance arrived beyond the 10-minute standard.
The mayor’s wife – who was the passenger in a car involved – suffered minor injuries and sources told KTVU that one of the ambulances was sent to take her to the hospital for treatment.
In a statement to KTVU, a mayoral spokesman said Lee was thankful for the work of the emergency crew and that his wife had been released from the hospital.
"Both Mayor Lee and First Lady Anita Lee thank the first responders who provided excellent care of Mrs. Lee yesterday immediately following a car accident in which she was treated and transported to San Francisco General Hospital. Mrs. Lee was treated and released from SFGH," the statement said.
According to records obtained by KTVU, the call for an ambulance went out at 2:12 p.m. The first ambulance was dispatched at 2:14 p.m. and arrived on the scene at 2:26 p.m. with the second arriving at 2:37 p.m. However, Hayes-White has disputed the dispatch report. She told KTVU that the first ambulance actually was sent out as a Code Two response – that requires under a 20-minute arrival time.
She’s counting the ambulance arrival time from when it was elevated to a Code Three at 2:16 p.m.
Hayes-White said the call for a second ambulance was received at 2:31 p.m. and it arrived within six minutes of the call.
The spokesman for Lee said the mayor and his wife felt she had gotten the appropriate level of response.Tue, 30 Sep 2014 08:14:00 -0700
A 1-year-old girl suffered a neck injury at an Oklahoma Walmart after running into a fishing line that was strung across the toy aisle, presumably as part of a prank.
Patricia Keeth said her daughter, Allison, was walking down the toy aisle at the Bristow Walmart when something bumped her backwards.
Fishing line that had been stretched across the aisle, perhaps to trip people. But since Allison is a small child, it clothes lined her neck.
“Children don’t deserve to go to Walmart to look at toys and end up in the ER,” Keeth told Tulsa TV station KOKI. “Even if it was a prank that was supposed to be funny or bad, I mean it could really hurt somebody. And I would like to know who did this and I want them to see my daughter’s neck."
She said Allison’s neck is bleeding in areas because it’s irritated. She’s certain it’ll leave a scar.
“Even if it was on purpose or supposed to be funny as a joke, haha it’s not. My daughter’s going to be damaged for life now,” she said.
Keeth said the store’s manager told her Saturday she would review the surveillance cameras to see if they can figure out who’s responsible. As of Monday evening, Keeth said she hadn’t heard back.
Keeth said she was told an investigation has begun and said she should know within 30 days if Walmart is found responsible. If so, Allison’s ER bill would be paid for.
