Martin Luther King Jr Harbor Hospital May Be Forced To Close – Woman Died On Floor of Emergency Room

MLK Harbor Hospital

(Best Syndication) As other hospitals in the metro area have been closing their emergency rooms, the death of a woman last month puts pressure on Martin Luther King Jr. Harbor Hospital (formerly King / Drew) emergency services to take corrective action or risk being shut down. A report revealed that a woman bled to death on the floor of the emergency room last month.

This case even made national news. "Here's a person crying for help. Will no one help?" said Arthur Caplan, a bioethicist at the University of Pennsylvania who discussed the case on CNN this week. "What kind of a society are we when we can't even render aid to someone who's in their own blood and vomit on the floor and you're mopping around them? It's a kind of morality tale of a society gone cold."

(Best Syndication) May was the slowest month in 12 years for home sales in Southern California. The slowdown hit the lower priced home markets the hardest left the Southland's median sales price nearly unchanged.

According to Dataquick, a data provider for the real estate and appraisal industry, 19,874 new and resale homes sold in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura, San Bernardino and Orange counties last month. This is the lowest since May of 1995 when only 17,712 homes sold. The “strongest” month of May was 2005, when 35,557 homes sold.

The high desert market may have been hit the hardest including Victorville, Barstow, Hesperia, Phelan, Pinon Hills, and Adelanto. The company reports that “the declines are in the lower half of the market, while prices are flat or even increasing in the upper half of the market”. The high desert has some of the lowest priced homes in the southland.

(Best Syndication) A much needed recycling center is being proposed for Pinon Hills by Blaine Barton near the Phelan dump. The center is expected to take both redemption and non-redemption materials including iron, tin, brass, copper, aluminum, wire, cardboard, newspaper, car bodies and car batteries.

Barton told the Pinon Hills Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) on Thursday that he has plans for a 12,000 square foot facility on 2.5 acres next to the CR&R Disposal Company. The location is convenient for people traveling to the dump and could benefit the community because Barton says he will pay for the recyclables.

Barton calls his project the Phelan Recycling Center, even though it will be located in Pinon Hills. It will include a 70 foot truck scale and processing equipment will be operated and maintained on the facility. Local residents and businesses will not have to drive into Victorville to recycle. The address for the project is 9882 Buckwheat Rd. Pinon Hills CA 92372.

(Best Syndication) Jim Tatum, president of American Housing Group who had planned on developing half acre lots in Oak Hills has withdrawn the proposed project. Local residents had been fighting the project for months.

The Oak Hills Property Owners Association (OHPOA) met with Jim Tatum on Thursday to discuss other options for that land. The OHPOA spent years developing a plan for their community which includes 2 ½ acre lot sizes. The proposed development called for 197 lots on 148 acres. Even Tatum believes this may not have conformed to their community plan.
