Kaiser Eliminating Services in Manteca: Patients and Nurses Fight Back

1,184 views 9 months ago
Nurses and the community they serve are frustrated by Kaiser engineering the "slow death" of Kaiser Manteca despite outcry from patients and the nurses.

Many patients are being transferred to Kaiser Modesto and other facilities. The largely elderly population served by Kaiser Manteca often cannot travel to visit family members at other facilities, and have struggled to find transport to Kaiser Modesto and elsewhere.
Many elderly patients say they moved to Manteca so that they would be close to a fully functioning hospital.

Services being eliminated at Kaiser Manteca include:

Maternity, Cardiology, Radiology, Orthopedic, Interventional Radiology, Pediatric, Gastrointestinal Services, GI Specialist services, and Medical Surgical unit closed, greatly reducing beds at Kaiser Manteca.

In addition, a subacute unit unique to Kaiser Manteca houses patients on respirators. Family members have watched as the unit slowly closes down, but they have been unable to get a clear answer about the unit's future from Kaiser administrators. For many of these patients, the subacute unit has been ideal for them. But Kaiser stopped admitting patients there and seems to have stopped referring patients to this unit, despite need.

Here, the community speaks out about how Kaiser is taking services away from the Manteca community.
