'Why Is There Nothing Left?' Pension Funds Failing At Catholic Hospitals
"Support for NPR and the following message come from Almond Board of California. Did you know almond farmers and processors are dedicated to continuous improvement like putting everything an almond tree grows to good use more about their zero waste goal at almondsustainability dot org in upstate. New York hundreds of former complexities of a Catholic hospital have lost their pensions after their pension fund collapsed now. Their situation illustrates a problem. That is pretty widespread. Many many religious organizations are not covered by federal program that protects most other employees pensions. NPR's Chris Arnold brought us this report the people who worked at Saint Clair as hospital in Schenectady New York say it was like being part of a big family for some especially. My Dad worked there as a pharmacist when when I was a young kid and I you know I remember I was always there. It seemed like always part of that community of people care and Bradley followed her dad's lead and worked at the hospital for twenty four years and she's a nurse. She's fifty six now. Bradley says the pay wasn't great at Saint Clair's but it was a good hospital. I enjoyed what they did there and believed in the promises that were made about the pension but the hospital which was founded by the Catholic Church ran into financial problems command in two thousand and eight it was folded into a larger hospital system workers were told though at that time that the pension would still be there for them but then a year ago they got letters in the mail. Bradley was told essentially her twenty four years at the hospital didn't matter her pageant was gone. She stands to get nothing. Why is there nothing laughed who screwed up you know who did what to. Who and how come this happen Jr and who's accountable the AARP foundation is asking the same questions. It's it suing the Catholic diocese of Albany on behalf of the workers. The lawsuit says more than six hundred people lost their entire pensions. Bradley says her husband has been has some retirement savings but the couple's not sure that it's going to be enough. We have a daughter who has special needs so we have to worry about her future to now now most people in the US do not have pensions but those that do the vast majority are protected by government insurance program employers with tensions have to pay into it but religious religious organizations such as Catholic hospitals they can opt out and both avoid that expense and the cost of complying with other federal pageant rules. That's what the people managing managing. St Clair's hospital dead so there is no guarantee and many workers really are left with nothing dare. Smith is an attorney with the Aarp Foundation Russian. It's incredibly devastating I mean these folks were relying on this money for their retirement and they were promised over and over there about one million people people with pensions from religious organizations that have no federal backstop. That's an estimate from lawyers in a related case. That's not to say that all those pension plans are in trouble but some are and there is a growing number of lawsuits. The Saint Clair's case argues that even though the hospital had an exemption from the federal rules. It's still violated violated state law by failing to provide the pensions that were promised so dare. Smith says religious groups can't just abandon their workers. This is really a new wave colosseum. It's finding a way to make sure that they can be held accountable sixty nine year old Mary Hart Sean is also affected. She worked in radiology at the hospital and she's he's actually had to sell her house because of this pension debacle and it's still pretty hard for her to talk about it. Now House was going to be the place I retired retired who was just a little house but it sat on a little lake and it was so pretty peaceful and it just wasn't it wasn't gonNA work out. I knew knew it was in an I'm okay. I'm GonNa you know you get through it but it does take its toll on your heart and soul and to actually harsher and says she's better off than most. She's in a smaller class of older workers who were offered seventy percent of their pensions going forward but she says she couldn't trust that the money he would be there so she took a lump sum payout instead which she says wasn't very much money for its part the diocese declined and interview due to the litigation but said in a statement that it knows that people are suffering but that the diocese quote never managed the Saint Clair's pageant find Saint Clair's as a separate corporation and quote Victoria Esposito is a local legal-aid attorney working with the AARP on the case. She says it's not true that the Diaz has no responsibility. This hospital was run by the Catholic Church more specifically diocese of Albany and the diocese of Albany is responsible for making these people whole and paying their pensions like many diocese icees. Albany is facing costs related to the church sex abuse scandal but the lawyers for the workers say the diocese is not bankrupt. There's money there so esposito. Zito hopes the lawsuit can succeed so the people who worked at Saint Clair's hospital can get their pants back Chris Arnold N._p._R. News.
How are seniors coping with the use of electronic health records?
"A thanks to the insurance providers and their demands on doctors shift toward electric delivery of medical care. Most of us can still get a normal doctor's appointment. And, and we still wait the same amount of time, at least, but when we get in there, we don't get as much time with the doctor anymore. Do we well know because it's been baited the doctor spends more than fifty percent of their time, just tapping on the computer and that means sometimes not looking right at you. And then they're doing this work, you know, after hours. Yeah, I've noticed a lot of that in recent doctors appointments, they've got that laptop because they have to have that little sheet for you to take home. That says everything you talked about in there, which is never everything he talked about. And it's getting a little bit frustrating, but how much time you said about half their time I guess, spent filling out forms arguing with the insurance companies. That's what I'm hearing from some doctors is that about right? Yeah. Because the, the electric records are not all that intuitive, you would as you would think, and you have to you know, they have to be accurate. So you really have the, you know, make sure all the details so there and that you've crossed all the teeth. And is there any way for for senior patients, especially for people say, older than seventy or seventy five who really just aren't aren't that technically savvy? Is there any way to get around this whole patient portal? Electron. It communication thing. You know, you know, they, they worry about people hacking into, you know, the, the emails physicians, you know, and they worry about, you know, the protected information and, you know, I think that we could employ people those the cost, but there's more there's more care management, and that, that care manager might have more time to speak to you about different things. And then bring the, the salient questions back to the duck. That's not a bad idea. There's gotta be a way to, to help us. I guess are there any? Any privacy issues other than what you more for the for the doctors files. But what about for the patients themselves with the patient portals? Have you heard any problems with that not necessarily just said it's it's difficult for people to use? And, you know, if you're computer savvy, fine. But if not, it's, it's very frustrating, but you're not you're not computer savvy. You'll never get a doctor a note to the doctor, it'll never happen speaking up. Did you see that dumpster full of records that ah doctor's office through away up? I think on the north side of town somewhere on the news last night. No. A practice was bought and sold, and then bought again, and somebody in that office dumped. Fifteen twenty boxes of medical records into a dumpster, so shredder. Would been easier. I want to spend some time talking about what you and your constituents are trying to put together for seniors and I'm here and talk of this. We mentioned it earlier age friendly health systems. What, what exactly does that entail? So help system was the name given to what we and other people around the country of China do for a while. And that is make the health system, more focused on the needs of the older patient. And so what the, Johnny Harper foundation and the institute for healthcare improvement did, along with the American hospital, sociation and the Catholic hospital. So situation wants to put together a program that could be easily adapted from health system to health system, inpatient and outpatient. Okay is the long term plan to build age friendly clinics first, and then grow them into hospitals or does it make more sense, to build hospitals, first, and then open clinics that follow that model and move patients into hospitals when it makes sense. You know, I don't think there's any appetite of the build the more hospital beds, because they're so expensive one point seven one point eight million dollars per new bed. Holy cow wasn't expensive. No need to do that. Because the patients are ready, they're already occupying hospital beds, what we have to do is build the systems and the processes around the patience that served. Yeah. There's more infrastructure than actual physical structure to be built. I guess it hope the people listening to this program, realize that if they were to get behind something like this, by the way, if they're in a position to contribute financially that they're sort of helping themselves down, the I'll tell you what. Dr if I win the lottery, one of the first big checks his to the consortium. I don't want my name on a building. I really don't wanna place where I can go where the doctor's know how to take care of me that, that won't be too much to ask. I hope it will not to calm in the check. I can assure you. I just want just want to know that there's going to be somebody there who knows about old people when I get there. Dr krummel, Dr from UT hills consortium on aging, let circle back for a second to this current situation in the country, eight friendlier, not how many how many more dedicated facilities do we need specifically for seniors before you you'd feel comfortable. Well, you know, since is it's hard to just now. Go to facilities difficult even to come to the Texas medical center live nearby. But I could imagine that in the city of Houston, if we had one at least in every quadrant, get to help people in the outpatient centers can be spread throughout the city. And then I think that we would we would have a really good start. Great start. You mentioned serving more you mentioned, only thirty five certified Jerry Trish in the entire city of Houston seven hundred thousand seniors. That's death. Not a really good ratio. Is it? Well, the homework force for older. Adults is woefully understand not just the doctors but the nurses and physical therapist and primary care givers in home care giving. And so that's what we're really working on at UT health is developed teaching programs and expand our teaching programs to that. We can. Crane, more people in the specifics of age appropriate cares. The clock is really ticking for, I think it's something like fifty thousand of turning sixty in this country every day is their time to put the right procedures in place and educate enough doctors and, and therapists, and nurses, so that you and I are going to get the care we deserve as we continue age. Well, you know it's, it's, it's not too early. Let's getting a little bit too. No. I think that I don't think that everybody has to be a full-fledged geriatrician. So that if you could give like we're doing, mini course to our wonderful hospital memorial Hermann at the Mets center. And then there's a Jerry tradition is the medical director for in her advice and oversight. Then I think that we could do that. So we're we're going to be looking at offering. So these more of these many fellowship, so that we import as much knowledge as we can without people having take years to do extra study. We're down to one minute is Medicare the solution here can Medicare even afford to cover what we're talking about here. Well, no. Because in my world in geriatric, we are Medicare for all. Yeah. So, and that's it, you know, you, if you take just the population of people on Medicare right now that it does cover the coast, since so. That's why we hope that this h friendly care in addition to providing better quality will also reduce costs, so that the money that is there in Medicare will go further and serve more

"So in December. They did a press release that they were going to stop doing Tupelo Gatien's invective. He's in the hospital. Of course, they did. And now without any announcement. What they've uncovered is that the Bishop found out, and according to recent changes from the end of last year to the. Ethical and religious directives that govern all Catholic Catholic hospitals if somebody becomes aware of quote immoral procedures that are being done. They need to report it to the local Bishop. Data tattletale this is despite the fact that it got to be a narc these health systems are all vertically integrated into massive multi state corporations that are actually all all directly report to the Vatican. Not to the local Bishop the local Bishop officially has no power. But this gives the local Bishop some ability to try to enforce doctrine and dogma when possible, ministers, and physicians aren't following it. So also while this was going on the private OB group that was doing all the labor and delivery and all the women's health stuff in the hospital. Right was purchased by the hospital. All but one doctor quit rather than go through the transition. Well, what are they gonna transition to nothing because they'll start their own group wrestle? No. I know. But I'm saying like you go from representing women's health to be a Catholic puppet. Right. That's all right. And especially when the bishops watching and they're forcing compliance when the Vatican. We'll find out find you. And especially since the illuminates they're gonna murder you in their body and aluminum. One of the doctors who'd been the head of of obstetrics for the hospital. She was one of the ones who resigned from her position with the OB group is like, thank you. But no, thank you. She was at the meeting before they were purchased where they were told by the Bishop and hospital president that they would be what the new rules are going to be no contraceptives. No sterilization procedures. I bet. She was pissed. She was. Yeah. She lives. Apparently like are. You are we seriously we're doing this in two thousand nineteen this is seriously happening right now. We're really doing this. We're doing this. Yeah. Really doing it sucks, and a how long do you think she was there too? Yeah. That she was going to retire. I mean, she's the head then she in there for a while. So I thought like she's not an expert or writing exactly. And so I bet you to they were I bet you there was some Redick euless people who were just what she's resigning. I cannot believe. No. They knew exactly everybody we want you out. So we're going to rules. I just want to know I just want to think of some bumbling person. Who would who's just like why would we want to leave? That's. The one person who stayed no. Based on what she told rewire news. I think if anybody asks she would have told them exactly it is bad medicine to make a woman who is high risk for having an additional pregnancy like somebody who's had multiple c sections to get pregnant again, especially within just a few years that is very dangerous, potentially life-threatening, and is very unethical. Somebody's going to be having getting a tubal ligation in the near future to close them up from one surgery, make them wait six weeks and do a second surgery. Right. That is bad medicine. Yeah. Of course. Well. Catholics. Don't care. That's not. If God will will help you out. Don't worry about it everybody. If you're not meant to have a kid then God will make it. So you don't have a kid. I mean. I mean that whole. So oh, well, if you were meant to live through the second surgery, then you'll live if not the you had that wasn't in the cards..

"So she was fired. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, how what point do you? I I stop feeling for this people because it's like you gotta get a different job. So you don't have protections. These people don't respect you. And they'll let you go soon as they can. So why are you working for these Douches anyway? But that's what the assumption is so easy to just go out and get another job. Well, in the the craziest thing is to Catholics anything that they own a ministry. In the law. They can get away a lot better with that was schools than a lot of their other ministries. So no Catholic hospital would fire a nurse or lab tech for getting pregnant outside of marriage. In fact, most of them offer plus one benefits for unmarried partners schools are under very different category. Which is one reason why I think private education should be abolished. Yeah. Or lease. Systemically? Punished with taxes to a degree. Yeah. Abolished they just need to go. I wouldn't mind that at all level the playing field. Yeah. Just level. The playing field we need. Everybody to have a base level of knowledge and understanding and letting religion get in the way of that is dangerous. It is it is also classes to allow the richest to buy the best education for their children and their children a better chance because if you look at the difference between performance in private schools and public schools. The biggest factor is private schools can be selective and who their students are writing. Which means those kick out the lowest. If you have the top twenty percent of students in your class or the area that you're in and you can teach to the top twenty percent..

The doctor warned him there's no hope for your child, and you better pray for your wife. I was born by emergency Assyrian section the physician took one look at me and baptized me on the spot convinced. I would soon perish a nurse later. Did to all told I've been baptized three times as my mom finally woke up nearly delirious from blood loss in anaesthesia. She asked the nurse about me. It was a boy she replied, my mom collapsed on the pillow and grieved believing that in using the past tense. It was a boy the nurse it. My death is tenderly as possible. And on the third day, the family pediatrician showed up what are you doing here? My mom asked. I've come to see your baby the doctor replied my baby's dead. My mom cried. No, he's not exclaimed the doctor, and they quickly returned with me incubator and all. My resurrection is now the stuff of legend recounted again and again at family gatherings. It always includes how my uncle Jerry responded when mom proudest could be unwrapped mice waddling gosh. While we get them that small we throw them back. Mom wouldn't talk to him for a week. But now, even she laughs. Despite all my baptisms. I'm not a religious, man. Even so I am uncommonly grateful to be alive. I've always believed I've been living on borrowed time. And so we've tried to make the most of it. I used to repeat to myself that old adage live every day as if it were your last and one of these days, you'll be right?
