Still Nobody in Charge

Long time friend and colleague from Kentucky days Leon Hisle reports that he recently had a pacemaker installed at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He had been going to the cardiac clinic on the second floor. The pacemaker was installed directly above on the third floor.

When he went for the pacemaker procedure, they asked for his insurance cards. He replied that they had them already since he had been coming to the clinic for years. They replied that they could not access the clinic computers so they would need the card. When he asked whether any departments within the Medical Center could access computers in other departments, the answer was no.

Leon suggested that they needed me back. (I was Administrator there from 1962, when the hospital first opened, until 1967.)

My response was that nobody was in charge when I was there, either.
