Problem 1

The last time that the Town of Crawford New York had an assessment revaluation was 1985. An assessor has not stepped into a home in 33 years. If you are a new home owner or recently bought a home, you are carrying the tax burden.

Issue 3

Problem 3

If you live in Orange County, your local suicide prevention center is Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health. Orange County Mental Health Association is not up to national standards.

Problem 4

I was a ORMC's volunteer for past three years in the pet therapy  program.  As a volunteer, you become very close to the institution. Born and raised in Orange County, you become very passionate about your hospital. ORMC is a great hospital, but there is always room for improvement. Using their website and compare it to reality, you find problems.This is a platform to bring up problems and resolve them using common sense.

This website shows a dog lying on a patient in bed. This is wrong because it is a contamination problem. MRSA, C.difficile and other contagious diseases could be passed between pet therapy dogs and patients. This is a major health concern. I suggested only pet the dog, not on the bed, and sanitize the patient's hands.

Pet therapy certification teaches you that we have to work with the patients and the staff. By going to the emergency room, urging care, cancer center, the front lobby waiting room, you are picking up contamination. People are waiting to see a doctor, and they are not patients. The doctor will determine if they have infectious diseases. Now the pet is contaminated and is going to visit the patients and staff.

Mr. DeJong,
No, it won’t be necessary to send me the entire recording, thank you. You should never feel pressured to disclose PHI of any sort, regardless of who asks for it. All staff of the GHVHS are required to abide by our HIPAA policies. After review of this scenario there is no HIPAA violation. Per policy, we are obligated to keep patient health information confidential. Ms. Linken did not use the PHI in any form when you disclosed it to her. I have closed this investigation and I wish you the best Mr. DeJong.
Respectfully,
Trish
Corporate Compliance Officer and Director of Audit & HIPAA Privacy

Hello Mr. Sugrue,​
I found this:​
"5. GHVHS will perform random audits to ensure that only staff members with a “need to know” have accessed particular PHI."  ​

https://www.crmcny.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/2017-ghvhs-hipaa-breach-discipline-policy.pdf

When did you preform an audit of the Management of the ORMC Volunteer Department?​
Thank you,​
Joe DeJong​
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Privacy is very important. ORMC upper management has a "need to know problem". They do not follow HIPAA. When you are entering the hospital, submit a request restriction of personal information.
 This is from ORMC's website:
"Right to Request Restrictions: You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on the medical information we use or disclose about you for treatment, payment or health care operations. You also have the right to request a limit on the medical information we disclose about you to someone who is involved in your care or the payment for your care, like a family member or friend. For example, you could ask that we not use or disclose information about a surgery you had."

ORMC is a private, not-for-profit hospital. Our hospital is no longer a community hospital and not transparent. A community hospital and its medical staff should be able to get to care that is coordinated through the eyes of the patient at a much faster pace than a large hospital company. Denying my request for a copy of their annual report lacks transparencies.
