Carson Tahoe Health criticized for posture on sex assault exams

Carson Tahoe HealthCarson Tahoe Health facilities won’t do exams for victims of sexual assault, Carson City Health Officer Susan Pintar said Thursday, and District Attorney Neil Rombardo then criticized CTH.

“They just don’t want to deal with it,” Rombardo charged, saying it means rape victims must travel to Sparks for exams. He said that can cause not only unease for victims already traumatized, but also may complicate matters faced by his office. He made the critical comments during a Board of Health meeting over which Pintar presided, but later expanded his comments for the Nevada Appeal.sex assault

He said he has met with hospital officials but gotten nowhere, and asserted the problem is the health care firm can’t make sufficient money on such exams.

Pintar, while less strident with her comments during the meeting, didn’t quarrel with Rombardo’s meeting remarks. They were backed by Sheriff Ken Furlong at Rombardo’s prompting. Pintar and Furlong sit on the city’s Board of Health along with the Board of Supervisors. The five-member city governing board, as well as the seven-member health board, met Thursday morning.

Pintar’s relatively diplomatic take came after Supervisor John McKenna raised questions about whether providing government money was the issue and Mayor Robert Crowell pointed out nurses are offered training on handling of sexual assault victims and exams by the office of Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto. Pintar kept her comment short.

“There are other issues at play,” she said.

rapeFurlong, for his part, not only backed Rombardo’s comments during the meeting but also decried how sexual assault victims are treated generally in society after they are victimized. “We treatinmates better,” he said.

Anna Anders, Carson Tahoe Health vice president and chief nursing officer, reached later said she didn’t have nurses with proper training and doing the exams isn’t in victims’ best interests. She said CTH accepts victims, sequesters them for comfort and gives whatever aid possible, then calls a sexual assault advocate.

She said the CTH approach keeps the victim’s needs uppermost because proper training of nurses doing such exams and precise handling of the evidence chain is most important. “We don’t have the trained staff here,” she said.

The health board discussion was part of Pintar’s report on city health activities both inside and outside of city government’s Health and Human Services Department. She called it a good news/bad news report, saying the bad was CTH would no longer do the exams but the good news was funding for flu vaccine preparedness for the city had been secured from state government. She said the flu vaccine preparedness initiative would come in October.

Also reporting on health matters were Nikki Aaker, HHS director, and several from her staff.

Among those reports was information concerning growth of city job fairs and resulting jobs, word about coordinating electronic medical records and data to make the best meaningful use of them, and continuing movement toward making Carson City a pedestrian and bicycle friendly community.

The mayor sounded enthusiastic that efforts were going forward to get the city designated a bike-friendly community. He said the last time he checked, the bike-friendly feature was among the top five or 10 things people seek when looking for a new place to live. “You know, it’s a big deal,” said Crowell.

Furlong wins Carson City Sheriff 60% of Carson voters have their head up their ass

ImageSheriff Kenny Furlong wins re-election with 60 percent of vote

Sheriff Kenny Furlong, after keying his campaign to gang smack down and decreased crime, cruised to an outright re-election victory in Tuesday’s primary by defeating three challengers.

“This is a much stronger showing of support than I had expected,” said Furlong, a Carson City native who toiled in public safety during a 20-year career in the military and since in Nevada state and local law enforcement. He was celebrating the triumph with friends and family at home Tuesday night. “Everybody here at my house is overwhelmed by this.”

The incumbent sheriff, first elected in 2003, has held the office since and sought a fourth term. He was challenged by two members of his office and a former Marine Corps provost marshal military policeman. The challengers were Sgt. Daniel Gonzales, Deputy Sheriff Donald Gibson and Lorne R. Houle, the former provost marshal.

With 100 percent of the vote tallied, Furlong cornered 60 percent. Gonzales trailed with 22 percent, Gibson with 17 percent and Houle was last at 1 percent.

Gonzales and Gibson both had criticized Furlong’s management approach. Furlong was challenged over the need for more line officers and public service orientation, with less emphasis on top level personnel.

Gonzales also talked of innovation and technology, as well as providing more even-handed treatment for all citizens. Gibson, who manages the deputy association for collective bargaining, said there should be more line officers and people deployed on the streets each shift. He also said morale has been low and was vocal about attacking drug crime at the pusher level, rather than targeting users and expecting anything other than failure.

Furlong, as early returns gave him what looked like an insurmountable lead, said his work to curb gang activities in Carson City was a significant factor in giving him an outright win. That means he won’t have to deal with the November general election because, if a candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in the primary, the race is over and he or she is the immediate victor. Furlong has touted his gang-fight stance for years.

“I think that was a tremendous factor for us,” Furlong said. He said in the past four years, adjustments have led to proactive changes in combating gang-related crime.

Furlong also campaigned on lower crime rates in general, saying rates had dropped to a 20-year low by 2013 and continued quiescent into this year.

The sheriff said Tuesday night another part of his success was due to working well with the city, including not only government departments but residents and organizations, at a time when cooperation seems in the ascendancy.

“You can’t ask for anything better than that in a community,” he said, noting new City Manager Nick Marano will reap similar dividends. “With a new city manager on board, he’s coming in at a great time.”

Are you aware of the ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court case Times v. Sullivan (1964) which states this, in part:

As Americans we have a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on Public Issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide open. And that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials.

Carson City Sheriff office has been corrupt a long time and their actions include unlawful arrest of victims, threatening victims with violent acts if they request medical attention, refusal of right to counsel and threat and intimidation to prevent recouping of over billing for detention monitoring devices.

This is a police department run by the most corrupt and even honest officers within the department fear for their safety should they speak up.

Carson City middle school lockdown after false gun threat creates hysteria

Carson City middle school lock down after false gun threat creates hysteria. KRNV covered the story with video.

Carson City School District Superintendent Richard Stokes said Wednesday’s lockdown at Carson Middle School was a direct result of a student telling a teacher he had seen two students loading a handgun. The student, who faces a criminal charge of filing a false report, confessed later to authorities that he had made the story up.

The lockdown affected the entire school with nearly 1,200 students, forcing teachers to lock their classroom doors and keep students inside. Anxious parents, who caught wind of what was happening by cell phone and text messages from their children and news reports, arrived at the school and waited outside as law officers scoured the campus, looking for weapons and the young males who were targeted by the student who made the false accusation.

Even though this was ultimately a case of false reporting, Stokes said it should never stop children from reporting things they consider dangerous or would hurt others or themselves. Continue reading
