The entire football coaching staff at Alhambra High was let go on Tuesday because nutritional supplements were provided to its players, according to a published report. Nutritional supplements that included extremely low dosages of the naturally produced chemical creatine were apparently provided by the coaches to seven of the players who had made requests about the product, the report said.. The staff was fired by new principal Duane Russell, who assumed the reigns at that school earlier this week, the report said. Chuck Leonardis, the fired head coach, just got the job in December. He said in the published report that no school rules were broken and that he and his staff didn’t try to hide anything. However, according to the report another coach in the district said coaches cannot buy any kind of products

Detectives from the Special Victims Bureau arrested a teacher’s aide, 30-year-old Mandy Morales from the McKinley Children’s Center, Canyon View School, San Dimas, for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor. The case originated at the school after a journal belonging to Ms. Morales was found and detailed an on-going sexual relationship with a student . This relationship resulted in Ms. Morales having a child who was fathered
by the victim. The victim was 16-years-old when the sexual relationship began in 2011. Ms. Morales has been placed on administrative leave. Ms. Morales was arrested at her residence, and booked at San Dimas Sheriff’s Station for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse. She was released after posting $50,000 bail. Ms. Morales was arraigned today at Pomona Superior Court, 350 West Mission Boulevard, Pomona.

ers with additional ways to use water efficiently during summer’s warmer months.” Understanding the importance of water conservation to California’s future, Governor Edmond G. Brown Jr. urged residents to conserve outdoors this summer and recently declared July “Water Smart Month” in California. Statistics also demonstrate how residential water usage increases throughout summer. During winter, San Gabriel 1-inch meter users have an average monthly water consumption of 9,186 gallons during cooler months. During summer, consumption increases to 11,815 gallons of water. 5/8-inch meter users have an average monthly water consumption of 7,226 gallons during winter. Their consumption rises to 13,269 gallons of water during summer. Fifty percent of the water used outdoors is wasted
because of evaporation, wind or runoff. Tips to Conserve Water Outdoors: * Use a broom instead of a hose to clean sidewalks and save up to 100 gallons of water. * Water lawns before 8 a.m. to save up to 25 gallons of water by allowing time for the water to soak in and avoid evaporation. * Adjust irrigation timers to water lawn zones no more than three times per week and for no more than seven minutes per cycle. Lawns do not need to be irrigated every day. Shrub and tree zones typically need to be watered only one or two times per week. * Check sprinkler systems for leaks, overspray and broken sprinkler heads and save up to 500 gallons per month. * Adjust sprinklers so they do not over-spray onto streets, sidewalks and driveways. * Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants

to slow down evaporation and save as much as 1,500 gallons of water per month. * Repair irrigation leaks to pipes, valves and heads, and consider a pressure reducer if misting occurs since this increases evaporation even before it reaches your lawn. * Cover pools to prevent up to 20,000 gallons of water from evaporating each year.
VP Biden honors fallen firefighters at ceremony Fire trucks and engines from around the country including the San Gabriel Valley honored the 19 firefighters killed more than a week ago as they were fighting the fast-moving Yarnell Hill fire in Arizona. Vice President Biden and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, presented the family members of those killed with American and Arizona flags, as well as a bronze Pulaski tool during the large memorial service. The pulaski is a special hand tool used in wildland firefighting.The tool combines an axe and an adze in one head, similar to that of the cutter mattock, with a rigid handle of wood, plastic,

2.5 million Californians had personal information compromised Attorney General Kamala D. Harris has released the first report detailing the 131 data breaches reported to her office in 2012, showing that 2.5 million Californians had personal information put at risk through an electronic data breach. The report found that 1.4 million Californians would have been protected if companies had encrypted data when moving or sending the data out of the company’s network. “Data breaches are a serious threat to individuals’ privacy, finances and even personal security,” Attorney General Harris said. “Companies and government agencies must do more to protect people by protecting data.” In 2003, California was the first state to pass a law (AB 700, Simitian) mandating data breach notification, which requires businesses and state agencies to notify Californians when their personal information is compromised in security breach. In 2012, companies and state agencies subject to
the law were required for the first time to report any breach that involved more than 500 Californians to the Attorney General’s Office. (SB 24, Simitian) While not required by law, Attorney General Harris is issuing this report that analyses the data breach notices reported in 2012, provides information to the public about those breaches, and makes recommendations to companies, law enforcement agencies, and the legislature about how data security could be improved. Those recommendations include practices that would decrease the number of data breaches, make it easier for consumers to recover from the loss or theft of their personal information, and call for law enforcement agencies to more aggressively target breaches involving unencrypted personal information. First, companies should encrypt digital personal information when moving or sending it out of their secure Please see page 7
Homeowners in the Los Angeles area paid median of $210,000, 2011 American Housing Survey reports Homeowners in the Los Angeles-Long Beach, Calif., metro division paid a median of $210,000 for their homes, according to a 2011 American Housing Survey profile released today. The median purchase price of homes constructed in the past four years was higher at $365,000. Nationally, homeowners paid $110,000 overall and $235,000 for new construction. There was no statistically significant difference between the national and Los Angeles median purchase price of homes constructed in the last four years, and between the overall median purchase price and the median purchase price of homes constructed in the last four years in the Los Angeles area. The profile released today provides information on the area’s housing costs, mortgages and a variety of other physical and financial characteristics about housing in the Los Angeles area. The statistics come from the American Housing Survey, which is sponsored by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and

conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, and is the most comprehensive housing survey in the United States. National data are collected every odd-numbered year and metropolitan area data are collected on a rotating basis. “The last five years remind us how central housing is to each of us personally, to the fiscal health of our cities and counties, and the national economy. For 40 years, the American Housing Survey has provided a unique set of data that connects the detailed characteristics of who is living in homes to the detailed characteristics of the homes themselves,” said Kurt Usowski, HUD’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Economic Affairs. “From the American Housing Survey, we can see why people chose to move, how often homes need repairs, and the extent to which housing costs are outpacing income growth. All this information can help inform policymaking around continued recovery in Los Angeles and other metropolitan areas.” “We are pleased to have the opportunity to col-
laborate with HUD on these profiles,” said the Census Bureau's Arthur Cresce, Jr., Assistant Division Chief for Housing Characteristics. “Analysts in government and business study the nation's housing very closely and the AHS yields a wealth of information that can be used by professionals in nearly every field for planning, decision-making, and market research.” Some highlights for the Los Angeles area include: Physical Characteristics: The median year occupied homes were built in the Los Angeles area was 1961, compared with 1974 nationally. In the Los Angeles area, 27.7 percent of occupied homes used electric heating and 71.4 percent used piped gas. Nationally, piped gas was the main heating fuel, used by 50.4 percent of occupied homes. Electricity was used by 35.3 percent of occupied U.S. homes. Among owner-occupied homes in the Los Angeles area, 29.6 percent had working carbon monoxide detectors, compared with 46.3 percent nationally.
Among Los Angeles area homes, 61.7 percent of owner-occupied units in the area had central air, compared with 72.5 percent of units across the U.S. Financial Characteristics: Median monthly expenditures for owners in the Los Angeles area totaled $250 for real estate taxes, $87 for electricity and $75 for property insurance. Respective national medians were $151, $121 and $58. Among the area’s owner-occupied homes, 75.0 percent had a regular and/ or home equity mortgage and 32.6 percent had a refinanced primary mortgage. The respective national rates were 65.4 percent and 23.4 percent. Homeowners in the Los Angeles area had median monthly mortgage payments of $1,650 in 2011, compared with $1,015 nationally. The American Housing Survey coverage of the Los Angeles-Long Beach, Calif., metro division matches the 2009 Office of Management and Budget definition.

rated areas of Los Angeles County by addressing issues identified by the community. The program will utilize the resources of the Countywide Services Division, Temple Sheriff’s Station, COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services) Bureau, Reserve Forces Bureau, and volunteers from the Community Law Enforcement Partnership Program, as well as other County, State and Federal agencies. As the cost-neutral program expands, it will multiply the field forces of all Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Patrol Stations. The Public Trust Partnership Program effort will
begin when the ambassadors administer a community survey at each residence in the program area. Survey responses will be used to identify the ongoing quality of life and crime issues deemed most important by the citizens served by Temple Station. Captain Nee and his ambassadors discussed concerns with the community in an effort to develop and implement strategies to combat the issues identified. These efforts include operations focused on burglary suppression, narcotics suppression, gang mitigation, graffiti/vandalism abatement, juvenile delinquency, neighborhood safety after
dark, abandoned vehicles, stray animal control, illegal vendor enforcement, loud parties, and enhanced traffic enforcement, among other areas of community concern. The fundamental principle of the “Public Trust Partnership Program” is to establish and nurture positive relationships with the people the Sheriff’s Dept. serves. It is the Department’s mission to steadfastly cultivate meaningful partnerships with diverse communities throughout Los Angeles County and to enhance public safety through a focused effort between law enforcement and the public.

Lounging in luxury at the Luxe BY GREG ARAGON Sometimes I like to be in the middle of the action and sometimes I just want to getaway and relax. Thanks to the Luxe City Center Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles I recently experienced both of these scenarios in one night! The adventure began when a friend and I checked into the luxurious boutique hotel and made our way to a chic 7th floor suite. Overlooking Staples Center and LA Live, the room was smack dab in the middle of downtown fun. Out my window I could see and almost touch the ESPN Zone, the Grammy Museum, Staples Center, Nokia Theater, and scores of hip restaurants and nightspots. I could gaze out the room’s big, exciting window for hours, but when I wanted privacy, all I had to do was shut the thick curtain and relax in front of the 42” large screen TV, under the giant rainfor-
est shower head, or at the computer desk, with free wireless internet and the innovative GuestLINK system which connects business and entertainment portals seamlessly. Besides 164 cool rooms and 16 luxurious suites, the Luxe also offers many other exciting features. The property boasts a compact fitness center, business center, gift shop, and meeting/banquet space with audio-visual equipment, a hip second floor bar, and an eclectic gourmet restaurant called Figoly. Figoly is named after its prominent location on Figueroa and Olympic streets, and serves an eclectic California-inspired brand of Northern Italian fare. The menu is highlighted by tasty items such as Fritto Misto, with local squid, pig ears, sweet onion, asparagus and tomato marmalade; Tagliatelle, a noodle dish with wild boar, lamb, tomato and pickled mustard seeds; or Brasato al Borolo, with oxtail, cheek, gorgonzola and polenta. During our Figoly din-
ner, we sat on the patio enjoying a summer breeze and great Los Angeles views, while devouring a plate of steak fries; Bruschetta with chicken liver, garlic bacon, smoked salmon and more; a fresh garden salad; and veal chops with mushrooms, green tomatoes and parmesan cheese. Other dinner favorites at Figoly include authentic Italian pizzas and pastas, and a tasty variety homemade pastas. After dinner, we hit the hotel’s swanky bar and enjoyed a couple unique cocktails that were infused with the likes of bourbon, mushrooms and finely aged balsamic vinegar. While sipping away, we made new friends from Japan, Germany and Italy. From the bar we walked across the street to LA Live. Opened in 2008, LA Live is a $2.5 billion entertainment complex with scores of restaurants, nightclubs, concert venues, movie theaters, bars, apartments, hotels, an outdoor skating rink and more. Besides other amenities, the Luxe also features

square foot sanctuary was burnt to the ground along with substantial damage to the adjacent rectory. The fire raged for over six hours as fire fighters battled 60 to 100 foot high flames. The loss was preliminarily estimated between $10 million and $17 million dollars. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), Arson and Explosives Detail (AED) immediately responded to the location and began the preliminary investigation. The fire was determined to be arson. The investigation expanded to include the Federal Bureau of Alcohol To-
bacco and Firearms (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), FBI Emergency Response Team, in addition to LASD AED. Crime Stoppers and We Tip hotlines were activated and within days of the incident, several credible leads were received. After a year of complex investigation, Suspect Gregory Shiga was arrested on May 14, 2012 by LASD AED detectives. The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Target Crimes Deputy District Attorney R. Rose and five felony counts were filed, including Aggravated Arson Likely To
Produce Great Bodily Injury With Special Allegations, Arson To An Inhabited Dwelling, Arson To A Structure, Use Of Flammable/Accelerant Incendiary Device and Burglary. The case was presented at Pomona Superior Court and on July 9, 2013, after more than two weeks of jury trial, the jury found Shiga guilty on all five felony counts. Shiga’s sentencing date is set for July 19, 2013. This investigation concludes a successful joint investigation by lead investigators from both the LASD AED Unit and the West Covina FBI Office.

lowest protein dosage available was being made available to the students. CIF State rule 22B12 says that coaches "agree to only give non-muscle building nutritional supplements." He added school officials had already approved nutritional supplements in the form of Gatorade that
would give the students fluids and 400 nutritional supplement bottles during the start of full-pad practices, the published report said. However, practices cannot start until a new coach is found. The Moors are slated to start the season against Arcadia High at Moor Field on Aug. 20, the published report said.

Legislation combating veteran homelessness in California passes key senate committee The Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Act by Speaker John A. Pérez, which aims to help California veterans and their families get off the streets and into homes, unanimously passed a key Senate Committee yesterday, making it one step closer to passing the legislature. AB 639 focuses on providing housing for veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk for becoming homeless, as well as providing services to help them obtain and keep their homes, such as job training, underemployment assistance, mental health counseling, physical rehabilitation and substance abuse treatment. “We are also seeing an increased number of younger veterans and women veterans and their families
becoming homeless at rates faster than their Vietnamera counterparts,” Speaker Pérez said. “Providing more supportive housing opportunities will help to reduce the number homeless veterans and also significantly decrease healthcare and public safety costs as many homeless veterans unfortunately get tangled in our jail system and disproportionately use our emergency rooms.” The Act provides California’s voters with the opportunity to repurpose $600 million in existing veterans’ bond funds to respond more effectively to the housing needs of today’s veteran population and their families. More than $1 billion of voterapproved funds has been put aside for single family homes and farms, while the
need for multifamily, transitional and supportive housing has greatly increased. AB 639 expands on proven and cost-effective supportive housing and service models that will reduce veterans’ homelessness, leverage public and private dollars, and decrease other public costs (e.g. health care and incarceration expenditures). California has the largest veteran population in the US, with almost two million veterans calling California home—a number which is expected to rise by over 200,000 when the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq wind down. California also has the most homeless veterans than any other state, with 25 percent of homeless veterans in the nation residing in the state. If AB 639 passes, California will be at the forefront of the country’s efforts to end veteran homelessness by 2015. The next step for the bill is the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Serial rapist granted conditional release from prison In May, Judge Gilbert Brown granted serial rapist Christopher Hubbart’s request for conditional release from custody and determined that Hubbart should be conditionally released to Los Angeles County, where he was born and raised. Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has announced that her office will file a writ challenging a Santa Clara County Superior Court judge’s ruling to release a sexually violent predator in Los Angeles County. Hubbart admitted raping approximately 40 women throughout California between 1971 and 1982, including 26 women in Los Angeles County. “Our ultimate goal is to
seek justice for all residents of Los Angeles County and make sure sexually violent predators remain in custody,” Lacey said. “This inmate has a long history of horrific violence against women and we must act to keep our community safe.” “If these crimes were committed today, this inmate’s release would not be in question,: Lacey assured residents. “Today’s violent sexual predators face life in prison.” The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office vigorously opposed Judge Brown’s order to conditionally release Hubbart to Los Angeles County. District Attorney Lacey will ask the 6th District Court of Appeal in San Jose
today to compel the Superior Court to vacate its order granting Hubbart’s conditional release to Los Angeles County. She also will ask the court to stop Hubbart’s release from state custody until the trial court reconsiders its domicile order. Earlier this week, Lacey directed her staff to begin notifying victims from Hubbart’s earlier Los Angeles County cases about his possible release from custody.
San Gabriel girl kidnapped by Altadena man A 20-year-old Altadena man was arrested in the early morning hours of July 4 for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting his San Gabriel girlfriend, sheriff’s deputies said. According to deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Altadena Station, the suspect came to the victim’s home on July 3 to talk to her about their daughter. However, as the conver-
BY SHEL SEGAL sation became argumentative, the suspect allegedly pushed the victim to the ground and forced her into his vehicle, deputies said. The suspect then drove her around the area for about three hours before finally releasing her, deputies said. On a tip from deputies at Temple Station in Temple City, deputies from Altadena Station went to the suspect’s last known address in Al-
tadena and discovered his car there in the driveway, officials said. The suspect voluntarily surrendered himself to deputies and was placed under arrest for kidnapping and assault, deputies said. He was later booked at Temple Station. In addition, Temple Station detectives are handling the investigation, deputies said.

part of our coalition,” Messina said. “All of us impacted the same. During the next 18 months, during the environmental impact study it is our time to make the community aware of not only the need but the seriousness of this completion.” Messina added now that money for the plan is available, now is the time to build it. “The big lag on our part is because financing had never been identified,” she said. “So, it’s really hard for us to keep people encouraged and interested when we couldn’t say there was money to do this. The tunnel is the only (plan) that’s viable because there’s funding for that. It will be built through a public-private partnership. That means the company fronts all the construction money, they do the maintenance and they
will run it. They will collect a toll. It will be a toll road. So that’s why it’s do-able now.” She added she doesn’t understand why the people of cities along I-210 – namely South Pasadena, Pasadena and La Canada – are opposing the project and have done so for years. “It doesn’t affect them at all,” Messina said. “I don’t know why they’re so upset, especially the La Canada people. What about all the people south (of Valley Boulevard on Interstate 710)? The Cudahys? The Maywoods who gave their property to get the Long Beach Freeway to where it is now? It was never intended to end on Valley Boulevard.” Not so fast with the construction, said Pasadena resident Sylvia Plummer with the group “No on 710.” Plummer said the project is just “a
bad idea.” “It’s a bad idea for all the cities involved,” Plummer said. “This tunnel is a fivemile, no-exit tunnel. My concerns are the pollution, the trucks, the goods movements going through the tunnel. We already have enough traffic on the 210 and this is going to bring more. (Alhambra) will suffer more. Alhambra is complaining about traffic on Fremont. What about when people don’t want to pay a toll of $5 to $15? They’re going to find out then what traffic is really like.” Fellow group member and Pasadena resident Ann Kelley agreed with Plummer. “It doesn’t solve Alhambra’s problems and it doesn’t solve surface street problems between here and the 210 Freeway,” Kelley said. “I hope it will never go through.”

Californians' personal information compromised Continued from page 4
network. In 2012, encryption would have prevented reporting companies and agencies from putting over 1.4 million Californians at risk. The Attorney General’s Office will make it an enforcement priority to investigate breaches involving unencrypted personal information. In addition, companies should review and tighten their security controls on personal information, including training employees and contractors. Companies should make the breach notices they send easier to read. The report found that the average reading level of the notices submitted in 2012 was 14th grade, much higher than the average U.S. reading level of 8th grade. Recipients need to be able to understand the notices so that they can take appropriate action to protect their information. Finally, the report recommends that legislators consider expanding the law to require notification of breaches involving passwords. Attorney General Harris is supporting legislation, SB 46 by Senator Ellen Corbett, which would require notification of a breach involving a user name
or email address, in combination with a password or security question and answer that would permit access to an online account. Additional key findings of the report include: The average (mean) breach incident involved the information of 22,500 individuals. The median breach size was 2,500 affected individuals, with five breaches of 100,000 or more individuals’ personal information. More than 1.4 million Californians would not have been put at risk, and 28 percent of the data breaches would not have required notification, if the data had been encrypted. The retail industry reported the most data breaches in 2012: 34 (26 percent of the total reported breaches), followed by finance and insurance with 30 (23 percent). More than half of the breaches (56 percent) involved Social Security numbers, which pose the greatest risk of the most serious types of identity theft. More than half of the breaches (55 percent) were the result of intentional intrusions by outsiders or by unauthorized insiders. The other
45 percent were largely the result of failures to adopt or carry out appropriate security measures. Attorney General Harris established the Privacy Enforcement and Protection Unit in 2012 to enforce federal and state privacy laws regulating the collection, retention, disclosure, and destruction of private or sensitive information by individuals, organizations, and the government. This includes California’s Online Privacy Protection Act, as well as laws relating to cyber privacy, health and financial privacy, identity theft, government records and data breaches. In October 2012, Attorney General Harris announced a settlement with Anthem Blue Cross over allegations the company breached its members’ personal data by failing to protect their Social Security Numbers. A complete copy of the data breach report and a list of all 131 breaches are attached to the online version of this release at http://oag.ca.gov.

UCLA researchers find link between intestinal bacteria and white blood cell cancer Researchers from UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC) have discovered that specific types of bacteria that live in the gut are major contributors to lymphoma, a cancer of the white blood cells that are part of the human immune system. The study, led by Robert Schiestl, member of the JCCC and professor of pathology and laboratory medicine, environmental health sciences, and radiation oncology, was published online ahead of press today in the journal Cancer Research. In rodents, intestinal bacteria influence obesity, intestinal inflammation, and certain types of epithelial cancers. Those cancers affect the coverings of the stomach, liver or colon. However, little is known about the identity of the bacterial species that promote the growth of or protect the body from cancer, or about their effect on lymphoma. Up to 1,000 different species of bacteria (intestinal microbiota) live in the hu-
man gut. Intestinal microbiota number 100 trillion cells; over 90% of the cells in the body are bacteria. The composition of each person's microbiome— the body's bacterial make-up — is very different, due to the original childhood source of bacteria, and the effects of diet and lifestyle. Schiestl's group wanted to determine whether differences in peoples' microbiomes affect their risk for lymphoma, and whether changing the bacteria can reduce this risk. They studied mice with ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), a genetic disease that in humans and mice is associated with a high rate of B-cell lymphoma. They discovered that, of mice with A-T, those with certain microbial species lived much longer than those with other bacteria before developing lymphoma, and had less of the gene damage (genotoxicity) that causes lymphoma. “This study is the first to show a relationship between intestinal microbiota and the onset of lymphoma,” Schi-
estl said. “Given that intestinal microbiota is a potentially modifiable trait, these results hold considerable promise for intervention of B cell lymphoma and other diseases.” The scientists were also able to create a detailed catalog of bacteria types with promoting or protective effects on genotoxicity lymphoma, which could be used in the future to create combined therapies that kill the bacteria that promote cancer (such as antibiotics) and expand the bacteria that protect from cancer (such as probiotics). This work was supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), JCCC, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research, NASA, University of California Toxic Substances Research and Teaching Program, and the UCLA Graduate Division.

We relieve you from the burden of answering day-to-day equipment issues.
“Sleep” is our specialty. That’s right, no oxygen, scooters, wheelchairs, beds or other DME. We supply only PAP equipment and related replenishment supplies. This allows us to be real experts in what we do and to concentrate on delivering the patient care that matters. The fact we serve more than 18,000 patients over 18 states and are growing rapidly is testament to our focus and commitment to delivering timely setup and having happy and compliant patients.
able to continue to collect usage data.
Compliance through great patient care
When calling patients we use data generated from our proprietary Download on Demand® software. This takes the raw data streams from patient’s modems, parses the data to produce compliance reports containing key data points and a graph that our clinicians use so that they can have an intelligent conversation with the patient based on that patient’s actual use of their equipment. Of course patients can (and do!) call in to our patient care center for help and advice from our clinicians at any time.
is what really sets us apart from the pack. Our licensed respiratory professionals (respiratory therapists and registered sleep techs) work with patients from the time of setup and throughout their therapy with one goal in mind…to ensure they quickly adapt to their therapy and stay compliant over time.
Our CPAP Circle of Care® program
was carefully designed to achieve this. The first step of the program is for one of our licensed respiratory therapists to complete the setup faceto-face with the patient, either in their home or their doctor’s office, usually within 72 hours of approval. Our R/T will set the machine to the prescription and then educate the patient on its use, care and maintenance. And educate the patient on what to expect over the first days and weeks of their therapy. We set up all patients on the highest quality machines fitted with wireless modems (regardless of insurance). And we leave the modems on the machine indefinitely so as to be
Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com
After setup patients are passed to our patient care center for ongoing compliance care. Our licensed clinicians make outgoing calls at 72 hours, 30 days and 90 days after setup to interdict any problems patients may be having. A field R/T will make a re-visit to a patient in their home where a problem cannot be resolved over the phone.
Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance
Our goal is to have happy, compliant patients while taking the brunt of the every-day questions patients invariably have. This relieves the burden from our referring physician’s offices who otherwise have to deal with this call volume, and depending on the experience of the doctor in this field, may not be able to answer typical questions the patient has regarding equipment issues (e.g. how to fix a leaking mask).
So you’ve heard it all before? All the DME’s brag that they’re the best and have a great compliance and supply replenishment program.... everybody talks the talk...so who do you believe? Your patients...that’s who! We’ll prove it to you. Send us two or three patients and then ask your patients about the care they received and their opinion of the process... then compare the results to your existing DME provider. Talk to your staff about the interaction they have with our office. Look at our documentation. Reach out to Bill Kleiman (contact info below) to set up an inservice over lunch with your staff to go over our program and answer any questionvs you may have.

Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.
