on the floor when the crunch times hit, and
the hospital doesn’t have to resort to hiring
contract nurses.

“We’ve honestly had to do some incen-
tives during the busy period. We have people
working two or three extra shifts, but they’re
willing to do it. And I had much rather have
our own staff do it than have somebody else
that we hired from the outside.”

Even housekeeping has proved a critical
arena. “That’s one of the big issues and it was
something I noticed when I first came in. It
just didn’t feel like it should,” Davis said.

Now, staff custodial workers are tasked
with the most important work – proper-
ly cleaning hospital beds – while contract
workers help with common areas like lob-
bies and waiting rooms.

As a result, Davis says quality scores on
environmental services have “absolutely”
gone up. “That’s a huge accomplishment.”

Beds represent the wrench in the works
of emergency treatment. “In the past four
months, our hospital has been complete-
ly full, including today,” said Davis. “We
have had 200 patients on average every day
come into the emergency department, and
there are 41 beds in the ER. Just the math
tells you where the issue is. We have to wait
for discharges.”

While a triage nurse and a physician now
see a patient immediately, there still has to be
a bed in the ER for the patient to be examined.
Once an examination room opens up and it
turns out the patient needs to be admitted
to the hospital, a second wait – often much
worse – begins. “When we have holds in the
ER of eight or nine hours, it’s only because
we’re trying to get a bed emptied,” Davis says.
“The beds don’t have a chance to get cold be-
fore we’ve putting another patient in it.”

She has called in a group consisting of
representatives from every department to
help cure those delays. “We’re taking this
apart thread by thread,” she told the Dis-
trict Board trustees at their monthly meet-
ing last week.

Davis is also talking with representatives
from the agencies that provide transition-
al care after patients are discharged. Those
include home health nurses and Meals on
Wheels for patients being discharged to
home, and for other sicker patients, nurs-
ing facilities, rehab hospitals, and even hos-
pice. Her hope is to “form a continuum with
them, a partnership, so that they can help us
get patients out.” 

clothing business, Haband, has been pur-
suing his art fulltime since retiring to Vero
more than a decade ago. From more tradi-
tional works like portraiture he has moved
to whimsy, vividly painting coconuts he sets
out in his John’s Island front yard at Easter,
and carving a 12-foot-tall totem pole out of
a holly tree.

“Duke really has become a star,” says Jan-
et Tribus, organizer of the well-respected
John’s Island show for more than a decade.
“He has a real artist’s mind.”

Habernickel is a member of the hospital’s

was a patient after suffering a stroke from
which he has fully recovered. He even has a
souvenir of his stay embedded in “Studies in
Green”: a tight shot of the shower drain in his
hospital room.

He hadn’t pointed out that shot to Da-
vis when she happily agreed to exhibit the
work, Habernickel said. She only saw a few
sample panels and they did not include
the finger photo, nor any of several others
that could be construed as controversial: a
squatting dog, a swastika, a sign saying “Je-
sus is Looking for YOU!”

It didn’t take long for those images to find
their audience, as the executive and one
other passer-by took umbrage, warily scan-
ning the tiny tiles in a sort of Where’s Waldo
of offensiveness.

Rossmell said a dozen other viewers re-
acted favorably to the artwork during the 20
minutes he was there. First thing the next
morning, Habernickel got a call to pick up
his work of art. A hospital maintenance crew
had already dismantled it and left in on a
cart in Davis’ office, he said.

Asked for comment, neither Davis nor the
offended executive responded directly, nor
was the hospital forthcoming about a gener-
al policy regarding the art it displays. But an
emailed statement from the hospital’s mar-
keting person seemed to tread lightly on the
inference that anything was actually shock-
ing, and referred only to “negative feedback

Thousands scampi out at ShrimpFest & Brew bash

The ShrimpFest & Craft Brew Hullaba-
loo last weekend was a jumbo success. The
third annual event, a collaborative pre-
sentation by the Rotary Club of Sebastian
and the Exchange Club of Fellsmere, was
moved this year to Riverview Park in Se-
bastian from its previous location on the
grounds of the Historic Fellsmere School.

The three-day crustaceous festival was
filled with music, food and family fun in
support of north county youth sports and
nonprofit organizations. About 300 volun-
teers helped to serve roughly 4,000 pounds
of Florida shrimp to an estimated 15,000
hungry people, according to event chair
Marc Gingras.

Five local restaurants cast their nets
wide, vying to earn the coveted Golden
Shrimp Award. The Chubby Mullet Bar &
Grill served up pickled shrimp; the Old Fish
House Bar & Grill treated festival-goers to
fried shrimp cocktails; Squid Lips prof-
fered peel & eat shrimp; Woody’s Bar-B-Q
made shrimp salad rolls; and the Tiki Bar &
Grill, which took home the trophy for their
sautéed buttered garlic shrimp.

In addition, the Rotary club tossed
shrimp scampi pizzas into a brick oven

thing other than shrimp, food trucks pro-

vided a variety of alternatives. Hollie and Fred Rose.
A Craft Beer Tasting Garden was the per-

fect stopover for those wanting to wet their
whistle, offering ale aficionados a sampling
of suds from more than 20 Florida craft
brewers, including local favorites Ameri-
can Icon Brewery, Orchid Island, Pareidolia
Brewing and Walking Tree Brewery.

Nearly 90 vendors filled the park, hawk-
ing artwork, crafts, jewelry, homemade
soaps and educational exhibits. Face
painting, games and a clown offered dis-
tractions for the children, while a motor-
cycle show on Saturday and car show on
Sunday attracted an older set.

Both declared that the fried shrimp they
polished off was scrumptious, adding that
they couldn’t think of a better way to spend
a Saturday afternoon.

Through deeds and actions, the Rotary
Club of Sebastian and the Exchange Club
of Fellsmere serve individuals in need.

“We are a group of people who have a
heart for and are looking out for people
who need help; who are less fortunate than
us and maybe aren’t in a position to help
themselves,” explained Kim Jones, Rotary
Club of Sebastian president.

Proceeds from the event will benefit

THE MOST PROLIFIC ISN’T SLOWING DOWN WEST NORTH EAST
Q J9653 K 10
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist QJ963 4 K8752
A73 962 Q J 10 5
The most prolific bridge-book author is David Bird from England, with well over 10 8 6 2 AKJ4 73
100 titles. The monks of St. Titus, led by the egocentric Abbot, are his most famous
characters. SOUTH
A8742
In “The Abbot, the Parrot and the Bermuda Bowl” (Master Point Press), the Bozwambi A 10
tribe from the Upper Bhumpopo has qualified for the 2015 Bermuda Bowl in India. The K84
players had learned bridge from missionaries sent there by the Abbot many years ago. Q95
When the Abbot visits the tribe and learns of their success, he insists on being added to
the team. His teammates are Miss Nabooba, Mrs. Okoku, Mbozi and the Witchdoctor; Dealer: North; Vulnerable: Neither
his partner is the Parrot, the tribe’s best player.
The Bidding:
The Parrot made this four-spade contract look easy. What did he do after West led the
heart queen? SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
1 Spades Pass Pass Pass
Declarer needed to find trumps splitting 2-1, but he still might have lost one spade and 4 Spades All Pass LEAD:
three diamonds if East got on lead and shifted to a high diamond, West having the ace Q Hearts
hovering over South’s king.

To maximize his chances, the Parrot won the first trick, ruffed his remaining heart on
the board and led a trump. When East played the 10, the Parrot flicked a low spade
onto the table. West won with his queen, but had no winning defense. If he had played
a club, declarer would have drawn the missing trump and claimed 10 tricks: four
spades, one heart, four clubs and the heart ruff. When West, in desperation, shifted to a
diamond, hoping South had only queen-third, the contract made with an overtrick.

The deals are instructive and the prose entertaining — as usual from this author.
