To mitigate this deficit, one or more of the following service areas will be considered for elimination or reduction by the Board of Supervisors on September 23, 2008: 1. Department of Public Health Public Health Nursing Field Services Expected Savings: $1,244,304 annually Proposed Change: Eliminate the Public Health Nursing Field Services unit.

Field Unit Public Health Nurses will no longer be available for immediate redirection to assist in investigation and mitigation of public health threats. 2. Department of Public Health Specialty Clinic Expected Savings: $443,849 annually Proposed Change: Eliminate the Department of Public Health Specialty Clinic.

Department of Public Health Public Health Nursing Case Management for Patients with Active Tuberculosis Expected Savings: $662,397 annually Proposed Change: Eliminate tuberculosis public health nurse case management services in the Department of Public Health Chest Clinic. This program ensures that patients with tuberculosis complete recommended evaluation and treatment. Staff conduct health assessments, collect specimens, deliver medication and educate patients. Staff also identifies patients who have reactions to their medication or who are not compliant with their treatment. The program provides mandatory reporting of verified cases of tuberculosis to the State. 4.0 Public Health Nurse, 1.0 Office Assistant positions Patients Affected: active tuberculosis cases and suspect cases will not receive case management services. The outcome may result in many patients diagnosed with active tuberculosis receiving inadequate services resulting in an increase incidence of failed treatment, potential for multi drug resistant tuberculosis and increasing the spread of tuberculosis in Fresno County.

This specialty clinic provides health care to patients with active tuberculosis and patients exposed to active tuberculosis.

Department of Public Health Targeted High Risk Screening for Tuberculosis in Homeless Shelter Residents Expected Savings: $41,040 annually Proposed Change: Eliminate tuberculosis screening in homeless shelters.

6 tested positive for HIV or have been diagnosed with AIDS, and bridge services. Bridge services reduce the occurrence of HIV transmission by linking newly HIV infected individuals to comprehensive community HIV treatment services..55 Health Education Specialist, 1.7 Communicable Disease Specialist,.82 Senior Licensed Mental Health Clinician, 1.0 Social Worker positions. Patients Affected: Services would be eliminated for 75 clients that are currently case managed in EIP and another 55 clients receive services in the Bridge component of EIP.
