IHS Hearing

NOTICE TO ALL TRIBAL MEMBERS IN SOUTHWEST OKLAHOMA

SPECIAL MEETING ON URGENT INDIAN HEALTH ISSUES

The Comanche Nation will host a Special Meeting at the Comanche Nation Complex, at the New Conference Room on Tuesday, July 22, beginning at 10 o’clock AM to hear your stories about ongoing and urgent concerns over:

1.)        the quality of healthcare being delivered to tribal members;

2.)        the timely accessibility of that healthcare through normal clinic visits, hospital care, emergency room care and contract referrals:

3.)        the timely accessibility of adequate drugs, medical devices and other health aids;

4.)        the identification of those doctors, dentists, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, lab workers, and support staff who are providing exceptional care for tribal members, and those who are not;

5.)        the dignity and respect shown or not shown to tribal members when obtaining healthcare;

6.)        the need for greater involvement by tribes and tribal members in the IHS decisions, and decision-making processes, which directly affect the healthcare outcomes by tribal members;

7.)        and any other issues and concerns you wish to bring to our attention.

The Comanche Nation is seeking information to determine the advisability of taking legal action, potentially in concert with other tribes, to protect our tribal members’ rights to quality health care from the Indian Health Service; so its legal counsel will guide the discussion. The meeting is OPEN ONLY to ALL members of the Comanche Nation, ALL Indian people receiving healthcare services in Southwest Oklahoma—who are the Comanche Nation’s special invited guests for this meeting, and other special invited guests. For further information about this meeting, please contact Lindsay Early at (580) 291-9688.

(IF YOU WISH TO SHARE YOUR CONCERNS CONFIDENTIALLY, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO SO.)

 

PLEASE ATTEND THIS MEETING—IT IS URGENT AND IMPORTANT THAT WE HEAR YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCES ABOUT THESE CRITICAL ISSUES. THE QUALITY OF HEALTHCARE BEING RECEIVED BY ALL TRIBAL MEMBERS MUST BE PROTECTED  AND IMPROVED NOW.
