Yes! Our Anesthesiologist Assistants return to work today! On the afternoon of 31 May 2000, Ohio Governor Bob Taft signed the Bill authorizing their immediate return to work. Congratulations to us all for weathering this crisis! WELCOME BACK AA'S!

22 May 2000

Anesthesiologist Assistant Crisis, Day Seven.
One of two letters to Governor Taft, asking for help in speeding passage of S.B. 278 to get our AA's back on the job.

16 May 2000

Anesthesiologist Assistant Crisis!
Suddenly, at 1500 this afternoon, we learn that we must do without the wonderful help of our twelve Anesthesiologist Assistants! The conservative reaction of the President of our Ohio State Medical Board, Carol L. Egner, M.D., to the
written opinion of our State Attorney General, Betty D. Montgomery, leaves us no choice but to await legislative relief. Our AA's can and we hope soon will be officially licensed by the State of Ohio to do the fine job they have been doing well for thirty years! The Senate has already unanimously passed the relevant legislation (S.B. 278), and the House vote is imminent. We sincerely hope and believe the absence of our AA's will be brief.

Fond fare well and best wishes to our departing anesthesia care team members Mike Krupa and Louise Patterson!
