BY DON RENTCtl The only real problem which the first 14 4aye of medicare has presented for the Charles Town General Hospital is the same one that has given ~l the nation's hoe pitals a headache - hours of extra paper work, according to Harry C. Harner, h )spital administrator. Whether the full impact of the free medical service for the aged will come soon. or net until some months, or years, from now. is still too eaxly to ~y, Harrier stat- ed. So far it has not overtaxed the patient load capabilities of the Charles Town Hospital, Har- net declared. To help handle some of the added job of data collecting and form writing, the Charles Town Hospital has added one extra clerk-typist to the business staff, Harrier said And to expedite commuuications in checking the eligibility of elderly hospital pat- ients for medicare service, a tele type machine has been installed at the hospital.

Harrier said. Nine Waiting In Hospital A total of nine elderly patients who were eligible for medicare service were already in the hospi- tal when the program became effective at 12:01 a. m. July 1. These patients were immediately transferred to medicare service. That same day another five pat- tents were admitted to the hospi. tai under ~m~dicare service, mak. ing a total of 14. With the hospital load at 41 on July 1, and 14 of them under medicare ,this gave the hospital about a 35-percent ratio of medi, care patients, Harner stated.
