In an 11th hour move, the state Tuesday granted approval to St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard to shut down its emergency room at 7 a.m. today as part of a temporary closure to allow the hospital to prepare for mold fumigation. The entire 265-bed hospital, which operates the busiest emergency room in Ventura County, will eventually close this month for two weeks in hopes of eradicating a mold problem that has plagued the hospital for most of its 15 years of operation.

Citing concerns about short staffing and unequal pay, nurses at Ventura County's largest hospital announced Wednesday that they have asked a federal labor board to set an election to determine whether a professional union can represent them.

St. John's Medical Plaza is cured now, thanks in part to its ultrasound diagnostic tests. The Santa Monica hospital is scheduled to reopen this week after it was vacated in April for round-the-clock earthquake repairs. The repairs included strengthening the 8-year-old building's steel frame. Ultrasound testing--also used to get pictures of fetuses--revealed that this baby's frame had been weakened by as much as 90%, said J. Randall Moore, president of Morlin Management Corp.

For the second year in a row, St. John's Regional Medical Center is planning to lay off workers because of a major budget shortfall, officials said Thursday. Citing low patient volume and high health care costs, the hospital expects a $4.3-million shortage in its $128-million budget for the fiscal year beginning in July, Charles Padilla, human resources vice president, said. Hospital officials have not yet decided how many jobs to cut, Padilla said, but all will be administrative positions.
