Treatment and recovery for a serious burn injury is usually a painful and tedious process. Because they require specialized care, patients with major burns need treatment at a specialized burn center. In the San Fernando Valley, such injuries are treated at the Burn Center at Sherman Oaks Community Hospital. The burn unit there is one of three in Los Angeles County and the only one in the Valley.

Three firefighters monitoring a controlled burn of brushland this morning in Stone Canyon were attacked by a swarm of yellow jackets and treated at a Sherman Oaks hospital for numerous stings, authorities said. Two Los Angeles city firefighters and a captain with the Los Angeles County Fire Department were stung by the insects, apparently when either the fire or firefighters on the scene disturbed a hive about 10 a.m., city fire spokesman Jim Wells said. The victims, whose names were not released, were not seriously hurt and drove themselves to Sherman Oaks Community Hospital to be treated for the stings, Wells said.

Community leaders and organizations in Sherman Oaks have hit upon a novel approach to making their town a better place to live--cooperation.

Sherman Oaks Community Hospital will not face criminal charges for refusing to provide emergency treatment to two patients because there is no proof that the hospital evaluated its patients' ability to pay before deciding whether to treat them, the Los Angeles city attorney's office said Wednesday. "The investigation found there really was no basis for finding fault with what Sherman Oaks did," said Deputy City Atty. Ellen R. Pais, who handled the case. "It wasn't that big a deal."

Dr. Michael S. Gottlieb, credited with being the first physician to describe AIDS as a new disease in 1981, is joining the Sherman Oaks Community Hospital, which in 1985 became the first hospital in Southern California to establish a unit dedicated exclusively to treating AIDS patients. Gottlieb, who was Rock Hudson's physician during the late actor's battle with the disease, will become medical director of the hospital's AIDS unit, hospital officials said Friday.

Dr. A. Richard Grossman can no longer say that crime does not pay. As part of an insurance fraud conviction, a Hollywood-based lending company was ordered to pay $20,000 to the Sherman Oaks Community Hospital Burn Center Foundation. "It was a godsend," said Grossman, who heads the burn center. "I've got 23 people in here now. It's like a triage center." The burn center received a check for $20,000 Tuesday. In the fraud case, Government Funding Inc.

Many of the men who come to the two weekly AIDS support groups at Sherman Oaks Community Hospital are not sick. They have not gotten the cancers, pneumonia or other disorders associated with AIDS or AIDS-related complex. But these men have tested positive for HIV, commonly known as the AIDS virus. Unless there is a research breakthrough, most--if not all--of them are expected to eventually come down with an AIDS-related disease.
