Revised bed bug ordinance moves to City Council

A joint City Council committee endorsed on Thursday a revised version of an ordinance to comprehensively regulate bed bug extermination procedures.

The measure passed unanimously after less than a minute of discussion, even though the joint Committee on Housing & Real Estate and Health & Environmental Protection tabled a similar ordinance one month earlier. At the earlier meeting, aldermen said that some landlords could be unfairly burdened by the new pest control management and extermination requirements.

Cook County health and hospitals survey shows patient dissatisfaction

A report released this Wednesday by the Cook County Health and Hospitals System shows strong patient dissatisfaction at the 10 county health clinics surveyed by Dr. Krishna Das, interim director of quality and patient safety for CCHHS.

The report faults clinics for long patient wait times, a convoluted appointment process, and a clinical environment that can sometimes treat patients as an “imposition” instead of a “valued person in need.”
