Memorandum to: Mr. Frank Peterson

Subject: Accident to George .;5cCray

     Recalling conversation of yesterday, George Mc-
Cray, Assistant Engineer at our Central Heating Plants
fell in a coal hopper about 7:30 pom. Saturday, April
4, while in line of duty, and broke his right wrist
just above the Joint.  Our Chief Engineer, Clifford
Warren, tried to get in touch with our Dr* Chambers
both at his office and at his home, but on account of
the holiday he was out ol' town.  He, therefore took
McCray to the Good Samaritan Hospital and was required
there to stand sponsor for the charges before they
would go ahead with the case.   The fracture wa$ Y.-rayed
and put in a cast, the charges being $5.00 for the x-ray
and $1.50 for the cast, making a total of $6.50t.

     This man has been employed by us for nine months
at $17.50 per weeks is married, has no children, is
about 30 years old and is a very satisfactory employee.
His case has now been transferred to Dr. Chambers, but
I should like to ask if the University can take care
of his hospital bill, since he is on a small salary
and would appreciate such treatment by us.

     I might add that this is the first accident we
have had in the six years since the plant was started
up that required hospital attention.   Also, might it
not be a good idea if Dr. Chambers could make arrange-
ments with the hospital to take such a case in his
absence without question, since, if Warren had not
been there to stand sponsor, they apparently would
have waited until some one could be found to be re-
sponsible before doing anything.

                           Yours truly,

                             (Signed) Perry West

Memorandum to:  Mr. Frank Peterson

From:           Perry West

Subject:        Frederick Kaye.

     One of our students, Frederick Kaye, employed as
an assistant in the Central Heating Plant, fell through
a grating and bruised his side.   This occurred about
2:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, April 22, while he was in
line of duty, having just removed a grating from over
the ash pit in order to hoist some rofuse, he stepped
back into this opening and fell about twelve feet
landing on a sump pump in the pit below.   He was im.
mediately taken to the Good Samaritan Hospital where
he was attended by our Dr. J. S. Chambers.   Two X-ray
pictures were taken and the hospital bill is attached
in the amount of $115.0.   No bones were broken and
he was released from the hospital the following day.

     He is a sophomore student in the department of
Mechanical Engineering is eighteen years old and single.
His record is good and his services have been excel-
lent.   He is working his way through college and I
would respectfully ask that we take care of his hos-
pital bill, if possible.

     This is the second accident within the month and
within the six years that we have been operatingp but
I am quite sure that neither were due to any careless-
ness on the part of our staff or to any lack of safe-
guards around the plant.   It must be, as has been saidt
that these things come not as single spies.

                             Yours very truly,

                             (Signed) Perry West,

University of Kentucky
Dean of Women' s Office

Memorandum to Mr. Frank Peterson, Comptroller
From KIMrs. Sarah B. Holmes, Acting Dean of Women
Ooncorning firs. S. F. Bowsher and 1iiss Elizabeth Taylor

     As we have no clear cut policy of caring for accidents on
the campus of the University of Kxentucky, it -las been hard for
me to make a definite recommendation regarding the request
of Mrs. S. F. Bowsher that her surgeon's bill of 138 be paid
by the University of Kentuckya   However, I have taken the
following facts into consideration!

     l. Any consideration given Mrse Bowsher should also be
extended to Miss Elizabeth Taylor.

     20 Both women were injured while on routine duty in
the residence halls for women.

     30 The University of Kentucky, because of oversight or
negligence in protecting a deep excavation, was a contribut-
ing factor in the accident.   This deep excavationwas evi-
di;tly made at the time the new heating plant was installed
_-uard rails were never placed around the excavation.

     4. Mrs. Bowsher was off duty from December 26 to Feb-
ruary 14 during which time she was in the hospital or con-
valescing at home.   She has been able to be on part-time
duty only from February 14 to April 4.

     5. Mrs. Bowrsherts salary has been paid in full from
December 26 to April 4, regardless of number of hours on du-
ty. Under this arrangement she has received in all ;227M50.

     6. Miss Taylor has been on duty each day since the ac-
c4 dent occurred except at such time as it has been necessary
for her to be in the doctor's or nurse's office for treat.

     7. Miss Taylorls actual dixpenses have been smrall bed
cause of a former connection with the Good Samaritan Hos-
pital.   Dr. Brown's and the X-Ray bills have been nominal.
1, she had paid the usual fees, she would have incurred
doctor and hospital bills of several hundred dollars.

     8. Neither woman has completely recovered her health.
Both are still under the care of physicians.


         In view of the above facts, I am recomnmending that Mrs.
       c.  Bowsherts surgeon's bill of $138 be paid in full and
    teat Mviss Taylor be reimbursed $30Q00 to care for the cost
    ofk Onedicine, bandages$ heat pads, etc.

                                           Sarah B. Holmes

           6. The Board f'elt that the question involved in
              all  four injuries was somewhat of a similar
              nature and after discussing the facts relating
              to each injury at length the Executive Committee
              passed the following resolution:

                    F__OLVED that the medical and x-ray charges
               of George 1.1cCray in the amount of 56.50; trLe op.
               erating room fee and hospital service of Frederick
               Kaye amounting to 11.5O; examination, operation
               and anesthetic fee of Mrs. S. F. Bowsher in the
               amount Of $138OO, and the cost of medicine1
               bandages, heat pads, etc., incurred by Miss
               Elizabeth Taylor in the amount of $30.00 be paid
               from the College Collection Account, and

                    BH IT FURTHER RESOLVED that it is express-
               ly understood that action in these cases is with-
               out commitment as to future action of the Board
               of Trustees on requests for payment of medical
               bills or other bills for empense incurred in
               cases of injury to employees, and that the Board
               does not establish a precedQnt and does not
               admit negligence or liability by paying such
               medical and. hospital claims.
