Hospitalized with Asthma...returns home to 95 degrees

P.S. was hospitalized with severe asthma for three days. She was released from the hospital during the most recent heat wave. When she returned home, she discovered her air conditioning not working. Her doctor said she must be in an air conditioned enviornment or she would return to the hospital. The A/C company would not touch the unit without an up front payment. She telephoned JSS in tears, fearing a return to the hospital...or worse. JSS contacted the A/C company and negotiated payment. The unit was repaired and she avoided another hospital stay (and the costs).
