RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving the adjustment of rates paid under Forensic Pathologist Services Agreements.
BACKGROUND
The contract provides for payment for Services as follows:

Doctor shall be paid:

$ 900 per day (includes the performance ofone autopsy or postmortem examination of any type).
$ 900 for each additional complete autopsy performed.
$ 800 for each additional partial autopsy performed.
$ 600 for external examination performed.
DISCUSSION

The Medical Examiner is having difficulty in getting someone to cover the office in his absence.  The assistant M.E. is currently on limited duty so the services of a contract M.E. is needed periodically.  Dr. Fernandez has assured me they will not exceed the $25,000 budgeted for these service, even though the recommended rates for service will increase by $300.00 for each autopsy.
