« Father-Son Weekend Part 2 | Main | President Obama; If You Really Want To Reduce Healthcare Costs, Effectively Reform The Medical Malpractice Tort System: Part 2 »


My girlfriend is a first year ER resident. She recently did her cardiology rotation. She admitted the same homeless crack addict three times in one week because his chest hurt and his triponin was elevated. Those are symptoms of his crack smoking, not an MI. They had to admit three times before they could start telling the ER that they refused to admit him. The hospital was his hotel. He paid his bills with unspoken threats of malpractice claims, threats he didn't even know he was making.
