Man Found Dead in ER After Waiting 8 Hours for Doctor

He walked in asking to be treated for a rash — but more than eight hours later, John Verrier was found dead in his chair in the crowded ER waiting room, hospital officials concede.


He died because [there’s] not enough staff to take care of the number of patients we see each day. We need more staff.

AS I recall most hospitals in the US are privately owned. So how does this make it the government's fault? Kind of poor business practice to kill your customers unless you run a funeral home.

If it's a hospital approved by BHOcare then it is the gubmint's fault.

Sorry Wally. Obamacare pays for private insurance who pays the private hospital.

No it is the hospital administration's fault. Expect a wrongful death suit.
TB is probably already there signing up the relatives.

Ya, so what? BHOcare didn't build this system. Mean nasty conservatives like you did.

If I get a rash or a sniffle, I either call my doc's office or I head for the clinic my doc is in. ERs are for emergencies and rashes usually aren't emergencies. Perhaps this fella had more symptoms? Perhaps the staff at the hospital didn't think a rash was a life-threatening emergency?
One of the reasons why Canada has a problem in healthcare services is because of pinheads that go to the ER for any little excuse that annoys them. It's why I'm in favor of a stiff user fee.

As someone who works in a hospital with ER services...

So much this.
