Democrats warn about hospital capacity
Washington Post, May 6, 2008
House Democrats warned that hospitals in major U.S. cities would be overwhelmed if any of the cities were struck by a terrorist attack, and shortages of emergency room capacity and intensive care beds will grow worse if Bush administration Medicaid changes are implemented. More than half of 34 hospitals in five U.S. cities deemed at greatest risk of attack said they had no emergency room treatment space available to accept severely injured patients, according to a survey by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
