San Francisco health agency ready to OK cuts

San Francisco Chronicle, March 5, 2008
The San Francisco Health Commission has slashed its budget, and as a result nurses won't be making home visits to their homebound patients anymore. In addition, operating rooms at San Francisco General Hospital will be closed eight hours a day. Critics say the budget cuts contradict the city's initiative to provide universal healthcare to its residents because many uninsured people use the programs suffering because of the budget deficit.
