Fort Worth, TX, hospital no longer diverting trauma cases
Fort Worth Star-Telegram, June 6, 2008
After months of turning away some emergency patients with brain and spine injuries because of a shortage of neurosurgeons, Harris Methodist Fort Worth (TX) hospital has returned to a full schedule of trauma care. Hospital administrators and doctors reached an agreement that ensures that a neurosurgeon is available around-the-clock every day. The surgeons will provide full coverage until September, but it remains to be seen whether the solution will become permanent.
