Ex-hospital patients file lawsuit over the status of healthcare in New Orleans

A group of former patients of New Orleans's shuttered Charity Hospital have filed a lawsuit claiming that medical care for the poor is still woefully inadequate in the city and asking for a return to the level of services the hospital provided before Hurricane Katrina. Before the storm, Charity Hospital provided nearly all healthcare for low-income residents, but did not reopen after the hurricane.
