Trapped in a waiting game at Texas’ JPS
Many in Tarrant County, TX, lack health insurance. As a result, they come to the taxpayer-supported Tarrant County Hospital District for help that other local healthcare facilities can't or won't provide. But they often encounter barriers such as unbearable delays, red tape, bungling and jammed facilities. Bottlenecks permeate the health network at every level, and patients often wait weeks to get a doctor's appointment and months for some specialists. When appointment time finally arrives, patients usually wait for hours waiting to see the doctor.
