Survey of doctors shows problems and improvements at Texas-based JPS
Doctors working at Texas-based JPS Health Network clinics are often forced to send patients to the emergency room to get them admitted. Necessary equipment and medical supplies are also missing, and JPS doctors still would not recommend family or friends to seek treatment at JPS facilities, according to a recently released survey of the physicians working for the taxpayer-supported public hospital system. But the physicians gave JPS' new administration high marks as doctors and hospital executives have formed teams in recent months to address the widespread deficiencies identified in the survey.
