Dialysis patients at Atlanta-based Grady band together to face new deadline on care

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 3, 2010

Several dialysis patients at Atlanta-based Grady Memorial Hospital gathered Feb. 2 and discussed the hospital's new deadline that could end their care. Feb. 2 was supposed to be the deadline on care for these patients, but Grady officials presented a new deadline with new consequences. In a letter sent in late January to patients, Grady told them that the hospital will continue their care only if the patients show that they are working to find long-term care elsewhere. In order to continue the care, the patients must contact the hospital by Feb. 12 and show that such plans are in the works, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
