Services, beds could be cut to meet $212M shortfall
You lost you home, your job, your career, your insurance, and oh by the way the safety net you could go for medical care is gone. This is what is happening in Louisiana. Our governor is cutting health care, cutting the Charity Hospital system, refusing to open Charity Hospital New Orleans because she will save 200 million by abandoning the hospital and seeing patients in tents, and aboval she is going to open the University Hospital which DID GET WATER IN THE PATIENT CARE AREA DURING KATRINA.
Dont worry it the private hospitals are going to take up the slack, even though they themselves are stuggling from lack of beds and funding.
WHERE IS THE LEADERSHIP. GOVERNOR BLANCO YOU RAN SAYING BOBBY JINDAL WOULD CLOSE THE CHARITY HOSPITAL SYSTEM, WELL WE ALL KNOW WHAT YOU DID WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO SAVE THE HOSPITALS IN THEIR HOUR OF NEED. YOUR BOND COMMISSION FUNDED A HORSE BARN AND REMODELED THE 6TH FLOOR OF YOUR OFFICES.
Heaven forbid Governor a major health crisis occurs, when the rest of the nation is preparing for bird flu your cutting the one tool at your disposal to respond to the people's needs. Unlike Katrina you have been warned and the voter will not be forgiving of if our people are denied emergency resources again.
