Description

Dateline NBC investigates problems with Oklahoma's emergency system. The story focused on Robert Meier, who was in a car accident and rushed to a regional hospital which was not equipped for the surgery he needed. According to Federal transfer laws, better-equipped hospitals must accept patients in need of services if they have the "capacity and capability" to treat the patients. But surgeons on call for five of the largest hospitals in Oklahoma City refused to take Mr. Meier. (March 17, 1996)
