Description

"San Francisco General Hospital was once a model for quality public health care. Now doctors and nurses who keep the hospital running warn that it's on the verge of collapse." Due to federal and state cuts, an increase in uninsured patients, lack of staff and "pressures brought on by managed care", the city's busiest hospital has began to downfall. Tali Woodward reports more on why the "Emergency Department is overburned."
