http://video.msnbc.msn.com/rock-center/48006879/#48006879 This is just sickening. I understand hopspitals are losing money, especially with the coverage (or lack thereof) some of us have, but demanding payment while patients are drugged up, in pain and/or waiting for emergency surgery? I'd feel the same way as the gentlemen that said "I didn't think they'd turn me away, but I thought if I didn't pay, what level of care was I going to get? Are their certain tiers based on whether you pay or not, and how much you pay?" It's a sad state of affairs when you feel you may not receive adequate care if you're unable to make a payment while in the midst of a life threatening situation.
