What won't they do next ?..
so Granny is waiting for her maker on Brookhaven Hospice care with terminal cancer...
Turns out after two years, she doesn't have terminal cancer..
She has NO cancer at all...
But she is now addicted to morphine, and husband left her.

Hospital response: We didn't dew it. It's her lawyers fault.

When I started taking all the drugs, I went out of my mind," Jimenez said. "They gave me a lot of morphine. I couldn't remember who I was."

Last May the family took her for tests at Stony Brook.

"They looked at Brookhaven's pictures and couldn't see any cancer either," Jimenez's daughter Brunelda Morua said.

Heard Virginia pulling her usual BS with unions again. Engineering in talks for voting the union on board. Virginia and Directors bringing engineering personnel into private meetings to insinuate they may lose their pension plans, jobs, ETc Etc.. the typical SCARE tactics used by this women for years. Hope they bring her up on charges for interference and threats. This Administartion MUST BE STOPPED!!!!!!!!!! No raises for over a year crying poverty, NOW all of a sudden muti million dollar projects underway??

Oh that's BS. Stony Brook is 3 miles away!
Stony Brook is the only tertiary care center around.
You DO NOT bring a pt. to Brookhaven for an emergency! You bring emergent patients to Stony Brook- period.
You bring broken toes broken arms to Brookhaven (maybe)
