I think that this family needs to take a realilty pill. I dont mean any disrespect but there son was a drunk and drug addict. I work in the hospital and saw him in the ER several times so drunk that he couldnt walk, get over it and face the facts that he was a looser. Go ahead and sue the state as this was there fault but it wasn't. Oh if by chance you do get a little money from the state go ahead and buy yourself something nice and you can thank the taxpayers everytime you look at what you bought yourself and when you look at what you buy remember that your son was doing what he knew what to do best and that was to drink and smoke dope.

You folks need to get a life. I dont mean any disrespect but your son was a drunk and drug addict. I work in the ER and saw him many times so drunk and drugged up he couldnt walk. Go ahead and sue the state and if get a little money then you can thank the taxpayers for it. I can't help it that your son fell off of this bridge but that is life and it wasn't anyone fault but his.

This comment contains blatantly egregious violations of privacy law and confidentality ethics for medical professionals. Freedom of speech is one thing, revealing that an individual visited the ER and for what, which you learned from your employment in that ER, is illegal. I have forwarded your comment to the administration of all the hospitals in the Aspen area for their consideration in case you meant AVH or VVH. Mr. Aldrich only lived in Snowmass Village for 3 weeks prior to his death, so you may mean an out-of-state hospital. You should be fired regardless but you don't sound like a medical professional so you are probably impersonating. Frankly, you sound like a drunk who smokes pot...
