What a shame

Norfolk, VA

#1 Apr 7, 2010
This family didn't have to die - Health care in this country is getting worse. The nurses and doctors don't listen, the hear you talking but don't really listen to what you are saying. This man should have been admitted and treated not given a prescription and sent home. Anyone who says I am thinking about harming someone should automatically be admitted for observation and treatment. WE need a new awareness of mental health issues in our emergency rooms.
