How do you settle when you can't determine damage? This is insane.
Ya I agree... so the kid starts growing an extra testicle and we should get at least another 3 million for that right?

because the likes of Raven will be the norm. Don't forget to sign your litigation waiver, and mediation agreement. Standard Obama(D) care paperwork.

Doug Shaw is an incompetent CEO who is a trapped man. I agree with SNaFU, all he cares about is himself and his shareholders. This county will be better off when MRCH is sold to a new owner. More investigation reporting should be done at that hospital before another patient suffers. They recently lost the very effective pain management team to St. Joes for good reason. The leadership is as sick as the patients they supposely care for.

Impossible to get health care on the north coast because we have no doctors that are worth anything. Not having quality schools in the area keeps professionals away and we have sub standard humboldt slackers frying people with x-rays.
Just another example of the shallow labor pool this area has and why it will never amount to anything but something half a*sed- it's just the north coast culture.
Until the area can provide a healthy place to raise children there will be nothing of value here, only second rate at best.

I have suffered radiation dose - the affects are misery - this poor child is of course DNA damaged if I am. YOU had better be very careful if you have a CAT scan - too many hospitals cover it up without caring about their patients. Stick your head in a sanner and get the same dose as me before you speak.
