Jackson doctors complain about ER

The Miami Herald, October 9, 2012

Doctors in Jackson Memorial's emergency room say their work is hindered by a hugely dysfunctional system that has trouble processing blood samples, getting basic diagnostic imaging and finding hospital beds for patients. Public documents requested by The Miami Herald revealed that the doctors had plenty of complaints when a manager asked them what they would like to see changed in the ER. The issue is crucial because Jackson Health System executives now are studying bids from nine outside companies about taking over doctors' services in the emergency rooms—a step that has already brought vehement objections from a half-dozen county commissioners and protests from leaders of women's groups who fear the move will hurt the rape treatment center at the hospital.
