Quake victims overwhelm Chinese hospitals

Wall Street Journal (subscription required), May 29, 2008
Chinese hospitals already overwhelmed with the injured from the May 12 earthquake in Sichuan province now face homeless patients who won't leave. The quake has severely taxed China's medical resources, and many quake victims have been given free treatment. But some patients say hospitals are now pressuring them to leave or transfer elsewhere before they are fully treated, while hospital officials say healthy patients are taking up room needed for others.
