A Real Emergency by Jack Lessenberry's Essays and Interviews

Jack writes: "Last month, the National Academy of Science's Institute of Medicine released a study whose name said it all: Hospital-Based Emergency Care: At a Breaking Point. The document concluded that our nation’s emergency care system is "overburdened, underfunded, and highly fragmented." He continues: "I expected to be worried when I began to read portions of the new report on the crisis in emergency medical care in this country.

Instead, I ended up deeply frightened. There, in black and white, sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, was proof that our system is headed for collapse."

Jack Lessenberry interviewed Dr. William Barson, Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at U of M Medical School and a member of the institute. Listen to Interview: William Barsan - 7/7/06
