My name is Homero Villarreal. I am the publisher of El Defenzor Magazine and South Side Defender. I am writing to ask for commentary on the following:
1) The alleged wrongful discharge of Mr. George Sanchez from your ER on February 8, 2009.
2) What if anything is Spohn doing in response to allegations that the poor are being discharged unstable and there is a delay in Care?
3) Is all the above a violation of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act and have any incidences been reported to Medicare or JCAHO?
4) Has nurse Jackie Warrl or her boss Linda Synder been told to tone down how they speak to the poor?
5) Has Dr. Addison been reported to the Medical Board and does he remain in the emergency room? I shall be investigating these allegations and wanted to give you and Christus Spohn Memorial the opportunity to respond
