Surgeon: Budget cuts make UofL Hospital unsafe - Andrew Wolfson, The Courier-Journal

A leading University of Louisville surgeon says that staffing cuts by KentuckyOne Health at U of L Hospital have rendered it “unsafe” for the care of seriously ill and injured patients. In an email to the university’s top health officials, Dr. J. David Richardson, vice chair of surgery and the current president of the American College of Surgeons, said the public hospital has “never been worse in the 34 years that I have been heavily involved with it.” “Please understand this is not the complaining of a senior surgeon but a major patient safety issue!” Richardson said in the June 7 email, a copy of which was provided by another physician to The Courier-Journal. http://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/local/2016/06/08/surgeon-cuts-make-u-l-hospital-unsafe/85603994/
