FROM THE BOQ: BUSINESS, POLITICS AND ETHICS #2

Another question from Gregory Stock’s book is this:

If you ran a hospital, what policy would you set for dealing with emergency patients who arrive without health insurance or money?

I know from experience that emergency rooms in this country are inexcusably indifferent toward patients with or without health insurance or money. 

So if I ran a hospital, I would make damned sure that emergency patients would be treated immediately–payment details could be worked out later.
