Gill Wants Modification In Rules Requiring Emergency Room Treatment


The emergency room doctor who’s running for Congress in the 13th District is visiting small critical-care hospitals around his district this week.  Democrat David Gill says those hospitals… serving areas like Litchfield, Hillsboro and Pana… would be devastating by Republican plans to shrink Medicare spending.

Gill says Medicare is a successful, efficient program that should be expanded to include even more people… creating a “public option” that he says would be better than President Obama’s health care reform plan. 

 

Gill also wants to ease some regulations on hospitals… he’s calling for an easing of the rule that requires hospitals to treat everyone who comes into the emergency room.  Gill says doctors should be able to use their triage skills to decide when a patient can be sent home without receiving costly treatment.

 

He appeared live Monday on 970 WMAY's Jim Leach Show.
