Infected with incompetence

September 08, 2007

Re "Finding roles for workers at closed hospital," Sept. 2

This revealing article tells of a problem with less-than-satisfactory workers at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital. It points out the problem of where these people should be assigned now that the hospital is closed, in part because of their lack of competence. It is clear that there is a problem with the system and those who administer it. Moving incompetence will only bring more troubles to an already overburdened system and hasten the complete collapse of the Los Angeles County's healthcare system.

The county Board of Supervisors needs to face the reality of the situation. For too long the supervisors have tried to be politically correct; now that failure has come, they should not spread the infection.
