Imagine the scene: Sick people, some of them naked and bound by leather arm straps, lying on gurneys, unattended for hours in the hallways of a public hospital.

George Deukmejian to approve millions of dollars in emergency funding for the county's shrinking trauma care network. Chief Administrative Officer Richard B.
