The sprawling Charity Hospital, hard by the Berlin Wall, is the showplace of East German medicine, and it is in serious trouble. Tens of thousands of young East Germans have fled to the West, and this has left the hospital short of doctors and, just as important, nurses. "We have problems," Dr. Siegbert Thomas, the administrative director, admitted in a guarded interview, "and we are very much involved in finding solutions."

Some premature babies born at a hospital in former East Germany were drowned and officially listed as "abortions," a newsmagazine reported Saturday. According to Der Spiegel, the drownings were carried out in the city of Erfurt, where the hospital director was quoted as saying he assumed it was standard practice nationwide because of the lack of medical equipment to keep the small babies alive. The victims were babies weighing less than 2.2 pounds.
