The mother of a highly ranked U.S. gymnast said her daughter is in a coma not because of a spinal injury suffered at a meet in Japan, but because of irresponsibility on the part of a Tokyo hospital, which she said caused an accidental asphyxiation. Otilia Gomez said her daughter, Julissa, the country's 13th-ranked gymnast, went into a coma 15 days after first entering Tokyo University Hospital to be treated for a broken neck.

It's a daily occurrence in the radiology department at Georgetown University Hospital, says Susan Ascher, director of abdominal imaging: An obese patient with belly pain on the lower right side is sent for an ultrasound. The emergency room doctor and radiologist suspect appendicitis, a diagnosis the scan could confirm. But when the radiologist moves the transducer around on the patient's abdomen, all that's visible, in Ascher's words, is "a snowstorm."
Diabetic and disabled, 51-year-old Willie King seems an unlikely figurehead for a national uprising over patients' rights. Two months ago, the retired heavy-equipment operator checked into University Community Hospital here to have his diseased right leg amputated. A doctor cut off his left leg instead. "When I came to and discovered I lost my good one, it was a shock, a real shock," King said in a press conference three weeks after the Feb. 20 operation.
