Great article. Well done!
I don't mean to say that Chidi's commentary is without value, but I do think that the author of this post would have done better to research the topic, possibly incorporate some other points of view (along with Chidi's), and develop a piece that addresses some of the larger issues at hand.
leedart, to clarify, are you saying that your girlfriend died of appendicitis in the Grady ER?
What was the goal of this post?
If you want to do a story on Grady then do some research. Posting one person's anecdotal generalizations is lazy and inaccurate.
Waiting for over 24 hours at the Grady ER? That's called triage. If his mother's condition was life-threatening (an actual emergency), she would have been seen immediately. It sounds to me like he would have been better off scheduling an appointment with her primary care physician.
