Smart Car Seeks Questionable Med Help at Slope’s Methodist

February 18th, 2009 · 3 Comments

If this car is so “smart” why is it going to Methodist Hospital in Park Slope? It wouldn’t be going to the Emergency Room from Hell, would it? God, that would be pretty stupid. Stupid Car. But smarter than going to LICH, we suppose. On another topic, we know Methodist met with Park Slope Parents about the shitty care people were alleging they were giving out in their Emergency Room, but did they ever set up a meeting with the community at large they serve? Uh, we don’t think so. We apologize if we missed something and will clear up the misunderstanding right away, but Methodist appears to have totally dismissed the concerns of average Park Slope residents while toadying to a local interest group. But, it’s possible we missed the general community meeting it would seem they would have been morally obligated to hold and surely they understand that there’s a bigger community out there they serve from which they make hundreds of millions of dollars every year, often via taxpayer subsidy. Darn. We can’t even do a stupid Smart Car post without bitterly bloviating into Cyberspace.

    Your post is an insult to the hundreds of good, competent, and caring people who work at Methodist. Certainly, there have been mistakes and bad nights in the ER, but I challenge you to find one single ER in the city that doesn’t have horror stories from a horrible evening. Sure, the corporate running of Methodist leaves a lot to be desired, but please, don’t shit on the hard work and genuine care that goes on at Methodist every single day, 24 hours a day.
