The Drama of General Hospital

I have a vague memory of the soap opera General Hospital and the drama that went on with the doctors and nurses. I was at Los Angeles County Medical Center this morning, placing a great new volunteer with their Auxiliary, CARES (www.lacusc.org/cares/default.aspx).  While I hope there’s not so much drama with the staff, patients go through incredible suffering every day. Many of the patients are low-income, so can’t afford child care when they have appointments; CARES provides a pre-school so that patients, whether regular patients with on-going treatment, or one-time patients can leave their kids in a nurturing, educational setting. The JRP volunteer will help CARES upgrade their financial policies and procedures, enabling them to expand funding and programs. Thanks to JRP volunteer Trip for his time and expertise, and congrats to CARES for helping sick people focus on getting healthy.
