California's dwindling emergency rooms
Scores of California hospitals have shut down their emergency rooms or closed entirely in the last decade.
Emergency room physicians say the closures have led to long waits, diverted ambulances and, in the most extreme cases, patient deaths. The closures also mean that patients in need of emergency care may need to travel farther, delaying access to treatment.
