'The Waiting Room' is still at the Grand Lake Theater. So many of these 'so-called patients' are at Merritt, Alta Bates, Kaiser and Highland, that they try to 'transfer' them just to get 'rid of them'. Nightmare conditions which were preventable, with people who have no money no family to care for them, and 'entitlement' mentality.

Kaiser started taking Medi-Cal in the Summer of 2011!!
