Dr. Evelyn Li is having a busy year. The Fremont cardiologist is running for the Washington Hospital Board of Directors and promoting a movie released earlier this year that accuses Washington Hospital (and others) of releasing patients who are too sick to go home and retaliating against doctors who stand up to hospital administration.
The hospital says the movie is bunch of bunk.
The Argus was was the only local mainstream paper to write about her movie, and the aftermath, but today Li held a press conference in Oakland with eight patients (not all from Washington) who say they received poor treatment from hospitals.
Li said that Channel 2, CNN and a major Bay Area paper were all there. The Argus was not, nor were our sister papers. I’ll be tuning in tonight and reading tomorrow to see if anything came of it.
