Q: I am very disturbed and upset about the slandering news about the Parkland emergency room. First of all, my mother worked there at the time and that patient went in for an unrelated issue. He did not have life-threatening complaints till he went back which randomly came about. I am insulted as well as I know the hard-working nursing and doctor staff are that the only publicity the media seeks is negative about parkland. It is a Level 1 trauma center and sees thousands of patients in one day in the ER alone. Why don't you all allow the public to see the hard work and wonderful care that Parkland Memorial Hospital is able to give, instead of someone trying to get publicity and money?
A: You are referring to a story by News 8 Investigates story. If you have new information that you would like to offer, we would be pleased to take a look. That said, it is one story and doesn’t indicate a total indictment on the part of WFAA regarding every physician, patient or support personnel who has every worked at Parkland. Clearly, some the area’s finest medical care in the area comes from within the walls of Parkland Memorial Hospital.
