Groups: Carolinas HealthCare System Must Stop Suing Patients!

[1]Read all about it [2] in the Charlotte Observer today.  In response to the many outrageous hospital behaviors uncovered by the CO’s and Raleigh News and Observer’s Prognosis: Profits series [3], the NAACP, the N.C. Justice Center, Action NC, the N.C. AFL-CIO, the Jesus Ministry, and the Black Women’s Caucus issued a statement yesterday [4] calling on Carolinas HealthCare System to remove liens it has on people’s houses – like Ms. Joyce Jones’ small house [5] – and join other major hospitals in the state that have ended the practice of suing patients.  Let’s hope $4.2 million-man Carolinas CEO Michael Tarwater is listening to Reverend Barber’s words from yesterday:

“The Bible says we’re not supposed to burden the poor and the sick and the afflicted. We’re supposed to lift them and help them and heal them. (Carolinas HealthCare) is a group with money hounding people who are just trying to make it.”
