Waiting for Health Care in Oakland, Calif.

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Uninsured Highland Hospital patient Andrew McGinness talks about health care reform and the dental surgery he needs in "The Waiting Room."

As health care reform debates move from the House floor to the back rooms of the Senate, we move our debate to a hospital in Oakland, Calif. Peter Nicks tells us about his project "The Waiting Room," which follows the life and times of patients and staff at a county hospital there, where many patients are uninsured and seek care with no way to pay their bills.
