She collapsed next to the best stroke center.
Her ambulance was turned away.
It was policy.
While this was in Milwaukee, I have been sounding the alarm in Dothan-Houston County for a couple of years. This cost me all of the advertising at Southheast Health AKA Southeast Alabama Medical Center. Advertisers have been threatened by members of the Board of Directors of Southeast Health AKA SAMC.
I have been ignored by Richard Otto Sutton ( Rick Sutton ), Chief Executive Officer and his cronies. Sutton is to much of a coward to meet with me and answer questions and feels it is none of the business of the public what goes on at Southeast Health AKA SAMC. And the majority of the Board of Directors are scared of Sutton.
But if the man is to much of a coward to meet and answer questions from someone with a backbone ( Rickey Stokes ) instead of cowards who are afraid of their status in life, position in life, or Sutton will do to them what he did to me and stop his advertising.

MILWAUKEE – As she got ready to work the breakfast shift at the Medical College of Wisconsin cafeteria, Tiffany Tate didn’t feel well.
Tate, 37, was a fixture on the cafeteria’s “hot line,” where she worked behind a steaming grill. She knew the names of many workers and their kids, always sharing smiles and small talk.
With a teenager and 8-month-old at home, recent months had been an exhausting blitz for Tate. That morning, she told some of the other kitchen workers she had a headache and felt weak. She figured it was because of a new medication for her back pain.
Shortly after 8 a.m., as Tate and a group of workers came off a break, she felt worse. Tate asked for a piece of bread with honey. A co-worker hustled to get it. She returned to find Tate leaning against a counter, supporting herself with one hand. The left side of Tate’s face drooped; she was slurring her words.
No uniform set of rules governs how or when ambulance diversion is used by America’s hospitals.
No single agency tracks the practice, or measures how frequently hospital doors are closed. No one tracks what happens to the patients who have their treatment delayed.
