Quotes

"This is a detriment for any hospital, financially," Hatiras said. "We spend many hours training, writing policies, and, God forgive, we get a real or suspected case, and there is going to be that segment of the population who is very scared to come near any area with a suspected case. I am really worried about that with patients coming for X-rays, or elected surgery procedures. It is a real consideration."
"It was done in the best interest of improving the town's payroll, benefits and overall human resources" he said
