Columbia-affiliated hospital only 4,000 echocardiograms behind
It may be summer, but hey, our Google alerts are still turned on.
• The Harlem Hospital Center, whose doctors are supervised by the Columbia Medical School, is hurrying to review almost 4,000 unread echocardiograms, which is more than a year-and-a-half’s worth. The hospital’s clinical director has been fired for the screwup, but, uh, yikes.
• Fun fact: The Columbia board of trustees spent over $100,000 to lobby Washington last year. NYU spent over $500,000.
• Bill O’Reilly, a big fan of Columbia University, told TC professor Marc Lamont Hill that he looked like a cocaine dealer. We’d say that’s pretty gross and racist, but maybe we’ve been indoctrinated by liberalism or something.
• Newsweek’s new site has a thingie on the side called “The Spectrum.” Hey, that’s our name!
