Hospital comments

To the editor:

I would like to interject two points that are possibly being overlooked:

1. Has anyone discussed how Obamacare is impacting Adirondack Medical Center or will impact it?

2. The 5-year-old girl may have needed more than a few stitches. Having worked in plastic surgery in a teaching hospital in New York, there could have been a need for microsurgery of muscle and deep tissue.

Finally, I agree that closing or cutting hours of the Lake Placid emergency room is a travesty. The agreement should be honored. Period.
