Officials release a report detailing overcrowding problems at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital

New York officials recently released a report detailing overcrowding problems at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s emergency room — one of New York City’s busiest, according to an article on the CBS website.

Federal healthcare regulators said 5 percent of the hospital’s ER patients leave before they’re seen by a medical professional — compared with the national average of 2 percent.

Rodriguez said he hopes the hospital will use the report to improve services and community relations.
