  1. God i pray i never have to be in the hospital in nevada.

  2. It's past time to lobby the Cleveland Clinic for a full fledged Hospital. They have moved into Florida - why not Nevada. Give them free land or whatever is needed. Add and full fledged Med School to UNLV. Transparency reporting for All infections, missed diagnosis, errors, etc... Most of these Wall Street Hospitals need to be wiped from the face of the Earth. The rush to profits is what causes these problems and Lawsuits with attorneys roaming the halls will help put some fear into these incompetent hospitals.
