A hospital emergency department may not seem the most likely
place to perform a clinical trial. Loud, stressful and chaotic,
the American emergency room offers a tried-and-true backdrop for
television and motion picture productions but is not typically

Medi-Cal cuts.” (Smith, Sacramento Bee 11/30/11)
