Subject: [DCHAS-L] Undergraduate Accident

I am chocked. In Denmark this could not happen, because emergency
treatment is free for everybody, and if a physician refuses to help a
sick person, he would loose his authorization as a physician. Acute
health assistance should never be a matter of money, neither in the US.

The only responsible for US universities would be to cover health
insurance for all their students, guests and employees, when they are
present at campus, and e.g. an accident happens. A university is like
other workplaces responsible for all what happens at their premises.

We have just been witness to a terrible sad shooting episode at Virginia
Tech. I sincerely hope for the physical and psychological wounded
students, that their hospital treatments are covered by their university
or State.

Yours truly,
