Whoever put the canned laughter in the first two episodes of "STAT," the new ABC sitcom, should have his or her hearing checked. The laugh track slobbers all over the actors' lines, getting in the way of what might be pretty funny stuff -- if we could hear it.Outside of that large lapse of sensibility and judgment, the latest comedy from Danny Arnold, the creator of "Barney Miller," is both sweet and irreverent, an Arnold trademark.The series -- about life in the emergency room of a big city hospital -- premieres at 9:30 tonight on WJZ-TV (Channel 13)

Visit a typical emergency room, and you are likely to be greeted by a hospital worker with a tall stack of registration papers and a long waiting list. The $13.4 million emergency department that opens today at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center seeks to change all that with a single innovation: the "quick-look nurse." From a desk similar to a hotel concierge's - right down to the oversized vase of flowers - the nurse will ask only patients' name, date of birth and reason for visiting before shepherding them off to a patient-care room for full registration and the medical evaluation.

In an ideal health care system, patients with non urgent complaints would not visit urgent centers. Yet the premise of the June 18th article "Hospitals try to improve emergency wait times" is that to solve our over-crowding problem in emergency rooms we need to streamline the care. But this solution addresses only the symptom and not the underlying disorder: too many patients with non-urgent illness seek care in urgent centers. Inappropriate use of the emergency room is a public health emergency.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- The emergency room attendants who fell ill from so-called mystery fumes in February while treating a dying cancer patient probably succumbed to mass hysteria, California's Department of Health Services concluded in a report released yesterday.It is also plausible, state officials said, that a few hospital staff members were exposed to something that made them ill and that others reacted "to the stressful situation." But if there was an exposure to something, its identity remains unknown, said Dr. Ana Maria Osorio, chief of the health department's Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control and co-author of the report.

A Baltimore Circuit Court jury found yesterday that two emergency room doctors at Union Memorial Hospital committed malpractice that led to the death of a Baltimore man and must pay $1.05 million in damages to his family. After listening to two weeks of testimony and then deliberating for two hours, the jury decided Dr. Drory Tendler and Dr. Christopher Price should have diagnosed a blood clot in the lungs of Christian J. Walch, 76. Instead, they told him he had pneumonia when he visited the emergency room in December 1999.
