Nearly 10,000 people in West Baltimore are diagnosed each year with new cases of diabetes, hypertension and other treatable, chronic health conditions — enough to fill 24 jumbo jets. These illnesses will kill many of them and complications will disable others who may end up in wheelchairs or have limbs amputated because they didn't get the proper medical care. This is the evidence the West Baltimore Primary Care Access Collaborative, a coalition of 16 hospitals and nonprofit organizations, gave state health officials as they sought to join a state program that provides financial incentives in an effort to curb health disparities in the state through the creation of special zones.

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)

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.

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.

Howard County General Hospital will add a 10-bed mental health unit to its emergency room that will ease admission of involuntary psychiatric patients and improve emergency operations, hospital officials confirmed this week. The $775,000 project is scheduled to begin next week and be completed by January, said Beth Plavner, the hospital's construction consultant. It will be an addition of almost 2,200 square feet and will have three locked rooms and seven cubicles -- expanding the emergency room from 36 adult beds to 46. The unit would be staffed with a nurse and a hospital security guard 24 hours a day, according to Debbie Fleischmann, administrative director of the Emergency Department.
