Carl Edgell doesn't enjoy going to the hospital. But he doesn't want to hurt anyone, either. The 44-year-old homeless man has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. At times when he has felt that he has reached a breaking point, he has taken himself to a local emergency room. Each time, he says, the experience has been different.

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)

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.

Walch, 76. Instead, they told him he had pneumonia when he visited the emergency room in December 1999.

It was like my neighborhood's version of the Hollywood sign: tall, prestigious and distant, despite being just blocks away. This was the '80s, years before large sections of Baltimore's Middle East were seized under eminent domain and leveled after being scouted as the setting for a biotechnology park.
