I was greatly disappointed by Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts' response to the tragedy at Good Samaritan Hospital ( "After teen's death, police restrict response to hospital emergencies," May 21). I had hoped that we had turned a new page in the leadership of the Baltimore police, but perhaps I am mistaken. The hospital staff did not Tase the patient; a Baltimore City police officer did. If the police do not know how to assist hospitals with dangerous patients then additional training is needed.

Reader Kayris wrote: "I found out today that my 2-year-old will most likely need eye surgery and an MRI before that. Any suggestions for making it easier for a child so young, and any suggestions to get ME through having to see my child under general anesthesia?" I sent her question to Dr. Michael Crocetti, director of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He wrote back some thoughts: "Having surgery or a medical procedure that requires sedation can be scary and very anxiety-provoking for the child and parents," he wrote.

George King seemed to always be hungry, occasionally pestering the staff at his group foster home for chicken or brownies. If someone was being picked on, he would stand up for them, his loved ones recalled. Though he had made some missteps in life, he had recently joined a church, enrolled in community college and seemed to be getting on the right path. As King was remembered at his funeral Saturday, the circumstances of his death - after being shocked with a Taser during a struggle with Baltimore police and security staff at Good Samaritan Hospital - were barely mentioned.

Howard County General Hospital began as a vision 40 years ago. As we celebrate the hospital's 40th anniversary year and its official "birthday" of July 9, I reflect on how HCGH has been caring for generations of families in our community for four decades and I'm proud to have been a part of the HCGH team through times of significant change and growth. HCGH has grown up with this community and the people who call Howard County home. We've been right by the sides of so many people - through emergency department visits, the births of children and grandchildren, through health crises and amazing recoveries.
