Chandler Crews sat on a bench outside of Sinai Hospital in Baltimore one recent day, put her feet on the ground and grinned. Sitting this way was impossible for the 20-year-old from Arkansas just a few years ago because she was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism in which limbs don't grow in proportion with the torso. With bowed legs and a 3-foot-10-inch stature, she said she was unable to do many such "normal" things. She couldn't drive the family car or go for much of a walk without back and joint pain or even wash her hands in most sinks.

The Northwest Baltimore hospital is going to give a $3,000 savings bond to the first baby born after the kick off of the game against the New England Patriots.

I followed with interest Andrea K. Walker's article concerning Sinai Hospital's incentive discharge program ( "Sinai's incentive discharge program raises questions," Aug. 30). However, I was dismayed by Maryland Nurses Association President Neysa Ernst's comment that hospitals need to do a better job of explaining the discharge process to patients so they understand why it may seem to take longer than it should if they don't realize nurses are waiting on such things as blood test results.

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore launched an incentive program this week to encourage nurses to discharge more patients by noon, prompting questions about patient safety. The program sets a goal for nursing units to discharge 20 percent of their patients by noon and offers the nurse on each unit with the most early discharges a $10 gift card. An executive with LifeBridge Health, which owns Sinai, said the goals were taken out of context. The hospital was responding to patient concerns that they wanted to leave the hospital sooner after procedures, said Debbie Hollenstein, LifeBridge vice president of marketing.
