BC hospital refuses to treat man in hospital parking lot; told to call 911

Reported by the CBC. Ah, this makes me pretty irate. How in the name of all things good, clean and serene, can this happen? How could the folks at the hospital be so insensitive as to demand the adherence of policy (defunct policy at that) over dealing with a human?

AH! This makes me mad too... I had a horrible experience in the "emergency" room recently (and yes, I use those quotation marks intentionally - there seemed to be nothing "emergency" about it). I hate it when you walk into the emergency room and there's absolutely NO ONE in sight to help you with your medical difficulties... It was the first time voting NDP crossed my mind...
