Emergency Room at Maimonides Medical Center

With emergency room care expected to increase under the Affordable Care Act, how are New York's emergency care units performing? E.R. doctor Joshua Moskovitz, who teaches emergency medicine and public health at Hofstra Northshore LIJ School of Medicine, discusses a new report card that grades the quality of emergency room services around the country. He explains how he helped develop the report card as a member of the American College of Emergency Physicians Task Force, how the group evaluates emergency care, and why they gave New York a C.
