As Patients Struggle With Bills, Hospital Sues Thousands

michael barbaro

From The New York Times, I’m Michael Barbaro. This is “The Daily.”

Today: for decades hospitals could assume that patients with jobs and health insurance would pay their medical bills. Sarah Kliff on why that’s no longer the case and the aggressive new way that hospitals are forcing those patients to pay up.

It’s Monday, December 2.

Hi, Amanda.

NYC hospital resumes use of forklift to move bodies amid coronavirus

A Brooklyn hospital on Tuesday resumed its use of a forklift to move the dead bodies of coronavirus victims, just hours after the shocking practice was exposed on the front page of The Post.

The red forklift was pressed back into service shortly before 11 a.m., and by 1:30 p.m. had shuttled more than 15 corpses wrapped in white sheets from the loading dock of Brooklyn Hospital Center to a refrigerated trailer parked along Ashland Place in Fort Greene.

At several points, two bodies were carried side by side on the machine’s tines.

Passerby Lydia Ramirez, 32, watched in dismay as one body was lifted up and loaded into the trailer by workers wearing protective gear.

“It’s really sad and disturbing to see. At least put up a tarp or a tent, if for no other reason than for the dignity of the deceased’s family,” she said.

“No one should
