Excerpt:

New York City’s Bellevue Hospital and its continuing to be 700 clients have struggled along in the aftermath of Sandy– with failing power, partially lighted halls, no computers, making it tough to locate clients within the facility, hospital staff informed ABC News today. When Sandy struck the New York area Monday night, Bellevue practically lost its generators. At least one got maintained just in time to stave off an evacuation, but it’s been a battle to keep the hospital going. Now an evacuation is anticipated — making Bellevue the second of the city’s public %%PRO11%%s to be removed line because of perilous and failing conditions that could possibly endanger patient wellness. “It’s Katrina-esque in there,” one registered nurse informed ABC News. Bellevue is perhaps the very best known of the 11 %%PRO11%%s that comprise New York City’s public hospital system.
