Gunman Kills Doctor and Himself in Bronx Hospital Shooting; 6 Others Hurt

A disgruntled doctor armed with an AR-15 rifle and wearing a lab coat went on a rampage on Friday in the Bronx hospital where he had worked, killing a female doctor and wounding six other people — five of them seriously — before setting himself on fire and shooting himself in the head, the authorities said.The furious attack by the doctor — identified by the police as Henry Bello, 45 — sent workers at the hospital, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, diving behind desks and doors as gunshots and smoke filled the hallways of a place devoted to healing. Witnesses described medical workers’ ripping a fire hose from the wall to use as a tourniquet on one victim’s leg, while others recalled the horrific sight of the gunman, his torso aflame, running down a hallway.Dr. Bello had a troubled past, having worked at the hospital for about six months before quitting after being accused of sexual harassment, officials said. And years earlier, he was arrested and charged with sexual abuse after assaulting a woman in Manhattan.The attack appeared to be the type of mass shooting by a lone gunman that has struck communities around the United States.PhotoHenry Bello“He’s shooting! He’s shooting!” one woman yelled in the frantic initial moments of the afternoon assault, as recounted by a mother in the pediatric emergency room who had cowered with her five children, ages 1 to 10.Some believed that the death toll would have been far higher had the shooting occurred anywhere but where it did — a hospital filled with state-of-the-art medical equipment, and with doctors and nurses who rushed to victims and performed triage where they fell, in staircases and hallways, even as the gunman was still at large.“The situation unfolded in the middle of a place that people associate with care and comfort,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters outside the hospital, on the Grand Concourse in the Claremont Village neighborhood. The gunman acted alone, Mr. de Blasio said, adding that it appeared to be a workplace dispute that ended when the gunman committed suicide — “but not before having done horrible damage,” the mayor said.The police did not identify the victim, other than as a woman and a doctor. The five seriously injured patients were “fighting for their lives,” said the police commissioner, James P. […]

Economic Scene: When Cutting Access to Health Care, There’s a Price to Pay

And the American deficit has been getting worse. “Each year, other high-income countries are improving their health at a much faster rate than the United States, and the United States currently ranks lowest on a variety of health measures,” the report by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council noted.Continue reading the main storyI bring this up, senators, because you are considering whether to drive a stake through the Affordable Care Act, cutting access to care for millions of mostly poorer, sicker and older Americans.Of course, the dismal health situation is not all the fault of the health care system — which, until the passage of the Affordable Care Act, was the only one in the developed world that routinely barred access or limited care for millions of people of modest means.That is because violence accounts for a large share of Americans’ excessive mortality, and accidents take a disproportionate toll. Nor is the health care system entirely to blame for the nation’s elevated obesity rate — a leading cause of problems like diabetes.What’s more, the United States’ higher tolerance of poverty undoubtedly contributes to higher rates of sickness and death. Americans at all socioeconomic levels are less healthy than people in some other rich countries. But the disparity is greatest among low-income groups.Still, senators, you are not off the hook. Limited access to health care may not entirely account for the poor health and the early deaths of so many of your fellow Americans. But it accounts for a good chunk.A study about equity in access to health care for 21 countries in 2000 revealed that the United States had the highest degree of inequity in doctor use, even higher than Mexico — which is both poorer and generally more inequitable.Photoreported that health insurance improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, and reduces death rates from breast cancer and trauma.” data-mediaviewer-credit=”Whitten Sabbatini for The New York Times” itemprop=”url” itemid=”https://static01.nyt.com/images/2017/06/28/business/28PORTER2/28PORTER2-master675.jpg”/>Annals of Internal Medicine reported that health insurance improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, and reduces death rates from breast cancer and trauma.Credit Whitten Sabbatini for The New York TimesAnd as noted in a 2003 study by the Institute of Medicine, insurance status, more than any other demographic or economic factor, determines the timeliness and quality of health care, if it is received at all.It doesn’t require an advanced degree to figure out what limited access to a doctor can do to people’s health. A review of studies published this week in Annals of Internal Medicine reported that health insurance substantially raises people’s chances of survival. It improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, significantly cutting mortality rates. […]

Federal Lawsuit Highlights The Environmental Consequences Of Immigration

In the aftermath of the recent presidential election notable for its almost complete lack of civilized and rational debate on the issue of immigration, it is perhaps not surprising that the issue of the environmental impact of immigration has been almost completely ignored in the strident rhetoric emanating from the presidential candidates. However, that issue is currently being addressed in a federal lawsuit filed last fall in the Southern District of California against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for failing to consider the environmental impact of it immigration policy as required by federal law in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The suit seeks enforcement of the National Environmental Policy Act which requires “any agency considering any action that will affect the environment to analyze and publicize those effects,” and alleges that the DHS and the Immigration and Naturalization Service before it deliberately ignored this requirement to conduct analysis of the environmental impacts of its immigration policies and failure to enforce immigration laws between 1990 and 2010 a time when the US population grew by over 61 million people. By now, most Americans are already aware of the staggering economic consequences of illegal immigration. A massive 500 page report recently released by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine concluded that immigration extracts as much as $296 billion dollars from hapless federal, state, and local taxpayers, depresses wages — especially for legal immigrants and those at the lowest levels of income — and that immigrants receive far more in benefits, both direct and indirect, than they pay in taxes. The data in the report further showed that while immigrants do boost the total size of the economy, those gains are heavily weighted toward the immigrants themselves and to the wealthiest Americans. But while the economic impact of illegal immigration will continue to be debated by populist politicians eager to persuade low-information voters that the economic laws of supply and demand in the labor market can be countermanded by fiat, the environmental impact of illegal immigration has been almost completely ignored […]
