More detail for those interested in the Tucson patient who had trouble finding care for her leg wound

There's an article in the Arizona Daily Star (click here ) which goes into more detail on the events surrounding the patient in the MSNBC story I referred to in my last post, who could not find a Plastic Surgeon in the city of Tucson (pop. 946,362+) to take care of her leg injury.
The patient in this instance, Mary Jo McClure chronicled her experience with this episode on the web by starting a website " My Severe Wound.com". You can actually see photos of the wound during her treatment which required two surgeries to treat.
