College guide for parents – TheStreet

It’s early Sunday morning, and the week-long silence is broken by the sound of Mr. Smith’s cell phone on his bedside table. It’s the hospital calling about her daughter, injured and in intensive care.

Mr. Smith rattles off question after question about how his daughter is doing with only vague generalities in response. The attending physician asks if Mr. Smith has HIPAA clearance or substitute health care for his daughter. Mr Smith ignores the question and repeats his concerns about his daughter’s injuries. The doctor continues to sidestep the issue and return to what appears to be a pointless discussion of legal documents. How is it possible ?
