How bad is this hospital?

So the wife and I were up in NashVegas this weekend to help welcome a new niece into the world. On the local next yesterday morning there was this rather strange bit about the shooting of a Springfield police officer:

Springfield Police Officer Shot
March 5, 2007 12:53 AM

A Springfield police officer was recovering Sunday night after being shot inside a local emergency room.

It happened at the NorthCrest Medical Center. Sources tell NewsChannel 5 Officer Curtis Scott was on patrol, and stopped at the ER. They say a man there started fighting with Scott.

During the struggle, a gun went off. The bullet ricocheted off the floor, and hit Scott in the stomach. Scott was then lifeflighted to Vanderbilt where he was treated for his injuries.

Officer Scott is now back at home and we”re told he”s doing okay.

Police have arrested 31 year old Malchico Gardener.

Read that carefully. The officer was shot in the emergency room of a local hospital and flown to Vanderbilt for emergency treatment. And for wounds that were not severe enough to keep the guy in the hospital for 24 hours.

Quite the PR coup for NorthCrest Medical Center.
