Nassau ER Doctors will Not be Fired

The emergency room doctors at the Nassau University Medical Center will not be fired.

The head of the medical center backed away Monday from a plan to replace most of the emergency room doctors.

Last month the hospital said the doctors needed to be certified in emergency medicine. Even though most of the 20 doctors have years of experience in the emergency room they don’t have the emergency certification.

Generally good news, certainly good if you’re one of the Nassau ED docs.
