The Death of Mr. Lazarescu - Close Call

Posted on: May 1, 2006 | Views: 145 | Comment

There seems to be no room at the hospital for a dying man.

Anyone who has waited for treatment in an emergency room or chafed under the less than devoted care of a disinterested doctor will recognize Mr. Lazarescu's dilemma.

A 60-ish widower, living alone in Bucharest with his cats, feels sick enough one evening to call an ambulance. This is the beginning of his Dantesque odyssey deep into the bowels of a big city medical establishment. It's a story that could take place anywhere and Mr. Lazarescu could be your next-door neighbor -- or he could be you!
