  • Mr. Visconti, congrats on your recovery, and I am genuinely sorry you experienced the breakdown of competence at Princeton Hospital. It is a great gift for you to have such a broad forum to expose it, and you worked hard to build that. The world is full of “C” students, and the ER is not where you want to run into them. I hope your expose’ has the desired effect. I found your introduction even more valuable than the speech that followed.
