the hospital's social dimension
Call to the fan community: I'm doing some research on the show and I remember a discussion between Richard and Burke (or Derek) about the hospital's duty to treat all patients or something like that but I can't find it back. Can anyone help me situate that discussion.
Also, if you remember (and can situate) anything that includes the human/social dimension of the hospital, that would help me a great deal (e.g. the free clinic; when George goes to great lengths to fund Joe's costly operation; when Bailey antedates a guy's operation because his insurance policy stopped the day before; when Izzie treats an illegal chinese immigrant outside the hospital walls...)
Thanks a lot,

Then there was this three episode long thing shown over a patient who was a serial killer and was due for execution in a week's time Mer treated hiim so compassionately I personally loved these epis and the message they tried to give yes agreed he was a serial killer but Mer forced us to see at the other side of the coin too where he was also a person We forget to see criminals as persons Instead of hatign the crime the sin we start hating the sinners themselves And then Mer even went to his execution that was like Beautiful It was like you know seeing Mer's compassion the serial killer took away some goodness into his next life He died by believing that yes there is goodness int he world and there r good people so perhaps in his next life he wld want to be good u know? I knwo it sounds very philosphical and all but think abt it all his life he just believed in evil and saw nothing but hatred but Ner's action made him see humanity goodness kidness compassion and everyone even a serial killer deserves at least one moment in his life where he can actually see all these feelings
