Harbor-UCLA in jeopardy of closing

Inspectors from the state's Department of Health Services visited the busy emergency room on Feb. 1 and said they would issue a citation of "immediate jeopardy" due to overcrowding and long delays. They found two patients complaining of chest pains who were not examined "on a timely basis." The Board of Supervisors acted worried Tuesday that they have another King-Drew problem on their ledger.
