    I'll bet similar results could be found with other serious conditions like the extensive cardiac surgeries. Sounds like more research is indicated, but I doubt that it would have much effect on staffing and services avail on weekends. Would cost more $$.

    Lesson to be learned --- don't get seriously sick on weekends!
