60 Minutes: The Cost Of Hospital Admission
When is the last time you visited a hospital emergency room? Often, patients are treated for minor problems and immediately released, allowing doctors and medical resources to go to those who have the most critical needs.
But Steve Kroft is telling the story of some doctors who say that’s not the way American hospitals always do business. These physicians told 60 Minutes that they were pressured by hospital management to ensure that patients were being admitted whenever possible, whether or not it was medically necessary to do so.
Tune in for 60 Minutes on Sunday, June 9 to find out more about this story.
60 Minutes: Justice Sonia Sotomayor
The Supreme Court is always in the news this time of year, because the justices save the decisions in their most critical and controversial cases for the end of their year. While we await some of this year’s hotly debated legal matters, 60 Minutes is looking at one of the youngest members of the bench.
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has a truly American story. She came from a humble middle class life and ascended to the nation’s highest court, thanks to her hard work and determination. She has also told her own story in a memoir.
Scott Pelley is talking with Sotomayor on the June 9 episode of 60 Minutes.
60 Minutes: Sagrada Familia
In Barcelona, Spain, there is a remarkable work of architecture and faith in a constant state of reinvention. The Sagrada Familia, a world-famous church, was first conceived in the 1800s, long before the advent of the modern advances in construction and technology that have made the execution of its vision fully possible.
More than a century after its story began, work is still in progress, and those responsible for the project have a remarkable devotion to this miraculous and holy site. Take a look inside Sagrada Familia on 60 Minutes.
