Health News Florida: No Documents? No Problem Here

Description: 
The Pew Research Center estimates that 825,000 immigrants in Florida today live here illegally. And regardless of any government policy or ongoing political debate, they sometimes get sick. Health care charities like the Mobile Medical Services ministry Sister Sara Proctor oversees are among the agencies that try to help this mostly poor population. Also, federal law requires hospitals to see anyone who comes in their doors, whether they are American citizens or not.

Florida Matters: Doctors, Patients and Guns
A federal appeals court recently ruled that a Florida law that restricts what doctors can tell patients about gun ownership is constitutional. This latest ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturns a previous decision that had blocked the state from enforcing the law. Physicians groups are planning to appeal the ruling on the Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act that was passed by the state Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott in 2011. We talk to a doctor and a firearms expert about whether doctors should talk to their patients about gun ownership.
