Warren Steptore was one of the people featured in Pete Nick’s documentary “The Waiting Room.” Though uninsured, Warren is covered by the V.A., but because there isn't a V.A. hospital close to him he often resorts to the Emergency Room for treatment.
In this StoryCorps interview Warren speaks with his daughter Amanda at Highland Hospital. His conversation was facilitated by Sophia Simon Ortiz with San Francisco StoryCorps and edited by KALW’s Jeremy Dalmas.
