Hadassah - No Medical Liability Insurance

The situation at Hadassah is going from bad to worse. 
As you may know, we have been running a "weekend service", of reduced staff and treating emergencies only, for the last week. 
A decision yesterday by the courts that freezes our debts may also leave us all uninsured against medical malpractice. We are waiting for final confirmation, but in that situation none of the doctors can continue working at all. (In Israel, unlike the UK, you don't have private MDU/MPS insurance - it's all through the work place).

In that case, I have no idea what happens to our several hundred in-patients
