    • Ohio: Firefighters on Monday rescued a patient at West Chester Hospital who got stuck inside a wall while attempting to escape the hospital's ED. The patient initially climbed into a drop ceiling of a bathroom, where he breached a fire wall. That dropped him behind a wall in the ED hallway. It's not clear why the patient had attempted to escape the ED (Paavola, Becker's Hospital Review, 3/6).

    • Texas: The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has named Giulio Draetta as its first chief scientific officer. Draetta previously served as the director of the Institute for Applied Cancer Science at M.D. Anderson and as co-leader of M.D. Anderson's Moon Shots Program, which aims to accelerate the process of turning scientific developments into clinical trials (Mathews, Houston Business Journal, 3/6).
