Violence in a Hospital: Katharine Mieszkowski at The Bay Citizen tells the scary inside story of a state hospital for the mentally ill.

Gifts From Gates: Sarah Arnquist at GlobalHealthHub.org gives a rundown of health news funded by the Gates Foundation.

In other reform news, PolitFact has named its "Lie of the Year": GOP leaders' description of the health care law as a "government takeover."

Rationing Health Care: You might have heard Sheri Fink's report on dialysis in South Africa. Check out The World's four-part series on ways care is doled around the globe.
