Please help this uninsured person!

I am pissed off right now, reaching out to the blogging community and wondering why things like this happen in the US.

I have had a woman from Poland clean my house for 20 years. She started when she was in her 20's and in that time has only missed one day: to go back to Poland for her fathers funeral. She is dedicated, sweet and has the best work ethic of anyone I have ever met.
Today as she was working she received a phone call. She was weeping. 
She does not speak wonderful English so I always speak with her daughter, a wonderful young lady who always helps translate and is currently attending community college. She explained to me that her father, who works construction has not only cut his hand but has cut ligaments. The reason for the tears? No health insurance and he has been turned away from the emergency room. 
I spoke with her daughter and said tell your mom to leave, I will pay her and she can be with your dad. She WILL NOT LEAVE. She is so afraid that she will miss her work day (she cleans another house after mine) that she will not stop. She is also afraid that her husband will not be able to work at all as he cannot find help for his hand.
Anyone out there who can help please email me. If you know of a doctor that may specialize in hand surgery who would be willing to work pro-bono, please email me at teporama@aol.com. This hard working family deserves better than this.
