had plumbing problems;"
Nagarajan and her fellow tenants'
problems started when the toilet stopped
flushing and couldn't be unplugged.
"We opened the laundry room door
and some sewage had come up through
the drain;" Nagarajan said. "By the time
someone got over here the floor was cov-
ered in water, complete with feces and
pieces of toilet paper."
Both Russell and Nagarajan said they
received less than sympathetic treatment
from their landlords.
When the building management was
called, Nagarajan said she was told in a
"condescending" tone that the situation
was "not an emergency."
After several hours, a roto-rooter com-
pany was called and arrived to unclog the
drain, after water seeped into an adjacent
"it was on Labor Day weekend and
they told us no one would be able to
come until Monday. They didn't offer to
put us into a hotel either"'Nagarajan said.
The landlord replaced the carpet, and
Nagarajan and her fellow tenants were
refunded for three days' rent, although "it
wasn't a whole lot of money," Nagarajan
Russell and the other tenants were
forced to live with friends during
January and February 1996 while
repairs were being made to their
house, even though they were paying
Even after repairs, the problems con-
tinued. "Our heat and electricity went out
repeatedly even though we paid the bills
on time;" Russell said. "We had leaks
throughout the first floor."
"it got to the point where you would
go to go sleep at night and not know how
you would wake up," Russell said of his
biggest fear while living in the house.
Russell and his housemates filed a
lawsuit against their landlord and found
there were five other lawsuits pending
against him for "similar, if not worse,
After living through a year of constant
turmoil, and ultimately winning the law-
suit, Russell learned a little about shop-
ping for a house.
"This is my last year and we took a
great deal of time and effort to find a'
house" he said.
Nagarajan's sewage seepage situa-
tion made a repeat performance soon
after winter break. Although the car-
pet wasn't replaced, it was cleaned,
Nagarajan said she will never live in a
basement apartment again.
"What we were most afraid ofwas the
infection and disease that can come from
feces;' Nagarajan said. "The apartment
just never feels clean to us?"
Nagarajan's landlord, -Campus
Rentals, and Russell's private landlord
could not be reached for comment on
Students with unresolved problems
have several options in correcting the sit-
uation, Director of Student Legal
Services Doug Lewis said..
"(Students) can, by law, withhold rent
until the landlord makes the desired
repairs" Lewis said."Students can-fbr
minor repairs - make it themselves and
then deduct the cost from their rent."
Tenants do need to inform the land-
lord that a problem first exists,
preferably in the form of written
notice, before taking legal action,
Lewis said. He added that in some
cases, landlords are repeat offenders,
so often when their names are men-
tioned, the problem can be identified.
"We've got one group who comes in
and gives us the landlord's name and we
know its bugs;" Lewis said. "It's a never-
Although problems change with the
time of year, some of the more common
problems include lack of heat or water
leaking, Lewis said.
Students aren't the only ones who
lodge complaints, however.
"The big (complaint) we see is where
the carpet is ruined and the landlord
wants to blame the present tenants so
they can buy new carpet with the securi-
ty deposit," said Lewis.
Students with tenant-landlord disputes
also can seek help from off-campus
"We have a mediation services pro-
gram where we try to offer students
informational advice and counseling
to assist them in resolving their own
disputes,' Jeff Micale, housing advis-
er for off-campus housing' services,
said. "We can help walk people
through the steps they need to take."
Off-campus housing services has a
registering service for both large leasing
companies and private landlords. The
service helps to keep leases on file and
with mediation services.
Although some landlords are unre-
sponsive to their tenants, many are con-
cerned with the upkeep of their proper-
"We're pretty responsive as far as
maintenance goes," said Colin Khan, the
assistant manager of CMB property
management. "We have four guys who
work 40 hours a week on staffto improve
the buildings and keep up the worth of
Khan said the most popular com-
plaints he receives have to do with
"Disposals not working, we get a lot of
that and toilets being stopped up - that's
a popular one, too;' he said.

But notoriety isn't the University's
main reason for doing the show.
Mike Harrison, public relations
director for University Hospitals, said
through involvement with The
Learning Channel, the hospital "hopes
to increase general public awareness of
the operations and help others who may
be suffering (from similar ailments).'
Karin Muraszko, the medical center's
chief of pediatric neurosurgery featured
recently on the show, said the basic oper-
ations like bunion removals and cesarean
sections appeal to viewers because they
can be obscure and dramatic.
Muraszko performed a selective dorsal
rhizotomy, an operation often done on
children with cerebral palsy. She said
this procedure had the potential to be
"understandable and interesting without
exaggeration" - exactly what the show
was looking for.
"Sensationalism is not the way to sell
medicine;' Muraszko said.
Dr. Steven Bolling, a heart surgeon
a narrator read voice-overs for the live
footage and tape follow-up care of the
In addition, finding the right doctor to
capture on camera can be tricky.
"You need a doctor who can handle the
added stress," Muraszko said. "A hesi-
tant doctor is not a good choice.
Anything can go wrong in the operating
Bolling performed a mitral valve
reconstruction wearing a novelty frog
He said he wore the hat "to make the
drama associated with scary procedures
more fun and informative?'
Bolling is no stranger to television.
His TV appearances include medical
shows in South Africa and Japan.
From a cleft-palates removal to heart
surgery, the University's top surgeons
have done it all, and captured interested
viewers from all over the country.
Muraszko said the University is "one
of few hospitals in the country able to
perform the featured procedures?'
Letters from as far away as Puerto
Rico have praised the University sur-
geons for their compassion and hard
work on the show, Streb said.
