I've had a beef with the health care system for three decades.
But common sense should dictate we look first at the outrageous costs of health care.
Cut the costs, stop the frivolous lawsuits with lawyers raking in the dough that we end up paying for and take a common sense approach to more affordable medical insurance.
None of these things happened which is what republicans proposed as the first no-cost no-nonsense steps to health care reform.
What we got is going to make waits in the ER seem like an eternity.
Well you are still alive.:-)

Remember everybody. You have right to challenge a notion. You have right to refuse drugs. Furthermore, you have right to ask about adverse effects without being treated like a troublemaker.
Finally, once you are a physician so many if us define our entire humanity upon that. I am soooooo much more than a former stinking MD. I am an artist, writer, fitness buff, father and simply a good human being. Even though medicine is still a remote past, I know that even 5 years from now it will be a foregone story. Many wasted years and sweat. Premed, MCAT, medical school and dikc-sucking to get those stupid "letters of recommendation". USMLE 1, 2, 3 and specialty boards. "Compliance training", coding courses, stupid stupid stupid teaching obligations where one truly can see how cutthroat it is and how I probably was myself are all things most people will not believe. Most of the work day spent dictating or dumping stuff on specialists and hospitalists.
Yes, I can totally understand you. I guess I'm blessed getting burned out early enough that I can still do something else without feeling bitter about it.
IMHO, the only people who still believe in the healthcare system are people who don't do any clinical work and tell others what and how to do things and the ones who just take the money and pass their pride the same place as their stools go.
To the ones who still believe healthcare is great, I say thanks, because there is and will be plenty jobs around. I guess as long as it creates jobs it doesn't matter what is done.
I was considered a troublemaker while in the hospital, I'm quite sure.

But it all depends on why you're admitted. If it's surgery, surgeons fix the problem, make sure the incisions are healing well and there's no infection, and then you're discharged.

If it's medical, it can be something very close to a nightmare.

You seem to have a severe problem staying on topic. I'll help you. Here's the post you didn't answer again:
The Arab terrorists are coming to the White House to arrange the release of the Islamist terrorist that attempted to murder 30 thousand Americans.
If you actually paid attention to what Obama has done since he took office, it should be obvious Obama is on the side of the terrorists.
When Obama releases this terrorist, there should be no doubt Obama is one of the terrorists, himself. After all, he started his political career in the home of a terrorist.

So what, LIV douche? it's a publically trade company.
Lincoln and others should know that Al Waleed received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Menlo College in California in 1979 and a Master's degree in Social Science with honors from Syracuse University in 1985.

He bought substantial shares in Citicorp in the 1990s and also made large investments in AOL, Apple Inc., MCI Inc., Motorola, Fox News and other technology and media companies.

He holds investments in real estate including the Four Seasons hotel chain, the Plaza Hotel in New York, London's Savoy Hotel and Monaco's Monte Carlo Grand Hotel and currently holds a 10% stake in Euro Disney.

It's not like he's some sheik decked out in traditional sheik's clothing.

He's a businessman. Fox News is actually in good company with his other investments, among them being Apple, Inc., MCI and Motorola.

Not all nurses are apathetic and indifferent as are not all doctors.

It's just been my experience there's a lot of room for improvement in the medical profession especially with the outrageous costs extracted from patients - of which as many dollars are squeezed from insurance companies as is possible.

I'm getting a flu shot next week. You?

Never have, never will.

The real problem in medicine today is denial of medical care to senior citizens on Medicare to finance Obamacare for welfare bums and illegal aliens.

Speaking of the flu shot, Boston declared a public health emergency with the flu season striking Massachusetts very hard. So far, 18 flu-related deaths. All children.

Even though there's significant activity reported in over 41 states, the 18 deaths were isolated to Massachusetts. Wonder why. Just seems a little unusual.
