ACA: Entering The Great Era Of Hospital Mistrust?

What my concerns is…will the doctors and hospitals communicate less with their
patients. Will they revert doctor talk that nobody can understand, will the doctors in the hospitals make pains to avoid their patients. So the themes are cost containment and listening to what the business want to for care for and profit centralism of the hospitals .

Basically, from the hospitals and their doctors are we going to get the silent treatment…with unseen agendas choosing the life or death outcomes. Then the lawyers get in there to coach the doctors and their staffs how to talk to patients and their loves ones. We are required to have a limited set of tools to treat you, it might be legally risky for us...this is the kind of talk that protects us.

They only way this is going to work is to give patient more power of transparency…

Are the ultimate outcome of ACA going to be less doctor, hospital patient communion...especially to middle class and vulnerable, especially when we are the sickest…

Are we entering the great era of hospital mistrust?

'Clint Eastwood saved my life'
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.-- Clint Eastwood added another starring role at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am -- life saver.

Clint Eastwood, shown at the 2012 tournament, said his life-saving efforts marked the first time he had used the Heimlich maneuver.
Eastwood attended a volunteer party on the eve of the PGA Tour event when he noticed tournament director Steve John choking on a piece of cheese. The 83-year-old actor quickly performed the Heimlich maneuver Wednesday night at the Monterey Conference Center.

"I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work," John said Friday. "I was looking at him and couldn't breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life."
"I can't believe I'm 202 pounds and he threw me up in the air three times," John said.
^so boys and girls, what lessons can we all learn from this?
1- stay healthy, eat right, exercise, don;t smoke etc. and you could live into your eighties and like Clint lift another man up three times while giving him the Heimlich maneuver
2- Properly masitcate your food before swallowing!
