The economy is like a 200 car fully loaded freight train it took 8 years to stop it and it may take even longer to get it rolling again.

QUOTE>uncompensated care, which includes bad debts, charity care and discounts for uninsured patients. It also saw a surprising increase in unpaid bills among insured patients — from $1 million last year to $8 million through Oct. 2008 <QUOTE

Why do I bother to pay my health insurance premiums every month? Why don't I just park my a$$ in urgent care and get treatment free? Or waltz into the ER and get help for my ingrown toenail?

Because I pay my own way. What a novel concept. I studied hard in school, got a decent job, earned my pay.

I work at Park Nicollet, and once again the nurses are the ones that take the hit. They are hiring more managers! Why do we need more managers than we have nurses? I still can't figure that one out. The nurses are TOLD to stay home when the census is low. Is anyone else told to stay home? People that work in the business offices, pharmacy, housekeeping, cafeteria? NO! Just the nurses once again. Yea, I went into this profession because I have a caring heart...I don't need to pay my bills.
