The Wisconsin clinics should also loose funds. If a patient is so ill that they cannot get out of bed and or even go to work for over a week, and are still ill, I suggest the PAC who they seen and denied them antibiotics is either poorly trained or has misdiagnosed.
We know a PAC nor a CNP are not real educated Doctors but sometimes portray themselves as such. A patient would have to be on antibiotics frequently before becoming immune. That means more than just a couple times a year and even then it's a 50/50 chance that they become immune. It is easier for them to blow the patient off with the virus excuse than investigate further or prescribe an antibiotic. There are many different kinds of antibiotics for use so even if someone does become immune to one, there are others to use. This is just another way to deny patients medications, as they themselves probably just get samples from anyone of the Doctors and don't have to fight for what they need, nor would one of their family members which would be different because hey, they have status. What happened to the Doctors who actually wanted to help their patients and there were many years ago. The new Doctors and their staff these days should all take a good look in the mirror.

Why is it always negative about the senior citizens on Medicare? We continue to hear complaints about seniors on Medicare in the Media, Doctors Clinics, Hospitals, etc. These stories make it sound like they are a problem, which is absurd considering most have worked all their life and PAID into these agencies. They also continue to PAY taxes from their limited income and PAY for Medicare along with PAYING for the supplement they must have.

When a person goes into an emergency room at the hospital with severe stomach pain and the Doctor or staff passes it off as the Flu, without even considering any tests, and then, it takes 3 more visits to correctly diagnose that it is in fact a severe Gall Batter problem which has to be removed, that is a red flag that these people need more training or that hospital needs different Doctors. This is a major problem with the healthcare field these days. They don't want to actually take the time to evaluate the situation correctly. It's absurd.

So look out employees. Jobs are on the line if and when there are cuts. The employers that do not want to offer heath benefits and may be fined by Obama with his new ACA health care are the first ones who will find a way to get rid of an employee with any phony excuse they can muster up. This includes nursing homes. Get your lawyers ready. HHS needs to be looking into this.
