Lets see a poll on how many of the readmits are senior citizens on Medicare, who Medicare would prefer they just die and get it over with. The real problem isthere are limitations on how many days a patient can stay in a hospital with all insurance, unless of course you are wealthy and can cover the cost.
The American insurance companies are no better than the common criminal in the way they treat their PAYING customers. It's to bad they cannot be held responsible for the deaths they cause by denying care.

A patient went to an E.R. in Woodbury and the staff could not get an I.V. in this dehydrated sick human being in severe pain and when the patient cried out in pain, one of the male nurses in the room told that patient to shut up and quit screaming or they would report the patient for abuse to hospital staff. That staff member needs to get out of the medical field. Fired! If you have no compassion or empathy in this field you do not belong there. First of all there are several ways to get a vein without hurting the patient and they are all trained on different ways. It appeared that these people did not want to waste their time trying another way. So they just sent the patient home. Really, Getting quality compassionate care is in the past and now and some of these employees who choose this profession need to get out of it. If the patient complains, it goes nowhere and is covered up. They can enter any sarcastic untruthful comments in patients records and there is nothing the patient can do to have them retracted.
