Patients Without Control of Payments

leave a comment »

You go to your doctor.

The doctor submits his bill.

The insurance company, medicare and/or medicaid pays the bill.

You may pay a deductible or co-pay.

Patients have little or no control of the payment process.

Why?

Because the system is about the medical industry easily making as much money as possible not about your health.

If your health was important, you would control payments.

Any medical provider who did not do his job, you could dock his payment accordingly.

If the provider refused to see you again, all future payments to the provider would automatically be cut by 10%.

The medical provider would have to satisfy the patient just like any other vendor of goods or services.

Doctors are not special except in extracting money.

More than half are under qualified.

Even more have no patient empathy.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.

Incompetent Doctors

leave a comment »

The medical profession makes it as hard as possible to find out if a doctor has been disciplined or is currently on probation.

And more doctors should be disciplined; many should lose their license to practice permanently.

The medical profession protects its own; those that kill and maim alike.

California has 32 page list of doctors on probation.

The health care system needs a central list of all doctors with all disciplinary charges, whether upheld or not.

There should be another central list of all patient complaints; no doctor responses allowed.

Both lists have to be controlled by a non-governmental organization with no ties to the medical profession.

Both lists should be available, free of charge and with no qualifying(no sign in), over the internet.

Just go to the websites, then look-up or browse.

No one should suffer from an incompetent, unqualified doctor.

Hospital Infections Kill

leave a comment »

Every year over 80,000 Americans die from hospital infections.

The health care system has battled hospital-borne infections for years. But there has been little success.

Why can’t this scourge be stopped?

Because doctors and nurses are lazy.

They do not wash and disinfect their hands.

Since health care workers are clearly unwilling to do their job, it falls on patients to demand safety.

How do you protect yourself?

Simply do this: Before a health care worker touches you, ask politely if they have washed their hands. Wearing gloves is not a safe substitute for handwashing.

You should not feel awkward about asking. Health care workers know they should be washing. Even though it might feel uncomfortable, it could save your life.

Biden Pushing “Cancer Moonshot” Initiative to Fight Cancer

leave a comment »

What is he pushing?

Make it easier for pharmaceutical companies to cash in on human misery.

Standard of care(the only treatment doctors prescribe so as not to get sued and get rich) is chemotherapy and radiation.

This has not changed in decades.

There are MANY more promising cancer treatments available.

Innovative, safer, and more effective.

These treatments do not receive funding.

Why?

They would cut off the profit stream to the cancer medical industry.

Pharmaceuticals, equipment makers, doctors and hospitals.

Cancer treatment is locked into radiation and chemotherapy.

And still people die.

Or live painful, crippled lives.

Current cancer treatments did NOT save Biden’s son.

Who in your family will it let die?

Is Biden stupid and/or corrupt?

If he wants to develop a cancer cure, start funding innovative, non-mainstream cancer treatments.

Stop funding radiation and chemotherapy.

U.S. Health Care System Needs to be Re-Built

leave a comment »

The quality of health care in the United States ranks 50th in the world.

U.S. health care is the most expensive in the world, by far.

Quality is decreasing; costs are sky-rocketing.

And it is only going to get worse.

The medical system is incompetent and corrupt.

The only solution is to totally rebuild it from the ground up.

Some starters:

—  no medical personnel in charge

—  stop pandering to the pharmaceutical and medical equipment industries

—  mal-practice is decided by ordinary individuals with charges displayed and effective nationwide

—  extreme accountability of medical care providers

The government will not do this.

Politicians receive huge campaign contributions from the medical industry.

Cheaper and better medical care is available outside the United States.

Corruption is killing your family.

Cell Phones Cause Cancer

leave a comment »

The Federal Drug Administration for years has denied this.

It was done to support the wireless industry.

Cell phones put out radiation; radiation that causes cancer.

Do you really need your cell phone?

Except for emergencies, why do you need that instant connection?

Keep your cell phone away from your body.

Standard Of Care

leave a comment »

You go to see your doctor.

He tells you have X and this is how we treat X.

Why that treatment?

Because it is “the standard of care”.

What?

“Standard of care” is the treatment doctors have agreed on to avoid liability.

Standard of care

—  may not be the best treatment

—  may not even be a good treatment

—  may not heal/cure you; could even make your health worse

—  prevents doctors from being liable

Avoiding liability is the basis for health care in the United States.

Patient can die, be crippled, suffer, whatever; as long as the medical profession is not liable.

“Standard of care”.

Without “standard of care”, medicine would

—  provide you will better treatments

—  innovate and improve faster

—  save patients billions of dollars

—  force doctors to do their job

Today, many doctors do not do their job; provide the best treatment to cure/heal you.

Instead of working hard and helping society, they just follow along in the ruts collecting money.

There are few exceptions.

Why?

Any doctor against “standard of care” will be ostracized by the medical profession.

No doctor is going to be allowed to make it possible for a patient to hold the medical profession liable.

There is a simple solution:

—  do not allow the medical profession to avoid liability(all disputes must go before a panel)

—  the panel may have medical personnel but doctors(including administrative personnel) does not get to decide liability(doctors never take away the license of another doctor no matter the evil he did)

The question to be answered:

Did the patient receive the best treatment possible?

“Standard of care” is NOT the best treatment possible.
