#Health Care Quality Is Not Important

leave a comment »

Little parable.

Part One

Person takes their car in for repairs.

Repair shop makes a mistake.

Mistake cause car to crash; totally destroyed.

Repair shop is liable for replacement car and medical bills.

Part Two

Person goes to hospital.

Doctors mistakenly amputates foot.

Another patient was to have foot amputated.

Person’s quality of life is permanently and significantly decreased.

Person may get poor quality prosthetic foot and some money.

Nothing happens to doctors or hospital.

Lessons

Property is more important than a person’s body and related quality of life.

There is no justice/fairness for patients.

The Hippocratic oath means nothing.

The medical profession is not a calling but a money grubbing evil.

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

Surgery Malpractice

leave a comment »

Malpractice is defined by the medical profession; doctors.

Who commits medical malpractice; doctors.

Doctors watching doctors.

Like all professions, they protect their own at the detriment to patients.

True malpractice is when a doctor does anything that harms a patient.

More than half of all surgeries are cases of malpractice:

—  unnecessary surgeries

—  doing the wrong surgery

—  surgical errors

—  doctor carlessness

—  removing unnecessary body parts

—  unnecessarily damaging organs or tissue

—  contaminated implanted and instruments

Surgeons want easy and to get the money.

Hippocratic oath be damned.

Put patients first.

Not in this life time.

Are there any caring physicians left in the world?

Probably not.

#HealthAlert — Talcum Powder Causes Cancer

leave a comment »

Using talcum power in the genital area causes ovarian cancer.

Also, there are the dangers of an infant inhaling the powder, which could even kill a baby.

Researchers from the UK found particles of talc “deeply embedded” in a number of ovarian tumors.

All this is old news:

—  in the 1960″s, pediatricians warned about babies breathing in talcum powder

— in 1971, a published study confirmed the findings of talc particles in ovarian tumors, and in 1982 an epidemiologist published research that showed a link between talc use near the genitals and ovarian cancer

—  over ten years ago the International Agency for Research on Cancer listed talc as a “possible carcinogen.”

If you want to  use baby powder, use a version using corn starch; avoid chemicals such as triclosan and formaldehyde.  Be sure to read the label carefully so you get the right one — for both mom and baby!

No Dental Insurance for YOU

leave a comment »

No matter what medical/health insurance you have, there is low quality dental coverage at best.

In most cases, where dental coverage is available, it is a separate policy.

Dental policies cover very little.

So little, the policies are not worth having.

Dental care is very important:

—  dental issues can become serious health conditions

—  dental issues are often a precursor to major medical issues

—  dental issues have a major impact on the quality of life

—  preventive dental care is very cost efficient and effective

Health insurance providers(including medicare and medicaid) are saving money short term to payout much more money long term.

Government regulations require health insurance to cover many medical treatments, but not dentistry.

Dentistry is treated like a luxury; something only for upper classes.

Inhumane, incompetence, stupid, corruption and evil.

FDA is a KILLER

leave a comment »

FDA stands for Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA is a killer.

It kills thousands of people every day.

Here is how it kills them:

—  allowing contaminated water for drinking, bathing, etc:  think Flint, MI

—  allows contaminated food:  especially meat, think of all the sick/dead people from eating unclean chicken

—  allows sub-standard imported food:  foreign food suppliers can used substances banned in the US and still export the food to the US

—  allows drugs and other chemicals banned in other countries to be used in the US

—  approves dangerous drugs later to be removed from the market

—  approves drugs with side effects greater than their benefits or do not work

—  allows false and misleading labeling of food

—  the list is endless

People die, get cancer, have poor health and a mass murderer goes free.

And the US has low quality health care and getting worse.

No wonder health care costs sky-rocket.

More dead, dying and broke people in the US.

Thanks FDA.

Your Doctor Is Probably Wrong

leave a comment »

Your doctor could not possibly botch a simple everyday diagnosis.

New research shows how odds are, you’d be WRONG!

Turns out many docs are clueless routinely muffing up basic diagnoses and treatments.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic examined nearly 300 patients who had first seen their own doctors and found nearly 88 percent were the victims of screw-ups.

Just 12 percent had been given a completely correct diagnosis.

In 21 percent of the cases — more than one in five patients — the first doctor’s diagnosis wasn’t even close.

It was COMPLETELY wrong, and the Mayo Clinic had to give the patient an entirely new diagnosis.

In the other 66 percent of the cases, the docs were only kinda-sorta right, getting at least SOME part of the diagnosis wrong.

This isn’t horseshoes OR hand grenades. Close doesn’t count when it comes to your health.

If your doc’s even a little wrong, you could be sicker for longer… get worse … or suffer needlessly with a condition that could’ve been quickly treated IF he knew what he was dealing with from the get-go.

I know what you might be thinking.

Not MY doctor! If he were this bad, I’d sure as heck be able to figure it out, right?

Well… maybe not.

Remember that many common conditions, from pain to infection, cure themselves over time — sometimes, in a matter of days.

So, what does this mean for you? QUESTION EVERYTHING.

You do not have to turn yourself into a pest at the doctor’s office, but you DO have to pepper him with questions until you’re satisfied he’s dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s.

And if you are not getting better, do not be shy about getting a second or even third opinion.

Today’s doctors have little concern for their patients, especially their quality of life.

Their motto:  Get the money while not getting sued.

Health Care Costs Crushing Your Health

leave a comment »

Health care costs are sky-rocketing:  health insurance premiums, the copays and the deductibles.

Each year, those costs go up and far faster than any potential increases in your income.

Health care in America is eating up larger chunks of your income, forcing you to more often skip those doctor visits or postpone needed medical treatment.

And forget about wellness visits.

What are you going to do?

Nothing.

Except watch your health deteriorate day by day.

Then die, hopefully not in agony.

OR

Take responsibility for your health.

But you will not.

Why?

Too lazy, and too ignorant.

Too proud with a big ego to ask for help.

Sad.

Real Sad.
