Doctors that no longer have control over patient care?
Is it possible that the Gunman in the Colorado Massacre was not properly treated for a serious mental illness?
In a news story out of Fox News Company the medical record of this doctor could be suspect in some serious ways.
WAS Psychiatrist Lynne Fenton treating Colorado movie massacre suspect James Holmes.
Did she make a mistake? Should she have hospitalized him? The answer now is obviously yes and yes and yes.
But was this a preventable situation, I think the answer has to be yes, though it is so easy to say it from this viewpoint you have to think that if this patient had been treated by a more professional and perhaps even “Board Certified” doctor the end result may have been very different, of course this does not excuse any human being from the personal responsibility of exercising good judgement and seeking help before something like this becomes a problem.
Over all the answers may never be known one thing for sure as long as we have marginal doctors that should not be practicing medicine for critical patients, we will face the possibility of having these problems over and over again.
The thing to do now is to find out how to identify these high risk patients and take the appropriate action to prevent these horrible outcomes.
Reading about the potential for the treating physician may have dropped the ball is convenient but is it accurate we really do not know the full extent of this situation it might be that she did try to help him but he did not come to his appointments on a regular basis, of course its so easy to sit back on the couch and judge the results still it makes you wonder if the man had sought more qualified and professional help would we even be reading this story today?
We really do need to begin to better asses the risk involved in human behavior, considering this took place over a period of several months, there were likely many signs that something was wrong, from the purchase of ammunition to guns, to all kinds of different things in-between, you would think that someone along the line would have taken the steps of reporting this to the police so it could be investigated.
If it turned out to be nothing you did what you could do, but in this case it turned out to be a serious problem that no one took action on, from the shooting club, to gun dealers, to doctors, no one did the right thing, how could that happen?
Once we learn how to identify how to stop these situations from occurring and how to manage our actions better we might find that saving lives becomes a lot easier.
Until that time we may find that the answers are still waiting to be found, however it appears that at least several opportunities were lost to prevent this crime and that is something that will haunt the dreams of those involved for many years to come.
Are we all being duped by the very doctors that should be caring for us?
Are insurance companies lying to us?
Are you thinking about changing Medicare plans but are not sure what to do?
If you are sick and tired of all the insurance companies that are making money while Americans die because they cannot afford to get quality medical care then it is time to vote these evil people out of office.
Is that what happened? Are the democrats really threatening to shut down the government because they cannot stop wasting money. It is really crazy, you know funding NPR which only represents 8 percent of the view of the American people.
Funding Planned Parent hood, which allegedly supports and makes arrangements with doctors to terminate the lives of unborn children and they do this with public tax dollars?
Is that really what the liberals want their children to remember?
If that is what they really want I say shut down the government.
WE do not need them but they do need us.
WE are the people they have no power.
We are sick of all the lies…
Can we believe the news?
In a recent news story the topic of ALCL or Anaplastic large cell lymphoma a Cancer that can develop allegedly in relation to the use of medical implants or breast implants.
For years many doctors and websites have allegedly distorted the truth that implants may not be as safe as many people think they are.
They seem to have taken to the idea that spin is in, as in they stress certain words in an article while downplaying other words that perhaps may be of more importance.
For example they have no evidence to support their assertions that implants do not cause health problems, yet, the truth would seem to point to the opposite of what they claim is true.
It is also significant that most of what they state is very subjective and requires no proof on their part.
The whole truth may take years to come out, however, it is important to get to the heart of the matter by getting an evaluation, if you are someone you love is ill and you believe they could be at risk for this cancer please do all you can to get them some help, many of these alleged victims are so ill that they cannot make sound decisions nor would any patient with several illnesses be expected to be able to follow through on treatment, that is why they need help.
Again for more information and for other issues effecting women health please visit breast implant dangers.
Will dismantling the health care reform bill, really stop the erosion of health care in America?
Can insurance reform really correct the problems we have faced over the last few years?
Amazing but true insurance companies may not have your best interest at heart, (allegedly)
What we got and what we need are two different things that is why we need to go back and get this thing done right.
What America needs is insurance reform not Health care reform, because it is the insurance companies that have caused the problems we face, and also having administrators, in charge of hospitals instead of doctors and admins together, it should be a joint process not from a business perspective only.
Yet, too often that has been the result, so the problem clearly is not the quality of Health care in the US but the quality of Insurance companies.
This is the real problem and it was not fixed in the health care reform bill and that is why people want it to be repealed, because it was done in a corner, or in a back room with the doors and windows shut to the outside world.
It was done allegedly as a political machination and not to benefit the people.
This is why it must be repealed.
It must be defined and it must be public, this is the only fair and just way to proceed, not in some back room deal that benefits unions and special interests.
We the people need to send a message to congress that the corrupted process that was used to enact this poorly justified bill should be examined and determined to be a fraud on the American people.
Repeal this garbage and enact fair insurance reform, in this nation, that is the only way to do this the right way.
Well after a long absence, from the public eye, the singer, or I guess she still sings, who knows for sure, sometimes you just have to say what are they thinking after a 2007 comment about using only one sheet of toliet paper, ( so we can save the trees )
Sorry, that is just funny, you go girl…
Go somewhere else, because you will never sell a record at this house, no matter how crazy you act.
Guess who was at the bottom of this latest alleged tirade, none other than couric, who used to be popular but now is just a reminder that no amount of alleged, late night visits to doctors can help your face look better.
Oh well, I guess you just never know, at least they are honest, right, even if they are wrong.
So what is up with the most recent, comments, about the tea party not being educated.
Funny, we could say the same thing about you.
Crazy people but you know what is different about us tea party people and you.
We do not depend on the public good will to sell records.
You do, but then again, you really should not expect, to sell too many of your records, when you insult, America, do you really think your going to be popular?
Do you really think we care about your use of toilet paper?
Last night I had a dream, which turned out to be a nightmare, I dreamed I was sick and in a hospital, but there were not enough doctors, because many of the doctors, had retired, and there were even more doctors that the state board had taken their license for prescribing too much medication, ( google it ) its happening now, there were not enough nurses, there were not enough of anything.
The hospitals were choked with people, because they could not help anyone, because of all the new rules, required them to treat only specific illnesses first and so they looked through all the hundreds of people that were sick to see if they could find just the right sickness so they could abide by all the rules that were imposed, they could not afford to make a mistake because the rules said that if they did they would be fined, up to $50,000 so many of the doctors left the practice because they could not afford to be in business anymore.
The insurance companies, went out of business because they could not afford to cover even their own employees any more and besides it was easier to go out of business than to pay special interests to defend themselves, from people who did not have to use the useless health care system they created for the rest of america.
The medical schools went out of business because they had no students, because no one wanted to become a doctor and be put in jail for prescribing too much medication.
People were laid off from thousands of companies, because of the health care problem, which they made even worse because of all the rules and fines and regulations.
The employment rate, went up to 22 percent, crime went up 30 percent, rapes, robberies, murders, went up because the police could not afford to hire enough people to cover the streets anymore, because of all the high costs of health care.
It was a horrible nightmare, an alternative world, no way that was america.
Then I woke up and found that the night mare was true, thanks to congress, what was once a nightmare is only just starting to become true, what a shame, they thought they were smarter than anyone else, but it turned out they really were not.
The truly sad part of this nightmare, is that it has happened before, in other places in other times, yet, for some reason which no one really understood they tried it yet again, and they failed.
The trouble is that they do not care because they do not have to deal with a health care system they ran into the ground, they have the best health care in the world and it is available to no one else but them, no wonder everyone wants to be in congress.
Turns out its the only way to stay healthy.
Will you be next, will they decide that you are not worth saving, will you be the next victim of hope and change?
This is not the hope and change that america voted for, this is very close to alleged, treason..
There is no way that liberals would commit treason would they?
Will they really try and take over america? If they do try this will they ever be able to be a powerful party again, it looks like they are failing, and getting even more desperate, as time goes by, this is crazy.
Watch as the democrats try to take over the united states, as they try to over ride the constitution as they run around Drunk on the power and refusing to listen to the american people.
I received this message in an email it is provocative, It is scary, and it is allegedly true, it is time to vote them out of office.
This very likely could happen….. then what do we do?
Received this from a good friend of ours in Corpus who was diagnosed with cancer last year.. See what his doctor is saying….
Wednesday, I was at the doctor whom I have been going to since we moved down here (he is the one who discovered my cancer). I have to get a very expensive shot every 3 months ($3000) that is designed to keep the PSA down and help to prevent a recurrence of the cancer. Has some uncomfortable side effects, and I was questioning the need to continue with it, which he assured me was necessary. He then asked how old I was, and when I replied 70, he said that if this legislation goes through as intended by the powers that be, that I probably would not be able to get it next year, as that would be money better spent on someone else with greater longevity. I would be referred to someone to “counsel” me.
I asked him why the AMA had recently endorsed the plan. He replied that only about 15% of the nation’s doctors were members of AMA, and most of them were not really on the front lines of doctorhood but in some other areas of medicine. He said he was a member, but would not be after this membership year.
This man got part of his training in London , and practiced in Canada for 16 years before coming to the US , and he has no use for socialized medicine, regardless of how you wrap it, or what kind of bow to put on it. He said that we have a shortfall of around 400,000 doctors at the present time, and many of today’s doctors are of the baby boomer generation who are nearing retirement and/or will decide to hang it up rather than deal with the results this is sure to bring.
SENIOR DEATH WARRANTS:
In England no one over 59 can receive heart repairs or stents or bypass because it is not covered, as being too expensive and not needed.
The administartion wants to have a healthcare system just like Canada and England. I got this today and am sending it on.
Everybody that is on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close or knows somebody that is.
Most of you know by now that the Senate version (at least) of the “stimulus” bill includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement:
Bloomberg: Daschle says “health-care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them.”
If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that our esteemed Senators and Congressmen have their own healthcare plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which they are guaranteed for the remainder of their lives. Nor are they subject to this new law if it passes.
Please use the power of the Internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up, it is time to vote them out of office, they are useless, as bumps on a log, its time for them to go home.
