81. Donald Trump triggers deep-seated human instincts

Donald Trump triggers deep-seated human instincts Donald Trump triggers deep-seated human instincts Donald Trump triggers deep-seated human instincts | | October 19, 2016 78 Shares My dad is a locally famed and sincere career politician. All my life I have seen him value public service over personal wealth. As a young lawyer, he worked in Washington DC for the Department of Justice during the civil rights movement, and he often shares stories of his tour of duty in 1960’s Alabama. After (...) I see it. One colleague, a physician, has taken to disparaging remarks about other physicians’ ethnicity. Another told me a blatant racial joke. I have a physician colleague who religiously brings me extreme right wing presidential campaign propaganda which is often constructed in the form of a joke. I repeatedly tell him, “I don’t think it’s funny.” Worse than that, I think it’s part of the problem. Again, these colleagues are fellow physicians. They have attained arguably the highest

84. Why not make antibiotics over the counter?

? I don’t know, but here’s something I do. I’ve had patients storm out because I’ve said no, and I take the chance of a negative review right then and there when it happens. Not to mention a lawsuit, should some complication arise, and a lawyer takes on the case of “why weren’t antibiotics prescribed.” Should we basically cater to patient requests? We take a risk when we say no, in this increasingly customer-service based field, so why not just have them over-the-counter? We’ve all seen (...) the relevant cartoon. It’s posted on my personal Facebook page, sent by a good friend just the other day. A mug, held by the hand of a doctor, states, “Don’t confuse my medical degree with your Google search.” Sigh. If this were only a joke. I have had several interactions in the office where a patient, after saying hello and being asked the common office conversation starter, “Why are you here today?” answers with, “I’m here to get a Z-pak for my bronchitis.” Basically, the patient here makes

87. The argument for time based billing

written repeatedly for the past 14 years, patients need us to spend the proper time attending to their needs. Time-based billing has made sense for many years, yet the idea never gains traction in the US. Please read the JAMA Internal Medicine article and let us know what you think. Share this: Like this: Like Loading... Comments (7) Dr Dave said on 31-05-2016 Since I HATE anything to do with lawyers and any actual antics they play billing like them skeves me to no end. The shear fact that more time (...) equals more money is counter to the fact that we should be based on helping patients not determined by time clock who pays more. SURE lawyers have justified their “time and materials” approach to billing but then so do plumbers and Rotor Rooter neither of which I feel appropriate assimilating. We need to be paid for experience and expertise and with that if I can answer a problem in 7 minutes as opposed to another who takes 20 does that mean I am to be penalized or should I just sit and chat while

initial comment to me about confidentiality in medicine and followed by my now publishable response. ..Maurice. Maurice, You do realize that confidentiality is a joke! I respond here with: Banterings, I was speaking about what I teach first and second year medical students and how they relate to their patients and the documents they write. All students from the first day know not to identify the patient's name on the writeup. Their writeups are read by no one but myself. The details of the history (...) on the cape of a super being then errors become glaring and perhaps more shocking. Lawyers have not helped - they have made millions off of this growing mistrust. Had the medical profession been more willing to self-censure with humility I'm sure public trust would have remained higher. When docs are sworn to cause no harm but we know that many pts die each year from mistakes or are given diseases like MRSA and C. difficile while under care we lose trust. The numbers are staggering; every person hurt

90. Trending issues in medicine 2015 – #2 Regulations

40 years developing VISTA/CPRS – they should just say we all have to use that and give it to us. (it is already available in some form for free due to FOI requests) 2. Approval forms – I think I should be paid for everything I fill out. Lawyers bill for all paperwork. We should as well. 3. Prior authorization – You do of course recognize that ‘prior authorization’ is purely devised to save the insurance companies money, right? It is an entirely meaningless hoop to jump through, because (...) the studies prove that adding hoops/regulations means that you get less of that activity. They know that a good percentage of studies will just not be done because it is too much of a hassle. 4. Billing requirements (E&M coding) was put into place to try to compensate appropriately due to complexity but it is a joke. Templates have made the notes meaningless. The only way to do away with this is to have some TRUST in the doctors. How about the old Reagan doctrine of TRUST but VERIFY. Doctors can write

Allowing us to bring our own chaperones with video cameras to keep doctors in line, and make sure our wishes were followed wouldn't cost the hospital anything.

At , said... Here's an another marked difference between our two countries...

My initial reaction was “Gaaaaah (...) enough written on this blog, especially about Trauma Informed Care as recognizing the harm that can happen. All the guidelines call for discussing the use of a chaperone, hence you have a legitimate case. If nothing else, it will never happen to another patient. Even if you ask for no money other than lawyers fees, you can ask that he follow guidelines. Do this by asking for money, but settle for legal fees and him follow guidelines. -Banterings At , Anonymous said... Thanks to Dr. Bernstein

93. The Saatchi bill won’t find a cure for cancer, but it will encourage charlatans

that standard procedure. But as innovation is deviation, non-deviation is non-innovation. This is why there is no cure for cancer.” This statement is utterly bizarre. Evidently Lord Saatchi knows much more about how to sell cigarettes than he does about how to discover new drugs. The reason there is no cure is that it’s a very difficult problem. It has nothing to do with litigation Almost every medical organisation, and many lawyers, have pointed out the flaws in his ideas,. But slick, and often mendacious (...) will be lawyers, quacks and big pharma. “Innovation” is undefined –the bill is based on the myth that there exists a miraculous cure waiting to be found. Sadly, the probability of this happening is vanishingly small. To some extent, medicine is victim of its own hype. The public feels it has a right to demand the latest miracle cure. Too often, they don’t exist. There is no need for the bill because doctors can already prescribe whatever they want. The Medical Defence Union says it has no reason to think

And they should seek to recoup their adminstrative and legal costs against frivolous complainants like Walker and Lakin. …the point being that if people think complaining and shouting “lawyer” will get them an undeserved second or third chance at an exam resit, or a website taken down, or whatever, people will keep doing it.

In February 2004, the controversy resurfaced when Wakefield was accused of a conflict of interest. Brian Deer, writing in , reported that some of the parents of the 12 children in the study in The Lancet were recruited via a UK lawyer preparing a lawsuit against MMR manufacturers, and that the Royal Free Hospital had received (...) , the lawyers responsible for the MMR lawsuit had paid Wakefield personally more than £400,000, which he had not previously disclosed. Twenty-four hours before the 2004 Sunday Times report by Deer, The Lancet ' s editor Richard Horton responded to the investigation in a public statement, describing Wakefield's research as "fatally flawed" and said he believed the paper would have been rejected as biased if the peer reviewers had been aware of Wakefield's conflict of interest.
