Perhaps that would kill several birds with one stone. Curb high education costs on deserving minds, increase our supply of doctors and well-care clinics, thus relieving the hospitals the burden of having to wade through all the stuffy noses and broken ribs.

    Just a thought.....
    Doctors aren't going to allow that, their rarity value contributes to their status and to their earnings. (not necessarily in that order) They will insist that they cannot cope with training increased numbers without detriment to their patients.
    Don't work out, work in.

    " May 31, 2008|Richard Winton, Times Staff Writer
    Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center on Friday settled allegations that it left a paraplegic man crawling around downtown Los Angeles' skid row in a hospital gown and with a colostomy bag by agreeing to pay $1 million and be monitored by a former U.S. attorney for up to five years.

    The resolution of the lawsuit marks the biggest settlement so far in the Los Angeles city attorney's efforts to crack down on hospitals and other institutions that "dump" patients on skid row. "

    The third link...
    " Diana Bonta, vice president of public affairs for Kaiser Southern California, said the hospital attempted to find a shelter for Reyes, but when that failed, it was determined that she would be taken to the Union Rescue Mission. Hospital officials are trying to find out why Reyes, who was in the hospital after suffering a bad fall, was left on the street still wearing her hospital gown and slippers.

    The incident violated hospital policy and will not occur again, she said.

    "We have a policy of treating our patients with compassion and care," Bonta said. "This should not have happened."

    Andy Bales, president the Union Rescue Mission, where Reyes remained, said the incident was the third in the past week in which security cameras caught taxis dropping people in the area. ... "

    That's what I said. We have a disorganized healthcare system, where people don't have PCPs and use ERs as clinics. That's what we were discussing.

    So then you have a double standard. It is not about turning the poor away but who turns the poor away.

    They were poor so she wants them to go to free clinics and leave her beds for those who can pay.

She was in terrible pain, complicated by the fact that she is allergic to all kinds of drugs, especially pain medicine. She finally had to fake a breathing problem just so they would give her a bed. I suppose our experience is the forebear of socialized health care. Get ready folks. It ain't pretty.
    It will only get worse. My 36 year old son is autistic and on medicaid. He has to go to the county health department. He has had a cough for 3 months now, we have taken him in several times. We are told it is a virus should go away.

    This is why they go to emergency rooms the medicaid doctors are overwhelmed and get paid almost nothing and it is reflected in the inferior care they get.

    Nobody "turns the poor away" they are directed to more appropriate, even better care.

    Have you ever been poor? By this statement I would guess not.
