Healthy talk about health carePosted Thursday, August 30, 2007, at 7:47 AM
Comments on my recent post about President Bush veered off into a quite interesting discussion about medicine in the United States.
Let's expand on that. I have no strong opinions except:
*Americans should be able to import prescription drugs from other countries if they're available more cheaply.
*Anyone involved in any area of health care who causes the death or permanent disability of a patient due to incompetence or irresponsibility should be barred for life from that position.
*And full discipline records on all physicians should be freely available online.
Any thoughts on what you'd like to see in the new hospital under construction here? Thoughts on any other factor of area health care?
It's a healthy free-for-all today. Have at it...
