    In checking out my injuries, at the largest hospital chain in Texas, they only did xrays and MRIs of the left side of my body. I fractured my pelvis and when dismissed was referred to a 'Rehab Center'. This was very interesting. My insurance was paying for a private room and at 9 p.m. they brought in another bed and placed an 80 year old female and her family remained until 11 p.m. Oh, I forgot one thing, I arrived at 4 p.m. and didn't get any dinner that night.

      The next morning I got no breakfast. I did get an escorted tour of the place and I can assure you very few patients appeared to be able enough to even perform any rehab procedures. The lady in my room had a guard person watching over her as she couldn't hold her head up.

        Are you surprised I was walking out of there at lunch time (when I didn't get my third missed meal)? They never answered the call light until you lost patience. I get better treatment at home from my little dog Fred. He at least sits on my lap.

          Now let's hear it for the ultimate insult. Yesterday I went to see my Orthopedist (who hadn't been alerted I was in the hospital just down the street from his office). He found I have a fracture in my right leg and flew into a fit over the fact I've been walking (if you want to call it that) on this fractured leg). I'm going for an MRI on the right leg today. That was completely overlooked when I fell in July.

            I've not even had one pain pill since I left the hospital. Pain pills are bad for you I'm told .Fred thinks I'm nuts because I squeal every time I put weight on my right leg.

              I'm afraid this is indicative of how seriously low care is getting in our hospitals since they insisted their staff get the vax or resign. I'm not being ugly, but my nurses were from China, Somalia, Viet Nam, and India.

                The majority of the medical services 'industry' doesn't deliver any useful medical service.
                Many who actually deliver medical 'service' have been brainwashed and/or bribed into
                ignoring their oath to do no harm and are addicting their patients to drugs that only mask
                symptoms and do nothing to cure what is wrong.
                The oath is now:
                Get all the patient's (and his family's) money and use up their insurance before
                sending the patient to the dump to die. Never use any treatment not approved
                by the drug dealing pharma companies.

      You can thank Obamacare. It's regulated and wrecked everything. This is what government directed / rationed care looks like and it will only get worse.

      Thanks John McCain you asshole. Rot in hell.

        I agree. I had private insurance for $150 a month UNTIL obamacare. They it tripled , the copays went up, the deductible went to $1000.

        We trust government with education, medical care, transportation, roads, the dollar, and so many things they just mess up and just want more money to fix what they hae screwed up. I want government OUT. I am done with it.

    After I spent 8 weeks with my Dad in the hospital a few years ago (pre-covid), I feel for anyone who requires hospitalization. There are some very dedicated nurses and staff, but in my experience they are in the minority. The patient NEEDS an outspoken family member to advocate for the patient, and make sure they get the required care. I especially feel for those who were patients during covid when no visitors were allowed. I strongly suspect many were literally neglected to death.

    Have you heard about Candace Owens, and her recent hospital experience?
    While she was giving birth to her child, the hospital tried to coerce her into unnecessary tests and drugs. When she declined, they harassed her and threatened her with CPS.

    I have been going to Mayo Clinic in Arizona for years. In the past 3-4 years I have noticed a distinct lowering of medical care. I dont blame them, as costs have gotten out of hand, but its a sign of the times.

    Remove the state from manipulating the hospital's activities, Allow the insurance companies to compete nationwide. Privatization and competition will solve these things.

    I feel very fortunate with regard to medical treatment. I think I made the best possible choice retiring to Oklahoma City, as it's an outstanding center of medical technology.

    When I needed a partial knee replacement, I was diagnosed on a Tuesday, and had the operation the next day. When I needed a pacemaker, that was taken care of immediately. I've never had a delay in treatment of any serious problem, and can get an appointment with a specialist within a few days.

    Physical therapy is nearby, for post surgery recovery, and I live a couple of blocks from a healthy living center for seniors. I work out there several times a week, and am in better shape than I've been in 30 years.

    Maybe Oklahoma hasn't been corrupted yet, as I've always been treated with courtesy, care, and respect, both as an inpatient and outpatient.

    Everything has gone to hell! Mediocre healthcare has taken a nose dive into the depths of the deepest rabbit hole in this country.

    So, are you saying your butt is beautiful? (just imagining how you would know that)...Laughing My, not so beautiful, off!... at the moment. (think shriveling grape)

    Sincerely,.. hoping that you Are getting better.

    My husband was in the ER this week, extreme dizziness, could not stand. Well, they ran brain scan, heart tests, and finally found a bladder infection, with perhaps a middle ear issue. Did IV antibiotics and sent him home with Rx. We are a small town, Ohio. I think we have to be our own advocates. Sad but true, the average MD has and iIQ of 110 now, same as teachers. Tehy do not usually do homework on drug nor pandemics, they listen to AMA. Tehy never got the covid19 shot right, it erases the immune system, masks are ineffective. I ased a medilacl professional this week if he had read the large German research on the vaccine,, he had not even heard of it, much less read it, I did. They concluded vaccine erases the immune system, but also, causes heart damage and incrased cancer rates. That does nto inclclude the blood clots. We are woefully on our own, with the fact half of them have I!a under 110.

      Excuse me?
      Teachers at 110 IQ?
      Maybe if the government has graded them on the curve like they do the inflation rate.
      I'd be surprised if they average 100.
      I agree on many doctors.
      They couldn't cut it at research and the scientific method. More like the brainwashed bias method.
      But most of the public feels their doctor is the exception.

      Sorry to hear about your husband's health.
      I hope you get him back to full speed quickly.

        Thank you, husband is on meds and feeling better, after reacting to the first Rx!
        Actually, I have met so many teaches who say they hate to read. in 1985, the average IQ for teachers was listed as 120, but that seemed a stretch on the ones I was seeing. Most recent show 110, but they do not have common sense nor reasoning ability. Even doctors, I have not rund into one who has done his own research on anything Covid19, just follow AMA! I have a freind who is an RN marrid to a doctor, but when I asked if she had read the German research study form last Dec. on vaccine damage to immune system, neither had, they read the Fauci mask study. I was able to read both studies with a bio\ology major. They just do not want truth it seems.Or it is easier to be sheep.

          In the case of the younger ones, many may be so under water with debt their choice is toe the line (and lose their moral souls) or lose everything financially.
          It looks more like a plan to enslave as facts emerge every day.

            You may be right, definitely enslave the younger one, to be slaes to one wolrd gov., but likely depopulated the middle to old age one, likely via vaccines. This is global, no doub about it. After I read the one world doc. with depopulation figures for 80 countries,which was followed by a UN release cheering thye had 100 world leaders on board with depopulating theircountries. We know the goal, just shocked it is working.
