    I have to wonder if the fact that the newspapers Board consists of the heads of several area hospitals had anything to do with certain omissions from these kinds of articles or that they are written in a way much differently from how it is told. [/B]

    Whoa........ imagine THAT !!! Tell me the truth... is EVERYTHING for sale these days? I know I'm the eternal optimist, the idealist, the naive "trusting soul", etc., but D*** if it doesn't still p*** me off EACH and EVERY time when I hear this stuff ! Can't ANYBODY "do nice" anymore? Be honest? What about the@^%#^@ PATIENTS?
    Do the hospital boards TRULY NOT CARE about THEM ? (I know, I know...laugh at me all you want...) but it still breaks my heart (although I should know better by now), to have to believe it's really so. It's like everything within me screams out "NO!!! It CAN'T be so!!!" You may call it denial... I call it brokenhearted.

    The more we draw attention to the truth, this reality is one of the main reasons health care is in crisis here in the US... hopefully.. knowing the truth will give us the awareness to create change....

    I believe, it is in the truth that WE are empowered to know where to create change..

    I do hear your pain jnette..

    I do not think change comes over night.. but it has to start somewhere... and here... with honest communication, exchange of ideas, and the truth in reports and information.... we learn about what WE can do...
