    O, it's much worse than that. It was just a small example of my most recent interaction with them. My last workplace is refusing to file the paperwork for my license renewal, so the board suspended my license without informing me. Now they will not give it back until this place fills it out and will not even send them a letter to inform them it's required and legally the workplace should do this. I had to go to a nursing program similar to this site to inform me of a lawyer to contact since the board just said it's my problem not there's and hung up. I found out my license was suspended due to a job I applied for calling and informing me I didn't even have a license. Pretty sure they legally have to inform you when they take your license. They took it 4 months ago and I had no clue. I've been a nurse for years and have never had a problem with the renewal process.
    Much of this doesn't make sense; why is your workplace filing paperwork for your license renewal? More importantly, you've made it pretty clear that your license wasn't suspended during it's active period, it wasn't renewed. The responsibility is on you to confirm your license renewal has gone through.

    Haha, everybody hates admissions.

    Today my coworker in PACU had an ICU nurse trying to argue & insist that the pt couldn't be ready for discharge to the unit because they had only been in recovery 30 minutes. Bwahaha!! It was only a TEE/cardioversion & the pt came from ICU & that nurse to begin with. Yeah, let's just keep him here long enough to bump him (& his bill) up to the next level because it was too quick for you.
    Why would his bill "bump" up?

    I don't think it's all that complicated; if people are always leaving because it's a ****** place to work, then make it a less ****** place to work.

    Your anger is better aimed in the proper direction. Email you representative to close our borders...rather than be insulting to few of us who prefer a natural lifestyle. Take care.
    You're right, you're not an "anti-vaxer". You're racist.

    Do you know how much money was wasted on ACA (web site, inception, ongoing, etc)? Take that money and each "legal" American citizen could have had a HSA (cash value) of one or more million U.S. dollars. Yes, American's would be rolling with that sort of money.
    You keep repeating that number, you need to check you math. Even using a high-end reported amount for the website at $2.1 billion, that amount divided among all "legal" Americans is $6.58, not "more than a million US dollars".

    Quote from pmabraham
    When I talk to patients in our geographic area, either they don't have any insurance (because even with subsidies they cannot afford ACA-based insurance) or they don't dare use it because they cannot afford the high out of pocket expenses (often 10K or more). Single payer will not fix that.
    Single payer would involve whatever deductible rates we decide to use, so there's nothing that keeps it from being affordable. Complaining about high deductibles seems really odd coming from you, since you've been arguing that we essentially should pay for all our healthcare services directly, yet you avoid questions about what happens when someone needs care beyond what they can afford independently which would suggest you're not opposed to insurance kicking in at some point. That's already how it works, people pay for what they can independently (aka their deductible) then when they've spent that amount on their own insurance kicks in beyond that. So are you saying deductible should be higher or lower?

    Preventative treatment delays the "when." And with diabeetus, it isn't a matter of "if," it's a matter of "when." Either way, the "when" has to be accounted for. The preventative treatment is simply an added expense.

    I would also advise against universal coverage because the added taxes would make the cost of living too high for some of the middle class. I consider myself to be in the upper middle class and am fortunate enough to comfortably afford my own place. My Canadian counterparts to the north aren't so fortunate since they live in igloos.

    I believe that because Canadians live in igloos and we 'Muricans live in houses, universal healthcare is detrimental to the quality of lives of North Americans.
    You believe that regardless of how well a person manages their diabetes their risk of stroke, DKA, etc is exactly the same?

    Quote from NOADLS
    The biggest downside I can think of is personal accountability. If you decide to make poor choices and either fatten up or / and succumb to "diabeetus," the taxpayer is paying for your bad decisions. This would encourage people to make poor decisions related to their own health. There is also a side effect that a lot of people wouldn't think about. If the obesity or overweight % of population increases, people who like skinny women would plunge into a state of depression because there would be less of them around. The costs associated with depression would also be flung at taxpayers.
    How do you think that would be different than how it already works? If someone doesn't adequately treat their "diabeetus" and ends up needing treatment for DKA, for heart attack, stroke, etc, who do you think pays for that now? That cost is already shared by everybody else. The only difference with universal coverage would be that people would at least have the opportunity to get the treatment that would avoid those far more costly treatments in the first place.
