  1. Do you think your work place should support healthy eating?
    At my facility there much talk of healthy eating, yet fried foods are in abundance. Fresh fruit/salad bar is unbelievably expensive. I bring my own most of the time.

  6. What if.....your Director has falsified his credentials?
    I'm thinking there is no ulterior motive, based on what I've read. I've looked up plenty of licenses. The information I get is how long (when) they were licensed and if they hold an advanced license...

  18. "You'll be hearing from my lawyer."
    Patients can threaten you with a lawsuit, but the real trick is if any lawyer will take it. They (lawyers) have to be able to recoup their investment (into a lawsuit). As long as you are following...
