Our corporate citizens don't care about the health of the American people...those citizens care about the capitalist laws and regulations that affect their ability to make profit.
Our legislators pass laws to make the few corporate citizens happy because those citizens give them $$.
As long as capitalism is the foundation of our health system, rather than prevention, treatment, and outcomes, American's will continue to have the worst outcomes and most expensive system on the planet.
Corporate health care groups will continue to lay off nurses as a way to insure their profits...even though people are hospitalized for NURSING care. They will continue to ignore the plethora of studies that directly link outcomes to nursing hours at bedside and minimize access to the very thing patients need because of the expense.
They will focus, instead, on whether or not the patients and families believe that their hospital stay was enough like a 5 star hotel to make them happy.
