This is frightening, scary movie frightening. Why? Because you have now entered the zone where physicians will ignore any subsequent illness or secondary illness afterwards of hospital admission because doctors do not feel responsible for it since that is not why you came there initially. An example of that would be if a patient has surgery and due to the several days in the hospital before the surgery, the tubes ect. inserted along the respiratory tract made the patient susceptible to pneumonia. This now means that the patient has to not only recover from surgery but to get over having pneumonia as well. A hospital may ignore the problem by stating that everything is ok despite the strained and gasped breathing from the patient. Now you say, if a doctor or nurse comes in to examine the patient how could this be overlooked? Simple, the doctor and nurse only focuses on the issue as to why the patient came to the hospital initially and not any secondary or other problems that have occured afterwards. Therefore, as long as the patient is recovering from the surgery, all is fine despite the problems the patient is having by struggling to breathe on his or her own. As a result hospital infections or infections patient's get from the hospital go ignored so that physicians and hospitals are not responsible for the patients regarding any lawsuit or complaint regarding the illness or any cause of death as a result.
Am I also in the zone of a teaching facility or hospital? Now, now they will say. "Don't blame the staff or hospital because they are there to make people well." You will be informed that you have entered the zone of life and acceptance because everything happens for a reason and things are not always in our control. Yeah, but why are these doctors and nurses paid an astronomical sum of money to simply come in and check on a patient and failed to realize that, there were breathing problems consistent with pneumonia and I only make $15 dollars an hour and up off the street by not having attended Stanford Brown knew right away something was wrong? What should I have done? Should I have requested payment for doing the job of each one of these doctors or nurses? Maybe I should have, because with all of that money I could have my healthcare premiums paid for, for a few years. If a physician fails to perform surgery or a procedure in a timely manner, in order to avoid complications of hospital infections and not checking on the patient while in the care of a hospital to ensure that no infection is present due to prolonged stay is certainly negligent.
Hospitals are mum on the subject of vitamins and certainly do not make much of an effort in providing them with the food they serve. This is probably because a doctor gets paid for a patient visit that includes prescribing medications. This of course justifies why a physician gets paid and then provides a reason as to why a person cannot cure themselves. A patient continues to see the doctor as a result and the situation continues in the hospital because if a patent gets sick while in the hospital they are given medication unless, they do not live. Then the doctor(s) and hospital responsible will get theirs. Since the medication is prescribed by a physician and provided by the hospital or hospital pharmacy, the patient continues to see the doctor as a result and the physician and hospital continue to make money.
Hospitals should make vitamins available to patients during their stay so that harmful infections and illnesses that can lead to death can be avoided. Food service should also offer multivitamins and vitamin C along with meals either in liquid or pill form. They give you pain killers damn near any way you want. If the patient is not eating anything, vitamins should be dispensed by IV drip. This would avoid a lot of unnecessary illness, lawsuits and deaths. A hospital may be prone to bacteria and infection but that does not mean patients have to suffer as a result.
