To name and shame substandard healthcare?

Improving care by ‘naming and shaming’ hospitals or doctors remains a thorny issue


Via Emmanuel Capitaine
Steve Kingsley's insight:

As the author notes: "If one hospital, for example, is coding acute coronary syndrome differently from another hospital, the comparative data will not hold up well."  They and doctors, labs, etc. will, for practical as well as selfish reasons, unless clear and simple coding standards are developed and enforced.

Seeds on seeds on seeds: Why more biodiversity means more food security

Seeds on seeds on seeds: Why more biodiversity means more food security | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

2 November 2013, Grist, Gary Nabhan -- "Seeds banks and libraries provide an important resource for farmers hoping to hedge their bets in times of uncertainty. It's time for the rest of America to get on board.

 

Consumer demand in the U.S. has never been stronger for a diversity of seeds and other planting stock of heirloom and farmer-selected food crops, as well as for wild native seeds. One of the many indicators that the public wants alternatives to Monsanto is that more than 150 community-controlled seed libraries have emerged across the country during the last five years. And over the last quarter century, those who voluntarily exchange seeds of heirloom and farmer-selected varieties of vegetables, fruits, and grains have increased the diversity of their offerings fourfold, from roughly 5,000 to more than 20,000 plant selections. During the same timeframe, the number of non-GMO, non-hybrid food crop varieties offered by seed catalogs, nurseries, and websites has increased from roughly 5,000 to more than 8,500 distinctive varieties. ..."

Recovered Amish Girl will “Physically Fight” if Forced Back on Chemo

Recovered Amish Girl will “Physically Fight” if Forced Back on Chemo | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

A back-and-forth fight between the state and a 10-year-old girl with leukemia has been raging for awhile. Ohioan Amish girl, Sarah Hershberger, was brought into national view when it was learned that a legal battle ensued over whether her parents, Andy and Anna, had any right to choose a natural cancer treatment for her.


Via Hans Gruen
Steve Kingsley's insight:

Here is the MedPharma Complex at work:

 

Akron Children “Hospital” charged that she would die without the chemo (for a two-year duration) which was their reasoning for using the courts to force her back into chemotherapy. Of course, they actually had a much different motivation for keeping her on toxic chemo despite her previous weakening condition.

 

Dr. Robert McGregor, Chief “Medical Officer” had said:

‘We find ourselves in a situation where we feel legally and morally obligated to do what we think is in her best interest.’

 

But that argument about “moral obligations” was a cover-up: Sarah had been secretly enrolled in a medical research experiment to test new drugs on her. Losing her from the experiment meant a significant loss in funding to the tune of $1,000,000 if Sarah is not treated the full 110 weeks. The hospital has allegedly billed $130,000 for just five weeks of those treatments.

 

Is this sickening, or what?
