Here is the bag 'o pills brought in by a very nice gal tonight. This gal gets her care at the VA. There are some fantastic docs at the VA. Since their system is high on procedure and protocols it is light on personal responsibility on the doctor side. It's not that the docs don't want the personal responsibility, it's that the system doesn't allow for it. Worse, patients often see different providers at every visit. In other words, it's a lot like getting your primary care at the ER, which is what lots of folks do today. Here is the result. Half of these expensive and dangerous medicines are duplicates. No doctor-patient relationship. This gal is very sick. She will be admitted but guess what, the VA is 'full'. We are admitting her here but we don't know jack shit about her history and the VA medical records department is closed for the night. This is what the government does with health care. Do you want this for you and your family? I think not.
