There is a lot more research being done and new devices being developed for more robust care but the services are advancing quickly. Contact me if you would like any referrals. ...Read more

Can someone help explain what the National standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services in healthcare & healthcare is? thanks!

Can someone help explain what the National standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate services in healthcare & healthcare is? thanks!

Go to a lawyer when : Sick! They should be able to help you. If a doctor cannot understand the language the patient is speaking it will be hard to deliver health care! Also, depending on the cultural group that the patient grew up in, different ideas are interpreted very differently and you have to be aware of them and take that into account. "hot diseases" and "cold diseases", etc. that is cultural awareness. ...Read more

Inquiry for school paper:


1.  What are your professional ethics?
 2.  What ethical dilemmas do you face in the work place?

I suggest talking to your family, friends, local physicians--look for retired physicians and nurses who will have more time to talk to you so that you can write a nice paper. Good luck. ...Read more

Please see below: Noted several of your posts. Sounds like u r pretty frustrated & angry. Perhaps at a provider &/or insurer. I'm not sure anything we can say here will help much.

Is there gender bias in health care?

Is there gender bias in health care?

Sometimes: Sometimes certain diagnoses are applied to more women vs men, and problems can be missed because our index of suspicion may not be high enough. For instance, heart attack symptoms may differ in men vs women, but both genders will be just as sick. Some doctors may also assume that women are "hysterical" rather than understanding they may have a complicated health problem. We have a lot to learn. ...Read more

Why do so many medical offices ask for unnecessary & intrusive personal information (ssn, drivers licenses) unrelated to medical records?

Why do so many medical offices ask for unnecessary & intrusive personal information (ssn, drivers licenses) unrelated to medical records?

Required by law: It is required by law & insurance contracts that they have with companies & that you signed with those same companies. They need to make sure you are who you say you are & that they have proof. Also, if there is any legal question in the future, they can prove that they verified your identity. Finally, insurance companies use this info to track your health & put it into a central database. ...Read more

As embodied souls connected to a mind, complex+fragile brain controlling a complex+fragile body with millions of orders/sec, issues of health/disease are integrated at all levels, not just body ; not just reactions to body issues/handicaps/pain.

We also have a mixed population with many delaying care. ...Read more
