And then there is THIS PIECE on how we can save $2.2 TRILLION in healthcare!!? STOP THE PRESSES, Obama. (Or arrest the Yahoo President, THEY published it, not ME) Here's a snippet that makes sense to me:
"Something as simple as hand-washing often can reduce the problem......'Sometimes doctors are the most difficult people to convince to do this,' said Clarke. 'The challenge here is that patients sometimes come in with infections which then spread in the hospital.'The stimulus bill signed by Obama earlier this year includes $50 million for reducing health care-associated infections."
Obama? Just WASH YOUR HANDS. That may work, but maybe it isn't QUITE expensive enough a solution, not QUITE so far-reaching? Sure, this is probably a simplistic solution, but maybe there are others which won't require a COMPLETE OVERHAUL? TRY SOMETHING EASIER FIRST, okay? We all promise we'll wash our hands more. Most of us would just plain like to wash our hands of this whole nightmare, anyway.
