Hospitals

Hospitals engineer plans to make insurance companies obsolete


Thanks to the train wreck of the government's Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare, large regional sick care providers and hospitals are sniffing the air for solutions that cut out insurance providers completely.

Has a plague already arrived? 205 Americans die each day after acquiring superbug hospital infections


If a jumbo jet crashed into the ocean every single day, it would roughly equal the number of Americans who die each day following superbug infections acquired at U.S. hospitals. Far from being some hyped-up scare story, that's actually the conclusion of none other than the CDC, which has now publicly warned that 1 in 25 hospital patients gets infected and tens of thousands die each year.

Hospitals, Unsafe at any Speed


It was over a quarter of a century ago that I first started talking about "the missing statistic"--those people who die from complications from their hospital visit, but not during the visit itself. If someone is treated for heart problems at a hospital, for example, and is sent home only to die later at home as a result of what happened in the hospital, it doesn't count against the hospital's record for treating the disease--even if the patient dies in the ambulance on their way back to the hospital, as long as they don't actually die in the hospital itself. This means that there are many more people dying as a result of their hospital visits than tally in the statistical sheets.

New research: Copper kills superbugs and other hospital-acquired infections


Scientists have found there's a way to dramatically prevent serious, life-threatening infections-- including those caused by especially dangerous and hard-to-treat superbugs. It doesn't involve Big Pharma drugs or toxin-laden chemical treatments. Instead, the germ-busting substance is the metal copper. A new study has revealed that using copper surfaces in hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs) can slash the number of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) by almost 60 percent.

Widespread hospital infections by antibiotic-resistant CRE bacteria prove the danger of U.S. healthcare facilities


A clever opponent attacks precisely where its enemy is most vulnerable, but don't expect it to just stop there. In what may soon become the newest, most fatal consequence in the marriage of conventional medicine and irresponsible, narcissistic technology, an emerging family of drug-resistant bacteria, that's been quietly preying on patients of hospitals and nursing homes for more than a decade, are gaining strength, making headlines and raising concern across the country.
