    And yet, they never notice that tone.

    There’s a certain genius to Rita at times.

    Actually, I have to agree with Rita’s sentiment about bedpans.

    What! It’s not punishment enough to wake Ed up? Bedpans too?

    In the whole scheme of things, emptying bedpans is important. What if there was no one to do that task?

    Ick, we’d be back in the dark ages where people tossed that stuff out the window into the streets.

    It’s too easy to call her evil. She’s self-involved and oblivious to others- but in her own completely out of touch way, she thinks she’s the sensible and righteous one.

    Wait until she faces state licensing inspections, insurance claims adjusters, and required staffing and equipment upgrades. A hospital is a man eating monster that makes her software company look like a petting farm.

    Rita must have come across the business plan of Cancer Treatment Centers of America. To quote from a Forbes article: "It sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory: a secretive businessman founds a for-profit medical center to treat cancer. His hospitals offer conventional treatments but also sell highly questionable, unscientific treatments to vulnerable patients. These treatments help to increase profits. The businessman uses the profits from his cancer hospitals to support his favorite right-wing causes. Patients have no idea that the fees they pay for treatment help support these causes.

    It may sound unbelievable, but it’s true"

    Unfortunately it’s not a myth. In fact, it’s a lot worse than the one small example phritzg pointed out.

    Those of you who have, perhaps, had continuous and uninterrupted insurance coverage over the past twenty or more years, and who haven’t been seriously ill over the past six to eight years, might not realize the accelerated depth of charging models that hospitals now use, and that their profitability is now in excess of big oil and Hollywood combined.

    But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a good article from Time magazine by Steven Brill that goes into the numbers. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2136864,00.html

    Looks like the article is no longer free at Time.com, sorry about that. Here’s a link to a .pdf version: http://livingwithmcl.com/BitterPill.pdf

    Not surprised at that assessment. I have seen their commercials. Feel good medicine, important but one shouldn’t lie for the sake of it.
