The last time I was unfortunate enough to require hospital care, I stayed for a few hours and the hospital ran some routine tests. The bill ran into the thousands although the tests conducted were simple $75 clinical sample tests.

Private hospitals thrive on massive revenue, city subsidies and tax advantages. How often after all do you see a hospital having a "going out of business" sale? What would a used bed pad be worth anyway?

Hospitals who thrive on it's monopoly of the sick while receiving perks and incentives from public sources should be banned from releasing a patient into a potentially harmful environment that's incompatible with his/her ailments.

The fact that the hospital should be sued in order to compel the hospital into civilized health practices is an outrage. Our government has seen fit to regulate everything else in hospital operations, yet the user of those operations is beholden to the hospitals option of securing their welfare?

Perhaps a private hospital can't be forced to provide treatment, but it should certainly be required to insure that it doesn't release patients into an environment that is likely to make the condition(s) worse.

If it's true that the hospital made a commitment to change their practice and still has not, then I would expect (and hope) that the hospital will be sued senseless to established a precedent in this case that equals the apathy it has shown towards it's customers (patients). We'll be watching this case to see what the legal outcome is.

Those who paint the issue as a Religious issue (as the name Presbyterian means nothing - its private business).... or a political issue....the hospital is likely staffed with people from both political pursuations... aren't doing the issue any favors whatsoever.

Osolating people, by branding whole classes of people who aren't involved in what the hospital did is negligent and discourages valuable support from these groups.

If we accuse Dems of purpetuating this act, we basically drive them away from the issue... if we do the same with republicans - we drive them away... This issue needs MAXIMUM support from everyone who is receptive to caring. Those who want to play games with the story, only end up hurting the cause in the end.

Focus on the hospital. It's their failed policy and careless apathy that lead to the dumping of this man... and the more folks who speak out on it, the better!

I don't agree with criminalizing efforts like this. The government really needs to just let charities do their job. They need to get out of the way.

Well at least they brought him to a local shelter...however, they should have checked with the shelter to see if they had enough room first and then take him back to the hospital if the shelter did not...as it appears was the case. Since when did humanity become so selfish?

Fully agreed with your points on this post.

It's always nice to see money being given to a good cause by the very wealthy. No doubt cynics will say it's for tax purposes rather than him doing it out the goodness of his heart, but does it matter as long as the kids get the benefit? I don't think it does.

Thanks for the sane opinion. My friend and I were preparing to do some examination about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as informative as your site. I am very glad to see such information that I was searching for a long while. :)

Hey, probably I am being a little bit off topic here, however I had been reading your website and it appears outstanding!. I’m creating a site and attempting to make it interesting, however every single time I touch it I wreck something up. Did you build and style the website by yourself? Can a person with very little experience do it, as well as add frequent updates without messing it up? well, great information on here, extremely helpful.

What help will be provided to families who have already lost their homes? Our goverment only talks about assistance for those who are about to lose their homes.

The increasing number of homeless families in the U.S. is very alarming. Let's hope that the government is doing something good to resolve this concern.

死者·行方不明者約100人に上った台風12号による紀伊半島豪雨から2カ月が経過した。その間、死者·行方不明者や孤立集落が集中した奈良県十津川村や五條市大塔(おおとう)町は注目が集まり、復旧·復興に多くの支援も寄せられた。一方で、被害の深刻さや復旧の姿が伝わらず、風評被害に苦しみながら復興に向かっている被災地もある。
同県中部に位置する川上村は、県内で発生した約1800カ所の土砂崩れの中でも、人家に隣接した崩落としては最大規模で、土砂崩壊量が概算で東京ドーム1杯分に相当する大規模な土砂災害に見舞われた。土砂崩れの発生は9月4日午後5時半ごろ。役場の電灯が突然消え、近くの国道169号を大量の土砂が埋め尽くした。

ティンバーランド

ティンバーランド12日に判明した政府の社会保障分野の一体改革素案(骨子案)は、来年の法案提出を検討してきた受診時定額負担制度の見送りを容認するなど、負担増を先送りしようとする民主党の主張に大幅に譲歩する内容となった。公務員の特権に切り込むことが期待された被用者年金一元化でも、公務員の優遇措置の存続に道を開く文言が盛り込まれた。「公平な負担」を旗印とした社会保障改革の看板は大きくゆがみつつある。

 ティンバーランド骨子案は、病院を訪れるたびに患者が100円を上乗せして支払う受診時定額負担制度について「(導入見送りを掲げた)民主党ワーキングチームの報告を踏まえる」と記した。70~74歳の窓口負担の2割への引き上げでは「平成24年度の対応については調整」と、その後の引き上げに含みを残したが、党側の猛反発で撤回に追いやられるのは確実な情勢だ。
