Poor Care Delivery

November 2, 2011

Medicare is certainly sending healthcare providers a message. They will not pay for poor care delivery. An example of this is that they will no longer pay if a patient falls or develops a bed sore. I applaud this. We should not add to our patient’s demise by adding additional disease processes to the one the came in with. While it may be true that someone with low immunity could develop a nosocomial infection, it can not be tolerated that we leave them unsafe with the ability to fall and break a hip. My hospital has developed techs that sit “one on one” with demented or confused patients. This has drastically reduced the falls.
