Informed today by a patient, whose husband is in Mercy Medical Center and about to be discharged, that she attempted to find a local nursing home to take him. She was told he was too “complicated” for them to take care of. Evergreen Family Medicine’s MD basically told her that he would get him accepted . . . but then sheepishly came back claiming they will discharge the patient to home care only. Then that doctor was reported as saying “he just can’t stay here to die.” Mercy already screwed up earlier when they sent him home after an ER visit when he should have been admitted due to pneumonia . . . guess what? He did get admitted two days later with an infection that required multiple specialists to help treat. Poor care and so much more.
Medical records sent for the wrong patient by the clinic. When notified of their mistake, Optimal Health refuses to respond.
Letter to Dr. Harry Taylor and Shannon Suhr, NP, at Aviva Health regarding worsening cognition and physical coordination of one of their patients that they seem to over-medicate without proper monitoring.
Dr. Hoyne wastes patient's time "investigating" other doctor's practices by grilling them on how they operate, what they charge, and more. Yet he charges the patient's insurance for his time that has nothing to do with true patient care!
The FDA lacks any real “teeth” to do their job.
Per a letter I wrote awhile back, I see that the Oregon PDMP is finally reporting the refills properly per my suggestion.
Pulled out some records to check some things and refreshed myself with something I had been meaning to post earlier but got distracted.
