Warning ⚠️ ⛔️ : Uncomfortable Thread 🪡
My tweets lately have focused on my daughter’s #healthcare at @SanfordHealth & our struggle to access appropriate & compassion care where her agency is not taken away. I know the threads my be uncomfortable for some particularly if you 1
are a #medical professional. I am aware that many are thinking 💭‘what’s the back story’, ‘something they did caused this no #medical facility or #medical #professional would partake in this’. I get that. There IS a back story. A child at 2 wks having her 1st #hereditary 2
#pancreatitis flare. In 1st grade undergoing her 1st #transplant. In 6th grade undergoing 2nd #transplant. Complications, no real follow up. Complications being ignored. Physicians both on #transplant team as well as others questioning her symptoms, her #pain. Dismissing & 3

Incredible piece in @propublica on the dark underbelly of #healthcare #insurance — making profit margins off of denying claims (aka healthcare) to its members when they need it most…
If time is money, this is what @Cigna thinks the health of its members is worth: 1.2 seconds Image
It’s not just @Cigna, it’s all the big insurers — @UHC @AnthemBCBS @Aetna - multiple lawsuits filed for the amount of denials they have, but it’s more profitable for them to rampantly deny claims and settle the class action lawsuits later than it is to just do the service they……

Today’s #JobsReport was very solid, but like is often the case in the movies, it’s very hard for the sequel (today’s report) to match such an unexpected hit (January’s revised 504,000 jobs gained).
Still, a nonfarm #payroll gain of 311,000 jobs is quite good and having 815,000 jobs created so far this year after the #economy has already created 12 million #jobs over the past two years is pretty amazing in its own right.
Further, the 3-month moving average of 351,000 jobs, after a 12-month moving average of 362,000 jobs gained per month is also pretty remarkable, particularly after the market-implied pricing of the terminal #FedFunds rate has move up 500 basis points (bps) in a year.

The establishment creates this problem by first denying the disease, creating a vacuum that quickly fills up with untested treatments & questionable cures. Then they go about trashing their victims who desperately need relief, and the doctors who are willing to treat.
#BTDT #Lyme
It is both infuriating & heart wrenching to watch this scene play out again, with some of the same establishment players engaging in narrative control. Go to ~48:00 for IDSA creep Paul Auwaerter’s word salad tossed at Congress, thx to my friend @PowerOfNeo…
That they have denied, conflated & confused for DECADES #LymeDisease #ME #mecfs #cfs #fibromyalgia and passed them off as psychiatric, and now are doing the same with #LongCovid, should tell you all you need to know about #PublicHealth’s intentions.

The #russian embassy in 🇬🇧 tried to mock @RishiSunak for legislation that prevents migrants from crossing the Channel on small boats.

They didn’t mention that 🇷🇺 is responsible for the largest European conflict since WWII that caused immense suffering and destruction in 🇺🇦.
The russians are responsible for 14,000 Ukrainians #killed in 2014-2022 and 8,173 more Ukrainians killed since 2022 (@UN_HRC). No one knows how many Ukrainians were murdered in #Mariupol, #Volnovakha, and other occupied cities, towns, and villages. 2/5
The russians are responsible for 8,104,606 #refugees (@UNRefugeeAgency) and 7 million internally displaced people (@Kabmin_UA_e).

So far, the russians have #destroyed 2,660 and 1,200 #education and #healthcare buildings and facilities (@MoH_Ukraine, @MON_UKRAINE). 3/5

#MondayMorning 🧵

Repeat after me:

Patient burnout is an undocumented public health crisis. 🚨
2) #PatientAdministrativeBurden (PAB), or the work that individuals need to do to get the care they need, is of epic proportions, especially in the context of chronic illness, multiple co-morbidities, life-altering, and life-limiting conditions. 📈

#MissionImpossible #PtExp
3) Patients are buried in:
👉 piles of paperwork
👉 fragmented, manual, poorly coordinated workflows
👉 massive losses of time in waiting and navigating uncharted, unsupported care journeys

We have now moved into committee! SB23-111 is for #worker protections & makes sure that public employees can engage in the political process like everyone else

Public employees are nurses, teachers, public service workers & EMT drivers #copolitics

YES ON SB23-111 👨‍⚕️
The right to strike for public employees is only possible after presenting to a board - there is not a avenue for public employees to #unionize or #organize if they think they need too

We are now hearing from a Nurse who tells us 'this impacts you all cause you seek health care'
We have testimony from @DenverHealthMed worker - who says "you do not need a heart beat in a seat, you need a capable health care worker when you are seeking health care"

"we need to level the playing field between our bosses & unions" #copolitics

YES on SB23-111 🔥

🚨"चहा"सोडा आणि 100 वर्ष जागा म्हणे🚨

काही दिवसांपूर्वी @dr_prashantsb यांनी @qhaj यांचा Video Post केला,त्याचं Caption होत "प्रत्येकाला 100 वर्ष जगायला मदत करा"
-चहा खरंच विष आहे का?
-चहा ने आयुष्य कमी होतं का?
-चहा मधील Caffein ची एवढी भीती का?

-पाहुयात या Thread मध्ये👇
🔶Dr हेमंत म्हणाले "गरजेपेक्षा जास्त 1 चहा आणि 6 Biscuits रोज खाल्ले तर 1 किलो वजन वाढते"
