SCAM IN #Bengaluru: (THREAD)
After a detailed analys on the pattern, timing & mode of booking of 10,000
patients in the last 30 days, @Tejasvi_Surya offc has unearthed a dishonourable & an
unholy nexus among the reps of zonal #helplines, #BBMP officials & #hospitals. (1/13)

Back to reporting after ~4 weeks of battling the virus, being a caregiver to 3 in family, finding hospital beds, labs, struggling to seek info about hospitalised parents. All this in a small town. Was lucky though to have eventually found resources & recover. Many are not #Thread
The chaos, health infra in JSR, my hometown & a fairly developed city, has given a 1st hand experience of healthcare in small towns. Doesn't end at lack of infra. Sheer negligence & under-preparedness both by govt & ppl is beyond belief. Story same across tier 2&3 towns in India
#Covidcrisis has fiercely moved from big cities to small towns - those having limited experience of 1st wave, were complacent & poorly educated about the outbreak. Health infra broken, unable to take the load, processes are slowing. 2020 was just taken as a one-off historic event

Hospitals 🏥 & Doctors 🥼 are unable to detect cause of illness. Instead they are treating every patient as covid patient and giving them many doses of injections and medicines resulting in death of patients (1/n)
Instead of 2-3 dose , they re giving 6-7 doses.

2. Why are remedesvir so important ? Why doctors are prescribing only that dose ? Isn’t there some other alternative or other dose which is somewhat similar ?
Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories launched generic drug Remdesivir under the brand name Redyx in India on September 9.

Redyx will be available in the market for ₹5,400 per 100 mg vial.

The German Hospital Society is sounding the alarm in view of the corona-related operating restrictions: "If the federal government does not significantly increase aid, nationwide clinics will no longer be able to pay their employees'
salaries in the first quarter of 2021," says the President of the Hospital Society, Gerald Gaß, the editorial network Germany . "The money from the standard care is missing." The hospitals only had limited financial resources.
In mid-December, the federal government opened a new rescue package for the hospitals. According to the concept of the Ministry of Health,

I have been curious about the changes to ICU capacity capacity. The weekly data captured at……… now shows data through the week of 12/11. At first blush, the data doesn't appear to have changed much since the prior week. 1/n Image
2/n The aspect I am most curious about is the reporting of the data. An example of this is in reporting of ICU beds available and used. See below for one PA example: It is confusing to see the beds at this facility change during the weeks of 10/2 and 9/18 #covid #hospitals Image
3/n In contrast, note the reporting at this alternative #Pennsylvania hospital: While the average total #ICU beds increase slightly during the two most recent weeks, in contrast with the prior example, this hospital shows a percentage used < 100%. #LehighValley #ABE #Bethlehem Image

#NJ #COVID19 #Hospitals

The HHS file updates on Sun. nights, here's some of the things I've been tracking week over week.

First up, hospital Onset Covid. These are the # of people currently hospitalized who were in for 14 days for something else, but got Covid there.

/1 Image
Inpatient Utilization. This is the percent of beds that are currently filled. Currently running at about 75% capacity. This hasnt changed much across the last 6 months of the pandemic, regardless of how many Covid patients are hospitalized

/2 Image
ICU bed utilization (These are staffed beds), along with Covid utilization. % of ICU beds used for Covid has increased, but overall utilization has only risen by half. Does that confirm that some of these are people who would be in the ICU regardless?

We are now bearing the consequences from multiple failures by our health leadership, @adriandix, @jjhorgan, @VCHhealthcare, @PHSAofBC . #bcpoli #bc #COVID19BC
The first being the choice of managing #COVID19 for hospital capacity instead of aiming for #COVIDzero.
Then within the management regime several others failures. First: insufficient testing. Frequent testing at #LongTermCare, and #hospitals would have saved many lives. A large scale deployment of neighbourhood testing centres for anyone who wants it woudl have curbed transmission.

One of the main reasons we moved back was the deteriorating health care system in the US.

Everyone needs to understand there is a HUGE difference between "health care system" and "Medical Treatment".

"Medical Treatment" is what doctors do. Be doctors.

Diagnose. Treat. Cure
"Health care system" involves the huge mess surrounding the doctors under which they have to operate.

The layers and layers of bureacracy, third party payments, MBA bosses, pharma companies, medical malpractice, corporate work culture, VC partners etc.
Needless to say, the layers keep on increasing and move the patient further and further away from the doctor.

So now, the diagnosis happens only if the insurance company approves the check up or the tests or imaging.

The diagnosis has to happen within a stipulated time

As a physician, can say this about doctor culture in the U.S.: we are a socially stunted puerile bunch easily manipulated by sales & marketing ppl or by metrics of competition, obsessed with status, prestige, ego..

...not my doctor friends...but we hang out at the margins.
The high school level drama that plays out in hospitals, then the replica, amplified, on #MedTwitter is 😱 No wonder our profession kills so many patients when we are so busy policing on pettiness & ignoring standards of quality, safety, population health…
There are many reasons why I am hanging up the stethoscope, one of which is that I cannot in good faith go into any clinical setting and feel confident about “first do no harm” - The system is too misaligned, not driving quality, safe results

Then, the human dynamics are

Woah..that was freaky but familiar. Was lying down & decided to get up to take pain meds for #endometriosis and #fibroids and it felt as painful to get up as the day after surgery. In kitchen, sweating, lightheaded. Quickly squatted to avoid passing out holding onto fridge door
..which swung open..but I did not fall. Then once head feeling better, stood up long enough to take meds...then walked, wobbly and lightheaded to chair. I can't quite feel my palms but that will come back. This probably gets to be called 10/10 pain..but maybe really an 8/10
Great..and a migraine too..scotoma.. taking a migraine med and lying down. Man, when it rains it pours.

Mother Nature is such a misogynist.

SO glad I did not decide to rent a car and try to go Finger Lakes this weekend to see peak foliage.

The only way to solve #surprisemedicalbills is with a #fairIDR. But we need to get to the crux of this #SMB issue.

☑️ Everyone agrees to take #patients out of the dispute b/w #insurer & #doctor.
☑️ Everyone agrees to let the 2 parties negotiate the bills if the initial...

payment is deemed to be unacceptable.
☑️ Everyone agrees that there must be a fall back to a neutral third party (i.e., an #IDR entity).

⭐️BUT, what is disputed is whether this IDR will be a fair process where both sides can equally make their case for what is the most...

appropriate amount for that non-contracted service OR whether the IDR will be rigged and so unfair that the insurer will always win the dispute.

Many IDR proposals, sadly, are unfair, pointing the IDR to primarily consider the contracted rates #health insurers make up...

According to a media report, German hospitals are keeping fewer and fewer beds free in their intensive care units for patients who are seriously ill with the novel corona virus, despite the increasing number of infections.
As reported by the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung", the Baden-Württemberg state government decided this week that only ten percent of the beds should be reserved for these patients instead of 35 percent. It followed developments in other federal states.
In Berlin, only ten percent of the beds have been reserved for Covid patients since June, Lower Saxony followed in mid-July. In Bavaria and Brandenburg, hospitals no longer have to keep intensive care beds free for Covid patients since the summer,
