I am reminded of salaryguru's horrible experience with his wife's ER visit. Sometimes you can't avoid going to the ER. In fact, more times than not I have had serious medical problems after normal doctor's hours, which are becoming shorter and shorter. Some of my doctors leave early Friday, some don't work Friday at all. My dentist works a 1/2 day on Thursday and not at all on Friday. My foot doctor only works 2 days in my area.http://www.aarp.org/health/doctors-hospitals/info-06-2010/wh...Avoid the Hospital in JulyWhy? New doctors and nurses report to work for the first timesnipOn or around July 1, newly graduated interns, residents, nurses and other new health care workers first report to work at many of the nation's hospitals, eager to start practicing medicine — on you. No surprise then, that quality of care in hospitals plummets, and medical errors increase, during the following month..........."But they also found that compared to others, July patients had higher rates of discharge to other long-term care facilities, as well as post-operative infection and surgical stitches failing," notes David Sherer, M.D., a practicing anesthesiologist and past director of risk management for a large insurance provider, who wrote the book Dr. David Sherer's Hospital Survival Guide.
