I am all for safer hospitals. MERSA is becoming prevalent throughout the country, mainly, in my opinion, due to neglect of health-care professionals. Mind you, I am not anti-doctor. My father was Assistant Director of the local VA hospital (administrative), and most of our friends were physicians. I know the burdens the health-care professional carry. However, I do believe there is a lack of safe care in many areas.

HOWEVER, I feel that the patient should be somewhat responsible for observation. Did the MD, RN, LPN, CNA wash their hands when entering my room? Did I ask what prescriptions are being administered and why? Did I ask why certain tests are being performed?

Donna (who is in total control of her health care....maybe that's why I am relatively healthy)
