Clearly you are talking about NURSING failures, which is sad and scary and true. Beyond that, would you really want your father to be "put down?" Can you make that life-ending call? It's that ethical question that stumps health care providers in the end. Who can make that call--and who will sue if it's made? I hear your frustration, I really do. But what solution do you propose? Hospice is suggested, for instance... Meanwhile it's unfair to compare doctors to DVMS (and God bless them both!) because MDs work under such different conditions. (Back to that who will make the call and who will sue who dilemma...). Consumers (i.e., patients & family members) would be wise to be as proactive as possible. It's no secret that hospitals can suck the life (and $$) out of you and yours. Make your own choices.

On New Hospital Helipad Sees Heavy Action
Posted on February 10 at 10:35 a.m.
It's your choice to live in Isla Vista, an incredibly densely populated area. The residents of Oak Park did not choose to have their neighborhood by helicopters. Their "choice" was revoked by careless urban planning and greedy hospital administrators. Do some research on the politics and payola of "trauma" centers. Re the "selfish" argument, who were the players behind the "selfish decision" to choose Cottage over Goleta Valley when either one could have been upgraded and one, GVH, is obviously easier to access by land, sea, or air, than the other!
On Cottage Announces Neighborhood Meeting About Helicopter Noise

And to think they could have put this helipad at Goleta Valley Hospital, along with upgrading its facilities for trauma care, where there are open agricultural fields and flight paths already established. Who paid off who to make DOWNTOWN Oak Park an intelligent choice for helicopter landings, and who is going to pay existing homeowners for their loss in property value? I guarantee that noise is a big negative on resale! I've heard the birds where I live (not close) at 4 AM and it's been disconcerting!

LOONPT - you've certainly earned your name. Meth (pure or not!) most certainly DOES cause hallucinations... (I suppose you never inhaled either?)

Pray for Kelli and her children. The "driver" has met his dark fate. But the living struggle on.

A fine idea! The Pacific Northwest is a great summer destination! (Not so sure about Santa Barbara given the summers we've had lately...)

A very good reason I get past big trucks ASAP on the freeway! I hate them!!! (And I will never linger near one on a bridge again!!!)

46 and 48 - I don't care if the girl looked 18, what are these guys doing trolling for such young meat? Really, guys, can't you find someone your own age? Pathetic.

I remember a time when a friend caught a halibut right off his surfboard.... I suppose that is illegal now too... Who the heck is going to police all these checkerboard square no-go zones?
