It always struck me as weird. My dad for instance is in a Nursing home right now. On monday they took him to ER in Congestive Heart Failure. Why couldn’t the Nursing home…operated by the same brand of Nuns that operate the hospital. All computers are tied in…why couldn’t my dad have the NH meds sent to the Hospital so he doesn’t get charged twice for the same medications. WHY…we do have a greedy hospital system…maybe if they have their own equipment and medications…they should be allowed to use them her in the US. why does the Respiratory Department have to bring my dad a CPAP machine, when he has a 6 month old one that works perfectly. The one they bring to the room is the same damn Machine.
Maybe some of that is wise. and cost effective.
