We get everyone makes mistakes, but since we make everything about money, professionals often miss the signs. Doctors sometimes seem to ignore what their patients are telling them. So they give them a quick look over and give them a faulty diagnosis. Instead of checking them thoroughly, as to what the patient described. Sending them on their way, only for the patient to have to come back worse than before. That is when hospitals should be fined.
why not hold them accountable. They should go through a review process conducted by previous patients that determine the level of misconduct. If someone is in serious need of medical help they should not have to deal with unnecessary delays and stress. There are plenty of pill chasers out there and it is understandable that it could become difficult to determine who truly is need of care and who does not.
Yes, I think that when a hospital messes up on treating a patient then they should have to pay a fine for the mess up that they did. This would help a lot with people getting their medical procedures messed up by the hospitals that they are going to so they can heal.
I personally think that hospitals that have to re admit some patients should not pay a fine because it is not the patients fault that maybe the hospital was overcrowded. I personally think that hospitals that have to re admit some patients should not pay a fine because the patients are the ones that is getting re admit.
As matter of blanket policy hospitals should not be fined for having to re-admit patients for issues related to the original admission. However hospitals should be held accountable for the quality of the care they provide. This is best accomplished by linking medicare/medicaid payments rates to the quality of the hospital's care.
