The Good and the Bad

The below input from Cindy Muggli, Social Worker from Minnesota, suggests that perhaps I dwell too much on what needs fixing in health care and that I should at least occasionally focus on what is good about it.

Wow it’s depressing to hear about all the things that are wrong with healthcare. With so many studies you'd think someone would use that information to fix the problems. Could it be that part of the problem is the studies? I believe it’s nearly impossible to understand the issues unless you actually experience them, and the best way to experience them is to do the jobs. If you want to understand the issues faced by nurses, follow them around for a while; watch what they do, listen to what they talk about. Translate that to any individual job found in the healthcare system. You might even notice some GOOD things about healthcare. Oh and while you're at it, can you figure out why it’s still the norm for interns to work round the clock? That’s got to be resulting in some of the mistakes made in hospitals.
