PENNSYLVANIA HOSPITAL WILL STOP DELIVERING BABIES...O Care
#1
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/...obamacare/

Quote:A southwestern Pennsylvania hospital will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.

The hospital delivered about 200 babies each year since restarting its obstetrics program in 2005.

Officials aren’t sure how many jobs will be lost.

Its already been getting bad, now its just getting worse.

When I had my last child, five years ago, the hospital I delivered in was having overcrowding problems because other local hospitals were closing down maternity wards...hospitals just cannot continue to deliver babies for the cheap government program prices they're getting anymore. And now its just getting worse.

I remember being worried because I had heard about some women having to labor in the hallways because there weren't enough beds for them. Thankfully I didn't have to worry about that, since I arrived in the ER for heart issues and then got induced, but I did have to spend the whole night in the ER before a bed became open.....

Glad I'm done having kids because its only getting worse, and fast.

Humans were having babies long before hospitals existed. Might be time to revisit the midwife programs and give them more traction.

High risk deliveries will always be a problem. OB-GYN practices have always been high liability practices. I look for more docs near retirement age in all specialties to throw up their hands and walk.

Obamacare can mandate whatever the hell it wants, but practitioners still need to exist to provide the care. A lot of docs are pissed off . . . unintended consequences can be a bitch, unless the intent is to begin eliminating care for some segments of the population in order to provide care for others.

I enjoy every minute of it.

But, but, but what about the cheap healthcare for everyone where all of our needs are provided for by the government! They shouldn't be allowed to not practice! They should go into debt (what is that, by the way???) so we can get the goods we were promised when we voted for Obama the Great!!!!!!!!! Rolleyes

Some asked for it, and now they are getting what they asked for... it just wasn't what they expected.

You want cheap healthcare? I will deliver babies. Never done it before. Have no idea what to do. But how about this. $20, I deliver any baby.

This is exactly what it is going to come down to. If I deliver your child now, in three years when shit is real bad, I'll do open heart surgery for $50.

You need to make that into a commercial in the style of Crazy Eddie.

How about we just start making people pay for their healthcare? (What a concept). At least something. I mean, people pay tens of thousands of dollars in healthcare premiums and they STILL often will have to pay $150 for an ER trip...or $20 for a doctor visit....or $500 for a maternity stay. ON TOP of premiums. So why can't people on government care pay copays? Or something? The reason they clog up the ER's is because its too easy and its free. When I know I have to pay a hundred bucks to go, I use it judiciously. It should be that way for EVERYONE.

Health care isn't a "right"....just read history. It was up to an individual doctor to decide how much care to generously give free, or what to receive in lieu of payment, or how much to charge. Or people just didn't call doctors. What's the crime in that? I mean yeah, we're all used to our nice health care, including myself, but we are going to lose it soon anyway, at the rate we're going.

That's exactly why forcing people to have health insurance is a good idea. No business should be required to provide something for 10 people, only get paid in full for 5, get stiffed by 2, and rely on the government to pay a pittance for the other 3.
