Well, Shazam by Pat Conrad MD


Usually, a few paragraphs of ridicule, just to set the reader up, are warranted. I’m not going to bother this time. This train of absurdity has been coming down the tracks at us at slow speed for years, and organized medicine refused to get off the tracks, preferring instead to cooperate with the train. Enjoy. The best quote: “The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says it is looking at the readmissions penalty program and any unintended consequences it might be having.”

    It’s been called “dump the sick.” It’s a merry-go-round that happens whenever the games get going.
