The rule identifies eight conditions — including three serious types of preventable incidents sometimes called "never events" — that Medicare no longer will pay for. Those conditions are:
• Objects left in a patient during surgery
• Blood incompatibility
• Air embolism
• Mediastinitis, which is an infection after heart surgery
• Urinary tract infections from using catheters
• Pressure ulcers, or bed sores
• Vascular infections from using catheters
Is this rule is going to include Nursing Homes too. It should, I have seen a few Patients come from them with UTI's Falls, and Bed sore. You know they will find a way to pass the buck to the other patients. hmmmmm I can see it now I aspirin was 15.99 now at big blue hospital its 99.95 ahhhh the wonderful world of medicine you just got to love it.
Yesterday was the first day back to school and after working all night the last thing i was looking forward to was a 6 hour class on PPD and Infection control techniques. but i did good I did not nod off at all. one thing for all students to remember. RT/Medics rule number one caffeine is your friend. It will always be there and will never leave you. Till next time folks I hope to see you back again.
