Going to be more hospitals reduce staff not only because of pending cuts in Medicare but because of the 30 day between admissions rule for some diagnosis on 10/1/12 if you are covered by Medicare. Maybe those people can find employment in hospices or in the field of palliative care to which many of the patients will now be referred.

Hospitals receiving Medicare funds undergo rigorous inspections every year or so to make sure they’re in compliance with appropriate care standards, including at least minimal staffing patterns - Obamacare is going to lead to cuts in Medicare coverage not only up front by stealing $700 billion from Medicare funding, but also by causing hospitals and other practitioners to fall short in meeting required standards, leading to additional lost monies.....

This is OBVIOUSLY FALSE, and just cannot be happening.
The TV told me, over and over again, that anyone who said that Healthcare Companies would cut jobs as a result of Obamacare WAS OBVIOUSLY A RACIST!
HOW CAN THIS BE?

(Well, it is what the Sheeple voted for....)
MediCare policy also dictates a reduction in reimbursement (AKA negative incentive)if a patient is readmitted to a hospital within 30 days of discharge.
Yet no standards have been developed to cover chronic diseases or planned treatment that require discharge and re-admittance.

When I think of "forums where the members believe Medicare is a sacred cow and can't be touched", Free Republic would not normally be the first one that comes to mind.
Whoda thunk it???

Shocker of shockers! When prices are capped, supply is reduced. Unexpectedly of course.
