    Princeton Community Hospital in rural West Virginia will scrap and replace its entire computer network after being struck by the cyberattack paralyzing computers globally. The cyberattack, known as Petya, froze the hospital's electronic medical record system early Tuesday, leaving doctors unable to review patients' medical history or transmit laboratory and pharmacy orders, said Rose Morgan, the hospital's vice president of patient care services. Officials were unable to restore services, and found there was no way to pay a ransom for the return of their system. So, after consulting with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and cybersecurity experts, officials made the...

    I struck up a conversation with a health care professional. The subject turned to active shooters and the vulnerability of Yuma Regional Medical Center (YMRC). We were in the Yuma Regional Medical Center outpatient clinic. I was getting prepped for my daily dose of high powered intravenous antibiotic. The health care professional did a good job, and I complemented her. She said she had a lot of practice.  I agreed that performance on nearly everything improves with practice, but some people are just naturals at some tasks. I gave the example of a young man I took dove hunting....

  • Republicans in Colorado Senate willing to negotiate at critical junctures

    Prior to the start of the legislative session in January, Republican Senate President Kevin Grantham said restructuring a hospital fee to raise money for state services was off the table. Republicans prior to the session also pushed a familiar narrative of using existing tax revenue and fighting against any tax increases. But then came bills backed by prominent high-profile Republicans aimed at a tax increase for roads and a restructuring of the Hospital Provider Fee. While the $3.5 billion transportation proposal never gained enough GOP support to send the issue to voters, historic progress was made on the Hospital Provider...

    A 'superbug' fungus is emerging as a new menace in U.S. hospitals, mostly in New York and New Jersey. First identified in Japan in 2009, the fungus has spread to more than a dozen countries around the globe. The oldest of the 66 cases reported in the U.S. dates back to 2013, but most were reported in the last year. The fungus called Candida auris is a harmful form of yeast. Scientists say it can be hard to identify with standard lab tests. U.S. health officials sounded alarms last year because two of the three kinds of commonly used antifungal...

    Gunmen disguised as medics stormed a military hospital in Kabul early Wednesday, launching an hours-long attack that left 30 dead in Afghanistan’s capital. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack on Sardar Daud Khan hospital, which injured more than 50, a government official told Reuters. The attack began on the hospital around 9 a.m. local time, when a suicide bomber blew open the hospital gate, the Washington Post reported. Over the next seven hours, gunmen worked through the hospital floor by floor, opening fire on hospital staff as well as patients. Afghan security forces were dropped onto the...

    Based on the results of this year's study, if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities: Nearly than 89,000 additional lives could be saved; Over 61,000 additional patients could be complication free; Over $5.6 billion in inpatient costs could be saved; The average patient stay would decrease by half a day; Over 300,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days; Patients would spend nine minutes less in hospital emergency departments per visit. If the same standards were applied to all inpatient care, the impact would be even greater.

    Freepers, I need some help and prayers. The future daughter-in-law of a close friend was in a bad car accident late last week. By the grace and mercy of God she was not as seriously injured as orignally thought. However, the treatment she has received from the hospital she was taken to has been deplorable at best. She was air lifted to McLeod's Hospital in Florence, SC on Thursday February 9. She was admitted to the hospital that afternoon, and was left in the cervical collar the EMTs put on her until Saturday (it had dried and caked bodily fluids...

    As I was growing up, I lost my faith in both God and the Church.  There are many things that made me lose my faith, among them terrible stories I heard about the Catholic Church’s past. Most of today’s pagan youth imagine people being burnt at the stake whenever they hear people talk about Catholicism.  They are wrong, but it’s not their fault.  The Church’s enemies, among them the communists, have spread lies about the history of the Church and the content of the faith. One thing they never told you, and the mainstream media simply won’t tell you, I assume,...

  • Hospitals warn Trump and Congress of massive losses with Affordable Care Act repeal

    The nation’s hospital industry warned President-elect Donald Trump and congressional leaders on Tuesday that repealing the Affordable Care Act could cost hospitals $165 billion by the middle of the next decade and trigger “an unprecedented public health crisis.” The two main trade groups for U.S. hospitals dispatched a letter to the incoming president and Capitol Hill’s top four leaders, saying that the government should help hospitals avoid massive financial losses if the law is rescinded in a way that causes a surge of uninsured patients. The letter, along with a consultant’s study estimating the financial impact of undoing the Affordable...

    Hillary Clinton suffered a serious health scare over the weekend, nearly collapsing at a 9/11 anniversary event in Manhattan. We later learned she had been diagnosed with pneumonia and was canceling a number of events after being advised by her doctor to get some rest. In light of these events, it’s a little awkward that Hillary will be featured in next month’s issue of Women’s Health magazine.
