How dysfunctional is the dem party and the people who vote for dems? Think about it---
Their two top priorities are gay marriage and abortion.
In other words, their endgame is a world without children.
Do I need to go into the implications of that?
And people still wonder why I call them moonbats.
Anyway, it show an overall positive rating of barely over 50% for the VA in aggregate. Some facilities higher, some lower. That's good? That sucks!!
AND, it's self evaluation. "If some body says poor, uh, that's positive. Only patient dies counts as not positive."
All I know is you are well educated but have chosen to retire quite early, as many other govermment workers have. There was an example on here of one person -gov worker -who uncovered substantial fraud. Good job by her.
Most are on the glide. No pressure, no perfomance. A waste of money.
Still, feel free to give out condoms or BC on the taxpayer nickel. You're already wasting why not follow through all the way.
Im still waiting for you to provide us with the studies published in the peer reviewed medical literature that supports your argument that the VA provides inferior care. Still waiting....waiting...waiting
You simply do not care at all about an individual. Individuals mean nothing to you. An Individual tale of woe is irrelevant to you.
You look, and accept, only stats of the whole, of the collective, as holding any value. If 90 of 100 are handled acceptably, but ten are handled horribly, the ten means less than nothing to you, so much so that you seem to reject that any value can come from even discussing them. You reject in total all "individual" stories, experiences and problems and only accept the overall stats (stats, it should be pointed out, that are VERY easy to manipulate, same as in the Corporate World, and come with an entirely differnt set of criteria for judging "good" and "bad").
I find this very reflective of the collectivist and anti-individual philosophy expressed by so many liberals. You specificly display this trait in a very acute form in these types of disagreements.
I, in fact, was quoting THE OFFICIAL VA REPORT, issued by themselves.
The data admits they stink. Not outside data. THEIR OWN internal findings.
But, please feel free to keep your head in the sand. You made an employment mistake. I guess it's admirable to show loyalty - even to a poor organization. Hey, some people work selling T-Mobile.
Funny you care about the individual tale of woe but you dont care about the individual tale of praise.
Quite the contrary. I mention often that my own Mother's individual tale of collective socialist medicine in the UK is a big part of whay I still get to enjoy her unique brand of enjoyable company.Funny you care about the individual tale of woe but you dont care about the individual tale of praise.
If I was close-minded and selective, I'd never bring it up, right?
What I care about is the Individual. One way or the other.
It's their own site. They are poor on virtually ALL criteria. They do not CALL it poor BUT a 50% or so positive rating ain't good where I come from. Have that rating in the real world (not the la la land of government) and you'll be out the door.
Enough. You have been exposed as a cover-up artist. Can't hid the truth. It may be uncomfortable, but man up.
I have referenced two studies published in very respected peer reviewed medical journals (some of the authors were not even from the VA) who rate the care at the VA superior based on clinical measures that matter in the medical community.
I want to know how you judge what is quality care and what is not. My gut tells me that you are one of of those fools who wants every available test done for your problem just because its available even if it makes no medical sense.
How about POSITIVE experience. It is a couple of hundred pages of ratings. The summaries (you know how to evaluate a summary, right?) cast a negative light on virtually ALL the VAs performance.
Now maybe YOUR VA is #1 in the country. Buy still the worst facility in the area.
Here in Charleston our VA is #10 in the US. Worst in the area.
Of course it is. A patient who says, "The doctor's and nurses here suck" is in fact a valid metric. The problem with many physicians ( even ones I have used in the past) is they know medicine but understand little else. Perception is a real measure. It's called attitude. Every business I know measures and values perception.
If half the people say "You suck". Then guess what - You suck.
Yes. You're on to us. We want a world without children. That's why so many of us have children. It's just to throw off super sleuths like yourself, Jessie.
