Well said. And also another horrible stonewall in our health and medical systems is the neglegence of nursing homes. My grandmother died a horrible death of institution-induced dehydration. It was not a mere case of benign neglect, the orders were instructed by the Bethany Good samaritan Nursing staff Director to stop giving my grandmother liquids. We are in the midst of a suit agaisnt the Administration there. This has been happening all over the state. People are labeled with senile dementia when they are not, so they can be brought down the list to illiminate dietary sufficiencies, and then let slip away, pushing the family out of the know, and filling the obituaries. This needs to stop one way of another.
