No one would ever say this. Especially Ochsner


I know residents at all 3 and if I need surgery, I know which ones I would go to. Ochsner's surgery volume is so much higher than LSU's.

And yet they will continue not to perform medical necessity on outpatients and allow the physicians to over order on every outpatient that comes in the door. And then they claim they are doing their best. Simply said the administrators are still back in the 1980's.

And Oschner also has one of the highest rates of medical malpractice lawsuits in the state.

I'd like to know what his plan is for the uninsured. There are plenty of people in this state that simply can't afford health insurance. There aren't enough well paying jobs in this state to enable many to get insurance. There needs to be a safety net of some kind. While it's true that a hospital can't refuse care, it also digs the poor a deeper hole of debt that they simply can't pay.

Well the most sensible solution is for them to just die.

Decrease the excess population.

If you want a safety net so bad why don't you pay for it? It is not necessary for people that dont need one.

Well, maybe the stupid fricking state constitution could be amended or rewritten to allow the governor to cut from areas other than health care and higher ed.

By widely, you mean a one block radius of said hospitals?

Best training grounds in the US...

Oh, you mean md anderson, baylor, john hopkins, fox chase, ucla, etc.

I just don't see any of the below hospitals being on that list.

Perhaps one may have a good program or two, but they are certainly not known wide as the best training grounds in the US...

How about we cut State agencies, cut welfare, tear down ghettos. I'd rather pay to keep the LSU hospital open than to have shaquanda buying flat screens and rims.

They would not have to shut down anything if they were ran properly. Few of the charity patients are truely no-pay, most all have either medicaid or medicare.

THATS WHY THE FOR-PROFITS WANT THEM - THEY KNOW THEY ARE JUST NOT BEING OPERATED CORRECTLY.

Just about any private hospital is going to have higher volume than the charity hospitals. However the variety of cases is usually limited and lack complexities compared to those than come into charity hospitals. While its important to have a high volume so that you can be surgical competent and proficient. Its also important to have complicated pts with your billion comorbidities so that when shite goes wrong when you are on your own you know how to handle it and so that your are proficient at handling even these cases as well.

I wish my company (HCA) would just buy them. They run Tulane's hospital.




















And I could get transferred to New Orleans
