Consider Scrubs When Caregiving

For anyone providing care to an elderly relative, friend or patent, scrubs are a great option for attire. They are comfortable, allow for ease of movement, and they are designed to live through being beaten up by frequent laundering. Street clothes can hamper the caregiver, and run the risk of being ruined in the course of a normal day of care giving.  Blue Sky Scrubs has been a loyal sponsor of this blog. I encourage you to check out their lines. They offer a variety of great scrubs and even provide custom made scrubs.

Understanding the High Cost of Medical Care

Here's a great article explaining why medical care can cost so much. What it neglects to explain in detail is that the negotiated insurance rates are usually SO LOW that the MD office has to increase the cost just to make enough to stay afloat in the office and pay each of these people. (Same with any medical office or facility.)

Some of the procedures could be shortened and made more cost effective of course, but then someone has to consult with the doctor or his medical group to set up a more efficient office practice, and that costs lots of money too that has to factor into your bill. Interesting.....

Never Forget 9-11-01

In September 2004 I stood at Ground Zero with my husband and oldest daughter. There is nothing that compares to the feeling looking in to that destruction and realizing how the world was changed that day. Never Forget!
