Medicare Inspector General: One Third of Skilled Nursing Patients Harmed in Treatment

A study by Medicare’s inspector general of skilled nursing facilities says nearly 22,000 patients were injured and more than 1,500 died in a single month — a higher rate of medical errors than hospitals.

One-in-three patients in skilled nursing facilities suffered a medication error, infection or some other type of harm related to their treatment, according to a government report released today that underscores the widespread nature of the country’s patient harm problem.

See How Big Government and Big Pharma Conspire to Force Medicines on You!

What are medical doctors saying about Obama Care?
Big Pharma’s Far-Reaching Power
Here is what Dr. Blaylock, M.D. has to say about it. I’ve never been more concerned about Big Pharma’s near total control of medical information in this country, as well as our government’s “bought-and-paid-for” role in pushing its agenda.
I’m especially worried that, as we move toward universal healthcare — a euphemism for socialized medicine — we’ll ultimately see government bureaucrats controlling medications for the entire population.
Today, they’re pushing risky vaccinations that do more for Big Pharma’s bottom line than for the health of the American people . . .
But there’s also talk of putting everybody on a “polypill” that combines aspirin, blood pressure medicine, and cholesterol-lowering medication.
I’m not kidding! This crazy idea comes from the United Kingdom and — and it has been proposed here to control healthcare costs. It’s bad enough that . . .
Big Pharma wants everybody on cholesterol-lowering drugs, including children . . .
Cholesterol does NOT cause heart disease. And taking cholesterol-lowering drugs will not prevent heart attacks or heart disease but will do bodily harm. See my report, “Cholesterol Drugs Are Dangerous” by going here.
I want you to be aware of Big Pharma’s hidden agenda, and how companies get our government and media to promote their drugs, even when those drugs are harmful or ineffective.
Why Three Flu Shots This Fall?
You’ve seen the media blitz: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says you’ll need two swine flu shots, as well as the regular seasonal flu shot.
Yes! Incredibly, it’s urging three flu shots this fall! But why? Let’s follow the money to find the answer . . .
When the swine flu story first broke, experts warned that it could be the worst flu since the 1918 pandemic that killed more than 50 million people worldwide, including 700,000 Americans.
But who were these experts?
People on the pharmaceutical and government payroll, that’s who. They said it was the most unusual virus they had ever seen . . . that it could kill in large numbers . . .
Overnight, a compliant media spread this alarming news was spread far and wide.
Parents were scared out of their wits. Schools were closed. Millions with flu symptoms flocked to doctors and hospitals!
And what happened? Across the globe, 429 people died. Yes, that’s unfortunate, but compared with the 36,000 people that die each year from regular flu it wasn’t a serious threat.
Swine Flu Found to be Weak Virus
The Chicken Little doomsayers (read “drug company executives”) were disappointed in these statistics. But now they’re back scaring the public again, saying the “big event” is coming this winter!
And surprise of all surprises, drugmaker Novartis has a swine flu vaccine all ready to go. And the company says it won’t give the vaccine away to the poor. Everybody must pay!
Imagine if it could sell 2 billion doses worldwide and get $5 a piece for them. That’s $10 billion.
Neat trick. But to succeed, it will need governments around the world insisting that their citizens get vaccinated while using taxpayer money to buy the vaccine for the poor.
Washington is on board. Can you guess why?
Big Pharma is the biggest contributor to Washington politicians — both Democrats and Republicans. President Obama himself collected $1.2 million during his presidential campaign.
