Today was a typical day of work. I did some reading in the morning on current ethical issues and read two articles for the ethics night class that I have been attending with Michael every other week from 6-8pm on Tuesdays. Th articles dealt with the current major problems in health care and focused mainly on economic issues. There are many reasons why there is an on going economic crisis in health care and the articles outlined all of them and also included some potential solutions to the problem. The articles were interesting but also disturbing, stating that Medicare coverage funds are expected to be exhausted by 2019. Last night's class discussion was interesting and the various attendees made it even more insightful. A physician, nurse, mission employee, ethicist, and a compliance officer made up the group. It was interesting to hear the different perspectives related to their their position within the hospital.
