This happens every day. I’m not sure how the media picked up on this story but this is an every occurrence in my field. Folks can’t afford their meds and they are readmitted to the hospital over and over again. People come in the hospital complaining of a cough that they have had for 6 weeks.
The problem is multi-factorial. Education. Better Access. Affordable. Fix those and then you are in business. No one that I know has a plan to really fix all of this.
Nice post here.
