Sometimes I think that our health care system is sicker than the folks it aims to treat. Managing a medical practice, hospital or HMO has got to be one of the most challenging and thankless tasks I can imagine. The brave people who take on the challenge are faced with a perfect storm of rising costs in technology and labor on one side and on the other, a clientele that feels entitled to have their every discomfort diagnosed and treated…at little or no cost to them. The more benighted among them are calling for Universal Health Care as the anodyne to all their woes. Sure, the emergency room visits will be free, but they’ll be on a waiting list for any treatment more involved than a prescription for Valium.
