    Lessening the Suffering of Dialysis Patients Through Engagement

    in Health

    Dr. Robert A. Bear, is the author of "Sorrow's Reward" -interrelated tales from a fictional dialysis unit. While fictional, the stories are too close to the real day to day, lives of patients, Doctors and families. Dr. Bear, author of over 150 medical articles will discuss his reasons for these compelling stories told through the eyes and thoughts of his fictional characters.


     


    This book is a must read for anyone involved with Dialysis from Doctors, Technicians, Counselors, Patient and their families. "Dialysis Advocates"


    After many years in Nephrology as a Physician, Educator and Administrator he began to have questions about how Dialysis Care has evolved. Now that many clinics are run by large "For Profit" companies; are the patients, nursing staff and Doctors better off? What can and should be done to improve dialysis care. What are the responsibilities of patients in their care?

    PATIENT TERMINATED, BLACKBALLED LEFT WITH NO CHOICE BUT HOSPICE.

    in Health

    A discussion with the Wife of patient that after complaining of his level of care and the workers in the clinic, he was terminated for what appears to be trumped up reasons. He has since been blackballed from other clinics in his area; with no clinic to go to he has been forced into HOSPICE.


    This appears to be an ongoing problem with DCI, Fresenius and Davita. This patient was a Davita patient. Dialysis Advocates went to their Legal Department and Javier Rodriguez the CEO of Davita. It appears that no one cares at the CEO level; we’ve asked him and the Legal Department to help with this patient. Nothing came from our request to CMS to help this patient who had no appeal and is not allowed to face his accuser. 


    This is happening much too often in too many clinics where complaining about care or workers leads to retaliation. What if any investigation is done at the clinic level is often poorly done and biased in favor of the worker or clinic. Patients are not allowed to see the results of an investigation nor are they allowed to face their accuser. A patient it appears has to go to legal to clean up a record they are not allowed to see.


    We are having too many patients with the same situation Nationwide. One even having to strip down naked before getting dialysis.

    AUTHOR MARK ELLIS PRESENTS:


    STALIN'S GOLD


      December 1938. Moscow. Josef Stalin has lost some gold. He is not a happy man. He asks his henchman Beria to track it down.
      September 1940 London. Above the city the Battle of Britain rages and the bombs rain down. On the streets below, DCI Frank Merlin and his officers investigate the sudden disappearance of Polish RAF pilot Ziggy Kilinski while also battling an epidemic of looting unleashed by the chaos and destruction of the Blitz. Sweeping from Stalin’s Russia to Civil War Spain, from Aztec Mexico to pre-war Poland, and from Hitler’s Berlin to Churchill’s London a compelling story of treasure, grand larceny, treachery, torture and murder unfolds. Eventually as Hitler reluctantly accepts that the defiance of the RAF has destroyed his chances of invasion for the moment, a violent shoot-out in Hampstead leads Merlin to the final truth....and Stalin to his gold.


    AUTHOR LIAM PARKER PRESENTS:


    OMNIVERSE-  What if you were haunted by strange and terrible dreams in the night? But, what if they were not dreams, but preludes of the truth? What if you met the woman of your dreams in a nightmare? What if you learned that you were doomed to a terrible destiny, and that there was nothing that you could do to escape it? This is the fate that befalls Jack Thornton, a former Marine lieutenant who served with the famed “Walking Dead” in Vietnam and who is now a lawyer in San Francisco. His quiet, ordered life begins to unravel, however, when his nightmares begin to shape his waking hours. The grim images that haunt Jack’s sleep are not of Vietnam, but of things and beings not of this earth. This then, is the beginning of Jack Thornton’s tale, the first book of The Omniverse Chronicles.
