Just like the fungal meningitis outbreak that could have been completely prevented if they followed protocol. It all comes down to people being CARELESS. CARELESSNESS KILLS. Those 23 people should be alive today, but because of ad decisions made by people in the position to call the shots, these people didn't make it and many got very sick.
I'm really getting sick of reading stories like this. I'm getting sick of our medical system and how the billion dollar drug companies use unlawful ways to profit more $ (kickbacks people...its gotten corrupt because everyones motivation is wrong).
Just everything ...I'm sick of the crazy prices of medictions these days. Im extremely pissed off that doctors don't even discuss or look at family history/genetics before they jump on suggesting possibly deadly medications. Biologic drugs ARE NOT for everyone.....(like me.... cancer runs on both sides of my family..& guess what kind of cancer? The exact type of cancer that the manufacturer reports that people have gotten from treatment with Biologics. When a doctor just casually mentions that I should be on one of these drugs, it makes me want to punch them in the face.
I ask them exactly what I want to know when I'm there. This is our lives people. Don't ever be intimidated by the man wearing the white coat with a medical degree. Most of them shouldn't even have the degree. Anyone can be a doctor these days. There are brilliant doctors out there.... but finding them is either difficult because of persons' location and require some $ because the doctor is extremely far. Most people won't want to have that burden and will just settle with the stupid man that thinks he's smart. LOL I'm done venting now. Carry on with the article. You'll probably be just as disgusted as me.
C-DIFF.... IS UGLY!
