Unfortunately, today in the medical field, apologies just might have to be accepted. We all know that the Baby Boomers have reached (most) elderly age, and some dont have any retirement plan for their use. This leaves our nations elderly to receive social security. When a person reaches this stage in there life, and has to depend on others for survival, they sign there life, and the paycheck away to live in the nursing homes and to be serviced in the hospitals that tax payers (including them at one time) pay for. In state ran nursinghomes...when things get bad, and i have seen them bad, what are we really to do? If we close the home where would all the patients on medicaid go? Do we simply set them out to fend for themselves, virtually impossible if youre dependant on someone for survival. Is it right for us to keep accepting apologies from the medical field? No Should the state stand up and look at their facilities more carefuly? Yes. Is there anything else we can hope for to happen for the better for our elderly? I sure hope so in the future.
