Health care has changed dramatically since my days of wearing whites. It is perverse to witness the system created to care for us ultimately causing injury - emotionally, physically, spiritually, and financially. For the past twenty years, the quality of care in the United States has steadily declined, while the costs have astronomically risen. Health care, is in fact, is making us sick, and those paying the lion’s share for the highly dysfunctional system are American employees.
There are two complex ecosystems for which you are paying - healthcare delivery settings (clinics, hospitals, pharmacies) and health insurance industries. After ten years in the hospital system as a cardiac nurse, I spent the better part of twenty-one years on the insurance side of the business. Compounding the complexity are the unethical behaviors found in both ecosystems, leading many experts to claim, “The United States healthcare system is broken”.
