Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 Ahhhhh….the statistics test has been uploaded. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 The literary narrative has been finalized and sent to my professor in Wisconsin.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 I can breathe. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 Finally.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 Actually, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 I was breathing pretty heavily earlier this week. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 With all due respect to my husband, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 here is a pic of yours truly with the cause of last Tuesday’s hyperventilation.

Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 That’s Jeff Scott Soto on the right, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 just in case you were wondering who was who. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 You know, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 I’d look a hell of a lot better if I had Photoshop. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 My image correction software just doesn’t cut it.

******************************

I am appalled at a certain HMO whose slogan rhymes with “Drive”.

Let me put it this way.

In my ER, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 if you come in with pain in your calf with redness and heat, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 a doppler study is done to determine if a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is present. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 If you complain that your other calf is also sore, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 we will do a doppler study of that leg to make sure you don’t have bilateral DVTs.

In my ER, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 if you present with bilateral calf pain, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 redness and heat and you happen to mention you had burning in your chest that morning and jaw pain the night before, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 you get all of the above and (a) an EKG, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 (b) a big ass IV in your left antecubital space for the contrast you will get when you go for the (c) CT scan of your chest to rule out pulmonary embolism.

In my ER, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 if you present with all this and you are a status/post trauma patient of four-and-a-half-months with bilateral fused ankles, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 a cast on one leg and a halo on the other leg with explicit instructions to keep your legs elevated since the accident until you began weight bearing two weeks ago, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 you would be admitted for observation.

At least. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00

 

*****

Take the same patient with the same chief complaint and let’s see how one particular HMO facility decided to handle the case.

Well, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 they did a doppler study of one leg, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 despite the presence of pain in both. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 What do you know? There’s a DVT there!

Then, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 they gave an anticoagulant and sent the patient home.

No doppler on the second leg. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 No EKG. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 No CT of the chest despite the presence of transient chest burning and jaw pains earlier in the day.

You see, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 if you have a simple DVT, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 you can take oral anticoagulants and follow up as an outpatient with your doctor.

But…the patient didn’t have a simple DVT. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 The patient had bilateral DVTs.

That wasn’t all she had.

*****

How did the patient finally get the correct diagnosis? She was taken by ambulance late last night to a decent facility; one that was not affiliated with the HMO.

She had chest burning, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 shortness of breath and bilateral leg pain.

She was throwing pulmonary embolisms.

This facility gave a damn. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 This facility did not brush off her complaints. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 This facility did the tests. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 This facility made the diagnosis. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 And this facility will treat her appropriately.

Just like they did last May.

*****

You know that HMO, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 the one that has the slogan beginning with “Be Well….”? They should change it to “Go to Hell…” because that is how they treat their members.

Yeah, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 pardon the language, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 but I’m pissed.

This patient nearly died last May. Fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 What the hell was “Brand X ” HMO thinking when they saw this constellation of symptoms?

“Let’s finish the job?”

Health maintainence, fluconazole 150mg pills $124.00 my derriere.

Idiots.

    Thank God for E.R.s. I happen to work in one as an RN. There are many issues concerning overcrowding in ER’s, but one of them is certainly the fact that patients cannot get in to their HMO doctors office(the wait is sometimes 3 weeeks and up) and even if they do, they have to wait for “approvals” for that CT scan. If you have bilat DVT’s and go to your HMO Doctors office, your screwed and very possibly dead. Get ready to wait even longer in the lobby, since we have to now house Drunks (no more drunk tanks, they come to the ER)all night long (I work night shift) and we have to house the homeless all night long. We are the social backbone of America. The ER is the frontline. So, get ready to wait longer and longer for that CT scan you can’t get at your doctors office for 3 months. You can wait 3 months or wait 8 hours.

    Oh, Kim! I’m so sorry! Give her my best, and I’m so glad she made it to the better facility!

    With all due respect, Ms. Kim, the “HMO” didn’t treat the patient, a doctor and nurse did.

    It’s very scary (and WRONG) that the nurse who obviously saw her in said HMO facility wasn’t a stronger advocate for her patient, but so fortunate for her that SMF (and you) were close enough to save her AGAIN.

    If this poor woman developed bilat DVTs only a few months apart, what kind of treatment plan must she be on? It seems her physician didn’t do his due diligence on her case…and will be fortunate that the woman (and her family) don’t sue their pants off.

    And also with all due respect to Nurse K and many of the other very fine people I know who work at that same HMO, I have some horror stories to tell and will never work somewhere that only allows me that choice for health coverage. There must be something in the culture or policies that cuts too many corners. Not that tragic or near tragic mistakes don’t happen everywhere – It just happens too much there.
    Glad this patient was able to get to another provider.

    Kim,I’m glad to hear the lady ended up being ok. My Dad wasn’t quite so lucky. He went into his doctor at the same HMO (slogan that rhymes with “Drive”) on a Wednesday. He presented with radiating chest pain, “heart burn”, and nausea. He was 56 yrs. old, a life long smoker, on meds for hypertension, and high cholesterol. What did the doc do? An EKG, a prescription for Zantac, and see you later. By Saturday morning 9 a.m. my Dad was dead. Do you think they could have done a little more workup on Wed?? I wish so much that my Mom or Dad had called me on Wednesday or the days after. I didn’t get a call until Saturday 7:30 a.m. when he was in the ER. By then it was too late. Too much heart damage had been done and he died. With all that said, I’m a firm believer in when God says it’s your time to go it’s your time to go. Still, I will never have that HMO, ever. I agree with you.
