Routines and the Cost of Medical Care Today

By Rick Redalen, M.D.

During a hospitalization several months ago a lab tech came around to draw my blood at about three or four in the morning. When I asked her what that draw was for, she replied that is our routine. I asked if this routine was carried out on all the people on the floor. She replied affirmatively.

Do all of you notice the signs placed nearly everywhere in our hospitals? Please be quiet so our patients can get their necessary rest. What a joke. They think our family is bothering us more visiting during visiting hours than they are bothering us doing procedures whenever it is convenient for them.
