Judy Bragg, RN spent the last five years of her long career in Facility Resource Management. She explains to us some of the real and underlying criteria for patients to be sent to hospice programs. She also dispels a few of the misunderstandings that people have regarding changes in real health care. Things are not always as we think they are. Sometimes in such a current negative atmosphere a positive change is the last thing that a person would expect, but it does happen. As we learn from this program things are not always necessarily as we think they appear to be.

She tells us the straight truth and nothing more. This is good for the education of the public. Education without hyperbole is important but scarce to find these days.
Judy clearly and concisely explains how and why many people are pushed into Superficial Hospice programs – all purposeful and potentially life sustaining medical care being terminated and patients suddenly and falsely being labeled as near death. She also explains that most medical personnel are not aware of the reasons behind these sudden administratively deemed new and dismal diagnoses. Most medical personnel do a good job and are justifiably pleased that they are able to do so.
Note: Judy suggested checking with The Joint Commission to check out these programs. The Joint Commission can be found online:
It appears that The Joint Commission Reports Now Only Provide Public Information on the following:
Emergency Department, Hospital-Based Inpatient Psychiatric Services, Immunization, Perinatal Care, Stroke Care, Substance Use, Tobacco Treatment, Venous Thromboembolism (VTE).
Apparently the various state Departments of Public Health are the only ones who actually do inspect hospitals these days or so they claim. You the citizen can get very limited information which may or may not actually be accurate. What a disappointment. More disappointing is when they tell the public that they do not have to tell us anything.
We all need to question these things that are going on today. We all need to become educated and demand accurate information and proof that it is accurate.
Judy Bragg, RN is going to return again in the future and she will let us know more that can help protect you or your loved ones. We look forward to her return. Until then, this program is must listening if you want to know how and why some patients, especially those hospitalized are often shoved off into programs that stop life sustaining care outside of a hospital.
