  •  Does Demo health care bill help at all? No. (0+ / 0-)

    Even assuming Temple University (Bill Cosby's alma mater) had good intentions, they are in a squeeze as an urban hospital with a population with no health care coverage.

    Does the Democrats health care plan help urban hospitals increase nurse/patient ratios, the single best predictor of good hospital outcomes? Nope.

    Does the Democrats health care plan require low nurse/patient ratios from the insurance/provider industry? Nope.

    In theory sometime in the distant future some of the Temple urban population clients will have some kind of insurance that will help Temple stop losing money for giving health care to poor people but it's in a galaxy far far away from today, tomorrow, next week, next year for Temple and Temple nurses.
