More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    follow-up on physician duties from yesterday's show (a doc discharged a patient because the patient refused to discuss guns and gun safety in FL):

    In recent months, there has been media attention surrounding an incident in Ocala, Florida, where, during a routine doctor’s visit, a pediatrician asked a patient’s mother whether there were firearms in the home.  When the mother refused to answer, the doctor advised her that she had 30 days to find a new pediatrician.

    The doctor stated that he asked all of his patients the same question in an effort to provide safety advice in the event there was a firearm in the home.

    He further stated that he asked similar questions about whether there was a pool at the home, and whether teenage drivers use their cell phone while driving for similar reasons – to give safety advice to patients.  The mother, however, felt that the question invaded her privacy.

    This incident has led many to question whether it should be an accepted practice for a doctor to inquire about a patient’s firearm ownership.

    Many? You mean the NRA. But see the following 4 points.

    1. physician duty to treat:

    Physician Duty to Treat

    A physician assumes a duty to treat a particular person when he or she agrees to do so or is expected to do so as a condition of employment. For example, if a mother brings her child to see a physician in private practice, the physician assumes responsibilities toward that child by seeing the child, conducting a history, physical examination, and so on. If that same mother takes her very sick child to a hospital, the physicians in the emergency department assume the responsibility to care for that child as a patient until such time as any life-threatening condition is brought under control or the child is transferred to other appropriate care.

    Both physicians and healthcare institutions can bring relationships – and their duties – to an end. Suppose a patient consistently fails to appear for appointments, fails to comply with recommended treatment, and fails to pay the physician. Under these circumstances, a physician can provide advance notice to the patient that he or she will not longer see and treat the patient. Patients can also be turned away for being unable to pay if physicians make efforts to ensure that the patient is not abandoned with regard to needed critical care. Healthcare institutions can take similar steps. In both cases, however, patients may not be abandoned at times of critical need.

    Broken appointments and fights between parents over management of their kids are pretty common and on rare occasion engender severance of relations. But yes, the doctor can do so, so long as the pt is not abandoned without care. But the doc, and not just the pt. can end the relationship. Also, if you have not seen or contacted the doc in three years (or so), the relationship ends. You can't call a doc and say "I haven't seen you in six years, you have to see me right now for x,y or z". The idea that the doc can fire you and not the other way around rarely occurs to patients.

    2. there is a process for it and 30 days is typical. Here is a how-to guide for the doc.

    Either offer to provide the patient with assistance in finding a new physician, or provide some suggestions directly in the letter, such as advising the patient to contact his or her insurer for names of nearby physicians who are panel providers. Provide the patient with a clear timetable for discharge, indicating that you will continue to see him or her for a specified period of time (i.e., 30 days) for any acute problems until he or she has had the opportunity to establish a relationship with another care provider.
    3. AAP has counseled inquiring about firearms since 2000. This news story (subscription wall) was from Oct 2012:
    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) today released a policy statement urging pediatricians to counsel parents about the dangers of allowing children and adolescents access to guns. The statement, an update of a position paper first published in 2000 and reaffirmed in 2004, was published online today in Pediatrics and will appear in the November print edition of the journal.
    The full text is here (Firearm-Related Injuries Affecting the Pediatric Population).

    4. Public reaction via Carl Hiaasen (Florida loses another ridiculous legal battle):

    Written by the National Rifle Association, the so-called Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act would have prevented concerned physicians from asking patients about guns kept in their houses. It’s a reasonable query in domestic situations in which children might be at risk [and you can't know the risk until you make the inquiry — ed.].

    But the GOP-controlled Legislature wants doctors to shut up about guns and stick to lecturing women about their abortion decisions. So much for privacy.

    By necessity, doctors ask lots of personal questions. Are you using any illegal drugs? How much alcohol do you drink in a week? Do you smoke cigarettes? Do you suffer from depression?

    We’ve all filled out the checklists while sitting in the waiting room. And, on the examination table, we’ve all heard doctors and nurses ask things we wouldn’t post on Facebook.

    Say, have you noticed if your urine is changing color?

    Uh, no.

    Not all docs are happy about this battle, and some want the right but not the obligation to ask (adding 10 minutes for every patient adds up over the week and obligation implies penalty if you don't ask). And want to be paid for their time (there's no code for gun counseling, there's no procedure to bill for and 2500 extra minutes a week every week of unbilled time is daunting).

      I think the 'open access' issue mentioned at the end is one of the most important bits. I hate when good data is behind paywalls, and the price of scientific specialty journals is now prohibitive.

    by itself produce a lot of CO2. Tar sands is a redline/"slippery slope" issue for environmentalists.
    Right now the environmentalist line is that we must reduce world fossil energy production by 50% by 2050 to keep
    CO2 levels below 450 ppm(2 degree C rise). In fact
    world FF is increasing, especially coal in India and China
    so they feel anything which could increase or even maintain fossil fuel production will overshoot 450ppm.
    About 43% of world fossil energy comes from oil so oil
    must be reduced and all of future oil production is coming from heavy oil and bitumen and heavy oil refining produces
    more CO2 than light oil.
    US industry wants keystone to keep Gulf refineries busy(very cheaper tar sand oil increases profits) and they have written off the Middle East as terminally violent.
