As US citizens allow all these policies pushed by Wall Street be installed over the mantra of JOBS, JOBS, JOBS---each time citizens take these jobs or fall for the idea they have a small business they are MOVING FORWARD towards third world International Economic Zone poverty. We saw the term CONCIERGE HEALTH CARE that is simply building structures for GUTTED OF FUNDING MEDICAID FOR ALL PREVENTATIVE CARE. They throw a few million again at Baltimore's underserved as if creating small businesses for wellness etc when soon after all that is folded into these global health systems. Then as usual Baltimore citizens not only do not have access to health care---they have no small health care business. THAT IS CONCIERGE HEALTH CARE POLICY. Then, if you think you are gaining by being that nurse practitioner replacing the doctor in most health care----your wages are going to drop like an anvil under Trans Pacific Trade Pact and International Economic Zone global corporate campus/global factory policies. That doctor is now a global corporate executive removed from the practice of health care and earning millions in salary while those doing his/her job are going to be those impoverished third world labor.
WESTERN MEDICINE HAS NEVER ALLOWED THE DOCTOR BE DISCONNECTED FROM DIRECT CARE FOR A PATIENT---RECENTLY EMT's WERE ALLOWED BECAUSE OF THE EMERGENCY STATUS.
The Burwell Bill Gates global Wall Street health system crew may tell us that doctors are not only not needing to be present throughout the care of a patient but they are not doing better with all this remote technology BUT THEY ARE NOT TELLING THE TRUTH----no surprise there for these profit-mongers.
Definition of Hippocratic Oath
Hippocratic Oath: One of the oldest binding documents in history, the Oath written by Hippocrates is still held sacred by physicians: to treat the ill to the best of one's ability, to preserve a patient's privacy, to teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and so on.
There are many versions of the Hippocratic Oath. We here present two versions. First, the "classic" version (or more precisely, one translation of the original oath). And then, following it, is presented one of the fine "modern" versions of the Hippocratic Oath.
Classic Version of the Hippocratic Oath
I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:
To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art - if they desire to learn it - without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else.
I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.
I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.
I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.
Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.
What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself, holding such things shameful to be spoken about.
If I fulfil this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.
A Modern Version of the Hippocratic Oath
I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:
I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.
I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.
I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.
I will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery.
I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.
I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.
I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.
I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.
If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
The classical version of the Hippocratic Oath is from the translation from the Greek by Ludwig Edelstein. From The Hippocratic Oath: Text, Translation, and Interpretation, by Ludwig Edelstein. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Press, 1943.
The modern version of the Hippocratic Oath was written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University.
All we see now in Baltimore are Concierge Health Care and Race to the Top privatized education small business on this march toward privatizing all that is public to global Wall Street corporations.
This is of course what all current US corporate health care plans will become---preventative health care only and yes, national labor union leaders knew Cadillac health policies would become MEDICAID FOR ALL.

EVERYONE MADE TO FEEL THEY NEEDED TO SUSPEND THEIR CONSCIOUS TO THE WILL OF THESE EXCEPTIONAL---NOT PEOPLE.
'House (aka House MD), from executive producers Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs, David Shore, and Bryan Singer is a new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients'.
As always Wall Street and Hollywood work together to ease Americans into the coming economic trend----last decade TV was filled with anti-heroes----because we are to believe that some people are SO EXCEPTIONAL as to NEVER BE WRONG. For health care that was BONES and HOUSE. Here we had two supposed geniuses with their differing personality quirks-----HOUSE was a dictator ignoring all the regulations and rights of citizens because he knew best and the staff around him may have protested but came to feel he did indeed no best.
THIS SETS THE STAGE TO THE DEREGULATION, CONSOLIDATION, AND GLOBAL HEALTH TOURISM THAT HAS THE DOCTOR ABLE TO KNOW ALL EVEN WHEN NOT PRESENT.
BONES is another health genius this time tied to the PRAGMATICS OF RULES surrounding health science. She does not bend for science---she is the STEM everything is a fact kind of gal. Her quirk is being anti-social ---she has no ability to empathize which is what global Wall Street health as predatory profit is about. Now, BONES is painted as always doing what is good for the least of people in her pragmatism and is always right----BUT THAT IS NOT HOW REAL LIFE WORKS AND IT IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT.
One thing BOTH anti-health heroes DO SAY----they both must be present throughout the process of treatment and determination to DO THE JOB RIGHT. As they say----it is the smallest things a doctor sees, smells, senses that make or break a diagnosis and NO TELEMEDICINE IS GOING TO DO THAT.
House (aka House MD), from executive producers Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs, David Shore, and Bryan Singer is a new take on mystery, where the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients. Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) is devoid of bedside manner and wouldn't even talk to his patients if he could get away with it. Dealing with his own constant physical pain, he uses a cane that seems to punctuate his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. While his behavior can border on antisocial, House is a maverick physician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts have afforded him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he's a brilliant diagnostician who loves the challenges of the medical puzzles he must solve in order to save lives.
************************************************************The American people are made to believe that this Federal agency is staffed with uncompromised people HOLDING POWER ACCOUNTABLE and fighting for the little guys. Pragmatism always brings the right solution and they are never wrong on their assumptions.
Whereas no one believes our Federal agencies are filled with such moral, ethical, or rule abiding folks as these two anti-heroes----we do KNOW they both felt the need to always be on scene and directly involved every step of the way in order to achieve that success.
A Bones Community
Thursday 8:00 PM on FOX
FOX's "Bones" is a darkly amusing procedural that is inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.
Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and writes novels on the side. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless (i.e. the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed), law enforcement calls on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues

left behind in the victim's bones.
While most people can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation, Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit is an exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists — the "squints," as he calls them — who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them a formidable duo, both professionally and personally.
Aside from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab. Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan's earthy and bawdy best friend. Angela is married to and has a son with Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne), a conspiracy theorist and expert on insects, spores and minerals, who is affectionately known as "the slime and bug guy." Dr. Camille "Cam" Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), the street-smart and centered coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview. Lending his professional expertise to Brennan and Booth is Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley), a sharp, young FBI psychologist who is equally adept at profiling murderers and providing impromptu therapy to his co-workers.
This past season, after Brennan and Booth began pursuing a romantic relationship, the two welcomed the birth of their daughter Christine. In addition, the season finale episode brought back evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) who mysteriously managed to manipulate the legal system to tie key pieces of evidence to Brennan in a murder investigation, with suspicion now falling on her.
Season 8 will begin with Brennan on the run with her father Max (guest star Ryan O'Neal) as a fugitive both from the law and serial killer Pelant, while Booth is restricted to administrative duties at the FBI. In addition, Sweets has been removed from the case, as has Federal Prosecuting Attorney Caroline Julian (guest star Patricia Belcher). What's more, due to Pelant's technical savvy, Booth and Brennan will communicate with each other in only the most rudimentary ways, not only to try to prove Brennan's innocence but — with the help of Cam, Hodgins, and Angela — to place the blame where it belongs, on the murderous Pelant.
At the conclusion of Season Nine, the team took down the Ghost Killer serial killer, only to find that she was just a small cog in a much larger conspiracy involving high-ranking government officials and people within the FBI. Committed to uncovering the truth, Brennan and Booth ignored the potential danger of confronting a governmental monolith and soon found their professional and personal lives in turmoil, after Booth was arrested for the murder of three FBI agents.
Season 10 will begin with Brennan and the squints desperately trying to get Booth out of jail, clear his name and absolve him of crimes he did not commit. They know the only way to do this is to finish what Booth started and uncover who is behind the conspiracy at the FBI. Throughout this ordeal, Brennan and Booth both will wrestle with the decisions they made on their biggest case yet — decisions that will test their relationship, as well as their careers.
By the end of Season 10, Booth and Brennan felt the toll of ten long years surrounded by death and sorrow. Even the joyous news that Brennan was pregnant quickly turned sour as Booth succumbed to his gambling addiction, putting Brennan and the rest of the family in danger. By the season finale, Booth and Brennan were able to reunite as a couple, as they made a mutual decision to quit their jobs and start anew with a focus on life ... not death.
Season 11 picks up six months later, with Booth, Brennan, daughter Christine and the new baby, ostensibly living a dream life, a world away from the murder-filled life they left behind. But a case with close personal ties to the couple compels Brennan to become involved in the forensic analysis of the remains, and Booth mysteriously goes missing, prompting an FBI investigation into his whereabouts, led by Agent Grace Miller (guest star Kim Raver).
FOX's "Bones" is from Far Field Productions and Josephson Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Hart Hanson. Hanson, Stephen Nathan, Ian Toynton and Barry Josephson are executive producers.
