***Benefit of Appropriate Care Form***

Procedures that are not indicated result in more suffering. The addition of an admission form will help the patients, physicians and salaried medical team make rational decisions for beneficial care while avoiding the patient solely managing the complexities while they are sick and distraught. In the long term this will help hospitals and physicians because Medicare payments will not be cut.

anton,
You are correct, technology and procedures that are not of benefit do cause a great deal of suffering. They also waste vast resources that could be put to much better use. Thank you for your comment.
