Re: “Psych ward at Sacred Heart retains doctors, agrees to cut bed count by two-thirds

And one more thing I would venture to add -- all the things in the BEST program will undoubtedly be helpful and much needed. But sometimes a bed is a bed, and in those situations there is no substitute for a bed for safety reasons. It is extremely difficult for community healthcare workers to find appropriate care when there are just too few beds.

I'm glad you are bringing this to our attention. One thing I might add -- they aren't called "psych wards" anymore. The term is stigmatized and old. A more clinically appropriate term is "psych unit."

Re: “Psych ward at Sacred Heart retains doctors, agrees to cut bed count by two-thirds

I am glad you have posted a more accurate article about the psych dept at SHMC this time. Yes there are 72 beds but there is also an outpatient child program known as the BEST program. It is exciting that SHMC is adding more support staff to help the doctors. In addition to ARNP's, there will be someone to help with insurance companies too. And in the BEST program, psychologists will be helping more with the behavioral aspects while the doctors concentrate on just the meds. SHMC is also talking more to the staff about how support staff might help in other ways. This is the first time in years that admin is seriously looing at what we need instead of just how to cut more from our program. In the end the patients will get a much better treatment program than there is now.

Re: “Idaho's helmet-free motorcyclists aren't safer, but are part of a growing trend

It is hard to imagine that a "writer" could / would publish something this stupid! 1) Both riders were drunk, 2) neither motorcycle had lights and they were riding at night, 3) both were racing at high speeds while drunk, 4) the helmets that "could" have stopped his head injury is speculative, 5) The CDC says that of the 4,502 MC deaths, 12% were not wearing helmets. That means that 88% of the dead WERE wearing helmets! 6) Many states have repealed their helmet laws because more and more studies are finding that helmet law states have MORE fatalities than non-helmet law states. Good grief, is there no end to the stupidity of people like this that obviously has never been on a motorcycle or to a common sense class? SMH

Yeah, but in French Quarter during Mardi Gras you know what you're getting into.
