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 That means that 88% of the dead WERE wearing helmets! 6) Many states have repealed their helmet laws because more and more studies are finding that helmet law states have MORE fatalities than non-helmet law states.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

Take your kids to the French Quarter in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and then talk about Spokane.

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

90% of what this utter moron posts is just mindlessly regurgitated nonsense from the rightwingnut propaganda feed for brainwashed braindead imbeciles. Unfortunately, there's a sizable vocal minority of these Teabagging imbeciles in America who believe all this crap, unfortunately they vote, and unfortunately they aspire to political office. Ironically, they erroneously believe themselves to be the "true patriots", but their empty jingoistic faux patriotic rhetoric stands in stark contrast to the very principles this nation was founded upon. The overwhelming majority of them also call themselves "Christians", though there is nothing remotely Christlike about them. They are repugnant obnoxious ignorant loudmouth idiots, the very antithesis of what Christ teaches, and they would make our founding fathers retch.

But he's not going to resign because he's "not racist" and resigning would be admitting he is...right.

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

I don't know what to say. I'm not surprised or shocked. I'm a black woman in American I have seen, heard and experienced worse. I have grown numb to it as most of us have. It's been apart of our experience here in America. America hates us. And our blood sweat and tears helped to make this country what it is. I would say it's sad but the truth is life for most blacks have and will continue to be sad because of people like this. The thing I do know is for those of you who are racist yet claim to Christians what do you think Jesus would say? I think he is going to say"depart from me you wicked sinners for I know you not". My advice pray for understanding before you pick up the Bible so that the Lord can reveal to you what His word really means. I will be praying for you racist.

Re: “U.S. Senators want methadone off Medicaid's preferred drug lists

e," says Arndt. "It’s really about Sen. Murray being the top Democrat on the Senate health committee, but it’s also tied back to Washington having the third highest rate of deaths in the country for a period of time." 

What does the first part of the press secretary's quote mean?

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

It's unfortunate that Patrick chose to express his personal views on a public forum where his words could be misinterpreted by other users of Facebook. I don't think what he said should be construed as racist, which so many people are ready to label and blow way out of proportion nowadays just like a woman living in Airway Heights that wants to express her view of the Mayor of Airway Heights by chalking it all over her house. She is well within her rights to express her opinion. Why isn't the Mayor aloud to express his opinion? Why is it that she or anyone else has to ignorantly claim that what the Mayor said was racist? > Get over throwing down the race cards already. Or perhaps that's just what society really needs is to be desensitized to racism by people "crying wolf" too many times.
Truthfully, as far as what the Mayor of Airway Heights said...nothing wrong with it. But when he used a public forum to express it, now he can be criticized by everyone. Has he broken a law? NO. Climb on his back if that's how you choose to spend your time, but he's done nothing wrong and no sanctions should be issued.

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

The truth is that unless you or your relatives are of Native American Heritage, guess what all of you ignorant bigots families migrated to this country. Stop blaming President Obama for the immigration issues and everything else that is wrong with this country. Stop telling people to go back to their country, go back to yours, Ireland, Germany, England, Poland, Austrialia etc.
Native Americans were here long before Columbus was credited with finding something that was already inhabited. I'm sick and tired of the ass wipes bashing Obama for something that he didn't create.
He's done a lot more that the Bush wackers did when they were in office and outsourced so many American jobs from this country so their rich white friends could get tax breaks.
Blame the people that are truly responsible for the financial, moral and ethical down fall of this country, IT'S NOT PRESIDENT OBAMA.
And as for somebody looking like a monkey that asswipe rushing must not have a mirror to see those big monkey ears on each side of that redneck face. GET A LIFE AND GET OUT OF THAT OFFICE RUSHING YOUR FIRED!!!

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

Can I just say that I grew up in Airway heights and it is not fair to judge the whole city by one mans actions. I was too young when he got elected and beyond that this is not the man he appeared to be when he was in our church. I am just as upset by sone of these comments but don't put down a whole town you know nothing about

Re: “75+ more questionable posts by Airway Heights Mayor Patrick Rushing

It' s just unfathomable to believe people like this major not only still exist in our country but are elected to government which they abhor. They hate and trash the government which they were elected to serve. People like this usually say things like, "I am telling you the truth". Problem is whatever they say, the truth is usually the exact opposite. Saying something is true doesn't make so. It's evidence. We have the evidence on this shrill, get him out, and why did it take so long!
