Great post. None of this surprised me (I know much of it from sad experience w/ my parents & some from reading). But it's good to put it out there, and more people are likely to watch a film or a U-tube than are likely to read articles about this. People need to know. Thanks Bix.
The bit about commercials for hospitals and medical centers ... it's so right on. They sound so caring about the patient, but it's not the case. It's about making money. That's what I've seen from being on the inside. Paradoxically, it sickens me to watch those commercials. (Same goes for ads pushing drugs.)
the documentary is available from California Newsreel. www.newsreel.org
