Your feedback and Statements are always. Welcome.

My statistics on this blog, shows that there is a fairly high rate of visits to this site. Since I opened it a years or so ago. I has had over 1,500 visits or so a year.  My stats do not state whether your are visiting by mistakes, or you are actually reading the articles. But I would surely welcome what

Too frequently some (not all of these) facilities make rules, regulations, and policies that are based for the facilities conveniences not for the best interest of the patients.  And they can do quite a bit of damage in individuals if they have not done it in large groups of people

So do me a favor, and react to some of these articles that I place in this blog. AS YOU MAY NOTE, not of all of the articles are written by me. I give credit and they are written by other sources.

Most of the time, the transition goes smoothly; […]
