MI hospital denies honoring father's racial request

The head of a Michigan hospital denied allegations made in a lawsuit that hospital officials relented to a father's request that African-American nurses not tend to his baby. When the father showed a nursing supervisor his swastika tattoo, it "created anger and outrage in our staff," said Melany Gavulic, president and CEO of Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., in a written statement.

Now is an exciting time to begin a medical career. Many grants and programs supporting educational opportunities are available today. This blog is dedicated to providing current information for schools, training, and job opportunities related to medical and nursing fields. The US Department of Labor projects that over 500,000 jobs will be added to the Health-Care Industry in the next 7 years. Now that President Obama's Health Care Plan, or ObamaCare, is in effect the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) has announced a 8%-13% increase in their corporatation's healthcare plan-cost due. Why would the AARP support Obama's Health plan? Because further cutbacks on Medicare from this legislation will increase seniors needing private coverage. According to the Nov 12, 2010 'Wall Street Journal' (author Anne Tergesen) "As a result, as many as one million Medicare recipients will have to choose new coverage, according to AARP". The USA already spends over $2.4 trillion dollars per year on the healthcare industry. The increase in private coverage will increase the number of private-sector jobs in the medical profession. Along with the 'Aging of America', where the majority of citizens need increased health services, numerous factors are driving the medical profession to rank top among the highest demand and highest paying careers in the country.
