Should hospitals have metal detectors?
Hospitals are pubic areas with high traffic. It is common to find dangerous individuals, not necessarily in the right state of mind, in hospitals. People needing medical attention under the influence of drugs or alcohol, after fights, or during psychotic breaks... Mixed in with our parents and grandparents with chronic illness, our wives and daughters birthing babies, and our sick or injured children; not to mention the innocent workers trying to help and save lives. Does this seem safe? Should hospitals have metal detectors?
Are they "public"?
If you enter a county hospital, don't you need to be a resident of the county?
Maybe, there are "private" hospitals, and there are hospitals that serve within certain jursidicitions................county, city, Jewish, Baptist, or Catholic.
Yes, anyone should be able to get medical attention, anywhere, yes, I agree.
But, just by serving the " public", are you a public entity?
MacDonalds, serves the " public", but they are not a public company........neither is the world's largest retailer, or the 2 or 3rd.
All State Insurance, serves the " public", but they are not owned by us.........they are a private entity.................until only 2-3 days ago, so was FaceBook!
Should they have " metal detectors"?....................My Pen and Shaffer ball point pen, has a degree of " metal"..........so does my house key, car key, or the zipper on my purse.
Please, stop being afraid of every single little thing.................
Even table salt, when thrown into the eyes, can be a weapon.
The psycotics and drug overdosed, are not sent to the maternity ward! Not to mention, that very few are overdosed on metal..........
Be aware, but do not, be afraid.
That is the best that I can advise you.

I had a total hip replacement operation on March 14th and encountered numerous complications and some that were found to be non-existent after the fact. During the actual surgery, the docs concluded-erroneously-that I had had a heart attack, so I was 'lifeflighted' to the nearest Cardiac Unit...

By the time the dust settles, there will be more than 7 million paying enrollments into the Obamacare program through the Federal, State, and off exchanges. It also appears that the mix of young and old, while not ideal, may not be too bad; although that remains to be seen.What does it mean...

I have been listening to how the government has a billion dollars for getting people to sign up for the Affordable Healthcare Act. Would that money have been better spent training more doctors and building new hospitals? New Jersey has closed how many community hospitals in the last few...

Do you think public restaurants should have a "calming room"?I've heard that some churches are offering a separate room with intercom/window type set ups so people who have neurologically challenged children can sit with them in seclusion but still enjoy the service. I've heard they...

I am wondering why non-citizens(mainly mexicans) are allowed to come over here and have their babies for free in our hospitals??? And me a tax paying citizen with no health insurance has to pay $180 at a clinic just to get a prescription for penicylin for a cold or flu. Thank goodness I have been...
