yes, I am expressing my opinion....



I, Cringely What Intel and AMD clean rooms could teach hospitals - I, Cringely



It is a fact that hospitals are not nearly as clean as what they used to be, and not a good place to be if your sick...
believe me, not all of them are as clean as they should be.

The methods described in your link would be expensive. Are you prepared to pay for them?

You keep saying, "It is a fact that hospitals are not nearly as clean as what they used to be."

I have not seen anything in your link that validates the then vs. now comparison.

I am not here to argue my point...

well, we either pay for cleanliness or pay later, as we just may do, as I said before, I remember how things used to be...it was much better then, period......

and I'm real tired of posting proof, b/c no matter what is posted you will turn down, so it's a waist of time....believe what you like...your allowed....

I am talking about now, Nothing like ebola and this present virus has happened to this extent in my lifetime before...we've had ebola outbreaks but, they were contained pretty quickly....

and so what, ok, if you want me to say you are right and I am wrong, ok....I should have written my statement better....but that isn't the point....and I'm glad you have taken precautions, then this whole thread does not pertain to you does it....

it is senseless to argue, the whole point of this thread is to try and wake some people up! One of the gals I work with gets so frustrated b/c the day care where she takes her children complains about how many parents bring their kids in sick....and it is very frustrating.
Measles is a very serious disease and extremely contagious. About 30% of measles patients get complications, including serious ones such as permanent hearing loss and encephalitis (inflammation of the covering of the brain).

Penicillin does not treat measles, as measles is a viral disease.

It's worth remembering that enteroviruses are usually mild, and that while this latest round has been a little scary for parents of children who developed severe respiratory distress, it's likely that thousands more have also contracted D68 with few symptoms other than what felt like a typical back-to-school cold, recovering quickly with no complications.

Parents, for the love of God - PLEASE KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME WHEN THEY'RE SICK!!!


They won't, people are selfish. Just be glad you don't have a child with chronic lung disease.

I'm not saying it wasn't serious.....it depends on the patient and they're immune systems....

What I was saying was, we had penicillian back then...sorry for the confusion....

yes, indeed, people HAVE become way selfish....

when you see people walking down the street, looking down at their cells, or out to dinner with family, and they are looking at their cells, it just proves what an individual nation we've become.
