Indian Health Service Complaints

Monday morning a reporter and myself went to Fort Thompson to talk with tribe members about recent complaints and an investigation into IHS.  Some of the stories we heard were very powerful and talked about substandard health care for these people.  There was an obvious distaste toward this clinic from almost everyone we talked to in Fort Thompson.   Take a look at my colleagues  story and let me know what you think about the situation.  http://www.mitchellrepublic.com/event/article/id/46021/

    My daughter-in-law is a member of the tribe in Sisseton – she has told me similar stories relating to her friends and family members. She actually was transported to North Dakota, while in labor, and then transported back to Sisseton to give birth… for reasons she doesn’t understand to this day. She recently told me that her grandfather, bitten by a recluse spider, was given only antibiotics and sent home from Sisseton IHS… which then resulted in him needing to be admitted to Sioux Falls for comprehensive treatment for the bite. He has lasting damage from this bite.

    Stories like the ones in the article, and the ones my daughter-in-law tells me break my heart. No one should receive substandard care – no one should be turned away or limited as to what care they can receive. What is needed should be given – simple as that. That’s how it is supposed to work, when there is a sense of community responsibllity within the tribe, and the IHS that services them.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?

    If you know of any please share. Cheers!

    We all know by now, that when you make a habit of connecting with potential customers
    little and often, on topics that they care about, you increase the likelihood of them doing business with you.

    The following are four prime reasons why you should be using
    Pinterest, including examples of practical applications:.
    It’s not always easy, but if the material is for something
    truly important, it’s the wisest step to take.
