Are you a hospitalist or self-employed?
I am an employed full time “hospitalist” at one facility but an independent contractor (flat rate ) at the facility that stopped admissions/discharges ...temporarily (they lifted the hold already).
It makes no difference to me if they admit or don’t allow discharges .... just a little less work .
Lol.

Now , if they start losing money I am sure they will want to renegotiate my contract . No big deal as it’s a “side gig “ and I am stretched thin enough as it is ...
Lots of offers springing up to do “Tele” work but don’t have the time to fit it in .

I know I am lucky (and very grateful) I have a somewhat “safe” and “essential” job during this crisis .

My heart goes out to those who are less fortunate.

Obviously even prior to this crisis we always took precautions to decrease the risk of spreading “generic “ germs (and bringing it home ).
We all just do it a little bit more now .
Lol

Thanks for responding and be well. I was a hospitalist with a 3 year contract from 2002 to 2005. Yes, I have concerns for those who have lack of healthcare access. One of the hospitals in the North Alabama region closed their inpatient unit due to lack of profitability over a year ago. The 2 remaining hospitals are always claiming that they are at “full capacity.” Therefore, it is problematic for the unfortunate who are needing inpatient crisis stabilization. My concern for this area and in relation to the Covid-19 crisis is that if the clinics close then the patients have very little recourse but to flood the local ER’s or families will overuse 9-1-1 EMS first responder systems unnecessarily. Stay safe.

No matter what Trump decides to do with his “we are open for business” mantra, the States will continue to rule. The shut downs will continue and he can’t do shit about it.
I think that’s what he’s hoping for. Trump wants to be re-elected and his platform is built on the economy. He doesn’t want to die on this hill

He just finished up his evening virus update and made it a point to let us know the market was up today. He also spoke about a "beautiful timeline" for ending social distancing and getting back to normal. He seemed so out of it that at times he could not even read his script. Honestly, I'm not sure who is in more danger, all of us or the President.

2017 GT350 now gone to a great home.
So on Easter he rises from the dead? Easter bunny gonna save us? Open up large economic machines like Omaha, Rapid City, Knoxville? What is he going on about? The Big markets like New York, LA, Chicago, etc will not be in any shape to get back at it. He’s lost it.

Easter is a good aiming point. Adjustments can be made if we approach Easter and it appears that more time will be needed, no?

he’s got to be so stressed. I can’t imagine trying to make some of these decisions. There’s only less wrong ways of handling things at this point.

My personal opinion is that we’ve made it thus far.. let’s see this thru. Try to prolong the largest influx until we have more infrastructure in place (masks/ vents/ Ppe/ hospitals/ etc). The recession is going to happen. Even if we lift all efforts to curb the virus, people won’t be dining out/ traveling/ etc. as numbers of deaths go up, people will try to avoid dying. There no way of just Restarting the economy. People have already maxed out debt between credit cards/ auto loans because of the laxed laws. Too many people have already been laid off.

Living in Vegas kinda gives a expedited example as to what’s coming. Wynn decided to pay all their low level employees and said that cannot do the same for the executives. They offered shares. Might as well be a buy back. They’ll get their bailout as planned this way. The bond market is about to go. The stock market is being propped up by a short term tourniquet

Trump is oblivious to reality, he has no way in the world to know when our workforce can back to work, the only way to know is to do random testing to determine the real nature of this beast, once the data is gathered than a education decision can be made on how and or when to proceed.

Right now he is flying blind and not listening to the experts or more correctly the ones that are left after he has surrounded himself with yes men.

At times I have been able sense what's going to happen in the future, and this pandemic is going to get really really bad before its all over, America will never be the same again and no wishful thinking is going to change that, the virus doesn't give a [email protected], it just replicates itself and kills.

Well, so far today in Detroit, a police officer, two FCA factory workers, and a community activist who was, among other things, working to help educate people on COVID-19 have all died of of this “media fueled COVID-19 bull-schitt”.

Correction....as of just a few minutes ago, two police officers, A sergeant just passed away from COVID-19 less than an hour ago. But, yeah, this is all a media creation or nothing more than the flu blown out of proportion. And the hospitals in the area are near capacity on ventilators in use. Or maybe the media is lying again.

You guys are such drama queens on this. Your TDS is strong.

Obviously to anyone with a reasonable mind they know that if the economy goes into something that is bad enough people will lose their lives in many different ways as a result. And the number that lose their lives will be more than from the virus itself.

Thus the cure (crashing the world economies, staying home indefinitely, etc) could be worse than the problem.

This President whether you like him or not is more than likely smarter, richer, more successful than anyone on this forum. He also has access to advisers that are the top of their field.

These are the people whether we like it or not that are going to make the decisions that determine the next 10 months of this country.

Don't like it? Go vote and get someone else you like better to take over next January.
Agreed Timeless. I'm sorry to see you being attacked for stating what you see as the truth. TDS is alive and well, the Libs have no idea what's in store for them when their savior Biden stumbles his way into town. Obumer would be (and probably is) hiding under his bed, or in the closet!

God bless America and President Donald Trump

Richer and more successful, yes. Smarter? Yeah I don’t think so. It’s clear listening to this dude talk he’s a freaking idiot. Born into money, thus rich and successful. As far as listening to his advisers, let’s hope to God he does because it certainly seems like he’s just making decisions on the fly based on wishful thinking.
I can assure you he is smarter than you or I. Wharton does not let in much less graduate anyone that is not of a certain intellect. Your TDS will not change this.

It is a also a leader's role to talk of hope (remember your savior's slogan?). Whether it happens or not only time will tell. What we do know is that a positive mind set leads to better outcomes.

OK, well then that leaves out Trump. :) Of course we know this, but he tied this statement in with the one about backing away from social distancing. Add those two up and if he pulls the plug, thousands could die unnecessarily. Fortunately, I do not believe, the states will not allow this to happen.
And he doesn't listen to them. He doesn't listen to anyone unless they are kissing his butt. Dr. Fauci knows more than all of them put together and they are not listening to him. He is either going to be fired or he will quit.
This has nothing to do with TDS so please stop bringing this up. He may be rich (although not as much as you think), successful (on the backs of a lot of working people over the years) and smart (yeah no, even his teachers admit to that) but he is lacking in all aspects of what makes us human. I don't dislike him, I pity him.
I admire how much insider information you have on my thoughts on how rich the President is, how much his advisers like him, how much he listens to his advisers, and how little he cares for humans. I'm fairly certain with that all knowing knowledge you would be better suited to anything else other than trolling mustang forums with your TDS. :like:

You're out of your mind. Just remember, he's not fighting for you, you're poor. His racist ideals and affinity for corruption may align with yours, but at the end of the day, he doesn't give a shit about you, so don't act like he's your best friend.
To think any politician cares about anyone personally on this forum is delusional at best. Racist ideals? What does that even mean? His policies are America first no matter what your race might be. His poll numbers are the highest for any republican no matter the race...maybe they don't have the TDS you do?

And yes, his conservative business growth platform aligns....especially when you consider the alternatives.

NO ONE that runs for President is ever going to be 100% perfect...ever. It comes down to two options which is usually voting for the least worst candidate. Ideal candidates don't want to put up with the crap it takes and usually just become CEOs making their millions.

It's really sad to see an opinion like this, although I respect it, but :

I don't suppose you'd have the same opinion if you let someone you love die or yourself

I reserve my opinion on your President, since he has been democratically elected. His advisers are probably much smarter than he is, but he has the last word.

It can't be a coincidence that the only two presidents in the world who don't want to take action are Donald and Boris,Ah no, wait, Boris is going to do something

Anyway, I respect your opinion although I do not disagree at all, I hope you do not get to see something like what is happening here in Madrid, where the funeral services are no longer able to bury all the dead and have had to enable an ice-skating rink as a temporary morgue.

If someone in our family gets sick and is old, they are taken to the hospital, admitted to the intensive care unit and cannot receive any visitors, they die alone and you cannot go to their cremation.

I think it's sad enough to put the economy first
You do realize all of this is happening despite the economy on hold? You also realize countries with strong borders that closed them early have much fewer incidents/deaths?

And I respect that you have your opinions as well. :thumbsup:

Not sure I am being attacked, but it is eye opening how much the supposed parties of diversity try to squash differing opinions. :thumbsdown:

I am truly sorry and saddened that you are unable to see through your political goggles during a time of a crisis that should unify all of us. The problem with the president is not political, it’s lack of leadership, non-truth telling, impulsive decision making, wishful thinking, etc. None of that is political. Keep your political goggles on to your detriment. The rest of us see what’s right in front of us and are hoping and praying for actual leadership, not what we’re currently getting from this president. I won’t respond further to any of your replies as I am not interested in politics at this time.

The sad part is that you buy the MSM talking points hook line and sinker. The president is trying to get the nation past the fear of Covid 19 by talking about what happens after the lockdowns end. It will take a herculean effort to get people to believe it is safe to go on with day to day life. Covid 19 has to be put in context with the other risks that we live with on a day to day basis. Covid 19 is gonna take its deathly toll, we can't shut the economy down until the drugs, if any, or vaccine show up. Shelter in place makes sense where hot spots threaten to overwhelm local healthcare.

If he fails to rally the economy, there is a real risk that a lingering Great Recession or even a Depression is in our future. The scary part is that Democrats are already showing signs that they have no problem using Covid 19 as a political tool to tank the economy for political gain in the belief it will help their side. Think about that for a second, the D's are perfectly willing to kill your employer off so they can win an election.

I didn't even notice there was another topic on this outside of the political subforums. I'll just copy/paste my thoughts on Trump's latest response.

Trump's 'beautiful timeline' is calling for the US to be 'open' by Easter? Frankly, this isn't a plan, it is an aspiration. If all the experts are correct and it is about to get a lot worse over the next few weeks, this certainly won't happen.

Trump's tweets and speeches don't necessarily lead to actions, especially when this dumbass doublespeak 90% of the time with his 'not my responsibility' and 'out of my control' comments when things do not go his way.

Trump's supporters need to ask themselves, how dangerous is it in this time to have a leader who says things off the cuff, without thinking of the consequences, and doesn't particularly mean them? How many people will get sick because of this, and how many will die? Or if you prefer, how much will your 401k drop because of his misspeakings?

Trump gives reason to doubt medical experts and sow discord and ignorance to a minority of people who are already extremely ignorant and anti-scientific.

Trump tries to bake in the shock over the deaths. He compares it to the flu, he's giving his supporters and the propaganda networks an easy out when numbers spike; they'll just say 'well people die from the flu as well, no big deal.' We're already seeing this message echoed on social media and in the news. That's the point, in two or three weeks when we reach the apex they'll just say 'year we knew it was going to happen, so what.'

What Trump continually forgets to account for is the strain this will and is putting on our healthcare system, supply chains, workforce, and because of that our economic system. His strategy is continually shortsighted.

Also, this won't hit rural America nearly as hard as urban Americans. And if you think rural American Trump supporters have any sympathy for their fellow Americans you're wrong, as they love to 'own the libs' at every chance.

I hope everyone and their family are doing well, stay safe.
