Bedpan is a memoir about the author's experiences with the American healthcare industrial complex spanning seven decades.
There's a paradox. Public and private healthcare providers are dedicated to keeping people alive and free of disease, but, at the same time, they must financially profit to maintain themselves.
Meanwhile, the industry keeps its heart thumping and pumping based on continually expanding the number of patients who consume the latest pharmaceuticals, visit doctors, and are diagnosed by the newest machines. It’s better that people stay a little sick rather than be cured from a profit-and-loss standpoint.
At last check, according to the Social Security Administration actuary chart, the author has 10.4 years to go. He conjectures his death at 79. He's had a flirt with death every 20 years or so, most recently, surviving an exotic lung disease in 2013. His next meet-up with the Grim Reaper will likely be the last.
"We all have unique experiences as we move through life. Being at the top of my game has been hard work. I prefer to have positive influences on others I meet." Alan O'Hashi
