I don't know how, but it seems we need an aggressive awareness campaign that educates patients on cost.

I know healthcare is crazy expensive in many cases. But priorities have to be decided on and perspective with regards to cost/benefit needs to be understood.

This drug made me serverly ill. I had round the clock nasea for over three days, vomiting (couldn't eat) and diareah. Also couldn't sleep because my body was in such distress.

Perfectly Illuminated IV Line. Given the high number of patients hospitalized and nurses being overworked in some countries, there is a high chance the IV drip being ignored and stopped in time. I need not elaborate on the kind of complications that can arise out of this, which is why the IV ...
