I Have Now Switched from Smoking to Vaping

I have been a cigarette smoker for 25 years, and I have never been a big fan of the smoke in my home. I recently met and married a great lady who does not like it at all. As a result, I do it outside instead of inside the home we now share. But recently, she suggested an alternative when she mentioned that if I want to try out an e cigarette uk has many sites where I can buy one. I had seen people inhaling on these interesting looking tubes when I have been out and about, but I wasn’t sure what they are until she explained them in detail.

Basically, you buy a clearomizer that is run by a very simple battery. Read the rest of this entry »

A career in healthcare has long been associated with doctors and nurses in their crisp white uniforms delivering care to patients. But there is an entire workforce that functions tirelessly, away from the glaring lights, to support these primary care givers and ensure the smooth delivery of healthcare.

Among these men and women are the healthcare administrators or managers on whose shoulders rests the responsibility of managing and running a healthcare organization.

Why Healthcare?

If you are the crossroads of choosing a career, then this is as exciting a time as any to get a healthcare administration degree and enter this profession.

Is Your Health Care Taking Care of You?

Is your health care taking care of you? Yes, Health Care Reform or Obamacare is now law and a tax. This means everyone will have options to protect their family or attempt to protect their families. Health Care Reform in my opinion helped many people that could not get coverage, but it will come with a hefty price tag. Some companies that had great insurance programs also had to rethink strategies when it came to covering you. Why? Well if the insurance companies are at a higher risk financially, they had to spread out their risks. This comes into increasing premiums even to the healthy individuals. Now, you may be thinking, but it has to be affordable. This is true if you have just the required coverage, and the fact is the deductibles are increased.

Feeling Like You Have Been Left Out In The Cold?

I have talked to many people and they thought they were covered, but after talking to them, the general consensus is they were not. When they looked at the co-payments and deductibles, many felt that just meeting the general sickness that a family would have or the broken bones, that they would be out in the cold and impacted financially.

I have also been told that they feel like they are insuranced out. They say too many insurances being required. I get this. In a recent Harvard Study, it shows 80% of people are living paycheck to paycheck. So, if insurance is not covering them financially, they wonder what they can do. Taxes and insurance eat up the paycheck. Read the rest of this entry »

Planning and Design of Behavioral Healthcare Facilities

Behavioral Healthcare Facilities: The Current State of Design

In keeping with most districts of healthcare, the marketplace has seen a boom in the construction of Behavioral Healthcare facilities. Contributing to this increase is the paradigm shift in the way society views mental illness. Society is placing a heavier value on the need to treat people with serious addictions such as alcohol, prescription and elicit drugs. A large percentage of people suffering from behavioral disorders are afflicted with both mental and addictive behaviors, and most will re-enter communities and either become contributors or violators.

These very specialized facilities do not typically yield the attention from today’s top healthcare designers and their quantity accounts for a small fraction of healthcare construction. However, Behavioral Healthcare projects are increasing in number and are being designed by some very prominent architectural firms such as Cannon Design and Architecture Plus. Many are creating state-of-the-art, award-winning contemporary facilities that defy what most of us believe Behavioral Healthcare design to be.
