Medical research and medical care have improved life in America, but the scene is darkening, and it may be that further advances will be restrained and even reversed. Employers have decided to reduce the costs of medical care for their employees, insurance companies have organized clinics and hospitals to emphasize reduced costs of care rather than increased quality of care, and physicians are finding it difficult to even maintain present standards of care.
Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, physicians, nurses, technicians and staff are being discarded even while patients are finding longer waits for shorter visits with physicians seeing increasing numbers of sicker patients.
These stark facts are growing increasingly painful, and America must not allow a further deterioration of medical care. We, all of us, patients, physicians, employers, politicians, and especially healthy family members, must rally to our threatened medical care system. Our sick patients, our busy physicians, cannot do this by themselves. It is now time to demand a restoration of medical standards and a re-dedication to the improvement of life in America.
