The Vivian J Lamb Lecture Series: Dr. Victoria Sweet


.
---Laguna Honda Hospital - ''was the pet of San Francisco''
Dr. Victoria Sweet lecture at Villanova University. She repeats some material, but goes a bit deeper at times. She mentions that we need to take back healthcare in someway. I, personally, see things in a way that should include the recipient as a viable voice...in the mix. A set of questions should be devised that his (the patient's) answers reveal his (the patient) true feeling(s) on the subject. I came upon the scene in 2002 when LHH was in the firm grasp of a DPH machine that had most of the movement of the nursing + administation office done. The rays of sunshine that I felt with Lumetra,  David Farrell and the EDEN ALTERNATIVE...were easily trampled by the running of the hospital as a business where we found that resident-centered care was easily trumped by budget-centered care.
