Kathryn Kuhlman. Walmart Greeter. Tragedy at Sutter Hospital. Whiz Kid Cameron Harris. HP Printers | Show 424
If any of you remember the late great televangelist Katheryn Kuhlman then your just about as old as we are! We couldn’t help ourselves so we open the show with some words of wisdom from Ms. Kuhlman.
And we check in on what is happening at Sutter Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland, California. As many of you know, over 23000 nurses went on a one-day strike against Sutter Health here in Northern California. At issue are cuts that impact patient safety. As planned the nurses were only out one day and were ready to go back to work when Sutter Health announced they would be locked out for an additional 4 days. During that lock out a patient died from what is described as a “medical error,” while under the care of a 23-year old replacement nurse. We’ll have an update on this unfortunate tragedy.
Meg Whitman is back! That’s right it’s our old friend Meg Whitman, former CEO of e-Bay, unsuccessful candidate for California Governor and now CEO for Hewlett Packard. You won’t believe what she’s up to now! She has an offer for the nurses and you’ll have to listen to the show to find out what it is.
And whiz kid Cameron Harris joins us. Cameron is our resident expert on Type 1 diabetes and has his own podcast show called In Range. On the show Cameron gives great tips and information on how to live a healthy life with Type 1. Cameron himself was diagnosed with the decease when he was 8. Listen and you’ll understand why we call him a whiz kid. For more information about In Range visit www.harwoodpodcasts.com.
