Home Doctor, 2 edition

We performed ten focus groups with 30 nursing home doctors. Advance care planning; aspects of decisions on life-prolonging treatment, and conflict with next of kin were subject to in-depth analysis and condensation.

A substantial number of Norwegians spend their last days in nursing homes and approximately 45 % of all deaths occur here [1]. Nursing home residents are characterized by high age, frailty, chronic diseases and co-morbidity and deficits in activities of daily living [2, 3]. In a study from 2007, Selbaek, Kirkevold, and Engedal found that 60 % had moderate to severe cognitive impairment [4].

Eight of the 46 doctors were employed in full time positions and two in half time positions. The other 36 were primary care physicians who worked 20 % in the nursing homes. The majority of these split their time into 40 % presence at the nursing home and 60 % availability for telephone consultations.

We found major variations in the manner in which doctors reported their decisions to provide life-extending treatment, as well how they involve nursing home patients and their family members, both prior to, and in the relevant situations. Doctors gave different reasons for why they spoke with a patient and their family members. There were also different practices with regard to when these discussions took place, and with regard to who took the initiative for the discussion, whether only the patient participated, or only family members participated, or both, as well as the content of the discussions (Table 1).

Most doctors considered hospital admittance an acceptable topic for discussion with their patients and family members, unlike the topic of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), which many justified by stating that CPR should never be performed on nursing home patients, regardless of the circumstances.

Attitudes regarding confidentiality in relation to family members varied. Some doctors stated that they asked the patient for permission to involve family members, but many believed it was natural to have an open dialogue with the families of all patients at the nursing home, without having to ask the patient for permission.

To Doc Ock's surprise, MCU Peter stopped Doctor Strange from sending everyone home to meet their fates. When he questioned him as to why he didn't left them to die and be sent back to their universe like Doctor Strange intended, Doctor Octopus was told by the MCU MJ that it's not who he is. Doctor Octopus was offered an ultimatum by the MCU Peter, follow him to be "fixed" of their ailments or stay and accept their fate. Due to the MCU Peter having control of his tentacles, Doctor Octopus was forced to join the other villains as he was brought to a condominium belonging to a friend of his and his aunt May.

You can also do hemodialysis at home where you are the one doing your treatment. At home, you may be better able to fit your treatments into your daily schedule. Studies show that the more you know about your treatment and the more you do on your own, the better you are likely to do on dialysis.

New, easy-to-use machines are being developed for home hemodialysis. These are easier to set up, clean and disinfect. With some newer machines you have fewer supplies to store. If you think home hemodialysis is a good choice for you, ask your doctor about the best equipment for you.

Home hemodialysis is not a good fit for everyone. You need to learn a lot about it. You need to be willing to be responsible for your own treatment. As long as you and/or your care partner can pass the training and learn to place your needles, you should be able to do home hemodialysis.

Finding a center that offers home hemodialysis can be a challenge. If your center does not offer home hemodialysis, see below for Web sites that can help you find centers that offer home hemodialysis. Visit the center. Talk with the home training nurse and other staff. If possible, talk with home patients. Two things are needed for success: 1) a center and doctor willing to train you and follow your care and 2) your commitment to learn and do home hemodialysis for at least a year.

Most home hemodialysis programs ask you to have a care partner who is willing to be with you to help during each treatment. Your care partner can be a family member or friend. This person goes through the training with you so he or she can learn what to do. Sometimes, patients hire a nurse or technician to be their care partner. Medicare does not pay for these helpers, however.

The social worker at your dialysis center should give you information about coverage for home hemodialysis. Medicare pays for part of the cost and training. If you are 65 or older or disabled, you should already have Medicare. You can also get Medicare at any age if you have kidney failure and you or your spouse or parent worked long enough to qualify for Social Security. There are other sources that help pay for dialysis. Check with your social worker. He or she can also discuss any plumbing or wiring changes or additional costs that may occur with home hemodialysis.

Hospice care provides an array of services to people with advanced illnesses, as well as their families, so that they may remain in the comfort of their own home or nursing home. If a patient needs more advanced symptom management, inpatient care is available in a hospice facility, where staff members are available 24/7 to respond to questions or concerns. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.

This isn't necessarily crazy, but it mixes business with pleasure. Lots of residents buy houses thinking they'll rent them out as a sweet rental property when they move out. But they don't go into the purchase thinking like a landlord. They go into it thinking like a homeowner. Homeowners care about colors, backyards, neighbors, commute length, etc. Landlords care about the cold, hard numbers:

If you buy your duplex thinking like a homeowner, it likely won't be a great rental. If you buy it thinking like a landlord, it likely won't be a very satisfactory residence. Maybe you'll get lucky, but I wouldn't count on it.

This is where you buy a home with a doctor loan and then rent out the bedrooms. Did I mention you're a doctor? Leti and Kenji suggest this as an option during medical school or residency, but I challenge them to find a lender that offers doctor loans to medical students. I don't know of one.

That leaves residency, maybe. Do you really want to work an 80-hour week and then come home to deal with issues with your tenants/roommates? If you think landlording is tough, trying living with the tenants. Especially if you have a partner. Or children. Or work long hours. Or are trying to sleep after a long call or overnight shift. Sounds like a good way to flunk out of residency to me, and that's assuming you can pack enough roommates in and charge them enough to provide positive cash flow. More likely, you'll find you're using a significant chunk of your limited residency salary to keep the whole thing going until you are rescued by your attending income. But you wouldn't know it from the article:

Under the Independence at Home Demonstration, the CMS Innovation Center will work with medical practices to test the effectiveness of delivering comprehensive primary care services at home and if doing so improves care for Medicare beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions. Additionally, the Demonstration will reward health care providers that provide high quality care while reducing costs.

The Independence at Home Demonstration will build on these existing benefits by providing chronically ill patients with a complete range of primary care services in the home setting. Medical practices led by physicians or nurse practitioners will provide primary care home visits tailored to the needs of beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions and functional limitations.

The Independence at Home Demonstration also will test whether home-based care can reduce the need for hospitalization, improve patient and caregiver satisfaction, and lead to better health and lower costs to Medicare.

As part of their application, the participating practices were required to demonstrate experience providing home-based primary care to high-cost chronically ill beneficiaries. Participating practices include primary care practices and other multidisciplinary teams that:

The median annual wage for healthcare practitioners and technical occupations (such as registered nurses, physicians and surgeons, and dental hygienists) was $75,040 in May 2021, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $45,760; healthcare support occupations (such as home health and personal care aides, occupational therapy assistants, and medical transcriptionists) had a median annual wage of $29,880 in May 2021, which was lower than the median annual wage for all occupations.
