It is hard to believe that today I am celebrating the 5th anniversary of starting this website, and when the day is over marching into my 6th. This site has come a long way since that cold day in December of 2008. As I state every year when this day comes around, the main reason I started this site was to state the truth of what was going on in our City and not have the lies and bs of Joe Albero be what people believed. I have accomplished that goal as only the blind cult members remain that support him or his site.He is a non factor in the area now as all that is on his laughable site is copy and paste from all over the Country .
The other great thing that has been accomplished in the past year was finally the removal from office of the Queen of hatefulness who had held this area under siege. That person was the one and only, thank goodness, Debbie Campbell. The way the citizens finally stood together and gave her a humiliating defeat to send her packing has been the highlight of my year, that along with the aforementioned moron getting humiliated by Jim Ireton.
The thing many don’t realize about this site is the number of nasty cowardly anonymous comments that are left every day that I laugh at and yet wonder what kind of human beings could say some of the stuff I have read. The thing is to all you idiots who don’t like me keep them coming in, because the fact is undeniable you cant get enough of my site or you wouldn’t be here.

I would like to point out how Obama-care is causing the changes at PRMC. The new rule is, if a patient is re-admitted within 30 days of their discharge medicare/cade does not pay the hospital. I would like to put this in the context of 3 common examples.
1- Patient comes into hospital with a heart attack- they are stabilized and found to be a candidate for open heart surgery. The patient is discharged home for a week or less to gain strength for the surgery. The patient is readmitted for surgery- NO PAY for open heart surgery!
2- A patient has cancer. The patient is on a 21 day cycle of chemotherapy and has to be admitted for 1 or 2 days to take their treatment. The patient is admitted for the first treatment, discharged and is admitted again 21 days later for their next treatment. This cycle is subsequently repeated. NO PAY for subsequent treatments!
3- A patient is admitted for an exacerbation of a chronic condition (i.e. Heart Failure and others). The patient is admitted, stabilized, and discharged. When the patient goes home they have trouble taking or refuse to take their new medications to treat their condition. The patient is readmitted within 30 days due to their medication failure- NO PAY for subsequent admission!
1+2+3= ALOT OF $$$
Maryland, under O’Mally’s leadership, has been the most aggressive state in implementing Obama-care. No hospital in Maryland is currently turning a profit- a direct result of the 30 day rule!
I agree that shutting down the transitional care unit makes business sense, since there are other facilities (Healthsouth and others) who can provide this service. But, the transitional care unit is a small fraction of the real problem that PRMC is facing.
PRMC as a whole has effectively positioned itself for the new healthcare landscape. They have invested in outpatient facilities to focus on keeping people out of the hospital while maintaining cash flow. The hospital will still be there for acute care, but the goal is to decrease the need for acute care.
There will be ALOT of changes coming to healthcare in our country- some good, some bad. FOR SURE it will include more layoffs at PRMC! It will take time, but, I am confident that PRMC will recover and become a streamlined business.
Blogger Attacks Other Bloggers
ATTN. MARYLAND TOWNIE
I will give you ONE warning and this one is it. Either you pull ALL of your Websites within 24 hours or I will expose you to the entire world, including your Wife.
I’m sure the people of Princess Anne will enjoy learning ALL of the nasty things you have said over the years about my Wife and Grandson.
More importantly, should you not completely remove your Anti Albero Blogs right away I will also expose your connection with Chuck Cook and Mayor Jim Ireton as well.
You see Folks, Salisbury News now has all the information necessary to sue Rob & Julie. We have always kept a running record of those people who have defamed my Wife and Grandson over the years as we knew there would come a day when we would find out who these people are. Perhaps F.P. Winters would like to know about your past as well.
Pull those Websites or expect to hire a lawyer because NO ONE attacks my Wife and Grandson like a coward hiding behind fictitious names and gets away with it.
As for Mayor Jim Ireton and Chuck Cook, you screw with me in this upcoming election and I will expose everything. Just remember boys, the depositions will include ALL of you. The information we’ll be able to disclose will destroy your political careers forever. I’m sure Governor O’Malley would be very interested in learning what I know as well.
If you think I’m playing, try me. You ALL have 24 hours to shut down or we’re filing suit against ALL of you.
