On the blogs: web cams, nursing time, artists and the healthcare law
On Blog, M.D., Boston pediatric oncologist Dr. Samuel Blackman relates a tale of a web camera being left on in a patient's room when the child was being treated for a problem. He asks how far a parent or relative should go in taping the healthcare of their loved one.
Nurse at small, a blog by Betsy Baumgartner about her experiences at a Boston teaching hospital, tells what it's like when she can't spend as much time with a patient as she or the patient would like. "I wish I could have been there for you, but there was only one of me and four of you.'
WBUR's CommonHealth hears from artist Kathleen Bitetti, who is executive director of the Artists Foundation. The working artists she represents make up a key test population for the state's new healthcare law, she says. And they have something in common with public policy makers.
"Artists create things that never existed on a regular basis."
