Body Filling Healthcare

For those of you who followed the last four posts know how I was going on about healthcare, or maybe I should say health “administration”.  Apparently Island Health was reading as well.  I did receive a pleasant note from Island Health suggesting I contact the Patient Care Quality Office which I have declined to do.  I […]
