This past week more CT scans, MRIs, dopplers, etc., were done on a patient with a fractured hip because she has- are your ready- mild to moderate pain in the upper leg. She should be grateful that she never had severe pain. She was ambulating from the day I received her and never complains at night, which is when the achy/can't sleep issues arise for others similarly situated.
This is where a lot of those healthcare dollars are going. I really think that someone should stop the use of the pointless, expensive tests.
