"Stability and personal space. She got her own room and special care from doctors. Simple hospital has identified hundreds of patients like Rita people who get their character Medicaid who have unstable housing and who often make avoidable, expensive trips to the emergency room. Last summer, just as Rita was about to hit the six month limit for staying in her latest recovery home. She got a call from a program called Housing Smart. The program, works with Temple Hospital and offered her a free apartment. Rita remembers the day she got the call. I said What Housing. People are on the phone for you about a place I was like. It was like a dream. Last year, Temple and its health insurance partners offered a place to live to 25 patients who are homeless or housing, insecure and showing up to the hospital a lot. The hope was that the stable housing would help improve their overall health and lower their hospital costs. Less than a year later, as Rita sits on the floor of her second floor apartment, she says she's feeling healthier supported. And it's generally taking better care of herself. The one bedroom is small but warm. There's a beach couch and the TV where she likes to relax. It feels really good just to be able to breathe again. To have that ultimate privacy in that space, you know, again and my peace of mind, and Rita has not been back to the ER. This innovative housing program is part of a larger movement, pushing health systems to pay for overall help. Not just health care. J I. Sola leads the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Health Equity Advancement, She says doctors are trained to treat conditions like hypertension and diabetes. But they're not usually train to also think about how racial and economic factors contribute to housing problems and chronic disease. Perhaps they self identify as black and they've been discriminated in the housing sector because of redlining so that by the time you're seeing them at your clinic There's a myriad of social systems that have acted in concert with each other to set the stage for this person to be more at risk and have a disadvantage of another person. And the question is When we ignore that what happens among the 25 patients in Temple Hospitals Housing Smart program, emergency room visits have dropped dramatically by 75%. The new studies of these programs presents a mixed picture. For instance, health researchers at the University of Pennsylvania gave out free rides to some.

"This was back in May. OK on how I along with four other veterans caught it was very suspicious because they kept it hidden from us. We were we were there were like, trust me, 50. Veterans, most of them Vietnam era veterans, which are older who are older. They're like, you know, they're in their late sixties early seventies, and many of those guys had pre existing conditions. So we were there at this shelter, and it was when I say shelter. Some people say what might be a downtrodden down run place? No, it's It was a very nice place, and we were all there because we were awaiting some kind of housing assistance. Okay from being homeless, So the building itself was good that the staff seemed to be OK, but at first, but it turned out that five of us on our floor. There was several floors and Five of us on our force tested positive for it. And we wondered how that happened. Because the guys on the third floor also about 25 s had all tested negative. And we're how long do we okay? How do we catch it? Well, it turned out that our staff person on our floor had been missing for several weeks. And we were wondering about what words Charles that you know. Where did Ugo well turns out that he actually caught it? He was in the hospital in the staff knew it, but they didn't tell us. That's why we couldn't get the The director of the program to meet with us on the fourth floor. They met with the guys in the circle, but they wouldn't meet with us. They knew that we had already been exposed. Now there was no medical staff there to assist and all that. But anyway, so we went to this process. So I caught this stuff along with two other guys. When did this happen? By the way, Mark, When did this happen, Inmate? Okay. May I wanted the hospital May 19th Okay. Uh, three of us caught it. And one of us actually ended up dying now the other two guys that caught it. We're both Vietnam era betters in their late sixties, right? It's 70. And, uh, One. They both had preexisting conditions. I do not have any pre existing conditions, so I was afraid I wasn't I've never been afraid of death, but anyway So I called viral pneumonia. But the interesting thing about it is Aiso that Went because I went to the hospital when the Temple Hospital and in Philadelphia anyway, I was there for about eight days, but, well, I was there for several days. And they gave me l g, which I guess is an antibody. Is that what it is? A G r The Ivy I G Metal in the I V. I G. Yeah, it starts. Yeah. Now. Well, you called it positive. Yeah. So you were cold and positive and they give you energy. Okay? Okay, so, so we're gonna be coming up on breaks and Mark tell us why you think it's kind of like the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies are all all in on it. Well, the thing is that once when they were gonna, uh Uh, discharge me and then send me to a quarantine, which they did. They didn't get retest me and I asked my ward about the tests, and they said, Well, what? Testes orange. You're gonna retest me to see that I'm okay. Oh, no, You don't need to test so then I went to quarantine for 2 2.5 weeks and before I left there, I also ask about The test because I was still having some symptoms. I had dizziness OK and And so anyway, they wouldn't retest Master. Well, this is peculiar. Why won't you retest? Let me and and markets and weapon. I'll tell you why they didn't retest you because our tests stink. The tests were positive for weeks. And they're not. It's not like diabetes test where we could see your numbers Go back down. The tests are really faulty. And so when somebody has it, we're not retesting him because they could be positive. Look at George Floyd. He was positive for weeks on. Maybe you gotta twice. Maybe he didn't. But that's why they're not testing because it's going to still keep saying positive and they don't know what to do with those results. Here's the thing. I just find it see the medical field supposed to be have a standard high standard. You know, there's a lot of intelligent people like yourself that are in the medical industry, medical field and their standards. There has to be standards. If without just she just just Here's a relationship. Just like my money should have a standard. Well, I mean, he was taken over a long time ago, and it's been eroding, eroding eroding, and that's why there's gonna be right around the corner from the hyperinflation because all the money they printed so that would agree with America. The reason why we're American. We're supposed to be a free country and a better country, a place to live as well. The immigrants want to come in here like from everywhere. It's because we live in a higher standard hydrated market enters without a high standard. Yeah, Yeah, You're right. It's half ass. I agree. Mark, We're coming up on break. I'm gonna address this after the break. I agree with you, and then there's some things. I disagree with you, but I'll talk about it after the break. Thanks for calling it. God bless. Don't go in,.

"Independent dots independent life this is Chad Benson we know that a lot of states opened up before the number of cases had really declined to open up too quickly without good safeguards in and so we are seeing the spike in cases and it's worth remembering that we're still quite early in the pandemic we have a long way to go and we really have to put in the kind of measures that'll keep us safe over the next twelve or eighteen months before the pandemic is over doctor Shaw would you say we have a long way to go but a short time to get there he said that Swachh all smoky right Dr Ashish Shaw I probably screwed that up so leave it alone talking about we're still early in this pandemic right we're very early in the pandemic but the reality is stop start mapping we are doing more testing and that's hard of the reason but much of it is because we some more infections there's lots of other data we're looking at including the fact the hospitalization rates are going up more testing wouldn't explain more hospitalizations the way I look at the hospitalization slash I I wanna see stuff that is that's real this tangible testing you know what you look you could have a million people test positive tomorrow but it doesn't go to the hospital well then you have ten test tomorrow temple hospital that's far worse what's the hospitalization rates what does that look like what's the bed capacity so right now is your capacity that's why is it some states their capacities fine other states it's getting a little cramped why is that is it because eighty percent of the people in that hospital there in those beds are covered patients or are you making up three months in some areas to months and others of not having elective surgeries so you're doing as many as possible and a majority of people taking up the beds or people that are there for other reasons than covert those are tangible and real thus the covert side of things just think about this for a second you pay more money forever COPD patients I know that sounds weird but it's true so you get paid more money to have a COPD patient someone when you want to go to page even if they're there for something else we tested positive so gonna put you down for your next six hundred Bucks a day but I was here for knee replacement you'll be fine what are the real things that's what matters the real tangible that we can look at which is hospital beds and the lack of hospital beds in particular ICO's that's a very real thing that you look at ago I that's dangerous that's dangerous that's the reality of it is not going anywhere anytime soon and the question that's out there that scares a lot of business owners big and small is could there be a second one that's basically if you wait too long and once your hospital start getting full then you don't really have very many choices so many of us have been calling for weeks to slow things down to get rid of things like night clubs in large indoor gatherings to ask people to wear masks all of that prevents lockouts but if we don't do those things and yet some point we're gonna find ourselves with no other choice but a lockdown it's possible it's possible we could be headed back there I don't think we'll see a lock down the way we saw before I think what we're going to see in the future is because you're not gonna get the genie back in the bottle by people are like sorry you know at first of all you've got file G. right he's doing his hearings and what not today and you know there is out there doing the stuff you you you told everybody a week ago well the whole thing at first as I told you guys not to wear a mask is we need to those P. P. is for other people so wait a minute you told you told American not to wear a mask you're totally fine the fact that you knew that that was something that you should probably be doing the World Health Organization within twelve hours of saying well the math doesn't really do anything what you should wear the mask wait what you've got anti massacres and you've got pro masters it's crazy so all that being said if there's going to be shut down it'll be shut downs in the line of certain industries will be told Hey sorry nightclub you guys are following the rules and check it out they're gonna start to limit an after action they're not gonna shut things down because the genie is already out the bottle try to put it back in you can't you can't because you allowed people in the George Floyd incident that was horrific to do what they should be doing which is pro testing what was going on you allowed that to happen as you should the beauty of our country in saying that try to tell people now know you can't do this that's that's too much too much so where we go from here is can be very interesting because we're still in the midst of the first wave is there going to be a second wave or just can be continuous so we're not gonna get arrested at all I don't know because I was told to be seasonal by June hi I'm not talking about trump noon April can be done and but by June it was supposed to be pretty much disappearing and then we were gonna have a pretty calm July August September start to look back to this is the potential but I've heard fifty thousand different things you put twenty scientists and doctors in the room you're gonna get twenty different answers because this thing is so new it so now three two three five three twenty four twenty three action events and shows your Twitter tweet I mean you can text the program as well last night going after that pesky Andrew Jackson right now I'm here a lot.
