What does a writer for health care quality improvement write about?

the essentiosity
of regular colonoscopies
turn, turn, turn the residents
because an early pressure ulcer
just looks a bit red
but stage four looks like someone
drilled for oil right through
the center of an elderly buttcheek
the wound care nurse will probe the site
carefully with a cotton swab
the smell will make you want to lose
your daily food intake
which should include less than 100 calories
from sugar per day
you didn't know that for years
we've been stifling your mother
with enough seroquel
to sedate a Clydesdale
we trained you all your life
to believe the doctor knows all
and he thinks so, too,
click on this link to take this self-directed learning module
so you can become activated
to take charge of your own health care
because no one else is
here's this free wallet card
with the signs of a stroke
call 911 in case
of emergency
this all would go away
if Americans just weren't so fat

  1. Hahaha! I'm doing my part to lessen the poundage of America. It's slow going, but at least it's going.
