A Hospital Chief's Auld Lang Syne for 2013
We'll best our quality scores this year and be acute care heroes.
We'll learn from all our past mistakes, and slice our RFOs to zeros.
And dare we ponder Exeter's plight, that "serial infector" creep
Who, thank God, never came in contact with our own catheterization suite.
Should we fret our lapsed CME, and worry past background checks?
Did we lock our med stations tight to thwart drug diversion thefts?
We'll hike our quality scores this year and be acute care heroes.
We'll learn from all our past mistakes, and down our ne'er events to zeros.
We chose to eschew the mobile app, with all its fancy features,
Though it would enable us to track our patients long after their procedures.
Should we regret procrastinating, on ICD-10, or EHR MU?
For now the deadline's passing, we're not getting incentives boost.
(Yes, woe is us.)
We'll click our quality scores this year and be acute care heroes
We'll learn from all our past mistakes, and chop our data errors to zeros.
We paid no mind to Medicaid, or the High Court's June decision,
Or that the state we live in, holds state-run Exchanges in derision.
We waited out the Romney threat that PPACA he would repeal,
Though now fear that Congress factions would, money from it steal.
