Profit is indeed necessary



Re: Privatize hospital pharmacies (PM Mailbag Friday 29 May 2015) – I agree Bill, with much of what you have to say but, barring privatizing prescription drugs, an audit of pricing and appropriate reductions should be made. Profit is indeed necessary but not in the amounts charged by many hospitals. As much as I like leering, oops, I mean admiring the “welcomers” they and a significant number of other physician support staff are unnecessary. That all being said, I think an audit of all non medically related hospital services would be in order. Do you return the salute of the fellow guiding people onto elevators?
