Politics as Usual?
With Rick Santorum’s departure in the political race, Mitt Romney and President Obama are in a tight sprint, according to this morning’s New York Times. Says the article, “Mitt Romney has solidified support within his party for the presidential nomination after Rick Santorum’s exit from the race, but is locked in a tight race with President Obama as attention turns to the general election phase of the campaign.” The article elaborates on how registered voters as well as Republican primary voters are “showing strong enthusiasm” for Romney. As we’ve covered in our blogs before, how would a change in the White House impact you, professionally speaking? Would changes in patient care delivery models come to a screeching halt or would it be “business as usual” in the effort to improve quality of patient care? Would you be more inclined to hire additional medical professionals or acquire new instrumentation? Under take new construction enhancements to a wing/department or the hospital overall? Or, will it be more of a “wait-and-see” approach?
