Please stop imagining that I am going to give Kimberly Clark Healthcare a positive mention at my blog. In my opinion, the US Government should have a comprehensive national health agency that provides healthcare rather than paying private providers or, worse, insurance companies to do so. Many clients would abandon for-profit care entirely if the federal government offered such a service, which is why the insurance companies and for-profit health care providers were so determined to take the public option out of the recent national health care legislation.
Instead of asking for positive mention at my blog, please poll the 40 million people in the United States who have no access to health care at all and ask them whether the health care industry is meeting their needs.

I sent you a couple of emails over the past few weeks but I hadn't heard back so I wanted to try you once more. Kimblery-Clark Healthcare has put together a website called "Not on My Watch" at www.haiwatch.com to educate patients and health care professionals about the problem of patients acquiring life-threatening infections in hospitals. Their goal is to eliminate these preventable illnesses and their often tragic consequences. Hospitals still have work to do to put an end to the ongoing, but very solvable issue.
I thought that you and the readers of The American Journal of Color Arousal would care about this matter and I was hoping you could post some information spread the word about protecting patients from preventable hospital infections. I've created a useful site that you're welcome to check out and grab resources from:
Please let me know if you have any questions or need more information. If you are able to post about this, I'd love it if you could send me the link.
Thank you so much,
