Dr. Eric Forsthoefel Fighting For Safer Emergency Rooms

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel thinks we need to stop advertising wait times in emergency rooms. You may have seen a billboard on the side of the road that displays the wait time in minutes with an LED clock. You might even catch the billboard changing times as you drive by.

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel believes these advertisements encourage people to use the ER as they would their primary physician. He has seen a precipitous rise in the number of people receiving primary care at his ER in Florida. He doesn’t shy away from these patients. Instead, he treats them with dignity and respect. He also instructs his staff to treat them completely before they leave the ER.

Therein lies the rub. Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is determined to treat every person that walks into his ER but he knows the dangers that these patients are creating. An overcrowded ER becomes more and more difficult to manage. He and his staff become stretched thin as they try to administer primary care to non-urgent patients while simultaneously administering emergency care to critical patients. This juggling act can only go on so long before someone gets hurt, says Dr. Eric Forsthoefel.

The doctor has thought long and hard about the problem. And, like any good doctor, he has focused on the facts to come up with this surprisingly easy solution. Unfortunately, it is up to other members of the medical community to execute the solution. It’s out of Dr. Eric Forsthoefel’s hands to clean up his own ER.

His solution — Make primary care physicians more accessible with expanded evening hours and updated office locations. He also wants hospitals to stop advertising ER wait times which trick people into thinking that the ER is open for business.

It comes down to convenience, says Dr. Eric Forsthoefel. More than 80% of non-urgent patients in the emergency room are insured. Insurance and money are not the problems. In fact, uninsured patients dare not step into an emergency room for fear of insurmountable medical bills. This actually kills uninsured people, but that’s another topic for another time.

The problem is convenience. It’s convenience for Medicaid patients as well as the traditionally insured. Medicaid patients find it difficult to find a primary care physician. Many doctors will not take on Medicaid patients which forces them into the ER to receive treatment. And the traditionally insured find the ER to be more convenient than care through a primary physician.

Insured patients like the fact that they can see a specialist during one ER visit. It can take multiple visits to see a similar specialist through a primary doctor. And the insured like the fact that they receive same-day service at the ER.

The Development of OSI Group

OSI Group started its operation in providing processed value-added protein in 1990 in Toledo, Spain. The company began as a local firm serving only Illinois. Today, the group runs above 60 facilities in various countries across the world. The firm concentrates on the processing of pork, beef, and chicken products. At the start of this year, the company finished the extension of the production capacity of quality chicken products. The broadening market demand for chicken products in Portugal and Spain spearheaded the development. The production of chicken products increased by 50 percent giving 24,000 tons annually. The development led to an increase in the overall production capacity to 45,000 tons periodically. The primary concern of OSI Group is to offer customer-oriented, affordable and consistent products.

Thus, the group added its work forces by 20 workers to the initial 140. The product development manager is the most crucial post in the 20 positions. The office is to manage the trend of the current products and introduces new ones to the firm’s portfolio. The improvement helps the group to get ready for the anticipated continuously increasing demand for meat products. Therefore, the firm sets strategies for future competition and to satisfy the broadening market and remain the leading company in providing processed food. OSI Group runs under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin. The leader helps the firm in the transformation in the economic development phase as a financial consultant.

Also, the group added to its working space a total of 22,600 square feet. The firm introduced indoor and outdoor cameras to boost the security surveillance system. Other additional amenities are new receiving and shipping area, waste container storage, nitrogen and hot water tanks, and social area for the workers. OSI Group intends to create a strong branding in the entire world. In 2016, the company opened the Tyson Food Plant to improve services to North America. In 2017, the firm went ahead to purchase the Flagship Europe to offer quality services to the UK and renaming it as the Creative Food Europe. The recent achievement is buying of the leading portion in Baho Food.

Nick Vertucci’s Life is a Lyric

Nick Vertucci is the founder of Nick Vertucci’s Real Estate Academy — NVREA. If you wanted a couple of lines from a song to describe Nick Vertucci’s life, you’d be hard pressed to do better than these two lines from Frank Sinatra’s rendition of That’s Life.

Each time I find myself flat on my face I pick myself up and get back in the race.

Nick’s childhood was anything but wealthy, but that wasn’t a problem — kids are tough. Then he lost his father at only ten years old. That was a problem. But soon after turning 18, Nick seized the bit and took control of his destiny. He founded a thriving business selling computer accessories. But then came the dot-com economic crash of the early 2000’s. Nick nearly lost everything. But like the lyric above, Nick Vertucci did indeed pick himself back up, and he did get back in the race.

By 2004 Nick had taken a real estate training course and was divesting himself of his struggling, debt-laden retail technology business, and embracing life as a real estate investor. In the beginning, he literally knocked on doors as he sought out suitable residential properties to flip. He soon began offering others the chance to invest in the properties he was buying, rehabbing, and ultimately flipping. Many of these investors found Nick through his radio show “The Real Estate Investing Hour.”

Things were booming, and Nick wanted to share his knowledge and investment opportunities with others. That was the impetus that drove him to create the Nick Vertucci Real Estate School (NVREA).

Nick Vertucci teaches four simple steps to successful real estate investing.

  1. See the opportunity.
  2. Believe it. Many people never acknowledge that they don’t sincerely believe in their proposed course of action.
  3. Map it. You’ve got to have a plan
  4. Execute it. Yeah, this is the hard one. You can stand on the diving board and dream about the beautiful swan dive you see in your mind’s eye, but ultimately… you going to have to jump.

You can learn even more about Nick from his latest book, Seven Figure Decisions: Having the Balls to Succeed.

Interview with Chainsmokers DJ/singer – Alex Pall

Alex Pall is one-half of the EDM duo Chainsmokers, who recently had an interview with Interview Magazine. The duo released a song just yesterday called “Closer” with singer Halsey. In the interview, Pall goes into speaking about his roots and growing up with an interest to become a DJ. He used to DJ in New York City and had a strong interest in dance music specifically. After meeting his other half Drew, they formed a partnership and formed a bond that can never be broken. What started out as a hobby, turned into a successful full-time partnership. Both worked hard to fund their dreams and formed an identity. Pall explains that an important aspect of his music is connecting with people who listen on a deep level. The path is very much to Pall as a “journey of self-discovery and checking yourself.” They managed to surprise many people as their fame soared through the roof. The duo realized that they needed to be unique with so much competition from other DJ’s and artists. Pall explains that the two share their own past experiences in their songs and write some of them themselves. Something that makes them completely different from other artists out. Pall also talked about working with other artist Halsey, who has been rising in fame. He described working with her as “incredible, very cool, unique, and number 1 on that list of people they wanted to work with.” The song with Halsey “Closer” was produced by the duo. Pall has used Instagram to see individuals who really connect with their work singing along to their songs, either strangers and family. Pall noticed that many people aged between 16 to 25 listen to their music typically. He has also noticed that they are reaching more people internationally. The duo performs their own music live, which is different from traditional DJs today. The duo wants to keep improving and working hard, but more importantly, give people new experiences.
