OBs: DO YOU LOOK GOOD IN AN ORANGE JUMPSUIT? You could eventually be wearing Orange Jumpsuits if you don't stop closing birth canals up to 30%. For details, see PREGNANT WOMEN below. I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. See below. THE CODING INSTITUTE AND ORANGE JUMPSUITS... Samantha Gardiner, president of The Coding Institute.com asks: "Do You Look Good in An Orange Jumpsuit?...That could be your attire if you don't know the target areas of the [Medicare Office of the Inspector General]...Medicare...fraud investigations are heating up...Find out...what federal and state investigators will be scrutinizing in the months ahead...ncover the secrets to avoiding fraud investigations during 2004....." --Codinginstitute advertisement, Medical News Wire 03/01/04 OBs: The Medicare (DHHS?) Office of the Inspector General apparently has jurisdiction over some births: "Medicare covers...6,000 of the 4 million US deliveries a year." http://www.acog.org/from_home/publications/press_releases/nr09-25- 03.cfm OPEN LETTER (archived for global access at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2343) Samantha Gardiner President The Coding Institute 2272 Airport Road South Naples, FL 34112 239-261- 4335 / 800-508-2582 [email protected] Samantha, I *liked* your "Do You Look Good In An Orange Jumpsuit" advertisement for your teleconference! You solicit suggestions: "We would love to hear from you...Please feel free to contact us with any comments, suggestions, or feedback. http://codinginstitute.com/contact.html SUGGESTIONS 1. I suggest that federal and state health fraud investigators should be scrutinizing OBSTETRICIANS in the months ahead. Obstetricians are KNOWINGLY closing birth canals up to 30%! In ACOG's Shoulder Dystocia Drill video, American MDs purport to tell each other how to allow birth canals to open maximally when shoulders get stuck - which means MDs know they are CLOSING birth canals most of the time. The kicker is that ACOG's method of allowing the birth canal to open actually keeps it closed! See ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2300 2. I suggest further that the Coding Institute should mention the obvious birth-canal-closing obstetric health fraud in all its teleconferences. Teleconference participants could inform pregnant friends and relatives about the fraud - tell them how to OPEN their birth canals - and begin encouraging state and federal health fraud investigators to stop OBs from CLOSING birth canals. As noted above, the Medicare (DHHS?) Office of the Inspector General apparently has jurisdiction over some births: "Medicare covers...6,000 of the 4 million US deliveries a year." http://www.acog.org/from_home/publications/press_releases/nr09-25- 03.cfm ATTORNEY WAYNE J. MILLER (www.reish.com) Samantha, your "Orange Jumpsuit" teleconference involves attorney Wayne J. Miller, a founding partner of the Compliance Law Group, Los Angeles, a law firm focused on health care industry legal compliance. Maybe Wayne knows birth trauma attorneys who are not afraid to tell juries that MDs are closing birth canals? According to the www.reish.com website, "Wayne is a frequent speaker to physician and hospital associations on healthcare topics." http://www.reish.com/attorneys/Bios/miller_w.OLD I'll copy Wayne at [email protected] Wayne, since you are a frequent speaker to physician and hospital associations on healthcare topics... Please tell physicians and hospital associations to tell MD-obstetricians: If you must push or pull - and sometimes you must - first get the woman off her sacrum - off her butt/back. Hospitals will want to PREVENT huge jury verdicts by stopping OBs... See Atila the OB, hospitals ordered to pay $63 million... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2340 PREGNANT WOMEN: It's true: MDs, MBs and midwives (esp. CNMwives) are closing birth canals up to 30%. To allow your birth canal to OPEN the "extra" up to 30% simply roll onto your side as you push your baby out. Or go to hands-and-knees, or kneel or stand or squat - LOTS of "alternative" delivery positions allow the birth canal to open the "extra" up to 30%. Talk to your MD, MB or midwife about this today. BEWARE THOUGH: Some MDs, MBs and midwives (esp. CNMwives; see below) like semisitting so much they allow women to labor in "alternative" positions but then move them to semisitting (close their birth canals!) for the actual delivery! Make sure your MD, MB, or midwife promises not to close your birth canal as you push your baby out! LADIES: I say again, obstetricians are KNOWINGLY closing birth canals up to 30%! See again: ACOG birth crime video evidence http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2300 I am in favor of pardons in advance for MDs. MDs are just academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school. Thanks for reading everyone. Sincerely, Todd Dr. Gastaldo [email protected] PS1 Readers, I know nothing about Samantha's/The Coding Institute's teleconferences, but they seem useful, so... The Coding Institute's '2004 Regulatory Update for Billers and Coders' teleconference (Atty Wayne Miller will participate) happens this Thursday, March 4 at 1:00 pm ET (12pm CT/ 11am MT/ 10 am PT)...Register today by clicking here http://codinginstitute.com/offer/1746 or by calling 800-508-2582. PS2 SOME **MIDWIVES** COULD BE WEARING ORANGE JUMPSUITS... A midwife reportedly asked snidely (as she placed Dagny semisitting to deliver): "BEEN READING TODD GASTALDO HAVE YOU?" (emphasis added) Dagny, WHAT!? A midwife placed you semisitting for delivery as she said, "Been reading Todd Gastaldo have you?" (??!!) This midwife either hasn't read WHY I say don't place women semisitting - OR she is a "prisoner of protocol" - willing to risk sacrificing lives and limbs and vaginas. She is obviously CRIMINALLY endangering lives and limbs and vaginas. The fact that DAs do not yet prosecute this obvious crime does not mean it is not a crime. See Attn DAs: Mass birth child abuse (MAJOR error in Williams Obstetrics) http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2310 Dagny, your midwife's bizarre birth behavior reminds me that Yale CNMwifery Prof. Helen Varney ignored my pleas years ago and STILL writes (in the 2004 edition of her text) that "midwives" (not just CNMwives!) promote semisitting. See Odent on forceps (also: midwives 'prisoners of protocol')? http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro- list/message/2341 "Dagny" <[email protected]> wrote in message news:[email protected]... > > > "Todd Gastaldo" <[email protected]> wrote in message > news:[email protected]... > >> > > Dagny, you wrote: > > > > "Of course my body was screaming at me not to be in the position she was born in and I am not > > going to repeat that scenario in a future birth." > > > > Whatever position you were in - I must give my usual warning to pregnant women - do not deliver > > on you back/butt because it closes your birth canal > > up to 30%. > > Easy to say Todd but hard to follow through on in an assisted birth -- particularly when you have > been in labor 24 hours and you have put in your birth plan no back or semisitting, your midwife > has convinced you to push without urge, you are on the birth stool uncomfortable saying to your > midwife "I am not supposed to be on my tailbone am I?" and she replies only > "Been reading Todd Gastaldo have you?" and then semisits you on the bed -- and you just want it to > end -- and end up with PTSD in addition to the physical damage. > > -- Dagny Maybe Dagny is just kidding about her midwife saying "Been reading Todd Gastaldo have you?" But I don't think she is... The midwife could just as well have asked, "Been reading the medical literature from early last century?" The medical literature from early last century contains the simple biomechanical FACT that dorsal and semisitting CLOSE the birth canal. Also last century - there was RADIOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE indicating that dorsal and semisitting close the birth canal UP TO 30%... See PhD husband of a CNM... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2321 Arrrgghhh... I am so sad that midwife did that to Dagny and her baby - intentionally closed Dagny's birth canal up to 30% - if indeed she did. Again, thanks for reading. Sincerely, Todd Ds.
