    I have Type 1 DM and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. In the past two years I have had nine extended hospitalizations and three major surgeries. Although I see some progress in patient-centered care, (and much of my care was superb), patients are still not fully accepted as bona fide team members by everyone on the medical team. New technologies are proliferating rapidly but hospital culture remains stubbornly resistant to change.

    The implicit agreement at admission often means we must check our personal and professional identities at the hospital door. I am a Psychologist and Certified Diabetes Educator and there is nobody in the hospital better qualified than I to manage my glucose. Try telling that to a hotshot new resident or Nurse Ratchet.

    Hope MedX finds its way to the East coast. Why do all the cool things always happen in California?
