Coronavirus has lead to a reduction in visitors into Nursing Homes and long term care facilities, due to the fact that if the Coronavirus were to get into a Nursing home it would devastate the community and kill a high percentage of their residents. As for right now Podiatrists are not seeing patients in Nursing homes. The fact is it maybe a while, if ever, that Podiatrists are let into Nursing Homes again.

The fact is Podiatrists in nursing homes see a high percentage of patients there. What happens if one acquires the Coronavirus? What would this lead to? Mass infection. Also there are no precautions a Podiatrist is going to be able to take that are going to prevent further infections. The answer a lot of Nursing Homes will come to is have a nurse that works there perform the services. The fact is Podiatrists that are primarily in nursing homes may not be getting back in and should hope that doesn’t occur.

Not sure what makes you think I haven’t done some of that. “sitting at home” was a metaphor. I do miss the GUN RANGE THOUGH. CLOSED AND FORBIDDEN WITH POLICE ENFORCEMENT TO ENSURE IT! There’s a certain cathartic flying a few 9mm or.45 caliber rounds through a target that doesn’t shoot back at you! Ass hats, as you call them, have the force of law and police behind them.

Poem for the DP WTF
Clip, clap, sell some podiatry crap.
huge student loans, no place to roam
buy this, sell that,
boy my spouse is getting fat
bunion funion
this aint’ the newpaper onion,
Im a dupetrist, a sad walking joke
the tire with no spoke,
a dumb bloke
because, I clip, clap,
sell that podiatry crap
maybe someday it will be grrreat
in the meantime, it’s time to masturbate
forget to fornicate, no time to defecate
read bm news,
hot tar, honey on a turd, silly shoes? you got the podiatry blues?
listen to the dancing fat man
the idiots with no plan.
maybe perhaps someday it will be grreat
in the meantime, just masturbate.

You’d have to freaking crazed/doped out/drunk, OR Limb Salvation podiatric surgeon to step foot into a nursing home/nail garden. But, the prize for pods was getting a nursing home gig—slipping on piss in their galoshes and scrubs, to cut nails…Maybe some P people got a dose of sanity and said: “This ain’t worth it—maybe.

COVID CONFUSION! There’s never an end to podiatric misinformation and quackery, and PM News is the best place to find it. Despite proof that podiatry has only a very minor need during the Corona Crisis, brainwashed, deluded TECHNICIANS WITH A DOCTORAL TITLE KEEP THEIR FOOT SALES BUSINESSES OPEN…. RISKING SPREAD! ONLY 17% OF the NON DOCTOR “drs” are CLOSED according to the Block meister! MONEY RUNS PODIATRY AND KEEPING THE BIZ OPEN IS PODIATRICALLY PARAMOUNT. ARTICLES LIKE, “HOW TO CODE DURING CORONA” HAVE A DIFFERENT MEANING TO THE NON MD’S. To REAL DOCTORS a CODE means keeping a heart pumping.Read more »

When you read the term surgical TECHnique, what is the operative prefix? Tech! Manual, foot carpentry is a TECH-NICAL skill more than a cerebral skill. So, all you ACFAS cigar smoking “trauma” technicians better swallow some humility. Compared to the half of the podiatrists that were FLUNKED (by the ACFAS) you might be a big deal, but in the world of MAINSTREAM MEDICINE and particularly Orthopedic surgery, you are just a minor, local, helper technician.

My best personal nursing home clipping story….just opened my office (1984). Not much income. Internist in office next to mine, Dr. M. asked me if I was interested in being the podiatrist at a local nursing home where he was medical director. Sure. Why not? Clipping toenails there one morning when Dr. M. called me over, asked me if a certain patient was on my list, she was, told me she died last night but he wouldn’t pronounce her until after I saw her. He was serious. Smiled and said I don’t treat patients after death. He laughed . DoubtRead more »

Nursing homes, more than hospitals, are the true home of the podiatrist. They have been a reliable income stream (as well as audit traps) for many of the half of the trade the sx board FLUNKED. Even the biggest of the big foot carpenters are technicians compared to the orthopedic MD so what does that make the remainder of the trade? Fancy “Technicians with a doctoral title”. (twadt’s)
