About TLB

  • Philip Jessup proposed the idea of a transnational law course. His vision of the subject was broad, including public and private international law; state and non-state actors; business, administrative, and political affairs; as well as negotiation and litigation. Inspired by his idea, TLB is only constrained by its pursuit to address all law transcending national frontiers.

The leap from using a computerized system in health services to claiming that the Stimulus Bill allows the Federal Government to set a broad range of regulations determining what medical care patients should receive by Betsy McCaughey and Rush Limbaugh is astounding and once again shows their dishonesty. Great work in uncovering a lie! These fabrications need to be uncovered because the right likes to misrepresent the facts to the detriment of the American public and to the detriment of health care. I previously worked as a hospital systems consultant and the companies I worked for were very careful and ensured patient privacy. I assure you regulation via computerized records was the last thing anyone wanted or would allow. These are the same kinds of nuts who are holocaust deniers or who disbelieve evolution. These are not people who look at the facts and base judgments on the facts or evidence. The computerized records would save lives and prevent the biggest killers in our hospitals, adverse drug reactions. Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, an allergic reaction to medications, is a very serious problem, especially in immunocompromised individuals, such as is found in the hospital population. I personally litigated several of these cases. There is a very high morbidity and mortality rate for SJS and TEN (Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis)
and it appears that it is increasing in incidence and prevalence. The provision in the stimulus bill is logical and will save lives. Furthermore, it would provide invaluable scientific data to study the epidemiology of a variety of chronic and acute diseases. Don't listen to these right wing know nothing nuts!
