Babe and Skittles, I love a happy ending!

A couple of months ago, I got a survey from CMS. They are the ones that overlook how Medicare is doing. It got tossed out by mistake before I could fill it out. Well, this week I get a letter with another survey that starts with;

Dear Mrs. Addie, We recently sent you a survey and have not received your response yet. We are enclosing another, blah, blah. We are told that these surveys are anonymous. So how do they know I didn't send it back. There is a window on the back of the survey with a control number in it. Now I am debating on whether to send it back or not. I have filled it out. But it is sitting here waiting a decision. This particular survey is for patients under the care of complete care facilities like ESP. It determines what ESP can do to improve the care we receive with recommendations from Medicare based upon the answers they receive from the survey. It is the "anonymous" violation that is my hangup. I feel like I am being lied to.

Do I send it in or not?

Send it in Addie. Your anonymity is protected from people who could impact your care but the folks doing the survey are usually a different organization who report back to your caregiver. No feedback means no improvements.


Babetoo, YAY!!! I am so glad your furries are home safe. Skittle...glad your mom is doing well.

My petty little vent is - Why do I have two huge, painful, throbbing underground zits right between my eyebrows? Really? I will say again that I think it is patently unfair to have zits and wrinkles at the same time. Mother Nature, please choose one and remove the other, thank you.

Yes, send in the survey. Like Alix said, it's anonymous to your cargiving company, CMS can't fix what it doesn't know is broken.

I will tell you the same thing I have told all my kids and grandkids over the years and it works. Take a clean facecloth, run it under hot water as hot as you can stand it and put it on the zits. The heat will draw them to a head so that they will break ON THEIR OWN sooner. I promise you in less than six hours they will be gone and you will have no scars as long as you don't try to break them yourself.

Thanks Addie. These suckers aren't budging for ANYTHING. I've done the hot facecloth thing and all kinds of other things too. My grump is that I have zits at all at my age! Sheesh!
