Health News

Hi all,

As you know this page collates information from around the internet.  The information is always attributed to the author and back linked so that the authors can benefit from improved search engine optimization (SEO).  One site we aggregate involves wound care.  It is an American site, for Americans.  It posted information for nurses and included new product information.  It was useful for the nurses we work with, and our ability to navigate the NIHB benefits plan helped healthcare providers access those products for their patients.

Today we got a call from that website.  They no longer want us to share the information they post, because its theirs.  It was an interesting discussion, kinda like the verbal equivalent  of a certain someone’s twitter feed.  So we won’t share their information with the nurses who use our site and we will never mention their name again.  Want us to re-direct you?  Well, normally we would but,,,,read above.

Moral:  When talking to a stranger, don’t lead with your fist.
