  • Why do we need health reform anyway? | Day In Washington
    qualify for Medicaid under South Carolina s guidelines because she had not yet been found disabled by the Social Security Administration Since she had no treating physician every time her blood sugar went too high or too low she went to the local emergency room ER for treatment She continually complained to the ER staff that she had a sore on her right foot that would not heal No one evaluated her for this because they were concerned with getting her blood sugar under control Every ER visit had notations of her unhealing sores but provided no treatment Eventually she insisted that the doctor look at the worsening sores on her foot Once the doctor saw her foot she was immediately admitted and the next day her leg was amputated below the knee The surgeon could not remove all of the leg that needed to be removed and wanted to wait a few days because it would be too much of a shock to her system The sores were so bad that even with the amputation osteomyelitis had set in and before the next surgery could be performed she died Prior to her death there was a record of 52 ER visits and 14 inpatient visits in 18 months Neither the hospitals nor the surgeon will be paid for their services because there was no Medicaid coverage before her death Access to affordable health care would have enabled her to manage her diabetes and most likely would have saved her life What really upset me was that the cause of death on the Death Certificate said Complications of Diabetes She didn t die because of diabetes she died because she couldn t access affordable health care THAT is why there needs to be a change in the system What exactly

  • Sonia Sotomayor Hearings and her Disability Cases (A Day in Washington Disability Policy Podcast) | Day In Washington
    court were investigating deeply enough apparently she was motivated by a genuine desire to accurately determine whether a plaintiff is protected by the law She has not been afraid to dissent or to argue that a person with a disability was not treated fairly Over and over it would seem that her decisions show a careful weighing of the evidence to determine whether a plaintiff was qualified to perform the essential functions of a job In one of the cases she authored a decision reversing a jury verdict against the plaintiff so that if a person with a disability asks to be reassigned to a different vacant position as a reasonable accommodation the company offering of an inferior position is not reasonable or appropriate when a comparable position is available Judge Sotomayor seems just as emphatic in her dissents In one particularly notable dissent she argued forcefully that the appointment of a guardian ad litem violated the constitutional rights of a woman who had received psychiatric treatments because she was not properly notified that she would have no control over her case once the guardian was appointed I find Judge Sotomayor s decisions in the education arena of particular interest She acknowledges that when families and schools disagree about what services are appropriate a student s success in school hangs in the balance and as a result such disagreements should be resolved as soon as possible In one case Frank G v Board of Educ Of Hyde Park 459 F 3d 356 2d Cir 2006 Judge Sotomayor held that parents can place their child in an alternative setting and get reimbursed for the cost of appropriate services if the public school fails to provide them even though they did not first try the placement offered by the public school district Her reasoning was that the schools were making the erroneous assumption that parents would have to keep their child in a public school placement until it was clear that the placement wasn t working basically a wasted year of actual failure For a child that can have significant long term impact She said Such a first bite at failure is not required by the IDEA However no judicial nominee is going to be perfect So to be upfront and fair lets look at cases that raise concerns In the relatively well known Bartlett case a woman with learning disabilities was denied accommodations in taking the bar exam Judge Sotomayor first found that the plaintiff was not substantially limited in the major life activity of reading because of self accommodation strategies she employed To be fair after the case was reversed Sotomayor did reconsider Her reasoning was that the legal landscape had changed and on remand she wrote that the plaintiff struggled through three laborious years of law school at no small fiscal or psychic cost To tell her now that she is free to go and practice another profession or to return to her prior field would not be consistent
