What is with all the recalls on medical devices, medical treatments and natural supplements? Is anyone really doing their job? Is enforcement too lax or is it too onerous causing companies to cheat to merely get a razor thin profit? Under regulation, over regulation, corporate malfeasance, criminal behavior, class action lawyers – what gives? Not long ago, this became a conversation of debate at our think tank.
One think tanker mentioned that there were some rather unfortunate hip-replacement recalls a few years back. Yes, I have heard of the hip recalls they spoke of and have watched a YouTube Video graphic of the problem. Terrible, I mean how can they recall a hip? Ouch. I have a steel rod in my leg from a motorcycle accident many years ago – it basically ruined my running career even if my high-performance athletic days were over pretty much by then.
What is bad is that it is obviously pre-existing and I never took it out, because I couldn’t spare the down-time from my business and being self-employed, well, I’ve never really had the time to take it out, now I don’t even know if it is safe too, plus I am deathly worried about the MRSA and I don’t trust hospitals anymore – not to mention costs, skyrocketing health care insurance, etc. – anyway, what I am saying is I can relate, with the problem aspect of your ‘problem-solution’ concept.
Well, if that sounds bad consider the challenges with vitamin supplements? Even if the FDA did enforce regulations in that space – I still see the challenges with the FDA and supplements and the controversies there. I worry too that too many supplements are now being made in China or with ingredients from there, that scares me, and the FDA only has one office in all of China. If so the vitamin sector would die, and people would be without.
I asked one of our think tank members if he was worried that with the long-haul process of getting things approved that it could slow down natural supplement companies turning all that over to big pharma, and thus, eliminating choice to the consumer – if all natural supplements had to go through the FDA?
One member suggested that certain natural supplements be looked at for special cases such as a natural lubricant, or a mixture of natural supplements with various drugs or in addition to treatments – because I see that as a very wise thing, especially as we learn more about enzymes, proteins, and we just need a little boost somewhere to get the patient over the hump of their ailments so the body can take over and make it right again. Think on this.

Medical care in Dubai and the UAE varies, as anywhere, from poor to excellent. The UAE has about 35-40 Government hospitals and a similar number of private hospitals although with developments like Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), there is rapid expansion in the number of private institutes ready to fix your bones and take your blood. Additionally, there are 150 or more Primary Healthcare Centers in the UAE.-
Government hospitals in UAE often get a bad rap but in terms of medical attention, this is perhaps a bit harsh, notwithstanding the press reports of less than satisfactory medical attention. You will probably find the biggest difference between government and private hospitals is "Customer Service" for want of a better term. Dormitory style rooms rather than private hotel rooms are the norm, and staff shortages mean nurses especially, are overworked and underpaid. But you will usually get the medical attention you need, at least in Dubai and Abu Dhabi anyway. Sometimes, for major medical procedures, a private hospital will ship you off to a government hospital anyway.-
In the other emirates medical treatment might be more questionable, and it is common for residents in those emirates to go to Abu Dhabi or Dubai for medical procedures, especially major ones. Communication in English might also be difficult in more remote areas, depending on the nationalities of the doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff. Communication in Arabic might be difficult, also dependent on the nationality of staff you're talking to - many hospitals employ doctors and nurses who might not speak any Arabic, but usually non-Arab nationalities employed all speak English, as do the majority of Arab nationalities employed, especially in Abu Dhabi and Dubai private hospitals.
