The real picture
nursing homes thus, enhancing their quality of life and cutting medical costs. Competitive bidding and oxygen reduction will cut costs but it will also force whatever companies survive to cut costs by providing less services, inferior equipment and less control of the patient outcomes.

Eliminate competitive bidding and stop the oxygen cuts now.
