Guam - Guam Medical Association President Dr. Thomas Shieh says his organization is surprised and disappointed not because of the alarming findings of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services report, but because hospital management didn't inform physicians of the situation. Dr. Shieh believes better communication could result in physicians finding solutions to the problems.
He told KUAM News, "Expired medications shouldn't be there, used catheters shouldn't be around, those need to be separated. We know how to answer these questions but if the administration thinks they can answer these questions better than the actual doctors whose in practice then let them do so."
