In case you missed it: healthcare spending squeeze, "baby whisperer"
Healthcare spending for Massachusetts communities has nearly doubled since 2001, squeezing town budgets and forcing cutbacks in public safety and government services and leading to calls for property tax increases, according to a story in Sunday's Globe.
Enny Wiederhold (left), a retired nurse and hospital volunteer, is known at Brigham and Women's Hospital, the "Baby Whisperer." Part stern grandmother, part medical professional, she has carved her own niche in the highly specialized world of neonatal care. While the nurses on the floor check the babies' heart monitors and make sure the delicate infants are breathing properly, Wiederhold is there to make sure they are held and comforted, a Sunday Globe story says.
