“I got a message that said, ‘Your shift has been covered,’” Lin told the paper.

The hospital employed Lin for 17 years under a contract with TeamHealth, a national health care staffing company.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The American Dental Association has instructed dentist’s offices to remain closed through the end of April in most cases as part of the effort to slow the transmission of COVID-19.

But some dentist’s offices are opening their doors under certain circumstances for the very same reason.

Statistics show Americans go to hospitals once every 14 seconds for dental problems, or more than 2 million times annually.

“My main goal in being open at this time is to make sure we play a role in the health industry and kind of help prevent the clogging up of our emergency rooms,” Parkville Modern Dentistry’s Dr. Matthew Yip said.

Parkville Modern Dentistry looks a little different than it did a month ago. You won’t find people in for routine cleanings and regular checkups right now.

But that doesn’t mean Yip isn’t staying

What Are the Different Types of Hospitals?

With the growing complexity of the healthcare system, patients now have a considerable array of choices when it comes to receiving care from providers. This often includes the option of selecting what type of healthcare facility they wish to utilize from a long list of many. After all, the 2018 AHA Hospital Statistics reported here were 5,534 registered hospitals in the U.S.

And like the complicated healthcare industry, medical malpractice lawsuits tend to be one of the most complex types of legal claims requiring experts specializing in this type of law. One reason for this is the wide variety of types, features, locations and services of hospitals today.

The 2018 AHA Hospital Statistics reported here were 5,534 registered hospitals in the U.S.
