“Which Is Having A Worse Year, Obamacare or NHS?” [Darleen Click]
For the “healthcare is a right you, teatards! Only Big Daddy Government should be in charge!” Progressives, here’s the future under ObamaCare.
The bureaucrats at the Dept. of Health and Human Services and those at Great Britain’s National Health Service should consider getting together to compare notes on 2013.
I don’t know who would come out the winner in the pity competition, but at least the ObamaCare exchanges aren’t abandoning 1 in 4 women who are giving birth:
One in four new mothers were left alone by midwives when they were in labour, the NHS watchdog has revealed.
Some were forced to give birth on the floor in waiting rooms, having earlier been told not to come in as they were ‘not in enough pain’.
Other women said they felt ‘lonely, helpless and uncared for’ after being made to wait two hours for morphine following a caesarean.
The NHS’s chief inspector of hospitals Professor Sir Mike Richards, who oversaw a survey of 23,000 women, said some cases were ‘shocking’.
He added that failings in maternity wards were turning what should be the ‘most joyous’ experience of a woman’s life into one of the ‘most frightening’.
The NHS primary care doctors are refusing to refer at least 50% of cancer victims to “fast track” appointments for tests. Patients are being left outside hospitals in ambulances for inordinate amounts of time. And many patients are so discouraged by being unable to get appointments, they are just giving up.
Proggies like to whine that without ObamaCare, people just clog up the ER for routine care. However, in the perfect storm of coincidence, between doctors and hospitals refusing ObamaCare plus ObamaCare’s own Bronze Plans will not pay for routine appointments until after upwards of $5K deductibles are met, what makes anyone think the ERs will not increase, let alone be only actual emergency cases?
NHS, obamacare, single-payer, socialized medicine
