Ok, a view from Canada, where we do have the health care. I love being told I need to wait 6 months for an MRI...particularly when a high profile sports figure can get one the day after an injury...before returning to the States. Thank God for ECMC in Buffalo that did it the day after I called for an appointment
I love the fact that we are told that we will see a specialist for a colonoscopy in a years time...and thats just for the consult!
I love taking my son to the hospital for chest pains (1 month after open heart surgery) and waiting 7 hours for a real doctor to look at him!
Stitches or broken bones? Pack a lunch and bring a blankie, going to be a long night!!
Don't get me wrong, the hospital staff and doctors do a fantastic job with what they have been given to work with. Financially, they are so strapped they have become severely understaffed...at any hospital.
The government NEEDS to get out of health care and let the professionals who know what they are talking about fix it.
Was always told in the military, do not discuss politics and religion. But I think we need to, in order to be heard by the collective deafness in our parliments / congress
