From the land of socialized medicine, Britain, a woman died on the operating table 4 years after a drunken fall left her with a 6 inch toilet brush handle stuck in her derriere.
You see, she fell in 2005. It was 2 years before any doctor would take her seriously. In 2007, 2 operations failed to remove the handle. 2 years later, she was in so much pain, she opted for a dangerous, and eventually fatal operation. The problem – the handle had been embedded in her butt for so long, it was now part of her pelvis.
Oh yes, her husband is suing.
“OK she was drunk, but they didn’t take her seriously,” he said. “She showed them the wound, but they didn’t do a proper examination. I think it was probably down to the hospitals trying to save money and doing things as cheaply as possible.” source
Did you catch that last bit? This went unnoticed for 2 years because the hospitals were “trying to save money and doing things as cheaply as possible.” That is socialized medicine for you. And that is what America is headed for with Obamacare. Fun times, huh?
