There can only be one explanation for those unsatisfied with the care provided by Britain’s socialized medicine — racism:
Sandra Hynes, 50, had only gone into hospital for a simple operation to relieve her acid reflux, but following complications was left with a punctured right lung.
She had to stay in for an extra two weeks and was put on morphine and oxygen to cope with her pain.
But further problems arose when her morphine drip and oxygen needed replenishing over a weekend.
Astonishingly, the staff on duty had not been trained in how to insert a ‘cannula’ needle into her hand, and struggled to provide new oxygen, leaving her in excruciating pain.
When she was given morphine orally instead, and began hallucinating and crying, a member of staff told her off.
Her patience finally snapped when a nurse fed hot soup to a blind patient in the bed next to her, leaving her blistered and screaming.
Mrs Hynes told the junior nurse — who happened to be black — that she should have tested the temperature of the soup before serving it.
Moments later the nurse’s superior, Staff Nurse Maureen Nwadike — who is also black — arrived in the ward, and told horrified Mrs Hynes: ‘You’re racist.’
Mrs. Hynes’s stay in the collectivist hospital was so horrific that at one point she attempted to get out of her bed so she could scream for help from the window. She gasps,
‘I never want to go there again, however ill I am.’
Bureaucrats no doubt take pride in the cost savings achieved by scaring taxpayers away from the hospitals they are forced to finance.
On a tip from Henry.
