Another Adventure in Socialized Medicine

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.

    In the end game of this cultural sickness, breathing will be a racist act for a white person.

    In a way we already have socialized medicine. Nobody can be turned away from the ER which now have become clinics for those who have no insurance. I’ve seen anything from a scratchy throat to a headache. Those with a more serious illness will get admitted and treated regardless of insurance now. Medicare and Medicaid has become so completely upside down the federal government has cut back on reimbursements and those with private insurance are compensating through higher premiums. Either way you look at it we get screwed. As far as these shitty nurses, this is a direct result of PC management hiring on color rather than merit. And most in healthcare here are fleeing due to Obamacare reimbursing on patient satisfaction rather than quality care. So it’s become a game of kissing ass rather than doing what’s right for the patient. But it won’t be long until people start getting fed boiling soup or not having an IV properly inserted due to an over flooding of improperly trained or unqualified nurses in places they don’t belong. It’s already getting scary….depending on where you live.

    Webster redefined racism,
    racism; the act of pointing out inadequacy in another persons abilities or character by a Caucasion person.

    Well, they haven’t yet, but if Das Kapital in Chief Obama has his way, they will soon

    After seeing how much attention they gave to their Queens Jubalee, all I could think what a horrible waste of taxpayers money. They are flushing there once great country down a third world s@!$hole and still are on bended knee to a Monarchy that is is more like a Walt Disney ride than anything else. Just one thing UK just give us your version of Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond before you go because our version sucks.

    My husband, a physician who speaks fluent Italian was once hospitalized in Italy. After watching the nurse improperly place his cardiac leads during a cardiogram, being placed in a six bed room with someone with suspected Avian Flu, being given improper medication, no sink in the room with nurses NOT washing their hands between patients, no face cloths, no towel, no blankets, he pulled out his own IV and removed his cardiac leads and walked out before they killed him.

    OH, forgot to mention it was all “FREE”. “.

    So, if someone does something stupid, if you point it out, you’re a racist if the person who did the stupid thing is of a protected race?

    What if the stupid nurse was Polish?

  • Ian

    @Geeknerd. Don’t you know that Polish nurses aren’t stupid ? (They’re not black either-coincidence ? I suspect not)

    I live in Canada so know first hand what socialized medical care is. The worst part of government care is not the crappy attitudes or lack of training, it is the waiting. You wait for anything and everything. I know people diagnosed with cancer who have had to wait up to 6 months to get into the operating room. I am sure that the main reason is, if 20% of the people die before they are operated on, that is a 20% saving in costs.

  • geeknerd

    Ian,

    I’m from southern Wisconsin; the only place on Earth Pollocks and Krauts can live together in relative peace and harmony (until some Heinie bastard starts telling Pollock jokes).

    But to Lefties, we’re all “white.”

  • Bob Roberts

    I figured out why the left is so determined to socialize medicine.

    It can only result in a radical increase in their core constituency.

  • Antisocialist

    I was promised surgery back in the 80s in Sweden and still hasn’t gotten this promised surgery, socialized medicine is bs.

    Our ERs are filled with arabs and africans that are there because they have a cold and the retarded doctors and nurses don’t kick these tards out.

    Socialized medicine is bs in every country you find it in, and the resources are all eaten up by the third worlders, everyone that can afford it go to private doctors and hospitals because all the pro-doctors and nurses went private, left you have people that don’t even speak the language and got their degree from a package of corn flakes.

    Guess it’s retro-style healthcare….all the way back to the Middle Ages!

    I work in healthcare…and what happened to this poor woman is just unthinkable. I hate to imagine the changes that Obamacare would bring to patients here in the US. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will take care of the Obamacare problem and then reasonable changes to healthcare can take place, changes that won’t create a barbaric, British-style system.

    The poor practices and stupidity of the employers of one single NHS funded hospital does not mean every single NHS hospital is like that – especially since this story seems to me to be a hideous strawman from a paper notorious in Britain for exaggerating and misrepresenting stories to make a good headline. I’d like to point out that the Daily Mail appears to be literally the only newspaper reporting this story, when scandals of this size (especially concerning healthcare and race issues) are normally reported in all of the popular national papers.

    By the way, I’d also like to point out that I’m British and I owe my life to the NHS for treating my cystic fibrosis. This was when my parents didn’t have much money and almost certainly couldn’t afford to treat me and feed me at the same time. In a country like America, where 15% of people have no health insurance and 18,000 uninsured people die a year from easily curable illnesses (not a great track record for a country that spends 15.2% of its GDP on healthcare, as opposed to Britain’s 9.8%) I might not have survived.
