You might think that the Grinch has created this present health care scare but that would only be a comparison.
A friend relates this story that did not have to be…
A mother of two children who had no insurance came into the emergency room and was diagnosed with pneumonia.
The Emergency room treated with antibiotics and sent the girl home.
The next day the woman died of complications of pneumonia.
Now where is the health care for those at risk?
Where is the health care for those that the affordable care act was designed to help?
Emergency rooms are turning gravely ill patients away and sending them home without the basics needed to survive.
Imagine what it must have been like to sit at home hoping that your breathing would improve, trusting that the treatment you received would save your life only to at the last moments of your life to realize that you could not breath.
Your children asleep and unable to help and likely she was not even able to make a life saving call to 911
This situation may sound dramatic but it is the truth and it happened just the other day.
In fact it is happening all over the United States every single day.
The biggest problem is not just the heartless liars that run the Emergency rooms but it is also the congressmen and senators that refuse to do anything to stop this abuse and make no mistake it is abuse.
It would be inconceivable to turn away someone that was dying just because they had no insurance but this is what is happening and it is happening more than you know.
We have to put an end to this bad behavior by doctors that swear an oath to do no harm yet they are participating in this madness that is killing people.
We must hold these people responsible for these crimes and that is what they are crimes.
Only when a Doctor faces criminal charges for denying care to a patient that results in death will they then do the right thing.
Then the threats and the manipulations by the administration of hospitals all over the US will end with a doctor making a decision which is the way it should be anyway.
The way it is now, doctors are not making these decisions because they are afraid to make a decision that would cost the hospital a few additional dollars as in this case an overnight stay would have likely stabilized this mother but now her two children have to go through life without a mother all so that a hospital that receives millions in charitable contributions as well as federal aid can save money so it an be spent in other ways, tell me how these evil people can even sleep at night?
The truth is this is just the tip of the iceberg soon they will have committees that will decide who gets help and who does not get help.
If you have insurance you will have a much greater chance of survival and if you do not all you can do is pray…
