Obama/Pelosi/ReidCare Preview

As we gaze into our crystal ball...

we can see the future in Universal Health Care:
Unannounced visits by inspectors from the Care Quality Commission found blood spattered on curtains and chairs in the A&E ward, a catheter bag on the floor, poorly-trained nurses and patients treated on trolleys.

A commode was soiled under the seat, nurses were failing to feed frail elderly people and patients had pressure sores.
The key findings (graphic)

There was no paediatric nurse for most of the time so children were not getting the best care.

The mortality rate in the A&E ward was 6.1 per cent in 2008, more than a third higher than the national average of 4.4 per cent.[...]
But certainly the management has paid the price in the past.
'We're sick and tired of NHS managers and senior staff walking away unscathed when families are left with a life sentence of grief.'
Wait a minute. Is this health care or Cap and Trade?
